Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser Review

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

It’s true Hada Labo is available in the US now and Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser is one of the first products I tried from the brand!

Hada Labo is known for its famous Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion in Japan and its collection of skincare injected with three kinds of moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid that not only hydrates skin but helps it retain moisture! Hada Labo Tokyo is an extension of the Hada Labo line that is available here in the US now and exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

In 2011 Singapore started to get the Hada Labo Skincare Collection so I was surprised it reached our shores so quickly or even at all for that matter. However, this is new packaging so it could easily be overlooked. Japan markets it as a “single drop can lock up an ocean” meaning it can retain moisture easily. Super Hyaluronic Acid is supposedly able to retain 12 liters of water. According to marketing a single bottle of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid is sold every four seconds in Japan. It’s understandable why as Super Hyaluronic Acid has been a staple part of my skin regime for a while now and it is truly a miraculous product.

Let’s take a look at the cleanser!

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm ($9) was a little lip balm I picked up recently when it was on sale so I got it for around four or so dollars. Having a rather good track record with some of the Body Shop’s lip butters I was quite happy to indulge as I was expecting a shimmery honey flavored gloss.

What did I think?

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of three new matte shades of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow released with the Maybelline Gilded in Gold Holiday 2013 Collection.

I’m not a big matte fan but I adore shades like Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow because they are great essential shades of color you’ll likely reach for daily to prep eyes with. Colors like Milani Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow in Almond Cream, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Navajo and Nude Beach come to mind when I think of simple yet perfect prepping shades or nude eye looks and Maybelline Just Beige fits right in with colors like this. They are simple yet become staples of our everyday eye looks for not only prepping with but also for days we just want a simple eye look without a ton of fanfare.

Take a look!
