My Collaboration with “Coco Lime Apparel”

Good morning my beauts, I hope you are all doing fantastic so far, and having a wonderful Tuesday! Hey, you made it through Monday so that’s a good thing! I have been busy yet again doing collaborations with new companies which I absolutely adore and love! I don’ even know what else I would be doing if it wasn’t for blogging, to be honest! Blogging is what I love doing, and I love modelling clothing for you beauts! Also, if you are not following me on Instagram be sure to do so at @alyssahotrum_xo.

I have some recent exciting news for you beauts, on my channel I will soon be featuring men’s fashion modelled by my boyfriend Dayten Pottruff who can be seen in some of my pictures on Instagram. I am super excited and can not wait to show you guys the final product! So stay tuned! So recently I collaborated with a beautiful company called, “Coco Lime Apparel” who I found on Instagram one day. I reached out to the company as I absolutely loved their page and spoke to the Co-Founder of the company, Courtney Braddock. She was so pleasant and sweet to talk to I absolutely enjoyed our chatting!  While looking on her website for her company, there were so many unique and different styles that caught my attention right off the bat.

Coco Lime Apparel picks out items with unique style that will fit everyone’s taste, and I absolutely adore this. Coco Lime Apparel is an online boutique, and trust me beauts, the outfits are absolutely STUNNING. Simply flawless. So I know you beauts are dying to know a little bit about the company! Courtney states, “hi, I’m Courtney “Coco”. I started Coco Lime Apparel simply for the love of clothing and the diverse styles that I’m able to offer my customers for every unique taste. Coco Lime Apparel offers seasonal items and casual everyday items. A little background on how I came up with Coco Lime Apparel- my nickname is “Coco” and I absolutely LOVE lime on practically every food item, thus Coco Lime was born. A little background on me- I’ve worked in retail throughout high school and college and am aware that customer service and quality is as valuable as the clothing I offer. I’m able to bring that to my own business to serve new customers and returning customers too. I hope you LOVE my website! Happy Shopping Coco’s!”. I absolutely love the background information about this company, that is adorable!!

I checked out the website and was blown away by how many items I would wear. It was so hard to pick just one, as I fell in love with every single one. I finally had my heart set on one outfit in particular that I adored! I absolutely loved this item called, “Kai Romper Maxi” which retails in store for $35.00. I was blown away by how stunning this was and could not wait to receive it in the mail! Once I received it in the mail, it literally took my breath away! My photographer Dayten Pottuff, who is my boyfriend, was absolutely speechless. Like he had to gather his thoughts! I loved it.

I also received this beautiful card from Courtney which I loved! Cards from my companies that I work with means so much to me, they are so personal and beautiful… I love them so much so thank you Courtney! Absolutely beautiful!

I highly highly recommend checking out Coco Lime Apparel and checking out Courtney’s page! There are so many gorgeous outfits located on the website, perfect for summer and spring weather. I love how it shows a little bit of leg, it’s the perfect amount of classy and sexy at the same time. Be sure to tag Coco Lime Apparel in your Instagram pictures to be featured! I want to personally take the time to thank Coco Lime Apparel for allowing me to collaborate with their beautiful company!

My Collaboration with “Gmyle Phone Cases”

Hey there beauts, and welcome to my channel if you are new! My names Alyssa, and I appreciate you beautiful souls stopping by. I have been super busy lately with a new blogging opportunity that came my way recently! I will be discussing this more in detail when it comes to my next blog post down the road so stay tuned! I am still doing collaborations with companies which I absolutely love, and I know you beauts look forward to seeing which company I am going to work with next! I came across an amazing company on Instagram called “Gmyle” that sells accessories and gadgets. I absolutely loved their page it completely caught my eye. I was extremely interested in the phone cases as I absolutely am hooked on cool and intriguing phone cases lately! Their brand is proud to design good gadgets to make your life easier. The company is dedicated to enhancing your style and life with their cases, covers, gadgets and so forth. While browsing and looking on their website, there is so much to offer and look at! Straight away I went to the phone cases for my iPhone 7 and did my browsing. I then reached out to the company asking if they were interested in a collaboration.  They were more than happy to do a collaboration with me and send me a phone case which was awesome! Let the browsing begin! I wanted something unique and different, something I didn’t have before. I came across this one phone case which I absolutely loved and it was called, “Snap Case Dual (Bones Pattern) for Apple iPhone 7/8″, in my case my iPhone 7.  There were about 3-4 different bones patterns to choose from and I really liked this one skull with flowers on the head. I do not own anything like this before, and wanted something unique and different, with a “badass” kind of vibe to it!

I absolutely love the look of this case, it is see-through which I love, and I love the design on the cover as well! If you are wanting to be stylish, and have a bad ass vibe, I highly recommend checking out this case for your phone! This retails for $19.98 in store.  So this was the case that I picked out for my phone, thank you so much Gmyle for the lovely case! I also noticed on the website there are so many other categories of cases to choose from and there are even beautiful colours for your Macbooks if you have one! (aka, I need to purchase one for myself one day for sure).

Gmyle was also super generous and sent me another phone case as a surprise gift which was amazing of them. I received this beautiful marble design phone case which I had my eye on as well. It’s like they knew exactly what I would like and want! Amazing!  This case is called, “Snap Case Light (Marble Pattern) for iPhone 7″ which retails for $19.98 in store.  I think this case looks super chic and is super stylish as well. It is hard to choose which case I love the most because I absolutely adore both cases!

I want to take the time to personally thank Gmyle for allowing me to collaborate and work with their company, you beauts are amazing! Come check out their amazing collection of gadgets, cases and covers… was so hard to choose which one I wanted to model for you guys! Be sure to come spread some love on their page as well at “gmyle_us”, and come check out my other social media sites located on my homepage for more blogs to come in the near future! Take care and have a beautiful day, much love xo.

My Collaboration with “Kroma” Phone Cases !

Good morning my beauts, and welcome to my channel if you are new! My names Alyssa and I have been blogging for several years now, it’s my favourite hobby by far. I absolutely love doing collaborations with companies and meeting new people on Instagram and all over the world. I have been busy working away as a nanny and have been focusing on new collaborations with different companies. I recently came across a company on Instagram which offered new items then I am used to collaborating with. This company specializes in lifestyle accessories for women, and little pick me ups for the everyday. The company offered changeable backplates for your phone which is super easy to change for any occasion.  Not going to lie, I had to ask Joanne, a lady who I spoke from the Company, about the cases and how they worked. I only ever used normal phone cases and was not used to a changeable backing and a frame, but once I received the cases in the mail, they were super easy to work with and change as well for any occasion.  The company who I reached out to is called, “Kroma“, and Joanne was a pleasure to speak to and work with. She was super down to earth, and very friendly as well. At Kroma, they celebrate diversity, and they also encourage everyone to embrace their own definition of beauty, style and fashion which is amazing, I absolutely love this. At Kroma, there are core values that are represented, these values include:

Diversity– Allow for self-expression and embrace the inclusion of different types of people.

Empowerment– Empower yourself and give strength to others.

Creativity  Keep an open mind and use our imagination to create innovative designs and products.

Sustainability Consider the environment, waste generated and human health.

Want to know a fun fact about KromaCases? They are baby, toddler and kid proof! These phone cases can withstand the everyday drops, smashes and knocks by children. I absolutely love this considering I am a nanny and I am always around children especially a 10-month-old baby girl who enjoys throwing my phone around when she gets the chance, and placing my phone in her mouth…. yummy! But Kroma didn’t stop there, the phone cases meet FDA food-grade standards and they are completely free of Bisphenol F (BPF) and phthalates.  Kroma phone cases passed the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety test for food contact. As well as the European Union’s ROHS guideline, Apple’s Regulated Substances Specification, and California’s Proposition 65 Standards. Also, SGS tests were involved to ensure that Kroma cases are 100% free of chemicals and metal potentially toxic to humans, such as BPA, BPS, BPF, phthalates, led an mercury.

Now, I know what you beauts are thinking, what the heck is BPA, because honestly, I had no idea. BPA is a chemical that is found in many different plastic products and it causes many different harmful effects on humans such as on the brain, and behaviour of fetuses, infants and children. So this is honestly something that I had no idea about and would’ve never known, but using Kroma cases makes me feel much better about everything and knowing it’s not harming me or people who come into contact with my phone.

Something else that I found really neat about the Kroma phone cases is that they are powered by Rhinoshield which is known for providing maximum impact protection with a minimalist footprint, this is amazing. I don’t know about you beauts but I am known for dropping my phone all the time, so these cases are so ideal for me. I absolutely love mine. The material for the phone cases is super lightweight and super thin which is awesome.

Cleaning your Kroma Case

It is always such a pain trying to clean your phone case, and not get it dirty with greasy hands and what not. Thank goodness it is super easy to clean your Kroma phone case! First, you simply are going to clean your frame. Simply use a light alcohol based cleaner not too long after the staining occurs. However, avoid using the alcohol-based solvents too often as this could over time degrade the coating.

Next, you are going to clean your backplates, which can be easily cleaned with water. Try not to use any alcohol based solvents on the backplates when cleaning. That’s it. How easy is that! I love it. Also if you go to their website, you can see and read different reviews from individuals who have purchased these cases, which is great.

Receiving the cases in the mail

I was so excited to receive my 3 phone cases and frame in the mail from Kroma! It honestly did not take long at all, and I absolutely love all the styles that I chose. If you beauts now me well enough I absolutely love my bows and ribbon designs.  There were so many beautiful and gorgeous designs to chose from on their website such as different classic prints floral textures, folk flavors, and ribbons and bows.  You get to chose what type of phone you have and the design you wish to purchase. The first design that I chose is called, “Eighty-Eight” which reminds me of a corset for your phone, absolutely adorable. You also get to choose what colour frame you want for your phone as well. I went with classic black for all of my backplates. This retails for, $40.00 with the frame included.

( so adorable, I can’t even deal)

The other case that I received from Kroma was this gorgeous bow case, which is honestly my favourite out of the bunch.  I love the two slouchy bows, I currently have this one on my phone at the moment and I am just loving it.  Again, I chose the black frame, and this retails for $40.00.  Just look how adorable this is. This one is called, “Sylphina Angel”.

The last one I have to show you beauts reminds me of the Spring which I adore. I love happy and cheerful cases, they literally brighten up your day, especially on Mondays that’s for sure! This case is called the ” Tulle”, and I think it is absolutely stunning. There were so many floral designs to chose from which was great, but this one stood out to me the most. Again this retails for $40.00 including the backplate and frame. If you just want the backplate that retails for $15.00.

(so happy and cheery and colourful, I absolutely love it)

I want to personally take the time to thank Kroma for allowing me to collaborate with their company and work with them, I absolutely am in love with my phone cases and can honestly say these are the most stylish cases I have ever owned for my phone. It was a pleasure working with your company, you guys are wonderful people, and I highly recommend checking out their Instagram page over at “getkroma”, come spread some love over there! Literally, you will spend like an hour like I did creeping all the different designs for phone cases, there was a crap ton and I loved every second of it.  Also be sure to head on over to my homepage and follow my other social media accounts for more blog posts to come in the near future.

My Collaboration with “Red Fox Candle”

Good morning my beauts! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend filled with lots of love, family time, happiness and maybe a bit of partying in there?  I had a wonderful weekend, as I got to go to my hometown where my parents live and spend time with them which was wonderful. We had an early Christmas dinner at my dad’s house which was lovely, and it is always nice seeing my cousin, aunt, uncle, sisters, and grandparents.  I love family time, as I am a very family-orientated person. I think family is one of the closest people that you have to you, and it is so important to make time for them in your busy lives, even if it’s only for a short period of time.  I find that spending time with the family reduces my anxiety a ton, it’s relaxing and a calming atmosphere as well. You want to know what else calms my anxiety? Candles. I am a candleholic if I do say so myself. I absolutely love candles, and I find they are huge stress-relievers that’s for sure. I am always on the hunt for candle companies on Instagram and love meeting new people. I came across a cute candle company that makes 100% soy wax candles which are hand poured in Surrey. This candle company is called “Red Fox Candle”, and I contacted Silvia, the owner. She was honestly such a sweetheart and was more than happy to collaborate with me and let me review some of her candles.

Silvia states, “The reason why I’ve called my brand “Red Fox” is because I love foxes. I think they’re beautiful animals( I wish I could look like one!). I also feel very connected to nature and this is why my candles are 100% natural and vegan-friendly.” Silvia goes on to take care of every aspect of the candle making process, from melting the wax at the right temperature to hand pour and decorating the jars. That is great Silvia, you are doing such a wonderful and beautiful job! The candles look unreal and would make absolute great presents.

I had the wonderful opportunity to review one of her Christmas candles which are called, “Merry Morning”. This candle retails for $10.95 and is hand blended with a fusion of citrus, orange and warm cinnamon, clove and ginger. It smells absolutely unreal and beautiful. Really does capture the scent of Christmas and puts you right into the Christmas spirit.

The next candle that I received in my package from Red Fox Candle was the scent “English Lavender” which retails for $10.95 in store, and it includes the lovely scent of fresh Lavender. If one thing is for sure, it’s that I absolutely love the smell of fresh Lavender, it is so calming, refreshing and is amazing when you’re slowly starting to wind down for bed. It is cozy and is perfect smelling right by the Christmas tree. I absolutely love these two scents, they are unreal and I highly recommend trying these out for yourself!

I also love the concept and design of the fox on the label, it’s a lovely and personal touch which is fantastic. I highly recommend checking out Red Fox Candle and Silvia’s Instagram page at “theredfoxcandle“, and click on the link within her bio to check out her Etsy shop. I want to take the time to personally thank Silvia for allowing me to work with her company and review some of her gorgeous candles, I absolutely love them and have one lit right now while typing this blog post up and looking out at the snow falling from the sky, which is so cozy and homey.  Come spread and show some love on her page! Also use my coupon code “ALY15” for 15% off your purchase ! This is valid until January 7th!

Borderline Personality Disorder- Chit Chat & Mental Health Update

Hey there my beauts, Alyssa here with a mental health chit chat with me blogging post. As you beauts know I always share my mental health updates with you guys, I am not ashamed of having some illnesses, in fact, I share them with you guys to give you a better understanding of my life, and maybe help someone else out there who is dealing with the same thing as me. I recently have been going through a bit of a rough patch lately and it is because of some underlying issues that have risen up.  I have been taking medication for my anxiety which is a normal thing for me, and have bee taking another pill which I thought was for mood swings. I stopped taking this pill for a little while, on my own terms, which was not the greatest idea and my mood and anxiety has taken a dramatic dip and fall. As you beauts may have known I have recently had a retail job that I really liked a lot. I have never worked in retail before and it was all new to me, but my coworkers and boss were wonderful to work with. I recently have only been working a few shifts when my anxiety took a turn for the worst one morning before one of my morning shift I physically could not go to work. I simply had a huge knot in my chest, my chest was also super tight and my nerves were unbearable.  I was crying and crying and simply could not gather myself together. Needless to say, I called into work and stated that I simply could not do this job at the moment due to my extreme heightened anxiety. Luckily, my boss understood my situation and was there to offer me the support. I hate disappointing people and felt like I had let her down a ton, but I knew in my head I needed some help and my mental health came first. I saw the doctor that same day, explaining what had happened, and she asked if I was taking all of my medication which I was not. She explained again what my medication was for, and explained that the one I thought was just for my mood swings was for “Borderline Personality Disorder“. I was shocked. I had no idea what this meant, and I literally thought to myself, “oh great… another illness to add to my collection“. She explained to me that it was not a disease, that in fact, 25% of people have this and it is quite normal. This made my anxiety ease up and I knew I was going to be okay. My doctor informed me that you just have to work on this. I was surprised that the psychiatrist did not inform me what the pill was, but at least now I know and can educate myself a bit better on it.

She also informed me that just like my social anxiety meetings I attended every Wednesday, there were Borderline Personality Disorder meetings that I could attend and I am going to do just that. Why not better myself. I am going to be recording and blogging about the sessions for you guys, to inform you and educate you about my progress. Not only am I doing this for you guys, I am doing it so I can reflect on it myself if I need to. It helps to see how far you have come and the progress you are making. This will be later on down the road,  but I will keep you beauts updated when I start the sessions and know more about them. So I know what some of you may be thinking, what the heck is Borderline Personality Disorder?  It is a mental illness that centres on the inability to manage emotions effectively. The disorder occurs in the context of relationships; sometimes all relationships are affected, sometimes only one. This usually begins during early adolescence or early adulthood which would explain my situation. There are several traits of symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder that I found on the internet for you beauts, these include:

  1. unstable relationships
  2. unclear or unstable self-image
  3. impulsive, self-destructive behaviours
  4. self-harm
  5. extreme emotional swings
  6. chronic feelings of emptiness
  7. explosive anger
  8. fear of abandonment
  9. feeling supicious or out of touch with reality

Of course, people who have this illness do not need to necessarily have all of these symptoms, I personally do not. What truly fascinated me was that this disorder is rarely diagnosed on its own. Common co-occurring disorders that I have myself include an anxiety disorder and my eating disorder. So that really made a lightbulb go off when I found that out. Luckily, there are different ways that I can work on treating this illness in three steps. The first is calming the emotional storm, the second is learning to control impulsivity and tolerate distress, and lastly improve your interpersonal skills.

I am hoping that all of these are taught within my classes that I am going to be involved with so I can learn these different strategies and better myself as an individual. One of the interesting things that I had researched about this disorder is that people who have it are often indecisive, and that is me to a T, which is crazy. One thing I also found crazy was people who have this disorder often have difficulty maintaining stable jobs, which is what had happened to me with my last job. Often people who have this experience strong feelings of anxiety, worry and depression (I can highly relate to the anxiety part of all of this for sure). So even though I have this disorder, it does not define who I am as an individual, just something I need to work on an conquer. I know that nothing is impossible, there is always help out there and you are never alone, ever. There are always proper resources there to help you get through difficult times and situations. I am just happy to have found this out now so I can do something about it and move forward with my life. Even though I have an eating disorder, an anxiety disorder and borderline personality disorder, I am still Alyssa. I am still me. I am no different than someone else who isn’t suffering from a mental illness, I just have to work a bit harder than others and that is okay. I am not ashamed of who I am, I am proud of who I am as an individual and how far I have come in life. I have come this far, and I am not about to turn back now. Please feel free to reach out to your doctor, loved ones, or friends if you feel you are struggling. You are not alone. I hope you beauts enjoyed this little update and chit-chat on mental health, be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my homepage for more blogs in the near future! Take care.

How I started the process of collaborating with different companies!

Hey there beauts! It’s me Alyssa and I’m here today not actually discussing a company in which I am working with and collaborating with but rather how I started the whole process! I have been asked this question several times now whether it be, ” how do you get so many products?”, or ” how do you approach companies ?”. I started blogging several years ago, and focused mainly on beauty products as well as makeup tutorials. I saw a couple people that I knew on Instagram posting where they were collaborating and working with companies and that honestly sparked my interest. I wanted to work with companies and get my name out there for sure! I knew this would be a great opportunity for me, especially since I am just starting to get out there into the industry. I actually did a bit of research on collaborations and working with companies, understanding how to reach out to them and what not! I actually had no idea how to approach companies and wanted to do it the right way. I researched different advice that other bloggers were giving to their viewers and incorporating and using this for myself. I decided to finally give it a go one day and come up with a paragraph basically explaining who I was, what I blogged about and a little bit why I am reaching out to their company. I basically made a template which I was going to follow when reaching out to companies. The outline that I follow and say states,

“Hello! My names Alyssa I am a beauty /fashion/ lifestyle blogger/influenced and I am always looking to do reviews or model products. I am from Hamilton Ontario. I was wondering if you wanted to do a collaboration with me on some of your products and have them featured on my blog ❤️My link is located in my bio if you wish to check out my blogging channel! Much love xo💕”

It gets right to the point, states where I am from, what type of blogger I am, as well as why I am reaching out. I find this is a really respectable way to reach out to companies and is super friendly as well. Being a blogger and reaching out to people, you get two different kinds of people. You get people and companies who are all for it and would love the help and promoting, and you get the companies who want nothing to do with you. If companies do not want the help you simply thank them for reaching back out to you and go about your day. You can’t let things get to you, that’s one thing about being a blogger is you have to have thick skin. I am fortunate enough to not have experienced a lot of negativity on my blog yet, but that could change you never know! Just have to be prepared for it! You just focus on what you are promoting or giving advice on and that’s it, you simply do you. Not everyone is going to like your work and it’s that simple. That’s what I tell myself and I move on from there!

I specifically send this paragraph to companies that I know I am interested in promoting, looking for companies that send out great messages to their clients, and I know my viewers would love. I am always keeping all of these things in mind when I am blogging and looking for companies to work with. I then wait to hear back from companies and see if they need the extra promoting and help! I have met so many wonderful people through companies and and reaching out to businesses. There are so many beautiful people from all around the world and you get to build and make so many friendships! It’s honestly not about getting products but it’s about their reactions and the companies’ reactions when I am done and finished my blog. I love that rewarding feeling, there is nothing better than that I think anyways!

I absolutely love what I do! I wouldn’t change my hobby for the world, it is super rewarding and I get to make so many friendships and memories. I love every single product I have received and I am always completely honest for my reviews on my channel. I always put 110% into each and every one of my blogs, ensuring they are very detailed! One thing I am so proud of myself for doing is taking the step to reach out to companies and put myself out there, it’s not an easy thing to do. But you never know unless you don’t try! I wouldn’t be where I am today if I stayed quiet and shy. I love collaborating with companies, it has built up my confidence and allowed me to put myself out there , letting others know about my blog! I can say I am very proud of myself.

I hope this post has helped you beauts or anyone wanting to start collaborating with different companies. Remember to be confident in what you are doing and passionate about your hobby. It may get you somewhere one day !  Be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my homepage for upcoming blogs in the near future! Take care!

My Collaboration with Vichy Canada

My Collaboration with Vichy Canada


Hello my beauts, thank you for stopping by and welcome to my channel! So as you all are aware skincare is so important and having a proper routine helps out so much. I have always been really bad when it came to skincare, and really just did not care so much about my skin. My skin is super sensitive so I really have not found any proper products that have worked for me lately. My skin is acne prone, unfortunately, and I tend to break out all along my chin area as well as around my mouth which is super annoying!! I am always on the hunt for new skincare products! I have had the wonderful opportunity and I am so grateful that Vichy Canada allowed me to partner up with their beautiful company and collaborate with them. I have always admired Vichy Canada for the longest time and knew I had to reach out to them. They were such lovely people to get in touch with and I could tell right away they were very welcoming.  I had messaged them on Instagram, and they sent my request to their PR agency. Within a couple of hours, Vichy Canada had sent me an email asking for my mailing address and so forth. It only took a couple of days until I received a box with 4 beautiful full-size products in it to review and share with you beauts. I am not going to lie this is the first time I have ever tried Vichy before, and I am beyond impressed with the results. I have tested out all of the products for you guys, and have been using them for a couple of days now. I am already seeing results when it comes to my face and how much my acne has gone down, it’s incredible. Not going to lie I was a little hesitant when I received the products because they are not scent free and my face is extremely sensitive. To my surprise and amazement, my face has not broken out once and it has completely calmed my acne 100%. I am going to review some products from the new Idealia Line for you beauts, and can not wait to share my results with you beauts!


First, I am going to discuss with you beauts the new “Smoothness & Glow- Energizing Cream” which has Blueberry Polyphenois and Fermented Black Tea Extract in it as well. This cream is for sensitive skin which is amazing and was exactly what I needed. It creates a long-lasting glow, evens complexion, refines pores, and smooths lines. This cream is for dry skin and is a 24-hour moisturizer. This cream is also non-greasy and non-sticky not to mention it smells absolutely amazing. This cream retails for $39.99, and I highly recommend trying it out for yourself if you are looking for an incredible day-time cream. I apply this after I cleansed my face in the morning and before I apply my makeup application.


Next, I have to show you guys this wonderful product that Vichy Canada has to offer. Again, it is for sensitive skin, it’s like Vichy Canada knew me exactly down to a T.  This product is called the “Idealia Eyes, Eye Contour Idealizer Care“, which helps transform skin quality, and colour around the eye contour. This cream helps reduce the look of dark circles, illuminates shadows, and smooths the look of fine lines and skin texture. After 4 weeks, it reduces 21% of the appearance of dark circles, 23% of signs of fatigue, and 25% of fine lines. This was a clinical study that included 29 women within 4 weeks. The cream includes a smoothing applicator and has a fresh hydrating texture. I have only been using this product for almost a week now and it literally feels so soft on my skin, I love it. I will let you beauts know after the 4 weeks is up and how I think of the products. This product retails for $39.95.

Thirdly, I am going to talk to you beauts about the amazing “Idealia Peeling” product which is the radiance activating night peeling care. This is probably my most favourite product out of the 4 of them, I absolutely love it. You apply this product during your nighttime skin care routine and apply it to your face with a cotton pad. After applying this product to your face, do not rinse it off. All of these products smell unbelievably good, and my skin feels so fresh after using them.  I have noticed a difference in my face after using this product, as my face looks glowy and beautiful when I wake up in the morning.  This product retails for $39.95, and I highly highly recommend trying this out for yourself, you will not be disappointed whatsoever.


I absolutely love this last product that I am going to tell you beauts about.This is called the “Spa-Shower Gel-Cream” from the Idealia collection.  This product includes Vichy Thermal Spa Water, is rich in 15 minerals, and includes shea butter and white clay. This gel-cream provides lasting comfort, hydrates and softens the skin. Beauts, literally no joke, my skin felt so amazing and soft after getting out of the shower, I was in awe. Again, this is for sensitive skin which was amazing for me. I absolutely love this gel-cream and just use a loofa to apply it all over my body and then rinse it off. I am for sure going to keep using this in my shower routine to wash my body,  it smells heavenly.  This product retails for $16.95. I highly recommend trying this out as well!

I just want to personally thank Vichy Canada for being so kind and generous and sending me 4 beautiful products of theirs to try out and review for you beauts. I literally have no negative comments to say about the new Idealia line, as I absolutely adore the smell and how the products are on my skin. I have super sensitive skin and these products worked amazingly for my skin-type 100% I use these products every night before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning. Come and show Vichy Canada some love on their Instagram page at “VichyCanada”, and be sure to let me know if you beauts tried out their new Idealia Line! Also be sure to follow my other social media accounts for more blog posts to come in the near future! Take care, much love xo.
