4 Tips to Buy Less During the Holidays

4 Tips to Buy Less During the Holidays

In this day and age, we are constantly bombarded with advertisements whose sole purpose is to get us to believe that we need more material possessions. These ads are misleading but highly effective. They are leading us to consume at a rate that is both unreasonable and alarming. This is especially true during the holiday season. Despite the social pressure to have ‘more‘, it is possible to become a conscientious consumer. In this post, […]

100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask [Review]

100% Pure

This week’s post is going to be short and sweet! I just want to briefly share my thoughts on the 100% Pure Bright Eyes Mask. If you haven’t heard of this company before, 100% Pure produces non-toxic, organic and biodegradable beauty products. There are so many things about 100% Pure that I appreciate! For example, they use post-consumer recycled (and recyclable) packaging, they do not use any fillers to dilute their formulas and they […]

Is Canada Going Cruelty-Free?

Canada's Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act

I would wager that most of the makeup in your cosmetics bag right now has been tested on animals. Up until one year ago, that would also have been true for my makeup bag. (See my first cruelty-free declutter here!) We may not like to think about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that your cosmetics ARE being tested on animals. And on top of that, many of your cosmetics are being tested on […]

Acure Fragrance-Free Body Wash & Body Lotion [Review]

Acure Body Wash and Lotion

Let’s talk body care. My skin is extremely sensitive so I have to be very careful with my choice of body care products. In particular, I suffer from extremely dry and itchy skin and I often have painful dermatographic urticaria. Therefore, I usually look for products that are fragrance-free, hydrating and geared towards sensitive skin. I have been using these two Acure Organics products everyday for several weeks now and I wanted to share my thoughts with you. […]

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks [Review]

OFRA Liquid Lipsticks

I know for a fact that my Mom will be thrilled that I’m writing this post. Ever since I started getting into makeup in my late teens, my Mom would harass me to “put some colour on your lips!”. My Mom is a typical French Canadian woman who does not leave the house without her red lipstick on. And I love that about her! But it just wasn’t me. I would do my eye makeup but I […]

Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive Super Gentle Face Wash [Review]

Pacifica Quinoa Super Gentle Face Wash

In this post, I review the Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive Super Gentle Face Wash. Pacifica is a beauty company based in the United States. They pretty much have all the beauty-related products you could need including skincare, makeup, haircare, body products and perfume. But what’s even better is that they are completely cruelty-free and 100% vegan!   Why do I love this face wash? I have combination skin – the bridge of my nose can get fairly oily but […]

Does e.l.f. Offer International Shipping?

e.l.f. international shipping

Since many beauty bloggers and youtubers are based in the United States, many of them seem to assume that the brands they mention are easily accessible to their readers and viewers. As a result, bloggers and youtubers will often (unknowingly) recommend products from brands that do not offer international shipping. – My goal is to make this blog as accessible as possible, for as many people as possible, regardless of where you are located in the world –  […]
