My Beauty Diary Earl Grey Tea & Macaron Sheet Mask Review

My Beauty Diary Earl Grey Tea Macaron Sheet Mask 001

My Beauty Diary kinda took the French pastry route with one of its newer, limited edition collections. One of the pieces of the collection included Grey Tea & Macaron Facial Sheet Masks.

The mask supposedly contains essence from earl grey tea, honestly, earl grey probably runs through my veins already instead of blood since I drink so much of it so I probably don’t need a mask with more of it.

The mask promises to illuminate and clarify to ease dullness.

Does it work?

Sea Breeze UV Cut and Jelly SPF 25 PA++

SeaBreeze UV Cut and Jelly SPF 25 PA++

Remember when you were 14 and you thought Sea Breeze was the cure all for acne and removing dirt and oil? Admit it, how fun was it taking a cotton ball to your face that contained a splash of Sea Breeze? I could sit for hours and swipe my face just to see the gunk that would come off.

Best astringent ever!

It took me much later in my youth to realize all Sea Breeze really accomplished well was drying my skin out like the Sahara Desert but it was fun while it lasted.

Now I won’t touch the stuff no matter how great those cotton balls of gross looked!

But I’m game for Sea Breeze SPF!

Where to Buy Asian Cosmetics? Where To Buy Japanese Cosmetics? Where to Buy Korean Cosmetics?

Imomoko

Ahhh a common question here on Musings!

Where do I buy Asian Cosmetics? Where do I buy Japanese Cosmetics? Where can I buy Korean Cosmetics?

Best place to start?

Imomoko.com

There are any number of great stores online to shop for goodies but one of my biggest recs has to go to Imomoko simply because it’s so reliable and carries and range of cosmetics, skincare, and general goodies from all over Asia. Japanese, Korean, Chinese, etc…you name it and they probably carry it.

They have a rotating inventory with new stock that comes in weekly, they offer free shipping with a minimal purchase, and they are extremely reliable. Whenever I order I get my products within 2-4 days via Priority Mail and they ship products out same day or next day at the latest. That’s another good thing about the E-shop, not having to wait for airmail or pay for expensive airmail shopping charges as the store is domestic, not international.

Imomoko carries popular Japanese brands like Lunasol, Majolica Majorca, Kose, etc…and brands from Taiwan as well like the popular My Beauty Diary Face Mask Collection.

Pricing varies as some products are very inexpensive and close to Asian retail where as other products are a bit higher up compared to what you’d pay in say Japan.

The shop doesn’t have a ton of Korean products but I noticed they recently started adding in products from Etude House!

Overall, I’ve always had a great shopping experience with the store and since I get alot of questions asking what a reliable source for Asian Beauty is I thought I’d recommend it.

It’s a good place to start if you’re new to the Asian Beauty scene!

Shop it at imomoko.com

If you’ve used to the store before do share your experiences with it!

Happy Haulin’!

Fits Japan Attention Please Makeup Keep Mist Review

Fits Japan Attention Please Makeup Keep Mist 001

I wanna be a stewardess.

Stand up at the front of the cockpit door entry, clap my hands, and say “AtenciĆ³n bitches!” Plus I wouldn’t mind swinging myself on top of that snack trolley and rolling down the center aisle!

Sorry got off topic but Fits Japan’s packaging does that to a girl. It’s old school stewardess might make you feel the same way!
