Hello Kitty 2012 Year Of The Dragon Compact Mirror

Got a little dragon fever? Could be Skyrim in my case but blame it on the Year of the Dragon, 2012 if you haven’t indulged in that addiction quite yet.

The new Hello Kitty 2012 Year Of The Dragon Compact Mirror celebrates the New Year in style with a gold-toned mirror compact!

To celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the dragon, it comes in a special commemorative box. The Chinese characters for “Happy New Year” are subtly printed at the top of the mirror and there are two versions of the mirrors available one with 1x and one with 3x magnification.

Available now at Sephora and for $18.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.

Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.
