Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++ Review

SPF….

Such a chore isn’t it? But a necessary evil. If you aren’t SPF’ing yourself to death prior to heading out the door in the morning we can’t be friends anymore. SPF is essential at not only keeping your skin in good condition but also essential to your health.

But the moral of my ranting is that SPF is uncomfortable to wear. I have a rather intricate skincare regime and it seems like I use way too many products in the AM. Anti-aging serum, Vitamin C powder, SPF, Moisturizer, Toner, this, that, some of that, some of this….it’s too much!

Ah!

Plus to add insult to injury in most cases SPF is rather thick so it makes my face feel oily or greasy and even really good ones end up feeling a tad uncomfortable in the long run.

If you have all similar rants you NEED Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++!

Rosette Hello Kitty Collagen Wash Review

Rosette Hello Kitty Collagen Wash 1

Morning dears!

Sometimes I ask myself, “Do you really NEED another Japanese foaming facial cleanser?” and I proceed to remember why I don’t need another one. Could it be the dozens that already grace my bathroom closet? Yes, that would be it.

However, I can’t resist a tube of foaming face wash that has Hello Kitty’s face plastered on it.

Damn straight I’ll indulge in that!

Lunasol Star Shower Eyes Review and Swatches: Lunasol Star Shower Eyes Star River Review and Swatches

Hey chicklets!

I’m hittin’ up my blog roots today with a little Japanese makeup review. Been ages since I delved into the world of Japanese cosmetics hasn’t it? If you’ve been hanging with me for a while, you probably remember days of old when Musings was all about Japanese makeup. Things have changed considerably as I found that reader’s appreciated hearing about local brands, counter, drugstore, etc….so I’ve tried to diversified alot with Musings and cover various brands from abroad as well as cosmetics easily located within the US.
