And The Oscar Nod For The Best Scratch Ever Goes To…

Wynn’s Over Lice™! No, not really, but wouldn’t that be grand? We reckon that if there ever was a category for best scratch or three in a YouTube video, Wynn’s would be a shoe-in. Even though Wynn’s Over Lice™ takes getting rid of head lice very seriously, it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while we are doing it. Do check out the current series of three, fun, 1 minute videos that are sure to generate a scratch and a giggle or more. They’re totally fun!



If you enjoy these fun videos as we are sure you will, Wynn’s would be delighted if you’d like them and or leave comment. Wynn’s Over Lice™ is also on Twitter and Facebook too. Thanks! x

Here’s Hoping Absence Does Make The Heart Grow Fonder!

Hello Beauties!

I know it has been donkey’s years since I’ve posted on my blog. Oh, the shame! I haven’t been 100% AWOL though, it’s more like 98.7%. As I have been gleefully working away doing all the beauty-FULL stuff that I love, but just in different guises. My latest adventure has been to finally get around to bottling a really wonderful all natural, exceedingly effective, Australian made head lice treatment that not only gets rid of head lice, but leaves you with really amazing hair!

As many of you would know, I have a gorgeous tribe of children, seven delightful cherubs to be exact. And more to the point, they have ALL been blessed with some of the thickest, longest, most delectably curly hair you can get, which while at primary school, has proven to be the perfect head lice magnet imaginable. Talk about mixed blessings. Sigh. So, seeing that their hair is such a nit-magnet, I have had plenty to do with getting rid of those often itchy nuisances, sadly. I’ve tried much of the products available on the market, just short of Napalm, and never really got wholly satisfactory results.

Seeing that necessity is the mother of invention, I made some kick butt hair stuff myself. The really cool aspect about developing a head lice product yourself and living and breathing all things beauty as I do, was that I was able to source and then create a treatment that uses the most top shelf ingredients available, that works and delivers great, head lice-free hair. So without further ado, it is my complete pleasure to introduce you to Wynn’s Over Lice™.

Wynn’s Over Lice™, quite naturally…does great hair!

A Beautiful, Yet Unlikely Ally.

Oddly enough, I stumbled upon (ever so graciously of course) a great makeup base for the more heavily “character lined” ladies in the 70+ age bracket. It’s a well known fact that powder and wrinkles can spell a recipe for disaster with the aged, hence the reason why most elegant elder stateswomen prefer to give it a miss in their increasingly minimalist makeup regime. All powdered products are generally the first to be jettisoned as they can rest awkwardly in the “character lines” or look rather caky. It’s in knowing this about powdered products and their affinity for doing wayward things with wrinkles, that my product suggestion for a flawless base will most certainly surprise you: L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals. I kid you not. Although targeted for sale within a much younger age group, this unlikely ally works a treat for those well traveled across the age ranges, so to speak.

Unlike many mineral makeup formulations, L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals isn’t sparkly nor a flat matte and is so finely milled that it imparts only the most delicate, lightweight, boundary-blurring veil across the skin, leaving a long lasting gloriously radiant, light reflecting, soft focus effect that is most welcomed. L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals have been dermatologist tested and proven safe for sensitive skins and are non comedogenic and non-occlusive, which can still be an issue for some older, more mature skins. Let’s not forget that like most mineral makeup, there is a SPF benefit in wearing L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals as well, with its SPF of 15. L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals contain aloe, and Vitamins B and E to nurture and to protect against free radicals. Who would of thunk it? A powdered foundation that actually plays fabulously well with wrinkles and provides a natural, earnest, skin-protecting coverage to boot. Love it! Another considerate addition to L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals is its convenient packaging that comes with a built-in natural hair, kabuki-style brush that is protected and kept clean and readied for tidy, evenly dispensed use under the snap-on cap. Nice one L’Oréal!

L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals are available in six universal shades to suit a variety of skin colours and is on counter at selected pharmacies, department, and variety stores nation-wide for $34.95 AUD. In Australia, your local stockist details are available by telephoning 1300 659 259.

Beauty Marked! has had this little pocket rocket a while now and has been just too tickled pink with the results to put it down long enough to write about it. Tragic but true. BaBylissPRO Mighty Mini Straightener is the niftiest “little” beauty I have seen in the straightening game that actually delivers “big” on results. BaBylissPro Mighty Mini Straightener produces the same maxi results of a full sized iron and is mini only in its size. The Mighty Mini Straightener is 15 cm long and offers narrow plates that allow you to effectively straighten closer to the scalp while maximizing the advantages of far-infrared heat for optimal straightening. The BaByliss Mighty Mini quickly heats up to temperatures of 210℃ and with its Advanced Surround Heat and ceramic/titanium plates, it effortlessly glides through the hair to create seriously straight strands, super tight curls, sumptuous waves, and flirty flicks. This purse-sized dual-voltage dynamo is perfect for travel and is available in metallic pink (as pictured), blue, hi-gloss red, and raven black.

Talk about a most definitely excellent styling appliance for tending to those little running repairs often needed to tantalizingly tweak our tresses throughout the day, but is generally not possible due to the behemoth size and lack of portability of most straightening irons. This is a fab find for the fellas too by the way. Beauty Marked! also loves to call this natty styling tool to duty for the times when you need to extend your salon styled quoif just a bit longer until your next booked visit. *idea*

BaBylissPRO Mighty Mini Straightener and so much more are available from Dateline City. Do check it out. We just adore it!

Get Your Own Look!


It’s not often that I have a bellyache about my beloved beauty business, but I think today I must. This post is tantamount to a virtual scream into the pillow of profound frustration. Why must we always “Get The Look or Get The Hair of Missy Moo” or any one of the many millions of beautiful people in our beautiFULL world? What’s the matter with getting our own gorgeous look? And your look is gorgeous too.

I am crazed today about this often bantered about slogan of “get this and get that”, because I feel it quite cavalierly bypasses our own innate beauty. Why not get your own look and…Work It Baby!? This is a far better slogan that shows an appreciation for our own infinite beauty and doesn’t prey on insecurities. The great thing about our beautiFULL world is that you are what make it so beautiful. Like it or not Lovely OnesYou Are Beautiful and it’s about time you realized it, got your own look and worked it!
