Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule

…wherein I stay loyal to my earthy woody scents and this one is a Sandalwood incarnation. Seriously though, Serge Lutens has been around forever, but I feel as if the brand has regained popularity in the last year.  I’ve seen a couple of pop-ups and I’ve been intrigued enough to revisit some scents, and the […]

Skinny Wands

I’m all about the skinny wands these days, and these are my two favourites right now: Caryl Baker Visage’s Brow Ink ($23) on the brows adds some colour but also helps those stray hairs stay in place.   My other favourite is Marcelle’s Xtension Plus Skyline mascara ($12.99) which has an incredibly skinny wand that […]

The Ordinary Haul

Here it is.  My tiny little The Ordinary haul ordered directly from the Deciem website.  I got the 7% Toning Solution, the Retinol 1% in Squalene, the 23% Vitamin C Suspension with HA, Niacinamide 10% and the Serum Foundation and the Coverage Foundation in 2.1Y.

I Got a Dyson Hair Dryer

I’ve written about Dyson on the blog before.  I got to try their vacuum cleaners out before buying them, and guess what, I loved them so much that I kept buying them after I gave the loaner back.  What I love the most is that they’re super light so that I can pick up the […]

New, Marc Anthony Zero Frizz

The hair care game has changed, people!  One of my favourite thing about new haircare products is how easy it is to find great hair care that’s silicone free, but still gives your hair some definition.   That’s why I’m loving the new Zero Frizz collection from Marc Anthony Hair.  There’s a shampoo and conditioner, but […]

Vita Liberata Trystal Pressed Self-Tan Powder

Ok so here’s the deal with powder with self-tanner in it.  It works – but I use it on top of sunscreen and foundation so there’s really no opportunity for the self-tanner to work on my skin.  Plus, with daily retinol and vitamin C, my skin is being exfoliated pretty regularly and the idea of […]

Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

The best cleansers are gentle enough for sensitive skin and take off all your makeup – and guess what, Cerave Hydrating Cleanser falls into that category.  You’ve probably heard all about Cerave – it’s highly recommended by dermatologists, and when I posted about it on Instagram, so many people commented or messaged me saying that […]
