Eye Love Wednesday - Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream

My tired looking holiday eyes are really appreciating:

Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream - 15ml - $39.99 - with a distinctive dual-swirl formula containing an eye cream to deposit light-reflecting pigments, hydrate, regenerate and reflect light from the eyes for smoother, more radiant skin tone swirled around a gel to deliver tone-evening ingredients deep into the skin’s surface to work on dark circles - reducing them in just 2 weeks.

The lightweight, fast absorbing formula not only gradually  reduces the look of dark circles, it also immediately brightens the area around your eyes to make you look more awake. For faster results use it morning and night - if you already have another cream you are committed to and are only going to use it once a day - I recommend the morning so you don't waste those nice illuminating effects on your pillow!

Available now at drug and mass retailers across Canada.

Mascara Monday - Artdeco Scandalous Lashes Mascara

Artdeco Scandalous Lashes Mascara - $29 - offers an unforgettable "wow" effect - full, expressive, perfectly defined eyelashes with seductive curl.
With an extreme black formula that adds volume, length and curl with a fixing texture that guarantees an even coating from root to tip. The special combination of waxes makes it pleasantly creamy, thickens the lash line and keeps it supple.
The brush features numerous curved bristles on a soft, flexible rubber brush, ensuring an application of the perfect amount of colour, simultaneously separating the lashes.

This week I'm obsessed with... Chanel Le Bi-Phase Visage Anti-Pollution Face Makeup Remover

Chanel Le Bi-Phase Visage Anti-Pollution Face Makeup Remover - 150ml - $53 - an exceptionally effective, no-rinse makeup remover with a unique texture that perfectly removes long-wear makeup and pollutants while protecting the skin barrier.

The formula combines two phases: an anti-pollution water phase and a protective emulsion phase. Just shake the bottle well before each use to blend the two phases into a milky solution with an exquisitely mild and delightful texture.

I've become one of those double cleansing people because of my Clarisonic - when I was just cleansing with only the Clarisonic the brush would get all gunked up with makeup - which was hard to wash off the brush and made me feel like my skin wasn't getting as clean as it should! Now that I've added the extra step of taking my makeup off first with this remover, my skin feels super clean, soft and toned - adding that extra glow. I would also highly recommend it if you use long-wear makeup, it breaks it up and removes it much more effectively then regular cleansers or if you have sensitive skin and like to use a cleanser that doesn't have to be washed off - you can remove it with a cotton pad if you prefer!
