Frizz and silicone free with Mark Anthony Bye.Bye. Frizz!

Looking for a silicone-free and ultra-lightweight way to keep the frizzies at bay? Introducing new Marc Anthony Bye. Bye. Frizz with a collection of products that tame frizz without weight or build-up!

Eliminating frizz is an inside ​and outside job - moisture and nutrients need to penetrate the inside of the hair shaft, and then you need to seal them in from the outside. This new collection works brilliantly together to do just that – controlling frizz, adding shine and giving all hair types the manageability needed to look and feel soft and of course frizz-free.

Unlike most frizz fighting products that use silicone to smooth out hair, this line uses abyssinian 0il - a natural oil that delivers the benefits of a silicone without the unbreathable coating that they produce. From the inside it helps with manageability, strengthens, protects and has anti-breakage properties. On the outside it seals the cuticle and leaves hair sleek and shiny. And as an added bonus, the products all smell great - especially the Shampoo and Conditioner!

Available in the collection:

Bye.Bye. Frizz Keratin Smoothing Shampoo - 250ml - $11.99 - with a formula built to help hair become more manageable, shinier and stronger. It’s formulated with ​hydrolyzed silk for moisture and polymers to keep the nutrients locked in; and hydrolyzed keratin combined with ​abyssinian oil - helps to strengthen, while smoothing the cuticle for hair that is left softer and shinier

Bye.Bye. Frizz Keratin Smoothing Conditioner - 250ml - $11.99 - the first after-wash step to achieving beautiful frizz-free hair. Formulated with ​abyssinian oil and hydrolyzed silk to give hair the slip it needs to detangle easily while also conditioning and adding shine; Lightweight ​grape seed oil - helps to keep hair moisturized; and strengthening dual ​keratin - smooths the cuticle to diminish the look and feel of frizz.

Both available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart and Jean Coutu stores across Canada.

Bye.Bye. Frizz Heat Protection Leave-In Conditioner - 250ml - $11.99 - with a lightweight leave-in formula that keeps hair soft and frizz-free from wash-to-wash, without weighing it down. Cuticle penetrating coconut oil​ provides hair with extra moisture, leaving it softer with a natural glide;  abyssinian oil​ provides the conditioning and shine hair needs to live a frizz-free life; and the dual ​keratin​ formula strengthens and smooths the cuticle.

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart stores across Canada.

Bye.Bye. Frizz Keratin Smoothing Blow Dry Cream- 140ml - $11.99 - helps achieve the good blow dry that is the foundation of long-lasting style with lightweight ingredients, that allow hair to move in a natural way and polymers​ that help keep your look all day and night. The dual ​keratin​ formula strengthens and protects hair from outside elements while keeping ​abyssinian oil​ locked inside.

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart stores across Canada.

Bye.Bye. Frizz Humidity Shield Hairspray - 249ml - $11.99 - a frizz-repelling hairspray with the ability to hold hair naturally thanks to the formula which provides an invisible net. Dual ​keratins​ helps to protect, ​abyssinian oil ​provides shine and ​hydrolyzed silk​ conditions locks. The ​polymers​ provide “no shell” hold that looks natural, while helping hair look its frizz-free best for longer.

Available at Walmart stores across Canada.

And my favourite product from the line:

Bye.Bye. Frizz 8-in-1 Perfecting Serum - 50ml - $11.99 - with 8 frizz-fighting benefits: reduce frizz,  heat protect, humidity shield, smooth, nourish, moisturize, repair and strengthen with a formula that blends together the ingredients needed inside to help hair stay soft and moisturized. It then seals all the goodness in with a mix ​hydrolyzed silk​, dual ​keratin​ and oils like ​abyssinian oil​ and ​sunflower seed oil,​ which give hair a natural barrier to keep humidity out and moisture in and is light enough to reapply when needed.

Available at Walmart stores across Canada.

New and improved Korres Black Pine - now with 3D Sculpting Firming & Lifting!

Korres has improved its groundbreaking Black Pine formulas which now contain Elastilift-3D, a powerful complex that activates LOXL - the key player in regulating the structure of elastin - the structure of elastin is responsible for the elasticity of the skin and acts like a “tent peg” capable of placing it under tension in three dimensions - and is proven to renew skin elasticity and improve skin texture.

Available in the new 3D Black Pine Collection:

Korres 3D Black Pine Super Eye Serum - 15ml - $84 - offers a 360° eye lift that will leave the entire eye area, including the lids - looking youthful, bright and fatigue-free. Packaged in a sleek dosage-control pen, it's designed to work instantly on all areas of the eye, including the upper eyelid, which can show serious signs of fatigue as the skin in this area begins to sag. The serum visibly lifts upper eyelids, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin while also diminishing dark circles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and eliminating puffiness.

The formula contains potent Black Pine extract; new Defeye Gravitytm Complex - an incredible new active that has demonstrated visible lifting action on sagging upper eyelids; Elastilift-3D complex - which helps renew skin elasticity, boost firmness and resilience, re-contours and improves facial architecture; a polysaccharide complex of tamarind seeds that instantly smooth fine lines and wrinkles while regulating moisture and improving the skin’s texture; an oat-derived complex of sugars that provide an immediate lifting effect; three types of hydrating hyaluronic acid in varying molecular weights; and panthenol - deeply moisturizes skin and nourishes eyelashes.

There is a specific way to use it - apply to the eyes morning and night with light sweeping motions. Start from the outer corner and move inward, then up and around the brow bone. Pause and apply gentle messaging pressure for two seconds to the orbital bone where the brow starts, under the arch of the brow, at the temples,and finally at the orbital bone under the pupil of the eye.

Korres 3D Black Pine Eye Cream - 15ml - $64 - boosted with the Elastilift-3D complex, Black Pine polyphenols and the skin-lifting spilanthes acmella extract, this new and improved firming eye cream visibly reduces the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also helps to promote skin elasticity, improve texture, and provide visible 3D sculpting around the eye area.

Korres 3D Black Pine Face Serum - 30ml - $88 - an intensive anti-aging serum that firms, lifts, and recontours for effective 3D facial sculpting. Powered by ultra-concentrated Elastilift-3D complex, and Black Pine polyphenols, the new formula helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as promotes skin elasticity and improves facial architecture.

Korres 3D Black Pine Sleeping Oil - 50ml - $79 - an ultra-concentrated silky overnight oil with recontouring, firming and nourishing action for 3D facial sculpting. Boosted with natural lipid replenishers and Black Pine polyphenols, it works to visually optimize volume, promote skin elasticity and firmness and improve facial architecture. Non-comedogenic and fast absorbing, it replenishes essential skin moisture and deeply nourishes the skin.

It does a nice job lengthening and accentuating but doesn't volumize at all no matter how many coats you apply - this is a great daytime mascara!

Fragrant Friday - Marc Jacobs Daisy Love

There's a new Daisy in Marc Jacobs' field - addictive and irresistible, Daisy Love fills the air with a contagious love of life!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Love - 50ml EDT - $96. 100ml EDT - $120 - a gourmand radiant fragrance that  reveals its first notes in a vibrant burst of sweet cloudberries. Delicate daisy tree petals mingle with sparkling cashmere musks and driftwood to create a lasting and memorable gourmand twist.

The bottle is an ode to the Marc Jacobs iconic daisy and blooms with an oversized daisy that reflects over the warm glow of the juice.

Love the bottle and much prefer this scent to the original, it's a lot less floral. My only complaint would be the staying power, I wish they would introduce a EDP that would last longer - I find the EDT is gone in a couple of hours!
