To tell you the truth, I thought that this was a totally different product than it is. I must have read the instructions on the bottle like 5 times trying to figure out what exactly this product does. Now I know. Continue reading HYLAMIDE // BOOSTER GLOW SERUM
Winter is in full force in Canada, and it is now more important that ever to make sure that your face is well-protected. The skin needs moisturize to be able to repair itself, so whether you have dry skin, acne, or wrinkles, everyone should be trying to shove in as much hydrating as possible into their routines. Continue reading CHANEL // HYDRA BEAUTY MICRO SÉRUM
To me, Vichy was kind of the skincare underdog of 2014. With their awesome new Aqualia Power Serum and gorgeous Aqualia Thermal Night Spa, they really created some standout products this year. So…why not share amazing skin with the people you love?
Protect your face at any price.
While enjoying my Margaret Dabbs pedicure, I was chatting with the lovely ladies from BeautyNext, the company that distributes Biologique Recherche in Canada. And what was the most important thing I learned from our conversation? That I MUST get my hands on the BR Finishing Serums, specifically the VIPO2, because it would change my life (and my skin). And they were right. Continue reading BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE // VIPO2 FINISHING SERUM
As I mentioned in my evening skincare routine post, I’ve been using Chanel’s new Le Lift eye cream for a few weeks now, and have been loving it. While the cream is lightweight, it packs a serious punch, with enough hydrating power to satisfy my super dry eye area. Continue reading CHANEL // LE LIFT EYE CREAM & SERUM
As much as the products in my evening skincare routine have changed, they have finally settled, and I have found what seems to work best for my skin (in case you didn’t already know, hormonal acne-prone and slightly dry). Continue reading MY EVENING SKINCARE ROUTINE
This serum, right here, is Sephora’s #1 bestselling serum.
And that’s for a reason. It is completely suitable for any skin type, and contains Vitamin C, one part of the holy trinity of effective anti-aging skincare (Retinol, Vitamin C, SPF). In other words, Vitamin C is an ingredient that actually works.
The serum is packed full of antixodiants that helps to brighten skin, fade discolouration and dark spots (caused by the sun or acne), minimize fine lines, protect skin from environmental stressors and prevent future damage. Vitamin C slows the rate of free radical damage–free radicals are what cause dryness, damage collagen and cause wrinkles. If you want to look young forever, Vitamin C is something you definitely should incorporate into your routine.
Not only does this wonder vitamin keep you looking young, it will also provide even more protection against the sun. C can reduce sunburns cause by UVB rays
I apply a tiny amount of this product in the mornings and evenings under my moisturizer –it is not tacky or oily at all–it feels like a lightweight gel. I can already see an improvement in my acne scars, you can definitely see the effectiveness of this serum pretty quickly–I noticed a difference in about a week.
If you’re in your 20’s and are looking to make a step towards anti-aging skincare, adding a Vitamin C serum is a great way to protect your skin and make a visible difference without worrying about things like peeling, dry skin or redness that other anti-aging products (retinol) can cause. There is no awkward adjustment stage whatsoever.
