Spot Light On 🍃Delizioso Skincare🍃

Healthy Beauty, locally!

This past March I had the opportunity to work with Ariel and Leeona, two beautiful and inspiring young women in business. 

These sisters are the brains and scientists behind this organic and vegan friendly line of cosmetics, skin care and hair care products. The range of products available is mind-boggling! That is Delizioso 

Everyone from consumer level all the way up to beauty professionals can find what they need. See what others are saying on their Instagram

During a recent visit I left with the cosmetics pictured above. This included a foundation, concealer, mascara, Beeseline, lipstick and lipgloss. What is not pictured is a beautiful dark brown liner that I immediately put aside to use in my professional kit.

First Impressions:

I would be lying if I said that I had previously made my cosmetic purchases based on whether it was organic or not. I make a living providing a service to people who want their make up done and make sure that it stays put. Therefore I pay closer attention to the durability, wearability and overall versatility of the product I choose. It has been my own personal experience in the past that make up lines claiming to be organic, natural, mineral, etc. do not provide the length of coverage necessary for paying clients.

My mind was completely blown the day I tried my face products from Delizioso! The foundation and concealer work together harmoniously, while the creamy lipstick is true to the shade description and appearance; it also lasts hours without having to touch up.


Before and after, straight from iPhone – no filters or editing (just really great natural light and good posture!)

I am in love with this line…

Life Planning? I’ve gone planner crazy!! (Lifestyle Blog)

All about the colour coding, highlighters and sticker embellishments. Only problem is I usually run out of space.

I just didn’t have the ambitions to fork out 60+ dollars to order another popular life planner organizer, that would “only last me 12 month” before he had to buy it all over again.  I am stingy.   

As a busy stylist, I needed a planner that could hold my personal errands and appointments, my freelancer commitments as well as the salon clientele appointments all in one place.

A fellow woman in business posted about receiving her DynamicPlanner, along with a photo that showed the size of this book. I was intrigued so I looked further into it. Lo and behold this is a local product, to our own London Ontario!  

  

Features:

  • 7-day layout, including a 12 hour schedule grid in half hour increments. Great for professionals that schedule appointments with clients as well as keeping track of your own personal errands and tasks.
  • Amazing motivational quotes to keep you charged and inspired.
  • Fabulous downline tracking charts, follow up templates and much much more!!

The ladies at DynamicPlanner also post updates and videos to help you utilize your planner to its fullest potential as it applies to yourself and your business.
If you should wish to get your own, use my promo code “Mallory” at checkout to save! BUY NOW
Happy Planning!!

Once Upon A Creative Wedding Shoot…

A collaborative project with some of London Ontarios best wedding vendors!

A collaborative project with some of London Ontarios best wedding vendors!

Earlier this spring I had the opportunity to get together with some amazing wedding & special occasion vendors to do a styled bridal shoot.

Although we started off with a beautiful afternoon, we were quickly rained out from our outdoor location.

But we weren’t going to let Erin’s hard work go south so easily! We managed to save the gowns and most of the props (rip gorgeous cake that the storm blew over!) and found an indoor location to finish the shoot.

Revitalize your skin! Tips for a dewy spring complexion 

Last week I shared a couple of my top hair care products to transition from winter to summer hair care. 

 

 Today’s article will be my current suggestions to restoring the softness and moisture your skin may be missing at the turn of the season 🙂

This is my skin routine. I have combination to dry skin, I tend to get flaky skin easily (pictured above). After the first use of these products in this order, I saw an immediate improvement in my complexion!

See after at bottom! 

The MOST important thing to remember is to drink water, treat your skin from the inside out. 

Daily Cleanse!

SUPERCLEANSE™ Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW 

 

 Based on the top selling SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment, SUPERCLEANSE™ is the natural next step in the SUPER family for problematic skin. The revolutionary daily cleanser transforms from mud into a foaming lather to dissolve oil and makeup—rinsing away pore-clogging debris and impurities. It’s designed to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and create a mattified, super clear complexion. 

Weekly Treat!

1) SUPERMUD™ CLEARING TREATMENT by GLAMGLOW

10 minute weekly treatment mask, can also be used as spot treatments.

 This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking. 

2)THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment by GLAMGLOW

Restores hydration, leaving skin soft and supple. Can be worn overnight & used daily as well! 

 THIRSTYMUD™ uses the newest, most advanced, and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Dewdration™ boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel. GreenEnergy™ smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion

The efficacy of a serum, with the caring comfort of a cream, now united in an innovative texture that transforms the look of your skin. 
 
Instantly, the skin appears smoothed and more radiant, giving you a flawless skin tone. In 1 month, your skin looks more beautiful, as perfected, and stronger against external aggressions: the youth* of your skin is like protected for the years to come.  Source 
I purchased a treatment and night cream set at Shoppers. 


  

And there you have it! I hope this helps some of you, easily accessible product that really works. 

 

Getting your tresses ready for spring!

If you are like any number of my clients this past week ( London, Ontario’s heat wave of above zero!) you may notice the uncontrollable static and frizz that is affecting your ‘do!

These troubles are usually caused by environmental factors like humidity and dryness in the air. Just like our skin, our hair shafts need to be protected from the elements as well or else they will start to show signs of wear and tear.

I’ve gathered a small list of the top 3 items that I recommend for daily care and maintenance that are also adorable and easy to get.

1) Matrix Exquisite Oil



This lightweight, yet effective serum can be used on damp or dry hair. I love it to use on styles that require sleekness and to tame flyaways. The main ingredient is Moringa Oil. This miracle oil is harvested from the Moringa Tree which grows in the Himalayas. The high levels of antioxidants contained in the seed oil contain protein, vitamins and have been known to protect cells from damage. 

Any serum,  when used incorrectly, can cause hair to look dirty or greasy. The key is to emulsify the product in your hands (rub all over like. Hand lotion) one pump at a time. I would start with half a pump in this case as it is a high quality professional product so a little will go a long way. 

Getting the product distributed all over your hand (even on the back and between fingers) will ensure you have no heavy spots from where you begin application. Start at the ends always. That’s where it most needed. Unless you have extremely dry scalp, don’t massage into root area. Instead, smooth just the surface with your palm. You may not see the product, but your hair will take what it needs from what’s left on your hand. 

You can buy this at most salons that work with Matrix. It’s approx $20+ but will last you a long, long time. And you’re guaranteed authenticity of ingredients. 


2) Ogx beauty 



To date Ogx is my favourite store brand line of hair (and even body) care products. Ogx is a paraben-free, salon-inspired formulas contain exotic, active ingredients. Two things attracted me to this line: sulphate-free and paraben free. 

Sulphites are detergents and can be harsh on hair and seriously shorten the lifetime of your hair colour. 

I have tried the coconut milk and coconut water formulas and I adore them! I get the same luxurious result time after time, which tells me that the ingredients are quality.

You can get this at Shoppers Drug Mart and maybe Superstore (I assume since they bought out SDM)


3) One ‘n Only Argan Restorative Mask



Such a treat for your hair and your sense! This mask smells amazing and will leave your hair feeling soft and manageable. Made with Argan oil to nourish and replenish hair, this is a great choice for a weekly of bi-weekly hair treatment. Saturate hair and cover with plastic cap to generate heat. Leave on for 30-40 mins and rinse out. This brand is available at Sally Beauty and is the next best thing to buying professional brands.
