Ever since I moved to Japan, I've become increasingly more curious and knowledgable about the skincare do's and don'ts. My skin condition actually became worse when I moved from California to Tokyo (maybe the change in environment, the water, the stress... who knows) and I've been trying different products to see if anything would help. My skin has finally started to settle down, so now I'm in the process of trying to get
rid of my acne scars. I have really pale skin, so the little red marks on my face can really stand out.
Anyways, I came across this egg white soap when shopping around for skincare products. I've heard that egg whites are very effective for getting rid of acne scars and preventing acne, but the only problem is, it's quite messy (yes, I've tried it before). So I thought I'd give this soap a try. At first, I was using it normally, just to wash my face. But what I recently found out was, it's much more effective to foam it up and leave it on for 5-10 minutes as a mask. After trying that for one week, boy, what a difference that has made! My skin looks brighter, cleaner and smoother. And it's not expensive at all.
Here's an article I found on Into the Gloss, and according to the article, you can purchase this soap here. Have you ever tried this soap? Any kind of feedback is welcome!
I just finished another photo shoot for Blondy's 2015 Summer Collection last week, and this week they are exhibiting the collection in Shibuya. It's still a surreal experience to see my photos displayed on the walls of their showroom, and for all the kind words I've received from the designer, the press staff and the photographer. Probably one of my favorite brands I've worked for thus far. I couldn't resist and purchased an item from the collection :)
You can also take a look at my previous post about the Spring Collection here.
It's been a long, cold winter in Tokyo, but Hibiya Park hinted at the first signs of spring. There were even some adorable ume blossoms, and others about to blossom. This past week was unusually hectic for me, running around to my various gigs, and rain in between doesn't help with that either. That's why the Nikes + denim combo is my go-to for busy days like those. And also very little makeup for weekend down time. I can't believe only 1 more week until March!
Happy Thursday, and TGI-almost-Friday. I'm sorry I have been a bit MIA about posting new content and responding to comments the past few days.. I read all of your thoughtful feedback and will be responding to them very soon!
These days, I'm addicted to my Maybelline Japan eye makeup products that I mentioned in this post from the Maybelline Japan blogger event. I received 2 Ever Sharp Liners in black and brown, which are waterproof pencil liners. The great thing about these is you can sharpen the ends just by twisting the cap! I stopped using pencil or kohl liners because that was a huge hassle for me, but now I'm back in the game. These really don't smudge at all. And the last product is the Lashionista Care+, which is just like the regular Lashionista, but comes right off with warm water (no rubbing required!), and is also a 2-in-1 in that it takes care of your lashes while you put it on during the day. My lashes look long and healthy when I apply this. Love it!
