Canadian Beauty Box “Winter” Review



“LIVE, LOVE, SHOP LOCAL”

Good Morning beautiful souls and welcome back to my channel, I am so so happy to have you here with me, especially on a Friday! I am so excited that it is finally the weekend, thank goodness man! It has been an absolute week let me tell you! Now it’s time to enjoy the weekend and the plans that arfe ahead! I have some fun plans ahead that I can not wait for! But today, I am so excited to share a collaboration that I have been working on for you beauts! I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review this gorgeous subscription box for the Winter from “Canadian Beauty Box”. This company fits me so perfectly, as they feature beauty, fashion and lifestyle products in their boxes. As you beauts know, I am a passionate beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger so this is golden! I honestly can not hide my excitement in this blog post! I am super stoked to share more about this company with you guys, and the goodies featured in this “winter” box! Shall we get started?!

Can we just take two seconds to acknowledge how adorable this box looks?!

I absolutely LOVE supporting local companies, especially when they are Canadian! Go Canada Go! I am excited this company is from Oakville Ontario, so that is pretty neat! How this company and subscription works is when you enter on the website, you have two payment options to choose from. You can choose to have one season subscription which retails for $69.95, or you can choose the one annual subscription which retails for $249.95. Once you have chosen, you are all set to go! Simply wait for your box to arrive! It’s that simple! Did I mention it’s free Canadian shipping? YUPP. Now what’s in this winter box you may be wondering…?

The product that I want to share with you beauts first is this moisturizing body bar. This bar is absolutely heavenly and feels amazing on your skin. Especially since the winter weather is approaching and the cold weather can create such dry skin. I love putting aside some self care time, and apply this on my body. These bars are made from unrefined food-grade cocoa butter and fair-trade, organic, refined shea butter. These bars are solid at room temperature but then honestly melt when they come into contact with skin. I know what you beauts may be thinking…does this product feel greasy on your skin? Absolutely not and that is what I adore about this! This “NYLA” moisturizing bar retails for $13.00.

The next goody that I am going to be talking about are these super adorable “Canadian Beauty” cabin socks that are the cutest when it comes to the winter season (these are shown up on the first picture). I don’t know about you beauts, but I love socks that are this style, especially when they keep your feet toasty warm as well! Can you say yes please? These socks are created by “K8 Creative Designs”.They give off such a cozy vibe and retail for $15.00.

The third product that I have been absolutely loving in the winter box is this “Nat’s Organic Lab Matcha Lip Balm”. I don’t know about you beauts, but I love a really good moisturizing lip balm in these harsh winter months. My lips are always insanely dry, and nobody has time for them cracked dry lips....am I right? I love the smell and feeling of this balm, it is super gentle. This product is made with 100% Japanese Matcha and other ingredients that will help your lips out immensely! When I say that I carry this product in my purse at ALL times… that is an understatement! Hands down. This product retails for $9.50.

“Hello weekend, I am glad you are here!”

For all you beauty and makeup lovers out there, this one is for YOU! I absolutely adore my makeup and can not get enough of lip products in general. I find adding some sort of lipstick to your makeup routine just enhances your look 100%! I am all for a great red lip with the holidays fast approaching. I think this looks so classy, especially with all the different festivities you may have planned! I am hooked you guys on this “Tin Feather Cosmetics Velvet Lipstick in the shade, “Viola”. GUYS….. GUYS…. can we just take two seconds to address how stunning this colour is! It is a beautiful soft raspberry red shade. This lipstick is super moisturizing and will not feel like your lips are drying out. I have tried numerous red lipsticks in the past but they have always dried out my lips making them look awful after a few hours! Not with this little guy. I can’t get over how flawless my lips look and how beautiful the packaging is as well! This is a must HAVE. This is a full coverage product and retails for $20.00.

I am a huge sucker for stunning earrings, anyone else?

I can’t get enough of these super adorable “NewBorn Feathers 8mm Earrings”. Honestly, these danty sparkly earrings are the absolute cutest! You beauts know I am all about my jewlery and fashion pieces always. These earrings can be paired with literally any outfit look that you had in mind! That is what I adore about these! This product retails for $29.00.

“Let’s support one another!”

The next two products that I want to share with you guys are the “Clean Organics Rose Chamomile Facial Toner”, and the “Design Me Hair, Fab Me”. I love both of these products so much! The toner is so refreshing, and it is super calming! I use this product after cleansing my face and before moisturizing my facial skin. This product is very therapeutic and can be used for the daytime or night time. This can also be used under your makeup or even on top for a refresher. This product retails for $22.00.

The other product is amazing for your hair! The Fab Me treatment has 18 benefits included in it which is amazing! This amazing product helps with colour fade protection, split end smoother, breakage prevention, free radical and heat damage protection, a revitalizer for hair’s natural protective layer, helps with detangling, static reduction and frizz control just to name a few! Holy heck that is unreal, sign me up for all of that! I love this product a ton and have been using it everyday nonstop! This one retails for $24.50.

I am a lashes kind of gal…..sign me up!

Last but not least, is this “LIp Service Beauty You GROW GIRL LASH ELIXIR”. This product is unreal for strengthening and lengthening your lashes with this natural and vegan mixture made up of castor oil, vitamin E and fractionated coconut oil. You can even use this product on your eyebrows as well which is amazing! This product works best when applied at night time as there is oil within it. This wonderful product retails for $25.00.

So my gorgeous souls, this is the end of the review! I hope you all enjoyed hearing about the lovely local beauty, fashion and lifestyle products located in this winter subscription box!

My Collaboration with “Gingersnap’s Crochet”

Good morning beautiful souls! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend either filled with relaxation or some fun filled plans! My plans unfortunately had to be postponed this Saturday, wasn’t feeling the absolute greatest sadly...tis the season! I am not really a huge fan of the cold! It involves loads of sicknesses and being chilly all the time! Makes me just want to hibernate….anyone with me!?

Baby it’s cold outside!

“…let’s stay cozy this winter!”

Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Although, something that does help me get through the cold season is cute outdoor attire, am I right? I am super excited to share this Canadian Company with you beauts! This company is from Vancouver, British Columbia and they are called, “Gingersnap’s Crochet”. This company provides handmade stylish crochet goods…. and let me just say talented this business is! They provide stunning toques from sizes 3 months to adults (Perfect for styling your kiddos in!)

“…brrrrrrrrrrrrr”

What is your favourite holiday drink?

I don’t know about you guys but I adore hats for the winter season! I think hats look super stylish and they are just so cozy! What I absolutely adore about these toques is that they come in different beautiful colours and you can take off the pompom if you wish for some! The colours look incredibly cozy! I received my toque in the shade, “Marble” which can be paired with so many outfits/outerwear apparel. These toques retail in store, depending on size, for around $48.13.

Who’s ready for the winter weather?!

The second item that I can not get enough of are these adorable cozies for your hot drinks! I am a huge lover of anything related to hearts so this had me at first sight! I received my cozy design with a huge white heart in the middle and a grey background. What I love about these and the toques is that there are so many stunning colours to choose from as well! There is another design for the cozies too which is a ton of small hearts all over it… just as adorable as this one! These retail for $13.75 in store. The cozies are super cute to bring to work when grabbing your Starbucks or your timmies! I love anything related to fashion, including my hot drinks! Are you the same!?

Hey at least this coffee is keeping my hands warm!

“…it’s cuddle weather!”
