New Skincare Loves – Laneige Advanced Hydration Kit & Review!

Korean cosmetics. Korean skincare. Gimme gimme gimme! I’ve been using Korean skincare products for years now. I used Skin79’s BB creams religiously during my early days of makeup discovery. I later discovered brands such as Lioele, Etude House, and Missha, and subsequently fell in love with the world of Korean cosmetics.  I hardly ventured into Korean skincare products as I had already found a few holy grail products and hesitated at switching up my skincare regime. 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…

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 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…

Korres Wild Rose Brightening Set

Ah yes, Christmas season has begun! I’m always instantly drawn to the Beauty Boutique section of Shoppers Drug Mart as brands start to release their holiday gift sets! Korres has been great with releases this year, offering a few different sets with trial and full sized items. I picked up this gift set earlier this week because I’m almost done my Wild Rose Advanced Sleeping Facial – a thick and luxurious night cream which restores and hydrates my skin overnight! I’ve been wanting to try the other items in the Wild Rose range but never went ahead due to the…

Bioderma – Anti-Redness and Sensitive Skin Holiday Kit

Hello lovelies! I’ve been on a huge skincare kick these past few weeks. After discovering the Bioderma skin care trial kits, I’ve been addicted to the brand! I’ve used Bioderma in the past (bought two bottles of their micellar cleansing water in France), but have only recently expanded to their collections in Shoppers Drug Mart. Fortunately for me, SDM carry a huge array of Bioderma products! I’ve always struggled with redness and rosacea on my face. Whilst browsing the aisles in Eaton Centre’s Beauty Boutique, I noticed that Bioderma had released a holiday trial kit for sensitive skin and redness!…
