Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream Review

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream 3

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream ($48) will possibly be the best moisturizer you run across for drier skin this upcoming Winter season.

Majolica Majorca Pure Play Winter/Holiday 2013 Collection

Majolica Majorca The Little Humming Book IV

Next week the Majolica Majorca Winter/Holiday 2013 Collection launches in Japan and there are quite a few pieces from the collection I have my eye on. I’ve been collecting MJ for a while but I’ve been a little selective with my purchases lately as a lot of it feels very repetitive.

However, products from the Pure Play Winter 2013 Collection look tempting!

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid Review

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid1

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid ($39) is getting a hard launch in Korea at the moment as apparently the product launched to the US market almost exactly as the same time that it did in Korea (rare!). I keep seeing all these videos, photos, etc…on Dr. Jart Korea’s Facebook page and it kinda makes you instantly want to purchase this stuff.

After testing out for a several weeks now I can say this has become and will stay apart of my daily skincare staples. If you have dry skin, you NEED it.


Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser Review

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

It’s true Hada Labo is available in the US now and Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser is one of the first products I tried from the brand!

Hada Labo is known for its famous Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion in Japan and its collection of skincare injected with three kinds of moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid that not only hydrates skin but helps it retain moisture! Hada Labo Tokyo is an extension of the Hada Labo line that is available here in the US now and exclusively at Ulta and

In 2011 Singapore started to get the Hada Labo Skincare Collection so I was surprised it reached our shores so quickly or even at all for that matter. However, this is new packaging so it could easily be overlooked. Japan markets it as a “single drop can lock up an ocean” meaning it can retain moisture easily. Super Hyaluronic Acid is supposedly able to retain 12 liters of water. According to marketing a single bottle of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid is sold every four seconds in Japan. It’s understandable why as Super Hyaluronic Acid has been a staple part of my skin regime for a while now and it is truly a miraculous product.

Let’s take a look at the cleanser!
