Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil for the Budget Skincare Babes

Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil

Look mom another cheap as chips cleansing oil is arriving at drugstores! Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil ($10.99) joins products like Garnier Cleansing Oil this Spring for the budget skincare babes out there who are looking for a cleansing oil at their sadly lacking local drugstore.

Where as Asian ladies and lads have their pick of a ton of inexpensive cleansing oil the same is unfortunately untrue here in the US but it seems like cleansing oil is going to be a big trend for Spring at US drugstores especially if we see the new L’Oreal Cleansing Oil at some point this Summer.

But now let’s see about this new Eclos Daily Facial Cleansing Oil.

Topshop Gloss Ink Lip Color is Looking Good for Spring 2014

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Topshop Gloss Ink Lip Color

Combining the elements of a gloss with a high shine and the lasting power of a stain, Topshop’s new Gloss Ink Lip Color is looking good for my Spring 2014 looks.

Available in five shades Topshop Gloss Ink Lip Color can be used as a glossy stain for a dramatic look or blotted gently for a more matte, stained finish.

How very Asian of them to create a glossy stain! These are hecka popular from Korean brands like Tony Moly and Etude House so it’s nice to see so many glossy stain formulas joining us here in the US lately.

Don’t write Topshop makeup off, it’s really quite good stuff!

Available now at Topshop stores or online at Nordstrom.com.

When I Grow Up I’ll Have $400 To Spend On Facial Moisturizer


But until than I can salivate over the idea of what exactly Giorgio Armani Crema Nera Extrema Face Serum ($410) does.

Apparently it tames redness, tightens pores, and works its wondrous magic in 7 days so your skin looks smother and more youthful.

IT MAY or may not walk the dog, clean the dishes, and shovel the snow as well.

Someday, not today, but someday I’ll have $400 to spend on facial moisturizer.

Most I’ve ever spend on a face cream? Maybe $80 bucks perhaps a $100….but typically around $50-$65.

Beauty Pet Peeve: The Mini Mascara Dilemna

mini mascara

Samples, can’t avoid them, there everywhere! You know residents of the UK complain so MUCH about how stingy their counters are with beauty samples but I feel like here in the US our counters are overly generous to the point I, dare I say it, throw samples out.

OMG! I’ve committed some sort of mortal sin. Does this mean I go the beauty hell when I die!?

As of late a new trend are deluxe size products. These aren’t really samples and they aren’t really full size but they sure are generous enough that you can get a feel for a product and sometimes get a month or more use out of it!

Super duper!

I personally love mascara samples but I have a beauty pet peeve when it comes to them and actually sort of a dilemma.
