WINTER MUST-HAVES

banner blog pink

It’s never too early to shop for winter. Especially items that will keep you cozy and warm. I’m so excited to share my favourite Winter Must-Haves. I hope you love them as much as I do.

A huge part of my Winter routine includes a lot of creams and oils. I always apply oil on my skin and hair because everything gets dry. I’ve been really loving Indeed Laboratories lightweight facial oil and Indeed Laboratories Nanoblur colour corrector. These two really hydrate my skin and lock in essential moisture. The Facial oil is derived from 100% sugarcane. It really reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and has improved my skins moisture balance. The colour corrector neutralizes pigment and works by helping reduce redness while locking in moisture. This formula really makes my skin feel smooth and velvety.

*Indeed Laboratories Squalane Lightweight Facial oil is $19.99 and Indeed Laboratories Nanoblur Colour Corrector, Green is $16.99 and is available at Shoppers Drugmart.

Top 10 Ways to BEST DAY your Skin!

I’m here to share my Top 10 ways to BEST DAY YOUR SKIN! Do you want to help your skin look and feel better? I hope this post will help you do just that.  The number one thing for me is drinking water. Always stay hydrated. The biggest part of our body is the epidermis and it’s important to keep it moisturized and healthy.

water.jpg

I know everyone has different skin concerns therefore choose products that have specific solutions for your needs. Oily skin needs different products then dry skin. It could be fine lines, hydration, age spots, sun damage, big pores, acne or rosacea. You can have multiple concerns. The products and tips posted in this post work best for my skin.

img_2002

I have normal to combination skin. I also have fine lines, sun damage and my skin needs hydration. I love to use cream products in the winter and use light/gel products in the summer. I follow this skincare routine morning and night and I also apply Sunscreen with a high UVA-UVB protection everyday. My two favourite sunscreens are CLARINS UV 50 Multi-Protection and Garnier Obrelle 60 for the face. Do you have a favourite sunscreen for the face? Please let me know in the comments. Face products are different then body skincare. This post is for the face, under eyes and neck.

TEN STEPS TO BEST DAY YOUR SKIN!

1. Drink Water

It’s important to stay hydrated. I make sure to drink lots of water and it doesn’t have to be boring. It can be infused water with fruits and herbs. Like mint and lemon. Orange and strawberries. You can also have tea, juice and coffee. Have fun with it and drink up!

2. Exfoliate/ Clean the Skin

I’ve been using and enjoying idc exfoliating cream and Marcelle Gentle Exfoliating cream. Both these products can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart. I also love Marcelle gentle face cleanser which I’ve finished and need to buy another one. It’s so gentle and does the job right.

3. Tone 

I like to use toner. It feels like it makes my skin look and feel good. I really love pixi glow Tonic. I use a cotton pad and apply it to the pad and gently sweep it from the centre of my face upwards. I feel that pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic makes my skin really glow and feel good.

23

4. Serum

My favourite thing to do after I tone my skin is apply serum and let it soak in for five to ten minutes. I’ve been using the Dior serums and I really love them. I also finished and adore the No7 Serum and the CLARINS Hydra essential Serum. I feel serums are super important and give the skin the detail attention it needs. My skin’s needs are always hydration, fine lines, age spots and sun damage. Every product caters to different needs so get to know what you need for your skin.

5. Face Cream

It is important for my skin to stay hydrated all day. First thing in the morning I make sure I apply a sunscreen to protect my skin from the the UV rays. If my face cream doesn’t have protection I apply it separately. I also look for a cream that has age defying properties. My favourite cream at the moment is DIOR Capture Youth cream. I also use and love No7, ANEW Cream by AVON, CLARINS Hydra Essential, IDC and NIVEA Cream.

128943511624129

6. Under Eye and Neck Cream

The skin under our eyes is different from the face. It is more delicate therefore needs a light but effective cream. It’s important to get a separate cream for under the eyes and neck. My two favourite under eye creams are the ANEW Eye lift dual system and CHANEL Blue Serum Eye. I also used up my Clinique eye gel and I absolutely loved it!

I love the FIRM AND SCULPT for the neck and chest by AVON. It’s the ANEW PLATINUM CREAM. Very hydrating and great results!

4546

7. Face Oil

I’m a big fan of face oil. I apply the oil right before bed because I find it really hydrates my skin. It doesn’t clog my pores at all. I wake up with my skin so soft and silky. My favourite skin oils are No7 Youthful Face and CLARINS Orchid oil which I’ve finished.

img_2685

8. Face Masks

Face masks are super hydrating and relaxing. They can help detox and clean the skin as well. I use them two times a week. It’s a MUST in my skincare routine. Sometimes it’s a wet to dry face mask, an overnight face mask and sometimes a sheet mask. Here are some fantastic choices: AVON Beauty boost helps detox, Avon sheet masks helps hydrate and brighten. I love Dior one minute mask because it is silky and makes my skin supple and soft. One really soothing and hydrating face mask is KORRES Wild Rose. Absolutely amazing and it is gentle and soothing. A must try!

5052475031

The CHANEL LE LIFT Overnight Face mask is also incredible. I’m almost finished it and highly recommend it.

Another favourite is the GARNIER SkinActive. Goes on wet and dries nicely.  It can be used as a mask and cleanser. It gives a lovely cooling effect and I love how it deep cleans and leaves my skin feeling so good and refreshed.

9. Eat Good Fats & Vitamins

Food can really help our hair and skin. Good Fats like nuts, seeds and fish are very good for the complexion. Also take your multivitamins.

10. Sleep

Getting enough sleep can really help your overall health and skin.


I hope my ten steps help you out. I would love to know what your skincare routine is like. I really enjoy trying different skincare products. I feel it’s important to try new products and give your skin a change. Some skincare might work for you and some might not.

If you do not see results after you finish a product then why continue using it? Also remember to ask if you don’t know enough about your skin. I feel it’s important to get to know your skin and give it what it needs so you can look and feel better.

Winter Skincare with G.M. Collin

christmas-banner

Happy Holidays! Winter is here and I wanted to share with you my winter Skincare routine with G.M. Collin products. I’m a huge fan of G.M Collin skincare. I’ve reviewed their beautiful products before. If you like have a look at my articles.   G.M. Collin Derm Renewal Booster REVIEW, G.M. COLLIN DIAMOND SERUM REVIEW and  G.M. COLLIN SKINCARE – REVIEW .  Today I’m sharing four new products with you that I’m very thrilled about! Not chilled but thrilled! Yes it is chilly out there and my skin has no worries or concerns because I’ve been using G.M. Collins hydrating body cream, body treating oil, Nutriderm Replenishing Complex and the daily ceramide comfort capsules. These four beauties have been keeping my skin hydrated, nourished, soothed and feeling beautiful!

16

 G.M. Collin Body Hydrating Cream

This is an Anti-Aging body cream that smells fresh and light. It offers the skin wonderful hydration and feels soft and lovely on the skin. It feels very nourishing and soothing. It absorbs really beautifully on the skin and feels light and not greasy. I absolutely love the body hydrating cream and it is ideal for winter.

18


Body Treating Oil

The Body oil smells and feels really beautiful, the scent and texture is light, fresh, soothing and relaxing to the senses. I absolutely love how this oil is absorbed on the skin and it has made my skin soft and smooth and feel wonderful. It is beautiful and luxurious!

 

Body Treating Oil is a sublimely light oil with a delicate texture. It visibly enhances skin elasticity and firmness through its high hydration effect, making it feel satiny soft, healthier and younger-looking. It provides a pleasant sensation of well-being. Body Treating Oil is also a perfect massage oil. It is best to use it after showering or exfoliating as a separate skin care, or in combination with the complete Body Care line.

21

Nutriderm Replenishing Complex

I really love the Nutriderm Replenishing Complex because it feels lovely on the skin. It absorbs really nicely and feels wonderful, light and soothing. I love the light scent. I really enjoy how hydrating it is and it leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth. It really protects my skin from getting dry from the cold but also from the heat inside the home. Sometimes it’s not only the cold weather but the dry heat that can have an effect on my skin and I find that this really helps sustain the hydration and evenness of my skin’s complexion.

A nourishing and regenerating elixir enriched with Argan and cactus Oil, Lupin oil and Lycopene. Protects the skin’s hydration barrier and improves the youthful appearance of the skin by leaving it visibly smoother, revitalized and more supple. Contains: Argan and Cactus Oil, Omega 3-6-9 Normal to Dry Skin

17

DAILY CERAMIDE COMFORT

I must be really honest and tell you these are my favourite!  These capsules are so incredible! I’m so impressed by these little golden beautiful capsules. They hold the most silkiest face oil! They are little capsules filled with the most luxurious soothing oil. I apply this all over my face, neck and hands. They smell so divine and feel so delightful on the skin. They really nourish and feel amazing. The scent is truly beautiful and the oil absorbs so nicely and evenly on the skin. If there’s one thing you must try it’s these beautiful Ceramide Comfort Daily Capsules.

A daily capsule to nourish and reduce visible signs of aging while minimizing moisture loss. This highly practical capsule with exquisite texture and scent will give the skin a silky smooth texture and a remarkable softness. For all skin types

1920

Overall I’m really loving and enjoying using all these beautiful products. They nourish and help my skin stay really hydrated. My skin looks and feels really great. I love using oils in the winter do you?  I love that the scent in in the G.M.Collin skincare line are light and not overwhelming. I love that the oils absorb nicely and leave my skin feeling really nourished.  All the products hydrate and nourish but the best part is that it also maintains hydration so you are not applying the products every hour. I use all these beautiful products once a day and I’m loving the results. I absolutely love all the G.M. Collin skincare line and highly recommend them.

*PR samples. That being said all opinions are all honest and true. Thank you to G.M. Collin for these amazing samples. Happy Holidays!

Beautiful Glowing Skin with Lipidol REVIEW

banner summer bestdayblogger

Lipidol’s mission is to bring oil into daily skincare so the skin’s natural oily layer is continually being supplemented. Lipidol’s product development process looked closely at the grooming activities that are best suited to oil-based products- washing, shaving and moisturizing. The result is six new oils designed specifically for those occasions and poised to play a meaningful role in daily skincare by helping to protect skin against moisture loss. -Lipidol

154Today I’m very excited to share four new oils from the makers of Bio-Oil. I adore Lipidol oils and I feel that they are truly hydrating and nourishing for the skin.  The collection is available in Canada, exclusively at Walmart and  Walmart.ca.

160

Today I’ll be reviewing four Lipidol Oils: (Lipidol Overnight Face Oil , Lipidol Cleansing face Oil,  Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil and finally the Lipidol After shower oil.)  Lipidol is the new skincare that is perfect to clean, hydrate and nourish my skin. I feel this is the right time after a long hot summer to put the hydration back into my skin, prepare my skin for fall and keep it hydrated all winter long! This is the great thing about Lipidol oils, they keep your skin hydrated anytime and any season!

Oil is an excellent medium for skincare. The outermost layer of the skin is a protective oily layer-the lipid layer. Its purpose is to hold moisture in the skin, an important function because moisture facilitates enzyme activity, which in turn support healthy, radiant skin. –Lipidol

The oils come in plastic containers and are very durable. I love the packaging and they are very easy to use. The packaging and size of each bottle is perfect. A little goes a long way with these oils and  I really love the simplicity of the of each bottle and the colours. Now let me talk about each one and share with you the amazing benefits of the formula.

155

LIPIDOL OVERNIGHT FACE OIL

$8.97 (50ml)

Lipidol Overnight Face Oil 50ml. Supplements the skin’s natural oily layer stripped away by daily exposure to the elements. Apply to face before going to sleep. Fragranced with Ylang-Ylang and Black Pepper essential oils. Suitable for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic. -Lipidol

The overnight face oil is really beautiful, smooth and silky. It is light and absorbs so nicely on the skin. It doesn’t clog the pores and I really love how soft and hydrated my skin feels in the morning. I really love the scent of Ylan-Ylang in the overnight face oil. It is so soothing and relaxing. The Lipidol overnight face oil really makes my skin glow and my face feels soft, silky and hydrated.

Don’t underestimate the importance of nighttime skincare ritual-overnight is when the body heals itself. during the day, the skin’s natural oily layer is stripped aways by exposure to the elements. Overnight , in the absence of the UV light, pollution and stress, the skin has an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate. -Lipidol

LIPIDOL CLEANSING FACE OIL

$8.97 (125ml)

Removes dirt and make-up without stripping the skin’s natural oily layer. Lightly fragranced with Rosemary and Niaouli essential oils. Non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. -Lipidol

I apply the gentle cleansing oil to my dry face and all the dirt and makeup binds with the oil. I add a little water and continue to massage as the oil emulsifies and forms a watery cream that rinses off very easily. What I love about this oil is that it works really well to take off all the dirt and makeup and I love how it really emulsifies and leaves the skin soft, smooth and clean. This oil is perfect for sensitive skin as the ingredients are non irritating and very gentle.

LIPIDOL CLEANSING BODY OIL

Washes away dirt without stripping the skin’s natural oily layer, leaving skin smooth and soft. Lightly fragranced with Lime essential oil. Non-Comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. -Lipidol

I really love how when I apply this oil to my  wet skin it emulsifies. It rinses easily away and I am left with soft, silky and hydrated skin. The scent is really lovely and very gentle. I usually get rashes from shaving my legs but I find using the Lipidol body oil before and after I shave my legs I don’t get a rash! Leaves my skin smooth, soft, silky and hydrated without irritations.

131148


LIPIDOL AFTER SHOWER OIL

$8.97 (175ml)

Supplements the skin’s natural oily layer, helping skin to retain moisture while keeping it soft and smooth. Lightly fragranced with Chamomile essential oil. Non-Comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. -Lipidol

I really adore this after shower oil. It doesn’t have a scent at all actually. It says it is lightly fragranced but I don’t smell anything which is okay with me. I love how soft and beautiful Lipidol after shower oil makes my skin. I really adore the soft and silky feeling of the oil gliding on the skin. The results are amazing and I highly recommend this oil. It absorbs nicely leaving my skin soft and smooth.

154

My overall thoughts for Lipidol is that the oils really help with hydrating my skin. I love how Lipidol helps alleviate dry patches, leaves my skin feeling soft, moisturized and absorbs perfectly without clogging the pores. The scent of each oil is nice and light, natural and very pleasant. The oils are super easy to use and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend Lipidol and I’m definitely buying these beautiful skincare oils again.
