Mascara is a staple in my makeup routine and I am always open to trying new ones that come out at the drugstore. Thank you Influenster Canada and Revlon Canada for a mascara that gave my lashes so much volume with such high-quality packaging. I experienced no smudging, flaking, or clumping while using this mascara either! I recieved this product for free from Influenster Canada and Revlon Canada. Revlon Mega Multiplier™ Mascara
This Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Size Eye Shadow Palette is the one to purchase if you don’t want to break the bank. It’s an amazing gift for anyone who doesn’t indulge in purchasing large eye shadow palettes or is a frequent traveller. Smashbox’s Full Exposure Travel Size Eye Shadow Palette comes with eight brown-tone shades, 4 shimmery and 4 matte, that suit everyone’s lifestyle and skin tone. In addition, they are extremely pigmented and made out of high-quality materials. This eye shadow palette is also convenient and compact. I like using it when I’m travelling or performing and need to do touch-ups later in the day.
Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster smells like a field of clementine trees and I often refer to it as liquid gold. The serum’s orange extract, green tea extract, and vitamin C complex brighten, smooth, and help the appearance of aging. I first heard of the Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster from a Lauren Elizabeth YouTube video where she revealed what products she uses to help her reduce the look of acne scarring. I, like many people suffer from acne scarring aka hyperpigmentation and are constantly looking for solutions to clear our skin. Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster helps with hyperpigmentation because the vitamin C complex brightens the skin and helps fade the acne scars in a safe manner. This product is a lot less harsh than drugstore products or applying lemon juice on the scars. This serum is for all skin types and to achieve the best results apply a dime size amount in the morning on your face and neck. I recommend Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster to anyone who is willing to invest in a serum that will dramatically help your hyperpigmentation and will make your skin feel super refreshed in the morning.
A #backyardbash essential that soothes and protects your skin during all seasons! This dry-touch sunscreen is versatile and can be used as a foundation primer too. I adore this product and recommend to people of all ages. Sun safety is always a trend!
Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Stick is my favorite #beachbag essential during the summer time! I adore the moisturizing feeling of the lip balm and how it has SPF 15. The SPF 15 is the moist important part because it keeps your lips from getting burnt under the summer sun!
After one week of using the product friends and family began to notice how long and thick my hair was. The scent of the products was pleasant and smelled like salon. The product was reasonably priced compared to other shampoos on the market. Lathered and conditioned lovely. The packaging was flashy and suited to the theme of a scientific discovery. My hair feels dramatically voluminous and I am hesitant on purchasing another shampoo. Please admit that Blake Lively is a goddess?!?
Funny Story: My friend said the conditioner looked like mayo... Every time I use it I think of the famous sandwich condiment. This product unfortunately can't work for everyone. However, like all most products I do recommend trying it! Thank you for the opportunity Influenster!
Pros of Fibraology Booster - The product was reasonably priced for a hair serum. - The product didn't have a distinct smell and didn't bother my scalp. - The product did dramatically thicken my hair! - The product came in a beautiful packaged box.
Cons of Fibraology Booster - I was unsure if the booster was creating the volume in my hair or the combination of the products. - I felt that the recommend amount of product didn't fit the length of my hair. - I also felt unsure where to place the booster when used. - Not to mention, I forgot to put the conditioner in after applying the serum sometimes. Opps!
I purchased this through my local university drugstore and was completely surprised to how effective it was! I love the berry taste (it reminds me of ice breakers) and is super moisturizing! Maybe more than the EOS brand!
