SUMMER HAZE | WHY IS DEODORANT SO IMPORTANT..? | M X T C

Hello all you beautiful faces! I’m going to touch base on something you would learn in elementary school and if you really said no to dad when he asked ‘did you put on your deodorant today?’ when we both know…he didn’t then comes home because the kids thought it fun to poke at the easy target! no, no no this is not what happen to me, Hygiene was (is) always important to me! with sumner just around the corner I decided to partner with Vaseline Men to help you understand the different types of deodorant on the market and why it might be right or very wrong for your skin! This also launches my ‘SUMMER HAZE’ category where you can use the drop down menu to find all your summer issues, oh there is one thing, come closer… each issue comes with a with a fix – come on guys you know I wouldn’t leave you hanging!

I want to start off with something simple the different types of deodorant(s) and basically what it is they do for your body other then have boys or girls bring milkshakes to your yard, still don’t get it? yeah, I’m right there with you guys! A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits groin, and feet.

A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Antiperspirants are used on a wider range of body parts, at any place where sweat would be inconvenient or problematic for safety or convenience reasons, since unwanted sweating can interfere with vision, comfort, safety, or slipperiness/grip. I also know that it’s a lot to take in, you think that as you hit puberty all you need is to throw on a deodorant but by the time launch rolls around and it’s time for gym you don’t always feel so great about yourself, so as parents it would be a good thing to insure you watch your children or have them watch you apply your deodorant or antiperspirants.

Vaseline-Men-Extra-Strength-Body-Lotion-1600x1080
The human body produces perspiration (sweat) via two types of sweat gland: eccrine sweat glands which cover much of the skin and produce watery odourless sweat, and apocrine sweat glands in the armpits and groin, which produce a more oily “heavy” sweat containing a proportion of waste proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates, that can be metabolized by bacteria to produce compounds that cause body smells. 

Trust me, I sweat a lot! comes it calms down I’m typically good but I i just happen to leave the house one day and I was with my friend, B, so B and I went past a store and stopped to grab some gum and stuff and on the way out B said hey what about deodorant  and I’m so happy he reminded me because I just happen to grab Vaseline Men Active dry 48h PRODERMA 0% alcohol antiperspirant and I always would just grab a deodorant never thinking that I needed something more, it’s actually funny for two reason one i’ll never be able to replace this since they stopped making it, sadly and also i feel the same way about B, like I just said, I would just grab a deodorant not taking the time to realize that i didn’t want or need a deodorant, and the saddest part is I guess B and Vaseline Men are both discontinued to me.

Moving on guys, hey that’s why so many of you stay isn’t it? My heart is always in my writing so shoppers drug mart is doing a massive summer skin box which comes with all the Vaseline Men products you need! including a shower luffa just for men and what it does to the bottoms of feet lets just say, expect about 20min late because you will loose track of time playing with the one you love!

I wish I could say I was gone due to the fact that I was on vacation while, I could lie to you all, it would not feel right and I owe one more to who I was with to see where we stand otherwise you will read one way or another in a coming feature of ‘LIFE 101’ which I know is more or less popular. I’m unsure how much I want to tell from my point of view or the view point of how I am viewed, if that makes sense. Anyway, as I know you will know, this will be done very differently starting with my acceptance of any and all media relation work and brand trips, and so much more! Secondly I’m going to make sure I am a lot more open about where I will be, I love you all so much and none of us has ever pretended not to know the pain, born out of hate, I seems I created something of a safe place for myself and for you! With June around the corner and my place at Art Basel pressing, I thought I could talk more about travel knock outs!

Wouldn’t it be so easy if all our makeup products that we needed were in a one stop case? Ellis Faas had that vision in mind with her makeup and holder. The holder is an ingenious design where you could mix and match your favorite colors or whatever your mood wants. From holding foundation pen to powder compact, blush, eyeshadow, concealer, lipstick and even more. It brings a small view of the future of makeup, 

e06bb0eba45f89897833d305d4ee4b5115abf8e2
It’s very handy.
You can put all your favourite Ellis Faas pistols make up in a silver holder with mirror and a matting powder. Bye make up bags! The visuals that show the massive line up of pistols to that can be bought separately are just beautiful and very smart from a brands stand point. Along with being sent the main component which is the face pistol which comes with two holders, from the success of the launch of the product they launches the veils in full sized SKU’s so I was kindly sent one of those as well. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Sadly my powder came shattered via transit so i cannot comment on the value of the product mentioned but I am able to say it’s very pleasing on the eyes, and many wouldn’t even think to utilize the space

Ellis Faas’ products are made with the most intricate design. Her whole line of makeup all the way to the holder seem to be very organized. Having the ability to put everything you need in a holder that is not only sleek, it is also for easy on the go access as well. Not to say it makes a perfect center piece for any vanity table. Ellis Faas’ holder and makeup are perfect gifts for your loved ones and yourself. It’s a whole set that looks very luxurious and fancy. One of the more enjoyable things, as you twist from the bottom what you desire pops up using a little spring device within, just the final thought to bring such a neat idea to life.

Thanks to my beautiful friend who allowed me to test the mascara, liquid eyeliner and such I can safely say that these are effortless which if you’re in a rush to go to work or just don’t want much with you on travels – you will have good quality that lasts, mascara was applied at 9:00am and wasn’t taken off until almost 1:00am and there was no flaking or smudge. I can’t say that I’m shocked!

Please note this will have a follow up post!

The sad truth is whether you’re jet-setting across the globe or just a few hours away, airplane cabins have a major impact on your skin ➡️ flights zap the moisture straight from our faces, leaving us with duller complexions, tightness, and even irritation, dermatologist Elena Poulos of Toronto, ON told MXTC. The main point I am trying to make is that it doesn’t matter if you’re spending an hour or twelve hours the results will be the same, damage to your major organ.

IN BLOOM – CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC AWAY COLLECTION WITH A TWIST | M X T C

Finally I got my MacBook back (though I do find myself getting stuck on the command and control key) from the Microsoft Chrome challenge, wow it took a little bit longer with shipping it back to me and everything like that, it also got stuck in customs for a very long time, but I’m going to break out the similarities and big differences between the two powerful computers in a coming post! I’ve also decided that any post that is for spring beauty, or new spring launches i will call ‘IN BLOOM’ which just seemed to be, just fitting too me! How are you boys and girls doing? I truly hope that you are all doing well, in Canada central Canada the weather has been pretty good! Not to cold but thankful not to hot! Who you rather it be hot? or cold? or just fall all year round but we had a week of peak sumner heat!

I don’t know why but I seem always over look Charlotte Tilbury! i remember going to a press event for he line coming into Holt Renfrew in Toronto on Bloor St. I wasn’t really liking the feel mind you Faulhaber Communications who was organizing this whole event and you can quote me on this, I truly think there is no better PR Agency in Canada then Faulhaber – they just do things one step on the game! But anyways a PR agency is not why we are here Charlotte Tilbury is, I just have to say how on the website its all ” hello darling “ it truly is iconically Charlotte, after meeting her now when I read the names or read a paragraph,  I can literally her her saying it, it’s wonderful! 

If you were to buy one thing for Charlotte Tilbury it should be the Magic Away Concealer and heres why honestly the Magic Concealer is like spanx for your eyes as much as that sounds, its completely true! it spreads itself out so thin but there is so much pigment and added benefits to it –  is an incredible full coverage liquid concealer in a netural shade for all skin tones and undertones. For five years, Charlotte Tilbury has been working on this holy grail of concealers that reduces the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly!

Charlotte-Tilbury-x-complexion-collection-x-rubric

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you think that this concealer was not 5 years in the making you are wrong! we would get yearly updated from who handle CT PR either the USA or Canada firm.

Next would be Charlotte’s Unisex Healthy Glow which is a hydrating tint – it’s not as full if  a hydrant as a tinted moisturizer, I would recommend putting a little of a stronger hydrator around your nose, chin, between the brows and centre of the forehead to give it that BAM This fabulous unisex cream is SO natural, no one will suspect you’re wearing it! and its so true so who else to try it on but my boyfriend who actually still wears it to date within his skin care regime, it really does just even out the skin with just enough coverage with a hit of bronze that you wouldn’t really expect. It kinda reminds of the Recipe For Men Bronze cream which does the similar thing ➡️ if not the exact same only its made to work more with mens skin and testosterone and such – which when you’re a man it’s nice to have those options without calling it ‘makeup’ and when I say if you’re a man I mean it as a guy who doesn’t wear makeup or know the world of makeup; plain and simple!

➡️ Next on my would be the Goddess Ritual Cleanser Duo from Charlotte Tilbury it’s absolutely one of my must have for cleaners ➡️ I always say that cleansers are a grey area, many disagree with me but it’s true, I don’t think there is enough time used to be able to make a difference within the skin, I’m not saying that they don’t do anything because they do, but what follows after cleansing your skin us where you will see the most benefits until trying this ➡️ Deeply purifying, super-charged cleansing duo for fresh, radiant-looking skin just make sure if you have blemish prone skin watch out for large doses of vitamin c sometimes with some skin it can have a negative effect! Sadly I know this all to well!

WHAT DOES YOUR SKIN SAY ABOUT YOU AND YOUR HEALTH | RECANTATION | M X T C

What’s going on boys and girls – I’ve had it with some brands, I really need to press that just because products are sent to me or I am paid to review and advertise something does not mean I will go and say lies about the product, I have to say, I give skin care and some makeup items a good two weeks, before I write a review. With a recent paid review (SERUM C | M X T C) I didn’t give it that long because I figured it’s just a suspended vitamin c, treatment strength, serum. I just have to say that, I should have gave it the two weeks because I ended up having a massive reaction to the product, with using Serum C I cut out all my skin care and used just a basic moisturizer with my eye products – I got the worst burns on my forehead, cheek and chin and no it was not a break out or anything like that, I thought that at first and I understand that so treatments like this can cause the skin to become ‘worse’ before it gets better, the worst part about it, is I get a damn press release which is information in extreme details and it didn’t say anything about a warning, it’s not the vitamin c it’s how it is suspended that makes it kind of dangerous for the skin without being micro needled  please google it if you don’t understand what I am talking about, the worst part about it when I showed pictures to the brand, and talked about what happen they just didn’t care, and they were not shocked. Did I mention Serum C comes with a $200.00 price tag, I’ve learned to understand different signs from my body using my skin that something isn’t right, inside and out, you should also.

There are 3 things people will first notice about you, eyebrows, skin and teeth, with out a doubt someone will make a impression about you based on those 3 things especially in the judgment world we live in today – your skin is the most noticeable part of your body. And it can play a major role in telling you about your health. Rashes, acne (spots), bruising, and more can all indicate potential health problems you may want to look into.

I know this 1 will be nothing new to you but stress, when you’re under emotional stress, whether it’s from a job or another life situation, your body reacts physically. If you’ve noticed breakouts on your skin but don’t believe it’s due to your diet or age, then it may be stress-related. Take a step back to find out what is causing the stress in your life, you have to try to calm down and cut the stress out because in most cases people will start to treat it like active acne throwing benzoyl peroxide and all kinds of chemicals thinking it will help the situation which typically causes irritation, loss of hydration and extra sebum creation and in return causes your skin to fighting back and it becoming worse which in return just makes you more stressed about your appearance.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ This is really important to remember, in most cases acne and irritation from stress is large, red, and 99.9% of the time very sore, you shouldn’t try to pop it but if you do you will find out that, it typically will not pop. As fast as it came typically over night is as fast as it will start to settle down and tone down, in as little as three days it will be almost completely gone, Try putting some Witch Hazel and Vitamin E cream on it or take Vitamin A orally, for no more than 3 days. For more facts about Vitamin A click here.

Water helps your body sustain normal functions. When you’re not hydrated, your skin will show it. Your skin might become dry and look dull; you won’t have the glow you’d normally have if you kept yourself hydrated. While dull skin might not seem like the worst thing, being dehydrated is terrible for your body. The amount of water you should be drinking each day varies per person, but you should generally aim for around 64 ounces daily. I truly cannot stress just how important it is for your body to be hydrated, I don’t drink pop and only drink real juices and it’s not like I’m punishing myself, it’s because I just don’t like pop or overly fake sweet drinks. Next time stick with water, your teeth will thank you also.

HYDRATION
Any kind of rash, hives, or red skin could mean you’re having some kind of allergic reaction. It may not be as dangerous as anaphylaxis (which often results in difficulty breathing, swollen eyes, and potentially deadly health problems), but it still isn’t something that should be taken lightly. If you’re taking a new antibiotic, make sure to check around your body and look for any sign of hives or rash that could mean you’re allergic to the drug or said ingredient. The same thing is to be said for some active ingredients in some skin care can interfere with medication or make you ill without even knowing it when it is absorbed into the skin.  If you notice anything, stop taking it and talk to your doctor or contact the company for more information about an ingredient as they have to disclose any and all information.

Another thing to look out for and I actually did have this happen to me, there is a massive difference between being pale and being almost white, if you notice you skin a little on the white, semi grey side, it would be wise to talk to your doctor and get a blood work panel done to determine if your anemic. There are different types of anemia and treatable with some vitamins. Make sure you pay attention to what your body is telling you.

It’s so easy to do it, and I love, love, love how they do the layout ➡️ 
you choose if you want, briefs, jockstrap, boxer briefs or random! Then you get to choose another style that you would like from the same categories (I really recommend trying random for one choice since, it will introduce you to new undies you wouldn’t think you like and trust me, your friend will thank you for the support!) then you choose your size which I’m pretty sure we all know our underwear size! (you even get your waist sized to inches in that helps)  Simple no? I think so!

I couldn’t be more happy! I’m very excited to talk about this product because it will be in the spring giveaway, which the end date was given in my previous post (COVETED TOP 5 : NARS | M X T C) I like this! hiding the easy way to win this amazing set, and I can promise of this items you wouldn’t be able to get if it wasn’t for this fully partnered and sponsored giveaway so there are some rules, and without saying – you know where you’ll find them.

➡️ Just in case you didn’t know the same woman who invented ZIIP Beauty also came out with the same to a very exspensive skin care line, for example the Serum C is $200.00US and found wherever exspensive skin care is sold! I was sent two bottles on for me, and one for the giveaway and after just one use – wow.

GIVEAWAY SIDE NOTE ➡️ if you think that you found the clues and the end day, and what you have to do to enter the giveaway just sent me a DM on Instagram and I will let you know if you’re correct. Even if you’re not, you will still be entered +1 but if you are right you’ll get you will be entered +5

When Melanie Simon began using this potent, highly concentrated, highly stabilized vitamin C serum on her clients, she saw results she had never seen before. Pores tightened, fine lines vanished, redness subsided, skin tone brightened, and the glow was surreal. Clients started asking to take home this magic in a bottle, so Melanie prepared take-home potions and stamped a C on them with her wax seal.

Great for all skin types, vitamin C is the star ingredient because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage. Plus, unlike most vitamin C products, Melanie’s is incredibly stable and can withstand light and air exposure. That’s why it’s safe and active even in its clear bottle.

➡️ START WITH A DRY CANVAS
Wash your face, pat dry. If you use toners and thin serums, apply those, and let them dry first. Now it’s Serum C time.

➡️ APPLY 5 TO 10 DROPS OF SERUM C
Basically, you want to use enough so that you can cover your entire face and neck. Lightly sweep Serum C around your face and up the neck, avoiding the eye area.

➡️ WAIT 5 TO 10 MINUTES
Serum C works wonders, but it doesn’t play nicely with other active skincare ingredients. Give it time alone to do its job and create a glaze on your skin. You’ll know when it’s time to move on, because Serum C will no longer feel slippery to the touch. I like to wait the full 10 minutes. I make a cup of tea, and get my clothes ready for the day. What would you do in these 10 minutes?

➡️ CONTINUE YOUR ROUTINE
For some people,
Serum C is the last step in their skincare routine. If your skin needs more hydration, layer on your other products, always applying from thinnest to thickest.

This truly was a game changer in the terms of the strength of the product and what it does for my skin, this one bottle took the place of almost 4 jars and bottles, truly it is only my second day using this product but the results you see fast, and you know they will last.

It helps with everything that I am currently looking for from my skin care right now, and I’m not going too  lie I kind of stopped using my ZIIP for no other reason then I’m just so busy and tired at night doing the entire skin routine plus the skin would be like 20 minutes which really isn’t that bad if you think about for skin that’s well, perfect. I need to get back to that for sure.

I’m excited for who ever wins the giveaway just to receive this one product! So good luck and don’t forget all you need to know is in past posts. If you can read between the lines you’re golden. I’m also capping it at 5 people. so they have a really good chance to win!
