When I was in Japan, I picked up a couple of skincare products. I wasn’t particularly looking for anything in specific since I wasn’t in need for anything. However, I still managed to pick up the stash below which I thought wasn’t too bad.

Japan Haul

As you can see, it’s mostly cleansers and sunblocks. Just because they are so cheap there! And oh the variety!  I did not pick up any Hada Labo products as I am not a big fan, and it’s still relatively affordable here in Malaysia.

I have only used a couple of the items from my haul, and I would like to tell you how much I love this cleanser! It’s not a new product, but I thought it’s still worth sharing.

Speedy Perfect Whip

I picked up a bottle of this Perfect Whip (by Shiseido) from one of the small drug store, and it’s sold right out of the box. They did not even bother to arrange it on the shelves because it’s selling so fast. The refill pack was about 30% cheaper than the bottle, and unfortunately, it’s also harder to find the refill pack than the bottle.

As a working adult, handbag is one of my staple accessories to work, and I usually prefer shoulder bag for the room, or sling bags for the hands-free convenience.

However, I tend to fill up my bag too much, and at sometimes it really feels like I am a carrying a kitchen sink around, especially when I have lunchbox and my water bottle together.  So one day, after seeing my friends’ posts of this backpack, I was hooked!

Fjallraven Kanken Backpack

So, I got myself one from Shopbob, it only took 4 days to reach me from the USA 😀 I love express shipping, especially when I can’t wait to receive my purchase!

The wraparound zip opens to one main compartment & laptop sleeve,  and it has a front pocket and 2 sides pocket.

There weren’t many color choices, but I managed to pick this nice peach pink instead of a yellow.

Since it’s meant to be used often and bashed around, I tried to pick a color that’s more dirt resistant.

Fjallraven Kanken Backpack Peach Pink

This backpack has only 1 large compartment and a sleeve for tablet or laptop, however, the sleeve is big enough for a tablet but not a 14″ laptop. It comes with a soft foam that I do not bother to remove, I like it being there to support the bag structure. For the main compartment, it’s big enough for a 15″ notebook,  it is roomy and has more capacity than all my other handbags.
