Vichy Mineral Masks

Vichy Mineral Masks opener

 

There’s a childlike joy about getting one’s face dirty with a mud mask, no? But the real payoff comes when you feel your cleansed skin once said goop gets washed off.

Gives new meaning to war paint, wouldn’t you agree?

The Loop Duty Free Montréal March Madness Is Here

 

During my last photo trip at The Loop Duty Free, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Or a beauty addict in a makeup store, would probably be more accurate … but I digress. This premiere duty-free store located at Montréal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport, had transformed into a carnival of colour with tons photo ops to be had. For example, see above: I mean, it’s a bear in a hula skirt complete with a lei — how can anyone resist?

Korres · Wild Rose Brightening Power Couple

 

Face oils are so totally having their moment right now, and while there are several that I’ve personally tried and really enjoyed, the Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil from Korres is the one I refuse to ever be without. Pair it up with the Wild Rose Brightening Targeted Tone Corrector, and you’ve got the makings of some seriously beautiful & healthy skin.
