Pond’s Cleansing Oil Review

Ponds Cleansing Oil

Pond’s Cleansing Oil is a Japan exclusive (and available in a few other select Asian countries) and supposedly contains three plant oils that make up the base for a hydrating cleansing oil experience.

I always find it interesting that a basic product like Cleansing Oil is made so readily available from brands like Ponds and even Maybelline yet the US market never actually sees these products.

Let’s take a look!

Julep Rock Star Hand Creme Is Rocking?

Julep Rock Star Hand Creme

I’ve finally faced reality that I won’t be a rock star anytime soon. I’ll have the quesadilla instead…

Le sigh.

But it doesn’t mean I don’t love everything Rock Star related especially beauty bytes!

Julep Rock Star Hand Creme ($20) is an emollient hand cream blended with shea butter, glycerin, coconut oil, and vitamin E to keep your skins super hydrated. The texture is supposedly non greasy and quick to absorb and I heard a rumor (that I just made up) that Lars uses it before every single performance.

I miss his long hair.

I met him backstage once, I even touched him. And on the 21st we’ll resume our relationship from afar when I hit up the Apollo theater to see Metallica in concert!

But that’s a story for another day….!

I wonder what it smells like? Booze, cocaine, and cheap perfume? Naaa! Julep wouldn’t go that far with their Rock Star status. Or would they?

It’s available now at QVC.com

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist Review

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist 2

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist is actually a reader request review as a few folks expressed interest in learning more about the Korean brand, Shara Shara.

Shara Shara Petit Friend Blooming Water Beam Mist acts as a makeup fix mist or as a facial mist and obviously, as you can see, it has some rather cute packaging which is why it has garnered some attention from all of you recently.

Take a look!

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil Review

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil

Miracle indeed! I’m loving the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil! This one you’ve got to try. I think cleansing oils are so misconceived as people assume they’ll make skin greasy or oily. Prior to trying a cleansing oil several years ago I had the same notion but please don’t be put off by such silliness. Cleansing Oils are wonderful and helpful aids to remove your makeup quickly and easily.

The Maybelline Clean Express Collection launched here in the US several months ago and it includes an eye makeup remover, cleansing wipes, and even a facial makeup remover but unfortunately the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil is exclusive to Asia. Oh woe is me! Thankfully it is easy enough to locate across a wide variety of online shops but I’m hopeful for Spring 2014 that Maybelline might consider launching it here in the US as sadly our market is lacking a budget variety of cleansing oils!

Take a look!

The Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask ($34) is a peel off facial mask is a calming, cooling, moisturizing mask formulated with anti-inflammatory ingridents to help and sooth redness as well as aloe vera for moisture.

I was curious and decided to give this a whirl but I don’t fit into the exact demographic for the mask, here’s a few thought anyway.
