Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream Review, Photos, Swatches

Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream 1

Rohto, creator of all things in the eye drop arena. Not a fond fan of eye drops myself to be honest, too squeamish to have anything liquid-y hanging out around my eye area. It’s one thing to take a shower, take a swim, or get caught in the rain but it’s entirely another to voluntarily tip your head back and proceed to have drops of liquid poured into your eyes, yeah, not cool!

Rohto’s Japanese branch also has a collections of lotions and potions one of which is the new Rohto Suppin Rin Night Eye Cream. Me being all about good moisture for that pesky dry area under my eyes was all about trying this out.

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion Review, Swatches, Photos

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion 1

This is kinda my little follow up review to the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist I recently reviewed for you. The Hadanomy Collection features a mist, lotion (toner), and moisturizer. Today I have the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Lotion to share with you! Asian skincare commonly refers to toner as lotion so don’t get too confuddled here as this is indeed a Toner not a Lotion as per the name.

B&C Laboratories Sony CP Peach Hand Cream and Lip Balm Review, Photos, Swatches

BC Laboratories Sony CP Peach Hand Cream and Lip Balm 1

I was thinking hard about it, no worries, haven’t shorted any circuits here….and I realized I apply hand cream just as chronically and compulsively as I do lip gloss.

Seriously.

Any chronic hand cream appliers out there? Is there a club? Can we get moral support for the compulsion? Is there anyway to stop when presented with kawaii fruit shaped lip balms and hand creams from Japan?

Why do they tempt us?

Lavshuca Star Decoration Eyes GN1 BR-1 Review, Photos, Swatches

Lavshuca didn’t go the coffret route this year for the Holidays which was a bit disappointing. Nor did they go for a special palette release. They did however release a brand new selection of eyeshadow palettes. This is an interesting release for the brand considering they reserve palette releases for the Spring and only release a special palette or two or a coffret for the Holidays.

Lavshuca is a drugstore brand that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike findings in a US drugstore, Japanese drugstore makeup is of high quality, incredibly pigmented, and just stunning, packaging wise.

Lavshuca Star Decoration Eyes GN1 BR 1 7

For Winter, Lavshuca released a total of five shades of their new Star Decoration Eyes Palettes.

Let’s have a look!

Biore Moisture Lotion Moisture (Cream In), Fresh (Cool), Moisture Review

Biore Moisture Lotion Moisture Cream In Fresh Cool Moisture 7

I guess I’m a little weird but I follow the Kao Group very closely in Japan since I prefer their Biore releases over the ones that can be found in the US.

A recently Japanese release of new Biore Moisture Lotion intrigued me and I asked a friend to pick me some up. Shipping was a bit yak so I ended up telling her to skip it and hauled them from Adam at AdamBeauty (thanks Adam, love your shipping rates).

“Lotion” isn’t actually the term we’d use to describe what actually is toner. However, most Asian countries refer to toner as lotion so not to be confused here the Biore Moisture Lotion is, indeed, a toner.

Jump ahead for a peek!
