This week I'm obsessed with... Vichy Dercos Fortifying Treatment 5!

I don't know about you, but I've found the last year or so stressful AF - not only have I not been able to get a haircut, but I have been finding large quantities of my hair in the shower drain - I mean I've got enough hair for a comb-over now but I'd really prefer not to have to go there! Whether it is stress, fatigue, seasonal changes or even internal fluctuations, Vichy has come to the rescue with something to shore up weakened hair...
Vichy Dercos Fortifying Treatment 5 - 21 x 6ml ampoules - $74.95 - with 5 targets for anti-hair loss: hair breakage reduced after 1 application; thicker, more resistant hair; helps promote stronger hair fiber; fortifies the scalp skin barrier through hydration; and sooothes scalp discomfort due to dryness.
With a formula that is an exclusive combination of Aminexil, the gold standard anti-hair loss molecule with proven clinical efficacy, using 5 active ingredients for comprehensive action - from root: helps anchor hair in the scalp - to tip: promotes strong, resistant fiber + scalp strengthening action: reduces micro-imbalances of the scalp and boosts the scalp's resistance to promote hair growth. For great results in just 3 weeks: scalp is strengthened, hair becomes more resistant and stronger - after 6 weeks: hair  loss is reduced.
It's easy to use and can be applied on dry or wet hair. For intensive treatment: 1 monodose per day for 6 weeks. As an upkeep hair care treatment: 3 monodoses per week.
And to compliment the treatment there is Vichy Dercos Energising Fortifying Shampoo and  Conditioner - 200ml - $19.95 - Enriched with vitamins Niacinamide + Panthenol the shampoo brings vitality and vigor to hair to help fight against hair loss due to breakage. Revitalized, hair is less fragile; while the conditioner enriched with Aminexil and a complex Niacinamide + Ceramide, has a fortifying formula that nourishes the hair and targets fragilized zones to reinforce the structure of the hair fiber and envelop it with a protective film.

This week I'm obsessed with... StriVectin Advanced Hydration Hyaluronic Omega Moisture Lip Mask!

StriVectin Advanced Hydration Hyaluronic Omega Moisture Lip Mask - 8.5g - $32 - with a deeply nourishing formula that wraps lips in a replenishing layer of omega-rich fatty acids to soothe dryness and prevent moisture loss. 
Even better than a balm, this deeply nourishing formula is clinically shown to strengthen the lip barrier for lasting moisture with: hyaluronic acid - helps plump lips by drawing in hydration and retaining moisture for a naturally plumped lip; omega-rich fatty acids - derived from raspberry seed oil, to help strengthen the lip barrier by hydrating and sealing in moisture on the lips; and Moroccan pomegranate flower extract - highly concentrated in powerful antioxidants to help improve lip contour for fuller looking lips.
It's easy to use - it comes with a spatula that you use to apply to clean lips before bed and leave on overnight - they also recommend applying twice during the day. I love the texture, which starts as a rich, velvety, blackberry-flavored balm in its jar, and upon contact, transforms into a transparent, silky veil that smooths dry, dehydrated lips. I'm actually pretty well versed in lip masks - I have been using the Laneige one since Christmas and I had already decided that I wasn't buying it again because it just wasn't doing enough of anything better then my usual balm to merit the price - now I'm also not buying it again because the StriVectin one is a million times better - I now actually wake up with smooth, hydrated lips that look healthy and plump - I'm sold!

Available at drug and department stores across Canada as well as their online counterparts and amazon.ca.
