Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil

Lately my skin has been breaking out like crazy, especially on my chin area and one of the life saver products has been the Tea Tree oil, also known as Melaleuca alternifoliais
This is a natural antiseptic essential oil suitable for everyday use all over the body.  The oil is extracted from a plant native to Australia and cannot be found naturally occurring elsewhere. Tea tree oil is known for its topical antiseptic and anti-fungal treatment or infection-reducing benefits. It also has antibiotic properties and helps aid against aliments such as skin infections, rashes, burns, dandruff, bug bites (mosquitos!) and much more.
Using it on the skin is very simple. I either apply it to a cotton pad or just put a drop or two to my finger tips and then tap and massage it into the skin where I have any irritations. If you have an open wound from squeezing zits (come on, we all do it!) you're going to feel a slight burn and tingling, but even the most sensitive skin shouldn't get irritated by using it.
Apart from using it on your skin, tea tree oil can also be used in the household and as a remedy for other discomforts, like earache. 
Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil is available here online, but you should also be able to find one at your local pharmacy/drugstore.

Current Haircare Routine (Redken Extreme line Review)

With the ultra famous fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni (from The Blonde Salad) being the ambassador of Redken haircare and styling products I became exposed to the brand and decided to try some products from their 'Extreme' line. I've been using this routine for about a year now and I feel like it has really helped me restore my hair's strength and natural shine.

Summer calls for a lightweight body moisturizer and this Elizabeth Arden body cream delivers! It has a very soft texture with small blends of real honey and green tea fragrance that conditions, moisturizes and helps calm dry skin.

Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream & Lip Conditioner

Caudalie is a french skin care brand that is focused on natural & environmentally friendly ingredients, especially grapes and their beneficial effects on the skin. Their products are free from parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, genetically modified organisms, paraffin, synthetic artificial colourings, sodium laureth sulphate, phthalates and animal-derived raw materials. 
Recently I've picked up this hand cream and lip balm duo to get to know the brand and I was very impressed.

Real Techniques Eyes Starter Kit Brushes Review

The Real Techniques Starter Kit for the eyes includes 5 brushes and a case for storing which also comes in handy when traveling. I've been using this set for more than six months now so I thought it was about time I did a little post about it.

Bare minerals - Shine On palette

I fell in love with Bare Minerals' original loose mineral foundation as soon as I first tried it about a year ago and after that I felt like I needed to try more products from their range.
