February 2016 – Glossybox Review

My First Glossybox For those of you that are not well versed in the world of beauty subscription boxes, you’re missing out! The premise of Glossyboxes are simple – it’s a box subscription service whereby you pay $21/month (free shipping within the US), and receive a selection of five beauty products from various brands. It’s a great budget method of testing different products without committing to paying full price for products. The February Glossybox appeared in my mailbox – let’s take a look inside……. First of all – the box! I do love good packaging – it makes the overall experience…

Review: Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask

Hello lovelies! I would love to share another one of my favourite products from Laneige. This korean brand has definitely swooped in over these past few weeks and completely taken over my current skincare regime! Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask This is such a wonderful mask. Laneige has such lovely packaging! I love the shape and colour, and the bottle itself is durable. It comes with a small spatula which is quite thoughtful, although I just use my fingers. The Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack is an ultra-nourishing treatment that soothes and supports firmness in skin. It claims to be made with antioxidants…

I had a brief fling with Luview cleansers, and some nice samples from the Missha Super Aqua line. That all changed after Sephora introduced…

Clear Skin with Neutrogena – Oil-Free & Pink Grapefruit Solutions Review!

Here we are… a very cold and grey 2016! We were doing so well – I truly believe we were going to get through winter with the 10C+ temperatures unscathed… Although we seem to have avoided the 4-foot snow piles (for now), the weather is still harsh against my sensitive skin. Lately, I have been facing a series of unfortunate breakouts – I’m sure it’s because of the harsh, icy temperatures, or the relentless dry winds. I wish it was socially acceptable to wear ski masks out in public without looking like I’m about the rob a bank, because I’d…

My Skincare Essentials

The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Bath

Hello lovelies! I don’t know about you, but it’s getting quite chilly here in Toronto. (Canada? Cold? You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me!) I know right – who would’ve thought! The drop in temperatures gives me that extra excuse to cozy up in the evenings and bundle myself up. The stress of Christmas shopping, cold air, and hectic social schedules can really catch up on a girl! All the better to take a bath…right? Take a bath! I absolutely love taking baths. I know some prefer showers but I think that taking a nice long soak can help relax muscles and sweat…
