Pond’s Cleansing Oil Review

Pond's Cleansing Oil

Pond’s Cleansing Oil is a Japan exclusive (and available in a few other select Asian countries) and supposedly contains three plant oils that make up the base for a hydrating cleansing oil experience.

I always find it interesting that a basic product like Cleansing Oil is made so readily available from brands like Ponds and even Maybelline yet the US market never actually sees these products.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick 1

You might recall I recently reviewed the Lavshuca Candy Bon Bon Lipstick for you which I didn’t really love. The lipstick is available in three shade types and I was hopeful that the shiny type would a formula I enjoyed since I found the regular color type wasn’t exactly to my liking.

Did I like Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick?

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist Review

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist 2

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist is actually a reader request review as a few folks expressed interest in learning more about the Korean brand, Shara Shara.

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist acts as a makeup fix mist or as a facial mist and obviously, as you can see, it has some rather cute packaging which is why it has garnered some attention from all of you recently.

Take a look!

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review & Swatches

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser got a release in Asia earlier this year and I suspect by Spring 2014 you’ll see it here in the US. The entire “baby” theme from Maybelline has grown here in the US thanks to the cult following the Baby Lips Lip Balm has attained so believe me should Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser be released in the US chances are it’ll be a smashing success.

And the formula lives up to that…!

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil Review

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil

Miracle indeed! I’m loving the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil! This one you’ve got to try. I think cleansing oils are so misconceived as people assume they’ll make skin greasy or oily. Prior to trying a cleansing oil several years ago I had the same notion but please don’t be put off by such silliness. Cleansing Oils are wonderful and helpful aids to remove your makeup quickly and easily.

The Maybelline Clean Express Collection launched here in the US several months ago and it includes an eye makeup remover, cleansing wipes, and even a facial makeup remover but unfortunately the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil is exclusive to Asia. Oh woe is me! Thankfully it is easy enough to locate across a wide variety of online shops but I’m hopeful for Spring 2014 that Maybelline might consider launching it here in the US as sadly our market is lacking a budget variety of cleansing oils!

Take a look!
