Lip Baby Fruits - Strawberry

Made in Japan

     Lip Baby lip balm seems to be available in a few easily accessible places online, including Amazon, but it will be marked up on sites like that.  I did find this on Global Rakuten and it sells for ¥ 246, which converts to just under $3.00 CAD.  This balm is fine, personally I find it a bit too waxy for myself, but the strawberry scent is good.  The moisturizing level would be low to moderate for me.  I have chronic dry lips.

Fuku Fuku Yu Bath Powder - Monkey

Made in Japan

     I've not yet tried this bath powder.  Testing these types of products out is slow for me.  Our bathtub is shallow and not very spectacular for enjoying and relaxing with bath products.  So, we'll see.  If you have access to a cozy tub to relax in, I found this brand on Yesstyle.com  where these powders retail for approx. $7.85 CAD each.

HADA Riki - Cool Gelma Foot Pads

Made in Japan

     Hada Riki Cool Gelma foot pads, also found on Yesstyle.com  for approx. $6.52 CAD.  I've never tried these types of foot pads, but I've heard of them.  I'm curious to see how it works out.  Maybe I'll test them on the Mr. first haha...just in case.

Lucky Trendy - Crayon Touch Me Eyeshadow - Mermaid Blue

Made in Taiwan

     I can't find this for sale anywhere.  But, it seems to have been made by the Lucky Trendy Group, at some time or another.  That's ok, I will never use this palette.  I'm not a blue shadow type of girl, but if I do wear blue on the eyes, it needs to be a much warmer blue tone.

Pure Smile - Essence Face Mask

Made in Korea

     You can find this brand in many places.  I'm pretty sure I even saw this brand while visiting Edmonton, at T & T Supermarket.  Online, Global Rakuten has just about every version/type you could ever want or need.  These seem to have a large price range.  On average, seems to be between $1 and $2 CAD for one mask.

Cucumber Body Gel Treatment

Made in Korea

     I'm not 100% positive who makes this gel.  I did narrow down the phone number on the packaging to SunSmile co., Ltd.  It's the same number on the back of the Pure Smile face masks.  I'm now mad at myself, for not learning as much Japanese as I should have by now.  Either way, this packaging is questionable, for me.  The boyfriend says it just looks like a cucumber...

     It is somewhat soothing, but not moisturizing enough for myself, especially when it gets in to the winter months in Northern Alberta.  This would be more effective, possibly, during the summer months...or should I say days...the summer season here is approximately 6.38 days total.
