Dior · Capture Youth 2019 Collection

Dior has recently added to the Capture Youth family with 3 innovative products, and while new, they are all able to integrate seamlessly into your current regimen. I don’t now about you, but Spring somehow feels like the perfect time of year for a skincare refresh, wouldn’t you agree?

Volition Beauty

With Spring close enough that you can almost taste it (can you tell I’m excited about the upcoming warmer weather?), my thoughts turn towards switching up my skincare routine. That said, earlier this year I was invited to learn about Volition Beauty and while I had never heard of this brand, the premise behind their concept intrigued me enough to actually leave hibernation (seriously). Few things can accomplish this feat — but innovation in beauty always works … at least, for me.

Vichy · Mineral 89

As passionate as I am about makeup, it’s safe to say that I’m practically a fanatic when it comes to skincare, and even though I get to test out many regimens and brands, I accidentally stumbled on one product that appears to compliment every single range: Minéral 89 from Vichy — a relatively simple pre-serum that’s composed of just 11 ingredients … but packs one helluva punch.

L’Occitane en Provence · Holiday 2018

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I’m not a fan of gift sets; I should clarify and state that the one exception to that is anything from L’Occitane, and this year’s Holiday 2018 offerings are once again scoring high points for being 100% amazing. To sweeten things further, L’Occitane has collaborated with fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac — known for vivid colour and unexpected pieces (such as a coat of teddy bears worn by Madonna, no less) — to create packaging designs that are eye-catching and fun, needing nothing more than a gift tag to finish things off. And just like that, you can knock a few more names off that list.

Fresh Beauty · Holiday 2018 Gift Sets

To be perfectly clear, I’m actually not a fan of gift sets; for one, I’m a control freak and prefer curating my own ‘sets’ and secondly, I’ve always found that apart from one or two items, the rest of the pieces in a gift set are usually just ‘fillers‘. That said, these Fresh Gift Sets are making me rethink my stance. Why, you might ask? Well, because each and every single one is filled with a really fab selection. Oh, and how stinking cute is this year’s Holiday 2018 packaging? There’s even a gift tag included!
