Posts in Foamingly Clean Facial Wash

First and most importantly, The Plastic Diaries turns the big 1 today. Yes, on 26 May 2010, we went live with the first proper blog post. I don’t count anything really before that time because it was more of an online personal rambling about my nose job, and I think only my mother read it. Anyway, today is The Plastic Diaries’ first birthday. WOOOOOO!

In all seriousness though, reaching the 1 year mark is a HUGE deal to me. I won’t go into it all now but I just want to say I will have a very special post on Monday (May 30) to celebrate, and it will involve the BIGGEST giveaway we have done. You will not want to miss it.

Now onto today’s post. It has been quite some time since I last updated you on competitions or giveaways that are happening around the web world, so I thought I would delay normal programming for a day and sneak in this little post. Continue Reading

By now I am sure you have all heard the whispers and maybe even seen some reviews of the new, and first ever, Benefit skincare range b.right! Radiant Skincare. Well today it goes on sale in Australia, so that means you can actually head into a retailer near you and try/buy the products you have heard about.

If you have heard nothing about this new line than you are in the right place because today I am going to share with you my thoughts on two of the products. My intentions are however to give more of the products a try so there will be more reviews of this range coming soon-ish.

Why A Skincare Line?

First things first, what is this line about? So after decades of creating amazing cosmetics and some noteworthy ‘skincare’ items (such as You Rebel, a tinted moisturiser with SPF) the brainy whiz kids currently at the Benefit helm, Maggie & Annie Ford Danielson, decided it was time to give their customers what they have been asking for. A skincare line that looks after our skin and works just as well when used in combination with make-up (something a lot of skincare doesn’t do).

Most of you may not be aware that Benefit is owned by Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton (aka LVMH). The parent company owns many brands, including other beauty companies such as Dior, so this has allowed Maggie & Annie a chance to access some of the best the world has to offer when it comes to skincare.

The Range

The debut skincare line is quite large, in my opinion. I love the packing and think Benefit have NAILED it. The caps look like corks and the heavy glass jars look great to display. This is a collection I would be happy to have on show.

  • Foamingly Clean Facial Wash – AU $38 / US $21
  • Refined Finish Facial Polish – AU $40 / US $22 / UK £17.50
  • Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ – AU $45 / US $28 / UK £19.50

All fields look to be covered, but the one thing I am finding conflicting Continue Reading
