Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist Review, Photos

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist 2

Gather round kids.

Let me tell you, I can’t begin to list the number of collagen washes and various ranges of skincare that feature collagen in Asia. The amount is astounding. Boggles my little mind.

Collagen is quite the popular commodity in Asia. Perhaps this is why all Asian woman look incredibly young and gorgeous well into their golden years.

As for me I like the way a good collagen wash feels on my face. Feels all slippery and hydrating! Loves! I don’t really think the US embraces the entire collagen thing as much as Asia does. Sure we have skincare that includes it but Asia goes steps further with toners, lotions, washes, and more.

What’s it do?

It’s supposed to help skin retain moisture as well as increasing it and improving the skin while decreasing wrinkles. I’ve used collagen products for a while but I can’t really say if they working to decrease wrinkles since I haven’t reached that stage on my face however in combination with hyaluronic acid I can noticeably see how much more hydrated my skin feels and how it retains better levels of moisture.

Regardless this might be a bit boring and I’m not a chemist but it was a good lead in to my review of the new-ish (new-ish since it released two months or so ago) Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist which supposedly boasts 1000 MG of Collagen.

Let’s have a look!

Sephora Lip Clutch

Sephora Lip Clutch 5

Dear Sephora,

Just a quick thanks. There’s something so fabulous about pulling a huge pair of lips out of my purse. I get vibes of Sweet Transvestite from Transexual Transylvania when I do.

Only you could do that for me.

Loves!

Loving on the new Sephora Lip Clutches! I dunno, it’s just such a fun little makeup bag, something about those big, fat lips. It’s available in a sequin style too, you know, for when you wanna bring that bling.

Big girls don’t cry…they don’t cry-ya-ya….they don’t cry. Isn’t that cry-ya-ya the perfect high note for the shower? Not that I sing in the shower. No way, not me.

I do full Broadway style shows in my shower, yeah, well, you’re never seeing that. Admission 1 only.

Speaking of big girls that don’t cry, that happens to be the name of the new Hard Candy Mascara, well, not really, replace girls with curls.

Check it chicks!

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush launches in January-February, can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned. It’s called Happy Booster because it promises to lift your spirits. Just what I always wanted, a blush to make me happy! The formula has some sort of aromatherapy, color therapy, and texture therapy to stimulate your senses into a happy, joyous place. My happy place is inside a Sephora with a cart full of makeup, maybe Physicians Formula can whisk me away to that special spot.

Arctic rose extract mimics the effects of endorphins where as Euphoryl, rich in Omega-3, is a known anti-depressant. Plus a blend of violet floral notes are included to invigorate and refresh you into a great mood.

If that doesn’t work you can always simply stare at the cute heart shaped design and proceed to smile at how great this blush is. Seriously hearts? Loves it!

The compact with be available in four shades:

  • Translucent
  • Beige
  • Light Bronzer
  • Bronzer

Eva Chen recently tweeted an image of a few of the compacts which you can see here.

What do you think of a blush that promises to put you in a bright, happy mood?

Yay?

Nay?

Share it!

Can’t wait for February?   Check out the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blushes to tide you over!
