In some circles, Pantene is a dirty word. When I worked in my local hair dressing salon as a teenager I was always told that Pantene was the devil. I was lead to believe that all the things I hate about my hair are because I used Pantene. I have now learnt that is completely false but I still found myself not using Pantene very often. Why? Because it was just too heavy.

I have really fine, straight-ish, fly-away hair so that means it gets oily pretty quick and it always lacks volume. Whenever I used Pantene, my hair would just become weighed down. I loved the silky soft feel but it wasn’t worth it to have to wash my hair everyday.

The new Aqua Light range from Pantene has been launched for people exactly like me. Fine-haired lasses step forward. We have a saviour.

A new look for Pantene’s latest release

What I Say ….

  • Easily the first thing I notice is the fragrance. It is a more subtle version of the signature Pantene scent that I used to love so much, and still do.
  • The packaging is spot on. The shampoo is clear and the water-like images with bubbles on the labels add to the light feel. Continue Reading

This year has already flown by and it has already been over a week since my birthday (which felt like minutes ago). As usual, I am a little delayed in posting this particular feature but again, for a good reason which I will tell you shortly.

Birthday’s are usually such a downer for me (the whole aging thing) but this year I was pleasantly surprised by an offer to have my hair dyed and styled. As much as I try to stay grumpy for the entire 24 hour birthday period, a trip to the salon always puts a smile on my face. Damn!

The Product

Clairol recently launched a new and rather innovative product in their well established Nice ‘n Easy collection, titled Colour Blend Foam. The new foam formula makes blending colour super easy and perfect for hard to reach places. You can use Colour Blend Foam to do a full colour but because of the new unique abilities, it would seem this product could be the ultimate regrowth problem solver. Interest has been peaked.

The Makeover

To really put the regrowth solving solution to the test, I would need to have my hair dyed first. Clearly. Enter hair colour genius, 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
