Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly and whether we celebrate it or not it’s always fun to pamper ourselves regardless, wouldn’t you say? Farleyco was wonderful enough to send me a pampering kit with some of their popular brands to get prepped and primed with, alongside an awesome Valentine’s Giveaway for you guys! Here’s my thoughts and a peak on the wonderful goodies.
I’ve seen the I love… brand at Shopper’s Drug Cart stores but have never purchased any of their products before. I always thought the packaging was super cute since they have many attention grabbing scents and flavours to choose from. I was glad to have finally been given the chance to try out their new Vanilla and Ice Cream Bath and Shower Crème.
When I first opened it to take a whiff it surprised me with how accurate of a vanilla ice cream scent it was. The smell makes it tempting to eat since it also reminds me a lot of a butterscotch scent, which makes the bath and your surroundings smell absolutely delicious. I wouldn’t classify this is a cream but a moisturizing gel instead since it’s more on the clear side and lathers up easier than cream formulas. Just a small drop or two on a loofah is all you really need for this to work at it’s best.
Shampooing your hair every single day can strip away the good oils that makes your hair healthy and strong. Especially for those like myself who have long hair and workout almost everyday know that it can be a struggle to not wash your hair after building up a good sweat. Luckily the invention of dry shampoos came along and have improved a lot over the past years.
I received two COLAB Dry Shampoos in the fragrances, New York and Tokyo. New York is a part of their Extreme Volume collection which has a refreshing fruity almost soft tangerine-like scent to it. I’d say that it doesn’t add a huge amount of extreme volume but it does add back the volume you had a day or two before when you last washed your hair. On the other hand, Tokyo is a part of their Sheer + Invisible collection and is described as an oriental fragrance which smells of florals and is a very feminine scent.
The last few items I received were three face mask from 7th Heaven (previously named Montagne Jeunesse). I’ve got to be complete honest here when I say I’ve never been fond of the design of the packaging. I find it actually a bit loud and terrifying. We all know it’s very hard to pull off looking glamorous when we’re doing our at home spa days so I’ll forgive them for that, however it would have been nice to have a more modern design along with their recent name change as well.
Although the packaging isn’t my thing, the quality and formulation is there and it shows. Since I have oily skin I gravitated towards the Dead Sea Mud Pack which gave my skin an amazing all over cooling sensation. I’ve tried other mask before but this one has to be the most lightweight and smoothest to apply. What I didn’t know is that 7th Heaven is cruelty-free and vegetarian friendly which gets major pointers since I always try to improve my lifestyle and the way I choose my beauty products.
It’s time! Just to recap, one winner will receive:
– 1 I love… Vanilla and Ice Cream Bath and Shower Crème
– 2 COLAB Dry Shampoos in the Tokyo and New York scents
– 3 7th Heaven facial masks
– 1 makeup bag (not pictured)
