Happy Friday everyone! So I decided it was about time that I updated my skin care routine, it’s been several months since I have tried any new products or techniques. I do experiment a lot with new makeup, but there are few of my everyday skin care items (like my Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser and Sheer Transformation Moisturizer) that are just so hard to replace. This month I started experimenting with a lot of new products and can’t wait to share my latest favorite with you in this new post. I hope you enjoy my review and find some inspiration to try new products too!

The Nurture Me Moisturizing Crème from Ole Henriksen is my latest beauty find. …
Each day I strive to live a longer healthier life. I am always trying to improve what I put into my body, so why not be more aware of what I put on my body too. The products we use can affect our health as much as what we eat.
My current skin care routine is made up of a combination of store-bought and D.I.Y products I made at home with natural ingredients from my kitchen. Ole Henriksen is one of the first skin care brands I discovered when I was searching for products that were better for both my skin and health. I have tried multiple other brands over the past couple of years, but Ole Henriksen is by far my favourite. …
With such a wide range of cosmetic and beauty products available on the market today, it is very important to know your skin type when selecting which products will best suit your skin care needs. Using the right products will help to nourish, protect and balance your skin, providing you with the perfect canvas for makeup application.
There are several types of skin, do you know which category you fall into?
1. Normal Skin – Less common than other types, normal skin has a healthy, flawless appearance. It looks matte and feels smooth to the touch. People with normal skin tend to have less skin problems than others.
How to care for : use a moisturizer meant for normal skin and an alcohol free toner
Who doesn’t love shopping? I know I do! This past week has been a crazy week of shopping and soaking up rays at the beach. Just trying to enjoy as much summer fun as I can before it’s gone. Sephora was one of my first stops, where I picked up a few of my beauty favourites along with a couple new items I just had to test out. Read on to see what I bought and hear my thoughts on each product!
Here’s what was in my bag!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz/Dark Brown – This amazing little tool is an ultra-slim, retractable pencil that will help create hair-like strokes to achieve a natural looking brow. It glides on easily and is available in 9 different shades. …
We all want to look good, right? Don’t we all want great skin, great hair, great nails and great teeth! But do we ever think about where our beauty products have come from? Too many of us don’t really think about how the products came about, how they were made, how they were tested and what cruelty-free really stands for.
Cosmetics and Skin Care companies unfortunately have a long history of cruel testing practices on animals. Animal cruelty is one of the most unfortunate and barbaric actions made by humans towards other living species.
Now, you might be wondering what you can do to help. Be a conscientious shopper and know what you are buying. Take the time to look at labels before making a purchase.…
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.…
