French pharmacy haul time! Well, first, this is my first time blogging in Japan. I had planned the previous post so you were not staying too long without any content here but, well I'm right now slurping on a Caramel Frappucino at Starbucks in Shibuya and talking to you guys. It feels much cooler than my usual room to be honest. I will certainly do weekly or monthly update about my life in Japan (for the newbies here, I plan to stay at least one year in Japan and currently have an internship as a marketing assistant in Tokyo). I arrived on Wednesday and I have been really busy since I started working on Thursday that I couldn't even settle properly. No need to tell that I am still extra jet lagged, almost felt asleep twice a work and couldn't even talked properly to my boss (good impression). But the internship seems to be extremely interesting and could be a really good start to a future career in Japan. Anyway, I can't promise to post here extremley regularly, first because my schedule between work and week-end with friends will be quite heavy, at least at the begining, and then, I will have to cut down my expenses on beauty products if I want to survive here as an unpaid intern, which means less reviews but maybe more original content (if you have any tag ideas for exemple, share them with me in the comment down below). I'll do my best to keep posting at last once or twice a week anyway.

On to the haul now. Just before leaving for Japan, I stocked up on a few skin care products that I know are much more expensive here in Tokyo. First, a tiny bottle of Bioderma micellar water. I first wanted to get the big version of it, but let's be real I was in a serious suitcase issue. Moreover, it is actually my very first time purchasing it. Such a shame for a frenchy, I know. I have used it a little since and it really does the job! I also repurchased two of my favourite skincare product from La Roche Posay from their Effaclar Duo range. The first one is the Effaclar K Soin Rénovation Peaux Grasse Anti Récidive, which is basically a face cream for oily skins which is supposed to smooth the texture of your skin. It's a product that I really love, it keeps my skin hydrated and really makes it look smoother and prettier. The little tube on the right is the well known Effaclar Duo + which is a cream to use specifically on spots and acne areas which will help you get rid of your imperfections. Once again, I have noticed an improvement in my skin everytime I have been using it. Well that's it for today loveys, I talked to you soon and don't forget to follow me on instagram for more japanese updates (say the girl who haven't post anything there yet).


  1. I've tried both Micellar water and Effaclar cream when I had acne.
    These products have been so popular lately.
    Have a nice day!

    1. Yes the bottle is so tiny and cute!

  3. I have yet to try Bioderma... it is just so hard to find here in the US! Also, it is so cool you are in Japan right now! Eat lots of Japanese food for me :D

    1. Haha doing it girl !! Overeating since I'm here but it's so good I just can't fight <3

  4. I love bioderma but it's just too expensive to buy outside France. So next time in France I'm stocking up! x S.
