one step polish

nailsnails nails

Tried out this nail polish which doesn’t require a base, or a top coat. Just whip it on, with 60 minutes under the UV lamp, and they’re all dry. Lasts for 7 days without chipping. It’s fricken fab! I’m always looking for the simplest, most efficient way of doing something. Once I try out the other colours, I’ll upload them to this post.

I’m wearing ‘wish’. You can buy the kit online, with $9 shipping, here.

I was curious about this ‘shellac’ type ‘do it yourself’ product in Woolies, which came with a UV lamp + base gels etc. So, I thought I’d get it and I am really impressed with the results.

Every now and then I like to share with you the products I’ve been using regularly and which I love, out of the many products sent to me by different brands to try, I only like to share with you the best. My last beauty product round up  was 6 months ago (p.s. I STILL use that benefit foundation I told you about. It’s the best!) Since then, here are some products I’ve been using…

A combination of natural ingredients Mango, Shea and Coconut Butter, I found these lip butters, c/o Revlon, softening and fantastic for adding a touch of colour. Perfect for when I don’t want to wear bold makeup. Subtle, feminine and pretty. Retails for $21.95!

Comvita HUNI®XA Manuka Honey Skincare Range: Review


Ph by me.

I really enjoy learning about health and beauty – using good products and foods. I believe I have built up a good knowledge base and love sharing what I’ve learnt with you. Especially the fabulous brands I come across.

As you may or may not know, the current health and beauty trend revolves around Honey!

Jen, who sent me these lovely products, informed me that the natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties in honey make it the perfect ingredient in health care products.


I’ve been using this new Comvita HUNI®XA Manuka Honey Skincare Range, mostly the soap and eye cream, for the last 2 weeks – they smell divine and really moisturise my skin without any irritation. I love the feel of it on my skin, and it’s good to know I’m using a product which uses a rare honey found in New Zealand’s remote, pollution free forests, Manuka Honey.

My colleague also educated me about the brand – she buys a jar of the Comvita® UMF® 20+ Manuka Honey once a year and has one tablespoon of it per day, which is extra potent & extra healthy, and very good for you, especially in winter – I’d love to try this.

I asked another colleague, who hasn’t tried Comvita products before, who is in her 40’s to try the eye cream. She usually uses Lancome eye cream ($200) which she feels hasn’t been working for her in the past 2 years. After she applied the Comvita eye cream ($45) , she was so surprised at how moisturising it was. In fact, she’s going to buy it today! I have converted her, and feel really good about it!

Here are some of the benefits of Comvita HUNI®XA™ Manuka honey:

  • reduced inflammation
  • high anti-oxidant content
  • promotes regeneration of the skin cells for wound healing
  • anti-bacterial activity

Do you use any Comvita products? Or any products with honey?
