GUEST POST: Three Gym routines that you should start doing in 2018

Get it right and get it tight! 2018 is your year to step up your fitness game. If you're new to the gym, or if you're an avid gym attendee check out my 3 suggested gym routines you should start doing in 2018! For more fitness routines and for some fitness motivation be sure to follow my instagram account @simplyeseeri. Now let's workout!

Dermablend Professional is now in Canada!

As a makeup artist, one product which I would see in a lot of kits was Dermablend. I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive launch of Dermablend in Canada! Starting on October 8th, they are now sold exclusively in drugstores.

If you don't know anything about them please know that they're the #1 Dermatologist recommended camouflage brand in the US. Also known for their high pigment content and blendability.

They have been around for over 35 years changing lives by addressing all skin concerns:
  • redness
  • dark circles
  • uneven complexion
  • vitiligo
  • rosacea
  • tattoos
  • scars
  • acne

Even if you don't have any of these issues. This is for anyone who desires full coverage. Brides who have a problem with their makeup running would really benefit from using this product. The line features a good range of powders, foundations and concealers. FYI I'm in one of darkest shades in the line- Cinnamon.  Not sure if this is for you? Think about it this way.. It's dermatologist tested, allergy tested, sensitive skin tested, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic and fragrance-free. 
In other words.. you need to get your hands on this ASAP!

Birchbox Monthly Subscription box is Available in Canada!

Beauty boxes are making a comeback! 
Just in time for the holidays.
One of the original beauty box makers is coming  to Canada.

Believe it or not I did not know the FULL hype of Birchbox (originated in 2010) until I went on vacation. I had my Birchbox beach bag and a lady came up to me and asked me if I worked for them. After I said no, she begin to rave about the box. She told me that she had a friend in New York who would order a box for her and send it to her in Canada. She nearly did a cart wheel on the beach when I told her the boxes can now be ordered from Canada.

Let me give you the low down on Birchbox: it's a platform that helps you find the best in beauty and lifestyle products. There is a online shop component and also the option of getting a monthly subscription. 

If you choose to subscription option, each month you will get five beauty samples shipped right to your door. The products can range from skincare, perfume or maybe even nail polish. If you find something that you truly love in the box.... Guess what? You can get the full-size version of the sample you got in their online shop.

I should also add that every box comes with a card which details the price of the full-size sample and also gives you a description on what the product is and also how to use it.
Canadians if you're interested in trying out Birchbox you can go to to try out your first box.

Get Summer Ready: Hair Removal & Foot Care

If you're in Canada ignore the cold right now. Summer is coming! It's a little late but it's better to be prepared ahead of time. I know that you can go to the salon to get all the above done but what about the times when your too busy or strapped for cash. You do it on your own! 

Check out these products to help you look fab this summer!

First up is foot care!
This is one of the most commonly ignored parts of the body. No you can not slap on some polish on the toes and call it a day! What about your heels?!?!

Nothing makes more queasy than seeing crusty heels. Yes I said it! I'm being honest. If you can't make it to the salon regularly try Spongeables Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer Lavender and Tea Tree Oil ($7.99 CAN).
A new patent-pending technology foam-release system with aromatherapy, Pedi-Scrub is a unique blend of glycerin, olive oil, shea butter, tea tree extract with lavender aromatherapy infused into a double sided sponge to exfoliate, smooth and relax your tired feet. Your feet will never feel the same again! Guaranteed for 15+ washes!
To hydrate your heels try Flexitol Heel Magic ($14.99 CAN)!
Flexitol Heel Magic is an innovative new way to hydrate dry, cracked heels and feet. This easy to use, no mess stick format contains a unique blend of emollients and moisturizers including Urea, Shea Butter, Lanolin and Olive Oil in a highly concentrated moisturizing base.
Now on to hair removal!
Hello tank tops! Underarm hair removal is pretty easy with this VEET Underarm Hair Removal Kit.
I love the fact that it's not messy. Apply/remove it with a spatula then apply the gentle finishing cream after.
VEET’s Hair Removal Cream leaves skin feeling smooth and silky-soft for up to one week with no risk of nicks and cuts.
Get rid of that upper lip hair! Try VEET Precision Wax & Care ($16.99 CAN).
Waxing scares me but I can take it in small doses. The cream contains aloe vera which is soothing for your upper lip.
Specially developed for facial hair removal, the easy-to-use tube lets you apply a precise amount of wax exactly where you need it – eyebrows, upper lip, and chin.Pamper your skin afterwards with our Aftercare Cream enriched with Aloe Vera. The result – your skin will be left feeling not just smooth but moisturised too.

If you're a good ole fashioned girl who likes to shave. Try the EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream ($3.99 CAN)! I personally prefer this nozzle over the typical shaving cream nozzles. Also this formula is not foaming- so it's rich and a little bit goes a long way.
Rich, non-foaming eos shave cream is packed with natural conditioning oils, shea butter and antioxidant vitamins E and C to provide 24 hours of ultra-soothing moisture. It’s so moisturizing, you can shave wet or dry. Plus, it’s enriched with skin protectants to help prevent nicks and razor bumps.
Ladies, I hope this posts helps.
Please let me know if you would like me to do more!

Go Green for Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day ladies!
Did you know it's one the most celebrated environmental event worldwide?

We all have to do our part to sustain the environment. I remember when I use to hear the words like vegan and organic and I thought that meant boring! That's totally not the case now a days. These products have come a long way. You might not even notice but some of the products that you use daily may be fit into one of these categories!

Check out some "green" products that I've tried and are adding to my wish list.

SpaRitual polishes ($12.75 CAN)
Vegan polish brand dedicated to the spa tradition. Vegan ingredients from around the world are used to create this high quality line. This includes organic plant essences and naturally colored formulations free of synthetic dyes.
You would never have known these polishes were vegan. I've tried them in the past and loved the pigmentaton and overall quality of the polishes. Plus they always come out with cool collections that would rival any other brand.

EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew ($3.50 CAN)
Delight your lips with the irresistible flavor of fresh honeydew and with moisture that keeps your lips feeling soft and smooth all day long.
I love the way these balms feel on the lips. Plus they are small enough to fit into your make up bag.

Matrix Biolage (Various prices I have seen are around $26.00 CAN)
One of the star ranges from Biolage is Matrix Biolage Delicate Care, a powerful fade-fighting range that is gentle, sulfate-free, and helps prolong hair's colour vibrancy. Free of silicones, parabens and mineral oil, this fade-fighting formula has a fair-trade complex of acai berry and conditioning argan oil, as well as a UV filter that leaves hair manageable.
I've switched all my shampoos to sulphate-free last year. My scalp is in a much better condition after doing so. This product is on my wish list!

Weleda Skin Food ($21.00 CAN)
Intensely hydrates and cares for the skin. Ultra-moisturizing, pure Lanolin and anti-blemish, organic Pansy nourishes and soothes dry and damaged skin. A precious essential oil blend of lavender, rosemary and sweet orange oil refresh the skin and the senses.
I'm obsessed with anything that involves lavender! Another product on my wish list!

Lush Green FUN mouldable soap ($6.95 for 250g)*
A citrus burst of tangy lime and lemon essential oils that will make you feel refreshed and focused. FUN is a solid, 4-in-1 multi-purpose, mouldable soap-- for your body, hair, bubble bath and fun.
Another great vegan product that I was excited to try out. This is the perfect bar to bring on vacay because it has various uses. For sensitive skin users it has a softening base of corn flour, talc and glycerine. You have got to love a product that you can pronounce all the ingredients!
