Getting a Healthy Glowing Complexion with Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Skin Tone Perfector

My skin is dry year round, and the  fall and winter months prove especially trying. I find I can never bring enough moisture to my skin. Dry, sensitive skin can make the cold weather down right miserable. It can also be incredibly aging over the long term. The Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale skincare range is all about offering maximum hydration to sensitive skin which sounds exactly like the kind of products I need in my routine. In September 2015 Avène adds a new product to the Hydrance Optimale line. The Eau

The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream Review | A Perfect Product for Teens

While The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream ($15 CAD/40 ml) may not be suited to my dry, aging skin it IS the perfect product for teen girls. This easy and convenient product moisturizes, treats blemishes, and offers sheer coverage all in one easy step. I tested the shade 01 Light and it was perfect. Often I find BB cream type products only come in a light-medium shade that is far too dark for fair skin tones. The Body Shop Tea Tree BB in Light is indeed very light and I didn't experience any oxidization through the day. I

Stila CC Color Correction Cream, Deep Burgundy Smudge Stick, Scarlet Vinyl Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss | Photos, Swatches, Review

Stila is a brand I have had very limited experiences with. Actually I think the only product I had ever tried from them was the Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liner in Rock Candy 3 years ago. Wow how has three years passed since then! I was very excited to have a sampling of Stila products to try out. Especially the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner ($26 CAD) in Deep Burgundy. I have been wanting to try these raved about liners forever. Every time I see someone wearing Mint Julep my heart sets a flutter. I really don't know how

Lancome Bienfait Multi-Teinte BB Cream in 1 Natural – Photos, Swatches, Review

Lately I have been wearing a BB Cream most days. If I am not really up to anything "special" then I prefer the ease of just quickly throwing on a tinted moisturizer type product with a good level of sun protection so that my skin is protected and looks a little more even toned. I have tested several BB Cream products but it isn't often that one makes it into my regular rotation. The new Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital Teinte ($58 CND) has done just that because it meets my criteria of dewy coverage and SPF of at least 30. The

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review



I wasn't sure what to expect when I began testing the Urban Decay's new Naked Skin Beauty Balm. I had seen some other reviews and had the impression that it may be too dark for my skin and had also heard it had a bit of a tacky feel. Well I'm very happy to report that neither of those issues were present for me. The packaging of the Beauty Balm itself is squeeze tube packaging which I love for the sanitary aspects, lack of trapped/wasted product, and travel friendliness. I thought I would show you all four
