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

Art Of Hair

There is always those sneaky fly aways that appear after styling my hair. I look for products that will smooth and not weigh down my tresses. Shu Uemura "Essence ABSOLUE" Nourishing Oil-In-Cream with Camellia Oil is the perfect aid during and after styling. I add it before blowdrying and a tiny bit as a balm to finish my look. This product has an incredibly captivating scent. Discover the Difference at

Masked Beauty

I'm all about using natures power foods to infuse my skin with goodness. Pomegranate's bring lots of beauty benefits and The Face Shop's "Real Nature" Face Mask Sheets contain pure ground pomegranate. This mask left my skin moisturized and glowing, it felt like I had just had a treatment at the spa. These one time use masks are super convenient for travel and easy to use.  Stock up on your favourites with

Oils Of Life

I've been using natural oils on my skin for as long as I can remember. There is something therapeutic and nourishing with infusing your skin with nutrients from the earth. The Body Shop's new Oils Of Life "Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil" combines black cumin oil from Egypt, rose hip oil from Chile and camellia oil from China. This powerful blend of oil plumped my skin and gave it a more youthful glow. It's super light-weight so you can use it day and night added to your cream. The whole Oils Of Life line is a beauty must have this fall and winter! Add life to your skin at


The Rice Way

I'm pretty particular when it comes to cleansers and I have totally fallen for The Face Shop's "Rice Water Bright" Rice Bran Cleansing Foam. It's great for taking off makeup and the rice bran granules  gently exfoliate my skin, leaving a brighter complexion. This cleanser is good at keeping my pores clean and impurity free.

Eye Perfector

For someone that doesn't wear a lot of makeup, I try to find a product that gives good under eye coverage without a heavy look. Garnier "Miracle Skin Perfector" BB Eye is the perfect treat to cover dark circles and it leaves my skin ultra moisturized. What I love most about it is that it does not make my eye makeup run and I can use on other areas of my face for some added highlighting. Brighten Up with

Coconut Smooth Me

Now I love a good body moisturizer, but I get distracted after the shower and sometimes forget to apply. Thanks to Jergens "Moisturizer For Wet Skin" with Coconut oil I don't have to worry anymore. This amazing smelling lotion is applied while your skin is still wet, it blends with water and soaks right into my pores. It has no greasy feel and it dries quickly so you can get out the door in no time. Get your smooth on with
