Goodal got right to the point in naming this BIG POT Moisture Cream. And why not because the giant mouth on this pot is what earns it a thumbs up in my book–making it easier to use to the end than a tube, bottle, or the TonyMoly Wonder Cheese Firming Cream (also a tub but with a narrower mouth).

This post is oh…a few months late…we’d been too busy basking in the full glory of ALL. THE. PRODUCTS gotten for cheap cheap in Paris. The ground floor of Selfridges in London wasn’t bad either, but I may save it for another post.
Behold a pic of Angela (who previously reviewed City Pharma but HAD to come back for MOAR) contemplating Caudalie for breakfast. Pictures ARE NOT allowed in City Pharma. Ahem.
Let’s talk about necks, ba-by! Let’s talk about you and me. -Salt-N-Pepa
I don’t think I’m sticking my neck out when I say that most people overlook theirs. Not enough moisture or anti-aging ingredients, and too many lines from looking down at your phone for Neko Atsume updates. (When will I spot Guy Furry?!)
Well, purpletale’s neck cream may be just what giraffe-ter. Continue reading “Necks and the City: purpletale Once Upon a Neck Cream Review”
While frolicking with Angela in Flushing, Queens, in July, we came across The Face Shop which had the ENTIRE line of The Face Shop x KaKao Friends collection. Not one to hesitate at grabbing ANYTHING cyyyute and yellow, I was immediately drawn to the below.
And yes, I am posting something I saw in July for TWO reasons: I spent July-September in Europe with crappy wi-fi. And I just actually finished the entire tube of this, so the experiment is complete.

TonyMoly Wonder Cheese: Because it’s a wonder that this isn’t cheesy at all.
And thank goodness! Instead it smells like the yummiest vanilla confetti cake. The scent is strong but fades in minutes unless you’re really sniffing.
Will you be in NY on Wed. August 24, 2016? Then drop everything and get yourself to the 2nd Annual Peach & Lily Sample Sale!
Read Renee’s account of last year’s sample sale to prepare. I’m still working through my haul from last year!
Another couple of months and another sweet work surpurrrrrrise from PinkSeoul! The July/August PLUS box that was sent to us for review contained a couple of items that tickled many of our viewers: the Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher from Skinfood and the Benton Fermentation, among others.
Behold the PinkSeoul July/August bi-monthly Subscription Box:
Function of Beauty is a new company specializing in personalized shampoo and conditioner, customized to your hair type, goals, and tastes. We now have customized prescription skincare and customized K-beauty boxes, so why not haircare? When Function of Beauty offered us a complimentary set to try, I excitedly agreed to give it a go.
The premise is simple: describe your hair type and pick the qualities you seek in a shampoo and conditioner (effects, scent, and color), and in a few days, receive the bottles in the mail.
As far as personalized beauty products go, Function of Beauty is a steal. $26 for a custom shampoo & conditioner set (8 oz. ea.) with free U.S. shipping? Yes please! Jan. 2018 Update: It’s now $36 for a set. Definitely a splurge, but we’d still repurchase.

September 2016 UPDATE: Ichimi Cosme changed its name to Ume Cosme. Instagram and Yelp links have been updated.
Today’s post is a closer look–in pictures–at Japanese and Korean beauty store Ichimi Cosme in New York’s East Village. That link will take you to Renee’s first look at the store, and Ichimi Cosme is also on Instagram and Yelp.
Ichimi is located at:
318 E. 9th St
New York, NY 10003
(between 1st and 2nd Ave.)
What I love about Ichimi Cosme is that it offers a ton of Japanese beauty brands that weren’t available before in NY (at least not as far as we two shopaholics knew). Los Angeles (including the Asian suburb of San Gabriel Valley) has long had tons of Japanese offerings. (I’ve posted shopping guides on LA shopping and specifically Takashima in the SGV before.)

The health food store called Westerly on 8th Avenue takes your whole paycheck with just one aisle of its organic, hand grown, hand raised, stroked, massaged and coddled products, and that’s just the lettuce. However, I go during lunch time anyway becase there’s actually NOTHING good to eat sometimes in Hell’s Kitchen, New York. True story.
On a whim, I once picked up Earth Science Naturals skin tonic spray. The good people of Earth Science Naturals saw this and noticed. Kristen and the Earthscience Naturals Team sent us a ginormous box of their new Ceramide Care shampoos and conditioners to try. I received a massive box of 8 full sized shampoos and conditioners to the questioning looks of my boss.
Behold one of the Ceramide Care Shampoo & Conditioner sets:
