Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?

Holika Holika Hand Warmer Moisture Hand Cream Review

Holika Holika Hand Warmer Moisture Hand Cream 2

Holika Holika introduced its Hand Warmer Moisture Hand Cream over the holidays. The packaging and the name kinda threw me as I thought maybe it would literally warm hands up so I got a few of them to tuck into my sister’s stocking as she’s always pissing and moaning about cold hands and feet.

Sadly, it doesn’t actually heat up hands and proved to be just a basic hand cream!

Let’s take a look!

Tony Moly Mini Berry Lip Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

Tony Moly Mini Berry Lip Balm 2

Being an avid collector of Asian cosmetics I can honestly say that I probably have enough fruit shaped makeup products that should the zombie plague happen, I can depend on these products as my fresh produce.

Seriously, I’m going to start making fruit baskets for friends with this stuff.

Gawd, I can’t take the cuteness! Tony Moly Mini Berry Lip Balms are shaped like tiny little blueberries and cherries, see the appeal?

Squeal!
