SunSense Lip Balm SPF 50+

We all know the damage sun can do to our skin. Not only can it burn us and leave immediate physical damage but it can prove damaging longterm by producing cancer cells, age spots and wrinkles. One area of our body that is not exempt from this damage, but most people seem to ignore, is our lips.

Protecting your lips from sun damage is just as important as any other part of your body. If you want to keep your lips shapley, plump and cancer free the best way to achieve this is with a Lip Balm that includes a high protection factor. SunSense is a trusted brand in Australia for keeping our skin sun safe. I bought their SPF 50+ lip balm this summer to see if it can do the job for my pout. My review reveals if you can trust it too and if it’s pleasant to use:  Continue Reading

I don’t get pimples very often but when I do they can be a monster. I mostly get pimples from stress, which means they appear at really inopportune times, which also means I want them gone FAST.

The Azclear Action products are specifically designed for breakouts of pimples, blackheads, acne and rosacea. 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
