Girl With Bambi Eyes

I was lucky enough to be sent this Vichy cream to try. Vichy products have been a part of my skincare routine for a few years now and I was thrilled to try a product from their Aqualia Thermal range. I actually bought the gel moisturiser in this range last year and love it.

About Aqualia Thermal Light Cream

* Naturally derived ingredients including hyaluronic acid and the plant sugar mannose
* Hypoallergenic
* Paraben, oil and silicone free.

My Thoughts
Calgary has such a dry climate which can be quite harsh on my skin. I am always on the hunt for products which promise hydration and plumped up skin. I have especially been loving products with hyaluronic acid (which this has) and really helps boost my skin's appearance.

As mentioned above, I have been using the gel version of this moisturiser up until I was sent the light cream to try. At first touch, the cream felt much thicker and I was concerned that it might make my skin oily. No need to be concerned, though. This cream is an absolute dream. Very little goes a long way and it sinks in fast. As soon as it sank in, my skin felt a million times more smooth and that is no exaggeration. It felt amazing. I have continued using this moisturiser and my skin is looking really healthy and radiant. This moisturiser is light enough to use in the morning. Just make sure you also wear an SPF as there isn't one included.

In February, I shared my Spotify playlist for that month and I thought I would do the same for March. Making a monthly playlist is fun and so far I have found so many great new artists to listen to!

I don't know about you but I love discovering new music. I thought I would share my February playlist with you. It features some old favourites and some new. You can preview the songs using the Spotify widget below and if you want, follow my playlist by opening Spotify's web player.

What music have you been enjoying recently?

Maison Jacnynthe is a Candian skincare brand that I really love. I first wrote about their skincare line and then about their makeup line in 2016. They have since added a foundation to their range.

Ingredients; water, glycerin, octydodecanol, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, polyglyceryl - 10 stearate, oleic polyglycerides, benzyl alcohol, tocopherol, magnesium aluminum silicate, fragrance, microcrystalline cellulose coffee arabica seed oil, borage seed oil, cellulose gum, dehydroacetic acid, coffee seed extract, linaloolcellulose, citronellol, cinnamyl alcohol, limonene, eugenol.

Paula's Choice is the first website I will go to when I want to check out what ingredients are in a product. As you can see with this foundation, many of the ingredients are pretty good. The only downfall is the amount of fragrance added. It had no effect on my skin though.

When I got the foundation it was summer and  I got quite a tan this summer so my usual Nars foundation was too light for me. In this range, there are five shades available. Hopefully, in the future, they add more shades. I thought that 1. porcelain would be way too light so I went with 2. sand. Unfortunately, the shade sand was at least two shades too dark for me. When I put it on my face, it looked like orange fake tan...kind of giving off Ross Geller vibes. No matter how much I blended the product, you could see that it was completely off for me. Aside from seeing what the product was like, the shade was unwearable.

Shade problem aside, I LOVED the feeling of the foundation. I am not sure if it is cause I am getting older but I am starting to lean towards more light foundations or tinted moisturisers. I like to be able to see some skin through whatever I wear. This product is really light so if you want a heavy coverage, it won't be for you. The product itself was easy to blend with my Beauty Blender. When applying this foundation, I found that a little went a long way. After it was blended, it left a natural, dewy finish which was beautiful. If it wasn't for the shade issue, I would have worn this foundation every day in summer!
