Mesoestetic Dermatological Sun Protection

I started playing with the Mesoestetic sunscreen just before my trip to Bali. The high rated protection against UVA and UVB is exactly what I look for during the sunshine of Spring/Summer but like all sunscreen, each one can look and feel very different. I believe finding the right sunscreen for you is as vital as breathing oxygen, so don’t give up wearing it if you haven’t found one you like the look or feel of.

Mesoestetic is a high-performing cosmeceutical brand. Their professional products are used in skin clinics all over the world but few people know about their home-use products. This sunscreen is from the Home Performance line and a great starting point to get introduced to the brand.  Continue Reading

Sunscreen For Summer Travel

Possibly the one thing that was easy for me to pack for my trip to Bali was sunscreen. I love sunscreen and I use it everyday but going for an island getaway where I know there will be activities such as swimming means I have to factor in more protection than required when I am sitting in my office each day. I took that as my license to bring multiples.

Here are the sunscreens accompanying me on my holiday. Surely half a dozen will cover it?  Continue Reading

Priori Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser with LCA Complex

A gentle cleanser for everyday use is an essential for everyone. No matter what skin type you have, you should have one within easy reach that gently cleanses the skin, removes makeup, and is free of fragrance. Priori’s Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser works on that premise but boasts the power to do a whole lot more as well. Can a gentle everyday face wash improve your skin and help prevent aging? That is the claim and I put it to the test for this review. Continue Reading

O Cosmedics is a fairly new Australian skincare brand which officially launched August 2011. They are 100% Australian owned and made which is always something that makes me proud. The O Cosmedics skincare line is designed to be prescription only and it uses the purest medical grade ingredients combined with the most potent natural ingredients. It is a unique concept and even though the line isn’t massive (about 15 products) but the offering is concise for particular skin needs and concerns. I am reviewing the Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser because antioxidant’s are something we all need, no matter how good your skin is! Continue Reading

You all know how much I love skincare, and none more so than paramedical grade products. One brand that recently came to my attention is Cellnique and for some of my lovely Asian-beauty brand obsessed readers you may very well be familiar with their products. They recently just launched their brand new website and together with Cellnique, we are going to celebrate with a competition. First up, I want to share my thoughts on the new website!  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
