Ah Choo Flu

I was at a shopping party in November and received a sample of ‘Ah Choo Flu’ from Smell This! Aromatherapy. This essential oil blend is part of their Remedy synergy collection and contains lavender, peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus (and smells divine too). As you might have already guessed from the name, this product is said to help keep those winter bugs away and with it being that time of year, we can use all the help we can get!

Arline Trividic is a certified aromatherapist and the owner of Smell This! Aromatherapy. She is dedicated to promoting and educating clients in the use of high quality essential oils and aromatherapy products. Smell This! promise that every product contains pure essential therapeutic grade oils, as well as pure and natural base oils. No chemicals or harmful preservatives are used and they deal only with ethical, environmentally conscious growers.

All of Smell This! Aromatherapy synergies are available in a 10ml bottle of pure undiluted essential oil blend $6.50 CAD or a 10ml diluted roll-on bottle $10.70 CAD.

Prime Before You Paint

NARS have just launched their brand new Makeup Primer that has an SPF of 20 and PA++.

PA stands for protection grade of UVA (tanning, darkening, aging rays). The highest level of PA is +++, this means you will not get tanned or basically will not be exposed to 99% of the UVA, so PA+++ is saying: "you will not get tanned from this and if you wear it starting when you're young you won't get any UV-induced wrinkles".

This primer is similar to the original - it is the perfect canvas for long-wearing foundation with a natural appearance. It promises to hydrate and assist in easing the signs of inflammation and redness, whilst improving skin texture.

This primer can be worn under foundation, powder or alone. I will be popping over to Holt Renfrew to see if they have this item as I'd love to try it.

$33.00USD for 1.7 Fl. Oz. 50 mL
