CLR Bath and Kitchen Cleaner

When this first came out I wasn’t a believer what so ever but we recently did a mini mirror upgrade on our bathroom to get things off the counter, we ended up having some rust on the counter from metal getting wet. I let the CLR soak for 5 mins and rub off about 3 times and it was complete gone. I was so impressed because the rust stain would have drove me crazy. You get can get this at Walmart and other stores for $9.00.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Custard

I’ve slowly been getting into more makeup other then lips and mascara, which comes with concealer! I decided to try Nars and love it, the only thing is you don’t need a lot!

Sephora Eye Lash Curler

As I wrote before I comb my lashes before curling them, I curl them with a simple eye lash curler from the Sephora Brand. There’s not much to say about a eye lash curler, it does it’s job and it’s not that bad of the price at $19.00.

Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask

Recently I’ve been getting into more skin care and masks as my face is losing it’s mind as we get closer to the holidays.

Pramasana Scalp Care

Once again Aveda products are my favourite when it comes to hair care, and to have the best hair care you have to have a healthy scalp. Pramasana is a 3 step at home scalp treatment. Step 1. Exfoliating Scalp Brush, work around in circles on your scalp which helps remove build up. Step 2. Purifying Scalp Cleanser, you can use on dry or wet hair, use like you would shampoo all over the scalp, rinse, shampoo with regular shampoo, condition. This helps cleanse and exfoliates to help balance sebum. Step 3. Protective Scalp Concentrate helps balances sebum levels and helps protect the scalp. After coming out of the shower part clean hair and use dropper, cover head with small drops and massage in. This product helps HUGE when it comes to all scalp issues, unfortunately it doesn’t come cheap, Step 1 is $30, step 2 is $45 and step 3 is $57. If you can’t afford them all separability Aveda salons will have the treatment that they can do for you for roughly $30.

Body Care:

Cool Shower Water

Believe it or not in Canada when it gets super cold everything gets dry; hair, lips, eyes and our skin. I don’t know about other ladies but I myself loves a good hot shower but that doesn’t sit well with my skin. I constantly have to remind myself to not have a boiling hot shower even though it feels good at the moment, I know it will dry my skin out and cool shower water will help that.

Quo Brow and Lash Brush/Comb 

I got this brush to help comb my lashes to make sure they’re straight before curling them and to brush my brows so they’re not crazy. It’s a small step butmajor steps, there’s nothing worse then waking up looking crazy so this simple brush/comb helps that. I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $14 a long time ago so the prices may be different now.

Aveda Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator

This is new to Aveda and we’re obsessed. Speed of Light is a detangler, heat protector, reduces breakage and it blow dries your hair faster. Now if you have fine hair your hair will dry fast already and if you have a lot (I’m talking log size pony tail) it will take awhile to dry your hair. You can get this at Aveda salons and stores for $42.

Shhhowercap 

I have previously bought a cheap shower cap and loved it but as cheap is, it doesn’t last long. It started to get loose and the water was getting in so I had to get a new one since I don’t wash my everyday. I found this one at Sephora and decided to spend the money to try it out, money well spent. I love this showercap and it’s still tight and stays on my head. You can get this online at Sephora for $54

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Cruella

I got this lip pencil as a part of a set, I also have this in a different colour. I like them, I’ve heard some bad things about it saying it comes off in flakes but I’ve haven’t had that problem plus I believe anything matte is drying so you need to make sure your lips are nice and moisturized! This is a good product though, it stays on and colour lasts. You can get this at Sephora for $34.00.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

I got this when I got the Sephora Favourites for Dry Skin. I was skeptical of this product at first since I just thought it was going to make my skin extremely oily but it didn’t, then I was surprised at how many things you can use this product for. The list of things you can you it for, as Sephora recommends are:
-For face: warm two to four drops in your hands and lovingly press the oil into your skin day and night. Use on top of serums and creams
-For under-eye area: use to intensely hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
-For hair: use to treat split ends and minimize flyaways.
-For nails: use to condition cuticles.
-For body: use to firm skin soften rough patches.

I have used it on my face and it didn’t make it oily, probably because you’re only pressing it on your face and not rubbing a lot into it. This product lasts a very long time depending on how much you are using it and for where but I do recommend this. You can get this at Sephora for $60.00 for standard size, $20.00 for the mini.

Aveda Pramasana Exfoliating Scalp Brush

This is the first part of a multi-step treatment for your scalp. Dry brushing the scalp is the first step to cleaning the scalp, it helps loosen build up and also increases circulation. The brush feels amazing, as you look in the picture they’re loops that dry brush the scalp this helps loosen the build up. You can get this treatment in an Aveda salon but you can also get this for home for $30.00.

Spring Miriradia – Dark Beige Smooth

I got these because I have a “fall verison” of these and I wanted a pair that I could wear in the summer. These are super comfortable shoes, it shocks me when I put heels on and they’re already comfortable to start with. They’re easy to walk in and stay on your foot, it’s a great summer sandal. Spring is a great store, I got these for $59.99.

Simons Shower Cap 

I randomly saw this when I was at Simons shopping for clothes but fell in love with it since (a) it has cats on it, (b) it was $5 and (c) I needed a shower cap cause my hair was getting wet. Now I don’t wash my hair everyday, I just use to put my hair in a bun and hope I was good enough at not getting my hair wet. Some days I was and some days I failed. This works wonders but I have to say eventually it does scratch out eventually after using it for a bit but what do you want for $5! It works, it keeps my hair dry! You can get this at Simons for $5.00.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick – Spice

I love finding new lipsticks to try even though I don’t wear it to often, it’s just something good to have around for me; plus when I dress up sometimes I’ll throw a nice lip on. I found Anastasia’s lipstick in the check out line, it came in a mini set of 4 which I fell in love with the spice one! Now I’ve heard that the lipstick ‘flaked’ off but I haven’t had that problem with this. It is matte so it does tend to dry out your lips but I find that happens with all matte lipsticks. You can get this at Sephora for $23.00.

Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel

Our skin constantly changing and it’s a pain in the butt. As most of you know I have dry, sensitive skin so finding products that work for me is a challenge. I once again changed my skin care routine (which a new post is coming!) because my skin changed again. I got this a mini tester almost but I decided to give it a shot since I’ve heard good things from this brand. I love it, it doesn’t irritate my skin, doesn’t dry it out, it’s just perfectly clean. I liked it so much I used the small bottle and now I’m on to the big bottle. You can get this at Sephora for $37.00.

Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Masque 

This is an intense moisturizing masque that uses buriti oil to help put hydration back into the hair. This is a part of Aveda’s Dry Remedy line, they have mulitple lines for different needs. I used this when I was a lifeguard since the chlorine just ruins your hair and now I use it because I bleach my hair. With Aveda a little goes a long way so this bottle will last you a long time. You can get this at Aveda stores or salons for $47.00.

Bionaire Ultra Thin Window Fan 

Summer is around the corner, well in Canada we actually had a week of summer already, and not having AC sucks! I’ve had this fan for a couple years now and it’s the bomb.com. You can use this fan two ways: 1. Have the fans push the hot air out of your room to outside. 2. Have the fan suck the cold air into your room. How do you do this? Turn the fan around depending on which way you want it. On hot days I set it up to have the hot air sucked out of my room and by the time I come home from work my room isn’t as hot as it would be with nothing. Now it’s not as good at an AC but it works, my room isn’t that big so there’s point to get an AC. You can get this at Walmart for $50.00.

This brush is made to work with wet hair that’s super tangled, it’s made to brush the hair easy without breakage or pain.

Quo Dual Ended Blackhead Remover

Don’t you just love popping zits or blackheads with your fingers? Yep, we all do but it’s actually bad for your skin. Quo from Shoppers Drug Mart has a tool that’ll do it for you without harming your skin or pushing more bacteria into your face (assuming you clean your tools)!

Hair Care Favourite: 

silver-shine-shampoo-300mlMilk_Shake Silver Shine Shampoo

Ever since I became a blonde (almost white) I’ve needed a purple shampoo to help keep it blonde! Silver Shine is a purple shampoo, for those of you who don’t know what a purple shampoo is, I will explain!
When you lift your hair (bleach and tone, highlights, balayage) there is a natural remaining pigment. If your hair is black, dark brown, medium brown, or light brown when you lift your hair it will lift red. If your hair is a dark blonde, medium blonde or light blonde it will lift red/orange, orange, and yellow/orange. Now if your hair is very light or almost white your hair lifted to yellow and pale yellow, which brings you to where my hair was before we toned it – yellow. To get rid of the yellow your toner will have to have violet in it (ash). Now sorry to break it to you but toner FADES, no matter what a hairstylist tells you it will fade, unless you buy shampoo that will help it. I’ve toned my hair once and used this purple shampoo (to keep yellow away) and it works wonders but I will have to tone my hair soon because it only does so much. You can get this at Trade Secrets for $28.00.
