Coconut Hand CleanseWith the FDA (America’s Food and Drug Association) finally weighing in on the much controversial subject of whether antibacterial soap and hand sanitizers are good for use, the fact remains that the main ingredients with which they’re made, triclosan, is actually harmful. Upon use, triclosan quickly breaks down when exposed to chlorinated water and produces toxic chemicals, including chloroform — scary stuff isn’t it?

So, ditch the hand sanitizers in favor of the coconut hand cleanse, which provides a rinse-free cleansing, minus the triclosan.

Blusher BrushFor those who are daily blush users, then an adequate blusher brush is absolutely essential. Reduced to $12, its synthetic make promises to deliver an even dusting of powder onto the face and cheeks. It is also marked as limited edition, meaning that it’s best to jump on the offer sooner, rather than later as you may never see it again!

As usual, a variety of body butters have been reduced as well, such as the lovely mini moringa, which can be acquired for just $3 instead of $6.

How will you be pampering yourself this summer?

For the dads who can’t go a single morning without their favorite cup of joe, a Keurig is the way to go as the perfect 2013 Father’s Day gift idea. I have one and it was the best coffee-related purchase I have ever made and if anything, I wish I could have benefited from the VC Exclusive above!

Adidas AftershaveOf course, as far as gifts for dad go, there’s always the option of falling back on a timeless classic such as any items associated with skincare and since Adidas is a highly popular brand, then their after shave may just become your dad’s favorite product. Since it’s only $9.99 and you will need another item in order to benefit from the discount, we suggest you pamper yourself in the process — you deserve it!

Although the above coupon isn’t applicable, there is also an ongoing BundleMania promotion allowing you to save up to 50% when you buy in bundles.

RetailMeNot Canada Announced: What Does This Mean for Canadians?

May 25, 2013, Posted By Rita

Retail Me Not Canada Announced imageIn an effort to target the Canadian market, RetailMeNot has recently announced that a Canadian version of its website will soon be coming but what exactly does this mean for Canucks?

Although a large portion of frugal and regular shoppers are turning online to save money, Canadians may in fact be losing out on a number of vital discounts by turning to a website that is potentially biting off more than it can chew.

At its core, RetailMeNot is an American website striving to reach the global marketplace by appealing to as many users as possible, but is this wise?

While shopping in the United States has been a long-favored pass-time of Canadian citizens looking for deeper savings, now that online shopping is on the rise, perhaps the use of a solely Canadian website such as may in fact lead to bigger savings considering that many stores headquartered in Canada are more likely to provide online communities based in the same country as them with even better savings, especially in the form of exclusive coupon codes or promotions.

Update: RetailMeNot Canada is now live. Let us know your thoughts on their new endeavor in the comments below!

We’d love to hear from you on this topic! What are your thoughts on the launch of RetailMeNot Canada?

Defined as: “the use of geometric primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shape(s) or polygon(s), which are all based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics“, vector graphics are particularly useful for using images on the internet (i.g. blog posts, articles, etc.).

But you may be wondering what the advantages are of using these vector illustrations? The answer is simply that they require less space and are far more flexible than other image types (such as bitmap). The latter is especially important because as they are re-sized, vector images “remain smooth because your computer merely re-computes the coordinates of the points and adjusts the vector equation constants“.

Vector Examples

Top, left to right: big red heart, happy couple, abstract banners, hand holding fresh green sprout, & t-rex dinosaur.
Bottom, left to right: swirly grapes, DiscoDivas deluxe, abstract background, crown, & superhero.
