Fragrant Friday - Jean Paul Gaultier La Belle and Le Beau

Enter into the garden of Jean Paul Gaultier; a place of temptation and attraction between La Belle and Le Beau, the new tempting fragrances for women and men:

La Belle - 50ml EDP - $110, 100ml EDP - $148 (exclusively at Hudson's Bay) - a fusion of addictive Oriental vanilla, fresh bergamot and stunning pear - an addictive, luminous trail for an attractive and ultra-feminine woman.

Le Beau - 125ml EDT - $120 - built around addictive tonka bean and coconut wood combined with the fresh facets of bergamot - a fresh, powerful trail for a seductive and ultra-sexy man.
I would actually wear either of them - I find them both warm, sweet and a bit fruity, my favourite kind of scent - Le Beau does have more of a masculine edge to it but it smells great on me so why not?!
The bottles, as always are lovely and provocative - sure to lead you into temptation - La Belle: a red woman's bust dipped in pink with necklace of gold roses and Le Beau: a green man's chest with a gold modesty leaf.

Available now at Hudson's Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu and London Drugs stores across Canada.

Lockdown skin issues solved with a mask from 7th Heaven, Oh K! and Masque Bar!

It's been a long time since you've been able to go get a facial:
7th Heaven Superfood Avocado Clay Mask - 10g - $3.99 - with a rich, hydrating clay formula loaded with exfoliating walnut, softening avocado and juicy aloe vera to reveal brighter, purified and nourished skin. Best of all, you won't have anyone tsk tsking over the size of your pores!

We are spending way too much time in front of the screen these days and since overexposure to blue light can prematurely age skin and is associated with oxidative stress, causing our skin to release free radicals which disrupt and slow down our skin’s natural elastin and collagen production we need to do something to offset it:
Oh K! Anti-Blue Light Sheet Mask - $3.99 - with ginger and antioxidants to hydrate and support blue light defence. I like to really thumb my nose at the blue light and wear it while on the computer!
Those damn (but necessary) masks are messing up your skin:
Masque Bar Clinic Shield & Soothe Hydrogel Facial Under PPE Mask - $5.99 - helps hydrate and soothe stressed out skin caused by prolonged use of medical.protective masks. You only keep it on for 20 minutes so not sure how practical that would be if the mask is part of your job that you wear all day but it sure feels great to put it on at the end of a day of wearing a mask!
Handwashing, handwashing and more handwashing:
Masque Bar Moisture & Nourishing Hand Mask - 1 pair - $5.99 - helps to moisturize and nourish dry, rough and overworked hands. You will not believe how soft 20 minutes of wearing them will make your hands!

This week I'm obsessed with... Dr Teal's Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis Sativa) Collection!

Out of all the products I have tried lately with hemp oil (and don't they seem to be putting it in everything these days?!) this is by far my fave...

Dr Teals Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis Sativa) Collection, for a soothing experience which includes:

Soaking Solution - 1.36kg - $8.98 - combines pure epsom salt with hemp seed oil (cannabis sativa) to help revitalize weary muscles, add silkiness to skin and help fall into a deep sleep; along with a blend of white thyme, cedarwood and bergamot essential oils to help create a soothing soaking experience that calms the mind and body providing relief from stress. 
Foaming Bath - 1000ml - $8.98 - with a unique bubbling formula that combines luxurious essential oils like white thyme, cedarwood and bergamot with pure epsom salt to soothe the senses, revitalize tense muscles, provide relief from stress while leaving you feeling refreshed and renewed; along with hemp seed oil (cannabis sativa) to moisture, nourish and soothe dry irritated skin. 

Not only does my skin look and feel great after using but best of all is the way it smells - if you are expecting hemp to have natural, hippie kind of smell - adjust your thinking - it's more like a really expensive spa (without the price tag)! The scent is also so relaxing, be prepared to do nothing useful for the rest of the day/night!

This week I'm obsessed with... Belif Aqua Bomb Brightening Vitamin C Cream

Get your spring glow back with:
Belif Aqua Bomb Brightening Vitamin C Cream - 50ml - $56 - with a light and moisturizing gel cream formula that brightens and hydrates thanks to a quadruple hyaluronic acid blend - to replenish moisture on the inner and outer layers of the skin while increasing moisture density; and a powerful burst of vitamin C & E - to brighten.

The light gel cream texture is perfect as the days get warmer and the desire to lighten up your skin cream intensifies. My only complaint is that it doesn't smell like citrus - my philosophy is that any beauty product that contains vitamin C should smell like citrus - it doesn't smell like hotdogs so I guess that is an improvement over many vitamin C products... but regardless of the smell, you will love how your skin feels (and what you don't feel - it's free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. ) when you add this to your skincare routine!
