Last year, this was on sale at the drugstore, 500¥ for 550mL, at the same time that Shiseido was releasing so many adverts of gorgeous women with this shampoo. Who wouldn't want hair like a beautiful Nakama Yukie or Uehara Takako? So I tried it, and it made my hair oily (my hair is never oily!). And the tsubaki smell is like the businessmen that rode the trains when I was a little girl -- …Read more

This sunscreen doesn't irritate my skin, and it has high SPF. It doesn't look or feel oily, so it's very comfortable to wear all day. Like others of its type, it claims to be whitening, though it doesn't leave the whitish cast that some others do. But it is a little difficult to wash off, and if you buy the matching sunscreen remover then it is too expensive. It smells like …Read more

I tried this moisturizer about a year ago, and it gave me a horrible case of chemical burn (my face was still red, irritated and slightly puffy the next day, even though I washed it off almost immediately after applying it).

This looks reddish in the package, but completely colorless on my pigmented lips. I really like the mint flavor; it feels refreshing when I first apply it. I know that this is basically scented petroleum jelly, but to me, it feels a little lighter and less oily than plain vaseline (may just be my imagination).

I like the way the packaging looks; but the tin is a little big for a pants …

I like that this product doesn't contain any chemical sunscreens (which make my face feel like it's burning), only titanium dioxide. It's less oily than other physical sunscreens I've tried (vanicream, badger, etc.), so I'm more likely to actually wear it on my face every day. I wanted the higher spf one, but that color looked oddly chalky on my skin. This color matches …Read more
