Relaxation with SAJE Wellness

Saje Wellness just opened their store at Scarborough Town Centre. I first discovered this company about a year ago on social media and had been dying to get myself a diffuser from them. They make essential oils which are 100% natural and are distilled from so many plants. This means flowers, grasses, fruits, leaves, and trees. They are distilled and harvested from all around the world depending on where that plant grows naturally.  Each of the essential oils offers different healing purposes and depending on the oil, can be applied directly on the skin or diffuser.

What originally interested me in Saje Wellness is that they are based out of Canada. They provide a natural and safe way to heal your body from all sorts of ailments. Most of the time, using chemicals to heal your body will result in future complications. I have honestly used my diffuser to heal a headache, get a better sleep and give me a refreshed feeling when I wake up.

I recommend trying out a diffuser from Saje even if you just want to freshen up a room in your house. My bedroom can get a bit stuffy sometimes or will even smell like whatever was cooked for dinner. As soon as I turn the diffuser on, it transforms my room and makes the air feel clean and smell fresh. I love my diffuser and use it every night, I can’t help it!

10 Best Blushes

Having fair skin, I find it extremely difficult to find products that works well for me. Most of these products I have purchased several times and have been using for years and some are new to me. Of course, some are more affordable than others but believe me, they are all worth the money and are all amazing in their own way.  If you are looking for a new blush, these are perfect for everyday and evening wear.

AQUIS Hair Towels

Recently, I have begun a new hair routine to strengthen my thin and broken locks. A product that has already made a difference is my new AQUIS Hair Towel.  I received this towel about 2 weeks ago and have used it after every hair wash. It is made to soak all of the water out of your hair to reduce the use of a blow dryer. When hair is wet it is most vulnerable, so minimizing heat is very important. Aquis is made up of a material that quickly and safely drys the hair. The longer that your hair stays wet, the more it stretches and water it absorbs. But, when it gets too stretched and bloated the keratin bonds rupture and your hair loses all natural elasticity. So it’s crucial to dry your hair fast to prevent damage. But to do so in a way that doesn’t stress or stretch your hair. It is lightweight, so it does not pull on your head and you can continue with your beauty routine while having this gentle towel on. 

I got LUXE LONG HAIR TOWEL in Moody Grey and Ive noticed that by keeping this towel on my head for as little as ten minutes, my hair is about 75-80% dry. This is perfect for the winter months because coming out of the shower with wet hair, is uncomfortably chilly. This drys the hair fast and damage-free. 

You can find these towels at Sephora or @ AQUIS.COM

Summer soft skin steps ☀️

This is one of the first summers in a long time that I have truly felt happy with my skin. I’m not bragging or anything here, I am just happy that I feel confident with it because I struggled with nasty spots growing up. For years, I felt insecure about my skin because first of all, it is very fair and freckley. Second of all, it was not very smooth and always had an obvious pimple. Third, I felt like everyone around me had flawless skin.

Just recently, these pasts couple of years I have learned to love my freckles and I get excited when I get more! Honestly, it kind of looks like a tan when you have so many. Freckles make me who I am and there is no point in hiding them because they are unique. They are awesome, they fade in the winter and come out and multiply in the summer.
Anyways, this summer I have been taking really good care of my skin and making sure it feels and looks it’s best. In the morning and night I typically wash my face with MARCELLE BB CLEANSER and just pat dry it with a towel. This takes off all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh.  In the morning, before I put on my makeup, I put on a facial sunscreen. I do this to protect my skin from whatever sun I will be exposed to during the day and to moisturize my skin. For this, I use SPF 60, because I do have very sensitive skin.
At night after I wash my face, I use the BOTANICAL SIGNATURE OIL for brightening skin. In the morning when I re-wash my face, it feels so soft and smooth.
In the summer I do try to wear as little makeup as possible for the daytime because at work I do sweat a lot. It is also very important to drink a lot of water and stay hydrated. Eating a healthy diet is key to good skin as well.  But when I do start to notice a few blemishes I use and excellent coffee scrub. There are a few that I normally use and would recommend. I have posted about these before if you are interested in coffee scrubbing.
If you are looking for some new skin care products to add into your routine, these are great! Or if you have any questions, let me know. Protect yourselves from the sun and have a great summer.
