I’m not the type of Muse that gets excited about skin care. Cosmetics? Yes. Skin care? Not so much. I have me Lush regime and that’s about the extent of what I love about skin care. I’m not up for venturing outside my normal routine although on a rare occasion I’ll test something new out if someone sends it along or if I run across something that tickles me as interesting. But occasions like this are far and between. Recently, I got an e-mail alerting me to H20+ Face Oasis Ultra Hydrator and to say I was impressed is an understatement. This is incredible stuff!
Jump ahead for the review!
At $40 for 1.7oz this is an inexpensive, effective beauty find. H20 Face Oasis Ultra Hydrator delivers a cooling burst of moisturize to the skin with an oil-free formula that doesn’t feel greasy, oily, or heavy.
I could be convinced to switch my Lush Paradise Moisturizer for this. The formula is a gel with little spheres in it. Ok, I admit, I can do without the spheres. I hate chasing these things around my face trying to burst them, no likey. But aside from this minor rant the formula is positively dreamy. The gel absorbs very easily, very quickly, and feels like a cold cup of water for my face. Unlike many gels this doesn’t leave me feeling sticky or tacky just wonderfully soft and moisturized. With Summer here I can’t rave enough about this as it keeps my skin feeling dewy yet not oily, delivering just the right amount of moisturize to my weird combination skin that can’t decide if it wants to be dry or oily right now.
The moisturizer is enriched with nutri-sphere technology, Atlantic brown algae, and antioxidant multivitamins. It instantly gives skin a surge of intense moisture to replenish dull, dry skin.
Overall I’m very impressed with the way the moisturizer sinks into my skin so easily without laying on top my skin as many moisturizers are known to do. I’ve only been using it a very short time so I can’t speak for any long time benefits but so far my skin absolutely loves this.
You’ll love this if:
- Your skin needs a burst of moisture quickly!
- You want a light moisturizer that’s not oily or greasy.
- You love moisturizers that absorb in a snap and aren’t laying around on your skin.
- You’re trying to beat the Summer heat with a moisturizer that light yet moisturizers dry, tired skin.
I have to say even though it’s only been a short time I’m using this I’m loving it so far and feel the need to slap a Muse Approval on it!
Good stuff, very good stuff.
The entire H20+ Skincare line is quite inexpensive and worthy of a peep! Check it out at www.h2oplus.com

Check ‘em after the jump!
Putting aside all that good for you ingredients stuff the Muse admits that she’s just a gloss junkie kinda girl and the idea of anything that promises shiny, pigmented lips in a click style applicator is a no brainer in the “I wants that now please, thank you so much”.
Ok, ok aside from my need for more gloss I do so admit that the interesting antioxidant formula tickles my curiosity. The formula is supposedly non-sticky and highly moisturizing and most important packed with good for you ingredients. Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour is available in eight juicy shades ranging from opaque to shimmery, shimmery you say? Ok, I’m in.
- Raisin the Bar
- Pink Me Up
- Goodness Grapecious
- Absolute Açaí
Gawd they sound so good I best be careful not to lick the applicator, what? It’s been known to happen on occasion.
Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour is available now at your local counter or visit www.clinique.com for $17.50 each.

Here’s some popular keywords that brought readers to Musings last week. Check ‘em out.
Since LA Ink premiered the buzz around the Internet has brought many searches in for Kat Von D Concealer and how Kat Von D looks without her tats. The brand new Kat Von D Perfume has also caused a stir in my search box!
For some reason or another the Too Faced Smurfette Collection has generated quite a fair bit of incoming traffic lately. Everyone is searching up the smurfs…could it be we might see another smurfy collection soon or maybe it’s just about ready to hit the clearance bin!
Folks are obviously feeling the heat and humidity because searches for warm weather friendly makeup are abound like MAC Just a Pinch Blush, Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation, and Lush Tea Tree Water Toner.
Milani Runway Eyes Wet and Dry Eye Shadow in Beach has been named my fav a few times here at Musings and obviously it’s a fav this Summer as the searches are pouring in trying to find swatches for this great Summer shade!
The searches are also pouring in for Fall Makeup Collections 2009, Winter Collections 2009, and of course Holiday 2009. Obviously this heat doesn’t sway anyone from yearning for Fall and Holiday looks!
And that’s the top searches bringing people into Musings this week!
