Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water Review

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water ($12.99) joins the world of drugstore facial waters with a new formula that restores moisture and preps skin for makeup. Did I hear a scratching record?

Ahhh yeah so depending how you think of facial waters you’re either terribly confused or completely enlightened here. I’ve noticed some brands have taken to calling micellar water, facial water, and that can be a little confusing. In the case of Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water it is in fact a toning water and NOT a micellar water or makeup removing water. I kinda sort assumed it was to remove makeup considering that micellar waters are becoming increasingly popular in the drugstore world but it is in fact a toning water.

Let’s take a peek!

Kiko Softening Toner Review

Kiko Softening Toner

I recently picked up Kiko Softening Toner which is a “softening remineralizing lotion” that can be used as a micellar water of sorts! Since I’m obsessed with facial mist anything I decided to give this a whirl in the hopes I could multitask with it as a toner, facial mist, and micellar water all in one.

Let’s take a look!

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Review

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner 1

My Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner review is a long time coming as I’m already on my third bottle of this stuff and still have yet to feature it on Musings.

According to Etude House in provides not 1, not 2, not even 5 functions but it’s actually a 10 in 1 ultra pore solution! I feel like I need to beat on a drum and run in circles now or something!

Of course, it’s simply a toner but the promised 10 in 1 formulation sure does get me excited.

L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion Review

L'Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion

L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion is skin softening toner that I’ve been using several months now. I really enjoy the L’Occitane en Provence Divine Skincare Collection but actually use the lotion more than anything else from the collection.

Skin softening lotions (essences) or as we label them here in the US “toners” are getting some recognition lately. I suspect by Spring 2015 you’ll see a little bit of a trend for them. Essence is a common part of Asian skincare and one of the first steps in skincare application. Skin softening lotions like L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion is just one product in a long line of others that a typical Asian woman or man would use in their daily regime. Typically skincare regimes in Asia are made up of 5 to 8 daily products. Imagine that? I’ve adapted my own nighty skincare after this regime myself as I spend a lot of time around Japanese and Korean skincare and makeup. It seems overkill yes but actually my drier skin quite loves it.
