Farleyco | Ecotools, 7th Heaven, Modèle, Purple Tree, Beauty Lash & MesmorEyes

Farleyco sent me new products to try and I was really ecstatic to test them. Previous  shipments produced some real Holy Grail products (ex.: Flexitol Lip Balm) and I was eager to see if I would discover a hidden gem in these new goodies! Let’s find out shall we?

Farleyco

Let’s talk about these new goodies…

EcoTools Facial Mask Mates (10,99$) 🐰

EcoTools Facial Mask Mates (Farleyco)

Environmentally-friendly bamboo handle of the Mask Applicator Brush has soft, flat, cruelty free bristles that evenly apply cream, gel, or clay masks for full, even coverage – mess free.

Three reuseable Mask Remover Sponges, made from natural plant pulp, help to remove excess product while gently exfoliating the skin for a smoother, more radiant appearance.

Who needs a brush to apply your face masks? Not me… or so I thought! Never in a million years would I have ever spent my hard-earned money on this product since I already have all the tools I need (aka my dandy little fingers)! But, Oh! boy was I wrong! After trying this, I can’t imagine not having this brush: it’s so easy and way less messy to apply masks. This is a sure WINNER!

EcoTools Facial Mask Mates

As for the sponges, I could truly kick myself for never considering using these to take off my masks. It’s always time-consuming to rinse a mask with only water but these sponges make it a breeze to clean every little drop of product. So, thank you Farleyco for making my masks’ experience way more enjoyable now! A+++

Available: Select Brunet, Familiprix, Guardian, IDA, Pharma Choice, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall, Uniprix, Value Drug Mart & Farleyco 

Purple Tree Papaya Miracle Balm (6.99$) 🐰

Purple Tree Papaya Miracle Balm

Its multi-purpose formula can also be used to protect brittle nails and cuticles, and for cosmetic finishes such as taming eyebrows and elongating the appearance of eyelashes.
Made in the UK using key natural ingredients, Purple Tree Miracle Balms are suitable for all skin types and are an essential handbag item. 

I REALLY like this multifunctional, “Jack of all Trade” natural balm. I have used it with great results for dry knuckles, fixing my brows and for my cuticles. It also doesn’t hurt that this product smells divine. A handy product to say the least, with great ingredients like natural Papaya extracts, Honey and Safflower Oil.

Note: For the lips it’s wonderful but the scent is almost to strong for my personal preference.

Available: Select Lawtons Drugs, London Drugs, Overwaitea, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall & Farleyco

Modèle Collagen Lip Treatment (29.99$)🐰

Modèle Collagen Lip Treatment

Modèle Collagen Lip Treatment restores lip volume, reduces the signs of aging and helps retain moisture.

Time will tell if a regular use of this lip treatment will plump my lips, but frankly, I couldn’t care less! I totally love its hydrating effect and it really soothes my poor chapped lips. The fact that it’s a “bullet lipstick” format is a plus since it’s really easy to apply. I have used it daily for a week now and I’m totally addicted to the softness of my now very much kissable lips 😉

Available: Select Guardian, IDA, Jean Coutu, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall & Farleyco 

BeautyLash Brow Tint Kit (19,99$)

– 4 shades available: Light Brown, Medium Brown , Dark Brown & Black

BeautyLash Brow Tint Kit

BeautyLash Tinting Kit tints eyelashes and eyebrows draw attention to your eyes without appearing artificial. Eyelashes are longer and eyebrows are being enhanced and receive a clear and defined outline. Grey or white hair is covered up completely and shine in new, fresh colour. The new 2-step tinting system makes it possible to tint eyelashes and eyebrows on your own in only 2 steps. The colour lasts up to 6 weeks and is smudge and water resistant!

I consider myself a professional eyebrow dyer. I do it regularly to cover the gray hairs popping once in a while (4 to be exact), and also to add definition and density to my sparse and light brows. If you never did it, you must try it since it makes a world of difference for framing your face. I’ve been using Just for Men for years now, with great results, and I have to say that this medium Brown color is better for my “caramel” hair color. I must say that I now prefer this BeautyLash product because it’s a very gentle, plant-based formula. The company states that each package is good for about 8 uses but from personal experience, each one will last you double that amount. For reference, I dye mine once a month!!! New favorite for sure…

BeautyLash Brow Tint Kit

Note: It’s also safe to use to dye your lashes but I choose not to test it since I’m clumsy and I’m pretty sure I would get it all over my eyeballs 😀

Available: Select Pharmasave & Farleyco

7th Heaven Creamy Coconut Face Mask (1,99$) 🐰

7th Heaven Creamy Coconut Face Masque

We’ve harnessed the hydrating goodness of fresh Coconut Water and added lots of lovely ingredients to moisturize and hydrate, including super smoothing Shea butter.

These 7th Heaven Masks are affordable and really enjoyable. This particular one did tingle a lot for the first 5 minutes but afterward, it was quite nice! As a result, my skin felt super clean and very hydrated. I also tested it on BeardMan (since there were some product left, and results were the same). A nice product to have, and smells good too!

Available: Select Brunet, Jean Coutu, Proxim, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall, Lawtons Drugs, Value Drug Mart& Farleyco

MesmorEyes Collections (12,99$) 

– Almond, Hooded, Monolid or Round Shape Eyes –

MesmorEyes Collections

New Collections by MesmorEyes – the only Lash Kit with 3 sets of lash styles (‘Day’, ‘Play’ and ‘Night’) selected for your unique shape. Collections by MesmorEyes has created a first of its kind programme that specifically tells you which false eyelashes suits your eye type.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I suck at putting on false eyelashes to the point that I stopped trying. Although I wanted to review these, I ask one of my hooded-eyed friend that usually rocks falsies to test them. She told me that they were very comfortable to wear and perfectly shaped for her eye! They were so fantastic that, at that price, she bought another kit…

MesmorEyes Collections

Available: Amazon.ca Prime, Select Pharmasave, Guardian IDA,  Value Drug, Value Drug Mart Stores & Farleyco

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kits | Wrinkles & Breakouts – Wrinkles & Sun Damage 

transparent_snowflakes_clipart

Paula's Choice

In 2016, Paula’s Choice became my favorite skincare brand; her Resist line agrees so much with my skin, it gave a new meaning to skincare and brought a radiant glow, without any breakouts or irritations. On another note, if you’ve been religiously reading my blog, you know I love trial kits. So, what do you think happened when I received those little sets that let you try different products (in this case four) to add to your morning and night routine. I was (am) ecstatic!!!

Spoiler alert: I might have just found Holy Grail products in these two sets. They would make perfect gifts for the coming Holidays, or a perfect size to try before committing to a full size format.

Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kit Wrinkles & Breakouts - Wrinkles & Sun Damage

Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin ($39)

A two-week travel kit of the RESIST anti-aging essential skincare routine for normal to dry skin. These products replenish moisture to combat dryness while refining the appearance of wrinkles and skin tone for a younger, revitalized-looking appearance.

Resist Anti-Aging Trial Kit Wrinkles & Breakouts - Wrinkles & Sun Damage

This trial kit is formulated for normal to oily skin but all four products are ideal for my combination to dry skin situation… They are so perfect, I’m really overwhelmed by their formulas! It’s a case of Love at First Application…

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Oily Skin

Cleanser: Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser (Full Size $19 for 6.4oz)

If you enjoy a very soft but effective cleanser that produces a nice rich foam (perfect to use with the Clarisonic or Foreo), then you need to try this product! Definitely doesn’t suck all the moisture out of your skin!

Exfoliant: Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2%BHA (Full Size $33 for 3oz)

I’m always a little afraid of using products with Salicylic Acid in it. Normally, they irritate my skin a lot but when using this treatment only where I have the largest pores (my nose, cheeks and forehead), it does a wonderful job of purifying these problematic zone.

Moisturizer: Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

This gel type formula is so refreshing; it absorbs very quickly (less than 5 minutes) and leaves your skin moisturized and soft as a baby’s butt! Totally LOVE this one; it’s a keeper for my daily regimen.

Moisturizer + SPF: Resist Youth-Extending Daily Mattifying Fluid SPF 50 ($33 for 2 oz)

To this date, this product is by FAR the best sunscreen I’ve ever tried in my life. During those last few years, I was on a (well documented) hunt for the perfect moisturizer with SPF. I have tried so many different products, from drugstores to high-end to even luxury products and most of them failed miserably or were just OK with some major flaws. This  Resist Fluid is the product I thought I’d never find. NO breakouts, NO white cast, it dries very quickly (I mean 1 minute quick) and doesn’t disturb your makeup. And as an added bonus, it’s mattifying without drying you up!

Note: The formula is more a liquid than a cream, so don’t press the tube too much, like I did the first time!

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Oily Skin

I Highly Recommend all these products but the sure winners are without a doubt the two moisturizers. There is no way I will ever be without these, EVER. Compared to their high-end counterparts, these Paula’s Choice products are affordable, cruelty-free, non-irritating, fragrance-free amazingness and effective as no other brands on the market.

Silver Border

Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Dry Skin ($39)

A two-week travel kit of the RESIST anti-aging essential skincare routine for normal to dry skin. These products replenish moisture to combat dryness while refining the appearance of wrinkles and skin tone for a younger, revitalized-looking appearance.

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit For Normal to Dry Skin

This second trial kit is formulated for normal to dry skin but again all four products are perfect for my combination to dry skin situation…

Cleanser: Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser (Full Size $19 for 6.4oz)

If you are someone who prefers a cleanser that doesn’t foam but leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh then you will very much prefer this cleanser. I use it as my first step in my double cleansing method (I prefer a foaming formula with my cleansing tools).

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

Exfoliant: Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment 5% AHA (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

This is a gentle AHA exfoliant that leaves the skin very soft to the touch and works beautifully at restoring uneven skin. The consistency is so nice and again, dries so quickly. Perfection even for sensitive skin!

Moisturizer: Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer (Full Size $33 for 1.7oz)

I use this moisturizer at night since it contains RETINOL. It’s the best moisturizer to seal  your serum, essence or face oil for your nighttime routine. How awesome is the fact that you can also use it around your eye area!

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

Moisturizer + SPF: Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 ( Full Size Available Spring 2017)

This creamy textured moisturizer sets up wonderfully my skin for my morning foundation, powders etc… It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy whatsoever and does the best job at protecting my skin from harmful sun rays. Where have you been all my life?

Paula's Choice Resist Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Skin

In summary…

Are you someone who travels a lot!? If so, these Travel Kits are for you! Are you just in need of different products that perform beautifully to try? Give these a try, you won’t regret it! On the other hand, if travel sizes are not your thing, well take my word for it and go for the full size; I can’t underline enough how impressed I am with these products and how affordable they are considering the quality. Just to tell you how dazzled I am with Paula’s Choice moisturizers with SPF, I will state loud and clear that they are the very best I’ve tried, and believe me, I’m not taking my skincare products lightly these days… Every product included in these Kits  would make a great gift for you or a loved one.

Note: For the man (men) in your life, there is also PC4MEN Travel Kit ($30)

First Impressions ❥ Arbonne RE9 Advanced & Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Arbonne RE9 & Bite Beauty Lip Mask

When I look at my bathroom, there are beauty products everywhere: a huge cabinet full of products, a small table filled with counter cabinets hiding my palettes, eyeshadows and more, and 2 other organizers overflowing with all kinds of stuff; don’t even think about taking a bath, the tub serves as another storage area. My collection is overwhelming large but would you believe that my biggest obsession right now comes from 2 little samples, you know those little trial formats that we rarely use! Last week, I was out of town and I thought that it was the best time to try the Arbonne RE9 Collection offered as samples & Bite Beauty Lip Mask that have been in my cart forever…

♥ Arbonne RE9 Advanced Skincare ♥

Arbonne RE9 Line

This is by far the best sample I’ve ever seen! How clever is Arbonne to have created a perfect packaging that allows you to try an entire line for a week, with all the instructions/details written, and all the steps clearly identified for better results.

OK, a week-long trial doesn’t allow me to do an in-dept review but I still want to share my first impressions. All products, without exception, blew me away!

♥ The orange-scented cleanser is so refreshing.

♥ No breakout, no bad reaction…

♥ Every product dry up and penetrate  your skin so fast, it’s mind-blowing.

♥ After applying all five products before nighttime, I woke up the next day with my skin feeling unbelievably soft & moisturized.

♥ I swear my face felt so fresh and light.

Arbonne RE9 Line

Bottom Line : I’m hooked… 

Note: You should have seen me cutting open all those different tubes to retrieve all the products… I miss these like crazy! BeardMan has already received a special request for Mother’s Day (even though we don’t have any kids) plus, when he pays, it doesn’t destroy my Low-Buy budget!

♥ Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask ♥

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

First time, I saw that Bite Beauty made a Maple Agave Lip Mask, I had to have it. You know us, Canadians and Maple, it’s a match made in heaven! Even though I already have a ton of lip treatments to finish, it was always in the back on my mind. On my last Sephora order, I chose this sample and frankly jumped up and down when I received it since it was such a good size sample (3 different colours and approximately 3 use per colour). That’s what I call a good sample…

I’m in love with this “mask”; I wore it before going to bed and I swear, I woke up with the softest lips ever; I was so excited about the product that I even decided to sport it during the day too, but with mixed results since every little particles or hair were clinging to my lips!!

Bottom Line : I already purchased the full size.

Note: The only thing I hate is the packaging after many, many uses…
