Quo Beauty Hydrating Facial Serum Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Quo Beauty Hydrating Facial Serum – another one of my recent purchases from Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, so I’m ready to let you know how it measures up. [info in italics taken from the Shoppers website]

Hydrating Facial Serum formulated with hyaluronic acid is just what your skin has been waiting for. The light weight texture & formula helps leave your skin feeling soft and smooth with a velvety finish.

Vitamin C helps to even out the skin tone while helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sodium Hyaluronate (a derivative of Hyaluronic Acid) penetrates deeper layers of the skin to attract and hold moisture which, overtime, works to enhance & replenish skin. Vegan Cruelty Free

Another budget friendly, drugstore brand!

This facial serum is lightweight, non-sticky and sinks into the skin quickly, and adds extra hydration. It contains two of my favourite ingredients – hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. My skin loves anything with vitamin C in it.

It plays nicely with my moisturizer, spf and with makeup too. Also – it has little to no scent! Always a plus in my opinion as I don’t enjoy using over-scented skincare products.

Have you tried this facial serum?

Skin&CO Truffle Therapy Face Toner Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude! Today I have a review of the Skin&CO Truffle Therapy Face Toner that came in my Winter CAUSEBOX [info in italics taken from the Skin&CO website].

Gentle, powerful, soothing, and healing.  Truffle Therapy Face Toner deeply cleanses and purifies pores with the antiseptic power of Witch Hazel and Sage, effectively removing impurities, clogged pores and dead skin cells to treat, heal, and prevent blemishes.  The natural extracts and antioxidant properties of Black Winter Truffle, Rosemary, Calendula, and Cucumber soothes and protects from environmental and free radical damage.

This is a really nice toner – it doesn’t sting or make my skin feel stripped. My skin seems to be doing really well since I started using this toner approximately four weeks ago. I think that it is really helping to prevent my skin from breaking out or becoming over-sensitive from all the mask wearing.

Have you tried this cruelty free and vegan toner? Do you have a favourite facial toner?

I love cleansing milks / creamy cleansers – this one is delivers a gentle, yet effective cleanse. It adds hydration and makes my skin feel clean and soft.

aeos Cleansing Oil Dé-Maq Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Sorry that I’ve not been keeping to my usual blogging schedule these days, but today I have a review of a cleansing oil that I’ve been using on and off for the past year – the aeos Cleansing Oil Dé-Maq. I received this as a part of my judging package for the 2019-2020 Cert-Clean Clean Beauty Awards and it was one of my top rated facial cleansers that I had judged. [info in italics taken from the aeos website]

Rapidly reveal a smooth, glowing, nourished complexion, as you remove every last trace of make-up and impurities with our award-winning oil-based cleanser.

A transforming blend of premium-grade organic and biodynamic oils and plant extracts, this revolutionary formula helps normal/dry skin retain optimal moisture with the pure power of plants, as well as balancing oily/combination skin types.

I tend to use oil based cleansers in the colder months, or when I’m doing a double cleanse. The aeos Cleansing Oil is so hydrating and does a great job of removing makeup – even waterproof mascara! It doesn’t leave a greasy film after rinsing. And it has a mild, pleasant herbal scent – I can mainly smell the frankincense.

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Squalane (derived from olives), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Opuntia Ficus Indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil, Boswellia neglecta (Frankincense) Resin Oil, Triticum Spelta (Spelt) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil. Natural constituents of essential oils: Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Eugenol, Farnesol.

Have you tried this cleansing oil? What is your favourite?

Versed Dew Point Moisturizing Gel-Cream Review

Hello, hello, welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Versed Dew Point Moisturizing Gel-Cream that I bought for myself recently. Versed is a cruelty free and vegan drugstore brand. [info in italics taken from the Versed website]

Let’s take a look at the moisturizer:

If you want to keep your skin hydrated but don’t like the feel of traditional cream textures, meet your new moisturizer match. The lightweight gel-cream formula with a jelly-like texture absorbs instantly and disappears into your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed, never greasy. Basically, it’s ideal for those warmer months when heavier moisturizers tend to weigh you down—or simply if you deal with oily, breakout-prone skin 365 days a year. Sodium hyaluronate (like hyaluronic acid it helps draw in and retain moisture in skin) and aloe leaf juice hydrate while natural antioxidants found in green tea soothe skin, fight damaging free radicals, and quiet inflammation.

This is a super light weight gel type moisturizer. It absorbs quickly, and is surprisingly hydrating. I’ve been using it with my Way of Will Brightening Serum and Grace & Stella Hyaluronic Acid Serum. The jelly texture makes it feel so refreshing when applied. I plan on trying a few more things from this brand as they are super affordable.

Way of Will Brightening Face Serum Review

Hello, hello, welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Brightening Face Serum from Way of Will that came in my Fall 2020 Causebox. [info in italics taken from the Way of Will website]

Way of Will is a Canadian brand, based in Toronto. They are cruelty free.

Let’s take a look at the serum:

Keep your skin looking healthy and glowing with our Brightening Face Serum. Formulated to be lightweight and easily absorbed by skin, this serum is rich in vitamins, high in antioxidants to fight free radicals, and keeps skin hydrated. Each compact bottle packs a powerful punch when it comes to skin-loving ingredients that moisturizes, brightens, tones, and revitalizes dull, tired-looking skin for a radiant complexion.

Serums are probably my favourite skincare product. The Brightening Face Serum feels like a facial oil, and it sinks into my skin quickly. My skin does really well with brightening serums – this one has a blend of Vitamins A and C, and contains Marula, Black Currant and Carrot.

Since I started using this serum, I’ve been skipping foundation, and only using concealer for my undereyes, and anywhere I have redness. It gives my skin a glowy look that I love.

Ingredients: Camellia oleifera seed (Camellia) oil, Vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, Rosa rubiginosa Fruit (Rosehip) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) oil, Sclerocarya birrea (Marula) Seed Oil, Hippophae rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) oil, Citrus paradisi (Grapefruit) Oil, Daucus carota (Carrot seed) Oil, Pelargonium roseum X asperum (Rose Geranium) Oil, Tocopherol
