Garnier Color Shield Products Review

I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from  Influenster .

My package arrived in the mail and it came with the Garnier Color Shield Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave in Shine and Care.

 I love coloring my hair red but find it fades quickly. Also your hair gets very damaged from coloring it and can get  dull and dry.  
Garnier #ColorShield  products lock in color and help to resist fading.  This was a big plus for me! Also more shine and healthier looking hair

The scent of these products were amazing as I love Acai berry, the products enhanced my color and left my hair shiny and clean.  I have very thin hair but yet it always gets tangles in the neck area and I found using these products my hair was tangle free which was really nice.  I didn't wash my hair the next day to see how the products stood up and I was pleasantly amazed that my hair still looked fresh and shiny without any tangles.  My hair had no frizz as I use a blow dryer on my hair.

Here is a picture of my hair after using the products

These products locked in the color and I could see how it enhanced my hair color!

Garnier Colour Shield gets a rating of 5 Stars for

Performance, Shine, Strength, Resilience, Scent

If you haven't tried the Garnier Color Shield products yet I would encourage you to give them a try! I know you won't be disappointed.

The Good Food Box


The Good Food Box is a volunteer non-profit, produce buying cooperative to help everyone to include more fresh fruits and vegetables in their meals.
The low cost of the Good Food Box is made possible because of group buying. By pooling their money, Good Food Box participants can buy food wholesale and get better prices. Volunteer labour for sorting and packing keeps the prices down. The selection of produce in the box changes according to the season, quality, and affordability at the time. The Good Food Box buys direct from farmers when possible.
What We Do
The Good Food Box deliver boxes, the size of blue recycling boxes, of fresh fruit and vegetables to Host Sites each month.


During the first three business days of the month you order and pay for your box at the Host Site closest or most convenient to you also you can purchase it online and pay with a credit card or paypal. The boxes are packed and distributed on the third Wednesday and Thursday of each month to the Host Sites. If distribution day is on a holiday, the next day will be scheduled for distribution. The Host Site will then contact you to let you know that your box is ready. Please bring a bag or container to carry your food home in. Payments can be made by cash or cheque at your selected Host Site.


Large - $20 This is ideal for a family of 3 or 4
Small - $15 Ideal for 1 or 2 people

I started ordering the good food box and I love it. I always order the Large because for an extra $5 you get much more so it is the best deal in my opinion. I started ordering this last month and it really helps with cutting the cost on a low income.  It just makes sense to me to purchase one as I love my fruit and vegetables.  Here is a picture I took to show you what you can get in it.Saving money is great but you are also supporting your local farmers as well.
