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…!

This is why I need to select a good cleansing wash because many dry my skin out even further.

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

CC Creams are the next generation BB Cream and I’m sure you’ll see a ton of it as we head into Winter 2012 and Spring 2013. “CC” stands for Conceal and Correct and offers the same benefits as a BB Cream but in a beefier formula.

Blast from the Beauty Past: The Lip Collection by Bourjois Paris

The Lip Collection by Bourjois Paris

I used to love doing a Ghosts from Christmas Past Collections on Musings. But my stash has grown so much that it proves impossible to remember what was from a Holiday Collection and what wasn’t. I’d love an intern to catalog my entire stash for me, now that, would be brilliant.

I was rotating my stash several weeks ago in preparation for Fall and also just to spruce it up to see what needed to be tossed, donated, etc…and I came across a REAL gem. The Lip Collection by Bourjois Paris!

Here’s one to try your next trip to Target, Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser ($8.49). This one is for normal to dry skin (particularly the dry skin folks out there) and is formulated as a gel which melts into a nourishing oil when water activates it.
