MesmorEyes False Eyelashes for Hooded Eyes Review #EyeShapes

I can't believe that up until now, I had never tried false lashes! πŸ™ˆ In my younger years, wearing false lashes was not commonplace like it is now. Only the movie stars and models wore them back in the day. Needless to say, I had a lot of fun playing with these lashes!

Collections by MesmorEyes full lashes are hand knotted and feathered from 100% sterilized human hair. Their comfort band technology makes them comfortable to wear. SRP $12.99CAD

Suitable for most eye shapes: almond, monolids, round, and hooded.

The 3 pack that I received contains lashes for Day, Play, and Night. Each with varying degrees of drama. The pack did not contain any glue so I picked that up at the store separately.

Since I had never tried lashes in my life, I was a little worried about how things were going to go, but #MesmorEyesLashes false eyelashes for hooded eyes made it so easy!  It literally took me a few minutes to do both eyes. (*pats self on back). 

 In the bottom/after picture, I'm wearing the "day" lashes. 

There are basically 3 steps:
  1.  Apply after makeup application. Align lash band with natural lash line and trim if necessary
  2.  Apply lash glue along the lash band. Let set for 30 seconds until tacky
  3.  Position lash band above the natural lash line. Press corners down first, then work along the rest of the band, pressing firmly
Note: lashes can be reused. Just rinse gently under warm water to remove lash glue and place lashes back into the tray.

To my surprise, these were so easy to apply and hugged the curve of my hooded eyes perfectly! The band was very flexible and soft. I didn't have to trim them or anything. And, they weren't too heavy looking, so they didn't weigh down the look of my eyes. πŸ‘ The feeling took some getting used to since it was my first time wearing false lashes but I loved the look and how easy they were to apply.

Well, I'm glad I gave these lashes a try. I'm no longer a false eyelash virgin and I'm happy to have lashes that are not only easy to apply but flatter my hooded, aging eyes. Now, I'm ready for anything!

These lashes are available at:, select Pharmasave, Guardian IDA, and Value Drug Mart Stores.

Happy Friday!

New! EcoTools Facial Mask Mates Review #maskmate

Featured Product:
EcoTools Facial Mask Mates 4 piece kit / SRP $7.99USD / $10.99CAD
-Includes Applicator brush and 3 mask remover sponges.

This kit is meant to make masking easier and less messy. You apply your mask with the applicator brush and remove your mask with the sponges (used wet).

Although I'm a huge fan of EcoTools and have used their products for years, I have to admit that when I first received this kit I thought it was gimmicky and something that I probably wouldn't use. However, after using it for my at home masking sesh, I was immediately proven wrong and totally sold! Read on to find out why...

The brush in the kit is amazing for a mess-free application! Not only do I not have to get my masks all over my hands but it also allows for a much more precise application. It also keeps things more sanitary as you don't have to stick your hands into your mask jars.

The brush is soft and the shape and size of it make it perfect for applying your mask the contours of your face.

I normally remove my masks with a baby washcloth and I thought that was good! The sponges included in the kit put my baby wash clothes to shame! The sponges are SUPER soft and gentle on the skin. Just add warm water and they easily wipe away your mask without having to scrub. They rinse clean very easily as well.

Tip: Use the mask remover sponges with your cleanser during your everyday skincare routine to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. The sponges will gently exfoliate your skin.

From EcoTools:

The FACIAL MASK MATES set is specially designed for an at-home spa facial experience. This set includes a Mask Applicator Brush + 3 Mask Remover Sponges.

The Mask Applicator Brush is designed with soft, flat bristles to evenly apply cream, gel, or clay masks for full coverage, mess-free. The Mask Remover Sponges, made from natural plant pulp, help to remove excess product while gently exfoliating the skin for a smoother, more radiant appearance.

Good to Know:
  • The brush has an environmentally-friendly bamboo handle and cruelty-free bristles
  • Reusable cellulose sponges are the same quality as those used by spas!
  • Mask Mates packaging can be used as a mixing and application bowl

Makes appliction so easy!
The brush helps with precise application. No more mask gunk in my hair!

Feeling impressed! 
I got a little sloppy with my brows but the sponges in the kit removed that in a pinch!

The mask I used here is 7th Heaven Dead Sea Mud Mask which is great for clearing out your pores and left my skin oh so soft! (Full review to come).

After wetting the sponge with warm water, it becomes super soft and removes the mask with ease.

I can't believe how much more gentle these sponges are compared to my baby wash clothes that I used to use. I am converted!

My face feels clean as a whistle and softer than a baby's butt! πŸ‘Ά

If I wasn't holding my camera to snap this picture, I'd be holding 2 thumbs up! 

This kit proved me so wrong- it's no gimmick! It absolutely makes masking easier and less messy which makes me want to mask more now. This kit has totally changed my masking game! I was often lazy about masking or just too tired, it felt like a chore because of how messy it could be. Not anymore! Now I want to mask all the time and I just know that my skin is going to thank me!

If you hate the mess of masking too, I bet you will LOVE this kit as well. If you decide to give this kit it a shot I'd love to hear what you thought! πŸ’

This product is available at select Rexall, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, London Drugs, Guardian IDA, Lawtons Drugs, Proxim, Brunet, Familiprix, Uniprix stores.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme Review!

Featured Product:
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme 60 pads/ SRP $14.95

I'm a big fan of Nip + Fab products! They are really effective products at such affordable prices. Nip + Fab was founded by Maria Hatzistefanis who was also the founder of Rodial. Nip + Fab pack their products with innovative, high tech, and natural ingredients that work!

My Skin type:
Oily/ combo, dehydrated, aging, acne prone, reactive (I know, nice mix!)

About Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme:
Super-strength acid exfoliating facial pads to target oily + congested skin.
A more potent version of our bestselling glycolic fix pads, these extreme night pads contain our highest level of glycolic acid at 5% and have been further enhanced with the addition of salicylic acid, making these your ultimate night treatment to refine pores, brighten the complexion and de-congest the skin through the improvement of the skin’s natural exfoliation process. Easily incorporated into a weekly routine, use one pad at night 2-3 times a week. For more sensitive skin types we advise usage once a week.

Active Ingredients:
  • 5% glycolic acid: gently exfoliates the skin + helps fade discolouration on the face e.g. acne scarring, pigmentation
  • salicylic acid: penetrates into + unclogs pores helping to combat black heads + reduce blemishes
  • lactic acid: removes dead cells + toxins from the skin for a smoother + more even toned surface
  • hyaluronic acid: improves skin hydration + keeps skin feeling soft + plump

I've been using these glycolic pads for 3 weeks now. Since I use Retin-A at night, I used these during the daytime. I was concerned that it may be too much to use both since my skin can be reactive but I haven't experienced any issues using both my Retin-A and Nip + Fab's Glycolic Night Pads Extreme. There was no stinging, burning, peeling or anything. These turned out to be very effective yet very gentle.

The pads are nicely saturated and one pad is enough for my face, neck, and chest, and you can utilize both sides of the pads.

I used the pads a few times a week in the morning before applying my other skincare. I recommend using SPF anyways, but especially when using acids.

Sometimes when I use skincare like acids, I feel like if I don't feel a burn or stinging sensation,  I assume they aren't working. These pads proved me wrong! The burn or sting that I feel with some products may not be a good thing as it's usually a sign of irritation. These pads were super gentle on my reactive skin, I didn't feel any burn or sting and I saw results really quickly! Talk about win-win!

My skin looks much clearer than it has in a long time, and I can barely see the pores on my cheeks and forehead! Prior to using these pads, the pores on my forehead and cheeks looked like craters on my face! It was pretty unsightly. It made me look older and it looked as if there was dirt in my pores although my skin was clean. I wasn't sure what to do about these unsightly pores, to be honest, so I'm certainly glad that these pads came into my life! I also had a couple of blemishes from a sunscreen that I was trying out and these pads cleared up those blemishes as well. I still have hyperpigmentation thanks to years of frying my skin in the sun, but I think it will take some laser treatments to get rid of that completely.

Another benefit is that because the acids in these pads exfoliate the skin, it allows our other skincare products to do their job even better as they can penetrate the skin better and more easily.

My skin is far from perfect but I'm happy to have found another effective product that helps me make my 49-year-old skin look the best that it can. I will definitely be making these pads a regular part of my skincare routine and I'm happy that they are so affordable! πŸ’—

Awkward No Makeup Selfie

The Glycolic Night Pads Extreme retail for $14.95 and are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharma Prix across Canada.
