Kose Kose Cosmeport Precious Garden Hand Cream Honey Peach Fall 2014 Bodycare Handcare 1

.

Precious Garden caught my attention in a similar way Aroma Resort did as I found the look of the line fresh and colorful. Obviously there was no guarantee that the products themselves would be just as appealing, but I did decide to try Hand Cream in Honey Peach. I am very glad that I did.

Biteki.com has posted information on and an image of THREE‘s limited-edition Sakuraism collection, which will be released in Japan in spring 2016. The collection celebrates the beauty of cherry blossoms and the arrival of spring.

The collection includes:

– Whisper Gloss for Eye (2 new shades, ¥3300)
– Cheeky Chic Blush (2 new shades, ¥3000)
– Shimmering Lip Jam (3 new shades, ¥3000)
– Nail Polish (4 new shades, ¥1800)
– Sakuraism Aroma Skin Soap (80g, ¥4000)
– Sakuraism Aroma Bath Serum (150ml, ¥6000)
– Sakuraism Aroma Hand Cream (50g, ¥3000)

.

According to Biteki.com, there will be no fixed launch date in Japan. The (very romantic) idea is that the release dates of the collection will match the cherry blossom seasons throughout Japan. The collection is expected to be launched in Kyushu first. (Kyushu is Japan’s southernmost main island and where THREE has its southernmost physical retail points in Japan.)

According to this blog post from Glam.jp, the collection will be released in Kyushu in mid-March and it will also be released in Thailand and Taiwan on March 3rd.

L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Perfector Spring Summer 2015 Skincare 1

.

In April, L’Occitane revamped its Pivoine Flora range and extended the Pivoine lineup with the new Pivoine Sublime skincare range. As far as I know, this is the second renewal of the original Paeonia range, which was released in 2010. (Read my review of Paeonia Eau de Toilette here.) Today I will be reviewing three items from the Pivoine Sublime range (Skin Perfector, Perfecting Cream and CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream) and the relaunched Pivoine Flora Hand Cream.

Paul and Joe Nail Treatment Oil Jill Stuart Treatment Nail Essence Summer 2013 2014 Handcare Nailcare 1

Back in 2008, I posted about the cute nail and cuticle oils I had. As I said, they are not absolute necessities for me and I don’t use them on a daily basis. However, I did get two more in the last couple of years. (Yes, I still like the cute-looking ones……)

Paul and Joe Hand Cream R Holiday 2014 Bodycare 1

.

Earlier, I talked about Paul & Joe‘s Makeup Collection 2014 in 001 Little Star and Pressed Powder T in 001 Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for holiday 2014. Today I will share my thoughts on Hand Cream R from the collection.

The floral print on Paul & Joe’s Face & Eye Color CS in 073 42nd Street & Lipstick C in 072 SoHo from the fall 2011 makeup collection is among my favorite prints from the brand, so I was excited to see it on Hand Cream R from the fall/winter 2014 bodycare and fragrance collection. (In the UK, the three Hand Creams are part of the holiday 2014 collection. The two Fragrance Hair & Body Mists are not available in the UK).
