How To Treat Excessive Sweating with Dermadry | Review + Demo

Dermadry Iontophoresis Machine

We've all been there - sweating profusely during a presentation, following an intense workout or when enduring a heatwave. While sweating is a natural bodily function that helps regulate our body temperature, it can become problematic when excessive sweating is not solely caused by a fight-or-flight response, an intense workout or exposure to heat and becomes an embarrassing inconvenience. The reality is, approximately 20% of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, the scientific term for excessive sweating, which can occur with no physical exertion or external triggers. In recent years, this is something I have been dealing with, and while I suffer from this on a mild to moderate level, I personally know someone for whom it is more severe and has become a daily struggle. Thankfully, you don't have to rely on strong antiperspirants or seek more invasive Botox injections or even a sympathectomy surgery, as there is an effective and safe way to treat hyperhidrosis from the comfort of your own home, and that is by using an iontophoresis device, a welcomed solution thanks to Dermadry*.

Sephora and Hudson's Bay Clean Beauty Haul

Sephora Hudson's Bay Clean Beauty Haul

I feel like it's been ages since I shared a beauty haul, something I would often do in my early blogging days - so it's been long overdue! I recently placed a few mini orders on both Sephora and Hudson's Bay, so I figured I would share some of my long lusted over purchases, you know, in case you needed to be enabled (basically the story of my life whenever I read other blogs)! As you will see, these are all skincare products, which you may have already noticed is a category I am a huge sucker for, and they all happen to be clean and natural as well - yay!

Gold Elements Luxury Skin Care with 24K Gold and Truffles | Review

Gold Elements Intensive Multi Task Facial Cleanser D'Or Facial Cream Truffle Infusion Body Butter

I have recently been awakened to the benefits of gold in skin care, and I have since been testing out a handful of gold-infused products by Gold Elements*. When researching, I learned that gold has been used in cosmetics for centuries, dating back to ancient Egypt. Apparently, Cleopatra would apply a gold mask at bedtime to maintain a youthful glow, and in Ancient Rome, it is said to have been used to treat a slew of skin ailments. Since gold is known for its property to remain unchanged and untarnished by time and the environment, it only makes sense that this natural element can also be used to enhance one's natural beauty while providing anti-aging benefits when applied topically! Let me break down how my skin care routine has been taken to the next level thanks to Gold Elements.

Keeping Warm with Noize Original Vegan Outerwear

Noize Original Joyce Jacket Oversized Hood Vegan Leather Sleeve

I don't know about the weather where you are, but the cold has really started to hit hard here in Montreal! Nights have been dipping below zero degrees Celsius, and as I am writing this the first snowfall of the season is blanketing the night view outside my window - same day these photos were shot. Talk about a quick change in landscape! In true Canadian fashion (pun intended - you'll understand as you keep reading!), I am all about bundling up and always look for outerwear that will stand the test of a cold front and snowfall to keep me warm and dry. So when Noize Original* reached out asking if I would like to try one of their jackets, I thought well, perfect timing!

Dry Skin Saviours with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion Swivel Stick Original Solid Jar

My skin has been in need of some major TLC ever since returning from my recent trip! I always seem to forget how dry my skin gets during and after travelling, in between the dry cabin air, quickly alternating between warm summer and cool fall temperatures from experiencing different climates, and my skin no longer being used to hard water. Thankfully, the most perfect care package from Palmer's* landed on my doorstep when I returned - talk about perfect timing! I've been a fan of the brand for years, having tried their Cocoa Butter Formula for both face and body, and most recently their Coconut Oil Formula, so I was super excited to dive back into their Cocoa Butter Formula line and try out an old favourite as well as a couple of new-to-me additions. Not only does this range contain pure and natural cocoa butter, but it is also packed with vitamins A, C and E and antioxidants to both prevent and soothe dry skin.

Europe Travel Diary | London, Paris, Nice, Monaco, Brussels and Amsterdam

"Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living." 
- Mary Ritter Beard

I've recently returned from the most amazing Eurotrip! It was jam-packed with a lot of city-hopping: 17 days, 5 countries, 6 cities, 7 flights (as well as taking a lot of ground transportation and walking) and 7 accommodations later, I've come back home with memories that will last me a lifetime. In case you missed it, I shared a Pack With Me in my last post in which I showed everything I brought with me on this specific trip - things I surprisingly managed to fit into a single carry-on suitcase! We started our journey off in London and then made our way to Paris. We got to experience an extended summer in both Nice and Monaco and finished our adventures off by visiting Brussels and Amsterdam. We opted to stay at both hotels and Airbnbs (First time trying? Get $45 CAD in travel credit when you sign up*)! Sometimes videos and photographs speak louder than words, so I thought I would share my travel photo diary with you below (get ready to scroll!), along with a travel vlog that captures the highlights of my European travels. I hope you enjoy!

Pack With Me For Europe! | How To Pack Carry-On Only

Pack With Me For Europe How To Pack Carry-On Only

Eeeek! I'm so pumped to be going back to Europe in just a few days! I will be visiting four countries I've yet to have had the chance to explore, all in the span of 17 days: England, France, Belgium and The Netherlands. I've taken on the challenge to take only a carry-on with me on this longer trip, and I figured I would show you just how and what I am packing. We will be staying in both AirBnbs and hotels, and since we will have access to washing machines, it only made sense to lessen our load (and wait time at the airports!) since we will be moving around so much.

EPIC EMPTIES + DECLUTTER | Summer 2018 Edition

Epic Empties Declutter Summer 2018

It's the last week of summer, and I must say I am not ready for fall to settle in just yet. I know I am the odd one out, but I personally thrive when it's warm and sunny out! That being said, I am ready to part ways will all the beauty products I managed to finish up these last few months. I did a bit of a declutter as well as I had products that were taking up space and that were way past their expiration date (oops)! I always enjoy sharing this type of content since I cannot blog about every product individually and this way I get to provide you with bite-size reviews in video form. I cover not only makeup but also skin care, body care, hair care, fragrance and a few miscellaneous items too!

Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Foundation | First Impression + Wear Test!

Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Foundation Y235 Review

If I had to narrow down which makeup product I enjoy testing out the most, I would have to go with foundation. Since I have problem skin, it's what makes the most noticeable difference in my skin! I used to be all about full coverage foundations, but in recent years have grown to enjoy makeup bases that provide less coverage. The "matte but not flat" look seems to be in at the moment, so when I received the new Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Foundation*, I was curious to see if it lived up to its claims. I figured I would film a first impression video and show you how this foundation wears throughout the day to give you a better idea of how it performs.

My Detox Routine + 3 Super Easy Healthy Vegan Recipes

Yves Rocher Antipollution Detox Hair Care

I view detoxing as all-encompassing: not only is it something that is good for my physical body but being able to detox my mind is also something I regard as highly beneficial for my well-being (and definitely a challenge)! I personally enjoy incorporating more eco-friendly products into my routine, eating plant-based meals and also meditating each day. What I put inside my body is just as important as what I apply to it - same goes for my personal thoughts and the external stimuli that consume my mind, and by the same token the knowledge and information I assimilate. I also think a detox is not something that can be quickly achieved with a magic pill but is instead an ongoing practice that you should dedicate time to each and every day. I am excited to be partnering with Yves Rocher* to show you a few of the ways I like to detox, ranging from their NEW Antipollution line, my meditation practice and some of my current favourite healthy vegan recipes!

What's In My Bag? | Adrienne Vittadini Crossbody Bag Review

What's In My Bag Adrienne Vittadini Crossbody Bag Review

I am one of those people who cannot be bothered switching out my handbags, so I wear the same bag over and over again for years, and that all year long! Sadly, my beloved bag I have been using for the last couple of years has seen better days so I was on the hunt for a new one. I decided to stop at Marshalls and was about to leave empty-handed until I spotted this Adrienne Vittadini Crossbody Bag tucked at the back of a rack. I was immediately drawn to its shape, size and colour, and I knew it was a done deal once I tried it on. This style is unlike anything I've owned before, and I've been enjoying it so much that I figured I would feature it in a What's In My Bag since it's been a while since I've shared one! I love seeing what are others' on-the-go essentials, so I hope you enjoy!

Healthy Glow Makeup Look + Pixi Beauty Giveaway!

Healthy Glow Makeup Tutorial

Lately, I've been all about that healthy, radiant glow when it comes to my makeup! My tip? Using products that provide radiance step by step, instead of focusing on just one product (ex: packing on the highlighter), which I find gives an overall more natural-looking result. From a glowy primer to a glimmery liquid lip, I'm showing you how I achieve this radiance using some of my favourite products at the moment, many of which happen to be by Pixi Beauty. Keep reading to find out how you could win some of the products featured in this tutorial!
