As I'm sure is the case for many of us, when I first started dabbling in all things skincare, I feared to apply oils directly on my face. As a teenager, I had oilier skin and as someone who deals with acne on the regular, the thought of oils actually helping and not making my skin break out more didn't make sense to me. As I learned, the right oil or oil blend for your skin will help maintain your moisture barrier and also make your skin more resilient thanks to the high vitamin content and antioxidants that will nourish, strengthen and protect it.

I've been itching to film a makeup tutorial since it's been ages since I've done one, and with some sunny weather finally cooperating, I knew it was a sign to get on it! I've been keeping my makeup pretty simple these days, nothing too complicated or time-consuming. I have been doing a few steps differently though which I find make for a positive change, which I share with you in this Chatty Get Ready With Me. I also talk about chopping a chunk of my hair off on my own earlier this week, so if you'd like to know if it was a triumphant success or a major fail, you'll have to tune in to find out! I also fill you in on what new tools and techniques I've incorporated into my skincare routine and that have been total game changers. If you would like me to do a separate post on these, do let me know!

It's no secret that I enjoy discovering new skincare brands, especially when they are mindful of the ingredients they include in their products. Over years of testing, I've had the chance to try out hundreds of products, and I get just as excited today as I did in my early blogging days when a new range makes its way onto my test shelf. One such brand that has recently piqued my curiosity is Vital Face Care*, a Canadian brand that has just recently launched. I was drawn to this line for a few reasons: 1) they are cruelty-free, 2) they incorporate naturally-derived and organic ingredients, and 3) from a marketing standpoint, I got sucked in with their vibrant packaging and clever product names. The true testament to their apparent greatness: are these products as amazing as they sound? Let's dive right into it, shall we?
