Sephora VIB Fall Sale Haul 2019

Sephora VIB Fall Sale Haul 2019

It’s that time of the year again, the annual Sephora VIB sale for the fall season has nearly come and gone. I initially wasn’t planning on picking up much but this sale always falls around my birthday so between treating myself and a few gift cards I ended up with three hauls this go around. I didn’t make a wish list this time around but I’m quite happy with the products I chose, even if my husband was stuck browsing at Sephora longer than he would have liked, haha! Continue reading

Vichy Mineral Masks

Vichy Mineral Masks

One of my favourite ways to pamper myself is to put on a face mask. There is just something so relaxing about putting on a face mask and reading a book, watching a movie or just surfing the web. When I saw that Influencer was sending me two Vichy Mineral Masks complimentary for review I was really excited as both masks looked like something I would be intrigued enough to buy. As well, I’ve typically enjoyed Vichy products in the past. So lets dive into them and see what I thought of Vichy’s Soothing Aloe Vera Mask and Charcoal Mask. Continue reading

Summer Staples: Effortless Beauty

Summer Staples: Effortless Beauty

In the summer I like to spend my free time on the go so I’ve been trying to keep my routine for what I have on my face as minimal as possible while still feeling confident. I mentioned in my previous favourites post that my skincare routine has left me happy with how my skin looks without foundation and concealer so this routine also skips that step! I have left my skincare routine out of this post but if you were curious I use the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream with the C Firma and B-Hydra Serums mixed in for daytime. Continue reading

Refresh and Reset Luxe Box 2019

Refresh and Reset Luxe Box

Back in 2017 I shared with you the contents of the Refresh and Reset Luxe Box that my husband surprised me with. My husband decided to surprise me with another one this year so I thought it would be fun to share it with you guys again. The Refresh and Reset Luxe Box is a special deal that American Express cardholders can purchase. The box comes out annually, I believe, and is $20 CAD. This year’s box had 3 full sized items in it and 4 deluxe size samples. Only 5000 boxes were available for purchase this year. They have sold out but if they interest you and you’re an AMEX cardholder, be sure to keep an eye out for it around the end if February next year! Continue reading

Drunk Elephant: Rise + Glow & Night Bright Duos

Drunk Elephant Routine

For the last couple of years I’ve been drawn to Drunk Elephant products. However, I always admired them from a distance… never taking the plunge. I have to admit, their high price tag always deterred me from giving them a try. However, while browsing Sephora’s website I noticed they had two sets of deluxe sized serums/oils. One meant for daytime (Rise + Glow) and one meant for nighttime (Night Bright). They were a reasonable price and I figured they would provide me with enough product to see what the hype was about. I’ve been using them for a little over a month now (and still have product left!) so I’m ready to share my thoughts on them. Spoiler alert: I’m hooked.

Drunk Elephant Routine

Drunk Elephant’s philosophy is to only use ingredients that directly benefit skin health or support the effectiveness of their formulations. They are very much centred around avoiding what they call the ‘suspicious 6’ which they find to be at the root of almost every skin issue which makes their products suitable for all skin types. In case you were wondering, the suspicious 6 are essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes and SLS. Continue reading
