Transitioning Beauty and Skincare from Summer to Fall

With the Fall season almost in full swing and winter just around the corner, us Canadian gals need to up our beauty routines to adapt to the harsh(er) climate. While I wish I lived in California and could avoid winter altogether – I don’t. So I just gotta suck it up and prepare as best as I can.

In this post I’ve rounded up a few of my current faves for transitioning beauty and skincare from summer to fall. So…grab a PSL, sit back and have a read.

Perfect Summer Hair with Kérastase

Perfect Summer Hair with Kérastase

Kérastase. I mean, wow, what can I say that anybody who’s ever used Kérastase  doesn’t already know? It’s pretty incredible stuff. The last few months were packed packed with concerts so perfect summer hair for festival season was a must. I was more than happy to try out the Densifique and Couture Styling lines that I received from Kérastase to see if I could get perfect hair for festival season.

Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Review

Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis
A little while ago I attended an event celebrating Roger & Gallet’s Sephora launch and their new Aura Mirabilis skincare line. If the set up and presentation of the event was any indication of what to expect from the line – we were in for a treat! The Roger & Gallet range was presented in the most marvellous fashion, a feast of beauty fit for royalty. And speaking of which, there was a throne room as well!

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.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume

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”
