Haircare

COLAB Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo in ‘Tokyo’

Pros: Smells amazing, absorbs any excess oil, no white residue, gives my hair really good volume

Repurchase? Yes! This is my favourite line of dry shampoo.

Pros: Free of any harsh ingredients (like SLS), smells great, hair felt less frizzy and smoother, 98% plant derived, affordable, cruelty-free, vegan

Cons: Nothing!

Repurchase? Yes.

Skincare

Bath & Body

Live Clean Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Body Wash

Pros: Replenishes the skin and improves texture and tone, lathers up really well, you get a lot of product for the price, free of any harsh ingredients, 98% plant derived, affordable, cruelty-free, vegan

Cons: Can’t think of anything

Repurchase? Yes.

Eos Cucumber Hand Lotion

Pros: Smells great, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, absorbs quickly, non-greasy, 90% natural, paraben-free

Cons: It’s a very light hand cream and did not offer 24 hour moisture like it claimed

Repurchase? Maybe as just a lighter hand cream in the summertime.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter

Pros: Smells amazing, scent lingers on skin, buttery soft texture, non-greasy, offers plenty of moisture, enriched with Community Fair Trade Wild Argan Oil from Morocco

Repurchase? Yes, this is one of my favourite scents from The Body Shop.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body Lotion

Pros: Evens out skin tone, paraben-free, cruelty-free, inexpensive, smells like hot chocolate, dry skin is nonexistent for me with this product, skin feels incredibly soft

Cons: Price keeps going up on this and a lot of times it is not in stock

Repurchase? Yes. This is my holy grail body lotion.

Makeup

Sonia Kashuk Liquid Light Concealer

Pros: Easy to apply, blends well, long lasting, brightens the under eye, cruelty-free

Cons: Only comes in two shades, can only get it at Target

Repurchase? Yes, if I could purchase this in Canada!

The Body Shop Lightening Touch

Pros: Helped brighten the under eye and counteract dark shadows, ‘Shade 1’ worked perfectly with my skin tone

Cons: I felt like the formula was too watery and that you didn’t get a lot of product in this, sometimes irritated the skin around my eyes

Repurchase? No.

Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil in ‘Tantalizing Taupe’

Pros: Easy to use, the fine nib gives plenty of control and precision, gives me fuller brows, looks natural, lasts all day, colour is perfect for my brows

Cons: Can only get this online

Repurchase? Definitely!

Sephora Outrageous Volume – Dramatic Volume Mascara

Pros: Gave me incredibly full, false looking lashes, more affordable compared to other high-end mascaras, did not flake on me, easy to remove

Cons: Does not perform well once it starts to dry out, will bleed if wet and can clump, not ideal for everyday wear

Repurchase? I personally would, but I will probably try the waterproof formula next time.
