Pantene Expert Collection Dry Defy - help for chronically dry hair!

Pantene Expert Collection Dry Defy offers a solution to those with chronically dry hair with a line designed to work together to help replenish lost moisture and block the damage sites where moisture is most easily lost, helping to lock down cuticles, seal and protect hair strands to keep them from drying out, starting from the roots.
The collection is like the three part regimen you would use for your skin with a final moisturizing step and includes:

Dry Defy Intense Hydration Shampoo - 300ml - $9.99 - with a dual-polymer formula to provide balanced cleansing to remove residue while allowing moisturizing ingredients to deposit on and help protect the hair while wet and dry to leave hair looking smooth and feeling velvety soft.

Dry Defy Intense Hydration Conditioner - 300ml - $9.99 - contains a triple amino complex formulated with ingredients that are also naturally found in the hair's core structure and evenly disperses conditioning ingredients without weighing hair down so you don't lose the natural bounce and movement.

Dry Defy Velvet Crème Infusion - 100ml - $11.99 - a leave-on serum that melts and transforms from crème to water and is activated when it comes into contact with your hands to help distribute moisture to dry hair by creating an invisible microseal against aggressors that draw moisture from hair, helping to prevent future dehydration - for hair that is left with a velvety texture and shine.

Available now at drug, food and mass retailers across Canada.

Fragrant Friday - Givenchy Very Irresistible Mes Envies

Givenchy Very Irresistible Mes Envies - 75ml EDT - $98 - a limited edition of the original Very Irresistible that is meant to symbolize "my desires."- your desires really, mine aren't fit for a family blog really...
Its floral- romatic composition is centered on rose, the queen of flowers and a symbol of beauty and love. It includes accords of peony rose, California roses, passion rose, fantasia rose, emotion rose and star anise.

All that talk of roses tipped me off right away that this wouldn't be the fragrance for me but I gave it the good old college try anyhow - I was right - far too floral for my taste - but the packaging is girlishly wonderful so I will keep it on my dressing table for that alone!

Available now for a limited time exclusively at Hudson's Bay.

This week I'm obsessed with... Warner's No Side Effects Wire Free Bra!

Warner's No Side Effects Wire Free Bra - $38 - help you achieve a smooth and sleek silhouette with a  comfortable, wire-free, v-neck bra featuring soft molded cups and a wide side panel that helps to eliminate underarm bulge.

The wider side panel really does make all the difference in keeping everything  flat and settled where it's supposed to be - and it's quite a liberating feeling ditching the underwire - anyone over a 34B probably hasn't dared to try that since their teens! The molded cups hold everything in place just fine, the only thing I will say is that the lack of wire seems to eliminate a bit of the perkiness that you might otherwise be getting.

Comes in Black, Pale Pink and Toasted Almond - and sizes 34A, 34B, 34C, 36A, 36B, 36C, 38B, 38C, 40B, 40C.

Available now exclusively at Hudson's Bay.
