Wren's Beauty Hit List 


I am super pasty and pale but love looking tanned in the summer. I use Vita Liberata Invisa Foaming Tan Water (light to medium) and Vita Liberata Gradual Tanning Lotion. I use the foaming tan water after I have exfoliated in the shower. Use the glove to apply the mousse evenly over the body. Tan will appear 4-5 hours later. The next day after showering I apply the gradual tanning lotion - enhances the tan a bit to a bit of a darker glow.

I follow-up every 2 or 3 days with the same routine. I have used so many tanning products and these give the most natural glowy look!

I am a big double cleanser at night. I used to use an oil cleanser but much prefer this Joelle Cicocco Creme Emulsionnante. It's light and hydrating and removes all my makeup and sunscreen from the day. I follow that up with my favourite cleanser from IS Clinical (Cleansing Complex).

I am currently dealing with hormonal acne (which suckkkkkkks!) but there are a few great products I have found to deal with it. 
One specific product is Jan Marini Duality - this product is incredible. Deals with adult acne while also minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It has two chambers - one with Benzoyl Peroxide and one with a Retinol. Dispense from each chamber and apply to face (my current nightly routine is cleansing, apply a hyaluronic acid or hydrating serum like Skinceuticals B5 and then this product and then a moisturizer if necessary). Use this product every other night as it can be drying. In just 3 weeks it has cleared up my cystic acne and I have seen a huge difference - it's really incredible!!

One of my fave suncreens is Alumiers Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Untinted SPF 40. Lightweight and doesn't pill under makeup. It's a sheer moisturizing suncreen - and I put it on every single day ... cloudy day, winter day ... always wear your suncreen!!! 


 Biologique Masque Vivant IS THE HOLY GRAIL of masks. I love this product - it does everything from minimizing breakouts to purify the skin to unclog and tighten the pores. It smells really horrible but worth the putrid fragrance. Mix it with a bit of baking soda (trade secret!). I use this mask 2-3 times a week - leave it on for 20-30 mins and wash off with warm water and a washcloth.

6. HIGHLITER/ Bronzer

Another cult fave - this one came highly recommended to me by my beauty guru sis in law @itsjennarennert. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar - highlighter for cheekbones on one side and bronzer on the other side.. Use this every day!! 



Cle De Peau Correcteur Visage Concealer Stick - one of the best under eye concealers out there. Not cheap but worth every penny ... especially for mommas who get little to no sleep but want to look rested. 


I use to use a brow pencil but that required too much precision. I have since moved to a tinted brow gel from Mix Beauty (in Brunette). Provides the best tint and gives me great shape and definition. BONUS - I use it to cover the small grey hairs that are sprouting at the top of my hairline (ughhhhh)

9. TINTED Lipstick

I don't wear lipstick and I am not a fan of lipgloss - Gee Beauty's Vitamin C Lipsticks are perfect. They come in a variety of shades (I love the clear one). But I recently discovered the tinted shade in Nectar Balm - gives you the perfect amount of natural colour (like you have just bitten your lips).
