It’s a long running gag in the expat community that Japanese are quick to tell you that Japan is a country of four seasons. But, I’ve yet to run into a Japanese person who can tell me why this country is so darn humid in the summer — and dry as a bone in the winter. Tokyo is particular, is a nightmare. The humidity can get as high as 80% percent, but come winter it drops all the way down to 10%!

In case you missed it, FALL. IS. HERE. Vibrant summer colors are fun to play with, but I prefer the subdued tones of fall like navy, maroon, orange, and khaki, especially when it comes to makeup. Here are my Japanese Skincare and Makeup Picks For Fall.
A while back, I introduced one of my favorite lip products, Canmake’s Stay-On Balm. Well, I’m here with something that’s even better. While browsing the overflowing aisles of the budget store Picasso (Don Quijote’s smaller sister brand), I picked up two shades of KATE’s brand new lip cream, CC Lip Cream N (CCリップクリームN).
After much deliberation, I decided to subscribe to my very first beauty box. Naturally, I chose Raxy, the beauty box from Rakuten Japan. The idea of trying new beauty and skincare products while racking up Rakuten points was too good of an opportunity to pass up!
