Aussie Miracle Moist and Mega Shampoo & Conditioner Dupes - Head to Aldi

I was flicking through the Aldi special buys magazine today and was intrigued and delighted to see that next Thursday the 29th May Aldi are launching some new Shampoo's and Conditioner's that strikes an uncanny resemblance to the Aussie hair care range which I absolutely love. The products are packaged the same and they have very similar ingredients except this hair care range goes by the name of Carino and costs a fraction of the price.

The Carino Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner contain Australian Macadamia Nut which helps to condition and smooth your hair JUST like the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and conditioner. I'm wondering will I get the same healthy nourished feeling for my locks for the unbeatable price of €2.49.

I'm also interested in the Carino Mighty Shampoo and Conditioner which contains a similar ingredient to the Aussie Mega shampoo and conditioner. Kangaroo Paw flower adds life and shine to dull hair giving you that bounce that we all love. Again at just €2.49 a bottle Thursday can't come round quick enough.


What do you think? I have high hopes and can't wait to try them out. These are subject to availability and when they are gone, they're gone as Aldi says. Aussie prices are from Boots and I worked out a total savings of €18.90 when sticking with the Carino brand. That's a nice little round of cocktails right there ladies! 

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to share this with your friends.

I've noticed an increase of wonderful bloggers here in Ireland deciding to join the exciting world of YouTube. I myself started making videos on YouTube three years ago before I started to blog. I thought it would be fun to mention some of my favourite Irish bloggers who have now turned into YouTubers. Mostly new to vlogging otherwise it would be one long post!

Kat - Dolly Rouge
I was so thrilled to see Kat over on YouTube doing chatty beauty related videos because Dolly Rouge which is run by Kat and Rachelle is one of my favourite Irish blogs. I enjoyed Kat's Curlformers tutorial, she put a lot of effort into it and provided a great review for people thinking about purchasing this product.

Karen & Joanne -LovelyGirlieBits
I have always been a fan of Karen and Joanne for the brilliant review posts. They do the best before and after shots over on their blog LovelyGirlieBits. So clear and you really get a feel for the product they're taking about. When they started making videos it was fun from the word go. They aren't afraid to be themselves which is refreshing! 

Emma - FluffandFripperies
Emma blogs about fashion and beauty, she's such a lovely person you kinda wish you could be her best friend! It was only a matter of time before she joined Youtube to share her wisdom on all things beauty. She really knows what she's talking about and is a natural on front of the camera. 

Dee & Sinead - Viva Adonis
Dee and Sinead are fantastic bloggers. These life long friends really make a great team on their blog and Youtube channel. They have a real passion for beauty and are always on the ball with current trends and must have products.

Mags - Emerald Eyeliner Blog
Mags is great fun and I'm so glad to see her videos pop up in my subscriptions. Iv'e had the pleasure of meeting her a few times and she always puts a smile on my face. She does great haul and favourite's videos so check them out. 

These are just a few of my favourite Irish bloggers turned vloggers. I have many more but just wanted to take the time and share some newcomers with you. 

Who are your favourites? Tell me in the comments below. 


19 May 2014


I had lots of fun doing a collaboration with Beauty Guru BextacyBeauty over on YouTube. We decided to do the €20 make-up challenge following current Spring/Summer make-up trends. The purpose of the challenge is to complete a full face of make up using products with the combined total of €20. For the main theme of our looks we went with S/S '14 trends. Word on the street is that blues, purples and golds are all in this season. Bold brows, winged liner and coral lips are also in. 

I decided to go with the blue trend and used the On Cloud Nine trio palette by Wet n Wild to achieve the look below. I was also able to use this palette to fill in my brows which was an added bonus. 

Products I used:
NYC Skin Matching Luminizer foundation in Fair €4.49
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny (????)
NYC Creme stick blush in Big Apple Blush €3.49
NYC High Definition separating mascara €2.99
Wet n Wild Trio Eyeshadow palette on On Cloud Nine €4.49
Essence Colur & Shine eyeshadow in Simply Me €1.00
Essence Ballerina Backstage Lipgloss in On Your Gracile Tiptoe €1.99

Iv'e left the prices above for you and the total is €18.45. You might notice I have no price for the Bronzer, for the love of god I can't find the price anywhere! So in total I say I just went over the €20 mark but I'm still delighted with the look I achieved. I've never played with light blues like this before because I just love my purples and browns. I really liked how the look turned out. 

Check out Beckys look below. Becky did a stunning purple eye look using some fabulously affordable products. I think the UK market as more to offer in the way of make-up products compared to Ireland. After watching her video I'm thinking of flying over just to save on make-up haha! 

Thank you for stopping by and as always thank you for your support. Be sure to check out our collaboration looks and subscribe if you haven't already.
