HollyBerry Mineral Makeup Review

HollyBerry Mineral Makeup Review and Swatches at Craftadian

You may remember HollyBerry from my previous review of their skincare line.  She makes the most amazing Milk Chocolate body lotion.  They recently expanded to include mineral makeup and I got some face products and eyeshadows to try out! Starting with the face products, the range includes four products suitable for light to medium skintones.  I my case, especially so close to winter, this often means they are too dark but these do work for pale skin.

It’s Only Natural Bath & Skincare Review

It's Only Natural Fergus Ontario Craftadian Review - Canadian Indies

Hamilton has a great indie business scene.  I am lucky enough to live not far from James St N where there are lots of small local businesses and stores that stock products from the home based indies like the James North General Store and others.  The thriving indie businesses mean we are lucky enough to host quite a few makers markets, craft shows and popups each year.  The next one is Craftadian happening this Saturday at McMaster Innovation Park and[Read more]

Smoother Hair with Nexxus City Shield

Nexxus City Shield Haircare Review

Bad hair days are part of my life.  I can straighten my hair, leave the house with nice sleek hair and two hours later, pass a window and it looks like Medusa took over my head.  I have this frizz thing happening that requires so much product that my hair looks a mess just after washing and styling.  So haircare that helps with frizz without adding too much weight or product is a plus. I recently tried out Nexxus City[Read more]
