Lotus Aroma | Daily Face Cream, Daily Hydrating Serum, Vitamin C Night Serum: Review
Lotus Aroma is a Canadian company offering natural skincare and wellness products. The brand reached out to me a while back to try out some of their products and I gladly agreed as I am always up for supporting Canadians especially since there aren't that many Canadian beauty brands around (RIP Bite Beauty). Focused on plant-based, clean ingredients that are vegan and cruelty-free, Lotus Aroma offers an extensive range of skincare, body care, and essential oil products available in stores and online at Shoppers Drug Mart. I tried three of their best-selling skincare products, the Daily Face Cream (C$49 for 40 ml), Daily Hydrating Serum (C$54 for 30 ml), and Vitamin C Night Serum (C$54 for 30 ml).

Glow Recipe | Watermelon Glow Dew Balm Sunscreen Stick SPF 45: Review
It's no secret at this point that I am pretty much a die-hard fan of Glow Recipe. The brand makes some of my favorite skincare products (ex. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops) so I get excited every time they drop a new item. However, it's also no secret that I was not a fan of the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Sunscreen Glow Recipe released back in 2022. With a formulation that didn't fully absorb and pilled like crazy no matter what I did, the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Sunscreen was generally panned by fans, resulting in Glow Recipe eventually discontinuing the product. So imagine my surprise when I learned about the release of a new SPF product from Glow Recipe, this time in the form of a sunscreen stick called the Watermelon Glow Dew Balm SPF 45 (C$41 for 16.5 g). Formulated with chemical filters and niacinamide, the Watermelon Glow Dew Balm SPF 45 promises a dewy SPF protection that's easy to re-apply on the go. To read all about this product, click......

Naturium | Multi-Peptide Moisturizer: Review

Naturium | Multi-Peptide Moisturizer: Review
A while back Shoppers Drug Mart announced that they will start carrying Naturium in stores and on their website in Canada. This was met with great fanfare on social media but I had actually never heard of the brand before! Founded in 2020 by American beauty influencer Susan Yara, Naturium aims to offer clinically backed and affordable skincare that's vegan and cruelty-free. The brand catalogue is pretty extensive but only a selection of it is currently available at Shoppers Drug Mart. Being completely new to Naturium, I thought the Multi-Peptide Moisturizer (C$33.99 for 50 g) would be a good foray into the brand. To read my thoughts on this "mid-weight" moisturizer, click......

SOME BY MI | Retinol Intense Reactivating Serum: Review

SOME BY MI | Retinol Intense Reactivating Serum: Review
As mentioned before, I love ordering Korean beauty and skincare products from Stylevana. Aside from their amazing pricing, Stylevana always offers various full-sized gifts with purchases. One of the best gifts with purchases I've received so far is the SOME BY MI Retinol Intense Reactivating Serum (C$27.99 for 30 ml). For the longest time, I've struggled with retinol products. I've always wanted to incorporate them into my skincare routine but I can never seem to get past the "retinol purge", aka the breakouts, flaking, and sensitivities commonly associated with the first few weeks of retinol use. However, I thought I would give things one more try with the SOME BY MI Retinol Intense Reactivating Serum. Thankfully, the results have been great so I thought I would share my experience with today......

Belif | Moisturizing Bomb Toner & Aqua Bomb PHA Exfoliating Toner Pads: Review
I've used a lot of Belif products in the past but I've actually never tried any toners from the brand. Granted, Belif is most known for its moisturizers (namely The True Cream Aqua Bomb and The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb, reviewed here), but the brand has amped up its toner offerings in the past few years. Today I will be talking about the Aqua Bomb PHA Exfoliating Toner Pads (C$32.50 for 70 Pads) and the Moisturizing Bomb Toner (C$40.50 for 150 ml). To read all about them, click......
