Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Review

Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit Romantic Rose 003

Biore released their Resort Nose Strips in the Summer of 2010. Seriously, what’s better than sitting around with a nose strip on than one that’s like a tropical vacation! These scented nose strips whisked you away to a private paradise as they dug deep into your pores to remove those pesky blackheads.

Hmmm maybe it was a tropical paradise for your blackheads rather than for you.

Either way, aromatherapy in nose strips, can I get a hells yes?

This year, two new scented nose strips have arrived in Japan.

Take a look, they aren’t tropical island paradises but they do bring some fun fruity, floral notes to your nose strip world!

E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser

E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser

Wow so cutting age, E.L.F. has a washing powder.

Seriously.

If you’re not in the know on your Asian beauty you might not know that washing powders are fairly common in various parts of Japan, Korea, etc….

What is it?

Sounds odd right? It’s simply a powder in a bottle of some sort that you shake out (like salt or sugar) into the palm of your hand and you add a little water to it to. Once you add the water it’ll lather up and you can clean your face with it. I’ve literally tried hundreds of washing powders most of which have whitening or brightening promises. I don’t particularly love washing powders as I find they are messy to work with. As here you are jugging a wet face and hands, struggling to get a bottle open to pour a powder into your hands, etc….etc….I also don’t think many of them deliver on their promises and in a few cases they end up making my skin very tight and dry after use.

I do find it completely novel that E.L.F. is one of the very first washing powders I’ve seen in the US market.

Take a look!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil 1

Not sure why I haven’t tried NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils up until now but they just passed by my beauty radar for some reason. The introduction of new shades intrigued me plus NYX is on sale at Ulta so it proved a perfect excuse to snatch some of these chubby little pencils up.

Take a peek!
