Product review: Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Comfort Vanilla and Patchouli Moisturizing Body Cream

Finding a body cream you assume to be great, only to learn it isn’t, is frustrating. Perhaps it’s too oily and leaves a film on your skin after using it; maybe it isn’t the scent you bargained for; perhaps it’s promise to provide your skin with infinite moisture fell short. When you spend money on … More Product review: Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Comfort Vanilla and Patchouli Moisturizing Body Cream

Move over, Somersby; Folkin’ Hard Cider has you beat

Ciders and summertime pair perfectly. There’s something so refreshing about cracking open a crisp, cool apple cider on a hot summer day, and I imagine a lot of folks would agree with me. If hard cider is your go-to drink when the weather warms up, I have some fantastic news for you: Bonnieheath Estate Lavender … More Move over, Somersby; Folkin’ Hard Cider has you beat

Looking for a unique twist on granola? Check out Bakery on Main

Most of us have tried granola at some point on our lives. My question, though, is whether or not the granola we’ve tried is actually tasty. I’ve had several variations of granola, however, I’ve struggled finding one that really gets me going. They’re all pretty similar, typically consisting of nuts, raisins, and granola itself. Then … More Looking for a unique twist on granola? Check out Bakery on Main

Here’s why you need to try Cottage Springs’ vodka sodas

Sugary alcoholic drinks have never been my thing. I find them to be excessively sweet (almost like you can feel cavities forming as you sip on them), and honestly, wine and beer have always been my preference. That is, wine and beer were my preference until I discovered Cottage Springs vodka sodas. Now my top … More Here’s why you need to try Cottage Springs’ vodka sodas

Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

Summertime, for me, is peak tan season. By tan, I’m referring to the tan I receive when I’m outside working on the farm. Not from a tanning bed or anything like that. Since beginning my job at Bonnieheath, I’m spending far more time indoors than I normally do in the warmer weather. And, as a … More Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

Slather on that SPF

Considering the current weather fluctuations happening in the province of Ontario, it might be difficult to consider the fact that warmer weather and sunnier days are on their way. But, they’re a comin’, and it’s wise to make a mental note that sun and heat aren’t necessarily the best elements for the skin. I thought … More Slather on that SPF

Here’s why you should be using hemp oil on your skin

For many of us, our skin likely isn’t looking the way we would like it to. Especially if you’re residing in a colder climate, because chances are by this point in the year, your skin is starting to closely resemble that of a snake’s. Not to fret about your reptilian state, though. Thanks to an … More Here’s why you should be using hemp oil on your skin

Product review: VicTsing’s Mini Essential Oil Diffuser

I’ve had my fair share of bad luck with diffusers. I’ve gone through two in the past year, one of which seriously ruined the top piece of my Maple dresser on my room because it had a fit and somewhat exploded all over the wood. So, I’ve been looking for a durable, decently priced one, … More Product review: VicTsing’s Mini Essential Oil Diffuser

Product review: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

If I’m being honest, I’ll admit that one of the greatest perks of being an online Sephora customer is the free samples and the sample sizes of products you can add to your order with your Beauty Insider points. Granted, the sample sizes are pitiful, but hey, you get to try out fancy schmancy items … More Product review: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

Product review: Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay Skin Care Powder

I would bet money that a majority of women my age have heard of or have seen ads for the Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay Skin Care Powder. This stuff has been around for a while now, and from what I have seen, most of the people who use it swear by its cleansing … More Product review: Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay Skin Care Powder

Product review: Earthly Delights’ vanilla sugar scrub

I apologize for the surplus in product reviews as of late, however, after receiving some products for Christmas, and others shortly before Christmas time, I figure I may as well offer my opinion of them in case someone else is contemplating giving them a try. My sister, who coincidentally happens to be the owner of … More Product review: Earthly Delights’ vanilla sugar scrub

Product review: Bath & Body Works Magic in the Air Foaming Sugar Scrub

If there’s one thing I love about Christmas gifts, it’s the bath products I receive and the fun I have in experimenting with them. Some may say if bath products excite me, I should get out more. Perhaps this observation has validity and I do, in fact, live a relatively unexciting life, but it really … More Product review: Bath & Body Works Magic in the Air Foaming Sugar Scrub

Product review: L’oreal Paris Total Repair hair mask

Winter can prove to be pretty ruthless when it comes to hair health. Cold temperatures and hair just don’t really blend, and so, hair tends to get a little crispy around January. It does for me, living in Canada, anyways. So, I tend to use hair masks a little more often during the winter than … More Product review: L’oreal Paris Total Repair hair mask

Product review: Newton’s no gluten sugar cookie mix

Good news, though; Newton’s no gluten sugar cookie mix has your back for all allergen-free baking this Christmas season. For all seasons, really. Not just Christmas. … More Product review: Newton’s no gluten sugar cookie mix

Product review: Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover

Throughout my teen years, I bit my nails like a complete savage. That isn’t an exaggeration, either; my nails were constantly bloody and sore, and my fingers resembled butchered hot dogs. Miraculously, I was able to stop biting my nails, and I haven’t bit them in years. I am now, however, what I like to … More Product review: Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover

Product review: bareMinerals Stroke of Light Under Eye Concealer

I’ve been pretty committed to my Tarte Shape Tape concealer, however, since my supply is running quite low, I needed to broaden my concealer options according to what I had on-hand. Enter my mom’s makeup stash. Yes, desperate times call for desperate measures. I noticed that she had the bareMinerals Stroke of Light Under Eye … More Product review: bareMinerals Stroke of Light Under Eye Concealer
