Autumn can be a tricky one in terms of how the weather shapes up but there's no denying it, when the cool change hits our hair and skin can start to play-up! This week we've been looking for products that will keep us looking glossy, shimmery and well-moisturised from head to toe. Face serums, bronzers and lip treatments are just a few of the Autumn essentials we're coveting right now and our fashion editor, Ali, for one, is also looking to mix up her 'do. Come see our (right now) top beauty picks!
Fashion week may have ended last week, but it hasn’t stopped us dreaming about all the to-die-for beauty looks we spotted on the runway. So, it's really no surprise we made a beeline straight to the lip looks. We’ve also picked some essential must-haves that we just couldn’t live without (of course!). It's time for some TLC, come see…
Easter has been and gone, but that doesn't mean treat time is over, too!

From a face illuminator that has the beauty industry in a buzz, to a power serum will act like a force field on your face! Click through.
That's a pretty outrageous statement, right? It's hard to believe that these days, we can have our crooked teeth corrected in as little as six months. Late last year I was invited to have a consultation with Dr. Baisi — a member of The Invisible Orthodontist group. This group of orthodontists specialise in Invisalign, those magical, near-invisible braces.

I've considered having Invisalign fitted for years, so this was finally the push I needed to find out if it would work for me. To hear about my initial consult, keep reading.
To celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, L'Occitane is allowing women to indulge in a little bit of self-pampering while giving back at the same time. The beauty brand is releasing its Solidarity Fundraising Soap ($4) which is made from fair-trade shea butter and produced in a completely women-run factory in African nation Burkina Faso. All of the proceeds from the soap sales will help build literacy centres for women there. Pick up your soap on March 8 and help spread some girl power around the world. Who said beauty was a shallow affair?
Yesterday we gave you 10 products for the boy, but now it's time for number one — you. If you want to get into the Valentine's Day spirit (and shock the pants off of your bed partner at the same time), then we have some goodies for you. V-Day can mean nurses outfits and body chocolate, but it can also mean killer bedroom heels, some lotion to get things in motion and a body oil that you'll want to wear everyday — not just in private. Curious? It really is the best way to be...
Sounds like a superhero and you know what? It kinda is. Goe Oil is a rescue balm of sorts that can be used anywhere and everywhere — a bit like your trusty paw paw ointment. The one pictured here is Jao Brand Goe Oil ($40), and it is 100 percent natural — no nasties to speak of. But what's in it and how does it work, you scream? Keep reading.

If you haven't sorted out those Winter feet yet, treat yourself to some pampering time this weekend to get them open toe shoe ready. You've really left it quite late...! We asked the Sugars to tell us their favourite toe nail polish — kinda needs to go with everything and not clash with the polish on our fingernails — and the product they use to make their feet look photo shoot ready. From the perfect nude to the perfect pumice, come with us.
Tubs get all the attention as bathroom relaxation stations. If you live in a small space that's shower-only, though, you can still create a beauty retreat at home. While you might not have the spare change to transform your shower stall into a Vichy palace, there are a few easy additions you can make to promote a spa-like experience. Get your construction-free renovation list when you keep reading.
