The Muse always feels the need for more shower gels. It just so happens that she stock piles shower gels like no one’s business. The bad news is, that if we run out of water she’s sure going to have a buncha useless bottles of gel but the good news is she smells really pretty in the morning.
If you’re feel the need for a unique showering experience in a jumbo size with a little price tag she says check out Pacifica for all your feel good shower experiences!
Pacifica Body Wash, like everything Pacifica, is available in a great size for a small price tag. $18 USD gets you 16 oz of uniquely scented shower gel! Likey!
Pacifica Body Wash is full of organic ingredients and natural essential oils that make indulging good for you. Formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, and Petro-Chemicals and Vegan friendly, these are sure to please the green friendly!
The body wash is nicely moisturizing and doesn’t dry my skin out. It creates mounds of foamy suds! Weee! They smell so good I used some in my hair as shampoo eep! Is that even allowed in the shower gel world? Oh wells!
I already own Pacifica Lotion in Lotus Garden and Bali Lime Papaya so I was delighted to add both scents to my collection in shower gel form! Good for layering.
Lotus Garden is turning out to be my absolute fav Pacifica scent lately and I can’t get enough of it. Lotus Garden has is a crisp, clean citrus. The citrus keeps the blend fruity but it’s quickly followed up with green notes and a strong underlay of lotus which gives a clean note to the fragrance. It’s quite unusual and very, very unique!
The other scent I have is Bali Lime Papaya which has notes of papaya but with just the right amount of lime to create a complexity that’s fruity and sweet! Likey! Perfect for Summer wear!
Any way you splice it Pacifica gets you alot of bang for your buck plus it’s vegan! Gotta loves it!
Total Muse Approval for purchase!
The entire Pacifica Collection is available from Sephora now! Check it at www.sephora.com
Just like me, they long to be close to you…..! Shills longs to be Close to you dontcha know?
Jump ahead for a review on Shills Close to You because it’s longing to be close to the Muse and the Muse happens not to mind in the least.
Like most Asian cosmetics, Shills Close to You has it’s little gimmicky fix it all promise in a cute little pot. Hey, we love cosmetics that promise us perfection right, plus, better yet, in cute packaging. Score! Or in this case it promises to “keep fit of the skin”…that sounds really important, kinda, right?
Here’s the deal Shills Close to You is kinda sorta a foundation prep and prime. It’s supposed to fill fine lines, pores, and skin imperfections prior to foundation. The real deal is since it’s so moisturizing and creamy it’s probably not going to do much in the ways of priming your skin if you have woes such as large pores. The bad news is as a primer Close to You is a fail! But as a prep…as a prep we might have something here.
Think of this as a concealer for your face and you might have a win situation. Think of it as a light form of coverage for days you’re too lazy to apply a full face of makeup and again you have a win. Think of it as a spot treatment and yet again you’re winning. Or swipe a bit under your eyes and again you’re multitasking your way to a win.
If you drop the primer from the description you’ll have yourself a nice multitasking quick fix with a killer moisturizing formula that blends like a dream and leaves your face looking healthy and flawless. Likey. Win!
We could deem Shills Close to You as a bit of a gimmick considering it’s pratically an identical product to Shills Electric Eye Concealer. Honestly, I have no way of knowing if the formulas are the same but to me they appear the same, they feel the same….just come in different packaging shrug. But hey I can cope with two cute packages that supposedly perform two separate functions.
I use Shills Close to You as a light makeup coverage when I’m just running out the door for an errand or not wanting a full on makeup. It creates a nice even canvas for a bit of cheek stain and I’m ready to rumble. I don’t normally use a concealer on pimples but I rarely get pimples plus I don’t believe in covering them up anyway, let the bloody things breath and dry out is my solution. And I don’t really have pores or fine lines to hide away plus I’m thinking Close to You wouldn’t be much help anyway.
If you’re wanting a quickie makeup for on the fly application and a nice smooth, fresh appearance or maybe a nice prep prior to foundation, Shills Close to You is the way to go. Disregard it’s Benefit dupe packaging and just enjoy the awesomeness that is Shills.
Likey possibly falls in the realms of loves it for this Muse!
Shills Close to You is exclusive to Taiwan but you can get it on Evil-bay if you’re so inclined. I paid retail which is around $4-5 USD, I’ve seen it on E-bay for around $12.99 USD so not too, too bad. It’s kinda worth checking out if you’re fair to medium skin as it’s a great little multitasking makeup item to stash in your purse.
Now the Muse can’t speak for herself, as she’s practically perfect in every way al la Mary Poppins, but there happens to me a brand new facial filling serum from Avon that our mum’s can take advantage of!
What? I really am perfect in all ways that excludes wrinkles…well ok I admit maybe I have one two under my eyes……
Jump ahead for the deets on Avon Anew Clinical Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum….I dare you to say that three time’s really fast!
Avon steps up it’s game YET again in the skincare department with a brand new injectable-grade facial filler in serum form. Avon is all postal on the skincare world lately with all these interesting high tech wrinkle serums, lotions, and potions! Am I the only one that noticed this!? Yay revenge again the wrinkles!
This super concentrated serum has 3 times the level of an injectable-grade hyluronic acid for dramatic filling! Whoa dude. Erase those fine wrinkles and lines with this pistol! Oh by the way it’s not only good at filling lines but it comes in this sweet swirly design that’s kinda prettys.
Honestly, it’s a bit useless for me as I don’t have much in the way of deep lines to fill but I tried it out anyway. The formula is smooth and feels almost silicon-like. If nothing else it makes a fine prep and prime for makeup for me.
It promises that within 3 days you’ll see a visible reduction in deep folds and within two weeks a more youthful fullness to cheeks. And finally within four weeks you’ll see dramatically reduces the look of deep facial folds and hollowness.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by skin. It provides moisture and fullness but it’s production decreases with age which is where Avon Anew Clinical Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum comes into play. The serum is formulated to stimulate filling fiber and helps restore a youthful fullness to face.
Hopefully this is around when the Muse’s face starts to catch up to her age! For now you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the Avon site for the raving reviews from users! Click!
