If you know me in person, you’ll know I’m a tea lover. Which is why when I discovered MIYU Beauty, I fell in love immediately. They’re an eco-luxe beauty brand that offers natural tea and skincare blends that help protect your skin and unveil your inner glow, so you can achieve beauty from within. I have been trying out their hydrate mi deluxe pairing for a couple of weeks now and have been really enjoying it! It comes with premium loose tea leafs, tea filters, and a beauty essence.
I’m not adventurous when it comes to fragrances i.e. cult favourites like Chanel’s Mademoiselle and Dior’s J’adore are my go-to scents. So when I had a chance to try a niche fragrance brand, I was so excited! CLEAN Reserve is a luxury fragrance collection housed under the CLEAN franchise. They believe in sustainable beauty, blended with raw ingredients for a unique fragrance experience that encourage individuality. I mean, just look at that bottle – isn’t it simple yet unique?
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?
