Fashion With A Conscience: Ray-Ban Special Edition

Ray-Ban has released a Special Edition Indigenous Wayfarer in collaboration with the OneSight Foundation, as part of an initiative to improve the eye health of those in remote Australian communities.

The initiative specifically targets Indigenous Australians for whom blindness is six times more likely than other Australians.

The sunglasses feature the artwork of an upcoming Indigenous artist, Saretta Fielding, whose design was selected from a number of artists who submitted their designs as part of a competition held by Luxottica.

SHESAID attended the launch at the Australian Museum, where the Special Edition Wayfarers will be displayed as part of the Indigenous collection. The launch coincided with World Sight Day – the international event dedicated to raising awareness of avoidable blindness and vision loss.

It featured the entertainment of former Australian Idol winner, Casey Donovan, and was attended by an intimate crowd including the famous face of the new Wayfarers, supermodel, Samantha Harris.

The sunglasses will be available at OPSM stores from late October, with $50 from each sale to be donated to OneSight.

Beauty Lowdown – The latest in the best beauty products

Hair Raise

Need a lift in the hair department? We say yes to Charles Worthington that is. He knows what is going on with his reformulated Big Hair range – for the big hair lover in you. Smells divine and so uplifting! Try the Volumising Mousse, ($12.95). This hot product is so easy to use with its extra-thin nozzle you’ll find it even easier to get into the base of the hair for that much needed lift!In Your Dreams

This is definitely for those of us who spend a small fortune (and are happy to do so) on their beauty routine. This will be a trifle for you types but for a mere $605, Guerlain’s Serenissima Absolute Skincare Concentrate is the word on ultra, ultra skin care. This product is a high-performance moisturiser that contains their famed blue/gold essence. This product will apparently suit anyone who wants to prevent or even deter any signs of ageing. Put simply it replenishes the moisture content in the skin by smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. We reckon anything that slows the ageing process is well worth it!

Issey perfect

If you are a committed Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey devotee then you are going to love his long-awaited bodycare line. Check out his Soothing Night Fragrance ($100). Rub this all over your body before you crawl into bed and you are promised a restful and sweet scented sleep. Can’t ask for more than that can you?

The eyes have it

Haven’t you always been told that your eyes are the windows to your soul? If this is the truth, then why not splurge a little on eye care. You’d better hurry and grab Olay’s brand new Revitalizing Eye Gel, ($16.99). This little jar of magic contains provitamin B5, cucumber and witch hazel extracts, which will leave the skin around your eyes looking smooth and wrinkle free.

Get Scrubbing

The golden rule in when it comes to applying fake tan is to scrub beforehand. Scrubbing leaves the skin clean and will ensure its suppleness and softness stays even after the fake tan is applied. We suggest Crabtree & Evelyn’s Reviv Salt & Honey Scrub, ($19.95). It literally leaves your skin smooth as silk and smelling exactly like honeycomb. Almost good enough to eat!
