“When you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you look good”

– Kimberly Nissen, The Plastic Diaries founder and editor.

The Plastic Diaries beauty blog goes far beyond your everyday beauty needs. Everything featured on this site addresses our core belief that if you look and feel good you will be the best possible version of yourself. We believe ‘beauty’ means more than just skincare and makeup. We believe beauty is beyond skin deep.

This blog is devoted to everyday women who want to look and feel their absolute best. Our path to realizing this was unconventional, but the result was life changing. The Plastic Diaries was born in 2008 when editor Kimberly Nissen planned her own journey with plastic surgery. Having found no insightful information about the procedure online, Kimberly decided to create a site to record her own experiences and thus make it available for women who do the same research in the future. The Plastic Diaries quickly evolved to focus on all topics of beauty and wellbeing, and now we share our daily experiences with beauty, our quest to be the best version of ourself and the interesting things we learn on the way. There’s tips to get you looking your best, reviews of products you have heard chatter about (and lots you haven’t!), swatches of colour cosmetics, and answers to all your beauty questions (including the questions you never knew you had).

We don’t use big fancy words. We don’t pretend to be scientists or doctors. What we deliver to you is useful, down-to-earth conversation and informed opinions based on real-life experiences. Hot topics, breaking news and well-researched articles educate and entertain you, subtly transforming you into a knowledgeable consumer capable of cutting through the smoke & mirrors the beauty industry relies on dazzling you with to part you with your money. We go beyond the conventional beauty realm to address topics like caring for your mind & body, finding your own style, where to travel for a much-needed break, and which spa you should visit for the ultimate pamper session. We are shopaholics and help our like-minded ladies get the most out of their dollars and their experiences.
