Winter survival, beauty-wise, is a moisture-zapped nightmare. By the deepest days of July, your regular light moisturiser just doesn’t cut it anymore. So where do you turn when your circles are dark, your skin is sad, and your will is empty? We tried Ella Bache’s latest line of replenishing products.
When we were sent a large sachet of honey for our face in the mail, we were simultaneously confused and interested. With a long history in beauty, honey is both a natural ingredient and a famed anti-bacterial substance, so it made complete sense that someone, someday, would whack a bit o’ honey in a sachet and pop a $25 price tag on it.
I have to confess, I’ve never been into lip gloss. It always feels sticky, and tacky (in more ways than one…) But this lipstick lover may have just been converted after recently trying Luk Beautifood’s new range of completely natural lip colours made from food.
Yep, this is a product that you can lick off to your heart’s content – without being grossed out by that statistic that women consume 6 pounds of lippie in their lifetime.
I have the kind of pores that resemble Mary Poppins’ carpet bag – you could lose your keys, a car and your first born in them, they’re so big. So, suffice to say, I avoid makeup, I rarely use harsh products, and I have a barely-there beauty routine for fear of throwing my face into pimple-filled turmoil.
