Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - REVERSA Urban Protection Hydrating Care SPF 30

5.0

3 days ago

This is an exceptional sunscreen from Reversa (a Canadian brand). It has a slight tint and good sun protection. I like that the bit of tint acts like a light tinted moisturizer. Other sunscreens can leave a white cast, so this is a plus. It's hydrating enough to use on it's own, but I still prefer to put it on top of my regular moisturizer. This sunscreen helps protect skin again sun …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - 154 Cologne

5.0
Created with Sketch.

15 days ago

I really like this "cologne" from Jo Malone. It's unisex, but it leans towards the masculine side (I am a man myself). It has mandarin, grapefruit, lavender, basil, nutmeg and vetiver. It is fresh but has a woody under current. It reminds me a bit of pencil shavings (not a bad thing).

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Insolence Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

18 days ago

This is a unique offering from Guerlain. I prefer this over the EDT version. This came out after, and it is more intimate and smoother than it's sister. The notes are similar, but this has a irreverence to it. It is unapologetic. This is my favorite of current Guerlain offerings (I am not a fan of Le Petite Robe Noire and its flankers). Even though this is softer than the EDT, it is still a …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Insolence Eau de Toilette

4.0

18 days ago

This is a very unique scent! It is quite different from other Guerlain feminine scents. In my opinion, out of the contemporary scents Guerlain has to offer, it is the best. I do prefer the EDP in this, but the EDT is very nice too. This is a violet overload scent. As well there is raspeberry which has the scent of "hair spray" (not a bad thing. The heart also has violet, rose, and …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Vetiver Extreme [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

18 days ago

I am a huge fan of Guerlain's fragrances. They are well blended and classic. At least the older scents are (not a fan of the newer ones like L'Homme Ideal, Le Petite Robe Noire, etc). This is a very green vetiver. However, there is nothing "extreme" about this scent. It is lovely, but lasts about two hours on my skin. It is still a wonderful scent overall. I wish it was longer …Read more

Fragrances - diptyque - L'Eau de L'Eau

4.0

1 month ago

This is a fragrance that is an acquired taste. It is complex, one minute quite fresh, the next it can be really deep and spicy. For a "l'eau" or EDT, it is quite strong and long lasting. I advise one or two sprays AT MOST, as this is all you need. You don't want to overwhelm those around you. I like the base notes with patchouli and tonka. It rounds out the scent quite well. I …Read more

Masks - StriVectin - Multi-Action Blue Rescue Clay Renewal Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is a cool product from StiVectin. It's a clay mask that changes colour with micro-beads which activate the blue hue of the mask when you massage it in a circular motion on skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off. Once or twice a week. My skin look so glowing and felt so smooth. My skin looked dull before I used this. I really saw a difference after using this just once. It comes …Read more

Fragrances - Lancôme - Idole Eau de Parfum

1.0

3 months ago

The latest fragrance from Lancôme is a dud. Completely uninspired. There is nothing truly unique anymore in perfume, but this is just so unmemorable. I think it will do well with the younger crowd. The proclaimed "thinnest bottle on earth" shaped like a cellphone, because it makes you want to take a picture of it and post it on Instagram (words from Lancôme themselves). Is this what …Read more

Fragrances - LaLique - Perles de Lalique

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

This is a beautiful fragrance from Lalique. It reminds me of Dior Midnight Poison and YSL Elle (both discontinued sadly). I find this to be quite unisex (I'm a man and I wear it). That doesn't mean it's not feminine though. I enjoy rose fragrances, and this has Bulgarian rose. To me the patchouli in this is pronounced and adds a certain depth to the fragrance (I love patchouli!). I …Read more

Fragrance - LaLique - Lalique Equus pour Homme

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I blind bought this based on notes I read on another site. The notes made me think I would like this scent. The base notes are the best part in my opinion with woods, musk, leather, and benzoin. This is a masculine fragrance, but not too strong. It has a rugged quality to it. There is an EDP and EDT, both are similar but the EDT is a bit fresher (although I'm not sure this is available …Read more
