Products worth stealing from the boy from Jack Black, got2b and Mereadesso!

Jack Black Bump Fix Razor Bump & Ingrown Hair Solution - 177ml - $29 - reduces razor bumps and ingrown hairs and helps prevent new ones from forming thanks to a revolutionary dual action, alpha-beta hydroxy acid complex that exfoliates the top layer of the skin while penetrating deep into the cell to free skin-trapped hairs and prevent new ingrown hairs from forming. It also contains soothing and calming ingredients like certified organic chamomile extract, certified organic green tea extract, aloe leaf and hyaluronic acid to leave skin feeling hydrated and refreshed while eliminating unsightly ingrown hairs.

You'll want to steal it because it works amazingly well on legs, armpits and anyplace else you shave or wax - and I don't have to tell you, ingrown hairs hurt!

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca and getjackblack.ca.
got2b Phenomenal Thickening Styling Cream - 120g - $7.99 - adds texture and body without leaving hair crunchy; and Molding Paste - 99g - $7.99 - with a light formula that adds a naturally full look.

You'll want to steal it if you like a styling product that is matte, love the crisp, clean scent and are looking to achieve a neat, classic look without a lot of fuss!

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
Mereadesso Face + Neck Cleanser - 120ml - $45 - a non-foaming, all-in-one face wash that works as a cleanser, mask, scrub, toner and even shaving cream and rinses away residue-free. With a globally sourced ingredient blend that includes botanical extracts and vitamins and comes with a specially designed cleansing cloth - to be used with cleanser every time - in a handy reusable plastic pouch.

You'll want to steal it because it's effective as a deep cleanser but gentle enough for use around the eye area so it makes a great a makeup remover that will even conquer waterproof mascara.

Available online at www.mereadesso.com.

Fragrant Friday - Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose

Juicy Couture offers a fresh take on the classic scent with:

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Rose - 100ml EDP - $110, 50ml EDP - $89, 5ml EDP Rollerball - $30 - a sparkling effervescent fragrance with fresh fruity top notes of Italian mandarin, and William pear along with soft dewy jasmine petals; heart notes of rose de mai, white peony and jasmine petals; and base notes of ambrox, orris absolu and warm benzoin.

I can really smell the rose on me but fortunately the fruity notes keep it from being too floral. Admittedly, I love the bottle so much I probably wouldn't care what it smells like at all - so much wonderful pink sparklyness I almost can't stand it!

Available now at Hudson's Bay, Jean Coutu, London Drugs, Nordstrom, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores across Canada.

This week I'm obsessed with... Sephora Perfect Condition Brush Conditioner!

I am super guilty of not cleaning my makeup brushes as often as I should - not only is it bad for my face, it's bad for the brushes so I help redeem them with:

Sephora Perfect Condition Brush Conditioner - 65ml - $10 - contains conditioning agents that deeply moisturize brush fibers to prevent breakage while adding softness and shine to extend the life of cosmetic brushes. Includes a special blend of natural extracts that work together to inhibit the growth of bacteria and prevent any transference of impurities from the brush to the face.

It's meant for natural hair brushes so don't waste it on your synthetic ones, gentle soap is still the best thing for them!

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca.
