FOOD, Japan, Uncategorized JAPAN: OHHHH THE SHOPPING!! 28 February 2010

It’s a shopping paradise in Japan.

Did quite a bit of shopping whilst I was there…. oops! Not my fault, I couldn’t help it, the stuff’s all too awesome 😉 I ADORE Japanese designed/made/sold stuff. The fashion is right up my alley, the skincare/cosmetics are top-notch and fascinating, and everything is just higher quality imho. It’s heavenly shopping there! Bought quite a bit but I didn’t take photos of everything because I’m too lazy and no one really cares what I buy anyway 😛

But here’s a couple of things that I DID end up photographing:


Was shocked (and delighted) to see Lush there! Unfortunately, everything was
in Japanese so couldn’t understand 😛 Ended up buying ‘Sympathy For the Skin’
moisturiser and the Strawberry massage bar… smells awesome 🙂

My Italian calfskin gloves, lined with cashmere. It cost a friggin’ FORTUNE and the
bright orange dirties so easily. Arghhh..

Bought Covermark cosmetics… yes, the same brand I was raving like a nutter
about, in my previous Favourite Cosmetics blog entry. This powder foundation
is perfection! I also bought Mum the liquid foundation and loose powder, cos
they’re soooo good.

KITSON!!!!! One of my fave brands in the USA, they had a store in Japan, yay

The back of the mad cute lil pouch

Kitson tee, that is very very very me 😛

Hello Kitty mineral water.. cos I like regressing into a 5 year old, okay?!

FASCINATING face wash/scrub I bought from the Onsen. As you rub the gel on
your skin, your dead skin cells ‘pills’ and balls up. When you wash it off, you’re
left with super smooth, silky, clear skin. I’m LOVING it!!!

A present for our furkids – jellies!

Incredible snacks Mum bought – in plain, and covered in white chocolate. Mmm..

    Cute purchases. The cleanser where the skin pills up sounds fascinating. Remember when Biore pore perfect strips were all the rage? I was obsessed with getting stuff out of my skin.

      The Biore strips actually didn’t work for me.. I found em too harsh on my skin! the concept is awesome though.
      This cleanser is a bit like that, but over the whole face and milder. I looove how soft it feels afterwards

    I love the huge selection of gloves and other accessories that they have in the department stores. Too bad I live in Singapore now or I would have bought more. It’s annoying how calfskin leather gloves seem to make my hair all staticky when I touch my hair though due to the dry weather.

      Yeah their accessory collection made me quiver, hehe.
      I’m disappointed at how the calfskin is sooo fragile tho, and I should’ve gotten it in black so ti doesn’t show dirt so easily, dohhh

        Yeah the one I bought was black. To be honest though, the leather ones just look nice. They dont keep your hands very warm even with the cashmere lining. :p
