Biore Make-Up Remover Gel Review

Sigh it’s such sadness we don’t get nearly half the Biore Collection here in the US. The Eastern market features a range of not only skincare but even shower gels and soaps….

Damn shame we get around 7 or 8 products and that’s about it.

Biore Make-Up Remover Gel is one product you won’t find in drugstores here in the US but you might want to track it down if you have a larger Asian community in your city.

Check it!

the Balm Time Balm Kiwi Facial Scrub Review

I’m switching my skincare cabinet around (yes, I haz cabinet for my skincare) so that all my exfoliaters play a prominent, Oscar Winning Role, front and center. Because it might feel like Summer in this city today (weather has been abnormally warm) but it gets cold in the evening and early morning which results in devastatingly dry skin.

No likey.

I’ve been testing out the Balm Time Balm Kiwi Facial Scrub to see if it’ll make the cut as a keeper.

Let’s have a lookiee!

Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser Review

Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

Scrub, scrub, scrub…

My skin needs a good scrub to ease the dullness, rid myself of dryness and flakes, plus I don’t want to worry about the scrub I use drying my skin out further because girl, you know these exfoliators are the work of the devil. I used to be a hardcore Philosophy Microdelivery fan but I swear it was making things worst instead of better.

Moral of the story, exfoliators are great but sometimes they make dry skin even drier.

I’ve been playing around with a few scrubs lately and at the moment Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is on my radar so let’s talk about it together?

Jump!

Nip & Fab Live Twitter Chat

British brand, Nip and Fab, has recently launched at Target. The line is actually created by Maria Hatzistefanis the found of Rodial. Rodial being rather expensive it’s nice to know there’s a budget friendly option available out there by the same folks who brought it to us eh? Think of Nip and Fab as the new Soap & Glory peeps as it has some fabulous little products that will not only conceal your dark circles but give your tummy a much needed pick me up!

Some products that caught my eye were the Eye Fix which is a concealer that reduces puffiness plus their Sheer Make-Up Fix which sounds like a low calorie BB Cream.

Maria’s actually live on Twitter today (12:00 PM EST) if you want to ask her questions about the brand, the products, or even ask her suggestions about common beauty problems like dreaded puffy eyes!

Tweet her at @NipandFab using hashtags #NipandFabinTarget and #TargetChat to get replies to your questions!

Have fun!

P.S. Have you tried Nip & Fab?
