AUTUMN DISCOVERY | Nude By Nature

Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. Certainly in Adelaide, the Autumn season really shows. The streets are lined with flecks of gold, auburn and brown leaves of the beautiful deciduous trees. The sunsets take on a more burnt orange hue, and people start wearing clothing to match. Seasonal makeup is definitely a thing, which is why I’m feeling the new Autumn Discovery Kit from Nude By Nature. In this post I’ll share all the beautiful items that comes in this specially curated, and completely cruelty-free kit, and my personal faves I found in it!

BATH & UNWIND

It don’t matter if it’s 10 or 40 degrees outside, I enjoy a good bath all year-round. And if you’re like me and fancy yourself a bit of a bath connoisseur, you’d always be looking for the next best product that will take your experience to the next level, whether it’d be upping the fun factor or slowing it down for some blissful relaxation. As part of my quest to find the best bath products, I’m sharing some of my latest obsessions in this post covering bubble bath, bath salts and bath milks.

BODY FAVOURITES BORN IN SIBERIA: NATURA SIBERICA

Natura Siberica is a brand that has featured on my blog multiple times, mostly because I am drawn to their products that contain unusual ingredients sourced from unique and largely unblemished parts of Siberia and Russia. Although you can find a product for literally any aspect of your beauty routine under the Natura Siberica brand umbrella (they have 12 different collections!), their body products are what pull me in time and time again. After being an admirer of the brand for so long, I am so honoured and excited to be a part of their NS Crew program, so this post will help me in my initiation by talking about three of my most favourite Natura Siberica products that keep my body in top shape all year round. At the end of the post, you may just find special offer you can take advantage of too – so keep on reading!

THE UNORTHODOX CLEANSER EDIT

Cleansing my face is one of my favourite times of the day. There is nothing like ridding your face of daily pollution, dirt and impurities at the end of a long day and it’s one of my top rituals in my beauty routine. True to my nature, I like to experiment with skincare, especially with cleansers. I love discovering new formulations and ingredients, and cleansers that come in a different form or have different ingredients to the usual cleanser we are all familiar with.  Through my experimentation, I’ve been using some products that either made me scratch my head a little before using, or have a list of ingredients that I found unique and interesting. This post will explore four ‘cleansers’ that give a modern approach to cleaning our skin.

A real-life Dad reviews the LUSH Father’s Day range

It’s time for another LUSH Cosmetics limited edition range, and this time we welcome the LUSH Father’s Day collection. I thought it would be insightful to get a realistic view and opinion of the range so that if you’re thinking of purchasing something for your father you can be more confident in your choices (and so you can stop asking your Mum for gift inspiration). I enjoy bringing my family into the mix here on The Beauty & the Geek. My partner Sam has been a guest reviewer on my blog before (read his ideas on the men’s Bellobox here), but it’s time for me to introduce my Dad to the blogosphere. I’ve asked him to trial and review the LUSH Father’s Day range, a challenge he graciously (and very surprisingly) accepted.
