  • pHisoderm gentle facial cleanser ($6.00)
  • Ardell accentuate your eyes 6 piece set ($13.00)
  • Elle insulated lunch bag in brown ($9.99)
I've been looking for a cleanser lately because mine was running out and when I came across this at Winners I knew I found it! I've used this pHisoderm gentle facial cleanser before and it was very gentle on my face.

The Turbo Jam Kit comes with 5 workouts, a results guidebook & turbo slim 10-day kick start:
  1. Learn & Burn
  2. 20 Minute Workout
  3. Turbo Sculpt

I've first heard of these DVD on the TV. It must of been about a year ago and they were selling them for over $100!!! I'm soooo happy I found it at Winners for $14.99. They also had the Core Rhymes, but I choose the Turbo Jam! Will tell you more about it when I start using it!

The Elle lunch bag looks small but it can fit a lot stuff inside!! Retail price is $25.00!! As for the false lashes... well I needed a lash glue and I saw they were selling them for about $10 and this kit comes with it plus other things only for $3 more. So I got this instead!! Need an occasion to try out these lashes!

The kit comes with:
  • Lashes (Fashion Lashes, Elegant Lashes and Accent Lashes)
  • LashGrip Waterproof eyelash adhesive

  • Pro Lash Applicator
Here's a close up of the lashes it comes with...

Haul: Elf 60% off sale

Hi Ladies,
I got my package from ELF a few days ago. I got everything at 60% off!! YAY ^^

Here's a list of the products I got:
  • 4 Piece Bamboo Brush Set
  • Dual Pencil Sharpener
  • Eye Shadow Brush
  • Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15 in Mellow Melon, Nice & Natural and Peaceful Pink
  • Shine Eraser
I got this travel size makeup brush because it was very very similar to the EcoTool one. The brush is very soft and I'm sooo happy I got this set instead of the EcoTool one!

Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15 in Nice & Natural, Peaceful Pink and Mellow Melon. They are all very moisturizing and I love the fact they contain SPF15. The only thing I don't like about it is packaging. Very bulky and not easy to get the product out. This is why I got the lip brush from Quo.

 And since I like so much their eyeshadow brushes, I got 2 more!

Summer is making my face quite oily, so I got the Shine Eraser to help with the oiliness on my face. As for the Dual Pencil Sharpener, the one I have is starting to get old. Therefore I got a new one to replace it!

Did anyone get anything from the sale?
Till next time...~

Last Luxe Box by Loose Button

Hi Ladies,
I'm here to share with you the July edition of the Luxe Box.
Here's the list of the 4 products I got:
  • Essie - Nail Polish (In Stitches)
  • Stella - Stella in Two Peony Fragrance
  • Consonant - Eye & Face Creams
  • Trucco - Eye Liner (Divinity)

Essie - Nail Polish: Today Essie Nail Polish has grown to be one of the industry's most popular professional polish brands. Due to Essie's long-lasting formula, Essie Nail Polish has been worn by many celebrities including Princess Kate Middleton on her wedding day.
Small remark: The color I got is a cherry red. I don't have any color like this, so I like it!

Stella - Stella in Two Peony Fragrance: Light and sparkling Pink Peony spiced up with black pepper comprise the top notes, while the base notes of amber,cedar wood and patchouli leave a warm and decidedly sensual drydown. A great spring/summer choice to add to your fragrance collection.
Small remark: The smell of this perfume is really not my taste. I find that giving perfume to others is very hard because we all have sooo different taste.

Consonant - Eye & Face Creams: Consonant 60 Sec Skincare regime - 100% natural face cream and eye creams formulated to give you the healthiest, most radiant skin. Follow the instructions on the card for the best results.
Small remark: Still haven't tried yet.

Trucco - Eye Liner: Pro Eye Pencil can be used to sculpt, color, outline, and reshape the eyes. This pencil provides a smooth, comfortable application, and is mineral-oil free.
Small remark: I don't like the color I got and the product has a very woody smell which I don't like! It has a very cheap smell to it.

So here are my initial thought about this month Luxe Box. I'm really not impressed with this month's Luxe Box!

Have you received yours yet? And what do you think of the products this month?

Good bargains: Winners and Pharmaprix

Hey Ladies,
Recently I went to Winners and found some interesting buys. I found full size Essie nail polishes for $6.99 and their minis 4 for $12.99. I only got the minis because the colors they had in full size I already have. And I got really cute pink socks for jogging...

At Pharmaprix, there was 40% off their Quo makeup brushes, so I took this opportunity to get myself a retractable lip brush. The design is very small, perfect to put in your makeup bag. The reason why I got this is because I got a few lip conditioners on ELF website. I don't like to dip my fingers in the product so I got this to be more hygienic!

What are your recent purchases?
Till next time...~

Second Luxe Box by Loose Button

Hi Ladies,
due to the strike of Canada Post, my package was delayed for about 2 weeks. Canada Post were back to work Tuesday July 28, and I got my package the day after! ^^

Here are the 4 products I received:

  • Consonant Skincare - Face Wash (50ml)
  • Joico - Colour Therapy Restorative Styling Oil (21.5ml)
  • Laura Mercier - Eye Color (Full Sized)
  • Dermalogica - Shaving Cream & Daily Clean Scrub (7ml each)

Consonant Skincare - Face Wash: A cult favourite and Consonant Skincare's bestseller. Gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, yet effectively removes makeup and dirt. Niacinamide helps control blemishes and mild breakouts, making this a great product for any skin type.
Small remark: Love the fact it's all natural ingredients and it does not dry the skin after cleansing,

Joico - Colour Therapy Restorative Styling Oil: A hydrating oil that brings life back to dull, lifeless hair. Made from a blend of Manketti, Argan and Evening Primrose oils that seal and nourish that cuticle to lock in color. Also great for treating frizz and reducing drying an styling time.
Small remark: Don't color my hair... so haven't got the chance to try it yet.

Laura Mercier - Eye Color (Sandstone): A non-dusting eye color that is easily layered and sheered. Experience the freedom of a long-wearing crease-resistant product that glides on evenly every time. Micronized pigments deliver deep colour release in one stroke.

Small remark: Very pretty light peachy color! Perfect for the summer.

Dermalogica - Shaving Cream & Daily Clean Scrub: An ultra-lubricating cream that delivers a super close shave that won't leave skin feeling sore and a dual-action exfoliating cleanser that removes dulling surface debris, helping to lift the beard for a closer, cleaner shave,
Small remark: Just gave it to my bf today, but don't really understand why they put some man products in it!!
