Clinique Bonus Gift

Time to stock up on Clinique products! Spend $31 or more at The Bay and receive a 7-piece gift. This promotion ends Feb.21, 2015.

This is when I buy Clinique’s Even Better Makeup. What I love about this product: It’s light but offers great coverage. It matches my skin tone better than any other product. Has an SPF 15. It’s $33, but when you purchase it during the Clinique promotion (Spring or Fall) it’s a good deal.

I do like the Fall promotion make-up bags better. I find the Spring promo bags to be a little stiff.501_CLINIQUE_GWP_EN


Rudolph Fresh Face Mask by Lush


I am absolutely loving this fresh face mask!

It even comes with a red jelly ‘nose’ for you to pop on while you’re wearing the mask! Now that’s fun!

“Soothes red noses

If you spend your winter outdoors in the frosty air, bring your skin in from the cold with Rudolph! This limited edition Fresh Face Mask soothes and softens dry, irritated skin with nourishing ingredients like calamine, lavender and oatmeal, while fresh mint and cucumber revitalize and replenish skin’s radiance.” –

I have combination skin that can be reactive. This face mask is calming, soothing and hydrated. My skin feel firm and supple after I use this mask.

This is what I do

  1. I use the Lush Full of Grace moisturizing bar and massage the product into my face and neck
  2. I apply the fresh face mask, adding a little water if needed
  3. Relax and wait about 5 minutes
  4. Scrub the mask of in the shower

Too bad it is only around ’till Christmas.

I picked up two of these. I love the Clinique Bonus Events. These typically run in the Fall and in the Spring at The Bay & Sears.

My favourite foundation is Clinique Redness Solutions or Clinique Even Better (in shade 02). They both feel weightless and have very good natural looking coverage.

The cost at the Bay is $34.00 add on the free gift and I’ve gotten ‘good bang for my buck’.

Repairwear Laser Focus Eye, 7mL
New Repairwear Laser Focus, 15mL

My favourite Aveda Products

There are many reasons I love Aveda products: the smell, the ingredients, the quality etc.
What is most noteworthy is the mission statement of Aveda:

Aveda, who partners with salon and spa professionals around the world, sees beauty as a craft, not as a product result. Aveda beauty professionals are unique in the industry for their pursuit of a higher art: helping make their clients not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful. This selfless quest to bring out the beauty in their client through genuine care, differs from beauty industry norms.

Empowered by its unique Mission, Aveda believes that authentic beauty is one that works in harmony with the greater web of life. It does not qualify as beauty if it hurts any of the diverse life forms that the best beauty artist of all, Nature, created. Authentic Beauty cares for the environment which we inherited from elders and will leave to generations that follow us. Beauty cares for the society in which we live, enhancing harmony in the way we live and interact with one another as human beings. In order to be Beauty, it also needs to be Good. Beauty is the result, but also the process followed in pursuing that result.

Said simply, Beauty Is As Beauty Does.

-Dominique Conseil, President
