Take it all off: CeraVe releases new Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser

When it comes to drugstore cleansers, CeraVe takes the cake.

Out of any drugstore skincare brand, I feel like I hear the most excitement about CeraVe.  Whether it’s their moisturizers, their serums, or their cleansers, people just love their products.

Now if you love the line up of CeraVe cleansers already, then you’ll be excited to hear that they just released a new formula to the collection, the Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser (C$19.99).

Three CeraVe cleansers

Joining their lineup of existing cleansers, this new one is aimed at normal to dry skin and is perfect for removing makeup and cleansing your skin. This cleanser starts off as a cream formula and then works it way into a foaming cleanser to gently and effectively remove makeup, dirt, and oil, all while cleaning your skin. The formula is effective and gentle and contains the brands three essential ceramides to restore the protective skin barrier, as well as MVE delivery technology, which is control released for all-day hydration.  The cleanser also has amino acids and hyaluronic acid to hold water on the skin.

I personally love a foaming cleanser but if you are more of a static cleanser girl, then you can go with their Hydrating Cleanser for normal to dry skin (C$19.99).  This cleanser is very similar to the new one but just doesn’t foam up. Both of these leave skin feeling clean and refreshed and ready for the rest of your routine.

CeraVe Cleansers

Now, for those who have oily skin, the best route for you is the CeraVe Foaming Cleanser for normal to oily skin (C$19.99 but often on sale)  This cleanser is a gel formula which lathers into a form to deep clean and remove any excess oil without drying out or stripping the skin. It contains the brand’s three essential ceramides, Vitamin B3 (also known as niacinamide), and hyaluronic acid to moisturize.

No matter which kind of skin you have, there is a CeraVe cleanser for you, and trust me, this product is definitely worth the hype. I know so many people who swear by this cleanser, and since it’s a drugstore product, you can pick it up pretty much everywhere and it’s super affordable. The only trouble you’ll have with it is finding it since it often sells out!

Dreamy hair: Three hair products from L’Oreal Paris you need to try

When I say the words “L’Oreal Paris” what do you think of?  I’m going to go in a limb here, but I bet it’s makeup.  The company actually started off in hair colour and patented a hair colour formula that was safe to use, as well as offered a wider range of colours.

We all know that L’Oreal Paris is a giant in the beauty industry and although they have come a long way since the hair colour days (which they still offer), they also have a wide range of haircare products.

I’ve used L’Oreal hair products a lot over the past few years (I’m currently using their Ever Pure blonde shampoo) and have already really loved the way their items make my hair look and feel.  The brand is constantly coming out with new products and if you are interested in trying out some innovative new items, then now is a great opportunity to do so.

L'Oreal Paris Dream Lengths 8 Second Wonder Water and Heat Slayer

L’Oreal Paris Dream Lengths 8 Second Wonder Water

When it comes to detangling hair, a conditioner is usually what I reach for, but sometimes I just need a little bit of extra help. That’s where the L’Oreal Paris Dream Lengths 8 Second Wonder Water (C$12.99) comes in.

This product is a conditioning treatment that is designed to be left in your hair for eight seconds and rinses out to reveal smoother, shinier, and silkier hair. This is a rinse, meaning you apply it between your shampoo and conditioner in the shower and is great to use for long or damaged hair.

I love the idea of this product since sometimes I’ll go in with two different conditioners so my hair is softer and silkier.  Every hair product has a certain purpose but when it comes to conditioner, I like it to leave my hair soft and tangle free. That’s where this comes in since it detangles in only eight seconds and leaves hair five-times shiner and four-times smoother.

Okay, so I tried out this product for the first time yesterday and I can honestly say this stuff is a miracle worker.  It didn’t seem like it would be doing much when I first put it on, but as soon as the water hit it, my hair instantly felt so smooth and soft. I was truly surprised at how amazing this product is.

Although it is aimed at long hair, obviously any hair length can use it and I think it’s one of those products that are just really useful to have on hand.

L'Oreal Paris Dream Lengths 8 Second Wonder Water and Heat Slayer

L’Oreal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray

Another item in the Dream Lengths line is the Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray (C$8.99).  I use a lot of styling products but I’m trying to be more conscious of using a heat protectant before using any styling tools.

This spray is targeted for straighteners but can be used for any heat tool. If you are using a straightener, L’Oreal says that it will give you three-day sleek hair and overall will protect it for up to 230 degrees celsius. Spray this product before using a hot tool to protect your hair from heat damage, tame frizz, seal in shine, and fight humidity.

If you use hot tools on your hair, I recommend using a product like this. Best part about this one is that it’s very affordable, so it won’t break the bank to pick up.

L'Oreal Paris Colour Radiance Deep Purple Mask

L’Oreal Paris Colour Radiance Deep Purple Mask

Since I have blonde highlights, I always try to use a blonde shampoo at least once a week.  I also love to throw in a deep-conditioning mask every once in a while, so when you combine the two it’s a match made in heaven.

The L’Oreal Paris Colour Radiance Deep Purple Mask (C$8.99) nourishes hair and neutralizes brassy tones in just one use. Apply this mask to shampooed hair and leave on for three to five minutes to help bring back vibrant colour to blondes.  Blonde hair naturally becomes brassy over time and applying a purple mask to your hair once a week will help neutralize blonde and make it more vibrant.

This mask is tinted with purple toners and a UV filter to condition colour-treated hair, leaving it more brighter and also making it feel more smoother, softer, and sleeker.

I have a few different purple masks, but again, with L’Oreal Paris, since this is a drugstore brand, the prices are amazing and the quality of the products is top notch.

L’Oreal Paris has a few other new haircare products this season but I really love these three since they all are concerns that I face when it comes to haircare for me personally. I’m always on the hunt for products that make my blonde more smoother, sleeker, and healthier, and these all are great for accomplishing that.

Supermodel brow: The brow products you need to try from Charlotte Tilbury

The one thing that can really transform your face? A proper brow.

I’ve always had pretty thick brows all my life (I’m lucky that the hair grows really fast, I usually have to trim my brows at least once a week). Now with that being said, I do have mine microbladed, something I’ve been maintaining for the last three or so years.  Before I got it done, I didn’t think I really needed it, but after getting the service, I can tell you, having symmetrical and strong brows really do make a difference in the overall look and shape of your face.

With microblading, you need to get this service redone once a year since the pigment fades away after time.  For the most part, I don’t really fill in my brows, but if I’m really doing my makeup or going out somewhere, I’ll fill in my brows or touch them up since often when I apply foundation it can cover up the pigment. Anyways, what I’m trying to get at here is that although I do have microbladed brows, I still like to keep some brow products on hand since they always come in handy.

Charlotte Tilbury as a makeup artist is actually known for creating a certain brow look, something she calls the Supermodel Brow Look.  Her signature creation is full, fluffy, feathered and fixed and is a shape that is flattering on just about anyone. Since we all don’t access to Ms. Tilbury herself on a daily basis (or really any basis since that would be a total dream), thankfully, she has come out with a number of brow products that will help you achieve her signature look at home.

So if you’re ready for your “browformation”, then keep reading…

Charlotte Tilbury brow pencils

So the first step is to fill in your brows and Charlotte Tilbury has two pencils to choose from for this. First up is the new Brow Cheat pencil (C$32). This retractable pencil is refillable and is aimed to mimic the look of real brow hair.

This pencil, which also has a spoolie on the other end, adds shape and definition to the brows and the pencil allows you to create featherlight strokes to give you a natural-looking shape. The liner part features an angled tip for precision and the formula includes pigment and wax for a natural-looking effect that won’t budge.

This pencil will give you results for up to 16 hours and is also waterproof, smudge, and humidity proof.  It comes in eight shades.

If you are looking for more shape and definition, then take a look at the Brow Lift pencil (C$32), which is a thicker pencil than the Brow Cheat version.  Also available in eight shades, this retractable pencil is also refillable and mimics a more full, fluffy brow hair effect.  It also has an angled tip and includes carnauba wax for stretch and elasticity, emollients for a creamy and smooth application, vitamin E to hydrate and condition, and pure natural pigments for natural-looking colour.

Since this pencil is larger and thicker than the Brow Cheat, I would recommend this for someone like me, where you may just need a little bit of product and are using it for a more sculpted and defined appearance. Typically with a brow pencil, I like to fill in the tail and tip, as well as the bottoms of the brow, so this adds the right amount of product for the look I’m going for.

Chalotte Tilbury brow products

The next step in your brow transformation is to feather, meaning to add texture and tint for a fuller-looking appearance. Your best tool for this is the Legendary Brows Tinted Eyebrow Gel (C$30), which is an eyebrow gel that features a micro-fine brush to mimic natural brow hairs.  This makes it quick to add shape, texture, and tint and is great to use on days where you want something for your brows but don’t necessarily need to do the whole shebang.

Available in four shades, this gel coats, shades, and grooms the eyebrows and will also set brows in place. Since the spoolie is so small it’s great for coating every hair, even those fine, little baby ones. Brows last in place for 10 hours and it’s also water resistant.

Finally, to set everything in place, use the Brow Fix Clear Eyebrow Gel (C$30), which is a clear brow gel that sets, defines, and holds brows in place for up to 24 hours.

A clear brow gel for all hair colors that sets, defines, and holds brows in place for up to 24 hours.

This is one of those products that is so handy to have since it suits any brow hair colour and is filled with amazing ingredients. The formula contains silk proteins to improve hair condition and leave it feeling soft and shiny.  It also has panthenol elixir to strengthen hair and improve and renew the appearance of damaged hair. Best part is that is lasts for a very long time (all day and then some) as well as is smudge proof, waterproof, and humidity proof.

When it comes to knockout brows, Charlotte Tilbury definitely has you covered, and best part is that unlike our mouths, which are covered by masks still, your brows are pretty much always on display, so why not make them showstopping?
