Time Saving Beauty Products

‘Tis the season to be…busy.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look fantastic while you’re running around like a chicken with her head cut off.   Here are 3 great time saving beauty products that we’re adding to our bag of tricks this holiday season to keep us looking (if not feeling) as bright as a sunny, snow day.

Mèreadesso All-In-One Moisturizer.  $120.00  Available on-line at

This amazing product is the beauty equivalent of one-stop shopping:  it’s a day cream, night cream, eye cream, serum and primer in one gorgeous bottle.  Creator Linda Stephenson used her background in chemistry, biology and botany to come up with this formula of 16 botanical extracts, eight minerals and enzymes and more than 20 antioxidants.  My Mom uses this and her skin has never looked better.  Bonus: it’s Canadian.



L’Oreal Preference Mousse Absolue  Available at Rexall $19.99
If you do your own hair colour, this may be the product you’ve been dreaming of.  Mousse Absolue is the first ready-to-use, reusable hair colour .  Yes, reusable.  The revolutionary canister keeps the ingredients separate until you need that emergency root touch-up or (if you have short hair) a second complete application.  Excellent  grey coverage in 14 designer shades.

LOreal-Paris-Preference-Mousse-AbsolueTory Burch Lip & Cheek Tint in Cat’s Meow.  $38.00  Available on line and at Tory Burch Yorkdale.

Tuck this one into your purse for easy access when you need a little boost of colour. Cat’s Meow is a hint of rosy pink colour for your cheeks and your lips.  Natural -looking and  designed to go with a wide range of skin tones, this one’s a keeper.
