The French Skincare Brand You Need To Know

The French Skincare Brand You Need To Know

When it comes to skincare, I’m about as loyal as Tristan Thompson on a night out (not very), but one brand I have always loved is Biologique Recherche. First up, it’s French, meaning by default, I’m into it. Secondly, its hero product, the P50 lotion, makes me ~ feel ~ things. Sydney facialist and skin angel Melanie Grant introduced me to it a few years ago, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 It would be easy to write it off as simply a “toner”, but in reality, it’s so, so much more. It’s a liquid exfoliant I swear by for bright, clear, smooth skin previously reserved for newborn babies only. “Liquid exfoliant,” I hear you say… “I’ve got one of those!” I hear you, but I assure you they are not all made equal.

It’s not my proudest chapter, but we all have our skeletons.

The Coolest Sneakers To Shop Online

The Coolest Sneakers To Shop Online

Every now and then, a trend comes along that is so great it makes me wanna throw a victorious fist into the air, not unlike a boy in a coming-of-age romance film might after he finally nabs a date with his crush. The Great Sneaker Revival of 2014 was one such trend, and in great news for feet everywhere, it still doesn’t look like it’ll be departing anytime soon (or hopefully ever), due to the style after style of the coolest new sneakers, emerging every season.

At present, I can safely say that around 80% of my shoe collection comprises of sneakers, and that figure is only on the rise. Part of their charm lies in their versatility. There are so many different styles available at our fingertips (as evidenced in our shopping edit below), so you can constantly hit refresh on your everyday wardrobe by switching up Read the rest
