Rohto Skin Aqua Moisture Gel SPF 27 Review: For the Lazy SPF Users

Rohto Skin Aqua Moisture Gel SPF 27 2

You may recognize the Rohto brand name due to the fact they make a wide range of eye drops. I’m pretty sure I’ve tortured myself more than once with their “refreshing” eye washes and drops. Do not like.

However, resentment aside for their toothpaste (I call them toothpaste eye drops because of the super minty fresh feelin’!) eye drops I do like their Skin Aqua SPF Collection.

I dub their Skin Aqua Moisture Gel the lazy SPF solution.

Face Q Cavier and Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Mask Review

Face Q Cavier and Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Mask 001

A reader recently mentioned that Kim Jae Wook was preparing for military service and I was aghast. He’s too young plus he’s at a real height in his career at the moment.

Well, it’s confirmed.

Face Q Jae

He is entering the army and I’m the only one that thinks he’s young. Girlfriday, over at DramaBeans, was thinking the very same thing about his age as I was. I guess we were both blinded because he’s actually nearing 30 years old! He’s 28 here in the US and 29 in Korea so really it’s about time for his service to begin.

Many Asian countries have mandatory military service with a time frame that varies. South Korea is normally near two years but I believe there was some discussion about reducing this.

Either way, away he goes! Joe Cheng and Rain should be also gearing up for service as their ages are looming near, Rain possibly sooner than Joe. Get me out a hanky!

Sniff!

I need to relax with a good face mask. Face Q Cavier and Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Mask to the rescue!

Review: Happy Birthday Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo and Conditioner, the Muse Loves You!

Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo and Conditioner 7

How far are you willing to go for beauty?

I’d dig a hole to China if it meant I could get my favorite beauty goodies or in this case that hole would lead straight to Japan and an abundant supply of my favorite shampoo, Shiseido Ma Cherie.

Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ Review, Swatches, Photos

Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ 11

Holika Holika is a newer brand that launched in Korea. The brand is starting to gain an online awareness now so you’ll see it pretty much popping up everywhere as it begins to go viral.

Part of its popularity could be due to the fact CN BLUE endorses the brand or the fact that it has a certain Harry Potter/Gothic witchy deal going on. Store employees are all dressed like witches and products all have a boil, boil, toil and trouble potion vibe going on.

I chose to believe everyone is flocking to the store because they really dig Jung Yong Hwa in manliner and they feel bad he didn’t get the guy errrr girl in You’re Beautiful. Let’s give Yong Hwa all our money because he was the odd man out in You’re Beautiful! Awwww! Poor Yong Hwa! Boy, you can put your dupetastic, Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara look-a-like mascara on my lashes any damn time you want!

See? Korean brands know what we women want! A cute Asian boy leaning in to apply our makeup that wears liner better than us! Yes Siree bring that on now!

The brand has a line of Petit BB Creams available in five formulas. I believe they dubbed them Petit due to the small tubes they come in. I really like the size because I find it hard getting through BB Creams since 1. I have over 30-40 of ‘em and 2. they are so pigmented a single tube can literally last you into the next millennium.
