Rosie Fernandez, Managing Director, La Prairie Australia

It has been quite some time since the last Brand Profile post and it has been something I have wanted to revisit ever since. I will be kicking these off again and to start I am sharing with you one of my all time favourite skincare brands, La Prairie. This brand not only makes amazing skincare that really works, but they do it in a way that makes you feel a million dollars. It is luxury at its finest and a brand that everyone should experience at least once.

If you have ever asked me for skincare advice, chances are my answer has included La Prairie in some form. I am yet to have a bad experience with any of their products or services, and it is a brand I am genuinely giddy to see in-store or at a spa.

To give you some extra insight into the La Prairie brand, I have spoken with La Prairie Australia’s Managing Director, Rosi Fernandez. Continue Reading

I know we are only into day 2 of our week long Mothers Day gifting special, but I thought I should let you in on one of my own little secrets before we go any further.

The time has come to tell you of my first New York spa experience, and it was a doozy! Firstly I have to declare that I decided the true and honest way to get a real feel for a spa is to have two treatments. I felt that just one treatment wouldn’t give a fair and accurate experience, enough so to really provide a good review. Gosh I am a hard worker!

First up was the La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton New York. I was 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
