BeautyandtheCat Sunscreen? Yes Please!

BeautyandtheCat Sunscreen Sun Pearls

UPDATE: Volition is holding a GIVEAWAY of over $200 in skincare for votes through Monday April 3, 2017!  Each vote for Sun Pearls is automatically entered.  Voting is open to all; U.S. residents are eligible for the giveaway.

I (Angela) am obsessed with sunscreen.  Maybe you picked that up when I reviewed 12 Japanese ones in a megapost (all SPF 50+ and PA++++ of course).  But one question always nagged at me: how do I know whether I’ve applied enough to get the actual level of SPF advertised on the bottle?

I dreamed of sunscreen that came pre-measured and perfectly portioned in capsules to make it easy to apply just the right amount.  No guesswork and no measuring spoon required.  (Yep, I resorted to using a 1/4-tsp measuring spoon at one point.)

Well now you can vote for my idea to come to life!  (One vote per email.)

Saved by the Smell: Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream Review

I’ve pollen in love…with Banila Co.’s Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream. The joy factor is off the charts with this honey-scented cream-balm hybrid. You could say that I’ve been honeypotted…and liked it.

One whiff is like a trip to Sweet (Ol)factory.

At press time, I was unable to confirm the nature of the relationship between Miss Flower & Mr. Honey. Rumors are they’re dating but not exclusive as Miss Flower is known to swing both ways and Mr. Honey was recently spotted cavorting with a bear.

Shisei-no – The Ginza’s Trial Kit 

Hey remember when air travel wasn’t such a fking nightmare (where you’re dragged shrieking out of your paid seat in front of the elderly and children) and people actually thought it was glamorous and appealing? No? Well me neither, because it was in the 1950s. Despite bathing in virgin blood to keep my youth and appearance, I can assure you I’m not old enough to remember the 1950s.

While air travel has NEVER been glamorous or appealing, I can attest that first class is well…better than the cattle class. I’m full of insight, I am. Look at this amenity kit they give out in the ANA first cabin:

Behold Shiseido’s The Ginza Skincare Line
