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. I spotted the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes during an emergency trip to a pharmacy in Paris when I was struck down with a killer flu. As usual, I go in for medicine and I come out with beauty products. No shock there.

Do the wipes work as well as the original micelle water solution? Are they any better than other makeup removal wipes? My review tells you whether these are worth your attention.  Continue Reading

Simple Spotless Rapid Action Spot Zapper

Pimples don’t stop making themselves present just because you turn 25. In fact, I believe I’ve had more pimples as an adult than I ever had as a pre-teen or teenager. Stress, diet, hormones and environmental changes are something that have contributed greatly to my recent season of breakouts. I have a pretty solid daily skincare regime but when the occasional breakout rears its ugly head I don’t go changing my entire routine. I break out a spot treatment instead.

Simple Skincare’s range expansion now includes blemish fighters. I recently picked up the Spot Zapper as I’m a sucker for trying a new release and the roll-on applicator intrigued me. Has it been combatting my pimples? Read the review below to find out! Continue Reading

Luxe vs Less - Body Conditioners

Using body lotion during Spring-Summer is a tricky time in my life. I don’t like the feeling of lotion on my body in warm weather, and I hate it in hot weather. The feeling of slime running from your skin as you sweat in a blistering, humid Australian summer is not a pleasant experience. My desire to avoid such situation means I will often go without moisturizing at all, even though I know my skin needs it. However, since I discovered in-shower body lotions I no longer have an excuse to avoid skin moisturizing. The only question is, do I need to spend a lot to get a good result?

Today I’m putting two of the biggest in-shower body lotions up against each other. I’m putting the luxe, best-selling Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner from Lush Cosmetics up against Nivea’s new Cocoa Indulging In-Shower Body Lotion. Which is worthy of your pennies? Read on to find out!
