Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray Review

So this is part of Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Sunscreen line that was launched this year I believe.
I like that it is easy application, but there is a SLIGHT sticky feeling post-application. NOT uncomfortable, but it is something I notice.
I recommend this for people who are lazy to apply sunscreen ahaha!
The one I have pictured is the SPF15 version. There is a SPF30 version as well that I have tried, but it expired and I never finished it! :( I got his in a goody bag from Priceline where you purchase a lot of stuff and you get this for like $30 or something!
NO allergic reaction to this suncreen, which is great! :)
EASY - AS application.
BUT, I must say, I am afraid of the sunscreen getting everywhere, so maybe not best to apply on carpet!
Have you tried this?
What are your thoughts?

NOTD: Cute Yummy-Looking Stripes? Yes Please!!

Hey everyone!

This was on my nails last week! LOVES IT! I got sooo many compliments on it! :D
I used OPI's Sparrow Me the Drama, OPI Mermaid's Tears, and China Glaze's Snow.
Took a while but totally worth it! LOVE!! It's my first manicure with this type of nail design - I have usually only been into doing one colour over the whole nail, but after this, i look forward to being more creative in the future!!
NOTD ATM: Chanel's Rouge Fatal
Pics & Swatches + Reviewed previously here: http://fortheloveofbeautybylara.blogspot.com/2011/06/chanel-487-rouge-fatal-swatches-review.html
I think it looks better with 3 coats (which is what I have on now!)
What do you think of the stripey NOTD?

Hi guys!

How is September treating you?

Current NOTD comes from OPI's latest collection - Touring America!

My fave of the collection!

Applies smoothly & opaque in 2 coats! Looks black on the nails though!! Which is kind of a bummer, but you can expect that I guess.
The name indicates it may be blue, it looks purple in the bottle && on the nail looks black lol!
If you look really closely, there is the TINIEST HINT OF BLUEY-PURPLE!

I still like it though!

It wears pretty well for a dark-coloured nail polish - lasted me for about 3 days before showing minor tip wear, on the fourth day, you could still get away with it! I'm tempted to take it off & reapply! But I have SOOOO many other nail polishes to try in my stash!!

What do you think of OPI RHB?

What the Samsung wave can do!!

Lol!! How awesome is that? If you saw my other post I posted the other day, Samsung has this "edit" feature on photos!!

Very cool indeed!

I know the iPhone has a bunch of apps that rival Photoshop so I guess this is nothing... But still!! I can do a few other things too! Like make it black and white, and add text!!

Ahhh the little things in life! =D

Does your mobile phone do this?

Crabtree & Evelyn Citron honey & coriandar hand therapy - hand cream review

Crabtree & Evelyn Citron honey & coriandar hand therapy

Where can you get it from?David Jones

What size did I try?25g

Smell?Refreshingly, unisex, citricy, pleasant & with no hints of floral fragrancing!

Do I recommend it?I am not sure how much this runs for, but I do like it overall as a good nourishing handcream. The price would be on the higher side I believe, so I'd recommend it as a splurge or as an occasional use hand cream. For everyday long term use, unless you had the money to spend, there are cheaper alternatives.

- 1 for the anticipated pricing, but it is really a nice, moisturising hand cream with a pleasant unisex scent that is a joy to use. The scent may be a bit TOO heavy for some, and too heavy for regular use, so this is also considered in the rating!

What hand cream are you using at the moment? Do you like it?

My fave deodorant!!

Hi everyone!!

I know I have not been posting as regularly as I used to! I am so sorry! I have been truly busy with uni... && then I had technical difficulties lol!!

I will be blogging much more frequently now that I can do it from my phone!! =) Awesomeness!! =)

Anyways, as the weather is getting warmer here in Australia it means we will sweat! My fave deodorant is....

The Nivea extra whitening 24hr extra care a-p!

I use it all year round! Because yes, people can sweat in winter too!!


It losing .5 a mark because it transfers to clothing, esp. Black clothing! Not a good look!!!!

Why do I like it?
I like that the smell is not strong, the application is easy && not wet, one of these lasts forever!! && I am not allergic to it!

Where did I purchase it from?

Do I recommend to others?
Yes! I am not sure about the whitening effects, but in general it is a good deodorant!

What deodorant is your fave at the moment?
