Posts in Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton

By now I am sure you have all heard the whispers and maybe even seen some reviews of the new, and first ever, Benefit skincare range b.right! Radiant Skincare. Well today it goes on sale in Australia, so that means you can actually head into a retailer near you and try/buy the products you have heard about.

If you have heard nothing about this new line than you are in the right place because today I am going to share with you my thoughts on two of the products. My intentions are however to give more of the products a try so there will be more reviews of this range coming soon-ish.

Why A Skincare Line?

First things first, what is this line about? So after decades of creating amazing cosmetics and some noteworthy ‘skincare’ items (such as You Rebel, a tinted moisturiser with SPF) the brainy whiz kids currently at the Benefit helm, Maggie & Annie Ford Danielson, decided it was time to give their customers what they have been asking for. A skincare line that looks after our skin and works just as well when used in combination with make-up (something a lot of skincare doesn’t do).

Most of you may not be aware that Benefit is owned by Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton (aka LVMH). The parent company owns many brands, including other beauty companies such as Dior, so this has allowed Maggie & Annie a chance to access some of the best the world has to offer when it comes to skincare.

The Range

The debut skincare line is quite large, in my opinion. I love the packing and think Benefit have NAILED it. The caps look like corks and the heavy glass jars look great to display. This is a collection I would be happy to have on show.

Without further a due, here is the range:

  • Foamingly Clean Facial Wash – AU $38 / US $21
  • Refined Finish Facial Polish – AU $40 / US $22 / UK £17.50
  • Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ – AU $45 / US $28 / UK £19.50
  • Total Moisture Face Cream – AU $59 / US $38 / UK £26.50
  • It’s Potent! Eye Cream – AU $58 / US $32 / UK £23.50
  • Moisture Prep Toning Lotion – AU $49 / US $29
  • Remove It Make Up Remover – AU $38 / US $21 / UK £16.50
  • Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist – AU $47 / US $26 / UK £19.50
All fields look to be covered, but the one thing I am finding conflicting Continue Reading

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

Upon my return to blogging at the end of last year I’ve put off explaining what exactly occurred in my life. I confided in a few select friends and trusted individuals about my story but I’ve brushed over it with the wider community by saying the cause was “personal stuff”. I don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
