Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water 1

I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.

Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.

Jump!

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup Review, Swatches, Photos

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi Benefit Skin Care Makeup BB Cream 1

BB Creams 2.0, as I like to refer them, are on the scene for Spring. We saw a bit of the BB Cream trend hit the market several months ago here in the US but now that Spring is upcoming we are seeing more and more brands releasing their version of the popular Korean foundation product.

Clueless about BB Creams? Do check out my posts here and here to get you up to speed on what exactly a BB Cream is, what it does, and how it differs from a tinted moisturizer, etc..

So far, BB Creams in the US aren’t quite up to the speed of Korean ones in my opinion particularly in terms of coverage as they seem to lean more towards being a tinted moisturizer here in the US. How they got translated to such a formula is beyond me but that be the case in my experience thus far. I think I like Clinique’s version best to date from the US releases which seemed to offer the most coverage and the most natural.

As you know Too Faced recently introduced their own BB Cream to the scene with their Spring 2012 Collection and I immediately went about getting my hands on one.

Here’s my thoughts!

Estee Lauder DayWear Anti-Oxidant BB Creme SPF 35

Estee Lauder DayWear Anti Oxidant BB Creme SPF 35

I’ve reviewed Estee Lauder Cyber White Extra Intensive BB Cream in a prior post. This was introduced in Japan about a year or so ago. We won’t be getting the Cyber White version but Estee Lauder is releasing a BB Cream.

Gasp.

Excitement.

Available in two shades this lightweight BB Cream promises moisture, protection (SPF 35), and an antioxidant rich formula that controls excess oil.

It’s $38 and is available now at Nordstrom.
