Mini Asian Haul

I normally don't like to do haul posts unless there's a review included in it but I don't have a review. I'm actually sneaking in a post in between scheduled posts.

I mentioned in my previous post that I pet sit for my friends when they travel to Japan and Korea. At first they were paying me but we decided that instead of them paying me, I'd rather that they bring back things for me to the equivalent of what they'd be paying me.

They just got back from a trip to both Japan and Korea and I'm so excited with what they brought back.

I had never heard of this brand before but it's apparently quite popular. It's a trial-size sampler pack of the RJ Skincare line.

RJ stands for Royal Jelly. It is a subsidiary of Yamada Bee Farm and the RJ line is made with the honey that is farmed there. I've read many good things about honey in skin care. It's supposed to be moisturizing and helps to lighten the skin. I can't wait to try it!

DHC Moisture Fruit Foaming Cleanser and Gel Cream. Although the Moisture Fruit line has been out since 2010, I think, I hadn't heard of it before. I believe that it is a Japan only release. I've used other DHC products before and really like it so I'm quite hopeful that this will be the same.

The little boxed item was included in the DHC package but I have no idea what it is. Anyone? The only thing that I could read was "mineral oil". Most of it was in difficult kanji so I'm stumped.

From Korea is a Tony Moly Cats Wink Mascara, curling and longlash. I haven't tried this before either so it will be interesting to try.

I really love how cute the tube packaging is. Sorry, it's not really clear because it's still in the cello wrap but one of the ends has cat ears and a cat face. When I do a review of this mascara, I'll be sure to include a better picture.

I also received but not pictured, two boxes of snacks--Tokyo Banana and Shiroi Koibito. They are my favorite snacks. I also got two Hello Kitty utility knives and an Arashi book. For those who don't know, Arashi is a J-Pop boy band.

I hope that everyone is having a good week so far.
