CLEAN Reserve- Blonde Rose

Have you ever heard of the brand called CLEAN? I had not, until last week when I received this bottle of perfume in the mail. They not only sell perfume for men and women, but they also carry other fragrances for the body such as Body Lotions, Deodorants, Shower Gels and Hair Care Products. They also sell a line of Home Fragrances as well like Candles, Diffusers and Room & Linen Sprays.  
In January, CLEAN launched a new line called CLEAN Reserve which consists of 9 unisex scents: Blonde Rose, Sueded Oud, Terra Woods, Smoked Vetiver, Amber Saffron and Velvet Flora , as well as Reserve Blends of its most popular traditional scents Skin, Rain and Warm Cotton. What's great about all these scents is that they can each be worn on their own or blended with another scent to make it more personalized. It even gives you which other fragrances to pair it with on the box.           
All are eco-conscious fragrances, blended with raw, sustainable ingredients. You have heard the phrase "farm to table." Well CLEAN Reserve is a "farm to bottle collection" with sustainable ingredients such as saffron, spiced herbs, wild moss, birch, patchouli and leathery wood. Plus, all their fragrances are manufactured in a facility that uses 100% solar energy! 

The packaging and look is beautiful. I love the wood cap! It's sourced from Spain, and the wood is from certified  sustainably managed forests. Plus, the glass bottle is 100% recyclable.
The scent I have is Blonde Rose. The Description on the box says: Inspired by an escape to a warm bubble bath infused with rose petals and a day dream.  With notes of rose, peony, jasmine, musk & sandalwood.
As soon as I sprayed some on neck and wrist I smelled the musk right away, but once it was on for a few hours the scent became very soft and I started to smell the floral. I think the floral scent goes really well with the musk.
 I love that this scent is so different from all the other perfumes I have. It feels more modern, mature and sexy. I also love that it's such a fresh scent- very pretty.

Review: Schick Intuition Razor

I received the Schick Intuition Razor a couple of moths ago in a grab bag at an event, and I couldn't wait to jump in the shower to test it out when I got home. I am a shaver, not a waxer, so anything that looks quicker, easier and cuts my shaving time in half, is worth trying in my books.

What I love most about the Schick Intuition Razor is that I don't need to buy any shaving cream- one less thing I need to keep in the shower. It actually comes with a moisturizing bar surrounded by a 4 bladed razor. The moisturizing bar that came with mine was in the "Shea Butter" scent. In this kit, the razor blade was included, but when it runs out you do need to buy refills. They come in packs of 3 or 6 in all different kinds of scents.

To start using it was pretty simple. All you need to do is attach the moisturizing bar/ razor to the handle, get it wet and you're ready to go. In one easy step the bar starts to lather, shave and moisturize all at once. I liked that the razor was very light weight and not heavy. It also has a good handle to grip when shaving. I also found that the moisturizing bar lasted a long time as well.

When I am done shaving my legs, they feel so soft and smooth. I never see any nicks or cuts. I love skipping the step of shaving cream, it just makes my shower routine go that much faster!! Where has it been all my life?!
I also think this razor is perfect for traveling since it's a razor, and shaving cream all in one. It's nice and small and easy to pack!

Review: Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder

My love for Estee Lauder products continues...
 A few months ago, I reviewed Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. If you missed that post, you can read about it here. For the last 3 weeks, I have been testing out another one of  Estee Lauder's most popular products- Advanced Night Repair.
This serum has dramatically changed my skin in such a short amount of time. It looks so much more hydrated, bright and so soft and smooth.  I love that is it oil free, and used for all skin types because I have super sensitive skin. Over the winter I tend to get small dry patches on my face. Within 2 weeks of using the serum, the dry patches were gone.  I even find my skin feels tighter as well. I have had so many compliments on my skin since using this product, so it's not only me that sees a difference.               

It is also supposed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and also fight against aging. This is a huge bonus for me because being over 30, I now want to make sure my face remains younger looking. 

Here is how I apply it every night:
First I wash my face and neck with face wash. Then I add 4 or 5 drops of the Advanced Night Repair serum to my fingertips on one hand, and then rub all my fingertips together with both hands. Next, I apply the serum all over my face and neck, starting at the center and working my way outward. Once it's absorbed completely into my skin, I then apply my moisturizer on top of that.  

The serum is light yellow in colour as you can see here on my hand. I love that it feels so light weight and not heavy on my skin. Its also not sticky at all either, it's very silky and smooth and goes on evenly.

Their slogan is "No matter what keeps you up, Advanced Night Repair keeps you beautiful" and I have to say they are 100% correct.
I have only been using the serum for 3 week,s and I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. Especially when I wake up- my skin looks so healthy, youthful and I look so well rested.
Advanced Night Repair comes in 2 sizes- 30ml and 50ml bottle. For more information on the Advanced Night Repair, visit the Estee Lauder website HERE

The Pom-Pom Hat

Aldo-Pom-Pom Hat      Garage- Jacket     Urban Planet- Leggings       Urban Planet- Boots (Similar)
One of my favourite pieces this winter I would have to say is my Pom Pom Hat. I purchased it from Aldo in the colour "Camel". When I was searching for a Pom Pom Hat, I wanted to make sure the Pom Pom actually stood up straight. So many I tried on I found the Pom Pom would just droop, and I didn't really like that at all. I also wanted to make sure it was a thicker material as well- something very warm. I think this colour goes great with my green jacket and brown boots don't you think?
I am trying to find a smaller version for my daughter so we can match. Haven't found anything yet. If you see something similar for a toddler girl let me know in the comments below!
Have a great week!
