I am a grandma from Tasmania, Australia and I love to research and try products for my family and myself that are safer and more natural than those commonly found on the shelves of our shops. I have been supporting companies that do not test products or ingredients on animals for many years and systematically making changes to all areas of my life. My special interest is to find products that fit my high ideals, produce great results but do not break the budget. IHerb offers such a fantastic range and prices are amazing. I hope you enjoy reading my reviews.

I have tried many cleansers and most cause a red blotchy rash that results in my skin peeling due to stripping my skin. I saw a dermatologist for some time and was advised to use only very gentle cleansers. The 1000 Roses Cleansing Foam removes my makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth. A lovely product.

I am using these in the morning and they definately smooth out the lines under my eyes. They are very wet and I smooth the extra serum onto my face. I haven't worked out yet how long the smoothing lasts for but it would be a few hours. There is a bit of a Cinderella effect I think. Don't leave it too long to check if you are out at an important date - you may need to touch up. The instructions say to leave on clean skin for 20 minutes but I have put them on for just a few minutes - over my mineral makeup - and the smoothing effect happens but is not as effective as the first time. I then touch up my makeup around the edges of where the patch was with a minimal amount of makeup and you are good to go. I am 62 and have very deep wrinkles but I am sure this would be excellent for someone with just fine lines.

I haven't used a toner for many years but recently watched a Youtube video with a very famous makeup artist working on a 50+ model. He said that toner is very important for everyone to use as it restores the skin's acid mantle after using your cleanser and this gives your skin better opportunity to absorb your serum and moisturiser. He recommended Witch Hazel and Calendular based products as long as they did not contain alcohol. The Thayers Witch Hazel is very gently and I am loving using it. I am always attracted to products with a Rose fragrance and this one is very pleasant. A real treat to use.
This product is very dry. I could not get it to be visible at all on my lashes and in fact it hardly showed when I swiped it on my hand. I love these small mascaras for the bottom lashes and the corners but not this one.

I have horrible dry feet and I hate touching them. I am keeping this wonderful salve beside my bed and I rub it around the edge of my heels straight from the tin as I get into bed at night. Perfect.

Good product. Pleasant way to settle a pregnant tummy.
I see an obvious difference when I use this over my other moisturisers. It keeps my skin plumped, soft and feeling almost moist all day.
I bought a trial pack of this brand and I love it. This Facial Scrub is my top pick along with the Cleansing Gel. Beautiful products that leave my skin clean and glowing without any stripping.

Grab this as soon as you see it is in stock or you will miss out. It is very popular because it is very good.

My grandchildren love these Star Wars Bandaids. The usual Bandaid quality is there with a variety of shapes and designs to treat every "booboo".
