Active Nourishment 
Shampoo & Conditioner



I have long colour lightened hair which needs extra TLC so using a nourishing, effective shampoo and conditioner duo is quite an important and necessary part of my weekly hair routine. Over the past few weeks I have only been using this pair three times a week with satisfying results.

Even though these are made for 'Normal Hair' types and my hair is more oily at the roots and dryer toward the ends, I thought it did a great job at keeping that happy medium following the days after washing. My hair felt more even in texture and in regards to moisture levels, not being at all oily on my scalp or as dry toward my ends which was a welcome and noticeable change! 

I have always had a soft spot for Aloe Vera and have a stack of it sprouting out all over my little garden so to welcome that scent into my hair was lovely and refreshing. The subtle scent lingering after washing the following day. 

Standard, fuss free, easy to use packaging with attractive colours and image on the front.
Competitively priced and great value for money, I recommend everyone giving these a try!


Using this conditioner together with the Active Nourishment shampoo, I found this duo worked well together as a pair. The conditioner was easy to use and distribute evenly throughout my hair whilst I showered allowing any knotty bits to untangle easily and become smooth. 

The scent smells identical to the shampoo and doesn't over power your nose so you can still breath easy through the steam as you shower.

Easy to use tube which unmistakably matches it's twin the Palmolive Naturals Aloe Vera & Fruit Vitamins shampoo. 

Recommended to families of all ages and hair types. If it can work on my temperamental hair which can't work out weather it wants to be oily or dry, then what do you have to lose? :)

Currently RRP for $4.99 each for 350ml
(Also available in a huge 700ml for $7.99)

(You can always watch the unboxing video first?!)

Okay, so I am mega behind with my online blogging life, what with Christmas, the New Year and
everything else that goes on in my life behind the scene in the real world.... so much happening I
cannot even begin to explain. I feel like I am working 24/7 and hardly sleep. It is all for the best
though, not going to get anywhere in life for myself and my family sitting still. Just working hard
for where I want to be. Thank you to all who are sticking by me & understanding!

That being said, blogging still is and always will be a huge passion of mine, however sometimes
other things in life are just more important and need my attention, so forgive me. I am going to get
caught up as much as I can as soon as I can when I find the time... like now usually late into the night.

Visit the Japan Candy Box Website!

So who has heard of the Japan Candy Box? A few months ago I stumbled across their 
Instagram page and the rest is history! The company kindly agreed to send me their October
box to review and just look how generously jam packed it is!! There are ten different, very
cutely packaged delicious unique yumminess just screaming to be devoured immediately! 

You can sign up to receive your own Japan Candy Box for just $19.90 per month and they ship
for FREE world wide! You also go into the draw to win over $100 worth of goodies in the
Japan Box Megabox raffle! #winning 

How cute are these little guys!? Oh my gosh, crisp cookies with gooey strawberry centre
and an array of printed Koala's on each of them? Uh YASS! :)

These were a little plain in terms of flavour and a little dry. I found myself needing to guzzle a
huge glass of water afterwards, however I did not eat them all. My Mr 2yrs was more than happy to
share them with me.

These grape flavoured candy balls were SOUR to the max! Lots of fun to eat and once the sour outer
layer was dissolved there was a hard sweet layer and finally a small chewy bit at the end.

These were much the same as any regular soft gummy lolly, however not as in your face sweet
as say your typical 'Allens' here in Australia. Very pleasant to eat, I feel like as I get older I can't
seem to enjoy the super sweet gummies as I used to. They are just too much for me now in terms
of sweetness.

These were delicious! So so yummy, probably one of if not the favourite item in the whole box!
Equivalant to the size of a 10c (AU) with a soft creamy icing middle. These tasted so light and
crisp in your mouth. I recon I could easily eat about five of these packets in one sitting. 0_o

These instantly reminded me of the 'Hello Panda' packs you can get here in Australia from Coles and
a few other other places. I am unsure of the exact flavour here. It looks and tasted like it might be
cookies and cream. It was amazing! Cleverly portion controlled, probably for the better as I doubt
I would be able to stop myself eating these if I had more packets laying around. 

No, these are not mini jelly beans. Yeah they fooled me too because they look exactly just like them!
These are more like a softer more gummy like version of a jelly bean. Again not as powerful in
sweetness and flavour. But honestly, I prefer them this way. 

We all love mango in our house. Anything mango flavoured never lasts more than a day and neither
did these, sadly. Chewy and soft at the same time. These were completely drool worthy! Not too 
sweet, but full of incredible flavour!

I am still unsure as to the point of the extra little box with the plastic toy inside when I came to this
item. The Whistle Candy came in a pack with eight baby pink hard donut shaped lollies. Easy to 
chew, the consistency of them crumbled and became quite soft as you chewed them, rather than being
super hard or crunchy. Oh and yes they do make a very loud whistle sound when you hold them in
your mouth and breathe or blow through the little hole in the centre.

Confirming my suspicion in my unboxing video, these are in fact one of those mini baking sets you
can purchase here in Australia from the toy section of selected stores. I have seen them in Myer and
K-Mart. You can choose from a selection from cup cakes to french fries! It is amazing technology!
I am not sure how good these would taste, but I know my kids will definitely have a ball making them
and that is enough for me. :)

Is your mouth watering yet? Drooling all over your keyboard?
I don't blame you! Sign up for your box here! :)

Hydraluron Moisture Jelly


Are you one of those people who or have you ever thought it is just too darn hot to even think about lathering on a moisturiser in the sweltering Summer heat? I used to be that girl. In my teens and early 
20's I lived in TFNQ and hardly ever even thought about moisturising my skin as the feeling after
applying was either suffocating or melty and gross. 

Fast forward ten years (give or take a few) and living in a slightly less humid climate and more aware
of just how imperative it is not to skip this vital skincare step, I now lather whatever I can get my 
hands on from head to toe religiously DAILY!

Including my face and that is where this lovely product comes in. :)

I have been using this tub of 30ml Moisture Jelly over the past couple of months and LOVING it!
Having previously used Indeed Labs Moisture Serum & Moisture Mask I am very familiar with the
brand now and know it is one I can count on and trust.

I don't suffer from dry skin, however I am more than aware of the fact that ageing skin often loses it's
high level of youthful moisture and can often become dry and age prematurely if not taken care of 
with a little help from products such a this one.

This stuff goes such a long way. Like I said, I have been using it for months and still have a fair way
to go to get through the jar. You only need a pea size amount of product to replenish the moisture 
levels on your skin on your face and neck. I use this both morning and night and began to really see
results after about a week and a half.

My skin appears more youthful, like a flower just bloomed. Well kinda, it just looks all pretty and
new, like I just crept back a few years and my cheeks are all plump and rosey all over again! 
Something like that...

My skin is fairly normal. It isn't sensitive, dry nor oily. It just... is. And this works great with it!
The product soaks right in quickly and leaves my skin feeling softer.

Interested? You can pick this one up at your local Priceline or Terry White Chemist currently for
RRP: $39.99 (Buy!)
