Clean Beauty Market Haul

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.

The Beauty Chef Glow Powder

With an array of wellness supplements on the market, it can be a little overwhelming finding what’s best for you and what actually works. Personal experience has taught me that beauty and skin health begin in the belly, which is why The Beauty Chef is a brand that really resonates with me. Founded by former beauty editor Carla Oates, The Beauty Chef is a brand that focuses on promoting skin health through a balanced gut. While it doesn’t sound overly glam, whatever is happening in your digestive system will reflect through your skin. Happy, clear skin is often a sign of good gut health.

Brand Focus: Biologi

Biologi is an Australian skincare brand, based in gorgeous Byron Bay, that has created the world’s first 100% active plant serums. The serums are created from Biologi’s own extraction method that ensures the nutrients from plant cells remain active. What I love about Biologi is that each serum literally contains one ingredient. One. That means there are no fillers, fragrances, preservatives, other additives and the products are certainly not watered down. The plant extracts are also natural and certified organic and not created synthetically.


Biologi makes three serums*:

  • Bd Luminosity Face Serum
  • Bk Rejuvenation Eye Serum
  • Bf Hydration Body Serum

Glossier Makeup Review

Glossier (pronounced gloss-ee-yay) is the ultimate universal beauty brand. With the taglines of, ‘a beauty brand inspired by real life’ and ‘skin first, makeup second, smile always’ it’s obvious to see that Glossier focuses on skin and enhancing natural beauty. Glossier was created in 2010 by Founder and CEO of popular beauty blog Into The Gloss, Emily Weiss. Since Glossier unfortunately doesn’t ship to Australia (only the U.S., Canada and most recently the U.K.) I set up an account with ShopMate and had my products redirected to Australia that way. I purchased quite a lot of products, however this post will be about my thoughts on the makeup items first since I have had a lot of people ask me about them. I think I am so drawn to Glossier because there is such an emphasis on ‘Insta Glam’ at the moment and even though there is absolutely nothing wrong with that it is also refreshing taking a step back with makeup sometimes.

Brand Focus: Goldfaden MD

Goldfaden MD is a skincare brand that creates physician strength products inspired by nature. Goldfaden MD was founded by Dr. Gary Goldfaden, a Dermatologist who wanted to create results driven products minus harsh chemicals and unnecessary ingredients.

Goldfaden is a brand that I truly love because the products are active yet they don’t contain harsh ingredients, fillers, artificial fragrance, parabens and sulfates etc. Instead, the products are powered by awesome ingredients like: Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Red Tea Extract, Gooseberry Extract, Co-Enzyme Q10, Ruby Crystals, Niacinamide and Rose Hip. Three products that I have been absolutely loving from the brand are:


  • Bright Eyes Eye Cream
  • Vital Boost Moisturiser 
  • Pure Start Cleanser

Lush Halloween Haul 2017

I friggen love the holidays. Even though I live in Australia and we ‘traditionally’ don’t celebrate Halloween, I personally still like to because it’s a bit of fun! Whenever Lush Cosmetics launches their Halloween products I always know Christmas is around the corner too and that makes me super excited.

Yesterday I strolled into Lush with the intention of just browsing *cough* then ended up walking out with several Halloween items as well as two skincare products that I’ve used and loved before.
