Dress Me Dearly's Old Strathcona Beauty Picks

Thursday August 22 , 2013

Janis Galloway is the fashion blogger behind prominent Edmonton style site, Dress Me Dearly. As an Old Strathcona local you can find her out and about in the community daily whether it’s perusing her favourite boutiques, sipping a coffee at one of her regular haunts on Whyte Avenue, or taking in local music at some of the area’s best venues. As a die-hard lover of Old Strathcona, we asked her for her top favourite beauty products from the local shops.

  1. Klorane Dry Shampoo, Shopper’s Drug Mart
    My favourite “dirty little secret”. This spray in powder absorbs any excess oil and keeps my hair looking freshly washed on days when I hit the snooze button a few too many times.
  2. L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base, Shopper’s Drug Mart
    A makeup primer that turns your skin into a flawless blank canvas and keeps makeup in place all day long.
  3. Ocean Salt Scrub, Lush
    This exfoliate is safe for both face and body and is key to my winter skincare regime. Best part? Smells like a margarita!
  4. Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion, Aveda 
    This magic powder is sprinkled at the roots and transforms into a lightweight gel that gives hair natural looking volume. A must-have product for my fellow short-haired friends.
  5. Ultra Bland Facial Cleanser, Lush
    The most gentle face wash I’ve found and highly recommended for those with dry or sensitive skin. The salve-like formula is used on dry skin and gently removes makeup while moisturizing.
  6. Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine mist, The Beauty Parlour
    A non-oily repair spray that gives hair a subtle, shiny glow while infusing your mane with fruit extracts and oh-so-famous immortelle - thought to be the age-defying essential oil. Spray it on your skin for golden legs and shoulders and a light scent.
