Be Merry & Glowing this holiday season

We have teamed up with Emily from @best_ofthislife and are giving away her favourite holiday set – The limited-edition Merry & Glowing Set. Emily Smith is the Editor of The Best of this Life. She has two littles, a darling husband, and dreams of owning a new puppy. She writes about gluten-free recipes, fashion, family, motherhood, healthy living, style, travel and a litany of other topics. She loves sharing her three core values with her readers – love life, live well, share the beauty.

“The holidays are noted for so many fun, festive events and get-togethers, and a lot of the time is spent outside playing in the snow, traveling to see family and friends, and decorating outside and in. Unfortunately, the constant change from a warm house or car to the cold outdoors can wreak havoc on the delicate skin of your face and neck (I know it does for me!), resulting in dry, dull skin that feels about as far from “merry and bright” as possible. Thankfully, Murad Canada is my own personal Santa Claus this year with their Merry & Glowing limited edition skincare giftset (an exclusive for the 2016 holiday season). emilyThe main goals of this three-itemed boxset are to brighten, clarify, and increase skin’s radiance—and I certainly experienced that! Over the past few weeks of using it, I’ve noticed a significant increase in the brightness of my skin, and the citrus scent is revitalizing and lovely.”

Enter for a chance to win* this beautiful Merry & Glowing Gift Set. Good luck and happy holidays!

*This giveaway is open to Canadians who have reached the age of majority. Giveaway ends December 14th at midnight EST. Good luck! This giveaway is in no way sponsored by Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media.

I knew I needed to try it.

We have teamed up with interior, lifestyle and beauty influencer Diana from 204 Park to find out what she thinks of the brand new collection from Murad, White Brilliance.

“As I get older my skin concerns are definitely changing. I’ve gone from worrying only about breakouts and oily skin to also being concerned about the tone and brightness of my skin as well. Years ago I never would have thought I’d worry about ‘dull’ skin but lately, I feel like unless I’m totally on top of my skincare regime, I need a little extra oomph to get some glow back.

Review by Diana from 204 Park

When I heard that Murad had a new line out specifically targeted at skin brightening I knew I needed to try it. Plus you know it’s going to be good as it’s a huge skincare trend in Korea. I don’t know about you but any time I hear about the next biggest thing in skincare, it’s always ‘big in Korea’. They seem to know what’s up when it comes to skincare! So thankfully Murad has made getting glowing luminous skin attainable and my skin is loving it! Here’s what it’s all about…

Step One: Cleansing Cream

A rich, gentle foaming cleanser that purifies and restores skin, utilizing a nourishing blend of Omega-6 Essential Lipids and Jojoba-derived Esters to enhance moisture retention, imparting skin with a silky, smooth texture.


Step Two: Luminous Essence

A quick absorbing, lightweight formula featuring an extract of electrolyte-rich Kunai Root to deliver essential hydration deep into the skin. Red Algae and Indian Fig Extracts gently exfoliate, restoring youthful texture and luminosity and priming the skin for optimized penetration of subsequent treatment products.


Step Three: Porcelain Serum

A powerful, high-potency serum that enhances skin’s translucence, formulated with four brightening technologies that leave the skin with a luminous glow; Porcelain Flower Extract evens and illuminates skin tone, Green Tea Extract helps promote skin’s brightness and firmness, and Hexylresorcinol and Hexapeptide-2 work together to deliver a visibly radiant and translucent complexion.

Step Four: Luminous Shield SPF 50

An ultra-lightweight UV lotion that protects skin’s rosy glow utilizing antioxidant-rich Grape Seed Extract to neutralize environmental aggressors and preserve skin’s brightness while light-diffusing microspheres fill in lines and wrinkles, making them appear less visible upon application


Because I’m loving this regime so far, I want to offer you the chance to win my favourite products, the Luminous Essence and The Luminous Shield. And with summer around the corner, a little SPF 50 is definitely going to come in handy!

Good luck! XO
