I adore the NUXE Prodigieuse line. The NUXE Huile Prodigieuse is a product every woman needs in her life.

What makes this product stand out so much for me is it's incredible texture and it's beautiful scent. It feels like silk on the skin. The scent

Moroccanoil Thickening Lotion ($32 CAD) is my new must have styling product. If you have fine hair with a half ass curl like I do then I think you will love it!

It is formulated to instantly expand the hair shaft and strengthen each strand without causing frizz or flyaways. It leaves my hair looking and feeling more full and voluminous, even at the
I love keeping my blonde hair very ashen. I like white/silver blonde shades and start panicking when yellow tones start creeping up in my hair. I am so excited to try the new DryBar Blonde Ale system. Most of the purple shampoos & conditioners I've tried have contained products that I try to avoid in my haircare products like sulfates and silicone. The entire DryBar Blonde Ale line is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and they don't test on animals. They not only counteract brassiness and boost shine but also focus
Elizabeth and James NIRVANA Black is one of my signature scents so when I discovered they were releasing new products for hair and body I was VERY excited! While body products in our favourite scents aren't anything new, having access to hair products IS. I think every fragrance brand should look into expanding into more hair and body care products. It's always frustrated me that I could wear my favourite perfume yet have my hair smelling completely different. Even deodorant. Wouldn't it be nice to have every scented product on

Until I recently tested the KEUNE products I had never heard of the brand. Learning about the history of KEUNE I am wondering how on earth this brand could have possibly escaped my knowledge this long. KEUNE was first established back in 1922 by chemist Jan Keune becoming the first perm manufacturer in Europe.
