Occasionally, rarely, you can sometimes get the Muse to knock her habits and try something new. When it comes to skincare this Muse is a pure creature of habit so she normally kicks and screams when something is introduced into her perfect realm of skincare bliss.
Recently, she was told she must try John Masters Organics….hmmmm…ok, it’s organic….what else you got for me? Kinda cool chemist-y style packaging…mmmm ok I can be convinced maybe….smells nice….it’s getting good now….
Who am I to lie? John Masters Organics Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser had me at cool chemist-y style packaging…what I’m shallow I dig cool packaging sue me!
Jump ahead to find out if the packaging matches up with the product inside!
John Masters Organics Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser is a certified organic facial cleanser that’s not tested on animals, is paraben-free, contains no artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, or petro-chemicals. Ooo ok….green friendly makeup remover we like that…nods…yes we do!
Housed in a brown glass apothecary jar with pump this slick cleanser exfoliates as well as cleanses, multitasking, we like that too! The product is a nice creamy moisturizing cleanser that contains jojoba beads for exfoliation. It smells heavenly by the very way. It has a clean, crisp citrus scent with a touch of something green, just really fresh and beautiful! Likey!
Does it work?
Yes, it does a fair job of cleansing my skin while sloshing away dry, flaky skin. It’s meant for oily/combination skin which sadly means it does make my skin slightly tight and dry after use as at the moment I am in full blown dry skin mode however I really like how well it exfoliates plus it makes my skin kinda glow after use. I look all fresh and rosy cheeked after a cleanse with this!
If you’re looking for a good cleanser that combines exfoliation as well as being green friendly you might want to considering picking up John Masters Organics Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser.
All in all I liked it but the dry, tight feeling will keep me from using it again until Summer arrives and my skin begins to get oily. My skin will really like this than!
Anyone tried John Masters Organics?

By now you’ve probably indulged in your own pot of Steam Cream or not….after reading the Muse’s wonky rave and review about it she’s making the big assumption that she’s convinced you that life can’t go on without a few pots of Steam Cream hanging around your washroom, your vanity, and at your desk.
Miss my review?
Blast you! I guess I forgive you, click here to read it!
Question is, if you did indulge, is Steam Cream a Yay or a Nay for you?
Jump ahead to see what I think!
Cute tins? Check! Fast absorbing? Check! Works on my face, body, hands, and everywhere else in between? Check, check, check!
What isn’t to love about this multitasking demon of a cream that softens my skin and makes it all pretty again? Multitasking as both a facial and a body cream this amazing moisturizer sinks in on contact and is possibly thee fastest absorbing cream I’ve ever used in my life.
With good for you ingredients and a soothing, healing blend, Steam Cream has been a fast favorite this past Winter and a life saver for my dry skin.
So of course, it’s most definately, a big yay!
How about you?
Steam Cream must have winged it’s way to your side of the world by now.

Tis Summer soon sweeties! Excited about the warm weather? I kinda am although I’m more a lover of Fall and Winter, I can’t deny that Summer is a nice time of the year too.
In celebration of the warmer months to come I thought I’d do one of my crazy face peeling mask posts. Love me much?
I explained in a prior review how peeling masks work but I’ll give you another brief tutorial of what exactly a peeling mask is and how it works. Some people misinterpret peeling as meaning you apply, let dry, and peel off but that’s not the case with many facial peeling masks in Asia. You’re actually going to use some this on a damp face. Scoop a small amount in your hand, be sure your face is damp, and rub it on your face. It’ll begin to “peel” almost as soon as you massage it onto your face and thus “peeling mask” comes into play. The peeling effect supposedly swipes away dirt, oil, and other nasities!
Anosa Cooling Blue Herbal Face Peeling Mask is meant for oily skin so it’s rather ideal for the Summer since my skin tends to get little oily when it’s warmer. But the best part isn’t the fact that it rinses clean away oily skin but the fact that it feels so cooling on my skin! I absolutely adore the cooling effect and it makes for a nice Summer treat for my skin.
The formula can be a bit drying so do be careful not to use it often should you pick one up. Once a week is plenty for anyone with combination or dry skin. Anyone with oily skin can benefit from using it daily. I use it twice a week in the Summer as it makes my skin incredibly matte and squeaky clean with an almost glow after use.
I’m probably hyping it up a bit more than it really is but I rather enjoy the cool feeling plus it’s not to badly price if you’re paying retail! You can get it on E-bay for a bit of a jacked up price of $12.99-$14.99 USD which isn’t a great price but it’s kind of worth checking out if you have seriously oily skin as this is a nice little solution.
All in all another somewhat useless face mask but the Muse likes it anyway.
How about you?
