I’ve made no secret that I love most everything about Japan. The culture, the people, the beauty, the makeup, the skincare, I love just about everything related to Japan! But I think sometimes with the popularity of Korean beauty here in the US, I tend to sometimes forget to focus on some of the wonderful offerings from Japan!
So, to start Monday off, here’s 5 Things to Love from Japan!
Hada Labo Rohto Goku-jun Hyaluronic Milky Lotion (Review)
If you have dry skin Hada Labo’s Hyaluronic Milk is the way to go. I love the texture and consistency of the milk compared to any of the other Hada Labo products. It’s thicker, creamier, and a little more difficult to get to absorb but it leaves my skin super hydrated!
Kit Kat Maccha Green Tea
I absolutely LOVE the deliciousness of Kit Kat Maccha Green Tea. There’s something so delicious about crispy wafers that have a soft maccha green tea flavored cream sandwiched between them. Yum!
Biore Moisturizing Jelly 4-in-1 Very Moist (Review)
I pray hard for the day that Biore decided to introduce this brilliant essence/emulsion to the US market. The thick jelly texture is a perfect pre-moisturizer prep and it leaves skin smooth, soft, and very well hydrated.
Sana Hadanomy Deep Moisturizing Mist
Hadanomy Deep Moisturizing Mist is one of very favorite facial mists for nearly ten years. I haven’t found a facial mist I like more and believe me I’ve tried plenty. It’s a thicker essence-like facial mist that’s highly hydrating and leave my skin soft, smooth, and prepped for skincare. I can’t rave or recommend it enough!
I don’t know if you consider Yûki Japanese, Canadian, or American. He’s a little of everything. I hate to say this because Joe Cheng really captured my heart but Yûki is one of my favorite actors to play Irie-Kun. He’s isn’t as much as a hard ass, unemotional robot as most actor’s that have taken on the role. Sure, he comes across arrogant as hell but he’s also very passionate. For example, when he starts reciting Kotoko-chan’s love letter at the dinner table and she slaps him. He unexpectedly stands up and yells at her for it and begins to completely lose his cool as he argues and bickers back and fourth with her. Not to mention this is right in front of his parents, her father, and his sibling. It’s very un-Naoki-like behavior. Even Joe Cheng always remained cool and in control when playing Zhi Shu and let’s not even go into details about what a cold fish Lee Dino is when taking on the role (I’m waiting so very, very, very, very patiently for him to simply lose it and snap but I’m nearly half way through Miss in Kiss now and he still has yet to do so and I’m doubting he will!). Yûki gives the role heart but don’t worry, he’ll always be emotionless genius boy in most scenes 🙂 He is most definitely on my things to love from Japan list.
