Beauty Confidential


We need to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. A fabulous new eye cream, a quick mani/pedi, or a good hair day, and all of a sudden things are looking brighter (maybe even under your eyes).
To help with this endeavour, we’re sharing some great spots in the city where you can indulge and make it all about you (for once).

Did you graduate from drugstore brands to more expensive ones, then swear off anything touching your face if it wasn’t ‘all natural’? It might be time to break up with your current skin regime and head to Consonant, the new, buzzed-about beauty destination on Yonge Street, north of Eglinton. They know we’ve all been burned by promises made by other labels, but this Canadian company offers an uncompromising position: 100% natural products, the highest possible concentration of organic botanical ingredients, and skin that truly looks and feels improved. You also won’t have to spend the equivalent of a week’s worth of groceries for a small vial of youthful vitality.

Cranberry FlirtNeed a blow dry in Bloor West? Don’t toy with the idea of heading anywhere other than Cranberry Flirt. The pretty blow-dry bar also offers manicures, pedicures, and waxing services—and they know that we all love to get a great deal. Each Tuesday is a two-for-one day—bring in a friend and one of you gets the same service for free. (Isn’t a pedicure even more enjoyable if a friend pays for it?) And every Wednesday, there’s a new deal to be had (i.e.: free blow dry with a pedicure), so check their Facebook page for details each week.
