Five on Friday - October 27, 2017 + Giveaway Open!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week - ours has been busy and a little tiring but good! 

ONE
Have you guys heard of Monat before? I hadn't heard of it until a couple of weeks ago. A few girls in our mom group have been told it helped with post-partum hair loss (which I am currently experiencing in full swing right now!)

A Calgary rep sent me a couple of samples to try out! I received the Hydration System which includes the Revive Shampoo ($45.00 CAN) and Revitalize Conditioner ($61.00 CAN) - both meant to "increase hair density, strength and manageability". Also the Replenish Masque ($65.00 CAN) which is meant to help "increase hair brilliance, strength and vitality". Then, a sample of the Rejuvenique Oil ($129.00 CAN) which is meant to "nourish and energize the scalp with 11+ unique molecular ingredients that are so pure and versatile that it can be used in multiple ways to improve skin and hair". 

I used these samples twice and they were pretty good - they made my hair super soft and shiny. I was hoping to see a bigger difference on my hair falling out than I noticed using this; but, I did only get a chance to try this twice. Overall, it was good; but, holy moly is it ever expensive! Yikes! Maybe a little too steep for me as it did make my hair feel and look good, I didn't quite get the results I was expecting. If you are interested, contact your local Monat rep or you can go through Melanie

I think I say this all the time; but seriously, where has the time gone! This week (on the 23rd) Elliott turned 6 months old!!! And, the day after he turned 6 months we saw that his first tooth had FINALLY cut through - we have been paying for this tooth for a good week and a half/two weeks! It's so hard to believe that everything is flying by so quickly! I'm glad other than he teething, that he is a very gentle natured baby!

The October In8Beauty subscription was a little later than usual this month; but, here it is! I won a year subscription to In8Beauty via an Instagram giveaway! You can check out my past reviews of the subscription here

This box is $18 a month + free shipping anywhere in Canada and comes with 5 different sheet masks! The October subscription included:
  • SNP Gentle Girl Mask Pack "Bad Boy" ~ $2.00 US - $10.00 CAN each. Okay, how hilarious is this mask?! I love it! Also, it's a cellulose mask which is a very thin gel-type material and I'm looking forward to trying this! 
  • It's Skin Pore Sheet Mask ~ $22.97 CAN for 6. This should be good - It's Skin is a pretty well known k-beauty brand so hopefully this is good!
  • Etude House Moistfull Collagen Mask Sheet ~ $2.60 US. Again, I like Etude House products - I have tried a few products from the Moistfull Collagen line, but not the sheep mask so I'm happy to try it out! 
  • A'Pieu Icing Sweet Bar Sheet Mask - Melon ~ $3.00 CAN. How stinkin cute is this mask?! It has me dreaming of Summer and it's so cute! Very excited to try this one out! 
  • Laneige Water Pocket Sheet Mask Sparkling Water (Brightening) ~ $8.00 CAN. Oooh, I recently bought a different type of this mask from Sephora! My experience with Laneige has generally been pretty good and I love brightening masks! 
So mask subscriptions to me, have always been more about the curation, as opposed to value (because really, most sheet masks aren't crazy expensive). This one comes out being a bit more than the cost and I am excited for the October subscription because I have not tried any of these masks!

I don't know if you guys have noticed on my Instagram or not, but Elliott is always rocking some adorable custom bibs (because he neeeeds them)! And I love them - help preserve our outfits while keeping him looking adorable! We always get them from Little Bird Apparel because they are fantastic quality! 

So, I recently got a few for the upcoming holiday seasons! These 2 Christmas bibs are adorable and I can't wait for the Halloween one to be worn too!
