Face Time

I know what you’re thinking. It’s March. We’re (nearly) out of the woods when it comes to winter. But my friends, Canadian winters are ever-unpredictable, and I felt I owed you one last mid-winter pick-me-up post, aka the best gift ideas for folks that are just suffering through our subarctic months. To recap, we’ve covered shoes, hair, skin, and hands…but somehow I forgot to zero in on the face. So today’s finds are for your kisser, to get you buffed and beautiful to accept a wee bit of Vitamin D as the snow finally begins to melt this month..or next.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – $34
Sometimes when I do posts like this one, it occurs to me that this is *not* a beauty blog. But for reals? This product is ON MY GIFT LIST. Not only to want, but to give, because I am a complete and total convert and I want you to be as well. Teeny tiny crystals similar to those used by dermatologists for microdermabrasion treatments and papaya enzymes slough off dead skin particles while various oils smooth things over, leaving you with skin that feels like its just had a spa treatment.
Bonus! The brand is Canadian, meaning they’ve already won a bigger spot in my heart.
Buy It For: Seriously get yourself a bottle of this stuff first, then buy some for your girlfriends, your sisters, your mom – they will love you.

Frownies – $19.95 – $29.95 USD
Think of Frownies as the anti-Botox. They do the same thing…only without injecting poison into your skin. Simply apply a patch to your skin and let it keep your muscles locked in place overnight to reverse muscle memory and smooth out your skin. Your giftee will be seriously glad they can show emotion once they see how amazing their skin can look with regular use (and a helpful Vitamin E-based moisturizer).
Bonus! You can stretch the results of these productive patches – they’re reusable! Suddenly that box of 60 has the potential to last your lucky pal months and months.
Buy It For: Your best friend (or mom), that’s earned every wrinkle on her face with a life full of love and growth.

The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops Of Youth – $30
If you ever walk down the aisle of a drugstore skincare section, you may be wondering what gems exist amongst the snake oils of the planet. If you’re skeptical of bargain beauty buys when it comes to your skin (as you should be), consider this organic alternative to commercial anti-aging potions, made of 98% naturally derived ingredients. Using stem cells harvested from the coastal plant criste-marine, a single drop of this potent formula stimulates your skin to shed its top layer and reveal new, young-looking skin cells – day or night. Talk about instant gratification in a tiny little bottle!
Bonus! Yay for fair trade – Drops Of Youth includes organic babassu oil from a Brazilian co-operative. Your purchase is giving 150 women a steady income, and a more prominent position in their society.
Buy It For: Your world-weary sister, that’s just starting to take your constant sunscreen nagging seriously. Your fair trade lovin’ cousin, that’s always introducing you to third-world plights next to first-year goodies.

GLAMGLOW Mud Mask – $78 (CAD)
Truth be told I got to try a sample of this through my Glymm box – one of those monthly beauty product sampling services. It’s *definitely* an indulgence – after all, the product is inspired by Hollywood – but I couldn’t help but include it as a luxury beauty buy for a very special person in your life (yup, it’s unisex). With bits of volanic pumice rock and intense nutrients, you’ll feel completely connected to the elements when you smear this stuff on and almost instantly feel your skin tighten up. The sleek packaging is dead on: you’ll shine like the stars after using this powerful mask. For the record, you can buy this at a bunch of Canadian retailers. Try BeautyMark.ca, eBeauty.ca, or Glymm.com.
Bonus! It’s vegan. Which in my nerdily pseudo-vegan heart, makes me excited.
Buy It For: Treat the rents to a day at the spa without stepping outdoors: hook them up for Mother’s or Father’s Day.

Weleda One-Step Toner & Cleanser – $24

As much as I’m for pampering your epidermis, I also recognize that sometimes the best treatment is the everyday way you take care of your skin. Enter Weleda’s One-Step Toner & Cleanser, which speeds up your nightly cleansing routine, and if I’m being perfectly honest, does a frighteningly good job at doing so – you’ll be stunned at what it unearths from your pores. Olive oil soap breaks down the daily grime, while earthy witch hazel immediately tones the skin. Add to that an electrifying citrus scent and you feel scrubbed clean and ready to slumber.
Bonus! I’ve rhapsodized before about Weleda’s all-natural goodness but let me reiterate: this stuff is free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants, and raw materials derived from mineral oils. In other words? It’s better-than-good for your skin.
Buy It For: Your harried new mommy friend that could use a helping hand when it comes to keeping wrinkles – laugh and worry alike – at bay, or your constantly traveling best pal that knows every inch counts in their luggage space (the bottle is exactly airplane friendly).

There you have it! Five pampering treats designed to prime your skin every single day – and every single special occasion that someone decides to take a time out for themselves. I particularly love stuff for your face as gift ideas because they often have a spa-like feel, but a completely practical purpose to go with. Trust me, anyone on your gift list will flip for one of these last few mid-winter pick-me-ups!

And I’m sure you’ll flip for today’s sweeeet prize package on offer. One very lucky winner will have a glowing complexion year-round thanks to Weleda, who is giving away a one-year supply of skincare products customized to your skin type, valued at over $150.

    I have to multi-task all day long – but decide what can wait until tomorrow

  4. Louise says:

    While baking or even making dinner I turn on the tv which I have one in my kitchen and catch up on the news

  5. Kiki says:

    As a child, with long hair down to the middle of my back, my mom always had me shower and wash my hair the night before, so that it would dry overnight and I’d just have to comb it (probably put it in pigtails) and go off to school. I was (and still am) a notoriously grumpy person who loves to sleep in… to this day, I still employ this time saver to catch a few extra zzz’s I would’ve otherwise spent showering and drying my hair every morning.

  6. Nicole B says:

    Folding laundry while watching tv

  7. Scott H says:

    Get the kids to do the dishes or sweep the floor.

  8. Jayne Cameron says:

    I learned that when you move around the house from one floor to the next take something up and bring something down. This way you are not empty handed and clear clutter faster.

  9. shelley king says:

    By doing 2 things at once, while I watch tv, I fold clothes or do small mending tasks, sewing on buttons, etc.

  10. Dreena says:

    To save time in the hectic morning rush, I lay out everything I need the night before for breakfast prep on the counter…French Press ready to go next to the coffee, water in the kettle, frying pan and spatula out, etc. Sure helps when I am foggy in the a.m. and saves me time.


  11. Sue Leonhardt says:

    I work from home on the computer, and look after my husband and 2 Labs.The dogs lie beside me in my office, and when they are bored they jump up and hit the keyboard…to say that’s enough Mom! I love to cook, and cook everyday.I have learned to mult-task, and get up every morning at 6:00A.M. I turn the computer on , make coffee and breakfast, let the dogs out. There is never enough hours in the day. I relax in the evening and read books.

  12. jenice says:

Saves me time from having to go to different shops and saves me $$$.

  16. Geraldine says:

    I like to knit while I’m watching TV or listening to music. Relaxing and time well spent, not wasted just watching TV! Thanks for the great contest.

  17. Sheila says:

    To make my mornings easier I make lunches the night before. I figure out what I am going to wear the night before also. I plan my meals on the weekends and even do some cooking on the weekend so my week is not so rushed.

    I check the flyers and AD match so I only have to shop at one place and still get good deals.

  18. Holly Sproule says:

    I prepare everything i need for school the next day, that night. It also lets me sleep in a bit longer!

  19. debra says:

    always cook in large quantities so can freeze and use on another day

  20. Andrea says:

    I have 5 kids, so saving time around here is really not all that possible, but I try to multi task…the big thing around here is I clean the kitchen at the same time as I make dinner since I have to be in the kitchen then anyways, and I try to get the kids involved with the cleaning to make it fun for them such as the other day we played the hand washing the floor game. they had more fun that i did though lol

  21. Susan says:

    I try to buy extra items when they are on sale to save me a trip for a staple item later. #CGG

  22. Gizele says:

    I cook 3 packs of bacon and freeze it. I also cook a big pack of hamburg and freeze it too. So when I want bacon or hamburg for something, it is ready in just a few minutes.

  23. Donna L. says:

  39. Mirna says:

    I love love Vasanti’s BrightenUp. I took it with me on my recent vacation to Australia and used it religiously. I had my mum and sister try it and they were in love with it also.

  40. Kelly Colby says:

    To save time I try to multi task, clean kitchen while cooking dinner

  49. Jennifer says:

    The night before, I prepare the outfit that I am going to wear for the next day, saves a bunch of time in the morning, especially when you are in a rush.

    Writing out a list in the morning, helps as well, it saves time to think about what you are going to do in case your forget.

  50. Marlene V. says:

    what do you do to save time in your busy day?
    delegate duties to the husband and kids. Everyone has to pitch in !!!

  51. Laura Bleecker-Collins says:

    To save time each day I organize my day in my daytimer the evening before.

  52. I multi-task. Get a number of jobs going all at one time, seems I can get my work done in lot less time both at home and on the job. LIke the pressure of lots to do and I get it done a lot faster when I have a number of jobs to do.

  53. Lorna says:

    too save time I have taught the family how to load and run the dishwasher the laundry, watch my PVR girl shows well I work on my coupons sorting each day and make food for 2 meals when I an and freeze one

    Hi I save time by multitasking. Sometimes I ask for help from hubby and kids. Or I just decide what needs to be done now and what can wait.!!

  55. lee-ann says:

    once a month I spend a whole day making freezable meals….sheperds pie, turkey pot pie, meatballs, meatloaves, marinated chicken…..yadda, yadda, yadda,…..I put them in family sized portions in the tin pans, write the date, and what is inside, and then store them in the freezer. Makes for easy mealtime…pull something out in the morning, pop in the oven and there you go, a healthy meal made in no time….

  56. Adeline Khoo says:

    Multitask – Boil some water, take stuff out of the fridge, sweep the floor etc

  57. anj says:

    I try to use a combined cleanser/toner

  58. Luna B says:

    I quickly do my chores first thing in the morning to save time, but then the dogs muddy the floors again. Oh well I love them anyway!

  59. Cathy says:

    I get breakfast ready the night before 🙂

  60. Sadly, to save time in the morning I seem to consistently skip using toner. Another time saver that might be helpful is I prepare lunches and get my stuff together the night before.

  61. Angela M says:

    I save time by doing things the night before. Packing lunches, giving baths, packing backpacks all done the night before.

  62. Clara says:

    I bike everywhere. Even if it saves me 2 mins (opposed to a 5 minute walk) I’ll bike to the store. It also keeps you on your toes! 🙂

  63. Ali says:

    Do dishes while things cook!

  69. Adela says:

    Having shower when waiting for baking

  70. eleanor q says:

    I try to multitask and read the paper while commuting to work to keep up to date on current affairs.

  71. glogirl3 says:

    While baking I like to wash my dishes as I work rather than having a huge pile of dishes to wash with the regular meal time dishes. It saves time and stress!


  72. Julia says:

    I always try to think of what I could be getting done while I’m doing something else – for example, if I’m making pasta for supper, and the pasta is cooking on the stove, and it will take 10 minutes to cook, I use those 10 minutes to tidy up the kitchen, instead of standing there watching the pasta boil for 10 minutes. If I’m doing laundry, I throw the laundry in the wash, and go and get my exercise done by going for a quick 20 minute walk while the laundry washes. It all adds up!

  73. Donna McCarthy says:

    Making enough supper to have leftovers to take to work for lunch the next day.

  74. Janice Janiec says:

    I use Weleda Skin Food for a whole host of things – first aid cream, moisturizing dry spots, healing pimples & even on my daughter’s dry & rosy cheeks! One product with tonnes of uses = saved time & money.

  75. Rachel says:

    Set out my clothes (and get my lunch organized) the day before… that way I don’t have to fuss around in the morning!

  76. Lloyd The Man says:

    I plan ahead all the time and make sure I have time to do what I have to do.

  77. Sandra S says:

    I save time by always cooking more than I can eat, so there are always leftovers, saves me time on cooking more meals

  78. Retro RX says:

    The best way for us to save time is to plan ahead. Meals for the week. Shopping lists. What to ear the next day. Have lunches partially ready before bed and just put them together in the morning. Our morning routine helps a lot. What time everyone should be doing what keeps everyone on track and we can also tell if we are running late easier.

  79. kelly rose says:

    return and make phone calls while tidying up.

  80. Tannis says:

    Communication is the key to saving time. My husband and our three kids discuss the night before as to what the next days’ schedule for each of us looks like. We can then prepare whatever we can the night before to make the morning go smoothly.

  81. Lynn Hall says:

    Multi tasking is My life since I can’t sit still for long I am always doing little chores that way I stay on top of everything!!!

  82. Diana says:

    I’m not sure, but I’d like to find out.

  83. kimberly mitchell says:

    i multitask to get things done so that i have some free time to myself in the evenings

  84. Samantha says:

    I get everything ready the night before, outfits, lunches, breakfast, bags packed etc
    I also double recipes for leftovers later in the week

  85. When making dinner,… I serve up extra portions to use for pack up the following day 🙂

  86. Claudia Mendez says:

    Pack my lunches for the week on the weekend!

  87. Cheryl Morreale (@loucheryl) says:

    I love to exercise but I have a 2.5 year old son who keeps me really busy. Soooo….I go running with my son in his jogging stroller and end off at the park so I get a two-for-one! I get a great workout and my son gets an AWESOME ride and a park playdate! That’s how I save time.

  88. Jane MacCarthy says:

    In the morning I brush my teeth with my electric toothbrush while walking around doing a final clean up before I leave for work. Not only do I save time but I end up brushing my teeth for twice as long without even thinking about it. I do the same before going to bed.

  89. Mary L says:

    I freeze extra meals. Also, when I am leaving one room, I look around to see if there is anything I can take with me to the room I am going to. When I live in a house with a second floor, I put things on the steps to take up later.

  90. Cynthia says:

    I usually set aside one day a week for a major cleaning day and multi-task. While I am cleaning the washer and dryer are doing their thing. During the rest of the week it’s just matter of keeping things tidy. I also like to wash dishes as I cook and bake so there aren’t as many dishes to wash after the meal or after I finish baking.

  91. nancy luitwieler says:

    get up early, before the family and make a list of the things to be done (TBD) today. I use a recycled envelope for the TBD list just to be thrifty, it reminds me of my mom.

    Cross each task off as it is accomplished. Yayy!!!

    Whatever does not get done moves to the TBD tomorrow.

    After a year of consistent list making and follow throughs, I am amazed at my accomplishments. I use this TBD technique at work also on recycled photocopy paper.

  92. sample please!!

  93. Rachelle_L says:

    I try to multitask. For example, if I pull my two girls to the park in a wagon, I’m getting in a workout and playtime with the girls. I also rely heavily on my slowcooker.

  94. Barbara says:

    Set the table and prepare breakfast the night before.

  95. Jeannette Laframboise says:

    I used to try to do everything on my list as early as possible but as I have gotten older, I find spreading it all out is much more efficient and saves me time because I am not exhausted from running constantly. Recently we were put on a hydro meter so tasks that require more hydro such as dishwashers and washers and dryers cost much more if you do it during the day. I wait until after 7pm now and by then everything else is done so I can finish up without feeling stressed and tired.

  96. Jonathan says:

    Prepare the stuffy the evening before (e.g. food, meals), then multi-task chores and things-to-do in the next day, e.g. boil water, whilst that’s happening, prep food for boiling, during boiling, go do something else, come back.

  97. Anita says:

    Always go up or down the stairs with something to carry up, when I go outside to gather our chickens eggs, I take food and water to them in the same trip. With three kids I try to have them help clean up there own room and reward them for helping…

  98. Barbara says:

    Multi-tasking, which seems to be a female specialty.

  99. Debbie Cahoon says:

    I multitask all day long; that gives me more time for me at the end of the day for whatever I decide to spoil myself doing

  100. Brooky says:

    I save time in my busy day by organizing myself the night before. Sometimes, if I have very early meetings, I take a shower and wash my hair the night before all that is neede from me is to wash my face! This gives me plenty of time to have a really nice and long breakfast!

  101. tennille says:

    never leave a room without tidying one thing and never go up or down the stairs empty handed

  102. Tammy Webb says:

    Wait to have coffee til I get to the office in the morning-saves time AND money!

  103. Heather says:

    To save time during my busy days with two small boys I try to cook more than I need at dinner time so there are leftovers for a quick healthy meal later 🙂

  104. Debbie Petch says:

    Whenever I am watching tv, I am always doing something with my hands. Sewing, knitting, sorting etc.

  105. Barbara says:

    Multi tasking of course!

  106. Ashley S says:

    I iron while watching my fav shows, I make more food than I can eat in one sitting so I have leftovers for the next day and I skip things I should probably do but don’t because no one is checking up on me (like make the bed and hang up my clothes right away) 😉

  107. Debi Kisluk says:

    I ask my kids to do the dishwasher while I prepare dinner. They have their own chores around the house that saves me time so that I can spend more time with them (and myself!)

  108. kristi says:

    Lists, lists and more lists.. no matter what it is, I like to plan in advance and write things down to keep me on track and keep my head clear:)

  109. Liza Leutenegger says:

    I use Weleda’s almond soothing cleansing lotion as a makeup remover as well and save a step in my night time routine.

  110. Josie says:

    I fold laundry at the end of the day while I unwind watching my fave TV shows.
    I also pre cut all my veggies for the week on Sunday. Huge time saver

  111. Barbara says:

    Yellow sticky notes to keep me organized all over the house!

  112. Rebecca says:

    Sunday is my cooking day I cook for hours and then put everything in the freezer,now my weekday nights are just throwing food in the microwave .I also do one half hour a day of cleaning i wipe everything down so when cleaning day comes its just a few min a gain of wiping things down.now my biggest and oddest time saver ,completely embarrassing to admit but I do facial exercises you know to fight off the droopy face ,instead of spending 20 min standing in the mirror i actually do them every time I sit down in the washroom ..I drink a lot of water everyday so i am in there a lot and it’s like killing two birds with one stone i guess.

  113. leisha anderson says:

    I tidy constantly as I walk throughout the day from room to room, car to house, etc. I also always cook enough dinner to provide leftovers for lunches the next day, and maybe even for another evening that week!

  114. Bee L says:

    I make a list the night before and stick to it the next day. Usually, I write it on my whiteboard outside my bedroom so it’s the first thing I see when I wake up.

  115. julia g says:

    I make large batches for supper and freeze some for later.

  116. prairiebelle says:

    I multitask when ever I can during the day. Every little bit really does count

  120. Darren Gocal says:

    Get organized and save time doing my nightly cleansing

  121. Jessica Bleasdale says:

    I cook while the kids sleep and the laundry is washing!

  122. luxor69 says:

    I guess alot of these have already been mentioned:

    cook meals in batches and freeze leftovers
    shower at night
    always take something when going up/down stairs
    plan my car trips in an orderly manner (ie in order of where they are located)
    grocery lists are made in the order that the food appears in the store

  123. Janet says:

    Going from morning to night go go go!! Multi tasking!1 everready Bunny!!!!

  124. Sherry k says:

    I make each meal I prepare, last for several days – maybe two dinners and lunch or a couple lunches and dinner.

  125. Hope says:

    Put on the slow cooker at least twice a week. With a family of six this saves us time to share more around the dinner table.

  126. Donnas says:

    I multi-task.

  127. Donnas says:

    I multitask
