Watched TV lately? Picked up a magazine? Logged on to Twitter? If you have done at least one of those things you have probably been bombarded with beauty companies promoting their brand new and exciting ‘BB Cream’. Unless you read a million beauty blogs, or you are just some on-trend beauty freak, you probably know very little about what a ‘BB Cream’ is, right? I am with you. I know nothing!

Let’s just say I have bought more BB Cream than I could possibly use in a lifetime. Each day I use it I fall more and more in love, so I thought it is time I get some answers. This is for my own learning as much as it is for you …. because after all, at The Plastic Diaries, we share journeys.

What Is BB Cream?

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
