Medical Beauty Research BioChange: Open, Treat, Close

I recently discovered the Medical Beauty Research line of products. Though the name doesn’t sound sexy and their marketing campaign is non-existent, their products really work.

Shu Uemura POREraser Mousse

Shu Uemura POREraser Mousse: Beat the Heat

I always stock up on Shu Uemura when I’m in Asia. Sure, you can buy all of it online (I refill throughout the year this way), but how can I pass on trying out the new products at the beauty counter?
