Palmers Skin Therapy Oil
Palmers Skin Therapy Oil Face $9.99

Have you tried Face oil's before? If you haven't then you need to get on board. Recently I was sent the new Palmer's Skin Therapy oil for the face and I have to say I was completely floored after the first use. The Palmer's face oil is like a transformation for your face.It has blend of 10 different oils, Retinol, Vitamin C and Palmer's exclusive Cetesomate Complex.
I have been using face oils as a part of my skin care routine for the Night time/Winter routine for about 2 years now and I have never had a oil quite like this.

It left my skin feeling so restored after a few days of use. Its a dry oil so it blended into the skin without leaving that heavy oily residue some skin care oils leave. Which means you can wear this in the day whereas most, the useage is better for night.
Within the 10 oils included in the face oil they help the skin moisturize and smooth fine lines, and the Retinol and Vitamin C help with making the face brighter.

Palmers Skin Therapy Oil

For my current skin care routine, both day and night I incorporate the Face oil from Palmer's I don't need to use a moisturizer I use the oil alone. In the day time I use 2-3 drops and in the night time routine I use 3-4 drops depending on how much I want. The scent is beautiful you get the after scent of the Palmer's Cocoa butter which is also included in the face oil which helps soften and even the skin tone.

Palmers Skin Therapy Oil

Overall I love the face oil and all the benefits it has done for my skin. What's even better is that it has cut down the amount of products that I use on my face and I know what is in it. My face is much smoother and I don't have to spend the high end prices. Instead I can pick this up for a great point point at $9.99, No more breaking the pockets!. Now because I love this face oil so much. I have a little giveaway for you for the next week for your chance to win some goodies from Palmer's. All you have to do is follow the instructions. You must also be a Canadian.

Review| Jealous Body Scrub

Mar 2, 2015


Body scrubs happen to be the most intimate time in the shower for people. It allows us the time to explore our bodies and give our bodies the much needed TLC that we more often forget about. I love body scrubs, especially in the winter because I can scrub away any dead skin that I have to bring back that natural glow as well as it really helps in locking in moisture from the body creams that I use.

Jealous Body Scrub a Canadian based company out in Vancouver contacted me to try their Jealous Body Scrub, an all natural Scrub made with Premium Robusta Coffee, Organic cold pressed Coconut Oil. Raw Brown Sugar, Sea Salt, Vitamin E and Minerals.

Back to the benefits of the Jealous Body scrub. These particular benefits do more than your regular scrubs, it is tough enough to improve your skin's imperfections from the Premium Robusta Coffee by stimulating more blood flow which helps in reducing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, eczema, age spots, acne, varicose veins and psoriasis.
The Raw Brown Sugar and Sea Salt help exfoliate the skin to rejuvenate the skins smoothness. As well the cold pressed Coconut oil Vitamin E and Minerals help hydrate, moisturize, protect and repair the skin; especially during the bitter winter season.

Jealous Body Scrub

When I used the scrub I made sure I showered first, after I took two scoops 2 TBSPs into my hand and rubbed it on my skin in circular motions. I left it on for about 10 mins while I washed my face in preparation for my night time routine. Once I was done that, I applied the #jealousscrub to my face and it was heaven. I don't think I have ever exfoliated that good EVER! it was even better than using my Clarsonic Mia and an exfoliant of choice. After I washed my face and exfoliated my lips my face felt so plum and supple.

Jealous Body Scrub

Overall my final impression after using the #jealousscrub is MESSY!(in a good way) I love how my body felt after I used it. My skin literally had this jolt of energy and I felt revitalized; I especially love that they're made with natural products because I don't have to wonder what is in it. So ladies don't get Jealous get your Scrub and join the Mess!

Think Pink: Anti Bullying #pinkshirtday

Mar 1, 2015

On the lips:
Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in Fiore & Urban decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Envious

On February 25th it was Anti Bullying day, an issue that is very dear to my heart. Being bullied for the colour of my skin back in elementary was the hardest thing to go through. I experienced it from all angles, from fellow students right down to the various teachers that I came to rely on during the school day. Not only that, watching my oldest daughter being bullied in school for a number of years for being the new girl.
Bullying is something that has become a norm in society one that every person is guilty of at some point. It can be as small as disagreeing with someones personal thoughts and beliefs and giving them a hard time about it. Or it can be as big as cyber bullying, which I see on a regular basis even in the Beauty Blogging community believe it or not.
So on Wednesday the day was dedicated to raising awareness on bullying by wear the colour pink. Any shade of pink you have! Being the beauty junkie that I am I decided to wear a pink lip to show my support and to speak out against all types of bullying. mainly because bullying does so much damage beyond repair to people that it can lead to emotional and physical harm.
Now the story behind wearing Pink on February 25th started in Nova Scotia where a boy was made fun of for wearing a pink shirt to school. So two boys decided to protest against this cruel act and started a protest by wearing pink shirts to school. The two boys went to a discount store and bought all the pink shirts they could and gave them out to other guys at school to join in the protest. That is where history began.

What do you think of Pink Shirt Day? Have you ever been bullied? Let me know your story in the comments below! and don't foget to click the check to get notification of my replies.

Mark. Cosmetics Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes

Feb 28, 2015

Mark. Cosmetics Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes
Available online at
$18.00 CAD

Today's weather was not as cold as it has been over the last month. Hopefully now that March is only days away Mother Nature has decided to treat us extra nice and bring in the spring flowers. With that being said where I think of spring I think of colours like Corals, Golds and soft pastels. Mark. Cosmetics believes just like I do that Coral is one of those colours you cant help but crush on during the spring season.
The Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes is an all over face palette that is perfect for any skin tone. The shimmery shades of corals, golds and bronze mixed together give the skin a gorgeous all over glow where you will look like you just stepped off a plane coming from somewhere warm and Tropical. With the Touch & Glow Shimmer cubes you can also wear them individually to customize your own look.
I really love how gorgeous this palette is, its multi functional as well where you can use it on the eyes and cheeks to give a monochromatics look without too much effort. The consistency itself feels amazing the colour payoff is not chalky either.

What are some of the shades you like to wear during the spring? Let me know in the comments below.

Here is just a quick makeup look using the Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes as a blush. Its very subtle but it still brings alot of colour to my face.
