Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++

For over a year I'd resisted these cotton candy-colored tubes and bottles of sunscreens that supposedly color-correct, but alas in the end my curiosity got the better of me and I picked up two 80g tubes of Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++ in the "regular" Lavender tint as well as the 2019 limited edition Mint Green.

It's worth noting that the Lavender tube I have is the old formula with alcohol from 2018, versus the Mint Green being the newer 2019 formula without alcohol.

Skin Aqua SaraFit UV Sara Sara Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Boy is this review so very late. Good thing this sunscreen is still available. Despite the repackaging in 2017, the formulation hasn't changed as far as I know.

Anyway, back in 2016 when hubby and I were still in Tokyo, I gave this 50g tube of Skin Aqua SaraFit UV Sara Sara Essence PSF50+ PA++++ to him after he poo-pooed Nivea Sun Protect Plus UV Creamy UV Essence, disliking its soft matte finish and how it felt "waterproof" (it wasn't...).

Laneige Essential Power Skin Toner

Along with Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Squad Hydrating Mini Lip Set and Buxom Party Girl Pout Mini Lip Balm Kit, I also picked up this Laneige Hydrating Trial Kit at Sephora. The kit had a few things I wanted to try, among which this 50mL/1.69fl. oz. bottle of Essential Power Skin Toner which I've been using for the past couple of weeks.

Origins x Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion

This 30mL/1fl. oz. bottle of Origins x Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion (why are these names so ridiculously long?!) was from another Sephora PLAY! SMARTS box that caught my eyes last winter. This box was called Superfoods: Feed Your Face.

Tarte Quench Lip Rescue

Last winter, I was browsing Sephora and spotted this Rainforest of the Sea Quench Squad Hydrating Mini Lip Set with four mini Quench Lip Rescues in the colors Nude, Berry, Rose, and Red (Cherry?). While I was iffy on the formula and pigmentation, the mini paper tubes in super cute prints totally sold me and I picked one up to try, among other things.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye

This 3mL/0.1fl. oz. tube of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye replaced the Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Intensive Age-Renewal Eye Creme I finished a couple of weeks ago. The tube was from a generous Nordstrom GWP I got last winter.

La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream

Within the massive swap package Caty sent me last winter (thank you, Caty!) were several La Mer products, namely the original Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream and thinner versions of it. Since I already tried the original cream and found it too thick, I was actually excited to try the 3.5mL/0.12oz. jar of the Moisturizing Soft Cream. In fact, in addition to this jar I also got four 1.5mL/0.05oz. packets from various purchases at Nordstrom, so together they've been lasting me for 2+ weeks now with nightly use (L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream was switched to mornings).

Astalift Cleansing Gel Part II

I'd been looking forward to using a full size ever since I tried a mini 12g tube of this Astalift Cleansing Gel. However, when it was the 120g tube's turn, crappy and leaky bottles and jars forcibly jumped queue, starting with the The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil last December. Here it is almost a year later and I finally got to use what I've been wanting to use. I'm already more than half way through the tube and will get to the Cleansing Oil version next.
