Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream Review

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Cream 1

Today I close off my Sana Hadaomy Skincare Collection reviews with the most important product in the trio, the cream! I’ve already reviewed the mist and toner which should be used prior to the cream which I’ll tell you about today.

I’ve been using the three pieces as my AM skincare for the past few months and I have to say I really have enjoyed the run with it. I have no other skin products that need testing at the moment so I’ll continue on with this since it works out so well for me.

Let’s have a look!

Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash Review, Photos

Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash 3

Excuse me why I’ll rant at Biore for never releasing the cool stuff here in the US.

Biore WTH why can’t we have cool cleansers that are called Marshmallow Whip Face Wash? Not cool! We want these things too!

I happen to be a die hard fan of Kose Airy Whip, it was kinda my first introduction into the world of whippy, foamy, fluffy cleansers! I used to buy it by the case load and pimp it out on Musings and to my friends as an essential, must have quickie facial cleanser. Seriously, ask my friends, they’ll agree that they are tired hearing about Airy Whip.

Sorry, it’s just cool stuff.

Anything that looks like whipped cream in a can that can be used as a cleanser is the awesome to me. I’m easily excited about skincare.

That’s why Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash is so exciting, shhh, it’s actually taken the place of Airy Whip but DON’T mention that to Airy Whip as we’ve been friends for years and years, don’t wanna hurt its feelings eh? But seriously foaming plus a name with marshmallow in it?

Yes please!

Jump!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review, Photos

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil 1

Ok, let me it be know I have no issues with mineral oil but some folks do. It’s difficult finding a cleansing oil without mineral oil as one of the ingredients and the most commonly asked question I get about any cleansing oil I review is, “Does it contain mineral oil?”

Second most commonly asked question, “Any cheap cleansing oil recommendations that are easy to find in the US?” Although cleansing oil is a common part of the Asian beauty regime it’s not something that’s quite caught on in the US in my opinion. Hell, if it did, we’d all go to the drugstore and have our pick of any number of cleansing oils just like any good Asian woman can at their local drugstore in Japan, Korea, etc….it’s simply not the case in the US in my opinion. Some brands do have cleansing oil available however you probably didn’t even know they had one. MAC has one, surprised? I think we commonly associate cleansing oil with Shu Uemura and ouch expensive.

Want cheap?

Want readily available?

Want something to easily clean away makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara?

Want it without mineral oil?

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the ticket.

Made without mineral oil, allowing for a deep clean, and readily available for purchase plus an inexpensive price tag keeps this cleansing oil at the top of the awesome pile.

Scared of cleansing oil? Weird idea isn’t it? Taking oil and proceeding to rub it on your face…well it could prove a great idea for those of us with dry skin but even than it sounds a tad on the strange side…wouldn’t your face feel oily and greasy after use?

No way. Cleansing Oil rinses clean away and allows even the most stubborn, I’m sticking around until you die makeup to be removed easily!

Check it!

Steal It: Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder

Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder

I’m not a strong supporter of YesStyle’s obscene mark ups but I just wanted to share with the fact that they have Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder for $11. This isn’t retail by any means but I find this is rather inexpensive by USD standards.

It’s one of my HG, can’t live without it, never want to live without it products and I truly believe it’s an essential item for aging eyes since powder really makes my eyes look super old but this not only brightens but sets concealer for long wear, all damn day!

Loves it.

Just wanted to give you a heads up this because like I said, pretty decent price by USD standards and you get the added benefit of piece of mind sans E-bay mark ups and black market products.

Happy shopping!

P.S. Buyer beware, YesStyle SkinFood prices are obscene to say the least so don’t get to roped into purchasing anything without prior research.
