Lilly Pilly does it right, products for models and girls on the go

playing with iPhone app ShakeitPhoto

My skin is important to me. It helps me book modeling jobs. I might be itty bitty but I think my skin has been my sidekick when it comes to booking work as a model for ad campaigns, magazine editorials and the many jobs I've gained. As a shoe model and body parts model, I am very picky about what I like and don't like when it comes to lotions and creams. Even for my face. I like the lotion to go on quick and absorb fast! I hate rubbing and rubbing the product in. I've used LUSH, St. Ives, NIVEA, Alba, Caswell-Massy creams for my hands and body over the years. Right now I am using Lilly Pilly. My memoir ALMOST 5'4" recently came out in Australia, and was featured in The Sydney Morning Herald and I have been checking out some Australian made products, and Lilly Pilly caught my eye.

Lilly Pilly is a great example of a product that rubs in fast. Here are some reasons why I like it:

When I put on a lotion I don’t want it to take all day to rub into my skin. I like how quickly it melts into my skin.

My hands don’t feel greasy or icky after putting it on.

I notice how my hands look not a few days later, but immediately after I put on the cream. To me, if it is a good cream the results should be right away, obvious; my hands should look clean, sheen, serene, right away. This happened after only a few seconds.

I am using Kakadu Plum which is rich in Vitamin C! I love that!

To me this makes the product a go-to-item for girls on the go, and girls who aspire to be models. :)

I like that you can buy individidual products or giftpacks of the lotion with a body wash to match. And the small 50 ml lotions are cool because they are small enough to bring on an airplane, great to throw in a handbag before a casting, or when I am running around.

As a model that doesn't have the height, I make sure my other assets, my skin especially, are always eye-catching on camera,
