One of the downsides to using a fake tan is that they can become rather unappealing as they fade or we want to remove them.

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries sharing her review of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Makeup Remover Wipes

Bioderma Sensibio h20 Micelle Cleansing Water is a popular choice for makeup removal worldwide. Little did I know that this makeup remover was also available in the convenient and handy wipes format.

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries sharing the contents of her Beautylish Lucky Bag 2017

The Beautylish Lucky Bag is a wonderful annual tradition produced by global online beauty retailer Beautylish. You may have heard the hype on Instagram and from your favourite influencers about the Beautylish Lucky Bag, an annual ‘lucky dip’ of sorts that allows you to pay a once-off price to get a mystery delivery of beauty products in value well exceeding the price you pay. It’s what I call Gambling for Beauty Addicts. It’s taken me until 2017 to try it because I’m not much of a gambler. I unboxed the contents of my Lucky Bag live on Instagram (make sure you are following me to see every unboxing as they happen!) but if you missed it you are in luck because I will reveal to you what I got in mine, and my review of the entire Beautylish #LuckyBag2017 experience.  Continue Reading
