September means back to school, and back to school means lots of late nights! Whether you’re staying up to study for a midterm or to party your night away, tired skin is never a cute look. My school days may be behind me, but I still need to combat dull skin for that bright and hydrated complexion. And the Origins GinZing collection is perfect for that! Formulated with coffee beans and panax ginseng, these products help get your tired skin energized in no time.
A Givenchy mascara! Where should I even start? As much as I enjoy the finer things in life, for something that you’re supposed to dispose every 3 months, I’m all about drugstore brands. But Givenchy’s Noir Interdit Mascara is not like anything else I’ve tried in the past. Because it comes with a revolutionary wand that can bend to a 90 degree angle for maximum ease of application.
It’s no surprise that pink is one of my favourite colours (duh!) and since it’s National Pink Day today, I thought I’d talk about a mask that I love that is also pink! I’ve been a fan of Origins for a while and even though I haven’t tried too many of their products, I like a lot of their masks and most of them work well with my skin. But this one – the Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay ($32) – I think it’s safe to say that it’s my favourite so far!
When I came back from my travels in May, I got really sick – a fever and a cold. My skin was parched from being physically dehydrated, and my nose got all red and flaky from sneezing so much. Thank god I also came home to a super fun PR package from Clinique – this Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate was exactly what my skin needed at the time.
