Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm Review & Swatches

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is a BB Cream that’s formulated for adolescent skin types. Supposedly it controls excess oil that “teenage” skin creates and also includes plant extracts which are ideal for sensitive or troubled skin users.

I am obviously not the demographic that Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is marketing to but I purchased it when it originally launched because it was getting raves for its lighter texture.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil Review

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil is a new hand and nail cream that launched last Winter during the Holidays. As it is getting cooler now I thought Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil should come out of its drawer and onto my desk to keep my hands pleasantly scented and moisturized.

Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream Review & Swatches

Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream

Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream ($15.99) recently became available in two shade selections just in time for Fall 2013. The CC Cream rage is just starting to pick up here in the US and I’m quite excited to test out many of these offerings.

For me CC Cream is an obviously great pick as I have fairly ok skin that doesn’t need a ton of coverage. I rely on BB Creams to brighten up duller skin and keep my skin hydrated through the day but they do run quite pigmented. CC Cream is the next greatest solution as they typically run lighter and have more perfecting abilities but don’t necessarily have the coverage of a BB Cream.

In my case I’m looking for a CC Cream to brighten, keep my skin moistened, and even my skin tone with a formula that’s lightweight and breathable.

I think Yes to Grapefruit Correct & Repair CC Cream gets some of this down but it could be a little disappointing in some aspects.

Take a look!
