Autumn has flown by, the wind has already blown the bright colorful leaves to the ground and a layer of snow and ice settled on the streets. While I fear the inescapable plunge into winter, I have loved indulging in darker lipsticks, smokey eyes and more deeply moisturizing skin care. Not to mention the joys of wearing cashmere all the time. It is the perfect season to stay in, have a hot bath, exfoliate, and paint my nails. By day, I have been playing with sultry makeup outside my usual routine and wearing dark and smokey eyes more than usual.

Hello again! I am glad to be back blogging after an especially busy start to autumn. I am finally settling in with my new job, and thank you to my lovely coworkers for checking out my blog! (Let's have more lingerie chats! And skin care too!) It has been truly wonderful joining the beauty industry and meeting so many like-minded people. As a result of my new job, I have more people enabling my beauty purchases than usual, and so I have accumulated too many goodies in recent weeks!
A beautiful new cleanser has entered my life. I got tired of purchasing Bioderma over and over, going through it too quickly, and not feeling like it did anything for my skin but remove makeup. And I haven't been using my Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm every day because I want the jar of luxury to last!

Institut Esthederm Adaptasun Tanning Spray - Normal to Strong Sun
All summer, I slathered on this sunscreen in breathless anticipation of a natural golden tan as well as the true preventative benefits of a traditional sunscreen. I am pleased to join the rave reviews for the Adaptasun range online, and I must agree that this stuff was brilliant. I never once burned and yet managed to develop a healthy summer tan as early as June. That's saying a lot in Canada!
The mysterious science behind this product and its ability to promote melanin production and prevent burning is not only intriguing, but produces real results too. I felt comfortable using this product even without the SPF rating we have come to expect in mass marketed sunscreens. This product simply did what it claimed, and I never had to supplement with another sunscreen to protect my skin. As a spray, it was quick to apply to my body and never felt sticky. This is a fantastic quality sunscreen that I will continue to use on my body until it runs out. I did try it on my face and experienced breakouts summer-long, particularly when I forgot to thoroughly cleanse and remove this in the evenings.
