This year has already flown by and it has already been over a week since my birthday (which felt like minutes ago). As usual, I am a little delayed in posting this particular feature but again, for a good reason which I will tell you shortly.

Birthday’s are usually such a downer for me (the whole aging thing) but this year I was pleasantly surprised by an offer to have my hair dyed and styled. As much as I try to stay grumpy for the entire 24 hour birthday period, a trip to the salon always puts a smile on my face. Damn!

The Product

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
