You know how I love me a spa treatment every now and then, well something I usually tend to avoid is spa treatments that have a health angle. I am really not great when it comes to maintaing any form of a healthy lifestyle. I don’t exercise, my diet is all sugar or chocolate and I have never even had a blood test. I wish live autopsies were possible because I would love to know how hideous my insides are.

A few weeks ago I was telling someone about my devastating health habits and they told about the Alkaline Spa & Clinic in Potts Point, Sydney. As soon as I heard ‘spa’ I was drawn in but then they proceeded to tell me about how all their treatments are based around healthy stuff. Ok, so that was a tad less inspiring …. but I love spa treatments!

After looking over the website I got a little more enthusiastic. They offer everything from Natropaths to Colonics, but the treatment menu was the gold mine. I was lucky enough to be offered a complimentary treatment and the one I wanted to try was their Signature Detox Massage.

What Is the Signature Detox Massage?

Alkaline Spa and Clinic has unveiled their new signature Massage – 75 minutes of pure de-stressing and rejuvenation by combining some of the best techniques including lymphatic drainage, stimulating reflex points, body, face and scalp massage, and Dry Body Brushing.

Alkaline’s signature Massage has been designed to target the build up of toxins stress, wellbeing, and immune function.

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
