SENSAI Cellular Performance HydraChange Series Preview

March 10, 2010

I hope you all survived your Tuesdays better than I did – I’d have to say that even for a Tuesday, mine was pretty abysmal.  On the bright side though, the work week is almost half over and I’ve got a seriously amazing new skincare line to introduce you to.

Sensai’s new Cellular Performance HydraChange Series (launching in mid-March), containing a unique hyaluronic acid cocktail, seals in moisture, smooths skin’s appearance, and best of all, provides an immediate water-like hydrating sensation upon contact. 

I’ve been playing around with two items from this launch, the HydraChange Mist ($75) and the HydraChange Cream ($175) and my mother will be the first to admit that my skin is looking pretty amazing lately (and if you know Korean mothers, you’ll know they never compliment you on anything, especially your skin).  I haven’t broken out once in the two months since I switched my skincare over to HydraChange and my skin hasn’t been dry despite the ridiculously cold we’ve been having, but most amazing for me is the fact that my pores seem to be significantly tighter (although I can’t be sure this is what brought about that change – I think it might have something to do with the daily cleanser I’m using as well – either way I’m seriously amazed and so so ecstatic since I’ve tried pretty much every pore-tightening product known to man to no avail).  I’ve got to run off to work soon so this is all the info you’re getting today, but you can expect review of the products soon!

Availability: Launching in-store at Bergdorf Goodman in mid-March.  Pre-orders available via kanebobg@gmail.com.  Available at Kanebo.com in April.

Sneak Peek at the Upcoming ABS Giveaway (It’s a Doozy)!

January 7, 2010


To celebrate the upcoming (I hope – honestly just haven’t been able to find the time) launch of the ABS forum (yay!) I’ve put together what I think to be the best-ever ABS giveaway ~ a package of great products hand-picked and purchased by yours-truly and worth over $200! I picked up a few products I love, some I’ve been wanting to try and some I just knew you’d all want. And while the giveaway itself won’t be up for another few weeks, I figured you’d all enjoy getting a peek at what’s coming! Check out the giveaway revealed in all its non-blurry glory after the jump =P.


I hope this post has got you at least semi-excited for what’s to come, and I hope that when the forum launches you’ll all take a little time from your busy schedules to pop by and say hello!

L’Oreal 2010 Sneak Preview: Go 360˚ Clean Cleanser with Scrublet!

December 16, 2009

L’Oreal Paris’ new Go 360˚ Clean is an innovative new cleanser collection which comes paired with the Scrublet cleansing tool that goes beyond clean for an extraordinary pore-by-pore daily cleansing experience. Pores look smaller and skin is cleaner, smoother and softer.

More info and photos after the jump!

Go 360˚ Clean includes L’Oreal’s Scrublet cleansing tool, a super-soft, flexible cleansing disc that applies the collection’s cleanser with 500 extra-supple touch pints that gently glide across the skin, activating the cleanser formulas on contact to create a high-foaming lather. This rich lather penetrates into the pores, unclogging them and gently removing traces of dirt, oil and makeup in every last pore, crease and crevice.

Go 360˚ Clean offers a complete range of cleanser calibrated for ideal performance with the Scrublet:
The Scrublet pops right into and out of the custom-made bottle for convenient storage, and even comes with a suction cup allowing you to stick the Scrublet onto your bathroom mirror or tile. I’ve been using the Deep Facial Cleanser for a few weeks now and my skin is looking pretty fabulous if I do say so myself, and my pores are noticeably tighter looking. Full review to come soon!

Availability: L’Oreal Paris Go 360˚ Clean will be available February 2010 at www.lorealparis.com and chain drug, food and mass market retailers for $6.99.

Join Me On a Sneak Peek Into the Victoria’s Secret Offices and Holiday 2009 Releases!

October 28, 2009


This post is long overdue and all of these items have already launched, but a few months back I had the opportunity to check out the Victoria’s Secret headquarters and to preview the upcoming (now currently available) holiday releases. I figured you’d enjoy having a peek at the photos, and of course all the products!

I was so impressed by everything, particularly the fragrances. Everything smelled just heavenly and I had an absolutely amazing time ~ which is saying quite a bit considering this starting at an ungodly hour on a rainy morning.


See a million more photos and a few snippets of information after the jump! Oh and you also get to see the PJ’s I’ve been living in since attending this event =P.


This photo showcases the Velvet Amber Blackberry fragrance collection ~ the creators of this fragrance said that the scent is meant to evoke the sensuality of velvet – it’s warmth and the wonderful plush feeling it has. I never thought you could capture Velvet in a bottle, but this really comes pretty close! I absolutely loved the packaging for this line as well – so rich, so luxe, so elegant!

Oh forgot to mention – please keep in mind that a good majority of these products are in sample packaging and may or may not be accurate representations of the actual packaging.


One of my personal favorite collections amongst the holiday launches was this Peace Love Hope fragrance release from the PINK line. The scent is comprised of green apple and honeysuckle and it’s young, fresh, fruity and just simply delightful! LOVE everything from this line!


Victoria’s Secret also created some adorable holiday goodies that make ideal stocking stuffers as they’re cutely packaged and very affordable. Plus many of them even double as holiday ornaments!





Okay so these are the pajamas I’ve been living in since returning from this event. They were included in the goody bag and they’re seriously cozy, comfy, soft and just downright cute! I kind of feel like a Christmas elf in these, but in a good way.


And who doesn’t want to check out a bowl of beribboned underwear? I thought this photo would make a nice closer for this post. Hope you enjoyed joining me on my visit to the Victoria’s Secret corporate offices!
