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?

Oh winter – between the cold, frosty weather (which we have yet to be hit with in Toronto) and the craziness of the holidays, it’s definitely time to amp up your beauty routine! Of course, this means a combination of finding the perfect holiday beauty matches, taking care of your skin and hair, and treating yourself a little!

I wanted to share some of my favourite P&G Beauty United items to get me through the season – they all fit perfectly into my routine and let me feel my best throughout the holidays:

  • Olay Luscious Embrace Cleansing Bodywash in Luscious Orchid – This cleansing body wash, containing jojoba butter and crushed orchid extract, helps to hydrates while it cleanses, adding some much-needed moisture to my thirsty, thirsty skin. Oh, and it smells divine.
  • COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Red Rogue – I’m ALL about the red lip for the holidays – the bolder the better! And of course, if it doesn’t last long, it’s just not going to work… especially during holiday parties! This gorgeous red is packed with colour, moisturizing (no one wants a flaky red) and has a great, long-lasting wear.
  • Pantene Airspray – When I’m constantly heat styling my hair through the holidays, the last thing I need is to dry my hair out even further, which is why I’m so happy Pantene’s new hairspray is alcohol free! IT avoids the crunchy, stiff feel that often comes with hairspray, and leaves my hair with flexible, touchable hold.
  • Olay Regerist Luminous Facial Oil – Not so breaking news: my skin likes to dry right out during the winter. A combination of nine enriched natural oils helps to keep my skin hydrated and glowing, without looking greasy.
  • COVERGIRL Eye Shadows Quad in Go For The Golds – I love a good dose of shimmer & sparkle during the holidays (well, really, all year around… it’s just easier to pack it on this time of year) and this beautiful quad helps me to highlight & add a healthy dose to my lids!
  • Crest White® Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit – It’s no secret that the holidays mean plenty of photos, which means plenty of smiling… Which means teeth have gotta be ready to go! These white strips promise professional results and use FlexFit technology for better fit on your teeth.

Ugh.  There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning only to realize that you turned off your alarm, overslept, and now have precious little time to get yourself ready and out the door.  I know we’ve all been there and it’s never fun.  I’m not one to run out the door looking like I just rolled out of bed, so I put together my 5 minute face using some great P&G Beauty products (Olay, Herbal Essences & CoverGirl!).  When I say 5 minutes, I mean it – I timed myself while I threw this quick look on and made it through before the buzzer went!

Let’s start with the face.  I like to wake myself up by giving my skin a quick wash in the morning, and the Olay Fresh Effects {Out of this Swirled} Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub is the perfect wake up call.  It had gentle exfoliating beads to help get rid of any dry skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean.  I like to follow this up with Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer to hydrate and get my skin prepped, then give my eyes a boost with Olay Fresh Effects {Bright on Schedule} Eye Awakening Cream – the “metal ball” applicator is cool and soothing and really helps to de-puff tired eyes.  I actually noticed a difference right away (hint: to make this even better, keep it in the fridge for a real cooling feeling).

As for quick makeup on the go, I like to start off with Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizing Cream.  It’s lightweight, helps to even out skintone for a brighter look and masks minor imperfections.  I like to add a little colour, so I added some CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Ginger Flame to my lids and Crystal Flame to the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up.  I also added a little liner using CoverGirl Ink It! in Black Ink before throwing on a couple of coats some CoverGirl Clump Crush Mascara (one of my absolute favourite mascaras).  Finally, I added a little moisture and shine to my lips with CoverGirl Lipsticks Smoochies Lip Balm in #BeSweet.

For speedy hair, I find it’s easiest to throw it up in a quick bun.  I try to shower the night before when I know I’m going to be up early and spritz on some Herbal Essences Honey I’m Strong Silkening Spray to keep my locks feeling soft when I wake up.  Give it a quick twist and pin it up, spray it with some Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Tousling Hairspray to keep it in place, and you’re good to go!

Do you ever find yourself in a hurry and needing a quick solution?  Enter to win a pack full of all the P&G goodies you need to get yourself out the door:

  • Olay Fresh Effects {Out of this Swirled} Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub
  • Olay Fresh Effects {Bright on Schedule} Eye Awakening Cream

Well, it’s music festival season again.  We certainly have no shortage of them (think Osheaga, Digital Dreams, NXNE), and I know that one of the things that immediately pops into my head during this time is festival beauty!  This is the perfect chance to have a little fun with your look and to play with a little colour.  Throughout May and June I’m going to be taking part in the P&G Beauty Turn It Up challenges where myself and other Beauty United bloggers will be creating different themed looks – what better place to start than with festival beauty?

I had a ton of fun Herbal Essences, COVERGIRL and Olay Fresh Effects products to play with to help me create the perfect festival look.  I started off by applying Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} to give my skin an even base.  This stuff feels great on the skin and even helps to add a kick of moisture, and then I threw some COVERGIRL TruMagic Sunkisser on to give me a bit of a glow (I’m the queen of SPF and my pale skin needs a bit of a boost sometimes!).  For the eyes, I decided to rock a swipe of COVERGIRL Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus in Aquamarine Ink for a fun little pop of colour (I also added some black Ink It! liner underneath for a bit more drama) before adding COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara for big, bold lashes.  I finished off the look with some COVERGIRL LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Blush Twist for a tiny hint of a pink glow on the lips.

As for the hair, I think festival hair is all about being carefree.  I like to add some wave, because when I’m out there dancing to my favourite artists in the sun I know my mane is going to have a mind of its own. I let my hair air dry before curling random pieces with my flat iron, then zapped it with Herbal Essences Naked Shine Sheer Shine Mist and Herbal Essences Naked Volume Flexible Hold Spritzer  for some extra shine and lightweight hold.  Side note: Have you smelled the Naked line yet? Holy moly, this stuff smells fantastic.  I feel like I don’t even need to spritz on perfume when I’m using it!  I also threw on a flower crown, because naturally you can’t have a music festival without a few flower crowns added in along the way!
