KARMIC COLD PRESSED CLEANSE REVIEW
Fruit and Veggies are the most life enhancing food we can put in our bodies…. They are high in water with vital amino acids, minerals and vitamins that help to dissolve toxic substances and cleanse our tissues and system.
The reason I decided to complete this cleanse was because lately, I have been feeling really sluggish and not as clear and sparkly as usual. Not only was my energy level at an all time low, I have been feeling stressed and run down which has caused me to hold on to water retention, feel acidic and bloated and honestly, I’m over drinking alcohol and my major addiction to caffeine. So, its time for a reset. I am intuitive with my body and I was ready for a detox! The juice cleanse I did focused on GUT Health and each juice is Organic and has less than 5% fructose.
I truly LOVE to Juice fast 2 times or more a year as a way to flood my system with nutrient dense love!!!
I believe Nutrition is healing and a way to reverse damage and eliminate toxins to supercharge the healing process of body love for an alkaline body that feels light, is pure and your beauty glows from within!!! My fav juice base is celery which is loaded with potassium, folic acid, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and essential amino acids. On top of all that, celery is one of the most alkaline things you can put in your body.
Juice cleansing floods the bod with super active absorbable vitamins and nutrition so the whole body system can rest and rejuvenate naturally!!! Yum! Cleanse, repair and replenish.
Firstly what is important to look out for when choosing the best quality juice cleanse is the quality of machinery used.
Cold pressed juice VS non Cold pressed juice.
1. Cold pressed Juice
Cold Pressed is better for you as they have way more nutritional benefits. They gently press the fruit and veg as opposed to being heated up and massacred. When there is no heat there is less oxidisation and the minerals, vitamins and enzymes stay alive. This supports the body with repairing muscles, boosting the immune system and balancing acidic levels.
Karmic Cold Pressed juice uses the best quality machinery.
2. Centrifugal Juice Extractors
The problem with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you’re juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.

What to ask for: Semi permanent lip tattoo. Replacing the lip’s lost border gives a more youthful appearance, re-defining natural lip contour for a more perfect pout! It’s also a great way to create the illusion of a fuller pout without injections, and correct proportion to balance the lips while leaving a beautiful hue so you don’t need lipstick.
Details: There are a range of colours to chose which are vegan, organic and manufactured with 30 years experience in Germany. The colours contain no heavy metals which is a common ingredient in pigments, many are harmful or toxic, as they can not be broken down in the body. No PAH – “Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons” (in many pigments), slightly water-soluble, numerous PAHs have been proven to be carcinogenic. No NDELA – “Nitrosodiethanolamine” Nitrosamines are a reactive product of nitrite and amines (as in proteins) Proven to have a strong carcinogenic effect. They use LONG-TIME-LINER® pigments. They are mineral based pigments that have low allergy and high colour stability.
What to expect: Semi-permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing. It involves the controlled incorporation of colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue. Basically, it helps improve appearance by giving definition to the lips. During the first treatment they draw your lips before the procedure to determine the colour and define your lip in the ideal shape to ensure symmetry, harmony and balance to accentuate your natural beauty. They numb your lips by using a medical grade topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the treatment and throughout the process to minimise discomfort. Two weeks later I went for my next session to tweak and add extra colour and outline depth to my lips.
Does it hurt?: The short answer is no. There is a vibrating sensation and medical grade anaesthetic is used. Expect tenderness afterwards, and swelling but aftercare is minimal. The night of the treatment I was able to go to an event, my lips were swollen, they looked pretty and the colour was bright. I used an icepack directly after the session. Three days later my lips were a little dry so I kept applying the Bepanthen Antiseptic, the Vitamin A + Vitamin D Ointment and refrained from touching or peeling the lips.
Every day my lips look more and more beautiful! It is the best thing I have done in Beauty!
Price: A Lip Tint Tattoo with Anthea Palmer is $1275 for 2 x 2.5 hour treatments 2 weeks apart.
Other providers may only include 1 treatment, or have the 2nd treatment as a quick “Touch Up” whereas they do 2 FULL 2.5 hour treatments to ensure 100% coverage and client satisfaction.
They also have AfterPay available in their clinic which means payments can be stretched out over 8 weeks interest free, that’s $318.75 per fortnight which is only $159.37 per week!
Before treatment, my lips had lost their pigment and my lip line had faded.

My latest skincare hero is Andalou Naturals.
The beauty market has changed dramatically with a greater focus on natural beauty. This is a shift that doesn’t surprise me because we really need to go that way. It’s ethical and beyond necessity. We need to be aware of our impact on the planet in all different ways of life and beauty seems like an obvious step to start daily.
For Andalou Naturals, their goal was to create an empowerment brand with a mission to influence an industry to do better, while creating a sustainable source of revenue for social responsibility. This beauty brand, is the ultimate culmination of their many years developing meaningful policy and healthy products partnered with their deep commitment to uplifting people and the planet.
The Australian environment is both a blessing and a curse it is what makes our country great, (especially the northern beaches in Sydney) but not so great, for our skin.
It is confronting and important to know that we have the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, and photo-damage is a daily battle, and sometimes it takes an Australian to know exactly what Australians need when it comes to beauty products.
This is why Natural active Beauty products are the best! Ingredients like Vitamin C pulls double-duty by working on damage that’s already happened and helping prevent further problems before they even start. Your future is looking bright when you use this….
As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps neutralize the free radical damage that occurs when your skin is exposed to environmental stressors like UV light and pollution. Studies have shown that it can really boost collagen to firm and tone the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and disrupt pigment production to give the complexion a healthy sheen and glow!

When it comes to brightening and beauty glowing skin words like “fruit stem cell science” & “potent vitamin c” Andalou is a science based evidence product where health and beauty form an alignment. I love using powerful natural skincare that is chemical free. It is incredibly important to stay away from Hormone disrupters like fragrance, oxybenzone and parabens and eradicate toxic and chemical induced products as they can disrupt your hormones and lead to a negative array of health issues.

It helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface to reveal brighter, more beautiful skin. Made with Pumpkin Puree, Manuka Honey and Glycolic Acid AHA, as well as Andalou’s innovative Fruit Stem Cell Science, this mask works to leave behind plump, smooth skin with a more even skin tone. It tighten my skin and brightened up what was dull. It smells like my mummas organic home made pumpkin soup!
This Enlighten Serum from the Andalou Naturals Brightening range uses a scientifically proven Fruit Stem Cell Complex combined with Turmeric, Vitamin C, Sea Buckthorn oil and Grape Seed Polyphenols to target hyper-pigmentation and UV damage. This serum helps to lighten, tighten and brighten the complexion by fighting free radicals and promoting the formation of collagen and elastin.

High in mineral content, their water comes straight from the earth’s core. Peninsula Hot Springs is a filtration hot spring with surface water estimated to have been deep within the earth for more than 10,000 years. Their waters rise from 637 metres below the ground and are classified as true mineral springs.
Minerals and their Benefits:
Native cultures have universally utilised mineral waters for healing, puri cation ceremonies, sacred gathering and tribal meetings.
Baleonolgy is the scientific study of the thereupatic benefits of naturally occurring mineral waters. Throughout Europe and Japan, baleonolgoy and hot springs therapy has been incorporated within routine medical care treatments. Licensed doctors have now come to recognise the value of prescribing bathing in mineral waters as part of a preventative approach to illness.
Peninsula Hot Springs are sodium chloride bicarbonate hot springs, with a ph level of 6.8. The alkalinity is primarily the result of potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium ions.
Bathing in bicarbonate water assists in the opening of peripheral blood vessels, improvement of circulation to the body’s extremities and can help address hypertension and mild atherosclerosis.
Mineral springs that are naturally rich in chlorides, in amounts between 0.5% to 3%, are considered by some researchers
to be beneficial for rheumatic conditions, arthritis, central nervous system conditions, post traumatic and postoperative disorders. Peninsula Hot Springs contain 1432 parts per million (PPM) chloride content.
Peninsula Hot Springs is a really tranquil space to detach from the world and heal.
You will undoubtedly leave the springs rejuvenated and glowing—but ready to head back in a heartbeat.
