New Product: L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrubs Review

Do you have dry skin?

Do you have dull skin?

Do you have blackhead troubles?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of the above you should try the brand new L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrubs.

Every day dirt, makeup and oil builds up on our face which can lead to dull or problematic skin.

Often cleansing alone is not enough. This is where using a face scrub comes in to play.

You've probably heard of multi-masking, now you can multi-scrub as well thanks to L'Oreal Paris' new collection of three Sugar Scrubs.

Each of these Sugar Scrubs contain 100% natural exfoliants for an instant skin transformation.

They combine three naturally sourced sugars (brown, blonde and white) to provide deep yet gentle exfoliation.

L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrubs Range

These Sugar Scrubs have a light gel-like consistency that gradually melts away to avoid harsh scrubbing.

They are extremely easy to use merely by scooping some scrub out of the jar with your fingers, applying it to dry skin, massaging it around in circular motions and then rinsing it off. 

They result in lovely bright, smooth, soft skin! Exactly what I'm looking for from products such as these!

I tend to use them at the start of my shower, once every two or three days.

These Sugar Scrubs come in a stylish square glass jar with a screw cap lid.

Although I love the luxe feel and classiness of the glass jar, as opposed to a plastic one, I am a bit concerned that I will drop one in the shower, but all good so far, I haven't dropped them once!

There are three variants of these Sugar Scrubs each targeting specific skin concerns: a Purifying Scrub, a Glow Scrub and a Nourishing Scrub.

L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrubs Purifying Scrub (with Kiwi Seeds)

L'Oreal Sugar Scrub Purifying Scrub 

This sugar scrub is designed to purify your skin and clear blackheads.

In my opinion this is the most divinely scented of the three scrubs with a delicious kiwi fruit scent. I absolutely love this fruity scent!

I concentrate my use of this Purifying Scrub on my nose which is where my blackheads are located and then use either the Glow Scrub or Nourishing Scrub on the rest of my face where I prefer those benefits.

This scrub contains kiwi seeds to exfoliate the skin and visibly reduce blackheads.

The purifying formula also contains peppermint essential oil which soothes the skin and reduces blemishes, as well as lemongrass essential oil to purify the skin further.

After using this scrub for a couple of weeks my skin looks revived with a clearer complexion and feels baby soft.

L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrubs Nourishing Scrub (with Cocoa Butter)

L'Oreal Sugar Scrub Nourishing Scrub

This Nourishing sugar scrub is designed to soften skin and soothe dryness.

It has a lovely cocoa scent which had me craving chocolate.

It contains cocoa butter rich in fatty acids to soothe dryness making it perfect for my maturing dry skin. 

The nourishing formula also contains coconut oil to protect the skin's barrier and exfoliating cocoa grains to remove dead skin cells and soften skin.

This buttery scrub left my skin feeling so nourished, supple and soft after use!

L'Oreal Paris Sugar Scrub Glow Scrub (with Grapeseed Oil)

L'Oreal Sugar Scrub Glow Scrub

The Glow Sugar Scrub is formulated to brighten skin and boost radiance.

It contains grapeseed oil enriched with Vitamin E to illuminate dull, tired skin.

The radiance boosting formula exfoliates and cares for the skin, with Monoi oil to moisturise and protect skin from dullness.

It also contains acai powder to refine skin's texture for a visibly smoother finish.

After use my skin looked radiant and felt baby-soft!

Not only are these three Sugar Scrubs perfect for your face, they are also brilliant for your lips. 

The benefits are smoother lips and a refined lip line which both in turn improves the wear of lipstick!

All three of these scrubs are stocked in Priceline Pharmacies. Click on the pink links above to find out more.

Please note I was lucky enough to receive one of these Sugar Scrubs in my L'Oreal Australia Beauty For All Goodie Bag and the other two at the Priceline Pharmacy Beauty Prescription Event. These Sugar Scrubs were the products most requested by you for me to review first.

Which of these Sugar Scrubs, the Purifying Scrub, Nourishing Scrub or Glow Scrub appeals to you the most?

50 Uses For Nutrimetics Nutri-Rich Oil!

Nutrimetics are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year!

Over these 50 years their values and philosophies have always remained the same.

"Pure, potent naturally enriched ingredients, the best home grown beauty, cruelty free and real visible results, guaranteed."

Nutrimetics 50th Anniversary Cake

The very first product in the Nutrimetics range was Nutri-Rich Oil, and it was a runaway success! 

The core ingredient of Nutri-Rich Oil is Apricot Kernel Oil.

The early founders of Nutrimetics discovered this amazing ingredient high up in the Himalayas among the Hunza tribes people. 

In spite of the extreme weather conditions the Hunza people enjoyed remarkably youthful complexions. 

The secret to their smooth and youthful skin was Apricot Kernel Oil which they applied daily for protection against the harsh environment and sun damage.

From this discovery Nutri-Rich Oil was developed.

The Original Nutrimetics Nutri-Rich Oil & Packaging

Today Nutri-Rich Oil's unique scent and smooth texture remains largely unchanged. Why change a winning product! It remains Nutrimetics' most successful skincare product of all time.

Nutri-Rich Oil is the 'Crown Jewel' of the Nutrimetics range. It is their most treasured and timeless beauty icon. Click HERE to see the current prices and product sizes of Nutri-Rich Oil.

It is a highly concentrated blend of specially selected Apricot Kernel Oil and Vitamin E which intensively nurtures and protects the skin for a soft, smooth and supple feel.  

Although the directions on the Nutri-Rich Oil box merely state: 

"Apply at night after cleansing and toning" 

I have come up with 50 uses for this iconic multi-tasking product in honour of Nutrimetics 50th Anniversary!

If you are a fan of Nutrimetics Nutri-Oil SAVE this post to your Pinterest account for future reference of these 50 different uses.

USPA Deep Cleansing Mud Mask Mistletoe & Fennel Extracts

I love using face masks not only to benefit and treat my skin but also for the relaxation me-time they provide.

They truly do restore and rejuvenate not only my skin but also my mind, especially this Uspa Deep Cleansing Mud Mask.

Uspa is an Australian skincare brand with more than 20 years experience in the spa and skincare industry.

It's harmonious blends nurture the skin and the spirit, and are formulated to promote health, vitality and radiance.

USPA Deep Cleansing Mud Mask
Mistletoe & Fennel Extracts

The Uspa Deep Cleansing Mud Mask with Mistletoe and Fennel Extracts is, as the name suggests, a deep cleansing mud mask designed to remove excess oils and impurities from congested skin types.

It is the complex herbal system of Mistletoe and Fennel Extracts that draws out the impurities and clean the pores to leave the skin fresh, radiant and supple.

The Bentonite Clay absorbs toxins and releases beneficial minerals into the skin.

In addition to the above detoxification process this mud mask also contains Chamomile and Yarrow to provide a soothing effect on the skin, contributing to a clear, fresh complexion.

Finally, the Rosemary, Lemon and Bergamot Essential Oils provide an uplifting citrus aroma.

USPA Deep Cleansing Mud Mask
Mistletoe & Fennel Extracts

This mask is easy to apply. After cleansing and exfoliating your skin you just apply a thin layer over your face and neck and then leave it for 10 minutes before rinsing it clean with water. Recommended frequency of use is once or twice a week.

I usually use it in the evenings and afterwards apply a face serum and night moisturiser before going to bed. As a result my face looks radiant and fresh in the morning.

Like all Uspa products this mask is:
  • 100% Australian made
  • Botanical ingredients
  • Sulphate & paraben free
  • Free from synthetic colour or fragrance
  • Mineral oil free &
  • Cruelty free.

Mistletoe& Fennel Extracts

To be honest I would not classify my skin as congested however I enjoy using this mask and feel my skin definitely benefits from it.

I love the tightening sensation of my skin as the mask dries on it.

I also find the citrus aroma rejuvenating and uplifting but this may also be the result of the 10 minute rest I enjoy whilst the mask is applied on my face. I love the excuse of a mask to completely rest and relax.

After removing the mask my skin always feels fabulously clean, soft and smooth, and does look more radiant, fresh and thus youthful! The oil around my T-zone is always reduced.

I believe every skin type would benefit from using this mask but if you have congested, oily or acne affected skin I think you would see even more benefits! 

I will happily continue using this Uspa Deep Cleansing Mud Mask as part of my evening routine twice a week.

Priceline's Top Selling Products

I recently attended the amazing Priceline Beauty Prescription Event.

At this event we learnt of the new release products coming up at Priceline from over 60 brands in the next 6 months. 

Let me tell you there are soooo many amazing products about to be released! 

Regularly keep popping into your local Priceline store or check them out online HERE to see what's new! 

If you follow Fabulous and Fun Life on Instagram you would have seen a sneak peek of quite a few of these products on my Insta Stories. If you missed this you're in luck as I saved them into my highlights section. You need to be on your mobile to see these highlights.

There will be specific blog posts in the future about some of my favourite new release products such as Face Halo

Face Halo

the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lipsticks (nothing budges these lipsticks, not eating nor drinking nor anything), 

the Australis Customisable palettes and more! 

Australis Customisable Palette

The new Models Own Aquaproof Eyeshadow Palette also looks absolutely incredible! The shades are so pigmented and the packaging looks amazing! I kept wanting to wipe off the water drops, which of course weren't actually water drops but the design of the packaging! 

And did I mention the eyeshadows are waterproof! 

Yes, you can go swimming in them!

Anyway getting back to the topic of today's blog post it was fascinating to find out what the top 5 sellers have been at Priceline over the past 12 months. 

There's always a good reason products are so successful! 

It's because they've been tried and tested and work! 

Lists like this help me decide which products I should be buying when I'm unsure about exactly which product to buy in a certain category.

For your convenience I have added links to these products to Priceline's website. All links are in bold pink.
