Lush Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb, $5.95
“This one starts off in a whirl of madness! It fizzes, it pops, it spins and explodes with a swirl of colour, foam, glitter and confetti! Leaving you with an orange coloured bath, blanketed with white foam, swirled with orange and glitter, this is a bath for revitalising more than relaxing. Scented with citrus oils, such as bergamot and lemon, it smells fabulous, and will make you feel alive, even after the toughest day. It's actually a good choice if you are having a bath before a night out.” -Chicklet
“First of all the scent is not too overwhelming, it is a light fragrance which smells quite good. I love the way it feels on my skin - it feels quite light for a full body moisturiser and it absorbs quickly. The rosehip, jojoba and aloe makes my skin look healthy and vibrant whilst feeling soft all over. I enjoy these ingredient so much I also bought a rosehip oil for my face.” - Vanessa430
Nourish Naturals Dry Skin Lotion, $19.95 (700mL)
“You can feel straight away that this lotion is made from quality and natural ingredients. The smooth texture of the lotion is easy to spread and a little bit of lotion does cover quite a lot of skin. The product did not leave a film, it did not leave my skin feeling sticky or greasy, but instead it absorbed right into my skin leaving it feeling soft and hydrated.” - Elunia
Sukin Hydrating Body Lotion, $19.95 (500mL)
“This moisturiser is so delicious, I love that it is vegan and the smell is to die for. I switched to this moisturiser as I was growing concerned with the amount of chemicals I was using in my other body lotion (I'm VERY liberal with my lotion usage!). It hydrates your body well, leaves a pleasant scent and is great for those with skin that isn’t too dry.” -Erin101
“It’s a thick lotion but soaks into your skin fairly fast. The smell is amazing and your skin feels revitalised instantly. I'm also finding it has great long-term effects, because my skin feels moisturised from one application for over 48 hours. Currently I use this every night before bed and I absolutely love it, I’ve even bought a second bottle so I won't have to worry in case it’s sold out again.” -PrincessXena
“I've been using this for many years and it is still the best moisturiser I have used. It is great in winter and just as fantastic in summer. In summer, it doesn't give you that wet, greasy feeling that some moisturisers give you. No wonder it won the "Glosscars". Easily the best I've used.” - frogchick73
Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion - Cocoa Glow, $11.57 (750mL)
“If the awesome caramel smell of this doesn't inspire you to use this product, then I don't know what will. I found that it soaks in really well without a greasy after feel, and the fragrance - wow! I will keep buying this product on the fragrance alone.” -Gogrl600
“I usually love Garnier products and the 7-days moisturiser has not disappointed. The aloe vera variant has a nice, neutral fragrance (there are others in the range I've tried too that are all fruity or quite sweet smelling). It rubs in well and when you've got particularly dry skin, you really notice a difference from using it every day. The usual retail price is also a bargain and this moisturiser is now a permanent resident in my bathroom cupboard.” -Ange888
As soon as I tried this product I went back to work and bought it. It’s amazing, it exfoliates the skin better than anything else I've tried and it actually does heat up. It's one of those products that wows me every time I use it. A little goes a long way too.” -Hellonickers
Natio Wellness Body Scrub, $18.95
“You can smell the delicious apricot scent as soon as you open the jar. Yummy! I've been using this on my legs mostly, to help avoid ingrown hairs and it seems to be doing a good job at that. My skin feels really soft after using it, and I just love the lingering scent.” -Votrebelle
“Unlike others, this scrub is easy to get out of the container (doesn't get stuck under my nails), provides the right amount of exfoliation and leaves my skin silky smooth! The smell is also divine! I use this right before shaving my legs and putting the shave gel on. I've also used it as a shave gel when I've ran out and have found that it does an awesome job and prevents the razor from irritating my skin!” -Simone.x
Manicare Cellulite Bristle Brush, $16.99
“This is a great brush and in my opinion a superior product to any 'cellulite cream'. You brush the skin twice a day for five minutes. Using the brush on dry skin, sweep with long strokes towards the heart, starting from the feet and working upwards. It doesn't hurt (and I have super sensitive skin) it just leaves your skin tingly and a touch pink, which goes away quickly. My skin is definitely much smoother after using this, and I have more energy - an unexpected bonus! This is now a mainstay of my beauty routine. Apparently the French swear by it, and I can see why. Definitely recommend.” - Edlie
“This deodorant feels fresh and dry when it’s applied. It keeps me dry and odour free all day. The fragrance is pleasant and long lasting, but it won't overpower your perfume. Best of all, it doesn't leave annoying white marks on your outfit as you get dressed. True to its claim. This is an effective deodorant.” -JaneyPooh
Dove Invisible Dry Roll, $4.20
“It is moisturising under the arms with no irritation. True to the name, while it's a white liquid, it dries clear with no white marks. The packaging is a nice sturdy soft-touch plastic that stands ball end down so you don't have to shake it before use. I felt fresh all day and couldn't stop smelling my pits. Good work Dove. This one's a keeper.” -Popss
“My weight rapidly goes up and down and has so over the last three years, leaving me with plenty of stretch marks to show for it. I have always struggled with them, even from a very young age due to weight variance, so the fact that this product worked for me has really boosted my confidence. After two days I noticed a difference already! It doesn't completely make them disappear, but they are significantly lighter. I love the smell of all of Palmer's products and they always leave my skin feeling moisturised and smooth. This product is amazing and I would definitely recommend it.” - PandaMonium7789
Waxaway Salon Wax , $15.70
“I really love this wax because you don't need to use wax strips with it. There's no mess and it gets the shortest tiniest little hairs. This formula doesn't irritate my skin and I can use it around my bikini area. It's a really great wax!”- Barbsbeauty1
Schick Exacta 2 Women, $6.99 (10 pack)
“I have about four packets of these sitting in my bathroom. I've been using them since I first learnt how to shave and I just love them. The ones I get are a cute pink shade, and have a gel strip to help with moisture and comfort. It gives me a nice close, clean shave and they are so inexpensive. It's in the list of my 'things I always grab from the supermarket'.” -Votrebelle
Bump eRaiser Medi Paste, $16.75
“This paste is amazing! Once I started using it - the results were startling! It comes in a squeeze tube and it's quite a solid formula, which also means that a little goes a long way. One tube lasted me about a year! Quite good value for money too, considering that it's effective. It has instructions on how often you should use it - just follow them, and it will make a difference! This cleared up old ingrown hairs and prevented new ones from cropping up. Can't recommend this enough!” -Temporary Princess
“These disposables come in fun colours and yummy scents. They're something a bit different from your everyday razor, but also extremely effective. I love the entire Venus range as the products give great results, while still being gentle, and these are no exception. I often find I get bad shaving cuts from other razors but these do the job efficiently without any nicks to the skin. Some disposables aren't very effective and lose sharpness within one use, but these have lasted me several uses. They also leave my legs gloriously smooth with no irritation. Will definitely get these again.” -Jamnz
“I love this product and a small amount goes a long way, so it's worth the money. It smells great and applies easily. It lathers up well, so it makes for a smooth shave. It leaves your skin feeling so soft and hydrated afterwards too.” -Kadasimmons
Dove Beauty Cream Bar, $4.49 (2x100g pack)
“This bar works wonders for my sensitive skin. It makes it feel so soft, cleansed and healthy. It also leaves it smelling amazing and looking smooth and silky. I always have a bar of this moisturising soap lying in my shower because it is really well priced and makes my skin feel so amazing.” -beautylover_23
QV Gentle Wash, $18.15 (500mL)
“Gentle and hydrating, I couldn't recommend this cleanser enough. It doesn't strip my skin of oil, it has a lovely creamy texture, and it foams up nicely in the shower. I would recommend this to anyone, but particularly to people with sensitive/dry skin or dermatitis. I've been using QV products to treat my eczema since I was a child and they are great value for money and do what they say they will!” -Sisalo
“This lightly scented body wash lathers very well, so you only need a small amount. It leaves my skin feeling soft and silky. I often have a problem with itchy skin and the colloidal oatmeal in this wash really helps to soothe the itchiness and irritation.” -Flicky26
“I can't say enough about how much I love this gentle soap. I feel no dryness on my skin when I use it consistently and you can tell it's very moisturising by the way it kinda melts into your skin when you lather up.” -Natz
“I am absolutely in love with this body wash! It has the perfect smell and gives just the right amount of exfoliation, while at the same time it doesn't dry the skin out. I would recommend it for people with any skin type because it’s super gentle! I finally found a body wash that is just right for my skin!” -MakeupMuffin
“I rarely have time to use a body lotion or moisturiser after showering, or I just forget! I love that I can use this in the shower AND that for me, my skin is left beautifully soft after I use it. I have bought several bottles in the range and will continue to buy.” -amandaq
Dove Summer Glow Gradual Self Tan Body Lotion, $17.89 (700mL)
“This is one of my favourite tanners and I purchase it on a regular basis. I find it is easy to apply, goes on smoothly and doesn't take long to dry. The fragrance is fine, unlike some other products and it gives an even colour. No orange glow either! The price is reasonable too and much more affordable than many others on the market.” -sylvester1
“The scent is there, but fortunately it's mild and not overpowering compared to most other fake tanners. The result was natural, not orangey and streak free, which I was very impressed with. This lasted a good 7-10 days on my skin which I made sure to moisturise daily to prolong the results. It faded slowly and naturally. I would most definitely purchase this again as it ticks all boxes when it comes to affordability, ease of use and good results.” - beautylicious
Le Tan Fast Tan Foaming Mousse, $13.49
“I used the bronze and it worked brilliantly. I have fair skin and it looked pretty natural. I used the Le Tan Mitt and the tan didn't have any streaks. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has fair skin and is not really used to using fake tan.” -sara588
“I have been using Bondi Sands for around two years now and I have not yet been disappointed. It's green based so you get a lovely olive-toned tan instead of something orange! It applies so easily along with the use of the tanning mitt and dries quite quickly also. It’s only $20 and the size of the bottle is awesome, it can last months, depending on how regularly you use it!” -courtney128
“I love this sunscreen so much, it rubs in super fast and is not sticky or greasy. It’s lightweight but does an effective job against protecting the skin from UVA and UVB rays. I have not got burnt since using it and it is a pleasure to use, as it feels nice on the skin and sand doesn't stick to me like it usually does with other sunscreens. I love the smell of this product and my boyfriend has also commented on how nice it smells which is a bonus.” - Beautybabe140194
“This is such a wonderful product that I always have around the house for unexpected sunburns. Banana Boat is a brand my family has trusted and used for many years. This gel soothes and melts into the skin, rehydrating it and cooling instantly. I love it. The smell is beautiful too.” -Margaret 322
Vicks VapoDrops, $3.99 (30 pack)
“I have bought and used these for as long as I can remember. Whenever the flu season or a runny/blocked nose hits, these are a must have! The strong taste is effective at unblocking the nostrils and numbing and soothing a sandpaper-like throat. You only need to take a few a day as once you've finished each one, the effects last for a few hours. Cheap to buy and full of all that good stuff you want when you're feeling under the weather.” -Candyfairy
Colgate Optic White, $7.99
“You do see a difference and it leaves my mouth feeling fresher and cleaner than other toothpastes on the market. Use this if you are after whiter, brighter teeth!” -Katherine19
Oral-B Pro-Health, $4.99
“This is one of my regular toothpastes. It's a perfect daily toothpaste. Has a good taste, fine texture, leaves mouth feeling fresh and tasty, cleans well, only need a pea sized amount so the large tube, which is also good, lasts for ages. I like the screw top lid because it seals well so you don't get any yucky gunky drying-out toothpaste at the opening of the tube. Very reasonably priced, excellent value for money. There is not one thing I would change about this toothpaste.” -Rosey Posey
