Is it really Organic??

So recently i watched a great video -
which looked at cosmetic products that were labeled organic but really had lots of chemicals in them!! Did you know ,It is impossible to guarantee that a product labelled " organic' is truly organic because organic standards in Canada are voluntary. The province of Quebec is the only Canadian province having a mandatory system of accreditation.

But the good news is this is going to be phased out in the next 2 years a new Canada Organic logo will be permitted for use only on those  products certified as meeting the revised Canadian standard for organic production and that contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients.

So the only way to really know if your product is truly organic,is to read the labels or even call the company and ask and if you get no answer well then i bet it is not.

But i will show you some products that i do love that are truly organic:)

I have blogged about it before and want to mention again i love KIBIO
Which you can buy at Shoppers Drug Mart . 
They have an amazing line of skin care products and tell you exactly how much is organic and natural.
Radiance Moisturizing Cream-
Jojoba vegetal oil and shea butter: rehydrating*, softening and protective
Essential oils of bitter almond and sweet orange: soothe and provides a natural scent

So buyers BEWARE!!! Even a lot of mineral makeup out there is not pure minerals ,they have a lot of fillers and chemicals added in too!! SO READ LABELS :)

Intensify you eye color with new Eye Illuminators Mascara from L'oreal

So as you may know i adore mascara from L'oreal i have always come back to using it year after year because well it looks great and is the right price :) Today i want to review the new L'oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator .

It is a two step mascara ,first you use the black side ,applying 2 coats and getting right into the roots.Which looks like this-

Then you apply the colored end which depending on your eye color will change The second step is to applying the colored end just to the tips of the lashes to give them an extra sparkle. 
( Illuminating top coat intensifies eye color with light-reflecting pearls as its purpose is to bring out the color of your eyes).

I find it is very subtle but that is what makes it nice ,you do not look like you are wearing glitter .I bought the one for all eye colors which is just a gray sparkle and i also got the one for my eye color which is a copper sparkle. I have to admit i like them both and alternate with them depending on my mood.I do like the brushes and it went on very well.I would for sure recommend you give it a try for a nice change and give your eyes some pizzaz :)

Here is me wearing the one for blue eyes-

Have you tried any new mascaras lately,or will you give this one a try??

Scented nail polish??? Yes its new from Revlon!

Sooooooo i have been uber busy lately so have not had a chance to update as much,but i came across an interesting product today at Shoppers Drug Mart! Have you heard they now have scented nail polish ?? YES!! It is true ,it smells when it dries!! I tried out a few different colors to see if it really works and it does maybe for a day or two but seems to wear off the more you wash your hands.So it is a fun thing to try and at a great price too ! 
Have a lookie and see,i really liked the purple(grapey icey ) and the orange(orange smoothie),it really does smell yummy when dry!!:)

Is this something you would try out????
