Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment

In the fall 2016 when hubby and I just moved home from Tokyo, I sort of went crazy stocking up on eye creams after realizing I had completely ran out. This 14g/0.5oz. jar of Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment was among the several full sizes I bought. Funny how I didn't get to using it until a whole year later... =.=

L'Occitane Jasmin & Bergamote Body Milk

Updated Thursday, December 28, 2017.

Picked up a full size bottle of this body lotion during L'Occitane's summer clearance. It smells nice, though I wouldn't repurchase after this bottle. It's all sold out anyway.

Just finished this 50mL/1.6fl. oz. tube of L'Occitane Jasmin & Bergamote Body Milk from the Discover Our Favorites Set I bought a while back. It lasted me for about two weeks with nightly use all over my body (arms, butts, and legs).

Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Firming Serum

Been using this 15mL/0.5fl. oz. pump bottle of Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Firming Serum. It's from the Ultimate Lift Wonders set, which also includes 7mL/0.25fl. oz. jars of Ultimate Lift Eye Gel and Ultimate Lift Eye Cream that I just finished up yesterday.

Fukumitsuya Suppin Essentials Facial Washing Foam

Half way through this 25g tube of Fukumitsuya Suppin Essentials Facial Washing Foam from the same Trial Set as the Cleansing Liquid, so here's a really short review for it.

Fukumitsuya Suppin Essentials Cleansing Liquid

In addition to Kiku-Masamune Sake Skincare, Caty also recommended Fukumitsuya to me, another brewery that produces their own sake-based skincare, in a few different product lines in fact. Suppin Essentials is the more affordable of those lines so I picked up a Trial Set for a test run. This 30mL bottle of Cleansing Liquid is part of that set and I'm already half way through it.

Chicca Mystic Powder Eye Shadow

I blame Citrine for giving me lemmings for the Chicca Mesmeric Lipsticks, which I'll review next (which may mean a few weeks...). But when I was buying these lippies I spotted this Mystic Powder Eye Shadow in EX36 Fuchsia Island. It was pretty, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Honestly, I'm not sure what this brand is all about. It started out aiming for ladies in their 50-60's, but according to their official website, "chicca" is Italian for "cute." I have to wonder if women in that age group would really describe themselves as "cute," but okay, whatever. Nowadays, their spokesmodel is a much younger gal so I guess they realized they needed to do some marketing research after all.

Celvoke Voluntary Eye Palette

Here's Celvoke Voluntary Eye Palette 05, finally, weeks after mentioning it in the previous Voluntary Eyes post. With the holidays approaching, things are just spinning out of control for me at home so the drafts are just piling up on the blog =.=

I drooled the moment I saw this Palette 05. It's one of those earth-tone everyday palette that's super easy to wear that I simply can't have enough of... In fact, I was so taken with this palette I totally forgot to do the due diligence before buying it. You know where I'm going with this, right?

Clarins Men Active Face Wash

I feel like I'd neglected Japanese skincare brands this past year having purchased a lot of Clarins, Origins, and Jurlique. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. It used to be that I'd peruse the drugstore shelves and the department store counters in Tokyo and pick out an item I'm curious about. Ha. Those were the days.

Anyway, I'm not just buying for myself but for hubby too. During one sale, I picked up a Clarins Men Age-Control Collection because it had a gel moisturizer in a pump bottle, and hubby is partial to gels and gel-creams. He hasn't gotten to the gel yet, but we're both using the 30mL/1.06oz. tube of the Active Face Wash right now and really like it.

Celvoke Voluntary Eyes

Celvoke started to pop up in my Insta feed in the spring of this year. Being a new kid on the (high-end) block, I was intrigued but wasn't ready to give the brand a try until I saw photos of their Voluntary Eyes (what a weird name!) shadow singles tester board. By the end of the summer, I gave in and picked up 06 Chocolate Brown, 07 Tan, 09 Roshenna, and 12 Dark Purple from the 24 colors available.

Lunasol Shine Fall Eyes

Since August, I've been sitting on this gorgeous Lunasol Shine Fall Eyes palette EX01 Artistic Tone, fall 2017's Shinjuku Isetan exclusive. There was also a Full Glamour Lips EX09 which I skipped. I didn't like that Lunasol had changed the texture and pigmentation level for these lipsticks, making them creamy and semi-opaque, at least that's how I remember them. The last release I'd played with in person was the fall 2016 collection.
