The latest buzz on the delicious and decadent bath and beauty secrets from beauty blogger Crystal Jensen!

Revive & Balance

After a recent haircut, I'm learning to style short locks. I have tried many products, but most leave my hair feeling either crunchy or greasy and tend to weigh it down. Not with R&B hair moisturizer from LUSH! With ingredients like olive oil, avocado butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil, my tresses are full of soft, bouncy curls. It's perfect for scrunching hair that’s wet or smoothing fly-aways. The best thing about this cream is the exquisite scent of jasmine. You will be wrapped in romance! Pick up yours today at lush.ca.

Purity Made Simple

I found a one-step facial cleanser from Philosophy that is a true triple threat. Not only does this cleanser clean, tone and moisturize; it's a makeup remover, too. It's suitable for all skin types and is great to use all year round. I love using this after my morning run, for a perfect post-workout cleanse. Start your day off right with “Purity Made Simple.” Available at Sephora or philosophy.com.

The Ultimate Cup of Tea

Who doesn't love cozying up and relaxing with a warm cup of tea after a long day? Well, I have now found the ultimate luxury when it comes to indulging, and tea time is being taken to a whole new level. Salontea bath tea sachets fill your tub with sultry, sensual fragrances of spices and herbs. “The Writer” for the Chai tea devotee, “The Lover” for chocolate fans everywhere and “The Society Hostess” in us all: you will be immersed in heavenly scents. I must warn you, you may enjoy the bath time so much you will want to stay in there forever. Discover yours today at salontea.com or visit the new Granville Street location.

Lip Love

I think many of you will agree that we all love to pamper ourselves from head to toe. I have always been an advocate of making sure to exfoliate my body and face. I recently came across the lip scrub “Brown Sugar” by Sara Happ and don't know how I ever lived without it. After just one use, my lips were softer and smoother than ever before, making my lipstick and gloss glide on like silk. This scrub makes your pucker perfect! Say goodbye to chapped lips forever. Oh, and did I mention it smells like brown sugar? Check out sarahapp.com.

Salty & Sweet

If you could, wouldn’t you want that spa feeling at home? Principessa has created the perfect scrubs. Introducing "Amore Afterglow" smoothing salt buff & "Delizia Mia" creamy sugar polish. These two magnificent scrubs leave my skin touchable, soft and glowing, plus they leave the most incredible scent lingering on your skin. I love the whipped, frothy texture and how they illuminate my skin when applied. Both contain the sweet fragrance of honeysuckle, along with luscious organic extracts and shea butter. I cannot get enough of this line and am constantly replenishing my supply. Stock up at principessabeauty.com.
