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!

Make Up For Ever Artist Color Shadows + Step 1 Skin Equalizer Eye & Lip Primer

make up for ever artist color shadow M500 M650 I528 I648 S814 ME728 ME612 M608 D826 step 1 skin equalizer eye lip primer

Back in 2014, I shared a review of the Artist Shadows that Make Up For Ever had just come out with after previewing them at an event. Fast forward four years later, Make Up For Ever has replaced these with the Artist Color Shadows* (C$22 / US$17 each, 2.5g or 0.08 oz), a new line which includes 121 shades, similarly named according to five different finishes: Diamond (D), Matte (M), Metallic (ME), Satin (S) and Iridescent (I). You can purchase these pan refills individually to create you own palette. The main visual difference is that the new pans are rectangular as opposed to circular to go with their Artist Color Refillable Makeup Palette magnetic system, which also works with their highlight, sculpt and blush powders. I was personally a fan of the previous formula, so I was curious to see how the new-and-improved version would compare.

Valentine's Day Makeup Look | Copper Rose Eyes and Nude Lips

Valentine's Day Makeup Look Copper Rose Eyes Nude Lips

I wanted to create a romantic look to celebrate the month of love, and filmed my transformation from start to finish! In this Get Ready With Me, I'm featuring some new products I have been loving lately - the eyeshadows I used are a dream to work with, and I seriously cannot get enough of this liquid lipstick. Even though I created this look with Valentine's Day in mind, I think it would be great for a night out or a special event, too!
