Lumene Time Freeze Eye Perfecting Treatment

Lumene Time Freeze Eye Perfecting Treatment 1

Lumene is some of the best skincare you’re going to get at your local drugstore in my humblest. They make solid products which perform well and the price tag isn’t too bad either particularly if you can’t dish out $50 or more on a moisturizer.

For Spring 2011, Lumene Time Freeze Eye Perfecting Treatment gets added to their skincare line. I’m always about good eye treatments!

Let’s have a peek!

Do You DHC? Japanese Skincare in a Western World

DHC Skincare Cosmetics

I’m commonly asked, “Where can I buy good Asian skincare in the US?” This is difficult to say as tracking down Japanese or Korean skincare in the US isn’t easy and most of it involves online sleuthing if you live in a small suburb or city. My city happens to have alot of little beauty shops that actually carry various Asian brands however my best success is swapping with friends who live abroad or going the Internet shopping route.

Shopping online is such a traumatic experience when dealing with beauty purchases abroad since sellers are legendary for jacking prices up to crazy heights.

Solution?

DHC.

DHC is a Japanese manufacturer of cosmetics, healthy food supplements, apparel, etc….however here in the US we only get the cosmetic and skincare side of DHC which is fine by me as I’m all about the beauty!

DHC offers an easy, fairly inexpensive way to get high quality Japanese skincare easily!

Chose from various lotions and potions to address any need such as oily skin, anti-aging, and more! Snag yourself a bottle of DHC’s cult favorite Deep Cleansing Oil or grab some sheet masks. Cleansing Oil and Sheet Masks aren’t something you commonly see from US brands so both can be a novel experience to try out for the first time or to stock up on if you already love and use these items!

From haircare to skincare and even body care, DHC covers a wide range of products for your beauty needs.

So do you DHC?

Have any favorite products from the brand?

If not, I do suggest you explore the site, you might be surprised at how many great offerings they have!

Browse it at www.dhccare.com

I look forward to hearing thoughts from the seasoned DHC user!

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads Review

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads 4

My skin is super dull! Those who suffer from the same skin prob know exactly what I mean. It’s just that lack of glow, that freshness, the look of health…sadly my skin doesn’t have it. I have to rely on a good base product to give me that lively glow that I’m seeking otherwise I’m ghastly to say the least.

I’m always searching for the best best thing to ease the dullness. Could be lack of those 8 glasses of water I’m drinking, too many late nights, or maybe just the weather but I’m definitely always looking for that perfect product to eliminate the problem!

Recently, I came across First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads and decided to give ‘em a whirl, hey, this could be the next best product to give me that “glow” I’m seeking.

Let’s check ‘em!

Josie Maran Argan Oil 5 Piece Color Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Oil 1

A week or two ago QVC had the Josie Maran Argan Oil 5 Piece Color Collection on sale. Sadly it’s now sold out but I thought I’d give you a quickie glance of the items included just in case it comes back in stock soon!

This isn’t a full review of the items. I’ll be breaking them up and reviewing each individually as I believe as Spring gets nearer you’ll probably be able to buy them this way anyway (and most are already available on QVC for purchase on their own). Needless to say the gloss, blush stick, and Argan Oil are already available for purchase on their own but those too will each get their own detailed review.

For now here’s the set, JUST IN CASE, it should make a reappearance on QVC as at least you’ll know what you are getting into!

Check it!

Part of L’Occitane Almond Apple Cleansing Oil’s appeal is fact it’s so readily available, cheap, and seemed like it would smell amazing! Add to that the fact that L’Occitane dubs it a great one for dull skin and hell, I was on board!
