We all love looking and feeling great. So there’s no need to sacrifice our regular beauty routine all because we are on the go ! Yes I know packing can be difficult, having to plan what we may need or want and fit it all in one little suitcase can be stressful, at least for most of us! These days with luggage restrictions and limits on the amount of gels and liquids we can bring on an airplane, packing requires a little more planning.
Luckily when it comes to beauty products, most beauty companies have jumped on board and created a variety of travel size options of our favourite products. Packing your beauty supplies is easier than you think. With the help of a few left over travel size bottles you can simply pack smaller portions of you favourite products at home, or seek out already prepared travel size versions of your products at your local beauty stores.…
I have discovered a new product for all those woman out there that desire that fuller, sexier pout. Have you always wanted a plump and sexy Kylie Jenner pout? Well no need to go to the extremes! Read on to find out more about Candylipz , one of the top rated natural lip plumpers available.
WHY CANDYLIPZ WAS INVENTED
CandyLipz was invented to restore those oddly shaped lips and to help the appearance of signs of aging. We are all born with lips, but not all lips are created equal in shape and contour. As we age, these problems get worse due to gravity and muscle atrophy in the lip and mouth tissues. If you experience thinning of the lips, lip asymmetry, lip lines/grooves/pits/smoker’s lines, drooping of the Cupid’s bow and corners of the mouth, and/or lengthening of the lip philtrum, CandyLipz is built to improve the appearance of your lips instantly.…
While Maybelline offers a large variety of beauty and makeup products, my favourite would have to be Baby Lips! My number one beauty must have has always been a good lip balm and lip gloss.
I discovered the Baby Lips lip balms when they first launched and since then have gone thru multiple tubes and colours. You can always find a Baby Lips lip balm in my purse.
The lip balms go on smooth, are SPF 20 and offer up to 8 hours of hydration. You can choose a transparent one such as the “Maybelline Baby Lips moisturizing lip balm in Peppermint” wich leaves a slight tingle and minty “scent” or something with a hint of colour like “Maybelline Baby Lips moisturizing lip balm in Pink Punch” wich has a vibrant pink hue and fresh scent of fruity punch. …

e.l.f studio Lip Primer & Plumper
I discovered this product at my local drugstore. Two great products for the price of one. On one end there is an amazing cinnamon scented plumper, wich goes on clear and leaves a light tingling sensation as it plumps your lips for a fuller looking pout. The other end provides you with a neutral toned primer wich acts as a base for last all day color. The best part is it costs less than a coffee! You can buy it here at londondrugs.com for just $3.99

I like to use this beauty elixir 2-3 times each day in my regular skin care routine. I start by spraying it all over my face after I have applied my moisturizer, then I will spray it once again after applying my foundation to help set my makeup and finally I will finish with a translucent powder. Occasionally I will apply during the day just to freshen up my look and add moisture to my skin. The Beauty Elixir has a fresh scent and leaves you feeling refreshed after each and every spritz.

Next time you are at the drugstore shopping for a deodorant and/or antiperspirant , consider the following facts. Almost all of these products contain more than one ingredient that may be potentially harmful to your health.
Ingredients that you may find in your deodorant:
Aluminum-based compounds are commonly used as an active ingredient in antiperspirants. These ingredients will temporarily plug your sweat ducts by stopping the flow of sweat to the skins surface. This harsh compound is estrogenic and when we apply it daily to our underarms close to our breasts , it begins to absorb into your skin and may cause estrogen-like side effects. Having excess amounts of this hormone in our bodies may trigger a cancerous overgrowth in the breast tissue .…
Although makeup remover can be quick and easy to apply, it may contain many active cleansing ingredients. Unless washed off thoroughly a residue may be left behind exposing the skin to excess amounts of various chemicals. These can dry and irate the skin. Some makeup removers also contain fragrance and multiple preservatives such as formaldehyde.
What’s the most important thing when choosing a makeup remover? Avoid those that may contain alcohol, fragrances and preservatives whenever possible. So why not go natural and make one yourself. Try my go to all natural makeup remover, it’s super easy and works great!
How to make my D.I.Y all natural Makeup Remover
- combine 1/2 and 1/2 olive oil and witch hazel ( I prefer the alcohol free Rose petal version ) in a small travel size bottle
- shake generously before use
- apply a small amount of product to a cotton makeup pad then swipe gently across your eyelids and be amazed.
