Sothys Energizing Day Cream and Energizing Night Cream | Review


Being a beauty blogger I feel very lucky whenever I am given the opportunity to try products, and extremely grateful when I am sent products that I could not normally afford. Although I love finding cheap finds, it's always nice to feel pampered with more luxurious products. After trying the Sothys cosmetic range a few months back (reviewed here), I was looking forward to trying their skin care line with their recently launched Energizing Day Cream* and Energizing Night Cream*. Oh, and can we just take a moment here and admire the absolutely stunning discovery box these two creams came in? I just couldn't believe my eyes when I unwrapped the packaging! These creams are said to contain the root of youth with the very potent ingredient that is Siberian ginseng. Now what is so special about this little shrub, aka the "secret plant of Russians" is that it is known to be highly adaptable not only to the extreme conditions of the Siberian steppes, but also when used in its extracted form on the skin. These creams make a universal treatment that is suitable for men and women alike, of all ages, and claim to illuminate the face to reveal glowing, youthful skin.

NEW La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Serum and Anthelios Ultra-Fluid Lotion SPF 60 | Review


Last month I was invited to attend an event hosted by French brand La Roche-Posay for the launch of their newest skin care product, the Pigmentclar Serum dark spot corrector. If you would like to know all about my time at the event, you can read all about my experience in my separate post here. The people at La Roche-Posay were super generous and hooked us up with a swag bag containing not only the new Pigmentclar Serum* but also their popular Anthelios Ultra-Fluid Lotion SPF 60*, and having been using them for about a month now, I thought I would share my thoughts on how they have been working for my skin!

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation


Does it happen to any of you to buy a product and not start using it until months, or even years later? I'm certainly guilty of this happening with The Body Shop's Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation which I bought what must be over a year and a half ago! I believe at the time I bought another foundation which I ended up really liking, and time and time again I would find some other foundation that would prioritize in my stash of 'makeup to be used next'. I don't like having too many cream products in pans open at the same time since they tend to dry up and go bad more quickly than other beauty items. I was recently going through my collection and found this compact hiding in the back of my drawer, and thought it was finally time I rip the seal open and put it to the test!

Guess who filmed her first YouTube video!?

I am so excited to share that I have finally taken the plunge and created my very own YouTube channel! I've recently been working on my first video and it is now published for the world to see! Having my own channel has always been on the back of my mind ever since I delved into the world of beauty and makeup about five years ago - I actually discovered the amazing beauty community through YouTube before even knowing about the wonderful platform that is blogging and that I have come to love.

Zim's Advanced Organic Crack Creme with Hydrocortisone and Max-Freeze Spray | Review


With the harsh winter we've just experienced here in Canada, my skin has definitely been in need of some extra TLC. My skin has become very dry to the point where I have sadly developed stubborn red patches on the back of my hands. The last snowstorm that hit had us reaching for our shovels yet again, and the heavy snow that came with this *hopefully* last present from mother-nature would be to blame for the muscle pain I've been experiencing in my shoulders and lower back. One good thing came out of this last white-out however: I got to put the Zim's Advanced Organic Crack Creme* and Max-Freeze Spray* to the test. Keep on reading to know how these products fared!

March 2014 Empties


The most satisfying time of the month has arrived! I'll be breaking down to you the various beauty products I've used up over the last few weeks. Empties posts are some of my favorites to read and write - I just love the idea of sharing what has or hasn't been working for me, and hopefully this can help some of you in determining if some of these products are worth the try.
