Antipodean Beauties: Winter

Last week could not have been more of a perfect week for this theme. Melbourne was channelling its inner Arctic, with wind, rain and freezing temperatures. So for week three’s challenge, I’m sharing with you some of my winter essentials. Also, since this is going up a little late, be on the lookout for this weeks theme, two for one!




Hand cream: A’kin Hand, Nail and Cuticle Cream. I still love and use this so much, and as like everything else, my hands needs moisturising too! You can check out my review here.

Hair Treatment: Eleven Miracle Hair Treatment*. This leave in treatment has been doing absolute wonders for my hair. I put a little bit in while my hair is still wet and it makes sure my end are silky smooth when dry, even when they don’t want to be!

Moisturiser: Embryolisse Lait- Creme Concentre. Such an amazing moisturiser, I use it at night after my Hydraluron and it has been doing wonders at keeping my skin hydrated. I need to pick another up at IMATS this year.

Waterproof Mascara: Maybelline ‘The Falsies’ Volume Express Mascara. This is the only waterproof mascara I have in my collection after I turfed a couple. I love the really bristly wands and the formula on this makes it perfect for awesome volume. Seriously guys, don’t get caught out in the rain with normal mascara!

Perfume: Diesel Loverdose. This spicy scent screams winter to me, and it almost has the smoky, wood fired feel to it. And hey the bottle is pretty special too!

Lip Scrub: Lush’s Bubblegum Lip Scrub. A long time favourite, and my lips’ saviour. If I go too long without using this, my lips certainly remind me bout it!

Beanie/Scarf: Winter is about rugging up and these are ESSENTIAL for a Melbourne winter. The amount of scarves I’ve accumulated over the last couple of years is ridiculous, but somehow I still love the same beanie year after year. I put it down to the fact I look terrible in most hats. Stick to what you know. And here is a little look wearing my two favourite winter warmers.



Hope you are all warm an snugly!
