L’Oreal Skin Genesis Micro-Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes Review

The Muse has tricked herself into believing that Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Pads actually do something for her skin!

Ha!

Don’t you dare sit there and not admit that sometimes you have a product that you know doesn’t work but you use it anyway because you’ve somehow convinced yourself it’s the awesome! Don’t lie…I’ll know if you’re lying….I’m the Muse after all! In this case I’ve convinced myself that Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Pads are the the bee’s knees…..but deep down inside I know they are junk…but I like to illusion myself since I have a big old jar full that I really want to get through! By the way I didn’t even know bee’s had knees! Awesome! Anyway what was I
saying…..

Oh yea…so I replaced my Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Pads with L’Oreal Skin Genesis Micro-Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes…why does this stuff have to have such a freaking long name…god….

Anyway……for a week I switched over to L’Oreal Skin Genesis Towelettes and I gotta say I’m kinda digging them! Ok first off…they do only an ok job of removing makeup so don’t get too excited. They remove makeup quite well but my mascara not so much or my heavy duty eye makeup…but the good news is I’m not interested in using these to remove my makeup anyway!

Now what I really like about these is the smoothing technique. Each towelette is quilted, pre-moistened, and quite a nice, large size. In the morning I use these to tone my face and resurface. They work fantastic at softening my dry skin, removing flaky skin, and creating a nice, moist surface for my makeup. Lucky enough they aren’t sticky and so far they haven’t dried my skin out plus they are heaps cheaper than Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Pads.

If you’re looking for something you can use to prime your face prior to makeup while resurfacing your skin and creating a nice, dewy finish you might want to check these out! I’m kinda digging them and think I’ll repurchase them again after I’m through with the 25 pack I have!

Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalize Conditioning Body Lotion Review

The Muse has a soft spot in her heart for Crabtree & Evelyn goodies so when she got her hands on a new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Conditioning Body Lotion she couldn’t help but feel a bit excited!

Picture+038

The new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations line up combines the benefits of 100% essential oils and natural ingredients to create a relaxing blend for both your skin and your senses. The body lotion I received carries the tart scent of lemons with a heavy twang of coriander for a sensory wake you up scent! I actually wish this was a hand lotion as the scent would be ideal for my hands or even for hair. It’s quite invigorating and fresh smelling. You’ll be happy to know that this contains no parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance and many other additives that most body lotions include in their formulas. The lotion glides on well and absorbs beautifully leaving behind the tart sweetness of lemons with just the right amount of coriander. You might think coriander in a body lotion is a bit strange but it goes very well with the lemons creating a rather nice vibrant blend.

Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations comes in three formulas, Relaxation, Revitalize, and Purify. So far the Revitalize scent is really something I enjoyed trying out…I think I’ll head into the store to try the other blends and see what else is available in the Revitalize range!

Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations are worth checking out for yourself! So far I’m really enjoying the body lotion! Check out www.crabtree-evelyn.com for further info about this new collection!

Anyone try these?

Love ‘em?

Any favorites from Crabtree & Evelyn?

Monday Blues

Morning guys!

I’m having a super busy Monday morning and everything that can go wrong…Murphy’s Law… is going wrong.

I’m quite happy that I had such a ridiculously lazy day yesterday which made me nice and well rested to deal with my nutty Monday! It’s been a while since I slept in so I did just that and enjoyed re-watching some of Sweet 18 on DVD and just generally vegetating. I can’t remember the last time I just stayed home on a Sunday and lazed!

How was your weekend?

I’ll be posting up new reviews shortly but I’m a little behind getting to them! Keep your eyes peeled though as they’ll be here soon. I’m very backed up with e-mail so if you e-mailed I do apologize if I haven’t replied. I have about 800 some odd e-mails in my box at the moment and catching up is a nightmare to say the least. If you need an answer right away to whatever you may have e-mailed just comment and I’ll reply quicker or twitter me! I also have a few comments to get to from last week and this weekend, I’ll get to those soon!

Just wanted to update you for today and hope you aren’t missing your daily dose of Musings too much!

Much love and hugs from your Muse!

Happy Monday!

Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick Review, Swatches, and FOTD

Remember the Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick I was telling you about? Turns out it’s something rather special! I do so highly suggest checking these out for yourself from Avon as they are truly good and inexpensive to boot!

Each tube is $4.99 USD and contains a beautiful sparkling shade of highly moisturizing and pigmented lip color. Who can’t love that price? The shades all contain a healthy dose of gold shimmering flecks which ends up intensifying the color of the lipstick and making your lips gleam and shine! Gorgeous!

I tried two shades but I’m heading back for more shortly as truly they are gorgeous. The two colors I tried were Ruby in Gold and Golden Wine. Ruby in Gold is a beautiful deep peach a la my favorite MAC Lipglass Pink Grapefruit (I know, I know you’re tiring of hearing about Pink Grapefruit already!). Now Gold Wine had me terrified when I first seen it! The shade takes vampy up a few notches to say the least. In the tube it’s a deep, dark almost black cherry shade….terrifying….but it applies maroon with tiny flecks of gold! Gorgeous! If you ask which shade I like more I couldn’t possibly say as they are both beautiful.
