Tarte Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion Review & Swatches

Tarteguard

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.

Let’s take a peek!

They Changed The Texture of When Hope Is Not Enough but Did They Change The Smell?

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Balm

Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough Balm is a new to Philosophy’s Hope family. It actually sounds very promising as it’s formulated with peptides, antioxidants, omega 3, 6, and 9 as well as skin brighteners.

Totally pulling a Stefan here when I say “This place has it everything!” Problem? Jar packaging!

Oh and about that smell….

Mizon Returning Starfish Eye Cream Review

Mizon Returning Starfish Eye

Mizon Returning Starfish Eye Cream ($32) is one my favorite (and most expensive) Asian eye creams. You might have already read my review of Mizon’s Returning Starfish Cream and heck, you might have even tried the cream already as it’s an interesting and unique moisturizer.

The eye cream?

Just as unique and all kinds of hydrating!

Sephora Face Mask Review

Sephora Face Masks

The Sephora Face Mask Collection is a new eight formula permanent face sheet mask launch that arrived this Spring online and in stores for $6 each or grab up the Sephora Paper Mask Discovery Set which includes five masks for $24.

I happen to be a massive face mask fan girl! I love Asian Sheet Masks with a passion and use them two or three times a week. There are such a vast array of masks available in Korea and Japan plus they are very, very cheap.

It’s nice to see that the US market is slowly catching up to the sheet mask craze but still we are slow going and it’s not like you can head to your local drugstore and pick up a bunch of sheet masks as easily as you could if you were in a Korean drugstore.

Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist Review

Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist

I recently purchased Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist ($5) because you know I don’t have nearly ENOUGH facial mist in my life. Yeah, so if it was a toss up between facial mists and hand soaps I’d have to say I hoarded both like they are never going to be made again.

One of my skincare staples is facial mist! I love really hydrating mists to prep my skin for my other skincare. I don’t typically set with facial mists but I do use them to prep my skin so after a shower I’m misting away or in the evening after removing my makeup the first thing I do after a cleanse is mist.
