ECOCARE Organic Apple Honey Facial Cleansing Wipes

When I see something labelled “Organic Apple with Honey” I instantly think of breakfast foods. Oatmeal, porridge, granola, pancakes …. I think of anything excluding skincare but that is the very ingredients Ecocare use in their natural facial wipes. The labelling says they are biodegradable, hypoallergenic and fragrance free so they appealed to me, but I wasn’t sure how I would feel about using breakfast foods as a facial cleanser. Nevertheless, I put aside my hesitations and now I have a review for you.  Continue Reading

It is starting to warm up in Sydney, Australia and with summer not far away I decided to switch to a lighter body wash. I never used to be a sweaty person but as I am ageing I am finding it doesn’t take much to draw a sweat. Either that or the globe really is getting so much hotter than before. Maybe it is a little from Column A and a little from Column B. Nevertheless, today I am giving you my review of Restore Body Wash by Australian brand Innoxa.  Continue Reading

The hair removal posts are about to begin again as the southern hemisphere prepare for summer. Do you remember how much I raved about my Schick Intuition Pomegranate earlier this year? Well just in time for summer, Schick have released another hair-removing wonder.

What I Say ….

  • Easily the most impressive thing about this razor is the ‘natural’ elements. The packaging is eco-friendly and 100% recyclable.
  • The razor kit comes Continue Reading
Remember that itchy skin drama I told you about here, well I am happy to announce that my skin seems to be on the mend since starting use of this product.

The shower gel is very light and has a great scent that kind of reminds me of fresh cotton coming out of the dryer. Ok maybe not exactly like that but you get my point, its fresh and homely. The scent lasts while your washing but I am glad that it disappears once you rinse it off. I personally do not like a lingering body wash scent if I am going to be wearing perfume, it just confuses my nose. Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  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
