BeautyMate Sakura Series Deep Cleansing Oil

Bought this 200mL pump bottle of BeautyMate Sakura Series Deep Cleansing Oil a few years(!) back and totally forgot about it until now. Woops. Good thing it's still ok and I've been using it for a couple of weeks now, after finishing The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Make-up Cleansing Oil. Don't be forgetful like me, folks. Skincare products do expire.

A day in Nezu, Bunkyo, Tokyo

While in Tokyo, I frequented a cafe and made friends with a gal who works there. T. had spent a few years in Australia as an international student, so we had lots to chat about. In the second week of September, she had a few hard-earned days of vacation and was kind enough to spend one of those days introducing me to her hometown Nezu (根津).

On another note, I made it to the middle of September in my photo backlog. Will post about a quick and gastronomically satisfying trip to Taipei soon ^.^

Anyway, T. and I met up at Nezu Station and she suggested a kamameshi restaurant. I had zero objections as I love kamameshi. Turned out the place also serves yakitori. What's better than having one of your favorite foods? Why, it's having two of your favorite foods, of course!

Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick Part III

Long time no Clinique! Had this freebie Butter Shine Lipstick in Baby Baby for a long time now, so here's an quick and utterly overdue post for it.

These lipsticks had been discontinued for a while now, and I'm not too heartbroken about it. Yes, I really loved the formula and I raved about it when I first tried it, but I haven't indulged in more of them due to the color selection.

All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make-up Remover

One 300mL pump bottle of Bifesta Cleansing Lotion last me the entire time hubby and I were in Tokyo, and then some. I didn't finish the bottle even, and prior to leaving Tokyo I passed it on to a friend.

Since settling in back home I've been using this 150mL/5fl. oz. bottle of The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make-up Remover instead. Mine is actually an older version as the packaging is now different and the product is called Camomile Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, even though it still works for both eyes and lips.

Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Shinjuku, Tokyo

The end of August took me to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building with my friend K. and her two year-old toddler, K.

K. and I have actually known each other since 2005, when I was a JET in Takaoka, Toyama, at the same high school where K. was teaching. She was one of the teachers I taught with and we've kept contact intermittently over the years. When hubby and I moved to Tokyo in the late summer of 2015, we met up for lunch every few months or so.

Pond's Age Beauty Creamy Cleansing

Bought this 150mL pump bottle of Pond's Age Beauty Creamy Cleansing before leaving Tokyo and didn't have to take a picture of the outer packaging. So when I took it out to use, I tore it all off before remembering that oops, no packaging photos. Oh well.

Precious Garden Hand Cream Part II

At long last, after some 9+ months I finally finished my previous tube of Precious Garden Hand Cream in the Relaxing Flower scent. Now I'm moving on to the second 70g tube in the Honey Peach scent.


Well, it smells neither of honey or peach but rather a generic but pleasant fruity flowery scent. It's not overpowering and I only use half a pea size amount each time anyway.

See my previous Precious Garden Hand Cream post.

Nanzen-ji, Kyoto, Kyoto, Part II

Here's a quick detour to Tenju-an, a sub-temple at Nanzen-ji. The original Tenju-an's completion date was 1337, but it was burned down some 110 years later along with most of Nanzen-ji in a great fire of 1447.
