These are the products that I’ve finished during the months of August, September and October, plus my thoughts and recommendations. As usual I will use my exclusive BEE rating system. BEE Shopping, Positive BUZZ, or BUZZ Off.
Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer works great to keep eye shadows from creasing, but for some reason this product seeps into my eyes and puts a weird film on my contact lenses. It took me ages to figure out what eye product was causing this issue. This may not happen to other people, but if it’s happened to you, please let me know in the comments below.
They’re Real Mascara from Benefit is one of my favourites and I highly recommend trying it out. The small bristles at the tip of the wand are perfect for getting those lashes that might get missed using the wand in the regular way. Stays on all day without flaking or clumping.
Mary Kay Facial Cleansing Cloths are fantastic when you are in a hurry or to take travelling. They already contain the cleanser so you just need to get them wet to wash your face. I always have these on hand.
Rose Face Mask from Fresh smelled so good! I really enjoyed pampering my skin because it felt so soft afterwards. This was the other half of my Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift. This is on my Christmas Wish List.
Mary Kay Blemish Control Toner is a must have in my beauty arsenal. I only use this when I have pimples and it helps clear them up quickly with the salicylic acid it contains. It can be used twice daily if you have continued issues with blemishes which is what I did through my teens and twenties.
Marcelle Revival Firming + Brightening Cream Serum was one of the products I received from Elle Canada for the Beauty Grand Prix 2016. I enjoyed using this and feel my skin was brighter with consistent use.
100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream had a fun coffee scent to it. It’s really for puffiness which I don’t suffer from so I can’t say whether or not it works for that. You need to use this up fairly quickly (3-6 months) or it’ll go bad like mine did. I found it hydrating and would use it again.
Elizabeth Grant Encapsulated Vitamin C with hydra-moist Eye Creme worked really well but I had so many eye creams at once that it went bad before I could finish it all up. I used the rest of my arms and legs until it was empty. I found this eye cream moisturizing so would use it again.
Zoella Beauty Fizz Bar Fragranced Bath Fizzer. I got these for Christmas 2015 in my stocking from my husband. I really liked using these and have asked for them again this year. For those in my local area you can purchase Zoella beauty products at the Pharmacy in West Lorne.
hair colour. If you are looking for something you can do yourself at home, then give this a try. I haven’t noticed much age defying, but I did like the colour.
Arm & Hammer Pro Sensitive Whitening with Baking Soda in Frosted Mint is our favourite toothpaste. We have back ups and I’ve put this on our Christmas lists for stocking stuffers. Who else gets toothpaste in their stockings?
