Mentholatum Lip Fondue

Aside from Kiss Cream Sheer Rouge and Rohto Lip The Color, yet a third hit from Julia's enormous care package last fall was this Mentholatum Lip Fondue in Marmalade Orange.

Rohto Lip The Color SPF26 PA+++

In addition to Kiss Creamy Sheer Rouge, another huge hit for me from Julia's generous care package from last fall was this Rohto Lip The Color SPF26 PA+++ in the color Precious Red. Yes, it has a stupid name, but it's an awesome lippie so don't write it off just yet.

RMK The Basic4eyes

In the fall of 2018, RMK released a limited edition Moon Bloom Coloring Eyes collection that was quite attractive. I was especially taken with 02 Night Shadow, an olive-green palette, and 03 Garden Dream, a pink-coral. However, being LE they were sold out quickly, especially 03 Garden Dream that looked so pretty and feminine. I was disappointed to be so late into the game and missed out (and didn't want to pay an arm and a leg to get one from E(vil)bay and Amazon).

01 Twelve O'clock


02 Night Shadow


03 Garden Dream

04 Swinging Garden

05 Lightning Star


06 Sunflower Brown

Then came this past spring and a new The Basic4eyes collection came out and, what do you know, these palettes looked uncannily similar to the Moon Blooms. Upon comparing them two, I realized the Basics4eyes were in fact re-releases of the 4 of 6 Moon Bloom palettes. Yes, kind of lame, but I was glad I now own the palettes I wanted: 01 Spring Blossom and 02 Summer Fog. In fact, I ended up liking them so much I went back for yet a third despite the cream pan I probably won't touch, 03 Autumn Night (will review this later).

Moon Bloom 03 Garden Dream is now The Basic4eyes 01 Spring Blossom.

Moon Bloom 02 Night Shadow is now The Basic4eyes 02 Summer Fog

Moon Bloom 06 Sunflower Brown is now The Basic4eyes 03 Autumn Night

Moon Bloom 05 Lightning Star is now The Basic4eyes 04 Winter Ocean

HABA Squalane Beauty Oil Part II

So... I'm back to using a 4mL tiny bottle of HABA Squalane Beauty Oil. It was an additional freebie when I bought the Revitalizing Moisture Serum Set below, which contained 4mL bottle of Squalane II--a plant based squalane that I've been dying to try (will review later).

Bene Premium Bluria Delicious SPA Shampoo

Back when I bought the Bene Premium Bluria Clear Spa Shampoo, Moist Spa Treatment, and Moist Repair Hair Mask (will review later) 3-piece set, I also picked up just one 440mL/15.6fl. oz. refill pouch of this Bluria Delicious SPA Shampoo. What I didn't know was that this Delicious Spa shampoo was the previous Bluria line that the current Clear Spa had since replaced. There was also a discontinued Rougeria sister line (Bluria Delicious Spa was for scalp care, and Rougeria for repair).

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...).
