• Ole Henrikson Walnut Scrub

    For the longest time I didn’t use a face exfoliator. I don’t know why. Maybe laziness? I just thought of it as a skincare step I didn’t need. But, during the Sephora Appreciation sale, I thought that I may as well pick one up and see if it does anything for my skin. I scoured all of the exfoliators, read all the reviews and landed on the Ole Henrikson Transforming Walnut Scrub.  Today I’ll be talking about my new exfoliator and how I like it.  The Ole Henrikson Walnut Scrub is a cleansing facial scrub. It is formulation with a blend of walnut powder, ginseng, and chamomile extracts. It is meant…

  • Beauty Empties

    Look at all my beauty trash! And no, I don’t mean everything I hate. I mean all of the products I have used up recently. And let me tell you, there is a lot of products up in here.

As soon as I do a post on all my empty products, it seems like I have another pile starting.  Anyways, today I’ll be talking all about the products I’ve used up recently and what I thought about them.  The Good:  Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate: This is probably my favourite day cream to use when my skin is dry.

  • June Beauty Favourites

    Finally summer is upon us in Halifax. We’ve had a good week of nice ish weather and I feel like summer is finally here. So, I’ve busted out all of my coral makeup items and I’ve been loving it. I don’t feel like its summer yet until I wear coral on my eyes, my cheeks, and my lips. Is that crazy of me?  So today I’ll be talking about a couple beauty products I have been loving this past month! I love a good face mist and what it adds to my skincare routine. I use a face mist instead of a toner because I find I can get more…

  • Water Face Powder? Ft. Becca Cosmetics

    Have you ever wanted to put on face powder and it be made of 50% water? Becca Cosmetics Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder has just answered all of your dreams. As a person with dry skin, I always dread putting face powder on because I know it has to set my foundation but it can also make me look super dry. If I apply to much it makes my face look cakey. If I don’t apply enough, my cheek products don’t blend out well enough.  When this super interesting product came out and I started to see reviews, I knew I had to try it.  The Becca Hydra-Mist Set &…

  • Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

    This concealer has been the talk of the beauty town for a while now. That is for one major reason: it is said to be a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. If you don’t know what that is, you have been living under a massive rock. Tarte Shape Tape is the best concealer known to mankind. If there is a concealer that is less expensive and just as good, you better believe I’m gonna pick that bad boy out and put it to the test.  This concealer is by an up and coming brand called Makeup Revolution. As far as I know, it’s only available at Ulta. Great…

  • Disappointing Products

    Do I love doing these posts? Yes and no. No, I don’t love hating on products which a company has worked hard to create but at the same time, I don’t love every single product I try. I try not to talk about bad products on my blog but sometimes I need to round up the ones that really disappointed me. This can either be because of the formula, the shade, it didn’t work for my skin, or other reasons.  So, today I’ll be talking about a few products that disappointed me.  First up might be a bit of a shock. I’m like most people in the fact that I…

  • Beauty Empties March 2018

    Ever wanted to see what’s in my garbage? No? Well, you’re about to. I go through product all the time and I think it’s fun to see what products beauty junkies actually use up completely. You get a really good idea of the product when you use the whole darn thing. I mostly use up skincare and body care stuff but I do finish the occasional makeup item.  If you’re interested to know what beauty products I’ve used up recently and what I think of them, keep on reading! The Good: The Simple Micellar Water is my favourite cleansing water. It also helps that it’s like $8 at the drugstore.…

  • Pamper Evening Go-To’s

    There is nothing I love more than having a little bit of self-love. I absolutely love spending a night pampering myself and doing but things I love to do. This usually includes eating chocolate, watching serial-killer documentaries, and doing the most skincare I can do.  If you want to know some of the things I do on my pamper nights, keep on reading.  Some people do pamper nights on specific nights of the weeks or on weekend nights but, since I work shift work I do them on completely random nights of the week. I try to do these pamper nights once a week or at least once every 2…
