game changer with skinceuticals

If you follow me on Snapchat (username: lexniko) then you know this year has brought a life-changing event into my world. Before I spark any confusion, no I’m not engaged or pregnant – clearly not a lot going on right now – but for YEARS I have struggled with awful, awful breakouts and chronic acne that matured into adult acne. It’s taken me until 2016 but I finally discovered a bonafide solution in SkinCeuticals. SkinCeuticals has literally changed my skin in…

We are fully springing in to summer here in the city. After the winter, my skin was really dry and dull so a little skin rejuvenation was exactly what I needed!

To get set for spring and summer, I decided to test out a cocoon body wrap which is new to the spa and first…

miracle10 skincare

I’ve been having some major skin trouble lately. What started as a rash continue as a severe breakout and has now become blotchy, red patches on my face. I have no idea what is causing this and hadn’t been to the derm when miracle10 offered to help me with my problem. I met with a skincare consultant who asked me a series of questions and left with a starter kit (perfect for travel) to get me started. My skin has major…

App Love: Matrix Color Lounge

As you know because I’ve been rambling about it for a few weeks now, I am stuck in a serious hair rut! I love my color but as the seasons change, I get that major itch to switch it up. And you know I’m not one to rush out for a lob or bob so my tastes typically turn to color style. So when my friends at Matrix asked me to test out their new Matrix Color Lounge app, I…

Shu Uemura Art of Hair

Guys, I recently went back on the blog and realized that I’m missing my love affair with my insanely long hair. Now much to my friends’ amusement (or lack thereof) I have decided that I really want to grow my hair longer for the summer and truly embrace those boho, festival vibes once again. But it’s not any foolproof plan that helps my hair grow. An improved diet with lots of healthy fats, genetics provide luck on my side and the big…

Kerastase Nutritive

I have always been one to live by the rule of investing in your accessories. From jewelry to handbags, I am all for cost per wear and searching for timeless items that can transcend multiple and everyday looks. On the flip side I also acknowledge that my best accessory is feeling good and that comes from choosing to smile every day (don’t forget to floss!) and taking care of my favorite feature, my HAIR. Unfortunately with a year of travel…

Resveratrol is a revolutionary ingredient that is found in certain plants and red wine. It boosts cellular energy and works deep into the skin’s surface to reverse the affects of ageing. The team at Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie is using their expert knowledge to…

Kerastase Canada Fusio-Dose

  Last week I was delighted when Kerastase Canada invited me to Brennen Demelo Studio to try a new Fusio-Dose in-salon hair treatment. Now I know what you’re thinking, what the heck is that? These are concentrated boosters that jam your hair with a vitamin enriched formula, leaving your hair smooth, shiny and silky. For my hair, we went with the Strength formula and after a month of traveling this is exactly what my hair needed for new life. I swear the…
