Excuse me why I’ll rant at Biore for never releasing the cool stuff here in the US.
Biore WTH why can’t we have cool cleansers that are called Marshmallow Whip Face Wash? Not cool! We want these things too!
I happen to be a die hard fan of Kose Airy Whip, it was kinda my first introduction into the world of whippy, foamy, fluffy cleansers! I used to buy it by the case load and pimp it out on Musings and to my friends as an essential, must have quickie facial cleanser. Seriously, ask my friends, they’ll agree that they are tired hearing about Airy Whip.
Sorry, it’s just cool stuff.
Anything that looks like whipped cream in a can that can be used as a cleanser is the awesome to me. I’m easily excited about skincare.
That’s why Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash is so exciting, shhh, it’s actually taken the place of Airy Whip but DON’T mention that to Airy Whip as we’ve been friends for years and years, don’t wanna hurt its feelings eh? But seriously foaming plus a name with marshmallow in it?
I guess I’m a little weird but I follow the Kao Group very closely in Japan since I prefer their Biore releases over the ones that can be found in the US.
A recently Japanese release of new Biore Moisture Lotion intrigued me and I asked a friend to pick me some up. Shipping was a bit yak so I ended up telling her to skip it and hauled them from Adam at AdamBeauty (thanks Adam, love your shipping rates).
“Lotion” isn’t actually the term we’d use to describe what actually is toner. However, most Asian countries refer to toner as lotion so not to be confused here the Biore Moisture Lotion is, indeed, a toner.
Jump ahead for a peek!
A year or two ago Biore introduced Mandarin Blossom scented nose strips. Obviously the idea never took flight in the US. Shrug, guess we aren’t so inclined to have scented nose strips…?
I happen to be inclined which is why I snatched up some of the Biore Resort Pore Pack Nose Strips. I like scented products, sue me. While I’m sitting around waiting for plaster to dry up on my nose, it’s always pleasant to close my eyes and pretend I’m on a tropical island.
Which one of those things so do not go together right? Oh well! I dig the scent!
Such a chore isn’t it? But a necessary evil. If you aren’t SPF’ing yourself to death prior to heading out the door in the morning we can’t be friends anymore. SPF is essential at not only keeping your skin in good condition but also essential to your health.
But the moral of my ranting is that SPF is uncomfortable to wear. I have a rather intricate skincare regime and it seems like I use way too many products in the AM. Anti-aging serum, Vitamin C powder, SPF, Moisturizer, Toner, this, that, some of that, some of this….it’s too much!
Plus to add insult to injury in most cases SPF is rather thick so it makes my face feel oily or greasy and even really good ones end up feeling a tad uncomfortable in the long run.
If you have all similar rants you NEED Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++!
