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!

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!

Caudalie Vine Body Butter Review

Caudalie Vine Body Butter 2

The hills are alive with the smell of Caudalie Vine Body Butter! Awwww breath deep, Namaste bitches ha had to steal Naomi’s line from 90210 for this one.

I got some Caudalie Vine Body Butter in the mail last week but just recently ripped into the box yesterday and I was in heaven. It was the perfect, relaxing experience after a super stressful day. This moisturizer is so incredibly aromatic! It gives off such a wonderfully soothing, relaxing scent, never mind about what it does for my dry skin!

MAC Complete Comfort Cream Review

MAC Complete Comfort Cream 001

Gather round ye old Prescriptives fans and enjoy an ode to Comfort Cream. Fans of Prescriptives cried bloody murder when the brand suddenly shut shop and took all their favorites products away.

I used to love their LE items but I wasn’t as die hard a fan as some of you are to this day. Some of you have proclaimed the joys of the perfect foundations and concealers from the brand and sobbed your heart out when it was said and done.

A little good news to lighten your heart. MAC brings back Prescriptives Comfort Cream in a big old jar plus a way cheaper price tag.

Sensitive types rejoice!
