Rosehip by Essano Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser review on The Plastic Diaries

A gentle facial cleanser is an important staple in my bathroom. I love using skincare full of active ingredients but occasionally it needs a break from fighting the war on aging, and that’s when I turn to a gentle basic cleanser. The Rosehip by Essano Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser isn’t something I would normally be drawn to but with the buzz of Rosehip still going strong I figured I would give it a go.

I never put too much faith in a skincare product without any actives so my hopes for gentle, basic cleansers is to avoid any irritation, over drying or excess oil production, cleaning off makeup and keeping my skin clear. Does Rosehip by Essano meet my demands? My review tells all. Continue Reading

Essano Rosehip Hand Cream review

Just because the weather has warmed up doesn’t mean I can afford to stop using hand cream. Keeping my nails healthy and my hands soft is easy if I stick to regular hand cream use but in the warmer months I look for something light that hydrates quickly without any residue left behind. The new Rosehip by Essano hand cream uses their key ingredient, certified organic rosehip, as the miracle cure along with shea butter and jojoba oil. Will it be right a summer essential? My review tells the story.  Continue Reading

Natural Instinct Body Lotion review

A good body lotion is as important in fighting aging as a sunscreen. Ok, that’s kind of a lie, nothing is more important than sunscreen but dehydrated skin does rapidly speed up aging so body lotion is quite important. If you’re anything like me than you’re probably super picky about body lotion – the smell, the texture, the level of hydration – it’s nearly impossible to find the right balance. Then there’s the ingredients, of which I try to avoid nasties because it’s being applied to my largest organ (yep, skin is your largest organ!). I hoped Natural Instinct’s Body Lotion would be my answer ….. but is it? My review has the answers.  Continue Reading

Best new beauty products october 2014

October. It came, and now it’s practically gone. We still have Halloween to celebrate and it will kick off what is officially known as the madness of holiday season. Are you ready for it? Do you have everything you need? Do you have everything you want? NEVER, we know there is always new things to need and want, that’s why I do this round-up of brilliant new products each month.

Over 70 products new to launch in October landed on my desk and it was a tough gig picking my favourites, as it is every month. Surprisingly it was the Body category that had the most newbies but I guess this is expected as the temperature warms up in Australia and we start to bare our skin. Which were the most exciting of them all? I reveal them to you now. Continue Reading

Aromafloria Spa Foot and Leg Spray

Sore feet isn’t something I talk about often on this blog but the truth is that I have extremely painful feet and it only takes a few minutes of walking before I’m in agony. Despite the pain, I do try to walk as much as possible and when I’m travelling I will opt for a walking route at every opportunity. I picked up the Aromafloria For Feet’s Sake spray after one of these many walking trips in the USA in hopes it would ease my burning, inflamed and tired feet. Did it do the trick? My review answers the question.  Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
