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!

Do visit our Wynn’s Over Lice™ website for even more details. We also have a Facebook page too, and you can follow us on Twitter as well. We’ve even made a couple of fun, 1 minute youtube videos that you should definitely watch if you’re up for a scratch and a giggle or three. I’ll be back to list those soon. Promise!

Gosh, is it ever so lovely to be back. But most importantly though, thank you so very much for dusting off our Get Even More Gorgeous With Beauty Marked! URL and coming by for a visit. You’ve totally made my day!

See…Good Things Do Come In Small Packages.


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!

Nothing Like A Bit Of…Beauty Mail!


Dear BM!,

I have a quick question about eyebrows. Apparently, I am “supposed to” stay away from tweezing or waxing the hairs above my brows according to the “experts”. Why is that? What harm can I do? This blanket warning sounds rather scary to me.

Thanks for your beaut question. To be perfectly honest, I don’t really understand this rather hard to discern warning that is often given about establishing a “no go zone” in regards tweezing above the brows. Perhaps, it’s just a bit of scaremongering, as is some folk’s wont, but please do write in if you cleaver possums have any inklings as to why. After all, the hairs above most certainly need tending to, that’s for sure (think Cro-Magnon Man). The hairs above the brows have the very same rate of growth as below the eyebrows and have just as much influence on the overall shape of your precious arches as does the area I affectionately call the “underbrush”. We say at Chez Beauty Marked!, if you are competent and, more importantly, confident in removing and clearing out rogue brow hairs below the eyebrow, you surely can do the same above.

My only suggestion to you is that if you are waxing make sure the wax is slightly cooler (and only just) than what you would regularly use below the brow, in order to retard that perilous “runny factor” that can be the undoing of so many perfect eyebrows. Yes, you know the one…(sadly, I think we all do). And, if you are tweezing, first brush your brows downward, towards your eyelashes, with a brow groomer, in order to isolate the hairs most annoyingly perched above your eyebrows in order to effectively target them for removal before having a go and then… Go For It! *cue roars from your very own BM! cheering squad* “You can do it! We know you can! If you can’t do it, no one can!”


BM! x
