There is no reason anyone needs to buy as much stuff as I did, unless they really did their research on cosmetics. In my case, I did TONS of research on the cosmetics I bought and the rest...well...I bought it just because I wanted to. I didn't include the little things like the charms, clothes for my niece, keychains, and food I got. I will go into detail for cosmetics and co-worker gifts.
Lets see what I bought!
I've read so much on this face cleanser I knew I had to get it. Have you ever tired lancomes creme radiance facial cleanser? It's $50 that leaves your face feeling squeaky clean. Well Perfect Whip makes your face feel squeaky clean at a low cost of $4 (for a small bottle). I got this deal 10 bottles for $25 I believe.
Hadalabo Gokujyun & Shirojyun
When I did my research, I heard hada labo was one of the best cosmetic drugstore companies to use for moisturizing. The white bottle (gokujyun) helps with hydrating and the blue bottle (shirojyun) is supposed to help with whitening. I have bad hyper pigmentation on my cheeks so I can't wait to see what my results will be in 4 weeks!
Detclear Bright &Peel Fruits Peeling Jelly
I believe this is supposed to exfoliate and remove dead skin on a dry face. You're only supposed to use this 1-2 times per week. It makes my face feeling nice and smooth right after. After I use this, I use the Perfect Whip to cleanse my face and I feel rejuvenated!
Perfect White Clay
This is one of the products I have no idea what it does, BUT I've seen lots of people speak about this on videos. I decided to buy it to try out whatever it does.
I remember when I went to Japan last year, I tried the peel off mask on my nose and it was very hard to get off without water. The bottle on the left is a peel off, and the bottle on the right is clay. I think The bottle on the right is supposed to be something like glam glow's mask that makes dots on the areas where there's lots of sebum and you wash it off.
Evita Beauty Whip Soap
The only reason I bought this is because when you push the product out, it comes out as a flower shape!
Suisai Beauty Clear Powder
This tiny little box was about $20 USD. It comes with tiny individual boxes filled with powder to wash your face! It's meant for traveling, which is why I bought it. Unfortunately I was not able to try it on the plane ride home because I wasn't allowed to open the bag it was in until we left Japan. All you need to do is pour the powder onto your hands and mix a little water with it. It turns into an on the go facial cleanser!
Whitening Face Mask
I got two things from Japan that are focused on whitening. Not because I'm dark and I want to get lighter, but because I have hyper pigmentation on my cheeks that are very noticeable. I've never had anything like this on my face before, so I'm hoping this face mask will help do the trick.
Tsubaki Oil Perfection Hair Oil
Silicone Mask 2 Way
This is works like "icy hot" and will help with sore muscles and pain. I didn't use this specific brand while in Japan, but I've heard its one of the best shippu for pain. My back and calves hurt pretty often so I'm excited to give this a try!
When I'd go to Japan as a child, my grandma would always bring this stuff back. Even when her sisters would visit from Japan, they would always bring this back for us. It's an anti-itch cream that works WONDERS! Whenever I have an ant or mosquito bite, I immediately put this on and it cools the itch. However, this product is illegal in America.
I probably spent most of my money on these body wipes, mainly the Gatsby brand. These are mainly used in the summers in Japan for wiping off sweat and cooling down. Since It's summer year round in Hawaii and I sweat just by existing, I had to buy TONS of these. I bought about 12 packages of Gatsby wipes, two Seabreeze wipes and two Refresh wipes. My favorite is the Gatsby wipes because they leave your skin feeling menthol-y.
Hope you enjoyed this huge haul!
