Editor’s note | Fair warning, we are venturing away from the world of beauty, books and movies that are usually featured here on Beauty, Brains +. Today, we are looking at something for the grown and venturing into the world of sex toys. So if you are not 18+, or you are, but are embarrassed by such things, then this post is not for you.

As a blogger, I get pitched a lot of different products for reviews and features. I don’t agree to review them all the time, but every now and then I am intrigued enough by the pitch to say ‘yes’. One such pitch was for the new LELO SONA Sonic Massager ($89.99). I admit, that I have absolutely zero experience with the brand LELO, so I figured that the launch of a brand new products was a great place to start. So let’s take a look at the new LELO SONA Sonic Massager that was only released last week. View Post
Earlier this year I just so happened to be watching the Dr. Phil show one afternoon. While I don’t always have the time to watch it, this time I did. Now imagine my surprise when near the end of the show, Dr. Phil invites his lovely wife on stage to speak about her skincare line, Robin McGraw Revelation. Now I’m not one to buy things just because I see it advertised on TV, but I have to admit that I was intrigued to find out more. Unfortunately, at that time they were not yet shipping to Canada. Well fast forward to this summer when they reached out to let me know that Robin McGraw Revelation is now available in Canada. I can’t even pretend that I didn’t jump at the chance to test out a few products from the line.

Melt Cosmetics has long been a brand on my ‘I should try them’ list. Unfortunately for me, I always seem to forget about them and never ended up purchasing anything from them. Well, that was the case until a few weeks ago when they launched the Hot Box Collection. There was just something about this collection that really caught my eye. Combine that with great email flyer timing, and I managed to actually get my hands on the Melt Cosmetics The Haze Stack ($48 USD).

I have been trying to get my hands on Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum for several years now. I saw it and tested it out on my very first shopping trip to Murale and I absolutely loved it. Of course, I made the ultimately stupid decision not to pick it up right then and there and I’ve regretted it because after that I wasn’t able to find it anywhere. So when it was re-released earlier this year as part of the celebration of 30 years of the Guerlain Terracotta Powder, I did a little happy dance and picked it up. Actually, I picked up four bottles because I’m determined not to be without this one again. View Post
