Review: OGX x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Disco Party Theme Collection*

OGX is a brand of hair care products that I have been using for a while now, and you can read more about my past reviews here. Recently, they have collaborated with the famous YouTuber Nicole Guerriero to launch three limited edition scents - Mistletoe Wishes, Midnight Kisses and Ice Berry Queen in both shampoo and conditioners. Being both a fan of OGX products as well as Nicole Guerriero, I knew I had to try these ones too!

Review & Giveaway: Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert*

While I frequently write about makeup and skincare products, lets not forget about body maintenance products as well - specifically ones to help keep things you know, tidy! Veet has recently released a new beauty styler product, called the Sensitive Precision Expert - which is now the #1 women's electric trimmer in Canada. It is actually an improvement to their first model, and is designed to help trim and precisely shape the hair on your delicate body parts - face/eyebrows, bikini and underarms without the fear of being nicked or cut.  

This trimmer can be used as is, or wet as it is waterproof! It retails for $29.96 (MSRP), and can be found at most Canadian retailers like Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart and Amazon.

The product comes neatly housed in this a plastic container and bag as you see above, and it comes with the trimmer gadget itself as well as 7 separate accessories. I really appreciate brands who take the time to think of the little things that go the extra mile for me, in this case, the pouch. I can easily just toss everything in the bag and store it in my washroom drawer.

While there are instructions in the product packaging itself, one thing I found helpful was the labelled comb attachments. The ones you see below - 2mm and 4mm are horizontal attachments to help you achieve a uniform hair trim. I would recommend this one for the bikini area. The one on the far left, is a comb attachment that gives you two different lengths in ONE attachment itself - more so aimed for the eyebrow. Again it is set at 2mm and 4mm.

One other great thing is that this trimmer only requires ONE battery - yay! and is very easy to use, just align the arrow together at the base of the unit, and twist shut. Also, there is a little brush to help you clean the razor.

The razor itself has a pivoting heat, which means you can adjust it to whichever angle is best for you to take care of the area you need - I know this was beneficial when trimming the brow area as you might not want it straight, but at an angle. One thing I would recommend is to set it at 4mm first, so you can see how you like it. You can always go shorter, but you can't reverse any mistakes if it is cut too short!

Now for the fun part - a GIVEAWAY! One of you lucky readers will be able to win one of these! To enter, simply fill out the ballot below. I am going to make this a quick one, just so that you can hopefully get this before Christmas, so I will pick a winner Friday night!

2. Giveaway is open to Canadian Residents Only!

Goodluck everyone!

Holiday 2018 Gift Guide - All About the Lips*

The Holiday Season is here and one of the things I get asked most is what should I get for so and so, at this or that price point. What I started doing, were gift guides - and instead of bulking everything together into one guide, I thought it would be best to do separate ones for different categories so that .I can break things down into different price points as well. If you're interested in seeing what recommendations I would make for lip products, then keep on reading below!
