Want It: Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Color in Coral Beat

Avon+Glazewear+Liquid+Lip+Color+in+Coral+Beat

I’m trying to recall, don’t interupt my flow here, if I ever tried Avon Glazewear. I think I have but maybe not?

Anyway the point is I really wants Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Color in the newest shade, Coral Beat!

Check it after the jump!

Avon says that Coral Beauty is the color I should be wearing this Summer and I couldn’t agree more. Loving all over this flattering shade of coral with a kiss of orange! Likey! Plus it’s $6 bucks (or $1.99 with two other select purchases), seriously can I really go wrong for that price? If it doesn’t work out I won’t feel nearly as guilty if I dished out $20 or more right?

Anyone likey?

Coppertone Oil Free SunScreen Lotion Review

Coppertone+Face+004

If I’m honest with myself I’ll admit that 30+ in an SPF is far too low. I’d rather sport 85 or more on my face but this hasn’t prevented me from recently falling in love with Coppertone Oil Free SunScreen Lotion SPF 30.

Click it for the review!

I randomly purchased Coppertone Oil Free SunScreen Lotion recently when trying to sort through inexpensive drugstore SPF’s to review here on Musings. I actually put it in my cart and tossed it out several times as I wasn’t interested in such a low SPF. However, it did finally make it’s way home with me and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it.

The formula is a nice dreamy, creamy, quick absorbing, moisturizing SPF. I probably wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with oily skin however if you have dry skin it’s a god sent. Oily skin chicas beware even though it sports “oil free” in the name it still manages to feel a tad greasy upon first application. After it absorbs my face feels dewy and moist but not greasy or oily. SPF tends to make my face look like a mirror however my dry skin seems to like this alot and it absorbs easily without leaving behind a hot mess.

With a $6 price tag and such a nice formula I find that Coppertone Oil Free SunScreen Lotion might make a fine Winter SPF. Wish this had a higher SPF because I can easily see it as being my go to for Summer protection. Good stuff.

What’s your favorite drugstore SPF?

Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths Review


Although Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths aren’t going to change the way you remove your makeup they will make it easier for the days you are feeling a tiny bit lazy!

Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths are a brand new addition to the expanded skincare collection from Soap & Glory that was released in the UK a few months ago. These new wipes are available in a pack of 25 for $6.99. Not sure I’m feeling the cheap factor here as you can probably get a cheaper brand of cleansing clothes or at the very least a bigger size for less or the same price. However, they won’t be Soap & Glory or sport the cute pink packaging I’m quite fond of teehee!

As with most cleansing wipes, Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths aren’t going to remove waterproof mascara or harder to remove makeup however they are nice for having around for days you’re feeling a bit lazy and just want to wipe it off quickly. They have a subtle floral scent that’s quite pretty but could prove a bit much for those sensitive to fragrance. The wipes are quite large and thick which makes it easy to use one for your entire face. They feel quite gentle on my skin and don’t leave behind a sticky residue. Supposedly you can cleanse, tone, and with a bit of pressure exfoliate your face. Well, cleanse and tone yes but not really much of exfoliator, at least not for my dry as hades skin.


Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths are a nice travel friendly makeup remover or good for those days you aren’t feeling the love for an entire skincare removal regime. Nice to have around for quickie clean ups but definitely won’t take the place of my other removal products!
