The secret to clear skin? Oh, it’s Clarisonic. The Clarisonic Mia is a mini, electronic face scrubber that removes the daily dirt that gets into our tiny, tiny pores – ideal for both guys and girls. How it works: use the Mia each time you wash your face (totally waterproof so it works in the shower). Apply your favorite face wash (we recommend Dermalogica’s Clean Start Wash Off for a bubbly, deep clean) all over the scrubber head. Click the power button and use in a circular motion all over the face. You can also use the Mia on the chest, shoulders, and neck. Not only does this little yet heavenly machine make your skin feel softer, it actually gives your skin a deeper clean because it targets surfaces we can’t properly get with just our hands. Try using the Mia every night and morning or any other time you wash your face to get the best results! P.s. Mia is your new best friend for pre-prom-prep!

Ladies and gentlemen, let the preparation begin! The most exciting day in our high school careers is almost here. But now it’s all about the finishing touches – picking our fav nail colour, deciding on loose curls over an up-do & red lips versus pink lips. As the day will be filled with your personal paparazzi, being picture perfect is a must. Gee Beauty’s “Bye Bye Blackheads” 45 minute mini-facial is an easy way to clear up those annoying, last minute blemishes that just aren’t part of your prom day. As for make-up, we’re thinking Beyonce glam mixed with Blake Lively’s beauty. Gee Beauty’s studio is the perfect pre-party to get your make-up done with all your friends! Also, we love these Teen Vogue pics as inspiration, especially for the guys – retro is in! Call to book your GB prom make-up at 416.486.0080. xoxox

All Of The Lights
Lomography cameras now at 6! We love Lomography cameras because of the artsy and old school vibe they give to every pic. These vintage looking cameras have awesome features like soft-focus, multiple photo formats, and colour gel filters to turn you into a modern day Picasso. The Diana Mini, Fisheye and Pop 9 are some of our favs. Cameras to inspire the inspired…

Happy valentines day!! Something we love? The chic and stylish celebs from last night’s Grammys! From a classy Beiber to a ghetto fab Willow Smith, the teen stars showed us how it’s done. Our fav definitely has to be Selena Gomez who looked like a Greek goddess with her stunning hair and hot pink lips. For a similar look try Gee Beauty’s Pink Jewel gloss and Indigo eye liner – gorgeous! Have a lovely day xoxo

Sure, the powdery snow is ghostly and pale, but that doesn’t mean our complexions have to be. Here are a few tips to get your glow back:
1. To warm up your skin tone, use a soft tinted moisturizer like Gee Beauty’s Mineral Sheer Tint (Natural Glow is our fav)
2. Soft pink blushes draw the perfect amount of attention to your pretty cheeks
3. Colourful gloss is the best accessory
4. Natural coloured bronzers like Gee’s Sunlit will make your eyes and lips pop!
Oh summer glows, how we’ve missed you.
HAVE YOU HEARD?

As the Gee Beauty mantra tells us, taking care of our skin is the most important and beneficial routine we can do to keep looking youthful, fresh and beautiful. But where to begin you might ask? Here are a few of Gee Beauty’s teenage tips to bring out your best glow.
Step 1: Face wash and toner. The key to maintaing clean skin is to wash and tone in the a.m. and p.m. Dermalogica’s Clearing Skin Wash is a gel wash that gives a deep, bubbly clean and refreshes the skin. Spraying toner all over the skin like Clean Start’s All Over Clear has sesame seed extract to control surface oil and shine while hydrating and calming the skin.
Step 2: Moisturize and correct. From oily to dry skin, we believe it is important to keep your skin hydrated. For a simple and light face cream try Dermalogica’s Active Moist at night and in the morning and for a more intensive lotion try Dermalogica’s Overnight Clearing Gel to help with blackheads and clogged pours. Oh and as for those fabulous pimples (totally kidding, we hate them too) don’t pop ‘em! As hard as it to resist, specialized pimple creams are the best solutions – Clean Start’s Hit The Spot or Malin and Goetz Acne Treatment work wonders.
Step 3: Eyes and lips. For the teens reaching the end of their high school careers or those entering the university life, eye cream is a great regime to get into. For a lightweight cream the Bliss All-Around Eye Cream helps us from looking less tired on those early morning – apply after washing your face at night. As for lips, we love putting on Clean Start’s Smart Mouth Lip Shine throughout the day and before bed (soooo yummy!!)
We totally get that it’s a lot to take in but these are just some ideas we think are perfect for Gee Beauty’s gorgeous teens…Also, come into Gee Beauty to talk to one of our skin therapists who can help you create your own little skin care package!! Alright, now you can go watch Gossip Girl – best season ever!

Hot fall trend: brown leather bags. We’ve been seeing this style in all our favourite mags, from Teen Vogue to Nylon and we simply can’t resist. Whether it’s oversized, structured, vintage or fringe, brown leather bags are the new rage. For a autumn school look, try wearing one with a blazer and skinny jeans or a knitted sweater paired with a flirty skirt – love! And as for your make-up, we’re thinking a pale-pink lip (like Gee Beauty’s Micro Nude), navy liner and mascara to finish the look.

Extra, extra! In this summer’s issue of Vervegirl, Dermalogica’s Clean Start made a special guest appearance. One of Vervegirl’s beauty trends is Hit The Spot, a Clean Start product for blemishes. This magical pimple cream works wonders on the skin while keeping it moisturized. Also, try Gee Beauty’s Blemish Buster – a 60 minute facial to clean your skin and give it the perfect glow! 416.486.0080.

DO YOU REMEMBER SEPTEMBER?
We know it’s every teen’s most dreaded end-of-summer-thought – but are you ready for a clean start for school? With ‘back to school’ looming over summer’s last official weekend, we feel it is best to look ahead fully equipped and looking good. New season = new outfits after-all (we’re not sure how many more times we can rock our cut-off shorts and lace tanks and make it look totally fresh, can you??). We have total faith that you’ll rock the halls with your strong strut and glossed lips. Dermalogica’s Clean Start has the best orange creamsicle-flavoured super-moisturizing lip gloss – we simply can’t ignore! Come into Gee Beauty to check it out!

Today’s agenda: Jessica Biel’s hair. We are so into Biel’s new hairstyle of darker roots and lighter tips. This beach-y and natural looking style is a perfect trend to make any girl feel effortlessly cool. Try this hair with flirty dresses and lots of lashes!
ROCK THAT BODY
Back to school essential: blush blazers. Pair it with a simple, gold Michael Kors watch and lots of pearls. TDF (to die for).

Here is a blogger we are totally loving. Style Scrapbook star Andy, is always uploading stylish outfits with her luscious locks and rocker sunglasses. Her make-up style is natural and pretty, perfect summer look. These are a few photos we were inspired by, hope you are too! Enjoy xox
Have you heard? Floral pants are the new ‘it’ thing. We totally get that wearing floral pants may be a bit tricky but our advice is to have fun and mix things up – who knows what amazing creation you can come up with! Try Gee Beauty’s Micro Flamingo or Posh Pink lipsticks to play around with this look.

COLOUR MY WORLD
Flipping through this month’s SHAPE Magazine (Kim Kardashian was on the cover – side note: we love Kim – gorgeous, curvy, funny and tells it like it is), and found a pic of hot summer makeup thats all about colour. Electric royal blue liner (try our Rhapsody liner), with a sheer pink glossy lip (try our Cleavage with Super Femme on top), and pastel pink nails (we’re so into OPI’s Pandemonium Pink right now – we just happened to be wearing it tonight when we snapped the pic).
Are you in the know about Tkees? Everyone’s wearing them – Rachel, Lindsay, and Blake, Angelina… you’ll be in good company. Gee Beauty has all the colours. The hardest part will be deciding on just one (or two…)
There’s a great article in this month’s Teen Vogue all about the affects of tanning beds. Basically, the article sums up that the strong rays from these tanning beds WILL cause skin cancer. To us, that is seriously negative news and WE want to further educate you.
Hey, we totally understand the need for a gorgeous glow but we also know how major it is to take care of your skin. Try Gee Beauty’s COCO treatment, which uses a cream tanning lotion that is evenly applied to all over the face and body. The tan can be customized so you can be as light or as dark as you want. Gorgeous and safe and guaranteed to get your natural glow. Call for an appointment 416.486.0080.
