Skin Food Water Drop Facial Ice Vita Cream 1

You might well recognize the Skin Food Water Drop Facial Ice Vita Cream as it is from the same collection as the recently released Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist and Skin Food Vita Water Drop CC Cream I recently reviewed for you!

Supposedly this contains over 80% Alaskan Glacier water. I said it before I say it again I have no idea where in Korea they get Glacier water but props for great marketing….!

Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist Review

Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist

Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist joined my empire of facial mists earlier this month because I don’t technically own a snail facial mist and I felt like I needed to mist myself with snail mucus. I mean I’m already applying it via moisturizer and facial masks so why the hell can’t I mist it on my face too right?

Wink!

I know sounds weird but it really isn’t, promise!

The Ultimate Summer Legs

Gillete Venus Olay Razor

The weather is finally starting to warm up around here and my legs are starting to make a reappearance after hibernating for the winter and even the spring. Spring was a bit chilly this year with a good deal of rain so there weren’t many opportunities for dresses, skirts, or shorts. I hope to redeem that now this summer! The Gillette Venus & Olay Razor in the newest Sugarberry scent is just the ticket to getting my legs smooth and perfect for shorts.

Seriously, keeping your legs smooth is a full time job sometimes which is why you need a good razor handy to get a great close shave. The Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Razor contains five blades allowing for a close shave. The soft grip handle allows for comfortable control of the razor as you shave. But the best part of the razor is the fact that you don’t need separate shaving cream to get a smooth shave as the razor has built in Olay Moisture Bars located on either side of the razor which help lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness vs. the Breeze razor over time and take the place of shaving cream. These bars have a sweet scent called Sugarberry! When you’re done just pop the razor into its storage caddy that you can tack onto the tiles in your shower stall.

Having a good razor at home will save you a good deal of money on laser, electrolysis, or waxing treatments and makes hair removal at home easier and more efficient.

Most women prefer a wet shave as it’s easy on our legs plus mess-free as we can do it in the shower.

For a smooth, close shave follow these tips:

  • Make sure your razor blade is fresh and is of good quality. The Venus & Olay Razor has five blades which allow for a close, comfortable shave and once your blades go blunt it’s easy enough to purchase refills.
  • Take a warm, hot shower to soften hair.
  • Some suggest shaving down your legs before shaving upwards as it has longer lasting results. This is actually what I do. I shave down and proceed to shave upwards after so you get a double shave experience that gives you a little longer in between shaving.

Since the Venus & Olay Razor has built in moisture bars you don’t need to go the extra step with shaving cream or soap however, I do suggest following up, after your legs are dry, with a good body cream such as Olay lotion to provide more moisture and smoothness to skin.

Detox with Lush Dark Angels Cleanser

Lush Dark Angels Cleanser

I needed a little detox time with Lush Dark Angels Cleanser this week. My skin is rather dry, flaky, and a little over stressed courtesy too much air conditioning, stale airplane air, travel, and exhaustion. You ever have that sudden moment in time when you look at your face and realize how incredibly dull, lackluster, and tired it looks?

Typically that means it’s time to haul out the facial sheet masks for me but prior to doing that I give myself a good scrub with Dark Angels to get my glow back.

Etude House Ice Shot Freeze Foam Review

Etude House Ice Shot Freeze Foam

They tell me the dog days of Summer are ahead so maybe the Etude House Ice Shot Freeze Foam I recently purchased will come in handy! But I admit since getting home I’m in Fall mode! Plus it has been a little cooler lately and I haven’t even had the AC on in my house for the past two nights as it’s been mild enough to sleep without it.

But that’s no reason to believe Summer is over so Etude House Ice Shot Freeze Foam will stay firmly in my tote just in case.

What is it?

You’ll see…!
