    Event LOVE: #VitabathLuxury at the Park Hyatt Toronto @Vitabath


    We were recently invited to the Vitabath Media Preview to enjoy an afternoon of luxury on the rooftop of the Park Hyatt Hotel in Yorkville. We got pampered with massages, manicures, sipped on cocktails and snacked on tasty hors d’oeuvres; and most importantly we were given a chance to have hands-on experience with a number of the skincare and fragrance products from the Vitabath line.


    “Luxury in a Bottle For over 55 years, Vitabath® luxury skin care has remained unequaled for gentle skin cleansing and conditioning.”


    This was my first experience with Vitabath, and I was pleased to find that they offer an array of bath and beauty skin care products like scented bar soaps, moisturizing lotions, shower gels and exfoliating scrubs. If you’ve ever seen my bathroom, you’ll know that I love me some bath and beauty skin care products! This event was for me baby!20130613_175824

    The Power of Copper @OsmoticsBeauty

    A groundbreaking anti-aging collection that harnesses the power of advanced copper peptide technology to deliver visibly younger-looking skin. Trusted for delivering first-to-market innovations and breakthrough technologies, Osmotics Cosmeceuticals works with the country’s top university medical centers to develop potent formulations using only the purest, most premium quality ingredients. With the Blue Copper 5 collection, the experts behind Osmotics have harnessed the power of copper, an essential mineral for skin health, to bring you an anti-aging skincare collection that offers unparalleled results.

    Formulated with copper peptide technology used extensively in wound care, the Blue Copper 5 collection strengthens skin against signs of aging while improving its overall luminosity. Copper is combined with Osmotics’ exclusive collagen-boosting 5-chain peptide to create this advanced technology that works at a cellular level to defend skin against visible signs of aging by improving firmness and elasticity. Osmotics was the first to identify the skincare benefits of copper peptide technology and apply it to the cosmeceutical arena by developing an anti-aging formula featuring the technology. The innovation is yet another example of Osmotics’ pioneering approach to skincare and first-to-market technology development, as copper has since become a category unto itself in the skincare segment.

    The award-winning Blue Copper 5 collection includes the following products to ensure visibly younger-looking skin from head to toe.

    Firming Elasticity Repair: Specially formulated to encourage skin to act younger, this silky-smooth cream increases
    firmness, elasticity and radiance. Enriched with essential vitamins and nutrients that stimulate reparative processes and collagen synthesis to heal damaged skin and prevent signs of aging, this luxe cream enhances skin with a luminous glow. Ideal for even sensitive skin types, it evens out skin tone and calms redness and irritation associated with Rosacea and facial peels.

    Firming Eye Repair: Diminish fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles while firming, tightening and lifting the area around
    the eyes. This multi-benefit formula also smoothes crepe-y eyelids to help keep makeup in place and increase wear time. An ultra-soothing, rich, cream-gel, it features a potent blend of active copper, anti-aging peptides and proteins to boost collagen levels for more toned and lifted eye contours.

    7 Night Molecular Repair Treatment: You’re just a week away from radiant, glowing, ageless skin with this intensely
    reparative formulation. Developed for use over the course of seven nights, it combines the anti-aging benefits of copper with an exclusive
    extract that stimulates skin’s natural repair processes. The result? Healthier looking skin, diminished redness, fine lines and wrinkles and
    improved tone and texture. A must for anyone who has undergone an aggressive dermal procedure, or is facing changes in climate, stress or hormone levels, this treatment boosts hydration and elasticity for smooth, supple results.

    Face Lifting Serum: The ultimate solution for lifted, firm skin, this daytime essential targets sagging skin to instantly tone
    and tighten. The anti-aging benefits of copper peptide are combined with advanced topical lifting technology to deliver short- and long-term
    lifting and firming benefits while also visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with sweet almond proteins to smooth skin and Shiitake mushroom extracts to enhance skin’s support structure, it promotes healthier, younger-behaving skin for a truly rejuvenated effect.

    Age Repair Body Lift: A 3-in-1 anti-aging treatment designed to lift and firm the bust, belly and behind, this unique
    formula also reduces stretch marks up to 72%. Developed with Osmotics’ active copper, as well as two new biopeptides and plant extracts that improve skin’s texture all over the body, this silky cream promotes elasticity and collagen synthesis for smoother skin from head to toe.

    Lip and Tuck: Offering the perfect pop of color and plumping benefits, this must-have lip treatment restores lip contours
    and diminishes lines and signs of aging for a younger-looking, smoother and healthier pout. Formulated with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to enhance fullness, moisturizing macadamia nut oil to relieve dryness, as well as copper and anti-aging peptides, it can be worn alone as a gloss or layered over lip color.
    Available Shades: Cognac, Natural, French Kiss, Golden Nectar

    Available at select Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Henri Bendel locations, as well as independent boutiques and spas or at

    The boys like it

    “It has been noted that two-thirds of Canadian men are comfortable using women’s personal care products, but only 1 in 4 are comfortable admitting it.”

    Michael Strahan and Dominic Lacasse were in Toronto to celebrate the launch of Vaseline Men.

    The new line features the, Fast Absorbing Hydrating Body & face Lotion, and the Extra Strength Hydrating Boday & Face Lotion. Both lotions are non-greasy, super absorbent, can be used daily, and keep the skin resilient and healthy looking. So now you can stop using your mom/sister/girlfriend/lady friend’s lotion and get your own, made just for you!

    You can get the new Vaseline Men line at grocery and drug stores across Canada.

    Show them some Vaseline some L-O-V-E on Facebook!

    peace and love

    EnPointe Renewal Serum

    For the past few weeks, I have been using Dr. Christine Rodgers EnPointe “Encore Renewal Serum” ($85).  Now, this is actually an anti-aging serum and aging is not really one of my concerns at this point, but when I read the label it sounded like something that could be beneficial to me:

    “Transforms skin’s appearance with natural brighteners, powerful anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants to help decrease melanin production, reduce pigmentation and minimize the appearance of age spots.”


    Who doesn’t want smooth, hydrated, radiant skin and improved texture and tone??  All I can say is that this product definitely delivered!  I noticed results the first time I used it.  It decreased imperfections and darks spots and made my skin much smoother.  And believe me, my skin can sometimes be quite disagreeable!!  The test was when I went to Cancun—normally a trip to a hot and humid location is a promise that my skin is going to go haywire, but nothing happened!!  It even stood up to those couple nights I was naughty and fell asleep with my makeup on (tsk, tsk!) I am hooked!!

    The surprise verdict is, don’t dismiss anti-aging products because you’re not at that point yet.  Some of these products can be beneficial to you at any age!!


    About EnPointe Skin Solutions:  Fights the signs of aging and stress on multiple levels while also promoting the health of the skin and body in a very safe way. It is a skincare line that is truly effective in reducing the visible signs of aging in the face, and one that works to maintain the future health of the skin.
