I'm such a nostalgia monster. I can't resist anything that reminds me of my time spent in Japan. When I'm browsing websites like Sasa, I inevitably end up putting one or two things in my basket that I don't need. However, hauls like the one I have today make this particular habit worth it. It's also a reminder for me of just how powerful scent memory is.
This was the sole reason why I went to Sasa. I had heard about the craze over dejavu's Fiberwig and felt compelled to give it a try. I've already tried it, and I'm really excited to do a review. It's definitely unique, and I completely understand why people would go crazy over the formula. The product's packaging says right on the front that it's less mascara, more painting on false eyelashes. And honestly, I really agree with the packaging for once.
Once upon a time, my dorm room in Japan always smelled just like these two products. I had a room spray that smelled exactly like the Kanebo Dreamy Bloom Rose Hand Cream. Putting on this lotion immediately takes me back to opening up my dorm room after a long day of trekking around the city. So, you know, it was only natural that I had to get the bath salt also.
Before I got hooked on Shiseido's Ma Cherie line, this Ichikami set was the first shampoo and conditioner I purchased upon arriving in Japan. I had actually managed to leave behind all necessary hygiene toiletries beyond my toothbrush and deodorant, so I had to hobble on down to the convenience store after getting off my infinitely long flight. Lucky for me, Japanese convenience stores are amazing. I even managed to pick up a towel at the convenience store.
