LIMITED_EDITION__5272bdcb53d53_250x300Caryl Baker Face frosting-I can not STOP talking about this.  It is the highlight of highlights in my opinion.  The sparkle is finely milled and won’t leave you looking overdone.  It’s an absolute MUST for holiday parties or sparkle-worthy occasions-although I like to sparkle everyday 😉

Retails:  $29.50 CAD

A product I didn’t expect to see-a bath treat from Bath Fairy. Looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it? I don’t recommend ingesting but I do recommend tossing this into your tub for your next bath!

This just may be the gift for the beauty in your life…..if I had to pick my ‘stand-out’ product from the collection, it would definitely be the face frosting!!!

Caryl Baker Southwestern Beauty collection

Simply put, this collection reminds me of an Arizona sky and art shows  or outdoor markets that feature art with lots of turquoise and coral, influenced by the landscape.  Aztec-ish perhaps…..

This is the collection you wear with your favorite denim.  What you wear when you want to look pulled together but not overly ‘done.’ It’s fresh and up to date without being pretentious and heavy.

I adore this collection and the quality of Caryl Baker products is comparable to MAC (in my opinion).  I’ve spoken on these products in other blog posts/videos.  Another plus is that this is a Canadian brand so you are sure to have access to a boutique!  This collection is most definitely swatch worthy so be sure to take a look.

Caryl Baker Oxygen facial breathes life into my skin!

If I had won the lottery like that psychic said I would, then I would certainly have taken a chunk of my winnings and devoted to finding the fountain of youth.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a millionaire to treat your skin well!  Caryl Baker has introduced their oxygen facial and it is beyond worth it!

What Caryl Baker says about the treatment:

Indulge in a luxurious 60-minute treatment that combines the use of deeply hydrating collagen and cell boosting pure oxygen.  Fine lines and wrinkles are noticeable diminished.  Leaves your skin looking and feeling soft and rejuvenated.

My treatment was performed by the lovely Kiki and started off with a consultation.  Afterwards, I got a mini microdermabrasion then the oxygen facial commenced. My skin was thoroughly cleansed, masqued and then the oxygen was applied via airbrush. I also was treated to a hydrating collagen mask which really helped lock moisture into my skin. Afterwards, my skin felt clean and refreshed.  It looked like I had woken up from a restful slumber (which I really COULD use by the way-oh if only).

If you are anywhere near a Caryl Baker Visage, give them a call and book this treatment. It’s appropriate for all skin types and will make your skin feel AMAZING!

Stay tuned for a post with some of the items I purchased after my facial including a super duper eye cream that I swear by!

Makeup Basket Monday (and last week debrief)!

I am really starting to love these…..it should be interesting this go around. I am going to attempt to use my longwear makeup (Perfection Lumiere from Chanel). I have a very ‘varied’ basket this week-BB creams, high end foundation, asian products. Good times!
