I’ve been a long time devoted customer of Paula’s Choice – I just checked my account, my first order from her was in 2011! My favourite products from her are the chemical exfoliants – they just work and are well-priced. So what prompted me to try something else?
I was going to make this post a “journey of discovery” and keep it a mystery on whether the MUJI is a dupe or not for the Shiseido, but I’m just going to come out and tell you that YES, the MUJI Cut Cotton in WHITE is indeed a viable DUPE to the cult favourite – and pricey – Shiseido Facial Cotton.
I’ve been using both MUJI and Shiseido cottons interchangeably for the past month to get a true sense of how similar or dissimilar they are to each other.
Here’s another item that I bought in Japan last June – I decided to open up the THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil and bypass some other cleansing oils in my stash because it contains no preservatives and I didn’t want it to spoil.
This product has a lot of hype around it, and I wanted to see for myself how a luxury cleansing oil performs. I’ll spoil the review here now because you’ll notice that the title mentioned TWO cleansing oils – the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil came to the rescue when the THREE oil failed to deliver. 😦 I have a question for you – when people ask if you want to hear the bad news first or the good news first – which do you normally say? I always want to hear the bad news first…
I didn’t really know how to name this post – but basically, I’ve been using two new nighttime face creams recently. The first one, I started using and reacted badly to, and the second was to the rescue.
You probably know that I already love the MUJI skincare items that I’ve tried, so I was completely in my element at the most recent MUJI Canada Open House which was to showcase their skincare.
Similar to previous MUJI Open House sessions, it was a small intimate affair which I much prefer. 🙂 We learned about the different MUJI skincare lines with a focus on the Sensitive Skin range (my favourite!) and we all received a selection of products to try for ourselves. Here’s what we learned, and what we received.
I did not select the specific items – I described a few of my likes and dislikes, along with my skin type and concerns – and left it up to Nuworld Botanicals to surprise me! 😀 Today I’m reviewing the first item that I’ve been testing for the past month, the Cold-pressed Organic Sea buckthorn & Jojoba oil:
If you’ve been a reader of this blog, you’ll know that I love oils for all sorts of beautifying aspects: cleansing, hydrating and protecting. So how does this oil from Nuword Botanical stack up against other oils I’ve tried?
I’d never heard of Jolse until I started blogging. Then I came across the amazing Fifty Shades of Snail blog, which showcases Asian skincare. She often talks about Jolse.com and then I started noticing other blogs mentioning the site so I decided to order a few things to test it out.
Jolse is a Korean beauty site that offers free shipping and credits for every order. I got $3 credit just for signing up, which I was able to apply toward my first order. There are often sales and special kit deals featured on the site.
