All about Japanese fashion, skincare, makeup and even household items.
I'm beginning to sound like a broken recorder now... but I LOVE EVERYTHING JAPAN!
From Japanese fashion, to household items, to furniture, food, baby items and of course my favourite beauty and skincare products, I'm a diehard Japan fan (if you haven't realised by now...)
Recently, I was introduced to Everythingfrom.JP and omg, I simply can't get enough of the site.
Like the name suggests, Everythingfrom.JP is a platform for customers outside of Japan to purchase Japanese-made and traditional Japanese products. This is where you can find many unique and handmade products not typically available in your local stores.
If you love Japan beauty products like me, then you'll be glad to know that they stock hundreds of skincare, makeup, bodycare, hair and dental products and interestingly, they are labelled by the nine different regions they're from i.e. Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, Chugoku, Kyushu and Shikoku.
I tried out some of their products for myself and here are my favourites!
Kumanofude Brush Set
$87.53 // Get it here
This portable brush set contains a blush brush, eye brow brush and lips brush with a stylish black case.
I think because the brushes are handmade, they offer very strong control. I like how the cheek brush feels so soft against my skin but yet is able to pick up quite a bit of colour for easy application.
As for the eyebrow brush, the brush bristles are rather short and stiff which makes it easy to groom your brows and comb your lashes (especially if you've got eyelash extensions on!)
I was also very impressed with the retractable lip brush as its flat and firm bristles offer precise application of lipstick which is essential for red lippies and other bold colours.
Horse Oil Set
$66.52 // Get it here
Horse oil has been all the rage lately but this ingredient actually dates all the way back to centuries ago. Because of the essential fatty acid called linolenic acid that it contains, it hence has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to maintain and repair the barrier of the skin.
This horse oil set comes with a shampoo, conditioner and body soap to nourish your scalp, hair and skin. It makes a great gift set too!
Collagen Skincare Set
$48.48 // Get it here
From the popular Collagen series in Japan, this set comes with a toner and moisturiser and when used together, deeply hydrates and revitalises the skin.
I can't live without the toner! A little tip, I sometimes drench a few cotton pads with it and place it on my skin for 10 minutes or so for a quick mask in the morning before applying makeup. I feel that it adds an instant glow to my skin and my makeup usually lasts longer.
And what makeup do I use?
Mineral BB Cream
$26.93 // Get it here
This luxurious BB cream is a 3-in-1 product that comprises skincare, UV protection, and makeup. 80% of this cream contains cosmetic ingredients such as natural minerals and natural oriental medical herbs.
You don’t even need to worry about forgetting to wipe this off before you sleep! This liquid foundation has anti-aging effects as well.
To apply, simply take an adequate amount (about one pearl size's worth) of the product and lightly tap it onto face. I usually apply this after toner.
So yup, if you're looking for Japanese products in Singapore, you really ought to check out Everythingfrom.JP or see some really cool exclusives ranging from household items to beauty products and even jewelry here!
