Joe Fresh Beauty Brushes

There’s no better place to get a quick shopping fix then drugstore. I surveyed The Style Spy team (and myself of course!) to see what products they’re loving…

My newest drugstore find is the line of makeup brushes from Joe Fresh Beauty. I really needed a new small angle brush and didn’t want to spend lots, so I opted for the Joe Fresh Beauty line – they’re made with real animal hair and the brushes range from $8-$14 CAD. Super affordable. I’m also loving the Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Razors. They have shave gel bars – when you wet the razor, the bars lather up – so you don’t need shave gel, it’s built in. So convenient.

The only thing I’ve bought to get me through the Christmas season is a new lipstick. I’m in love with Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Cha Cha Cherry.” With the perfect shade of red – who needs a new dress? 8.99 CAD
Available at London Drugs

Biore’s Purify Daily Scrub. It’s a facial cleansing scrub that can be used every day but I like to alternate it with my other cream cleanser and exfoliate about 2-3 times a week. I like it because it’s not as harsh as say St. Ives Apricot Scrub, and the micro beads are spherical (as said on the website) so they’re gentler. I also like it’s fresh, fruity smell. It has pomegranate in it! And overall, it works really well to slough off dead skill cells and keep my skin looking soft, smooth and glowing.

My drugstore favorites are L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in blackest black. For about $10 CAD, this mascara has worked the best for me to boost the volume on my wimpy lashes. For skin, I like Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment to zap any blemishes that catch me off guard. To keep my hair soft and luminous in the drier winter months, I love Neutrogena Replenishing Conditioner twice a week to restore moisture and shine.

  1. The Joe Fresh brushes sound like a really good find! I’ve been using Eco Tools brushes which are available at London Drugs and Shoppers Drug Mart. Synthetic but incredibly dense and soft bristles, bamboo handles, recycled aluminum–they seem luxe but are actually really affordable and are eco-friendly to boot.

  2. Instead of the Joe Fresh brush, you should check out the costco holiday brushes. 20 bucks gets you 8 regular sized brushes, and four travel sized ones, two make up bags, and eyelash curlers. Check youtube for reviews. Well worth it!

  3. Good to know about the Eco Tools Lisa! and yeah, I’ve looked at the Joe Fresh make up but will definitely be going back to take a closer look at their brushes! I need new brushes haha
