What I’m Using Right Now

It’s time for another edition of “What I’m Using Right Now”! I love using Vichy’s foaming cleanser because it really gets everything off.  I’ve also been using the Philosophy peel scrub because it’s making my face so smooth.  I’ll sometimes use the Avon glycolic peel pad, and then I tone with Caryl Baker Visage’s Hyaluronic Acid […]

Current Foundation Situation

Layering foundation and sunscreen in the middle of the summer can be a real pain, but I’ve figured it out, and I’ll admit that it’s against the advice of dermatologists and sunscreen makers.  I mix the Garnier Ombrelle sunscreen with L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation.  The Foundation colour I use is 109, so it’s a […]

Mineral Sunscreen from Garnier Ombrelle

Ok, so I wrote about Neutrogena’s new mineral sunscreen which should be what we’re all using, but now I’ve come across Garnier Ombrelle’s mineral sunscreen which is tinted!  Truly, I couldn’t ask for anything more, because the main issue with mineral sunscreens is that they don’t dry clear even if they’re supposed to.  You can blend […]

Masks for Oily Skin

Summer time can mean that you have to change up your skincare routine especially if you have oilier skin.  For some, that means lighter moisturizer and more regular cleansing, and for others it means just adding a mask to help keep skin more matte.  Most masks for oily skin have kaolin or another type of […]

Garnier Micellar Water in Travel Sizes

So Micellar Water – it’s actually such a controversial product among skincare specialists. Some people really hate it because they don’t think that it really gives your skin a good clean, and others can’t live without it because it’s so easy to use. Micellar Water looks and feels like regular water, but performs as a […]

New Garnier Whole Blends

For the longest time I’ve been seeing Garnier’s new Whole Blends line at the grocery store, but I put it off because the whole line reminded me of Herbal Essences, so I just thought “been there, done that”. But then I read the ingredients to the Whole Blends Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk shampoo and […]

Drugstore Find: Garnier’s Triple Nutrition Miraculous Oil-In-Spray

So, I recently wrote about having very dry hair – to the point that I’m now applying oil to my hair while I’m in the shower and then rinsing it off for an extra dose of nutrition for my hair, but now I’m adding another step and yes, it’s another amazing product from the drugstore. […]

New Garnier Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream

Ok, sleeping masks are the new thing in beauty.  Basically they’re rich heavy creams that work to hydrate and plump up your skin while you’re sleeping.  What all these masks seem to have in common is that they do tend to sit on your skin and penetrate slowly throughout the night.  They all also seem […]

The New Drugstore Cleanser You Need to Try

Ok, so Garnier just added a Sensitive line of cleansers to its existing Clean+ cleansing lineup, and while I don’t usually use cleansers for sensitive skin, I was drawn to the Clean+ Gentle Clarifying Cleansing Gel.  I love a foaming cleanser, and one that’s meant to be gentle sounded good. Turns out that this completely […]

The Best Highlighting Concealer That’s Not Really a Concealer

So, I’ve often said that I don’t use an under-eye concealer on a regular basis, but all that has changed. Firstly, I’m still into contouring and highlighting. I’ve always applied a contour, but I sometimes skip out on the under-eye highlight that goes with that. I don’t need a concealer to cover darkness under my […]
