~ Products List in Order ~

NOTE: The pink titles will take you to an online website. All products shown in this video were purchased by me in the US or Japanland, and I am not affiliated with any of the companies. Be sure to scroll down for my Drugstore Alternatives & Recommendations!

星ちゃん 1. Naive Facial Cleanser
You can find this at Japanese supermarkets in the states! It is an oil-based makeup remover, so it gets everything off from waterproof mascara to eyelash glue effortlessly without any tugging. Be sure to remove your eye makeup with a cotton pad first to prevent future wrinkles. This product doesn't work when your face or hands are wet, so make sure they are completely dry.

星ちゃん 2. Natural Aqua Gel Cure
I didn't use it in this video since I've already demonstrated it many times in previous videos, but this is my HG product!

星ちゃん 3. Kibiki Premium Facial Teawash Cleanser / Hadalabo Hyaluronic Acid Foaming Facial Wash
The Kibiki Facewash is a product I got in Japan, and is most likely not available in the states. I will search next time I go to the Japanese supermarket, but I think it'd be less expensive online anyways. When I find a trustable online website that sells it, I will let you all know. I found the Hadalabo foaming cleanser at a Japanese supermarket, but you can also get it online. It's an inexpensive product and great for when you don't have the extra time to make foam. The small bubbles in the foam will help deep cleanse in the shower when your pores are open!

星ちゃん 4. Shukuba-no-Yu Bathing Powder
I found the assorted pack of 10 at a Japanese supermarket for only $7.50! It is definitely a luxurious treat at a super affordable price. The one I used in the video was the "Kusatsu onsen" type. Kusatsu onsen is a very popular hot spring in Japan (I've never been to it though because I grew up in the states), and the powder is Yuzu scented. It is *the most* perfect, pleasant, relaxing scent. Your body will become extremely warm because the onsen powder warms up the body from the core. I am a person who gets cold very easily, but whenever I get in my onsen bath, my entire body stays super warm for hours, even on a freezing winter night! Also, below are the photos of the massage that I do in the tub in order.

星ちゃん 5. Suhada Shizuku Pack Gel
This is another one that I've talked about in my previous videos, here and here. I found this at a drugstore in Japan called Matsumoto Kiyoshi which you can literally find everywhere. It was very inexpensive- I believe less than $15 for that huge package. It lasts forever because you need the tiniest amount to cover your entire face. I personally don't like layering a ton of products onto my face, so this product is perfect since it feels just like water. Plus, it saves me a lot of time with just one step! (Plus eye cream.)

星ちゃん 6. Biore Memoto Uru-oi Pack / Smile Beauty Memoto Care Pack
Like I mentioned in the video, I like Smile Beauty's eye packs better because they are larger (I sometimes even cut it in half) and more jelly-like which allows the product to really sink into the thin skin layer. The various properties included in the product not only lightens the skin, but creates a nice base before applying undereye makeup. This is because eye cream can sometimes be too thick and cause creasing. I find that Biore is more suitable in the morning when you need to vanish blueish, puffy undereye areas.

~ Drugstore Alternatives & Other Product Recommendations ~

ハート Makeup Remover: DHC Cleansing Oil
This is my other all-time favorite makeup remover that I buy if the Naive Cleansing Oil (Olive Green) is out of stock. It lasts for a long time, and not expensive. :)

ハート Cleanser: Naive Facial Cleanser in Green Tea or Peach, Daizu Isofurabon 
Naive is one of my favorite brands when it comes to skincare because their products are very gentle, and their scents are amazing. Scent is one of the most important things to me when it comes to shower products because it's something that's going to stay throughout the day, so I don't want it to be too strong or unnatural. Naive's Facial Cleanser also removes makeup as well, so you can be extra sure that you have zero makeup left on your face.

ハート Blackheads: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
Blackheads are stubborn and hard to get rid of. It won't vanish all of a sudden like magic, so be patient and take your time. *NEVER* use pore strips! Trying to rip out the junk only damages the pores, and with continued use they will forever be left open. (;_;) If blackheads really bother you, you might want to have them removed by a professional because most blackhead products don't work anyway to be honest... Sometimes, saving up to see a professional could end up being less expensive (and actually effective) than buying product after product that doesn't work. I have never experienced a facial/removal in my life, but for blackheads, I find that the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque is the one product that makes a difference even after one use.

ハート Redness: Green tea products work like a charm, and so do any product with rosewater in it. Bath and Body Works has a good rosewater spray you can also use to calm down the redness before applying your makeup.

ハート Moisturizer: NIVEA Cream for the Face, Hands, and Body.
This was another HG moisturizer of mine that I used beneath makeup in the winter (especially in New York!). I loved it because after I would remove my makeup, my skin would feel extremely smooth with absolutely no dry, flaky skin!

Lastly, I didn't show it in this video, but I apply my body cream by Lits Wistea at the end of the day I showed in my All-Time Favorite Skincare Products Haul.

I hope you enjoyed the video and blog post! If you have any questions, feel free to write me below or on the YouTube video! I saw that many of you requested additional routines such as my Body Care, Hair Care, Daily Diet Menu, a What's in my Shower video, etc. Thank you for all the positive feedback! I was already planning on doing a Body Care Routine video, but I will add the others to my list of videos to make, too. I will say that I am going to be extremely busy in February with lots of projects, collaborations, and shows, but I will keep you all updated with everything and try to film when I do find the time.<3 Stay connected on my YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter! :)



Thank you so much for reading, and have a great week!

Love this! I want to try green tea products! My favorite Japanese product is Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. It's not flowery or fragrance-y, just effective. It works so fast--my skin has been so smooth and soft for the years I've been using it.

I likes your video. I have question about Kibiki Premium Facial Teawash Cleanser, is it for dry skin or oil skin? Thanks

Hey Melodee! I just bought the Pack Gel online and I'm excited to try it soon. I really like the idea of having minimal skincare routine at night. However, in the morning would you use the Pack Gel too? I want to keep my morning routine minimal as well but I don't know if it would be too moisturizing in the morning. What do you recommend for the morning?

What a great post, thank you!
I've just come back from Japan and took your advice about the Pack Gel. I was just wondering how to use it? Do you apply and then keep it on your face overnight, or apply, wait and rinse off?

Hi Melodee, I absolutely love the products from Kibiki because they are really understated but work so well. My skin actually falls under the type of sensitive skin, and reacts to weather changes, not to mention that it got drier after my years when I moved to Canada! I got Kibiki products back in Japan, when I used to work there as an English instructor, but wonder if they can even be found online at all without the ridiculous markups. The last time I checked on ebay, the price was virtually twice or thrice the original prices in Japan! What a horror!

Hi Melodee,
I'm Nhi. I love your videos and blogs so much, you have such a very nice skin and you are so pretty as well. But I have a question. I'm a Vietnames but now I'm living in the US for studying and I'm 17 years old. My skin got really dry since i came here. I dont use any make up and the only thing i use is the olive oil for moisturizering everyday. It's really helpful but at the same time it make my face kind of oily a little bit. So i want to ask do you have any suggestion about the moisturizer for teenager like me, att day and night too. Thank you so much !

Hi Chuyen! Thank you so much.<, but if I ever try it out I'll def mention it in a skincare video, blog post, etc.! I want to make sure I test out the American and Japanese skincare products I'm currently using for a few more weeks before doing a detailed review on my YouTube Channel, so please look out for that video and comment there if you have any additional questions/comments! Thank you.<3

Hi Melodee!

I love your videos and wish you would make more. Your skin is amazing as well as the happy energy that you bring in your videos. Love that!!!

Do you recommend any product for puffy eyes? I'm using the RoC something but it doesn't seem to do anything for my dark circles and puffiness.

Also, have you used any RoC skin care for anti aging? If yes, what do you think of it?

Last but not least, do you recommend any anti aging moisturizer with spf?

thank you so much for answering my questions.
Good luck and keep up the good work.

I use the Nivea soft moisturizing cream in the white packaging! :)

Hi, when you mention the NIVEA moisturizing cream for the alternative moisturizer you use, do you mean the usual one? (Navy blue container) or the Nivea soft moisturizing cream?



Hi! That's awesome! Thank you so much. I got my Suhada Shizuku Gel Pack at Matsumoto Kiyoshi, which is one of the most famous drugstores in Japan. They are everywhere, so you will have no trouble finding it. (Blue & yellow store display design) Hope you have an amazing time there!

Hey melodee! I've been watching your videos for a while now and I'll be heading to japan for a holiday soon and i was wondering if you could tell me where i can purchase the suhada shizuku pack gel! Your help is greatly appreciated!

Hello Melodee! Thank you because of you I have a very good skin!
Bur I have a question: the natural aqua gel cure.....what is it?
I mean, it is a exfoliators ? You use it every day?

HiMelodee! I first want to say that I really like your videos and I find them very inforative, thank you for posting them ^v^.I was wondering if you could please help me figure out what to do with my poor skin :(. I have sensitive acne prone skin since I was in middle school, I'm 25 now, and I still haven't figured out how to properly take care of it. Certain products have worked for me in the past but after a year or less they just stop working! I gave up and started using proactiv for my acne, which does work but it makes my skin REALLY dry and makes it look I have wrinkles :'(. So to take care of the dryness I use cetaphil sensitive skin lotion but after a couple of hours it makes my skin really oily and shinny. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Hi melodee I'm a new subscriber in your YouTube channal and I'm really interesting in buying some of the products you used in ur skin care video, were can I buy them I live in arizona ,United States or do u know of a store near yuma Arizona were I could go check it out please help me I been wanting to take care if my skin I'm 21 years old. I love Japanese skin products so much Please reply back:)

Hi, Jhae! Recently, imomoko (an online store) stocked the Suhada Shizuku Pack Gels! so if you would like to get it, you can find it there :) In my previous skincare videos, I showed my favorite Japanese drugstore brand called "Isofurabon" which I bought at Mitsuwa, so you can definitely find it there! Just watch my previous skincare routine video on my previous danceandmelodee channel!<3

Hi Melodee, I am really interested in the Suhada Shizuku Pack Gel. I went to a store called Mitsuwa in San Jose CA and I could not find the product. :( I couldn't read Japanese so I was not able to understand any products they had there. There were so many products!! :D Do you know any Japanese Market in CA that carries that product? Or anything that I can subsitute it with? I have reall dry skin and I would like to use a moisturizing night cream.

Hi, Pam! Thanks for the comment :)
I'm glad you enjoyed my YT channel! I actually don't remember the exact store, but I bought it in Yokohama. I'm sure you can find it in Tokyo or anywhere else as well, though! What I know is that you can't find it at any regular convenience store. You should probably go to the skincare section of a pretty big drugstore. Or, you can always search online! (Their website sold it as well.) Hope this helps! Definitely try it out :)
