I find the sudden flow of dark spot correctors on the market recently very interesting. Clinique started the fade up last year or so and this year, particularly this season, we’ve seen various treatments from not only higher end brands but also drugstore ones as well.
I personally go into these purchases with the hope of two things. One, brighter skin and two, I have some darkness around my lower jawline that I’d like to lighten.
Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector & Radiance Activator promises results in as little as four weeks. I’ve been using it for a bit longer that so I thought I’d finally settle in for a review.
Take a look!
Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer is a new concealer that promises to conceal and depuff. Is it me or does every single new concealer that comes out promise to depuff under eyes?
Maybe they read my blog and realize I need a little depuffing action. Honestly, they NEVER work though. They might conceal the puff but not treat it.
Anyway, I avoided this particular concealer for a while since it’s a squeeze tube with a brush application. No likey the packaging. I knew it would prove messy and I was right but I decided to give it a whirl anyway as that “wake up” bit had me….anything that wakes my eyes up or promises to ends up capturing my attention easily.
Etude House Aloha Ice Sherbert Primer is part of Korean Brand, Etude House’s Summer Collection. It’s actually a traditional release for Etude House as they’ve done this type of primer before however with the Aloha Collection they went and downsized the size of the bottle which stinks as this is a very interesting primer that I enjoy using.
If you remember the Aqua Sherbet Collection (CLICK) you’ll remember this being a far bigger size at a far nicer price tag but I guess we can’t have it all and just should be thankful it’s back!
As you know Clean & Clear has three brand new cleansers out at the moment which they have dubbed Fruit Infusions. I reviewed one already for you which revitalizes dull skin with Pomegranate.
Today, I’ll be reviewing the Clean & Clear Fruit Infusions Hydrating Cleanser with Pineapple that’s meant for drier skin. Perfect for me as my skin is quite dry.
Let’s take a look!
I’m so pissy about True Blood this season.
First off, can it be sex time now for Sookie and Eric? Jesus, every time they are about to kiss or get it on something interrupts the action. STOP teasing me!
Secondly, Robin Quivers completely ruined True Blood for me. I was listening to Howard Stern a week or two ago and he was discussing the series and saying how much he loves it and Robin buts in about everything that is wrong with it this season. Suddenly, my fan girl-dom got crushed and I realized she was right and I was blinded by the fandom for a minute not realizing all the things really wrong with the series this season.
She was saying how there are WAY too many story lines and she’s right.
- Jason and the Panthers and the whole gross Ghost Daddy thing! Ew!
- Do we really need Werewolves, Panthers, and Shapeshifters?
- Witches, Wicca, Etc…
- Fairies, short lived in the beginning but still apart of the show.
- Eric’s memory loss.
- Pam’s rotting OMG PAM!
- Bill the King.
- Evil Baby.
- Sam covering up the ‘rents death.
There are so MUCH going on….I got a headache from all the storylines….do we really need to have an evil baby? That was really the final straw for me.
But aside from that you know I still love me the show.
Way too much going on or is just right for you?
At least I got me some Tarte for True Blood Natural Cheek Stain but someone has to remind the kids at Tarte this is True Blood not Edward Cullen. What’s the dealio with all the shimmers?
