L’Occitane en Provence 路 Immortelle Divine Collection


I have to confess that my obsession with skincare is basically in a tie with my love of makeup, and L’Occitane is a brand that definitely sits at the top of my favourites list. That said, every product I’ve tried from the ImmortelleDivine range has never disappointed, so I was thrilled to hear that the lineup was not only being reformulated for Fall 2017, but that the聽Youth Oil has been improved with an even higher concentration of the star ingredient, Immortelle. Sweetening the pot even further, are the two new cleansers which been added to the collection — both of which I’ve been using daily and I’m going to call it now: it’s love 馃挍



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. Unlike back in the day where the only options available were those rather unimpressive-looking noxious & heavy-feeling clay versions, now there are thankfully many more attractive and truly effective options — all tailored to聽one’s specific needs and skin type, such as these new Mineral Masks from Vichy. Gives new meaning to war paint, wouldn’t you agree?



Pixi Beauty 路 Skintreats & an interview with Amanda Bell


Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending an intimate breakfast to welcome UK brand Pixi Beauty back to Canada, where I not only got the scoop on several upcoming products but also had the opportunity to pick the brains of Amanda Bell, Beauty Global Colour Ambassador for Pixi. For those of you already familiar with the range, then I don’t need to tell you about some of their cult-fave icons (hello, Glow Tonic?) and if you’re not familiar, well read on to learn more about this brand from Amanda Bell herself (she’s so cool … and FUNNY!)



The Loop Duty Free 路 Hockey Fever in the city … and more!


Hockey borders on聽religion in Canada, and聽that’s clearly evident here in Montr茅al now that playoff season is upon us and our beloved Habs (aka: the Montr茅al Canadiens, hockey’s oldest team #habsfanforlife) are in. Even the airport has gotten into the spirit by switching up the usual sign to display the Bleu-Blanc-RougeGO HABS GO!



The Loop Duty Free Montr茅al 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聽located at Montr茅al’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport, had transformed into a carnival of colour with tons聽photo ops to be had. For example, see聽above: I mean, it’s a bear in a hula skirt complete with a lei — how can anyone resist?
