I have to say it’s been a tremendous week – In all aspects – Seriously – Feeling the gratitude – big time.
As MyLipAddiction.com is moving into it’s 6th month of existence: I have to say that one of my favourite parts of Beauty blogging is reaching Out to lovely companies.
If something grips me as being beautiful – I write Them. I don’t wait! I Go with My heart. I guess I always have.
A few months ago I found Pure + Simple on twitter and as many of you lovelies know by now – I love love love Twitter. I followed them immediately as They are Canadian and in Toronto. I am so into skincare and natural products. I started a lovely correspondence with Karen Ma -Marketing Assistant at Pure +Simple.
So Lots is Going on because I received some Gorgeous – I mean GORGEOUS products from them last week and I am Going to visit them on Tuesday at Their Yorkville Location. They have beautiful spa services – not only products and this is why I am so excited to visit. I will be doing a full profile after I visit and meet the president / owner of Pure + Simple: Jean Eng.
I have my questions all ready for her as I am fascinated about how Inspiring women start out! I guess I have always been a journalist at heart. I didn’t go to school for it – (Only creative writing) but I have a very Inquisitive mind.
I will be shooting video, albeit from my iPhone!
I will probably do a virtual tour of their beautiful Location.
So Stay tuned for that post as well.
Now onto the beautiful products!
Karen asked me some questions about what Kind of products I like for my skin.
I read about everything on their website.
I was taken back by all the beauty and just explained that I have sensitive skin that is fair and that I don’t wear a lot of product on my face daily. Sunscreen always, a BB cream or tinted moisturizer usually, but unless I am Going Out- (date nights) or have a photoshoot or something – I stick to a minimal face – Mascara and Lipstick. Always Lipstick!
So – These came in the mail the day after.

What I find so amazing is Karen could define my skin’s needs just by a few emails.
I love that!
described as :
“A perfect anti-aging skincare regime for the busy professional. Pure + simple with just 4 fast and easy steps to beautiful skin, naturally. Ideal as anti-aging products for all skin types for men and women.”
All natural and perfect for me – As I am always on the Go!
So Let me tell You about the 5 products I received (so generously)
I have been using this since I got it- not even a week.
Perfect for evening when You want to brush off the dead skin cells so Your skin can renew itself as You sleep. It has Olive seed powder in it! I love this because I just know that I am not exfoliating with anything that is going to harm my skin- again – all natural.
It also has Oat Protein Amino Acid which is a great natural cleansing agent and is soothing to the skin.
Let me Just say That all these beauties smell divine and That is what struck me first! The lovely scent!
Neroli oil, Pumpkin oil and Lemongrass is what I believe creates this incredible melange of gorgeousness. Seriously – I would love this scent as a natural perfume!
Back to this Elixir!
It’s Completely Vegan, is Rich in essential fatty acids has Rose Hip oil & Organic Babassu Oil!
After Exfoliating and cleansing I go straight for this- Twice a day! It sinks right into my skin and leaves it dewy and the scent! Don’t get me started on the scent again!
The Serums/ Elixirs have the most beautiful packaging. Ceramic and stunning- like bringing the spa home.
Now I haven’t had all the time in the world to review everything – I will have more insight after I visit their spa on Tuesday.
From their website
