Summer feels like it’s around the corner today as we have a spurt of lovely warm weather today. I hope it’ll be as nice for the weekend as I’m away for it.
As the weather starts to warm up you’ll start worrying about lighter coverage, more sun protection, a light wearing moisturizer, etc…. This is where play creams come into my beauty world. My skin is dry in the Winter but tends to get a bit oily in the Summer so I like a light wearing moisturizer preferably one that has a decent SPF if possible.
If you shop the Asian beauty world you’ll come across quite a good deal of “play” creams that offer lighter moisturizing effects, plus SPF, and act as a base for your makeup.
Recently, a reader e-mailed me and asked had I tried the Tony Moly “ice cream” range and I had to sit and scratch my head for a second….what she actually meant was the Ice Queen Collection. Easy mistake considering the products are all packaged up like a scoop of your favorite ice cream and topping!
And yes, I have. I got these when I first saw them pop up on Sasa a while back ago, believe it was before the Holidays. Sasa still has them in stock by the way and close to retail price too!
As per her request I’ll be reviewing these for you and starting off today with the Tony Moly Ice Queen Multi Play Cream SPF 30, one of the nicer play creams I’ve tried from Korea by the way and not only for the cute packaging either!
I know I kinda sorta promised you and myself that I wouldn’t indulge in more lipglosses but I saw the Victoria’s Secret Love Me Wild Lipglosses and I had to have them.
Don’t hold it against me peeps?
I’ve had Etude House Cleansing Dream Cleansing Foam hanging out in my stash for a while. I purchased and reviewed the Etude House Cleansing Dream Cleansing Oil a while back ago as well.
Let’s take a look at the cleaning foam today!
I’m really loving on Benefit’s B.Right Radiant Skincare packaging. The products remind me of apothecary jars and bottles you’d find in an old time Pharmacy, one that served ice cream sundaes and had penny candies. They have a certain nostalgic whimsical design that makes me smile.
I’m been testing out some of the line recently and I’ll have a few reviews up shortly. Today I thought I’d start with the Benefit B.Right Refined Finish Facial Polish.
Let’s take a look!
I have a thing for cute beauty products, obviously right? Etude House introduced a range of hand creams and lip balms several months ago in a baby animal theme which instantly had me at that “awww OMG so cute!” stage.
I’m such a wimp for kawaii makeup.
There are four animals featured on the packaging in the form of a baby penguin, seal, panda, and dolphin. After hauling all four of them I went through the secondary stage, this is the stage after the “awww OMG so cute!” stage as reality sinks in and I sit and wonder why I need four tins of lip balm….and I remember oh yeah, because there cute.
It’s a sickness people.
In the end I ended up keeping two and gifting the others away! See? Sometimes I’m smart.
Here’s my thoughts!
