Fall is here but I guess in Alberta, we skipped fall and went straight to winter. Not good. We got hit with a few cm of snow in early September and we had fallen and broken trees in Calgary. So heartbreaking to see that even the trees aren’t ready for that heavy of a snow fall this early.
Anyway, on to my glam bag – winter really makes me sad 🙁 My glam bag has:
NOURISH ORGANIC FOOD FOR HEALTHY SKIN – Moisturizing cream and face cleanser in cucumber + watercress.
The packaging is nice, a glossy tube with a twist cap. I like tube packaging. Very practical to use and squeeze out even the last drop of a product. On the packaging it says that it is fragrance-free, gently washes away impurities without drying or irritating and it is for all skin types.
It is also 100% natural and is USDA-certified organic. It has Aloe Vera which cleanses skin without drying, irritating or causing redness. Has Cucumber which hydrates, soothes and replenishes skin. It also has Watercress that is rich in antioxidants to protect skin from stress and fatigue. This product is chemical free + cruelty free + concern free.
Now, this is the first time I have heard and used this product. It is very gentle on my skin and I love how it feels after use. This product retails for US$13.99 for a 6fl oz tube so this mini sample is about US$ 2.33. You can purchase this at NourishOrganic.com.
MITCHELL and PEACH ENGLISH GROWERS FLORA No. 1 – Hand Cream
This hand cream is blended with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and English Honey. On the packaging it says that “This nourishing hand cream is fragranced with essential oils from the Mitchell Estate.”
The packaging is so luxurious. I don’t know what’s with this tube but the feel is really nice, it has a matte packaging and the product itself is smooth and silky and not greasy. It has a subtle scent that I really couldn’t describe but it is not strong at all. Like I said, a very subtle smell that is very light and sometimes even unnoticeable.
This is the first time I have tried something from this brand and it retails for £17 for a full sized tube 60ml, so for this tiny sample 30ml, it is £8.50 and on its current conversion, it is around CAD$15.18. You can purchase this at the Mitchell and Peach website.
PACIFICA NATURAL MINERALS WATERPROOF EYE PENCIL
Very pretty gun metal coloured eye liner! Perfect for fall and very flattering on my skin tone. Will definitely have a good use out of this throughout this season as it becomes cooler. You can purchase this at the Pacifica Beauty website for US$11.00 and this brand is 100% vegan and cruelty free!
CAILYN ART TOUCH TINTED LIP GLOSS
I almost screamed when I saw this in my glam bag – well okay, I am exaggerating a little but I was really so happy to get the deeper berry colour and not the nude-ish ones. Ipsters will either receive the Basic Instinct or this Love Affair shade. This is not sticky and it leaves my lips a nice glossy feel. It definitely is something that is worth repurchasing in the future. I am more of a nude / muted lip type of girl but this is the season where I tend to gravitate towards the bolder lip looks and I am really enjoying it! Try this product yourself for US$19.00 and get it from Cailyn Cosmetics website.
CROWN BRUSH INFINITY SHADOW – CREASE BRUSH DUET
I was in a Sigma kick the past few weeks and I love and adore that brand so much but having an extra dual ended brush won’t hurt at all! These brushes are very soft and they blend eye shadows well. The dual ended brush is on sale for US$6.99 on the Crown Brush website. The exact brush that I got is the C476 and original retail price is US$17.50.
The glam bag this month is a rocker chic type of pouch. A very cool studded gun metal toned make up bag that I can pack with me when I travel. Although I am not a hand cream type of person, it’s great to try these kinds of products every now and then. This month, my bag costs about $54.50 + of course the glam bag itself.
