Beauty || Skincare Secrets Geisha Style || @Tatcha_v

TATCHA as you know has made almost every favourite beauty product list I’ve made for the past 4 years. If you are not familiar with them, their products are carried online directly through TATCHA, Sephora, Barneys New York, Spring online and goop. I love their classical approach to skincare encompassing Japanese beauty secrets passed down by generations with a less is more theme. You know what goes into the products thus you know exactly what you are putting onto your skin and into your body. If you haven’t discovered this brand I would definitely give them a try. Here are my current TATCHA go to products that will suite anyone’s beauty routine:

One Step Cleansing Oil ℅ :  I love using this residue free all in one cleaners with my Clarisonic brush at night. It completely removes all my makeup gently with no irradiation on my sensitive skin. It is one of their Best Sellers for a reason, the luxurious formula smells and feels like heaven plus it works!

Beauty || Luxury products you don’t want to miss || Skincare Confessions

Looking for splurge worthy beauty products this summer? I’ve got my latest favourites that are sure to impress. From skincare to hair styling, I’m covering all the bases my beauty junkies. Here are my Top 5!

Herbivore Lapis Oil: So many of you have been asking what facial oil I’ve been wearing this summer, it’s no surprise this luxurious oil made my list. I’ve talked about it before and we all know I’ll talk about it again. It’s quick-absorbing formula allows vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants to get into your skin without clogging pores. So many people ask if I break out when using a facial oil… No! Instead your face stops producing excess oil and finds a natural balance!

Rodial Snake Serum: For all my ladies aging gracefully this is the serum for you! It’s a perfect combo of complexion glow and skin surface smoothing. It’s like blur in a bottle … wear it at night with a moisturizer or I like to mix it into my foundation in the morning.

IGK Beach Club Texture Spray: After the perfect beach wave? It adds volume and texture to some limp hair. It has a build-able formula but I find a little goes along way.

Biotherm Skin Fitness Smoothing Treatment: Let me start by saying the ENTIRE line is amazing, it was hard for me just to pick one… but this moisture rich treatment is amazing for dry patches so I had to include it. If you have reactive skin, this gentle formula shouldn’t effect it. I’m out in the sun and elements so my skin takes a beating, this treatment is perfect for rebuilding my moisture barrier on my skin surface. My hubby loves it too!

LIERAC Paris The Supreme Mask: The premium line from this luxury beauty brand is unreal. We all know I’m a mask addict, so this all-in-one youth boosting treatment was my favourite by far. I love the smoothing effect it has on my skin after just one application. Continue reading

I’m all about taking “you” time to recharge your batteries at the end of a long day. With self care in mind, I choose my favourite Rocky Mountain Soap Co. products to help you find that Zen moment in your own bathroom. See my go-to spa like favourites from this all natural company I know and love.

The Root Beer bubble bath isn’t just for the kids. I love the scent and the extreme foaming action I get from one squeeze. This double duty bath product is a perfect addition to anyone’s tub routine big or small.

As you know I’ve joined the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. team as a beauty ambassador this year, it was an easy choice as I’ve used their products for half a decade. For me it’s important to ensure my family has safe and natural products at their disposal. Between pollution and the added chemicals in beauty products or even food, it’s an easy consumer choice to ease my mind.

I love a good leg rub after a long day of chasing the kids. Rocky Mountain’s line of massage oils are amazing. I love the Ylang Ylang but my husband, the avid jogger prefers the Sport Oil in Rosemary. If you’re looking for a non spill option, the massage butters are your best bet and smell amazing!
