Seraphina Organics Love Me Tender Hand Wash

The importance of organic doesn’t just relate to the food we eat, it’s just as important for the products we use. Organic grown ingredients and the reduction of synthetic chemicals means we are giving our skin the best possible chance to live in harmony with the earth. As the environment has become substantially more important to me in recent years I find myself looking for general use products that align with my values. Hand wash is one of my latest obsessions.

Seraphina Organics is a home-grown Australian certified organic beauty brand focused on creating products for ultra sensitive skin. I’ve been using their Love Me Tender Hand Wash through chilly weather and moving houses, so I’m ready to give my review.  Continue Reading

Goldwell Dualsenses Color Shampoo and Conditioner

Maintaining my shiny new fuchsia hair has allowed me to put some haircare products to the test. There are so many colour-maitanence hair products on the market but when you are talking about a colour as bold as mine you need something that pulls out all stops. Goldwell’s Dualsenses Color range boasts the ability to do just that, but does it live up to the promises?

I chose the Fade Stop Shampoo and Detangling Conditioner for this review as it’s marked for fine to normal hair. The Dualsenses Color range does come in an Extra Rich version for those requiring extra care. My review tells you how well this duo performed to maintain my colour as well as the condition and quality of my hair.  Continue Reading

Did you know Prunes have more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable? No really, I didn’t believe it either. Even Pomegranates. I always thought Prunes were just good for your digestive system. The thing is, science isn’t exactly my forte. I know antioxidants are something we should look for in our food, and even our skincare, but why?

You know me, healthy insides isn’t something on the top of my “care about” list. Yes, yes, many of you have told me off about that, but the fact of the matter is, I care about my outsides a little lot more. Eating things and doing things just so I am healthy on the inside is not good enough for me. So, should I care about antioxidants if I am only interested in my looks? Supposably, I should.

So, these are meant to make us look good?

How Do Antioxidants Keep Us Looking Good On The Outside?

This is the question I ask myself whenever a skincare ingredient crosses my path (just remove ‘Antioxidants’ and insert ingredient of discussion). In this case, I got the answer I was looking for from dermatologist Leslie Baumann. Continue Reading

I was actually starting to worry that my love affair with Pomegranate scented beauty products was starting to wain. Then I caught a whiff of this Radox body wash and my love was renewed. No, that is a lie. My love ballooned in to an emotion so strong I was left showering 3 times a day just so I could smell it. Obsessive much?

Radox is one of those brands that totally slip under my radar. With brands that have been around forever I tend to remember how a brand USED to be, and in the Radox case, I always remembered it for the Muscle Soak bath salts. You see, I don’t like baths. I have never been a fan of taking a ‘bath’. Spa baths are a different story, I like those (so long as I am the only one in it. And it has been thoroughly disinfected. And I have a shower before and after). But normal baths, nuh-uh. So to me, Radox was a bath brand. How unfair am I? Continue Reading

Last Thursday (26 May) we celebrated the wonderful birthday of yours truly, The Plastic Diaries. Yes, we reached the ripe old age of 1. I mentioned to you briefly that today (May 30) I will be celebrating with a big giveaway. For those of you who are regular readers of The Plastic Diaries you may notice that today is the last Monday of the month, which is usually when we have our monthly giveaway, but this month I wanted to honour our 1st birthday by doing something a little different. Instead of giving away just 1 product that I love from the past 30 days, I wanted to do a years worth. This giveaway features products or brands I have mentioned in the past year, whether it had been a review or a special offer, there is a mix of everything.

Why This Giveaway

Before I get into the prizes and competition nitty gritty, I just wanted to say a few quick words. HA! I know, I have never said a ‘few’ or ‘quick’ words in my lifetime, but I will try.

Making it to the 1 year mark for me means a lot. It has been a tiresome, exhausting, crazy and joyful ride that I wouldn’t have changed a minute of. However, how this past year has been for me is of no real importance. This past year has really been about you. Talking to you, sharing with you and having fun with you. More than anything I hope you have learnt something while reading The Plastic Diaries but also had a little fun. Some of you openly express your opinions, via the comments, Twitter or Facebook, and I love every time you do. Others sit there quietly and support me from a far, I love that too.
