essie Treat Love & Color Strengthener Nail Polish Review

Whether I go out with a fresh manicure or bare nails, I have always been told my nails are nice and healthy. I take it as a compliment, my nails do look good, even when they're bare. But don't judge a book by its cover, my nails are weak and can chip easily.

I always look for nail polishes (especially base coats) as well as nail polish removers that are formulated to strengthen the nails. essie's Treat Love & Color provides a 1-step care and colour formula to strengthen normal to dry/brittle nails.

Dermalogica UltraCalming

Dermalogica Ultra Calming Barrier Defense Booster and Calm Water Gel Review

Cold weather can take a toll on the skin, especially on the face. That's why before and during the colder seasons I take extra precaution to make sure my skin is well-hydrated, protected and taken care of. But sometimes the cooler weather plus the heating can be a little too harsh, dries up the moisture on my skin and causes irritation.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin's highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stringing is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin's protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups with Dermalogica UltraCalming. Dermalogica's latest products contains their exclusive UltraCalming Complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Matte Lip

Pucker up with L'Oreal Colour Riche Matte Lipstick. Review and Swatches of 712 Matte Mandate, 800 Matte-Caron, 802 Matte-Sterpiece

Pucker up with L'Oreal Colour Riche Matte Lipsticks! L'Oreal's richest matte lip colour comes with a selection of gorgeous shades ranging from bold to nude. They provide a creamy texture and intense hydration, making it super comfortable to wear.

I always love a good matte lipstick. How does one define a good matte lipstick? When it doesn't dry out the lips, doesn't crease into the lips, creamy and moisturizing is a plus. I knew I could rely on L'Oreal with their matte lipsticks. Their Colour Riche Lip Colours are amongst my favourite in terms of formula and shade range so the matte version shouldn't be any different. 

Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask

Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask with Papaya Extract First Impression Review

Ever since I started diving into how to really take care of my hair, a regular shampoo and conditioner don't cut it for me. From oil treatments to heat protection, I make sure my hair gets the proper care to keep it healthy and happy. 

I love a good hair mask session. When the comes to it, I usually apply it once a week. I love leaving a hair mask on for about 10 minutes and seeing and feeling the results on my hair. Although I like having some "me time" in the shower, sometimes there is just no time to sit around and wait.
