Beauty Empties - what I loved and what I didn't

Beauty Empties 1

I have been meaning to make an empties post for the longest time! I know it’s been a long time because I have a HUGE bag full of empties! So since I’m doing some spring cleaning right now, I thought, what better time to write this post than right now? Because what is a bag of empties? It’s essentially a bag of trash. 😉

So I don’t end up writing a novel (and believe me, there is enough in that bag to write a novel!), I thought I’d break things up into makeup, hair care and skin care. For today, let’s stick to my makeup empties. 🙂


Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer

Review: Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer – ChickAdvisor

It’s May and summer is just around the corner! I can tell because we are having amazing weather and it has been an unusually warm (and very dry!) spring here in Alberta. And summer days mean sunny days so it’s time to dig out those SPF products!

That being said, I never did put away my facial sunscreen. In the last year or so, I haven’t stopped using it. I have been using sunscreen year round on my face. It could be a beautiful sunny day out or the dead of winter and I still used SPF on my face. Trust me – even when it’s cloudy and overcast outside, the suns rays still penetrate the clouds and you still need protection. A dear friend of mine learned this the hard way years ago – she didn’t wear sunscreen because it was overcast all day but she still burned! We all took that as a lesson learned and became a bit more sun smart.

The face sunscreen I use right now has one downfall: it is just a sunscreen. It’s not a moisturizer so because of that, I always have to apply a moisturizer before I apply the sunscreen. It’s totally worth doing everyday but if I could skip one step and find a two-in-one product that’s a moisturizer and a sunscreen, I wouldn’t say no! 😉

Enter the new Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer!

April Favorites 2016

Greetings folks!

It’s the first day of May – can you believe it? I sure can’t! April flew by so fast.

I’m back to do something I haven’t done in forever – a monthly favorites post!

I love watching monthly favorites on YouTube and I love reading about everyone’s monthly favorites on their blogs. I thought I would join in on the fun again. 🙂 Every month I am going to pick an assortment of things that I loved that month! These are what I really loved in April. 🙂

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Seduction and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk

Hope you are having a great week! I am kicking off my weekend early so I think that’s pretty great. It’s a busy weekend ahead so it’s nice to have that one extra day to get some housework and errands done so for that I am thankful. 🙂

But tonight, I’m taking it easy and doing a little bit of blogging. So here goes – I’m here to do a Charlotte Tibury review. Honestly, this may as well be a “YouTube Made Me Buy It!” type post because that’s where I first learned about these.
