“Hello from Tokyo!” says my tote bag.
Um…I wish I was saying hello to you from Tokyo. Instead, I’m waving to you over the interwebz from my cluttered hallway while holding this Shiseido Hello Toyko tote.
The cute characters in the print remind me of those gummy candies at the Asian store.
Ooh! — what if the tote came with peach gummy rings!? That would be awesome.
It’s an online exclusive gift-with-purchase available now on the Shiseido website, and you get it, along with a skin care sampler set with extra big sample sizes, with any $75 purchase (excluding gift sets).
There are four skin care sets to choose from, too (but only the one tote). There’s one set for fine lines, another for brightening, one for fading dark spots, and a set for clear skin.
Most of Shiseido’s products are available on their website, so there’s a lot to choose from. One thing I use and love is their Ibuki Quick Fix Mist ($25). It’s a setting spray to keep greasy skin in check.
I think their lash curler is pretty good, too.
The Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother ($23), Synchro Skin Foundation in Golden 5 ($45) and Facial Cottono ($10)
I’m actually testing a few new Shiseido products right now. I’m using their Synchro Skin Foundation ($45), which is an oil-free foundation with sunscreen and a pump applicator, and I’m using the darkest shade available, Golden Sand 5.
I put a little on my face this morning to see how it sits on the skin, and it feels and looks lightweight, which is what I’m into these days.
I’m also trying the Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother ($23), which I wear on my cheeks.
Oh! — bourgie moment. The famous Shiseido Facial Cotton. This huge pack of 165 sheets is $10, which is expensive for a bunch of disposable cotton pads, but I’ve been dying to try them because they’re supposed to be supernaturally soft and moisturizing, too.
Are they necessary? Probably not… But I might change my tune if they’re good. ?
Anyway, the tote and skin care sampler are available right meow on the Shiseido website through August 27th, if you’re interested.
