Brittle Nails No More | Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System

Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System

I've been on the lookout for a nail treatment to polish and hydrate my nails for a while now, and having dealt with brittle, peeling nails for many years, a truly effective one has been hard to come by. In the last year, my nail health has significantly improved, and I believe it might be because I cut back on painting my nails, doing so only very rarely for special occasions. I've recently also been using the Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System* to prime, polish and moisturize my nails and have been seeing great results after just a few weeks of use. The line was created by Dr. Dana Stern, a world renown dermatologist who is an expert in the treatment of nail disorders. All ingredients used are high quality and free of harmful chemicals to nourish and restore your nails without compromising your health, with all products being 5-free, vegan and cruelty-free.

Pixi Beauty: A First Look | Makeup + Skin Care Review

Pixi Beauty Makeup Skincare

While I am all for online shopping, for me, nothing beats being able to see cosmetics in person. There are a quite a few brands that I've been coveting that have yet to make their way to retail stores north of the US border, and one of them I can now cross off my lust list is Pixi Beauty as they just entered the Canadian market earlier this year! You can just imagine my delight when I found out that the brand is now available at Shopper's Drug Mart/Pharmaprix. Pixi Beauty was launched in 1999 by renown Swedish-born makeup artist Petra Strand. Initially only available in Europe, Pixi made its ways across the pond to the US a couple of years ago where it can be found at Target online and in stores nationwide. Now the Pharmaprix near me tends to not have the greatest selection of products since it is on the smaller side, and making my way to the makeup aisle there was no Pixi Beauty in sight. Disappointed, I turned the corner and to my surprise spotted a stand-alone display next to the nail polish section - score!

SIBU Sea Berry Therapy | Rescue For Problematic Skin

SIBU Sea Berry Therapy Rescue For Problematic Skin

When I first started looking into more natural products, I was introduced to SIBU and have had the opportunity to try a few more of their products over the years. One of the many reasons I am a fan of this line is that their products are specifically created for those of us with imperfect skin - and I definitely fall into this category as I deal with acne and hyperpigmentation on a regular basis. Sea Buckthorn Berry is the star ingredient, a fruit high in omega 3, 6, 7 and 9s and containing over 190 bioactive compounds - now that's powerful stuff! Grown in the Himalayas, Sea Buckthorn is not only a fantastic topical ingredient to calm reactive skin and improve the overall look of our skin, but it is also highly nutritious when taken internally - something I have yet to try! I've recently been incorporating a few of their products into my routine, namely the SIBU Polishing Facial Cleanser*, Age Defying Eye Cream* and Sea Berry Seed Oil*. I've been enjoying them so much, I just had to feature them!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder Lip Booster Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lip Color

One thing I love about Make Up For Ever is that they are always stepping up their game by releasing new, innovative products or putting a spin on existing products to make them that much better. I have been using their products for many years and I have very rarely been disappointed. The brand has recently added a few products to their Ultra HD line, namely the Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder* and Ultra HD Lip Booster* and they have also come out with a handful of Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lip Colors*, a few of which I have to share with you. Did these new products live up to my expectations? Keep reading to find out!

Morning Get Ready With Me ft. Yves Rocher + GIVEAWAY

Morning Get Ready With Me

One of my favourite things to watch are Get Ready With Me videos - catching a glimpse into someone's everyday life has always been fascinating to me. I am pretty much a creature of habit and enjoy having a set routine, although I will switch things up depending on the season, such as the products I use, food I eat and exercise I do. I have shared quite a few Get Ready With Me videos, however they have typically revolved around makeup, so this time around I wanted to film a more comprehensive video where I show you my actual morning routine where I share my breakfast, skincare routine and other rituals I do to get me ready for the day ahead. This post is in partnership with Yves Rocher*, and I'm excited to share what skincare products I have been enjoying from the brand. Keep reading to find out how you can win an Yves Rocher skincare regimen of your own!
