    Yves Rocher Botanical Body Care Expert Firming Balm

    Centella Expert Firming Balm by Yves Rocher is one of my new favourite body creams right now. It’s very nourishing but that doesn’t mean it’s greasy. It actually absorbs very quickly into the skin, leaving it silky soft and hydrated all day long.

    This cream is actually a firming balm as well so it’s main goal is to  help restructure the contour of your silhouette. That doesn’t mean it’s a miracle cream but it certainly does make my skin look and feel smoother, firmer and softer.

    The key ingredients in this body cream are Candelila wax, shea butter (my fave!) and sesame oil. All natural ingredients, all great for the skin. Personally, I think anything with shea butter in it is amazing because it’s one of the only ingredients out there that intensely hydrates the skin without leaving an icky greasy film behind. The 150ml jar of Centella Expert Firming Balm retails for $34 (but right now it’s on sale for only $19 online). Check out the DEALS page to find out more about Yves Rocher’s shopping bargains.

    Give yourself the perfect pedicure

    Although the fluctuations in temperature have us sort of confused and worried that summer may not ever come, pedicure season has begun and it’s time to get your toesies sandal-ready. Trust me, there’s nothing worse than a gorgeous pair of strappy sandals attached to a poorly manicured foot.

    And by pedicure, I’m not just talking about my pretty toe nail polish. You’ve got to get your feet looking and feeling smooth and silky. Principessa is one of my favourite go-to beauty brands. This Vancouver-based line is not only super cute, but the products are wallet-friendly.

    I am currently obsessed with the Deluxe Pedicure Set ($32). It contains a pink nail file, toe separators, a nail brush, foot file, spa socks and an utterly fantastic foot balm. The foot file is really great for getting rid of dead skin. Just soak your feet in warm water for about 10 minutes first to make the job easier. You’ll have silky smooth feet in no time.

    After smoothing my feet, I apply the foot balm which is made up of shea butter (love anything and everything with shea butter), vitamin E and natural fruit acids. It’s so smooth and it really softens my feet. You only need to use this cream once in a while but I find myself using it everyday. Thank God for those spa socks. While my feet absorb the balm, I keep them in the spa socks to make sure no cream rubs off on my slippers.

    I like to finish off a good pedi with pretty nail polish but if that’s not your thing, at least opt for the Deluxe Pedicure Set to keep your feet looking smooth, soft and summer-ready!
