Every time I visit a new place, I always have a list as long as my arm of new beauty bits I want to try. Tokyo was no exception and I got stuck straight in shopping along the streets of Japan. I first picked up a lot of Japanese sweets and snacks; flavoured Kit Kats were priority on my shopping list, I came home with two types of Strawberry and Matcha, milk sake flavour and classic original.
As for beauty finds, I headed straight to a department store in search for SK-II. I have read about their essence and just had to get one for myself. SK-II is known for their high prices but powerful products, so buying their products within their home origin made things a lot more affordable.
From SK-II I picked up the Pitera Essence set, which includes their facial treatment clear lotion, essence and treatment mask. The Pitera Essence set is a combination of SK-II bestsellers and retails for $99, which is roughly £69. I will have a full review of the SK-II products soon once I’ve tried them out.
I was also on the hunt for a good cleansing oil because I left mine back in the UK, I came across the cleansing oil from Muji and brought a trial size, so far so good, but I’m not 100% sure on the ingredients it has init. I may not buy this again for the face I can’t seem to find out what ingredients it has in it and I’m very cautious with what ingredients I use these days.
As for makeup, I picked up a bottle of the Koh Gen Do aqua foundation. The shade range was very limited and I ended up picking a shade that is very pink. I will do a full review on this soon, its still on trial.
A few extra pieces I got were some pink cotton buds because why not and some washi tape in various shades and pattens.
