[Review] This is the future of cotton pads. Unicharm's Silcot cotton pads review. [R]

1 year, 3 months agoveronicaxrowena posted submission on AsianBeauty.

I got this in Japan because of the Cosme rankings and holy crap it's as MAGICAL as they claim. When I first tried using it, I used my usual amount of toner (1.5 pumps) and ended up with toner squirting into my eye. There's just serum dribbling everywhere. Now I only need 2/3 pump of serum instead and it covers my entire face.

It also doesn't rip easily and because of the weird non-absorbant-but-not-really nature of this cotton, I only need 1-2 cotton pads to remove my makeup instead of 2-4.

I've given a box to my aunt & mom-in-law and they're both surprised at how much better this thing is compared to regular cotton pads.

It's really not a gimmick.

[Review] Shopping Japanese Beauty at Strawberrynet [R]

1 year, 5 months agoMay 9, 2018

Shop: Strawberrynet.com

Product Types: High-end Western, Japanese, and Korean skincare and makeup

Shipping:Shipping is free for your first order (no minimum purchase). For all other orders, it’s free with a purchase $50 CAD ($37 USD), or $7 CAD ($5 USD) if you don’t meet the minimum. Shipping to Canada was quoted as 7-10 days and it arrived in 2 weeks (10 business days), so pretty accurate. The products were very well packaged with bubble wrap and nothing was damaged on arrival.

I also ordered this as a “gift” (to myself lol) to see what that was like and I was pleasantly surprised! The shipping box came in a purple ribbon and all the products were giftwrapped (also, they were brand new and shrinkwrapped). Additionally, Strawberrynet included a lovely purple greeting card with the message I entered online (photos below). Best of all, this was all free!

Samples: No free samples (the site doesn’t advertise free samples).

Discounts: Shipping is free for your first order (no minimum purchase). There are also discount sections and daily specials.

Conclusion: Overall, I’m extremely happy with my purchase from Strawberrynet. This is an especially great store if you want to send presents to friends (with free gift wrapping and card!). I look forward to reviewing my skincare products soon 🙂

I've been using mine for several months now. I seriously drench my face with it because of the large amount and affordability LOL. I find that it is great for layering and providing refreshing hydration, but not much else. My skin has been improving lately (less breakouts and inflammation, more even tone), but I'm not sure I can 100% attribute it to Hatomugi. It's mainly hydrating and a little bit calming, if anything. I'm able to use it when my skin is more sensitive as well.

I use Selena Hagaseru Cotton, that are apparently very popular. It has 80 puffs that can peel to 5 sheets each, so 400 total omg. Soft cotton, appropriate size, holds good amount of liquid for masking. I think these are good for the cost, but it tends to fray a bit around the edges during use and tickles my face. I like the nooni toner mask sheets, it's literally like the sheet mask material cut into squares. But these are only 60 pieces total, so it's more on the pricey side.

Name:

Strength of the pad/puff: (does it easily break and etc)

Lint of the cotton: (when rubbed gently, does it release a lint on the surface of the cotton immediately?)

Roughness/Softness:

Absorbability/Product Wastage: (does it drink up all the products that you put, and ETC.)

[Discussion] Do you finish bad products? [R]

Oct. 28, 2017

I've always been quite sparing and I usually use up every product I buy even though I may not like them. Are you the same or do you toss the previous product immediately when you get a better one? I'm not talking about products that give you acne or otherwise damage you, just products that aren't quite suitable for you or you don't think they're doing anything.

I sometimes even use up makeup that doesn't actually look very good on me. I just suffer and look ugly until I finish the product so I can buy a better one. (Garnier BB cream, I'm looking at you...)

If I can't return it within the window, then I use it up on my body or turn it into a sheet mask with these 5-ply cotton sheets. I used to toss things out due to frustration but I'm trying to become more environmentally conscious. It's a slow process.

[Misc] Alternatives to cotton pads for applying toner? [R]

2 years agoHushplushie posted submission on SkincareAddiction.
Oct. 15, 2017

Okay, so.. admittedly I'm a bit of a weirdo. But I hate, HATE the feeling of cotton tearing apart or squishing together. It's an almost painful sensory thing, like nails on a chalkboard or the awful squeak of styrofoam. Consequently, I can't use cotton rounds / cotton pads / cotton squares / cotton balls for applying toner. I usually (okay, always) end up using clean paper towels to apply toner.

Are there any alternative, disposable products for applying toner that are more gentle than paper towels but don't have the awful squish of loose cotton?

2 years agoHushplushie posted comment on SkincareAddiction.
Oct. 15, 2017

Try the Asian cotton squares! Specifically these Selena cotton puffs

They are made to be pulled apart into very thin layers and have a very fine texture, not unlike a thicker sheet mask. Bonus: They absorb hardly any product.

I have sensitive skin and rosacea. The only physical exfoliation my skin truly handles are these cotton puffs for applying toner or micellar water. I use chemical exfoliation only. Even konjac sponges and super gentle microfiber cloths proved to be too much physical exfoliation with daily use. I double cleanse - I use an emollient cleansing balm followed by CeraVe hydrating cleanser. I don't follow up with the cleanser if I don't think I need to that day.

Asian cotton pads, such as SELENA or Muji ones are quite different and don't tend to fuzz apart. I have cheapo ones from Daiso that aren't layered like these, and even they hold up much better than their Western counterpart. Have you tried?

There are also water activated cleansing cloths but those have their own stuff already so I'm not sure you'd want to use micellar water with those.

[PSA] South Bay Meetup!!! Pt 1 [R]

2 years, 8 months agoTemporary_Viberg posted submission on AsianBeauty.
Feb. 14, 2017

Okay you hyphy South Bay Area folks, it's time to plan a meetup. This one will be specifically in the South Bay, however if you wanna make the trek from the East Bay/SF/wherever, you are absolutely more than welcome!

There are many wonderful places we can meet, so I wanted to have this be our brainstorming post where we can get a feel for who can come, where we should meet, and what days work best.

PLACES

Takashima Cupertino Store

eta THIS PLACE is the winner! A suggestion by u/Temperary_Viberg. They have the hugest variety of AB products in town, and tons of testers. We'd be able to try things IRL that we've only seen through a computer screen! It is in a shopping center with a Fantasia Bubble tea, Asian restaurants, and little shops. The main con of this option is parking (particularly if we are doing this on a weekend).

The Marketplace

This Cupertino shopping center has the largest DAISO in the area (I think), Maruka Market, tons of dining options (including Yogurtland and BeardPapa cream puffs), and a decent parking situation.

Koreatown - Lawrence Plaza

Okay IDK the name of this shopping center on Lawrence Expressway, though I go allllllll the damn time to Lawrence Health Spa to get scrubbed down.This shopping center has a Paris Baguette, a food court, an Asian Grocery Store, and a Face Shop. Decent parking situation. The food court would make it a great place for a swap, but I feel like the Face Shop alone isn't much of an attraction since they are fairly common 'round these parts

-Insert your suggestions here-

I tried to keep my suggestions simple for now, however if you know of a great spot in the South Bay, leave it in the comments!

DATEeta we are looking at Sunday March 5 Sunday March 12How does starting around 2-3pm sound?

WHAT DO YOU WANT? What are you looking to get out of this? Product swapping? Deep discussion about actives? Hot AB gossip? Lifelong friends?

2 years, 8 months agoTemporary_Viberg posted on AsianBeauty.
Feb. 14, 2017

I vote for Takashima Cupertino Store despite the parking situation.

I'd like to see if it's possible to meet at a restaurant or boba place first and then mosey over to Takashima. This gives us time to meet each other and also gives people time to find parking/beat traffic/find us in this confusing plaza etc..Thursday or Friday evenings, Saturday all day and Sunday after 1:00 PM on any date works well for me.

I'd like to product swap (seeking a single Freeset Donkey Milk mask) and pick other AB-er's brains for tips n' tricks on my skin type (dehydrated).

Also - looking to become a MIZON snail convert but haven't been able to patch test any samples on my skin yet!

May possibly bring another friend who is a non-redditor who is completely new to AB skincare.

p.s. This store also sells DIY SELENA multilayer cotton puffs 80 ct useful for Hado Labo DIY face masks with Gokujun lotion for $3.50!

The amount of markup seems to vary quite a bit. For Japanese products it's reasonable; Selena cotton puffs were about $4, Kiku was $14, and the large Dr.Ci:Labo Bihaku was $110. Korean products, on the other hand, were easily double the Amazon prices.

You can also use these puffs, which separate into 5 squares that can be used as a sheet mask. The first review on the Amazon site has step-by-step instructions. These are what I use with my Hada Labo serum or extra sheet mask serum.

Thanks!

Nov. 2, 2015

This is a post I just made in a cosmetic/skin care group I belong to on FB.

I have used both the Shirojyun and the Gokujyun, and I will tell you that the Hylauronic acid in the Gokujyun is very different! My skin is MUCH more soft, supple, hydrated, and dewy soft now that I switched.

Ultimately it's a matter of do you want drenched moisture, or do you want lightening?

Here is information about Gokujyun, how to apply it, the difference between milk and lotion, and what to use and why. Enjoy! :D

I can't express how much I love my skin care routine, and I wanted to share it here, because it's from a Japanese market, and I think a lot of us may not get to interact with this great line because it isn't in English or very well known in western markets. Let's change that! I'm here to drop some Japanese skin care knowledge on you. grin emoticon haha

I love Hada Labo. I talk about their products all the time. Hada Labo makes the most amazing stuff, and the most amazing product they offer, imho, is the Gokujyun Hada Labo line. It uses special forms of Hylauronic Acid to create the most plump, supple, DRENCHED with moisture skin you have ever seen, and it isn't an expensive line. The bottles run from $15-$20 each and they have replaced Perricone, Origins, Boscia, and Murad skin products for me.

I start out with a Hylauronic face wash. I usually use Hada Labo, but they were having a sale at my Japanese market, so I tried a different hylauronic face wash by Softymo. It's okay, but I don't think that the face wash is the most important product I use, so my face wash varies depending on what is on sale and what is available. Then I pat the skin dry, very lightly, leaving some moisture there. Then comes the fun part! I use these pads: http://www.amazon.com/SELENA-Multi-Layer-Cotton-Puff-Count/dp/B00260T94K/ref=pdbxgy121img2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0X1KG3AHHV1PRRDTJSB4

to create a mask. One of these pads has 5 layers, so I take one pad, soak it, wring out completely, and then soak it in Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion. Lotion in Japan isn't what we are used to here, it's a clear viscous fluid that acts more like a moisturizer and toner, and it prepares your skin for the moisture it is about to recieve. Soak those pads in the lotion, and squeeze it gently together so that the lotion is all over the pad. Seperate the pads into their sheets, you should have 5 sheets. These pads stretch too, so very gently, stretch the pads out so that they will cover eveything you need it to. It can stretch up to about double it's size, in my experience. One sheet goes on the forehead, on on the chin, chin, nose, and one on each cheek. Leave this on for 5-15 minutes. For super moisture, take some saran wrap and lay it over your face with the pads, making a hole for your nose to breathe, obviously. You can leave that kind of mask on for over an hour if you like, and trust me, you would like. grin emoticon So now that we have the face mask done, we take off the pads, and I usually like to apply them to the neck and decolet for a few minutes before I throw them out.

Then we apply the Gokujyun facial milk. This is much more close to what we know as "lotion" here in the west. It is a lightweight moisturizer that, after the lotion mask, really plumps up, hydrates, and seals in all that moisture. The face feels soft, supple, and completely perfect after. I have never experienced breakouts with this line in anyone I've ever worked with or known. Hada Labo Gokujyun also makes eye masks, if you want to pamper yourself, but I usually apply the cotton pads to the under eye while I'm doing the cheek, so it seems like you can make your own.

This line is a lifesaver for me, especially in the winter. This line has saved me money, made the people I work with VERY happy, and makes my skin so fucking perfect that I get compliments when I have no makeup on, all the time. It's a great line, especially for the coming cold season, when it gets to be so dry and cold that our skin gets shot to hell.

I just wanted to share this Asian cult classic. It's such a popular product in Asia that one bottle sells every few seconds. There is a reason it's so popular, because it's amazing.

Hada Labo also makes whitening and anti aging products with their special kind of Hylauronic Acid, but the Gokujyun is really the super moisturizing line. If you are interested, the red bottles are anti aging, the blue are whitening, the moisturizing line that I'm talking about here is in white bottles.

So definitly try this product next time you run out, and you don't want to spend too much money, or maybe you just want to try a new skin care routine. This stuff is a God send to me. It makes the people I work with have perfect skin, and it makes my job so much easier. I can't rave about it enough.

hopefully some of your CCs on your forehead will subside during the time without actives. While on an actives break, try to pay a bit of attention to your skin to figure out if a product is giving you closed comedones. Juuust in case.

Just a reminder to apply creams/moisturizers from light --> thick (idk the consistency of a lot of those except the Benton steam cream and the starfish. IIRC the starfish was lighter than the Benton, so I'd probably put that on first. But if you get good results, then don't feel the need to fix what isn't broken)

Also, in order to retain moisture, I've found that patting in my products has done wooonders. And you can totally do that now!

I imitate how Youtuber Hanbyul does it. Part two of her routine. I've seen other people press their whole palm on their face.

Glad I could help!

Edit: oh btw the cotton pads in the YT video are like these. I bought those from Amazon over a year ago and I still have a lot in the box. They're thin, so you dont waste a lot of product being absorbed into the cotton.

[Misc] Do you have a routine before a big night out? [R]

Hey all, Off to a big birthday bash tonight and got thinking about all the prep I want to do to my skin first (Oil cleanse, Sheet mask, Mouisturise heavily etc) to help my make up stay as well as prevent as many breakouts as possible.

Do you have any additional or different steps in your routine before a big night out?

Lips: Sugar scrub followed by hyaluronic acid on wet lips followed by lanolin

Face: I peel apart the layers of these cotton pads and soak them in water and Hada Labo hyaluronic acid and then cover my face with them like papier mache. Then I put a silicone mask cover over that whole mess and chill out for a while. (The items linked are just the ones I use; I don't know whether there are better alternatives. I do love the Hada Labo stuff though.)

[Personal] Damn you, moisturizers. Why do you all hate me so much? [R]

I'd definitely skip the vitamin c and AHA until you find a basic routine that works.

Vaseline prevents moisture loss but doesn't add any water, so one thing you could try is a hyaluronic sheet mask (Amazon has some, or you might be able to find an Indeed or Hada Labo one at your local drug store) followed by vaseline, or the make your own sheet mask thing where you saturate one layer of these with water, add hyaluronic acid, and then cover your face with those for about fifteen minutes before slathering on your vaseline. (Apply the vaseline immediately after using the mask or DIY mask, otherwise, the humectant might draw water out of your skin. Also, remove the mask before it dries for the same reason.)

My skin is prone to stinging and some redness, and I love Eucerine, which was recommended by someone on here. It's made of relatively few ingredients, so there's less to potentially irritate your skin, and it doesn't sting at all on me. I've also heard really good things about Nivea, so try that first since you have it already.

Make sure you avoid hot water on your face, and skip any form of physical exfoliation for now. (Remember to never use an apricot scrub, even when your skin is feeling strong, because it can cause microtears.)

Finally, since you don't seem to be using a sunscreen ATM (and I certainly understand why), it's important to avoid sun exposure. Something like 60-90% of UVA rays get through window glass, apparently (learned that here and was horrified about all the years I spent not protecting myself from that), so keep that in mind as well.

What are your first-world make up problems?! [R]

> Daiso silicon mask cover

Oh man those are so fucking hilarious looking. I use the rectangular cotton pads with my Hadalobo Gokujun lotion and I could really use that mask because they kind of fall off if I'm not careful. But..... so serial-killery.

Humble beginnings. Thank you /r/AB!!! [R]

Ooh, I have those cotton pads. They are Selena Multi-Layer Cotton Puffs, and I really like them. I paid like $7 for mine, which is crazy for cotton pads, but they are so much nicer than normal ones because they don't leave lint behind, and peel easily. Here's the link, I'm sure I won't format it right: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00260T94K?psc=1&redirect=true&ref=ohauidetailpageo08_s00

Are sheet masks recyclable in any way? [R]

I obviously love sheet masks as much as anyone in this sub but an unsettling thought is nagging at me. Since sheet masks are single use and individually packaged, they seem to me to be quite wasteful. Is there any way to recycle sheet mask packaging? I've tried to search the sub but nothing came up. What are everyone's thoughts on this?

Ok so I came across some information about the [Chizu Saeki lotion mask method] (https://zavanitydresser.wordpress.com/2013/03/02/the-3-minute-lotion-mask-technique-by-chizu-saeki/) which is a DIY mask which reminded me of your post. You use [special cottons] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00260T94K/ref=pdlucrhsim0101tttllh?ie=UTF8&psc=1) that peel into 5 layers, soaked in water first then in your lotion, stretched and placed on your face. This is an earth-friendly alternative that makes use of lotions you already have. I'm actually gonna try this myself soon~

I know the Japanese cotton pads are all the rage right now. If the Pbusardo video was any indication, they are rightfully all the rage right now. But I have a hard time believing that there is only one company in the world that makes a cotton pad like that. I'm not saying it's impossible, but in this day and age, I find it unlikely.

So my question is, has anybody had any luck finding an alternative from another manufacturer?

I have bough Muji and Selena, Muji has a worse flavour than regular organic cotton, Selena is better, maybe on par, I'm not sure if I'm remembering the organic cotton with rose coloured glasses
