  • The Inkey List: An Overview
    by Henna on March 20, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    A few weeks ago, I posted about The Inkey List on IGTV.  The Inkey List is a brand from England that’s now available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart.  They are ingredient-focussed and so they make products that really work!  I’ve been test-driving some of them and I’ll post reviews soon, but first if you […]

  • Aveda Sensory Journey
    by Henna on March 20, 2019 at 1:37 am

    Back in 2007, I went into an Aveda store and started smelling everything – and you know how amazing their products smell.  And a sales associate thought I might like to create my own perfume since I liked the vibe of their scents and so I went on the Aveda Sensory Journey. The journey is really […]

  • Fragrance Friday: Tom Ford Santal Blush
    by Henna on March 15, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    My latest favourite from Tom Ford is Santal Blush.  It’s polished, airy, and cool – perfect for a bit of aloofness or to wear in a time where you think things are going to be hot. The main note of Santal Blush is sandalwood.  Dry and almost powdery, it’s a note that’s present from the […]

  • Sothy’s Hydra 3Ha Range
    by Henna on March 14, 2019 at 1:03 pm

    We are big fans of Sothys Paris skincare over here – their formulas are rich and moisturizing and make skin feel so supple. The latest range, Hydra 3Ha is perfect if you have dehydrated not dry skin.  Dehydrated skin is lacking moisture, while dry skin is lacking oil. I actually have dehydrated skin that’s oily. […]

  • Differin Gel Review
    by Henna on March 13, 2019 at 1:03 pm

    Differin is a retinoid product that in Canada is only available with a prescription, but in the US, a low concentration of it is available over-the-counter.  So guess what I did when I was in San Francisco over the Christmas break?  I went to the local CVS and found it, right next to Neutrogena and […]

  • Bumble and Bumble Bb.Curl Butter Masque and Luminous Oil Spray
    by Henna on March 12, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    I’ve been using these two great products from the Bumble and Bumble Bb.Curl line: the Butter Masque ($49) and the Luminous Oil Spray ($42); actually, I liked the Butter Masque so much that I used it every time I washed my hair because it took care of frizz like nothing else. In fact, I posted […]

  • Beaute Lipgloss
    by Henna on March 11, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    In case you’re unfamiliar, Beaute is the line of brushes and lip glosses by Canadian makeup artist Beau Nelson. If you’ve been looking for a gloss that’s completely unsticky yet stays on for a long time, then look no further. The Beaute Luminous Volume Gloss goes on smooth and actually moisturizes your lips. I thought […]

  • A Bit About Peels!
    by Henna on March 8, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    Hi Friends! I made a little video about peels, and if you’re extra interested in skincare you might want to check it out. Peels are great for reducing acne, clearing up acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, and even fine lines. At home peels are relatively gentle, as long as you follow instructions and monitor your skin.  If […]

  • Derma-E Acne Blemish
    by Henna on March 8, 2019 at 4:26 am

    The most popular anti-acne products from the drugstore can be so drying on your skin that you might actually be inclined to stop using them, which means that they won’t really have time to do what they’re supposed to do.  The flip side is that you keep using them and end up with dry and […]

  • Current Morning Routine
    by Henna on March 5, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Time for a quick update of my morning routine.  I’ve been doing this since I went on vacation this past Christmas, and it worked so well – it was so quick and easy – that I’m still doing it even though I’m at home. The routine is this: wash face as usual. Then use The […]
