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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

The Staples: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, Night

Another one of my staples is a night cream and I have been using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion Night forever. It exfoliates with AHA’s and again, it’s at the right pH to actually work. I will be so upset if Neutrogena ever discontinues this. Once again, it’s at a reasonable price and is easily […]

L’Occitane Almond Apple Sweet Peel Face Scrub

I needed a new face scrub and happened to be in the vincinity of a L’Occitane store, so I stopped in and ending up getting their Almond Apple Sweet Peel Face Scrub. What drew me to it was that it’s in a gel-type base that’s completely grease-less, yet the scrub particles are quite small and […]

Sisley Scrub

I just used the Sisley Gentle Facial Buffing Cream and not only is my skin scrubbed, but it smells so good! The scrubby bits are quite fine which means you can get a nice rigorous scrub. Try it, it’s a good one.

Minty Masks Part 2

The Body Shop Blue Corn 3 in 1 Deep Cleansing Scrub Mask has been part of the Body Shop line ever since I can remember but I had never tried it before. To my surprise, this mask was actually quite minty! The scrubby bits in this mask are very finely ground so they end up […]
