Camping in Waterton

I just got back from Camping in Waterton Lakes National Park. It’s about as far South as you can go in Alberta. From our home in Edmonton it took about 5-6 hours to drive there.

Because I wanted to bring our bicycles with us, we took my boyfriend’s truck instead of my car. He doesn’t do well at staying awake during long trips and because it was my idea to go there, I was in charge of most of the driving. It was my first time driving the truck and it went fairly well. But I must say I much rather drive my car. There was one or two scary moments, one being where I cut off an 18-wheeler. But nothing major.

The first two days of the trip were windy and rainy. There were two or three deer that came and visited our campsite each day we were there. There were lots of warnings saying not to get too close because they can attack, but they seemed pretty tame. We also saw three bears during our stay in the park, thankfully never too close. I was actually hoping to see more but it was still pretty neat.

We got out and did some hiking despite the rain. On the third day it was sunny so we brought out the bikes, but for some reason about 5 minutes into the ride I felt sick and had to stop. All in all, it was a pretty fun trip. But I don’t think we will go again because it’s a long drive and we didn’t find as much to do as we were hoping.

L’Oreal Paris Hydra-Total 5 Routine

I received these three products for free thanks to influenster.com. Before starting this system but skin was very dry and flaky. But I have to say, these really worked for me. I have sensitive skin so I’m always nervous about trying something new. In the past I’ve had products that made my skin even more dry. There have been products that caused my eczema to flare up making it look like I’ve been crying. But the Hydra-Total 5 system has been great.

You start by applying the cleanser. Using a cotton ball, you dab the product on your skin. You don’t rub or use water which I found a little bit strange. You apply the toner next using the same method. I don’t really like using the cotton ball because it leaves little pieces of cotton on my face. And you end up going through a lot of cotton balls over time (4 per day). But combined with the moisturizer, it really did improve my skin.

I was skeptical of the moisturizer at first because you only apply it once per day and it’s supposed to provide 24 hour moisture. With previous products I was creaming my face at least two to three times per day. But this actually works. I noticed a difference in my skin almost right away. My skin has been smooth and soft the entire time I’ve been using it. I would definitely recommended this product, especially if you have really dry skin.
