Introducing Saeve Skincare

Saeve beauty products from Paris France including antioxidant serum and SPF 30 moisturizer, hand creams, micellar water, soothing emulsion, and purifying gel cleanser

Between the museums and the tourist attractions, the long walks and leisurely hours spent in Parisian parks and at sidewalk cafes, I made sure to check out French beauty and skincare whenever possible. Why? There are some brands and products you just can't find at home, of which Saeve is a prime example. I stumbled on Saeve while browsing in the mall downstairs from the Louvre and ended up chatting with the sales assistant for over an hour, learning more about the brand's philosophy and hero products. If you've never heard of it, well, most French people haven't either—Saeve only launched in France last year and isn't available widely. However, with naturals-heavy formulas, wallet-friendly price points, a fun and lighthearted brand aeshetic, and serums that are already scooping up awards from French beauty editors, you can expect the buzz around Saeve to keep building and hit North America soon.

Spring Style: Wide Leg Pants

Vancouver beauty, life and style blogger Solo Lisa wears wide leg light blue linen pants from the Gap with a Madewell striped tee, cognac leather handbag from Tila March, and platform white Vans sneakers.

It's hard to believe outfit posts used to be a mainstay on this blog. I don't post my outfits as much anymore because, quite simply, I don't have a lot of variety in my wardrobe. But the flip side of that is when I do purchase something it's usually a thoughtful addition that goes into heavy rotation and has a big impact on the rest of my wardrobe and updating my overall look. For this spring, the new additions comprise white platform sneakers, tees with a slightly retro vibe (like this one with its 70s-inspired stripes), a new crossbody bag from Paris and wide leg pants.

Empties: May 2019

Round-up of empty beauty, hair, body and skin care products for May 2019

This month's empties round-up features a lot of trial sizes, some makeup empties (a rarity for me!), and a new-to-me French natural skincare brand I'll be testing a lot more of in the coming weeks.

Drugstore Delight: Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

This Drugstore Delight post has been a long time coming. In fact, the next time you see Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum ($34 at London Drugs) featured on this blog it might very well be in an empties round-up because that's how well-used my sample bottle from last fall's #LDBeauty event has been! Vitamin C is not new in skincare, but it has been getting a lot of buzz lately as brands release new products featuring it as a hero ingredient. And rightfully so, because vitamin C can benefit everyone and every skin type.
