some sasa stuff...

Last week I received my sasa haul. I loved their introduction of the Kevin Beautymaker brand, and I am always needy (;p) for Japanese hair conditioners...I will show you some of my new items, and give some mini-reviews of the things I tried...

My first interest was towards more of Kevin Beautymaker's things. Sasa already seem to have sold out on a large heap of the Beautymaker items. I regretted not being able to buy the Lip concealer.

I really wanted to try the Trans Pore Smoother after reading reviews and seeing results on Jamilla Camel's beautysite (here). I have pores on my nose that are in dire need for 'blurrification'. I picked up the Trans Pore Smoother in light.

I have tried this lovely product on several occasions, and I really like it so far. It does feel a bit silicony when applying, but it transfers in a light and lovely veil that magically dilutes my pores. It is a small jar, though. What it lacks is the power to keep my nose oil free during the day, however, that is not its primary task.

For oil-mopping I purchased some Palangton theatrical powder. Actually, I picked up a Palangton Gift set for curiosity reasons...



The set contains a small jar of Palangton powder, a concealer, and BB cream. I am not a fan of any BB cream I have tried so far, but this one is really light and does not sufficate my skin. I need to use it some more to see if my skin really tolerates or likes it.

The powder is really nice: it has a peachy beige colour and is so incredibly fine-milled. As for oil-reducing qualities...It is no magic tool for my stubborn oily nose, but it keeps my nose shine free for a couple of hours.

The next cleansing cloths were a big dissapointment. I have and love a couple of Kose Softymo cleansing products, but this was absolutely craptastic. First of all: the name. If you mention 'Oil Cleansing' on the box, I expect some kind of oil-dressed cloths. No, nada, the cloths were drizzled in a very alcohol-like lotion that stung my skin like mad...



Ascience had a Five star rating on Sasa.com. It is a hairmask/conditioner especially for....


All progressive Asian beauties...buy the conditioner ;P

But seriously, it is quite good. I have to use it a bit more to see how my hair reacts upon it with more usage, as some conditioners can become absolutely craptastic after a couple of uses, even though it seemed like THE HG in the beginning.




I also bought some Innisfree Trouble Care BB cream. I disliked it. It felt heavily, suffocating and the scent was somewere between a piece of old-fashioned soap and cat-litter...


That leaves me to the stuff I haven't tested yet:

Kanebo C-white tonic in M:


I am always on the lookout for a refreshing tonic that is gentle enough. The whitening and brightening proprieties would be quite helpful for my pigment spots as well.

Shiseido Ma Cherie End Cure Lotion:

Ofcourse, I was enabled by Lotuspalace review (here).

oooooh! You got the trans pore smoother...my HG for concealing nose pores!

I've used bothe Ascience shampoo and Conditioner (VoCE samples) and I really like them.

Enjoy!

what a fun haul! i bet you will have a ball if you visit the huge SASA stores here! There are a lot more stuff in the SASA stores in Kota Kinabau than in Kuala Lumpur for some reason!

I have seen that Kanebo C stuff in many stores and wondering how it is...
