Protect your skin this winter with Olay

Fall brings beautiful changing leaves, but also chilly temperatures and harsh environments for your skin. Olay‘s new collection helps to cushion the blow to sensitive skin.

First, there’s their new gel mask collection. I love gel products, because I feel like my skin absorbs them much easier. Olay’s Hydrating Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin E infuses skin with nourishing moisture while you snooze. The combination is pleasantly light, and my skin felt soft and moist when I woke up after using the mask overnight. The hydrating mask is my favourite, but the overnight gel mask also comes in two other formulas, firming and brightening.

Next, there’s the new Olay Sensitive collection, formulated to calm stressed, dry skin and help fortify skin’s surface over time.

Over 72% of Canadian women report having sensitive skin. This collection doesn’t include soap, dyes or harsh surfactants. The ingredients used have been proven to fight redness and irritation. The best part? It provides immediate relief and helps protect against future flare ups.

When I get home after a long night, the last thing that I want to worry about is irritating my skin with makeup remover. I’ve been loving the Olay Sensitive Makeup Remover Wipes. They work really well, and remove my makeup in a few swipes. The wipes have micellar cleansing molecules to trap dirt and oil inside and remove it, so you don’t need to rinse with water.

After, I finish up with the Calming Liquid Cleanser. This product uses lamellar cleansing molecules which glide across skin to lift away dirt and impurities without disrupting skin’s natural structure. Both products are inspired by Hungarian Water Essence,and is infused with essences of aloe, cucumber and tea extracts.

The colour stays true with buildable, medium to full coverage for all skin tones, and I mean all! The foundation is available in a whopping 56 shades in Canada and is $56 each.

Get your glow on with Stila’s Little White Lies heavenly highlighting palette

You can never have too many highlighters. Stila has come out with an amazing highlighter palette called “Little White Lies Heavenly Highlighting Palette”. This one is special because on the surface, the colours look very similar. When applied, each shade comes to life, and transforms. The texture is a cream and powder combination.

Another cool thing about the highlighter is the base is actually translucent. What is being picked up by the light, are actually tinted pearl particles. The palette comes with 3 shades, and lasts all day when applied.

This palette is perfect to give you a summer glow.

Fresh Summer Scents

Summer and fall have the absolute best scents. When I think about summer, I think lemons, mandarin and other fresh, bright fruits.

This summer, I’m trying a new scent: Nest Wild Poppy. Poppies are such beautiful flowers, but I’ve never thought of them in a fragrance. That being said, I’m totally in love with their Wild Poppy Eau de Parfum. It’s an intoxicating mix of pear, raspberry, and apricot with hints of Himalayan jasmine and Rose de Grasse. I didn’t realize how stunning poppies were until watching the behind the scenes video below!

Ever since I made the switch, I’ve been getting lots of compliments and questions about where I got my perfume. It’s my official scent of the summer.

As for my home, I’m ushering in fruity scents with my Velvet Peardiffuser and candle. This lush scent is gentle and refreshing.

This understated fragrance blends velvety Anjou pear and crisp apple with bright, crushed lemon leaves. Hints of peony accented with white musk and amber round out this scent, creating its lush, flavorful appeal.

Nest fragrances are available at Sephora.
