Canadians! What is your fave celeb hairstyle + Matrix Shampoo and Conditioner giveaway

Have you thought about your Valentine's Day hairstyle? 

If someone told me I could pick any hairstyle I wanted... 
I will probably pick Lana Del Ray's side swept curls with a flower crown. 

I know it's a little bit extravagant but it's so pretty. 
Since I would probably be using a lot of heat to keep the curls, It's good to use a heat protectant. 
I would start with Matrix Total Results Heat Resist line: Shampoo & Conditioner.

This year for Valentine's Day Matrix has five different Total Results together forever sets which include a shampoo and conditioner. Just in time for you to get ready for your big night out! Each set is sold for $16.00 CAN and can be found at select salons.

Do you want one for yourself?

Need volume? Have damage? Frizz getting you down?
Matrix is gifting two Canadian readers the appropriate together forever set for their hair.

Battle Winter: Face, Hands and Feet + Huge Giveaway USA & Canada

In the winter, I often find that people forget to take care of their hands and feet. It's always important to make sure that my hands and feet are always ready!

You never know when impromptu vacation happens.

I was contacted by Skinall Distributions awhile back. I was given two things to try: Kocostar 5 Finger Nail Pack($17.95 CAN for 5 packs) and the Foot Peeling Pack ($9.95 CAN). My first time trying it, I did a girls night. 
I had no idea what to expect!

The Kocostar 5 Finger Nail Pack was amazing because in the winter I find that I get a lot of hang nails. It's very annoying and hate when they rip down into your skin. I easily slipped on my fingers into each pocket with no mess. I was able to type while they were on without them falling off. After the 30 mins, I felt like my cuticles were softer and my nails looked hydrated.

For me, the Kocostar Foot Peeling Pack was a little tricky for the first time. You had to keep it on for 90 minutes to get the full effect. I'm the type of person who likes to move around A LOT!  If you decide to try them, put them on before a home movie night. 90 minutes will go by and you won't even know.

On the packaging, it states it takes 3 to 4 days for your feet "your dead skin and callus will start to peel off". Guess what?..  Mine took around 9 to 10 days to fully come off. The after was extremely soft feet. Smoother than a trip to the nail salon.

I also received a really cute pink pore brush as an extra. I usually go for the motorized version but it's good to have something with you in case you run out of batteries/your devices run out of power. I like using it with my favourite foaming cleanser- in circular motions.

Canadian- Hawaiian Tropic Giveaway + Win a $50 Visa gift card!

The long weekend is coming! I see a lot of sun and BBQ's in my forecast. As a darker skin woman, I still know that sunscreen is needed. Overall it's important to cover all exposed parts of skin on your body regardless of your skin tone.

If you read my past Hawaiian Tropic® post, you would know that I love the Silk Hydration sunscreen line! The swirls are very moisturizing, it's non-greasy and I love the fact that it has shea butter in it.

Now they have a Silk Hydration™ After Sun moisturizer ($9.99 CAN)! First thing I noticed is how good it smells! It's infused with mango and shea butter plus it has aloe which is very cooling. After spending a long day in the sun nothing is better than applying an after sun moisturizer like this!

My Schick Hydro Silk razor experience

I know you all have seen posts on this Schick Hydro Silk razor popping up everywhere. I have put this baby through a two week trial and I'm ready to share my experience with you!

Let me start out with my shaving story. I wasn't blessed like my mother to have hairless legs.. YES.. you heard me hairless legs. I've tried everything from electric razors to nair because I could never get the hang of razors.

Lugging big cans of shaving cream to the tub is not my idea of a good time. Nothing is worst than getting there and finding out the can is empty!

I wish I had something like the Schick Hydro Silk razor when I was growing up!
Razor Breakdown
  • Water- activated serum
  • Five curve- sensing blades
  • Sleek and fashionable handle
  • Easy removal head
  • Great grip
This was one of the most comfortable shaves that I have EVER had! The fact that I received a close shave with no irritation on numerous occasions is amazing. I really feel like the ease of the shave had to do with the water- activated serum. For some odd reason I thought the serum was suppose to be on the side. The fact that it was built in to the head and continued to "flow" through out my shaves was great. I also liked the fact that the razor came with an extra head.

Overall I recommend this razor and I will continue to use it.
