Jurlique Hand Cream Part II

Been using two 40mL tubes of Jurlique Hand Cream in the Citrus and Rose scents. I sent the Jasmine scent tube to a friend in Tokyo so this will be the last Jurlique hand cream post.

Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion

I have a 30mL/1fl. oz. tube of Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion that I've tried using a few times but am still ambivalent about, each use left me feeling iffy and uncertain rather than clean and confident.

Boscia Sake Cleansing Water

Although this 150mL/5.07fl. oz. bottle of Boscia Sake Cleansing Water is a recent addition to my basket of cleansing waters, it's been discontinued for at least a year now I believe. There are stock still available via E(vil)bay with expiration dates in 2020, though I got my bottle from a Sephora sale in 2017.

Biore UV Mild Care Milk SPF30 PA++

Since the beginning of June, my little one's school has been hosting a weekly Splash Day when all the kiddos come to school already in swim gears and get to splish-splash to their heart's content. Usually, for daily use I go for the easy-on-easy-off stuff, Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel for Kids, and the school requires sunscreen application prior to arrival regardless (they reapply in the afternoon too, using the All Good Kid's Sunscreen Spray SPF30, will post later). However, outdoor water play on a clear and sunny day is a whole different game, one that calls for a sunscreen that's *not* easy-off.

Enters this 120mL bottle of Biore UV Mild Care Milk SPF30 PA++, a sunscreen for kids in a more tenacious milk formula. Funny enough, I bought two each of this Mild Care Milk and a stronger Kids Milk SPF50+ PA++++, the latter of which I'm saving for longer play dates at the outdoor pool (will post later). Somehow, I was sent one each of the old and new packaging for both sunscreens xD Actually, for the Kids Milk, the bottle with the red apple was a 2018 limited edition with apple fragrance.

From various purchases, I got several of these 5mL/0.1oz tubes of Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel so I put them all into a glass jar for hubby to use. He's almost done with the jar so here's a quick post for it.

Lunasol Airy Glow Lips

Last fall, before the giant box of goodies, Caty and I had another smaller swap in which I received two Lunasol Airy Glow Lips from her, in the colors 03 Macaron Coral (CO) and EX03 Marron (BE).

These were a brand new release in the spring of 2018 as part of the Macaron Collection. I skipped that collection entirely. There were too many pastels, and I can't really pull off any pastel to begin with. I love the colors, but they don't mesh well with my yellow skin tone. That doesn't mean I wasn't curious about the lipstick line.

Shikioriori Tsubaki Hair Essence Water

When I bought this 250mL spray bottle of Shikioriori Tsubaki Hair Essence Water, I just thought to try a new leave-in hair conditioner for my lazy nights, which is sadly most nights ^.^" I didn't expect to like it as much as I do.

A few months ago, I picked out this hair water and a few other new shampoo sets from Rakuten JP. Along with a bunch of other stuff like sunscreens, snacks, dried soups, etc., I had the store sent my big box via surface mail (funabin, aka ocean freight), which usually takes 2-3 months and almost always arrived a little beat up, because that was just how ocean freight rolled ^.^" You tape stuff up and you wrap them well if you don't want them arrived all banged up, because they will be.
