  2. Remember that whatever you post on the forum is public - so only share information you're happy for anyone and everyone to know. We strongly recommend you do not post contact details or any personal information such as where you live.
  3. Please respect the anonymity of members - even if you know a person in real life, or through another online community, respect their privacy and do not pass on contact details to other members.
  4. The BR Forum is primarily a beauty forum, and we'd like the majority of topics to be beauty related. However we're also a community and appreciate Non-Beauty Related topics will come up. Please put NBR in the title of any such threads.
  5. Keep it clean - we don't want to have to send you some soap to wash your mouth out! Please be aware that minor expletives for some, can be offensive to others.
  6. We all love a good home remedy but please do a test patch first.
  7. Beauty Review does not recommend the use of any unlicensed supplements or products and will remove links to such products.
  8. The forum is a great place for support and sharing experiences but when it comes to medical advice nothing can substitute that of a qualified professional.
  9. We love hearing about your experiences of beauty services, such as salons or retailers. Honest and critical accounts will make New Zealand's beauty industry a better place - but please don't just slander a business.
  10. No one likes a spammer!  We are occasionally spammed (fake replica watch anyone?!) but our mods do their best to remove it quickly.

  16. Please link in the correct manner - long/untidy links make the forum look untidy and harder to navigate.

That is exactly the kind I am thinking of, getting some old bottles with the pump sprayer if possible. I have found a couple videos online and some threads on different forums that talk about how to re-fill different topped bottles, so I think it will have to be a trial and error process to find out what ones work best.

I was just watching Gothamista review some mineral sunscreens and would really like to try some of them that she has suggested.  Can anyone recommend a legit website to purchase them from?

I'm interested in:
IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour
La Roche Posay Anthelios Mineral Ultra Light Fluid
Murad City Skin Defense

I found La Roche Posay on Pharmacy Direct but have never purchased from them before, has anyone else here tried them?

100% L-Ascorbic Powder
Vitaminc C 30% Suspension in Silicone

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

OH!  They are also releasing Sunscreen!!!  What an exciting day!!!

(NMF = Natural Moisturising Factors which is a great moisturiser for those with sensitive skins)

For roughly $6.80 NZD you really can't go wrong with it.  If it works, buy more, if not then you haven't spent a lot of money on it and can just give it away.  

It's a rich white gel typed primer.  You can get away with using a small amount as it spreads so easily.  It doesn't smell, it doesn't pill (for me anyway), whenever I have used my tinted SPF over it the colour is absorbed immediately without patchiness that needs to be patted or massaged in and it lasts all day with only one blot.  

It also hasn't made me break out which is a super bonus!

I don't use primer, I've never found one I liked or did what it was supposed to until I tried this one.  

It doesn't smooth out pores, I think you'd have to try the Hymalide Blur for that but it does make your skin nice and matte.  For this price point and the job I've seen it do, I can't get enough of it.

How do you refill perfume bottles? I'd love to know as I have a few empty bottles that are just too pretty to throw away. I think there are facebook groups where you can trade perfume and empty bottles.

Hey Beauties, thanks for accepting my account on your wonderful forum. I have found so many great tips already by just skimming through I thought I would ask my own question. 

What are you favourite classic fragrance bottles, either the style or the individual bottles. I am trying something where I go and fill old perfume bottles with the nice little sprays to make the house/car smell better. I think it looks really good so far, and it feels amazing to use one of the old bottles with a pump on it inside your car. 

I would love it if you all could give me some pictures of the bottles you have in mind so I can try and source them, or even better would be places online that sell the bottles already empty. I am sure you lovely ladies will be able to help me :)

I read your post k3r1pakai and said "Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! surely not!" but it's true :(.  I suppose it makes a lot of sense, Estee Lauder has a huge global connection and massive amounts of money behind it but let's just hope they don't interfere with the products or the formulas of what DECIEM is trying to do (I REALLY want to get my hands on some Hand Chemistry!!).  

Thanks for the tips on the websites!  My latest order from Beautylish which I placed just over two weeks ago still hasn't turned up yet but here's hoping it's not too far away.

I was using Paula's Choice products exclusively but as I have used The Ordinary more and more I am dropping most of PC's products.  If The Orindary make a cleanser and SPF though, PC would be in serious trouble from me :).

I have tried most of the line from The Ordinary and love it all except the Glycolic Solution.  This one broke me out but when I used it, it could have just been overload from trying all these new products.

I have seen more results in days of using The Ordinary than I have in months of using Paula's Choice.

My favourites are:
Advanced Retinoid 2%
Azelaic Acid
Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc
Lactic Acid 5% - was scared of using this but it's sooooooooo gentle
High Adherence Silicone Primer - as somone that uses mineral foundation, I was blown away by the performance of this product!
The Buffet

I love the others I've tried but these guys are exceptional.

I like the azeliac acid and the vitamin c although it's gritty it's best to apply when your skin is wet to prevent the gritty feel. Also liking the lactic acid too.

A NZ site sticks it too but a lot is out of stock. Lefemmebeauty. Estee lauder purchased the company that owns The Ordinary brand too so hoping they keep the price range and it's formula

You can also get The Ordinary from Asos! That's where I got my first order. They don't have the ascorbic suspension but do have some other Vit C serums.
At the moment my favourite The Ordinary product is the azelaic acid. I feel like it's making a difference for my redness! Just gotta remember to use it regularly...

   I don't have the Foreo Luna 2 but I have the first one for normal/sensitive skin. I have to say it was one of my best beauty buys of purchases of 2015. I haven't used a conventional cleansing brush like the Clarisonic but after I wash my face using my Foreo my skin does feel a bit softer. I have used scrubs alot less since purchasing it. As for the anti-aging treatments on the back of the brush, I honestly haven't seen hardly any results from using it twice a day for over a year. I guess if you tend to knit your brows and have alot of tension there it can massage it a bit and help it relax and so you don't get lines in your forehead as soon or as deep. It didn't do anything for my laugh lines either. 
    
    So if you want you could save a bit and go for the Luna Mini which costs less and is smaller and doesn't have the anti-aging function like the big sized one. The mini is smaller and has a smaller cleansing surface so when you clean your face you'll cover less space on each of the areas on your face during the 1 minute cleanse and you may have few speeds to choose from but other than that, I don't really see a huge difference in skincare benefits between the original and the mini. 

   Oh and you can't use scrubs and cleansers that have grainy bits or manual exfoliants in them because it will scratch the silicone surface. It also says to avoid using clay based cleansers with it. I think Sephora.nz sell it I would order off there and if you have 300 points you can get a 10% discount, because you purchase it off the official website you could be charged for import tax but with Sephora you shouldn't have to pay taxes. 

   Overall it's a fantastic buy, even though the anti-aging side is overhyped. I used to use mine twice a day and then cut back to every night and now since I plan to use chemical exfoliants I'm using it every other night or when my skin needs an extra good clean.

Hey lovelies, 

So I've been researching skin care and looking into natural skin care that meet the needs of my skin (super fussy, super sensitive, super dry, the list goes on lol).  It seems to be a popular trend to use cleansing brushes however there are quite a few options and some different opinions about using them.

There seems to be a big hype about the Foreo brand in cleansing brushes and are apparently deemed to be much better and less damaging on your skin compared to the usual popular brands like Clarasonic etc.

My question is, has anyone purchased a Foreo and loves it? Thinking of purchasing one as it seems to be more hygenic than attachment brushes however they are quite pricey so thought I would see if anyone has one or maybe another alternative perhaps on the cheaper side lol.

Here is a link to it for anyone that is curious about what I am talking about :-)

    I feel good when I use up things that I know are close to expiry date before they expire or if they did already but I'm not fussy about it (bodywashes, body lotions and stuff like that I'm not a stickler for expiry dates), then use them up and I can go on to stuff that hasn't expired and gradually I have room for more stuff and stuff that I know I love.

     I've been panning through skincare and bodycare this year. I haven't hit pan on any makeup yet though besides tossing a mascara that was too old and an eyeliner that needed to go.

I dont know about you ladies but I have for lack of a better word, hoarded a boat load of skin care products, this includes shampoos and conditioners as well as body washes.  So today was the day, everything came out of cupboards and drawers onto the bed and away I went.  It took about 3 hours [I knew it would be a big job] so now I have a beautifully organised bathroom cupboard and drawer.  Everything is in date order so I use the oldest first and will finish that one before I start another one.  I also managed to do the same with my lipsticks.  So now my girls have 2 shopping bags and 30 lippies to share.

Such a great feeling. Do you all feel good when you do this?

Jolse has a big range of products and their samples are super generous. But my personal preference is actually roseroseshop. Their shipping is ridiculous (like insanely expensive) but even after factoring in shipping, some of the stuff are cheaper than the other sites. They're especially good for buying bulk samples, like sulwhasoo mini samples. I bought about 100mls of sulwhasoo emulsion and paid probably less than a fifth of retail price. 

I think the best way to compare is to build your cart on multiple different sites and see how much it ends up being after shipping is added.

    When it comes to Korean beauty products, I buy sheet masks, essences, ampoules, masks anything that would be expensive in the more Western brands. 

   I think also ebay some sellers offer competitive prices for sheet masks and free shipping. It does take awhile to ship though. I think iherb has free shipping if you have things marked with a shipping saver in your cart and spend I think around 55NZD. But it's not fast shipping. Despite that iherb is a fantastic place to shop from as they have loads of stuff and very affordable as well.
