Spotted at Watsons: Bioré Scented Pore Packs in Lamune* Soda and Strawberry Frappé.
These limited edition pore-decloggers instantly reminded me of Clean & Clear Oil Blotting Paper, thanks to the incongruity of lovely scents with the unlovely image of sebum…not to mention whiteheads, blackheads and other pore-clogging gunk. The Japanese have always had a knack for marketing; who would’ve thought to pair these two things together? Clever, really – after all, sweet scents / confectionery + beauty items = irresistible!
