I bought the Super Restorative Instant Lift Serum Mask by Clarins.  This mask cost more than a jar of mask but I figured I would give it a try.  I have always used a mask that either came in a jar or a tube.  I have used other sheet masks by Sephora before but found them almost too wet when I took them out of the package and applied them.  They fell off my face if I happened to move a bit too much,  I wasn’t too impressed.

The Super Restorative Instant Lift Serum Mask main ingredients are Shea, Oat and horse-chestnut.  The Oat helps with lifting and plumping the skin, giving the skin a more youthful look.  Shea oil, horse chestnut with harungana extract helps make tired skin fresh again along with toning the skin.

When applying the sheet mask, you first take it out of the package and unravel it, place it on the face, smooth it out then place the straps around your ears.  Then there is a neck flap that you smooth out onto the neck. Then relax….. I find this masks stays put a lot better than others that I have tried.

After 15-20 minutes of relaxation, take the mask off, massage any left over product into your skin.   Your skin will feel soft, smooth, and will look brighter. Any signs of fatigue will be gone, my neck even looked brighter.  The mask cost $23.00 for one.  A bit pricey for a one time sheet mask but worth it.  Your skin will thank you for the pampering during this cold weather.

Clarins – Instant Lip Comfort oil:

It feels like my lips are always dry and cracked especially in the winter months.  I started to use instant Lip Comfort oil in December.   My lips feel instantly hydrated without a sticky or oily feeling and my lips felt hydrated throughout the day.  I did not have to re-apply very often.   I used the Lip comfort oil while on an 18 hour plane right recently and my lips never de-hydrated during the flight.   My lips tend to get blistered while I’m in the sun without any sunscreen or if my lips dry out, I never had this problem during my 2 weeks in South Africa.  There are 7 shades available, with a hit of colour and some are flavoured (but not a strong flavour).  The bottle is 7 ml and has a super soft applicator.  The main ingredients are  Jojoba and hazelnut oils that soothe and comfort the lips.  The cost is $25.00 and can be bought at The Bay and other major drug/department strores that carry the Clarins line or on line at http://www.clarins.ca

 

Tiffany – by Tiffany & Co. :

I got a deluxe sample of  Tiffany  by Tiffany & Co.  in late October, the fragrance was launched in 2017. I was blown away by the scent, it is elegant and timeless, with a powdery hint to it and I liked the way it smelled on me.   When my sample was just about finished I decided to buy a bottle.

The fragrance smells soft, clean and  fresh.  The top notes are mandarin orange, bergamot, and lemon.  The middle notes are noble iris, black current, peach and rose, and the base notes are patchouli and musk.

The bottle design is truly elegant. Made out of crystal with a pale blue ribbon that  adorns the neck of the bottle. Truely a magnificent, elegant design and looks so pretty on my vanity.  A 75ml Eau de Parfum costs $150.00, while the 50ml Eau de Parfum costs $120.00, available at Hudson’s Bay, and other major department/drug stores in Canada.
