Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid Review

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid1

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid ($39) is getting a hard launch in Korea at the moment as apparently the product launched to the US market almost exactly as the same time that it did in Korea (rare!). I keep seeing all these videos, photos, etc…on Dr. Jart Korea’s Facebook page and it kinda makes you instantly want to purchase this stuff.

After testing out for a several weeks now I can say this has become and will stay apart of my daily skincare staples. If you have dry skin, you NEED it.

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser Review

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

It’s true Hada Labo is available in the US now and Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser is one of the first products I tried from the brand!

Hada Labo is known for its famous Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion in Japan and its collection of skincare injected with three kinds of moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid that not only hydrates skin but helps it retain moisture! Hada Labo Tokyo is an extension of the Hada Labo line that is available here in the US now and exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

In 2011 Singapore started to get the Hada Labo Skincare Collection so I was surprised it reached our shores so quickly or even at all for that matter. However, this is new packaging so it could easily be overlooked. Japan markets it as a “single drop can lock up an ocean” meaning it can retain moisture easily. Super Hyaluronic Acid is supposedly able to retain 12 liters of water. According to marketing a single bottle of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid is sold every four seconds in Japan. It’s understandable why as Super Hyaluronic Acid has been a staple part of my skin regime for a while now and it is truly a miraculous product.

Let’s take a look at the cleanser!

Tony Moly Real Persimmon Juice Cleansing Gel Review

Tony Moly Real Persimmon Juice Cleansing Gel

Allegedly Tony Moly Real Persimmon Juice Cleansing Gel contains real fruit juice…hmmmm…I dunno about that but I am obsessed with fruit shaped skincare items (thank you Korea, thank you Japan! You’ve converted me to the joys of owning as many lip balms, cleansers, and moisturizers shaped like strawberries, lemons, and peaches as I possibly can!) so this hit my beauty radar recently.

Did I like it?

Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick 1

You might recall I recently reviewed the Lavshuca Candy Bon Bon Lipstick for you which I didn’t really love. The lipstick is available in three shade types and I was hopeful that the shiny type would a formula I enjoyed since I found the regular color type wasn’t exactly to my liking.

Did I like Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick?
