Dollarama Review: Dog Deer Costume

Dollarama has a wide variety of pet stuff including some Christmas costumes! Teddy became a reindeer without breaking the bank. The only con is they only have one size but we managed to squeeze both parts through his giant head.

How does he look?

Dollarama Review: Insta Peel

I haven’t done a Dollarama Review in a while, but I thought this thing would be worthy of one. After all, it is described as the revolutionary concept in peeling!

I mean for $3 how could I resist right?  It promised to make my carrot peeling mess free.

Here is what it is like. Giant carrot to scale. It takes up a lot of room. I don’t think the handle part needed to be that thick. or long.

Anyways, I tested it on the carrot. It was dull. It was also hard to aim where you were peeling, so it took me a long time to actually peel the carrot. I found the carrot shavings also tend to jam the already shitty blade, so every once in a while I need to scrape it.

Sorry Insta Peel, you are not revolutionary.

Dollarama Reviews: Hair Chalk

I bought this hair chalk from Dollarama. It was a premium item at $3. I thought it would be fun to put some colour in my head for Atomic Lollipop last weekend.

This is me before I did anything to my hair.

There are 3 colours and are literally like chalk you put on your head. The instructions also suggest that you brush your hair afterwards.

It was barely noticeable, and this was after I put a lot on. Any more and it would have looked like I had a clunk of something in my head.

Here’s after I combed it through a little. As you can see it’s not very effective on black hair (unless you possibly use a shit ton).

Anyways, would not buy this again and don’t really recommend it unless you have blonde hair.. but then you might as well just use regular chalk.
