I’ve just returned with a suitcase of products, I’m still working my way through them all!

Products I loved:

  • Mediheal tea tree sheet masks (available at Don Quixote): calms down skin on the verge of a breakout. The packaging has changed slightly from that shown in the link.

  • Acne Barrier Protect Spots (Cosme and other speciality beauty/skincare stores): seals pimples and turns them into a tiny speck overnight. Seems to work better once they’ve (TMI) popped unfortunately, but still an amazing product. I apply to a clean cotton bud so I don’t contaminate the dropper.

  • SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser (department stores): received this as a sample in a pack. It’s a nice gentle cleanser that visibly brightens afterwards.

    Things that didn’t set my world on fire, but YMMV:

  • Kanebo Suisai Beauty Clear Powder Wash (any drug store): This was described as being coarser than the Tacha Polishing Powder (haven’t tried), but I could barely feel any of the exfoliant. I usually use the Aesop exfoliant which is very coarse so may just be me.

  • Shiseido Macherie Perfect Shower (speciality beauty/skincare stores): Not /AusSkincare and think this really depends on your hair type. It’s described as a perfect cure for bed hair, I have naturally wavy hair and it made my waves partially drop out, so it was neither straight nor wavy - just flat and messy. I’d prefer something like the Bumble and Bumble spray.

  • Canmake Perfect Multi Eye Pallet, Shade 02 (most beauty stores): nice formula, blends well and really lovely warm brown shades. However it’s very much that subtle Japanese eye make up look, I’ve been using Huda, UD and ABH for too long so prefer something a bit stronger.

  • I bought a La Roche Posay sunscreen and BB cream at the same time they started flogging them throughout the Aus Open. There are plenty of threads on them.

    Things I bought and haven’t tried yet:

  • SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and sheet masks (department stores): When in Rome...

  • Shiseido Ultimune (department stores): As above.

  • Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Milk (drug stores and speciality beauty/skincare stores): I saw lots of good reviews for this brand, but the Aqua Booster version. I could only find it in spray form rather than a bottle (perhaps wrong time of year) so bought this instead. There is a gel option too.

  • Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel (drug stores): another sunscreen that was highly recommended.

  • Melano CC Intensive Anti Spot Essence (drug stores): I had to have the concept of a vitamin C serum explained to me so probably not the greatest source. Apparently it’s “more stable”.

  • Kose Softy Mo Deep Cleansing Oil (can’t remeber where I bought this, drug stores and beauty/skincare stores will have it): highly recommended, DHC seems to be well regarded too.

  • Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream (beauty/skincare stores).

    Other things on the must-have list but got to the end of the trip and was all “I’m not paying that”:

  • Shu Uemura Ultime 8 Sublime Cleansing Oil.
  • Hada Labo Shirojyun Lotion.

    I speak schoolgirl Japanese at best, but everyone there is only too happy to help. Screenshot as many products as you can so you can show people in shops.

    It probably goes without saying no matter where you are, but knowing what colours work for your skin is a must. I’m biracial but look completely western, so I found SAs would try and direct me to pink-based makeup by default. My skin is completely yellow-based so I always had to politely decline their recommendations.

    Happy shopping!

Thanks for considering this, here is the Hada labo premium perfect gel

Yeah love heroine mascara, it's truly waterproof! Black is great!

There's a message on their website saying that they plan to soon stock their products in Australia, but I emailed them about it and they said it's not true (wtf?).

However, if you are open to buying online, I was recently linked to an Amazon seller where the CeraVe products are reasonably priced, and the shipping was affordable.

You can find it here.

I am now the proud owner of the Foaming Cleanser, Hydrating Cleanser, and moisturiser in the tub. I can't speak for the cleansers yet, but the moisturiser is quite good but the texture takes some getting used to.

It's sold by Cerave directly too :) 15 just cost me about $160AUD incl shipping yiewww

u/CoolCoolBeans · 2 pointsr/AusSkincare

I actually just had a bottle of cerave hydrating cleanser ship in today.

Make sure the product you're looking to buy is sold and shipped by, and not a reseller.

Edit: This is where I bought the moisturising cream earlier this year

I bought mine off Amazon AU. I paid $19 for mine and free shipping, but just found 3 for $23. Here's the link:

Edit: These are the 73 g jars.

They have been making cerave in the tub with a pump for a long time now. Maybe buy one with a pump and just use the pump-lid for both tubs?

u/em3245 · 2 pointsr/AusSkincare

You can buy it from 50g tube for approximately $48 AUD including shipping. It does not require a prescription.

Sunscreen is more expensive here, and we lack the variety that the US has.

I wear my HG Shiseido Senka Mineral Water UV Gel SPF50 PA+++ (ebay, amazon) 365 days per year, whether I'm going to be inside or outside. It's become part of my daily routine and, because it's a silicone-based sunscreen, doubles as primer. I tend to only wear sunscreen on my arms and legs during the warmer months, and when I do it's La Roche Posay Nutritive Oil SPF 50+ PPD35.

I never reapply though. It's difficult to reapply over makeup, although I am going to have a go at U:na's sunscreen reapplication tips this summer.

I also have a few UPF 50 infinity loop sun scarves from Canopy New York (seems to no longer exist). I wear them over my head instead of a hat if I'm going to be in the sun a lot.
