VIIcode ‘T2’ Oxygen Eye Cream

VIIcode ‘T2’ Oxygen Eye Cream (3)::: sponsored / press sample :::

Aging gets a bad wrap. It's not that aging itself that is so terrible, it's the looking like you've aged part that is kind of (or totally) sucky. Nobody wants to look older than they are. Obviously, there are some things we just can't control- like how quickly our roots are turning grey- but a little preventative action can do a lot of good. One area wherein most of us rev up our anti-aging game is skincare. It's a relatively easy way to keep the hands of time off your face (or at least, lessen the impact.) I've recently added the VIIcode ‘T2’ Oxygen Eye Cream to my routine, and have been pretty pleased with the results. Want to know more?  Read on!

Shop it Out with ABAA Beauty

I make it no secret that I'm Canadian, but you probably know that... right? Being Canadian and living in Canada is pretty great, but there are a few downsides. Most of which come when one tries to shop online. Shipping can be ridiculous. I don't know how many times I've filled my cart on a site that says they ship here only find the shipping is $67 (or some other equally outrageous number) The Canadian dollar fluctuates (a lot) which means my money doesn't go nearly as far- why hello, $0.70 on the dollar. It sucks the fun out of shopping pretty quickly.

Luckily, there are some great Canadian sites, but they can be tricky to find. One that I've recently discovered is ABAA Beauty. Not only are they Canadian based (in Mississauga, ON to be exact) but they have a pretty amazing selection of products at reasonable prices. They were awesome enough to send me a few bits to chat about so read on for a look. Oh, there might even be a discount too...

Michael Todd Soniclear Petite

Some might call them gimmicky, bu I happen to love beauty gadgets. Okay, there are definitely some on the market that don't live up to their claims, and are indeed gimmicky, but there are also some really great ones that make you question how you ever lived without them. From my experience, Michael Todd knows the great kind. I added the Michael Todd Soniclea Petite to my skincare routine a month (or so...) ago and have been loving it.I'm getting ahead of myself though, so read on for my thoughts.
