My BFF brought me back this Skinfood “Lettuce & Cucumber Water Drop Essence” from Korea. This brand has been around since 1957 with their natural line of products based on fruits and vegetables, basically. It didn’t seem that odd to me, as I had used the Burt’s Bees Wild Lettuce Complexion Soap a few years ago, before it was discontinued. (*shakes fist impotently).

Anyway, this essence isn’t heavy enough to be a moisturizer, nor light enough to be a serum. It kind of reminds me of a primer, really. It’s good for really dry skin days, or after too much sun. It just seems to put more fluid in your skin to rehydrate, than to regularly moisturize, in my opinion. It has a really light scent and I keep it in the fridge so I get a cool shot of it when I apply it after a day outside.

Have you ever had a chance to try anything from Skinfood? Or even a product based on lettuce before?

Foreign Beauty Friday: Vov Color Song Eye Wave

*I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

This weeks Foreign Beauty comes to us from Vov Cosmetics in Korea. This is the “Color Song Eye Wave”, in 4 – Dreaming Gray, Dreaming Gold, Dreaming Mocha and Dreaming Brown. Mine came with individual sponge applicators, but it looks like it now comes with one wide brush for sweeping application of all of the colors at the same time.

Have any of you ever heard of, or tried, the Color Song shadows?

Foreign Beauty Friday: Bioderma Matriciane Serum

*I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

Remember yesterday when I talking about cleansing waters and I reminded you guys of my romance with my Bioderma cleansing water? Well, I thought I would let you know that they also have a vast skincare line, too.
6815037113 64cf071d30 Foreign Beauty Friday: Bioderma Matriciane Serum 6746314621 c0128b6c33 Foreign Beauty Friday: Bioderma Matriciane Serum The Bioderma Matriciane Serum: Intensive Regeneration Matrix Concentrate has such a long name that it has absorbed into your skin before you can finish saying it.

This little French beauty says that it “restores the metabolic cycles of the skin, and revitalises it each day with new energy”. Hell, I need to put this all over my body, so that I can get up every day if it can work that miracle, right?

Here’s another thing I like about this serum. It specifically states that it “accompanies and optimises the effectiveness” of aesthetic procedures, ie., peels, injections and lasers. So *that’s* how those French beauties stay so lovely… icon wink Foreign Beauty Friday: Bioderma Matriciane Serum 6815094371 903e9cde66 b Foreign Beauty Friday: Bioderma Matriciane Serum

Foreign Beauty Friday: L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadow

*I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

I’ve been holding out on you guys. I’ve been hoarding this little gem for quite a while now and am glad to say that these L’Oreal Color Infaillible eyeshadows finally made it over here.

Now, before you guys start thinking that I don’t check my spelling in the title, let me remind you that this is “foreign” beauty – as in this one came to me from France. (*of course, that didn’t stop me from spelling it the Americanized “infallible” everywhere else before I caught the difference on the lid.)

The texture is a cross between a cream and a pigment, with the color pay-off of a pigment, especially when used over a primer.

These are available in a range of colors at your local mass market stores of choice for around $8USD.

Have any of you already grabbed one (or more) of these?

I sent family on a hunt for this Hissyfit Vanilla Almond Orange Grapefruit scented SPF 30+ body lotion when they were in Australia. How could I not? I knew it would smell amazing (*it does) and is a body lotion sunscreen. I had to have it.

I also love Hissyfit’s motto that is printed on all of their products: “You should know by now that you are a goddess.” It’s true.

You don’t have to send anyone half way around the world to pick up this Australian gem – you can pick it up on Dermstore.com now.
