Does anyone else measure the passage of time by how many beauty products they go through? 
It's been another loong gap since I posted on here, and again, I'm coming back with a quick and easy post of some beauty products I've used up. I really really will post something more fashion/japan related soonnn.... but for now: I've been in my job for 5 months!!! My boyfriend came to stay with me in Japan <3 I celebrated my birthday, had an amaazing day modelling for Galfy (check my ig and @galfy.jp for pictures!) and yeah! Busy busy busy...


But anyway, here are some things I've used up recently!

Bleach London Beer shampoo// I have to admit I was pretty underwhelmed by the last Bleach shampoo I tried- the Live forever shampoo, wasn't bad but just wasn't anything exciting- but this one was really nice! Lathers nicely, smells good, and, of course, that packaging <3

Muji facial soap// not normally one for foaming cleansers, but I am sticking with this one- it's cheap, doesn't irritate or dry out my skin and yeah, the packaging doesn't hurt. I am interested in trying Muji's cleaning oil too, and that also comes in this convenient teeny size, so will definitely pick that up. 

Muji moisturiser// This was just a decent moisturiser, absorbed nicely without being too sticky as some other Japanese moiturisers I've tried have been. I got the bigger size of this because I'm going to stick with it for now. 

(not pictured) essential smart repair shampoo// Cheap but doesn't dry out your hair unlike so many other Japanese shampoos I've tried. I'm going to stick with this tbh. 

Essential Rich damage care 30 second hair mask// You know I'm obsessed with this hair mask, I've been through about 5 in as many months. Super rich, makes your hair really smooth and really affordable. The only downside to this range is how un-instagrammable the packaging is!

Bioderma Micellar water// I bought this for eye make up remover, but I have to say that it didn't do a great job at getting my mascara off and I was kind of put off getting it again for a while, because it's not cheap. 

Hadabisei shinsou bihaku face masks// these were my fave face masks, but I think the formula has changed slightly and there is more liquid in each sachet? At the moment I tend to use the mask one night, and then use whatever is left for another time. (Your girl is cheap, ok?)

Gatsby bleach// This is probably my favourite box bleach I've tried in Japan, although I do think I need to suck it up and go to a hairdresser supply store and get some proper stuff- the box bleach tends to stop at a yellowy colour even if I bleach, wait a week and do another time, which isn't ideal. This one also doesn't come with a hair mask sachet.

Barry M nail varnish in raspberry// I loooved this nail varnish, I wore it so much I actually used the whole thing up! Love it, you can't go wrong with Barry M and I'd definitely get this again once I'm back in the UK.


Omg I need to go and get ready for work now. Battling the feeling of being super behind on *everything* at the moment- I'm also super behind on reading people's blogs too! I've been so tired that I just sleep most of the time I'm not at work... Do any of my *proper grown up* friends have any advice on dealing with work burnout?

Love you guys and catch up again soon! Thanks for reading ♡
