If you haven’t tried an eyelash serum yet, this is your sign.
You guys know I absolutely love LASHFOOD, an eyelash growing serum that I have been using a few years now and have seen great results from. As much as I loved the look of eyelash extensions, they just don’t work for my lifestyle and not to mention, they are incredibly expensive. As a result, I have been getting a lash lift and tint, which is a procedure I have been loving.
I recently got one done at BB Artistry here in Winnipeg and picked up the Revive7 Revitalizing Lash & Brow Serum (C$90), which is a lash and brow serum that increases overall lash health and volume. With regular everyday use (you apply it along the lash line morning and night), you will notice fuller, thicker and stronger lashes within a few weeks. Like LASHFOOD, this serum is also vegan and cruelty-free and made with seven clean and natural ingredients.
I’ve always wanted to try Revive7, so I was so excited to get it and I also got their Revive7 Revitalizing Serum Mascara (C$65), which includes the serum in the formula.
The mascara nourishes and strengthens lashes while also making them look more fuller, longer, and noticeable. The formula is vegetarian (it has beeswax in it) and cruelty-free and also includes natural ingredients. I love the idea of having a mascara with the serum and think this is something that would pair beautifully with a lash lift and tint since your lashes already look long and curled.
This mascara features an oval-shaped brush, which allows you to push lashes up. Truthfully, I didn’t think this mascara was anything special for the mascara portion, but I love the fact that it has the serum in it. Plus, I have a lash lift, so my lashes are already lifted, as a result, this just coats them making them look more noticeable and fuller. If you have a lash lift, or get them regularly, then I recommend picking this mascara up for the serum in it alone.
This mascara is on the pricier side, but if you are looking to grow your lashes and you use mascara regularly then I would definitely pick this up. Although I’m sure it doesn’t work as well as their original serum, this is a more affordable alternative to the serum alone, plus it adds a little bit of drama to the lashes.
Have you ever tried Revive7?

Did you know that Evelyn H. Lauder, the founder of Estee Lauder, co-created the famous breast cancer pink ribbon?
It all happened in 1992, when The Campaign was created, and it supports more than 60 organizations worldwide to raise funds, educate, support, and create a world without breast cancer.
As part of the companies largest corperate social impact program, their breast cancer campaign has raised more than $99 million globally for lifesaving research, education, and medical services, with more than $80 million funding 321 media research grants through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the highest-rated non-profit breast cancer organization in the U.S., which was actually founded by Lauder in 1993.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. In 2020, the Canadian Cancer Society, estimated that on average, 75 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every, and on average, 14 Canadian women will die from breast cancer every day.
As you can see, finding a cure for breast cancer is super important, and as you may know, October is breast cancer awareness month.
As part of The Campaign, 19 brands under the Estee Lauder Group of Companies umbrella have released special-edition pink breast cancer products, where proceeds from those items go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The companies participating include AERIN, Aveda, Bobbi Brown, Bumble and bumble, Clinique, Darphin, DKNY, Donna Karan, Dr. Jart+, Estée Lauder, GLAMGLOW, Jo Malone London, La Mer, Lab Series, Michael Kors, Origins, Smashbox, Tom Ford Beauty, and Too Faced. Each will sell Pink Ribbon Products or make donations to BCRF and/or other charitable organizations around the world.
In honour of this important campaign, Estee Lauder sent over a box with some of these products in it to highlight this important initiative, and if you purchase any of these products regularly, I do encourage you to pick up one of these special-edition items this month so that your money goes to a good cause.
The first item is one of Estee Lauder’s most iconic products and one that they always release a special-edition of during this time.
The Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex (C$132) is a serum that helps to reduce multiple signs of aging caused by environmental assaults of modern life. With regular use (although the term ‘night’ is in the title, you can use it during the day as well), your skin will look smoother, younger, and more radiant and toned.
This special-edition version of their iconic ANR serum comes in a pink camouflage sleeve that honours and supports breast cancer awareness.
Another star Estee Lauder product to pick up is the Estee Lauder Brave & Beautiful Kit (C$48), which is valued at C$155 and totally worth the money to pick up!
This kit comes housed in that same cute pink camouflage print and the bag opens up to a matching eye sleep mask, as well as a 30ml of the Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion, 15ml of the Resilience Multi-Effect Tri-Peptide Face and Throat Cream SPF15, 5ml of the Resilience Multi-Effect Tri-Peptide Eye Cream, a full-size of the Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lip in 420 Rebellious Rose (which retails for C$43 alone), and a deluxe travel size of the Pure Colour Envy Colour Replenish Lip Balm.
Again, for only $48, this is a steal considering that you get lots of deluxe sizes of skincare, a really cute travel makeup bag, a sleep mask, and a full-size lipstick (which is basically the cost of the set). Plus, part of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. Snap this one up before it sells out!
The last item is the Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme with Shampure (C$27), which is such an iconic Aveda product (if you have been to an Aveda salon, you know how good this hand cream is!).
This hand cream delivers intense moisture to soothe dry hands, something we all need as we head into colder, drier weather. This formula includes andiroba oil and other plant hydrators to help infuse skin with nourishment for softer and smoother hands. This cream also includes their iconic Shampure aroma, which is a calming blend of 25 pure flower and plant essences.
Pick it up at Aveda.ca or your local Aveda salon. $10 U.S. of the purchase price goes towards the BCRF.
There are a ton of other products to choose from that support the BCRF and if you can do so, I highly recommend picking something up this month to bring awareness to breast cancer and to help gain a world where this disease doesn’t exist.

Skincare, skincare, skincare! Can you ever really get enough?
When the price tag is high? Probably then…
In 2021 you really don’t need to spend a fortune on skincare when there are so many brands out there offering amazing products and quality at a great price. One of these brands is Indeed Labs, which is an affordable brand you can find in drugstores and online. I’ve been using their products for years and love how they come out with natural alternatives to so many different skincare items that traditionally contain more scientific ingredients.
Anyways, I recently got in a few items from the brand over the summer when I was away in Montreal and since my skin is starting to change with the season I figured now would be a great time to dive in and talk about them.
Indeed Labs Gluconolactone 10% Exfoliating Toner
Looking for more glowing skin? Then pick up Indeed Labs new Gluconolactone 10% Exfoliating Toner (C$12.99). This toner helps to brighten discolouration, clean out pores, hydrate and soothe skin. It contains poly-hydroxy-acids (PHAs), including gluconolactane, which gently dissolves dead skin cells to give you a more glowing complexion.
This toner will not sting your face, making it perfect for those with sensitive skin. It also helps to hydrate skin and deliver antioxidants, which helps with toning down inflammation. The formula also contains five per cent betaine, which works with the gluconolactone to restore moisture balance and protect from free-radical damage. In addition, the botanical extracts of lemon and sage calm and soothe skin.
This toner feels amazing on the skin and can be used both morning and night.
Indeed Labs Retinol Reface Skin Resurfacer & Wrinkle Repair
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s very important to use a retinol product once you hit your mid-20s a couple times a week. Now I’m not talking about the medical-grade retinol that you get from your pharmacist (unless you have major skin concerns), but rather one that you can find at the drugstore.
Indeed Labs has a number of retinol products and the Retinol Reface Skin Resurfacer & Wrinkle Repair (C$17.99) is a three-in-one formula that combines retinol, bakuchiol (a plant-based retinol alternative), and a retinol-like peptide to give you softer, smoother, and visibly younger-looking skin. The formula is also safe to use for all skin types.
So why should use retinol? Well, I use it for its anti-aging benefits. Both retinol and bakuchiol are known to be really effective with aging concerns. Retinol products are designed to be used at night and this concentrated night cream quickly targets signs of aging by helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as minimizing redness. In addition, it also helps to enhance skin tone, hydration, elasticity, radiance, brightness, and firmness.
Retinol Reface Eye Cream
Pair the night cream with the Retinol Reface Eye Cream (C$22.99), which is a retinol formula that is gentle enough to use on the under-eye area.
Designed to help with signs of aging, this eye cream features a lightweight texture that helps with crow’s feet, dark circles, and wrinkles. It contains retinol esters that work without any irritation, as well as ribose to rejuvenate tired-looking skin, and honey locust seed extract to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Although the formula packs a powerful punch, it is safe enough for all skin types and is designed to be used at night while you sleep.
I really love Indeed’s products and love when they come out with new releases. Best part is that in general, the line is very affordable so you can get amazing skincare without the high price tag. Their products are also cruelty-free, paraben free, and they are a Canadian company. All wins in my books!
