Lancome Bi-Facil-Double Action Eye Makeup Remover

When I sent out that Facebook post asking all my lady friends what’s the best makeup remover my mum saw it and that’s when she gave me the Clinque sample in my March Favourites. Well my Mum’s best friend saw the post as well and gave my Mum her sample bottle for me to try. The Lancome Bi-Facil makeup remover is one of my favourites (tied with the Clinque one). They are honestly both great products. I find the Lancome makeup remover hurts my eyes a bit but it gets more of the makeup off, it has also lasted a little bit longer than other but not by much. You can get this product in a lot of stores, Sears, The Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and of course Sephora for roughly $36.00.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

This was the product I had in mind when I was looking for a new face wipe since Target closed down. This product is great, like the entire Cetaphil line is, it really is gentle, refreshing, and doesn’t make your face red when you use it; it also comes in two sizes! They have a small travel pack (10 cloths) that you can put in your purse or beach bag, and they have a big pack (25 cloths) that you would leave at home. The only problem with these is they’re impossible to find! I’ve been using them for about 2-3 weeks now because they’re hard to find but I’m impressed with them. I kept going back to the store to see if they had them but they didn’t, then I went to the travel section and bought 3 travel sizes ones. I absolutely love Cetaphil products! You can get these bad boys at Shoppers Drug Mart for $5.00-$7.00.

Hair Care Favourite:

Sephora-Ombre-Ribbon-Hair-Ties-in-AmethystSephora Ribbon Hair Ties

Every girl tries to find that one hair tie that doesn’t leave that dreadful lump on the back of their hair. Well I think we have found it ladies (and gents). I bought one just to try it out and I fell in love with it. They last a long time and don’t fade in colour or get stretched out fast. You can get an 8 pack in different colours at Sephora for $11.50.

St.Ives Daily Hydrating Vitamin E Body Lotion

I was looking online to see what would help with chlorine burn, vitamin C helps get rid of it but vitamin E helps restore your skin. I love St.Ives body wash so I got this lotion. This works so well, my chlorine burn was gone and my skin felt great. I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $4.00-$5.00.

Home Favourite:

The Real Simple Guide To Real Life: Adulthood made easy. 

I saw this book advertised on The Real Simple Instagram and thought it was an interesting idea. So I went on a mission to a Chapters that would have it, this book is a great idea! I learnt more about life reading this book than I ever did in high school! It teaches you about spending money, credit cards, insurance, and so much more. You can get this at Chapters for roughly $30.00.

Music Favourite:

Work Song by Hozier 

I heard this song on the music section on YouTube and fell in love with it!

Agenda from Chapters

I know this seems like a “what the heck” moment but my agenda is a life savers! I never used it in school but with adulthood you kind of need one. I know you can put everything in your phone but I’m the type of person who likes to have it all laid out in front of me, just makes things easier! You can get your agenda at Chapters for roughtly $12.00-$22.00.

My Skin Care Routine

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had sensitive skin. I break out easy if I didn’t wash my face, using harsh soaps or face washes would burn my skin, the sun was a sure guarantee to burn my face (but that’s mostly because of my Welsh/Irish background) and then I found out I’m allergic to perfumes/smelly products. The search for the perfect face product seemed to be impossible.

My face took a toll with trial and error but one day my Mum came home with a product called Cetaphil and I never went back.

The Cetaphil line is very simple, soaps and lotions and I find that’s all you really need. I’m not the type of girl who wears a ton of makeup, I’d rather show my natural beauty and my freckles. To me people who don’t “have” freckles or cover them up just look freaky to me, I don’t mean to be rude but that’s just my opinion on it.

Lets get started into the actual routine, at night time I usually take off any make up I had on with whatever make up remover I’m using these days. After I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, you can use this bar for your face and entire body. Once I pat dry my face I use the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15. In my opinion all face lotions should have minimum SPF 15 in them, the sun is harsh and we need to protect ourselves.
Putting lotion on at night is important since it has more time to soak in and that’s when your body repairs itself, this includes putting lotion all over your body. Trust me, your skin will feel amazing.

In the morning, if I’m going to work I just splash some cold water on my face, since I work in a pool and will need to wash my face when I get home. If I’m going out though, I go through the same process as I do at night, wash and lotion.
Washing your face twice a day is max. for me, if you wash your face too much it’ll dry it out or worse make you completely break out; once in the morning and once at night.

There you have it. It not much but it works for my skin and my style of showing off your natural beauty. You are all beauty no matter what and no one should tell you otherwise.

Thanks for reading,

January Favourites 2015!

Yay! The first Monthly Favourites of 2015! Here we go…

Makeup Favourite

s1445105-main-Lhero

Ciaté Velvet Manicure

I actually got this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas but you can get it at Sephora for $30.00. I don’t do my nails often so I’m not so great at doing them at all, but this was pretty east to use and it looks great after. My favourite colour is purple so it’s even more of a bonus but the dark purple in this set is amazing.

Skin Care Favourite

cetaphil-127-gentle-cleansing-bar-400x400-imaeyxgs9qkbkfvz

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

This is just a regular bar of soap but it’s great for sensitive skin, all Cetaphil products are in my opinion. I mostly use this for my face, I found all other face products weren’t doing the job so I randomly tried it. It’s gentle so it makes your face actually feel clean, after I put the face lotion on that I wrote about before to finish the job. Unfortunately in Canada one bar can go for $7.00-$8.00 but in the States you can get a pack of 3 for the same price.

Hair Care

Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret

My sister got this as a Christmas gift but I’m the actual person who used it so far, I didn’t use it on myself, I used it on my sister’s hair. I watched reviews and how to use them online and people seemed to be struggling. I found it to be so cool and way faster than a normal curler. You can get it at your local drug store or beauty store if they have them. They are also on the expensive side for Conair products, it’s going for $90.00-$150.00 in Canada.

Body Favourite

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint Hand Soap (Deep Cleansing Hand Soap)

All my hand soaps are from this store, I find them to clean your hands well and they smell great. I love this one specifically because it’s relaxing to me, they also have stress relief things that are this scent.  At the store it’s $6.50 each but they always have a great deal on for getting a bunch of them.

Home Favourite

My Little Steamer Go Mini Hand Steamer

I actually saw this on a YouTube channel and thought it was so cool. I got it for Christmas but you can get it at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $24.99. It’s really easy to use, it works and it small enough to pack when you’re going away.

Music Favourite

Heart Upon My Sleeve by Avicii

It’s just a very cool song with what it sounds like an orchestra playing with a DJ. There’s no words just this amazing music, check it out.

Random Favourite

Nintendo-2DS-2

Nintendo 2DS – Red

My boyfriend got himself and I one each as early Christmas gifts, we got them refurbished on the Nintendo website for $75.00, in stores they’re going for $130.00. It’s pretty cool, all 3DS games work on it, you can face people you know online or if your sitting beside the person it just finds their DS. Pretty amazing and really fun.

Thanks for reading, hopefully you guys liked it and maybe helped you find something you might like! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you thought of them!

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara – Black

I love this mascara because it really doesn’t come off, I wash my face everyday and this bad boy is still there even after makeup wipes. It’s cheap, I got this at Target, I can’t remember how much it was but it’s way cheaper then others.

OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Organix Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner

I know I wrote about this in my last post but I am actually in love with this shampoo and conditioner. When I used it the first time my head felt amazing, I didn’t want to stop washing my head. It’s very refreshing and I love the smell.

Body Favourite

Victoria’s Secret Forbidden Perfume

I went to a bridal shower and this was left on my plate as a little gift and I fell in love with it. It smells amazing, it doesn’t make me break out, even my boyfriend loves the smell, it stays on for a long time, it’s just all around a good product. It is on the expensive side but it’s worth the money!

Home Favourite

3-Wick Candle- Watermelon Lemonade T

Bath & Body Works Watermelon Lemonade 

I am very picky when it comes to smells, and I love this one! Unfortunately they change their candles for the seasons so you can only get it in the summer if they have that product again. I really hope they do, I mean I have enough to last me until them anyways but I would like to buy another one.

Music Favourite

Mockingjay-Part-1-Original-Motion-Picture-Score-Art-1024x1024

The Hanging Tree by James Newton Howard 

In the movie it’s sung by Jennifer Lawrence and it’s the best song I’ve heard. You can buy it on iTunes or go see the movie and get the full effect!
