O COSMEDICS

Its been over a year now since I jumped on board the O cosmedics train and boy I’m glad a did so.

You know what I love so much about this product?? You actually see results pretty much instantly!! You don’t need to be using the it for months on end and waiting to see the magic happen. O is fast acting, I saw results in the first few days which made me feel so confident I had  made the right choice.

I have had so many compliments on my skin since using O. The brightness, glow and all over clarity of my complexion has 100% improved because I’m now using a product that penetrates the deep layers of my skin and doesn’t just touch the surface.

Once I hit 30 and after having a baby my skin changed so much, I needed more and O has been my saving grace!! After all, it makes a huge difference when you can feel confident in your own skin. Not that I wasn’t before hand but I certainly feel more youthful now hahaha and that’s a huge plus!!!

Here are my faves and absolute daily essentials in the O range.

PURE AGE SERUM

This is the one product I can not live without, it certainly is a ‘Hero product” I have literally seen the disappearance of fine line on my forehead and around my eyes. Which is an absolute god send. I have had the same feedback from friends and family that now use O as well. It seems to be everyone’s fave and for good reason!! Who doesn’t want to see the back of wrinkles.

Super concentrated doses of pure L-Sodium Hyaluronate Acetyl Octapeptide-3 and a 100% natural skin-tightener make this topical skin filler a potent youth accelerator. Fortified with encapsulated multi vitamins and V8 Peptide Complex® this serum helps to relax the muscle and decrease appearance of lines and wrinkles leaving the skin hydrated and radiant. Hero product! Perfect for all skin types looking for super hydration calming and soothing youth and radiance. Use 1-2 pumps around the eyes, face and throat morning and/or evening after cleansing and before hydrating.

RECOVERY CREAM

Daily must have. I use the recovery cream every morning before I apply my make up for all day hydration and glow. The bottle last for ever as you really don’t need to go overboard with the quantity you use. I have recently started adding half a scoop of the Pure C+BHA for extra radiance and once again I am so impressed with the speed in which this works and how its also enhanced the results from my other products. 

Recovery cream- Specifically formulated to support the skin’s repair mechanism help restore its protective barrier and dramatically assist reduction of inflammation.This super-comforting yet ultra-powered age defying cream has been fortified with potent antioxidants which gives a “volumising effect without surgery” and ultimate skin radiance. V8 Peptide Complex™ ensures skin is super hydrated protected and comforted. Best seller!
Perfect for assisting weakened reactive skins looking for youth and radiance. Apply 1-2 pumps to face and throat morning and/or evening

Pure C + BHA- Pure and potent. Protect your skin from free radical damage using the most powerful antioxidant benefit of fresh chirally corrected Vitamin C. This pure L’Ascorbic Acid with encapsulated BHA offers daily exfoliation and antioxidant benefits second to none. Radiance plus!
Perfect for all skins in fact an absolute daily must.

Mix half a scoop into your choice of O Cosmedics serum or treatment hydrator. Apply to face and throat daily.

YOUTH ACTIVATING OIL BALM

YES. YES AND JUST YES!!!!! Another fave. This amazing hydrating balm works like magic. I apply this every night after cleansing and applying the ‘Pure age serum”

The youth activating oil balm soaks into my skin over night and repairs it from deep down. I wake feel fresh and hydrated. Awesome if your skin is on the dryer side like mine and after a little more comfort!!

Youth Activating Oil-Balm is a corrective treatment serum rich in vitamins and fatty acids. The L22 restores the skin’s lipid composition to that of a healthy 22 year old while the Lakesis increases the production of Klotho (a youth protein)in the fibroblast and reactivates cellular detoxification. Heavenly!
Perfect for dry dehydrated aging skins looking for extra comfort and nourishment.

GENTLE ANTIOXIDANT CLEANSER

An absolute essential to compliment the O products that your using. This cleanser is perfect to use on a morning to freshen the skin and on an evening to remove your daily make-up.

A gentle daily facial cleanser strengthened with powerful antioxidants. Suitable for all skin types including reactive and rosacea skins post peel laser and surgery cleansing. Fortified with anti-pollutant boosters that trap and remove dirt and excess sebum. V8 Peptide Complex®
leaves the skin super hydrated and refreshed. A daily must have!
Perfect for all skin types including the most compromised

EYE CORRECT

I recently asked these guys the question, “what can I use to reduce the darker circles under my eyes” This has all come about after having a babe that didn’t like sleeping for the best part of two years #mumlyf. Their response was this little miracle in a bottle. I used the eye correct for 3 days and emailed O back, “umm is this meant to work so fast” Their response, “Yes, It just means its loving you right back”

Eye Correct’s unique patented luminescent effect lightens and smoothes the delicate eye area whilst powerful moisturisers and a Tetrapeptide help to reduce puffy eyes reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles boost firmness and elasticity. You gotta love that!
Perfect for all skins looking for wrinkle free youthful eyes.

Spring has most certainly sprung where my wardrobe is concerned and now I am just waiting for the Tassie warmth to roll on in. (lets be honest, I could be waiting a while)

I am absolutely head over heels with this GORGEOUS Steele label dress from @saylorandsaige. The beautiful cherry primrose print which is a Steele exclusive is so feminine and fresh.

Q&A WITH MOOGOO SKINCARE

I RECENTLY CAUGHT UP WITH THE BEAUTIFUL TEAM @MOOGOOSKINCARE AND @DUSTYGIRLSMAKEUP TO TALK ALL THINGS, BLOGGING, BUSINESS AND WHY I LOVE THEIR ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS SO MUCH!!!

THANKS FOR THE CHAT AND KIND WORDS GUYS………

CHECK IT ALL OUT BELOW.

BROGAN KATE XX

Q And A With Brogan Kate

 

Brogan Kate is a beautiful, talented, young Australian woman whose sense of style and creativity together with her social media savvy and passion have shaped her into the successful business owner of Brogan Kate Intimates that she is today.  The team at MooGoo Skincare and Dusty Girls love her effortlessly chic style, and always enjoy working with her. We caught up with Brogan recently for a quick Q & A.

1. You began blogging as a creative outlet a few years ago.  How did you turn that into the successful business it is today? 

As you mentioned, blogging started as an outlet for me to throw some creative inspo around, over the years it has grown in to so much more than I ever could have imagined.

My Initial blogs were “inspo pics” pulled from Pinterest, and then I started to snap my own style. It’s funny, as I never really thought that would interest people, but I think being an “everyday’ style chick with nothing too fancy seems to be relatable, and people like that.

I have been lucky enough to work with some great brands and stores, like MooGoo and Dusty Girls. I think we all help each other succeed, and that’s what I love about social media, it connects people and allows you to help complete strangers achieve great things.

Maybe the key to success is “keeping it real” in a world that is constantly challenging that.

 2. What part of your work do you enjoy the most?

That’s a hard one, I love meeting new people and developing on-going relationships. I love dressing up and styling, if I can inspire a few people along the way then that’s pretty rewarding.

Designing my intimates range is always fun and super cool, seeing gorgeous gals wearing and enjoying something that you created is always amazing.

3. How would you describe your style?

On trend, casual with a hint of boho.

Im a jeans and T-shirt girl at heart.

Brogan Kate & MooGoo & Dusty Girls

4. Yes, and your makeup reflects that style.  It’s very fresh and natural looking!  We know you use MooGoo and Dusty Girls products – can you tell us how they fit into your skincare and makeup routine and why natural products are important to you?

I swear by these two brands, 3+ years of using them both and my skin has never looked healthier. I preach these two brands to all my family and friends and have converted them all!! Haha.

Every night I cleanse with my Oil Cleanser and then apply the Evening Primrose Oil (I love this product) It is amazing at re-hydrating my skin, especially in the cool, dry winter months.

Every morning I use either the Soothing MSM Cream or Brightening Cream, I alternate them each day. Both of these are a great base for my Dusty Girls Mineral Foundation Powder. I then layer my cheeks with the Bronzer and Blusher to create a sun-kissed look. On the lips, it’s always Maca Nude with the clear Mineral Lip Gloss on top. (I am always getting asked what lippy i’m wearing) such a great everyday colour.

I love using the natural products on myself and especially my son Otis. It’s the only option. If you read the ingredients on some of the products out there and actually research what they are made up of, people would be shocked, it is quite confronting.

I think in this day and age, natural is the only “safe” option.

5. Which one of those products can you not leave home without?

I always have 2 or 3 of the Cow Lick Lip Balms in my car or my purse etc, this is my must have. It is hydrating and not addictive like other lip balms. Swear by it.

The other day I literally made a trip out just to buy another as I could not find one anywhere hahaha that says something, I cannot live without this one!!

6. You post amazing Instagram pics, and lots of people follow you for fashion inspiration!  Who are the Instagrammers or bloggers that inspire and motivate you?

Ohhhh there are so many amazing accounts, I do love @miss_gunner she’s so cool, has amazing style and is a super nice chick! I always find new accounts that I crush on though!

MUM AND ME

 

 

Mothers day was last Sunday I know but as a little extra appreciation post to my gorgeous Mum I wanted to do a blog feature. What better way to get some snaps with my fave lady than when we are twinning in our @EOSFOOTWEAR boots.

Mum loves these boots and for good reason, they are like ugg boots to wear, never have I worn a more comfy pair of shoes and thanks to her I’m a convert. We are both wearing the neutral taupe colour which seems to work with just about anything and everything.

This lady though……….. She’s the greatest woman I know. A few words that come to mind when I think of mum are selfless, beautiful, loving, generous and supportive.

In my first year of becoming a mother my appreciation for her has grown even more so (if thats possible). I am so grateful to have someone like her in my life. She knows me so well and reads me like a book even when I don’t speak words to sum up how I might be feeling, she just knows.

Although she’s my mum ( I know this might sound cliche) BUT she’s actually more like a best friend. (The last photo sums up our relationship best I think) We laugh SO much, not just mum and I but the entire family hahhaha, Its a mad house when we are all together.

I feel so truly blessed to have her as my role model, to learn and grow from, to look up to and to try my hardest to be even half the mother to my little man Otis and she is to her three girls. You are one of a kind my beautiful mother and I am so lucky to share this life with you. THANK YOU.

( Dad, you should have had some matching boots and jumped in this shoot also hahha you are simply amazing as well)
