Product Review: Schmidt's Natural Deodorant

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Lavender Tips Sensitive Skin Formula

A cooling hyaluronic body mist that layers well under sunscreen, water-resistant eyeliner, hair products that let you air-dry damp locks and do ponytails and buns...if you haven't noticed, there's a running theme through my latest product reviews and it is that they are all targeted towards surviving the dog days of summer! It's been so hot in Vancouver lately that I've taken to keeping certain skincare products in the fridge. I've also been relying on my latest natural deodorant fave, Schmidt's ($12.99 at Welk's General Store), to keep me smelling fresh from AM to PM. Natural deodorants have been on the blog before and have been a big part of my journey into green beauty, and while I play a little fast and loose with some products by switching between conventional and natural versions, I think I've become a natural deodorant convert for good. All the details on Schmidt's after the jump!


4 Summer Hair Favourites Under $20 Each

Summer hair favourites featuring La Coupe Coconut Milk Moisture Quenching Shampoo and Conditioner, Wet Brush and KB Collection small traceless hair ties in cotton candy colours

I've always been a low-maintenance wash-and-wear gal when it comes to my hair and summer brings out those Lazy Girl tendencies even more. Blow dryers? No thanks. Heat styling? Forget it. Of course, even with a minimal routine the right products make all the difference. I'm talking about moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that'll let hair air-dry soft and shiny sans frizz, a brush that detangles with ease (such a good idea for the pool!), and traceless ties that keep a tight grip on ponytails and buns without leaving weird dents and waves when you let your hair down. Here are the haircare products I've been enjoying so far this season!


Product Review: Diorshow On Stage Liner

Diorshow On Stage Liner

Chalk it up to my Lazy Girl approach to beauty or my almond-shaped Asian eyes, but I've always preferred a graphic swipe of liquid eyeliner to eyeshadow. And if the formula stays put and doesn't smudge, even better! Which brings me to the newly launched Diorshow On Stage Liner ($35), a liquid eyeliner that sounds like the answer to my prayers on paper. It boasts a waterproof formula that supposedly stays put for up to 24 hours, comes in a slew of fun colours, and features a precise felt tip capable of thin and thick lines. So how does it measure up IRL? Well...not great, to be honest.


My Favourite Podcasts

It's summertime and the living is easy! Lately I've been slacking on the blog and favouring a more leisurely pace of life—taking extra long weekends, tending to my herb garden, going to barre, seeing Bard on the Beach with Hubs, reading books, and listening to podcasts. I love podcasts because they make commutes and mindless tasks like cleaning go by that much faster, and if I can learn something new all the better. Some of my faves have been must-listens for years, while others are more recent discoveries. Here they are, in no particular order!
