Fall Beauty Round Up

There is no denying, fall is definitely here. The change in the season means it’s time to change some of our beauty routines and products. Here are some of the new products that are on my radar this season that you can get at Shoppers Drug Mart. 1. I am a huge fan of multitasking products. The new Sally Hershberger Major Body 3-in-1 Volumizing Spray builds volume, refreshes hair and provides an all day hold. Check, check, check! Sign me up, please. 2. I am late to the party when it comes to primers. Boy, was I missing out! I can’t believe the difference it makes when you’re using a foundation! The new Quo Complexion Correcting Primer  is of course a primer. Plus, it brightens and reduces the appearance of redness and dark spots. This makes it a winner in my books. 3. It is no secret that eyebrows help to frame the face. The shaping of a well polished brow is a deal breaker for achieving a complete look. Fuller, thicker and more defined browns are the style. For those of us who may be follicly  challenged in this area the new Quo Brow Palette can help. It has two eyebrow powders; great for customizing the perfect shade and one eyebrow cream for a flawless brow finish. 4. I know some of you out there have been blessed with full, lush eyebrows and all you have to do is give them a bit of shape. But, you often get left out of the “polish and go” products like the palette. Not any more! The GOSH Defining Brow Gel is perfect for you. Just...

Mad for Metallics – Fall Nail Trends

Fall is here and it is time to catch up with the latest nail trends. All that glitters is not always gold. It can be white, silver, copper or even blue and they can all be on your fingers tips this season. If you are a girly girl or a rocker chick with edge there is a glitter, metallic or sparkle polish for you! An honourable mention to this outstanding hand cream. It is super rich and perfect for the upcoming winter season. What is the sense of having fab nails if you have dry, flaky hands? ~ Shoana p.s. I chose affordable polishes from Shoppers Drug Mart because a trend is a trend, right?    1, 2, 3, 4 & 8 – Quo by ORLY ($10.00) 5, 6 & 7 – GOSH Nail Lacquer ($7.00) Centre – Quo by ORLY Argan Oil Hand Creme...

Beauty Oil Jackpot!

Another snow storm hitting us today. It makes you wonder if spring is ever coming. To help get us though what is hopefully the last punch from Old Man Winter, I wanted to share a great tidbit of advice I recently received about BioOil. This winter has been brutal for dry, itchy hands and skin; never mind keeping your nails in good condition. When I mentioned this the other day to a friend, she suggested I use BioOil. Now, I’ve always understood BioOil is typically used to diminish scarring. Although this has been effective, my friend told me she also uses BioOil to help condition and soothe her hair, skin and hands. So, I decided to put my friend’s claims to the test. I have since used it on my hands, skin and hair. This is what I discovered: Hands – I quickly saw the cracks in my hands begin to heal and my cuticles soften. It completely absorbs and doesn’t leave that greasy, can’t-pick-up-a-glass kind of film. Hair – Before jumping into the shower, I put a little on the ends of my hair and wash my hair. My hair is  long, so it is super dry and has frizzy ends. BioOil made a huge difference. It conditioned my hair and tamed down those frizzy ends. Skin – My legs are particularly dry.  BioOil absorbs so well that I am able to put on my skinny jeans without that sticky feeling some moisturizers leave. The key is to apply it right after you get out of the shower, while your skin is still damp. So, what’s next? My...
