I've seen a lot of comments in the last few weeks from people who are looking for a good natural sunscreen this summer. Well, look no further: The new Rocky Mountain Soap Co. SPF 31 Sunscreen ($22) exceeds my expectations of what a 100% natural sunscreen could be and performs just as well as its conventional counterparts. More info about this wonderful new product (and what a natural sunscreen is) after the jump!
Most days I'm too busy, broke, and/or lazy to care that much about keeping up with home design trends, and it takes a lot for me to commit to anything decor-wise. After four years of staring at the same blue Moroccan trellis rug in our living room though, I decided it was time for a change. Replacing the rug triggered a few other tweaks that changed the look and feel of our living space.
Whether you're looking to save money or you simply find the ritual relaxing, if you're into DIY pedicures you should definitely consider adding the Bliss Achilles' Heel Spa-Powered Heel Smoother ($49 at Sephora) to your routine. This newly launched beauty tool replicates salon-worthy results in the comfort and privacy of home. What's more, it's oddly satisfying to use and makes the most tedious part of the pedi process much easier. (Adios, pumice stones and elbow grease!)
Revlon's new lineup of rainbow-handled mascaras boasts 5 different formulas and brushes. There's something for everyone, or if you like to change up your lashes to go with different makeup looks, you can easily build an affordable "mascara wardrobe," experimenting and layering to your heart's content. For a girl with Asian lashes and a certain set of mascara foibles though, how would these mascaras—which seem like a true drugstore delight—measure up?
The countdown is on with our wedding (we're down to the 3-month mark!), which means it's time for me to start playing it safe with hair and skincare. This is a bummer for a beauty blogger who loves trying the latest and greatest, but excellent news for you, dear readers, especially if you're intrigued by the newest John Frieda haircare collections. Read on for why these collections are so revolutionary and how you can win the one that best suits your hair colour desires!
I've been putting off writing this review of Charlotte Tilbury makeup (available at Holt Renfrew) since forever because: 1) anything I say will be so superlative it'll sound like an infomercial; and 2) no matter how I tried, my photography skills couldn't seem to do justice to the burgundy-and-rose-gold packaging. Beautiful packaging aside, this line really is as good as everyone says it is. I've been playing around with some tried-and-true favourites ever since meeting Charlotte Tilbury herself at a press preview last winter—and now, I've got a few new launches on my beauty desk as well. This line was long overdue for a blog feature—more details after the jump!
