Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash Review, Photos

Excuse me why I’ll rant at Biore for never releasing the cool stuff here in the US.

Biore WTH why can’t we have cool cleansers that are called Marshmallow Whip Face Wash? Not cool! We want these things too!

I happen to be a die hard fan of Kose Airy Whip, it was kinda my first introduction into the world of whippy, foamy, fluffy cleansers! I used to buy it by the case load and pimp it out on Musings and to my friends as an essential, must have quickie facial cleanser. Seriously, ask my friends, they’ll agree that they are tired hearing about Airy Whip.

Sorry, it’s just cool stuff.

Anything that looks like whipped cream in a can that can be used as a cleanser is the awesome to me. I’m easily excited about skincare.

That’s why Biore Marshmallow Whip Face Wash is so exciting, shhh, it’s actually taken the place of Airy Whip but DON’T mention that to Airy Whip as we’ve been friends for years and years, don’t wanna hurt its feelings eh? But seriously foaming plus a name with marshmallow in it?

Yes please!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil Review, Photos

Ok, let me it be know I have no issues with mineral oil but some folks do. It’s difficult finding a cleansing oil without mineral oil as one of the ingredients and the most commonly asked question I get about any cleansing oil I review is, “Does it contain mineral oil?”

Second most commonly asked question, “Any cheap cleansing oil recommendations that are easy to find in the US?” Although cleansing oil is a common part of the Asian beauty regime it’s not something that’s quite caught on in the US in my opinion. Hell, if it did, we’d all go to the drugstore and have our pick of any number of cleansing oils just like any good Asian woman can at their local drugstore in Japan, Korea, etc….it’s simply not the case in the US in my opinion. Some brands do have cleansing oil available however you probably didn’t even know they had one. MAC has one, surprised? I think we commonly associate cleansing oil with Shu Uemura and ouch expensive.

Want cheap?

Want readily available?

Want something to easily clean away makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara?

Want it without mineral oil?

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the ticket.

Made without mineral oil, allowing for a deep clean, and readily available for purchase plus an inexpensive price tag keeps this cleansing oil at the top of the awesome pile.

Scared of cleansing oil? Weird idea isn’t it? Taking oil and proceeding to rub it on your face…well it could prove a great idea for those of us with dry skin but even than it sounds a tad on the strange side…wouldn’t your face feel oily and greasy after use?

No way. Cleansing Oil rinses clean away and allows even the most stubborn, I’m sticking around until you die makeup to be removed easily!

Check it!

Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil

Hi there.

Miss me? Sorry I’m way behind on comments but trying to get through ‘em soon! Doing my best! Promise! E-mail is way backed up as well but will reply as fast as I can. And finally working on giveaways. One winner was alerted already, yay, congrats Candee! More winners are a coming and I’ll be alerting them as I finish up my database with all the entries on each giveaway!

That’s about all my blog news today. How about you? All well? Have a fab Holiday? I’m so ready for the weekend to start! Green Hornet coming out soon, I got messed up as I could have sworn Seth Rogen said it was coming out this weekend on Howard Stern this morning but maybe he was hitting the smoke before that interview. I got all hyped and realized, wait, it comes out next weekend, what the hell is he on about?

Crushing.

In other news I nearly finished Pasta. I’m so damn proud of myself, it only took several weeks to complete ha! I started it back in October proceeded to get busy and never finished it and re-started watching it recently and now I’m down to 5 episodes! Gong Hyo Jin so freaking kawaii! She’s darlin’! Just melts my heart when she runs after Lee Sun Gyun saying, “Chef, Chef!” Awwww! But what’s up with Honey Lee and her McSmirk in this drama…she’s constantly with a weird little grin on her face. Creepy! Totally devastated last night when our two heros are sitting at the bus stop and proceeding to share a kiss and the subtitles went off. I got all kinds of pissy after that but thanks to mayonnaisepan on Twitter for hearing my pleas of, “OMG WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY SAYING!?” and defusing the time bomb and saving the day!

Anyway….!

I have a slew of reviews upcoming for you shortly but anyone take note that Josie Maran has a new Argan Cleansing Oil?

Imma want some!

Josie Argan Cleansing Oil has launched on QVC and is, of course, injected with Argan Oil. Are we tired of Argan Oil yet? I say nay! Bring it on in this cold Winter air.

It’s a 6 oz size for $32, about an oz larger than Shu’s version which is $28 at 5 oz.

Could prove awesome eh?

Whatcha think?

Victoria’s Secret Shimmer Lights Eye Kit and Bronze Topics Eye Kit for Spring 2011

‘member the Victoria’s Secret Metallic Eyes Deluxe Palette and Bejeweled Eyes Deluxe Palettes from the Holidays? Did anyone actually haul those?

I ran to VS after seeing them, didn’t find them, ran back, finally located them, and proceeded to be uncomfortably disappointed that the promo images were way better than the actual product.

Damn.

Anyone do the same?

Well…

Victoria’s Secret introduces two more of these palettes for Spring 2011, not sure if they’ll prove more exciting but I love to share all things makeup with you so let’s have a lookiee.
