Derma Pen 4 with Beau Bliss Redlands

From a younger age I have always battled with pigmentation on my forehead and on the top of my lip. Over the years I have tried lots of different treatments to, which have helped to fade it slightly but nothing hugely noticeable, until now. Derma Pen 4 has been a blessing for it. I even noticed a huge change within days are my first treatment with Sandra. I have also loved the improvement on my scar I have in between my eyes. It’s honestly amazing how good this treatment is and how quickly you see results.

I first had Derma Pen 4 just over 4months a go. I have since been having it every 4-6 weeks. Sandra is a qualified beauty therapist with nearly 10 years experience. Earlier this year Sandra completed her Derma Pen 4 training and has since been performing the treatment on a large majority of her clientele.

About the procedure…

Firstly you have a consultation with Sandra, to talk about your skin in depth, she asks you what you would like to achieve and then she will share her recommendations. She also takes a good look at your skin as well after a cleanse.

The procedure in total takes about 45minutes. You have your face cleansed, Sandra then dons sterile gloves and commences the treatment. I had the treatment with no numbing cream. The Derma Pen 4 is uncomfortable but not painful for me, then only place I really felt a bit of pain was on my nose. Sandra clearly explains the treatment she is doing as she is going. Keeping you in the loop of all the benefits.

You get a cooling mask post treatment. Then you are sent home with a good sunscreen and recovery cream.

Dermapen Treatments are highly effective for treating hyperpigmentation. The treatment creates upto 1,920 fractional microchannels per second into the skin to promote a more balances and normalized cellular function. As melanocytes (pigment producing cells) are directly targeted, a repair and corrective process encourages an even skin tone creating a radiant appearance.

Our skin’s renewal process slows down as we age, so Dermapen Treatments are the safe, natural alternative to fight the aging process. 

What’s more, Dermapen treatments naturally work from within. The natural wound-healing responses created by microneedling treatments will kick start the production of collagen and elastin production (Dermapenworld).

Pollution and lifestyle habits also take their toll on our skin.

Here are the results of my progress so far.

Results 4 months in, my pigmentation is fading, my lines under my eyes are less dominant and my skin isn’t as dry around my nose. Plus my skin tone is more even all over.

Packing my hospital bag for my first pregnancy was very exciting. I Pinterested all these hospital bag lists and I was so excited with what I packed into my suitcase, ready for my babies arrival. When the time came, my husband grabbed the bags and brought them to hospital with us. I thought I was so organised, but boy was I wrong. I had really over packed! I had so much stuff that I actually couldn’t find what I needed, when I needed it. I had to much of the stuff I didn’t need and not enough of what I actually really needed. I was so overwhelmed. So I made a promise to myself that next time I would pack a little lighter and bring more of the essentials rather than all the extras.

I have put together a list of what I need and wished I had put in the first time, for both my hospital bag and my babies nappy bag.

Happily Ever After – 09.09.2016

On the 9th September 2016 I married my soul mate, David. David and I have been together since December 2011. We met at a festival in Brisbane City and shortly started dating not long after. We got engaged in April 2015 and had our darling little boy in October 2015.


The wedding ceremony was held at Macarthur Park Chapel and Gardens and the cocktail style reception was held at Pacific Resort Cleveland  function room. The chapel is 96 years old and was the perfect location with the surrounding lake and bushlands to hold our dream wedding. Karen the owner of the gardens was an absolute delight to work with, making our day extra special. Pacific Resort function room was decorated by the gorgeous Carol from Creatively Bespoke Wedding & Events and she did such a beautiful job. I loved the set up of the bridal table, round tables and bar stools for guests. A huge thank you to Sarah from Pacific Resort Functions you were an absolute pleasure to work with. I LOVED staying in the penthouse above the Raby Bay marina, it just added that special touch to the whole experience.


My lashes and brows for the day were done by the gorgeous Emma from @emjsskinandbeauty. Emma has seven years experience with lashes and brow shaping and I had the “deluxe” set for my wedding day.

The hair and make up were done by the talented girls from @stepnouthairandbody. I had Bec do our hair and @alannahpritchardmakeup do my make up for myself and my bridesmaids. They do great wedding hair and make up packages. I felt very relaxed with the girls and we all shared lots of laughs.


Our flowers were all created by the beautiful Amy from @daisyandcoflowers. Amy was very prompt and so easy to liaise with. She did a wonderful job. She made me a gorgeous flower crown and I loved the bouquets she created! So talented.

Our wedding cake was created by my lovely friend Kate. It taste as delicious as it looked. I wish it was a never ending cake. Love her work. Very talented! That cake was certainly made with love. So sad we ate all the spare cake from the freezer! 

My photographer was a close friend Catherine Stonebridge who has taken all my family and maternity photos. I am so pleased with what she has shown me so far. I cannot wait to see them all! I felt so comfortable with Catherine and she made David and I feel completely at ease in front of the camera. 


Our wedding videographer was created by wedding photographer Danielle D’Arcy. I love watching the highlights from our big day.
