CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Kara Vita Canada Clinical Skincare Products Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012



If you’re inter­ested in find­ing out more about the best and health­i­est skin care prod­ucts in the world then look no fur­ther! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts is located in Canada, and is one of the fastest grow­ing com­pa­nies in the skin care indus­try! Their Prod­ucts are made with phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal grade, botan­i­cal ingredients.

Many of us, and women in par­tic­u­lar, put an exten­sive array of lotions and prod­ucts on our skin on a daily basis as we all know. These all range from cleans­ing prod­ucts to per­sonal hygiene prod­ucts to mois­tur­iz­ers. A lot of these other com­pa­nies use ani­mals as guinea pigs, and test their prod­ucts on them. Kara Vita is a cruelty-free com­pany that does not test its prod­ucts on ani­mals, thank goodness!






My skin is very dry and always requires hydra­tion. My skin is also very sen­si­tive, and I have to be care­ful as to what I put on my face espe­cially. Hav­ing sen­si­tive skin makes me extremely cau­tious of try­ing cer­tain prod­ucts so I am always glad to come across prod­ucts that are clin­i­cally tested.

Kara Vita Canada sent me 4 extremely impres­sive prod­ucts that they carry for review, and let me tell you — I am beyond impressed with the prod­ucts that I received!! The box con­tained the fol­low­ing prod­ucts: SPF 29 which is their full-spectrum, rub-proof, sweat-proof sun­screen, SPF 30 which is their rub-proof, sweat-proof, water-proof, broad-spectrum sun­screen, their Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner, and addi­tion­ally their PBH Exfo­li­at­ing Facial Masque!






As many of you already know, I am for­ever trav­el­ling with my hubby to our favorite sunny and hot des­ti­na­tions. I was super excited to have been able to review two bot­tles of their sun­screen: SPF 29 Lotion that pro­tects from sun­burn giv­ing Broad Spec­trum UVA/UVB Pro­tec­tion. The other is also Sun­screen but it is SPF 30 and water­proof! Per­fect for some­one like me who seems to always be in the sun dur­ing all sea­sons! I tried the water­proof SPF 30 this past week­end at our cot­tage and it is won­der­ful! It pro­tected my skin while exposed to 30 degrees cel­cius weather! It was per­fect since it’s water­proof as we were all in the water a lot try­ing to keep as cool as pos­si­ble! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts pen­e­trate deep into your skin and do not leave that both­er­some sticky feel­ing of residue that so many other sun­screens seem to leave on top of your skin!!






The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque is a win­ning trea­ment that is made to hydrate, soothe, exfo­li­ate, and so much more! This prod­uct makes me feel as though I have just treated myself to a very elab­o­rate facial at my favorite spa!

I’m all for relax­ation in a hot, steamy bath, slather­ing my face in some­thing that feels rich and unc­tu­ous and thor­oughly deca­dent. The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque did just that for me! My skin felt so soft and smooth after rins­ing it off, and I can hardly wait to use this again!! This mask gave me instant results, vis­i­ble dif­fer­ence, imme­di­ate improve­ment. This mask cleanses, puri­fies, renews and resur­faces, and that all added together equals glow­ing, smooth skin.






Lastly I had the excit­ing oppor­tu­nity of being able to try out the Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner. I was real leary and skep­ti­cal before try­ing this prod­uct as I have tried self-tanning prod­ucts in the past that left me highly dis­ap­pointed and also left me with noth­ing but orange coloured skin that looked hor­rific!! This sun­less tan­ner gives you a grad­ual glow with­out hav­ing to sit out­side for hours on end to achieve that golden tan that most desire.

While a tan can look healthy and gor­geous, not every­one wants to spend their time bak­ing in the sun or vis­it­ing a salon. The sun’s harm­ful UV rays can dam­age your skin as well as cause skin can­cer and salons are not only expen­sive but the UV rays are still harm­ful. With a self tan­ner you can ensure you have a gor­geous tan with­out tak­ing any of the risks from expo­sure to harm­ful rays!!

The Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner glided on smoothly and evenly and did not leave me with that blotchy look at all! By choos­ing this self tan­ning lotion, you can get the look you want in just a few hours — the healthy way! Happy sun­less tan­ning my friends! This is the best self tan­ning lotion that I have hon­estly ever used! No streak­ing or smudg­ing, just a per­fect even tan that makes one look like they’ve spent an entire sum­mer on the beach!!






Kara Vita Canada prod­ucts totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions, and def­i­nitely gets a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Mineral Makeup by Monavé Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Ever hear of Mon­avé Min­eral Makeup? Nei­ther did I unbe­liev­ably until recently. I wish I’d have found Mon­avé Min­eral Makeup ear­lier though! Espe­cially after hav­ing the plea­sure of review­ing their awe­some products!

Let me intro­duce you all to Mon­avé!

Where does the name “Mon­ave” come from?
Mon­ave stands for “Mod­ern”, “Nat­ural”, and “Versatile”

About Mon­avé, a blurb from their website:

“Mon­ave started as a lit­tle seed…a dream to make makeup by  hand,   with sim­ple ingre­di­ents. The seed also had the expec­ta­tion that the prod­ucts had to be high-quality, high-performance. I grew up work­ing in health food stores, and much of the nat­ural makeup wasn’t very good. I didn’t want Mon­ave to be just another so-so nat­ural makeup brand. As my lit­tle tree grew, so did my dream. It started to extend into the realm of devel­op­ing and nur­tur­ing other women’s abil­ity and knowl­edge to cre­ate and sell their own makeup line. Some say that cre­ates com­pe­ti­tion, but truly, the root of the tree lies in what is given away, not what is held tight.”

Mon­avé sells a wide vari­ety of both min­eral cos­met­ics as well as skin care prod­ucts! The prod­ucts that I got to review were EXCELLENT!! I was sent to review their famous hot-selling Unscented Inten­sive Emol­lient Base Facial Mois­tur­izer, one of their Mir­a­cle Peel Cloths, and a Oat­meal Honey Break­fast Bar! You can find an exten­sive cos­metic and skin­care line in all types of fab­u­lous colours and shades. From liq­uid and pow­der foun­da­tion to eye­shadow to cleansers and mois­tur­iz­ers, Mon­ave is cer­tainly a rep­utable brand name that you can trust for all of your cos­metic and skin care needs! Mon­ave even sells hair care products!!

Shop­ping at Mon­avé is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side of their web­site, and their prices are truly unbeatable!

Choose from:

New Shades
Eyes and Brows

Facial Cleansers
Facial Ton­ers

I am overly impressed with Mon­avé, and am extremely happy to have had the oppor­tu­nity to review their fan­tas­tic prod­ucts prior to pur­chas­ing. Once my Mon­ave prod­ucts run out, I will defi­nately be restocking!
