The Essentials Collection by CLARINS


I’m here to share with you the beautiful: The Essentials Collection. This collection is in collaboration with the PUR PROJECT. “The partnership between Clarins and Pur Projet contributes to the Povos da Floresta reforestation project, which helps to preserve and protect Indian tribes’ rich Amazon ecosystem. With the purchase of this palette, a tree is planted in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and you are helping to support the Ashaninka Indians.”

The collection consists of a stunning Eye Make-up Palette and Lip Comfort Oil. The eyeshadow palette has lovely scattered annatto flowers all over it. I absolutely love this palette and the formula of the eyeshadows are soft, beautiful and blend nicely. They are creamy and smooth. The entire collection and collaboration with the PUR Project is truly amazing and powerful. I love collaborations that help communities.

“The small tree from tropical America produces pink flowers and red fruit in the form of a heart-shaped pod covered in thorns, containing red seeds. A symbol of power for the American Indians who associated its juice with the concept of eternal life, the annatto was used to dye food, objects and fabrics. In addition, it served as ritual body paint and lipstick, as it still does today in Aztec and Mayan communities.” -Clarins


The ten new eyeshadows are beautiful with rosy shades: fresh pink, grey-violet, taupe, violet grey, plum and black violet with a satin effect, beige, smoky pink, aubergine with a matte finish and a touch of pink diamond.

The Essentials Palette – $62.00

Available at Hudson’s Bay and on


For several years Clarins has worked with Pur Project to support Amazonian Indian Communities and in particular the Ashaninka, to help them maintain their autonomy. This has created strong ties. Today Clarins dedicates its new “The Essentials” 2016 Make-up Collection to these communities, to celebrate this special friendship. A collection with two exclusive editions, The Essentials Eye Make-up Palette and Lip Comfort Oil, enriched with key plant ingredient traditionally used by the Ashaninka as make-up.



I swatched  The Essentials Palette  and it applies nicely. I really love the warm colours and found the formula to apply evenly and smoothly. “The annatto seed is the star ingredient of this winter collection. Present in The Essentials Eye Make-up Palette eyeshadows, it helps provide comfort and in Lip Comfort Oil (red berry shade) it nourishes and comforts the lips. *Not shown in this blog post the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil $25.00

Eco responsible pack: A make-up palette that respects the environment.
The material used to make this palette was carefully selected following Clarins eco-responsible charter to reduce product volume and effects on the environment.

ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant -REVIEW

bestdayblogger blog headerIn collaboration with the Canadian Beauty Bloggerscbb-logo-whiteThis is a PR Sample. Not an AD. Not Sponsored.

This is the first time trying Arm & Hammer toothpaste and I must tell you that I’m truly pleased with it. I really love the minty flavour and freshness that it leaves in my mouth. The freshness stays in the mouth for a long time. This toothpaste really cleans my teeth better then any toothpaste I’ve ever used. I’m not just saying this to sell you the product. I really love this toothpaste and I’ll be purchasing this again. I tried my old toothpaste after using ARM & HAMMER for a few weeks and I disliked my old toothpaste. So I’m going to continue using ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant Clean and Fresh and I highly recommend it.

Introducing a fresh, new cleaning sensation! Powerful whitening cleansers give teeth an amazing deep clean plus an invigorating surge of spearmint for long-lasting freshness. Look and feel truly radiant today! Four different cleaning agents whiten and clean teeth. Three unique freshening agents help provide a crisp mint flavor for long-lasting fresh breath. Cleans deep and strengthens tooth enamel. Fresh from the Dentist Feeling of Clean – ARM & HAMMER

ARM & HAMMER Truly Radian Clean & Fresh toothpaste has baking soda in it and I feel this ingredient really helps get into the gum area that other toothpastes don’t. I had a visit to my dentist recently and she said that my gums are not bleeding as much after my usual visits. I feel this is because of ARM & HAMMER toothpaste along with flossing every other day.


It may surprise some to learn that baking soda is actually the least abrasive material for polishing and cleaning teeth. That’s why it’s always been considered such a healthy choice in oral care. By dissolving into fine particles, baking soda gets into areas deep between teeth and along the gum line that other toothpastes can’t reach. It also penetrates into the tiny crevices in tooth enamel to dissolve intrinsic stains. Baking soda in toothpaste not only has ample scientific support, it has a proven track record. As the maker of ARM & HAMMER toothpaste, we’ve been pro-baking soda for over 100 years. Today, dental professionals are realizing that baking soda remains a near-perfect ingredient for toothpaste because of its biological compatibility, ubiquitous nature and especially its low abrasivity. -ARM & HAMMER


I’m very happy with the toothpaste and I’m going to continue using it. I absolutely love the freshness it leaves in my mouth and I love the smooth finish it gives my teeth. It has made my teeth whiter and my smile more radiant!  I highly recommend it! Give it a try and let me know if you see a difference with your teeth. I know it made my teeth look and feel great!

Thank you to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers and thank you to the PR for the amazing Sample. I’m loving my new toothpaste!

Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen – Info & Review

This is a collaboration with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers



New Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreens deliver trusted broad spectrum protection in delightfully light, refreshing formulas that barely leave a trace on the skin. They absorb quickly, feel clean and light on the skin, and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.The ClearlySheer line is designed with her specific needs in mind, and unlike any Coppertone she’s ever tried before. The line includes a Lotion for Body, Spray for Body and Lotion for Face. All three products have an SPF 30 with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, a moisturizing formula to keep skin smooth and soft and a light fresh scent. They are also water resistant up to 80 minutes. ClearlySheer is appropriate for use on sensitive and acne-prone skin. ClearlySheer is available at mass, drug and grocery retailers across Canada as of March 2016. Suggested retail price is $9.99 for the ClearlySheer lotion and spray for body, and $8.49 for the face lotion.


Over the weekend I used the Clearly Sheer Coppertone Spray. It mists very lightly and doesn’t drip or feel greasy. It doesn’t stain my clothing and It distributes evenly. I really love the formula because it is lightweight. It is also fast and easy to use. The Clearly Sheer by Coppertone is what I’ll be using this summer because it has UVA/UVB protection. It is very crucial that I protect my skin from the sun.  I don’t recommend spraying the face though because you are inhaling the product. I just use the spray for the body. For the face use the Clearly Sheer Face because the face formula will not clog pores and will not cause breakout. The formula is also very moisturizing and keeps the skin very smooth. It is water resistant up to 80 minutes. Perfect for swimming and for your summer vacation.

About Nature’s Pure Bliss Skin & Hair Care Indulgence

“Pure & Natural Handmade with Love”

Nature’s Pure Bliss

I kindly received a beautiful exfoliating bar and a luxurious body moisturizer and I’m very excited to share my experience with you. I adore both products and I highly recommend them. They are made in Canada and are handmade with love. The products are all natural and have beautiful ingredients that are great for the skin.

 CAFFEINATOR (Peppermint, grapefruit and Lime)

A beautiful handcrafted cold processed method is used to create all “Nature’s Pure Bliss” Artisan Exfoliating Soaps. The Soaps are all moisturizing and natural. They are vegan, palm-oil free and scented with essential oils. The Blend is 100% Coconut Oil infused with Coconut Milk, shredded Loofah, Volcanic Rock (fine) and Essential Oil blends.  The Caffeinator which I kindly received to review, has Fair Trade Coffee, Dead sea Mineral, Fair Trade Coffee Grounds, Mentha arvensis leaf (peppermint) oil, Citrus paradise (grapefruit) peel oil, Citrus Latifolia Tanaka (lime) oil.

I’ve never used an exfoliating bar before and I have to say that if you want to exfoliate and get rid of dead skin off your body this will definitely do the trick. It smells amazing and it really got rid of all the dead skin on my body. It is a fantastic exfoliating soap. My body has never felt so soft before. You don’t need to press hard when using this bar because of the shredded loofah and coffee grounds. You just need to glide it gently on the skin with water and it will take off all dead skin. If feels really good to use the Caffeinator Exfoliating Soap.


TIPS: Do not use on face. Do not let soap bar sit in water after using it. Use a holder that lets the water drain off. This way the soap doesn’t melt.
