| Current Rotation | Nail Polish |

I am one for bright nails, with reds and pinks topping my list. Don't tell me I'm alone when saying that I get an instant pick-me-up when I glimpse brightly painted nails. 


Maybe it's a beauty blogger thing. Here are a few current favourites from my nail rotation.

Sinful Colors Professional 'Feeling good'
O.P.I Nail Lacquer 'Rainbow Connection'
Australis Nail Colour 'Valentine'            

Sometimes I just find myself staring at O.P.I's 'Rainbow Connection'. The glitters are so mesmerising & beautiful! I was lucky to acquire this treasure in a beauty swap from fellow Adelaide beauty blogger Neena who blogs at Ramblings of a Girl (Thank you so much Neena!)


The ELES Base Enamel has been my 'knight in shining armour' of late! It creates a smooth base for freshly painted nails, helping keep nails immaculate, and increasing the lasting power of my polish to up to 5 days! (this is a record for me). I also use the ELES Base Enamel when I feel my nails are in need of some extra TLC. I paint my nails 1-2 times a week so I like knowing my nails are getting that extra base enamel protection they need to keep healthy and strong!

The ELES Base Enamel Nail Polish was included in the kindly gifted 2012 Adelaide Beauty Conference 'goodie bag'. 
A lovely, high-quality product!

What's in your current rotation?

Warming winter wishes,

| REVIEW | Botanical Creations Waterless Hand Cleanser in Wild Mixedberries & Sweetie Marshmallows |

Review time again! Today, it is Waterless Hand Cleansers from Botanical Creations! 

If you are like me, waterless hand cleaners are a product I will use all year round. Although, I think their time to shine is in winter. Waterless hand cleansers are the perfect weapon for protecting yourself against nasty germs in the winter cold & flu months.

Waterless Hand Cleansers

'Wild Mixedberries & Sweetie Marshmallows'

Wandering aimlessly through Priceline one day dreaming of an endless beauty budget, I stumbled upon these little darlings. I didn't set out to purchase any hand sanitiser products when I ventured into Priceline, but alas, the scents were just too heavenly!

Two more products I bought for no reason, more so because they were cheap and looked super cute! But WOW! I am happy I picked these up. Since making this purchase I have returned and procured the Lemon scent too for a fresh and less sweetened scent.

SCENTS AVAILABLE:    Wild Mixedberries | Sweetie Marshmallows | Fresh Peach
                                                Lemon | Pink Grapefruit | Vanilla Fresh Sugar   

If you are from America, then you are lucky to have the Bath & Body Works line of scented hand sanitisers. Unfortunately, we do not have this brand in Australia and Botanical Creations Waterless Hand Cleansers are  the closest in similarity that I have found.

Botanical Creations Waterless Hand Cleanser is perfect to use before applying you're own makeup, it is small so you can tuck it into your handbag for daily use, and it is long lasting. In the past couple of weeks, I have used it 30 or more times throughout my day. A very handy product indeed!




Sturdy and functional packaging. See through packaging allows you to see how much product you have left. A secure "click" lid closure guarantees no leaking of the product. 


AUD $ 3.45

  • Cheap!
  • Non-drying on the skin
  • No sticky residue 
  • Deliciously scented. I get lots of compliments!
  • Cute packaging
  • Lots of product 
  • Size. Compact enough to carry in your handbag for daily use
  • solid "click" closure (no worries of leakage in your favourite handbag)

  • Availability. I have only found this brand of Waterless Hand Cleaners in Australian Priceline stores
  • Limited scent varieties. I would love some seasonal scents!
  • When using the product, you don't always get an even dispersion of the blue beads


That's really it! Overall, it is a FUN product to use! It leaves my hands feeling fresh, cleansed, and it is non drying on delicate skin. The scents are very uplifting to use as a functional pick-me-up throughout your day. 

                                                                Rating:  / 5
