I recently found out about this brand via a beauty website. I was looking to find new NZ skincare ranges that I hadn't heard of, when I came across this website. They use "pure and natural" ingredients in their products and do not test on animals. They also donate 10% of the profit to charitable organisations which makes them one of the most generous donors of any skincare brand worldwide. 

"180ml 6.08 fl oz. Unisex, non drying, soap free, 100% biodegradable, won't sting your eyes and gently removes make up and impurities from all types of skin including sensitive. Leaves your skin feeling soft, revitalised and radiant.

Enriched with premium:
New Zealand lace bark - soothing, calming and protecting.
Organic cucumber - cooling, hydrating and toning.
Lemon fruit - softens, cleanses and brightens."

I can honestly say that this facial cleanser is amazing. It left my skin feeling really soft and fresh. It didn't make my skin feel tight like some cleansers do. It has a lovely clean, citrus scent to it, which it is not too overpowering which I like.
The texture is really nice. It is very smooth and applies well to the skin. It lathers nicely too.

I would definitely recommend this facial wash to everyone as it "benefits all skin types".

If you would like to try out the Sávar range for yourself, check out their products on

(DISCLAIMER: Even though I received this product for free, it does not change my opinion on the product whatsoever. I am 100% honest as to what think about it.)

Jeffrey Campbell litas seem to be the ultimate shoe of a blogger. Lita's have been seen all over runways throughout the seasons as these shoes are very versatile and never seem to go out of fashion. There are even Tumblr pages dedicated to the unusual but very stylish shoe, and I can see why... They are amazing! I personally do not own a pair but I have decided that as soon as I get a job, I shall save up and buy myself a pair.

I first saw JC Litas on a youtube video by Clothes Encounters (, and was completely amazed at how high the wooden heels were. I was also intrigued by the front of the shoe and the laces. I had never seen any shoe like it! I also love how there are so many colours, patterns and textures to choose from. My favourite designs are the standard black leather ones, the cat tapestry ones and the black leather ones with the silver studded heels.
Despite having a very tall heel, many people have said that they are extremely comfortable to wear all day.

If you would like to buy a pair (who wouldn't!), then check out They offer free shipping worldwide.

Seeing as this is my first blog post, I thought I might as well start off by saying  "Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Albertine and I am 14. This blog is going to be a place where I share my thoughts and interests. Some of which include makeup, art, fashion and photography. I may also do some makeup reviews and tutorials in the near future if anybody is interested. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading my blog and feel free to post comments (That is if I figure out how to allow comments!)
Toodle-loo! x
