There is no denying that buying beauty products from international retailers is extremely lucrative to many people, especially those located in Australia and New Zealand. While I can carry on about how I like shopping at Mecca Cosmetica and Adore Beauty (and oh boy do I love those stores, both of which also ship internationally!!) the fact of the matter is that not everything I want can be bought in Australia, or for a price I can afford. This is where buying from international stores comes in, and in particular, the big USA department stores.

Why Am I Writing This Post?

I want to be up front and say that supporting your local economy is very important. I know that, you know that. I am not encouraging you to desert your local industry and only buy internationally. This post is merely a guide to help those who perhaps already buy from overseas retailers and are frustrated at not knowing which brands can and cannot be purchased.

One store I shop from a lot is Nordstrom. They have a lot of clothing brands that I have never heard of before but are perfect for me. But, a few times I have tried to add beauty products to my basket only at checkout it says those items aren’t able to be shipped to Australia. This is something I have experienced on many sites, so in frustration, I set out to do this post.  Continue Reading

The swatching of pretty colours, opening funky packaging and the rewarding feeling of carrying a little bag of goodness out of the store. Wow, I just realised how much of an addict I really am.

You may not being buying something for someone quite as addicted as I am, but these 5 gifts are perfect for a special person in your life no matter how big or small your budget. 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
