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.
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
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
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
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!
