This week I'm obsessed with... Ready Set Jet Beauty Cleanse and Prime Beauty Baton!

Ready Set Jet Cleanse and Prime Beauty Baton - $32 - gives you flawless looking skin while protecting it from damaging environmental elements. 
One side holds the Makeup Meltdown Cleanser - a waterless cleanser, formulated with a proprietary blend of marine fennel that transforms the health and radiance of the skin - that goes from a balm to a liquid oil to a micro foam, gently dissolving dirt and grime and even the most stubborn makeup on the go. 
While the other side contains good for your skin Blurring Primer - with a soft purple hue that creates the perfect light reflection giving your skin a soft-focus.glides on effortlessly, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores instantly for a flawless smooth texture look - can be worn alone or under  makeup.
You are going to love how portable it is, someday when I can travel again I'm really going to appreciate that!


What's also nice about the Baton is how versatile it is - any product can be swapped out or replaced without having to buy the whole thing again - which means if I use up the cleanser before the primer and want a new one I can just buy the cleanser refill or if I want to swap it out for something entirely different, I can do that too (I have my eye on the Paradise Pink Lip and Cheek Stain)! Refills are $18 each.
Available online at I appreciate that they ship worldwide but they need to look at the Canadian shipping prices - they are higher then they need to be!

Happy Holidays and here's to a better year ahead!


2020 has been a dumpster fire of a year so it might not seem as though there is as much to be grateful for but like my granny always said, "any day you are still living above ground is a good day" - she had never seen Parasite of course so I'm not sure if the whole above ground thing still tracks...
In any case there is a still a long list of things that I am grateful for this year and more then ever, that includes you guys! If there was ever a year where Beauty Crazed was my much needed outlet for frustration, boredom and a world gone crazy, this was it! And I really appreciate all of you for reading, commenting, e-mailing and all your support in general!

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday - as different as it may be this year - I, for one, am happy to put 2020 behind us - stay well, stay safe and stay positive - better things are coming our way in 2021!

This week I'm obsessed with... Alya Skin Australian Pink Clay Mask!

Alya Skin Australian Pink Clay Mask
- 120g - $49.95 - detoxifies all skin types by extracting dirt and pollutants and tightening pores to help keep skin clear and bright.
Just apply a thin layer to clean skin and relax for 10 minutes before removing with a warm, wet towel - you will not believe how soft and smooth your skin will feel afterwards! 
And unlike some clay masks, I don't find this one uncomfortable, it doesn't get all dry and hard, making it impossible to remove or flake all over the place!
For the ultimate in soft skin, use the Alya Skin Pomegranate Exfoliating Facial Scrub before the mask - it gets rid of any dead skin to help the mask absorb better and follow the mask with the Alya Skin Australian Native Berries Moisturizer - to lock in the moisture - made super easy and cost efficient thanks to the Ultimate Skincare Bundle that includes all 3 products for $95.95!
