Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Kavisha Jegathesan, Wellness WA Contributor & RMIT Master of Wellness Student.

First up, briefly tell us a little bit about yourself!

In a nutshell? I am extremely passionate about holistic health and living well. I am also a huge foodie and have a passion for healthy cooking and baking. I am currently studying for my Master of Wellness at RMIT University.

Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser!

Tell us about your daily beauty routine.

When it comes to skincare I try to use natural and organic whenever possible. I cleanse & tone daily with Paula’s Choice one step face cleanser and healthy skin refreshing toner (colour & fragrance free). I use Lush’s Angels On Bare Skin as my daily exfoliant.

♥ Korres

I’m also a huge fan of Korres (natural & certified organic Greek skincare brand) and am currently using the moisturiser, serum and mask from their Wild Rose skincare range. Korres available from StrawberryNET and Kit Cosmetics.

I’ve just started using Sukin Organic products on my body and hair. They use cold-pressed, solvent free oils, essential oils and 100% natural botanical extracts and their products smell great!

What’s the one beauty treatment you can’t live without? And your favourite place to have it done?

I always have to have painted nails, so I give myself weekly manicures!

Who do you trust with your hair in Perth, and why?

Jo at Raven Hair Design in Bicton. She’s an amazing hairdresser and is so passionate about her work.

Favourite budget / at home beauty treatment?

Coconut oil as a hair mask and also eating healthy fats for glowing skin. Healthy fats are the natural fats found in avocado, chia seeds and wild caught salmon, high in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids.

Your three, absolutely cannot live without, favourite products?

Coconut oil (I use the NiuLife brand), Korres wild rose 24-H moisturizing brightening cream, Lush Angels On Bare Skin.

Do you have any secret tips you use to keep looking / feeling great?

Food is the bodies’ best medicine! Looking good starts from the inside out.

Eat SLOW! Seasonal, Locally produced with lots of colour and variety, Organic, Whole, fresh and with minimal processing.

Stay away from the white stuff (white pasta, white rice, white bread, sugar) and limit alcohol consumption.

Always remove makeup before bed & don’t wear foundation!


What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet? (Due to time, money, scared etc!)

Sodashi skincare, a hot stone massage, reformer Pilates, a juice detox, a raw food ‘cooking’ class, so many!!!

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

Breakfast: Organic full fat yoghurt (Barambah is my fav) with banana or blueberries, bee pollen & home made muesli (rolled oats, quinoa flakes, chia seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, shredded coconut) or Eggs (scrambled or poached) with veggies and greens.

Lunch: A massive green salad full of protein and good fats or nori wraps! At the moment i’m loving kale/spinach, a hard boiled egg, edamame beans, roma tomatoes, avocado, herbs from my garden, goats feta, pumpkin seeds & basil pesto.

Dinner: If I’m home it’s usually salmon with steamed/baked veggies or cumin baked sweet potato fries.

Snacks: Fruit, organic nut butter, almonds, green smoothies.

Drinks: Water, green tea, herbal teas.

Describe your fitness routine.

I exercise 5-6 x a week. I like to mix it up between cardio (RPM, boxing, Jacobs ladder), weight training and flexibility (yoga, body balance).

Do you take part in any alternative therapies or take supplements? If so, discuss.

I start each day with a green drink to help detox and alkalinize the body. At the moment I’m trialing Extreme Superfoods Green Smoothie Booster. I also take fish oil, vitamin c, and magnesium supplements daily.

How do you like to relax? What are your favourite ways to de-stress?

Meditation, getting a massage, catching up with friends, baking, watching a funny movie!

Kavisha will be sharing her in-depth knowledge of all things wellness with us a couple of times a month! We love her, and you will too. If you have any questions about her routine, please comment below 🙂

Be well,


Beauty & Wellbeing Crushes: Amazing Tinted Moisturiser, Punchy Lip Colour, Detoxing Bath & more.

♥ ♥

This crushes edition is pretty product-centric because there are just so many amazing things that have flown into my world in the past few weeks, I’m super excited to share ’em with you, so lets get started 🙂

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser

I’ve been a longtime fan of the regular Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser, and probably a little reluctant to venture away from what I know and love! The illuminating version takes it to the next level, while you can wear it on it’s own (it’s SPF 20), my favourite way to use this is mix a dollop with my regular, fairly matte foundation and watch the compliments roll in.

If you want a fresh faced glow, this is going to go a long way towards getting you there! Add plenty of sleep, green tea and exercise in and you’re set. It also comes in 4 shades, I use ‘Bare Radiance’, am a total ghosty-face and I LOVE it. RRP $78 from Adore Beauty.

Seven Wonders Argan Oil Spray

This stuff makes sleek, shiny hair almost too easy to achieve. Having tested out the rest of the range in a previous crushes post, I was a fan, but I was finding that having to rub the oil on your hands and apply to the hair was putting me off a bit. And then swoops in this guy, all spray-nozzle and thinner consistency.

Through a bit of trial and error, I’ve found the best way to get shiny, but not oily, hair is to spray one pump onto your brush and then run through slightly damp hair. This goes against the key beauty rule of NEVER BRUSH YOUR HAIR WHEN IT IS DAMP EVER EVER EVER, but really, I think we all secretly do. If you don’t, comment below and I will heap some praise on you!

This method has given me a lot more control over rogue flyaway hairs & will also make the bottle last a looooong time. Approx. $32.

Franc Essential Serum

I’m loving this crazy right now. As a girl who is obsessed with her rosehip oil almost exclusively, this serum took me by surprise. It actually does contain rosehip oil, as well as: macadamia, apricot kernel, avocado, carrot, centella, evening primrose, vitamin e, geranium, lavender, rose & sandalwood oils. Quite a few of which are organic. The vitamins that make my skin react so well to rosehip are in here, as well as a whole party full of other good stuff as you can see.

The smell is also far superior, kind of a musky-candy scent, and a little goes a loooooong way. I’m still testing this out but I can safely say that my skin really enjoys drinking it up at night, and I am thoroughly enjoying the way it looks in the morning. Winnah. RRP $72.

Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour in Sweet Nectar

Before Sweet Nectar, I’d never worn a bright lip colour. Reds & multiple shades of pinky nudes yup, anything a bit out there – nup. I adore this, slicking it on gives me that little bit of extra confidence, even on a regular day at the office. It goes on super easily, and when worn with a glowy foundation (as above), some mascara and a little creme blush you’ll have the ultimate easy beauty look. It also contains an SPF of 12 which is handy!

While the RRP is $44, there are some awesome deals available on StrawberryNET with some of the other Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colours from $14.50!!! Worth a look if you’re after some high-quality, but cheap, lippies.

Detoxing Clay Bath

At the moment I’m reading a detox book (more about that in the next crushes edition) and have become interested in possibly doing a light detox of my own. Nothing too full on, just a lot of healthy eating, green smoothies, yoga, quinoa salads, tofu and veggies, and no junk. The last part is the trickiest! Even though I do eat healthy the majority of the time, I am quite keen on my indulgences too.

When I heard about the detoxing Mojave Green Clay Powder, I thought it would be a good way to ease into a detox. It felt great to have a clay bath, though I didn’t have any symptoms of detoxing such as a headache afterwards, I’m going to keep up with them once a week or so and more frequently when I start my real detox and see how I go! $19.90 for 450 grams.

That’s it for this week, hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions or suggestions about my crushes then feel free to leave a comment below!

Be well,
