Lighten Dark Spots with Dermalogica PowerBright Trx Trio

I'm paying for the skin sins of my youth in hyperpigmentation and an abundance of dark spots from both acne and lack of sunscreen usage. Over the years I've learned how to best conceal them with makeup in order to fake a great complexion. However, when the makeup comes Read more

Subtle Green Customizable Skin Care

Subtle Green, a Montreal-based luxury skin care company, recently caught my attention. Much of what they stand for is something I have been saying for years - "The best moisturizers do not have to contain 'miracle ingredients' developed using 'breakthrough technologies' in a remote secret laboratory." There are tried Read more

Review: Naturopathica Sicilian Bergamot Products



People throw around words like “natural” and “organic” a lot – how sure are you that your products are truly what they claim to be?

Recently, I started using Naturopathica skin care products. A brand based on holistic health, Naturopathica is a certified natural and organic skin care line, created with only the best natural ingredients.  Just as importantly, the ingredients aren’t just natural – they provide results. At the end of the day, isn’t that what everyone wants? An all-natural lotion is worthless if it doesn’t moisturize.

I tested out two products: the Sicilian Bergamot Body Lotion and Shower Gel. Both the lotion and shower gel are rather lightweight – deceivingly so. The gel worked into a light, refreshing lather and the airy lotion that followed sealed in my skin’s moisture.  The combination certainly did the trick after a few days of usage. I could probably reduce my lotioning  (yes, I just made that a verb) to only once a day now, but the scent keeps me coming back for more.  Read more

Review: H2O+ Blue Fragrance Collection

Finally I’ve found a fragrance collection that I would wear together…at the same time.  H2O+ Blue Eau De Toilette and Body lotion are so light and refreshing that I am not afraid that using the products all together will give myself, or those around me, a headache.  With notes of watery peony, rosewood, nectarine and bergamot, Blue Eau De Toilette and Body Lotion  have a really clean, fresh scent and it is not at all overpowering.  Although it is clean and fresh, I still feel feminine and sensual while wearing it.  I equate it to wearing your best fitting, most flattering pair of blue jeans with some killer heels.  The body lotion has a lightweight feel, but it contains Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera so it is still hydrating and soothing on your skin.

It has been quite a while since I have tried a fragrance that I would considering wearing on an everyday basis, but I will definitely be wearing H2O+ Blue everyday, it has become a staple…just like my favorite pair of blue jeans. Have you worn it?
