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

Protection and Escape from the Sun No Matter Where You Are with Parasun

Being fair skinned and fair haired I do not deal well with the sun. Not only do I want to protect my skin from sun damage I also can't tolerate being out in the sun for very long before it starts making me feel ill. While a sun hat is handy for protecting your face from the sun's damaging rays it also ruins your hair. I have curly hair and the last thing I want is flat hat head! I need more than just a hat. I need SHADE! If it's a hot day with strong sun I will always search out any shade I can find. Unfortunately at my cottage

Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill  Perilously Pale  - 2

Improving Facial Volume & Structure with the New Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill Serum

Sponsored The big "Four Oh" is quickly approaching, and frankly I'm not sure how I'm going to react. Rationally I don't really care how old I am. I don't think turning 40 is going to propel me into any kind of emotional crisis. But part of me knows that I may not react as rationally as I expect to. I am noticing changes as I age, and those changes are already proving challenging to my confidence level. I find gravity is beginning to take its toll, and as the elasticity and volume wanes in my skin, the areas around my mouth and

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

Brand Spotlight on Riversol Skincare Including 15% Off Promo Code and Giveaway!

Sponsored A few weeks ago I shared a new skincare brand I'd discovered called Riversol. Today I wanted to take the opportunity today to delve deeper into the brand's history and let you in on why I was so impressed with the products they offer. Riversol's founder, Dr. Jason Rivers, worked with a team of scientists for years to create Riversol products. He went through this process because there was simply nothing on the market he felt confident enough in to recommend to his patients. Too many luxury lines contain fragrances,

3 Canadian Brands I’m Loving to Pamper, Fight Aging, and Teatox for a Better You

Soap Stories is a Canadian brand with manufacturing locations and stores in both Canada and abroad. They offer handmade soaps, body care products, and gift sets. The soaps ($12 CAD ea) are absolutely beautiful and they smell incredible. I've been testing out the Lemongrass and Honeysuckle soaps and they are so delightful. They smell amazing. Even my husband is in love with the Lemongrass soap. The only thing is with their large, rectangular shape they are difficult suckers to keep a hold of when wet and slippery! The Natural
