What I would give to be whisked away to a beach right now…
I swear, if you are a reader of my blog and live near a beach, you are the luckiest person in the world. If you’re like me and live smack dab in the middle of Canada and very far away from anything and everything tropical, then you’ll know the struggle of wishing you were somewhere warm with a pina colada in hand and listening to the waves hit the shores….
Okay, so if you are in the same boat as me then don’t worry, Bath & Body Works Canada has released the most dreamy collection and it’s just what I needed right now.
First off to set the mood, you need to pick up with Waikiki Beach Coconut Three-Wick Candle, which will transport you to the beach (mentally, that is). This candle has notes of tropical white coconut, saltwater breeze, sun-bleached woods with essential oils and it smells like an absolute dream.
The candle comes housed in a neon pink container (seriously, everything about this candle is goals) and is the perfect scent to pick up for your home this season. I think it just might be my new fave BBW candle since it smells so delicious and just amps me up for summer 2021.
Speaking of scent, if you want to carry around a little beach whenever you go, then you need to pick up the Waikiki Beach Coconut Fine Fragrance. This fragrance is the same scent as the candle, which, trust me, once you smell the candle, you’ll want to wear this everywhere you go.
I love the BBW fine fragrances since they are very soft but still bask you in fragrance. These sprays are a conditioning aloe mist with essential oils, so not only do you get to smell amazing, but they also condition the skin.
Moving onto body cream, another new scent is Belize, which is a blend of banana daiquiri, pineapple, and golden sands. Wear the scent as part of their Belize Tropical Cabana Ultra Shea Body Cream, which is a shea and cocoa butter moisturizer with aloe and essential oils to hydrate the skin for 24 hours. This cream is not only incredibly fragrant and delicious but also sinks into skin and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.
Another new scent is Bahamas Passionfruit & Banana Flower, which I got in their shower gel. This shower gel is a blend of passionfruit, pineapple leaves, and banana flowers and has that same tropical, island life vibe as the rest of the collection.
This shower gel not only smells amazing but also has vitamin E, aloe, and essential oils to nourish the skin. It also lathers up really nicely and is non-drying.
Finally, this wouldn’t be a Bath & Body Works post without mentioning one of their iconic hand soaps. I love the foaming hand soap and always try to have these stocked in my bathroom so I’m never left without one. The scent of the season is definitely Island Margarita, which I have in their gentle foaming hand soap.
This scent is a blend of freshly squeezed line and sea salt and their gentle foaming hand soap has natural essential oils in it, as well as vitamin E and shea extract and aloe to leave hands nice and soft.This soap lathers up and removes germs while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture barrier. These are a must have since washing your hands has never been more important.
Bath & Body Works has these scents in pretty much all of their items, so if you love one in particular you can purchase the whole line and literally bathe yourself in it from the start of your day to the end. I love tropical fragrances in general, so when I got this collection in it not only made my heart sing, but it was just the mental vacay I needed right about now.

‘Tis the season for showing some skin!
Now that it’s officially April and the weather is pretty much in the teens everyday, I am starting to get amped up about tanning and wearing all my cute spring and summer clothes.
With warmer weather comes showing more skin, which means that I’ve been prepping my skin to be in tip-top shape. Now I have pretty clear and smooth skin to begin with, but if you have issues with acne on your skin or blemishes or bumps, then Pixi Beauty’s Glycolic skin line might be the thing for you.
This line is comprised of three products, a body wash, a body polish, and a body lotion. Starting first with the Glycolic Body Wash ($18 USD), this body wash contains glycolic acid to exfoliate and brighten, as well as aloe vera to soothe and hydrate, and ginseng to improve circulation and energize.
This body wash is hydrating on the skin, so not only will it it clean your skin, but also keep it hydrated and soft.
If you want something a little more intensive, then take a look at their Glycolic Body Peel ($24 USD). This body peel acts like an exfoliator and the glycolic and lactic acids polish and slough away dry and dull skin, leaving you feeling silky and soft.
Use this body peel with the body wash at least once a week in the shower or bath for glowing and soft skin.
Finally, to complete the trifecta, finish off with the Glycolic Body Lotion ($24 USD), which is aimed to improve the tone and texture of your skin over time. This lotion contains a blend of aloe, grape seed oil, and ginseng to hydrate skin and restore and maintain optimum moisture levels.
This lotion feels very lightweight and absorbs into the skin nicely and quickly so you’re not left with a tacky or greasy feeling. It also has a pleasant scent to it which is very uplifting when applied on the skin.
When used together, these three products are great for delivering smooth, hydrated, and healthy-looking skin. I think these would be amazing to use this spring and summer to gain a more glowing and healthy appearance.

Fenty Beauty is killing it with the new releases lately.
Last week I reviewed the new Gloss Bomb Colour Drip Lip Creams and just when I thought that would be it for Fenty for a while, she drops a new foundation. Well, kind of…
You’ve probably been seeing the new Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint (C$39) all over your feed lately since it’s the brand’s newest face product. This skin tint is aimed to give your skin a blurred-out effect and a light coverage that is buildable.
Available in 25 shades, this skin tint is easy to apply, blends in wonderfully, and evens out the complexion. It contains a hydrating QuickBlur complex that is perfect for days where you want to wear minimal makeup and will be perfect for the upcoming spring and summer weather (great for the pool or beach).
I received two shades from the line, Shade 4 (light medium with cool undertones) and Shade 6 (light medium with cool neutral undertones). Although the shade range is smaller than her original foundation (with 40 shades), the idea with this product is that it still suits everyone, but each shade actually groups together colours from her original Pro Filt’r foundation.
You can either apply this with a brush or your fingers, but since I find applying these kinds of products more evenly with a brush, I chose to go that route and found that it blended in really nicely and was very sheer on the skin. I did a second coat to build up the coverage and thankfully, for the purposes of this review only, I am currently sporting a pimple on the lower half of my face, which was covered up really nicely after two coats. Also, unlike a more traditional foundation, you can’t really see the product on the skin once you blend it out, so it does a nice job of making your skin look very natural and even.
Fenty also says that this is heat, sweat, and transfer-resistant, and although I could feel it on my face, it didn’t feel heavy at all and I didn’t really notice I was wearing it after a while.
Now the only thing I don’t like about this product is the fact that it doesn’t contain an SPF in the formula. I believe Fenty also released an SPF as part of the Fenty Skin range recently, so maybe they wanted to up-sell on the two products, but typically with a product like this, it would include a sunscreen. I wear SPF everyday, so it’s not a huge deal, but I did find it odd that she didn’t include it in the formula.
Since I’ve been more of a no-makeup girl lately, I actually really like this product and feel like it will get tons of wear this summer and beyond. It really is great for everyday wear and if you are the kind of person who likes to go light with their makeup, then I think you’ll really enjoy this. I can tell you right now, it will definitely be seeing a lot of use as we head into the summer months.
