My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Neostrata SkinCare Review

Sunday, 30 November 2014

Last month I was lucky enough to attend the Neostrata event at World Fashion Week in Toronto read more here and they were generous enough to gift me a range of skincare products tailored to my skin specifically. 

The Micellar Cleanser is a gentle cleanser that doesn't disrupt the skins moisture barrier, it removes face and eye makeup with the smallest effort (seriously- one swipe with a cotton round and you're good to go!) It retails for $21.00 

The Glycolic Renewal cream has 5% Glycolic Acid which is a small amount, to effectively exfoliate dead skin cells away without being harsh on the rest of the face, it encourages renewal of skin cells. I find that it does keep my skin soft. This retails for $39.00 

The Aqua Youth Filling Anti-Wrinkle Cream is my second favourite item, firstly the colour is actually this blue colour, which is cool, but it is really moisturizing, I find the mornings where I use this my skin is baby-bottom soft all day. This retails for $34.00

Moisture Infusion 24HR Hydrating Serum, this stuff packs a punch, a couple pea size pumps does the entire face, I find that this stuff, even on it's own really hydrates, and not one of those I can feel it 20 minutes later feelings, I find that my face still feels soft hours after applying this. I really do enjoy it, and it's light enough that you can wear it year round, but works hard enough that you don't really notice it. This retails for $37.75

AquaYouth Filling Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream this is formulated the same as the face cream, it's really makes the eye area notably softer, I like this guy, you need the smallest amount to do both eyes and it makes the area feel softer. This retails for $34.00

Overall I enjoy the line, the price is a little too out there for me currently, being a student I don't have a lot of disposable income to throw around on high end facial cleansers and such. My favourite item from the gifts they gave me is the Micellar Cleanser- I had never used something like this before, and I like it, it's perfect for travelling because you don't need to rinse it off and the tiniest amount is enough to get everything off your face. I can't get over what the cotton round looks like after I use this, this is truly what I would spend the money on.

That Micellar Cleanser sounds fabulous! Interesting how you don't have to wash it off either!
