My Boyfriend’s Skincare Routine

So my boyfriend (Jonathan) has been asking me to write this blog post for ages. His skin is more on the dry side and mine is more on the oily side so I started passing on skincare that wasn’t quite right for my skin type onto him. In doing so, I have created a bit of a skincare addict. Here is everything he loves using at the moment – hopefully it’s helpful for some of the men out there!

Hylamide – Sensitive Fix Booster

If you follow me on Instagram you saw that I visited the recently opened Deciem store on Queen Street West for the first time last month. One of the products I picked up was the Hylamide Sensitive Fix Booster ($20) and as the lovely employee at the store told me, I should be able to see results around the two-week mark - so it’s time for a review.

Monthly Favourites – July 2016

The end of July means we’re starting to approach the end of summer in Canada. For me, it’s actually quite exciting because fall is definitely my favourite season but for now, lets recap the products I love during the height of the Canadian summer:

Skincare Empties - July 2016

It always feels great to totally use up a product but it feels even better to take stock of the products I used up and assess if I should buy them again or if that’s the end of their life in my drawers. Here is the rundown on the skincare products I’ve used up recently:

Frank Body – Sweet Cheeks Kit

If you live for the #beauty #skincare hastags on Instagram, then you have definitely seen Franks Body products – before/after photos of various skin concerns and coffee-based body scrub all over beautiful people. Feeling more and more tempted by all the Instagram love, I purchased the Frank Body Sweet Cheeks Kit ($49.95) on the website a few months ago, which contains the full range of face products (Creamy Face Cleanser, Creamy Face Scrub & Everyday Moisturiser).

KYPRIS – Clearing Serum & Moonlight Catalyst

I am definitely a fan of the medical/doctor skincare brands but it’s always great to find an effective collection of natural beauty products. Based on a selection of organic, wild crafted and sustainable ingredients, KYPRIS beauty products are 100% natural alternatives for all your skincare needs.

L’Oréal Beauty in Bloom Warehouse Sale Finds

Since I was a child, my mom has been taking me to the L’Oréal warehouse sale. Admittedly, I really didn’t enjoy it when I was young but now I definitely appreciate the beauty discounts. For those of you who aren’t aware, this is an bi-annual sale that has discounted makeup/skincare/hair products from all the brands that are part of the L’Oréal family. Here is the list of what I picked up at the sale on Sunday.

Skincare Empties

A pile has been forming at the bottom of my sink, in a big plastic container, full of empty skincare products. Since I decided to organize my gigantic beauty collection the other night, I’m finally getting around to doing my first empties post!

Giant VIB Rouge Sephora Haul

Last night I went to the Sephora VIB Rouge Holiday event at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The event was jam packed with drinks, treats, makeovers, facials, free samples and most importantly – 20% off all purchases!! Of course, I couldn’t help myself and I managed to do a bit of damage at the store. I haven’t tried most of these products before (two of which are for my mom) but I thought I would let you guys know what caught my eye at Sephora, in no particular order.
