Vichy Idéalia Product Review

smooth fine lines to maintain youthful and radiant skin

During the last few years I’ve noticed a gradual change in my skin. As someone who has combination skin, keeping oiliness at bay and adding minimal moisturization was my skincare ritual for years. However, over the last few years one of the biggest changes I’ve experienced is just how dry my skin has become outside of my T-zone. And more recently I noticed some new fine lines much to my dismay. In retrospect, there was a time when I took my youthful skin for granted and as a result am paying more attention to taking better care of it now.

I was offered Vichy’s Idéalia range to try. Vichy really put some thought into Idealia by exploring the influence of a fast-paced lifestyle and how stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep impact our skin quality. Ummm…guilty as charged. The Idéalia line is an antioxidant complex made up of blueberry extract, fermented black tea extract and Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water (no parabens) to provide visible results in 8 days. The line boasts to even complexion, refine pores and most importantly smooth lines. Excited to try this one? You betcha! Continue reading “Vichy Idéalia Product Review”

May Favourites Roundup

The month of May has been good in terms of newly discovered beauty products and other pretty little things. I wanted to share with you a few of my favourites from this month.

Flowerbomb. What can I say…I mean the name pretty much speaks for itself. Flowerbomb has been on my wishlist for quite some time now and I finally decided to pick one up for myself. I adore so many different perfumes, but this by far has to be my favourite. In my opinion, it’s one of the most beautiful scents out there. You should try it out if you haven’t experienced it yet. Mind blowing.  Continue reading “May Favourites Roundup”

Establishing Hair Goals with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range

Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range 01

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the launch for Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range and left with some samples of the new product. I was really excited to try the line as they sold me with their presentation. I’ll tell you why – for once, someone was speaking hair talk that made sense.

But let me backtrack a little first…in high school I had an English teacher who Continue reading “Establishing Hair Goals with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range”

Essie Gel Couture Bridal Nail Polish Review

essie ss17 nail polish

You may have noticed that my last few posts are focused on beauty. This is for two reasons, the first being I was fortunate to receive some samples of products that are coming out for spring, and secondly, it has been challenging to shoot outfit photos. Whether it be uncooperative weather or conflicts in availability with my photographer, outfit photos just weren’t happening. But in a way it gave me the perfect opportunity to play around with some great products and share the reviews with you.

I think there’s no greater joy in blogging than when bloggers get the opportunity to try new products from a line we already know and love. Case in point Essie nail polish. I’ve been using Essie nail polish throughout the years Continue reading “Essie Gel Couture Bridal Nail Polish Review”
