Current Cleansers

I feel like I change cleansers brands so much, but in actual fact, I probably use the same ones for at least 2 months.
This time, my cleansers have changed from the Orbis Cleansing Liquid to the Hanskin Cleansing Oil Black Head and from Orbis Mild Cleaser to the Softymo Airy Whip.

The Hanskin oil comes in a hard plastic pump bottle with 200mL of product. It's like your typical oil cleanser, nothing too special. It has a slight citrus scent to it and that's about it.
Compared to the Orbis Cleansing Liquid, the Hanskin doesn't wash off as clean. My skin feels a bit oil afterwards so I follow up with a facial cleanser (I always do anyway).
I prefer the Orbis over Hanskin because Orbis washes off cleaner and doesn't have a scent to it.

As for the Softymo Airy Whip, I first saw this on the Muse's blog. I've been wanting this for a long time already but Adambeauty does not ship aerosol cans overseas.
Airy Whip is pretty much a standard facial cleanser except it comes out like mousse. I like how it's kinda pre-lathered up for you. The mousse is dense and really holds up, even when you massage it on your face a few times.
It's got a pleasant fragrance, almost floraly and not too strong. The product rinses off clean without drying out my skin.
There's 180g of product and if you ever have a chance to order or get someone to do a CP for you, you should try this out. Not expensive either, I got 2 bottles at $35HKD each.

Here are just a few pictures from Japan, most of the pictures are on Tim's laptop.
Ayu is plastered everywhere in Japan! It got me excited haha.
This is the outside of a drugstore in Tokyo. I love how they have all the cosmetics I want in one store AND with no SA to be a bitch about it!
Can anyone tell me what this is?? All I know is, there are tons of these kinds of ad trucks driving around, but this particular one got me wondering.

Thanks for the Airy Whip review. I'm planning to get it when I go to HK this winter:]

Eka said...

I'll definitely get a bottle or two of that Softymo Airy Whip. Haven't tried any cleansers of that kind. Anyway, I remember you mentioning about doing a review on the Koji eyelash curler you bought in HK? I saw it while I was in HK but hesitated to buy because I haven't read reviews about it. I'm really looking forward to your review. How much did you get it for, btw? I saw some being sold for 98hkd in Color Mix. :)
