Product Review: Kenneth Bernard Pro Dryer

Vancouver beauty, life and style blogger Solo Lisa tests the Kenneth Bernard Pro Dryer, available exclusively at Chatters Hair Salons.

Let me be the first to say that I might be the least likely beauty blogger on earth to be offering opinions on hair dryers. Before the Kenneth Bernard Pro Dryer ($74.95, available exclusively at Chatters Salons across Canada), I'd been making do with the same fold-up travel-size hair dryer for the last 5 years, ever since we moved to our condo and I swiped it from my parents' house. It was chintzy, it was weak. It emitted a burning hair smell from the countless times it sucked up my thick Asian tresses through the back vent and I'd had to unplug the dryer and extricate myself from the fan. Needless to say, it was not a pleasure to use. But I hung on to it because it still worked more or less, and besides, my hair had destroyed so many other hair dryers by getting tangled in them that I'd spent a pretty penny on replacements. Any hair dryer would have been an improvement over the status quo, but even barring that, the Kenneth Bernard Pro Dryer has been an all-around delight.

Minimalist Style: Lola Jeans

#OOTD featuring Lola Jeans legging style pull-on jeans, J. Crew sweater blazer in black and buffalo plaid shirt, Madewell V-neck grey tee, white leather Vans with perforated leather, Chanel 2.55 jumbo caviar leather in black with silver hardware

As you may have noticed here or on Instagram, I haven't been posting as much lately. Work projects and participating in the Bar Method Fitness Challenge have proven surprisingly tiring! The last thing I want to do these days is put on uncomfortable clothes, which is why I've been reaching for denim and leggings almost 24/7 and which is where the Lola Jeans 'Julia' jeans ($80) featured today come into play. Think of these pants as a hybrid of your comfiest leggings and stretchiest jeans. Lola Jeans actually kindly sent me a pair to review back in November, but with one thing and another, I didn't have a chance to feature them until now. If you're thinking of ordering a pair for yourself for all those casual #ootd moments, read on for my (admittedly very detailed and honest) thoughts!

Dior 5 Couleurs Glow Addict Eyeshadow Palettes in 887 Thrill and 667 Flirt

Although I'm writing this post on a grey and rainy Sunday, there are already signs that spring is on its way. Daffodils are blooming and the days are getting longer and warmer. And in the beauty world, the heavy metallics, mattes, and dramatic colours of the holiday season have given way to something lighter. Case in point? The gorgeous Dior 5 Couleurs Glow Addict Eyeshadow Palettes ($73). Described in the press materials as "2 exclusive harmonies of iridescent rosy hues," these limited edition spring 2018 palettes will add a certain freshness and bloom to your beauty look.

Introducing Nude By Nature, An Aussie Natural Makeup Line New To Canada

Flatlay featuring Australian natural makeup line Nude by Nature

More natural beauty options in the marketplace? Yes, please! Especially when they're as gorgeous as Nude By Nature. I had the pleasure of learning more about this Aussie natural makeup line at a media lunch, after which I walked away with a very full bag of products to test. In the last couple of weeks, I've been impressed with how easy and intuitive the products are, how well the mineral and naturally derived formulas perform, and the sheer prettiness of the rose gold packaging. It just goes to show that going green with your beauty routine doesn't mean sacrificing performance or luxury.

Nude By Nature is launching across Canada this month and will be available at Shoppers Drug Mart. Here are all the details on the brand, as well as the standout products and exclusive Canadian launches to look for the next time you're in store!
