Dr. Roebuck's Pure Body Cream

Australian-made and natural, Dr. Roebuck's is the natural active skincare line formulated 'for all things precious' aka our skin. The Pure Body cream is incredibly hydrating, enriched with powerful anti-oxidants from France, White Tea, Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E all working harmoniously with Shea Butter base.

My over-exposed to sun, dry skin is suddenly rehydrated, moisturized and tightened. The cream is thick in texture, but non greasy, free of nasty chemicals, and ensures efficacy for the most sensitive skin. It can also greatly help in the reversal of sun damage - which is one of the reasons why I've been using it.

  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Anti-aging
  • BPA & Paraben Free
  • Tightens skin
  • Hydrates well
  • Creamy texture
  • Non-greasy
  • Pleasant scent

Takes a while to apply all over the body

Overall, this is a luxurious body cream, natural, and made with some of the best quality ingredients. My skin felt a lot softer only after a few days - Pure Body is so soothing too!

Make Up Forever HD Microperfecting Primer

It can be difficult to achieve flawless skin, especially in extreme summer heat and bright sun, my face becomes extra prone to oiliness. Sweaty, greasy, and uncomfortable! Well, truth is flawlesss skin starts at the base and requires prepping and colour-correcting, those are are the very first steps of creating a perfect complexion.

Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer is on my list at the moment.  It's formulated light in texture and oil free to act as a  preparation product that creates a protective film, a shield preventing the foundation from penetrating the skin. What does this mean? It helps the makeup be more long lasting and more evenly applied. The primer also helps create a soft focus effect thanks to Silica Micro Beads in the formula - the beads refract both man-made and natural light to softly hide imperfections.

Best of all, the primer has nourishing ingredients which act as moisturizers protecting the skin from dryness, creating a balanced canvas for the job!

The HD Primer comes in seven shades that enhance natural colour:

0 Neutral - adds natural luminosity to the complexion
1 Green - minimizes redness
2 Mauve - neutralizes strong olive undertones
4 Caramel - adds a warm glow to deeper skin tones
5 Blue - gives porcelain finish to fair skin
6 Yellow - adds golden tones to dark complexions
7 Pink - adds brightness and warmth

I have tried the 0 Neutral and it's been good to me so far. It works well with my extremely oily skin and fills in most of the lines. A definite must try.

Invisible finish
Light texture
Smooths out the skin
Minimizing lines and pores
Gives a good base for even makeup
Made in France
Oil free
Suits every skintone

Can be pricy for some at $39
