Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Mist Review

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisturizing Lotion Mist

You probably remember my love of Sana’s Hadanomy Collection from last year. This year, Sana has introduced a new selection of these hydrating skincare products with a new formula.

Placenta extract is supposedly huge in Japan at the moment. No great surprise as unusual ingredients including snail slime and bird’s nest are typical trendings in Asia.

I’m unsure exactly what sort of placenta is involved in the making of the Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Collection. The placenta is marine derived which according to a few sites is actually from the Hokkaido Salmon. Kinda sorta skeptical how much placenta actually goes into the makings of products like this though!

Either way Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisturizing Lotion Mist quickly made it onto my must buy list.

Take a look!

L’Oreal Revitalift Repair 10 BB Cream was released in the UK recently so I decided to jump in and see what I thought.

Yup, you read the title of this post right. L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Magnetic Coral. Are you “oooo’ing and ahhh’ing” yet?

This shadow is part of the L’Oreal Cannes Collection that was inspired by the bright lights of the Cannes Film Festival.

For someone who has such a love/hate relationship with L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow you’d think I’d avoid purchasing so many but I couldn’t resist Magnetic Coral.

Come on, I so needed this one!
