It’s been such a strange summer here in Japan. Everyone was expecting it to be a super hot summer, and while July was really hot, it rained for 22 days straight in August. Still, I used a lot of summer products to deal with the humidity. Here is a look back at my empties in the recent months!
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation (link goes to my review)
I really wish every company put their foundation in a container like this. It is a small plastic container with a squeeze tube. It’s super easy to carry around, I can dispense foundation easily, and I don’t need to worry about any spillage!
Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bare Lights (link goes to my review)
I feel like this was one of the first liquid highlighting products at the drugstore. I really enjoyed how versatile it was!
Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder (link goes to my review)
This is a silica powder with a peach fragrance. It is a great powder, but buying silica powder in bulk will do the same thing. I used to be able to find silica powder online easily, but I can’t seem to find it anymore!
Milani Eyeshadow Primer (link goes to my review)
This is a great, great primer at a wonderful price! It is a must have in my collection!
Beauty Make-up Sponge (set of 20)
I always enjoyed using the Beauty Blender, but it isn’t easy to buy in Japan. I have gone back to using disposable sponges!
Bath and Body Works Aloha Waterfall Orchid shower gel
This was the last of my Bath and Body Works collection! I hope I can get more when I visit the US.
Sephora Daily Brush Cleanser (link goes to my review)
I’d never used brush cleansers before, but I picked this up on a whim at Sephora. It cleans my brushes well and doesn’t leave a scent.
Rohto Skin Aqua Super Moisture Essence SPF 50+ PA++++
This is my go-to SPF for my body. I like that it absorbs well into my skin and doesn’t leave it sticky.
Nivea Sun Protect Plus UV Milky Essence SPF50+ PA++++
This is my other favorite SPF for my body. It is a bit thicker than the Rhoto one, and I like using it when I’m outdoors.
Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel SPF 50+ PA++++
This is my go-to SPF for my face. It’s light and absorbs well, but it contains alcohol.
Hope you enjoyed my empties!
