Battle of the Garnier Micellar Waters

Battle of the Garnier Micellar Waters

I wrote a post a few months ago where I compared the Marcelle Micellar water with the Garnier Micellar water (see that post HERE), and basically I explained how amazing the Marcelle one was, and how useless the Garnier one was. #spoileralert When I finally ran out of the Garnier one, I went to the store to buy the Marcelle one, and again, I couldn’t find it! Walmart, you are letting me down with your selection! Anyways, beside the pink bottle of Garnier Micellar water I got last time, I saw there was a blue one. And upon closer investigation, I wondered if this could be the product I was looking for all along…

RachhLoves Spring Favourites Beauty Box: Review

RachhLoves Spring Favourites Beauty Box: Review

Rachel (AKA RachhLoves) is a Canadian YouTuber, and she is one of my absolute favourites. I don’t remember how exactly I came across her channel, but in the last two years I have become obsessed with YouTube, so it was only a matter of time. Rachel mostly makes makeup videos and Pinterest hack videos. What I love about her is her humour and her honesty. Watching her feels like you’re chatting to your best friend.

So when she announced she was coming out with a beauty box, I was super excited! I had never ordered a subscription box before, and I figured this was a good place to start.

April Favourites: Hair Care+Nails

April Favourites: Hair Care+Nails

April has been such a lovely month. The weather has been breaking 100-year-old records, and I even wore shorts once or twice this month! Although it seems to be cooling back down to regular spring temperatures for now, the hot weather has made me so excited for swimming in the lake this summer.

The majority of my favourites this month are hair-related, because I went on a quest a few weeks ago to find some better quality, colour-friendly products. I’ve been colouring my hair for the last three years, and I’ve been using the shampoos that say “for colour-treated hair,” but I recently discovered that most of those shampoos still have sulfate in them, which is apparently not good for your hair.

So let’s get into the favourites!

2015 Beauty Favourites

With winter comes snow, cozy sweaters, warm socks and hot chocolate. There is also something about winter that makes me more excited to try out new makeup looks. Maybe it’s because glitter and gold and dark lips are all the rage, and even though I usually keep my makeup pretty simple on a day-to-day basis, I do love getting glammed up!

My 2015 beauty faves cover a variety of skin care and makeup and are all products that I first discovered this year. I’m sure this list is not exhaustive, but these are some of my top-rated, most-used products of 2015. Take a look and let me know if you’ve tried any of these yourself! 🙂
