Facial Cleansers for Dry Skin

Everyone has dry skin on their face at this time of year – even us combination skin gals need something a little extra for our faces and that’s why I’m going to recommend that you try an oil cleanser. It sounds strange, I know, but the newest cleansers rinse clean and leave no residue! Try […]

L’Oreal Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Skin Remodeller

Of course, I’ve got to talk about skin moisturizers when I talk about dry skin. L’Oreal Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Skin Remodeller is new and was brought on the market when L’Oreal saw the success of their other Wrinkle De-Crease products. This is a great moisturizer but it’s not at all greasy and absorbs into the […]

Suncare… an Introduction

Once again, I’ve been looking through what you’re interested in reading about and I’ve seen an overwhelming number of requests for suncare and summer-related products! I think we’re all so sick of the winter that it’s more fun to dream about the months ahead. As I was telling a friend today: “We’re in mid-February, which […]

Mindy Shear Lip Balm

My guess is going to be that most of my readers have not heard of Mindy Shear Cosmetics. That’s cool, though. Before the Canadian Makeup Show, I hadn’t heard of Mindy Shear or her cosmetics company. She’s based in Montreal where she owns and operates two stores. But in any case, lets get down to […]

J.R. Watkins Lip Balm

I’ve told you about J.R. Watkins before – I am smitten with their mango-scented hand lotion and body butter, and recommend the brand highly. Some time, somewhere, I received their lip balm in a goody bag, and I’ve been using it non-stop. It goes on easily, it’s just slightly minty, and it really works! It’s […]

A Valentine’s Day Gift for the Guys

Seriously, if it weren’t for marketing, I think I’d actually forget about Valentine’s Day. In any case, I am sure that some of you are going to be looking for presents for your significant others, and the Every Man Jack products I reviewed last year would make an excellent present. In case you are wary […]

MAC Moisturelush

Since it’s the kind of moisturizer that I wouldn’t ordinarily go for, I wanted to really use MAC’s Moisturelush for a while before I reviewed it. This cream is very moisturizing but has a light texture that makes it easy to smooth into skin without having it feel too heavy. Moisturelush will be a godsend […]

For the Times that You Crave Chocolate

I am craving chocolate a lot these days, and it reminded me to talk about one of my favourite lip balms of all time – the Lush Whip Stick Lip Balm. I loved the Lip Balm so much that I’ve purchased it numerous times – it leaves a sheer chocolaty stain on your lips (that […]

The Oxygen Facial

The Oxygen Facial is becoming the hit treatment of the new year. It was mentioned many times in magazines in 2007, and at that time it was mostly used by celebrities – the most notable one being Madonna. It’s unsurprising, really, that her Madgesty would be interested in such a service. It’s completely non-invasive and […]

Cleanser Question

My dear friend Tara asked me to recommend a cleanser for her. What I’m using right now is nothing special but it works. A few weeks ago, I had some breakouts so I changed cleansers. I started using Noxzema Triple Clean Antibacterial Lathering Cleanser. It’s a little drying for this time of year, but my […]
