Kose Clearturn Deep Moist Essence in Cotton Review

I’m a huge sheet mask freak, I overly use and abuse them. When my skin needs a little break from sheet masks, I’m rushing around and need a quick pick up, or I just want to concentrate on specific dry areas of my face I reach for Kose Clearturn Deep Moist Essence in Cotton.

These incredibly useful little cotton pads are saturated with essence and inject just the right amount of hydration into skin.

Loves ’em!

Skin Food Gingko Green BB Cream Review & Swatches

I recently reviewed Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream for you so I thought today I’d drag out the Skin Food Gingko Green BB Cream for a little swatch and review.

Since the two formulas are fairly similiar I do suggest choosing either one or the other but not both. That’s just my opinion though, you can of course indulge in both if you like but I find they are along the same formulas. I did want to review this anyway though since I enjoy using Shade 2 in the Aloe Sun version and didn’t have Shade 1 to swatch for you however in the Gingko Green formula I had indulged in Shade 1 so this is a good excuse to see the difference between the two if you refer back to my original review.

Let’s have a look!

Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream Review & Swatches

I don’t technically have allergies but for some reason or another I can’t stop sneezing this year and no, it isn’t a cold. My nose is raw, flaky, dry, and just generally gross. And it’s terribly sore too! Ouch!

Puffs Tissues just aren’t doing the job at this point so I whipped up my little tube of Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream in the hopes it would sooth my sore, red nose.

Soap & Glory Love at First Blush Review & Swatches

I wanna say it really was Love at First Blush when it comes to Soap & Glory’s new Multi-Shade Shimmer Powder and Blush. But ado, it didn’t work for me. And what a terrible shame because it’s really quite pretty.

I’ve been reviewing Soap & Glory’s Cosmetics the last few days because I was kinda hopeful that they might pop up this Summer at Sephora finally. It’s been a few months since the original launch in the UK so I do wonder if at some point we’ll finally see them here. I’m dying to try the lipsticks but not quite ready to commit without seeing them in person.

Let’s take a peek at Soap & Glory Love at First Blush and see if you like it more than I did.

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

Although expensive and on the sheer side, I have to admit my all time favorite BB Cream is Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++.

It’s not only successfully perfects and creates beautifully flawless skin but it’s a foolproof BB Cream that whitens, brightens, and offers a high level of SPF.

This is what BB Cream should be about.
