Christmas Came Early! || CBB Secret Santa Gift!!

CBB Network

This year I participated in my first virtual Secret Santa with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Network. We were all asked to spend a minimum of $30 and create wishlists to give our Santa ideas. I love shopping for Christmas gifts so as soon as I got assigned to someone, I was already bookmarking items. My favourite way to shop for a Secret Santa gift is by buying specific items that are on their wishlist with the addition of an item I think they would love and enjoy as well. I was so happy to hear that Angela loved her gift and I couldn’t wait to receive mine. If you want to see what I received, I mean, the cover photo kind of gives it away but if you want to see my gift in action, check out the rest of this post!

First off, I want to say thank you to Dalia for the sweet card and gift. She even wrapped the gift herself which was so thoughtful!

She sent me Ru by Kim Thúy which I’m so excited to read. I’ve had this book on a list of books to buy for a long time now but have been avoiding to purchase as I have quite a few unread books at home. Who else is guilty of that? Luckily, it came at the perfect time because I just wrapped up a book I was reading for work.

She also sent me Caudalie’s Face Mask trio which includes a moisturizing mask, a detox mask and a peel. So far, I’ve tried the moisturizing and detox mask and LOVE both. They both have very distinct smells. I’m usually very sensitive to certain scents but these don’t bother me at all. However, I prefer the detox mask scent more. The detox mask smells citrus-y with a touch of tea tree oil (I suck at describing scents lol). The hydration mask smells like grape? Wine?

The Detox Mask is a light-weight clay mask. It dries quickly, feels tightening and washes off easier than other clay masks I’ve tried. The Hydration mask was thick and moisturizing. I was surprised at how matte it was. Other moisturizing/overnight masks I’ve tried often leave me very oily and tend to sit on my skin, whereas this, sunk into my skin quickly and really helped with the dry patches I get around my nostrils. Can’t wait to try the peel now!
