Yay! So I went to Daiso Japan for the first time….FINALLY! If you’re not familiar with Daiso Japan, it’s a store that sells items for $1.50 (unless marked otherwise). I’ve seen a couple hauls from Daiso, so I knew I had to go and check it out for myself! So many goodies 🙂 Watch the video below to see all the items I bought! 🙂
After trying out a couple of the products I bought, I decided to do a quick review! I noticed these products got a lot of hype, so I was excited to pick them up and see if they are worth the money (Hey, a $1.50 is still $1.50!)
So let’s check out the BREAKDOWN of all the products I bought at Daiso Japan 🙂
First, let’s look at the PORE CARE PACK…
As you can see, the packaging shows a dramatic difference between the “before” and “after” picture. Yuck! This package also came with 4 nose strips.
As instructions describe on the back, I clean the my skin around my nose and got it slightly damp. I then removed the strip from the transparent sheet and placed it on my nose. The strip did stick to my nose securely, and I did not feel like it was going to fall off.
After 15 minutes, I removed the strip like the instruction said to. This thing hurt a little! It was similar to taking off a band-aid. Because of this I was hopeful and was confident that it would remove my blackheads.
WRONG! As you can see, there is literally NOTHING on the strip (the little white dots you see were actually there originally.) I was hoping to see a dramatic difference in the appearance of my skin, but it looked exactly the same as before. Wah 🙁
Because I can’t read Japanese, I’m not actually sure what the benefits of using this product are (if you can read Japanese, feel free to enlighten me in the comments below! 🙂 ). I’m assuming since it’s a collagen mask there would be firming, tightening, anti-aging, etc. This pack came with 3 sheets. As the directions stated, I cleansed my face while showering and applied the mask to my face for 20 minutes. Simple enough!

I was really excited to try this because anything that makes my lashes look nicer is awesome to me. I tried this 2 ways: 1) I applied it before my normal mascara, let it dry and then applied mascara on top 2) I applied this base and before it dried, I applied my normal mascara. However, this sadly flaked on me 🙁 It did build my lashes and make them look fuller, however, it just didn’t look that nice. A little too clumpy for my liking 🙁 Below, I got a close up so you can see what the brush looks like!

This is something I also saw on other Youtube channels a lot! I’m big on making sure my eyebrows look perfect so I was very interested in this pencil. It has a slated pencil on one side (picture below) and a spoolie on the other side (sorry, I forgot to take a picture of it 🙁 haha )
For me, this was ok. It’s a little difficult for me to work with because it’s very light so I have to kind of “layer” it on to get the desired eyebrow shade. Also, once the slant has worn away, I also had a hard time filling in my eyebrows neatly. It’s just not precise enough for my liking… I also don’t like that I had to press hard to get it to work.
