Laura Mercier - Flawless Skin Face Polish

2013-07-23

Hi all, 
Really all I want to say is that this is my most favourite exfoliator ever. I feel like that sums up this product nicely. Don't worry though, I'll tell you why. 

Essentially I think that this product has the most perfect consistency. It has very fine granules in it which exfoliate extremely well, but at the same time its gentle. As you'll be able to see below there are no giant plastic exfoliating beads that can be found in some cleansers and exfoliators. However on the Laura Mercier website it does list "purifying micro beads" in the product details. Whether or not an size of "bead" is good for my skin I am not sure, perhaps I will look into that for a later post.

Regardless, I love this exfoliator, and got one of my friends hooked on it as well. I find it is able to remove the dead dry skin cells that are sometimes left behind by other product and makes my skin feel soft and smooth, which I love.

It retails for $36 CAD for 3.4 ounces, or $55 CAD for 6.8 ounces.





Super Easy Lunch

2013-07-14

Hi all,
I don't know about you, but I can be extremely lazy when it comes to figuring out what I want to eat. Especially when I'm already hungry, I just want something to eat RIGHT NOW. I don't want to have to make anything.

Try a wrap. They're so easy, and for some reason I always forget how simple it is to throw some things on a tortilla, wrap it up and eat it. It take 5 minutes.

I made a wrap consisting of ranch dressing, shredded cheddar cheese, butter lettuce, apples, and dijon turkey.
Put them all on a sun-dried tomato tortilla and I was good to go.

If you're looking for something a little different than what you might make every day I recommend trying some apple. It adds a sweetness and crunch to the wrap that you wouldn't normally have. I also find apple can go good in a sandwich or on a pizza.

Give it a try. Super simple, quick, easy lunch that won't leave you feeling guilty about eating it (like you might feel if you default to chicken nuggets as I tend to do)
