The Coast to Coast Ultra Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Hello everyone!!

Today I want to share with all of you, one of my favorite cleansers! Unfortunately, the brand Coast to Coast is no longer carried at Ulta, which is where I purchased this from. Coast to Coast is an Australian skincare brand whose products are an absolute delight for my skin 🙂 I have used their lovely clay mask (review HERE) and also their cleansing oil (review HERE). Don’t you just hate it when something you love is no longer easy to find 😦

Atleast now I know what to buy if I ever travel to Australia in the near future 😀

I have dry sensitive skin..the worst skin type you can have I guess and the hardest to please! The gentle cleanser from Coast to Coast is actually really gentle on my skin! It has a gel like texture which foams nicely when in contact with water. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft, clean but not stripped dry and does not leave any kind of film on the skin.. which is awesome. I have not used this to remove makeup and to be fair they don’t claim that it will act as a makeup remover.

Ingredient List

Ingredient List

The ingredient list for the cleanser is very good in my opinion! I love that they have Glycerin and Aloe Vera as the first few ingredients. These are amazing ingredients for dry skin. The ingredient decyl glucoside is great for those with sensitive skin. It is a mild foaming agent which is plant derived and gentle.

I was initially wary of using this due to the presence of so many plant oils and extracts because although they might be ‘natural’ some of them can irritate the skin. However, I am pleased to report that these do not irritate my sensitive skin 🙂

The cleanser has a very mild scent of eucalyptus and mint which is not over powering or irritating to the skin. The smell pretty much disappears once the cleanser foams up.

Overall I am in love with this cleanser and I hope to find something as good once this runs out.

Have you tried any Coast to Coast products? What do you think of the brand?

Until next time..ciao!!

Jewelry Haul :)

Hello folks!

Today I thought do something a bit different on the blog by showing you guys some of the jewelry items I picked up this summer while out shopping with mom 🙂

I don’t wear a lot of chunky jewelry..my preference leans more towards simple stuff you can wear anywhere..to the grocery store and to work 😀

Rose gold chains

Rose gold chains

I’ve got a fascination for all things rose gold (Laptops and phones included ) and I could not pass up on these guys which were on sale at one of the local stores where my folks are based. The chain with the cubes is a favorite..it looks really nice when worn with a white outfit in particular. The other chain with the 3 different rings is a common pattern, but I picked it up since I don’t own anything like it.

My first 'big ' piece of jewelry :D

My first ‘big ‘ piece of jewelry 😀

So remember what I said about me liking simple jewelry at the beginning of this post…well I decided to try out something which is out of my comfort zone 🙂 The above piece is a dull gold color which, resembles battle armor 😐 according to the husband ! I have yet to wear this outside my house..he he ..will try to wear it out soon.

enamel jewelry

Enamel jewelry

My love affair with enamel jewelry  started when I first laid my eyes upon some exquisite pieces from the Austrian jewelry company called Freywille. Check out their website HERE to see for your self their lovely enamel art work on 18K gold jewelry. The above pendant and earrings are not 18k gold nor are they from Freywille but they look equally pretty and I got them on sale 😉 …so I am a very happy girl!

Gun metal anyone?

Gun metal anyone?

I picked up this gun metal chain and earrings set solely because of the orange stones! The orange stones and the gun metal go so well together and look great when worn with outfits which are dark in color.

I am pretty happy with my haul, especially since it has been a while since I picked up any jewelry pieces. Hope you all enjoyed seeing these pieces! What have you guys been shopping for lately?

Until next time…ciao!!
