Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Serum

After the Holidays, Winter is pretty much unleashed on New Yorkers far and wide although this year we got a taste of the bitter cold super early.

Needless to say, combining harsh, cold weather with skin does not make a pretty face. Think redness, flakiness, dry patches, and other woe and drama to play havoc with your skin.

Happy days!

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Serum releases just in time for those winter-weary complexions that need some extra TLC. This serum gives an immediate feeling of comfort on contact and not only helps to improve the texture of your skin but also acts as a moisture barrier, sealing and locking in hydration while sporting anti-aging ingredients to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and giving skin a more firmer, lifted look!

Ingredients include wheat, bran, and olive extract complex to help strengten skin’s natural barrier while improving its ability to lock moisture in. Vitamin C and a powerful peptide helps to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Clary Sage Extract encourages skin cell turnover and sweeps away dull surface cells to reveal a fresh, radiant surface while Magnolia Bark Extract, Sucrose and Caffeine help reduce visible redness caused by irritation and finally Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin and Meadowfoam Seed Oil infuse skin with moisture, instantly and over time.

Apply in in the morning and again in the evening followed up with your moisturizer of choice for smoother, healthier skin!

I’m of the mentality that a good serum is an absolute essential item when battling harsh Winter weather particularly for those of us who sport dry skin so Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repair Serum definitely sounds interesting.

Available in January at Bobbi Brown counters and online at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com

B&C Laboratories Sony CP Peach Hand Cream and Lip Balm Review, Photos, Swatches

I was thinking hard about it, no worries, haven’t shorted any circuits here….and I realized I apply hand cream just as chronically and compulsively as I do lip gloss.

Seriously.

Any chronic hand cream appliers out there? Is there a club? Can we get moral support for the compulsion? Is there anyway to stop when presented with kawaii fruit shaped lip balms and hand creams from Japan?

Why do they tempt us?

Biore Moisture Lotion Moisture (Cream In), Fresh (Cool), Moisture Review

I guess I’m a little weird but I follow the Kao Group very closely in Japan since I prefer their Biore releases over the ones that can be found in the US.

A recently Japanese release of new Biore Moisture Lotion intrigued me and I asked a friend to pick me some up. Shipping was a bit yak so I ended up telling her to skip it and hauled them from Adam at AdamBeauty (thanks Adam, love your shipping rates).

“Lotion” isn’t actually the term we’d use to describe what actually is toner. However, most Asian countries refer to toner as lotion so not to be confused here the Biore Moisture Lotion is, indeed, a toner.

Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Cleansing Oil Review and Rant

Look under my vanity sink and in my wash room cabinets and closet and you’ll find any number of cleansing oil bottles. Meaning I don’t need more.

However, present me with a bottle of the new Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Cleansing Oil and I can get excited. Aya Takano lends a hand in the creation of this year’s Holiday Collection and created a beautiful princess riding her magical stallion onto a bottle of one of my favorite cleansing oils…

But….
