Moisturizers - Juice Beauty - SPF 30 Oil-Free Moisturizer

I really love this product. I was worried the first time I used it and saw the initial white cast it left on my skin (I'm naturally very olive/medium-toned) - but thankfully had read the reviews here first so expected it to pass, and it did. A few minutes after applying, I find it sinks in and leaves a nice subtle glow to my skin. I actually find I really like the thicker consistency …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Herbivore Botanicals - Emerald Cannabis Sativa Hemp Seed Deep Moisture Glow Oil

5.0

I have been planning to try this product for a while, and since winter decided to come early this year (it's freezing in Toronto!) this seemed like the perfect time. I layer this oil over my moisturizer since oils help lock in moisture, but don't really add it on their own. It works beautifully - I was genuinely impressed at how much of a glow it gives. It also does seem to calm my …Read more

Cleansers - Youth To The People - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I love this cleanser. My skin is naturally on the drier side, so I've been sticking with milky, gentle cleansers, but I miss having a fresh clean feel after washing. I wanted something that would cleanse my skin thoroughly, and give me that nice freshly clean feeling, but without stripping away moisture, and also leave my skin smooth. It's a lot to ask, I know, but this cleanser does …Read more

Masks - Unlisted Brand - Herbivore Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask

5.0

I really like this mask. I didn't experience any tingling, but that might be because I use acid serums, so maybe I have a higher threshold for having that reaction? The consistency is thinner than what I would normally expect from a mask - it comes with a little applicator to smooth it over the skin - and you only need a thin layer of it. It dries clear on the skin, so you have a film on …Read more

Styling Products - Amika - Blockade Heat Defense Serum

I bought this because I was looking for a strong heat defense serum. I've been using John Frieda thermal protection serum for a few years now, and although I like it, I'm always on the lookout for other good ones. I bought this product at Sephora, and it wasn't cheap: $34 (before tax) for 50ml. It has a very thick texture, and the pump on the bottle takes a while to get product …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Smart Custom repair serum

This serum surprised me - I had initially used it on my face, but didn't see any kind of measurable results. I didn't want it to go to waste, so I started using it on my throat instead. I've been using this consistently for the last couple of weeks, exclusively on my neck/upper chest and I've seen noticeable results. My skin is smoother, and any lines that were starting …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Dec/26/2018

I had relatively high expectations for this product - and it did not disappoint. I use this in the morning, before I put on my other serums and moisturizers (currently I'm using a La Roche-Posay hyaluronic acid and then moisturizer to try to fight the winter dryness). I agree with the other reviewers who have said this product can be challenging to layer - I find that using a very thin …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Marc Anthony - Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter body butter

Yes this product has a relatively strong scent...but like another reviewer said, that's to be expected! I don't mind it, particularly since it's effective. I basically turn into a reptile in Fall/Winter, so I need a strong moisturizer for my skin. I don't know if this one will be strong enough for deep Winter (we'll see), but so far this Fall, it's great. …Read more

Scrubs - Fresh - Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2018

Love this product! It's effective, but still manages to be gentle, and the scent is lovely without being overpowering. Although I use acids to exfoliate, I also like to use a manual scrub a couple times a week. I've tried several others from other brands, but they weren't as perfect as this one. It's not harsh at all, which is great since as it gets colder (I live in …Read more

Masks - Youth To The People - Superfood Skin Reset Mask

Nov/10/2018

I wanted to like this! I like this brand, and other products in the line-up, but this mask did nothing for me. It's very thick, and goes on smoothly. As it dries it does start to have an invigorating feeling (nothing harsh), and washed off easily....but....no visible impact on my skin. My skin felt soft, but nothing dramatic. It's apparently supposed to help with uneven texture …Read more
