Nad’s Ingrow Solution

My body always goes into shock when I remove hair, whether it be with a razor, cream or wax, which manifests as a cross between heat rash and razor burn. It looks absolutely awful and feels a million times worse. Burning, itching and inflamed skin is never a good companion, especially on your vacation. During my last-minute dash through Priceline prior to my vacation in Bali, I grabbed the Ingrow Solution by Nad’s. I have never used this particular product but I have had some luck with other razor burn solutions previously so I was hoping this one would be a winner.

Did it save my skin? Will it be a summer staple? Read my review to find out!  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites April 2013

Wow. April flew by a little too quick for my liking. With all the madness of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia I completely lost track of time. Who knew 5 days of madness can create a black hole for time. I may have left it to the first day of May but I am not too late to share with you some of my favourite beauty products to launch in April … right?!?

April was a mammoth month for new beauty. A total of 87 new products crossed my path but not all were made equally. There were lots of new Mother’s Day gift-worthy releases but I am going to save those for another post. For now, these are the new April products topping my list. Continue Reading

I can never have enough makeup remover wipes on hand. I keep packets stocked up because they are that one beauty product I couldn’t imagine I would stop using. I am as lazy as they come when it is time to remove my makeup at night. I admit, it feels so good at the end of a long day to clean off all that product and let my skin breathe, but the process is so annoying when all I want to do is sleep. That is why I keep a packet of makeup remover wipes beside my bed and lately it has been the new ones from Biore.

In my head Biore was always a ‘teenager-only’ brand of skincare because I remember seeing it in all my favourite teenage magazines a decade ago. Their award winning Pore Strips were all the rage when I was a teen but recently they rebranded and they’re offering products that now appeal to me. The makeup remover wipes was the first product from the new line I really put to the test so I am sharing my review of them first.  Continue Reading

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
