Japanese Skin Care Haul

Coming to Japan, I’ve always been interested in their skincare and makeup products because of the packaging! I personally am not a makeup fan, however, I still love skin care because they’re important! I did several kinds of research on the most popular skin care products available and decided to give it a try!

Honestly, I’m not happy with the amount of money I spent because, holy, they’re so expensive (accumulated)! All the prices stated below includes tax.

Behold, the products that I bought

The items that I purchased include:

  • DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
  • Shiseido Perfect Whip
  • Cure Natural Aqua Gel
  • Hadalabo Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion
  • Hatomugi Skin Lotion
  • Biore UV Aqua Rich
  • Missha Magic Cushion no.23 (This is a Korean product, but I bought them together with the others, so I won’t include a separate section for this.)
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil & Cure Natural Aqua Gel

The DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (¥1239) is so popular among the reviews so I decided to try it out myself. It indeed works really good and lifts makeup really quickly unlike other cleansers. The price of the product is a bit expensive in my opinion.

The Cure Natural Aqua Gel (¥2500) is an exfoliator which literally has magical powers to exfoliate your skin in seconds after application. I just tested this out yesterday and it really works well. I haven’t noticed any side effects, yet. This product is the most expensive among the things that I bought.

Shiseido Perfect Whip
The rumored foam cleanser

Despite having Shiseido as it’s brand, this foam cleanser is actually quite cheap for around ¥428. It does produce a lot of foam if you put in the effort lol. However, I’m not the type of person who likes to waste time to just create a foam so, in the end, I just use it directly after giving it a little bit of water. My face does feel a bit cleaner, I guess.

Hatomugi Skin Lotion & Hadalabo Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion
These two are moisturizers

The Hatomugi Skin Lotion (¥378) is really cheap for the 500ml amount you can get. It has a watery consistency (hell, it’s literally water) and it doesn’t make your skin feel sticky. It does help my skin a bit from peeling off because of the cold weather. I don’t know how effective this product is yet, though.

This Hadalabo Hyaluronic moisturizer (heck the name’s too long) costs around ¥934 and works wonders. I only need three drops of it to cover my whole face and it really does make your skin moisturized for hours after application. A bit pricey but I guess it’s worth it.

Biore UV Aqua Rich
Lastly, the sunscreen

Sold for ¥838 and is said to have a super effective protection against the sun, moreover, it’s waterproof! You can apply it on both your face and body so it’s really convenient to have. It doesn’t cause a white cast on your skin as well.

That is all for the haul! Sorry to bore you with all the stuff, but I hope you enjoy reading it!

  1. Wow! That is a lot of stuff and sounds so expensive. I stopped taking care of my face and all the pampering treatments. I just don’t have time for it right now, but I may go back to it. I’m feeling pretty jealous of all your pampering items! Maybe I could get my best friend to come over and we can do a spa day! lol Right now, I’m rearranging my living room and kitchen. I got a lot done, but I’m figuring I’m about halfway there. It’s pretty exciting to change the rooms around. I’m hoping to create a bigger atmosphere. 😀 Anyways, have fun pampering yourself! (I’m sure after all that studying, you need time to relax!)

  2. Yup, those prices are… Definitely something, haha! But you’re not always in Japan and skin care is not only important for your skin but must be a great way to de-stress (I’m guessing because I take very poor care of my skin!). I hope you do an update as to how all the products worked out for you after some more time.
