Kanebo Kracie Naive Deep Cleansing Oil Orange Review

Hey chicklets!

I’m listening to all your requests, promise! Many asked for my fav picks on the cleansing oil scene. You asked for something inexpensive, something that worked, and something that was easy to find (as in you aren’t running around trying to locate it in other countries because it’s not sold in the US).

One of my personal favs that’s both cheap, easy to locate, and worth it’s weight in gold is Naive Deep Cleansing Oil, particularly the orange one!

The Muse’s Mail Bag: Bihada Ichizoku Cheek Blush Review and Swatches

mail bag

Peeping into the mail bag today I got a few requests and questions on the Bihada Ichizoku items I’ve been reviewing.

Kelly from Washington writes,

Dear Muse,

I really like your reviews on Bihada Ichizoku. My friend was telling me that cosmetics are also available with this range but I only see you reviewing the skincare. Is it true? Are there cosmetics?

If you heard about this can you do a review of these items too?

Thanks!
Kelly
