Foot Mask

Grace & Stella- Dr. Pedicure Foot Exfoliating Mask Review

12:03 AM






 -17 types of natural vegetable extracts help relieve fatigue and give energy to your feet
   -Skin smoothing and moisturizing ingredients to get rid of coarse, dull and dead skin
   -Smooth, soft and clean looking feet after just one use 

    Try it to believe it!

Grace & Stella’s Dr. Pedicure Foot Peel Mask is an innovative foot care product that will unbelievably shed the old, dead, callused skin right off your feet. Tired of having rough, dull feet? Reveal your feet’s youth with Dr. Pedicure!”

Okay feet may not be the nicest thing to discuss while getting them in tip top shape, but we have them and need them to be looking pretty especially if we have a beachy holiday coming up or anytime we need to be wearing shoes that show are feet. I am super excited to try this product out!
This is unique and new to me, so I will do this review slightly different. Since it can take up to 7-14 days depending on the person, I will do a quick day by day post in this review to let you guys know how things are going and what to expect.
I don’t horrible feet but I do wear my steel toes daily so they aren’t exactly friendly on my feet, I am excited to see the results! This sounds like a great product for a fair price. Only $17.95.
Okay so as usual I start with the packaging as I am a sucker for nice packaging! Way to judge a book by it’s cover-bad I know! This is nice and simple with the clean look and nice colors, A+ for me!
After giving your feet a good cleanse, I did a little spa day with this, nice hot bath, face mask, hair mask and then new to me a foot exfoliating mask :) 



Here is what’s inside, sorry not the most pretty photos but I was excited to give it a try. 
Inside is two plastic boots with their magic formula, and some tape to do up the boots.

 Okay there is my grossness!!! 


I found them quite big! I do have small feet, I ended up adding some extra tape to make sure it was secure, then added on my socks.


The process is an hour, then you wash your feet off and you are set for it to all work for the week or so.

It felt weird walking around with plastic booties under my socks LOL but I ended up just catching up on some blogs and browsing around Grace & Stella’s site, the time flew by as always. 
I find this super cool about Grace & Stella, since they are a newer company to me I was pleased to learn this:


"Our products are 100% cruelty-free and made with highest ethical standards.

All packaging is made with BPA-free materials.
All packaging is made with recycled materials where available.

Day 1: The only thing I noticed was that my nail polish on my toes had gotten a little messed up while doing the treatment-my bad, make sure to not have somewhat new nail polish on.

Day 2: Nothing crazy is going on but again I don’t have much for rough skin 

Day 3: I am starting to feel my heels being a little bit smoother! I usually use a pumice stone but obviously not while I am testing out Dr Pedicure.

Day 4: Feeling even a little bit more soft and smooth- that’s great since wearing steel toes aren’t very nice to your feet day after day.

Day 5: Nothing much for difference is going on but I am not complaining with the results so far!

Day 6: I think maybe the process is finished for me? 

Day 7: Still soft and smooth feet :)

Okay this was a very interesting process I thought! I was glad I was able to test it out, I did try to take before and after photos but I really don’t have noticeable rough feet but please check this photo out on their site
I didn’t have any flaking skin that I noticed, possibly some that I hadn’t noticed since my skin was softer once this week went by.


PROS: 
-Easy to use
-Convenient  
-Inexpensive
-Great Results

CONS:
-Possibly not ideal if you don’t have crazy rough feet

Over all I think this was really cool to try, it was a different process than anything I have ever tried and it still does work even if your feet aren’t in crazy need of extra love. 
I would for sure recommend this product- I may even know someone I could purchase for a stay at home spa gift since she isn’t very up for getting pedicures.

Have you tried anything like this before?
Would you possibly buy this kind of product as a gift?

Be sure to check out some of Grace& Stella’s other products here. I am thinking I need to give their Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub a try sometime, I bet it smells amazing!!!!

For the love of Social Media, I heart them all:

Zoella Blissful Mistful & Sticker Me Beauty Bag Review

5:28 AM



Zoella Beauty is a new to me company, fun, young, creative and just drew me in.Something about it is just fun.
A little bit about the creator of the company Zoella:

"Meet Zoe. Zoe is 26 and started her blog and YouTube channel back in 2009 to share her love of all things beauty and fashion with the online world. She’s since gone on to become a digital megastar with 11.7 million Youtube subscribers. 
Following on from her incredible online career,  Zoe has turned her love of all things beauty into a fun and dreamy bath range to take us back to a time where a bath was an indulgent experience rather than a chore,  taking users to a paradise of relaxation and serenity. The result was a fun, playful range of bath goodies that is the embodiment of Zoe, cute on the outside and packed full of loveliness on the inside. "

"This affordable collection gives people a chance to indulge in some me-time, collect their thoughts, drift away and completely submerse themselves into a stress free environment. Featuring a specially created fragrance with notes of grapefruit, jasmine and musk, this collection will let you drift away in perfumed paradise whilst providing amazing benefits for your body and skin. Packed full of active ingredients like Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Aloe extracts, this range is set to be a staple in your bathroom as Zoella is to the YouTube generation!”
Wow I NEED her life!
Now tell me that doesn’t peak your interest?


Let’s check out a couple things I was lucky to review :)


"Zoella Beauty Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist (45ml)
Surround yourself with serene scent and let relaxation begin. Spray this super light and feminine spritz to scent your body with fresh and floral notes. Enriched with Vitamin E and fruit extracts - bliss in a bottle.”
First things first, packaging! Lets be real this is what grabs our attention. This cute polkadot yet simple and creative bottle immediately attracted me. The design is elegant and fresh, even the font is something I would see myself designing. I absolutely love it! 

My Favourite body mists/perfumes are always fruity and floral scents, I kinda think Zoe made this one for me ;) I will probably keep this one in my bag with me so I can use it though out the day, it is a nice light scent so you won’t have to worry about walking past people as they plug your nose wondering if you have bathed in a bottle of perfume, yet simple enough to get complimented-even my boyfriend noticed and that’s a rare occasion LOL.


I give Zoe a huge props for this, well really for her products and hard work, you can tell she put a lot into it and for the affordability it makes it that much sweeter!

Definitely give this a smell!!

Also available at the following retailers:
Select Brunet
Select Familiprix
Select Guardian

Select Pharmasave

Zoella Sticker Me Beauty Bag

Ahhh now you cannot tell me this isn’t a fun makeup bag! I think it’s a really cute idea you can sticker it yourself :) I don’t know how long lasting the stickers are but I think it is fun to have a little control over the design part of a beauty bag in your life. Nice to change things up sometimes!

Can you guess what I did? Ha


Cute navy blue with the lovely Zoella Beauty in the corner in pink-my fav.


#Beauty of course



A cute little flower on top



Last but not least, my favorite-the camera and my sideways heart! I think I was born with a camera in my hands-still don’t really know how to use it LOL but it’s always fun, as well as a sideways heart :)


It’s quite a spacious but compact bag if that makes sense, I can’t wait to use for my next trip!
Hopefully sooner then later.

Have you guys checked any of these out or own any? If so what is on your dream list or on your bathroom counters?



There is tons of information at Farleyco.ca on Zoella Beauty products as well please feel free to check out the following social media sites- they get addicting but in a good way! :)

Random Empties

3:15 PM



* GARNIER MOISTURE RESCUE - REFRESHING GEL CREAM
* CHI - KERATIN MIST
* COLAB - SHEER INVISIBLE DRY SHAMPOO
*COLAB - VOLUME EXTREME DRY SHAMPOO

Would I or would’t I?

Have any of you guys tried these products before?

I don’t have much to say about Garniers Moisture Rescue other then it was an interesting light formula, I didn’t find it gave me enough moisture but it didn’t make my skin feel greasy which is what I wanted. Worth the $$ Honestly, no.

CHI KERATIN MIST, I heart CHI products, I love the smell of them even if they smell more manly- at least it smells like I hang around guys or something ;) but in all seriousness I would absolutely repeat purchase this again and again as I find it helps my poor bleached hair.

Moving on to MY FAVOURITES! 

COLAB - SHEER INVISIBLE DRY SHAMPOO
COLAB - VOLUME EXTREME DRY SHAMPOO- Anyone who has ever read my blog or used this AMAZING product would probably agree with me, works like a dream, smells great and I have repurchased so many times I think I should partner with COLAB ;)  GIVE IT A TRY!!! :) 

If you have tried any of these products, what were your thoughts?

Annabelle BigShow Lip Lacquer Review

12:02 AM


MAIL!!!!

I was extra stoked to receive this in the mail from Annabelle Cosmetics. I truly do love their products not only because they are Canadian & do not test on animals but the quality is fantastic! I find myself reaching for them anytime I am out shopping for something new and probably unneeded LOL but we all do that!

Not going to lie I carefully tore this box open super excited to get in here! To my surprise there was 6 BigShow Lip Lacquers!!! FUN!



Can we just take a moment to look at this beautifulness
I am a lipglossaholic and don’t do the lipstick thing but this was so PERFECT! Colour and gloss!!
I was very stoked to try these out as the colours are exactly what I would purchase as well as I used never had a lip lacquer before so I was very cat like curious to see how this product worked!
I instantly fell in love with it, goes on smooth with nice pigmented colour with a delicious smell.
I find this a long wearing colour as far as I know, but I also like to reapply my lip products throughout the day.


Sorry not the best swatches!

-Adore Simply
-Love Fiercely
-Hypnotize Deeply
-Caress Tenderly
-Kiss Sweetly
-Enchant Romantically

GORGEOUS colours!! I heart my pinks so these were very pretty . I was trying to decide what my favourite one is and I think for regular use I would use Adore Simply more but my Favourite would have to be Kiss Sweetly! Light shimmer lasting high impact pigments, no stickiness and smells so GOOD!!! Fruity scents, my Favourite!!


I have been playing with these for the last week and a hafish, and a little goes a long way, I can’t get enough.
Absolutely love the packaging of this product, the scent is so nice, the lasting power is perfect and the colours are just as fun as they are conventional!

Would I recommend? You bet!!!! Would I purchase? HECK YES!

I can honestly say there are no cons. If you aren’t a fan of some shimmer then a couple may not be the colour for you but there are enough to choose from you will find your match! Or I just dare you to test out the shimmer, you might be surprised if you layer it with more of just a plain gloss.

Which colour would you like to try??

Batiste Empties

12:01 AM





I have been using Batiste for a few years now, I was a hard core lover of their product but always disliked the white cast it would leave in my dark hair. I realized using it before bed made the white cast not even there in the am. Since I am blonde/pink/purple now I think I have found my colors! I FRIGGING LOVEEEEEEE this and cannot get enough! I go through bottles of this and love the fact I only have to wash my hair a couple times a week.

Seriously addicted, if you haven’t tried this yet, you have too!!! The smell is incredible as well as the XXL Volume works wonders!

Which one is your favorite?

This was interesting to read about as I have never been a blonde or had to do this kind of maintenance on my hair to keep brassiness at bay. So I needed to bug someone to hep me out with this….

FINALLY I get to hear feed back on this product! I have seen it floating around online, on Twitter and other blogs I had read but I don’t have blonde hair and shockingly my friends are brunettes or dye their hair black so this took a little effort to get done!
My little sister lives in another province but she has blonde and pink hair so I did see her this summer and asked her to do a review on this for me.
It took a little longer since it was summer, and a lot of things have been going on but here it is! I did it a little differently this time, more like me asking her questions, let me know what you guys think of how this is written!

1-Did you like the packaging? Yes, I did find it appealing, and it stood out more then just a white typical bottle

2- How did you find the smell? Did you like it? I didn’t love the smell but it wasn’t offence by any means. I never find the shampoo smell stays in my hair either way so it wasn’t anything I would really notice

3-How well did this work for removing any brassy tones from your hair, Did you notice a big difference? I did! My hair was quite brassy looking before I used Pro:Voke but after using it 2-3 times I found it made  the blonde a lot cooler in the tones and that is what I was looking for.

4- How many uses did you get from the bottle? Approximately 8 ( I have super super thick hair)

5-Would you purchase Pro:Voke touch of silver brightening shampoo? Absolutely! It is hard to find a good quality purple shampoo that actually works.

6-Did the Shampoo effect any fading with the pink that is in your hair? No it did absolutely nothing to my pink. My pink is permanent but it did not fade the colour in any way.

7-Did you notice any change in the texture of your hair? No I didn’t find any change either way.

8-Would you recommend Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo? I would 100% recommend to anyone who is looking for less brassy looking blonde. I would even like to compare this to Joico’s purple shampoo.


Since I don’t have blonde hair,currently pink but after hearing her answers I would most likely purchase this if I ever go blonde. 

I have tried to get a photo but as I am no where near her I haven’t had any luck yet :(

Def give this a try ladies!
