BRTC Perfect Calming Cream Review

BRTC Perfect Calming Cream 2

About a year ago I had gotten a few small samples of BRTC Perfect Calming Cream after having a friend haul me a few of their BB Creams in Korea. I instantly fell in love with the cream so I recently indulged in the larger size as I went through all the tiny samples she had sent along with my order.

Here’s my review of this heavenly cream!

Benefit B.Right Triple Performing Facial Emulsion Review

I was quite excited to check out the new Benefit B.Right Triple Performing Facial Emulsion simply because we don’t have many emulsions available to us in the US market. Emulsions are quite common amongst Asian skincare but I honestly don’t see many here in the US.

The only difference between a regular moisturizer and an emulsion would be the lighter formula that you get with an emulsion compared to the heavier one of a regular moisturizer. In most cases emulsions have gel-like formulas and most lack SPF. Benefit’s version contains an SPF 15 as well as a lighter formula.

Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme Review

Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme 1

Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme is my new lightweight Spring/Summer must have moisturizer! This morning, no joke, we got snow but no worries Spring is on the way and soon after Summer.

As the weather starts to warm up I have to start shedding my rich moisturizers and replace them with something lightweight, my pick of the moment, Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme!

Love!

And sensitive skin types will love it too!

Tony Moly Ice Queen Multi Play Cream SPF 30 Review

Tony Moly Ice Queen Multi Play Cream SPF 30 1

Summer feels like it’s around the corner today as we have a spurt of lovely warm weather today. I hope it’ll be as nice for the weekend as I’m away for it.

As the weather starts to warm up you’ll start worrying about lighter coverage, more sun protection, a light wearing moisturizer, etc…. This is where play creams come into my beauty world. My skin is dry in the Winter but tends to get a bit oily in the Summer so I like a light wearing moisturizer preferably one that has a decent SPF if possible.

If you shop the Asian beauty world you’ll come across quite a good deal of “play” creams that offer lighter moisturizing effects, plus SPF, and act as a base for your makeup.

Recently, a reader e-mailed me and asked had I tried the Tony Moly “ice cream” range and I had to sit and scratch my head for a second….what she actually meant was the Ice Queen Collection. Easy mistake considering the products are all packaged up like a scoop of your favorite ice cream and topping!

And yes, I have. I got these when I first saw them pop up on Sasa a while back ago, believe it was before the Holidays. Sasa still has them in stock by the way and close to retail price too!

As per her request I’ll be reviewing these for you and starting off today with the Tony Moly Ice Queen Multi Play Cream SPF 30, one of the nicer play creams I’ve tried from Korea by the way and not only for the cute packaging either!

Jump!

Is Vitacreme B12 the most overhyped product in Japan? Damn Straight It Is!

Vitacreme B12 1

A famous Japanese actress made Vitacreme B12 one of the most hyped up skincare products I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. The claims of renewed skin cells, diminishing age lines and existing wrinkles, and just generally making skin look amazing are just a few of the urban legends that surround this moisturizer or at least in my experience they are urban legends.

I’ve been using the cream on and off for a few years and recently had an e-mail from a reader asking me if I had ever tried it.

Damn straight I have and no it doesn’t jump rope and chew gum at the same time.

Here’s the deal according to the Muse!
