Bad (and Confusing) News from Sephora

So the latest is that Sephora will now be opening a warehouse in Canada so that they can ship products from here.  Theoretically this is good: it means that if you order something online, you should be getting it quicker and it means that there’s less impact on the environment as well. However, Sephora is […]

Hats off to Loblaw Companies

A summer of this story from the Financial Post earlier this week: Loblaw Companies Ltd. has decided to stop manufacturing products with Triclosan, Phthalates, and Microbeads by the end of 2018.

I love the outdoors, but it seems that whenever I’m outside at the lake, there’s always some type of pest to be wary about, and as much as I know that a DEET-containing repellent is best for actual camping, the thought of spraying myself and my kids with the stuff isn’t ideal. So I’m happy […]

Currently Wearing: Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette

I first got this palette back in December, and since then I’ve gotten lots of blushes, bronzers, contour palettes and eyeshadow palettes, and so I put this huge palette away in storage.  A week later, I realized that I missed it too much – the colours of eyeshadow and the versatility of the palette was […]

Why Exchanging My Breast Implants Was the Best Decision I Ever Made

  I’ve always been happy that I listened to my instincts and got breast implants 11 years ago. After spending much of my adult life being self-conscious about wearing bathing suits, low-cut tops, or sweaters, I looked great. It didn’t change my life, but that wasn’t the point. I just felt much better about my […]

Skintimate Readers’ Reviews

So, I realize I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks – it’s been a combination of lack of inspiration and being super busy with other projects that have kept me from my laptop and from even opening my email on some days. … I’m going to get back into the swing of things one […]
