Spring time soaps!

I have had a creative week! New soap and the house smells gorgeous. One very special soap is made from oils fro my jasmine which is blossoming right now, the whole backyard has the most beautiful scent. I gathered the blossoms and macerated them in olive oil for 3 weeks, so all the goodness and fragrance went into the oil, then made the most lovely soap out of it. Very simple, just a plain bar, but full of the most amazing ingredients like cream and vitamin E and Shea butter.

Another gorgeous soap I just made is my Morning Grapefruit bar. This is a wake-you-up soap and great for men or women, grapefruit is a scent that is loved by all.

And lastly, my rose topped soap. This is a very special absolutely lovely soap either as something gorgeous for yourself, or as a gift for someone you love. A beautiful soap filled with fresh cream and olive oil, and topped with sweet dried rosebuds.

Check put my website for these gorgeous soaps and more.

Spring ios in the air so there will be many more delightful scented soaps to come!

Horrible shopping today which I had to do because I needed new thongs and I also needed a new bathing suit (NOT a thong). In fact, the bathing suit was a daunting task; I have a couple of problem areas.

What I was really looking for was one of these racy Victorian numbers but for some reason none of the stores had them in stock.
Maybe tomorrow or next week or next year for the bather shopping!

Jasmine is in the Air!

The Jasmine in the garden is so beautiful and the scent coming from it is heavenly.
So I have decided to pick some blossoms and macerate them in a delicate sweet Almond oil.
Then when the beautiful aroma has permeated the oil, I am going to make a gorgeous body scrub.
I will keep you posted when it is made and on the Dreamskin website.

Lash and Brow serum works really well!

I am getting fantastic reviews for my Brow and Lash serum. I have got quite a few from Asian ladies telling me they have curl in their lashes for the first time ever. So happy with it.

Want longer lashes and thicker brows? For all of you who are follicle challenged, you will love my new product! Lash and brow enhancer that really works. Since using it for about 5 weeks, my lashes which were pitiable  now hit my glasses and the reviews are fabulous!

Here are a few;

Wow! after only 3 weeks I can see a difference in my brows and lashes.

This stuff is great, I bought it for my son's girlfriend also and she is seeing results too.

Thanks for awesome products.

I have been using the Brow and Lash Serum for just about a month and there is a definite thickening and darkening of my eyebrows and some growth of my upper lashes. I'm so delighted that at the age of 65, I might be getting the "Brooke Shields" brows I used to have back .

I'll be trying more of your products.

Thank you,


This stuff really works!! I had completely lost the outter half of my left brow...age, I guess. Yesterday, after about 8 weeks of use, I actually had to do some plucking at the outside edge of my brow!!! Not only do I have full brows again, my lashes are longer as well. Some mornings I forget that I have brows again and start to pencil in...and then quickly realize it's not necessary.
And unlike Latisse at $150.00, my Lash and Brow serum is only $29.95.
Try it and you will love the results!

Pomegranate oil is amazing!

Hi to all, I have had the most amazing comments about my Pomegranate oil, it really is a miracle. If you have skin problems like acne, rosacea, or any irritation, you really should try it and see what fantastic results you get. I have added some emails I have received from customers about this great product and they are genuine.

Dear Lorin

I wanted to write and thank you for the two bottles of Pomegranate oil that you sent. I also must tell you how amazing it is and how much I love what it is doing to my skin. I had really bad rosacia during and after my last pregnancy. It took years for the red rash and "acne" to go away and left me with a lot of red pigmentation and broken capillaries. Now that I am in my late 50's I also have the issue of lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage. Since using the pomegranate oil twice daily for the past 2 weeks I can easily see a more even skin tone, less redness, smoother and younger looking skin with lines and wrinkles much less obvious and no sign of dryness. My skin has a fresh glow too and I am so thrilled with the results!!! What an amazing product! I don't need to apply so much makeup to conceal my skin flaws. I am telling all my friends just how good this oil is.

Thank you Lorin for selling such a great product. I will keep you posted on further improvements.

I do hope things settle down for you with your mum.

Kind regards


Hi Lorin, That pomegranate oil has cleared my daughter’s skin like you wouldn’t believe!

I am so happy with it!

See you soon,


And for now until next Sunday, if you order a bottle of Pomegranate oil, I will send you a 10ml sample of my great new face cream with Sea Kelp Bioferment. SKB is the magic ingredient in Crème de La Mer, which is about $300.00 for a 30ml jar.

I read this article on :The Age" website.

It makes me really happy to tell you that I have never and never will use Bismuth in my makeup.

Mineral foundation - make-up often advertised as being a natural alternative to other applications - contains many of the same chemicals as liquid and powder options, consumer group Choice says.

Choice tested 14 mineral foundations and found 10 contained bismuth oxychloride, which is a by-product of lead, tin and copper refining.

There were 21 cases of skin irritation and 11 cases of eye irritation during the trial, its report says.

"Mineral foundations are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame right now - despite having been around since the 1970s - and are marketed as being better for the skin than regular foundations," Choice spokeswoman Elise Davidson said in a statement on Thursday.

"But really, they're just an alternative to liquid or powder foundation, with most of the mineral foundations containing the same sort of ingredients as any other make-up base.

"Most are certainly not any more natural or pure than the alternatives."

                                                       Mine are!

What a day!

What a huge storm it was that hit Perth yesterday!
It knocked our lovely tree down.
This was a beautiful Chinese Elm that all the little birds used to take sanctuary from the bigger predatory birds. So sad that it is gone.

The cutest little coffee shop and knitting too!.......

I took my Mum to the doctor the other day and I was starving so we called into a little place in Grantham Street in Wembley called Woolly Latte's.

What a perfect little place!

Great food

                                I had the Bruschetta and my Mum had a salad and the food was scrumptious.

My new eye Gel colours and I am giving some of them away

Watch this blog! I have lots of new Gel eye colours coming and I will be giving some away in the very near future!

These are awesome!

Free recipe..Lavender bath soak

Who doesn't love a nice warm bath filled with beautiful lavender soak?

Here is a gorgeous recipe to pamper yourself and relax after a hard day.....


1 cup milk

5 tablespoons baking soda

1-2 tablespoons honey

5 drops lavender essential oil

handful lavender leaves and flowers (optional)

Place the milk in a bowl. Add the baking soda and stir to combine. Add the honey and stir to dissolve.

Add the essential oil last and mix. Some people don't like herbs and flowers floating around the tub so these are optional.

Let the mixture sit for a minute or two for the lavender scent to permeate the mixture, then add to a nice warm bath. Grab a glass of wine, a magazine, lock the door, some music to drown out the world helps, and relax!

This recipe is enough for a normal-sized tub. You can double it for a larger spa-type bath tub but be careful not to add more essential oils. Five drops is enough for just about any size bath.

My new Pomegranate Facial oil

I love my new facial oil. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now, and a lot of the sun damage that I have sustained from covering myself in baby oil and laying in the sun on Scarborough Beach for hours (shudder) is improving like I cannot believe. Pomegranate oil is going to prove to be the very best thing in skin care. I have included some info I found

What makes Pomegranate Seed Oil so beneficial? First, it is high in antioxidants (such as polyphenol) which fight free radicals and promote skin regeneration.

It is also high in lipids, including the rare Pucinic Acid, which help heal inflammation and reduce swelling.

It has been found to nourish and moisturize the skin, improving elasticity, reducing wrinkles and preventing aging. It has also been shown to help sunburned and ultraviolet damaged skin.

Evidence suggests that its calming and healing properties may aid treatment of numerous skin problems, including dry, irritated sensitive skin, and perhaps even eczema and psoriasis.

Is there any wonder that high end cosmetic and skincare product designers are including Pomegranate Oil in their anti-aging creams and lotions?

This really is a product you want to try, please have a look at it, 100% organic and gorgeous

Amazing Hair Treatments

At last, a hair treatment that actually stops hair falling out!!!

This is truly amazing. My hairdresser was despairing of my hair, and I have been hating it all my life.

I really was concerned that it would all fall out.

After lots of researching, I have made what I think is the most incredible product on the planet for hair loss.

And it doesn't cost a million dollars!

My hair has stopped falling out since I have been using it (3 weeks twice a week) and the bathroom is no longer covered in hair, my velcro rollers come out without being covered in my hair and it is all shiny and I am really loving it!

Honestly, if you have hair that is shedding or your locks just need a good overhaul, I promise you will love this product!

You can find it on my site and you will be singing "Oh Happy Day" after you have used it for a while!
