Bleu De Chanel Shaving Collection

•••
Facial hair has always been a way of expression for guys, from a full on beard to nicely trimmed shapes that require endless amounts of patience, quality products are essential in getting the best results. There are many steps involved when it comes to a good shave and a lot of products to aid the process, but other than a good razor you need a shaving cream[...]

Avène Tolérance Extrême Mask

•••
You always want what you can't have, especially when it comes to beauty products. Raise your hand if you've tried just about every mask, soothing oil or irritation busting moisturizer to soothe your dry, winter-chapped skin. Not to be the bearer of bad news but that dryness of wintertime turns into overheated skin during summer.. there's a never ending barra[...]

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm

•••
Not all moisturizers are created equal, but pinpointing the difference goes much deeper than imagining the bottle in your bathroom next to what you already own. It was wintertime and if anyone loves to balm up in a skin hugging cocoon, it's me! If the name didn't give it away, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm is a heavy duty product for desert dry com[...]

Korres Black Pine Night Cream

•••
Heading straight for three zero this year, I'm going to start bathing myself in antioxidants non stop to ward off wrinkles.   With 30 being my next stop -you'd never tell-, I'm looking towards antioxidants and proper nourishing products more than ever. I bank my money in night treatments so the Korres Black Pine Night Cream fits right in. I recon th[...]

Evening Shower Routine February

•••
In general there are two types of showers, the speedy ones where you only cover the essentials, and the full on relaxing shower that has water beating down to clear your mind and body until your fingers turn pruny. Depending on the amount of time and willing effort we're all familiar with both of them, but there's a third alternative that I like to call the [...]

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

•••
For an instant radiance boost and pigmentation busting serum, look no further than Caudalie.   Nobody has time for a dull complexion riddled with pigmentation issues. What if I told you that I know -and faithfully use for 7 years now- a natural serum so potent, it'll fix and undo a large portion of the damage.. if not completely? My end-all for a ra[...]

Avène Thermal Spring Water

•••
That one must have to soothe, refresh and cool your skin instantly?   Dermatologist and many beauty editors agree, this hydrating and rebalancing thermal water -straight from the springs in Avène, France- is not only refreshing but medicinal for the skin. Backed up by numerous clinical studies, this one bottle helps to soothe redness, irritation and[...]

Apivita Queen Bee Mild Exfoliating And Rejuvenating Cream

•••
If you're tired of chemical laced scrubs to remove the day, how about royal treat instead?   It makes sense using royal jelly as a nurturing substance for the skin, it's given to the queen bee in the first place so there are only benefits for us with the cocktail of vitamins, minerals and amino acids naturally present. Apivita Queen Bee Mild Exfolia[...]

Ducray Keracnyl PP Cream

•••
Killing them with kindness is not exactly the motto of many acne treatments but I found one that busts pimples without drying you out.   With over 70% of the world's population getting acne at some point, it's crucial to know what treatments work quickly and effective. Ducray Keracnyl PP Cream is a new one that combines a non drying formula with a b[...]

Darphin Hydraskin Light

•••
When in dire need for hydration, this is the gel for you.   Spring has almost sprung, I'm systematically shelving all the thick balms in favor of the lighter textures and hydration without the grease. Darphin Hydraskin Light caters to the normal to combination skinned people looking for a refreshing treat that keeps balance and feels lightweight. I [...]

La Roche Posay Hydraphase Soothing Rehydrating Mask

•••
I got a quick fix for prune face dehydration that calms and refreshes.   Overnight masks are a blessing whenever your skin feels zapped of all moisture, or I went crazy with a chemical peel. Angry prune face isn't for everyone so I love my Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and the quite similar Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. What if[...]

Morning Routine Ft Erborian & Kiehl's

•••
Forgive my hasty mornings, coffee hasn't kicked in yet.   Always transitioning into new arrivals and launches, my mornings focus on speed and efficiency. Coffee won't kick in until I arrive at work so you're only getting basic human functions out of me. Bought myself a refill of that Marvis Cinnamon Mint Toothpaste I adore, slightly stingy and warmi[...]
