When’s the last time that a wild beauty invention got you excited? For me, new innovations that have a bit of a tech angle to them really interest me; I love seeing how expensive treatments can be transformed into something that people like you and I can use at home without having to worry about the hefty price tag. The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is one of those.

Neutrogena recently came out with this futuristic, Tron-esque mask that has been designed to help prevent acne and breakouts before they start. As I’m sure you’re aware, the brand has been around for years and is definitely known for their skincare line that helps to prevent and treat breakouts, so a product like this only makes sense.

Light therapy isn’t anything new; dermatologists have been using this form of therapy for years in order to help treat those with acne and breakouts. These treatments are great but they can get pretty costly and are a little out of reach for many of us. Add in the time that it takes to go in for these and it’s definitely a bit of a hassle. Neutrogena has managed to take this type of skin therapy and they’ve turned it into some accessible for everyone and made for every day use, which means you can see results pretty quickly!

The mask uses light science to treat the entire face at once, in ten minute periods, to help prevent breakouts at the start. It’s gentle enough to be used daily, and actually gives you a bit of a reason to take a few minutes out of your day to relax – throw the mask on and read a book or watch one of your favourite shows (Fuller House season 3 dropped yesterday ;)). The mask uses both red and blue light technology to make sure that multiple areas are covered. The red light is used to reduce inflammation of the skin and redness while the blue light helps to target and deal with the bacteria that causes acne in the first place. The mask is great for people who experience breakouts in many sections throughout the face since it is used all over! I’ve been using it for about a month know and have actually noticed that my breakouts have been fewer than normal and definitely lighter than before.

The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is really quick and easy to use too. The mask itself can be used over and over and comes with an activator which lasts through 30 treatments – a month’s worth if you use it every day. When you’ve finished with it, you can recycle the activator by sending it in (you can generate a pre-paid shipping label to use here).

What’s the last beauty tech innovation that you were excited about?

While I’m reluctant to admit that fall is here (even though we finally have summer weather in Toronto), today’s the first day of the new season and I can’t deny it any more. I’m a summer lover but I’ll admit that I’m a big fan of fall colours and the entertaining opportunities that come with this new season. I’ve pulled together a few of my Thanksgiving entertaining & fall decor must haves to give you a little inspiration as we head into autumn. Oh, and if you’re looking for fashion inspo I have you covered!

Yes, of course, fall totally means pumpkin spice. If you’re a big fan, you’ll definitely need some cute pillows that show off your affinity for everything PSL-related.

For me, one of the most fun things about fall is the candles that start rolling out. I absolutely love candles and find that they’re such an easy way to transform your home. I can’t wait to get my hand on these Old Factory candles – this set comes with three candles scented like pumpkin spice, cranberry and autumn leaves.

This year I’m going to be cooking the turkey for my family’s dinner and of course I have presentation on my mind. I love this super appropriate platter and serving fork from Mud Pie, and the platter can totally be repurposed afterwards!

I’m always one for a good photo booth and these adorable props would make for a great one at a Thanksgiving party. Throw them in a basket and add an Instax Mini camera for the perfect setup.

When it comes to Thanksgiving entertaining, the drinks you serve are as important as the food. Moscow Mules are perfect for a fun, easy cocktail and these copper mugs are exactly what you need to serve them in.

In my head, there are a few things that make a get together successful, and cheese is one of them (just ask my friends Jenelle and Sandra). Of course, if you’re going to be serving cheese up you need a great platter to do so on; this bamboo serving tray looks great and hides serving utensils in a sneaky drawer for easy use.

Light up your party and humble abode with these pretty string lights decorated with fall leaves. They provide a really nice touch running up the banister and I think would make a pretty centrepiece down a long table!

Finally, greet your guests with a taste of fall right at the front door. A pretty fall themed wreath is an easy way to decorate – sometimes keeping it simple and light with your decor is all you need.

 

What other suggestions do you have for Thanksgiving entertaining & fall decor?

Another day, another lipstick. And I’m not even close to being done yet. Today we’re sticking to drugstore (and affordable) lippies with the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks. Available in 24 shades and ringing it at $10 CAD each, these are a fantastic option for adding some new colours to your repertoire for the fall.

I have all but 2 of the shades and couldn’t wait to dive in and swatch them for you so you can find your next pick!

These lipsticks are throwing it back to the OG lipsticks, going vintage and focusing on a creamy feel and bold colour payoff. These lipsticks dry to a velvety, almost matte finish that feels surprisingly light on the lips. I clock wear time at about 4-5 hours before you will need to reapply, and you will experience some transfer with these.

 

If you’re looking for colour, the NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks are definitely what you’re going to want to get your hands on this season. The payoff is incredible, with extremely bold, opaque colour. Be careful with application, because with such strong colour you’re going to want to be really precise. I would suggest starting with a liner for perfect full coverage. Anyways, the pigmentation on these is pretty incredible, and with 24 different shades to choose from I have no doubt you’ll be able to find something to suit most of your needs. There are quite a few nude and deep shades, as well as a few classic reds and pinks to round the selection off. Also, fair warning, some of the deeper shades – heck, most of the shades – do have a bit of a stain to them.

And now… On to the swatches, because I know that’s what you’re really here for.

A few standout shades for me include Bombshell (which is a gorgeous magenta), Cocktail Hour (a killer red with a bit of shimmer that might just come in handy for my Halloween costume) and Darling (a pretty nude pink which is great for daily wear). What shades are you interested in?
