Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream Review & Swatches

Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care Refresh Cream 001

I don’t technically have allergies but for some reason or another I can’t stop sneezing this year and no, it isn’t a cold. My nose is raw, flaky, dry, and just generally gross. And it’s terribly sore too! Ouch!

Puffs Tissues just aren’t doing the job at this point so I whipped up my little tube of Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream in the hopes it would sooth my sore, red nose.

Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Set Review and Swatches

Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Set 1

I was vaguely curious about the new Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Limited Edition Set released for Summer 2012 in Japan.

Lavshuca favors these little sets lately and hasn’t really updated with a major release in a while. I haven’t been following the brand lately since they release so many repetitive shades just in a new stylish way. It’s easy enough to get excited about a new design and packaging but sometimes I have to remind myself that the shades aren’t unique at all.

The Pure Blossoming Eyes Set is an example of repetitive shades however it did contain Clear Stay Eye Base which intrigued me so I ended up heading in for a purchase.

SkinFood Pineapple Peeling Gel Review

SkinFood Pineapple Peeling Gel 2

I went through this phase where peeling gels were kinda my deal. However, if you have terribly dry skin they really aren’t a great pick for exfoliation.

However, if you’re sensitive, oily, or combo they are a gentle way to exfoliate skin without stripping it. On the upside, they are also easy enough to use daily which makes for a great pick for drier skin which tends to go dry if you’re using an exfoliator that’s gritter or “scrubbier” for lack of a better word.

Skinfood Pineapple Peeling Gel is a gentle way to exfoliate skin.

How’s it work?
