This giveaway is now closed. Entries are being tallied and a random winner will be selected shortly and alerted via e-mail. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and entries to win!

MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm 2

As you know MAC has introduced its BB Cream to the US market recently. If you aren’t up on the BB Cream trend at the moment please see my What’s a BB Cream? post and my BB Cream versus Tinted Moisturizer one. I hope both will help you through your adventures in BB Cream land.

Early next week I’ll be comparing the Asian and US releases of the new MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm as I already reviewed the Asian version. I doubt there is any difference in the formula but I am curious to see if there any major or minor differences.

For now here’s your chance to win your own tube of MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm!

Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask Review

Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask 6

Beauty Story Sheet Masks supposedly contain diamond particles…seriously, people, WTH does that even mean? Diamond particles. Oh stop now!

Diamond promises aside, it does contain a heap load of Royal Jelly Extract so I feel like Queen B when I wear it.

sheet mask

Royal Jelly is derived from the secretions of male worker bees! That’s right bish, gather my honey! Crack the whip! It’s made up of amino acids (among other things, secretions? please child, let’s hope that isn’t what I think it is) and a ton of vitamins and minerals. Some brands harvest it because it’s a great natural skin care ingredient but I just like it because it moisturizers skin all crazy like and improves the general appearance and texture of it! I won’t get into all its great benefits but needless to say Royal Jelly is a rocking ingredient to include in a sheet mask!

Let’s take a peek at Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Masks!
