One less step for womenkind #GarnierSensitive

I have been have been wearing cosmetics since high school…

I have also tried numerous products to remove my makeup and clean my skin.

Having a Make-Up Artistry background, I am familiar with skincare and the use of some pretty resilient make-up. Waterproof mascara and some foundations require a little extra “elbow grease” to remove them. My bathroom counter is cluttered with cleansers, eye makeup remover and moisturizers, so being able to eliminate one step in my daily regime would be fantastic.

I just received Garnier’s Clean + for Sensitive Skin Makeup Removing Lotion Cleanser and I am very pleased with it’s performance. It easily removed my eye makeup, and left my skin feeling moisturized.

Garnier Clean+

This will definitely be my go-to the next time my kids get their faces painted at the next family-friendly event test we attend.

Garnier’s Clean + for Sensitive Skin removes stubborn makeup and calms sensitive skin. It also contains no alcohol, dyes or fragrances and is approved by the Canadian Dermatology Association.

Because disclaimers are important! Product has been provided by Garnier Canada, the opinions and language are my own, and in no way do they reflect Garnier Canada.

Nothing makes a girl feel prettier, than a little mini makeover. {Review & Giveaway} BeautyByKeeley #YMCCommunity

What woman doesn’t love a facial and playing with make-up?

I remember, as a tweenager, hanging out in the girls washroom with our teen mags and our makeup palettes trying out the looks that apparently suited our eye colours.
We usually ended up looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show.

Eventually, once we reached high school, this transitioned to the hot 90’s look.

I remember MANY girls who lined their lips with brown or black liner, what were we they thinking?!

Flash forward 25 years, and I’m so happy that I established a good skin care regime back in my late teens! And me going through a Make-Up Artistry course helped as well. I don’t look nearly as old as I could if I hadn’t cleansed and moisturized twice a day.
Pre-kids, I had WAY more time to give myself mini facials, tweeze my eyebrows, trim my “lady stache” and dig out those unsightly blackheads. Fortunately, I have a skin care specialist as one of my girlfriends!
Keeley Saunders is an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Canada.
Recently she invited me over for a facial and make-up application for her #50faces30days promotion.
Of course I showed up with a full face of make-up and dreaded not using my regular gear to chisel through my goalie mask.
First Keeley had me use the eye make-up remover, which easily removed my mascara without leaving me with raccoon eyes.

Then she had me use the 3-in-1 Cleanser, Toner and Exfoliator all in one. Using the super cool Skinvigorate brush, I scrub-a-dub dubbed away, followed by Microdermabrasion 2 Step Refine and Replenish. My face was left smooth and refreshed. I finished up with the Age a Fighting Moisturizer, because I will continue to fight my age until the day I die.
Once I had a fresh palette to work with, I summoned my inner Bob Ross and began to create my masterpiece.

Keeley had me apply the face primer with SPF 15, so that my newly applied gorgeousness wouldn’t slide off my face by the end of the day, liquid foundation, eye primer (to keep the eye shadow from slipping into my eyelid cleavage) mineral powder blush, mineral eye shadow, Ultimate mascara and Nourishine lip gloss.

I am a huge fan of trying new skin care products and playing around with different looks that can be created with cosmetics. It makes Mom’s Nights Out so much more fun, when you try out the dramatic look that you’ve been mastering for the last month.
Keeley has generously provided a complimentary facial treatment to one lucky Raincity Parent reader and you’ll get to invite up to 3 of your friends to
