Soft Lips Cube Review + Giveaway

SoftLips Canada CUBE Giveaway

Now that the colder weather is coming I have already found that my lips are getting drier. Having chapped lips makes your lip products not look their best so keeping them hydrated and smooth is a must. The new Soft Lips Cube* lip balms ($4.99) are said to keep your lips soft and smooth all the while looking cute too!

5-1 Lip care with Lip Perfecting Technology to deliver 5 lip loving benefits:

  • Hydrates – formulated with Shea Butter to restore moisture
  • Replenishes – with antioxidant Vitamins A, C, & E
  • Smoothes – rich emollients leaves lips silky and soft
  • Protects – long lasting moisture to protect against dryness
  • Adds Shine – for a perfect radiant finish

I love trying out different lip products because I am always on the hunt for that holy grail balm. These lip balms have the most amazing scents and remind me a lot of the EOS lip balms in terms of the dome shape. These however are much smaller and not as cumbersome which I love. Berry Bliss* has a very cooling effect when on the lips which feels really nice and it smells so delicious too! Vanilla Bean* also has an amazing scent and these balms give your lips a shiny finish and feel really smoothing and emollient on the lips.

ModCloth Fashion Inspired Nail Art Challenge


Nail art is a great way to spice up your normal manicure, and the possibilities are endless. I was invited by ModCloth to participate in their nail art challenge which required me to create a nail design based off one of their amazing dresses. I often browse the ModCloth website because I find they have the prettiest dresses that I can’t help but swoon over.

When browsing through the hundreds of dresses this one in particular caught my eye. The Every Which Milky Way dress is an absolute stunner and I knew I had to create a look inspired by it. The mixture of bright colours really pop against the dark fabric so I decided to paint my nails a coat of black, and stipple on the colours with a makeup sponge. I then added a glittery pink polish to add some sparkle and dimension.

I had fun creating this nail art design, and you can see ModCloth’s Nail Klub article for their manicures on their blog here if you are interested!

Face Masks


Face masks were one of those things that I didn’t really get into until this past year and I kick myself for not getting into them sooner. I would use them on and off but really didn’t love them as I do now. As I have gotten older my skin has become even drier and I find myself reaching for face masks much more frequently and in return they have really done wonders for my skin.

I picked up the Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask a month ago and I am already a die hard fan. I was recommend the product by a lovely blogger named Andrew James during one of the weekly chats and I couldn’t be more thankful. The mask has banana, almonds and oats which is perfect for dehydrated skin like mine. You just apply it to your face, leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with warm water and you can instantly see the difference that it makes to your skin. This is great for when your skins quite dry and really needs that boost of moisture and it also smells good enough to eat!

The Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial* is a new favourite of mine that I have been trying out for the past few weeks. Unlike the Oatifix by Lush, this mask you can keep on overnight and don’t need to wash off. I love this because the Greek yoghurt is very hydrating, but it isn’t heavy or greasy on the skin. It has a very nice, light fragrance as well that is really pleasant and the mask soaks into the skin effortlessly. I use this on a nightly basis and when I wake up I can still feel that my skin is moisturized unlike some other masks that I have tried. It has made my skin feel so much smoother and plumper which is amazing for someone which such dry skin as myself. I have to say, I’m really impressed!

Now that the colder weather is approaching I highly recommend picking up some face masks to keep your skin moisturized and nourished. You will see after just a few uses just how much of a difference they make, and who doesn’t want to treat their skin to a little treat every now and then?

What are your favourite face masks?
