This was released in Japanese markets in 2004, and has since become the #1 facial lotion there, with a bottle claimed to be purchased every four seconds! I had heard of this product a few years ago from the OG – Gothamista and since it was sitting in may “Want from Japan” list for a while. I am lucky enough to have friends who travel and are willing to indulge me so that’s how I got my hand on this cult favourite Hydrating Lotion.
I don’t think MAC Cosmetics has left any stone unturned in marketing this product! All Beauty Influencers and Makeup Artists alike can’t stop talking about it. You have to give it to MAC for some very potent advertising due to which I was (for the lack of a more appropriate word) coerced into buying this highlighting cream, ambitiously named – Strobe Cream!
Since forever I have been trying to find a lip balm that works for me! I am that special kind of unlucky who have chapped lips all year round and thus have tried lip balms from various brands and many-many home remedies. So far not much luck! But the quest continues and this time I tried the Lotus & Kokum Butter Lip Balm from SoulTree.
If you have been with me on my blogging journey you know how serious I am with Sunscreen. I have mentioned in multiple posts in the past that sunscreen is perhaps the only skincare product that every person should be using from a health standpoint. But very few people do and one of the reasons for that is they are unable to find a product that they like. I can’t blame them because most sunscreens are thick and goopy and makes one sweat, really nobody wants that! This weightless Japanese Sunscreen promises to do better, moreover the internet beauty community is obsessed with it. I wanted to find out why so I made a friend bring me this right from the source – a drugstore in Japan!
