Being Fab: Beauty Products

By September 5, 2017 Beauty, M. Fab

There has been a lot of buzz around using the term ‘anti-aging’ since Allure magazine announced they would be phasing out using this term in their latest issue.

We at have always upheld the stance on beauty inclusivity. We think aging is a gift and a privilege and everyone should embrace the path they walk down, doing the best they can, feeling good about who they are and what they look like, at any age.

Remember, it is not your age, but your state of mind!

We think age is not intrinsically linked to beauty and rather than trying to look younger, we want to look the best we can by treating our hair, face and bodies with the love and care they deserve.

Here are some luxe new products we want to share with you that will help that beautiful hair and face of yours get the pampering they deserve.

Phytodensia Plumping Shampoo, Mask, and Serum: Launching September 2017

This soon-to-be-released in Canada collection helps promote hair growth, radiance and strength. With volume-boosting hyaluronic acid, acacia collagen for radiance, grape extract for growth and vitamin-rich vernonia – this collection is a luxurious experience for your locks. I think the serum is a unique product as it works at the root to transform your hair.

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules – Eye Serum:

I professed my love of the Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramid Capsules for your face before, and it’s like the listened to my dreams creating this recently launched product specifically for the eye area! The new Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum firms and reduces the look of crow’s feet and puffiness. A little goes a long way, so I use the excess on my neck, chest and hands.

SKYN Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Neck Gel:

A mask for your neck! The skin on your neck is very fragile and is often NECKglected (ha!). This single-use patch seals in moisture while giving an immediate smoothing and cooling effect. A tip – when you apply this path, massage the area as that helps absorption of the ingredients.

Institut Arnaud Paris: Youthful Radiance Quick Beauty Lift Vials

This Parisian brand has been creating skin care since 1945, focusing on using the best possible ingredients for ultimate quality. I really love the idea of these ‘beauty lift vials’. Perfect before an event, or after a late night, the elixir helps to tone your skin while easing the signs of fatigue.

Alterna’s Caviar Infinite Colour-Hold Shampoo, Conditioner and Vibrancy Serum:

With clinical results promising ‘70-day vibrant colour and shine’, this sulfate-free line provides UV protection, replenishes lost moisture and combats colour fade! Kiss dull and brassy hair good-bye with these sleek, caviar-extract infused beauties. Hydrating seasilk and no parabens make this collection my new go-to.

These are all new to stores – so I hope you are able to track them down and give them a try!
