I am going to keep this post brief today because I want to you, my fellow beauties and kind folk, to act on this great campaign.

We all know how much we love our beauty products, and if you are anything like me, you will sometimes feel that the money you spend on lip gloss and perfume could be going to a much more worthy cause. I definitely feel the guilt (occasionally) so when a beauty company steps out and decides to help a good cause with no extra expense to us consumers, I am elated.

In my true lazy, careless style, I won’t bore you with too much details but let me start by saying water is something we all take for granted. I know I do and I know many others do as well. I personally choose not to drink water because I do not like the taste. Could you imagine me saying that to a poor child who doesn’t even have access to water? What about a person who has only been able to drink mud or sewerage their entire life? I am sure I would be shot …. if they had a gun. If only there were a way for me to give my share of water to those people I would do it. Thanks to Giorgio Armani, I now can.

One of my favourite fragrances for myself is Acqua Di Gioia, and on a man I LOVE Acqua Di Gio, both by Giorgio Armani. Now when I buy either of those fragrances I will be giving drinking water to those who desperately need it, and I want you to join me.

How Does It Work

Head into any department store or authorised Giorgio Armani retailer and purchase a bottle of Acqua Di Gioia or Acqua Di Gio. Each bottle you buy gives a community access to 100 litres of drinking water. Buy 2 bottles, you give 200 litres. Easy.

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
