Review: Mint Microfiber Wash

The other half would totally cracked up when or if he sees that I am writing about this. In all honesty, however, I believe in good care products. Now it doesn't matter if it was for my makeup brushes or household and in this case, microfiber cloths. Microfiber cloths are used in my house for all sorts of purposes, a very multipurpose cloth that I use constantly everywhere. Be it for our cars, our table tops, to clean this, that... etc. Now I never knew there was something I could do to revive microfiber cloths. Who's here have put them in the washing machine and only to find that they come out unforgivingly dry and crunchy... just not quite the fluffy, absorbent as when they were new? I know I have been in that situation.

So what is this Mint MWash?

It is designed to thoroughly clean and revive microfiber cloths, towels, pads, mitts... anything of the microfiber materials. Unfortunately I won't be able to tell whether normal wash actually clean them properly... because with their extensive amount of usage to clean the cars, and other surfaces mean that they absorb a lot of products, dirt, and dust... and these need to be rid of.

Oh and Mint is the brand - how adorable. :)

Guess what?

I tried... and the result is nothing short of remarkable. I even took a photo... or two.

The microfiber cloths and pads came out clean as new! and..... They're fluffy!! Wow!
They're not cracking dry like when you wash them in normal wash with other normal detergent... and they are actually soft and fluffy... just like when they're brand new. They don't wrinkle or scrunch out of shape either. They don't lose their colour. They have been revived!
This is excellent news, especially when you have spent your money on some good microfiber cloths, you want them to last. Just like getting a good makeup brush... ah, you know what I mean.

Tip: Use with warm water - I set mine to 40 degrees - on Delicate setting. I have an LG front loader.

Seriously worth it. Look no further... Mint M-Wash is the answer to all your microfiber products - Oh I'm so excited with the entire Mint products... Yes, I know, they're technically car care products... but who says they're only for boys ;)

Easing back into blogging

I was hitting the accelerator pedal years ago when I started blogging. I had hit the brake in the past year or two when I started pursuing my other love of being creative in the floral design field. Do I miss blogging? yes I sure do. Do I ever run out of things to say or review or write about? No, actually that's not the case. It is more about whether or not it is worth writing it out loud. I can be a little irritated at myself because the blog is not how I envisioned it to be, hence at times I kept wanting to perfect it... but perhaps the thing I should just do is to keep going... to keep writing.

I haven't been as crazy in buying or wearing makeup too, despite my undying love for them. So many other things in life crop up on you and you prioritise where your hard earned money goes towards... as you know what I mean.

I have received messages and emails in regards to my blogging and I thank you all for that. Really! It makes me want to get back into blogging even more.

At times though, I feel that the world has become too saturated now with the bloggers... it's kinda crazy. It used to not be as how it is now. When we all first started back in the 2009s... all of us bloggers... I think we all had a different mindset on how things were going to go or had no idea that it was going to be such a hit... this field of blogging. Every second person I know now blogs, either it is about food or beauty... what a world. That's one of the things that has put me off a little... especially the past a year... because I wonder if you would still like to hear my thoughts...?

Another things, this blog was started as purely a beauty blog, however I want to incorporate life topics, floral design, home cook, etc. What do you think?

Talk soon :)

If you smoke... by Queensland Government

Launched in May this year, the If you smoke, your future’s not pretty
campaign focuses on the effects of smoking on young people’s physical
appearance. I have never been a fan of smoking. I don’t understand why that around 1 in 5
Queensland women smoke during pregnancy. How smoking has become a major cause of
preventable disease and death in Queensland. How smoking has become responsible
for over 3,400 deaths in Queensland every year.

Isn’t it crazy that female smokers aged 18-24 can smoke up to 20 cigarettes a
day. Not only it will affect your physical appearances, but the overall impact
on your health and wellbeing.

I received news that the campaign is doing the opposite of ‘make-up’ –
‘make-under’ – showcasing what you may look like being a smoker. I had missed
out on the actual opportunity of being ‘make-under’ but I thought I would still
share this campaign – I do think you have the choice to make.

For more information, visit

The next road show is going to be at Sunshine Plaza, Maroochydore (Thursday,
23rd October)
and Westfield Garden City (Saturday, 25th October).

Lush goes EGG-static over EASTER-tastic Collection 2014

This Easter, Lush brings you a super cute, generous collection ranging from bunnies, eggs to carrots and all that jazz! I’m actually super keen to check it out when it is launched in store and online nationwide on April 3rd. Let’s get on to it shall we?

First, we have Golden Egg bath melt ballistic ($6.50)


This is a brand new invention – an egg shaped bath bomb coated in bath melt mixture. Its outer layer dissolves first when you first place it in the water. It sinks to the bottom of the bathtub at first, then pops to the surface as the fizzing centre is revealed. The outer bath melt mix is made using Colombian Peace Village cocoa butter and olive oil from permaculture project in Palestine. The scent is of the Honey I Washed the Kids. Definitely inspired by the chocolate cream eggs. Yum!

Keep reading to find out more in store this April!

Review | Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer SC-4

2014-02-18 11.45.21

Today I thought I would share with you my little secret weapon for the past couple of months ever since it landed on to my lap. I have not been able to put it down since, and carry it with me everywhere for those “just in case” moments. I really had to give it the full blown test drive, how could I not. It is the two-toned concealer by Laura Mercier.

Weleda March/April Promotion

2014-03-03 17.28.14

2014-03-03 17.28.09

Weleda is having a promotion this March/April months with 25% off the One-Step Cleanser & Toner.

It is an easy step to remove face makeup before washing your face. This is what I am using it for, rather than a sole cleanser. I prefer to double cleanse and wash my face after wearing makeup throughout the day.

This contains witch hazel which is an overall clarifying toner for the skin. However it may be drying if you have dry skin.

2014-03-03 17.28.38

The scent is quite strong and I could straight away tell it’s an astringent type. My skin is not a huge fan of it generally, so take note. Hence why I avoid the eyes straight away when using this. It does leave the skin feeling clean and it works alright in the areas I am most oily (on nose especially). Although I think it still does not cleanse as thorough as some other facial makeup remover cleansers, due to the fact I do test this when using foundation etc.

It is milky look to it but very watery, so this is not one to massage into the skin like cleansing lotions or creams. It is not as gentle, unfortunately, as I could feel some kind of either menthol or that sort of feel to it. I feel that this would work amazingly for teenagers and early university days rather than at my age now and onwards.

On another note, Weleda is a lovely company that has been around way way longer than my mother or my grandmother have been around! There’s gotta be something there…

You can find Weleda at David Jones, and selected health food shops.

Available now
