Product Review: Aesop Tea Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant

Late last year something horrible happened. I ran out of exfoliant!

Ok maybe a little dramatic. But I did run out of my much loved Daily Microfoliant. I was going to buy another one, but a friend had told me that I really should give Aesop’s Tea Tree Left Exfoliant a go.

And I’m very glad she did! It’s amazing!

Firstly what I love about it is that it’s a mix of crushed botanicals so more of a naturally based product. Plus it’s designed to buff the skin as opposed to use any acids etc to removed dead skin layers.

It’s also designed to be used with your cleanser. I really like this fact because it takes your cleanser to the next level, but it also doesn't matter what cleanser you use it with.

When you look at the bottle it looks really tiny, but I've had mine for about 4 months now and I still have about ¾ left. Not badgiven it’s only $39 from Aesop.

Highly recommend!

Lucky Number 13

It’s that time already. I really can’t believe another year has come and gone. I think the older I get the fast time moves along, which is quite scary.

2013. I’m not sure what it will bring yet but I have a good feeling since 13 is my lucky number.

Recently I have been going through quite a few changes and life has been a bit out of control (hence the lack of blogging).

Work has been crazy. My boss left for maternity leave. Work also went through a re-structure and we are currently in the middle of a transition period (which has left me doing the work of 2 people).

I am now a single lady. My boyfriend of 2.5 years and I decided to call it quits late last year. It was a really hard decision that we both made, and long term it’s for the best.

But not all is bad.

I joined an amazing gym called Elixr and started seeing a Nutritionist to really just take my health and fitness to the next level and I’m already seeing some massive changes in myself after a few short months.

I have finally found my passion in life and I’m going back to study this year. I’m study Nutritional Medicine. I’m so excited and really pumped to study and learn more about something that I’m really passionate about. I’m also doing it all online, so I will be working full time! It’s going to be challenging but it’s something that I really want so I’m willing to put in the work.

In terms of what 2013 has in store for me? Well I’m not really sure, and I kind of like that. I haven’t made any big new year’s resolutions. I just want this year to be happier and healthier then the last :)

I do have a few small goals. One is I would like to fully be able to do the splits. I’m close but not close enough. I really want to get back to blogging. I have been really slack in the past few months and I actually really miss it, so I promise more regular posts will be updated. And finally I really want to increase my health and fitness. I’ve already made good process, but I would love to take it one step further.

Lets hope I'm doing this before the end of the year!

I hope you all had a great Holiday Season and 2013 is treating you well!
