Fillerina review with before and after photos by beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries

I have been dying to share this Fillerina review with you for so many reasons. I’m so excited to reveal to you my thoughts and my before and after photos that I could burst. But why is this review so important? Put simply, it could save you making a big mistake!

Hyaluronic Acid fillers for anti-wrinkle and volumizing injections are now trending so much that even girls as young as 16 years old are undergoing regular treatments. I’m a vocal advocate for cosmetic enhancement and surgery but I can’t stress enough that those measures really should only be sought as the last of a series of other options. The problem with injectables is that you have to maintain them because once you stop you end up looking worse than when you started – aging doesn’t stop, it’s just not as visible when you run interference.

In my opinion, the longer you can go without using an injectable the better it is for your aging appearance overall. Treat your canvas well and you won’t need to fork out a few hundred dollars each month. My Fillerina review explains how this topically-applied volumising gel could be what you need to avoid the needle.  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries sharing her review of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Makeup Remover Wipes

Bioderma Sensibio h20 Micelle Cleansing Water is a popular choice for makeup removal worldwide. Little did I know that this makeup remover was also available in the convenient and handy wipes format. I spotted the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes during an emergency trip to a pharmacy in Paris when I was struck down with a killer flu. As usual, I go in for medicine and I come out with beauty products. No shock there.

Do the wipes work as well as the original micelle water solution? Are they any better than other makeup removal wipes? My review tells you whether these are worth your attention.  Continue Reading

Moroccanoil Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Whether it’s warm or cold weather it doesn’t matter much to my hair lately – it’s always thirsty! Maybe it’s an age thing, maybe it’s an Australian weather thing – whatever the reason doesn’t matter because I need hydration and one of the easiest ways to get it in my hair is with a hydrating shampoo/conditioner combo I can use daily.

I’ve wanted to try the Moroccanoil Hydrating shampoo and conditioner for quite some time after having a good experience with the Moroccanoil Extra Volume range. I was still skeptical about how the Hydration range would work for me, as I previously have mentioned the hero product of Moroccanoil has yet to impress me, but I still wanted to give them a shot. My review shares if these products worked on my fine, dry hair.  Continue Reading

Simple Spotless Rapid Action Spot Zapper

Pimples don’t stop making themselves present just because you turn 25. In fact, I believe I’ve had more pimples as an adult than I ever had as a pre-teen or teenager. Stress, diet, hormones and environmental changes are something that have contributed greatly to my recent season of breakouts. I have a pretty solid daily skincare regime but when the occasional breakout rears its ugly head I don’t go changing my entire routine. I break out a spot treatment instead.

Simple Skincare’s range expansion now includes blemish fighters. I recently picked up the Spot Zapper as I’m a sucker for trying a new release and the roll-on applicator intrigued me. Has it been combatting my pimples? Read the review below to find out! Continue Reading
