Osprey Village Soap Company * Review*

Natural, Organic, Preservative free, toxic free.. the list goes on as alot of clients have been requesting more natural products to use them on and boy have we tried soo many of them!!   We would like to introduce to you a local skincare company called Osprey Village Soap Company.  The wife and husband team of Leah and Rob ( remember them? we met them a few years back doing makeup/hair for Leah at their Summer Wedding) start their company earlier this year and we were thrilled to try their products!!

All of their items are 100% toxic free, chemical free cruelty free ,  and contain 0 water, filler or preservatives.  Every ingredient is carefully selected . It’s important for Osprey Village Soap Company  to create pure, whole, healthy products that are not only safe, but are good for you. They have carefully curated each product and every single ingredient has a purpose. You can read more about who they are, their story and why they  started the business here: https://www.ospreyvillagesoapcompany.com/our-story/

 

A few items we tried were the Coffee Eye Serum (must have for those early mornings!), Face Serum,  and Body Butter in Harmony ( We are trying it next week).  At first I would like the say that the scents in the products are amazing.  The Essential oils used are not too overbearing, just the perfect amount.

 

Face Serum: My goodness I love this stuff, what I love about it is that you can use it as  a makeup primer !! ( Perfect for those Brides and Grads during this time) I love that is was quick to absorb into the skin and not a hot oily mess.  This made my skin super plump, hydrated and I had that healthy glow. When applied prior the foundation, the foundation worked like a dream as it did not have that ” piling effect” alot of primers have. This is a Must have!

Coffee Eye Serum: There are tons of ” eye rollers ” out on the market but nothing as amazing as this Coffee Eye Serum, I love the metal cold ball which gives off the cooling sensation. A little bit goes on a long way  I felt like I was constantly giving my self a eye massage .  Apply 2 times a day once in the morning and once at night and watch those puffy bags go away.  The caffeine also helps tighten any fines lines and reduces the puffiness around the eye. A win – win for all!

As all of their items are preservative free we suggest you put them in a cool place and use within 12 months of opening.  Happy Shopping! we look forward to trying  the rest of the line again!.  Should we carry some of these products in our lash studio? we would love to hear your opinions!

 

Spring Must Haves

 

hearts

Its that time of Year again, Out with the Old and in with the New AKA Almost and I say Almost time for Spring!!.  My makeup currently has alot of vampy colours from the Winter, matte liquid lipsticks and hand cream to get rid of the Winter dryness.  Spring is  my favourite time of year flowers start to bloom, we change our wardrobe and of course we change up our makeup bags. This year my goal is to also be more compact aka having multi purpose products so my purse isn’t soo heavy.

 

Here are my Top 3 Items for Spring that I will be definitely bringing into my bag!

 

ysl

 

YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush- This is my favourite item as its very versatile and a little bit goes along way.  YSL is known for their luxury products with amazing smells and gorgeous packaging.  Although on the pricier side, the Baby doll Kiss and Blush is a must have.   Use it on your cheeks and your lips for that airbrushed light weight feel with a pop of colour!

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow- Okay so I have actually had this for a while but I always go to it.  No matter if I need more colour to my face and a bit of bronzer in the Winter ( We have not had sun for soo long)  or if I need a more highlight, the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow is a Staple in my bag.  You can also use the bronze and the highlight colours as eye shadows as well to give you  a very natural looking eye for the Spring/Summer months.   This also comes in a deeper palette

 

laura2

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer- Comes in a few formulas like Oil Free, Regular with SPF20  and Illuminating.  Laura Mercier is a brand that focuses on amazing, flawless skin.  Her products are all great and delivery on their claims.  The tinted moisturizer is one of the best on the market being very light weight, having enough coverage and not clogging your pores.  I love how she has a few formulations so you have variety to choose from.  Availabe at Sephora

 

 

 

Nicole and Ians April Wedding

A few months ago we have the pleasure of glamming up Nicole on her Wedding Date. We had been referred to us by our friend and Wedding Collegue Amanda Coldicutt Photography. When we met Nicole we instantly clicked as we had a mutual love of working out, dogs and sharing our stories. On her Wedding date the team of Carmen, Cathy, Tara and Tia went out to Langley to glam everyone up. Stefanie Fournier Photography was Nicoles photographer for the day and she took so many amazing photos! Here are a few photos from Nicole and Ians Love Wedding =)
