Can't believe I am halfway through writing about my adventures in Japan! I miss Japan so much! It is my most favorite country and I love it every single way. But sadly, with our house renovation coming soon, we just do not have the budget to visit this beautiful country this year again. #Japan

I received the +Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Creme from +Sephora​ for review last week. This is a luxurious and highly moisturizing cream that moisturize all day long. Its antioxidant ability helps to neutralize and protects my skin from free radical damages caused by environmental aggressors while recharges it with the power of 8.

I have fallen deeply in love with this cream after using it for just a week. The packaging is exquisite, the formula is silky light and the scent is simply intoxicating. Thank you Sephora for offering this opportunity to try and review this product. I am more than happy to adopt it into my nightly skincare routine! #sephoramy #EsteeLauder

Checking out of our Airbnb Apartment in Kyoto, we store our luggage at the Baggage Room at Kyoto Station before heading to Kiyomizudera Temple. Kiyomizudera Temple, also known as Pure Water Temple, is one of the oldest and most popular temple in Kyoto. Its name is derived from the pure water flowing from the Otawa Waterfall. An iconic landmark of Kyoto, the temple is registered as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. #Japan

I have been wanting to try Powder facial cleansers because they are such a big hit in Japan right now. The Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder is perhaps the most popular and best-selling drugstore brand powder facial cleanser in Japan. So I decided to pick this up to try when I was in Japan. This is also the most expensive item I have bought in a Japanese drugstore.
