Ere Perez Organic Almond Oil Brow Pencil

In Australia we don’t get many of the good things that come out of Mexico. We get Corona, Jarritos (pineapple is my favourite!) and the little fire cracker that is Ere Perez. Ere was born in Mexico and moved to Australia 15 years ago, but it was exactly 10 years ago that Ere developed her self-titled natural cosmetic line. Ere’s family have worked with natural therapies for generations, and her grandfather still practices natural medicine using the healing properties of plants, so it was bound to happen that Ere would end up working in this field as well. However, it was when she arrived in Australia that she was inspired to create a makeup range that used natural ingredients – marrying her family practice with a passion of her own.

Something I love about Ere Perez is that she has a great skill for taking an every day essential beauty product, such as an eyebrow pencil, and finding a way to create it using only premium natural ingredients. Almond Oil is used in a lot of her products, but I wouldn’t have thought it would be useful in a brow pencil. I put it to the test and reveal my results in this review.  Continue Reading

I have a little sneaky peaky for you!! I don’t think I have mentioned this on the blog yet, but I have a strange addiction to swimwear. Even when I hate my body shape (which is often!), I can’t help but buy fabulous swimwear. Being in Australia, I am lucky enough to have access to some of the most amazing swimwear in the world. I swear, Australians are the best swimwear makers. One brand I have loved since they launched is Baku Australia. Today I have some preview snaps of the brand new Summer 2013 collection.  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
