Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer

I got this as a mini to start practicing and try out different things when it came to makeup. I have extremely dry skin so I need something moisturizing and this definitely is but me having dry skin it absorbs quickly. I got the mini for $20.00 at Sephora.

Hemp Hard Working Face Protector

This product was suggested when I got another product that could potentially dry out my face and I needed a new cream since my other was making me start to break out. This face cream works wonders, it heavy duty but not heavy on your face, and it helps protect against the elements. I got this at The Body Shop for $14.00.

Brilliant Damage Control

This pre-style spray helps protect against breakage that can get caused by brushing/combing and heat styling. As anyone knows I love Aveda products and this also works wonders to detangle the hair. You can get this at any Aveda store, salon or concept salon for $33.00.

Ikea VARIERA Plastic Bag Dispenser

Smashbox Photo Finish Reduce Redness Primer

I got this as a start primer to my journey of getting into makeup. I do have redness in my face so this was a good start. I don’t like having stuff on my face so getting use to it would be hard but I didn’t find this to be too heavy which is what I liked about it. You can get this at Sephora for mini size $20.00.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I know Tea Tree oil has been written about before on my blog but that was awhile ago. I got this because at times my chin will break out and it drives me up the wall. So I went to the body shop to see if they had something for me, the last time I got the stick but this time I got the oil which is more concentrated. It makes them smaller and gets rid of them way faster then just waiting for them to go away with washing my face. I got this at the Body Shop for $13.00 for the small bottle.

Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo

This shampoo is clay based to help fine, limp hair look more voluminous! It works as a pair the shampoo and conditioner so unfortunately you shouldn’t just use the shampoo and a different conditioner because you won’t be getting the full effect. You can get this at any Aveda salon or store for $24.00.

St. Ives Shower Foam

This product for me was a struggle, first off I only ended up buying it because they were out of my normal shower version of this. I used it but I found that I had to use a lot of it in order to feel clean because it’s foam so it disappears fast. Other than that it was good, it’s soft and skin feels great after. You can get this at Walmart for $6.00.

Ikea Foljaren Shower Curtain

I needed a new shower curtain and I’ve always liked Ikea’s because you can wash them so my boyfriend and I picked this one. My house has a lot of brand and nude colours so I’m trying to make it lighter and brighter, especially the bathroom. I got this for $15.00.

The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Product Review

Hey everyone! I am the sister of Maeg and will be writing a guest review on some of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Products.

I was recommended to try this products from my mother and stepfather; as I not only have some light acne but also have blemishes to the point where my entire face is red.

Three of the products I will be writing about I purchased in a set for $ 36.00 CDN. They included the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash, the Tea Tree Clearing Toner, and finally the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion.

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash

tea-tree-skin-clearing-facial-wash_l

I enjoyed this product as it does clear away the dirt in your skin when you use it. I use this product while in the shower allowing my pores to open up more ensuring that the product will remove any excess oils.

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner

tea-tree-skin-clearing-toner_l

Out of all the Tea Tree products I’ve tried so far this has to be my favourite. I use this not only for my face but my body as well. If I have a few zits creep up on me I just use this product and within a few days they are gone. Definitely removes any excess dirt from the any. Best advice apply with a clean cloth. The only downside to this product is you have to shake it every time in order to activate the ingredients.

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion

tea-tree-skin-clearing-lotion_l

I honestly do not use this product much as the rest of the line, as it has moisturizing ingredients. I would only recommend this product if you have dry skin.

There are three remaining products that I have tested out and they are as follows:

Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub

tea-tree-scrub_l

I use this product only once to twice a week. I’ve had some pretty bad experiences in the past with exfoliators or scrubs, because of this I didn’t want to over do it with this product. Most scrubs I’ve used in the past have dried out my face. This scrub is not as harsh as those, and does contain some moisturizing features. This product cost $15.00.

Tea Tree Gel

tea-tree-blemish-gel_l

I use this as a spot treatment for  my blemishes. I do have rosacea so I am constantly red in the face. This gel does do the job, however it does not do anything in terms of zits or acne. This product cost $11.00.

Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion

2243373

This product is great for blemishes and super easy to use. All you do is put the lotion on before bed (enough to cover your entire face) and go to sleep. When you wake up the next morning you are completely blemish free. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who doesn’t want to do a lot of work in order to get a blemish free face. This product cost $19.00.

Thanks for reading, until next time.
