    Clarisonic: The Only Facial I Will Ever Enjoy

    As startling as this may seem coming from a beauty blogger, I am not a fan of salon facials. Don’t get me wrong, I can name a few good ones for those who truly enjoy the facial experience, but I personally can’t stand some stranger’s bare hands rubbing all over my face. It’s just very unsettling to me and I  prefer to give myself some much-needed pampering at home. Find out why I am now officially obsessed with the Clarisonic Mia 2 and why you will be, too.

    Step Up Your Skin Care Routine with Yves Rocher

    If you’re a frequent reader of this website, you’ll know that Yves Rocher is one of my favourite brands because their products contain natural botanical ingredients to care for the skin in every way. There’s a reason why they’re the number one skin care brand in France. Plus, the anti-aging ingredients they throw in from time to time are always great.

    Yves Rocher is launching an all-new line of skin care treatments, 3 Detoxifying Teas, in February, which is actually only a few days away. I am huge skin care advocate and if anyone asks me for beauty advice, it almost always begins with a good skin care regimen. Makeup cannot perform miracles so care for your skin properly everyday.

    Above, you’ll see the Micellar Cleansing Water ($19), the first step in your skin care routine. Made for the face, eyes and lips, this product will remove all traces of makeup and impurities from the skin. With Green Tea, White Tea and Madagascar Tea extracts, it also revitalizes the skin and gives it a visibly younger look. I like the fresh sensation it leaves on my skin and I love how it removes my makeup (eyeshadow, bronzer and all) in a snap. This product is also available in a milk formula if you need extra hydration.

    Perfecting Toning Lotion ($18) has become my best-kept secret…until today, of course! Also made with tea extracts and chamomile water, this cleanser has a little something extra. It actually helps revive the skin and get rid of those nasty signs of fatigue. It’s also made with peppermint, which is an ingredient that stimulates the skin to help it recover from signs of fatigue quick. You’ll totally love!

    Once your face is clean, you have to exfoliate. I can’t stress it enough, no matter how annoying or repetitive I sound! That’s where the Exfoliating Foam Cleanser ($18) comes into play. In general, Yves Rocher products are known for being extremely gentle on the skin yet effective and this little gem is no exception. I beg you, exfoliate at least before bed (though morning and night is better). It’s the best way to achieve smooth, hydrated, younger and healthier-looking skin.

    And finally, for the gal who is often on-the-go, the Express Cleansing Wipes ($17) were made just for you. They’re easy to bring along anywhere you go (they’re coming to Jamaica with me next week!) and they provide the same amazing results as the bottled cleansers.

    These new skin care products will be hitting Yves Rocher stores next week. If you make a purchase online, remember to click on the Yves Rocher photo on the right-hand side of this page to get your free gift at checkout. Happy weekend everyone!

    The Holistic 24 Karat Gold Facial

    When this info made its way to my inbox, it immediately grabbed my attention. You didn’t misread that title. Today’s blog post is about a luxurious facial offered only at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal and yes, that’s 24K gold.

    Using cosmetic-grade gold leaves, Enaam Takla, co-owner of the Dr.Hauschka Spa in Montreal, has developed the Holistic 24 Karat Gold Facial. (This procedure brings new meaning to the word luxury.) It was developed to help diminish skin imperfections, rejuvenate the skin and minimize blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. So the treatment really does target a little bit of everything.

    Gold being good for the complexion may seem like news to you but it’s actually an age-old secret. Cleopatra was said to sleep with a gold mask every night and, as we all know, her glowing complexion and flawless face is one that has attracted attention from all over the world throughout the centuries.

    The two-hour treatment offered at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal ($270 per treatment) stimulates the lymphatic system which makes the skin receptive to the benefits of the gold leaves which are spread and pressed onto the skin’s surface. The gold deeply penetrates the skin to release negative ions and get rid of free radicals (the enemy!).  The skin looks and feels more radiant after this holistic treatment.

    What do you think? Would you be willing to try out this exotic facial treatment?

    WIN Lise Watier’s HydraSmart Fall Skin Care Collection

    One of the biggest drawbacks to winter (aside from the bitter cold, heaps of snow and potential for frostbite) is the damage it causes to your skin. The harsh cold air brushing against your face is not only super uncomfortable but it dries your skin out which makes it age quicker while making it look and feel irritated.

    Your number one defence? An intensely hydrating moisturizer that can withstand the bitter cold and all of it’s harmful effects on the skin. Lise Watier has just released a new skin care line called HydraSmart, which consists of one face wash and one daily moisturizer for dry skin or one face wash and one daily moisturizer for normal to combination skin.

    I have been using the moisturizer for dry skin myself and it feels absolutely amazing. It keeps my skin hydrated and smooth all day without feeling greasy and judging by the texture, I have no worries it will protect my face all winter, too. I also have the face wash and the great thing about it is that it preserves moisture in the skin even while you cleanse it so your face doesn’t have to start the day off feeling dry and flaky.

    And because I love spoiling my Beauty Booty readers, Lise Watier and I are giving you the chance to win your very own HydraSmart set! The winner will also get the chance to specify her skin type (dry or normal/combination) so she can walk away with a package of products tailored to her specifically.
