Soap & Glory Skincare Collection Now at Boots

The Muse is an official member of the Anglophile support group, actually she’s the president. I’m quite British (even though in my next life I plan on being Asian) so of course I love all good things Brit-related.

Being all British-like I have a special fondness for the Soap & Glory Collection available at Boots so of course I’m all excited about the release of the Soap & Glory Skincare line up!

Soap & Glory has already established itself in the bath and body world with it’s quirky collection of fun, fabulous scrubs, body washes, lotions, and potions. Soap & Glory has even breached some of the cosmetic world with interesting little products deemed with funky names like “mother pucker” (gotta love that one right?). Now Soap & Glory branches out and pushes the line to add a skincare collection to it’s fantastic collection!

Count me intrigued!

I imagine I’ll be much more British if I start using Soap & Glory Skincare dontcha think?

Jump ahead to read more!

Although we are privy to Soap & Glory in the states courtesy of our friends at Target, don’t expect to see Soap & Glory Skincare pop up in store anytime soon. One can hope it’ll arrive on our shores soon but the Muse suspects it’ll be months before it pops up around here!

The good news, if you happen to be British (Lucky you!), you can pop over to Boots and start spending your hard earned cash on the entire line. Soap & Glory is typical buy two get one free and this sale is extended to some of the skincare line up so that’s always a nice little extra when purchasing!

Soap & Glory Glow Job Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion
is an everyday moisturizier with bronzeburst beads built in. What the hell are Bronzeburst beads? Whoa sounds awesome! Maybe that means it acts as a tinted moisturizer for skin? I wants to try this!


Soap & Glory Dr Spot Invisible Spot Fighting Gel will get your face back into the game with clog clearing salicylic and lactic acids!


Soap & Glory Clean Mary Cleansing Milk is a creamy cleanser for whisking away makeup!


Soap & Glory Catch a Wrinkle in Time Age Avoiding Day Moisturizer will erase all those pesky little lines and make you look fabulous again!

Soap & Glory A Change of Face Skincare Starter Kit has a little bit of this and a little bit of that so you can test the waters before diving into the entire line!



Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub of All Self-Activating Facial Smoother Exfoliator
will refine all those pesky little pores!


Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub of All Self-Activating Facial Smoother Exfoliator will scrub it all away and polish skin to perfection!


Soap & Glory Supereyes, Supereyes Moisturising Eye Gel contains a kick of caffeine to depuff eyes while reducing fine lines.


Grab some Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths when you want it all off in a hurry!



Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Super Rejuvenating Face Serum
will rejuvenate that tired face and make it glow!


Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lipcare & Plumping Kit has it all to plump that pout up and bring sexy back!


As you can see the line up is quite extensive which really pleases me to no end as the economy is under such distress lately that variety in stores is disappearing quickly so it’s nice to see that Soap & Glory has taken the effort to extend it’s line and introduce something new for us all to enjoy!

I’ll be picking up a few pieces from the line myself so I’ll have a review up shortly about them. The exchange rate is currently quite good on sterling and prices are ranging from $6-$17 USD with the gift set topping at around $28 USD. As you can sterling is converting considerably better and the prices aren’t much different (or even cheaper in some cases) from what you’d pay here in the US for the Soap & Glory line but of course airmail costs factor in as well.

As I mentioned Soap & Glory Skincare isn’t currently available yet stateside but hopefully we’ll see it soon! For now if you’d like the collection visit your local Boots or www.boots.com if you’re a UK residence. If you happen to live outside the UK, as the Muse does, you’ll have to find a friendly Brit to do your purchasing for you!

Any Brits try this collection yet?

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes

Meet Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes, their first ever mascara!

Jelly+Pong+Pong+Fairy+Lashes

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes is a waterproof mascara designed to make lashes longer, thicker, and curvier while giving them a light, fluffy, natural feeling! Hmmmm Majolica Majorca Gorgeous Wings may have competition!

This is formulated with cotton seed extract which restructures eyelashes while hydrating them and allowing flexibility. I have no idea what that means but it sounds like it’s really important!

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes is available now for $18.50 USD or 15 from jellypongpong.com

Expect the good word from the Muse soonish!

Want it?

Bourjois Paris So Delicate Lip Creme Lipstick

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+3

A few of the Bourjois Paris International portals have been updated including the Japanese one with a brand new Lip Creme entitled So Delicate.

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+2

Bourjois Paris So Delicate will be available in six shades and is a gentle cream formula that glides onto lips like a lipstick leaving behind a matte pigmented finish for supposedly eight hours of wear.

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+1

Bourjois Paris So Delicate is available now in Japan, Russia, the Nederlands, and France. It should arrive shortly in the UK I’m sure.

Currently the price is set at 2,000 yen, I suspect it’ll be slightly cheaper in the UK but not by much.

It looks quite interesting and it’s something I definitely want to try.

What do you think?

Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula Review

As per my original post about how I was cleaning up my washroom and coming across all sorts of cleansers, creams, potions, and lotions from various Asian brands.

Today I’ll be reviewing Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula. Did I just hear a yay for whitening? The Muse is all about whitening agents although a majority of them don’t work so well but hey it’s worth a try!

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+1

Does Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula really whiten?

We’ll see…jump ahead to hear the word!

Kose Softymo Powder Wash is a typical powder wash which comes in a fine powder formula that you add water to in order to develop a sudsy wash for whisking away dirt, oil, and other nasties from your face. It’s one of my favorite powder washes mainly because it’s dead cheap at around $3-$6 USD so really who can’t love that?

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+2

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+3

I also happen to love it because it’s particularly good at washing away makeup (not eye makeup obviously) without drying out my skin. It contains Aloe Vera which could account for why my skin feels quite nice and moist after use.

Supposedly it clears away dead skin cells while preventing dull skin and offering a “whiten”, “renewed” skin. Sorry, have to disappoint here, but I didn’t experience much in the way of renewal to be honest or whitening of any kind.

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+4

Honestly, it’s a great, inexpensive budget powder wash that works great at getting my face clean without investing a ton of cash plus no tightness or dryness after use but that’s about it. Don’t expect bells and whistles as there aren’t any here.

The one plus side of the whitening formula is it doesn’t retain the strange sour milk smell that a majority of Softymo Powder Washes are legendary for. This is an upside for me as I really get a tiny bit turned off by that stench of the other powder washes even though it goes away almost instantly.

All in all if you can find it cheap it’s well worth picking up especially if you like powder washes!

Majorca Majolica Girly Erotica

Majolica Majorca Girly Erotica is up and active on the MJ website!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+6

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+10

I LOVE the new story! The goth element plus the little spider made me giddy! I think it’s one of the simpler stories they have done on the site as there is nothing to “find” and everything is right there to click on, open, and view.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+8

Nice!

I also noticed they now have a great option as soon as the first page loads which allows you to click a link and this opens the entire general catalog of items available. Great feature.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+5

Love the goth element, love the spider, but the collection is meh at best! Pretty disappointed about the lack of items available but I’ll survive.

GWP? Cutes! Love me some spiders!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+3

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus is the brand new mascara releasing for Spring which I will pick up for sure.

Also available are two new Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Glosses and finally Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover Face Powder.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+7

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+2

Spidey nails!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+9

So you can obviously why I’m lacking excitement. I’ll be snatching up the mascara and I’m debating on the powder as I have several powders from MJ already and I’ll def skip the Honey Plump Glosses as I have at least six to get through already. Very disappointed at the lack of palettes or lack of virtually anything for the eyes aside from the mascara.

It’s really a bare minimal collection and I’m a tiny bit shocked they didn’t go further with it.

Economy do you think?

Hmmmm…the Muse is sad. I need a hug!

If you’re interested in reading the story you can check back to see if the Singapore site updates as that will be in English. At the moment the I am Gorgeous promo is still live so you’ll have to see in a few weeks if it changes.
