The October Edit

The October Edit


Good lordy it's been a hot minute since my last favourites round up! 


I could list a thousand excuses as to why the blog has been a little quite over the last few months but the fact of the matter is that my priorities have had to have been elsewhere, I scored a big promotion at work and I've been working my but off, most days the last thing I want to do after coming home is stare at another computer screen. It sucks but I'm working on regaining the passion, forgive me.

I'm a sucker for a mini mascara, this love for the itty bitty tubes stems from my strict two month mascara rule and the fact that I can trial a high end mascara often for the price of a budget mascara. Over the last two months I've been enjoying the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara, is it just me or do Benefit kill it with their mascaras each and every damn time? This new-ish mascara release from Benefit is the perfect mix of lush black pigment, flexible hold, doll eye curl, length for days and light non clumpy volume.

A few months ago I upgraded my phone to the Samsung S7 (freaking fabulous by the way) and I have been loving mixing up my phone covers, right now I am hooked on the Casetify So Quiet Transparente phone case, something about the mint green sea foam pattern makes my inner beach bum feel a little bit better about being stuck behind a desk all day.

It has been quite a few months now since I reviewed both the Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer & Shine Lipsticks* and the Rimmel Kate Scultping Palette in Coral Glow* but I can honestly say most days I reach for both. My go to lipstick shade at the moment is Better & Brighter which is a beautiful sheer brown rose nude and there hasn't been a day for the last two and a bit months that I haven't used this contour palette, it's beautiful and definitely travelling with my overseas in December.

My favourite powder this year has been the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder, it's perfection in a compact, particularly for disguising my enlarged pores over my cheeks and for smoothing my under eye area. I've hit major pan and a repurchase is on the cards very soon.

Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Review

Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Review

I have been trialling a new beauty device over the last month or so that I am incredibly excited to share my thoughts on. It's been quite some time that a beauty product has had me this impressed!


When it comes to my skin, if an ingredient or procedure has proven scientific backing, I want to try it. That is why I jumped at the chance (I would have run, swam, commando crawled if need be) to try the Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Red LED device*. Red light therapy has intrigued me for years, problem is that it's either been a bit too out of my budget or I have lived in an area where such a service was not available to me. An at home Red LED device is not only less expensive in the long term, it's a far more convenient option. 

Curious at to how red light therapy works? In layman's terms specially designed devices emit wavelengths of red light into the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Sounds scary however the wavelengths are harmless to the skin, and instead work to produce collagen and boost barrier function, reducing the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles.

Truth is that there are a number of Red LED devices on the market but few that perform to the standard of the Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Red LED device*, it's a super powerful little gadget that uses infrared, amber-red, amber and super-red wavelengths of light that have each worked their magic on my skin. While I may only be just over halfway through my initial eight week treatment, I've already seen fantastic results. My forehead is smoother, the lines around my eyes are less obvious and my smile lines are noticeably more plump. Most impressively and most surprisingly any inflammation or occasional bad bout of acne has responded incredibly well to red light therapy too, swelling lasts half as long and pigmentation is reduced, all in all my skin has been looking better than it has in months. I credit that to an exellent skincare routine filled with well formulated products and the introduction of the Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Red LED device*.

While I am planning an entire post to go live in just a few weeks sharing just how I use this device and my results in detail, it's really not all that complicated. It's a matter of plugging the device in (Aussie's you will need a plug adaptor), popping the all so attractive goggles on to protect your eyes, turning the device on, and moving the device across the skin for three minutes per area. It's as simple as leaving the device on the area until the devices switches off itself, there is zero room for error. Once finished, I simply pack the Pure Rayz back into it cute little velvet pouch for next time.

The Baby Quasar Pure Rayz Red LED device* is easy to use, ultra convenient and is giving me bloody impressive results, hands down my favourite beauty product of 2016, huge thumbs up for me!
