July Favorites: Garnier, Mary Kay, Marcelle,Redken and more!

  1. Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil
    I'm currently obsessed with Argan oil. It's light oil can can be used on extensions, natural or relaxed hair. I use it on my ends to keep them moisturized.

  2. philosophy
    purity made simple
    foaming 3-in-1 cleansing gel for face and eyes
    I've never used a cleansing gel for my face & eyes before. Using a universal product like this was a nice change. I may purchase this product after I finish my sample.

  3. Mary Kay lash love waterproof mascara in Black
    Waterproof mascara is a blessing because its extremely hot in Canada. I would recommend that you have a good waterproof makeup remover so you don't destroy your lashes.

  4. Marcelle Climatik Outdoor Lip Balm SPF 30
    Every girl needs lip balm with SPF. Perfect for days when you don't feel like wearing anything.

  5. Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Smoothing Cream
    This is a must have for anyone who has frizzy hair. I almost used the whole tube on my vacation. It definitely defined my curls.After you wash your hair put a dime sized amount in and work it throughout your hair.

  6. Clear Hair & Scalp Therapy Total Care Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner
    I should have named these as 6. Not 6 & 7. Sorry! I used this product straight for 7 days on vacation and loved it. I couldn't stop smelling my hair. My favorite part was the fact that my hair felt very moisturized after. 
Have you tried any of these products?
