Today's giveaway is from Gypsy Rose - an Australian range of hair care and skin care products developed over the past 20yrs by Karen Ellis, who is a qualified Hair Colour Specialist and accredited Aromatherapist. So if anyone can make an amazing shampoo and skincare range, Karen can.

I first tried this shampoo, and was giddy with excitement to see kombucha in the ingredients (you all know how much I love my buche juice), and when Karen came up to visit Cairns I got the low down on which products would be best for my skin (and meet the gorgeous soul behind all this).

I fell in love.

I'm happy to let you all know that all Gypsy Rose products are:

  • Sulphate free
  • Synthetic emulsifier free
  • Propolene glycol free
  • Paraben free
  • Coco betaine free

Everything is made using raw ingredients in there unadulterated state - cold pressed oils, 100% essential oils, fruits, vinegars, teas & purified rainwater.

Their ingredients are not tested on animals, are GMO Free and Gluten Free (except the Leave-in Conditioners that contain wheatgerm oil).

HANDMADE in Australia from Australian and imported ingredients (only where they had no choice). And they are 100% Australian owned.


  • 200 ml lavender body/hand wash  
  • BONUS: You also get samples of their Rosemary 2 in 1 shampoo, Paw-paw Carrot & Orange facial soap, and the Top to Toe balm (this is my all time favourite – smells incredible!!) with an educational dvd and product leaflet.

  1. Well, it's not all that strange - however as I am renovating, I am forever getting paint stuck in my hair and seem to carry it around for days!

  2. Well thankfully not much! I have had bird poo 'stuck' in my hair though. I remember Dad trying to wash it out at a family function when I was little. Then all the kids spent the rest of the day with napkins on their heads!!

  3. mmm let me think... it could be the styling brush... no that was predictable when you're as unco as me,
    maybe it was the sticky fly paper (don't even ask) and yes you can still buy it.
    The strangest thing in my hair ( although not all stuck, just the really keen ones) would have to be native bees,
    whenever I go camping or bushwalking they always swarm my hair it's even worse when its not native bees.
