SKINFOOD Honey Red Orange Mask Review

I got this a while back, it is an exfoliating scrub from Skinfood. When it first came out there were (i think) 6 types, each one featured key ingredients from around the world that are beneficial to the skin. There was the Acai Berry Mask, Acorn Jelly Mask, Ginseng Mask, Olive Mask, Chocolate Mask, & Honey Red Orange Mask. For some reason I can't find the chocolate mask on the skinfood site anymore but i bought that one too so I will review it soon too.

The packaging is too pretty and is top quality, like most skinfood products it is packaged to look like food. It's contained in a glass jar (see pics) which could pass as jam or honey. I know it looks & smells like it's good enough to eat but try not to.  Although I did get some on my lips accidentally and it had a sweet taste to it, don't eat it, and keep out of reach from children or unsuspecting people that might think it's edible.

VISS IPL Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation

UPDATE: I finally got the VISS and posted my review HERE

Permanent hair removal has always interested me, when I was 11... I shaved my arms O.O  I have no idea why I thought that was a good idea. Anyway the hair grew back with a vengeance and I have been thinking of ways to get it rid of it ever since! I have been thinking of getting professional electrolysis treatment, but it is costly and you need multiple treatments.  

A few years back I discovered at home IPL machines.  VISS IPL definitely caught my eye , I did my research and there has been  mixed reviews (mostly good). It wasn't enough to convince me to take the plunge since its about $600.

Then recently they came out with the
Advanced version which is 2x stronger, and now I am really tempted to get it.  It works best on light skin and dark hair. Visit the website to see if you are a candidate to use it.

Another reason VISS caught my eye is that they have a skin rejuvenation lamp cartridge. It is supposed to remove blemishes and encourage collagen production.

I am hoping to get it soon, I mean who doesn't want smooth hairless legs! I will definitely post reviews and follow ups once I get it!!

Blinging out my Hello Kitty Mirror ~

So I got this Hello Kitty compact mirror a while ago.. well someone gave it to me.
It was one of those gifts when they (friends/family)  know you love hello kitty and they get you any Hello Kitty stuff they can find even the not so official ones lol..

So when I got it I thought it was cute was obviously bootleg XD
I couldn't throw it out though, for a couple of reasons.

1. its from a loved one, 
2. Its still kinda still hello kitty, 
3. I hate wasting and throwing things out I'm a bit of a hoarder >__<

So when i got the rhinestones I decided to bling it out and I am actually really happy with the results.
Im going to do this to all the unofficial HK stuff that has been given to me lol

All I used were some 1.5mm , 2mm, and 4mm rhinestones, E-6000, Orange Stick or stick, craft tweezers , and rhinestone pencil

totally Sparkly and waay cuter now
