Epic Empties 2022 | Makeup, Skincare, Hair Care and more!

Epic Empties 2022

It's nearing the end of the year which means my empties bag has started to overflow (eek!)... my sign that it is finally time to sit down and round up all of the products that I've used up - or that I am finally ready to part ways with. I am always shocked by how much I manage to go through, but at the same time, this makes me eager to try something new or make room for an old favorite in my collection. Without further adieu, here are the products that have, for the most part, been getting a lot of love in my life lately!

Pascoe Hyaluronic Body Serum | Review


With summer in full swing, I've been spending a lot of time outdoors, in and out of the pool and on many daily dog walks with my little Mika. I've also been escaping the city on weekend road trips, going on hikes to soak in what nature has to offer. The change in temperatures from air-conditioned spaces to full-on heat and humidity means I've been keeping up with my skincare routine as I tend to have dry skin even in the warmer months. While in the colder months I prefer using a thicker body cream, lotion or balm, I discovered the benefits of body serums which feel lighter and are perfect for summer dress weather. I have been testing a new one out, the Pascoe Hyaluronic Body Serum* - I've been enjoying their Hyaluronic Face Cream and Vitamin C Serum Intensive Care on my face and it was time for me to shine some light on their body care!

Pascoe Hyaluronic Face Cream | Review


If you are a regular reader of this blog, you might remember a recent review I wrote on the Pascoe Vitamin C Serum Intensive Care which I have quickly added to my daily routine, and today I am back with a no-fuss moisturizer that has become an everyday staple of mine, the Pascoe Hyaluronic Face Cream*. I had personally not heard of Pascoe up until a few months ago and have really been enjoying their products so far this year.

Sunkissed Summer Makeup ☀️ Get Ready With Me + Cuba Trip Recap


Last month, I got to escape to Cuba for a week and it was a wonderful reset and escape, not having travelled abroad in almost four years. It was a great reminder of all that the world has to offer and I enjoyed my stay at the Playa Paraíso all-inclusive resort in Cayo Coco. Scroll to the bottom for all the tropical vibes! Now that I have a bit more colour (yay for sunkissed skin!), I've been loving playing with peachy pinks and bronzy blush and highlighter which you will see I used in this summery makeup look.

GUGUG Facial Skin Scrubber | Review


You all know I'm a skincare fanatic, and nothing gets me more excited than to try 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


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.

Pascoe*, a German brand that was founded in 1895 and that specializes in natural health care products as well as supplements. I was thrilled to see that they have their own skincare line, and was excited to get my hands on their Vitamin C Serum Intensive Care which I've had the pleasure of testing out over the last couple of 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*!

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.
