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.

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

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!

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set Review, Photos, Swatches

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set 38

My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.

It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.

It’s gorgeous to say the least.
