Oil up from head to toe with Garnier, L'Oréal, Vichy and L'Occitane!

Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oils - $7.99 - a lightweight, non-greasy treatment which instantly penetrate the hair shaft for ultimate nourishment to provides maximum softness and supreme shine. In 3 custom-blended oil formulas to address three major hair concerns:

Colour Illuminate - for colour treated hair - with sweet orange and moringa oil to address colour treated hair problems. It illuminates every strand of hair and protects its colour for long-lasting vibrancy and intensity (and smells amazing)!

Deep Nourish - for dry, damaged hair - enriched with custom-blended Brazil nut and capuacu oil to repair the hair shaft for restored strength and healthy-looking ends.

Frizz Defy - for frizzy, fine hair - enhanced with amla and jojoba oil to tame rebellious frizzy, fine hair, gently smoothing frizz for improved manageability without any greasy residue.

They can be used a bunch of different ways: in the shower before shampooing to prime hair for gentle cleansing or added to your conditioner to help detangle hair; after showering to minimize damage and help hair dry faster; used overnight to restore natural softness, shine and elasticity; or on dry hair to smooth split ends and tame flyaways.

I've been loving the Frizz Defy - half a pump on towel dried hair for softness and another half a pump when it's dry to smooth the ends and get rid of any frizzies!

Available now at drug and mass market retailers across Canada.
Everyone, even oily skins should consider an oil cleanser - it's the gentlest kind you will ever use and I promise it won't make you oilier!

L'Oréal Sublime Radiance Sensational Cleansing Oil - 150ml - $11.99 - suitable for all skin types but tired and dull looking skin should especially take note - not only will it gently remove dirt and makeup, even waterproof in an instant, it will leave skin perfectly hydrated, sublime and glowing!

Available now at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
Post-menopausal skin will love:

Vichy Neovadiol Magistral Elixir - 30ml - $58 - contains a supreme concentrate of active oils that reconstruct the skin's entire lipid spectrum weakened by menopause with a complex rich in omegas: safflower seed oil - rich in omegas 6 & 9 and easily absorbed into the skin to nourish and soften it; rice bran oil - with high doses of omeagas 3, 6 & 9 with emollient and nourishing properties; and shea butter - rich in omegas 6 & 9, endowed with soothing anti-inflammatory properties and promotes the synthesis of epidermal lipids - combined they restore the softness, comfort and radiance that menopausal skin is missing.

Can be used alone or under your usual moisturizer as a serum, added to your moisturizer to create a balm or add 8 to 10 drops all over your face and leave on for 10 minutes before wiping off as a mask.

Available at drugstores across Canada.
And all skin (and hair) will love:

L'Occitane Fabulous Oil for Hair & Body - 100ml - $40 - offers a sheer layer of 5% shea oil along with sunflower, baobab and carrot seed oils for a light, delicately scented formula that can be used as both a body and hair treatment which gives a non-oily, satin finish to the skin and hair.
