Review On the Go: Alexami Perfect Puff Minerals–Blush–Coral Pink

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Boxing Day :) I have a little review for you to take a look at before the year ends.

Quick and easy, simple to apply, fit snugly into your purse and makeup bags – comes this cutest little baby pocket blush by Australian brand “Alexami”.

This puff is anti-bacterial and it disperses powder evenly through its porous sponge. Little goes a long way with this baby, as with their other mineral powders, they are pure pigments.

- No Talc
- No Carmine
- No Silicones

This is also one of the best trick. Use a clear lipgloss and mix it with the blush and you get your own personalised lip gloss :) For example, this clear (vegan) lip gloss from Alexami.

Alexami Facial Mitt and its bestfriend, the Lemon Myrtle Tea Tree Handmade Soap

Let me tell you something, when one product works wonderfully well with another, you may call it a miracle, I may call it, they were meant to be. This is exactly the case of that. From the moment I saw it, seen how it worked, I just could not argue. These products are here to stay, in the Blushfully’s book of beauty goodness.

Introducing…

IMG_0306

This is a handmade soap from the brand Alexami, an Australian made mineral makeup and certified organic skincare line. They may be new in the radar (launched in 2009), but already making quite a mark in the beauty industry with their strong focus on empowering and educating women. They strongly believe that beauty should be simple, and what we put on our skin should be in harmony with what Mother Nature has given us (quote: Alexami Story). I couldn’t agree more!

Carrying a variety of other handmade soap, this Lemon Myrtle & Tea Tree in particular is a special one. In my eyes, anyway. Not only that the base of it is coconut oil – yum, you know I love coconut. It smells divine… and it is also anti-bacterial, making it perfect for hand washing and body washing to rid of all the dirt, germs and grime. I, in particular, love using this to clean my makeup brushes… and this special (dirty in the photo) facial mitt.

This facial mitt has the pH level of that similar to your skin! 5.5! It is made of corn fabric and silk, which makes it a super nice exfoliating mitt without being too harsh on the skin. It also, as seen in the above photo, helps to remove all the dirt and foundation. It really takes it all off! Yay!

But what to do now, now that it’s all gross like that? I use the hard soap. Lather it, massage it well with the mitt… and…

VOILA!!

Clean as brand new again! How amazing is that! No magic involved, I promise you…

 

If you’re interested in purchasing these, you can head over to their website at www.alexami.com or you can visit their first pop up ecobeautique at Level 1, Westfield Carindale, in between Forever New and Glassons.

Facial Mitt: AU$8.95

Soap: AU$6.95

Whether it is for yourself or as gifts, they are inexpensive and might as well be a staple in your beauty cabinet ;)

Alexami Cosmetics Eco Beautique Opens @ Westfield Carindale

DRUM ROLL please…

Let me introduce you to the newest pop up in the new classy Westfield Carindale,

an Australian owned, Australian made

Botanicals based cosmetics that you really should look out for!

and the WINNER of 2014 Natural Beauty Award by Nature & Health for their 3 in 1 Pumpkin Enzyme Facial Polish

 Winner

ALEXAMI

The brand is based on active botanicals and non-toxic, safe cosmetics. Not only it is good for you, it is also good for the environment. Their mission is simple, work with what mother nature gives us. To look and feel good, it has to come from inside and outside, this is where Alexami is there to educate, empower and engage women in looking after themselves… simply.

For those of you who have followed for these years, you would know that my philosophy is around the same page. Of the fact that “one of the things that make one happy.. is clear skin” and my other one “makeup for everyday women should still be you, just better.” To not compromise on quality and to not have to pay overpriced quality products… are something I always look forward to.

This is a new concept boutique with all things eco friendly and amazingly designed wood cabinets and materials. Recycled and biodegradable materials were also used in their packaging and display stands. Hence the term …

“eco beautique”

If you happen to come by Westfield Carindale, do come by and check it out. There are some amazing specials going on at the moment during this holiday season.

I suggest starting with their skincare package deals

Basic Essentials Package

3step

Or the ultimate essentials you need for your skin, which is

Ultimate Hydration Complete Package

shop

At the moment, you can also get an extra free toner and free eva travel cosmetics pouch (which is super duper soft and amazing, to be honest with you).

Feel free to check out their website at www.alexami.com

Or email them directly at info@alexami.com

or visit the store at Westfield Carindale on level 1 (easiest way is to find The Coffee Club or Forever New and you would find the store).
