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 

Thank you Lorry  xxx

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

Farleyco made a girl very happy recently; they graciously sent this craving makeup junkie the best gift ever: new beauty goodies to try!!! Honestly, it like giving someone on a diet a big Chocolate Easter Bunny… Not only did I receive a perfume, new sponges, brushes, nail & cuticle finger masks but, I also got something for BeardMan. Brace yourself, the boyfriend gets to make in own review in this post (that’s a first)!!!

Enough chit-chat, let’s get to the fun stuff…

7th Heaven Strengthen Nail & Cuticle Finger Masques 🐰

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

“Wave goodbye to distressed, damaged nails with our finger nail strengthening masks. With nourishing Argan and Macadamia oils and anti-oxidant rich Pomegranate. These little wonders will help revitalise and condition your nails.” (From the website)

I must confess, I treat my hands so poorly, no wonder my nails are brittle, dry and cracked all over (it hurts so bad)! I was very excited to try my first product from 7th Heaven and treat my nails and cuticles with these masques. They needed all the help they could get…

After just one treatment, I felt my nails were so hydrated, they were longing for more. I’ll have to buy some more; I’m very intrigued and I want to see the results after using it weekly for at least a month… An update should come soon!

Availability: At Farleyco ($4.99Cnd) and Rexall PharmaPlus

So…? Sinful (eau de toilette) 🐰

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

Top Notes: Mint and Pineapple
Heart Notes: Violet and Strawberry
Base Notes: Vanilla, Praline and Musk

This eau de toilette smells powdery on me, but in a sweet way and the aroma is very lovely. Daytime appropriate, it’s strong at first but after 15 minutes, it gets super mild and yummy!

Note: I must be allergic to an ingredient since it makes me cough and sneeze if I put it directly around my neck area. The solution was to apply it lower, on my chest area under my clothes, and voilà.

So…? perfumes, are really affordable compared to big name brands and frankly, this one smells just as good as some of my $100+ purchases. I was pleasantly surprised and Sinful has become one of my go-to fragrances. I’ve noticed that sometimes, with affordable fragrances, they don’t tend to last but this one does an honest job, lasting for at least few hours. Can’t beat the price: at my local Walmart, it’s $8.98Cnd 😳

Availability: At Walmart ($8.98Cnd)

Ecotools Perfecting Blender Duo 🐰

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

Well what do you know!!! These sponge-type blenders from Ecotools are actually so good that in my opinion, they give the real thing (i.e. Beauty Blenders) a run for their money. And at $15.99Cnd, they are a steal (nearly 50% less than the $28Cnd Beauty Blender price tag). To test their durability, I’ve washed them everyday for the past two weeks and after 14 straight washes, there are no signs of tearing (I will update you after 2 months)! I love the way it’s shaped; I find myself using the edges for blending and the square sides for my eyes, noses and to contour.  I HIGHLY recommend them!

Availability: At Farleyco ($15.99Cnd)

Real Techniques by Sam and Nic – Eye Shade + Blend 🐰

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

HIP HIP, HOORAY!!! I can’t believe that Real Techniques finally heard us and made these wonder brushes part of a duo. Before, we needed to buy the RT Eye Starter Set if we wanted the Deluxe Crease brush and the Base Shadow Brush but honestly, the three other brushes included in this set were not favorites of mine; I used to have them, but unfortunately, those three just didn’t make the “Decluttering Cut”. On the other hand, I love these two brushes that I previously bought 3 sets just to get them. I’ve had the Base Shadow and Deluxe Crease brushes for more than three years now, have washed them weekly and they still look brand new! No shedding, WOW!

Base Shadow Brush

I use it everyday, mainly to apply eyeshadow onto my lower lashes. I’ve tried so many others but I always comeback to this one.

Deluxe Crease Brush

If you love cream shadows (read here my beloved MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pots), you will be amazed at how easy it is to apply a cream shadow with the Deluxe Crease Brush.

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

Note: From my picture, if you are wondering why is there some badly applied nail polish on the handle well, it just to differentiate them: one is for MAC Soft Ochre, the other one for Painterly and the last one for Camel Coat 😛! Told you I was obsessed!

If you still haven’t try Real Techniques brushes, you should but go for their regular line instead of the Bold Metal Collection. They are more affordable, Cruelty-free and seriously, some are as good as high-end counterparts. Total LOVE!

Availability: At Farleyco ($15.99Cnd) , Walmart and Rexall

 Johnny’s Chop Shop Beard Oil

Farleyco Beauty Box | 2017 Goodies

OK, first of all, first time user of a Beard Oil, but mostly, first time blogger (so don’t expect too much)! When Ingrid told me to try this, I was sceptic: Oil in my beard, WTF! But honestly, it’s really soothing. I don’t wear my beard too long; it’s more a David Beckam beard than a Grizzly Adams look, but still, it felt really nice! I usually wait a few days to trim my beard and after a week or so without cutting it, my skin itches like crazy but, with this oil, I have to admit that it felt really different. Plus, it smells nice without being overwhelming. If I wanted to grow my beard like you see everywhere now, with this oil it would be possible, but with my height, if it grows longer, I’ll look like a dwarf in “Lord of the Rings”. I also used it to shave my neck area instead of my usual shaving cream. I guessed it worked OK but I feel that hairs stick much more to the blade with the oil…

*Their website is SOOOOO freaking cute, go and have a look*

Availability: At London Drugs

Note: Ingrid rewrote everything! What can I say, she is the Artist in the family…

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

First thing first, thank you so much to  Farleyco to have made my day! I just received a superb parcel containing the cutest makeup bag ever and a lovely body mist.

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

Recently my Canadian friends, you may have noticed that when exploring the beauty aisles of your favorite drugstores (Brunet, Uniprix & Familiprix in Quebec – IDA, Guardian, London Drugs, Pharmasave & Lawtons Drugs in the rest of Canada) that these pharmacies are now carrying the Classic Zoella Beauty Line. I’ve been eyeing them for a while now, because let’s face it, the packaging is adorable, totally girly and quite frankly the makeup bags are among the cutest I ever seen.

You don’t know who Zoella is? Well, Zoe Elizabeth Sugg is a 26-year-old English fashion and beauty vlogger, YouTuber and now entrepreneur extraordinaire. With her 11 million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone, she is at the top in terms of popularity and social media reach. A phenomenon that started in 2009 and like they say, the rest is history!

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016


Zoella Favourite Things Beauty Bag

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

This coral pop cosmetic bag from Zoella Beauty is the perfect treat. It features some of Zoe’s favourite things (from cupcakes to candles!) while giving you a handy place to keep yours. All with an extra touch of sparkle! (Farleyco description)

I know I’m a grown woman (but so young at heart), but what can I say, I’m in love with this makeup bag; it’s ridiculously adorable and totally me. I secretly wish that I had design this cuteness. I already filled it up with my essential makeup products and it went right in my purse so I have it with me ALL THE TIME (told you I went gaga over it)!

Note: Since this bag has beautiful glitter prints, I’ve tested how resistant it is by scratching quite hard and so far, those glitters don’t seem to budge and rub off (Thank God, that would have crushed me)! What can I say, I had to test it to give you an honest review (everything for my readers!!!).


Zoella Beauty Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist 

Zoella Beauty Review & Giveaway/Concours ✰ 2016

Surround yourself with serene scent and let relaxation begin. Spray this super light and feminine spritz to scent your body with fresh and floral notes. Enriched with Vitamin E and fruit extracts – bliss in a bottle. (Farleyco description)

My first impressions are on the packaging (again): yes it’s super cute but I was more surprised at how it is nicely made and how heavy it is. It’s rugged but still girly, perfect for traveling or to carry in purse, large bag or like me, a U-Haul sized leather thing… This body mist has a nice fresh, sweet and subtle floral scent well suited to everyone’s tastes. It smells like white florals with a crisp freshness that bring flower fields and the great outdoors to mind. Since it’s a body mist and not a perfume, it only lasts for a few hours (maximum 3 hours) but that’s fine with me. I will use it after the gym or at night, after my shower since it smells so clean and fresh. I can see schoolgirls (or schoolgirl-minded women) wearing it as their fragrance.

Note: Like always, fragrances are so personal, that you have to experience it to see if it’s the right fit. Personally, this is one of the few fragrances that smells better on the skin than from the bottle.

Here is the complete line of product…
