   I think you brought up some very valid points there. It's hard to make a blanket statement. I know for myself I've had time of the months when it hurt so bad I was nauseous and bent over but still had to work. And times like the last temp job I had when I worked for five weeks and was on my monthly for two of those weeks. My job involved standing on my feet all day but I managed fine.

   I've mainly picked up spensy or new Asian moisturizers during sales. There's a Black Friday coming up in a couple weeks. I think if you want something that feels light maybe a sleeping mask there's alot of K-beauty ones that are really nice on the skin and fairly inexpensive. If you want something natural that has that high end nourishing but light texture, that is inexpensive, I remember being really impressed with the Skinfood Nourishing Moisturizer some years back.

Today I was having a 'my uterus  is trying to kill me' complain session with a work friend and we started discussing menstrual leave. 

When I was 21 and in my first full time job, which happened to be in Japan, I had a day a month I could take as 'Women's Leave' if I needed it. I think I only took it 2-3 times.

Theres quite a lot of chatter about this out there, and some very valid concerns that for some women a day a month isn't enough, some wouldn't need it, some would take advantage, some bosses would use this as an excuse not to hire women etc.

To me, women's bodies are different to men's (as well as to each other) and cause them pain, discomfort, bleeding and other UGH for anywhere from a day to a week a month, so it's probably time we were woke enough to consider what would be fair (and fair to women, not men, who don't really have an equivalent to suffer through for this particular issue). Each job is different too, and each woman, so it definitely wouldn't be easy but....

thoughts?

I'll be away so whether I'll be able to check it out depends on a few things - but not too worried for similar reasons to Silvene.

Im assuming there might be a Sunday round as well?

For night cream I love the essano Superfoods Kale one, they have a mini sample box of the superfoods products so you can try that first before committing to a full size. In terms of day moisturiser, I used to love the Goodness Every Morning Moisturiser, it no longer suits my skin type but it's very good. Bynature and Skinfood do decent facial moisturisers too.

(Plus all of the above are NZ made which is a bonus!)

Ooh, and it’s right before Christmas! ... I might have to sit this one out though, as I have a beauty advent calendar coming, so I’ll have a whole bunch of goodies already and not much of an excuse to shop the vault for more (storage space is a problem).

I love the Goodness range - it's a sister brand of Trilogy I think.  I lived on it while on maternity leave (and got picked for some awesome BR skincare trials!!)   To really boost hydration in my night time routine I use Goodness Chia Oil and their every evening cream over top.  Skin feels so good the next day! Often on special in the supermarket :)

I got this Olay moisturiser in one of the previous BR vaults, and it was surprisingly good.  Other brands you could consider are Skinfood , Essano and Natural Instinct.

(In case there are members new to BR and the forum that may be reading this and aren’t 100% sure how this works yet (I’ve seen lots of new names lately) - the links that I’ve popped in above for the brands will take you to the BR brand directory, where you can read other member reviews to help you decide on a brand / item before you buy).

Thanks ladies it means a lot to me xx Shaz last Saturday we were told he was going to pass away. Well today he has been moved out of ICU and has started moving around and opening his eyes! He should be fully awake tomorrow and we will know more if there has been any damage at all. Praying for the best outcome but OMG he has fought hard. The drs have been amazing and it really has taught me how precious our lives are xx

If you are really into skincare and like The Ordinary you should look in to NIOD. It is also from the Deciem company but is more "cutting edge" and are mixes rather than individual ingredients (and so is more expensive too).

Purple shampoo only really makes a difference if your blonde is yellow rather than orange. The ash colour should have helped counteract some of the brassiness but maybe still not as cool as you want. Your undertone from bleaching depends on the level of your hair, if it's still orange then it's probably not light enough (undertone goes red, orange, yellow and then white). I'm not sure what lightness you're after, but if it's not too light then an ash or other cool colour with a stronger developer could be used instead of bleach again.

On the personal annual anniversary is a great idea, Maree. 

I was was just curious as some members seem to put either their age or how long they’ve been a member for in the profile descriptions, which would need to be updated annually.

Hi all,
I'm in need of a new night cream or general face moisturizer. I normally use Khiels which I absolutely love but being one maternity the bank account doesnt support this option. Doe anybody know of any good cheaper options to help revive my tired skin and keep those pesky fine lines at bay.

   I really liked the Gold Dust since I'm a daily vitamin C serum user and realized I could get more bang for my buck getting a powder vitamin C and mixing it in with any water based serum I have on hand (providing it doesn't have Niacinamide in it or some other ingredient that doesn't mix well with vitamin C). I did really like the results using it. Found that not all the grains dissolve immediately though and that's why they recommend it to be used at night and I like using it during the day.

    I tried the vitamin C powder from Good Molecules and I found the powder disolves really well so I've switched to using that. I also get a big 20g pot for 8 USD. It doesn't have the COQ-10 the Gold Dust has though. Still a tiny sample pot lasted me for months.

    I'm crazy for GWP too. I often prefer a good GWP to a discount as I feel I get more dollar value for it than say getting the item I want 15 bucks cheaper. My fave gwp items are when I get to try something I've been wanting to try for awhile or when the gwp looks like an advent beauty calendar (see my photowall for the Cultbeauty gwp and the origins one) or it has alot of fullsized products.

Sorry about the confusing title really my bad. My grammar was off and I missed puting you in the title. It was supposed to read
