Sephora Makeup and Beauty Haul from USA by Australian beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries Blog

It’s been a long time since I’ve truly been beauty shopping. When I say “beauty haul” I don’t mean going to my local drugstore or Sephora and picking up a mascara or lip balm. When I beauty haul, I HAUL! One of my absolute favourite places to do that is Sephora in the USA.

I haven’t been to the USA since 2014 so I was well overdue for a Sephora.com haul. When my cousin told me he was coming to visit me from New York I jumped at the opportunity to get some goodies. I actually had an outstanding balance on a gift card I got years ago so I had to use that up anyway. It might sound silly but it’s a small way that I can still feel connected to the country and people I have grown to love so very much.

So what did I buy? I’ll reveal it to you but I’ll admit I regret not getting more. I’m currently in the process of a massive office cull so I was trying to be reserved and not get anything as an impulsive purchase. These are items I had on my want list for a really long time.  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
