Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert

24 May

Clarins Body Fit

Hi beauties! Have you been thinking about a new fitness routine for the summer?

If you want to up your game when it comes to a firm-looking body, Clarins has a new formula that targets three types of cellulite‑producing cells called adipocytes. These cells, which love sugars and fats (boo!), can grow larger and multiply when their storage capacity is maxed out.

Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert contains a plant extract called quince leaf that helps to switch things up and enhance the fat-storing and fat-burning capabilities of the cells that form cellulite.

The formula also includes caffeine, which is well-known to target the fat removal process, and other plant extracts like horse chestnut and hazelnut oil to smooth skin.

Some of the improvements you can look for with Body Fit are less spongy-looking skin after two weeks and firmer skin after four weeks. If you’re like me and you need instant gratification, I noticed my legs felt smoother after applying the quick-absorbing cream gel just a few times.

To shift your body contouring into high gear, Body Fit also comes with a Self-Massage Body Contouring Method guide with specific massage directions to smooth your legs and thighs, reduce the look of cellulite, and refine hips, stomach, and buttocks.

Although I try to eat right and work out regularly, applying this anti-cellulite treatment in the morning and night makes me feel like I’m getting a “leg up” on healthy-looking skin this summer.

Bodycare Treats for the Summer 🌞

17 May

summer bodycare

Hi beauties!

It’s been so rainy in Vancouver this month, it’s hard to believe that summer is just around the corner.

To get a jumpstart on the hot weather, I’ve been trying out a few bodycare treats.

Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Collection

I’ve been a fan of vanilla-scented bodycare forever. I remember once at a work meeting, one of my co-workers blurted out: “I smell cookies.” Since I started to laugh, I had to confess it was my vanilla body lotion. 😆

The Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Collection features a light summer scent that combines fresh vanilla and creamy florals.

Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Moisturizing Body Wash

Whether you prefer a luxurious bath or warm shower in the summer, this body wash has an antioxidant and vitamin enriched formula that won’t dry you out:

  • For a bubble bath, drizzle the body wash under warm running water.
  • For showers, apply a small amount to hands or a sponge and lather over skin.
Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Moisturizing Body Cream

The body cream in this collection is a rich butter complex containing shea, cocoa and jojoba butters, vitamin E and aloe vera. For a reasonable price, this thick body cream provides good hydration to dry or rough areas.

Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Fragrance Mist

I like to lighten up with a fragrance mist in the summer because it’s less concentrated than perfume. The Bodycology Creamy Vanilla Fragrance Mist contains these notes:

  • Top notes: Tahitian vanilla & tiare flower
  • Middle notes: Fresh jasmine, cyclamen, and heliotrope
  • Dry notes: Amber, blonde woods, sandalwood, and cashmere musk

Lypsyl Yummy Sticks Lip Balm

Lypsyl lip balm has been around for over 100 years. Lypsyl Yummy Sticks are a fresh take on their lip balm, which most of us have used at one time or another to protect and soften dry lips.

The vegan formula in the Yummy Sticks contains shea butter and hydrogenated coconut oil for hydration. The formula is completely free of beeswax, preservatives, parabens, and palm oil. 👏

I had a chance to try out these “yummy” flavors:

  • Passion Fruit & Chocolate
  • Sea Salt & Caramel
  • Sweet Mint & Basil

You can find Bodycology Creamy Vanilla products ($6.97 each) and Lypsyl Yummy Sticks ($1.49 each) at Walmart.

NYX Cosmetics Stripped Off Micellar Water

NYX Cosmetics Stripped Off Micellar NYX Cosmetics Stripped Off Micellar Water

Hi beauties!  Is micellar water part of your skincare routine?

Since NYX Cosmetics is one of my drugstore favourites, I’m excited that the brand is getting into skincare basics with their version of micellar water.

Like other cleansing waters, the Stripped Off Micellar Water from NYX contains micelle molecules to pick up impurities and makeup from the skin.

After using this cleansing water for a few weeks to remove makeup, I’m finding that I like the refreshing feel of it on my skin better than traditional makeup removers. Compared to regular makeup removers, the NYX micellar water feels more hydrating with no oily residue.

In terms of effectiveness, it does a good job of removing every day eye, face, and lip makeup with no irritation. If you apply a lot of eyeshadow/mascara, you may have to double up on your effort to remove all traces of makeup (although, this may be true for all micellar water products).

The real plus about the NYX Stripped Off Micellar Water is that the price is right! For under $10, you get a large-sized bottle of cleansing water (400 ml or 13.5 fl. oz.). Even better, a little amount goes a long way. 💕
