As usual, we’re on the hunt for the latest, greatest products around that will do the job of simplifying your life—and making it just a little more fun. And we’re sharing. Because that’s what girlfriends do best. When it comes to giving you the scoop on what’s out there, we’ve got your back (and your front, and head and face and body and spirit).

Check out this list of must-haves. Besides one item that’s just a teeny bit illegal in Canada and 50 States, we’ve tried everything on it—and that’s how we know they’re great.



Sunday Scoop- Products that Make Life EasyAs much as we love and trust our hairstylist, we’re not spending a minute more than necessary sitting in a chair. And now we don’t have to.

Have you noticed that your hair colour never seems to last as long as you’d like it to—especially in summer when we’re all out in the sun and salt? That’s why this beauty trend is at the top of our list.

The new Joico Tint Shot Root Concealer is exactly what you need to get you from colour to colour without having to go anywhere at all. It’s one of a few spray hair concealers that we’ve tried lately and now we can’t live without it. Just choose your shade, spritz and presto! Roots begone.

Available in black, dark brown, light brown and blonde, this quick-to-dry formula bonds to hair fast, masking your roots until your next shampoo.



Sunday Scoop- Products that Make Life EasyWe always say it because it’s true: Beauty starts with the skin.

Especially in the heat, skin craves just the right amount of care. And all you need—to keep yours looking and feeling fresh—are these three beauty innovations. We’ve tried them, and they work.

Treat your skin to hydration, moisture, and that oh-so-clean feeling your summer self deserves.

Need more beauty essentials? Check out these must-have products, too. Oh, and these. Because let’s face it, beauty never ends.


Sunday Scoop- Products that Make Life EasyWhen it comes to scent, every woman is unique. So it’s no wonder that our taste in perfume is so personal.

Are you a sporty gal, or does earthy or citrus describe you best? Or would you throw on a caftan and a crown of flowers and be on your way.

The best way to make sure you give off the scent you want is to create your own. And you can—with UNIQUE Fragrance.

All you do is log on and use the scent builder to design the scent that appeals to you most. There are many options, everything from citrus to flower to spice, so take your time choosing your potion. Then get ready to welcome home the pretty bottle you’ve designed—you even name your creation!—when it’s mixed and shipped straight to your door.

You can’t get more unique than that.


Sunday Scoop- Products that Make Life EasyRemember that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial? Well, ditch the PB because we’ve got a new question: Who put the pot in my gourmet chocolate bar?

Yes, we’re serious. It’s the 420Bar. Available only in California and Washington, this treat is the best known high-potency cannabis chocolate brand on the West Coast.

What’s in it? 4.20Bar products are made with Fair Trade cacao and whole plant extracts from sustainable sun-grown cannabis. FYI-Chocolate naturally contains anandamide (the “bliss” chemical) which can heighten the perceived effects of THC. And not just that, 4.20Bar is the only cannabis chocolatier to offer a high-CBD chocolate with their half-CBD/half-THC dark chocolate bar.

No, we haven’t tried it. But, our peri-menopause, PMS-ing selves are sort of dying to. Anyone up for a road trip?
