Beauty News // Shop + Report


Though I’m just back from a weekend away with Chris for our 5th anniversary, I kept true to my title of beauty blogger and had my eyes peeled for new beauty news in the area while we were away. I thought it might be helpful to share some of the exciting beauty news with you all, and if you would like to keep up to date with the news faster add me on Instagram (@emmabovary) or Twitter (@emmabovaryblog)
 We spent Friday wandering around Rosebud, and I was elated to see tickets on the shelf and space cleared for some of my most loved French skincare brands! Uriage, Bioderma and La Roche Posay make some products that really work for me, and I can’t wait for these brands to roll out across all Priceline stores so everyone can take advantage of some lovely French skincare. For those who are yet to try any of these brands, I would recommend these products:
Uriage
Eye cream

Day Cream
Facial Spray
Bioderma
Crealine H2O

Facial Scrub

La Roche Posay

Effaclar Duo

I’m planning on picking up another tube of LRP Effaclar Duo as mine has just run out, some Bioderma H2O and a new moisturiser or sunscreen from LRP as well.

Speaking of exciting Priceline developments, they have finally rolled out Hydraluron and Eysilix (which I was very happy to receive from Priceline!) and us Aussie’s now have regular access to some top notch skincare. For information about the famed Hydraluron (which will no doubt sell out fast so run!) see the amazing Caroline Hirons, who is always recommending it as a serum to use underneath moisturiser to lock in hydration. It retails for $35 AUD- if you have tried it, let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below!
It is becoming quite evident that I don’t mind a gander in a pharmacy, fair to say? I was in Rosebud Terry White when I spotted a new Bubblegum themed nail collection from Revlon, including the famous Whimsical nail polish that I have had in my saved searches on eBay forever! I also ended up getting Girly from the same collection, and I am mighty pleased with both shades.
The new range of Ulta3 nail polishes have also been spotted at a few pharmacies (including TW Rosebud) and I grabbed a few of the shimmer + glitter shades, one of which was the amazing black + white dotted topcoat called Stop the Press. For a mere $2 these polishes are great quality and some of the shades are really unique, so I highly recommend picking up a few if you can.


Do you have any beauty news to share?

What is the latest beauty item you’ve purchased?

  1. Funny you should say you picked up Girly as well - I was going to ask you about whether Revlon would release that shade here when I saw you posted Whimsical to Instagram! Need to seriously check out Terry White :p And I can totally feel Hydraluron becoming my next purchase ... sigh.

  4. Ooh I've been wanting to try the Hydraluron after reading Caroline Hiron's posts raving about it. I live not about 40 mins from Rosebud, it's a nice coastal spot!

    This post has made me very excited, I'm going to be stalking my local Priceline this week :D

    Hope you had a lovely anniversary, congratulations!

    1. I pretty much add whatever Caroline Hirons suggests to my lust list, I am glad to hear that she is influencing you as well :P I love that area of Melbourne, Chris' parents have a house down in that area so we are there quite a bit! I had a great anniversary, was nice to relax (and sneak some polish shopping in, too!) Thanks for your comment Janet!

    1. Thanks Sarah, it has been a wonderful 5 years :) I am making myself finish some skincare first too, high five to us! Am using a great L'Occitane serum which does make it easier to stick with, but I can't wait to try Hydraluron either :)
