There was one problem – I’m not very good at putting on makeup, so I lucked out when my teenage niece came for a visit! She did my makeup and I have to say that she did a good job. She said that they go … Continue reading

EFFACLAR MAT by @LaRochePosayca ~ moisturiser for oily skin

Since being introduced to La Roche-Posay products in the spring, I feel like I have found a skin care line that is reliable and has products suiting almost everyone’s needs! I do suffer from oily skin on my face in the typical “t-zone” areas so I tested out the new EFFACLAR MAT moisturizer. This moisturizer has been made to reduce pores and sebum flow and to keep skin matt. Because I know that it is important to moisturize my face regardless of whether it is oily, I have always struggled to find a moisturizer that moisturizes but doesn’t leave my … Continue reading

It’s the perfect time of year to have received this product because we are spending more time outside with the nicer weather!I love how this every day product goes on without the “sticky” feeling of sunscreen on my face. The fact that it is slightly tinted also allows me to not put any additional make up on most days. This lotion has zinc oxide (Z-COTE®) and titanium dioxide, and is enhanced by artemia salina, a plankton extract, to increase the skin’s defenses and resistance to … Continue reading

LA ROCHE-POSAY has an amazing lip treatment called Ceralip that helps severely chapped lips.I really love how Ceralip feels going on – it isn’t too glossy, yet it is in a typical “glossy lip balm” tube. It definitely helps to keep my lips feeling moisturised. Every once in a while I get terrible cracks in the corners in my mouth that really hurt, unfortunately Ceralip didn’t fix those cracks any faster than my typical lip treatments, but it did provide relief to them. I used Ceralip over top of my regular lip colour (when I wear it) and on its … Continue reading
