Skin care & make-up experiment: the shopping is done(?)  
I am back from Tokyo and I was almost able to buy everything I wanted/needed.

First, some 'accessories':

The thingy on the left is supposed to help to make your face wash super foamy so that it's more effective (and fun, because foam is fun). I spotted this on a shelf by complete accident, which was fortunate indeed.

Baby Foot is because my feet need love. This was actually on my list of things to get, haha.

And tongue scraper is to clean my tongue! Apparently the tongue is where all the stuff that smells bad remains, etc. I had never heard of specific items for cleaning one's tongue until I saw someone use it on Big Brother Australia or something. Since then I've been looking for something like it in Finland and my impression has been that it simply does not exist. Huh. So I was sure to grab one from Japan when I spotted one on a shelf.

These are the skin care products I got:

Except I forgot to include the sunscreen I bought, Bioré UV AQUA Rich!

From left to right:
Rosetto face wash, Natural Aqua Gel Cure exfoliator, Mentholatum Melano CC intensive anti-spot essence, Sana Tonyu Isofurabon toner

I wasn't able to find the exact moisturizer and cleansing oil that I had written down on my list, so I simply decided not to buy one from Japan to avoid accidentally buying a product that doesn't fit me at all. I already went to a supermarket to look for a local replacement and ended up with these:

Again, trying to avoid anything that might make my skin oily, so hopefully the moisturizer does have a matte finish as promised.

Here's the make-up I got:

Canmake Lasting Multi Eye Base WP, Cezanne lipstick, Cezanne blush, and the super famous mascara and eyeliner that can be found literally everywhere.

What I didn't end up finding was "kiss Mat Chiffon UV Ease N"; it was supposed to be a mattifying primer for the T-zone to prevent skin from becoming oily and such. But I couldn't find a product named exactly this, so again, to avoid any risk, I didn't buy anything. But if everything else I have is mattifying and I live in a relatively 'dry' and cold country, maybe I won't even need it.

So I have almost everything I need! Now I should just get started with the experiment, eventually. Unfortunately I am still completely knackered from my trip, so today is not the day.

Sana Tonyu must be anti-latina face because my friend and I both used it and we broke out soooo bad lol. I think everything else is pretty good as far as regular pharmaceutical products go.

OOP, I hope it's not anti-my face too! I hate having practically unused products lying around that I can't use x_x

We both ended up tossing them out.
Then again though, I have bad luck with Japanese products. I used the one you bought after I quit using a shiseido line, because it literally peeled my skin off.

Looking forward to your results!
I meant to reply to the last entry but I forgot..
But! I too want to have more of a skincare regime, most probably having a nighttime routine? I'm terrible with passing out or falling asleep without washing my face and the results arent pretty D:
