SANA Pore Putty BB Cream

A couple of months ago, my guy friend came to visit me.  He stopped over in Hong Kong and I knew I had to get him to bring over some Sasa goodies.  Unfortunately, he’s a guy so he doesn’t have a clue about beauty products so I sent a shopping list to my girl cousin and told her to go crazy and buy me the newest hot items in Sasa.  Amongst the haulage was SANA Pore Putty BB Cream, which I am going to review today.  SANA is a Japanese brand and that’s all I know about them.  As for those who don’t know what BB cream is, it’s short for Blemish Balm, and it’s basically like a tinted SPF moisturiser which has skin regenerating properties {wikipedia}.

My Man Smells Of Ralph Lauren The Big Pony Collection #3 EDT

Perfume is a word I associate with females, but apparently, males wear perfumes too!  I think I’ll stick with the word ‘cologne’ for them.  Anyway, today is rather interesting on The Best Beauty Blog because I’m going to review a male product – Ralph Lauren The Big Pony Collection #3 EDT.  Now, obviously, I am not a man and I don’t wear male fragrances…so why am I reviewing this?  Well, my Husband tested the product and he’s like a typical guy so his review went like this…

Me :  “What do you think of Ralph Lauren The Big Pony Collection #3 EDT?”
Him :  “Yeah, it’s good.”
Me :  “Erm…can you be more descriptive?”
Him :  “Yeah, it smells good.”
Me :  “Is that it?”
Him :  “Yes.  I like it.  What else do you want me to say?”…and turns back to his iPad…

The End.

He is definitely not a male beauty blogger in the making!  Allow me to handle this…

My Current Shower Buddies

I don’t know how it happened but it just did.  Instead of being faithful to one shower product, I started using four shower products – Dove Go Fresh Energise Body Wash Grapefruit & Lemongrass Scent, Bioglo Red Ginseng Body Scrub, Botanics Of Australia Revitalising Body Cleanser* and Medihoney Gentle Body Wash* – every time I shower for different body parts!  The way I see it is that the skin on my body is not the same type all the way so I need to cater to this.  Allow me to introduce you to my current shower buddies…
