Japanese Beauty Products

A little break from travel photos for a look at what filled up my suitcase.
Starting with firming creams then shampoos followed by hair care/perfumes and body lotions.
I ditched a lot of the packaging for some of this stuff to save on room & weight in my luggage. Helpful tip I guess?
I bought a new body roller. An upgrade from my previous plastic ones but not quite as nice as the original ReFa. I was going to buy the ReFa but it’s $250 and I just felt so silly trying to justify the cost. This one costs about 1/5 instead and I’m really loving it. I’ve been using it every night to counteract swelling.
This is essentially Nivea’s state-side discontinued “My Silhouette” Happy I found it.
I used 1/3 of the Angel Heart Hair Wash at the hotel. Mostly to get it weighing a little less. It re-locks for easy transport! It’s a pretty OK shampoo. Nothing special but didn’t weigh my hair down & smells very lovely!
Hair spray I used while on my trip. ケープ Free Arrange. It’s OK. No strong odor and has a less stiff, “free” hold so it’s good for down do’s. To be fair it was raining 1/2 the time so my hair wasn’t gonna look too hot either way.
The Loretta is a hairspray for “fluffy” hair looks. The products of this brand are decorated beautifully and have a scent of rose and lavender.
“Essence for Princess Perfect Hair”
Also the box for this is gorgeous. It’s hair essence so it adds shine and softens plus gives off a scent of rose all day.
Next to that, the SALA Hair Cologne is what I’m currently using daily. I’d say the scent lasts about 6~8 hours.
But the commercial, OMG this is me…
Next to SALA’s is Ma Cherie’s Hair Fragrance. The Sexy Girl Hair Cologne. I didn’t think Sexy Girl had a rose one at first because their pink bottle is “Candy Berry” scent and I just naturally looked to pink bottles for the rose scents. Finally I took a moment to look through all their fragrances and realized the purple can was the rose. Serves me right for thinking rose = pink 100% of the time.
Then some Body Fantasies in Rose Petal which is a scent I had never seen in the states before. It’s a mix of rose & baby powder. Baby Powder isn’t among my favorite scents but it worked in this case. I bought it for something I could take with me on the plane (under 3oz) and was a strong scent since I would be essentially off & on planes for 24hours straight. Apparently this scent won some 2011 Yahoo Beauty Award. My friend told me I smelled good so I guess it works
Liese Night Care Whip. This sounded intriguing. You blow dry it into your hair at night and it’s supposed to help you wake up with ready to go voluminous hair. I haven’t used it yet and the reviews at cosme.net have me a little doubtful but I still wanted to try it out.
I regret not buying the rose toner from this line after reading reviews that it was amazing. Either way, I did get the rosewater hair mist & this moisturizer.
That’s it for now~
