EasyDay Canada Product Review

What features do you look for in your sanitary products? Is it comfort? Absorption? Fragrance-free? EasyDay Canada have all these benefits and many more! ⁣

EasyDay Canada is a Canadian company that is run by a woman that offers comfortable and affordable sanitary pads.⁣

There are 6 keys benefits with their products: ⁣
1) Super absorbent⁣
2) Infection control⁣
3) Odor control⁣
4) Breathable⁣
5) Perfume-free ⁣
6) Hypoallergenic⁣

They have different type of liners and pads:⁣
Liners: Regular, long and thong⁣
Pads: Regular and Heavy Flow (Night time)⁣

I have been using EasyDay pads recently and I love them! I really like that they are thin and feel really comfortable. What is really interesting is that the liquid absorbs turns dry and feels gel-like.⁣

I also like the mission the brand and their products supports. Many girls in developing countries have to miss school during heir periods because they can’t afford sanitary products. In result, EasyDay Canada have partnered with Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) to provide health stamps to African countries. ⁣

My First Pixi Beauty PR package – Skintreats Review

I received a beautiful package from Pixi Beauty from their Skintreats collection about a month ago. First of all, I was super excited when I received this package! I have been a fan of Pixi beauty for a few years and I love everything about the brand from their packaging and how it is affordable. I first discovered the brand when I attended Ipsy’s Generation Beauty in Toronto in 2016. I have tried a few of their makeup products but so not much of their skin care line. Ever since that event, it was so hard to find the brand in my local stores.

Now, after a few weeks of trying each product from the Skintreats package, I want to talk about each one of them.

  1. DetoxifEYE: These are depuffing under eye patches. They kept my under eyes really hydrated and depuffed making me look more alive. Especially, I don’t get enough sleep with the little one! I also love that it included a little spatula.
  2. Glow Glycolic Boost Sheet Masks (3 sheets): I love sheet masks! They are a way for me to relax. These particular ones are infused with glycolic acid, ginseng and witch hazel. It made my skin feel really hydrated and smooth making it look more healthier.
  3. Peel & Polish: This product is amazing! It has a sugar-like texture that really deep cleans and exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells leaving the skin feeling really soft and smooth.
  4. T-Zone Peel-off Mask: I have an oily t-zone and this product is perfect for it. It helps draw out the oil and impurities making this area smooth and the pores look smaller.
  5. Glow Mud mask: I tried a sample of this in the past and I love it! It helps with those who have oily skin, breakouts and helps draw out dirt. After using it for a while, it leaves the skin looking more clear, bright and healthier.
  6. Lastly, it included a really soft towel for patting down the skin after rinsing out the products.

I just want to thank Pixi Beauty for sending me these lovely products to review. I love taking care of my skin and I love discovering new products! If you live in Canada and are interested in purchasing some Pixi products, you can check out Shopper Drug Mart/Pharmaprix or even the Pixi website for more information.

Burt’s Bees Products Review

For a while now, I have been loving all natural ingredients beauty products. They are better for your skin and overall good for you!

I recently received a Burt’s Bees mission complimentary of Topbox Circle.In my box, I received 6 full-sized products:

1) Lip & cheeks stick in Dahlia Dew⁣
2) Lip & cheeks stick in Suez Sands⁣
3) Highlighter stick in Opal Mist⁣
4) Bronzer stick in Bronze Splash⁣
5) Nourishing Mascara in Classic black⁣
6) Goodness Glows Liquid Foundation in Almond Beige⁣

Overall, the cheek & lip sticks and the bronzer & highlighter sticks have very subtle pigmentation. They are, however, really hydrating. In the center of the product, there is moisturizing component that may feel a little oily at first but it is really good for those who have dry skin. It left my skin and lips smooth and moisturized.

The foundation gave a light to medium coverage. It is build-able and it really evens out my skin tone. I also like that it comes with a pump.

The mascara has a lot of pigmentation. It also separates and lengthens my lashes a lot!

These products are all made with natural ingredients. They are formulated with no parabens, phthalates, sls, pretrolatum, talc or synthetic fragrances. They are also cruelty free!

I recommend these products to those who prefers natural looks and to those who are busy like myself who just have a few minutes to get ready!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Primer & Mascara Review

I received Marc Jacob’s Velvet primer and Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara for free from Influenster for reviewing purposes. I was really happy to be part of this Voxbox campaign especially that Marc Jacobs is known to be a high-end brand. Also, I love receiving mascaras to review!

I tested out these two products for about a week now and I am really impressed with the results. I have tiny and thin lashes that seems to be hidden in my lids. With these two products, it really gave my lashes length and volume. Check out my before & after photo below!

Velvet Primer – Epic Lash Primer

The first step is to apply the primer. I have never used a primer mascara before so it was quite an experience applying this product before the mascara. I noticed that the primer really helps lengthen and separate my lashes.  This product was easy to apply and the beige color helps to ensure that each lashes are nicely coated and prepared for the second step – the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.

Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara Next, I applied this mascara right after the Velvet Primer. I was really impressed with with how my lashes turned out. You can see there is a significant difference. With this mascara, it gave my lashes a lot of length and volume. It really shows that – Yes! I do have lashes! Lastly, I really like this type of brush because with previous experience, this type of brush tip gives results that I am looking for.

Overall, I really like these two products and I would recommend them to those who are looking for a primer & mascara duo that gives their lashes lots length and volume.Thank you again to Influenster and Marc Jacobs for this opportunity to review these two products.

Shahi Care Products Review

Are you looking for all natural and environmental friendly body care products to add to your skincare collection? You came to the right place! Today, I will be reviewing two products from Shahi Care: Organic lavender and mint hair and body bar soap & Organic lavender body butter.

Shahi Care is a small Montreal business that specializes in creating all natural and eco-friendly body care products. The company is founded by Shahinaz Youssef. She makes all her products by scratch and uses all-natural, organic, eco-friendly and fair traded ingredients. She is always researching to find ways to save the planet.

Organic Lavender and Mint hair & body bar soap

I have been using this bar soap for a few days now and so far I am loving it! I have only used it to wash my body but you can use for both hair and body. It is gentle on the skin and it smells really good! It leaves my skin really soft and moisturized. I also like that you can see the pieces of lavender buds. The brand’s logo is stamped on the soap which I find adds a nice touch!

Lavender Body Butter

The lavender body butter comes in a nice jar (80g). A small amount of product is all you need. At first, it feels a little greasy but the product absorbs quickly into the skin. Again, I love the lavender scent! It leaves my hands really hydrated and soft. I also love the jar. I will definitely reuse it!

Overall, I recommend these two products especially to those who are looking for all-natural body care products. I love all the ingredients used to create these products. I really admire the brand’s mission and values. I invite you to visit Shahi Care’s Etsy store and check out more of their products and read more about the brand. They also make candles, body scrubs and lip products!

Thank you again to Shahinaz for sending these products!

Nude by Nature Review

I received 6 full-size Nude by Nature products for free for testing purposes from TopBox Circle. This is by far the most generous mission from them! Nude by Nature is an Australian brand known for using 100% all-natural ingredients. There are no harsh chemicals and they are cruelty-free.

All products are made with Australian-native extracts, vitamins and essential oils like: Kakadu plum, Lilly Pilly, Shea Butter, Jojoba oil and vitamins A/C/E. Nude by Nature states that their makeup is good for you!

In my box, I received:
1) Contour palette
2) Highlight palette
3) Definition eyeliner (black liquid eyeliner)
4) Natural Illusion pressed eyeshadow (04 Sunrise)
5) Flawless concealer (03 Shell beige)
6) Concealer brush

Contour Palette

This palette has 3 beautiful matte shades for contouring the face. Each shade is used for a specific part to give dept and dimension.

  • The bronze (left) is to warm up the complexion.
  • The contour (middle) is to shade and define the face.
  • The highlight (right) is to give a luminosity

It gave my face a natural contoured look. The color payoff is nicely pigmented and it feels soft and silky. I also think that this palette can be used as eyeshadows for those natural looks!

Highlight Palette

These highlights are beautiful! Each shade is also for specific area of the face to add dimensions and luminosity. I find it has a nice pigmentation and gave my face a nice glow. It feels silky and applies smooth on the skin.

  • The left shade (Bronze) is to add warmth and definition.
  • The middle shade (rose) is to add a bit of radiant color.
  • The right shade (champagne) is to illuminate.

I find that this palette can also be multi-purpose. These shades can be applied over your lids to give it a little shimmer.

Definition Eyeliner 

This liquid eyeliner is very pigmented and it glides very easily. I find it is a bit wet. I suggest to wait a few minutes for it to dry once applied. I like the pointed felt tip that makes it easy to create that bold line.

Natural Illusion pressed eyeshadow

I received the shade Sunrise (04). It has a light shimmer that can be applied alone all over the lid or over eye shadows. It gave my lids a beautiful natural look with a hint of shimmer.

Flawless concealer & Concealer brush

I used the concealer with the concealer brush. The concealer is okay. It is very creamy and it gave a light coverage. Some of my blemishes were still showing. However, it was really easy to apply the product. It blends smoothly on the skin giving me a natural look. I love the brush because of the pointed tip and flat edge that helps apply and blend the concealer. The bristles are very soft and it feels high quality. Also, I think this brush can be used to put eye shadow, especially when you want to pact on some glitter or shimmer!

Overall, I love this natural beauty line and I highly recommend them to all beauty lovers who are interested in eco-friendly makeups. I also love the rose gold packaging. Even the outside packaging is made with sturdy materials. They look very luxurious!

The products mentioned above are just some from their line but there so many more! I really want to try out their lip sticks and lip glosses. If you are interested in trying out Nude by Nature products and live in Canada, you can find them at Shopper’s Drug Mart/Pharmaprix.

Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Red Algae Uplift review

I received a full-size (50 ml) Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Red Algae uplift for free from Topbox Circle for reviewing purposes. I have been using this firming cream for the past week and I am already loving it! Biotherm is considered as being a high-end skincare brand and I got really excited that I got chosen to review this product especially that they sent a full-size product worth $89 CAD (AHH!) !

I use this cream it in the morning and at night on my face and neck (as directed on the bottle). A small amount is all you need! This face cream is a rosy color cream and it feels very silky. It quickly absorbs into the skin leaving my really dry skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I currently do not have any wrinkles but this cream will help delay them from coming. I also love the scent! My skin will look forever young! The product is a bit pricey but it is worth every penny. I definitely recommend this product to those who have dry skin, sign of aging and to those who wants to maintain the

Babyganics Review

I received these wonderful Babyganics products from the FamilyRated review club for free for reviewing purposes. I’ve heard so much about this brand when I was doing research about baby products before Alyssa was born but I could never find any here in Montreal. I was so happy and excited to be an advocate to review these products!

What I love about Babyganics is that they are known for using all-natural ingredients. They are formulated with plant-derived ingredients therefore there are no harsh chemicals (no parabens, phthalates, articifial dyes or fragrances). I also love the packaging; the designs are so cute!

Baby wipes:
I find the value amazing – 80 wipes (normally there are about 60-70 pieces). These wipes are thick and not too wet. I like that there is 1 wipe that comes out at a time and not 2 or 3 (it can be annoying to push the wipes back into the package). I have used these wipes on my daughter for a few days and so far they work well. Up to now, there are no irritations on her skin.

Shampoo & body wash:
After using this product a few times on my daughter who is 4 and half months, I am loving it so far! It is my first time using a foamy shampoo/body wash on her. I find the foam easier to latter on her hair and body compared to the gel/cream type. I also like the very light scent (from the oils) and that it is tear free. Again, she has no irritations or skin reactions when using this.

Moisturizing daily lotion:
I have used this lotion a few times on my daughter (and myself! 😀 ) after her bath and it works great! I noticed that she had some dry patches on her legs recently (maybe due to the recent cold temperature). After a few days, the dry patches disappeared! Up to now, my daughter has no skin reactions from using this product. For myself, my hands are so dry from the cold. I like that it is formulated with shea butter and cocoa butter. The consistency of the lotion is a light and a little thick but no greasy feeling. It left my hands soft and moisturized. 

Since these products are new in Canada, I am not sure what the value of each items are but I do recommend them to parents who are looking for all-natural/plant-based products for their babies and toddlers. I am so glad to have the opportunity to test these Babyganics products and I am looking forward in finding them in my local stores. I am also interested in trying out other products from the brand.

Thank you again FamilyRated for this great opportunity. If you are interested in receiving full-size products to review, please visit their site and sign-up to become a member! 🙂

Pampers Swaddlers Review

I received the Pampers Swaddlers voxbox from Influenster for free for reviewing purposes. My family and I are already big fans of Pampers for many years! They are reliable and have a big range of diapers and wipes. I was so happy to be part of this campaign. We can never have too many diapers and wipes in this house! In this voxbox, I received a pack of Pampers: size 2 (Influenster sent a questionnaire last month asking which size is best for our baby), a full-size pack of wipes, a cute Pampers tote bag and some coupons.

Before Alyssa was born, I stocked up on a lot of Pampers diapers (a variety of sizes for different stages) and wipes. So, she has been wearing Pampers since she arrived! Even the hospital where she was born provided us with this same brand of diapers. The feature I liked the most is the yellow line. It turns blue when the diaper is wet! Feeling the diaper to see if it is full can be a challenge. I also like how the diaper is snug  on the baby’s bottom and has good coverage in the back.

Pampers has added a new feature in their diapers – the heart quilts – that absorbs pee ( and especially big poop explosions!) by keeping the baby’s skin soft. There are also Air Dry channels throughout the diaper that provides breathable dryness and up to 12 hours of protection. There have been a few times where Alyssa would sleep 6 hours straight during the night and when it was time to change her diaper it weighed so much! The diaper absorbed all the pee without any leak.

The wipes are also great!  They are made for sensitive skin. There are no fragrance and are hypoallergenic. It cleans the baby’s bottom without any irritation leaving it moisturized, fresh and clean. They can also be used to clean the face and hands. These pack of wipes are perfect for travelling. The only thing that may can be annoying is that when you pull out a wipe, there may be 2 or 3 that comes out at the same time. Then I have to stick it back in the pack.

So far, I have not seen any irritation on Alyssa’s skin from using these diapers and wipes. I definitely recommend Pampers Swaddlers especially in the early months . I will of course continue to use and buy Pampers. The coupons will come in handy in my next purchase! Thank you again Influenser for this great opportunity!

Pure Leaf: Green Tea with Mint Review

I received the Pure Leaf in Green tea with Mint for free from the Chickadvisor review club for reviewing purposes. I was so glad to be one of the advocates! I have always wanted to try Pure Leaf teas but I never had the opportunity.

I have been testing out the tea for a few days and I love it! The fragrance and taste is really refreshing. You can really taste the combination of these two flavors. I tried it hot and cold (by adding ice). Both method tastes great! I also like the clear packaging where you can see how many sachets are left and it is not too bulky. The container can even be reuse to hold other teas!

I definitely recommend this tea to all the tea lovers out there especially to those who like the combination of green tea and peppermint leaves. Also, to all the mamas out there, this can relax you after spending the whole day with the little one(s). I see myself purchasing this and trying out the other flavors! Thank you again to ChickAdvisor for sending me this!
