Live Clean Exotic Nectar Replenishing Body Lotion

I’m kind of having a Live Clean moment right now.  First, I loved their hand soap, and now I’m using the body lotion in the same great Argan Oil-infused line.   This is the prefect lotion to transition into the warmer months.  It’s light on the hands but still fortified with glycerine, grape-seed oil, and […]

Lush for Valentine’s Day

I’m happy to say that a Valentine’s Day gift doesn’t have to be anything crazy expensive.  Turns out that while we all want our partners to splurge on us, actually we spend much less than what we expect to receive.  So why not keep expectations in check, and go for a present that’s pretty, special, […]

Aveeno Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Body Cream

My New Favourite Winter Moisturizer

Yes, I’ve been a little MIA on the review bit, but here I am again with my new favourite moisturizer that smells so yummy that I can’t get enough of it.  And it’s light enough that you can put loads on but moisturizing enough that it lasts the whole entire day.  And the whipped consistency… […]

Streaky, patchy Self-Tanner? Here’s what to do:

Self-tanners work best on top of smooth skin, so exfoliating before applying is very important. For the tan to continue looking great, it’s also important to exfoliate a couple of days after application so that the skin sloughs off evenly and the tan continues to look smooth. St. Tropez recommends their own Tan Enhancing Body […]

Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but actually, in all my time as beauty blogger, I hadn’t tried the infamous Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse. I think it’s because I’d always seen it at Shoppers Drug Mart (they always carried French pharmacy products way before it was trendy to do so) and so I just didn’t give […]

The ONLY After-Sun Lotion I Like

…you’ll want to pick this up before your weekend begins. Too often, “After-Sun” lotions are too light, not moisturizing enough, and made up of alcohol so that they feel cool on the skin.  That’s why, I seldom review them because I never use them myself. But here’s one I like, because it’s lightly moisturizing.  Moisturizing […]

Philosophy Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion

I did not experience any skin firming with the use of this body lotion. But I have to admit that I don’t expect that out of any lotion, and it wasn’t really an effect that I was looking for. That said, you absolutely need to try Philosophy’s body lotions!  They are some of the most hydrating […]
