banner26  Devine Serenity Product Review for Flur De Mur Tinted Sunscreen.

Scorching summer days are just around the corner, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce you to the Flur De Mur Tinted SPF 50.

This has to be hands down one of my absolute favourite products! This light weight sunscreen has recently had a makeover of it’s own, now offering a SPF of 50 from the previous 30SPF formulation. This improvement has not altered the consistancy or coverage at all and has simply improved the legth of time you are protected and increased the percentage of UV Rays filtered.

This product comes in a range of 3 tints Light, Soft Medium and Medium, as well as the untinted clear (Perfect for the kids, men or those that dont like makeup). The coverage is fabulous and with this buildable product you can get a surprisingly good coverage for pigment and scarring. The colours blend together beautifully to get a greater colour range, and can still be finished with a bronzer or setting powder. I love that my skin feels light and make up free with this product, while looking fabulous. ( I always get compliments on my make up and skin when wearing it.) This product protects the skin from UVA (Skin Aging) Rays as well as the UVB (Skin Burning) Rays, and is water resistant making it your pre workout or swimming must have. Of course we still recomend avoiding the harsh UV Rays between 10am and 3pm (or 6am and 5pm if you are fair like me and turn into ripe tomato after 30 mins of moderate sun). Please don’t forget the Hat, broad spectrum sunnies to protect the only 2 eyes you have and try keep to the shade.

With sun damage being the number one contributing factor to prematurely aged skin and Cancer in Australia, this product without a doubt should be in every persons  summer skin care kit. Try it once and fall in love with it forever more…

We are offering complimantary samples to every client so call and book your colour match and collect your sample today!

Beauty Prep List

By Devine Serenity Beauty & Relaxation


1- 2 Weeks out from the big race you may want to have a deeply cleansing and light resurfacing facial including extractions to clear out, and lightly buff the skin leaving it a lovely glow and smooth, hydrated canvas for  a beautiful make up application.

3-7 days out from the big day brows will need maintenance, tinting, lash perming and tinting will enhance and lengthen the look of lashes.

3-4 Days before ensure all hair removal is done this allows the skin to calm before tanning

2-3 days before the big race, full body exfoliation to prep the skin for Spray tan be careful of the products you use on the skin and hair 2-3 days prior to tanning as products that leave a film on the skin may prevent the tan from taking or give patchy results.

1-2 Days before Manicures, pedicures and Spray Tans ensure you feel very Glam and race ready. Ensure the skin is thoroughly exfoliated and moisturised the day prior to tanning, but ensure the skin is completely free of product for Tan, this includes no deodorant! Ensure you wear loose fitted natural fibre clothing a breezy sundress is recommended. Rinse tan off after recommended time in warm water only do not use product on the body for 24 hours.

On Race Day

Ensure your skincare regime includes a waterproof UVA and UVB sunscreen.

Use a primer to prepare the skin for make up, this will increase the wear time and make the skin appear refined.

Remember with applying make up, a daytime makeup should be light and fresh (heavy eye makeup will not look too good after hours in the hot Qld Sun). Using a long wear lip stain ensures your lip colour stays on your lips not on your Champaign glass.

Always take some touch up make up to ensure you look fab all day long! A pair of fold up ballet flats are also a great investment for the races relieve aching feet if you are a little unsure of the comfort of your shoes.

As far as betting goes, I have a (loosing) history of choosing my horses based on their colour scheme, or how much I like the horses name, so probably won’t comment on that!!!

Final piece of advise, try to dink plenty of water… The hot sun and flowing Champaign can lead to dehydration very quickly, this = Hangover and possible regrettable behaviour. Try to leave race day with as much elegance and grace with which you arrived. After years of working at the races I have seen many racetrack beauties turn from gracious to Jersey shore before the race even starts! Water will be your bestie!

Happy Punting!


P.S Please cleanse of your make up when you get home!

Rules to great waxing results…

Before your Waxing Treatment

  • Please ensure hair is not less than ¼- ½ inch long as your waxing appointment will be rescheduled.
  • Throw away your Razor
  • Exfoliate regularly before wax and  (2-3 times per week) in between waxes but not within 3 days after wax  treatment.
  • Trim crazy curlies or long luscious locks but not less than ½ inch (this will prevent unnecessary discomfort.)

At time of Treatment…

  • Ensure you arrive 10 mins prior appointment.
  • Dare to be Bare… after Brazilian waxing we recommend you go commando or at very least wear loose fitting natural fibre clothing and underwear for all waxing treatments this helps prevent irritation and sweating.
  • You may be requested to assist  within your treatment to support the skin, this is to provide you with the most comfortable experience to improve results and minimise pain.
  • Your therapist will wear gloves performing waxing treatments please advise if you have latex or any other product  allergies.
  • We have a great range of post wax homecare to help prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs, soothe the area, and keep skin clean, soft and healthy. It is adviseable to purchase the homecare pack on your first visit.

Post Wax

  • Be aware of S rule within 48 hours of waxing absolutely NO SEX, SAUNA, SWEATING, SWIMMING, SPA and SUN. Choosing to ignore this rule can result in folliculitis (infected follicles), sun burn, rashes, redness, stinging, itching etc.
  • Loose natural fibre clothing is advisable for a couple of days after waxing
  • Ensure Home care use is vigilant, as it does nothing sitting in your cupboard but take up space.
