MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion Review & Swatches

MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion

MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion ($44) is a new lotion that recently launched in the MAC Charged Water Collection. Timecheck Lotion apparently utilizes the Charged Water technology and to blur lines and wrinkles while shrinking pores and providing long term moisture.

Honestly, it’s just a super great moisturizer worth checking out but don’t expect miracles.


The Best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens

I wanted to compile a rather small list of the best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens that I’ve personally used and loved for many a fine year. I’ve used a lot of Japanese sunscreens over the years but three featured in this post are ones I come to back to again and again and again because I love how well they perform, how great they look and feel under makeup, and how fabulous the formula is.

Unfortunately, the US market hasn’t quite caught up to the Japanese one when it comes to creating lightweight, easy to absorb SPF formulas. I truly believe the Japanese excel at this which is one of the reason I purchase sunscreen products from Japan. They also happen to be affordable picks as well!

Clinique Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask Review & Swatches

Clinique Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask

Clinique Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask ($36) gets added to the Even Better Brightening Skincare Collection family this Spring with a formula that promises to hydrate and ease dullness so that skin looks smoother, feels softer, and has a more brighter, luminous finish!

I’m ALL ABOUT facial masks. Particularly sheet facial masks which I use two or three times a week! Face masks are such a great way to give duller skin a pick me up during the week. It’s just nice to come home on Monday, throw on a face mask because your face is looking all tired and dull, and sitting around watching Game of Thrones while it does all the hard work at revitalizing your tired skin.

Plus when you wake up Tuesday morning you look like you spent the day at a spa!

I’ve been using Clinique Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask for a few weeks, here are my thoughts!


Tarte Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion Review & Swatches


Tarte Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 ($32) launched recently with the Tarte Summer 2015 Collection in two sizes (they have a smaller 0.4 oz for $12 should you want a purse friendly version).

Tarteguard is an appealing pick for those who want a non-chemical sunscreen to help protect skin! It’s the first time Tarte has launched an SPF product of any kind so that also makes it an exciting product.
