Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream Review & Swatches

Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream1

I think Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream actually used to be Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream but don’t quote me there as I never tried the original. It looks like they just added CC Cream into the name.

Although this has correcting benefits I think CC Cream is misleading in the name as it contains no color, doesn’t act as a concealer, etc…color correcting or CC Cream would relate to something with tint or something that has a color adapting shade. Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream does not have such a tint. So it can be both misleading and confusing to consumers. Of course, more appealing as well, “Oh CC Cream for eyes, have to try that!” A more accurate product would be Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab as at least this does act as a skincare and concealer in one.

However…let’s check Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream and see what the scoop is!

Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl Review & Swatches

Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl

It’s a funny thing about Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl ($33.99) it might seem expensive for a drugstore eye cream but it actually has some rather fine ingredients.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl is one of a few new skincare products launched in the Regenerist Luminous Collection (there’s a cleanser and a new moisturizer as well) that addresses the appearance of dark circles.

Let’s take a look!

Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips Review

Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips

Yay! The new seasonal, limited edition Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips have launched in Asia. Every year, Kao does a new seasonal scent for Spring and I typically pick up a few boxes because they are rather great.

In Spring 2012, they did the Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Collection and Spring 2010 brought us the Biore Resort Pore Pack Nose Strips Relaxing Floral.

A few years ago we did get a Mandarin scent here in the US but outside of that we never, ever got scented nose strips. Too bad because they are rather novel.

Take a look!

Hydrating Facial Mists Recommendations

facial mists

I happen to be a complete facial mist junkie and I’m pretty sure Lady Cassandra is one too. I admit I do imitate Cassandra’s British accent and mutter a haughty “Moisturize me, Moisturize Me!” as I spritz myself with my favorite facial mist. What I’m easily amused, sue me.

Facial mists come and go through my life like my very favorite JuJu Cosmetics White Peach Skin Whitening Mist which I have to restock up on soon! But for the most part I come back to two very important facial mists again and again and again because they never fail me.
