Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream US Launch

Looks like my Fall 2012 release predictions for the new Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream are wrong. I originally posted that we might see this Fall/Winter 2012 but Target.com proves me wrong.

Jane, a reader, pointed out to me today that it’s appearing online at Target but not yet in stock so I guess we’ll see it shortly in drugstores.

Interesting!

Review on the way as I have the UK version already.

SkinFood Pineapple Peeling Gel Review

I went through this phase where peeling gels were kinda my deal. However, if you have terribly dry skin they really aren’t a great pick for exfoliation.

Skinfood Pineapple Peeling Gel is a gentle way to exfoliate skin.

How’s it work?
