More opinions from me (lucky you). This time it’s product reviews of everything from wax strips (ouch) to software.

Benefit They’re Real! mascara

There’s been lots of hype over this mascara, which the Goodiebox dudes tagged as a “cult classic” on the info card that came with this month’s box. According to the info, ithas “all the benefits; it lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts…

Goodiebox, January unboxing

This month’s theme was “Head Over Heels”, and the first GoodieBox offering for the year didn’t really excite me too much. It seems the whole hair removal thing is an ongoing theme and there wasn’t a lot else of interest…

If you’re online, you need protection

While it certainly has its good points, there is no denying the fact that the internet is becoming more of a security minefield every day. Many years ago, when I bought my first computer and discovered the joys of the…

I’m a fan of Bio Oil, and more recently DermaOil, so I was keen to try this NZ-made natural oil. The packaging says it’s good for scars, stretch marks and even heat-damaged hair. I found a few drops smoothed out…

Goodiebox, December unboxing

The December theme was “Sealed With A Bow”, which annoyed me a little because a bow is tied rather than sealed. However, that’s just the sub-editor in me coming out. But I digress: this time around we got a very…

Hydrodol

According to the info supplied by GoodieBox and the makers of these pills, these little capsules will make sure your night out is a great one. No, they don’t ensure you have no stray pimples, do away with the need…
