Happy Syu Wa Wa Powder Wash Review

Are you tired of powder washes yet? The Muse has featured three already in review and today she’ll bore you further with her very favorite powder wash.

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+1

Now do keep in mind the only reason she loves this one is because it’s called Happy Syu Wa Wa, seriously does the name not alone make you giddy or is it only me?

Happy Syu Wa Wa is created by B&C and runs around $4-$5 USD or sometimes higher depending on where you purchase. It’s a basic powder wash for removing makeup, simply add a small amount to water, rub together and wash your face.

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+6

One good plus side of this particular powder was is it produces a rather rich, almost carbonated lather that looks like a foam and really does a good job of moisturizing my face as well as removing my makeup.

It boasts that it can boost blood circulation for softer, smoother skin but count me not believing that much, let’s not get crazy now!

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+2

Happy+Syu+Wa+Wa+Powder+Wash+3

It’s perfectly good for all skin types as it doesn’t strip skin or leave it dry plus if you happen to have oily skin it does a good job of mattifying skin but no fear for dry skin types as you won’t experience dryness. It’s completely unscented so if you like your cleansers sans scent you’ll be all the happier with this.

For the price it’s a rather good, basic powder wash without any bells or whistles. I’m a particular fan of the foaming action which is why I tend to buy it when I run low but aside from that it doesn’t have anything huge going for it that makes me want to urge you to go out and grab it for yourself.

If you can find it cheap I highly recommend trying it out as it’s a nice basic powder plus who can’t love that name, Happy Syu Wa Wa, makes me want to dance!

The Solution by Envision Beauty Review

Dreaming of an anti-aging complex that’s paraben-free and alcohol-free? Dream no more, the Muse has the Solution.

No, literally I have the Solution, The Solution by Envision Beauty that is.

Envision+the+Solution+2

I’m a creature of habit when it comes to skincare and it’s rare I veer off the well used Lush Cosmetics path that I’ve taken for many a fine year. However, being a beauty blogger I do realize that readers expect a few skincare product reviews here and there that aren’t Lush in origin. So today I’ll take you on an adventure with Envision The Solution Advanced Anti-Aging Complex that has a slew of goodness backing it up and I’m sure by the end of this review you’ll be lemming it.

Restore, perfect, and protect your face are the motto of the day when one discusses The Solution by Envision Beauty moisturizer. Both paraben and alcohol free make this solution coveted by many I’m sure. With advanced lifting and firming action plus added benefits of decreasing the appearance of fine lines I’m positive this is something to get excited about. Considering I have no fine lines as of yet I do envision myself protecting and perfecting my face with this complex. With a cocktail of vitamins A, B4, C, E and natural antioxidants goji and acai I feel confident I’m putting something on my face that’s good for my skin.

Envision+the+Solution+4

I’ve always desired a lightweight anti-aging moisturizer and this pretty much brings everything to the table that I’d desire in one plus it’s alcohol free which means it glides onto my skin, absorbs easily, and doesn’t dry me out due to high levels of alcohol. The formula is a gel-like moisturizer that’s gentle, soft, and applies easily while absorbing into my skin upon contact.

After a near month of use my skin feels amazing! I have a certain glow about my skin, no rough, dry patches, and I feel like my skin feels healthier. Soft, silky skin in the Winter? Unheard of for me but this truly made my skin look and feel better. Like a cup of water for my skin the formula feels cooling and gentle as it glides on.

Envision+the+Solution+8

I’ve been searching for an anti-aging cream for a while now that wasn’t thick and heavy as most are and this successfully manages to be light, airy, and absorbs easily. These are all added benefits for me as I feel like most every anti-aging cream I’ve used always sit on my skin.

Overall, it’s worth checking out for yourself simply for the amazing formula especially if you’re a green-friendly makeup user as this combines both science and nature to create a perfect anti-aging complex that’s sure to please.

Loves it!

The Solution by Envision Beauty can be purchased at www.envision-beauty.com plus they currently have a promo for buy 1 get 1 free! Gasp! Awesome! The Muse likey!

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream Review

My quest for inexpensive beauty finds has led me to Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream which has a near perfect rating on Make Up Alley and a really huge fan base on the Avon website.

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Night+Revitalizing+Cream+1

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Night+Revitalizing+Cream+4

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Night+Revitalizing+Cream+3

If the MUA’ers like it that has to account for some of it’s creditability wouldn’t you agree?

At $32 USD for a 1.7oz jar I doubt you’ll find a cheaper night cream option, jump ahead and more about Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream.

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream Review is a lightweight gel-like cream that works while you sleep to rejuvenate sleep, hence the name eh?

The price can’t be beat as this not only renews and rejuvenates but also helps to visibly shrink pores and erase fine lines from the face. Gets better and better doesn’t it? The formula is a gel cream which absorbs easily into the skin with absolutely no effort, my dry skin seems to like it alot as it’s cooling and glides into my skin beautifully. It carries a fresh scent which is somewhat floral, almost rose-like, very pleasant.

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Night+Revitalizing+Cream+5

I honestly can’t speak for reducing pores and fine lines but the moisturizer did work well at renewing my tired, dry skin so I woke up with soft, silky skin minus dry, flaky patches that are customary in the Winter for me. Normally I use Philosophy When Hope is Night Enough for my night cream but I quickly ditched it in place of Lush Skin Nanny for the anti-aging benefits. A few months ago I discovered Steamcream (review coming soon…) which became my night cream but honestly speaking Steamcream has absolutely no anti-aging benefits to speak of. Taking into consideration all of this I’ve decided to make Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream my nightly cream until the jar is finished as I hope to report back soon that I see as many visible improvements as reviews have claimed on both MUA and the Avon site. So far I’m quite pleased that it works well with my dry skin and absorbs quickly, the benefits of anti-aging ingredients and promises of renewed skin are added bonuses.

All in all if you’re looking for a budget friendly night cream with quite a few bells and whistles I do think checking out Avon Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream could be worth checking into!

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial Review

The Muse is always fascinated by tales of large pores! I honestly am. I have absolutely no problem in regards to large pores on my face and can’t begin to understand the problems and woes that come with large pores. Heck I already have plenty of problems without added drama of large pores.

Whenever I hear some of you discussing large pore problems I become instantly intrigued as I’m just curious how exactly one should go about covering large pores, treating them, etc…..It’s quite a mystery to me.

I recently ran across Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial and couldn’t help but think of the many conversations I’ve had on here with readers complaining about large pores….it seemed maybe, just maybe Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial might be the solution some of you craved?

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Flash+Facial+2

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Flash+Facial+3

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial doesn’t come cheap at $48 USD (have no fear Avon always has awesome sales so I imagine sooner or later you’ll score a deal or two!) and I must say I was shocked as I didn’t know Avon carried products that were ranging above $20 bucks…whoa. Count me shocked and surprised. I’m somehow of the mentality that if it costs more that must surely mean it works. Dontcha sometimes get that vibe? Even I pay $118 for mascara it surely will work WAY better than the $8 one! Either I’m nuts or everyone has totally experienced that feeling before. Of course, when I heard Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial was $48 USD I was all about how it must be a miracle in a bottle!

What is it?

Avon Anew Rejuvenate Flash Facial is designed to visibly shrink pores while resurfacing skin to clarify and reveal fresher, renewed skin. Revitafresh Technology helps skin look more even and smoother. I have no idea what Revitafresh Technology is but it sounds important and it sounds like people with large pores need some of that stuff! The treatment does also offer relief for fine lines so if you’re running into the effects of aging this will be helpful as well.

Avon+Anew+Rejuvenate+Flash+Facial+4

As I mentioned I don’t have large pores but it sounds like this was something I could make use of simply because I suffer from dull skin. My skin somehow fails to have any glow left in it lately. This happens a few times a year in particular Winter and Summer when the heat and the cold take a toll on my skin and it loses moisture.

I’ve used this for over two weeks now and I must say my skin does look refreshed and healthy. Count the Muse impressed. I used this in conjunction with my current moisturizing so this took the place of my serum temporarily. It’s a very light, gel like formula that absorbs instantly into skin and feels slightly cooling on. They do promise instant results that are visible but I honestly seen no results until 11 days into use. Within 11 days I noticed that my skin was even and less dull and I also felt like it looked healthier if that makes sense. After I stopped using the product my skin ended up going back to being dull again so I’ve taken up using it again in place of my normal serum. From all the rave reviews on the site it appears to be a miracle cure for those with rosacea as well.

Who may want to try it?

  • Anyone with redness or ruddy cheeks and face
  • Those who want to diminish the appearance of large pores
  • Anyone who wants to resurface their skin and wake up dull, uneven skin

I think it’s worth checking out as I did see pretty nice results!
