Ageless Derma Satin Lip Gloss Review

A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity to test out a  full sized pot of Satin Lip Gloss from Ageless Derma. I was intrigued by the product because it claims to have the properties of a lip chap but also provide a pop of colour, similar to a lipstick. In the past, I have found that glosses claiming to moisturize and add hue, usually fall short in at least one of those areas – it seems almost impossible to find a product that can deliver both.

The Satin Lip Gloss comes in twelve different shades, from nude to violet and everything in between. I chose a rose coloured gloss, Blossom, to sample.Ageless Derma Satin Lip GlossSatin Lip Gloss in BlossomThese lip colours are vitamin enriched and feature key ingredients like Castor Oil, Lanolin, Ceresin, Paraffin, Soybean Oil to moisturize and protect. The Ageless Derma website describes the collection as a moisturizing set of lip glosses made with aloe vera, green tea extract and a hint of refreshing peppermint oil.

I was very impressed with the texture and longevity of this gloss. I truly believe that it delivered in both adding colour and moisture to my lips. The hue wore well and only came off when I ate or drank, which is understandable as it isn’t a stain. When applied, the colour is very natural and enhances your lips while providing just a touch of shimmer. The more I used this gloss, the better my lips felt. Blossom Satin Lip GlossUnfortunately for anyone with long nails, applying this product with your fingers is absolutely impossible. The pot is small and it is hard to get product on the pads of your digits without getting loads of residue under your nails. For me, this is a huge limitation as I rarely [never] carry a lip brush with me when I am out. While the application is effortless with a brush, I would have prefered a tube type of applicator so that I can use this gloss on the go.

All in all, I really like this product and would highly recommend it! I received compliments every time I wore this gloss out of the house. At $15, Ageless Derma Satin Lip Gloss is extremely affordable and delivers great results. To purchase a pot of your own, visit: AglessDerma.com, you won’t be disappointed!

August Beauty Favourites

This time of the year really makes me remember my childhood. Gearing up to go back to school meant shopping, new supplies, new clothes and when I finally was old enough, new makeup. Today I want to share a few of my favourite beauty buys with you – just in case you are in the market for a little back to school nostalgia. In the near future I will share more depth product reviews of many items you see here.
August Faves

Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer – If you have dry and flaky skin, this primer is made for you. It will smooth any rough patches and leave your face looking matte and beautiful. Just a caveat – if you have very oily skin this primer may be too heavy and could cause breakouts.
YSL Babydoll Mascara – This is my go to mascara. I use it day in and day out. It plumps and separates my lashes like now other. If you’re interested in a full product review just click here.
Guerlain Lingerie De Peau – A foundation that applies effortlessly and provides moisture and medium coverage for the entire day – no reapplication required. Layer Lingerie De Peau over the Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer and be prepared to receive skin compliments all day long!
Ageless Derma Satin Lip Gloss* – This moisturizing gloss is made with aloe vera and green tea extract which makes avoiding cracked, dry lips a total breeze. It isn’t often you find a lip gloss/lip chap combo that actually delivers the results it promises. After a swipe of Ageless Derma Satin Gloss your lips will be thanking you.
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate – I received a tiny tester of this exfoliator and I was hooked. In just two minutes, twice a week you’ll notice a significant change in the appearance of your face. This product will rid your skin of dead cells and eliminate bacteria leaving you feeling fresh faced and beautiful.
Almay Lash Care Makeup Remover Pads* – I’ve been known to sleep in my mascara more often than I’d like to admit. In all honesty, finding cotton pads and makeup remover has always been a chore for me at night, but this gentle eye makeup remover allows me to skip this step entirely. These pre-soaked towelettes make taking off my mascara a breeze, consider my days of makeup removal excuses over!

Now it is your turn to share, what beauty products are at the top of your must buy list?

The One Day Of The Week That Is Better Than All The Rest

Friday is always an awesome day, it is the end of the week and the day before the weekend. But for me, today is even better than usual. First of all, I am writing this post from the beautiful Toronto, Ontario [you’ll find out why in a second] and second, I am on vacation from work today! Eager to find out what has been keeping a big smile on my face this week? High Five For Friday

1. After work wine with friends. Might as well make the most of the patio season while it is still warm out.
2. Admiring the beautiful city I live in. This picture doesn’t do the parliament buildings justice, but you can get an idea at least.
3. Surprise deliveries, especially when they contain beauty products! I can’t wait to test out this Ageless Derma lip gloss!
4. Traveling to Toronto in style… Via 1 style. If you’re not familiar with the Canadian railway giant, this is means first class – drinks and meals included.
5. And finally, the reason why I am in Toronto – and on vacation today. I am going to workout with the one and only Jillian Michaels!! Don’t worry, I’ll give you a full recap after – as long as I have any energy left to type. I’m about to get my butt kicked, hard.

Thanks again to Lauren for hosting High Five For Friday.

Have a wonderful weekend!
