GUGUG Facial Skin Scrubber | Review

GUGUG-facial-skin-scrubber

You all know I'm a skincare fanatic, and nothing gets me more excited to try out something new. When I came across the GUGUG Facial Skin Scrubber* and read the reviews, I couldn't help but wonder if this nifty facial tool was actually effective with it being so affordable. I've never come across anything like it, and what really got me is the different functions it has. I've been putting it to the test over the last couple of weeks and wanted to share my experience with you so far.

Protecia Skincare | Review

protecia-skincare

As a beauty blogger, I have had the great joy of testing many skincare brands over the years and I get the most excited when trying out new up-and-coming brands. I enjoy documenting my thoughts online as I myself always turn to the internet when it comes to reviews of a product I am considering purchasing. That being said, I was recently introduced to Protecia*, a Canadian-founded and Korean-made skincare brand that caters to those of us living in an urban environment. With this lifestyle comes exposure to higher levels of pollution which leads to what has been termed by dermatologists as "city skin," whereby our pores get more clogged, as opposed to if one lived outside of an urban setting. Aimed to protect the skin, Protecia was created to combat dryness, irritation, dark spots and premature aging which often come from living in a metropolitan area. I was so intrigued by the mission statement of Protecia, and I am so excited to share my insights after testing the entire line over the last few weeks.

Keep reading to find out my thoughts on this fabulous facial product!

CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask | Review


Over the years, I have had the chance to try a handful of beauty tools and devices. From a neck massager to a hair removing device and various facial cleansing tools, I love seeing what is out there and what actually performs. It can definitely be overwhelming and I personally love reading more in-depth blog reviews to see if a product is a right fit for my personal needs. I have heard of the amazing benefits that LED light therapy can have for the skin long-term, so I was excited that CurrentBody reached out for me to try their Skin LED Light Therapy Mask*! Praised by the likes of Gal Gadot, Kaley Cuoco, Kate Hudson, Renée Zellweger, Suki Waterhouse, Tati Westbrook and Wayne Goss, this product has received quite the hype and I wanted to share how I've been enjoying it over the last few weeks!

My Winter Skin Saviours | Top 5 Picks


Top 5 Winter Skin Saviours

This winter has been one for the books with many days and nights feeling close to -40°C with wind chill. Now, we are accustomed to frigid temperatures here in Canada in the winter months, but the arctic air sure has been a stubborn guest this month, beating records of extreme cold and my skin sure has taken a beating! Thankfully, I have a trusty water softening system as well as a few body care saviours which together have been of great help to not turn my skin into the Sahara desert. Our skin is our largest organ after all, so I try to treat it as best as I can when it's in need of some extra TLC.

Festive Glam | Full Coverage Makeup Look

Festive Glam Full Coverage Makeup Look

It's the most wonderful time of the year, as they like to say! I always gravitate toward more statement makeup (cue that bold red lip and shimmery shadows) when the holidays roll around, so I figured I would share an easy, full coverage makeup look that can be achieved in a matter of a few minutes.

Zion Health Wellness Products | Review

Zion-Health

I'm always on the lookout for new cruelty-free brands to try out, so I was super excited to be introduced to Zion Health* and a few of their hair and body products. Now, what makes this brand really stand out is that they pride themselves in creating products made out of clay! I've been a long-time fan of this ingredient and even shared a DIY face mask recipe on the blog a few years ago now. Clay has many detoxifying properties and has been used in wellness treatments for centuries. Based out of San Francisco, Zion Health specializes in making products that are natural and made in the USA, with most of their products being vegan! I received a few products to try out, which I've been testing out and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you.

MERIT BEAUTY | Review + Five-Minute Minimalist Makeup Look


These days, the market is so saturated with emerging beauty brands that it takes a lot to grab my attention. Merit Beauty* is one that stood out from the rest to me. The brand was founded by Katherine Power, who is also the co-founder of Avaline Wine alongside Cameron Diaz. I was immediately drawn by the simplicity and ethos of the brand, featuring a small selection of products meant to keep your makeup routine fresh and most importantly, with no harm done as the ingredients are clean and non-toxic. I was excited to put these luxury products to the test in my latest video and share my thoughts and first impressions with you.

EPIC EMPTIES | One Year In The Making


Well, it has happened... I broke my own personal streak of posting my empties seasonally as it's coming up on a year that I haven't shared any on here! Rest assured, I've still been holding onto my used up products and am ready to spill the beans in this virtual show and tell. If you're new here, I enjoy sharing (and watching) empties as to me they are the best way to get a grasp on if a product is actually worth giving a try. No better testament to the performance of a product than hearing someone's thoughts following every last bit of it having been scooped out or scraped off, right?

Lise Watier Diamond Dreams | Holiday Makeup Look

Lise Watier Diamond Dreams Holiday Makeup Look

The most wonderful time of the year is here! I've already gone down the rabbit hole of having Christmas decorations up and have been watching (too) many Hallmark holiday movies (and I'm not ashamed to admit it)! It's also been an insanely long time since I shared a holiday-inspired makeup look (take a trip down memory lane here) so I figure it was about time I got to it! Once my eyes were treated to the Lise Watier Diamond Dreams Collection Set* I knew I had to share it because it is absolutely gorgeous, from the holographic packaging down to the colours and the quality and performance of the makeup itself. For those unfamiliar with the brand, Lise Watier is part of Canada's largest cosmetics brand based here in Montreal and it has been around since 1972. The entire line is cruelty-free and products are made in Italy and available at pharmacies and department stores across Canada as well as online.
