  • Beautycounter Countercontrol Collection
    by Henna on November 13, 2018 at 3:27 pm

    I love the idea behind Beautycontrol Countercontrol collection because it’s meant to mattify the skin without drying it out.  As someone with oily skin, I find that the more I try to mattify my skin, the dryer it looks and sometimes it actually because more oily as a result.  My skin overcompensates for the intense […]

  • Tom Ford Fougère d’Argent and Fougère Platine
    by Henna on November 12, 2018 at 3:32 pm

    Here’s the short review of Tom Ford’s new fragrances, Fougère d’Argent and Fougère Platine: they smell like men’s fragrances.  I’m thinking Hugo Boss, men’s counter at the Bay, your dad’s favourite toilette, the sharpness that lingered in the air after he left the house in the morning, or what you’d smell in his car. Fougères […]

  • Self-Care with Avene
    by Henna on November 5, 2018 at 3:49 pm

    A good night for me always includes a time when I can get some self-care in.  Self-care can mean going out, but if I’m staying in then I want a good body scrub and oil, and right now these two from Avene are it. A good body skincare oil is a must-have in the winter […]

  • A313 – The French Pharmacy Retinol You Can Get off Amazon
    by Henna on November 2, 2018 at 2:48 pm

    Somewhere on the interwebs (reddit? maybe?) I came across the mention of A313, a retinol available in France that one could get on Amazon.  What made it unique was the pomade texture, something I hadn’t come across before and what I thought would be luxe and hydrating. It’s actually a rename of the former Avibon, […]

  • Sapphire Hair Straightener
    by Henna on October 31, 2018 at 3:39 pm

    In some way we live in the best of times.  Trends like foundation shades in lots of different colours, and “boss babes” taking over the world means that the media is reflecting the real world back at us in a more authentic way, and we are here to be part of the revolution.  That’s why […]

  • Winter Skin Savers
    by Henna on October 29, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte time, but some days it feels like winter is closer than ever, and so I’ve been layering up the moisturizer.  Starting with body oil and ending with a body butter. When my skin is damp, I put on some Bio-Oil.  It’s been around for age, and it works better than any […]

  • Fragrance Friday: Byredo Gypsy Water
    by Henna on October 26, 2018 at 1:41 pm

    I’ll be honest, I was ready to hate Byredo Gypsy Water because it’s one of those scents that I figured would smell too warm or too sweet on me.  The notes are: bergamot, juniper berries, lemon, pepper, incense, orris, pine needle, amber, sandalwood, and vanilla.  Nothing that I haven’t smelled before and nothing that really reached […]

  • Buxom Lip Powder and Matte Lips
    by Henna on October 23, 2018 at 3:38 am

    Matte lips will always be my favourite look to wear.  The colour lasts longer, and it’s a true bonus if I can find a lippie that leaves a bit of a stain on my lips too. I like a lippie that I put on first thing in the morning and forget about until lunch.  I […]

  • Fragrance Friday: Fall Scents with Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    by Henna on October 19, 2018 at 2:59 pm

    Time to change up the fragrance game and wear something a little warmer for fall.  In my case, it’s Tom Ford’s Tuscan Leather which I just got. I’ve got Champaca, and Cafe Rose, and they’re my favourites, so the people at the counter suggested Tuscan Leather and although it has notes of amber and vanilla […]

  • Colab Dry Shampoo
    by Henna on October 19, 2018 at 1:55 pm

    Spoiler alert: it’s not totally free of the white residue but it does blend into my black hair super easily and it smells like nice perfume not hair product, which is perfect because at least a little part of a dry shampoo’s job is to make your smell better and not let everyone know that […]
