Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser

Thinning hair gets instant fullness while getting rid of dirt and oil with:

Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser - 119g - $25.99 - delivers up to 2x fuller hair within seconds with cutting edge hair density technology - Fusion Fibril - that contains two absorption particles to minimize scalp sebum and add dimension to individual hair strands: tapioca starch - an oil absorbent material with a spherical shape to easily absorb follicle-clogging sebum; and silica - to separate and add diameter to individual hair strands as it micro-bonds to each hair strand for a fuller look.

Even if you don't have thinning hair it's a quick and easy perk up for flattened hair that been squashed up under a winter hat - go from flat to volume instantly!

Available now at salons across Canada - check out www.nioxin.com to find one near you.

Fragrant Friday - Aura Mugler

Mugler introduces a brand new fragrance that blends botanical freshness and feline sensuality:

Aura Mugler - 30ml EDP - $85, 50ml EDP - $115, 90ml EDP - $150, 200ml Body Lotion - $65, 200ml Shower Milk - $55 - this isn't your usual pyramid fragrance but rather combines five substances, three hearts, two overdoses and one magnetic field into an oriental botanical carnal scent:

The Beating Heart - tiger liana
The Botanical Heart - rhubarb leaf and orange blossom
The Animal Heart - bourbon vanilla and wolfwood
Two Overdoses - tiger liana and rhubarb leaf

Next to Angel I think this is my new favourite Mugler scent, it has some sweetness to it which I obviously like but also a greenyness to it, that's hard to describe because I can't compare it to anything else I've smelled, it's very unique, in a good way! It also has great lasting power, I can still smell it hours after applying and faintly at the end of the day.

As with all Mugler fragrances, the bottle is a work of art with a faceted heart shaped bottle in a deep emerald colour - it will take up some room on your dressing table though, it doesn't stand upright, you have to lie it down flat - on the plus side it is endlessly refillable.

Available now at Hudson's Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique stores across Canada.

This week I'm obsessed with... Avon Anew Platinum Cream Cleanser!

Most of the year I'm a milky or foaming cleanser kind of girl, but once the weather turns cold, something a little creamier that will add some moisture is in order - like this great one:

Avon Anew Platinum Cream Cleanser - 125ml - $12 - with a luxurious cream texture that gently removes impurities while leaving skin feeling soft and moisturized - and unlike most cream cleansers, it lathers - I love a cleanser that bubbles!

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at avon.ca.

Needful Things - Joe Fresh CC Translucent Pressed Powder

Normally this time of year I avoid using pressed powder - thanks to the cold weather and my angry skin it just ends up looking dry and cakey on me... that is until I found this one:

Joe Fresh CC Translucent Pressed Powder - $12 - with a silky texture that uses soft-colour correcting pigments to even out skin tone - helping it blend nicely with the skin so it doesn't just sit on top making skin look dry.
