Weekend Haul

Hi everyone,
This weekend in Toronto was hot and sunny. I took advantage of the warm weather by going shopping with my mom and sis and I also went to see a movie with my sisters. After that we went to Jack Astors for lunch and sat out on the sunny patio enjoying the day. We even went to the park for a walk and had ice cream.
 I also got some shopping done with my hubby for our upcoming trip to Dubai and I am going to share some of the things I purchased. 

I will have full reviews on some of these beauty products when I get back but right now I am sleep deprived and exhausted. 

Dubai has very hard water that can be damaging to your hair so for my trip I loaded up on hair products.  

*Neutrogena triple moisture deep recovery mask which is a weekly treatment containing olive, meadowfoam seed and sweet almond oil to give you soft lustrous hair.

*Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner: alcohol free, non sticky, lightweight, defines curls and gives hold. contains jojoba oil, safflower oil, primrose oil, wheat protein and collagen.

* Curl Enhancing smoothie:  Anti-frizz, moisture and shine
*Aussie 3 Minute Miracle and Aussie  Moist: deep conditioner and conditioner which I love because they make my hair soft and moisturized. 

*Elasta QP feels like silk leave in: Vitamin rich, softens and detangles. It is also a humectant 
*Suave rosemary mint conditioner: 100% natural oils, helps cleanse and provides softness
*Caress Tahitian Renewal: With pomegranate seeds. This body wash smells tropical, fruity and delicious.
*Colgate Optic white: Helps whiten teeth, I think the results are pretty slow but it does help slow down the yellowing or discolorations.

I got these samples by benefit
*Benefits they`re real mascara
*Benefits highlighter
*Maybelline Vivids: Vibrant mandarin lipstick 885
*Sinful Colors nail polish: matte, in the color Dream in 113
*Sally Hansen Insta-dry: Lickety-split lime 450 

*Aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser: For clear skin and to help prevent breakouts
*MAC prolong wear concealer in NC45
*MAC studio fix foundation in NC45
*Secret clear gel deodorant in the scent oh la la lavender (this is my favorite deodorant)
*Urban Decay`s All Nighter, makeup setting spray   
*Nude pro genius treatment oil: Created with omega oils that absorb into the skin to give you a dewy complexion. Apply to the face after cleansing and before applying makeup. (I don`t care for the smell of this product)
*By Nature rejuvenating eye cream: Contains rosehip, collagen, argan oil and aloe vera to help reduce the look of dark circles and firm. 
*imPress stick on nails: This product uses no glue, does not damage the nails and lasts a week. (These are too small for my long nail beds so I will be giving them away)
*Montagne Jennesse dead sea mud pack: For ultra deep pore cleansing
I tried to get longer dresses and clothes for this trip to respect the culture in Dubai, I will be wearing a light cardigan over my strapless dresses and tops when out in public areas.
*Long pink and gray striped ankle length skirt:  Costa Blanca
*Long printed ankle length dress 
*Printed fringed T-shirt: Forever 21
*Star print t-shirt: Forever 21
*Sheer black blouse with studded sleeves
*Fila active foam flip flops-These flip flops are the most comfortable flip  flops I have ever owned, they cushion your feet and are great for walking. 

 I will have full reviews coming up for some of these beauty products.

  5. great haul! cant wait for your review on that Neutrogena hair mask. Safe trip and have fun in Dubai!

    1. Thanks Jackie, I will post that review when I get back :)

  6. Lots of good stuff here. Have you tried the Curl Enhancing smoothie yet? I use it on the weekends to give my hair a break from my every day do. It does okay and it smells great, but it still leaves me with some frizz.

    1. Thanks, Yes I use the smoothie all the time and I do like it. I think I like the ingredient list more than anything, and although it does help my curls look better I always need to use it with other products like a leave in conditioner.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I love hearing from all of my amazing readers. Have a wonderful day!
