This week I'm obsessed with... Korres Santorini Grape Poreless Skin Cream!

I know firsthand that it's hard for oily and combination skin types to find a moisturizer that is light enough not to make oily skin feel worse while still adding necessary hydration - until now that is...
Korres Santorini Grape Poreless Skin Cream - 40ml - $46 - a lightweight gel moisturizer that blurs pores, controls shine, and hydrates skin all-day long with a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, willowherb extract and the antioxidant-rich, santorini grape. 
Oily skin sufferers rejoice! A balanced and poreless complexion that feels great all day long is what you have to look forward to as well as skin so smooth, makeup just glides right on! You're welcome! 
The only thing I will caution is use less then you think you need - I find a little goes a long way with this cream, it really spreads out!

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores across Canada and online at beauty.shoppersdrugmart.ca, sephora.ca and korres.ca.

This week I'm obsessed with... Veilment Hemp Seed Oil Shower Shake!

Veilment Hemp Seed Oil Shower Shake - 300ml - $33 - with a dual-phase formula infused with hemp seed oil and gentle cleansers to leave skin feeling sumptuously soft and smooth.  

Created with hemp seed oil, an ultra-nourishing, naturally-derived oil with omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, to help nourish, hydrate and soften skin for the look of youthful, healthy radiance. 

Just shake well to mix the two formulas together making for a creamy shower experience - and while sometimes hemp products do have a lot more of an "earthy" scent then I enjoy, this one is just light and fresh!

Part of the Hemp Seed Oil Ultra-Nourishing Collection that also includes: Dry Body Oil, Bathing Bar, Lip Balm - and my other favourite - Tinted Lip Balm - a hemp-infused lip balm enhanced with moisturizing jojoba and coconut oils and a touch of colour for lips that feel hydrated and look healthy!
Available online at avon.ca.
