Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are still enjoying time with loved ones, and maybe playing a little bit with any fun stuff you received :) I myself woke up today to remember that I could brew a nice cuppa with my new Keurig coffee brewer – woooooo!!! I never get gadgets for Christmas but this is one that I totally can get down with!
I just wanted to let you know quickly that eBeauty.ca is having a Boxing Day sale today – 20% off almost every single brand (with just a couple exceptions)! I have been culling WAY back on makeup and cosmetics shopping but I might give in just for this deal – I do have a few items I need to get. Here are my suggestions for some products to try:
1. Consonant’s Organic Foaming Face Wash,
reg. $18CAD, today $14.40CAD - I’ve been using this for the past couple months and LOVE the way it cleanses my skin while leaving it actually feeling hydrated, and not stripped, but still clean. Usually foams get used up fast but I still have about half of the bottle left!
2. Clarisonic Mia 2 Next Generation Sonic Cleansing System,
reg. $175CAD, today $140CAD - I don’t own this system but I keep thinking I should; seems I’m behind the times as everyone else I know (um…in the blogging world anyway, in my day-to-day life, not so much :P) has one and swears by it! If you missed grabbing this during the Sephora VIB sale like I did, this could be your chance!
3. butter London 3 Free Lacquers in Snog, Royal Navy, Henley Regatta, Come to Bed Red, and Bossy Boots;
reg. $17CAD, today $13.60CAD – If you recall, I absolutely ADORE Snog (top 5 fave nail colors!), and Come to Bed Red is a staple red in my collection. I just bought Royal Navy a couple weeks ago and LOVE it, and was sorely tempted to also buy Henley Regatta – now might be my chance! Last spring I kept passing up Bossy Boots but I kept wishing I hadn’t – with Spring collections coming out right about now, I might go for it this time around!
4. Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Treatment Mask,
reg. $34.50CAD, today $27.60CAD – This is a New Zealand skincare line that I just found on eBeauty, and I so want to try it! Manuka Honey has some majorly intense healing and antibacterial qualities, more so than regular honey, and is a big deal in NZ. Since its wintertime, hydration is key and I’m in the market for a new mask – score!
5. Philip B. White Truffle Nourishing and Conditioning Creme,
reg. $82.50CAD, today $66CAD – This has been on my wishlist forEVER, but I can never justify spending so much money on a conditioner. I still don’t know if I can give in to this insanely high price even with the discount, but if you’re looking to spoil yourself, this is supposed to be the creme de la creme of leave-in treatments!
6. theBalm FratBoy Shadow Blush,
reg. $22CAD, today $17.60CAD – I really like the two shades of theBalm blush I already have, and am a sucker for corals (who isn’t), so I’m tempted to pick this up. They also have the Meet Matt(e) ($29.20CAD from $36.50CAD) and the Nude ‘Tude ($30.40CAD from $38CAD) palettes available, both of which have gotten excellent reviews across the blogosphere!
7. John Masters Organics Lavender Avocado Intensive Conditioner,
reg. $31CAD, today $24.80CAD – Here is one item I actually need – a deep conditioner. My favorite yet, Earth Science’s Olive & Avocado Deep Conditioning Masque, is not sold at my local green grocers anymore, so I had to find a new one. John Masters is an eco-conscious hair line and this conditioner sounds amazing. I was going to pick it up in January, but with about $6 off, I’m not going to wait until then!
8. Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM,
reg. $71.50CAD, today $57.20CAD – Another enduring wishlist purchase, you’ve heard me say before how much I want to incorporate retinol into my skincare routine. This product seems to fit the bill perfectly! Interestingly, it costs $75CAD at Sephora so you’re already getting a slight bargain buying it from eBeauty in the first place!9. Senna Cosmetics Sheer Face Color Pressed Powder Blush, reg. $20.50CAD, today $16.40CAD – I first heard about Senna Cosmetics via Makeup Morsels, then went gaga over a couple of their blush featured on theNotice, Rae’s “OMG-SO-AMAZING” claims which were backed up by Eye Heart It. I didn’t even realize the brand was sold on eBeauty, so when I did I snapped up ‘Clarity’ (the blush that won Rae’s heart) in a flash. 10. Japonesque Makeup Brushes – I’m trying hard to focus less on purchasing makeup and more on application tools, and have a list of a few brushes I lack. The Japonesque line seems to be of good quality and reasonably priced, so with a 20% discount, you can’t go wrong!
There are also a few other key brands to check out! I’ve heard nothing but good things about Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup from Becca at The Beauty Sample; all styles are available of the Katy Perry Lashes, which continues to be one of my most viewed posts; and Vasanti, a Canadian line, is also carried by the e-tailer, and is also supposed to be quite lovely. They also have the RMS Beauty line, so if you’ve been wanting to try the popular ‘Un Cover-Up,‘ here’s your chance!
So, off you go! The offer is only on until 11:59pm EST, and shipping is free within Canada on all orders of $50 or more! Enjoy, my lovelies!!
