Super by Dr. Perricone Super Bright Eyed with Melon Carotenoids Review

Super by Dr. Perricone Super Bright Eyed with Melon Carotenoids 6

When I was little my mum always told me to eat my carrots because they were good for my eyes. Of course, she was referring to maintaining good vision but I kinda wish she meant that it would keep my eyes bright, wrinkle-free, and youthful!

Super Bright Eyed is one of several new skincare products that launched in the Super by Perricone Collection. The line features skincare products with superfood ingredients that deliver unsurpassed antioxidant potency to improve overall skin health.

Super Bright Eyed promises a hydrating, puff-free existence….

Does it work?

Musings of the Day: Is It Ok to Paint Your Little Boy’s Nails?

J Crew Jenna Paints Sons Nails

It’s funny I’m writing this post today as some of us were gushing over a Korean Drama, Playful Kiss, yesterday.

In the drama, the lead boy’s mother expresses how much she always wanted a little girl but she ended up with two boys. She goes on to tell the girl who’s crushing on her son how she would dress him up as a girl when he was little and even shows her pictures of him with pigtails.

It’s a rather cute story and makes for some great blackmail material for the girl who’s crushing so badly on that boy!

By now you may have already read the outrage over the J. Crew catalog which features president and creative director Jenna Lyons and her family. In one of the photos she’s painting her five year old son’s toenails pink and explains, “Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”

Well the shiz has hit the fan and everyone has opinion on how wrong or right this is.

What do you think?

Is it right or wrong to paint your small son’s toes nail and finger nails?

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
