Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub 1

Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!

I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.

L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask Review

L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask

Need a little moisture in your life? L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask is on the case.

The biggest factor in aging is dry skin so you wanna keep your skin as moist as possible particularly those with drier skin. Inject as much moisture into dry skin as you possibly can to avoid skin looking dull, lackluster, and old. Toners, serums, mists, moisturizers…layer it all on. Find the best products that work well together and use them daily to nourish skin and keep it at its healthiest.

Unlike the toner I recently reviewed for you, I’m finding the new L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask quite a nice little addition to my skincare regime to add a nice heaping dose of moisture to my skin.

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 was released in Japan this Spring and recently we got got the launch of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil–Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++ here in the US.

Interesting that the formulas appear quite similar but offer different levels of protection.

I got mine from Japan however, I swatched the version we have available here in the states and I’ll say both have great formulas that seem pretty much identical outside the fact we have an SPF 42 and Japan offers the SPF 50 option. The version here in the US is more of a milky liquid or what I refer to as a traditional SPF formula versus the creamier version of the Japanese release.

Let’s take a look!

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Lotion Review

Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Lotion

As you know from my prior posts I’ve been sneaking in some reviews of the new Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Collection this week. I’ve already reviewed the mist and decided to break out the Aqua Placenta Lotion.

I’ve been using the lotion for the past two months or so? But I actually have to put it away for Winter at this point because it’s TOO moisturizing…!

Take a look!

Tony Moly Ice Queen Crispy Tropical Pack Review

Tony Moly Ice Queen Crispy Tropical Pack

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Tony Moly Ice Queen! I couldn’t resist, I had throw a stupid rhythm in there somewhere.

Korean brand, Tony Moly created these little Ice Queen Face Packs so that we’d all fall over and squeal in joy. Come on, how can you resist a facial mask packed into a little ice cream sundae packaging? Oh em gee!

However, like most of the Ice Queen Collection the cuteness stops at the packaging because what’s inside isn’t anything to rave too hard about.
