    Give Your Skin a Scrub with LaLicious Island Guava Sugar Soufflé

    As you know, I’m an exfoliation maniac because I love soft skin and I have also developed an intense fear of premature wrinkles since beginning to work in this industry. So needless to say, skincare is my number one concern, all year round. My lovely makeup artist pals over at M.U.S.S.T., Giovanna De Caro and Geneviève Dubé (your go-to ladies for fabulous makeup for any occasion), were so kind as to share a new sample of their favourite LaLicious Body Scrub with me. I’ve been on this scrub for exactly one week…and I’m already unable to shower without it. I’m addicted.

    Duo Body Butter from The Body Shop

    I am not ashamed to admit it – I’m a body butter maniac! Is it a crime to want to soft, silky skin? I am constantly creaming myself up because I hate the feeling of dry skin and I want to keep my skin looking young and flexible as long as is humanly possible. 



    The Body Shop has just released a great new product that is going to make combination skin-sufferers very happy. The Body Butter Duo ($16) is divided into two sections: one for dry skin and one for normal skin. That way you can get extra hydration only where you need it. Too much moisture can make normal skin greasy so if you have combination skin like me, or have dryer areas like elbows and knees, you won’t have to buy several creams. Just this one!

    If you’re familiar with The Body Shop’s body butters you know they’re loaded with my fave naturally hydrating ingredient: shea butter. They’ll leave your skin soft to the touch. Choose from one of their four fab aromas (Vanilla, Acai Berry, Sweet Pea and Macadamia) and you’ll have nothing but super supple skin this summer.

    New V-Day Tradition: Love Yourself!

    Whether you have a special someone in your life or not, today is the perfect day of the year to indulge no one other than yourself. That’s right. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about loving someone else. Is there an “I love me” day on the calendar? Nope. Instead share the love with an at-home spa evening.

    Tonight, pamper yourself with some of the goodies I received from The Body Shop last week. Start with the Strawberry Body Polish ($16 — but on sale right now for only $10). A good scrub is a fabulous way to exfoliate your skin and make it feel fresh and brand new again. It’s a fundamental element to a fabulous spa treatment. Although the best part comes right after your relaxing bath.

    I am addicted to the Strawberry Puree Body Lotion ($12). It smells absolutely amazing. It’s so good, I’m tempted to lick it right off my arms! It’s a really soft and gentle lotion that deeply penetrates the skin for long-lasting hydration. I love lathering myself in it and it leaves my skin feeling relaxed, calm and smooth.

    If you’re a body butter fan (something The Body Shop is known for), I recommend going for the Strawberry Body Butter ($16). It really is buttery soft since it’s made with one of the ultimate natural hydrating ingredients: shea butter. It intensely nourishes the skin and the smell of strawberry is even more intense, but not overpowering. It leaves my skin with a sweet lingering smell of fresh strawberries. It’s great for a spa night.
    If you have plans for tonight, be sure to set aside one evening this week just for you. It’s important to take the time to relax and spoil yourself from time to time. Make a stop at The Body Shop on your way home tonight for some wallet-friendly products that are sure to make you feel like a pampered princess. Happy Love Day, everyone!

    Have a Spa day at Home with Sephora’s New Skin Care Collection

    Sephora has touched new ground yet again by launching their very own skin care line. The line is so complete that I can’t share my opinion on every single product in it in one post, but today I’ll give you a quick peak at some of my favourite staples.

    I have to start with the Super Supreme Body Butter ($30). In winter especially, I moisturize my skin from head-to-toe every single day and this rich, luxurious cream has made it such a soothing experience. The jar is huge! I’ve actually never seen body butter sold in such a large container. This means your $30 is sure to go a long way. Plus, the cream leaves my skin feeling silky smooth, soft and beautiful. I really feel like I’m spoiling myself with this one.

    Another can’t-live-without beauty product is the Nourishing Hand Cream ($8). This handbag essential is one no gal should do without. I think every handbag I own has a tube of hand cream in it because I’m obsessed with treating and preventing dry hands. (It’s so irritating to have dry skin!) I like this one because it’s made with nourishing ingredients that absorb quickly into the skin yet keep it hydrated for hours. No oily residue here.

    The next staple product for me is the Instant Eye Makeup Remover ($6 for small bottle, $10 for larger bottle). The first rule of skin care is to always wash your makeup off before going to bed. Makeup clogs up pores while you sleep and not only creates acne, but adds to the aging process by adding excess oil to your skin. Sometimes, when I have a smoky eye or shimmering shadow, washing it off can be a mess. I like to wipe away the excess with makeup remover and then wash up. Sephora products never disappoint so there’s no way you won’t be satisfied with this one.

    And finally, one of my ultimate favourites, the Double Duty Exfoliator & Mask ($22). This item is perfect for the multitasking lady who wants fab skin without devoting hours of her day to getting it. This 2-in-1 product exfoliates the skin deeply yet gently (you should be exfoliating every single day!) and acts as a mask, too. Exfoliation is important for preventing premature wrinkles and allowing your fresher, more radiant skin to shine through. The mask is great for tightening the skin and deeply hydrating it so winter’s cool temperatures won’t ravage it. So there, even the busiest of women has no excuse not to care for her skin.

    Sephora’s amazing new skin care collection, which is chock full of way more goodies than I can share with you today, is sure to be the answer to your skin care woes. Check out the new products in stores or online today!

    Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps From Kiehl’s

    I thought I’d start off the week by diving, yet again, into the holiday spirit. However, today’s featured items are different from most of the ones I’ve shared with you the last few weeks. The Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection from Kiehl’s is the gift that gives back.

    This holiday season, when you purchase the Creme de Corp Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter ($45) or the Creme de Corp Body Moisturizer (250ml, $37.50; 500ml with pump $62) you will be supporting the Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children. Giving one of the Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection items as holiday gift this year means you can help Kiehl’s and the Jeff Koons Institute raise $200,000 for this fabulous cause.

    As someone who adores the buttery soft feeling of a Kiehl’s nourishing body cream, I can tell you that there can’t possibly be many people who wouldn’t love to receive this as a gift this year. As always, Kiehl’s offers up high quality body care products that are sure to leave any skin type feeling luxuriously hydrated, smooth and supple thanks to naturally moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and jojoba butter.

    Plus, if you visit the Nutcracker Market (located at 1001 Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, The Palais des Congrès de Montréal) between noe and December 4, 10% of your purchases from the Kiehl’s booth will be donated to Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, which supports the Nutcracker Fund for Children, a charity that gives ill and disadvantaged children the chance to experience a perfomance of The Nutcracker. So you can feel doubly good about your purchases that day!

    Kudos to Kiehl’s for embarking on such inspiring projects this holiday season. Oh, and one last thing. There will also be workshops that day hosted by Kiehl’s representatives between 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m on Saturday, December 4. These workshops will help you find the ideal products for your skin type.

    Happy Monday, everyone!
