Body and health

1. Rosehip by Essano Intensive Hydrating Body Lotion, $16.99

5 stars overall

“First of all the scent is not too overwhelming, it is a light fragrance which smells quite good. I love the way it feels on my skin – it feels quite light for a full body moisturiser and it absorbs quickly. The rosehip, jojoba and aloe makes my skin look healthy and vibrant whilst feeling soft all over. I enjoy these ingredient so much I also bought a rosehip oil for my face.” – Vanessa430

2. Manicare Cellulite Bristle Brush, $15.99

4 out of 5 stars

“This is a great brush and in my opinion a superior product to any ‘cellulite cream’. You brush the skin twice a day for five minutes. Using the brush on dry skin, sweep with long strokes towards the heart, starting from the feet and working upwards. It doesn’t hurt (and I have super sensitive skin) it just leaves your skin tingly and a touch pink, which goes away quickly. My skin is definitely much smoother after using this, and I have more energy – an unexpected bonus! This is now a mainstay of my beauty routine. Apparently the French swear by it, and I can see why. Definitely recommend.” – Edlie


3. L’OCCITANE Cherry Blossom Solid Perfume, $16

7. Designer Brands Twist & Go Instant Nail Polish Remover, $4.99Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 4.56.56 PM

5 stars

“This instant nail polish remover is the most amazing thing I have ever used! So easy, no clean up, no offensive smell. Beautiful clean nails. I was dubious about the claims of removing nail polish with so little effort, but it is true. Finger in the foam, twist a couple of times and the job’s done. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.” – Melody261

8. Revitanail Nourishing Oil, $14.99

5 stars

“This product is ah-mazing. It dries quickly, even though it tells you to massage into cuticles for one minute. I find that when applying, giving it a quick rub and then leaving it to dry has the same effect. It smells heavenly, and calms me down (so damn relaxing) and it pampers your cuticles. I usually use this product just before I post my nails on Instagram, they look so healthy and moisturised!” -Linh_xx

9. Ulta3 Nail Polish, $2.30

4 out of 5 stars

“These are great little polishes, they’re in a decent sized bottle with a nicely sized brush meaning easy application. For $2 a bottle they’re well worth the cost, and with their incredible range you can get pretty much any colour you’re looking for.” -Cherry Ace

10. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, $14.95

5 stars

“Best cuticle cream I have EVER used. The scent to it is just delightful and I love how after continuous use it has repaired my ripped cuticles and prevented them from getting infected. Just Perfect.” -pattie.s


11. Chi Chi Super BB Cream, $19.95

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 4.53.09 PM

5 stars

“I am obsessed with this product and onto my third tube of it. I use it every day and it makes my skin look amazing.
I love that it is moisturising and has a SPF. The colours are quite versatile, yellow based and the coverage is amazing! If you just want a little bit of coverage, this will do it. But if you want a bit more, just layer it up / pat it on the areas you want more coverage.
The smell took me a while to get used to, but it leaves a really nice texture and glow to the skin. It also lasts all day. I totally recommend!” – bh member minn880

12. Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation, $6.73

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 4.54.28 PM

4 out of 5 stars

“This is one of my faves. I have pale, freckled and normal-dry skin and it gives me perfect coverage. The colour blends perfectly with my skin tone, and it’s a great daytime foundation if you want moderate coverage. It didn’t break me out or irritate my skin like so many others do. This is a highly used item in my make-up bag, can’t do any better for the price.” – bh member duality

13. Ulta3 Moisturising Lipstick, $3.95

4 out of 5 stars

“Ulta3 lipsticks really surprised me, with the cheaper price point I was expecting a poor quality product, but what a pleasant surprise when I purchased one of their lipsticks on a whim.


14. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, $9.29 (125mL)

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 4.34.05 PM

4 out of 5 stars

“I tried this Cetaphil cleanser just recently as a change and it’s been wonderful. It removes my make up, cleanses really well and it doesn’t sting my eyes. It doesn’t lather too much which is good because I don’t waste too much water when cleansing. It doesn’t irritate my skin as it’s got a really light texture. This has definitely become a part of my regular skincare routine.” – bh member Jenna320

15. Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, $19.99

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 4.34.53 PM

4 out of 5 stars

“I love this miracle cream!! It absorbs quickly and evens out my skin tone very nicely. It looks nice and natural and can be used as a moisturiser base before foundation or on its own. I also like the smell and packaging.” – bh member nataliadimi

  1. Definitely a few I will get here. I know and use Ulta3 lipstick – I have used it for years and find it stays on longer than any expensive brand

  2. Bit worried about the Pantene conditioner a hairdresser told mw once it has floor polish as one of the ingredients …… not sure how true that is.
