Recapture your youth with Mira-Skin Ultrasound!

Mira-Skin Ultrasound Starter Kit - $349 - contains the Mira-Skin Ultrasound device, 50ml Mira-Skin Ultrasound Gel and 15ml Mira-Skin Hyaluronic Serum.

Uses ultrasound to boost the power of your skin care - while skin creams can only penetrate the top layers of skin, ultrasound makes it possible to deliver essential nutrients deeper into your skin to smooth away unwanted imperfections and accelerate skin repair. The gentle micro-massage of ultrasound gently cleans and exfoliates your skin and promotes your skin's metabolism and lymphatic drainage as well as the production of collagen and elastin. In the first 30 minutes after treatment, skin is highly absorbent making it the perfect time to apply your favourite skin care products for maximum benefits!

It's super easy to use and requires very little in the way of a time commitment - just 5-10 minutes 2 or 3 times a week and you will see results from the first time you use it with a new radiance to the skin. The only strange thing is that when it's turned on you can't see it actually doing anything so even though there is a green light and a bit of warmth I didn't believe it was working - I got proof by putting a a couple of drops of water on the head and watching them vibrate!

Fragrant Friday - Hugo Boss The Scent

The newest fragrance from Hugo Boss reveals a different side to the Boss Man that pays tribute to his personal achievements with:

Hugo Boss The Scent - 50ml EDT - $78, 100ml EDT - $100 - the scent begins with a spicy top note of ginger; a sensual heart of Aphrodisiac maninka fruit from Africa - evocative of passion fruit and rum is mixed with tones of lavender; and a base of intensive leather accord that  symbolizes magnetic masculinity.
I like this fragrance because it smells like something a MAN would wear - this isn't some kinda girly unisex nonsense, it's a manly man scent - the kind of thing that men who chop wood, change their own oil and would rather die then wear skinny jeans would put on - I approve!

Available at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora, Nordstrom, Murale, London Drugs, Jean Coutu and Hugo Boss Boutiques.

Great Gifting - Delectable Mix and Mingle Coconut & Cream Gift Set

 I love holiday sets because not only do they make good gifts, they are great for stocking up for yourself - you can't beat the price so if it's a product you normally use, buy 3 sets and you are set for the year at a significant discount!

Delectable Mix and Mingle Coconut & Cream - $19.99 - includes full sized bottles of Extremely Rich Body Wash - 236ml, Triple Moisture Body Lotion - 236ml and Radiance Boosting Hair & Body Mist - 120ml. - that will all add a bit of moisture to your skin thanks to shea butter, coconut oil and aloe vera and won't add any of the bad stuff since it's free of all the crap you don't want like parabens, mineral oil, phthalates etc. And FYI, it's not an overpowering coconut scent - more cream then coconut - I'm not a fan of most coconut scents but I like this one!

Ruby Pink

You can't beat the price - it's only downfall, as I would probably point out with any long wear gloss regardless of the how expensive it is or not - yes this one lasts but you can't have a gloss that stays without stickiness - the stick is what keeps it there!

Eye Love Wednesday - the best in black liquid liners from Kat Von D, Physicians Formula and CoverGirl!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper - $23 - a liquid eyeliner with a superfine, flexible and fray-proof brush tip that glides across the lashline for an effortless, precise application along with a high-pigment, waterproof formula that stays put all day for a fade, melt, crack and run-resistant finish.

And if that's not enough, the formula is enriched with an exclusive Sexy-Boosting Blend made up of cocoa extract - to help enhance feelings of attraction, excitement and euphoria and horny goatweed - an aphrodisiac that restores sexual fire and has a seductive fragrance of vanilla an musk to make you feel more sensual!

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Extreme Black - $9.99 - offers the control of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid eyeliner for beautifully defined with an all-new paddle-shaped tip that gives you two looks in one - thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. The intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama.

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.

And for everyone (including me) that finds liquid liner challenging to apply, CoverGirl offers 4 easy steps to the perfect application:

Step 1:
Stand 6 inches away from a mirror and tilt your chin up, so that when you look down your nose into the mirror, you can see your entire eyelid. Dab concealer or dust translucent powder on your upper lids. Blend well with a sponge or lightly pat with a fingertip to cover veins and prevent creasing.

Step 2:
Before applying liner, determine your eye shape. If eyes are close-set or round, line only the outer corners. Otherwise, line the entire upper lid.

Step 3:
Gently pull your eyelid taut at an upward angle. Beginning at the inner corner, draw small, connected dashes along the top lashes. Be sure to stay close to the roots so there is no skin visible between the lashes and the liner. To make eyes look bigger, extend the liner slightly beyond the outer corners.

Step 4:
Use a cotton swab to fix mistakes. For larger messes, dip it in makeup remover.

This week I'm obsessed with... Dr Renaud Loose Powder SPF 50 Sunscreen!

Now that summer is gone, I go to work every morning in the dark and don't have to worry about applying sunscreen - but by the time lunchtime rolls around I need to apply some sort of sun protection - a cream isn't a great option since I'm already wearing makeup - which is why I love:

Dr Reanud Loose Powder SPF 50 Sunscreen - 6g - $56 - in Light and Dark shades -  the ideal on-the-go sunscreen for every skin type, even very sensitive, that offers instant UVA-UVB broad spectrum sun protection that is easy to apply and reapply throughout the day. With a lightweight, mineral formula that contains flavonols extracted from jasmine and powerful antioxidants, for an optimal efficacy to protect against the sun and the premature aging it will cause.


I can brush it on over my makeup and it gets rid of shine at the same time - and it's super-portable so I just keep it in my purse so I never forget it!
The only problem with these brush attached to product applicators is with cleaning the brush - you have to do it carefully so that water doesn't run down the brush and get into the powder so make sure to dry it with the brush pointed down so the water won't run inside.
