Kimberly Nissen Radio Show Guest Host LA Talk Live

Did you catch me on Alayna’s Beauty Talk or Indian Tylers’s Beyond The Vanity? I was a special guest on both radio shows today at LA Talk Live. I talked about lots of beauty products, health products and a heap of tips to get you looking and feeling your best.

If you didn’t catch me live because you can still watch the live stream of the full shows on their website. Visit Alayna’s Beauty Talk and Indian Tyler’s Beyond The Vanity to see what we got up to. Live tweeting also took place but we talked about so many great products that you may have missed a few.

However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

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.
