Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

If you have dry/dehydrated skin or if you travel a lot, this cleanser is for you.


It's 99% natural and free of fragrance and sulphates - i.e. it doesn't foam.


Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex 

This is an amazingly lightweight moisturizer that hydrates and lightly exfoliates the skin. ***Please note*** The second ingredient is peanut oil.


Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps 'Peppermint'

If you're into aromatherapy like me you're gonna love this. The bar soap in 'Lavender' is also great for washing your makeup brushes/sponges.


Coconut Oil

The health/beauty benefits of coconut oil are often raved about so I'm sure this is nothing new to you. What I've been loving most about coconut oil recently is the wonders it performs on my hair. Added to any hair mask it immediately makes a difference.


 Heath & Heather Echinacea & Cranberry Tea

Add honey or enjoy alone. It's good for you and tastes great.

 Bio Oil

Another product you've probably heard a lot about before. I'm about to start my third 2 fl. oz. bottle and I can tell you I will never be without this product. It's the first fast absorbing, non-greasy oil I've used.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
