What's a girl to do alone on a Friday night, drinking Orangina (how wild) with my hand in a bag of cookies? Well, I decided to take photos of the beauty products I use in Japan and share my regimen.
To be honest, I don't use many Japanese brands, for various reasons. I find the hair care (shampoo and conditioner) to be too heavy for my thick hair, the body lotions too light for my dry skin, and the make up shades not quite the right fit for my skin tone. However, I found quite a few gems in Japanese brands, after trying practically everything over the past three and a half years. I particularly love Japanese cleansing oils and mascaras.
I now only stick to what works best for me, and most of those products are not Japanese brands- however, they can all be purchased in Japan (at least in Tokyo), as I don't shop online. If you have any questions on where to find certain items, please ask in the comments!
And please share any great beauty products you found available in Japan!

Ah, every girl needs Chanel. I use a nude, golden lipstick in a shade called "Style" from the Coco Rouge line, which my boyfriend picked out for me on my birthday. I trust his taste! Coco Mademoiselle eau de parfum has been my signature scent for over ten years now.... that makes me sound old I know.
Those are random, but essential: mint eyedrops that make my eyes burn and squint for like a whole minute, and Ringl is the best over-the-counter painkiller I've found in Japan- for headaches, muscle pain and stomach cramps, so I highly recommend it to keep around your house.
