NEW Product: Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo

Brand: Salon Grafix
Name: Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo
Size: n/a
Price: $7.99 USD

Sometimes life gets so busy and your hair NEEDS to have a wash, but you just don't have the time - ever have that experience? Well, many of us have had that at least once and the solution was to either go with limp or dirty hair (in my case, oily) or reach for the "powder" shampoos that were a quick fix to hold you over until you could find time to hop in the shower.

Now there's another option - a "spray shampoo".

From the press kit: "Ideal for all hair types and styles, Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo goes on clean and clear, with no visible powder left behind. When applied, the new invisible formula quickly absorbs the oily buildup on your scalp and neutralizes any odors, giving you a refreshed look in a fraction of the time of a traditional shampooing. By simply spraying it in your hair and brushing it out, your hair will look and feel rejuvenated. Clearly not your mother’s dry shampoo from the 70’s, Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo is currently the ONLY invisible dry shampoo available."

For those who like to travel light...or try out lots of new products...

I love to travel, but I really dislike all the new travel restrictions (although I understand the need for them, I still don't have to like it!) - especially the ones regarding liquids.

So I was really interested in a new e-commerce site,

From the press release: "Co-founders Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz wondered for years why they couldn’t find all of their favorite beauty products in travel-friendly sizes to take along on their frequent travels for both work and pleasure - so they took their combined 11 years in the beauty industry and launched to carry name brand, high end beauty, grooming and personal care items that are all 3 fl oz or less. Convenient services include international shipping, even direct to hotels, and same-day delivery within Manhattan via courier. Customers can receive an upgrade to overnight shipping for the price of ground by including a flight itinerary showing travel within three days." is perfect for those who travel frequently, or people who want smaller sizes to carry around in their regular day (gym bag, work, etc. Or, if you've ever wanted to try out a product but didn't want to buy the full-size version, this is a perfect place to satisfy your curiosity.

Items on range from $3-$110 and new brands are constantly being added. There are lots of big plans for the future too including the addition of baby products, cosmetics, travel-friendly beauty and grooming tools, and accessories.

Product Review: Lise Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : Plumpissimo Le Gloss
Size: 6.2 ml / 0.21 US fl oz
Price: $20.00 CAD

Shade Tried: Vintage Peach

Le Plumpissimo Le Gloss is one of Lise Watier's more popular products and the company recently launched 2 new shades:

- Rose: a limpid base that shimmers with tiny, glittering pink flecks
- Vintage Peach: a peach base infused with champagne-coloured micro-glitter

I'm not a fan of lip-plumping products. For one, thin lips were never an issue for me, so I was never excited when these products were first launched, plus I really don't like the tingling sensation that most of these lip-plumpers have, since most of the "lip-plumping" action is provided by ingredients that "stimulate" your lips to plump up. But, I have many friends who are always tempted to try these products, so I definitely like trying them out and letting them know what's going on. :)

To Purr About:
- gloss is light and not sticky
- lovely fruity scent
- the shimmer is incredibly
- I did notice that my lips looked a little more full immediately upon application

Claws Out:
- same, irritating tingling feeling that most other lip plumpers have
- lips weren't "irresistibly plumped"
- brush applicator is kind of thin and short

Final Comments:
As with most other lip plumpers I've tried, this one doesn't significantly plump out lips, and it does have that tingling sensation. I did love the shimmer that this product delivers. I would have preferred a thicker, longer applicator. As a lip gloss, it's lovely, but don't pay this price if you're hoping for it to deliver super-full, plump lips.

Product Review: Olay Complete Ageless Renewing UV Lotion

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Olay
Name: : Complete Ageless Renewing UV Lotion
Size: 75 ml
Price: $26.99 CAD

After the amazing results I saw from Olay's Complete Ageless cleanser, I was excited to try another product from the same line.

From Olay's website: "Olay Complete Ageless Skin Renewing UV Lotion combines nourishing all day moisture with vitamins and an anti-oxidant complex enriched with Green Tea and Ginkgo extracts to exfoliate and help promote skin's surface renewal process for healthy-looking skin."

The product is advertised to:
- Visibly reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Dermatologist tested
- Non-Comedogenic (wont clog pores)
- Oil-Free, Non-Greasy”

To Purr About:
- contains SPF 20 to protect the skin from harmful sun rays
- small and slim bottle allows for easy travel packing (with locking pump)
- did not irritate my super sensitive skin
- keeps my skin super moisturized
- absorbed quickly into my skin
- left skin looking quite radiant

Claws Out:
- smelled like it had SPF
- feels just a tad tacky/greasy during application
- similarly to other lotions with SPF, if you put on too much it will flake off

Final Comments:
I’m usually not a huge fan of moisturizers with SPF because I find they feel a bit greasy, but I really loved this product. It did smell like it had SPF, but the scent wasn’t overpowering and it left my skin looking very radiant. Best of all it helps protect my skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

I’m a bit worried about how it will fair in the hotter weather since I don’t want my skin to look too greasy, but I will see what the summer brings.

The only negative thing I have to say about this product is after a few weeks of use I started finding that if I wasn’t careful and applied too much it would flake off.

All in all I found this to be a great daily moisturizer. I am continuously impressed by Olay’s products and cannot wait to try out more!

Product Review: Olay Definity Neck & Chest Daily Restoration Treatment

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Olay
Name: : Definity Neck & Chest Daily Restoration Treatment
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz
Price: approximately $40 CAD

From Olay's website: "Olay Definity’s anti-aging formulas are designed to fight the look of discoloration, dullness and sun spots. Olay Definity Neck & Chest Daily Restoration Treatment penetrates multiple surface layers deep and helps restore a look that’s highly defined – truly luminous. Its dual action formula hydrates to: even skin tone, diminishing the appearance of sun spots and discolorations on the neck & chest with a tone correcting clear gel complex. The lightweight, non-greasy formula is fragrance-free and absorbs instantly, ideal for the Neck & Chest."

I've never used a separate product for my "neck & chest" area, usually using my facial cream on my neck and my body lotion on my chest, but felt that this would be a good product to try on this area. I definitely am guilty of neglecting the skin on my neck.

To Purr About:
- very light, non-greasy lotion absorbs very quickly
- no greasy after-feel
- fragrance free
- the skin on my neck felt instantly softer with only a few days use

Claws Out:
- quite expensive

Final Comments:
This Olay treatment was intriguing (not to mention mind-bending - I stared at the bottle for about 5 minutes, transfixed by the swirl of cream). Anyhow, it was extremely light and absorbs almost immediately, leaving the skin ultra smooth and soft. I did feel a difference after only a few days use.

The only thing I wasn't too fond about this product was the price. It's quite expensive considering it's only supposed to be used on the "neck & chest". I've only been using it on my neck in the hopes of stretching out the bottle a little longer - but I must admit that a little of the cream goes a long way.

Product Review: Biore Dual Fusion Moisture Lotion + SPF 30

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Biore
Name: : Dual Fusion Moisture Lotion + SPF 30
Price: $20.00 CAD

From Bioré’s website: "Bioré dual fusion™ moisturizer + SPF 30 delivers a unique blend of weightless hydration to nourish transitional skin and includes UV protection to help prevent sunburn. The special double-chambered package preserves the efficacy and potency of both the SPF protection and the silky, non-greasy moisturization properties. Featuring Bioré Botanamide technology, a ceramide-based technology with moisturizing botanicals, it improves dryness, the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone. Also contains naturally sourced moisturizing antioxidants."

To Purr About:
- contains SPF 30 to protect the skin from harmful sun rays
- didn’t smell or feel like it had SPF
- small and slim bottle allows for easy travel packing (with protective cap)
- did not irritate my super sensitive skin
- keeps skin moisturized
- absorbed quickly into my skin

Claws Out:
- 50 mL is not a lot of moisturizer, meaning I’ll have to run out & buy more very soon
- feels a little tacky/greasy feeling

Final Comments:
It’s always good to use a day time moisturizer that has a bit of SPF, so I decided to try Biore’s dual fusion product while I was trying out Bioré’s moonlighting night time moisturizer.

I really liked that this moisturizer didn’t have a strong SPF smell, like other moisturizers with SPF that I’ve used in the past. And although it was slightly tacky feeling, it was a lot less so than other moisturizers with SPF that I’ve tried.

Overall it was a a good moisturizer and I cannot wait to try it when summer rolls around and I’m exposed to more of the sun’s rays.

Product Review: Lise Watier Spa Gourmands - Lip Care (Sensational Kiss and Spa Fondant)

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Lise Watier
Name: : SPA Gourmands - Lip Care
Price: $29.00 CAD

The Lise Watier SPA Gourmands - Lip Care is a "value kit" (love it because you can try a few products for a great price). This particular kit includes Lise Watier's Sensational Kiss and Spa Fondant (available in either Chocolate Treat or Mint Infusion). I'm going to review each product separately since you can purchase them on their own.

I've been having a horrible winter beauty-wise. My skin has never suffered so much from the cold and wind as it has this year, and my lips are also suffering more than ever. They're unsually dry and chapped and wearing lipstick is really difficult because it's clumps up and scales off.

So when Suziesaurus reviewed The Body Shop Lip Care I was thinking of picking one up, but then I got my hands on this kit, so I figured I'd give this a try first.

Name: : Sensational Kiss
Size: 1.9 g / 0.06 oz
Price: approx. $19.00 CAD

A lip balm that provides a smoothing and nourishing treatment, specially designed for the delicate skin of the lips. Formulated with sugar crystals, this product gently exfoliates lips by massaging the product using the soft flock applicator or by rubbing the lips together.

The fine sugar crystals melt on the lips, while the softening products of Shea butter, panthenol and vitamin E help soften the lips.

To Purr About:
- light pleasant scent
- soft, slanted applicator is really easy to use
- leaves light, grainy crystals on the lips

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
Love it! I find this lip exfoliator super gentle and light. The crystals melt pretty quickly and I really noticed a difference in my lips after a week of use. I was having a really bad case of dry lips the day I started using this balm and the next day there was already a much more smooth lip.

Rating (out of 5):

Name: : Spa Fondant
Size: 2.2 g / 0.07 oz.
Price: approx. $19.00 CAD

Shade tried: Nude Tendresse

Rich in antioxidant Vitamin E and deep-moisturizing ingredients that keep lips from drying and chapping, this product also contains an ingredient that promotes collagent renewal.

To Purr About:
- incredibly light, moisturizing product
- lovely light, cocoa shade
- amazing chocolate scent and flavour
- goes on easily with the brush applicator

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
This is a treat for the lips. I used it right after using the Sensational Kiss product and my lips have completely recovered from the winter bashing. It really is a "spa for the lips" - it leaves a glossy (but not sticky) look on the lips and is very hard to resist not licking it all off as the shade I tried smells incredibly like chocolate. Yumm! Another winner, Lise Watier!

Product Review: Ms. Manicure Call Your Buff

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Ms. Manicure
Name: : Call Your Buff
Size: n/a
Price: approx. $2.99 USD

I'm pretty hard on my hands, spending most of my day at a keyboard, so keeping them in good shape is always a challenge. So I'm never far from a nail file, and I love this new one from Ms. Manicure.

A 4-sided, 6-way buffer, each section is labeled so that you know what it's for and which step it is:
1. "Medium Grit" for filing
2. "Fine Grit" for shaping and contouring
3. "Extra Fine Grit" to neaten edges
4. "Smooth" to smooth nails and remove ridges and stains
5. "Buff" to refine nails until they're smooth
6. "Polish" leaves a light shine

To Purr About:
- very light
- love that each section is numbered and named so that it's really easy to figure out what it's for
- great price
- each section works really well and does exactly what it says

Claws Out:
- it's quite large because it's the size of a regular large file, but it's very thick (in order to make it 4-sides)
- the storage pouch is too tight so it's really difficult to get out and put back in

Final Comments:
I love this file because it's a whole bunch of tools in one for an incredibly low price. The only thing that would have made this better is if they could have somehow made it smaller so that I could easily toss it into my bag and take it with me. As it is, I leave it at home, but I love using it.
