Baby Got Back

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Soon you will be wearing those sassy off the shoulder tops, and your bronzed skin will be bare for the world to see. Is your skin glowing or are there some little embarrassments that you won’t want to share? Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar For Face and Body will put a STOP to that nasty “bacne”.

This medicated bar targets those unsightly breakouts with a combination of acne-fighting salicylic acid and other exfoliating and blemish-controlling agents. It’s so convenient, just use in your daily shower and in no time at all, your skin will look and feel smooth, clean and clear.

Don’t cover up – enjoy your summer skin.

One of a Kind

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

This morning I attended the One of a Kind Show and found two fantastic bath care brands that I just had to share with you…

Danielle Russell is the owner and soapmaker for Botania Savons & Délices and prides herself on using quality ingredients like shea butter and olive oil in her products. Handcrafted in Quebec since 1999, these bath goodies are almost good enough to eat – take the Cupcake soap – I fell in love with a chocolate mint one. Delicious! I was also enamored by the bath balms and soap slabs.

The Caron family are the makers of spa quality bath and body products made from the finest olive oil. Originating from the Laurentian Mountains, Olive Authentique strives to create a lifestyle that brings us back to the basics of relaxation and nature.

I am a huge fan of Lavender and was informed by Pamela Caron, that lavender is their most popular fragrance and comes in a variety of products – bath salts, soap, and a body & bath oil. Hmm which one to buy…

Holiday Gifts For Mind, Body and Planet

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

When purchasing a gift at the Holidays, or really at anytime, you want to know it is good quality, and that the recipient will like it. Origins has a fantastic selection of products that anyone would be thrilled to receive. Each item is made with the highest quality plants, earth and sea substances and 100% natural essential oils.

Something that we don’t necessarily look for, but is a definite benefit, is that Origins is focused on helping make a healthier planet. Their cartons are made from 50% Forest Stewardship Council certified paperboard and 50% post-consumer recycled fiber, all of their printed materials is printed on recycled paper using soy-based inks and Origins is partnering with Community Energy Inc. to purchase wind generated power to offset electricity used in its North American stand-alone retail stores. Wow!

And if that wasn’t enough, part of the sales from the following gifts are donated to not-for-profit organizations. Doesn’t that make giving even better?

I am excited because my parents are here in the big T.O. visiting me. When I have guests staying with me, I like to make the bathroom all clean, shiny and pretty – so I am pulling out my secret stash of L’Occitane soaps. They look lovely, smell divine and also feel good on the skin.

Bonne Mere soaps are my favourites as I love the creamy texture of the lather. However, I am thinking that I might need to purchase a couple of the Magnolia Bath Soap, as I adore the sweet fluting – they are just so pretty! That should impress my mother.

The trouble with L’Occitane is, as with a drugstore, you can never leave with just one item. I will end up buying a hand cream, a home fragrance, and maybe a shower gel. I had better put on my mental blinders and focus only on the soap!
