  • Vitamin D & Sunscreen: Are They Compatible?

    Tue, 28 October 2014 3:00PM

    The world of sunscreen formulations is incredibly complex: nanoparticles, chemical vs physical, broad-spectrum or UVB-only protection…and that’s just the beginning. Back in the day, we were told to just slip slop slap (a message we oft ignored it had to be said!) so that we could safely play in the sun like Jennifer Hawkins is… more

  • The (Rather Shocking) Truth About Sun Damage

    Tue, 21 October 2014 8:30AM

    If ever there was a picture of sun kissed perfection it would have to be this: total bronzed babe (and with her own fake tan range no less!), Kimmy K. She is the flawless epitome of honey caramel (and let me tell you a lil’ secret –  she works hard to achieve it. Ms Kardashian… more

  • Not Using SPF50 Facial Sunscreen? Then You Need To Read This.

    Fri, 10 October 2014 2:59PM

    Here’s a freaky fact for you: according to new research by Neutrogena, only 30% of women actually bother to apply facial sunscreen on a daily basis. I know. I KNOW. So despite all those skin cancer awareness campaigns and our increased understanding of how UV rays cause premature skin ageing, 70% of us choose to dodge… more

  • The Warning On Winter Sun Damage

    Thu, 19 June 2014 11:30AM

    Few dangers during summer still surprise me. I’ve lived through the ill-fated bikini strap snap on Bondi Beach and have had to reconcile an upturned mini-Esky on the handlebars of my fixy for sure. And that’s not even touching on the warnings surrounding sun damage. Which is why you could swat me sideways with a feather-duster… more



  • It’s Time to Get Serious About the Sun

    Thu, 25 October 2012 5:07PM

    Hands up who thinks they’ve got a pretty good sun care routine going on? Hopefully, your arm is in the air right now. Primpers, I know I don’t have to tell you how important it is to take proper care of your skin, not just now in the lead-up to the summer season, but year round…. more



  • Say Bonjour to Nuxe & La Roche-Posay!

    Thu, 30 August 2012 10:36AM

    You probably know my love of all things French by now. Brigitte Bardot, Paris, champagne, parfum … the list could go on and on. I’ve also blogged about my adoration of a certain cult cleansing water known as BioDerma Créaline H2O, $39.95, from selected pharmacies (see Cosmétiques de France for a store locator). Whenever I’m… more



  • PRIMPED Science Class. Today’s Subject: Nanotechnology

    Fri, 27 July 2012 4:05PM

    I walked out of science one day when we were told we had to dissect a frog. And I never went back. So whenever I have to research anything too biological or high-techy for my job, let’s just say the old brain cells get more than a bit of a workout. But while I tend… more

  • I use spray-on sunscreens on my body because I’m lazy.

    Fri, 12 November 2010 10:01AM

    And because of said laziness, I thank the beauty gods for providing me with the technology to do such a thing. But what about you, Primps? Do you use spray-on sunscreens or are you a traditional girl who uses the creamy-type formulas? Or do you just opt for the easier, but ridiculously dangerous, option of… more

  • Brand spankin’ new SPF products that I simply LOVE

    Mon, 23 August 2010 1:31PM

    If I were a celebrity, I think Christina Hendricks and I would be quite the buddies. Not only because she seems like a lovely person and has exceptional taste and style, but because after Yaz went snooping around in her makeup bag this morning (she’s so sneaky, our lovely Yaz), I’ve also discovered she has… more
