If you haven’t started buying christmas and holiday gifts for your loved ones than don’t panic, I think most of us are in the same boat. To combat that last minute rush of panic, I am going to share with you a whole heap of holiday gift guides that will make buying presents a breeze. To start off I am going to show you the best offerings from one of my favourite beauty retailers, Sephora. These beauty kits include makeup, body, skincare, fragrance and nails.

For my fellow Australians, I know how painful it is to see these amazing products from a store that won’t ship to us but I have some  news that may help you so look out for that later on. Now ….. let’s look at the gifts! Continue Reading

The beauty sample box subscription craze has exploded all over the world. What started off as a really simple idea (and probably dismissed by so many) has turned into big business with women embracing this new beauty service. I for one am a huge fan and think it is a genius idea that I wish I had come up with myself.

We only have a few more days until Christmas and that means your chances of finding a present, getting it and having it under the tree in time is fading fast. That is why today I am going to give you a breakdown of all the beauty sample box subscription services you can take advantage of. Why? Because it is the PERFECT Christmas gift.

What Is A Beauty Sample Box Subscription Service?

If you haven’t heard of them yet, don’t worry, it is still pretty early days and in my opinion Continue Reading

Perfumes and fragrance are something I openly admit knowing very little about. For me it is up there with wine and cuts of meat. Wouldn’t have a clue. Yesterday an email popped into my inbox from The Fragrance Foundation Australia and it was something I found very helpful. Why, you wonder?

When people ask me what fragrances I like I usually say sweet, because I know I like the smell of sweet things. Funnily enough ‘sweet’ isn’t an actual fragrance family, so taking a look at this Top 20 list gave me the chance to see what family I tend to like. Turns out, I go for a Soft Floral or Floral. I think that is strange because 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
