The Muse tends to enjoy washing her face up good in the shower. I’m not a morning person so every single day I take a shower before heading out to meet the day. I simply don’t feel clean or awake if I don’t shower in the AM.
Since I’m in there washin’ up my body, I might as well go ahead and take care of my face as well right?
Jump ahead to find out what skincare is in my shower and tell me what’s in yours?

Ahh cherries and chocolate. I guess some folk consider it ambrosia, I happen to hate it. Cherry cordials? Gag me with a spoon. Can’t stand them. I swear they make me literally ill. I mean it’s chocolate which is ok (I’m not the biggest choco-aholic around) and slimy gross cherries inside so when you bite into it you get a surprisingly gross texture in your mouth that’s supposed to make you roll your eyes back in your head and sigh in delight?
I think not.
I like cherries and I like chocolates but the two together I’ll skip on!
You know My Beauty Diary combined chocolate and cherries to make their new facial masks and I honestly wasn’t so disgusted but more excited!
Just for the record, I’m pretty crazy about mint. I like it in my shampoo, and my toothpaste, and my shower gel, and now I even like it in my skincare.
Mint and me are close.
A little more discussion about the joys of minty fresh skin care lay ahead!
Awww hey! What’s up chicklets?
I’ve had a very busy day and haven’t had a sec to say ‘ello, ‘ello to everyone. Sorries! I’m a bit behind on comments but I’m slowly rolling through them, promise to blather with you soon.
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty slow going due to the crummy weather. OMG it was like hurricane season in New York this weekend!
Went to see She’s Out of My League on Friday night and now sporting a serious crush on Jay Baruchel, how stupid cute is he? Also hit up Arlene’s Grocery Saturday Night, did brunch and shopping with my friends Sunday, and sat in front of the tube introducing my friend Martin to the joys of the Inbetweeners in the evening as they had a marathon on Sunday so I Tivo’ed up and rewatched all the episodes with Martin. I’m crushing hard on Blake Harrison, I swear that kid’s idiot routine is brilliance on a stick, you NEED to watch this show if you aren’t already.
Anyway…I also recently discovered that Lotree, my fav Korean brand, is being sold on Sasa. It’s such a great excuse to haul out some of my stash and review for you!
Check out my Lotree Ruby Clear Cleansing Oil Review after the jump!
The economy is on it’s way, very slowly, to recovery and just think once we ht a good speed bump, instead of the nasty pitfalls, we’ll have a ton of good stuff to look forward. Extra fees, taxes, and all sorts of fantastic new ways to get more money from us should be coming atcha soon. Excited?
Which had me thinking about when we’ll have to pay for oxygen or perhaps it’ll simply be a tax on the air we breath. Granted we already pay for the very basics of things like water from the tap, why not the air we breath too?
I pay $18 for my oxygen and love it! It’s one form of oxygen I’m very willing to pay for.
If you told me last month I’d be smearing cheese all over my face and loving it, I’d probably have called you a liar.
You see, the Muse hates cheese.
Unless it’s melted I’m not eating it. I have alot of food quirks and cheese happens to be one. My x-boyfriend would tell you that the sun, moon, earth, and stars revolve around a slab of cheese but I have no such feelings for the stuff and would happily do without. Mind you I like grilled cheese and I like pizza but that’s all melted….the moral of this story is I will NOT eat cheese unless it’s been melted.
This is the story of my life.
Cheese not being in my top ten list as it is you could imagine my horror when I came across The Skin Food Creamy Cheese Mask. Does that sound down right disgusting? Simply rancid! Who wants to go around smearing cheese on their face?!
I’ve no idea how I talked myself into it being a good idea to purchase this but purchase it I did and it changed my idea of cheese forever.
I’m one of those types that’s a little wary of putting butt cream under my eyes, yes I said butt. The Muse suffers from a fair bit of puffiness come morning so she’s always on a merry trip to discover the next best thing to ease the puff. I can’t tell you how many reviews, articles, posts, and such have recommended hemorrhoid cream to do the deed…but I am not do desperate I have to resort to butt cream to get my eyes back in order again…
I can’t do it, I simply can’t. I don’t care how models SWEAR by it, I simply can’t bring myself to slather hemorrhoid cream under my eyes.
No way, no how.
Which is why my adventures have now led me onto the next best thing that promises to ease the puffiness.
Soap & Glory You Won’t Believe Your Eyes Serum….hmmm…another gimmick? A good deed sent from the gods above? Something to ease the puff?
Ok, so I’m woman enough to admit I like to pick stuff, peel stuff, and pop stuff. Pop pimples, on that. Pick my nose? No, never but scabs? Aw heck yes! Peel? Sure, give me dead skin, sunburned skin, whatever you got and I’ll peel it. Yes, I am guilty of all this stuff. God…don’t sit there and lie saying you don’t enjoy doing this too. You don’t want us thinking how terribly dishonest you are because you won’t admit you relish the idea of picking that scab off your knee when you fell on the ice last week and scratched yourself.
My best friend once told me that he enjoys popping his boyfriend’s pimples…I just wanna get it out there that I do NOT love the idea of peeling, popping, or picking stuff from other people’s bodies however I have no such problems doing it to myself. Needless to say I never held Jai’s hand again after hearing he pops Mattie’s pimples, ew…not cool!
Anyway…I’m bringing this all up because of a cool peel mask I recently got.
Jump it to hear my stories of peeling!
Check it chicks!
Everyone was quite excited about all the new Soap & Glory products that popped up in the UK a few months ago. Particularly the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask and the Soap & Glory Fab Pore Hot Cleanser.
Beauty news of the day?
They are all available at Target for purchase. I was shopping the bulls eye this weekend and came across all the new bits. They are located on a front cap display prior to entering the beauty section.
They are also available online however it’s saying 3 to 4 week deliver time…mmm better off checking in store.
And do share if you hauled from your local Target.
I probably wouldn’t believe you if you said that you could find me an inexpensive mask treatment that worked.
Lies! Blasphemy! Can’t be!
But…I will say Freeman Pineapple Facial Enzyme Mask could prove the exception to the rule.
Note to self:
You so do not need more skin care products, try to refrain.
P.S. You are SO gorgeous!
Helpful hint: Whenever you’re writing to yourself remember to boost your ego with tons of kind compliments, even if they aren’t true.
I’ve tossed in my The Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Collection while I test out The Skin Food Fresh Juice C Collection. What? I have no shame! I’d cheat on my own husband (if I had one) for another skincare product if I had to!
The Muse is a big time literary geek and one of fav books is Through the Looking Glass but of course I’d like to sit here and tell you about my great love of the book but even I can admit I simply want to see Alice in Wonderland because of the Johnny Depp…who doesn’t?
With the introduction of Alice in Wonderland being adapted to the big screen we get flooded with an absurd amount of merchandise and most important fun beauty bits and bobs.
Here’s some of my top beauty picks (and some not beauty related) to celebrate the release of Alice in Wonderland today!
I want a serum bar. Say what Muse? A cereal bar? No, a serum bar! I want a Lush Serum Bar!
