Love Package #1

Over the last month, I received 3 packages. This will be the 1st of 3 posts and will go in order of receipt.

This first package was from Yumeko of A Dream of Tokyo. This all came about because I was traveling to Japan in April and she asked if I could CP a couple of things for her and bring it to Japan with me. Unfortunately, I knew ahead of time that my schedule was so packed that I wouldn't be able to do a meet up with her so we agreed that I would just use a delivery service within Japan. Since I had originally hoped that we could meet up, I had planned in my mind that I wanted to give her the items as a gift so when I ended up having it delivered to her, I told her that it was a gift. Being the good and proper beauty blogger and strong asian upbringing characteristics, she very kindly and oh so generously reciprocated.

There were so many things packed inside the box! A variety of masks (love them!), a blush, a concealer, a beauty nose brush and jelly gloss. I'm assuming that the beauty nose brush is a foundation brush that helps to apply foundation easily to the area around the nostrils and side of the nose. I haven't taken the time to read the back instructions as it takes me a loooong time to read the little Japanese I can read. The concealer stick is very interesting to me and I can't wait to try it out.

Also included in this treasure box was:

A couple of snack items, tea packets, and some cosmetic samples. I can't wait to drink the tea! I'm also excited to try the BB cream sample as I believe it's the one that Yumeko loves.

We're not done yet...

The main item is the facial cleanser. This was newly released when I was in Japan but I couldn't find it when I looked. Yumeko had told me that was being promoted by my absolute favorite J-Pop idol, Ohno Satoshi of Arashi so of course I needed to try it. I've also used Naive Facial cleansers before and really like the brand. Also included in this box of treasures were a couple of rolls of deco tape, a pen and scrapbooking sticker set. The sticker set is so cute and it's Hawaii themed.

Thank you Yumeko for the wonderful love package! I love everything.

Reviews of some items will be coming up later.

Ooooo I hope you enjoy everything! Yumeko really is lovely~ :D

Ah, I recognise that nose beauty brush! Yumeko posted it in her top 8 favourites from Daiso:

So you don't have to read the japanese on the back to figure out what it is for! :D

@Nic Nic--Thank you!

@Jian--Thank you for the link and your great memory. I had read that post but didn't remember the nose brush.

Hahaha no problem! I do have a ridiculously good memory for silly things like this....If only I could apply this kind of memory to my medical studies.

Although in this case I did make an attempt to memorise the things in the Daiso post since I will be sure to visit Daiso in Tokyo this summer!!
