Bloggers United AU Brisbane Event Goody Bag Haul


Two weeks ago I shared my recap of the Bloggers United AU Brisbane Event. I've finally found time to unpack my suitcase, go through all the goodies and actually photograph them. I've most definitely missed a few things, as I actually forgot to grab them from the brand representatives - but I'll mention those I can remember at the end.

Like all the events, all the products won't fit in one photograph. But here's a sneak peek.

Boots Laboratories Optiva Skincare Two Week Trial*

Boots Laboratories Optiva Skincare Two Week Trial - Sweetaholic Beauty

A few weeks ago,  I was asked if I wanted to try out the Boots Laboratories Optiva Skincare range. I've tried a few bits and pieces in the past, so of course I jumped at the chance. I was also almost out of my current skincare range, so this was perfect timing to try something new.

According to Boots Laboratories, the Optiva range doesn't just hydrate your skin, but actually helps form a stronger barrier to keep moisture in. They claim with the help of these products, specifically the Aqua-Capture Serum, you'll have healthier looking skin in just two weeks. So, I decided to do a two-week trial and share my results.

Australis Cosmetics AC Gems Limited Edition Velourlips Collection

Australis Cosmetics AC Gems Limited Edition Velourlips Collection Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

A few months ago, one of my favourite Aussie brands Australis Cosmetics, released four new shades of their awesome Velourlips lippies. Before I launch into my review, I'm well aware that a lot of people don't actually like the Velourlips and that's absolutely fine. I have almost every shade released and am a huge fan of them, so I'll say that upfront I do like the formula, the smell and all the rest of it. This post here is to show off the four new limited edition shades, and what I think of them rather than a full review on the Velourlips as a whole. If you do want a full review, you can check out my original thoughts here.

The four shades are Full Moon-Stone, Quartz and All, Em-Ruled City, and To-Paz or Not To-Paz. Australis have kept with the theme of overly complicated shade names, but that doesn't worry me too much. One thing you'll notice about this collection is the out-there shades. White, green and blue are not exactly your everyday drugstore shades. I was pretty excited to see a local brand take on some daring colours.
