DHC Alice in Wonderland Suncut Q10 50+ Aqua Gel

As you know DHC Japan has teamed up with Disney and created a very cute Alice in Wonderland Collection! This DHC Alice in Wonderland Suncut Q10 50+ Aqua Gel is part of that collection.

I’m not a huge Suncut Q10 50+ Aqua Gel myself in all honesty but I couldn’t resist the Alice in Wonderland packaging!

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Review

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner 1

My Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner review is a long time coming as I’m already on my third bottle of this stuff and still have yet to feature it on Musings.

According to Etude House in provides not 1, not 2, not even 5 functions but it’s actually a 10 in 1 ultra pore solution! I feel like I need to beat on a drum and run in circles now or something!

Of course, it’s simply a toner but the promised 10 in 1 formulation sure does get me excited.

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water Review

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water

Maybelline Crean Express Miracle Water is exclusive to Japan but we do have a fair few of the Clean Express products here in the US in a similar formulation. A few years ago we had a rather big Cleansing Water crazy going on here in the US with major players like NARS and MAC creating their own varations of cleansing water but the trend died out rather quickly.

Cleansing water is definitely the lazy girl or guy’s guide to quickie makeup removal on the go. For a long time I was a mega fan of Mandom’s formula especially when I got home late and just didn’t want to sit down and do my massive nightly skincare regime. Cleansing waters are just so great for quickie makeup removal so you can get to bed super fast. Or even you’re one for double cleansing they are great for removing a majority of makeup and you can of course, follow up with another cleanser to remove the rest of the gunk and makeup they may have missed because lord knows most formulas don’t always get every single last bit of makeup from your face!

A few years ago Maybelline unleashed their Cleansing Express products on the world and one of the items in that release was the Maybelline Clean Express The Flash Clean Makeup Removing Lotion. It isn’t quite the same as this Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water but if you’re interested in trying it out, it is more readily available at drugstores versus waiting for airmail, online shopping, etc…

Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm5

Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm ($58) is probably one of my favorite foundation releases of Fall 2014!

Dr Jart did a little something different with their formula and I’m LIKING it A LOT!

Let’s take a look at the Dr Jart Bounce Beauty Balm and see what I’m excited about!
