5 Drugstore Face Palettes To Try This Spring

5 face palettes to try this spring from Essence, Pixi, Revlon, and L'Oreal

A new face palette can transform your everyday beauty routine, saving you time and space in your kit as well as refreshing multiple products with just one purchase. What's more, if you go for a drugstore option, buying a palette doesn't have to monopolize all your spring beauty budget dollars. Curious about what the best option might be? I've been testing five palettes in the last couple of weeks and I'm sharing my thoughts on all of them after the jump!


Things I Bought That I Love: Spring 2017 Wardrobe Additions

I'll be the first to admit that my spring shopping list is a little all over the place and kind of boring. As an aspiring minimalist, I'm favouring a handful of quality items that are in it for the sartorial long haul. Half of these items are meant to replace essentials that have worn out or don't fit anymore, while the other half references this season's trends in a way that still works with my closet's classic yet casual, denim-heavy vibe.


Product Review: Pixi Skintreats

Pixi Glow Tonic, Pixi Skintreats Vitamin Wakeup Mist, and Pixi Skintreats Peel & Polish

Pixi Beauty has been on my radar for a while, but I haven't had firsthand experience with their products until recently when I was invited to learn more about the brand and walked away with a bag full of samples to test and review. While I haven't gone through everything yet—there was a lot in that goodie bag—I do have a few skincare standouts to share with you today, all of which are available at Shoppers Drug Mart right now.


Things I Bought That I Love: Dr. Bronner's Soap

Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Citrus Pure Castile Soap

Dr. Bronner's soap is probably old news for a lot of you. As someone who's transitioning into green beauty and increasingly curious about natural cleaning solutions though, it has proven to be a total game changer. The bottles would always catch my eye when I was browsing Welk's General Store with their colourful, script-covered labels, but it wasn't until I researched this cult fave at home that I was intrigued enough to buy a bottle of my own.


My Minimalist Makeup Routine

Minimalist makeup routine

I'm lucky to be able to test so many wonderful beauty products, but when it comes to the day-to-day I rely on nine eight products that fit in a portable makeup pouch to keep me looking polished, groomed, and natural. My rules? These products must be easy and quick to apply, no brushes required (just clean fingers blending on freshly cleansed and moisturized skin, because these days I'm terrible at washing makeup brushes regularly). Longtime readers will recognize a lot of these products, which are a mix of deluxe and drugstore finds; perhaps the more recent readers among you may discover a new favourite to add to your daily five-minute face!
