CoolCanucks Review of the Tea Galllerie!

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

 

 

 

Being huge tea drinkers at my house as well as at my par­ents, I just knew that I had to try all of the huge assort­ment of teas that Tea Gal­lerie car­ries! After com­ing across their web­site, my eyes lit­er­ally popped when I saw many dif­fer­ent mouth­wa­ter­ing fla­vors that I have never tried before!!

I was sent two deli­cious teas to sam­ple, and as expected, they tasted just as good as described! I received one pack­age in Pas­sion­fruit Black, as well as White Coconut Crème! My mother and I had a field-day exper­i­ment­ing with these 2 scrump­tious fla­vors! Also, the pack­ag­ing is so pretty, just like on their website!

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Tea Gal­lerie, you will find the best tea ever! They offer so many vari­eties of yummy teas that you can try for your­self, or even offer as gifts for your fam­ily and friends! Almost every­one that I know is a tea-lover, and now I have the per­fect gift in mind for that per­son on my hard to buy for list!!

 

 

Choose from:

 

mate, dessert, oolong, black, green, white, herbal, pu-erh, Tea For Preg­nancy, Tea For Her, Tea For Him, TEA SWEETS, TEAWARE, TEAPOT

 

And even choose from a gor­geous array of tea gifts to splurge on your­self, or for a gift to give to some­one dear to you on that spe­cial occasion!!

 

 

 

You just can­not go wrong when shop­ping at the Tea Gal­lerie. Their prices are very rea­son­able, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are phe­nom­e­nal, and their deliv­ery time was also beyond outstanding!

CoolCanuck Blog Contest ~ Sibu Beauty Review!!

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Sibu Beauty is a very won­der­ful com­pany that makes lux­u­ri­ous nat­ural skin cleansers, mois­tur­iz­ers, other top­i­cal treat­ments and dietary sup­ple­ments that beau­tify and pro­tect you. The Sibu Beauty prod­ucts are made from Himalayan sea buck­thorn berry which is also known as the “beauty berry”. Sea buck­thorn con­tains over 190 bioac­tive com­pounds that help to restore, revi­tal­ize and pro­tect youth­ful beauty…from the inside-out and outside-in. These berries help to nour­ish skin, hair, nails and also even aid in diges­tion with pow­er­ful antiox­i­dants, essen­tial fatty acids and Omega 7

 

Sibu Beauty was kind enough to send some prod­ucts to review:

 

 

 

Sea Buck­thorn Seed Oil

–Quick acting/readily absorbed

–For all skin-types

–Helps dimin­ish wrinkles/age-spots

–Pro­motes skin recov­ery and healing

–10 ml bot­tle w/ drop­per tip

 

 SibuBeau­ty­SeaBuck­thorn Bal­anc­ing Facial Cleanser

–Leaves skin look­ing and feel­ing radi­ant and refreshed

–Removes excess oil and impurities

–Con­tains micro-particles for a gen­tle exfoliation

–Great for remov­ing make-up

–Non-foaming gel for­mula for all skin types

 

 SibuBeau­ty­SeaBuck­thorn Hydrat­ing Serum

–Pro­motes youth­ful skin tone and texture

–Fights age with­out dam­ag­ing chemicals

–Bright­ens com­plex­ion and evens out skin tone

–Helps pro­tect against envi­ron­men­tal stress

–Nat­u­rally stim­u­lates col­la­gen production

 

 

 

 

I am always look­out for fan­tas­tic new prod­ucts to pam­per my skin and my body but also find that my skin is super sen­si­tive and will break out eas­ily if in con­tact with some­thing that has too many chem­i­cals in it. I used all of the Sibu Beauty prod­ucts over the period of a month and really have found a dif­fer­ence in how health my skin looks and feels. It did not have any adverse reac­tions like break­outs or red­ness when using the Sibu Beauty prod­ucts. For years I have had a bit of red blotch­ing around my nose and on my cheeks and found that these prod­ucts have helped reduce that redness.

 

 

 

 

I used the Sibu Beauty facial cleanser reli­giously each and every day, it is not harsh, rough on my skin and does not feel dried out after, like I find many cleansers to be. In the evening I would use the Sibu Beauty Hydrat­ing Serum on my face and neck. This prod­uct is not oily or heavy I loved the way it felt on my skin after using it. In the morn­ings I would use the day­time facial cleanser and let it soak in before apply­ing my makeup. I like that it hydrates and mois­tur­izes my skin and keeps it feel­ing that way all day long.  All in all though, using these prod­ucts together has made a notice­able dif­fer­ence, my skin is feel­ing so much health­ier, the blotchy red­ness has been reduced and my skin feels so much softer. I would rec­om­mend these Sibu Beauty prod­ucts for any­one who wants to beau­tify and pro­tect their skin.

Step Into Summer AND Your Bathing Suit with Confidence!

Friday, June 7th, 2013

BIC® Soleil® Fit­ness Expert shares her tips and tricks on

how to con­fi­dently get bathing suit ready

Sum­mer is just around the cor­ner and Cana­dian women are get­ting their bod­ies ready by mak­ing sure that their legs are in flaw­lessly smooth shape and mak­ing sure their bikini area is trimmed so that they feel their best for swim­suit sea­son. A recent sur­vey of female adults by BIC® Soleil® — an indus­try leader and inno­va­tor for devel­op­ing pre­mium dis­pos­able shavers that meet the needs of women – reveals that nearly 50% of Cana­dian women hate bathing suit shop­ping (only 7% said they loved bathing suit shop­ping).* To help women tran­si­tion into the new sea­son AND into bathing suits with con­fi­dence, BIC® Soleil® has intro­duced its new BIC® Soleil® Shave and Trim, the first 2-in-1 dis­pos­able shaver that allows women to groom all body parts, includ­ing the most sen­si­tive spots, with one product.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It’s no sur­prise that shop­ping for a bathing suit is an unpleas­ant expe­ri­ence for many women,” says Alli­son Ethier, Cana­dian Fit­ness Cham­pion, Nutri­tion Con­sul­tant and Model. “As some­one who spends a lot of time com­pet­ing and being judged in a bathing suit, I know how impor­tant it is to feel con­fi­dent when show­ing so much skin.”

Alli­son has part­nered with BIC® Soleil® Shave and Trim to encour­age all Cana­dian women to cel­e­brate self-confidence and set their bathing suit bod­ies free for the summer.

“It’s all about pick­ing the right bathing suit that works with your body type,” says Alli­son. “Pair the right bathing suit with sleek legs and a smooth bikini area and you will instantly feel more confident.”

 

 

 

Body Type #1: Straight

“Straight with very few curves, this body type is small all over and needs a swim­suit to add vol­ume and curves to the waist, butt and hips. Great one piece options include cut-out sides, strap­less with ruch­ing at the top and moulded cups or inserts for added lift. For biki­nis, look for a hal­ter or V-shaped top and a bot­tom with fun side ties to add vol­ume to the hips.”

 

Body Type #2: Pear Shape

“Pear shape body types have an over­all smaller upper body and are larger on the bot­tom. To add bal­ance and cre­ate a more sym­met­ri­cal shape, ‘pin-up girl’ style one-piece swim­suits are a fan­tas­tic option; look for some­thing with a plung­ing neck­line or ruf­fles around the top to draw the eye upward. For two-piece swim­suits, a skirt-style bot­tom works well with a top of the same colour. Go for a darker shade for a slim­ming effect!”

 

Body Type #3: Curvy/Hourglass

“Curvy/hourglass shaped women are gen­er­ally look­ing for sup­port and cov­er­age in a bathing suit. Try to avoid one-piece suits alto­gether as this tends to cre­ate a boxy look. Go for a top that has seam­ing under the bust; V-shape, hal­ter or one-shoulder are all great options for added sup­port. Darker bot­toms in a solid colour or small pat­tern work well to bal­ance out the figure.”

 

Body Type #4: Athletic

“For women with an ath­letic shape, look for a swim­suit that has more fem­i­nine cuts and details to bal­ance out a less curvy fig­ure. Any­thing with ruch­ing, detail, and tapered bot­toms in the back will give a curvier appearance.”

 

Body Type #5: Apple Shape

“Apple shaped women tend to hold weight in the mid-section, with thin­ner arms and legs. To add def­i­n­i­tion to the waist, a one-piece swim­suit with a cute belt is a great option. Also try colour block­ing on the sides, which cre­ates the look of a more defined waist. For two-piece suits, try a hal­ter or deep V shape to bring the eye upward, with an empire bot­tom to accen­tu­ate the waistline.”

 

 

 

 

 

Inno­va­tion Now in a Women’s Shaver

When it comes to groom­ing the bikini area, almost half of Cana­dian women between the ages of 18–34 sur­veyed said that they often expe­ri­ence skin irri­ta­tion and red­ness. Using a shaver that has a bikini area trim­mer is an excel­lent tool to trim the area with bet­ter pre­ci­sion and less irritation.

  • Three flex­i­ble blades and a piv­ot­ing head for a flaw­lessly smooth shave
  • Lubri­cat­ing strip with Vit­a­min  E, for a silky smooth shave
  • Slide-on/slide-off trim­mer head for safe, sim­ple and easy bikini trim­ming that allows just the right length
  • Piv­ot­ing head with rub­ber grip for ulti­mate comfort

 

BIC® Soleil® Shave & Trim is avail­able at most major drug stores and mass mer­chants across Canada ($6.98 — $9.99).
