Blemish Prone Skin? Try these New Blemish Clearing & Pore Refining Products

Looking for clearer skin and tighter pores? Check out these new acne fighting and pore refining products.

Pampering and Rejuvinating at Home with Indeed Labs Hydraluron, Exfoliator, and Nanoblur

Sponsored I'm not the kind of person who treats herself to a day at the spa. I think I've probably only had about 2 facials in my entire life. (OK maybe I need to work on having OTHER people in my life that treat me to a day at the spa ;P). Anyways, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a DIYer when it comes to pampering treatments. I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I

VICHY Purete Thermale Cleansers

Find Your Perfect Cleanser with Vichy Pureté Thermale

As women we all have different expectations from our cleanser without even realizing it. These expectations can change with the seasons and lifestyle. Some look for convenience, others for performance and deep cleaning, other for the sensorial experience and pleasure of the routine. I had no idea just how extensive Vichy's Pureté Thermale cleansing line was. They really have listened to women's needs to offer solutions for situation and mood. They have recently added two new formulas to the line for an impressive selection of 11

Paula’s Choice Skincare Review | Rosacea Kit and More!

For the past few weeks I have been testing out a very complete skincare system and routine from Paula's Choice Skincare. If you aren't familiar with Paula's Choice than I highly recommend checking out the brand. It was founded by the "Cosmetic's Cop" Paula Begoun, the author of Don't Go to The Cosmetics Counter Without Me. I couldn't live without that book when I was younger before beauty blogs and forums became a part of my life. Paula and her research team honestly and scientifically analyze thousands of product formulations for

Give the Gift of Good Skin with these Holiday Skincare Gift Sets

I think skincare gift sets are great for so many reasons. They make a great holiday gift since you don't have to know as much about a person's personal preferences as you would have to in order to gift colour cosmetics or fragrance. You can give a beauty gift that is a little more "one size fits most". They can also give you the opportunity to introduce someone who isn't very knowledgable about skincare, or who isn't very experimental, to some great new products. Finally, what I think is the main reason skincare gift sets are so

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush Review

In September of this year Clinique released it's new Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush ($95 CAD/$89.50 US). Upon first receiving this brush I was sceptical. Most attempted "Clarisonic dupes" fall short, very short. While I haven't tried any newer versions of the Clarisonic, I only have the original Mia from probably 7 years ago, I have to admit I am just as happy using the Clinique Sonic Brush as I am my Clarisonic Mia. I find a sonic brush essential to exfoliate and keep my skin clear of clogged pores and the
