With Spring just over three weeks away, we're starting to think about exposed skin. And when we think exposed skin, we think firming and tightening, please! For this week's cash or credit, we're honing in on firming creams for all different parts of your body — whether your problem area is thighs and bottom or breasts or hands, there's a cream in here that will help. But the real key to using firming creams is consistency and the way you apply. Most have active ingredients, like caffeine for example, which aids circulation and drainage. Remember to apply in a firm (funny that) circular motions, and try to do this for a few minutes at a time. Ready to get firm? Let's go!

We've tracked down five body butters that soften and smooth skin with their buttery texture but sink in easily providing long-lasting hydration.

With breast cancer affecting a staggering 1 in 9 women under the age of 85 in Australia, it's likely that you'll have either been personally affected by the illness or known someone who has been.

From tools you'll need for your very own at-home facial to do-it-all face creams, there's something for every budget, every level of effort you're willing to make, and every skin type. Check it out and tell us your fave buys now!
