Best new beauty products Dec 2013

As 2013 comes to a close we are squeezing in one last month of new beauty launches that gained our interest. December is often a slow month for new launches as the focus turns to holiday gifting and repromoting of earlier releases, and this year was no different. Nevertheless, there were still a number of standout beauty products that got me salivating this month.

Take a look at our top new beauty buys and let us know what took your fancy this month. Continue Reading

It is never too early to care for your skin, and I mean never. Many people usually wait until they have something they don’t like about their skin before looking for something to solve their problem, but like most things in life prevention is usually the best solution. The new Anew Aqua Youth line from Avon works follows that manta.

Targeted at consumers in their 20’s, Anew Aqua Youth is designed to keep facial skin fit and healthy. The line was included as one of my favourite new beauty products to launch in October, and today I am reviewing the face cleanser for you.  Continue Reading

It is Halloween month and my most favourite time of the year to see spooky makeup looks and ghoulish nails. Other than Halloween though, the beauty front will be a little quiet for new launches this October. There were just over 50 products keeping me busy to consider for my monthly favourites but I got through them and I have come up with these top picks.

Don’t forget to tell me what has taken your fancy this month! Continue Reading

Over the last couple of months three brands have released brand new skincare products that could literally change the face of skincare. As I am such a lover of good skin, I wanted to share with you these new products so you can stay up to date on the latest developments.

If there is one industry that is constantly improving itself, it is skincare. A staggering amount of research and development goes into creating a skincare product, and not just new ones, even ones that have been on the market for years. Finding better ingredients and new delivery methods seems to be the one thing skincare scientists concentrate on the most. In my opinion, La Prairie, Avon and Skin Doctors should be very proud of their new developments.

Let’s take a closer look.

La Prairie – Cellular Power Infusion

One brand that will never cease to amaze me is La Prairie. Every single one of their products I have tried have made me fall head over heals in love. The new serum set is the first release in what will be a new category for La Prairie, Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
