Rocky Mountain Soap Company Natural Skincare and Body Care | Review

rocky mountain soap company natural skincare and body care

What is one boutique you wish you had nearby but sadly don't? Rocky Mountain Soap Company would be mine - I first discovered this shop back in 2014 when visiting Alberta, and learned that they have quite a few locations on the West Coast. Thankfully, they also have an online store, but seeing the products in real life is definitely a treat for your eyes and nose! Proudly Canadian, they make all their products in small batches with the finest natural ingredients and are committed to being toxin and chemical-free. They are also cruelty-free and carry many vegan options. I previously featured their Shampoo Bar with Rosemary, and I'm excited to showcase some recent discoveries that are too good not to share!

My Culligan Water Experience | All-Around Beauty Benefits

This post was sponsored by Culligan Water as part of an Integrated Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Culligan Water Reverse Osmosis Filtration System

For the past few months, my beauty routine has drastically changed for the better. "How?" you ask? Well, we all know that water is a necessity of life, but little did I know how much the quality of the water that runs throughout my home can significantly improve not only my quality of life but also take my beauty routine to a whole new level. Since having a Culligan Water softening and filtration system installed in my house, not only have I been enjoying great tasting water at the touch of a button, but I have also experienced softer skin, smoother hair, and an overall more enjoyable and effective beauty routine.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow + Your Lip Service Royal Lipstick Trio | Review + Swatches

Beauty products fit for a queen? Yes, please! I first dabbled in a few Charlotte Tilbury makeup and skincare products last year and was most definitely on cloud nine after putting them to the test. Charlotte Tilbury is one of those beauty brands that everyone and their mother seem to be raving about, and I am one of those who has proudly joined the gang since that first introduction! I recently received the Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow* as well as a few of the brand's lip products*, including the Your Lip Service Royal Lipstick Trio*. This was my first time trying her powders and lipsticks and I wanted to share how I got along with them!

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Skincare | Review

juice beauty stem cellular skincare

I've been coveting the Juice Beauty brand for many years, as it seemed to be well-loved by many in the green beauty community. All of their products are cruelty-free, and although their products are on the more pricey side, I always wondered if they were worthy of a splurge. I recently got to put them to the test with three skincare products from their Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle line*: their Exfoliating Peel Spray, Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum and Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer. I mean who doesn't want to smell like fresh fruit, a lovely blend which Juice Beauty has mastered by incorporating organic fruit extracts into their skincare. After using them for the last couple of months, I am ready to share my thoughts! Spoiler alert: I found a new holy grail product!

Water Softening and Filtering with Culligan Water | Changes in My Beauty Routine

This post was sponsored by Culligan Water as part of an Integrated Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Water consumption is such an integral part of our daily lives that we oftentimes forget how much of a necessity it is, even when it comes to our beauty routine! Everything from reaching for a tall glass of water in the morning, to hopping in the shower, brushing your teeth, and cleansing your face (the list goes on), the amount of water and the various uses we have for it can be quite eye-opening to reflect on. While my family and I have always been conscientious about how much water we use in our household, it wasn't until a few years ago that we opted to use a pitcher to filter our drinking water to lower our carbon footprint, no longer having to resort to purchasing plastic water bottles on the regular. We haven't looked back since, however there are still cons to owning one, such as having to buy filter replacements every couple of months, which can really add up overtime. So when I was presented with the opportunity to have a Culligan Water Aqua-Cleer Water Filtration System with ClearLink Pro as well as a High Efficiency Water Softener installed in my house, I couldn't say no to providing the best for my people, and just had to see for myself how this change could improve our quality of life and take our beauty rituals to a new and improved level!

How To Get Enhanced Lashes + Brows with RapidLash & RapidBrow

This post was sponsored by RapidLash as part of an Influence Central campaign and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Have you always dreamed of having naturally fluttery lashes and full brows? *raises hand* Back in my teenage years, I made the mistake of over plucking my eyebrows (I still have photo evidence and it ain't pretty), and let's just say I've learned my lesson and have been taking it easy with my tweezers since then! The thing is, my eyebrows have always been sparse at both the head and tail, and my arch could use a little more definition. When it comes to my lashes, they are longer at the centre but shorter on the inner and outer corners and are also pin straight and on the lighter side, so unless I give them a curl and apply a coat of mascara, they look almost unnoticeable. And since on most days I don't wear makeup, I appreciate when I can find products that can give my hairs a boost and that don't require having to be removed at the end of the day. Over the years, I've tested a handful of products to make both my brows and lashes stand out, and hands down my top picks would have to be the RapidLash and RapidBrow serums.

Epic Empties | Winter 2018 Edition

winter beauty empties

Spring is near, although it doesn't feel like it quite yet! Just when I thought it was warming up for good, we got hit by yet another snowstorm - Canadian problems, I know. Truth be told, I don't mind snow that much - this last snow dump covered the trees and landscape in a thick white layer and is a real feast for the eyes. Flashback to a couple of days ago on Daylights Savings (when the birds were happily chirping), I decided to film my winter empties, pretty early for once! I had to make the best of this extra daylight, so as tradition holds, I am sharing all of my beauty as well as a couple of random products I've used up over the winter months. It's a rather long one, I still hope you enjoy!

Yves Rocher Elixir Jeunesse | My Anti-Pollution Skincare Routine

yves rocher elixir jeunesse skincare review

We all hear about how important detoxing is for our health and well-being - if you are like me, you get caught up in the daily grind of balancing work life, home life and a social life, that self-care is sometimes put on the back burner, including having a proper skincare routine in place. Having lived in an urban environment my entire life and being exposed to high levels of pollution, I long for days when I get to escape the city for a short while, such as heading to the spa a few hours away in the countryside to breathe in some fresh air (a rare treat for me)! But, there are also many other ways one can detox on the daily, including filling your belly with the good stuff (I follow a plant-based diet and my meals include lots of whole foods such vibrant fruits and leafy greens, starches and beans), drinking lots of water, working out (yoga is a current favourite workout of mine), while also using skincare products that specifically protect the skin against environmental aggressors. This is where Yves Rocher comes in: they have recently come out with their Elixir Jeunesse skincare line*, starring the key ingredient that is the Aphloia plant extract, a small tree shrub native to Madagascar.

Discovering Natural Indie Beauty and Wellness Products with Navago + Giveaway!

Navago Natural Indie Beauty Wellness Products

Over the years, I have come across and featured quite a bit of natural beauty brands, and one thing that always keeps things interesting for me as a blogger when it comes to chatting green beauty is that there are always so many more indie companies out there to be discovered! While it can be nice to get a product that is super popular and raved about by what seems like everyone on the internet, I get that much more excited to find brands I've heard no one else talk about. One of my personal joys is to shine a spotlight on these smaller, non-mainstream companies, and after recently being introduced to NAVAGO*, it's like I hit the jackpot!
