Are You Addicted To Lip Balm?

If you use a balm more than three times a day, carry more than one in your purse and keep various balms in multiple places, you’re probably dealing with an addiction. 
Here’s the thing: When your lips are covered in synthetic ingredients, they feel moisturized and protected, yet their cells don’t have a chance to turn over and renew. So, once your lips feel dry, you probably simply reapply your lip balm and your lips never have a chance to repair themselves. It’s a vicious, waxy cycle. - The Globe and Mail (Beauty Section)

Break the cycle with an effective lip care regimen. Regular exfoliation and a high quality lip moisturizer should help you kick the habit and keep your lips in tip top condition!

The Best Scrubs for Smoother Skin
 1. Best At-Home Spa Treatment: [comfort zone] Fruity Peel
Despite being named as a “scrub” this gel-based formula is non-abrasive. The exfoliating action comes from the acids (AHAs, Glycolic, malic, citric and lactic acids, fruit extracts, jojoba microspheres) that work to delicately remove dry, rough skin while improving hydration. After use, your skin will feel silky smooth and soft, lasting for days as if you just received the most glorious spa treatment!

2. Best Scrub & Moisturizer: LaLicious Brown Sugar & Vanilla Sugar Soufflé
This natural body scrub is made with coconut oil which absorbs quickly and easily into your skin, leaving it moisturized and protected without feeling greasy. Pure cane sugar crystals exfoliate dead skin cells while sweet almond and vitamin-e oils condition, moisturize, and smooth you to perfection with the sweet scent of vanilla. There is no need for body lotion afterwards. 
3. Best Texture: Sara Happ Vanilla Bean Body Scrub
Silky, not greasy.  Hydrating, not oily. Gentle enough to do no harm and tough enough to remove even the roughest dead skin. The texture feels like tapioca pudding! Made with Kukui nut, macadamia and sweet almond oils that leave zero residue behind and space age-esque sugar crystals (tapioca-like) that are bigger and bolder than your average scrub.  Warning: you may be tempted to eat it!
4. Best Scent: Tocca’s Stella Esfoliante da Corpo, Blood Orange Rich Body Polish
This gentle, moisturizing body scrub contains crushed olive granules to delicately exfoliate dry skin. Rich in natural oils, Tocca’s luxurious formula boasts the emollient and healing properties of Italian olive oil, safflower oil and grape seed oil that leave the skin feeling soft, supple and delicately scented of sweet Italian blood orange.
5. Best For Rough Spots (Feet): Margaret Dabbs Foot Scrub
A scrub tough enough for the thickest skin on your body - your feet. Using Ground Tea Tree Leaf and Pumice, feet can be scrubbed to perfection! You can feel the scrub work to remove the dead layers of skin and replenish moisture using Emu Oil, revealing fresh illuminated skin and nails. You can also use this scrub for your knees, and elbows. 
6. Best In Shower: Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub
A creamy, lightly-foaming body scrub that dramatically smooths, polishes and energizes skin. Refreshing essential oils revitalize the body and awaken the senses. This scrub comes in a squeeze tube making it ideal for showers, as there is no dipping into a tub of scrub with your wet hands and causing the product to go runny. 

7. Best For Sensitive Skin: Sacred Nature Bio-Certified Gommage -  Delicate Face & Body Scrub.
The Sacred Nature Collection is an eco-friendly skincare line created in accordance with the standards defined by ECOCERT®. Surpassing their high standards for organic ingredients and low levels of synthetic additives, all products are completely free of parabens, mineral oil, colouring agents, silicons and synthetic perfumes making this scrub ideal for sensitive skin. 



All products are available for sale in Montreal at Etiket Boutique and online as of March 2012.

10 Must Have Beauty Products for a Flawless Look
Etiket Makeup Expert, Ariane Lemire shares her tips on achieving flawless skin. 
Flawless skin starts with healthy skin. If you are cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating regularly, then you are off to a very good start and will allow for the products in your beauty arsenal to work most effectively.
Take a look at your makeup bag. What’s inside?
Perhaps you have an overwhelming selection of products, when in fact, you only use four or five everyday. It can be difficult to decide what you need most, but there are certain key items that can help ensure skin is smooth, imperfections are diminished and your best features are maximized.
1. A good moisturizer suited to your skin type
A good moisturizer is a must for flawless skin because it preps the skin for makeup application and creates a smooth and hydrated look to your skin. 
Must Have: SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture
2. Foundation or tinted moisturizer with SPF
To create a smooth and even toned complexion, you need a good foundation base that fits your skin type. Gone are the days of heavy paint-like foundations. “Skin Care Makeup” that also protects the skin from the damaging rays of the sun is both beneficial and time saving. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 , Amazing Base Mineral Foundation SPF 20 or Dream Tint SPF 15
3. Concealer
Achieving a flawless complexion can be helped with a good concealer. However, covering the problem is not enough. Choose a concealer that addresses and corrects both temporary imperfections (blemishes and dark under eye circles) and long standing skin concerns like rosacea and hyperpigmentation. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Under-Eye Concealer or Disappear with Green Tea Extract
4. Natural Hair foundation brush and a high quality sponge
Your makeup application tools are just as important as the products themselves. Certain brushes work better with certain foundations. Natural hand-tied brushes work best with mineral powder foundations to ensure even coverage. Professional high quality, latex-free, non-allergenic and odor free sponges provide for a flawless finish when using liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale The Handi Brush or Chisel Powder Brush and Beauty Blender Sponge
5. Gel blush
Natural faces with a touch of colour was a common sight on the Spring 2012 runways, from Michael Kors to Burberry. This means that gel blushes are a must for this season. Gel blushes are easy to apply, gives a pop of colour to the cheeks and keeps the skin looking smooth and luminous. 
Must Have: Per-féct Cheek Perfection Gel
6. Lip Scrub and Lip Balm
Keeping your lips looking smooth, supple and youthful requires regular maintenance, especially in the winter. Exfoliation helps to remove dry, dead skin while naturally plumping your pout. Follow with a rich, glossy and hydrating lip balm. 
Must Have: Sara Happ Lip Scrub and Lip Slip
7. Brow Gel
Well groomed brows can make or break a flawless look. They are the focal point of your face, so keep your brow shape as natural as possible and use a good brow gel to keep them conditioned, tinted and in place. 
Must Have: Per-féct Brow Perfection Gel
8. Safe Self-Tanner
Traditional methods of tanning are no longer an option. Harmful UV rays from the sun are dangerous and speed up the natural aging process dramatically. Luckily, there are some safe alternatives to achieving that sun-kissed glow. Choose a self-tanner that combines serious skin care benefits with a touch of self-tan to gradually build colour every day. 
Must Have: St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Face
9. Portable and easy to apply SPF protection
Weather you are hitting the beach, the slopes or driving around town, SPF protection is vital to maintaining a flawless look. Sun damage can appear at any age, so protect your skin at all times to avoid wrinkles, rough texture, hyperpigmentation, and spots. 
Must Have: Tocca SPF 30+ Towelette Multipack
10. Hydrating mist
Hydrating mists are great to have around any time of the year. Keep one in your beauty bag or purse to set your makeup or hydrate and refresh your skin mid-day. Choose a facial spritz that contains ingredients to help calm the skin and fight free radicals. 
Must Have: Jane Iredale D20 Hydration Spray
