Multi-tasking Magical Products!

♥ ♥

There’s a lotta love to be had for products that have more than one use, not only do you save money and time, but you also save on precious bathroom bench space, something which is worth an increasing amount these days!

Here are my three current favourites:

Jane Iredale Antioxidant Spray

Packed full of antioxidants and smelling like delicious oranges/tangerines, this product has a lot more uses than just pepping up your face on a hot day.

♥ Sets mineral makeup, of which Jane Iredale produce some pretty awesome varieties.
♥ Use to wet brushes to use with eyeshadow and make liquid liner, genius!
♥ Spritz over hair to control static.

The great news is that you can do all of this while smelling like summery citrus fruits. RRP $39.

Essential Kit Multipurpose Wonder Balm

This stuff beats regular paw paw balm! It’s certified organic, smells absolutely amazing – kinda like a chocolate orange, and 100% of the ingredients are from a natural origin. Plus NO animal testing or animal products and it’s made in Australia! SIGN ME UP 🙂 It even tastes yummy… should you accidentally (or not so accidentally) lick your lips.

Can be used for…

♥ Lip balm, smoothing eyebrows, giving your cheeks a highlighted glow, moisturising nails & cuticles, a thick body moisturiser, smoothing flyaways, soothes dry heels, protecting cuts, shaving… AND under wetsuits on long swims apparently!!!

It’s fast becoming a staple and comes with me everywhere. So much love! RRP $22.95.

Tisserand Ethically Harvested Lavender Oil

I’ve only just started to really get into essential oils and candles, but have always had a soft spot for lavender. Ah, quell-er of stresses, easer of sleeps! It’s always been good to me, and I’ve recently discovered that it has a lot more uses than I initially thought, lets have a look:

♥ A natural way to take the sting out of burns
♥ Super successful zit zapper – have been hitting this one up a lot lately, and it’s working!
♥ 6 drops on a damp flannel to help a headache
♥ Disinfectant for cuts & to help new skin grow
♥ And of course, a few drops on the pillow to de-stress & help you fall asleep 🙂

Wellness WA is AGAINST Animal Testing.

♥ ♥ ♥

Yesterday while out shopping, I stumbled across the Guide to Ethical Supermarket Shopping 2011, a compact little resource to take with you to the shops so you can make the best decisions about where your ‘dollar vote’ goes.

Like to shop locally and Australian made, boycott companies that test on animals and avoid companies and industries that take part in some horrendous practices? This is a fantastic companion and I sincerely urge you all to check it out and buy it if you’re interested in this kind of thing (which should be all of us!).

It’s only $6 and can be picked up at most bookshops or online.

It really is up to us to look after our animal friends. They don’t have a voice, and most of them can’t fight back. The saddest thing that I found out today when I was looking into it a bit more, is that beagles are one of the most common dogs tested on because they are so gentle, friendly and loving that they don’t fight back as much. This broke my heart.

And it’s why we’re not going to be reviewing products that test on animals from here on out. This means that some much loved brands wont be getting featured anymore. But it’s for the best, for our conscience, the earth and for the animals.

I hope you all understand and will still support us! 🙂

Product Review: Wotnot Naturally Nurturing Facial Wipes.

Wotnot Facial Wipes

If you’re anything like me and are in a constant mini-war with your face, fighting dry, sensitive spots one day and little breakouts the next, you’ll know how difficult it is to find a face wipe that settles down the battle zones.

Not to mention the difficultly in finding one that quickly removes your makeup before you fall into bed after a big night.

So the recipe for my dream facial wipe would go something like this…

♥ Doesn’t sting sensitive bits or aggravate breakouts.
♥ Doesn’t dry out and tighten the skin.
♥ Nourishing and calming.
♥ Takes off makeup in a flash.
++ Bonus points: Improves skin condition.

Almost impossible?

Enter our star and my new fav. product, Wotnot Facial Wipes!

This baby is a winner in my eyes because it does all of the above, contains heaps of organic goodies AND is environmentally friendly as it’s 100% biodegradable / compostable!

Why didn’t someone think of this before?!

So down to the nitty gritty…

Contains: soothing organic aloe vera, organic sweet almond oil, organic rosehip oil, organic jojoba oil.

If you guys didn’t already know, those three oils are the who’s who of the “oils that are good for making your face healthy & pretty” scene. So get to know ’em!

Does not contain: alcohol, chlorine, sulphates, petrochemicals, parabens, artificial fragrances, artificial preservatives, animal extracts and they are of course against animal testing. PHEW.

This guy wasn’t harmed during the making of these wipes! YAY!

This is all well and good, however we need performance as well as enviro-responsibility, and Wotnot wipes deliver on that front too.

It takes off my makeup in a flash and feels GREAT afterwards!

I love this product and won’t be giving it up anytime soon, it’s replaced my stinging wipes and now takes pride of place in my messy bathroom.

Wotnot Naturally Nurturing Facial Wipes are $11.95 for a pack of 25 wipes and available to buy online (with free shipping) at
