If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ll know that coconut oil is all the rage in the beauty world right now! For instance, it can remove makeup while keeping your skin moisturized, taking the stripped feeling out of the equation. However, coconut oil usually comes in a large glass jar and stays solid at room temperature, so it’s not the most user-friendly (read: annoying) product to use at your vanity or sink. Which is why when I discovered NIU BODY‘s coconut oil makeup wipes, I had to give it a try!
Evy Jo & Co is an online modern apothecary based in Montreal with an artisan line of handcrafted and 100% natural bath and skincare products. All the ingredients (such as herbs, essential oils, clays, etc.) are plant-based, organic, raw, or sustainably-sourced from Canadian and Québec-based suppliers. I discovered the brand on Instagram and after asking the Founder/Owner Evelyn about her brand and products, she was kind enough to send me some to try out!
This radiance-restoring serum ($50) is tailored to people in their 20s to 30s who start to notice that their skin doesn’t recover from stress as easily as it once did, a.k.a. me. On top of getting your glow on, this serum claims to also refine texture, shrink pores, and blur imperfections, giving you fresher, brighter and smoother skin altogether. That’s a lot of promises from just a bottle of serum, so does it really do all that?
Ever since I got my hair done last month, I have been on the lookout for products to help manage the damage from bleaching without ruining my hair colour. And I’ve found it! If you tend to put your hair through heating tools or harsh treatments, the Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover line will get your hair stronger, softer, and shinier without the use of awful chemicals and fillers.
A few months ago I did a really large haul at Sephora and picked up a few skincare sets, including this Laneige Brightening Kit. This kit retails for $18 only so these radiance-boosting products are pretty small, but they will still last for more than just a week or two for you to really test out the results. And it is still available on Sephora Canada!
