Proactiv Oil Free Moisture Review

Proactiv Oil Free Moisture

Gurl, my skin is on freak out mode lately. I don’t have issues with acne, break outs, etc…but I do have super dry, dull skin. Maintenance is the word here. I have to keep my hands on my skin 24/7 because if I let it go things start to get super scary around these parts.

Using a rich moisturizer in the day makes my skin shiny and oily looking. As in wanna fry an egg on my face? That’s why I normally stick to richer moisturizers in the evening and a lighter one in the day.

Much to my delight I got a sample of Proactiv Solution Oil Free Moisture and I actually like it. I say actually because Proactiv is the type of brand that I think of for problem skin solutions but this one can be taken advantage by anyone.

Proactiv Oil Free Moisture is an oil free moisturizer with an SPF 15. This is fragrance free and hydrates skin quite nicely without giving it an oily, greasy look or feel. The thing I like about the formula is the lighter texture that allows my skin to breath while it hydrates. Even my dry skin can get on board with this. If your skin is oily, acne prone, or just plain sensitive you’ll love how gentle this is as well!

I liked this one alot and can see it becoming a part of my daily regime in both the winter and summer months!

Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist Review

Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist 001

I’ve said it before…

I simply don’t need another bottle of facial mist. I’m terribly addicted to them. Spritz here, mist there.

I remind myself of Peter O’Toole as Zaltar in Supergirl, “Spritz?” You either totally remember these geeky things or you don’t, it’s a gift.

But I do have an excuse this time. Just look at the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist and tell me how you could resist?

Jump!

Parissa Brow Shaped and Assorted Wax Strips Review

Parissa Brow Shaped and Assorted Wax Strips 001

My dad likes to tease my mum, telling her that we (my sister and I) are probably the milkman’s children. Shrug…..these people have been married as long as the grass has been green so I guess it’s ok that they tease each other about this kinda stuff.

Personally I think he’s wrong. My dad wasn’t the milkman, he was probably an ape because I’m one hell of a hairy beast. No shame in my game. My brows and stash are out of control, it’s a scary fact or should I say hairy fact?

Thank you beauty gods for wax what would I do without you? Oh yeah, I’d be a monkey that’s what. I prefer not dealing with the drama of waxing my own brows or upper lip. It’s just easier to head to the salon and have them do the dirty deed for me. I actually go to these really sweet Korean girl’s who own a local shop here……sometimes they’ll start chitchatting with each other as I lay on the table in fear. My Korean isn’t particularly great so I suspect the conversation goes something like, Cho Hee: “Oh my God, girlfriend is so hairy!” “I’m going to take a quickie cellphone pic while she lays here with her eyes closed and post it on the Internet…”! Sun Jung: “Oh do it, we get mad hits on the Internetz with a picture of the Muse’s hairy upper lip!”

Yup, they are so discussing my hairiness with words like chum-shim thrown in that’s obviously a clue about how they are talking about hairiness, nods, for serious (heavy sarcasm here).

When I don’t have time to go see Cho and Sun I have to take matters into my own hands at home so that’s why wax strips are such an easy way to go. The kind with the wax built right into the strip makes is an ideal way to zip off hair in a flash. However, many of these drugstore kits aren’t exactly the best and they leave behind alot of stray hair.

Until now. Thank you Parissa for making super wax strips to remove even the most stubborn hair!

Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask Review

Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask 001 390x292

I dunno if we should take fruit shaped skincare seriously. Should we?

It’s just a testimony to how different the Asian market is to our own. Cute, fruit shaped skincare is completely taken seriously dude! Why shouldn’t your moisturizer be shaped like a peach and your eye cream like an apple?

Fruit shaped skincare is actually a common packaging in the Eastern market particularly hand cream. Baviphat (I always think Baby Phat when I type that) is a Korean brand that takes a few notes from Benefit Cosmetics with their packaging, or hey, maybe Benefit takes notes from them? Although some of their color cosmetics have whimsical packaging (a la, you guested it, Benefit) their skincare borders on the edible, foody variety of the sphere.

Take a look at this Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask and you’ll see what I mean.
