Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Review

Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit Romantic Rose 003

Biore released their Resort Nose Strips in the Summer of 2010. Seriously, what’s better than sitting around with a nose strip on than one that’s like a tropical vacation! These scented nose strips whisked you away to a private paradise as they dug deep into your pores to remove those pesky blackheads.

Hmmm maybe it was a tropical paradise for your blackheads rather than for you.

Either way, aromatherapy in nose strips, can I get a hells yes?

This year, two new scented nose strips have arrived in Japan.

Take a look, they aren’t tropical island paradises but they do bring some fun fruity, floral notes to your nose strip world!

Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++ Now Available in the US

Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++

Dior’s BB Cream has been around for a while in Asia however it joins the US Diorsnow Collection this Spring here in the US.

This is an exciting release since I don’t think Dior mucked with the formula. What you get in the Eastern market looks about the same as you would here in the Western one.

This is a lightweight formula that not only brightens skin and promises a reduction of dark spots but also sports a whooping amount of SPF, SPF 50 to be exact.

The price is also a little friendlier here in the US at $50.

It’s available now at Dior counters as well as fine retailers such as Nordstrom.

Which BB Creams have you tried here in the US that you thought were great?

Do share!

Sleek MakeUp Lash Out Mascara

Sleek MakeUp Lash Out Mascara

British brand, Sleek Makeup, well known for their eyeshadow palettes, has introduced a brand new mascara called Lash Out.

With a pigmented black finish, Lash Out Mascara volumizes and lengthens with a spiral brush that promises to capture every lash.

It’s $10.49 and available now from SleekMakeup.com, Sleek ships worldwide.

Whatcha think?

I think this is the first time the brand has launched a mascara. It’s interesting as I’m always looking forward to a new shadow palette from them so it’s nice seeing them branch out into other cosmetics.
