Hello Beauty Babes! Long Time no blog, but I'm back at it again, and this time I want to share one of my all time favourite HOLY GRAIL Winter Skincare must haves with you! If you haven't already heard of Drunk Elephant, well then girl you better stop what your doing right now, and hit up your local Sephora! Your skin will thank you for it. Drunk Elephant's main goal is to deliver top of the line, affordable products that get the job done, formulated only with ingredients that benefit our skin. This brand focuses on eliminating hazards and toxins, as well as innocent sounding natural fragrances that are irritants and allergic sensitizers.The Drunk Elephant line is currently made up of 19 products, with a long list in the development stages. This line has taken off standing true to their motto that "less is in fact more". One of their current best selling products is their Nightly Glycolic Serum, to which my heart remains near and dear to! I just recently picked up this beauty from Sephora upon recommendation, and I must say it is indeed a game changer! After only one application, I was hooked. Upon waking up in the morning my skin seemed to be completely changed. I woke up to the most radiant glowing complexion, and my skin seemed to appear almost flawless! It was smooth, and soft, even my overall complexion seemed to have evened out! This was only after one single use! after seeing such instant results, I couldn't help but to rave about this product to all my friends and family, and now YOU GUYS! 


WHAT IT IS:

A 12% AHA/BHA night serum that helps refine and resurface skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant looking complexion. T.L.C. Framboos™ enhances the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption.

WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:

This high-tech gel resurfaces dull skin, gently lifting dead skin cells away by dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface. The results are greater clarity and a smoother, more even looking complexion. Formulated with our dream team AHA/BHA blend including Glycolic, Lactic, Tartaric, Citric and Salicylic acids and blended with raspberry extract, T.L.C. Framboos™ sinks in easily and delivers effective and precise chemical exfoliation without the harsh side effects like dryness or sensitization. Horse chestnut and white tea help to soothe. Fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration along with excess oiliness and pores will appear dramatically diminished. Go from a drab complexion to an absolutely luminous one, practically overnight!

WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW:

AHAs can be sensitizing if not formulated properly. We added soothing plant extracts and formulated T.L.C. Framboos™ at the ideal pH level of 3.8-4.0, which we believe is the key to an effective formulation.

CONSUMER TESTING RESULTS:

98% found skin was smoother
96% found skin was softer
93% found skin felt retexturized and refined
93% found skin had a healthy, radiant glow
91% found skin looked more even-toned, brighter and luminous
*in an independent consumer testing panel of 50 women ages 25 to 55

DRUNK ELEPHANT DIFFERENCE:

Drunk Elephant is committed to using only clean ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of our formulations. We never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on biocompatibility. You won’t find what we call the “Suspicious 6” in our products (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Screens, Fragrance/Dyes and SLS,) making them appropriate for every skin type. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue. When formulating the products, we focus on pH and safety, always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.

SUGGESTED USAGE:

At night, apply to a clean, dry face, neck, chest and backs of hands, avoiding the eye area. Mix with D.E. Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil for maximum effectiveness. Note: Very slight tingling may be experienced, particularly for the first few days of application. This typically dissipates as your skin becomes adjusted. Start slowly. Use the product every other night, alternating with D.E. Virgin Marula Oil as necessary. WARNING: Use only as directed. Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs and consult a doctor. Use a sunscreen daily while using this product. 






Beauty Babes! Beauty Infused here, coming at you with yet another review! On today's agenda, my holy grail concealer! Tarte Shape Tape has had my heart upon trying it for the very first time! I must say it has been quite the hunt, going through countless concealers that never truly had me hooked. Prior to having tried this concealer I was using M.A.C pro-longwear which I must admit is a classic, I would use it under my eyes, as well as to define my brows! However, it would crease throughout the day, as much of a fan as I was of the formula, it just wasn't doing it for me. I had seen this tarte concealer being blasted all over social media, and was intrigued. Initially I had thought wow, you are getting an incredible amount of product for the price point! After having watched countless reviews, I noticed that the formula looked very heavy, and would inevitably crease on me! so I decided it wouldn't be a product for me. After a couple months, the hype of this product still hadn't died down, and i thought to myself, is this really that amazing? So I bit the bullet, and purchased two shades online, due to the fact that I was not able to get my hands on it anywhere in store! It appeared as though my only option was to order it online, and so I did! I was highly impressed with the shipping time, as well as the overall presentation of my package! * I am quite the sucker for nice packaging* ... Anyways, I sat down almost immediately and put this baby on! and let me tell you, it was love at first sight! The formula was rich and creamy, and glided on like a dream, as heavy as the formulation felt, it applied beautifully and my under eye area felt hydrated and nourished! Upon first application, I was impressed, however the true test was going to be how it looked by the end of the day! I set my under eye concealer using Laura mercier translucent setting powder and a damp beauty blender and went on my way! After having spend the entire day running errands, I couldn't help but notice my concealer had not budged, nor creased in the slightest! Since that day I have been using this concealer non stop, and have since purchased it in 4 more shades for my freelance kit! Also, I have been loving it for highlighting and contouring using the lightest and darkest shades within the range! I highly recommend this product, it would be suitable for all skin types, and tones due to their amazing formulation and wide shade range! Let me know if any of you guys have tried this product, and if so what your thoughts are! Till next time Beauty Babes! XO

Beauty Babes, Beauty Infused here coming at you, with yet another product review! On today's agenda... Sugarbearhair Hair Vitamins! These have been seen popping up all over social media. Celebrities such as, Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens and many more have been seen raving about these hair vitamins! Initially I thought, congrats on the sponsorship. Sugarbearhair really lucked out with this one, due to their eye catching design and well thought out marketing. After having seen these posts popping up everywhere, I started to become more and more intrigued. The packaging is definitely what had suckered me into my purchase, I must admit. Well, I bit the bullet, and placed my first order with this company. It took next to no time to receive my package, and upon receiving it  I was already impressed with their speedy shipping process. When I got home, I opened my package and instantly a smile came over me. The box was nothing short of well thought out and eye-catching, and the way they had presented their products was impeccable. I had purchased the 3 month kit from their website, and everything was very neatly displayed in the box  including 3 containers filled to the brim with these adorable blue teddy bears, a nice wooden brush, a hair tie, and some adorable stickers. Let's be honest everyone, no matter what age, or who you are, we all get excited about getting stickers! am i right?! I decided to go right in, open up my first container and try these bad boys out! upon my initial taste test, I was confused. I had to pick up the bottle again and make sure this wasn't some sorcery. I thought I was eating candy, thats  how amazing these tasted! I thought to myself, how in the world are these vitamins?! At that point I was contemplating on going in, and just finishing them all that night. Knowing I couldn't do that, I soon realized that I was only going to be lucky enough to have two a day! Let me tell you, due to the highly addicting taste, I was not forgetting to take my vitamins, I can assure you that much! I had finished off my 3 month supply within no time, and I must admit as each month passed I couldn't help but notice how amazing my hear not only felt, but looked. Other around me, were noticing too! My hair was growing beyond belief, and felt so healthy and nourished! I am someone who has such tremendous trouble growing out her hair, however upon adding these into my daily routine, I can now safely say that my hair does GROW! I highly recommend trying these out, if you haven't already, I can assure you, you won't be disappointed. After having tried these out for myself, I now understand what all the hype is about, and well, cheers to me hyping them up even more. Thank you Sugar Bear Hair, your product has been the ultimate game changer!

Hey Beauty Babes, Beauty Infused here coming at you with yet another review. I have decided to start a little mini series here on my blog called "The Ultimate Crystal Guide" where every couple of weeks I will be discussing different crystals with you, their benefits, and how using them in my everyday routine has impacted my life in some way, shape, or form. There is such a thing called crystal therapy, and let me tell you, you would be surprised and intrigued how this can help bring the body, mind, and emotions back into alignment.First and foremost I would like to share with you the concept of crystal healing, and what it can do for you! Firstly crystal healing uses the vibrations of crystals to heal, each crystal has a natural healing vibration as well as colour. These unique healing vibrations are introduced to your body and energy field to vitalism, to heal, and to balance it. Crystals use the natural minerals of the earth, each and every individual crystal has a unique life force or energy within. 


HOW DOES CRYSTAL HEALING WORK?

Imagine your body is like an orchestra. In an orchestra, each section needs to be kept 'in tune', so that the sound quality is optimum. If an instrument is 'out of tune', it affects the sound of the whole orchestra.Just like an orchestra, your body, mind and emotions need to be kept 'in tune', so that they are functioning at their optimum. If a body part or your emotions or mind become 'out of tune' with stress or illness it affects all of you. Crystal healing helps to get things back 'in tune' again. Each crystal has a specific 'tune' or resonance, which acts like a 'tuning fork' bringing body, mind and emotions back into alignment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRYSTAL HEALING?

Crystal healing is a holistic treatment: it works on all levels of a person. As crystals conduct light and colour, they naturally bring a 'lightness' into your being. Everyone's experience is individual, though you may experience any of these effects physically. 



relief from aches and pains, more energy, a de-toxification, restful sleep

mentally -


relief from stress, calmness, clarity, more focus

emotionally -


a release of "old" emotions, a sense of well being, balance

spiritually -

a "lightness" of being, more connectedness, more purpose


First on our list, is AMETHYST! 

Amethyst crystals are generally one of the first gems people are attracted to when beginning their crystal healing journey. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise since amethyst healing properties have been valued for thousands of years. As early as 25,000 B.C, the Neolithic people in Europe and the ancient Egyptians prized it for its beauty and legendary energies. Greek and Roman societies also placed high value on the Amethyst healing powers. It has long been considered a gemstone of royalty, being used in the crowns, scepters and rings of bishops.  Amethyst is said to have been the ninth stone in the breastplate of the high priest of Israel, and one of the ten stones upon which the names of the tribes of Israel were engraved. With all this rich history, there must be a reason so many different ancient civilizations harnessed the properties of Amethyst.

AMETHYST HEALING PROPERTIES

Meditate with Amethyst: Amethyst crystals are exceptional for providing spiritual protection, inner strength and clarity of mind, making them a classic meditation tool. Meditating with them can help you to become more in tune with your feelings, helping you to get to know yourself on a much deeper level. It also stimulates the crown chakra and calms your thoughts, making it a powerful aid in meditation.

Relieve Stress and Relax: Amethyst healing properties also include acting as a natural form of stress relief. This crystal attracts positive energy while ridding your body of any negative emotions—feelings of stress, anxiety, fear, depression and more. The healing properties of Amethyst help to clear your body’s energy field of all negative energies and influences, acting as an energetic shield that creates a bubble of spiritual light around your body.

Place Amethyst in your home: Aside from what they can do for your body, amethyst crystals are one of the most beneficial stones to have in your environment. Due to this, many people fill their homes with them—in their bedroom, living room, bathroom, car, office, meditation room etc.—so that the amethyst healing properties constantly surround and protect them. These crystals work to purify any space of negative vibrations, emanating an energy ideal for you to thrive in. They help to clear the mind of unnecessary thoughts and clutter. On a physical level, having amethyst crystals in your home is believed to help strengthen the immune system and heal any imbalances that lie in the body.
Amethyst clusters and Amethyst geodes carry the strongest power to rid your home of negative energy, making them the best ones to fill your home with. These crystals can be placed on your fireplace or your altar—somewhere central in your house, so that the amethyst healing properties can radiate to every room. They also make wonderful additions to a child’s room because of their gentle and soothing energy. Amethyst crystals are even thought to help people who have trouble falling asleep. Placing an Amethyst cluster in your business is thought to attract abundance and bring new opportunities walking through the door.
Personally for me I have insomnia, and getting to sleep has always been a struggle for me. The first time I had purchased a chunk of Amethyst I had placed it under my pillow in the hopes that it would help me in falling asleep. After a couple of restless night, I though boy was I ever wrong. I couldn't understand how so many people have confided in this method and how many people preached about crystal therapy, and there I was thinking how is this not working for me ? Well, let me tell you, I quickly learned that the placement of your crystals plays a huge role as well! Turns out I had it too close to me, after having done some research as well as having spoken to a couple people at my local crystal shop I was advised to simply try moving the crystal to a different location! And Voila! Upon having done so, I noticed an immense difference in less than no time! Words from the wise, if something doesn't work the first time, doesn't mean it won't work or it's not for you, you simply have to give it some time, and I'm sure something great will come your way.

Beauty Babes, Beauty Infused here coming at you with yet another review! Today I want to discuss how getting a pink Himalayan salt lamp could actually be extremely beneficial to your every day life. I've been using a salt lamp for a few years now, and I must admit it, it really is life changing. 

WHAT IS A HIMALAYAN SALT LAMP?

Salt Lamps or HPS ( Himalayan Pink Salt) lamps are essentially large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. Himalayan salt lamps are made from pure, food grade, Himalayan salt crystals and can even be powdered to use as salt in recipes if needed."

HOW DOES A SALT LAMP WORK?

As a Himalayan salt lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, it also takes positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapour back into the air, it ansi expels negative ions which have the opposite effect on our airways- increasing filial activity to keep your lungs clear."

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? 

  • Increases blood flow
  • Improves your mood
  • Improves breathing
  • Reduces Stress
  • Increases energy levels
  • Reduces asthma symptoms
  • Boosts Serotonin levels
  • Improves sleeping 


ARE SALT LAMPS SAFE TO LEAVE ON?

The more you leave your Himalayan Salt Lamp on, the greater air ionizing and purifying effect it will have. Once the salt lamp warms up, it provides maximum ionizing benefits. Himalayan Salt Lamps utilize low wattage bulb and do not draw a great deal of electricity. They are generally safe to leave on at all times."

SALT LAMP DIFFUSER?

Put a few drops of your favourite essential oils or combinations of oils onto your salt lamp. The gentle heat from the lamp will diffuse these oils safely.

Personally, I purchased my Pink Himalayan Salt lamp at my local Homesense, and it has been one of the best investments I have ever made. I struggle from insomnia on a regular basis, and since having bough my salt lamp, Iv'e noticed an immense difference. The light thats emitted from the lamp is very calming, so it helps me relax, and reduces my anxiety. I'm one of those lucky individuals who can not seem to shut their brains off at night. Im constantly thinking. Having used this lamp I noticed that I am now able to fall asleep within a reasonable amount of time, and stay asleep! You can really sense the energy coming through the light. Most nights, I will leave my lamp on throughout the entire night, as I usually fall asleep with it on. The light is nothing overpowering so you are still resting in almost complete and utter darkness. My lamp is usually situated next to my bedside, however you can ultimately place it wherever your heart desires. Upon wakening the lamp itself doesn't feel overheated, or anything of that sort by any means, it's actually very safe to leave on for long periods of time! I highly recommend that you go and find yourselves a Pink Himalayan Salt lamp, and enjoy the many benefits that come along with having one by your side! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment down below, till next time beauty babes. XO 



 
 

Beauty Babes, Beauty Infused here, coming at you with yet another review! Im' pretty sure we can all relate to those times where we were in extreme discomfort due to having dry chapped lips! It's never any fun dealing with chapped lips, not only does it feel uncomfortable, we can forget applying any lip products at this point too! Personally for me, it doesn't matter what time of the year, its inevitable, at some point my lips dry out as if I were laying out in the dessert sun for months on end. After having constantly experienced such discomfort I told myself, this must come to an end! and so it did! I finally decided to give my lips some TLC, and here's how you can too! In just six easy steps, transform your lips, and give yourself the perfect lip you've  been looking for! 

STEP 1 : PROTECT THEM FROM DAMAGE

You know you need to wear sunscreen on your face to ward off skin damage, but are you treating your lips with equal care? The skin on your lips is especially sensitive, so without daily sun protection, you may experience burning, cracking and discolouration. Keep a lip balm with SPF protection on you at all times, and apply it before you head outdoors. Personally my favourite is the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Nourishing Lip balm with SPF 20. If you haven't already found one that you love, this is definitely worth checking out! 

STEP 2: EXFOLIATE REGULARLY

To get the softest, most kissable lips, you have to slough off old, dead skin cells that will make your lips feel rough. Don't slather your body exfoliator on your lips, though! Pick up a lip scrub designed specifically for your pucker, and use it a few times each week. I really enjoy either making my own lip scrub, however some of my favourite lip scrubs are: LUSH, MAC, as well as the new dior lip exfoliator, which is a lot more gentle in comparison to the others I had mentioned. Some of you might prefer, a harsher or gentler lip scrub, just know there are so many options out there! In addition, for those of you interested in how I make my own at home lip scrub leave me a comment down below! Last but not least I usually keep a toothbrush on hand specifically dedicated to my lips. I use this method almost every morning upon waking up, to help gently exfoliate any accumulated dead skin cells! 

STEP 3:  MASK AS A TASK 

Mask as a task, your probably curious as to what I mean by that! Well beauty babes, most of us don't usually invest the time into properly taking care of ourselves. I'm basically saying, set aside a certain amount of time each day for you! whether that be reading a favourite book of yours, or going on a walk, or simply waking up and doing some morning meditation. Set aside time for you, incorporate some time into your daily routine to apply a mask all over the lips, to provide your lips with some extra comfort and hydration. Personally I love the bite beauty lip masks! 


STEP 4:  HYDRATE DAILY

Now this is something I simply cannot stress enough! Hydration is key when taking proper care of your lips! Some of my favourite products to use are: Dior "creme de rose" lip balm, particularly as a treatment while I sleep, Bite Beauty's new "agave" lip balm, as well as Dior's Lip Glow during the daytime! Not only does it hydrate, it also leave the lips with a soft pink sheen! 

STEP 5: LEAVE TIME TO PRIME

Most of us typically wear lipstick, lip stains, or liquid lipsticks throughout the day, so primer is a must! These lip products can really dehydrate our lips, or even leave harsh residue upon removal! Which is why priming the lips prior to application is so important. Not only will a primer nourish the lips and create a barrier between your lips and product of choice, it will also ensure the longevity of your lip product of choice! My all time favourite lip primer is the Guerlain " kiss kiss lip lift". I have gone through countless tubes of this product, and will continue to repurchase and recommend this as it is indeed one of my holy grail products! 


STEP 6:  ADD A POP OF SHINE 

Last but not least, add a pop of shine to your lips! Personally the perfect lip for me consists of lip primer, lipstick, and then a pop of gloss positioned near the centre of my lips to add the illusion of having fuller looking lips! Sometimes I even just use lipliner, fill in my entire lip area, and then add a touch of gloss. Having that layer of gloss overtop really adds the finishing touch to your look, and makes the lips look luscious! Personally, my favourite glosses of all time are the Marc Jacobs High Shine lip glosses! My favourite shade being Moon-glow  however they have a wide variety of shade ranges to chose from, you really can't go wrong! 

Here's a little bit of info on my all time fave's ...

What it is: 


A high-shine lip gloss in covetable shades with lasting brilliance. 



What it does: 



Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer lip gloss delivers maximum color and brilliance with its unique Triple Shine Complex, a blend of high-performance ingredients that provide unstoppable wear and shine like "30 coats of lacquer." The brilliant shine contributes to an optical plumping look. And, Enamored feels cushiony on the lips, never sticky. This mint-scented lip gloss collection features a profusion of creamy pinks, shimmering lavenders, and iridescent brights that give lips a lush look with lasting color and unbelievable shine. 



What it is formulated WITHOUT: 



- Parabens 
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 



What else you need to know: 



The shade names are inspired by Marc Jacobs's favorite music. This product is a two-time Allure Best of Beauty award winner.



Well Beauty Babes, that's it for this one, I hope you enjoyed, and try out some of my methods listed above! Leave me a comment down below, letting me know what your lip essentials are! Xo

Beauty Babes! Beauty Infused here, bringing you yet another review! Today I am going to be talking about how I achieve my hair goals, and what the process for going grey looks like. First and foremost, I leave my hair colour to the professionals, I have finally found myself an impeccable stylist, after years and years of searching, and much trial and error. Walking out of the salon, was usually a constant dissapointment. After constantly being on the hunt for the next best stylist, I was lucky enough to find "the one". I came upon her page browsing through Instagram  and oddly enough realized that a couple of my close friends had heard of her too! Upon looking at her work, I was mesmerized! I knew I instantly wanted to book with her! I must say, this one is quite the busy bee, she 
informed me that she typically books 4-8 weeks in advance, and let me tell you, after having spent the last 4.5 hours with her doing what she does best, I understand why! 
Typically I have an album of Pinterest hair inspo's all done up prior to my hair appointments, however I can not count the numerous times Iv'e walked out of salons with the complete opposite. This time was different, I got exactly what I wanted! That picture perfect pinterest post worthy hair! I'm telling you, if your from Ottawa, your going to want to check her out! and if your not, I guarantee the trip down here will be worth your while.

Beauty Babes, Beauty Infused here coming at you with yet another product review! At first I was quite hesitant to try this product due to the large price tag attached to it. The first time I had ever heard of this product was by youtube sensation Jamie Genevieve, who absolutely swore by this stuff! At that point I was rather intrigued, I would find myself at my local Sephora every now and then, examining this product, yet always hesitating to bite the bullet and purchase it for myself. I figured it was just a basic moisturizer, what difference could it really make in my skin? It's not like its a miracle in a Jar... or so I thought.. After much contemplation, I finally decided I would see what all the hype was about! Upon using this product for the very first time, I was overwhelmed by how decadent and amazing the formulation was! The scent lingered on my skin for hours on end post application. I have very dry skin, and this absorbed like a dream, and smoothed over beautifully leaving my skin feeling and looking soft and nourished. After several applications, I started to notice a difference in the overall appearance of my skin! We all have our stubborn areas, however they didn't seem as much of a concern to me anymore after having used this product consistently. I noticed that my skin was starting to smooth out, and that it overall felt tighter, and more radiant! Everyone experiences products differently, however personally, in my case this product was indeed a game changer! I use this stuff religiously now, and I would definitely see myself repurchasing this on an regular basis! That being said, my final verdict... Go out and get yourself some Brazilian BUM BUM Cream ladies, you won't be disappointed, neither will your booty. Till next time beauty babes, xo

The fragrance’s intricate harmony opens on captivatingly fresh notes of bergamot, before developing into a heart of tiaré flower and ylang ylang. One of Guerlain’s emblematic ingredients, ylang ylang infuses scents with its warmth. Its sweet, sensual signature finally reveals a delicious vanilla-tinged dry-down. 

As a 30th anniversary tribute to Terracotta, and for the very first time, Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance – a sun-soaked invitation to explore faraway lands. 

"I simply adore this as a summer fragrance, not only does the bottle warm my heart with its warm toned colour scheme, it also lasts beautifully on the skin". A must have for Summer 2017 in my opinion.
