If you know anything about Dr. Denese you know she creates some great skincare! That’s why the new Dr. Denese Omega-3 Eye Treatment with Cooling Wand is an exciting release.
This omega-3 rich eye treatment quite resembles Mally Perfect Prep Eye Cooling Gel System but I’m positive it is more effective.
Take a peek!
Having been a long time user and fan of Korean BB Creams I’ve very pleased they have finally entered the US market. Actually, technically, I’m both pleased and disappointed.
The formula has under gone some vast changes in the transition from the Eastern to Western market. It is understandable though on some levels. There is room for adjustment in the formula as well since our market isn’t as interested in the whitening abilities of skincare products as a dominate Asia market would be.
Unfortunately, one of the things that is unforgivable is that formulas introduced have morphed and become so far removed from the original intent of a BB Cream that really, the only thing we are seeing at this point is a BB that acts more as a tinted moisturizer more than anything else.
Needless to say they have originally started out as one product but ended up adjusting to suit many different needs. Formulas in Asia tend to cover a wide spectrum of skin concerns such as concealing, producing flawless skin, whitening, brightening, anti-aging, and more….
Versus a lighter, sheerer formula here in the US that promises very few of the things listed above.
Dr. Brandt Felxitone BB Cream attempts to replicate the traditional Asia BB Cream. I had some interesting results with it. Here are my thoughts!
Yup, eye cream addict here.
No shame in my game, I admit it.
I really should sit down and stick to a single eye cream but I’ve been changing, rearranging, and trying new things in the name of the blog! Psstt that’s always an excuse for a new purchase.
I happen to have called Dr. Denese’s HydroSheild Eye Serum my HG (holy grail) a number of times but I stopped using it about a year or two ago because I suspected it was causing Milia.
Might be a touch too rich for my eyes and I suspect Dr. Dense created it with the 50+ woman in mind.
I am ever so curious about her new HydroShield Eye Emulsion though.
Ok, so I admit, I Tivo QVC.
What? That’s not bad is it. Ok, maybe its a little bad but I’m betting alot of money my fellow beauty junkies do the same thing. I mean I have it all narrowed down to an intricate science where I am recording shows via “beauty” keywords and setting season passes for Mally Beauty, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, and Philosophy.
QVC dominates the Beauty “TV” world in my book and they bring not only great releases to the table at some pretty nifty deals but also pre-orders and pre-launches of products a month or more earlier than the actual release dates. Nothing better than being able to get my hands on the latest and greatest beauty bit several weeks earlier than its launch right?
Starting at today, April 16th, the QVC Beauty Bash kicks in! You’ll be treated to an entire DAY of beauty. Philosophy, Mally Beauty, Smashbox, Laura Geller, and many others will treat you to some super fabulous deals and some brand new beauty items.

The Muse gets so scared when she sees products that say “firming” on them. Oh please tell me I don’t need any firming action on my face yet! I’m only in my 30′s….I’m scared hold me. I swear the words firming, wrinkle, and age spots just terrify me.
Of course when I got my hands on Dr. Denese Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel I got all kinds of scare.
But have no fear, it’s so much more than a firming peel!
Check it after the review.
What is it?
It’s a creamy orange peel that’s meant to brighten and refresh your complexion. Phew nothing about firming actions yet, looks like I’m safe. It exfoliates to reveal smoother skin plus…here it comes…it firms and tones while improving elasticity. EEP!
In all seriousness I’m not yet ready to firm, tone, or improve my elasticity yet. So far my elasticity is snapping back like a rubber hand. But that doesn’t prevent me from enjoying this peel.
It’s actually meant for anyone with poor skin texture and uneven skin tone, certain dullness or anyone lacking radiance and glow or even dry, rough, tired skin. Some of this applies to me in a major way.
The general idea is you apply to a clean dry face and leave on for few minutes. Those with sensitive skin may notice a tingling or stinging so do a patch test prior to use. The formula is a rich, gel-like cream that has a bright, sunny orange scent. Once it’s on my face I don’t feel much but than again my skin is bulletproof you could probably throw acid it on it and I wouldn’t notice.
One of the main things I love about it is it resurfaces my entire facial area as I wear it. This basically means those patchy cheeks and flaky areas between my eyes gets eaten up and exfoliated by the mask.
After I’ve left it on for a few I rinse with lukewarm water. You’ll instantly noticed your face is flushed and looking considerably better than before you started. I use it two to three times a week. I haven’t really noticed a major change in my skin as of yet but I do see a difference right after use and a few hours after use but nothing long term yet. I generally like the idea of having great skin just for a few hours as it seems to make makeup application smoother and makes my skin looks more like it’s glowing. I’ve only used it for a week so I’ll continue on and hope for long term results.
It’s quite an interesting peel and fairly affordable at around $30. Overall, I’d purchase again after I ran out because I do like that it exfoliates at the very least without using scratchy crystals.
Definitely in my likey book! I’ll update you on my progress with it.
