Get Delicious with Skinolicious, the original oat, honey and corn scrub

Hi everyone!

I hope you have all had a great week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Work has really kicked my butt this week, so I’m looking forward to a cruisy weekend and catching up with some friends.

Recently, I was lucky enough to have the lovely crew at Skinolicious send me a package of their face scrub to review.  This will be the first full review of a product I’ve written for the blog, so please bear with me!


Skinolicious are a new company on the scene and have created an all-natural face scrub with lots of skin-friendly ingredients.  Based in Perth, Western Australia, the scrub contains food-grade ingredients of fresh lemons, oats, honey and coconut oil, with corn acting as the exfoliant – which is a great alternative to nasty microbeads which we all know are awful for the environment!  The scrub is 100% biodegradable, and Skinolicious are firmly against animal testing.

The packaging for the scrub is completely unique and unlike anything I have ever seen before.  Each package contains 14 super cute sachets of scrub, which remind me a bit of a sachet of hot chocolate!  Due to the food-grade ingredients, the scrub is stored in the freezer to keep it fresh.  Because the ingredients don’t freeze solid, you can use it on your face directly from the freezer which is really handy.  I got around three uses from each sachet, so at $24.95 a pack, it is great value!  I used one of these little Ikea clips to re-seal the sachet which worked perfectly.


The first thing that struck me when I opened the package was the amazing smell!  The scrub has a beautiful fresh lemony scent and really does smell good enough to eat.  Because the scrub is a very wet texture, I did find it a little messy to use on my face, so I would definitely recommend using it in the shower so it doesn’t go everywhere.  Due to the honey in the scrub, it needs to be rinsed with warm water to remove.

The scrub feels lovely and soft on the skin, with the corn granules gently buffing the skin as you rub it in.  I personally like the feeling of a harsher scrub (although this is probably not the best thing for my face!), so simply scrubbing a bit harder worked well for me.

After using Skinolicious I was blown away by how amazing my skin felt – it was the smoothest it has ever been after using an exfoliating scrub!  I have been using the scrub before my night skincare routine and found that my products soak into my skin beautifully after scrubbing.  My skin still feels really fresh and smooth the next morning.  Going forwards, I will definitely incorporate the scrub into my routine, and aim to use it 2 – 3 times a week.

I really love trying out new products, particularly those that are natural and ethical without costing the earth, and Skinolicious have created a fantastic scrub that ticks all the boxes.  I also get a real kick out of supporting small Aussie businesses, and I’ll absolutely be repurchasing once my supply runs out.  I’d have no hesitation in recommending Skinolicious if you are after a new addition to your skincare routine.

You can visit for a load more information and to purchase this great product.  They offer free shipping Australia-wide which is an added bonus!

What are your favourite scrubs and exfoliating products, and are you keen to try out Skinolicious for yourself?  Let me know in the comments!

Love, Sarah xx

Colourpop Haul – My Little Pony Collection, brushes and more!

Colourpop Haul – My Little Pony Collection, brushes and more!

As you may have already seen on my Instagram, I recently received a big ol’ order from Colourpop, so I thought I’d put together a quick post to show you what I got!  Colourpop are one of my favourite makeup brands.  They are cruelty free and super affordable, and I’m really excited to see them branch out into a much wider range of products.  I’ve done some conversions at the time of posting from USD to AUD so Aussie visitors to my page can get a rough idea of how much these items will set you back (spoiler alert – not much!)  I love reading and watching hauls so I hope you all enjoy this one!


My Little Pony Pressed Powder Shadow Palette – $16USD, approx $21AUD
I’m a recent convert to Colourpop’s powder eyeshadows and this palette offers a great selection of shades which are quite different to anything else out there at the moment.  I’ve used it a few times already and the quality is fantastic, and the packaging is completely adorable!


Belle of the Ball Pressed Powder Shadow Palette – $12USD, approx $16AUD
I adore pink eyeshadows so this palette offered a perfect selection of the single shades.  There are a few different curated combinations of the single shadows available, so it is a great way to try out the product without becoming overewhelmed by all the different shades to choose from.  Buying in a palette is more economical, too!


From top to bottom:
My Little Pony Pressed Powder Highlighter in Trickles – $8USD, approx $10.50AUD
Blending Brush – $6USD, approx $8AUD
Pressed Powder Shadows in Poodle and Paper Tiger – $4USD each, approx $5.30AUD
Pressed Powder Highlighters in Here Kitty Kitty and Go Honey – $8USD each, approx $10.50 AUD
You can purchase the single shadows, highlighters and other products in the pan only, or in a com;pact for an extra $1USD.  I store mine in my a2o Lab Magnetic Palette – there are a bunch of different ones available here, and they are a fraction of the cost of a Z Palette.
My Little Pony Super Shock Shadow in Sunbeam – $5USD, approx $6.50AUD
Tapered Blending Brush – $6USD, approx $8AUD


From top to bottom:
My Little Pony Ultra Matte Lip in Pinwheel – $6USD, approx $8AUD
No Filter Concealer – $6USD, approx $8AUD
I bought shades 05 Fair and 10 Fair Neutral to try and I am really impressed so far!
Ultra Matte Lip in Bad Habit – $6USD, approx $8AUD
This is a bonus mini that was thrown in with a handwritten note apologising for the delay in delivery (which I didn’t really notice, but would have been due to the massive My Little Pony release).  How is that for customer service?
Precision Brown Pencil in Dope Taupe – $5USD, approx $6.50AUD


Crystal Setting Spray in Aventurine – $6USD, approx $8AUD
I haven’t actually heard a lot about this range of primer and setting sprays, but at such a good price I’m really looking forward to trying it out.  It also came in a glass bottle which was a nice, fancy surprise!

So there you have it for the haul!  Please let me know in the comments if you would like more detailed reviews on any of the products.  Keep an eye on my Instagram for some swatches coming up too (if the sun ever comes out and gives me some decent lighting!)

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you back here very soon

First impression reviews – cheap and cruelty free

Hi everyone and welcome back to Bigg Beauty!  Thank you so much for all of the love I received for my first post earlier this week.  I was really nervous putting myself out there so I was so thrilled to receive such a positive response!

As you would have learnt in my get to know me post, I am constantly purchasing makeup and beauty products and I love trying out new things.  I am going to make first impressions and reviews a fairly regular feature of this blog as I figure this kind of information could be useful to those of you who don’t have quite the same shopping and spending compulsions that I do.  Read on for my thoughts on some new goodies I picked up recently.
