I’m thinking we should celebrate. You know, balloons, chips, dips, loud music, the whole deal. Why are we celebrating? Because the Gods above have granted us the ability to purchase DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil. I swear I heard angels sing when I noticed that DHC was actually carrying a product that hit Japan several months ago.
If you’re a DHC lover and a little or alot knowledgeable about DHC US versus DHC Asia, you’ve probably long since realized we get the boring packaging. DHC such a great brand but the packaging is so damn generic. Japan gets alot of great packaging plus some really cool collections such as the DHC Fruit Collection and the DHC Rose Collection.
This a break through people!
PINK DHC packaging….this is news. Call the papers, alert the President!
Ok but seriously. This really is kinda cool because I’m a package junkie and I really like good looking packaging. It’s pretty important to me in the scheme of my beauty purchases. DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil is the first of it’s kind to make it’s way to US shores. It’s really a break through for the brand because as I mentioned for the most part the packaging is pretty standard and dare I say boring in some aspects. Needless to say they make incredible products but why is the kawaii packaging reserved for Asia? No fairs!
Now that you heard my ramble about how sweet the packaging is have a little jump to hear about how well DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil performs.
I think I’ve established I’m in the realms of not loving L’Oreal 360 Cleansers. REALLY I wanted to adore these but they dry my skin out bad so it’s a no go sadly.
After that drama I decided to explore the new Garnier Skin Renew The Brusher Gel Cleanser (say that three times fast). Obviously, this season is going to bring with it a flow of interesting “brush” style cleansers. The Muse says bring it, I’m all for interesting beauty tools to clean my face.
Now my main beef with L’Oreal was the drying so of course I was naturally wary of trying out Garnier’s new cleanser but for the price I couldn’t really afford not to. On this note, maybe I’m not versed in the way of drugstore cleansers, but have you noticed how cheap new cleansers are? This was $7.99 and the L’Oreal ones, $6.99. That’s not too bad for a drugstore cleanser right? As last time I looked some products were ranging at borderline $10 bucks or more! Don’t quote me of course as when it comes to drugstore finds I’m just now getting my feet wet.
Onwards with the review!
The Muse realizes she probably doesn’t need more skin care in her life but she had such a difficult time passing up the new DHC Moisture Fruit Collection from Japan.
‘ello Clarins Bright Plus On-the-Spot Brightening Corrector ($35) want to be BFF?
Check it, this is a roll-on corrector designed to help reduce dark spots and soothe small imperfections. Ok, sounding good to the Muse’s ear here.
It’s enriched with a combination of sea lily and alchemilla extracts to provide optimal protection against dark spots. Alchemilla is a natural antioxidant that helps tone and smooth skin. Sea lily grows in a secluded area off the coast of Brittany. Known for its resiliency, it helps reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin. Meadowsweet extract purifies and soothes smaller spots. A combination of raspberry extract, biotin and highly stable vitamin C reduces melanin.
That sounds important and stuff but I just want it to lighten up my dull spots, can do Clarins?
Must try your new Bright Plus On-the-Spot Brightening Corrector for myself to find out!
Available now at Nordies.
Whatcha think chicklets?
The Muse admits on a rare occasion she comes home feeling rather lazy and not wanting to go through the entire process that makes up her night time cleansing regime. Lord, it takes ages just to get ones face clean on some nights.
When I’m feeling every so knackered and not up for the long process I take a little short cut with the new Clarins Gentle Beauty Soap.
