At TJ Maxx, you can expect that 100% of the time, you won’t need to pay the full “list price”—unlike Sephora, where you typically expect to shell out whatever is listed as the retail price (though it admittedly has a fabulous return policy). I picked up Jeju:en Hyaluronic Acid Sleeping Mask as part of a recent TJ Maxx skin care haul. I had never heard of this brand, but the packaging looked very sleek and polished, and I thought it was worth a try.
My local Ricky’s NYC recently shut down (RIP), so I guess I’ll need to find another neighborhood joint to satisfy my skin care fix. Ricky’s NYC always carried a great mix of luxury and affordable skin care and hair care products there, as well as international imports, including the Japanese sheet mask I’m going to review today. I bought this Pure Smile Pearl Sheet Mask because I was intrigued by the name. At first, I thought it was just a brightening/whitening mask…
Gatsby is a Japanese-based brand that makes hair gels, shave gels, and other men’s grooming products. When I heard about this brand in the past, I always wondered it if was indeed an ode to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel, The Great Gatsby.
