Nioxin 3D Intensive Hair Booster – Aja's pick

I'm now 18-months postpartum and I'm still feeling the effects of hair loss. My usual thick locks have been fragile, dry and thin, especially around my hairline, so I've been looking at replacements in my routine to help assist. Cue the Nioxin 3D Intensive Hair Booster. This leave-on hair treatment is formulated with a KeraPro Complex, designed for progressed-thinning hair, working on concerns such as receding hairlines or low-density crowns. I appreciate the leave-in formulation as I don't have a lot of time when washing my hair, so this makes things a lot easier. It helps condition and forms a protective barrier against damage, and I felt my hair become stronger in the month I have been trialing it. The warming sensation after application is interesting and makes me feel like the vitamin complex is getting into the hair cuticle and working its magic. My results say it's working too!

Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Gel  Scarlett's pick

During my recent holiday to the Gold Coast to visit family, I was pleasantly surprised by the tropical weather. Unlike the recent temperature drop in Sydney, the Gold Coast had extremely warm sunshine – warm enough to still be swimming at the beach! However, after having a swim and walking around in the elements, I soon realised I needed to add some hydration back into my skin. Fortunately, my mum had a bottle of Banana Boat Aloe Sun Gel on standby, which worked wonders in just a matter of hours. Let me tell you, this aloe sun gel provided soothing relief to my skin. Formulated with pure aloe vera extracts, it effectively replenished and moisturised my skin, preventing any peeling. My shoulders looked and felt visibly relieved after just a few applications from the afternoon into the evening. Any redness vanished, showing almost no signs of sun damage. I'm definitely keeping this product on standby for the summer ahead. At just $8.99, it's super affordable and won't break the bank. I highly recommend anyone traveling overseas for a European summer to bring this along.

GLAM by Manicare® Bella Lashes – Sarah's pick 

Manicare® products have been a beauty mainstay in my collection ever since my mum bought me my first nail buffing block when I was 10, and their GLAM by Manicare® lashes range are no exception. When the Bella Flexi lashes came across my desk, I was eager to try them for my next event. The Flexi Lash range are synthetic, cruelty-free, light-weight and offer both half and full lashes. The Bella Flexi half lashes have a clear band which makes them easier to adhere to the eye, whilst still looking natural and wispy. I like how this particular style is the perfect middle ground between bold and subtle and elevates even the most simple eye look. I quite routinely find myself making a mad-dash to Priceline on a Friday night to buy a set of GLAM by Manicare® lashes, so I’m set for the weekend ahead. Definitely a staple style from here on out! 

Nature’s Way Beauty Collagen Gummies – Rachel's pick

I’ve never found a supplement I looked forward to having every day until the Nature’s Way Beauty Collagen Gummies came into my life – these are an absolute treat! The moment I was offered to try one by a lovely colleague, I was instantly hooked and needed to have my own jar. The gummies are a delicious berry flavour and have the perfect amount of sweetness. They are 99.8% sugar free and yet easily satisfy my afternoon sweet cravings, with the added bonus of treating my skin! It’s a win-win situation all around. The gummies are such an easy, yummy way to get my collagen fix with the VERISOL™ bioactive collagen peptides in the gummies working to help nourish my skin – keeping it soft and smooth especially coming into the drying cold season. I love being able to care for my skin from the inside out. Always read the label. Use only as directed. Vitamins do not replace a balanced diet.
