The buzz on the best, latest and coolest beauty products from beauty blogger Crystal Jensen!

Tea Please

What better way to combat our Vancouver weather than with a product containing the powerful concentrated Labrador Tea extract. The new line by Lise Watier, Age Control Supreme La Crème, gives superb moisture day and night. The incredible Labrador Tea leaves can withstand extreme climate conditions and do not shed. In my eyes, Labrador tea is a superhero in skin care. Visit

Strawberry & Roses

I love finding products that smell good enough to eat! The Fresh line of natural products reminds me of my childhood, spending time in the kitchen and garden with my grandmother. The Sugar Face Polish gently exfoliates with real brown sugar and strawberries, evoking memories of warm oatmeal and freshly baked pie. A perfect way to follow up and lock in moisture is with the Rose Face Mask. With the captivating scent, I’m reminded of rose bushes in full bloom. I guarantee my grandmother would approve! For more info go to,or swing by Beauty Mark.

Red: The New Black

My new obsession is rocking red lips. I have always kept a neutral lip, but I’m discovering how much fun a little pop of colour can be. Paired with a smoky eye for a dramatic look, or as a featured lip, Lise Watier’s Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer in Rouge Catwalk makes a bold statement. With a lighted applicator and mirror, this lip lacquer will not disappoint. Walk on the wild side and add some colour to your life. Available at

After Glow

Put a little spin back into your skincare. With this powerhouse duo, my skin has been taken to the next level. The SKN Spin is a must-add to any regimen, as it allows products to penetrate deeper and gives a gorgeous, radiant glow. The After Glow Serum pumped my skin full of nutrients and antioxidants, leaving it feeling restored and replenished. Aging skin is no match for these two. Learn more at and visit

A Beautiful Blend

Since I love anything pink, I could not resist this wonderful little gem. With its versatility and durability, the Beauty Blender is the ultimate makeup sponge. I was able to perfectly blend my foundation, even in the tiniest corner. I love its unique shape and the flawless coverage it gives. Who doesn’t want a streak-free complexion? Say goodbye to boring sponges and hello to this beauty. Grab yours today at
