My Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing & Skin Toning Brush

The Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush deep cleanses, tones and beautifully conditions the skin.

It delivers a deep pore cleansing action for radiant refined skin. It effectively exfoliates the skin's surface to eliminate excess oil, dead skin cells, dirt and impurities whilst improving the absorption of your skin care products.

I was so excited when I was offered the opportunity to trial this cleansing brush as I had read quite a few brilliant reviews about it.

And I must say that it has definitely lived up to my high expectations.

Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush 

It is simple, quick and easy to use yet very effective.

The brush is soft and gentle.

The device has one button that you push once to Daily Cleanse and twice for Pulse Lift Toning.

The Vibra-Sonic technology results in deep cleansing with the PulseLift Toning mode boosting micro-circulation.

A light comes on to indicate when it is in Pulse Lift Mode so there's no confusing the two modes.

It has a built in timer and 20 second beeps for your T-Zone, cheeks and neck, and then stops after 1 minute. This prevents you from over using the brush.

How quick, easy and non-fuss is that!


Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush 

I've always been a double cleanse type of girl and I still continue to be.

I initially remove my makeup with micellar water, and then I use my regular favourite cleanser, the Ultraceuticals Ultra Hydrating Milk Cleanser, with the Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush.

My skin feels so wonderfully clean, soft and smooth afterwards I can't but help feel it! I know that sounds super weird but trust me you will know exactly what I mean once you use this brush for yourself.

After cleansing at night I then continue my nightly beauty routine by applying my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and then my Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Night creme/mask.

Since using the Cleansing Brush I have noticed that my products sink into my skin so much quicker than before. I love how this Magnitone London Cleansing Brush makes my good quality products even more effective!

After experiencing the thorough deep cleanse this brush provides I must say my skin feels so much cleaner, softer and smoother than it did after I used to manually cleanse my skin with my hands using the same products. 

I don't think I will ever go back to just manually cleansing my skin again!

My skin hasn't looked this radiant and glowing in years as it currently does.


Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush 

Another brilliant feature of the Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush that I absolutely love is that it is 100% waterproof.

As a result of this feature I am able to use this brush in the shower which is so convenient and saves me valuable time rather than cleansing my skin after my shower. 

This brush also comes with a convenient wireless USB magnetic travel charger and travel bag.

The Magnitone London Barefaced Vibra-Sonic Cleansing Brush is available for purchase from RY.com.au. It has a RRP of $120 but is currently on sale for $96 making it a great Christmas gift for a best friend, relative or even yourself.

A set of two replacement heads for this cleaning brush is priced at $30. I have been using my brush for over a month now and my brush is not showing any signs of wear yet. 

Do you use a cleansing brush?

Beauty Related Elf On The Shelf Ideas

Elf on the Shelf is a fabulous and fun Christmas tradition loved by kids of all ages, and to be honest, loved by me and other parents too!

Elf on the Shelf comes to visit daily each December until Christmas and reports back to Santa each night whether the kids in the household have been naughty or nice! 

It's amazing how much better behaved young kids are when they know that Santa is being advised about them each and every night! 

Each morning Elf can be found in a different location in the house doing a different, often mischievous activity.

Being a beauty blogger I couldn't resist compiling this selection of my favourite beauty related Elf on the Shelf ideas for you.

If you are looking to buy an Elf on the Shelf for your own family's fun this year you can find them online hereThere is a choice of a boy or girl elf, with light or dark skin.


The Elf On The Shelf

The following are my favourite beauty related Elf on the Shelf ideas that our family's elf will be getting up to this December.

I love having a bubble bath, as do my kids, and our Elf will be having at least a couple of bubble baths of various types throughout December. Here's some of the best Elf bubble baths I've seen!

Elf Balloon Bubble Baths are also fun, especially as your child can get in among these too! Original source unknown. 



Elves like bathing in 100s & 1000s too! They say it's a good exfoliator! Image from Lily Shop.





Chocolate facials & chocolate baths are another current trend in Elf beauty skin treatments! Image from Natalme.

Remember that chocolate bath on the Bachelor a few seasons ago! 



December is hard work for an Elf so a spa day pampering break is required! Original source unknown.



After the chocolate facial and spa treatment it's makeup time! Elf might need a little practice with the makeup however! Original source unknown. 



This Elf has never looked better thanks to her makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist & assistants! If only I had this sort of an entourage! Image from Chicfluff



After all these beauty treatments & pampering it's time for an Elfie! Image from Kirsten and Co.



And then it's time for an Elf date! Original source unknown.

This final palette, the Colour Edition, is especially exciting for my ethnic skinned beauty loving friends who often can't find a palette with deep and vibrant enough shades for their colouring.

In a first from Rimmel, they have designed a striking and varied shade combo palette that's  specially designed for black and darker skin tones. 

I love that beauty brands are starting to reflect the diversity of our population and cater for everyone.

L'Oreal Paris - New Makeup Releases

I was lucky to recently be sent a bag of L'Oreal Paris new makeup releases to trial and review for you.

I was so excited that of course I started using everything immediately the minute after I had unboxed and photographed them! 

Yes, I love discovering and playing with new makeup!

Here are my first impressions of the makeup items I received.

L'Oreal Paris New Release Makeup 


L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks

These first items are not strictly speaking brand new to me.

The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks were released in July this year and I reviewed them at that time as part of the beautyheaven trial team. 

Regular readers of Fabulous and Fun Life will probably remember that I also published a review of these lipsticks on this blog too. Click HERE to read my full review.

I was so excited to see three of these L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks included in the bag of goodies I received, in the shades:
  • 103 Blush In A Rush
  • 346 Scarlet Silhouette
  • 463 Plum Tuxedo.
Although I already had the first shade listed, fortunately I didn't have the other two.

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks

These matte lipsticks contain both camellia and jojoba oils and as a result are THE most comfortable and hydrating matte lipsticks I've ever worn. 

They have a beautiful velvety smooth feel.

The pigmentation is wonderfully matter than matte, with an intense colour payoff.

The colour you see is the colour you get on your lips.

L-R: Blush In A Rush, Scarlet Sihouette, Plum Tuxedo.

These lipsticks are long lasting although I did need to reapply them after eating but this is fairly standard for me with all lipsticks.

The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks have a recommended retail price of $21.95.

Click HERE to check out the full range of 15 shades available to purchase from Priceline. Next on my 'to buy' list of these lipsticks is Matte Erotique.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Paint

Also included in my package of new L'Oreal Paris makeup releases were two Infallible Matte Lip Paints in the shades:
  • 211 Babe-in
  • 212 Nude-ist 
L'Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Paint L-R: Babe-in & Nude-ist.

These lip paints come in two different finishes, a high gloss lacquer and a velvet matte.

Both products I received were velvet mattes. 

I found these liquid lip paints to have high impact pigmentation

L'Oreal Lip Paints L-R: 211 Babe-In, 212 Nude-ist

The lip paint glided on smoothly and easily using the slanted tear drop shaped applicator.

These lip paints also have a lovely scent that I noticed upon application.

The L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Paints have a recommended retail price of $19.95.

Click HERE to check out the full range of 10 shades available for purchase from Priceline. 

L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation

I love a sunkissed glowy look and the L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow delivers it!

I received all three different shades of this liquid foundation, namely the 
  • Light
  • Medium Light
  • Medium Dark
I found the Light shade to match my skin the best, although this might change as I become a bit more tanned in Summer.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundations

This foundation feels amazingly lightweight on yet provides a beautiful natural looking coverage. It has that 'my skin but better' look, resulting in a beautiful sunkissed glowy look!

It has added moisture and light reflecting pigments to provide for supple skin with a radiant glow.

This will definitely be a favourite foundation of mine over summer.

The L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation has a recommended retail price of $24.95.

It is currently on special at Priceline for $19.95. Click HERE to check it out on the Priceline website.

L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll

I love the retro packaging of this  Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll mascara with the soft pink and blue. It reminds me of the show Happy Days.

L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll

This mascara worked well for me in lengthening my lashes and curling them. Once applied I didn't need to touch up my mascara all day.

It is easy to layer this mascara for an even more voluminous look. I tend to use one layer during the day and two at night. I experience no clumping or flaking with either one or two layers.

The L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll has a recommended retail price of $21.95.

Click HERE to check out the other shade of this mascara available for purchase from Priceline, namely a beautiful indigo.

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber

This is a two step mascara. 

Step 1 is a black primer which volumises the lashes, thickening each lash to build volume.

Step 2 lengthens the lashes with an ultra black formula enriched with 20x more fibres than the Superstar Original Mascara, for extreme length.

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber Step 1: Volumises Lashes

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber Step 2: Lengthens Lashes

Using this mascara my lashes appeared fuller, lifted & longer. 

My lashes curled absolutely beautifully using this mascara.

The L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fibre has a recommended retail price of $28.95. 

L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation

The L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral foundation range has been reformulated to offer clean coverage that actively improves skin texture with 95% pure sea mineral extracts.

It now contains the addition of Kaolin & Zinc and claims to improve the skin's complexion in just 4 weeks.

This powder claims to reduce acne and blemishes, even out your skin tone, control your oil and soften your skin texture for a radiant glow.

As I haven't yet used this product for 4 weeks I can't comment on all these claims but it definitely controlled my oil.

This mineral foundation comes in five shades ranging from 1W Ivory to 6N Rose. It also comes in a new finishing powder.

I received the following three shades:
  • 2.R/2.C      Rose Vanilla
  • 3.N            Creme Beige 
  • 4.D/4.W     Golden Natural
L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation

I like the method of dispensing this powder. There's a well in the jar which is covered with netting and you swirl your brush in the well against the netting. This dispenses the perfect amount of powder and minimises the risk of accidental spills. 



I found this powder to be comfortable to wear all day and it lasted well. On it's own it offers lightweight coverage.

I prefer to wear this powder on top of the Glam Beige Foundation for more coverage.

The L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation has a recommended retail price of $34.95.
