26 April, 2016

Here are our favorite beauty buys that you will use again and again. They are wallet friendly and will get your girlfriends asking, where is that from? Whether you are looking to restock your makeup bag or carry a few extra special products in your purse for the day to day, here is our go to guide. We tried and tested each product for efficiency, feel, and results. We hope you find something you love. 

 

 

 

korres-lip-butter-jasmine

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine $12 at Sephora 

This lip butter is delicate and soft with a slight pink tint so it is perfect for everyday. The consistency is smooth and the balm is very hydrating. The jasmine is our favorite scent and colour. 

 

 

lavender-hand-sanitizer

EO Organic Lavender Hand Sanitizer $3.99 at Pharmaca 

When you are on the go this lavender hand sanitizer is great. Keep it in your purse for after a workout class or to freshen up. It has pure essential oils so the scent is real lavender and won’t leave your hands feeling dry like many alcohol laden hand sanitizers. 

 

 

rose-cleanser

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Cleansing Gel $38 at Sephora 

A tiny amount of this cleanser goes a long way. With a rich lather and a fresh roses scent this gel will last and last, keeping your face clean and smelling lovely. A great basic!

 

 

hydra-n-1-creme-yonka

Hydra No. 1 Creme by Yonka $73 at Yonka Paris or locally at Orange Poppy Spa                                                             

This cream is magical and full of essential oils, vitamins and hyaluronic acid, which means extra, extra moisturizing. Yonka Paris is an age old French skincare line that stands the test of time and quality. A pea size amount covers your whole face. A great night cream for winter, dry climates and sensitive skin.

 

tide-to-go-pen

Tide To Go Pen $4.94 at Walmart                                                                                                                                                 

This little wand is essential for summer. Carry it in your purse for any coffee, food or dirt spots you get on your summer whites, and they will disappear instantly. It can also be used on coloured fabrics as well. Dot, rub and voila, you are good to go!

 

 juice-beauty

Phyto Pigments Liquid Lip $24 at Juice Beauty 

This lip gloss delivers a super saturated colour punch and is easy to apply. All the colours are beautiful but our favorites are Kate (soft pink) for day, Drew (a pretty summer orange), Gwyneth (a purple pink) and Reese (a wow! red). It’s fun to get one for day and one for night. The colours are gorgeous and the perfect pop to any outfit. Because the cap twists on, there is no risk of having it pop off in your purse like lipstick, so it is easy to take with you everywhere you go.

 

osmosis-protect

Osmosis SPF 30 Protect $30 at Orange Poppy Spa                                                                                                                       

This is a zinc sunscreen that goes on smooth without any leftover residue. The spf is perfect because it is more than 15 so if you get caught chatting with friends outside for a couple hours you will be okay. Osmosis is a local Colorado company and this spf is non-polluting unlike chemical sunscreens. So you can feel good about the environment and shopping locally! Mix with your daily moisturizer for an extra smooth application.

 

lip2cheek-rms

RMS lip2cheek $36 at RMS Beauty 

This little pot of pigment can be used as blush or lip tint. Use your fingertip to apply.  It’s a tiny container so you can easily take it with you in your purse or makeup bag to travel light. It gives your cheeks a youthful, dewy look and a little pop of colour for your lips. Pair it with mascara for an easy, day time look. Comes is several shades, but we love Demure, which emulates a natural rosy cheek.

 

elta-md

EltaMD Tinted UV Daily SPF 40 $28 at DermStore                                                                                                               

This tinted moisturizer is a 3 in 1 product. Throw away your foundation, this product is a moisturizer, spf and cover up in one! Packed with hyaluronic acid and transparent zinc oxide this wonder product keeps you moisturized, protected from UVA/UVB rays, and provides light coverage for a smooth complexion. The price is amazing and if you like a quick morning routine this product is a must.

 

rituel-star

Rituel de Fille Eye Soot $27 at Rituel de Fille 

This is the perfect eye shimmer. It comes in several colours but our favorite is Sigil. Dust it on your eyes using your finger tip. It adds the right amount of shimmer and reflects light beautifully. Think of it as a rose gold sheen for your eyelids. Plus it comes in a cute little pot with stars on the lid. It’s basically a little piece of heaven in a jar.

 

vichy-white

Vichy Ideal Body Milk Serum $20 at French Pharmacies in Canada, France and St. Martin

This body lotion is beautiful. It feels luxurious and because of the hyaluronic acid and 10 basic oils it firms, brightens and smooths dry or sun drenched skin. It has apricot, macadamia, rose hip, black currant, jojoba and a few more natural miracle working skin oils. I found this lotion at a French pharmacy while on vacation, and have been looking for it ever since. Vichy is a French company with 80 years of experience in skincare. If you find yourself abroad take a trip to the French pharmacy to pick up this gem. You will not regret it. Plus it is hypo-allergenic and great for sensitive skin.
