HadaLabo Tamagohada Daily Face Wash Review

HadaLabo Tamagohada Daily Face Wash

It feels like New York kinda sorta skipped over Autumn this year and headed right for the chilly Wintery weather. It’s been a lot of rain with a nice bite of cold in the air (although today is a gorgeous Fall day).

This has caused my skin to go into havoc mode. I have flaky skin around the sides of my nose, between my brows, and a bit on my cheeks as well. My skin is feeling rather tight and dry to say the least and can’t get enough moisture. Never mind the dullness…!

HadaLabo Tamagohada Daily Face Wash is the perfect daily creamy cleansing wash that keeps my skin soft and smooth after each use.

Take a look!

I typically don’t like cream to powder products but I was interested to try this after seeing swatches online as the formula looks quite nice.

Here are some of my thoughts!

KATE Cover Concealer for Cover Review & Swatches

KATE Concealer for Cover

Japanese brand, KATE, introduced a brand concealer for Fall 2012 entitled (stupidly named) Cover Concealer for Cover. Yeah, I know, that name, WTH!?

This is a tiny potted concealer I was eager to get my hands on as I generally like many of KATE’s offerings however, after trying it, I have mixed thoughts on it.
