This is a review post. Not a sponsored post. But for more information please read my disclosure policy. Not all products sent for review are included. Some are just not worth mentioning or didn’t really work out for us. These are the best and the brightest featuring Clairol, Benefit Cosmetics, Nivea for Men and Little Swallow. Ready for the first time EVER? Let’s go.

CLAIROL nice ‘n easy {gifted product}

My Mother has grey hair. Under her lovely Auburn or Chocolate brown colour, she would almost be entirely grey. But since her sister wears her hair all natural and they already look similar enough, for now, my mum dyes hers. A sometimes tricky and expensive business. Enter CLAIROL nice’n easy with their free sample and off she went. My cousin Bec applied it for Mum and took some photos for me. Thanks lovely! Bec found it easy to deal with and about the normal level of smelly. It covered the roots well and even managed to combine the colours. That was pretty impressive considering Mum’s last colour was almost black and they were dying over that. In the end, it was two thumbs up for the product and a minor thumbs down for me for picking a bit too light shade. They’ll use it again. You can buy Clairol nice ‘n easy online for $14.49.

Pore’Fessional – Benefit {purchased}

Dear lord on high this product rock, rocked my socks. I have a face with big pores. Kind of oily skin and big pores. So looking all haggard and exhausted after my 4.30am start for the Blogopolis weekend I stumbled into the nearest Benefit counter with some blog friends and said, make me look less horrific please! When they applied the POREfessional I pretty much told the lady to stop what she was doing and get me a box of my very own. Used as a primer I find it helps coverage, reduces the appearance of pores {as it should} and means that your make up holds longer and better. Five out of five in all categories. A little on the pricey side at $52 for the pack {includes moisturiser sample bottle}. Overseas prices are cheaper FYI.

Sensitive Anti-Perspirant – Nivea for Men {gifted}

 My Hubby is a sensative dear. He uses a special laundry powder, all natural soaps and shaving creams etc. He also gets itchy if a clothing tag comes within 5 metres of him. Don’t we all. I was offered this for trial and said, yes please, my sooky la lah Hubby will give it a go. And so he has, for almost a month now and I think we are a converted. I say we because I have an aversion to all things cheap, stinky men’s anti-perspirant. This has a manly smell to it {I wore it one day and kept looking for the nice smelling dude} but it’s not over powering at all. Hubby has had no issues using it and has had no allergic type reactions to it. Win. He’s not at all keen on the roll on though, say his arm pit hair kind of sticks to it. Am I the only one who thinks that’s all kinds of gross..!? Good. I didn’t think so.

 iPad & Camera Cover – Little Swallow {purchased at a discount}

The final product that I’ve found and loved this month is my new iPad cover and camera baggy by Zoe at Little Swallow {formally A Boys Mumma}. She made this for me after I used my last case as a jewellery bag and it never saw an iPad again. Great colours, great quality and just a bit of fun too. This keeps everything I need safe if I need to throw them in my handbag for a day or while travelling. You can get your own set for $45. You could also order a camera strap to match or a cute softie or two. Contact Zoe via her blog for more information.
