the Balm Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream Review, Photos, Swatches

the Balm Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream 006

Why, oh, why did I discover the Balm’s new Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream at the end of Summer? I could have used you all Summer long to keep my skin hydrated with your lovely lightweight formula and to cool it off thanks to the refreshing burst of peppermint in the mix.

Damn.

Too late.

But we’ll be friends until the end right? Or at least until it gets cold out and I can’t use you anymore because my dry skin needs something heavier to keep it from acting all kinds of crazy.

Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream is the balm…it’s the balm dot com! Loves it.

Check it!

Borba Age Defying Super Creme SPF 100+ Review

Borba Age Defying Super Creme SPF 100+ 1

I ran into Walgreens several days ago and came across a Borba display that had some skincare options and supplements. I don’t think the items are new however they are new to me.

I’m not sure if it’s exclusive to Walgreens or if other drugstores will carry the collection but compared to other Borba skincare products they were priced at an affordable $17.99-$19.99.

I’ve personally never tried any of Borba’s skincare in the past and I think a combination of the cheaper price tag and the promise of a whooping SPF 100+ had me running to the cash register with my booty.

Today I’ll be taking a look at the Borba Age Defying Super Creme SPF 100+.

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
