See this product? It is EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. It's heaven in a jar (that looks like it's been designed by NASA, incidentally). I love it so much that I hate using it....because I'm scared of it running out. La Prairie 3 Minute Peel is an exfoliating face mask that uses AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, which get rid of dead skin cells), BHAs ( beta hydroxy acids, which work on unclogging pores), & leaves your skin looking brighter, plumper, & more smooth than you can imagine. You use the cute wee brush to apply the product in upward strokes, leaving it on for the specified 3 minutes (no longer, because this stuff is STRONG), wash it off gently...and voila! Hiiiiiii angel face! I love this product forever.
Oasis Beauty is totally boss, for so many reasons. Their NZ-made products are top of the line, cruelty free, perfect for sensitive skin, made with organic & natural ingredients- & they all smell AMAZING. I've been trialling Fruit Smoothie, which is a scrub AND a face mask (simply leave it on your skin a little longer before rinsing off) that contains delicious things like pink grapefruit, papaya, pineapple & pink clay. It leaves my skin feeling so fresh, smooth & soft, & I love how long this bottle is going to last me- a little amount goes a long way! I've heard Fruit Smoothie can be especially great for acne-prone skin as well, so definitely don't be scared of giving it a try- it's lovely!

Fragrance group- White floral
Top notes- Orange, Bergamot, Currant buds, Pear, Pink Pepper
Middle notes- Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Iris, Tuberose

Kirk's notes- Ohhhhh my goodness I love it. I'm a sucker for white floral fragrances anyway- but this beauty really bowled me over. Like the name suggests, it is intense- but in the best possible way! This could easily be a signature scent, it's so distinctive and beautiful- as well as being unbelievably long-lasting. Not for the faint hearted; if you like to make lasting impressions with your fragrance, you really need to check it out!

I LOVE serums. I love them more than any other skincare product, and if given the chance, could talk about them all day. Environ Focus Frown Serum is a product that I have been having a love affair with lately, because it really does WORK. Okay- disclaimer: you don't wake up one morning with a wrinkle free face...but if you use it twice daily, any fine lines WILL be significantly lessened- & really, that's good enough for me. It works by softening muscle activity around your eyes and forehead (those frowny-prone areas), which smooth out existing lines & keep imminent lines at bay. I LOVE IT. I wish I could bathe in it.
Montblanc Lady Emblem EDP
Fragrance group- Fruity floral
Top notes- Pink Rose, Peach, Marmalade, Red Currant
Middle notes- Rosewood, Patchouli, Sandalwood
Base notes- Raspberry, Musk
Kirk's notes- First of all, I need to express how in love I am with this packaging! A pink glass diamond shape- dying. It's so pretty! Not as pretty as the fragrance though, that's on a whole other level. Montblanc Lady Emblem is super feminine, and is a scent that I can see myself wearing all through spring and summer. It really is so gorgeous. Guys LOVE this, and I love it because of how unique it is, and how it makes me feel girly even if I'm being a slob kebab in trackies!
It's been ages since I wrote about Benefit, so I'm really excited to tell you guys about this new product. Air Patrol is a multi-tasking lil angel (it even has wings)- & as described as being a BB cream for the eye lids. Essentially, it offers SPF20 protection, preps the eye lids with a fantastic colour correcting shade of pale yellow (swatch here), and makes an excellent primer for eye shadow- my eye makeup didn't budge for ten hours straight! I've also been using this on it's own for days where I don't fancy wearing eye shadow- my eyes look fresh, hydrated & happy. The soft squishy applicator is perfect for use around the eye area...& the packaging is CRAZY cute. Out in October, Air Patrol is a must try.
I've talked to you guys about how much I've been loving the Davines hair care range (check that post out here to catch up!), and I decided awhile ago that I simply must try some of the products from their styling range. LOOK AT THAT PRETTY PACKAGING!!! I've been using the Sea Salt Spray so often these days that I've nearly run out already, and it is FAB. So many sea salt products make my hair crunchy, greasy, & weighed-down- not this guy! Check out the Davines how-to vid here to see how I use it (except I do it myself ;) ). The other product I've been loving to death is the Invisible Serum, which gives a softer tousled style with a beautiful shine- & makes my hair smell divine! It also takes care of any frizz, & has a light hold-perfect!
