Posts in Purifying Crème Cleanser

I know everyone has been blabbering on about the exciting news that Tom Ford will be releasing a full fledged makeup line this September, but I just had to have my say on it as well. Now I have to admit I have never smelt his fragrances but I have been lucky enough to try out his high-end lipstick in the gorgeous Pure Pink, and that one little bullet of colour has me head over heals for Tom Ford (you know, even more so. Not just for his sheer good looks anymore).

The Collection

Ok so pretty pictures will tell you most of the story but I sure do want to know what all those pretty palettes and bottles are. I think one exciting thing to note is that Charlotte Tilbury was the make-up artist Tom chose to work with on creating these products. She is an extraordinary talent and along with Tom’s unique visions this is going to be one collection that will sell out before you can blink.

We can expect to see unheard of makeup inventions like eyebrow pens with calligraphy style tips, as well as 6 products in a skincare line. So why skincare? Well, just like me, Tom believes that good makeup starts with flawless skin. His skincare products will include an oil based serum called Intensive Infusion Concentrate Extreme (what a tongue twister) and Purifying Crème Cleanser, “it goes on like cold cream and the skin feels moisturized and unbelievable” says Mr Ford.

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
