I came across this amazing lip balm awhile ago and decided I should do a post about them already! EOS – Evolution of Smooth, makes body lotions, shave cream and these cute and effective lip products! They look a little different then conventional chapsticks, and are too cute!

EOS lip balm

They are gluten, paraben and petroleum free! Not only so they look cute and do wonders for your lips, they smell yummy as well. I recommend picking one up (or two!) and trying them. I promise you’ll fall in love too!

I recently found this website and I thought I would talk about it as my first CTO! (check this out!)

It’s called Skin Deep. Basically you type in a product and it will tell you numerous things about it. You type in a product and it will give you a number from 1 – 10 rating it’s health concerns and hazard level. For example I used: Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Moisturizer. This is what it looks like…

Full page here.

Overall, this is rated at a 6, which is moderate. Then further down the page it lists the product’s ingredients and THEIR rating and associated health concern(s).

I highly recommend bookmarking this site and checking on some of the products you use daily. Even the most UNTHINKABLE companies and products are bad news bears. Keep your skincare from low to moderate and try to avoid products rated at a 7 to a 10. Stay healthy and beautiful!

I stopped in at Winners this weekend looking for some ELF palettes I had seen last time and not purchased. Unfortunately there were none left but I did manage to find a few other things!

First an OPI polish I had to have, I love the color! Like a dark plumish-red.

Lately I’ve been trying to find compact sized make-up or smaller sizes to put in my purse. I also take a bag with me to Shawn’s on the weekend and would like to have to carry as little as possible. When I found this I fell in love! A small black clutch-like palettes with eyeshadows, blush, highlight and lip gloss!

And last but not least, I came across a 3-brush set from XOXO and I thought they were so cute! There is a foundation brush, powder brush and one for eyeshadow.

All those goodies and it cost me under $40! The eyeshadows are very nice and the nail polish looks great! Living in Canada, Winners is a great place to find beauty products for a much more affordable price!
