You all know we love, adore and sing the praises of Dermalogica. However, we’ve recently discovered a new brand that we are also very excited about and are thrilled to announce the Sodashi brand is now available for purchase at A Touch of Beauty! For those who are after natural, cruelty free and chemical free ingredients then this is definitely right up your alley. With a reputation as one of the purest skin care ranges in the world, Sodashi selects their ingredients based on their therapeutic, regenerative and anti-aging qualities of plant essences. Sodashi is a Sanskrit word that translates to wholeness, purity and radiance and having experienced the range ourselves, we now know that this is true. The range smells amazing with sandalwood, lime and chamomile being some of the main aromatic notes you will come across.
For those interested in discovering a new skincare option or incorporating a few natural options into your existing one we urge you to come in and try a sample!
To me, every product in the Dermalogica Age Smart range can do no wrong and apparently a majority of other people feel the same way to, with two out of three products in the range being best sellers.
Dermalogica’s SkinPerfect Primer SPF 30 is a personal favorite of mine simply because it makes my makeup look amazing. Apply this before your foundation and watch as velvety silicones even out skin tone, smoothes away fine lines and illuminates your skin with radiance. It has a neutral tint so can be worn alone or underneath make-up to extend wear. Definitely worth sampling!
Multivitamin Power Serum is one of your best defenses against skin aging. Applied prior to moisturizing, it will stimulate collagen formation and decrease fine lines, while antioxidant protection helps to control pigmentation. If you’re looking for an all-star product that will help stimulate the change you want to see this is it!
The last of the best sellers is the Ultrasmoothing Eye Serum from the Ultracalming range. If you’re concerned about those tell-tale crows feet appearing this product will help keep them at bay. This powerful fluid containing Red Algae and Golden Chamomile will reduce puffiness while Kernal Extract helps soothe fragile skin. This is my personal favorite to apply when I’ve had a longer Saturday night then expected!
Do any of these sound like they deserve a space in your bathroom cabinet? If so, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 08 8373 2944 to find out more!
For all those who love a large group picnic and the effortless chic of all-white clothing you’re going to love this social outing that has taken the world by storm, Diner En Blanc. This story begins in Paris by a man named François Pasquier who invited a few friends to the Bois de Boulogne one day in June. To find each other in the park, they all wore white. The dinner was such a success that they decided the next year, each person would invite some other friends and the event grew organically into the 10000+ dinner it is today.
Our old Front Desk Coordinator Bre attended her first one in Portland, Oregon, USA last weekend and it looks amazing! From table linen to chairs, plates, flowers and your outfit, everything has to be in white and you bring everything to the event yourself. Once everyone arrives and sets up their table, all the guests twirl their white linen napkins in the air to signal the start of dinner and then after bellies are full, sparklers are handed out and lighted to get the party and music started.
I checked to see if Adelaide has ever had one and indeed they have. The 2014 Diner en Blanc was held at the Adelaide Zoo and who knows where next year’s will be at. The venue always changes and is a secret with invitees only finding out about the location last minute. If you are interested in attending the next Diner En Blanc in Adelaide you can register here!

Happy 30th Birthday to this little ray of sunshine Hayley! We’re so happy we get to celebrate this milestone with her and because it’s such a big deal so was her salon b-day. A 30 year old with a smile as contagious as this deserves to be spoilt and so she was with a stunning floral arrangement from Adelaide Flower House, Haigh’s Chocolates, cupcakes and of course a beautiful card with money from all us girls so she can buy something nice. Jo also gave her a gift voucher to Net-a-Porter so it sounds like Hayley has a lot of shopping to do!
Hayley thank you for being a wonderful addition to the ATOB team. We hope you have a birthday week to remember! xx
