[Review] Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion

Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion Review

Bifesta Brightening Cleansing Lotion Review:

I had once tried a deluxe sample of this without  knowing it was this product. It is one of the most famous cleansing waters around (although it’s called a lotion it’s really not very lotion-like). Without knowing I had already tried this once, I got my hands on the Hello Kitty version of it!

I wasn’t originally a big Hello Kitty fan but when I went to a place called Hello Kitty Island (think of it as a Hello Kitty museum) I started valuing her for all that she has done for women. I mean, I already liked her friend Cinnamoroll, so it’s not that I disliked the cat! I just didn’t care much about the cat itself.

Regardless, this Hello Kitty version is exclusive to Korea (for some reason) but the product inside is the classic Bifesta “blue bottle” brightening cleansing lotion of the same name (also known as bright up cleansing lotion).

Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Review

Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil Review:

A Sephora clerk used this product on me when I asked her to create a daily K-Beauty regiment for me to follow that was 4-5 steps. This was the first step in the regiment, which was for cleansing my skin and removing makeup. It serves as the “double cleanse” step that one takes in a K-Beauty routine. This was one of my favorite items she used on me during the service and I purchased it because I loved the texture and scent.

Kracie Hadabisei Facial Mask Clear Whitening Review

Kracie Hadabisei Facial Mask Clear Whitening Review:

After hearing about this brand of masks here and there, and almost asking my brother to buy it for me while he was overseas in Thailand (there’s a store filled with Japanese goodies there!), I decided to take the plunge when I saw it at my local drugstore instead. As I’m less prone to impulse purchases, this did take me a few trips before I gave in. Was it worth it, though?

[Review] Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner | Jet Black

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Black Review

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Jet Black Review:

I first bought this eyeliner in Hong Kong back in 2014. I bought it because it’s cheap (it’s cheap everywhere though) and there was a good promotion. Not to mention I love anime and manga, and if I could become the heroine from The Rose Of Versailles with super long eyelashes, then you bet your pants I would!

I will spoil you now and tell you I love it, and have been using it ever since (only used one other eyeliner in between). But you need to know all the good and bad points of it, so, don’t ignore nor buy it just because me (and lots of other people) love it!

[Review] Candy Doll Lip Gloss in Cotton Candy

Candy Doll Lip Gloss in Cotton Candy Review

Candy Doll Lip Gloss in Cotton Candy Review:

My friend recommended Candy Doll products to me, as she was a huge fan of Japanese cosmetic brands that evoked a doll or Gyaru-like look. Japanese model Tsubasa Masuwaka, a popular face for Popteen Magazine and many ads, endorsed the brand, as she evoked the ideal girly beauty of the Candy Doll ideal.

I picked up this lip gloss in a local Japanese skincare and beauty shop after seeing the display of Candy Doll cosmetics. Because the color was fairly neutral with a slight pop of pink, I purchased a tube to try out.

Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner Review

Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner Review:

Having delved into Asian skincare/cosmetics for more than a year now, it was inevitable that I’d try my hand at Asian haircare as well. And surely enough, as I found myself running out of my usual Western-brand conditioner, I decided to pick up a conditioner from a brand I’d been eyeing a few weeks prior as it seemed a safe choice coming from a relatively reputable Japanese company.

Isehan Sunkiller Perfect Strong Moisture SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Isehan Sunkiller Perfect Strong Moisture SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

Promising a light texture with no drying alcohols in sight, and as I was searching for a waterproof sunscreen – or, at least, something that is more likely to withstand my country’s insane humidity levels – I decided to pick up this pocket-sized sunscreen from my local drugstore/pharmacy, hoping for the best. With some promising claims and a reasonable price, I admittedly glossed over my usual “check the reviews!” step, and dove right in. So, how did it fair?

Rohto Mentholatum Melano CC Intensive Anti Spot Essence Review:

I have been battling with acne since my childhood, and on top of having to deal with annoying, painful, unsightly blemishes, I also have to deal with the dreaded aftermath: Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, also known as PIH. After I discovered vitamin C products and their abilities to fight PIH I decided to incorporate them permanently in my routine. So how does this little tube perform against that dreaded PIH? Let’s find out.

Lululun 7 Days Brightening Mask Review

Lululun 7 Days Brightening Mask Review:

When I visited Japan late last year, I grabbed the opportunity to stock up on beauty products like sheet masks and make-up products. One of the products I grabbed was the 7-day Lululun Masks (in white). It was highly praised in Japan, so I thought it was worth a try.
