Sorry, hindi po ako nagshopping sa Japan (how I wish!).
I’m just very lucky to have very generous tita and sisters who never forget me whenever they send ‘care packages’ home.
Late last month when they asked what I wanted, I was wary to ask for clothes/dresses since I still don’t know how soon I’ll be able to get back to my ‘pre-pregnancy’ body. I then immediately remembered the sulit and kikay stuff that Mommy Fleur got when she went to Japan earlier this year.
I’m not really full on into make up although I appreciate a good facial cleanser and eyebrow pencil/ powder when I see one, so I asked if I can have Cure Facial Wash (which I’ve been reading raves about), cult classic favorite K-Palette Tattoo 2- way Eyebrow as well as Biore nose strip.
For someone who’s been living in Japan for more than 10 years, my aunt was not familiar with Cure Facial Wash (it’s said that thousand of bottles are sold in Japan everyday). I was also under the impression that the brands I requested can be bought in drugstores like drugstore brands Maybelline which apparently was not the case as well.
Needless to say, I was very excited to receive their gifts 🙂 The kids got very cute shirts and dresses from H&M which go crazy cheap when on sale. I got the the following:
I don’t really put on make up but I always see to it that I groom and line my eyebrows whenever I’m out. But since I got the eyeliner, I will start watching tutorials on how to put it on so I can do a review soon. Same with the nose strip, haven’t had the time to try it yet. Will definitely post a review as soon as I can 🙂
Na lost in translation din ang Cure Facial Wash but that’s okay. After all, it’s the thought that counts and I’m very thankful that they were able to find the time to pick up the things I requested.
As I’m currently on a self-imposed shopping ban, the gifts I received certainly curbed my shopping itch (at least for this month haha!).
How about you? Have any ‘loots’ you’d like to share?
