Oh, and it foams and gets all your makeup off too. If that sounds like something you need for Christmas, then put Korres Wild Rose Cream Cleanser ($32) on the list.  It smells like roses, it’s creamy but it lathers, so it gets into your waterproof mascara, waterproof eyeliner, long-wearing foundation and just takes it […]

I Got a Dyson Hair Dryer

I’ve written about Dyson on the blog before.  I got to try their vacuum cleaners out before buying them, and guess what, I loved them so much that I kept buying them after I gave the loaner back.  What I love the most is that they’re super light so that I can pick up the […]
