Do your skin a favour with an SPF 60 from Bioderma, Vichy, Life Brand, L'Oréal and Neutrogena!

This long weekend is sure to be a good reminder of why sunscreen is so important - it's going to be a hot and sunny one and if you don't wear it, you'll be feeling it Tuesday! Just remember to apply it 30 minutes before you go outside so the sunscreen has time to fully  penetrate the skin; apply it everywhere, even under your clothes as the sun's UV rays can penetrate through fabric and be sure to reapply every 2 hours for maximum protection.

The fairer you are, the higher the SPF you should use. Being amongst the pale, I usually go with a SPF 60 and there are lots to choose from this year - here are a few of my faves:

Bioderma Photoderm SPF 60 Cream - 40ml - $20 - offers maximum photo-protection for skin intolerant to all types of sunshine especially for those of us that are very fair with freckles - with an invisible moisturizing, non-oily texture that is highly resistant to water and sweat with an ideal UVA/UVB ratio that provides the same level of absorption across the entire UV spectrum as well as the highest level of protection on the market to protect against extreme sun exposure and help prevent benign summer light eruption. Fragrance free and hypoallergenic.

Available at drugstores.
Vichy Capital Soleil Sheer Lotion SPF 60 Bare Skin Feel Face and Body - 150ml - $29.95 - with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection that is photostable and enriched with Vitamin E. What's most notable about it though is the dry-touch texture - if you avoid sunscreen because you don't like the way you can feel it on your skin then you will love this stuff, it feels like you aren't wearing anything at all - it's also very water resistant! Hypoallergenic, paraben and fragrance free.

Available at drugstores across Canada - check out www.vichy.ca for more info
Life Brand Sunthera3 Sport SPF 60 Sun Protection Lotion - 180ml - $9.99 -a blend of broad spectrum UVA and UVB filters to provide non-oily and water-resistant protection against sunburn. Hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested.

Available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart.
L'Oréal Ombrelle SPF 60 Complete Waterproof Lotion - 120ml - $17.99 - the newly enhanced formulas provide an ultra-light texture with a photostable UVA and UVB filter system but still the same effective sun protection as it did previously. Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and suitable for the body and face.

Available at mass-market retailers and drugstores.
Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunscreen SPF 60 - 88ml - $14.99 -broad-specturm SPF face protection and anti-aging benefits together in one convenient, multi-purpose product - with photostable UVA/UVB sunscreen filters for consistent protection against the sun's harmful rays, as well as skin conditioners to help protect against the damaging effects of other environmental aggressors that can make your skin look older. In a lightweight non-greasy, skin-conditioning lotion that hydrates and replenishes moisture to leave skin feeling soft and supple. Also waterproof, sweat-proof and non-comedogenic.

Available at drug, grocery and mass retailers.

Solutions for all of your skin woes from Bioderma, Donell Skin, Alyria and Psoriasin!

Confession time - I'm addicted to Polysporin - I put it on everything: cuts, scrapes, pimples, cold sores, random rashes of unknown origin... I've always been convinced that there isn't anything it can't cure!

Lately though I've been realizing that there are products out there that actually exist to specifically take care of some of my issues that work even better - here are a few that I've tried or are keeping in mind should I ever need them:

Bioderma Cicabio Cream - 40ml - $20 - a soothing, fragrance and colourant free repair cream that offers repair care for damaged irritated, non-oozing skin that accompanies every stage of epidermal reconstruction: restores the epidermis, relieves the discomfort, reduces the urge to scratch, protects the damaged skin and prevents bacterial proliferation - can be used anywhere on the face and body and is great for minor wounds, cuts, tattoos, lesions following surgery, laser treatments, insect bites and skin irritation.

I've been liking this better than my beloved Polysporin because of the texture - it's thick so it actually stays where you put it which I'm sure makes it much easier for it to work it's magic!

Available at drugstores.
Donell Super Skin K-Derm Cream - 5 oz - $60.50 - a potent cream that utilizes topical vitamin K to help diminish the look of bruises, purpura, spider veins, and small broken capillaries and is specially formulated to infuse deeply for maximum results. Enhances the body's healing processes so it's great to use before and after surgical procedures to minimize post-op bruising.

Available at eBeauty.ca
Alyria Anti-Redness Complex - 50g - $70 - especially great for rosacea, it soothes irritation with a blend of 2% Oleanoline IS and 1% Alpha Bisabolol - soothes and hydrates the skin, preventing irritation and provides an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation effect to soothe inflammation associated with redness-prone skin.
Targets redness with a Blend of 2% REGU-CEA and 3% BIOPHYTEX and strengthens blood vessels to reduce permeability, decreasing the appearance of red blotches as well as reduces the appearance of small dilated blood vessels, restoring a more uniform complexion.
Conceals redness with a green pigment that provides an immediate concealing effect to mask facial redness.

Available through doctor's offices - find one near you at:
Psoriasin Ointment - 113g - $16.99 -  gives multi-symptom relief in a deep moisturizing, leave-on topical treatment and works quickly to help eliminate itching, flaking, redness, scaling and discomforts often associated with psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. 

Available at select drugstores.

Eye Love Wednesday - new shades from fave Maybelline shadows!

I admit it, I'm a bit of a makeup snob - I'm at the point in my life that I can afford high end brands and that's usually where my love goes - with a few exceptions, Maybelline shadows being one of them - the fun, trendy colours, the pigmentation and the price are just a few things to love about them and nothing makes me squee quite like new shades!

Maybelline Luminous Lights Quads - $8.99 - in Rose Lights and Opal Lights - in two brilliant combinations to help you attain the on-trend anti-smokey eye look - infused with a high density of shimmering pearls for extra luminosity and a radiant finish.
Maybelline Eye Studio Duo Eyeshadows - $9.99 - in Persuasive Plum, Teal Takeover, Downtown Denim and Silver Spark - marbelized baked duos that provide eyes with dimensional colour, refined luminosity and a dynamic pearlescent effect for striking eye looks.
Maybelline Eye Studio Quad Eyeshadows - $11.99 - in Smokey Night, Gutsy Green and Coral Oasis - provide eyes with shockingly rich colour and smooth feel with a silk powder technology that uses a wet process formula that is gently pressed and allowed ample drying time, providing tree suppleness and comfort that is easy to blend yet featherlight with a formula that reflects light for a natural lustrous finish.

So what do you think - do you agree that some things can be just as good in a budget price-range or are you all about the high end brands?

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight - not only saves your hair, it saves you time!

It's that time of year again - the heat, the humidity all combine to make my head a frizzy mess most days. When I take the time to flat iron my hair it's fine but most mornings I just don't have the time or inclination - a product that will make it possible to only have to do it every 3 days? Yes please! Just keep in mind that this means that you can't wash your hair for the 3 days either - dry shampoo will become your best friend!

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray - 105 ml - $15.99 - you might think it's just for curly haired girls who want to straighten but it's also awesome for those of us with straight hair and a bad case of the frizzies!

John Frieda Canadian Creative Consultant Alain Larivee was kind enough to share his top how-to tips for how best to use the product and achieve the perfect blowout at home:

1. Set the foundation with a frizz fighting shampoo and conditioner then towel dry and spray Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight onto hair and comb through to distribute evenly.

2. Using a round brush, blow dry your hair angling the air flow downwards from room to end.

3. Flat iron one section o hair at a time, pressing both plates together until you reach the end. The styling spray works with the heat of your flat iron to lock in straightness.

4. Touch up with the flat iron on day two and three if needed. The heat will reactivate the straightening benefits in the product.

This week I'm obsessed with... Givenchy Mister Perfect!

If you are a slob like me there are certain things in life you can't imagine living without - up to now it was my Tide To Go Stick which really is the greatest invention ever! Great news, I have now found an equivalent product for my face:

Givenchy Mister Perfect - $33 - corrects the slightest makeup slip-up with the greatest of precision to make you look flawless. Comes with four interchangeable cores that fit into clear compartment on the end of the pen - it's recommended that you use each core for a specific function: one for retouching the eyes; one for the lips etc. The remover itself contains a soothing fig extract that moisturizes, comforts and refreshes while it's touching up and is even effective on waterproof makeup.

I am forever smearing my mascara by blinking too soon after applying so this tool has been a godsend - I no longer have to walk around looking like a slightly (fine, who are we kidding) - incredibly deranged bag-lady!

Of course Mister Perfect is just the newest clever member of the "Mister" line - also available is:

Mister Light - $37 - for reviving the complexion and brightening the eyes with a touch of light wherever needed.

Mister Eyebrow - $26 - a transparent fixing pencil for keeping the eyebrows in line with all day hold.

Mister Bright - $37 - a pearlescent touch brush that lights up the skin with an iridescent veil.

Mister Mat - $36 - offers an all day, perfect matte finish for your complexion.

Mister Lash Booster - $33 - a booster serum that combines a fortifying care formula with a massaging applicator for denser, more resilient and more numerous lashes.

Available exclusively at Sephora.

Marmalade the cat reviews Philips Satinelle Soft and declares all humans crazy!

Greetings minions - I am back once again to point out another folly you humans insist on partaking in - fur removal.

I can't even pretend to understand it, my human spends copious amounts of time petting my fur and telling me how beautiful it is and then an equal amount of time behind closed doors using sticky stuff to rip her fur off, smelly stuff to dissolve it and flashing lights to kill it. Not that it would ever look as nice as mine no matter how much she let it grow, but it still seems like a waste. Be that as it may, my human has been using something lately that doesn't make her yell "ouch", smell nasty or make weird beeping noises:
Philips Satinelle Soft Sensitive Total Body Epilator  - $69.99 - perfectly removes hair (as short as 0.5mm) with hypo-allergenic discs making it great for sensitive skin, lasts longer and leaves your skin irritation free and ready to go. With 2 speed settings that offer extra gentle or extra efficient epilation. As well, the Satinelle Soft is equipped with a double waved massage roller that minimizes the pulling sensation and an ice glove that soothes skin after epilation. Prep skin for epilation with the exfoliating glove and trim the bikini line with the comb attachment. The shaving head attachment perfectly follows the contours of the bikini line and underarms for a smooth, close shave on sensitive skin.
Noz evil machine, you willz not be having my fur!!!!

The rest of you furless wonder want-to-bes can pick it up at major retailers any time now - I will be sleeping with one eye open while it's around that's for sure!

Nifty notions - Perfect Pieces offers braids for the braidless!

Now I can have the best of both worlds thanks to Perfect Pieces Braided Headband - $12.95 - in 10 shades: Midnight Dreams, Hot Chocolate, Traditional Girl, Irish Eyes and Bet On Red (above) as well as Touch Of Gold, Au Natural, Sweet Chocolate Blonde, Butterscotch Ripple and Blonde Bombshell.

Beat the heat with a spritz of Dermaglow, Avene, LUSH and Etival!

Have you ever noticed that when it's really hot out and you're walking by kids playing with a hose they can somehow sense that you want them to spray you with the hose and of course then they never do - the little monsters will only spray you when it's 30 below or you're wearing silk which means any water spraying that's going to happen in your life needs to come from you and who knows where your hose has been so why not try one of these instead - store it in the fridge and you will really be thanking me on hot days!
