LK Skincare: A Review

When an email from Leila, one of the owners of LK Skincare, popped up in my Gmail account in September asking me if I’d like to review their products I was, well, I was gobsmacked quite frankly. At first I wasn’t sure if it was real, but real it was and soon enough the LK Skincare day cream and cleanser were making their way to me. I’ve been using the products for a bit over a month now and feel ready to give you my thoughts. Welcome to my LK Skincare Review!

Maison Margiela Replica Review

 

My love affair with fragrance has been ongoing for as long as I can remember. When I was a young teenager I received an apple scented body spray for Christmas. I was beyond thrilled and wore it to death. My tastes have matured since then but my intoxication with scent has remained the same. I still buy most of my body products based on smell. Fragrance invokes memories for me in such a visceral way. Any time I catch a whiff of nutmeg I’m immediately transported back to the trip I took to Greece in my early 20s, because I bought a nutmeg scented perfume while I was there. Dior’s Poison will forever be the scent I associate with my mother, all dolled up in a big 80s way for a night out on the town. Maison Margiela’s Replica fragrance line is designed to invoke long buried memories so I was hooked as soon as I learned about their perfumes. Welcome to my Maison Margiela Replica review!

Poutine and Prada Nest Fragrances Indigo

Empty products review: Indigo – Nest Fragrances

First up in this empty products review post is a perfume, which is pretty rare for me. Perfume tends to last ages! I picked up Indigo by Nest a few years ago and I adore it. It is one of my signatures scents and reminds me of a big bowl of freshly picked raspberries. It’s slightly sweet but there are definitely green notes in it as well.

From the Sephora website:

Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and black cardamom are enhanced with hints of wild fig and bergamot. These notes combine to create a captivating fragrance that transitions well from day to evening.

Would I buy it again? Most definitely, in fact I already have a fresh bottle! Actually, therein lies a funny story. Mr. P&P was in Toronto last year and popped into Sephora to pick up a little treat for yours truly. He sniffed several perfumes until he stumbled upon this one. He loved it and picked up a bottle. When he gave it to me I started laughing, because of the hundreds of perfumes that Sephora carries he’d managed to pick one of my favourites that I’ve been wearing for years! That’s a man who pays attention! Read more
