I HAD "BOTOX" INJECTIONS... But not for the reason you think || Rivet Licker

"BOTOX" is just one of the brand names of purified Botulinum Toxin-A, a Schedule 4 [Rx only AUS] drug used primarily for medical and cosmetic purposes, to paralyze specific muscles and treat pain or improve the look of skin wrinkles.

I say "BOTOX", because the name is synonymous. I opted for a generic brand called Dysport, which is the same molecule, but about 70% cheaper. Safe to say, enough time has passed for me to notice its effects, so here is my experience!

Summer Holiday Skin || Antipodes Skincare Edit || Rivet Licker

Antipodes is a good friend here at Rivet Licker. The natural and effective beauty products from the New Zealand brand have been keeping my skin soft and smooth for just over two years.

Being an Aussie, the festive holidays fall in summer. I was offered the opportunity to trial and create my own edit of Antipodes products to keep my skin in top notch this summer.

BRITEPLEX Bond Multiplying Treatment || Science Behind Bleaching Hair || #RivetReview

How do you get hair from dark brown to blonde without frying it? It's an age old question. Even professional hairdressers have ruined my hair during the bleaching process. Now days, many more brunettes have gone blonde thanks to a protective additive that can minimize damage during the process of lifting 8-10+ levels of colour.

I have been using Brite Organix to bleach and colour my hair for a while now, but I knew that my hair was suffering from all that processing. I've wanted to jump onto the Plex bandwagon, but when BRITE came out with BRITEPLEX, I knew I had to have it.
