I can’t believe it has been 6 months since I started blogging! Time really flies when you’re enjoying and having fun with a new hobby. I know it hasn’t been that long at all, but if it wasn’t for my blog, I wouldn’t have tried out some amazing brands and products, met new friends from the blogging community, and have a small piece of the internet that I can call my own!
Evy Jo & Co is an online modern apothecary based in Montreal with an artisan line of handcrafted and 100% natural bath and skincare products. All the ingredients (such as herbs, essential oils, clays, etc.) are plant-based, organic, raw, or sustainably-sourced from Canadian and Québec-based suppliers. I discovered the brand on Instagram and after asking the Founder/Owner Evelyn about her brand and products, she was kind enough to send me some to try out!
This radiance-restoring serum ($50) is tailored to people in their 20s to 30s who start to notice that their skin doesn’t recover from stress as easily as it once did, a.k.a. me. On top of getting your glow on, this serum claims to also refine texture, shrink pores, and blur imperfections, giving you fresher, brighter and smoother skin altogether. That’s a lot of promises from just a bottle of serum, so does it really do all that?
Ever since I got my hair done last month, I have been on the lookout for products to help manage the damage from bleaching without ruining my hair colour. And I’ve found it! If you tend to put your hair through heating tools or harsh treatments, the Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover line will get your hair stronger, softer, and shinier without the use of awful chemicals and fillers.
A few months ago I did a really large haul at Sephora and picked up a few skincare sets, including this Laneige Brightening Kit. This kit retails for $18 only so these radiance-boosting products are pretty small, but they will still last for more than just a week or two for you to really test out the results. And it is still available on Sephora Canada!
