2) bkr 500ml Glass Bottle + Silicone Sleeve ($30 US) – I am so in love with this reusable glass water bottle. Glass bottles have always made me feel uncomfortable because I always worry they can break. The silicone sleeves on the bkr bottles make the bottles so comfortable to hold and resistant to breaking. The 1″ opening is the perfect size. They are super cute and come in a huge assortment of colours. I just love everything about these. They also have amazing customer service and replacement policy if you break one. I dropped mine getting out of the car and got a chip in the bottom and they replaced it for me for free. I just had to pay shipping.

5) Live Clean Age Resist Hair Care Line - I am in love with this new hair care line from Live Clean. It gives you the silkiest, shiniest hair without the buildup associated with silicones thanks to their natural alternative to silicone. I wish I had discovered this prior to cutting my hair off because I think I could have finally sported wavy hair without it looking like a frizzy mess! The line is both silicone and sulphate free which is a must for my fine, damaged, colour treated hair. Age Resist’s Thick-Bond Protein™ optimizes penetration of moisture into the hair’s cortex, conditioning hair from the inside out. The continuous protective film-forming properties of this protein fill in damaged gaps, shield and attach to the hair shaft, building volume. 96-99 per cent plant derived. Paraben, Phthalate and Phosphate free. SLS/Sulfate and petroleum free; DEA free

6) EcoTools Pure Complexion Sensitive Skin Facial Sponge ($11.99 CAD) and 7) Skin Perfecting Brush ($9.99 CAD) – this new vegetable fibre sponge cleanses with 100% natural ingredients and is fragrance-free and colorant free (not to mention really cool looking and feeling). I love EcoTools brushes and this new angled brush that is designed for use with BB/CC Creams works great for applying any foundation and the shape makes it easy to access hard to reach areas of the face.

8) Tom’s of Maine Toothpastes – Since my kids end up swallowing more of their toothpaste than they manage to spit out I love these fun tasting, fluoride-free, natural and gentle cleansing alternatives. They even have a whitening version for us coffee and wine drinking grown ups.

How Vichy Skincare Saved My Dry Winter Skin in Preparation for Spring

Vichy

Vichy’s scientific skincare expert Dr. Sarah Gora made some personalized skincare recommendations to help me deal with my dry and dehydrated skin. I must say she was bang on in her recommendations because my skin has made a rather dramatic turnaround. The dryness and tightness is gone as well as any flakiness and most of the redness. The recommended products were:

Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water ($9.50 US for travel size shown) – I spray this on my skin after cleansing prior to applying my skincare. The Vichy Thermal Spa Water contains a unique combination of 15 rare minerals and it feels so cool and refreshing. I am really loving this added step in my routine.

Purete Thermale Soothing Cleansing Milk for Dry Sensitive Skin ($18 US) – I use this cream cleanser after removing makeup with my cleansing oil. It is enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E and hydrating glycerin and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.

Aqualia Thermal Daily Care Rich Cream ($31 US) – I use this cream often in the mornings to leave my skin plump, hydrated and ready for makeup.

LiftActiv Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Care for Dry to Very Dry Skin ($50 US) – This rich cream contains 6% shea butter and 5% Rhamnose which is a naturally derived plant sugar proven to help boost skin rejuvenation. I’ve been loving adding a dropper full of Vichy Neovadiol Elixir facial oil into the LiftActiv cream for an intensely hydrating overnight facial a couple times a week.

Since I am prone to clogged pores on my nose I would skip the richer moisturizers in this area some evenings and apply Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot to keep that area clear.

Now that my skin feels hydrated, plump, and healthy I am going to finally delve into the Vichy line testing out the Vichy LiftActive Advanced Concentrate Daily Wrinkle Corrector and the Vichy Idealia Life Serum and treat my skin to some night treatments with the Vichy ProEVEN Night Overnight Concentrate.

Boost Your Skin’s Glow with Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

Clarins Glow Booster 1

The new Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster ($30 CAD/$30 US) has got to be one of the most genius products I’ve seen in a while. It is just so perfect! It is a made-to-measure self tan product.

Clarins Glow Booster 2

The cute 15ml vial/bottle holds the self-tanning liquid that you can add to your favourite moisturizer. Simply press the bottom of the vial to dispense 2-3 drops which is all you need to build a natural and beautiful colour that gives your complexion that added radiance and glow. No gross self tanner smell and no worrying about finding a formula that works with your skin and doesn’t break you out or cause sensitivity. You don’t have to add another topical product to your routine. You simply mix the drops of Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster with the product you are already using. One bottle will last you about 3 months.

Clarins Glow Booster 3

Very precise quantities of natural DHA and erythrulose were studied by Clarins Research, resulting in a formula that promotes a very natural-looking tanned colour. It gives fair complexions a pretty sun-kissed glow and warms darker complexions in just a few hours. You can also adjust the intensity of the tan by reapplying every day, until the desired colour is obtained. When the product is no longer applied, the tan gradually fades.

Shown with the Clarins HydraQuench Cream for Normal to Dry Skin. I perfect combo transitioning from dry winter ravaged skin into spring.

Clarins Glow Booster 4

I am loving the incredibly natural results this product offers and the way I can customize it’s use to suit me perfectly. I like my fair skin so I like that I can use it very moderately to give me a little bit of healthy colour and balance out my skin with my freckles while looking completely natural.
