Hello Interwebz! Surprisingly, I found all of my lost photos and videos on my SD card after I put it back into the camera and used the camera a few times. What?! I count myself lucky and am so grateful to have found my lost hard work. I’d like to thank Dumb Luck for making this post possible.
Once again, I found myself at Daiso and bought everything I could carry in one armload. I only dropped something once and was able to pick it up with my pinky finger. Everything in this post was less than $27 including tax. Daiso does not allow refunds or exchanges, but their stuff is so cheap and pretty decent quality that it’s not really worth the time or effort to return things anyway. I have yet to be displeased with anything I got there. Also, I have been looking for most of this stuff for months after seeing and not getting them and then seeing raving reviews for them online.
The gel pens and colored pencils in the background were things I already had, but everything else was from this trip. I also got a few things that are not pictured because they didn’t have anything to do with any of my beauty, skincare, or art projects and were put to use before I even started taking pictures for this post.
Beneath these pens was my lingerie bag. I recently bought some brassieres on Bare Necessities and want to take care of them since they were a bit pricey (by my standards). If you don’t know what Bare Necessities is or would like a review post about the site, let me know. Moving on, the bag has worked well so far and was only $1.50, much cheaper than every other lingerie I’ve had. You can also see my new brush pens, kneadable eraser (had to knead it before I snapped pics), and an ink pen. The Daiso by me carries three varieties of these Zebra brush pens and I already had one. I have been looking for the other two, but never found them until this trip. The kneadable eraser is scented like fake pineapple, but I saw it in a review video on YouTube and it worked well, so I have been on the lookout for it. The ink pen was also on my list after seeing a review of it on YouTube. It was the most expensive thing I bought, at a whopping $5, but it’s supposed to work pretty well. I’ll be testing them out and posting about them in a later post.
Here, we have paint brushes, a facial exfoliator, and an acrylic face massager. One of the dudes I follow on YouTube said that most of the brushes that he used in his videos were from the [Japanese] dollar store, so I wanted to try these. The face massager and exfoliator are things I see used alot in Asian skincare videos and I have been wanting to try them without spending too much money because I never know how my skin will react. The physical exfoliator is rubber and is pretty gentle on my face. I use it mostly in the shower either to wash off an oil cleanser or after washing off a clay mask. The massager is acrylic rather than jade, which is what I see all over the internet. It does the job, though. I’m still working on the method, but I could tell my face looked less bloated all over after using it for a few days in a row. So, maybe there is something to this massaging method.
I think that I may have been most excited about the new organization accessories that I bought. I’m not really a pink girl, but I wanted these items to match. They actually helped me carry things around the store, so the items proved their use even before I bought them. Originally, I wanted to buy mini drawers to store my masks. Then, I remembered my lessons from the Clutter Bug – I need visual organization. If something is not in my face and easy to access, I will not use it. So, I decided on organizing my skincare in a way that I could see and access items easily.
