Paula's Choice Skincare has recently made some new additions to the Resist lineup. I adore Paula's Choice skincare because you know it is going to be full of proven skincare actives, packaged in hygienic and airtight packaging, and it's not going to include any extra nonsense or irritants. I can feel confident in all the products in the Paula's Choice line without feeling I need to play detective with the ingredients listings.

Exactly what I need!

Phloretin CF shields skin from damaging free radicals as it
A lot of skincare crosses my desk, and it isn't often I get truly excited about a new product. Given skincare takes such a long time to properly test, there is only so many products I can dedicate my time (or face) to for full reviews. Recently I met with Roger Southin, the president of Jouviance, to hear all about their latest skincare innovation; the Jouviance RestructivSRD Glyco|Laser Soft Peels. This range of products offer a variety of options to give yourself the benefits of a soft skin peel at home using Glycolic Acid, as
Indeed Labs recently introduced two new products to their skincare range. The Fillume Volumising Serum ($29.99 CAD) and Fillume Volumising Moisturiser ($24.99 CAD) are formulated to improve the visible signs of aging in your skin. They mostly focus on addressing the loss of facial volume we experience as we age and work to plump, firm, and smooth skin to counteract these aging effect. I absolutely love Indeed Labs packaging.

Sponsored Today's post wraps up my month long journey testing out the new Lise Watier Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum ($84 CAD). Over the past few weeks I've been telling you more about this potent product and giving you updates on my progress. Now skincare takes time to work, and I'm a little critical when it comes to skincare, so as far as my results updates were concerned I was pretty restrained in my feedback. I was seeing a nice glow to my skin, and it was starting to look and feel a little smoother. Hey,

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

Sponsored I am so excited to introduce you to a month long journey that begins today on Perilously Pale.

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
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
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,
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
I posted back in March about the Paula's Choice Skincare I had been using (and LOVING). Here is a refresher of the products in my arsenal, their current status, and my repurchase plans.

Thanks to Cellumis for sponsoring this conversation. Given my lifetime of dry skin and my ever advancing age, *sigh*, I am always on the hunt for skincare products that will help reduce the aging my skin has already incurred while preventing further damage. Earlier this week I started testing out a new skincare duo that I would like to introduce you to. The Cellumis Age Defying Serum contains Densiskin® and Matrixyl®3000. This combination helps reduce signs of aging like pore size, hyper-pigmentation and age spots, and
