Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Concentrate for Hands and Body: Are You Ready For This Jelly?

Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Concentrate for Hands and Body

I hadn’t heard of the brand Hand Chemistry until I stumbled upon a blog post by Jane from British Beauty Blogger. At that time, she and goodness-knows-how-many British beauty bloggers started talking about Hand Chemistry products and I must say, I was really intrigued by the Hyaluronic Concentrate for Hands and Body. Jane rates this very highly, which made me wonder, how the heck am I going to get a hold of this because I’m obviously not based in the UK? I wondered. And then I forgot about it.

Fast forward many months later, I saw one of the Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic products mentioned in one of Caroline Hirons‘ YouTube videos and I remembered “hey, I wanted that Hyaluronic Concentrate!“. So I went to the website and whaddyaknow, they actually ship to Australia! This is what happens when I don’t do my research properly. Tsk tsk. :P

I picked up a couple of items from the DECIEM website (that’s the umbrella brand for Hand Chemistry) and a couple of weeks later, they arrived. I’ve been using the Hyaluronic Concentrate for about a month now and I’ve formed a bit of a love-hate relationship with it.

Talking Scents: Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic

This is not a new scent by Guerlain. In fact, it was launched in 2007 but I only heard about it end of last year. This was introduced by LeGeeque, who picked up a bottle of this at a duty-free store in an airport. She recommended this perfume to me and told me it’s right up my alley. Heck, when the word “mandarin” is plastered on any fragrance, you know I’d have to check it out.

First, I went to the David Jones store at the Chadstone Shopping Centre but was told that they don’t stock the perfume and suggested that I try the store in the city instead. When I went to the Guerlain counter at David Jones (this wasn’t available at MYER either), the sales assistant told me that they only order the Aqua Allegoria perfumes in twice a year, that they’re customer orders only and if I wanted to get on the “waiting list”, I had to wait till the next order opens in September. I politely declined and left.

All the while, I was thinking “Are you kidding me? You wanna put me on a waiting list for a PERFUME? Oh hell no!“. :P

The Bedtime Tag

The Bedtime Tag

Some of you may now know that I’m a bit of a YouTube addict now and as I was watching some of the videos I subscribed to one evening, I stumbled upon a fun tag created by Fleur de Force and Talk Becky Talk and it’s called The Bedtime Tag. It was too cute to pass so I thought I’d do it as well. No videos from me (sorry!) but hey, a blog post should suffice, right? :P

As the name goes, it’s all about bedtime and preparing to zzz.

Let’s get started!

Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer: The One With The Freaking Big Wand

Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer

I first heard about this foundation from one of Kristina’s YouTube videos (she’s from Pretty Shiny Sparkly). I thought it looked pretty interesting and had a good laugh when she took the wand out of the foundation and exclaimed at how big it was. When this foundation also landed on my desk for review, I must admit that the first thing I did was check out that ginormous wand and geez louise, it’s big!

Okay, let’s go back to the beginning just in case you’re wondering what the heck is this wand that I’m going on about. Here’s what Clinique claims: It’s a 2-in-1 liquid foundation and concealer that promises full coverage without the weight. It smoothes on as a foundation or spot-applies like a concealer. Hence the “magic wand” or as I’d like to call it “that freaking big wand”. :P
