Review of Kicode Collapsible Storage Boxes Drawer Divider 4 Set

These collapsible storage boxes are a great product. They are very stylish in the cream colour with the dark brown accents. They are pretty sturdy for collapsible storage boxes but at the same time the fabric dividers inside the box is thin so there is some give in case something doesn't fit in the cell perfectly. They collapse and assemble with a zipper running diagonally along the bottoms of the boxes. If/when not in use, these boxes can be stored away lying flat...just unzip the bottom!

 Finally Organized My Messy Sock/Underwear Drawers!!

One of the boxes unzipped

The dimensions for each product are as follows:
6 cell box: 33cm x 15cm x 9.5cm;
7 cell box: 33cm x 31cm x 9.5cm;
8 cell box: 28cm x 14cm x 9.5cm;
24 cell box: 33cm x 31cm x 9cm

All 4 storage boxes

These storage boxes have helped me so much in keeping my drawers more organized, and I've actually stuck with keeping them organized! It helps a lot to actually have a product in the drawer dividing everything, rather than trying to keep everything folded and neat without any dividers. It is a great price for a pack of 4 boxes. Plus, being organized (and staying organized!) is priceless. So they are a great value. They've held up very well so far, and I'm guessing they will hold up for quite some time (since all they are doing is sitting in my drawer, making it look pretty).

Definitely recommended for anyone looking to get organized!

REVIEW - Lise Watier Hydraforce Hydra-Protective Creme Gel

I've been using the Lise Watier Hydraforce Creme Gel for a couple of weeks now and my skin has never felt so hydrated. It is very gentle on my skin, I had no reaction to the formula at all. It was instantly hydrating, and through continued use the moisture sank in deeper and deeper. Like I said, my skin has never felt better. 
The only downfall (in my opinion) is the price. $45 is great for the product quality, but not everyone can afford a $45 moisturizer regularly. But if you can spend the money, I definitely recommend that you spend it on this product. 

As you can see from the results below, my skin hydration levels were amazing after using this product.

Thanks to Lise Watier and the Topbox GlamSense program, I was able to try this Lise Watier Hydraforce product for free in exchange for my honest review.

REVIEW - LiveFresh Natural Blotting Paper

**Disclaimer: I received this product for free from the company in exchange for my honest opinion.**

This post will be a review of LiveFresh Natural's blotting paper. LiveFresh is a Canadian company located in British Columbia.

The package and a sheet of blotting paper

The package of 100 sheets is a very convenient size, roughly the size of a thin card holder, so it is easy to take with you just about anywhere. The sheets don't irritate skin and are infused with green tea extract.

I can't attest to whether they are safe to use with makeup or not (I don't wear makeup too often).

As for durability, they seem to hold up pretty well, but I found that when the sheet got pretty saturated and you wipe it along your face it could tear. My face is a bit on the oily side, so if you are like me I would suggest maybe using two sheets if you are going to do your entire face. If your face is less oily or you are only touching up certain spots, one sheet should do the job without tearing. 

The sheets are also very easy to take out of the package, they don't tear when you take them out, and they don't stick to each other either, which is great. You don't want to be fiddling around with sheets anywhere, anytime. 

Overall, I would say this product is great!

REVIEW - Garnier Whole Blends Haircare

***Disclaimer: I received these products for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I also will be receiving a $25 VISA gift card once my review is posted. This will in no way influence my review of the reviews and opinions are always genuinely my own.***

I received a full size shampoo and a full size conditioner from Garnier's new Whole Blends line of haircare products. I tested out the "Repairing" formula, "Honey Treasures" (royal jelly, honey, propolis). 

First off, let me tell you a little bit about this new line. Whole Blends takes wholesome ingredients and blends them in unique combinations to focus on a unique hair action rather than a hair need. (For example, Heals and Protects rather than damaged hair.) This line is paraben free and uses gentle sulfates, so it is okay to use on just about any head of hair. Their ingredients are purchased fairly and sustainably to support local farmers and communities. It is produced in facility that is committed to sustainability, reducing waste by 58% and water consumption by 47% since 2005.

Now, each line has 3 different products (to be used together for best results) - a shampoo, a conditioner and a mask treatment. I got to test out the shampoo and conditioner, which is probably more than I would use out of a haircare line to be honest. Usually, I'm just a shampoo kinda girl :) Sometimes a 2-in-1. ANYWAY...lets start with the shampoo. The shampoo smells very nice (which is very important) and lathers well also. I know, we've all heard bad things about lathering shampoos and what they do to your hair, so if that is something you are worried about (which I don't think you should be since this is made using gentle sulfates) you can use this every other day, or whatever kind of washing schedule you use now. But you could probably use this everyday without damaging your hair. After my luxurious feeling lather (what can I say, I like the lather lol), I rinsed and my hair felt very clean (insert thumbs up). 

I proceeded to use the Honey Treasures conditioner. It smelled just as nice as the shampoo (not surprisingly) and felt great going through my hair. I ran it through the length of my hair (trying to avoid the roots because then my hair ends up feeling greasy very, the next day) and really focusing on my ends. My ends are pretty bad...split and dry and thin. Once I had finished that it was time for another good rinse. At this point, I had finished, although it is suggested that for extra care you follow up with the mask treatment (not available to me) so I was done. 

I combed through my wet hair, which can sometimes be very difficult, but was very easy after using the conditioner. I let my hair air dry, like I always do since I have no patience for blow dryers haha! Once it had dried my hair felt very light and clean and slightly healthier. The true test for me is always my ends, so I felt them and they seemed not as dry (no extreme change though over the couple times I've used it). Overall my hair seemed to be light, clean and slightly softer than before.

I would rate this product an 8/10, because I'm not sure how much this product costs (if you know me, I'm a sucker for a deal) and I haven't seen significant results yet.

You should be able to find this product at any drugstore or mass retailer (if not yet, soon).
