Pranamat, review and first impression!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!

I am so excited to share with you another review post. This time I will be reviewing the pranamat eco. Pranamat ECO features dozens of lotus-shaped massage stimulators that put gentle pressure on your problem areas to relieve minor aches and pains. Plus they use 100% natural and eco-friendly materials.

Here is the link to their site

Pranamat

Below is an example of what the mat looks like.

It was nothing like I expected, I was so nervous to lay down the first time, thinking it would hurt but it didn’t at all. It was almost soothing.

I found myself feeling more relaxed.

I normally spend around 15 minutes laying on it and get off toasty warm and red and feeling calm.

The reason I was so interested in trying the pranamat is because of the benefits they could bring.

These being;

– increasing your energy levels

– helping with depression and stress

– acting as a powerful pain killer

– easing muscle spasms, reducing muscle tension, and easing spinal problems

– compensating for lack of physical activity (e.g. plane flights, prolonged travel by car, prolonged work at the computer, illnesses connected with immobility)

– helping to improve metabolism and help to reduce fat and cellulite

After ordering the pranamat it didn’t take long to arrive, and came in perfect condition ready to use. I have now been using the mat 3-4 times a week for the last two weeks and definitely am noticing a difference in my stress levels and overall happiness, I am working more and harder but feel less stressed and more happy.

I honestly was sceptical when I first read about it but I can’t wait to continue using it and seeing even more of the benefits from regular use.

How it works:

The Pranamat uses the principles of acupressure and reflexology, and works on the idea that the tiny lotus spikes stimulate active nerve centres and intensify the local blood flow and lymph circulation.

This then causes the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain killer and happiness hormone that are effective in blocking pain, and producing analgesia and a overall sense of wellbeing.

More information can be found on their website as well.

Review:

What I like about it; I see a real difference in even just one use.

What I don’t like; nothing except you have to be careful getting off cause I grazed my elbow (mainly cause I am clumsy)

Overall thoughts: this mat could be my saving grace, as someone who works a lot and doesn’t get a lot of free time, I find I get quick results and definitely notice more energy and less stress.

I would give it a 9/10

You definitely have to be a patient person to use it but it definitely makes a difference.

Where you can buy one:

Hair and Me! Overall review!

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog!

I hope you’ve been liking my posts recently, I’ve been trying to post more often for you guys so let me know what you think.

Recently I was gifted an amazing pack by Hair and me , so I thought I would share what I thought of them, what I recommend and so on!

In my box of goodies, I was given;

– Blonde shampoo and conditioner

– peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner

-peppermint hair mask

– detangler brush

What was my favourite;

I think my favourite would have to be the blonde shampoo and conditioner, it doesn’t overtone my hair but it keeps it nice and bright and also leaves my hair feeling conditioned and supple.

I did love the peppermint shampoo for the change in seasons though, both my partner and I both get a dry flaky scalp in winter ❄️

I noticed a major difference in the amount of dandruff I had after a week of using it as well as the irritation my scalp gets as well. In conjunction with the mask as well my scalp and hair was feeling fresh and new!

I also found using the detangling brush instead of my usual hair brush my hair was easy to brush and was left less frizzy and required less styling. Which is always a plus!

Review;

Peppermint Shampoo and conditioner; 8/10

What I love; it leaves me feeling refreshed and improves my dry flaky scalp.

What I would change; the peppermint scent is really subtle, and I love peppermint so the only thing I would change is more minty fresh 😂

Blonde shampoo and conditioner; 9/10

What I love; it doesn’t overtone my hair and leaves it soft!

What I would change; absolutely nothing, it is perfect!

Peppermint mask; 8/10

What I love; it makes my hair soft fresh.

What I would change; again I would love it to be more minty.

Detangling brush; 9/10

What I love; absolutely everything.

What I would change; nothing. It’s perfect how it is!

Overall, I think the brand is amazing; the products are high quality and look amazing as well.

It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into creating the products as well as packing them and sending them.

Has anyone tried Hair and me before?

What did you think? Do you have any products you recommend?

Also is there any products or brands you want me to review? Comment to let me know.

Esmi Skincare; Review and Tips for using them!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog, I have been trying to be more active with my Blog Posts, so I hope you guys are liking them. Let me know what you want to see more of. I am also hoping to start Youtube again so let me know if there is any videos you want to see.

Todays review is of the Esmi Skincare skin treats!

I tried out the Exfoliating Charcoal Serum, Brightening Serum and the Anti Redness serum as well. The charcoal one came with a buffing brush as well.

Reviews; 

Overall;

They work well under makeup, leave the skin feeling fresh and give instant visual results on the skin.

For the charcoal serum you have to use the buffing brush otherwise you will have a dark tint on the skin. I noticed my skin did purge a bit after the first week of using it. Then it settled down and my skin was left soft and clear. The anti redness serum is a minty serum and left my skin feeling cool and fresh under my makeup too. The brightening serum was fresh and worked great under my eyes to brighten my dark circles.

The Anti redness was probably my favourite serum, it gave the most visual results and left my skin feeling amazing.

My least favourite would be the charcoal, mainly because it really had to be buffed into the skin if you weren’t wearing makeup otherwise it kind of looked like muddy fake tan.

What I rate Them;

Charcoal; 9/10 

Brightening; 8/10

Anti Redness: 9/10

Sculpsure; Review, results and where to get it done!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my blog, over the last few months Ive been trialling the Sculpsure sessions at The Gold Coast Medical Precinct in Varsity Lakes. They have been amazing and so helpful sharing all the science behind sculpsure for me.

Here is a little video as well incase you want to know more.

Sculpsure Video

To start off I wanted to share a bit of info about Sculpsure; who its for, how it works and so on!

How It Works and the side effects;

The sessions take 25 minutes per area, there isn’t really any side effects; the main one is after the session for a week your fat is a bit tender and has to be massage regularly.

Info on it;

Minimal absorption in dermis leaves skin’s surface unharmed

Contact Cooling™ enhances patient comfort

Feathering of heat spread provides natural-looking results

Up to 24% fat reduction in multisite trials of over 100 patients

Mild and transient side effects

HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES?

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can be treated during your lunch hour and return to work afterwards.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients start to see results within 6 weeks, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks. I could see mine before 6 weeks and could see it even more after my second session.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment. The destroyed fat is then processed by the lymphatic system and naturally eliminated from the body. Once the fat leaves the body, it is gone forever!

My Results and Experience;

I was really impressed with my results, I went in not really expecting any results but definitely saw results. The treatment itself takes 25 minutes and is quite uncomfortable, not unbearable but definitely uncomfortable. It goes through hot and cold sensations and at its worst on my stomach it almost felt like bad period pains. Each session and area felt slightly different and was more bearable if i just distracted myself with my phone and didn’t think about the pain. I found talking made the pain worse because I wasn’t fully distracted. Here is my results. On the top left is before my first treatment, bottom left is before the second and the one on the right is before my third treatment.

Costs, Review, others results and similar treatments and costs;

So for each session it costs an average of $700 per session and they recommend 2 or more sessions for the best results.

Blackbough Swim; haul, unboxing and try on!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog! Todays Blog Post is a haul and try on of some of the Blackbough Swim Collections.

I got 3 pairs and a one piece from their site:

  • Daisy Daze – Tallulah Top and Maui Bottoms
  • Candy Cane- Kylie One Piece
  • Red – Stassy Top and Stassy Cheeky Bottoms
  • NY Noir – Willow Top and Stassy Bottoms

The collection is really well priced; Each piece is around $40US, Some being $45, then the one pieces are $85US. The pieces are comfortable and supportive, and they are also flattering.

Here is a little try on of each pair;

Here is the NY Noir willow top and stassy bottoms.

I love the shape of the bottoms and the top, they are comfortable and flattering. These bottoms are probably my favourite overall in both colours I got them in. I think they are more flattering to my body shape and don’t make me look chunky.

Next up is the one piece. It is so comfortable and well made, the pattern isn’t very flattering on my body shape but I still love it. I think next time I will go for a plain one piece though.

Next is one of their newer styles; the daisy daze set. This one is probably my favourite. I wish I got the cheekier bottoms in this set though. I am definitely going to be investing in more of their bikinis because they are amazing quality. Here is the back of this bikini.

Lucky last is the Red bikini.

I love the shape of this bikini as well, it took a little while getting used to the low front bottoms but now I love them!

This is the back;

I am so in love with all the bikinis I was sent, there’s nothing worse then buying a bikini that is uncomfortable and unflattering.

Which is your favourite of my haul? I love the Daisy Daze!

Tonight’s blog is about the new Mecca Maxima Banana Bake products that I was lucky enough to be sent to try. So I thought I would share my honest thoughts and review.

For $50AUD The products in the set include;

– Banana bake loose powder

– banana bake setting spray

– bake and set brush

Also available is the Banana bake pressed powder which is $24AUD.

I have tried and used each product available in the Banana bake range and here is what I think of them;

Banana bake loose powder

The banana bake loose powder is a lightweight slightly glowy setting powder, a little goes a long way and it leaves the under eyes area looking smooth and bright.

What I love about it;

It has a glowy finish to make them complexion look fresh.

What I don’t like about it;

I feel like it lowers my concealer coverage under the eyes slightly.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake setting spray

The banana bake setting spray is a great way to keep your makeup in place!

What I like about it;

I never get oily when I use it!

What I don’t like about it;

Its main ingredient is alcohol so not so great for any dry skin babes!

I rate it;

5/10

Bake and Set Brush

The bake and set brush is a two sided brush designed to pick up the perfect amount of powder.

What I love about it;

The bristles are soft and it’s so cheap to buy.

What I don’t like;

I wish the fluffy side of the brush was bigger.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake pressed powder

The banana bake pressed powder is similar to the loose in the way that it has a glowy finish. I find the powder to be softer and higher in pigment.

What I like about it;

It leaves the skin looking flawless.

What I don’t like about it;

Honestly nothing, the pressed powder doesn’t have the fault that I found in the loose. It doesn’t lower the coverage it actually makes it more full coverage.

I rate it;

10/10

Overall;

The products are beautiful, high quality and so cheap!

Are they worth the buy;

100%, especially either of the powders.

Below I included a picture of me using the powders lightly.

Has anyone had a chance to try the powders?

What did you think of them? Or do you have any other powders you recommend?
