Let’s face it; life can be pretty unpredictable and when you’re constantly on the go it can get pretty difficult to take a little time to yourself. Since getting back from Costa Rica a week ago my life has been crazy – I’ve barely been home and have had so much on the go. My skin definitely took a bit of a beating between the flight home and a bit of hectic work and I knew I was going to have a hard time giving it the time that it needs. Luckily for me, AVEENO recently came out with a couple of products that really helped to nurse it back to health.
A facial isn’t always in the cards for all of us – between the associated costs and taking the time out of our schedules to actually go in and get it done, it’s not necessarily the most feasible thing. I can’t remember the last time I had one, but these new products from AVEENO have given me a chance to reap the benefits of one without the time commitment. The Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial and Overnight Hydrating Facial are both super easy to add to your routine and beyond simple to use!
The AVEENO Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial has become a real favourite of mine. It takes, yes, 60 seconds, and works quickly to refresh the skin. It uses the steam from the shower to open the pores, allowing for deep cleansing. I like to apply it while I wash my body or shave, letting it get to work, before rubbing it in to take advantage of the exfoliation and rinsing. My skin feels really clean afterwards and never dry.
Afterwards, I love to follow this up with the Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. It feels really rich and creamy upon application; I actually apply a thick layer and let it sit on my skin for a couple of minutes to absorb as much on its own as it can before rubbing it in. It uses AVEENO’s Active Naturals Total Soy Complex to give my skin a deep level of hydration. The result? I wake up to skin that’s glowing and really refreshed, giving it most of the benefits of a facial while I sleep. Does it get any better than that?
With my life being all over the place & constantly on the go, these two products have become staples for me especially when I’m in a real rush. How else do you pamper yourself when you don’t have a lot of time?

Every now and then I love to change up my routine with some new products that make life just a little easier – or prettier. I’m always eager to see what P&G beauty has in store; with so many different brands on their roster, they’re constantly putting out new skincare, body & personal care options that I can’t wait to try out!
Today I’m sharing a few of my new favourites – have you tried any of these?
The new launch that I was most excited about this season is the Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Light. Crest has decided to take things a step further this season and have included a light that helps to increase and improve the strength of the white strips. The blue light technology they’re using is the best available over-the-counter right now. I’ve just started using these and can’t wait to see the results – white teeth for Christmas parties? Yes, please.
I’ve been loving the Gilette Venus Comfortglide Razor. I actually brought this down to Costa Rica with me because bathing suits were my every day clothing and hair legs/pits are not a good look for me. The awesome razor has been surrounded by moisture bars that containing body butter which means softer skin and a more comfortable shave.
I freaking LOVE the Pantene Pro-V 3-Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal treatment. Whenever I’m having a bad hair day, I like to through this on. It seriously only takes 3 minutes to work its magic, and afterwards, you’re left with smooth, soft and silky hair. This came in especially handy while on my trip – between the sun, the wind and the saltwater, my hair constantly needed a treat to restore itself.
Spray deodorants have never really been on my radar, but I decided to give the Secret Fresh Invisible Spray in Ooh La Lavender a try. This spray is really quick drying, long-lasting and doesn’t leave behind any white residue. It keeps me feeling fresh all day, and I really love the fresh lavender scent.
Have you given any of these a try yet?

Do you ever have those nights where you just want to climb into bed, get cozy and pass out? I will totally admit that I’m guilty of going to bed every now and then without taking my makeup off – yup, total beauty blogger faux pas. I do it. You do it. We all do it. The thing is there’s a way easier solution to the full face of makeup pass out, and it’s one that I’ve been sticking to for a while now. Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes have become a go-to for me when it comes to quick cleansing.
The wipes, which now come in many different varieties to suit your needs (more on that later), are the perfect addition to a beauty routine for someone on the go. I love how easily these wipes remove my makeup, leaving my skin feeling fresh and clean without leaving behind any residue. I’ve started keeping a package on my nightstand for easy access on those nights when I’m just too lazy to go through my nighttime routine. A few quick swipes takes everything off and I just follow up with a bit of moisturizer afterwards to prep my skin for sleep. I find that they’re really gentle on my skin, especially around my eyes – I’ve got to get all of that mascara and eyeliner off! They’re also perfect for throwing in a bag before you head out the door when you need a quick touch-up or want to freshen up after a gym visit.
They’ve also recently introduced the new Neutrogena Fragrance Free All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes which are perfect for people with sensitive skin or issues with scented products. They’re alcohol-free and have been tested by both opthamologists and dermatologists.
The wipes also come in a few other versions depending on your needs. The Hydrating version is perfect for when you’re doing a little travelling; I love using them to freshen up after a flight or long car ride and love how perfect they are for a quick update on the go. I have a pack with me on my Costa Rica trip and I find they’re perfect for beach days. The Naturals version is free of sulfates, dyes and parabens, making them extremely gentle on your skin. I love the Night Calming version for before I head off to bed – they have a really calming scent that helps me get into a calm mood before I drift off to sleep.
Do you use cleansing wipes when you’re feeling a little too lazy to take your makeup off?

If you follow me on Instagram you probably caught my visit to NYC a few months ago to check out the new Tweezerman x Huda Beauty collection. Tweezerman couldn’t have picked a better gal to collaborate with – Huda has really created a name for herself in the beauty industry, with a huge following and really successful makeup brand.
The collection features Huda’s signature lips and colours, with a pretty lip print on the two tweezers, a gorgeous red lip pouch and pretty pinks for the brow scissors & brush and 10x mirror.
Of course, the products are the same Tweezerman tools that you know and love wrapped in this pretty, limited edition packaging. I adore everything in the collection and these tweezers have become my go-to since returning from the press launch. If you’ve never tried the 10x mirror I also very highly recommend it – between this, the scissors and the tweezers you’ll be rocking some killer brows.
Available in this collection are the Slant Tweezers (black), Mini Slant Tweezers (pink), Mini Slant Tweezer & 10x Mirror set and the Beauty Kit, which contains the Slant Tweezer, Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush, 10x Mirror and the lip bag, which is the perfect all-in-one set for grooming and maintaining your brows.
Since I know you’re going to want to get your hands on these products, my friends at Tweezerman and I are giving away one Tweezerman x Huda Beauty Special Edition Beauty Kit. To enter, head to my Instagram channel and check out this picture!
