SK-II Facial Regime Header

SK-II is one of the big brands I had never got around to trying. I had heard so much about it, I have friends rave to me about it and in all honesty it has been towards the top of my list of products to try for a few years, but for some reason it just never happened. That all changed earlier this year when I had the opportunity to have a facial with Fumi Yamamoto, the founder of Zen Facial in Sydney. On paper Fumi is a wellness and spa consultant, but what she does goes far beyond that. Her facials are the what dreams are made of. Her hands are like little magic wands that vanish flaws and create good-lookingness (the thesaurus couldn’t give me a better word for that one).

I don’t need to tell you about the facial, because it was amazing and I fell asleep, so I am going to share my review of the products I was prescribed and whether the regime worked for me.  Continue Reading

I talk a lot about treatments, salons and clinics on The Plastic Diaries because I believe that your skin, just like a car, needs to go in for a professional service every now and then. Certain treatments in particular are the key to keeping your skin looking and feeling good. But, home care is equally important. I get asked quite often about my skin secrets but none more so than what I use at home. I have told you a lot about Dannè Montague-King (DMK) and I still use the products daily but there are other products I haven’t yet told you about or only briefly mentioned.

Today I am going to share with you some products I use to achieve the same result as a professional treatment. This post is dedicated to Kat _H_, an Instagram user who so kindly complimented my complexion again this week.  Continue Reading
