Holiday Gift Giving: Shoebox Project for Shelters and Farleyco

6 Nov

Hi beauties!

I joined a recent Canadian Beauty Bloggers Twitter Party with Shoebox Canada and Farelyco, and guess what? I won the prize pack (woo hoo!).

First, I’d love to tell you about the Shoebox Project for Shelters, a non-profit organization that collects gifts for local women in locations across the globe.

Here’s how it works: you fill up a shoebox with beauty products that help women feel special like skincare, makeup, or good quality soaps/shampoos, then drop it off at a local shelter. Your beauty-filled shoebox is then donated to a woman in your community.

Check out the easy steps here to turn an empty shoebox into a beautiful gift. If you don’t live in Canada, this project is also available in the U.S. and internationally.

Prize Pack Details

Here’s an overview of the products in the prize pack courtesy of Farleyco, who represents many brand names you can find at major chains and small independent drug stores across Canada.

7th Heaven

I received an assortment of 7th Heaven masques, the largest brand of beauty masques in the world. So far, I’ve tried the Green Tea Peel Off Face Masque (so much fun!) and can’t wait to test the Hot Chocolate Masque (yum!).

COLAB Dry Shampoo

I’m always excited to try out dry shampoo. This award-winning brand was created by a team of beauty insiders, including blogger Ruth Crilly (A Model Recommends).

  • Original fragrance Dry Shampoo has a bergamot and rose scent.
  • Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo + contains a volume boost formula.
EcoTools

If you prefer products with earth-friendly materials, EcoTools creates beauty products that minimize the negative impact on the environment.

  • Perfecting Blender Duo is designed with EcoFoam® Technology, which is made of 70% plant-based materials. I’m using more liquid foundation lately so I’m excited to try these.
  • Delicate EcoPouf is designed with super soft recycled netting.
Flexitol

I received two products from this brand specializing in skincare:

  • Heel Magic, which comes in an easy-to-use stick applicator, contains Shea Butter and Olive Oil (the formula is paraben free). Expect to see results in 3-4 days even on stubborn cracks.
  • Happy Little Bodies Eczema Relief Cream is a non-steroidal treatment option for kids with a formula that contains 5% Colloidal Oatmeal, Calendula Tincture, Peppermint Oil, and Aloe Vera.
Earth Kiss Natural Face Masks

I received an assortment of 100% natural masks energized with Himalayan salts (which are super popular right now), including a Pore Cleanse and  Exfoliate mud mask.

MesmorEyes

MesmorEyes Lashes has a first of its kind program that specifically tells you which false eyelashes suit your eye type. I need help with false eyelashes, so this kit is a good first step!

Real Techniques

Miracle Cleansing Sponge is a 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge with a precision tip for imperfections and a flat edge for contours around the eyes and nose.

Zoella Beauty

Beauty Bath Soak and Shower Cream is a ‘beauty in a bottle’ bath soak with soothing floral notes.

Thanks to everyone involved for this lovely prize! 💕💕💕
