Liquid Skin Care Body Wash

Liquid Skin Care Body Wash

Liquid Skin Care Body Wash

Finally, it’s here!


The inimitable Liquid Skin Care (Lqd®) brand has gained a glowing international reputation for its simplicity and effectiveness, and the introduction of BODY WASH follows the company philosophy – scientifically advanced, non-irritant products that are designed to deliver. The latest addition to the Lqd collection is Body Wash, a luxurious pH balanced hand and body wash developed to awaken
and rejuvenate the skin.

“Our customers have been asking for a high quality body wash for a long time”, says Lqd co-founder, organic chemist and perfectionist, Anthony McDonough.

“It’s been three years in the making as we were determined to develop the best product possible”.

Designed specifically for sensitive, reactive skin.
Body-washes usually contain ingredients such as sulphates and parabens that exacerbate conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis and eczema. And don’t be fooled by the word organic. “In fact the most commonly used ‘organically’ certified foaming agent is Cocamidopropyl betaine and this is a known skin irritant,” explains McDonough. Perfumes and essential oils are also common irritants, so the task at hand was to create a fragrant, foaming wash, that was also gentle and nourishing.

Made with the most nourishing, soothing ingredients.
“That’s when we discovered the benefits of coffee seed oil” says McDonough. COASETM (Coffea Arabica Seed Extract) is gathered from the green coffee bean plant using super-critical CO2 extraction. “With the added benefit that it smells like a freshly brewed café latte!” COASETM acts as a super antioxidant, stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, and improves moisture retention. Added to that are lashings of rich, soothing ingredients, such as aloe vera, jojoba, rosehip and avocado oils, to ensure skin is left cleansed, refreshed and glowing.

A new bathroom staple, designed to be used by all.
The fresh coffee scent and chic packaging means Lqd Body Wash is right at home in any bathroom, home or workplace. “We have designed this product to be used by both men and women,” says McDonough. “Everyone deserves to have a nonirritating body wash alternative.”


To create a superior product, it’s important to know what to leave out.

Three years of stringent testing in the U.S means that Lqd Body Wash is one of the purest products on the market for sensitive skin.

Benefits come from the elimination of all known irritants:
No Cocamidopropyl betaine
No Sulfates
No Parabens
No Phthalates
No Colours
No Animal Testing

The body wash you’ve been waiting for.

Lqd Body Wash $45

HOLA Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range and HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Range

HOLA Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range and HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Range

HOLA Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range and HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Range

Searching from the stark and dry Australian outback to the warm salty waters of the Australian coastline, the skincare experts at HOLA were driven by a belief that only the most simplest of natural ingredients will provide the most effective and healthy skincare regime. After years of research and with a passion to provide products of difference, HOLA has now launched in Australia with their groundbreaking HOLA Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range and HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Range.


HOLA utilises Australian grown honey extract and seaweed extract to develop a Moisturising and Anti-Wrinkle Range like no other. With inventions like the Anti-Wrinkle Glazing Masque and Seaweed Moisture Cleansing Gel, HOLA provides a unique array of gorgeous skincare products that are natural, simple and effective.


The HOLA Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range is enriched with Australian grown honey extract to ensure a smooth, lifting and glowing complexion. The groundbreaking range includes a Honey Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser, Day & Night Cream, Eye Cream, Glazing Masque, Lotion, Toner and Essence.


The HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Range is developed using seaweed extract to hydrate, freshen and moisturise skin. The refreshing range includes a Seaweed Moisture Make-Up Remover, Cleansing Gel, Exfoliating Gel, Toner, Eye Gel, Eye Cream, Lotion, Repair Cream, Mask and Essence.

 

Review: The Hola Honey Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser smells incredible almost as if I could eat it (or add it to my banana smoothie)! I’m very environmentally conscious and really appreciate these natural quality products - especially a thick and thorough cleanser, like this one. The Hola Honey Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser is a super soft cleanser which thankfully wasn’t harsh or irritating on my skin.

The HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Eye Cream has a different consistency to typical eye cream I’ve used in the past; it’s almost gel-like but works incredibly well. A combination of being unwell and having the heater on permanently meant I had extremely dry, itchy skin and serious dark bags under my eyes; key word HAD! The HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Eye Cream is unbelievable – it worked SO fast to soften my skin. I actually broke the rules and used the HOLA Seaweed Moisturising Eye Cream on my upper cheeks as they were excessively dry and needed a serious pep-up and of course, the product delivered!

I felt brighter and much, much smoother after using these products for just a couple of days; they’ve earnt a lasting spot on my skincare regime especially when my skin needs the extra hydration during a Melbourne winter.
-Brooke Hunter

 

The Australians live in harmony with nature and are environmentally conscious.  Century old tradition is still being upheld and passed down from generation to generation.  Secret recipes and potions with deep tradition become scarcer.  Deep-ingrained morals, good enterprise and self-discipline pave the way to guarantee great quality products.


HOLA upholds the philosophy “The most simple and effective ingredients, brings you the most natural and healthy skin care”. Today, HOLA is created with the concept of using time-proven traditional recipe for naturally healthy looking skin.

A high performance moisturising eye cream, enriched with Seaweed Extract, to effectively hydrate, improve skin firmness around the eye and reduce dark circles. It helps to reduce wrinkles and brighten the delicate eye area. Your skin will appear hydrated, smooth and radiant.


Both the Honey Anti-Wrinkle Range and Seaweed Moisturising Range are available nationally via www.glamourflage.com.au or in-store at the new Glamourflage shop located at Melbourne Central in Victoria.

Veet's Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler

Veet's Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler

Veet’s Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler

 

Sensitive body parts, such as the face and bikini line, need a delicate touch when it comes to hair removal. Australia’s leading depilatories expert, Veet, is proud to unveil the new Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler, an innovative beauty tool for use on sensitive and delicate body areas such as the face, bikini line and underarms. 

 

There has recently been an increase in women wanting to remove hair from sensitive body areas. In particular, women are increasingly removing hair from their face, underarms and bikini; all areas where using a traditional razor can be problematic due to risk of cuts and lack of precision.

 

In response to this growing trend, the new Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler with precision cutting head allows you to achieve the look you always wished for. It quickly and gently cuts and shapes your hair in sensitive and delicate areas where accuracy is wanted. And the clever design of the cutting blades mean they don’t touch the skin, so there is no fear of cuts.

 

The styler comes with interchangeable heads, including a two-headed trimmer with 16mm and 6mm blades for optimum eyebrow shaping, and a 20mm trimmer attachment for underarms and bikini line. There are also an additional 2 guide combs of 2mm and 4mm to allow the user to easily trim hair uniformly to the same length.

 

The sleek styler has a water rinsable head, and it’s so compact it can easily be popped in it’s own cosmetic bag and carried in a handbag or overnight bag for on-the-go touch ups. 

 

Olivia Grey from Veet Australia says: “Women remove hair from a variety of different body areas, and we know that they use a wide range of methods. By introducing the Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler, we aim to allow women to trim and style their body hair with ease and precision at home, with just one tool.”

 

Jocelyn Petroni, one of Australia’s leading beauty experts, recognises the benefits of such a tool when it comes to brows: “My brow philosophy is that brows should look effortlessly beautiful. I like naturally defined lines that are subtly shaped to the contours of the face. I like how the Veet Precision Beauty Styler trims individual brow hairs with its fine clipper and allows precise shaping that keeps brows full and natural.”


The Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler is available from the 4th October from leading supermarkets, pharmacies and independent retailers. $49.99 RRP.

ENVY U Skincare

ENVY U Skincare

ENVY U Skincare

The easiest and most natural way to remove your old tan!

 

New Vanish ENVY is the world first '2 in 1' organic tan removal soap and scrub. We've designed an organic exfoliating top layer with the hydrating properties of a moisturiser at the base, to create one life changing product.

 

With its ergonomic half-moon shape, it easily fits in the palm of your hand and makes it perfect for getting to those hard-to-reach areas! Vanish ENVY has been hailed as the leader in tan removers, by clients worldwide. No more mixing, mess, or waste! There is also no need to wear gloves. Simply use it in the shower and your old tan will be history.

 

'We use self-tanners to boost confidence and look great all year round. What I needed was a quick and easy way to completely remove my old tan which is how I came up with Vanish ENVY" said Lenora Anderson, CEO of Envy U Skincare.

 

What goes on eventually comes off! The tan starts to fade and we all need to exfoliate to prepare for reapplication. In areas such as behind your knees, elbows, feet and back tend to hold tan longer, creating an uneven or often patchy look.

 

Vanish ENVY is all it takes to get your skin completely clean, clear and moisturised.

 

Start by using the smooth side of the bar to lift the tan and open your pores. Follow by turning the soap around and use the -exfoliating side' to remove your old tan. This process will also clear your pores for a deep hydrating cleanse.

 

Made from 100% natural and organic ingredients including Jicama extract, new Vanish ENVY will be your skins new best friend! You'll be ready for your next tanning application immediately after.

 

Vanish Envy is only $24.95 and can be purchased exclusively from www.envyuskincare.com.

Dream Dots

Dream Dots

Dream Dots

Dreams do come true as women and men, both young and old can now bid farewell to those pesky spots with the revolutionary Dream Dots. Following its recent success in the UK beauty market and among celebrities such as former Miss World Rosanna Davison and renowned beauty vloggers Suzanne Jackson and Melanie Murphy, these gems are set to be the latest skin care essential.

Launching in Australia this year, the innovative medical device acts as an absorbent overnight patch treatment, designed to calm and treat unwanted breakouts. It is 100% waterproof, breathable, bio-compatible and suitable for all skin types.

When Dream Dots come in contact with the blemish, it absorbs the spot fluid. A moist healing environment is formed beneath the patch, maintaining ideal pH balance, temperature and hydration levels while sealing in repair factors, leading to the skin healing 50% quicker. The patch swells and turns white overnight, resulting in a visible reduction in redness and inflammation when removed in the morning. All it takes is one hassle-free application. Simply cleanse the affected area, secure the patch in place and enjoy the results.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approved product has been modelled on devices used in hospitals for severe burns and wounds, so it doesn’t dry out or scar the blemish or the skin around it. Dream Dots is drug free, paraben free, latex free and has no harsh ingredients. It can be used as an add-on with any skincare routine or even worn underneath make up.

“We are so excited to be launching Dream Dots in Australia!” says Pam Wilson, Marketing Director of Pacific SMM, the Australian distributors of Dream Dots. “With its simple application, this skin care product is the perfect solution for those with a busy schedule and who are prone to break outs. Given its international success, we know that Dream Dots will be well received in Australia too,” says Pam.

Dream Dots is available at national pharmacy retail outlets. For stockist information, contact (02) 9959 1014.
RRP $19.99 per box of 24 patches.

Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle

Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle

Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle

This Valentine’s Day Schick has made feeling smooth and sexy easy with its Hydro Silk TrimStyle that allows you to shape your v-zone anyway you want – even if it means giving yourself a special love heart to mark the romantic occasion.


Recent OmniPoll research conducted in Australia by Schick Women found that over half of women aged 18-44 years do not feel sexy. So this Valentine’s Day they want to remind women to embrace, love and express themselves.


“Everyone wants to feel sexy on Valentine’s Day and the Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle allows you to do just that. Trim, shave, and transform with the flip of a handle. Whether you dare to go bare or just want to trim the edges, you can get your bikini line into shape with Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle”, said Andrea Galea, Brand Manager, Schick Women’s, Edgewell Personal Care.


With a high-performance hydrating* razor on one end, and a waterproof bikini trimmer on the other, Schick Hydro Silk Trimstyle helps you shape it your way.


Tips on how to shape your v-zone this Valentine’s Day:
1. Decide your style
2. If it's your first time, or a while since you've trimmed, you might need to cut back. So trim the length of your hair using the longest trimming setting, with the cap on. It doesn't matter if it's not even.
3. Soften your hair by having a bath or jumping in the shower and apply a good shaving gel to the area you want to shave.
4. Adjust the 4 length trimmer setting to the required level. Then start trimming horizontally from the outside in. Use the razor head to get an ultra-smooth finish and always remember to shave in the direction of the hair growth.
5. Rinse, dry and apply a non-alcohol based moisturiser to the bikini area.

Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle features:
Razor with water-activated moisturizing serum that hydrates longer* than any other razor leaving skin silky smooth.

Olive Natural Skincare

Olive natural skincare officially launches in Australia, with its roots planted on a proud family owned olive estate in the lush Bombay Hills of New Zealand.

The natural active and botanical ingredients harness centuries of Mediterranean history combined with modern science to help Australians and New Zealanders alike receive the best in beauty treatment and skincare remedies.

It is the first comprehensive natural skincare range from New Zealand available in Australia that recognises the potential of olive oil in curing common skin problems. The range features products for the face, hair and body, which are all gentle to the user and the environment.

The signature ingredients, extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf extract are both produced on the Simunovich Estate and are naturally loaded with powerful antioxidants and vitamins, delivering moisture and firmness while protecting against the harmful effects of external elements such as sun and water. It is high in anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, while aesthetically improving the elasticity of the skin.

We guarantee ingredients of the highest quality used in our skincare. Our olive oil production is controlled and monitored by our professional team, from the planting and growing through to the harvesting.”

Olive is capturing the highest quality olive oil and natural ingredients with its hero products:

Balms Go Where Moisturisers Fear To Tread In Winter

Balms Go Where Moisturisers Fear To Tread In Winter

Balms Go Where Moisturisers Fear To Tread In Winter

It’s that time of year again, the nights are chilly and the days are short. Cold wind and rain outside and air conditioning inside can play havoc with skin, causing dryness, chaffing and redness in the winter months.

“Cold weather means there is less moisture in the air outside which can cause the skin to dehydrate. Moving from air conditioning inside to cold weather outside can affect the natural moisture levels in the skin which can become dry and chapped,” says Mr Michael Wu, general manager, Nature’s Care Australia.

Mr Wu says that balms, as opposed to moisturisers can often be more effective in maintaining the natural moisture in the skin, helping to prevent dryness and sooth redness in colder weather.

“Moisturisers often tend to contain more humectants which draw water from the lower levels of the skin to rehydrate the upper levels of the skin. Balms on the other hand, tend to contain a higher level of occlusives which help seal in the natural moisture in the skin, acting as a barrier against external conditions,” he said.

In an all-natural base of beeswax, sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E, Nature’s Care Paw Paw Balm (30g, price $5.99), delivers superb hydration and helps to protect skin from the drying effects of the elements.

“Paw paw is a wonderful skin healer. It is packed with the classic ‘skin vitamins’ A, E and C and when combined in a rich premium base, it makes a wonderfully soothing balm to keep skin looking and feeling great during the colder months,” said Mr Wu.

Use Nature’s Care Paw Paw balm all over after the bath or shower and on exposed skin when out and about to keep skin soft and hydrated from top to toe.

Mr Wu said that lips are often the first to see the affects of winter de-hydration.

“The skin on our lips is much thinner than on the rest of our face and body and they do not contain sweat glands so they are more vulnerable to the drying effects of cold wind and air conditioning,”’

Winter Skin

Mr Michael Wu, general manager of leading Australian natural products company, Nature’s Care shares some of their most frequent customer questions – and provides the answers – on how to keep skin looking and feeling great during winter – the natural way.

Why does skin dry out in winter?
Cold wind and air conditioning mean there is less moisture in the atmosphere than in the warmer months which can cause the skin to look and feel dry.

Why does my regular moisturiser appear not to work?
Depending on what type of moisturiser you have, you may need to choose a richer type of moisturiser or switch to a balm. Moisturisers often tend to contain more humectants which draw water from the lower levels of the skin to rehydrate the upper levels of the skin. Balms tend to contain a higher level of occlusives which help seal in the natural moisture in the skin, acting as a barrier against external conditions.

Why do my lips always get dry first when the weather gets colder?
Our skin has three layers, the epidermis, the dermis and a subcutaneous fat layer. The straum corneum tops the epidermis as a protective layer (against bacteria, moisture loss, heat and light).

On our lips, the protective layer is four to five times thinner compared to the skin on our face which means they are more vulnerable to becoming dry, sore and chapped when exposed to harsh weather and air conditioning.

What can I do to prevent my lips getting so dry and sore?
Protect your lips from the elements with a hydrating lip balm – preferably containing natural ingredients, with no harsh chemicals. Use it freely and re-apply often. Look for rich soothing ingredients such as beeswax, Vitamin E and sunflower seed.

Why is Paw Paw so good for skin?
Paw Paw (papaya) has been used for years since ancient times as a natural skin healer. It is rich in antioxidants and classic ‘skin vitamins’ such as Vitamin E and C.

Paw Paw is rich in Omega 9, an essential fatty acid that is actually made by our skin glands. In cold weather, as moisture is lost from the skin, using skin care that contains Omega 9, such as Nature’s Care Paw Paw Balm, can help skin stay hydrated.

This winter, Nature’s Care Paw Paw Lip Balm (30g, $3.99), can come to the rescue and revive dry, sore lips. The all-natural rich base provides nourishment and protection. It has a fresh fruity natural paw paw flavour and glides smoothly onto lips with the built-in applicator. Lips will look glossy and feel smooth and soft.

Nature’s Care Lip Balm, 10g Price $3.99 and Nature’s Care Balm, 30g Price $5.99. Available from Woolworths and Priceline stores.

Nature’s Care is an Australian company that develops, manufactures and distributes a range of nutritional and natural skin care products throughout Australia from their headquarters in Sydney. www.pawpawaustralia.com.au and www.naturescare.com.au for more information.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Clear Face SPF30 and Face SPF50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Clear Face SPF30 and Face SPF50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Clear Face SPF30 and Face SPF50+


NEUTROGENA® the experts in sunscreen introduce ULTRA SHEER® Clear Face SPF30 and ULTRA SHEER® Face SPF50+. The new liquid-lotion sunscreens have a water-light texture that feels weightless, leaving skin looking clean and non-greasy. They offer high protection to decrease the risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging caused by the sun.

Dermatologists recommend high SPF to be used every day to maintain visibly healthy skin and to protect against sunburn and the aging effects of the sun. However, some women choose not to wear sunscreen daily due to the formulas feeling thick and greasy on the skin. What many Australian women don’t realise is that even short periods of sun exposure, like walking to the car or sitting by a window are occasions of incidental sun exposure. Daily sunscreen usage has been shown to cut melanoma risk in half.


Alarmingly, women who suffer from breakouts tend to avoid sunscreen. Research has shown that 74% of women aged 10-54 suffer from breakouts, with only 30% ii of women choosing to wear daily facial sunscreen protection,
fearing that sunscreen will clog pores and cause further breakouts.


NEUTROGENA® has developed water-light ULTRA SHEER® Clear Face SPF30 designed for break-out prone skin and ULTRA SHEER® Face SPF50+, for the highest sunscreen protection & daily protection that glides on with ease.


The new liquid lotions are powered by photostable HELIOPLEX® technology which offers broad spectrum SPF protection. HELIOPLEX® technology effectively absorbs the hazardous UVA and UVB rays, resulting in photo stable durable protection - meaning it won't break down or lose its ability to protect the skin, even whenexposed to sunlight. These ultra-light high SPF sunscreens leave skin feeling clean and non-greasy, and thanks to HELIOPLEX® decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Both formulas leave a
weightless finish so skin can breathe.


NEUTROGENA® ULTRA SHEER® Clear Face Sunscreen SPF30:
The new liquid lotion provides balanced, broad-spectrum protection thanks to stabilised HELIOPLEX® technology. Formulated for daily use with an oil free formula, clinically proven to be suitable for breakout prone skin, the water-light liquid lotion has a weightless feel so skin can breathe. Non-comedogenic and oil free.

 

Designed for: those concerned about sunscreen causing breakouts. New Clear Face SPF30 offers high SPF  protection and won’t clog pores, now there’s no excuse not to wear SPF every day. The weightless lotion glides on effortlessly and absorbs instantly for a non-shiny finish, perfect to wear everyday, even under makeup.
