the Muse Loves….Beauty-Free

I do alot of Beauty Abroad here on Musings. Japanese Brands, Korean, British…you name it and I try to cover it.

But if you really want beauty abroad in a clever way you have to check out Beauty-Free!

I just discovered this site today and Imma say it’s brilliant. The site is dedicated to Duty Free beauty discoveries. Seriously, how brills is that?

Every single post is about duty free beauty products you’d find at the airport….I think I’m in love.

Since I happen to love punishing myself with makeup and skincare that proves tricky to locate this is the perfect little website for me.

Loves it!

Visit Beauty-Free at beauty-free.co.uk I think you’ll love it as much as I do!

Now we should probably arrange a road trip around the world to gather up all the fab finds on this site right? Anyone wanna come with?

Princess Carnival Aegean Rose Moisturizing Mask Review

Princess Carnival is a range of sheet masks from Asian brand IsQueen. The facial sheet mask collection has a cutesy, “My Beauty Diary” feel about them.

These are fairly inexpensive at about $5 for 5 masks each however since we are in the US we do have to worry about paying online retailers far more for them. It would be ever so nice if sheet masks were as easily to come by in our drugstores as they are in Asian ones. Facial Sheet Masks we do have access to such as from brands like Shu Uemura are triple the price in the North American market.

So unfair…
