It’s very dry where I live. Think of a desert with snow. As I’ve aged I’ve found that my skin is less able to cope with the climate than it was when I was younger. It’s still oily but now, for the first time in my life, I am having to deal with the occasional dry patch, some redness, and a general tight feeling in my skin. Unpleasant. I got this generous sample size of Sunday Riley Good Genes All-I-One Lactic Acid Treatment in a Sephora Favourites box of goodies I bought last winter. I finally got around to using it in February and within a few weeks my skin was looking the best it had in a long time. Colour me impressed.
Volition Beauty is a new to me brand, but one that I am quickly becoming more interested in. I’ve only tried one of their products so far but it is good. Really good. Welcome to my first Volition Beauty review!
Hello there! It seems like it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a regular beauty related post here on Poutine and Prada! Welcome to my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream review!
I’ve mentioned this product once or twice on my Instagram account but it deserves a full post because it’s a game changer. A year or two ago I started noticing changes in my skin, in particular dry patches popping up on my face. It was something I’d never really had to deal with before. I tried a number of different night creams and sleep masks. I exfoliated. I even tried vaseline. Nothing really helped until I tried the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer on a whim. It was a good whim.
Herbivore is a brand I became aware of a year or so ago when Sephora started carrying their stuff. I was initially attracted to it because of the beautiful and simple packaging. I do judge books by their covers, kittens, and if Herbivore writes a book I’ll be their first customer! Once I learned a bit more about the brand, namely they don’t test on animals and they use high quality, natural ingredients and none of the nasties like parabens, I made my first order.
