Welcome To True Canadian Beauty

Welcome to True Canadian Beauty

I am almost 40 and have multiple skin issues including aging. I am apart of some review clubs as well as I purchase an insane amount of beauty, skin and make up products! I am a health and wellness advocate and I am always trying to teach and help others obtain their goals. I give very tough honest reviews! Thought it would be important to be able to offer information to those looking for the answers to the same questions many woman between the ages of 35-65 ask! I will be writing reviews of my personal experiences. I am looking to start a youtube channel offering a more intimate way of communicating. I would love feedback on some ideas and questions you may have! I will do the research the product trials and post my reviews, tutorials on products and before and afters. I look forward in taking this as far as we can go! Its great to get real reviews from real people who really care and understand what you are going through ! My goal ,  is to motivate, uplift and offer support to all women of all ages. To help others learn self acceptance and confidence and know they are worth it! I have been working on becoming a make up artist who mainly works with people with major hurdles in life whether it was illness or accident , stress or age that has made them become self conscious . I want to help people feel good about themselves again and gain confidence. I want to be there and be able to teach healthy ways to I’ve a better quality of life.  We can explore and learn together loving ourselves from the inside out!

So Lets get started! Here is my December box!!img_1449

The Artisian Item this month was a Bath Bomb is 4 different scents $7.50 CAD(available at Easy) From sunbasilgarden.com 

I received mine in Sugar cookie!!mmmmmm Its looks fantastic and smells just like cookies! I have a thing for items that look or smell like sweets , an escape away from the harsh winter! Plus smells prove to be the strongest memory triggers so sweets bring me to my love of baking! I am very interested in trying more of this companies products! (with almond oil. Witch hazel, sea salt and kaolin clay amazing skin benefits ) This is the type of indulgence that is safe for the waist line!

The next item I received is an absolutely beautiful stained glass heart shaped pendant/ornament! Pretty smokey purples just stunning! Such a beautiful handmade item! I could totally see myself wearing this even though that may not be its main purpose! Hang in a little girls window just so it adds a pretty sparkle to her room! Get one as a gift to a mother or sister I am so impressed with this item!! It could also be used to hang from your tree!! This item can be found at(www.cratecharms.com) $10 CAD

The beauty item this month were 2 ESSIE nail polishes (gold) and (red) $17 CAD available at most retailers I find this brand on sale mostly at walmart and Pharma plus img_1620

Beautiful choice of colours for the holidays!!! I really liked the smell of the red one for some reason. I did a nail look for Christmas with them but I did not catch a photo in time before the Christmas hustle of cooking and baking started! Love the gold glitter I will have lots of use for that one and who does’t love a red nail! Power red right !! Very professional colour!

Next Beauty items I received were 2 deluxe size samples of Shampoo and conditioner from BAIN DE TERRE $8CADimg_1616

The orange bottle is strengthening conditioner which is perfect for my aging hair and the fact I bleach and colour my hair as often as I do plus with winter here I change my products to help me through the harsh climate and what winter does to my hair. The Purple bottle is colour enhancing shampoo and as I bleach my hair blonde I love using purple shampoo it keeps my blonde clean and fights brassiness. Love the smell of these products!! I am almost out I love them so much I will totally be buying more in the very near future! Great quality brand if you are looking to try something new! You can find them at (www.amazon.com)


My first Lifestyle item is a Gold Gladiator headband $31 CAD(available at www.mosaicbyali.com)img_1618

This is not your ordinary hurts behind the ears headband this head band is gorgeous!! It was so comfortable! I could not believe how well it wore it did not catch in my hair I could wear it for a full day and it did not hurt my head plus come on I felt like an Egyptian princess! I have not wore any type of head bands in years so I was sceptical at first but now I think I was totally inspired to want way more of these for my collection!! Wonderful way to change up your look with little effort! I think this was my favourite items this month to be honest!img_1498


Lastly this was a VIP EXCLUSIVE item this month Gold Scarf  $24CANimg_1617

I love the colour coordination with the headband in this box! Fashion scarves are wonderful! There are so many ways you can use them to change up your look. Gives a very professional look. You can also accessorize with clip flowers or broaches to give a different look ! I call it accessorizing your accessories!!!!img_1595
