This is Part 2 of my series on products I would repurchase or have repurchased. This time, it’s all about skin care products! I have reviewed all of these products on my blog before, so please click the product name to go to the review.
-Keana Nadeshiko Baking Soda Scrub Powder Facial Wash
I mentioned in the review that I would probably not repurchase this again, because I could make this by mixing baking soda with my normal facial cleanser. However, this is a great product if you are too lazy (like me) to mix it by hand.
-Lush Angels on Bare Skin
I actually do not have a review post on this product, even though I have repurchased it multiple times. I have two comparison posts for it (one for the US/UK vs Japan versions, and one to compare it with the Lush Buche de Noel cleanser), as well as a post on how to keep it creamy.
I really need to do a thorough review on it! This is a great gentle exfoliant, although I would not use it as a cleanser.
-Lush Brazen Honey Fresh Face Mask
As I mentioned in the review, this is my favorite Lush Fresh Face Mask and I repurchase it every time I go to the US or to the UK (Fresh Face Masks are simply too expensive in Japan, see the cost comparison in the review post). It is a great exfoliator and I love how it smells.
-Lush Mask of Magnaminty
As I wrote in my review, this is a really minty exfoliator. Steer clear of this if you have sensitive skin as both the strong mint smell and the adzuki beans may irritate your skin. If you can handle it, it’s a great product! The Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask is very similar, so check out that post if you would like to see a comparison between the two.
-Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
This is the very best brand of makeup wipes I have used. They get my makeup off completely but they are not harsh, and the cloth is also very soft. However, if I use my Clarisonic after using a wipe, I’ll always see a bit of makeup on the Clarisonic. This doesn’t happen if I use an oil-based cleanser. I guess wipes don’t remove all of my makeup. However, if you like wipes, these are the ones I recommend.
-Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun hyaluronic acid Eki (toner)
I can’t tell you how many bottles of this I have repurchased. I use up one bottle every 2 weeks, and I rotate through the various Hadalabo toners depending on the season and how my skin feels.
-Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel
Yet another great exfoliator! However, this uses salicylic acid to exfoliate. Like the Lush Mask of Magnaminty, this has kaolin and menthol to keep the oils under control.
-St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea scrub
This is a great exfoliator which is gentle enough to use every day. It is also great as a daily cleanser, and I love the smell. I cannot wait to get my hands on another tube!
-VOV Daily Fresh Mini Pack Apple AHA Peeling Gel
This is a very affordable exfoliant which is also very easy to use. If you can get to Korea, I strongly recommend you pick up some packets of this mask!
As you can see, I love my exfoliators. I guess it’s because I can immediately feel the difference they have on my skin!
