Feel rejuvenated in the morning with Herbal Essences

When I wake up in the morning I feel very sluggish. I am not one of those kind of people who can just wake up, and feel like I’m ready to take on the world… But then again, who is, right??!!

I was recently introduced to Herbal Essences “Naked” collection, which offers three collections for different hair types: “Naked Volume“,  “Naked Moisture” and “Naked Shine“.

I got to test out all three, however, I fell with in love with the “Naked Moisture” line, as I have very unruly, thick coarse hair, and it can use some TLC with this dry air from all the heating from my home and work.

Because I’m not a “morning” person, taking a shower in the morning makes a huge difference on how my whole day will end up. After testing out Herbal Essences “Naked Moisture” these past couple of weeks, I immediately felt refreshed and awake! Not only was my hair feeling and looking silky smooth, the herbal mint extracts (which smells amazing!!!) helped wake me up in the shower immediately. The shower is a rare experience where all of our senses are alive, and since our sense of smell is the most evocative of all, why not take advantage to put a little pep in our step for the remainder of the day! It makes it that much better to start my day with a fresh rejuvenating feeling!

The “Volumizing Soufflé“, which is a weightless, volumizing leave-in conditioner, helps take away that heaviness that most mousse carries. Using the “Volumizing Soufflé” that has no silicone or dyes helps my thick hair feel light and allows for my natural waves to shine through, without it looking flat.

Knowing that this line is free from heavy residues, parabens and dyes, it gives me a piece of mind that this is a safe product for my hair.

Tweezerman – Beauty Tool Experts

AA8A3989

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the name Tweezerman, right??!! You know… “The little black dress of beauty tools”??!! If not, then you are definitely missing out and you need to learn about them ASAP! Seriously!

When I was introduced to this coveted beauty brand, I quickly learned how essential it is to own good quality beauty tools! Knowing that this popular line is a huge fan of countless celebrities, beauty professionals, and consumers, I knew I could trust them enough to use them for myself, and, of course, get the most out of them!

Here are my reviews for some of their popular tools:

The “Glitterati Safari Slant” {find similar style here) is the ultimate tweezer to firmly help create the cleanest pulling power. The tweezer closes evenly, allowing it to remove unwanted hair with ease. The slant helps grab each hair, with the smoothest, true precision.

Tip: Before plucking your brows, take a hot shower, so that your pores open up, which makes it easier to remove the hair. Make sure you tweeze the direction of the hair growth to avoid any breakage.

The “Brush IQ‘s” are the must-have beauty tool in everyone’s makeup case. Each brush is made to create a beautiful even, which is perfect to use with all powder and bronzer applications that leaves a seamless coverage.

AA8A4005

The Tweezerman “Pointed Concealer brush” leaves a seamless natural look on dark circles, blemishes and pimples.

The Tweezerman “Blush Brush” is shaped in a dome, leaving a natural glowing finish on the cheeks. It leaves just the right amount of colour.

The Tweezerman “Powder Brush” is the perfect tool for dusting the right amount of powder on your face and neck. Shaped in a dome, it’s ideal for all powder applications.

The Tweezerman “Finishing Contour Brush” creates a subtle contour finish, leaving just the right amount of bronzer on your face in the right places. The slanted tip was designed to allow the application to create a light and natural looking finish.

The Tweezerman “Brow Brush” provides the brows looking natural, filling in the sparse areas, allowing it to create a definition.

The “BrowMousse” is perfect for keeping those brow hairs in place all day. The translucent gel dries on the brow hair without it flaking or looking clumpy.

The Tweezerman “Pro Lash Curler” leaves the lashes looking natural, rather than too crimped. This powerful tool gets all lashes evenly, allowing it to be pinch-proof, which is great for people who are paranoid about that happening, such as myself!

Kérastase PARIS Gift of Gold

AA8A3346AA8A3364AA8A3371 AA8A3350  AA8A3409

Having thick, course hair such as myself, can be a bit of high maintenance. However, when I was introduced to Kérastase PARIS a year ago, I was hooked. The luxurious line does wonders on my locks. It keeps my hair looking shiny, healthy, full bodied, and it feeling silky smooth. Although their line is a bit expensive,  a little goes a long way!

Lately, I’ve been using the “Nutritive” line, which works great for dry to very dry hair – I’ve been very satisfied with it thus far. I was asked to try out another line of Kérastase PARIS‘ called Elixir, which I was excited about. I like to switch up my shampoos and conditioners every once in a while, so the timing was perfect. I was very satisfied with the Elixir line. It tamed my hair while allowing it to move without weighing it down. 

With the holidays around the corner, why not gift your loved ones, and of course, yourself, with a luxurious Holiday Gift Set by Kérastase PARIS! They have gift sets available for all hair types. Also, when you purchase 1 haircare product and 1 styling texturized, receive a complimentary 250 ml Kérastase PARIS Bain.

*Gift packs are available in all Kérastase PARIS salons and online at Kerastase.ca.
