Posts in Teddy Charles

It is June and that means winter has officially arrived for the southern hemisphere, and summer for the northern. As I am sure you can guess, that means lots and lots of new products going on sale across the globe. Here are my favourites this month.  Continue Reading

The Sunsilk Co-Creations brand is continuing to grow and their latest addition release comes from parisian ‘style & length expert’, Teddy Charles. This new range, however, is no Teddy’s first with Sunsilk. In fact, he has previously released two other collections, ‘Plumped Up Volume’ in the green packaging, and ‘Longer and Stronger’ in black packaging. Now Teddy has come out with Frizz and Weather Defence, and I have to say that out of the 3, this one sounds just right for me.

I have fine hair. A lot of it, but it is fine. My hair is completely subject to weather conditions, and it doesn’t take much to turn it frizzy and limp. Living in Sydney means I get to experience multiple climates each week (sometimes even in the one day!), so it would be great to prevent that change before it happens. Let’s see how they went!

Frizz & Weather Defence Shampoo and Conditioner

Easily the first thing I noticed about these are the scent, which is slightly bubblegum-esque. It is a bit sweet but not overwhelming and once you rinse your hair out it is pretty much gone. I love that my hair doesn’t feel dried out after using the shampoo (even with two washes, which is unnecessary unless you have been rolling around in mud) and the conditioner makes my hair easy to comb almost instantly. Afterwards, when my hair is dry, there is a slightly noticeable reduction in frizz.

One thing that annoys me to no end is the packaging of the conditioner. Yes, it looks sleek, but because of the weird shape on the top it can’t be stood with the lid up (and no, it can’t lean against anything either because the bottle is too curved). You may be thinking that is such a lame annoyance, but I have to share my one shower with two other humans and 6 dogs. We don’t have any shelves/racks in the shower so everything has to be placed on the floor. One of those humans is male and works with greasy cars in a warehouse all day, so you can imagine how filthy he is. The last thing I want to think about is all that filth pooling in water around my beauty products, seeping in through the lid and eventually ending up being put in my hair (and don’t think it doesn’t happen, because it does, but I didn’t want to scar you by taking photos). Ye, not a good picture!

If you are blessed to have your own shower, or maybe even a shelf/rack to put your products on, than these products are superb.

The curved top of the conditioner causes me nightmares

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  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
