Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ recently launched in Japan so I decided to skip out on my normal Allie SPF and try this instead.

I don’t believe Shiseido has every released a gel sunscreen prior to this in the Anessa Collection. Don’t quote me but they have always had liquid sunscreens as I recall. From my understanding the gel line will be available for a limited time but again don’t quote me on that.

Let’s take a look!

Missha Hot Burning Body Gel

Burn baby burn with the new Missha Hot Burning Body Gel my dears. Hot Burning Body Gels are pretty damn common in Asia and most all brands make some variation of ‘em.

But they might just have something special on their hands here as the formula is positively delightful and quite silicone-free as well!

Pantene Pro V Ultimate Ten BB Creme for Hair Review

Pantene Pro V Ultimate Ten BB Creme for Hair

Pantene has created the first every BB Cream for Hair, seriously, really it’s true! Pantene Pro V Ultimate Ten BB Creme 10 in 1 Beauty Balm for Hair all in one wonder for smoothing, conditioning, hydrating, and styling hair.

I dunno how I feel about BB Cream for hair….I think it might take marketing a little too far however, I have noticed that the Korean market is doing much of the same lately and slapping “BB Cream” on everything so why not hair products right?

I was quite curious product in all honesty being a lover of BB Creams in general so why not try one for my hair?
