I switched to Dove Dry Spray during fashion week and I haven’t looked back. It’s been a dependable antiperspirant for my day-to-day activities but I hadn’t really put it to the test yet. I recently came back from a business trip in Hong Kong and I figured that the long journey overseas would be a true test for Dove’s claim of 48-hour protection. Before I left, I spritzed Dove Dry Spray in the soft Beauty Finish scent under each arm and packed it away.

Dove Dry Spray Goes the Distance

The flight to Hong Kong from Toronto is 15 hours long, and if you factor in the door to door travel and airport time – I was in transit for 20+ hours. I usually reapply my deodorant mid way through a trek like that, but with Dove Dry Spray, I didn’t have to!

As someone with super sensitive skin, I’m always on the lookout for effective products that won’t irritate my skin or break the bank. Traditional makeup removers can be irritating with alcohol, or cause breakouts with various oils, but the new Simple Skincare Cleansing Micellar Water wipes away impurities without adding additional ones!

Simple Skincare Cleansing Micellar Water

What is micellar water? Micellar waters originated in France and are non-rinse, soap-free cleansing waters that contain micelle molecules. When applied with a cleansing pad, they’re terrific at whisking off makeup as well as cleansing, toning and soothing sensitive skin.

Backstage at World MasterCard Fashion Week, I had the exciting opportunity to have my hair styled by the professionals at Redken Canada. Since I was wearing a Narces dress and would be attending the Narces show, I decided to have them style my hair in the same wau were styling it for the Narces show. I love the old Hollywood glamour look!

I wear my hair wavy/curly most of the time so I figured that this slight variation on my signature look would be easy for me to recreate at home – and I was right!

During World MasterCard Fashion Week, it’s a hustle for me to get ready for the evening shows after a full day of work. As I’m rushing to get ready, the last thing I want to do is wait for my antiperspirant to dry. The innovative new Dove Dry Spray solves that problem and keeps me on time for the shows! It sprays on instantly dry for a fresh and clean feel that lasts for 48 hours. It’s no wonder they appealed to other fast lane fashionistas like me at fashion week this season!

Dove Dry Spray was gifted to all attendees at the David Dixon 20th anniversary show on Day 2 at World MasterCard Fashion Week – I’d already been using it (and loving it) for a week but I was pleased to get some more!

When I was 18 years old, I decided it would be cool to get a lower back tattoo. That was 12 years ago – before the term “tramp stamp” became the taboo nickname for my foolish and oh so permanent decision. Needless to say, I regretted it, but the options for tattoo removal were too expensive and not guaranteed back then. Fortunately, I can hide my tattoo most of the time, and I’ve gotten used to brushing off the odd tramp stamp jab. Now that I’m 31 and I think about being a role model and a Mom one day, I want to get rid of this tattoo more than ever. I was very excited to hear about PicoSure – a new and super effective tattoo removal treatment.

You mean, I don’t have to live with this forever?!

Dr. Sean Rice of Rice Cosmetic Surgery, in Toronto, is the first Plastic Surgeon in Canada to offer tattoo removal treatments with PicoSure. After watching a few of his (many) media interviews, I knew that Dr. Rice would be the right expert to meet with regarding my tattoo.
