Being chosen to review luxury products in the wide world of blogging is a lovely compliment.

Receiving a box of products you already use, and pay for without hesitation, is like Christmas arriving in Spring!


SK-II is a skin care product line that’s main ingredient is sake, specifically Pitera.


The youthful hands of aged sake brewers were the trigger for the SK-II scientists, something in the sake was responsible.


Seriously, sake.  Needless to say it was not a hard sell to lure in reversecommuter.  KONNICHIWA! (welcome!)


The SK-II facial treatment essence is a crucial part of my daily skin care.  Easy to pat on right out of the shower, it smells yummy and moisturizes without ever feeling heavy.  It’s as moisturizing as slurping coconut water or splashing in the ocean!


After I get dressed – sometimes the process of finding something in the closet of nothing-to-wear can take a loooooong time – yet my skin is still dewy and ready for a moisturizer to seal all that in for the day.  Truly, DEWY is my ultimate goal – I live in New England for pete’s sake!   Sake not Sake (punny right?!)


In a world of multiple step processes for everything we do from hair, skin, even multiple layers of clothing, a one step wonder is a welcome addition.  SK-II, “Arigatou Gozaimasu!” (thank you very much!)


Sarong SO Right!

The next time you find yourself longingly stroking a scarf or sarong

thinking that yet another purchase would be “so wrong” (tee hee)

think lovingly of THE easiest, chicest beach outfit option, and swipe that credit card like a boss! 

T-shirt, espadrilles or flip flops and GO Beach Baby GO!


Saving Face

Gorgeous Sunny Days – WHOOPPIE!


Time to focus on the face.  Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize.


reversecommuter is a big fan of facials but there isn’t always time for Spa-ah-ing.  Enter fantastic home treatments.  Luzern is a fabulous line that has a ridiculously easy moisturizing mask – smear it on for 10+ minutes then rinse and marvel at that baby butt soft skin!


SK-II has another fave of mine, the facial treatment mask, with the convenience of the 5 pack (love that right up until I use the 5th – time to reorder!).
