Don’t Kill The Messenger…

Winter is on its way!

It sucks, I know, but rather than curse this news, I suggest you heed my message, it’ll help your skin to not only survive but thrive during this chilling time.

Ok, my ominous winter talk is done. Now let’s get down to business.

MOISTURE… MOISTURE… MOISTURE…that is the only thing that is going to save you over the next little while from dry, itchy skin, flaky patches and aging before your time.

Today’s list is designed to help you look like you spent the winter hibernating or as many of my relatives do, migrating to Florida.

Here goes:

I am most definitely having a Kiehl’s moment as of late. In the last few months they have released two products that have me singing their praises. First was their Super Multi-Corrective Cream  ($68 cdn), by far my new favorite moisturizer with anti-aging benefits, major hydration and a scent that is calming to my nerves and skin. The results are complexion perfection. I use it both day and night and I couldn’t be happier, plus the container is purple…I love purple.

Their second new release is the Patchouli & Fresh Rose Skin Softening Body Lotion ($30 cdn) which provides 24 hour  hydration but more importantly smells absolutely divine. This lotion does come in other scents, but none have captivated me more than this one. Since I’ve started using it my perfume hasn’t seen the light of day, it seems to sit, sadly on my vanity waiting for me to give it a spritz. I would bathe in the stuff if I could. Kudos to Kiehl’s!


Again, a reminder of today’s title…Don’t Kill the Messenger!

Chapped lips happen to good people! They don’t have to happen to you anymore! I have in fact found the absolute best lip balm EVER, but it is pricey. By Terry Rose Balm is hands down the very best there is in lip care, but it will set you back $60 us. What it will also do is keep your lips moist and protected all day long. This stuff is literally The Balm! Your lips will thank you.

I think we’re off to a good start with today’s recommended products. They are all my very favorites and I know you will love each and every one of them. Whichever you chose to start with ENJOY…

There will be more to come soon…

Stay hydrated…



We’ve all been there, that gross moment when you reach into your handbag to fetch your lipstick and its covered in purse lint, because you failed to cap it properly. Or worse, scenario number 2, where you reach into your bag for a kleenex only to pull out a blood stained tissue…only it’s not blood, it’s your lipstick whose top came off and now it’s all covered in kleenex bits. Sadly, nobody wants to wear purse lint on their lips!

Stress no more…this problem is solved!

Lancome has come out with their Lip Lover Lip Perfector. This isn’t quite a lip stick or a gloss, it’s sort of both and it’s sort of amazing. Firstly, its texture is gloss like, but it has major pigment so it covers like a lipstick. It’s never sticky, it’s very long wearing and it is really moisturizing. I can’t remember the last time I was this excited by a lip product!

You don’t really need a lip liner to wear with it because it looks great neat or messy. Its applicator is a spongy wand and its thick texture really adheres to your lips so it’s never runny.

Still, its very best feature by far is its packaging.  It has a small button on the side of the tube that needs to be pressed in to open the product and clicked in to close it.

Stuff this in your pocket and you are good to go for the day!

They come in 18 different shades, so you’re bound to find one that suits you. I’m partial to Rose des Cygnes!

You can find them anywhere Lancome is sold (Sephora, Pharmacies, Department stores).

Buh Bye to purse lint pouts…Hello to luxurious lips!

You’re Welcome…
