Jennifer Hawkins JBronze Medium Tanning Mousse Review

Hi Guys,

So today I will be reviewing JBronze which is a tanning product released by the fabulous Jennifer Hawkins. I have limited experience with tans. Reason being I naturally have olive skin (well lets just say I used to, however since I started working in an office in 2011 that bronzed natural glow has vanished). Anywho, I’m just not into tanning. I’ve never been for a professional spray tan only tanning myself for special occasions which would be a max five times in my life thus far. So I am definitely a newbie when it comes to tanning.

IMG_2685Why you ask? I HATTTTTE THE SMELL! It actually makes me feel physically ill.

**Insert amazing new discovery here**

So here is the product that changed my view of fake tan and probably the biggest selling point to people like me that hate the smell! This amazing product by Australia’s very own Miss Universe legit smells like yummy coconut goodness. ZOMG!


Being the newbie I am, I want something easy to apply which doesn’t require any fuss. JBronze foaming mouse is just that. Its soooo easy to use. You just dispense a pump onto your hand and smooth over your body, let it dry and voila.. tanned goddess!


Lets be real. We’ve all seen it.. an oompa loompa walking around – which brings me to my third fear with the whole tanning process – that orange tacky mess. Again another reason why I love this tanning mouse. You don’t get that, you get a beautiful brown tanned glow instead. And as the name of the product suggests, you will be nice and bronzed (JBronzed). And when you think about it who doesnt want beautiful skin like Jennifer!


This product has restored my faith in tanning products. All my common fears and misconceptions about tanning products were proved wrong with JBronze and I look forward to trying more from the range ASAP.

You can pick yours up for $34.99 at Priceline or Chemist Warehouse currently has it on sale for $27.69 here.

Until next time..



Olay Skincare Review

Hi Guys,

Olay is that trusted skin care brand. Your Mum probably used it, your Nana and Grandma have probably used it too. When it comes to putting products on your face, you want to be using products you can trust. For me, it’s almost like I would be surprised to try something from Olay I didn’t like. Which leaves my expectations for their range rather high but never fear, my expectations are always met and often exceeded. The three products I am reviewing today are the Olay Total Effects Daily Serum, Complete UV Max Defence Lotion Sensitive SPF 30 and Total Effects Moisturiser Normal SPF 15. So lets jump straight into the review..


Total Effects Daily Serum* – Having never used a serum before I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. This product is great at softening my skin leaving it smooth and hydrated. The packaging offers good control and while it’s not amazingly pretty (of which you don’t expect) its practical. I put this serum on just before bed so not sure how it layers with makeup but it does layer nicely under my night time moisturiser. It applies well on the skin and leaves a beautiful pleasant scent behind. If you are after a resonantly cheap serum – this is your go to. You can pick yours up for $34.99 here  or at your local Priceline.


Complete UV Max Defence Lotion Sensitive SPF 30* – This product is brilliant. Its high SPF 30 means you are protected from damaging UV rays. It may just be me but being brought up at the beach, I was always smothered in sunscreen and as a result love the smell so it on my skin. So the soft smell on sunscreen in this product reminds me of ‘the good ol days’. Its also the first high SPF moisturiser  I have found which doesn’t clog more pores so well done Olay. I recommend this for everyday use and what’s better is its cheap too at only $15. You can pick yours up for $14.99 here or at your local Priceline.


Total Effects Moisturiser Normal SPF 15* – I think I am only my third or fourth bottle of this stuff. It’s amazing. I love it – it makes my skin feel hydrated and tight. It also has a really nice smell so I love lathering it on in the morning. It works well with makeup too which is really what we all want to hear! It just works and I will probably continue to use this day cream for the rest of my life. You can pick yours up for $29.99 here or at your local Priceline.


So there is my review of a few Olay products out there at the moment. Have you tried any of these and if so, thoughts?

Until next time..
