Having been introduced to the Palmer’s brand recently, I have no complaints so far given their quality and price. One of the problem is that you can purchase them at Walmart and the closest Walmart is 30-45 minute drive away (and one time I crossed another bridge by accident and ended up in Delta (another city for those non-Vancouver based readers) and let’s just say that feeling of panic is something I DON’T want to feel again.) So I’m super grateful to try more from Palmer’s; this time their Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil and the Skin Therapy Oil for face is definitely a great duo. (And there’s a giveaway, yay!)
I’ve mentioned THEFACESHOP here and there before; but I want to say I go way back with this brand. When I was still in high school, I used to linger at old THEFACESHOP retail store in Richmond Centre and indulge on their masks and nail polishes. THEFACESHOP was my gateway to the beauty world. Not to mention, half the reason why I mope around there was because of a cute guy working there (and we are friends now actually and I hope he doesn’t happen to click on this post!) When THEFACESHOP closed I was sad to lose an option to get K-beauty but glad to see the new store thriving again in Richmond Centre.
My first experience with beauty products in general wasn’t makeup or toners and moisturizers; it was basic things like hand creams. I’ve considered THEFACESHOP as a stop to get basic beauty care needs and I have three things to share: their Daily Perfumed Hand Cream, Konjac Cleansing Puff, and MasCream Sheet.
Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA!! I’ve been feeling under the weather, plus had a small kerfuffle with Expedia for TD regarding my flight to San Diego for Comic Con… and let’s just say I won’t be purchasing flight tickets from them anytime soon.
Needless to say.. stress and lack of sleep have caused my skin to be the crappiest of crap and after coming home I barely want to brush my teeth, let alone wash my face! Seriously…sometimes I end up falling asleep on my bed and haven’t washed my face nor brushed my teeth and end up doing that at 2am. I am always looking for quick ways to cleanse my skin, from makeup wipes to cleansing-toners! And of course, can’t forget about handy dandy micellar water. It all started with Bioderma and now drugstore brands have been producing micellar water solutions too. The latest one I received to try is Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water.
Writing about skincare products is not easy for me; I usually have to take notes after observing my face and feels after using products with no visible evidence to show. However, this time it’s a bit different! Recently, GM Collin reached out to me on trying a few of their skincare products; I haven’t heard of them and shame on me, as they are a Montreal based skincare company. Their products, which are derived from natural plant and marine extracts, target various skin types and conditions- I received a few products for combination skin and dry lips.
Growing up with headaches and indigestion, I really relied on essential oils and herb-y smelling things to relieve my discomfort. I was contacted by Here&Now Botanicals, an aromatherapy line based in my hometown, Vancouver! I was 100% on board; usually products made from essential oils could be quite pricey in malls and I’m always curious to try new brands to squash the pain out of my system.
