Before I start with the review, please if you’re not familiar with the ins and outs of the exfoliating/acid toner, read this article about it first before you try to find yourself one. If you want to know whether you need an exfoliating toner or not, you can read it here. My apology, both posts are in Bahasa Indonesia.

I brought several things during my trip to Japan, but the decision made purely based on whether it’s travel friendly size and whether I can finish the product during the trip so I can finish them up. Nothing special. What’s important is that I have every single product that I need for my routine. Among the products that I’ve brought with me during the trip, I’ve finished three. Sadly, these are not my most favourite products. Find out why by reading the review below.
- Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm
I know this balm come as a highly raved product from a skincare brand that is highly loved by so many. But I’m sorry, I’m not feeling it! It’s really pricey at USD 50 for 100ml, it’s really quite expensive. The texture is a bit gritty, I don’t feel the extra tranquility experience when I’m spreading it around my skin because it’s not so easy to work with and the scent isn’t that lush. I’ve had better experience with Clinique and The Body Shop Cleansing Balm. I feel really lucky that I got this as a share jar so I’m not stuck with a whole jar of cleansing balm that I didn’t like.

I did few posts on my Instagram for my Japan beauty haul, but since I received lots on enquiries regarding the haul, I thought I’ll sum up everything here. It’s been months since I last post on the blog. Most days, I just did a #deszellminireview on the blog. But I figure, in terms of searching information and categorising, blog is still much easier.

This picture basically sum up my haul.
Here’s a question I get alot: where do I usually purchase all the beauty products?
- Department store. Walk into a department store, whatever it is, and find their beauty floor. If I want to find a specific brand, I will visit their website and go to their store directory and find one near where I’m staying or the area I will be visiting that day. Otherwise, I will just randomly go into the beauty floor and see what caught my interest.
- Drugstore. There’s a number of drugstore in Japan, the well know one is Matsumoto Kiyoshi. But if you see a store that have beauty products and sheet masks in front of it and looks like they’re selling beauty products, just go inside and see what they have in store.
- Natural products specialty store. Sometimes you will see one like this either inside a department store or free standing store. I will just go inside and see what they have in store.
