NEW RELEASE - MUD MAKE-UP DESIGN COLLECTION 2017


Last year I attended the MUD Makeup Design Development breakfast were we got to see first hand how a product is created all the way to the finished product. (You can read about it here and here).  If you haven't heard about MUD yet, MUD is a brand exclusively stocked at Woolworths offering consumers a bargain quality line of cosmetic essentials with prices ranging from $3.00 to $12.

MUD have released an additional 28 products to add to their existing beauty collection of 42 to 70 products. I'm super excited to share these with you. Here's a sneak peek of what is coming to a Woolies near you.

NATRALUS AUSTRALIA - NATURAL PAW PAW SKINCARE REBRANDING

Natralus Australia entered the market in 2009 with a range of amazing natural skincare products. Fast forward to 2017, they are still 100% Australian-owned and operated business, which is quite reassuring as quality control will never be compromised.  


And to start the new year, Natralus has given their packaging a make-over.

Natralus's new look is eye catching, bright and easy to read and to ensure customers are able to spot their favourite Natralus products immediately with their fresh new design.

Even though the packaging has changed doesn't meant their formula has. Every product works exactly the same way, smells the same way and feels the same.

I personally prefer the new packaging.  It's vibrant and happy. Definitely easier to spot in store.

DISCOVERING: BARRY M BEAUTY


I love beauty products. I love them more than my wallet loves them. So to ease the pain, I spread my purchases over time instead of large hauls (except during crazy sale time)!

But when you come across a value for money brand, it is really hard to resist to purchase almost the entire set!

Born and bred in the UK, Barry Mero founded Barry M in 1982, Barry M became a household name and known for his daring colours in hair and makeup.  Today, Barry M is one of the UK’s leading mass-market colour cosmetic companies, due to his extensive colourful range.

Barry M have extended their marketing to Australia, giving us more choice and competition amongst competitors in the market.

BRAND FOCUS: VEET - WAX AND CREAM HAIR REMOVAL


Veet has been around as long as I can remember. Mum has been using it since the 80s and then I began using it. The selection of products we have today is far bigger than 20 years ago. 

There are two ranges that are available - Silk & Fresh Technology and Natural Inspirations Range.


Silk & Fresh Technology Range

While it removes hair effectively, the new range of Veet Hair Removal Cream also hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours. With it's new fragrance technology, it ensures that there will be no lingering mal-odour.
