Do you love Lush Ruby Red Slippers? That spicy exotic scent of carnations….mmm I’ll never understand how a girl like me who adores toothache inducing sweet scents could love RSS so much.
But I do!
If you’re a lover of the scent too you probably hate when it disappears or doesn’t show up during the Holidays. But no worries Retro Lush is the solution!
Potion Lotion smells just like Ruby Red Slippers and comes in the perfect scented body lotion that allows the scent to linger on and on and on all day and basically puts you in a peaceful comatose with thoughts of running through a field of carnations in your head. Do fields of carnations even exist? For this post let’s pretend they do!
I love mint. Especially in the Winter, not that New York is actually have much of a Winter this year. Feels more like Spring outside.
But yeah, love me some mint in the Winter.
Dunno if the Holiday Season is to blame or I just like the cool, crisp smell of it in my shower and my beauty life “just because”, either way I loves it.
So I decided to pick up some Bath & Body Works True Blue Peppermint Really Refreshing Face Scrub to celebrate.
I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.
Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.
Garnier has some new wrinkle reducer out. Notice that snarky way I said that.
Sorry…I just don’t completely buy into all of Garnier’s claims and think they could do so much more with their products particularly when they are creating gems like their gel moisturizers. Guys, let’s see more of that good stuff!
This one is a 2 in 1 product that features a helix swirl of moisturizer plus the addition of serum. A single product to firm skin and hydrate while it’s doing the anti-aging bit.
Interestingly enough I’m seeing more and more products at my local drugstore that have testers out. That includes color cosmetics as well as skincare.
Mmm +1 for the drugstore!
I’m quite excited about the new MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream!
This one is infused with MAC’s Charged Water Technology and promises to moisturize as it reduces dark circles, lines, and puffiness. I’m not relying on it completely do erase fine lines and aging woes but I am highly interested in how hydrating it is!
It’s on my list.
