Daiso is a veritable treasure trove of beauty delights and I wasn’t disappointed during my recent trip there.
My penchant for makeup pouches is evident in my posts, so you’d probably understand why I couldn’t leave the store without one…or two, in this case. :P While the ice cream pouch was a purchase to complement another, I couldn’t resist the flat Maize Bunny case because of its useful shape and adorable print.
Black is in this season and this chic shade colours beauty accessories as well. The black cotton tips not only look snazzy, they also have grooves that help rectify makeup mistakes and aid precision in makeup application.
I haven’t used the black powder puff yet but I think it’s a nice change from the usual tamer-looking white and beige velour puffs.
‘炭’ (tàn in han yu pin yin) is the Chinese and Japanese character for charcoal, an ingredient that is believed to be anti-bacterial and apparently has the ability to eliminate impurities.
This gentle cleansing foam may contain charcoal but it smells good and isn’t abrasive. I’ve purchased this made-in-Korea face product several times as it is a good daily cleanser that leaves the skin feeling clean but never stripped of moisture.
The rubber cleansing pad surprised me with its performance. I bought it on a whim after fingering the sample pad on the top right corner of the packaging. I didn’t expect a lot from it but to my joy, the silicone protrusions feel comfortable on the skin and the pad pairs wonderfully with the charcoal facial foam to make my skin soft and clean. If you’re looking for a gentle manual exfoliating tool, this would be something to try.
All in all, a satisfying haul. I leave you with an interesting piece of Japlish that I found at the back of the cleansing pad packaging. Although the instructions made me laugh with their quaint phrasing, I like how polite they are! ;)
