Top Ten Beauty Winners For 2012

Top Ten Beauty Winners For 2012

Grace Kelly Marlon Brando Oscars

Wow – is it already almost 2013? Funny, I don’t feel a year older….It’s a good time to look back on my most favourite and beloved beauty finds of 2012. Note that I am not numbering my choices, as they are all equally loved and important. So, in no official order, here they are:

Emergen-C Vitamin Powder: this may not seem on the surface to be a beauty item, but beauty isn’t just skin deep! Emergen-C provides hydration from the inside out. So, if you’ve had too many coffees, not enough water, brutal central heating or desert climate, you need this. Bonus: kills colds & hangovers. Get it. I always have a little packet in my purse for hydration emergencies. Neat fact: this company  also has a touching connection to the troops.

Skinceuticals Skincare: Most notably  the Skinceuticals serums – they are exceptional. I am so grateful for having discovered this line of skincare. The serums are gorgeous and sink into the skin- you can feel them working. My faves are Skinceuticals Blemish & Age (no pimples are safe with this!) and the Retexturizing Activator  (review to come). Do yourself a favour & search out this line. Aging and/or oily skin is conquered. Honorable Mention: Skinceuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50 – the only facial sunscreen you will ever need, protects your skin while making it look all glowy & gorgeous.

Vichy ProEven Dark Spot Corrector: Unless you have the perfect skin of a child, you also need this miraculous lotion. It evens out skin tone like it’s nobody’s business. I’ve recommended it to many people who have told me they use less concealer than they used to. Vichy ProEven can also help correct sun damage and uneven pigmentation caused by hormones. Get it.

Charlotte Ronson Closer Finishing Powder: Instant matte skin in a brush, this container/brush mattefying powder is a must-have for every make up bag. It’s a sheer powder that is dispensed through the brush. Got shine? It’s unscented and so far has proven non irritating and non-comedogenic. Can’t be without it.

Aroma M Camellia Hair Oil: Basically the perfect conditioning and softening hair oil. Forget silicones and silicone concoctions masquerading as hair oil *cough* Moroccan Oil *cough*. Silicone may improve the appearance of your hair…for awhile. But the reality is it just coats your hair. Camellia Oil smooths and softens your hair- it never feels heavy or greasy (unless you use too much) and a tiny amount goes a long way. My hair has never been in better condition. If you’ve tried everything but nothing is working, clarify the junk out of your hair and get Aroma M Camellia Hair Oil.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks: Plain and simple love. These softening balm- lipstick hybrids are basically perfect. Chose your shade- I love several, from the soft Royalieu, to the perfect “your lips but better” Boy, to the sassy hot pink Bonheur. They can all be applied without a mirror, they never look thick cakey or “lipsticky” and they leave your lips soft and kissable.

Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain: The review for this miraculous product will be posted shortly. Honestly- the best lip stain I’ve ever  used. I have the bright pink shade, Flush, and although it is bright, it isn’t exactly  light either. It provides a gorgeous healthy bitten-just-kissed-for-an-hour lip tone. Used with a matte balm, like La Mer or Chanel, it looks softly gorgeous. With a gloss like Lip Fusion Clear or a sheer pink like Bobbi Brown Popsicle, this stain always works. It feels soft and invisible on the lip, doesn’t bleed and is not drying.

Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: Another Hourglass bit of genius. Again, the review for this is upcoming. I will say this much: this concealer is very close to the famous/famously expensive Cle de Peau Concealer. A replacement? Not sure yet, but it’s pretty darn amazing. Stay tuned.

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish in Malice: Honestly, just one of the most beautiful vampy shimmer colours that exists in nail polish. The most subtle shimmer, that only Chanel can do, and the perfect tone of crimson/burgundy. It wears very well too, with chip wear only after several days. I will always love this.

ICON India 24k Richly Exotic Mask: If you have dry, coarse, processed, fried or damaged hair, you need this stuff. It is miraculous and transforms your hair from dead to devastatingly gorgeous. It is my number one deep conditioner, tied for first place with L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Conditioner. Cheating a little as I haven’t reviewed that one either yet. So much good reading to look forward to, people! Both of these conditioners smell incredible. The ICON smells like spicy woods, and the L’Occitane like almond candy. Divine.

What are some of your Top Products you discovered in 2012?

Jean Naté After Bath Splash: Energizing Delicious Goodness

Jean Naté After Bath Splash: Energizing Delicious Goodness

jean naté after bath splash bottle

Jean Naté After Bath Splash is another terrific product from my youth that seems to have disappeared from Canadian drugstores. Happily, it is everywhere in the US! At $10 for a huge bottle, how could I not get it? I used to love the splash, the spray cologne and even the powder. It was the perfect hot summer day solution- post bath or shower, you just pour some from the gigantic 15oz bottle into your  hands and literally splash it all over your body, head to toe. I suppose “lemony” is the predominant “note” in Jean Naté but it is surprisingly complex without being complicated or “challenging”. It is, after all, meant to be cooling and calming post bathing. And it is. It is actually so soft that by the time you’ve dressed and had a coffee (or crawled into bed- I love Jean Naté at the end of the day…) you are left with just a delicious smelling skin scent that won’t interfere with any perfume you feel like wearing. But, I’d forgotten about the subtle yumminess that is left behind on the skin after the lemony engergizing burst wafts away. There is a soft sweetness and I swear, last night I kept smelling my arms and I was sure I smelled a green mossy base of some kind. A dry oakmoss-y scent that smells, well, kind of expensive.

Jean Naté is in the Diorella, Ô de Lancome, Eau Sauvage, Eau de Rochas and even 4711 citrus eau de cologne vibe – European citrus with an unmistakably American perfumery clean musk vibe. I love musks and I love the way a soft clean musk makes me feel. Add a little bit of lavender and a sweetness from vanilla or tonka for a soft sexy vibe. I used it after my shower and then wore some Guerlain Jicky eau de parfum, and the citrus and lavender from Jicky were a perfect foil for the whisper of Jean Naté left on my skin. And, by whisper, I mean, someone would have to bury their nose in your skin to detect it. If Jean Naté is anything, it’s soft and inoffensive. I may even detect a slightly powdery scent, but just barely. It kind of manages to be all things at once, while being super soft and perfect.


A free caftan? Seriously, why don’t companies do this anymore??


Oh, such clever advertising.

Maybe it’s the nostalgic throwback to the perfumes of my youth that makes me love these kinds of scents so much? Hm, I don’t think so, because Jean Naté actually smells good. There is, of course, alcohol, which is what gives that “cooling” feeling, but there is some aloe and glycerin there too so it actually feels soft and silky on the skin as well. Yummy.



Short Post. Miraculous Product. La Roche Posay Cicaplast

Short Post. Miraculous Product. La Roche Posay Cicaplast

la roche posay cicaplast

I have mentioned La Roche Posay Cicaplast in passing, which isn’t really fair. It is a miraculous product I can’t be without and deserves a solid mention. Cicaplast was created to deal with several different skin irritations like dry patches, chapped skin, and skin that is tender and healing post-dermatological procedures like peels and resurfacing. I use it for skin injuries- most recently my daughter badly sliced her foot on a broken OPI nail polish bottle (beware!) and we have been using Cicaplast to speed healing, reduce scarring and relieve the itching that comes with healing skin. The thing I use it for most often though is healing acne blemishes that have been picked  ruptured. A sore pimple is bad enough and can take ages to heal. Once it scabs up it becomes almost impossible to camouflage with concealer, and may even have dry flaky skin around it due to any drying acne treatments one may have used. Well, Cicaplast to the rescue. I use this nightly on healing acne pimples to speed up the process and see a dramatic difference in healing time. It is soothing and comforting and easy to apply thanks to it’s silky smooth texture. Cicaplast also makes a perfect “primer” for a healing pimple before applying concealer. It creates a soft smooth canvas as well as soothing the poor spot.

Here is what La Roche Posay says about Cicaplast – which is concise and to the point.

Cicaplast accelerates reconstruction of the skin barrier thanks to a formula that combines:
– A copper/zinc/manganese mineral complex to stimulate the production of new cells,
– Madecassoside to encourage proper cell organisation and procure fast, high-quality epidermal repair,
– Its insulating texture is enriched in anti-bacterial agents to protect the skin. Invisible and non sticky, with easy spreading. This soothing, moisturizing treatment relieves itchiness and tight sensations.
Paraben-free formula.

I get La Roche Posay at my drugstore for under $20- a tube used on spots and injuries will last ages. Like, so far I’ve had it a year and it’s not finished yet. Verdict? A must-have.

ICON India 24k Richly Exotic Masque – Silky Hair That Shines Like Gold

ICON India 24k Richly Exotic Masque – Silky Hair That Shines Like Gold

photo 1-2

As you know, I seriously love the India line from ICON hair products. The India Shampoo cleans my hair beautifully without drying it out, and the India Conditioner makes my hair silky and manageable without weighing it down. ICON India has made it’s way into Holy Grail Hair Prodz Status in my arsenal, and I can’t imagine being without it. But with winter dryness and wanting to use heated styling products, long chemically treated hair sometimes a deep conditioner is required. I am still using and loving my Aroma M Camellia Hair Oil but I’ve added another hair product to my must-haves. The ICON India 24k Richly Exotic Masque is gorgeous and rich and has actual gold dust in it.  I swear it makes my hair so soft and silky and also so shiny! I stopped my salon yesterday and made everyone touch my hair, I’m so in love with this stuff! My stylist agrees that my hair is super soft and shiny, and she should know!

ICON India 24k Masque

Note the shimmery gold flecks – spatula included.

From the ICON site:

Change hair’s inner core with pure gold micro-bursts and microscopic mixers. Restorative Moringa, Argan, Amber oils are joined by Coconut and Olive Fruit Tree oils to hydrate, nourish, strengthen.

Daly Beauty Icon India 24k Masque

All I did was shampoo as I normally would, comb through the ICON India 24k Richly Exotic Masque, twist up my hair & tuck it into a plastic shower cap while I do the rest of my shower routine, 5 ish minutes, then rinse. Ta-da! Gorgeous silky touchable hair. Verdict? Will never be without it.

The ICON Indai 24k Richly Exotic Mask is around $40. ICON products are available at select salons. I got mine at Salon Ravello

Goody Quik Style – The Magic Comb

Goody Quik Style – The Magic Comb

A comb that removes up to 20% of the water from your hair? Come on. How could anything even do that? My hair holds onto water like crazy after shampooing. Rubbing one’s hair with towels is never good, it can damage the hair and will make it super frizzy. So I squeeze it out and twist it in a towel. In warmer weather I use a cotton t-shirt (amazing for reducing frizz) and my general rule is the less one “does” to their hair when it’s wet, the better. If I plan to blow dry my hair, I will use a wide tooth comb and brush to smooth it out before drying, and I usually comb or brush it before styling to distribute leave-in conditioner and hair oil. But – a comb that “removes water”? Bring it on – I will try anything in the name of beauty!

goody quik style comb

So it’s just a comb. A hard plastic comb (ie not bendy or flexible) with a handy hook on the edge for hanging in the shower. Goody says ” the ultra smooth water wicking blade and 2 rows of offset teeth work together to remove 20% of water as you detangle”. I always have a wide tooth comb in the shower for my conditioner – seriously, you aren’t applying it properly if you aren’t combing it throughout your hair. So the first time I used the Goody Quik Style Comb,  I apply my ICON India Healing Spray leave in treatment, combed it through with a normal comb, then did a thorough combing with the Goody Quik Style Comb. Then I left it as I moisturized my skin head to toe. I went back to style my hair and noticed immediately that the hair near my scalp was absolutely drier than usual. As a matter of fact that is the hair that takes the longest to dry usually. But my whole head felt lighter (hello- less water!) and my hair was almost fluffy. Since then I have used it every time, because I don’t have time to wait forever for my hair to dry, and, when I blow dry it, this makes the whole process that much faster. Seriously. It’s one of those products I feel like I will learn to depend upon.

I told my daughter and hair twin, Biddy, that she should try it and that it would make her hair dry quicker. She was completely skeptical, which is understandable because I usually crow about a new beauty product every day. Well, she loves it too and can’t believe that it actually speeds up the drying process. If I blow dry my hair, I like to let it air dry as much as possible to a) save my arms b) not burn out my hairdryer and c) not fry my hair. With the Goody Quik Style Comb I can honestly say my hair drying time is cut in half. True story.

Goody products are available at some drugstores, Walmart and select retailers. The Goody Quik Style Comb is under $10.

When I Wear Prada L’Eau Ambrée I Could Devour Myself

When I Wear Prada L’Eau Ambrée I Could Devour Myself

Prada L’Eau Ambrée is one of those quietly elegant perfumes that manages to please everyone while being unique, and also flying under the Latest Perfume Everyone Is Wearing radar. It’s categorised as an Oriental Floral, but I’d call it a warm skin scent. Yeah yeah, there are floral notes. And the spicy notes that are generally considered oriental notes. But they are truly a “L’Eau”, or, if you will, a water. This is no YSL Opium (which I love btw) nor is it an big floral. There are gentle fruit notes on the top that serve to soften and sweeten all the notes to come – the only floral note listed is rose, and well, I suppose I can pick out a drop of that, but I also get a hint of jasmine or maybe gardenia. But only a hint. Prada L’Eau Ambrée is more like a silky velvety musk with some sexy smoky notes. Not campfire smoke, more like a soft incense. That could be the patchouli, but again, no hippy patchouli oil here. There is definitely some vanilla which rounds everything out and just makes it yummy. It seems to melt into your skin and become part of you. It is very easy to wear – soft and sexy at the same time. I find just when I think it’s faded from my skin and I can’t smell it anymore, a whisper of perfume wafts from my skin. The mysterious coming and going of Prada L’Eau Ambrée is one of the addictive qualities of this perfume. If you are intrigued by the perfume thus far, I can almost guarantee you will love it.

Prada L'Eau Ambrée ad

And of course, there is the amber. It’s not the dry or powdery amber that I usually associate with an amber perfume. Not that I don’t like that scent – I love it, and I am a big fan of L’Artisan Parfumeur Ambre, although sometimes it is a little more amber than I want. Note- in perfume when you read amber, it is not the amber resin you see in jewellery, although that has been used as an incense type of product many years ago. The amber in perfume is thought to be a loose reference to the Arabic word “ambar”, meaning ambergris. Now amber is used mostly to describe warm, musky scents that may have rich or honeyed aspects, as well as those in the oriental fragrance category. It is an earthy scent and be a synthetic or created using natural resins, most often that resin is labdanum and/or benzoin. I’m not sure what Prada cooked up in their perfume labs to make amber smell so mouth watering, but it is quite amazing.

This is what happens when you wear Prada L'Eau Ambrée

This is what happens when you wear Prada L’Eau Ambrée

This is one that is definitely a must to try on skin, as it smells like amber soap on a paper blotter. Pro Tip: sampling perfume based solely on how it smells on a paper blotter is like buying food based only on how it smells. The most important part of the sensory experience is when it touches you, either by taste or the way it “cooks” on your skin. My most favourite description of this perfume, and the one that had me obsessed with trying and wanting it, comes from the wild and wonderful perfume writer & historian, Octavian Coifan. He is a European writer (check out his blog here) and even though things can be lost in translation when he writes, some things are simply poetic. Octavian said of Prada L’Eau Ambrée “It doesn’t smell [of] perfume, it smells like a human presence”. And I will leave it at that.

Prada L’Eau Ambrée is available at department stores and select beauty boutiques. In Canada Murale and Shoppers Drug Mart carry it as well. A 50ml bottle is around $95. If you are savvy, you may be able to find it online for less.

Smell Like The Future: Robert Piguet Futur Perfume

Smell Like The Future: Robert Piguet Futur Perfume

Robert Piguet Futur is one of their original fragrances, originally released in the 60s.  At some point it was discontinued, likely due in part to the 60+ ingredients in the original version. Yesterday’s Perfumes has an enchanting review of the vintage formula. It’s been re-released and reworked with published notes of  bergamot, neroli, violet, jasmine, ylang, vetiver, cedar, patchouli. This perfume makes me think of the sounds of brilliantly discordant jazz. It seems haphazard but somehow it works and is strangely beautiful.

Futur is a “green” scent, and true to a good green perfume, I smell a ton of forest and resinous galbanum. It’s not listed as an ingredient but that may just be because by today’s perfume note listing standards, it’s more about advertising than actually listing the “notes”. My first impression of Futur is neon Irish Spring soap in a field of wildflowers. The floral notes just sing, in a gorgeous classical perfume way. I get an impression of floral/green classics like Joy, Ma Griffe, a hint of Miss Dior (original) and even a bit of Guerlain Chamade. The fresh florals give way to sexy jasmine and ylang and then become smoky vetiver. It’s like a ghost of classic perfumes with a crisp clean modern perfume built around it. It is clean and sexy at the same time – the sexy has something to with the woodsy patchouli base. It’s almost like an incense with that intoxicating smoky resinous goodness. I feel engergized when I wear Futur, and like I can do anything. Futur can go from jeans to the boardroom to a night out on the town. I love it, and wish I could try the parfum/extrait version – it must be so dense and gorgeous. The chewy mouth watering green-ness of Futur is addictive. I huff my wrists when I wear it.

Verdict is love, but I would caution buying this without sniffing. It’s not for the faint of heart, even though in the end it dries down to a sexy skin scent that smells like heaven to me. It’s not easy to love, and it doesn’t have the mass appeal of, say, Pink Sugar. If you are willing to step outside of the average perfume box and smell special, you should sniff it out. Also – if you like Irish Spring. Manly, yes, but I like it too….


Robert Piguet perfumes are available at specialty department stores, listed here on their website. And at The Perfume Shoppe in Canada. I don’t see Futur on their site but perhaps they can order it in. Ogilvy in Montreal carries the line as well.

Daly Skincare Love: Eucerin Lip & Hand Care Must-Haves

Daly Skincare Love: Eucerin Lip & Hand Care Must-Haves

Suzy Chapstick never has chapped lips

As you know, dear readers, I am always looking out for you and looking for ways to keep your skin soft and moisturized. Lips, too, need special care, what with all the mistletoe action at this time of year (note: keep Tic Tacs in purse). Eucerin, long known and loved for its cult moisturiser, Aquaphor, the petrolatum based miracle worker. If you have severely chapped or dry skin, you need Aquaphor. But back to our everyday needs and Eucerin.

Eucerin Intensive Lip Balm is amazing when you need a little more than just a moisturizing product. This repairs and nourishes beautifully with glycerin, shea butter, evening primrose oil, panthenol and lactic acid in a petrolatum base. Before you freak out about petrolatum, remember that it is the main ingredient in Kiehls Lip Balm, (and Carmex, Blistex etc etc) one of the best lip balms on the market. Why? Because nothing holds moisture in better. Ok back to Eucerin Intensive Lip Balm – I love the addition of lactic acid. It is terrific for dry flaky lips for two reasons: the lactic acid molecule works to pull moisture into the cells of our skin, and exfoliates surface cells which helps to perfect the skin’s surface and restore a natural glow, as well as improve absorption of topical treatments. The Eucerin Lip Balm is pretty much fragrance and taste free as well, which is a plus for me. I can smell Carmex lip balm from across the room, let alone on my own lips. Verdict? Love. For around $5 you can’t do better than this.

Eucerin Repair Hand Creme with 5% Urea is meant for intense help with dry, cracked hands, and even for eczema. It feels like silk going on, soaks in beautifully while leaving your hands amazingly soft and smooth. It feels so good and rich you feel like your hands would be greasy and sticky after applying it, but that’s not the case at all. I like to rub it in around my cuticles and fingernails as they seem to suffer the most at this time of year. It is fragrance free which is important in my hand creams. I like my perfume in my perfume and a strong hand cream can take away from that. Eucerin Repair Hand Creme promises improved skin condition over time, so I will watch to see how that pans out. So far I have been using it at bedtime and after having my hands in hot water and am very happy with the way it works. No dry cracked skin on the backs of my hands means it’s working. Verdict? Love. A 75 ml tube is around $10, and a little goes a long way.

Eucerin products are available at drugstores and Walmart.

Givenchy Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum, The “Fatal Flower”

Givenchy Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum, The “Fatal Flower”


Givenchy released Dahlia Noir eau de parfum in 2011, and the eau de toilette this year. I think the edp version is the richer and headier of the two, and absolutely perfect for cooler weather. It’s classified as a ” floral chypre” but I take issue with calling a perfume that has no oakmoss a chypre. However I would agree that Dahlia Noir edp is as sexy as a chypre – it makes me think of a modern version of a beauty like Ungaro Diva, one of my favourite rose chypres, or a scent like L’Arte di Gucci, and even a softer Paloma Picasso. It has been tamed and softened, and the first things you sniff are citrus, pepper and mimosa which are quite a yummy combination. Rose, iris and patchouli in the heart and finally a sultry woodsy vanilla base. Wow. The words that come to mind when I sniff Dahlia Noir edp are creamy, a bit moutwatering, sexy and pretty. The sexy is balanced by the pretty and I can see this as being the perfect perfume to dress up or dress down, as it’s the kind of scent that works with the skin of the wearer. Lovely. And, did you know Givenchy has a Dahlia Noir candle? It’s available for sale on their site for $56. I’m not sure if this is at any perfume counters, but you could ask. What a great holiday gift idea!
