Australian digital entrepreneur Elle Ferguson is the ultimate cool-girl. The TheyAllHateUs blogger is not only talented – she has awesome style, never-ending blonde locks and the ultimate golden tan. When Elle created her own tan line Elle Effect, I had no doubt that it would be exceptional and was a desperado to try it. You know that saying ‘you only want what you can’t have?’ well, Elle Effect sold out almost instantly upon the first few product drops which meant it took me a while to get my hands on it. Obviously, as a beauty junkie this only made me want the tan more. So, just how well did the tan stack up against other fantastic ones I have tried?

To kick off my first blog post of 2018, I thought I would share my haul from Clean Beauty Market – a beautiful store located on the Gold Coast which sells non-toxic and ethical products. Think everything from makeup, skincare, haircare and personal care! I have always been conscious of the ingredients and chemicals in my products, so I am always on the hunt for high quality natural and organic products.
When I arrived I was greeted by the lovely Erin who is the owner of Clean Beauty Market. Erin is so knowledgable and was really helpful at picking out my makeup shades for me. The space itself is beautiful, light and clean with all products laid out and easy to navigate. There is a really nice vibe in the store that makes you want to hang around all day.

I remember a time when I only thought you could exfoliate your skin by using abrasive scrubs – how young and naive I was. Exfoliation is the key to beautiful glowing skin because it sloughs off dead skin cells and allows for better product absorption. The questions most people ask me are: how often should I be exfoliating, and what type of exfoliator should I use? I always say this truly does depend on your skin type and concerns. For most people exfoliating 2-3 times per week is more than enough, however for me I exfoliate more frequently as I suffer from congested skin. There are several types of exfoliation methods: chemical, enzymatic and physical – which can be a bit confusing, but I will explain all.

If you walk around almost anywhere in Australia right now the most heard phrase would probably be, “it’s bloody cold!” A few degree drops in temperature sends us into meltdown. I personally love this weather but I’ll admit it does take a toll on the skin and can make you look a little dull. If you think because it’s winter you can slack off in the beauty department sorry but you are wrong my friend – now is when the real work begins. The only way to scrape by in the chill is to faux the glow.
