Vitamin E Serum Collage

Alessandra is back again with another new THE BODY SHOP review! This time, the new and ultra-coveted VITAMIN E SERUM-IN-OIL.


Okay, I have to admit I was so excited after hearing about the launch of this new product. This past year I’ve started using serums and oils and have really enjoyed them. I already use THE BODY SHOP’s VITAMIN E EYE CREAM, FACE MIST and BB CREAM so I knew their new VITAMIN E OVERNIGHT SERUM-IN-OIL would be amazing.

“Florals. For Spring? Groundbreaking.”Miranda Priestley

The infamous line from THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA!

It’s simple – Spring means a bouquet of bountiful florals in both the garden and in our daily fashion. Florals never go out of style and they are relatively easy to pull off, regardless of fashionable ability. Florals can be simple, bold, colourful, muted, or bright.

I’ve got a few floral items for Spring that will help you revamp your 2014 Spring wardrobe without breaking the budget. Keep reading!

lit.review: Purified by Brian Smith

Purified Novel

Science fiction, horror, suspense – oh my!

I love showcasing Canadian content – I’ve got a special soft spot especially for Canadian writers. When I was contacted by author named Brian Smith, I was immediately drawn into his debut novel synopsis PURIFIED. Besides the fact that it was outside of my normal genre, I knew I had to give it a chance.

What would you do if you were given a second chance at life?

Total Repair Extreme

Confession time – this harsh winter has completely destroyed my hair. I’m talking immensely dry, static-prone, flyaway, limp, dead hair.

Lucky for me, I’ve found a solution in the latest L’OREAL PARIS Spring releases. Even better? It costs less than a cup of coffee. A big thanks to L’OREAL PARIS TOTAL REPAIR EXTREME – read on for my review.

It’s no surprise here on chic.toronto that I absolutely LOVE THE BODY SHOP’s products. I recently had a chance to try one of their best sellers, HEMP HAND PROTECTOR, never using this before or any of their hemp line I was pretty excited.

How many of us can truly say that they understand their own skin? While we might be able to classify our skin as combination, dry, or oily – there is so much more to our skin that is hiding just below the surface.

For your skin’s own good, you owe yourself to check out the VICHY SKIN HEALTH CENTRE that is currently taking place at the TORONTO EATON CENTRE. A revolution in skin analysis …. that’s totally free.
