The Norwex Lysere Haircare range is beautiful!

Lysere HairCare Collection

OK I am in LOVE with the Norwex Lysere Care Collection… honestly I am SO fussy when it comes to what I use on my hair. It needs to have no nasties (deal breaker) but also lots of hydrating goodness… well… hello curls. The deep conditioner and mask is seriously crazy good. “No cap” my teenager would say… haha (ie. I’m not joking!). The protecting spray… LOOOVE.

I love this hair collection SO much! It’s soooo good for my curls.

Our hair care line is salon quality, vegan, plant based and without all the nasty chemicals! It was designed by a multiple award winning salon hair product designer and designed for all hair types… regular, curly, straight, bleached, damaged, dry and colour treated hair.

You NEED this product in your life… think silky, nourished hair, that is so, so soft. Curly hair peeps RAVE about it for their curls too, for me it defrizzes and creates curls- especially after the conditioning mask treatment. I LOVE the conditioning treatment so much (especially coupled with the Norwex Hair Wrap) and the hair protecting spray is beautiful.

This is what some people have shared about it…

“It’s been years since I finally found a shampoo & conditioner that doesn’t make my hair feel heavy and greasy.” Annalise

“I freaking love it! My hairdresser can’t believe the quality of my hair since using it!” Betty (bleached hair)

“I especially love the deep conditioner and mask- I adore how soft and hydrated it feels afterwards, and my frizzy hair becomes curly!” Rachelle

Each product in our Lysere hair range is:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten free
  • Paraben free
  • Formaldehyde free
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Not tested on animals
  • Synthetic
  • Fragrance free
  • Synthetic dye free
  • Contains plant derived ingredients

Hear from a professional stylist about her opinion on what makes the Lysere Nourishing Hair Care products a must-have in your personal care routine.

Our collection contains:

LYSERE NOURISHING SHAMPOO: Salon-quality performance, with no nasties. Hydrating, nutrient-rich, naturally scented with essential oils

LYSERE NOURISHING CONDITIONER: This conditioner detangles, hydrates and conditions your hair to ensure it is shiny, manageable and healthy

LYSERE DEEP CONDITIONER AND MASK: Ultra-hydrating for brittle, dry or damaged hair. Use once or twice weekly for a deep treatment, leaving on for 5-10 minutes, or if especially dry, daily as a conditioner

LYSERE HAIR PROTECTING SPRAY: This spray provides lightweight protection against pollution, heat damage and UV rays for stronger, shinier, hydrated hair.

…These four products are available separately, or in a collection.

Complementing product, the Norwex Hair Wrap… use in conduction with the hair mask and after washing your hair.

I take the Hair Wrap EVERYWHERE I travel. This photo was taken in Europe on a FREE Mediterranean Cruise I earned through Norwex 🙂 I LOVE IT!

The Norwex hair wrap is hard to beat!

OH MY.. THE HAIR WRAP….. WHO LOVES IT? It comes on holidays with me! It is seriously is amazing (and so good for any deep conditioning treatment). Made from our antibacterial microfibre. It absorbs 70% of the moisture from your hair in 10 minutes.

This means a few things:

1. You don’t go to bed with your hair wet (or as wet) which reduces the dust mites in your pillow that thrive in wet and warm conditions

2. You have less time with the blow-dryer on your hair which in turn improves the condition of your hair over time.

3. It can reduce hair breakages.

I love this customer’s testimony about the Hair Wrap:

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the products. I have very thick, long hair which is always very difficult to dry, and I also have a chronic condition which makes blow-drying my hair very tiresome. The Norwex head towel is very absorbent which means I spend less time blow-drying my hair afterwards. I’m really happy with the quality of both the head towel and the body cloth which I purchased from you, I’m glad I bought them!” Rani

The Norwex Counter Cloths… how are they different to kitchen cloths?

NEW PRODUCT ALERT! Get rid of paper towel!

Vanilla, Slate & Mushroom Counter Cloths

Available now & made with recycled plastic. I love the way Norwex are helping improve our world by using plastic and turning it into something reusable and SO HELPFUL!

These ultra-absorbent, reusable cloths feature a unique new weave to quickly pick up spills and messes in the kitchen, bathroom – really anywhere! Constructed from Norwex Microfibre made from 50% recycled materials in the same size as a half-sheet of paper towel, each set contains almost a whole recycled plastic bottle (500 ml), so you’re helping to clean up the world every time you quickly clean up!

Use them for…

  • Wiping your benches
  • Replace your paper towel
  • Sticky fingers and faces
  • Smaller size- so great for children to help
  • Pop a pack in the car
  • Use as you would a napkin
  • Children’s lunch boxes
  • Use them for quick wipe ups in the bathroom
  • Cleaning up spills
  • Use them camping

SOOOO…. the biggest questions I am getting is…

counter cloths marine, teal and sea mist.jpg

Marine, Teal & Sea mist Counter Cloths

HOW ARE THE COUNTER CLOTHS DIFFERENT TO THE KITCHEN CLOTHS?

Firstly, how are they the same?

  • They both contain BacLock®* in the cloth – our micro silver antibacterial agent – goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odours from bacteria, mould and mildew growth within the cloth within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.
  • Norwex Microfibre has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface with only water when following the proper care and use instructions.
  • Helpful for wiping up spills and cleaning on the go

Secondly, how are they different?

  • Each set of three Counter Cloths is made from 50% recycled materials and constructed of 0.7 recycled plastic bottles (500 ml).
  • They are smaller than the kitchen cloth and each cloth is half the size of a full-size paper towel.
  • A super size for wiping fingers and faces.
  • Purchase in a set of three so you’ll always have one handy
  • Quick-drying so they’re ready to use again soon.
  • Unique new weave absorbs spills fast.
  • Use in the kitchen and bathroom to reduce your paper towel
  • They don’t have a tag

The awesome COUNTER CLOTH BOX

Every cloth needs a home – like our exclusive, Norwex-branded Counter Cloth Box, shaped like a cosy house! Set contains all six colours of Counter Cloths and keeps them within easy reach on kitchen and bathroom countertops for a quick, grab-and-go clean! While supplies last! Up to 12 Counter Cloths fold for easy storage in the Counter Cloth Box, so they’re always convenient when you need them. GRAB YOURS HERE. One of our Norwex consultants also had a great idea *fold a grey all purpose kitchen cloth in the house for your quick greasy clean ups (e.g. food splatters on your stove top or splash back).

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 5.43.14 amMeighan Hopper a US leader has done a great video showing and describing the counter cloths, if you would like a watch it is HERE.

She also had the idea of using a medium sized sink mat under the Box & also drying the one in use on top of the house! She describes the counter cloths as being like “the body cloth packs for the kitchen”. I love that 🙂 So just like the body pack you use one- when you feel like it is dirty you pop it in the wash and grab the next one from the pack- same concept with the counter cloths!

I hope that helps! If you were wanting to BUY some, head over to my website and try some in your home!

Have a great day!

Why I love the Norwex Fresh Produce Wash so much!

fresh produce wash and veggie scrub cloth.pngCan I tell you how much I am loving the fresh produce wash at the moment?! Food tastes better, looks better and I love to know that I am getting off pesticides and other gross stuff off my fruit and veggies.

Have you tried it yet?!

My Top Reasons why I love it…

  • It get rid of pesticide, oils, residues, chemicals, bacteria and dirt.
  • Food lasts longer in the fridge
  • The wash is biodegradable, non toxic, plant based and free from phosphates, sulfates and parabens.
  • It doesn’t have an aftertaste (yeah!) In fact I think food tastes nicer.
  • It lasts 1 week in the fridge (Handy tip: before you store carefully pour into another container leaving behind the gross stuff that sinks to the bottom)
  • Our family aren’t ingesting chemicals and do you know what? Since switching 100% to the wash I’ve noticed a change in behaviour (an improvement) in one of my children who is VERY susceptible to additives and preservatives.
  • You just use 15mls and it makes up 500mls  of solution, do the bottle lasts a long time.

How do you use it?

You mix up 15mls and 500mls of water

You can mix up the solution into a bottle and spray, wait 30 seconds & rinse

Soak fruits and vegetables for 1-2 minutes then leave to dry or dry with a the Norwex fruit and veggie scrub cloth (Handy tip: if you are doing a large amount simply make up two bowls, so you have one soaking while you are washing the other)

You swish around leafy vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower and then rinse.

Here is a picture of a piece of broccoli being washed with just water (notice the repelling) and then after soaking for a minute… note the water! A-MAY-ZING!!

Norwex Travel Enviro Cloths to the rescue…

2018-08-17 18.08.30
Norwex Travel Pack (5 mini enviro cloths)


There have been MANY times a simple travel enviro in my handbag has come to the rescue!

I remember the time all the cafe chairs were wet & one single highly woven, absorbent (AMAZING) travel enviro wiped up ALL the water. Yes ALL the water. If I had little kids still I am sure I would have appreciated it at parks too- you know that annoying wet slide that makes your kidlets bottoms wet! Wiping the trolley at the supermarket & cleaning the car interior are other uses I regularly use it aswell. Have a read here about an early post about the travel enviros cleaning off mould from our Venetians. Of course this travel enviro is just a baby version of our AWESOME enviro cloth so has the silver, the highly woven microfibre & cleans just aswell.

I reflect on one of my recent hosts who had been cleaning her house for two weeks with 1 single travel enviro (I like to give a booking gift when someone books a party) she had been doing her glass, counters, shower, fingers, tables & more. I wish I had it on video when she had the BIG enviro on her hand cleaning the window she was so excited with all the extra cloth power! haha.

“I have slept like a LOG for a whole week thanks to this product! Rubbing it into my temples and all over my neck and shoulders is proving miraculous, because I have awful trouble getting off to sleep, and staying asleep once I get there. I always have. But this week has been AMAZING. I wake up, morning after morning, totally astonished at how I slept like a log, and so I wake up feeling properly refreshed. I used it tonight as a chest and back rub for my daughter who has the flu. It took away all the achy pains in her back, and cleared her stuffed nose, so she’s dropped straight off to sleep (and she, like me, usually struggles most nights to get to sleep). And I’m so delighted to have a natural chest rub – I hate all the chemicals in vicks. So this is one happy mumma!” Catherine.

Where can I get it from?

You can buy it online at my online store, who would like to try some?
