This detergent works insanely well at cleaning makeup sponges and brushes. I had been using an oil/dish soap combo to clean my Real Techniques makeup sponge, which works really well, but the Daiso detergent is just easier to use. It truly gets out all of the makeup and discoloration. It also rinses well: I used to use a simple dish soap in my makeup sponges, but I found I was rinsing endlessly before the soap ran clear. With this detergent the process of cleaning the sponge from beginning to end is easily less than 5 minutes.I've also been using the detergent for my makeup brushes instead of only sponges, because it's great for that, too. Fast, easy, and very effective. My brushes and sponge come out looking like new.The drawbacks: 1. I first bought this in-store and it was seriously marked up. It can be found much more cheaply on eBay, but then you have to deal with waiting for a shipment from Japan. So it's not super convenient. 2. The bottles are annoyingly small. If they came out with an economy-sized bottle of this stuff, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.But regardless, I have and will continue to repurchase this. It's quite inexpensive relative to other makeup sponge cleansers I've seen, and much more convenient than DIY brush cleanser recipes.

I was wanting to try one of the peel off charcoal masks that are so popular here lately, and this one was only $5 so I snatched it up.First impression is that it smells very chemically floral. I could live without that but I figured whatever. It's sort of runny and messy but thick, and it doesn't like to wash off of your hands when it's still wet. It also gets all under your fingernails so use a spatula to avoid that headache. If you use a thicker coat it'll take roughly 20 minutes to completely dry enough to get it off in one piece. Be sure to get it even around the edges if you can as it makes it easier to start peeling. The thinner the coat the flimsier and more likely to rip it is.So, if you have peach fuzz or any facial hair this is going to be painful for you. Very painful. I don't have peach fuzz because I shave it off but this still hurts. It pulls the skin and it cant be good to use very often for that reason. Definitely AVOID the undereye area and the eyebrows at all costs.I don't have a lot of blackheads but this pulled out nothing. Not a single bit of anything. I know it's gross but I even examined it with my phone flashlight. Nothing.Don't bother. It's basically a novelty item.

Since like everything at Daiso "the price is right" ($4), I picked this up even though I was skeptical that it would be soft enough for my sensitive skin. But, it's stellar! The bristles (obviously synthetic) are so soft that you can use this to "dry brush" if you like (don't overdo it, it's so soft you might be tempted!). And although I must be very careful exfoliating due to very sensitive skin, I can use this for washing as well. Oh, and the handle is wood, very nice! Just rinse well and make sure to put it somewhere it can dry out between uses.

It's a decent product for the price and it gets the job done. It's not as good as the Daiso sponge cleaner in my experience. It doesn't foam as much, and I find myself having to use more of this cleaner vs the sponge cleaner. I've used both for my brushes and sponges (the brushes are both natural and synthetic fibres).But I'm going back to the sponge cleaner after this bottle runs out.

PRICES ARE IN NEW ZEALAND DOLLARS.My review is for the $3.50 powder that is in the black compact with a rose patterned on it. It comes attached to pink and black cardboard when you buy it. This review does not reflect the other powders Daiso sell with different packaging .This is a 3.75 out of 5 if you view it as a full coverage natural-finish powder foundation, and already own setting spray, mattifying powder, and blush/bronzer. If you do not have those things then this will probably be a 1/5 for you because full coverage powder foundations look cakey and bad when used alone, and are often mistaken for being good at oil control when they aren't.If you read my other reviews you'll see I'm harsh towards cheap products because I hate hate hate reviews that mark up cheap crap just because it's cheap, because that results in people wasting money on poor quality products that are deceptively marked higher than better quality products. I love a good bargain and saving money but that just results in money being thrown away. This product is very good in terms of coverage, not just "good for the price". But yeah, it really does depend on how you use it with other products. This will probs be a total disappointment to many.My HG powder is the $63 Tarte Airbushed Powder Foundation in Light Sand which is full coverage and extremely yellow (I'm Chinese and have a very yellow neck/body but a neutral face, so I go for very yellow foundations to hide the mismatching tone or it never suits). The Daiso in the shade Eccru is just as full coverage, but not as warm (although it is still fairly yellow and will match most NC15 - NC20). It also doesn't have as smooth a finish as the Tarte does - I had no issues going outside without using setting spray with the Tarte because it was such a great finely milled powder that didn't look flat.The Daiso comes with a small sponge that can be stored in the container and it's okay. I apply with my Zoeva buffing brush and the powder is thick enough to drag the bristles a bit out of place, which is worrying. It also has that really strong powdery smell that cheap foundation powders have.It does have some glitter particles in it, which are quite big. Thankfully there's not many of them. I only end up with one or two per application. This powder photographs BEAUTIFULLY if you're using a front facing camera in artificial lighting. I imagine it'll look far less pleasant in natural light with a proper camera, but I can just use a different foundation for that. I have legit never ever loved the look of my skin as much in a photo as I have using this powder, it's so healthy and radiant looking.I'm the kind of person that doesn't always use blush/bronzer with medium coverage foundations because I quite like the "flat" one tone look and I have high cheekbones anyway, but this powder is so full coverage that you absolutely need it. It does a phenomenal job of covering skin redness. You could use it as a concealer.This powder is basically a less shimmery, full coverage version of Revlon Photoready powder foundations. I really didn't like the Revlon because it was very overpriced ($40) and caked up in shimmery patches despite having poor coverage.I have not had any issues with this settling into lines and pores, which is usually an issue I face with most liquid foundations.I hate buying products that are mediocre, no matter how cheap they are but I will repurchase this because the coverage is nuts and I can make the product work for me because a) screw Tarte for charging $63 for a damn powder that only lasts three months and b) I already own all the things that can make this work. This won't be my daily driver but I will use it for non-special occasions, when I'm not as tan, or if I'm planning on taking photos in artificial lighting.I recommend this (in the shade Eccru) ONLY to people who:Want full coverageAlready own setting spray, blush/bronzer and setting powderAre in between NC15 and NC20Have realistic expectations of what full coverage powders look likeTake photos in indoor lighting
