Finished Kitchen Light Project - Painting Ceiling

      My husband installed new LED dounwn lights in our kitchen in February this year. He was going to repair the drywall soon, but we were too busy for another renovation project.

      Last month, drywall contractors eventually repaired the ceiling. By the way, we didn't hire them, but our HOA sent them to our home in order to repair other drywall that day, and a head of HOA contractors saw the kitchen ceiling and told us that they would fix it as well. It was a really generous offer! We were very impressed at their professional work! They did it in a few hours. :)


       Then, we painted the ceiling ourselves. Just like the bathroom wall paint we have done, we used Kilz Premium Primer and Olympic One Paint.
KILZ Premium High-Hide Stain Blocking Interior/Exterior Latex Primer/Sealer, White

Olympic One Tintable Semi-gloss Latex Enamel Interior Paint and Primer in One (Gypsum OL133 N32)


      We finally finished our kitchen light project! :)

      The reason why our HOA sent drywall contractors to our home was that we had a problem with a ceiling leak in our living room in January and February because of California's historic winter storms. It heavily rained in Southern California last winter, and our condominium had leaks from the roof. That's why our HOA repaired the roof and fixed the ceiling in our home (It took six months to finish it.). We were going to replace old carpets to new laminate flooring in our entire home, but the HOA contractor recommended us to replace it to vinyl flooring because laminate is not 100% waterproof. That's why we changed our plan. We purchased luxury vinyl planks and now working on flooring project. :) I'll write about it next time. :)

6 Best Japanese Facial Sheet Masks Loved by Japanese Beauty Experts

     Today, I read an article about Japanese facial sheet masks from Japanese beauty magazine, Maquia Magazine October 2017 Issue. The article shares best facial sheet masks loved by famous Japanese beauty experts, who are Hiromi Kobayashi, Megumi Kanzaki, Sachiko Abe, Minako Yamamoto, Miho Ishii, Yuiko Oda, Teruno Taira, Yumi Fujii and Anna Nagata. Today, I'm going to share with you 6 affordable Japanese facial sheet masks they recommend. 



1. Lululun Face Mask ルルルン フェイスマスク
 1500yen - 35 sheets
Lululun Face Mask

・Apply on dry skin, after cleansing.
・Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes.
・Use daily.
・Can be purchased at many drugstores in Japan.

        As I mentioned in my previous entry, The Most Popular Facial Sheet Masks in Japan, Lululun facial sheet mask series have been very popular in Japan. This facial sheet mask is very affordable and perfect for everyday use. I think Lululun Face Mask is one of the most well known Japanese facial sheet masks outside Japan.

Pink - Balanced Moisture
White - Light Moisture
Blue - Extra Moisture








2. Minon Amino Moist Purupuru Moist Skin Mask ミノン アミノモイスト ぷるぷるしっとり肌マスク
1200yen - 4 sheets
Minon Amino Moist Purupuru Moist Skin Mask
・Apply on dry skin, after cleansing.
・Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes.
・Use 1 to 2 times a week.
・Can be purchased at drugstores in Japan.

     I mentioned this mask in my previous entries, 3 Best Japanese Facial Sheet Masks Won Beauty Awards in Japan, The Most Popular Facial Sheet Masks in Japan and Top 7 Japanese Facial Sheet Masks That Rescue Your Dry Skin. Minon is a well known brand which makes skin care products for people who have very sensitive skin. Many Japanese beauty products are usually gentle to the skin as compared to US products. Yet, I believe that Minon is the most gentle skin care product in Japan. When your skin is very sensitive, sometimes using poorly made sheet mask irritates your skin and makes even your skin condition worse. Many Japanese people who have very sensitive skin reviews that this is the one they can trust and truly improves their skin condition. The sheet feels so soft and smooth. The thick gel with active ingredients in the mask hydrates your skin very well.  If you have very sensitive skin and look for allergy safe skin care products, I recommend you to try Minon Amino Moist Purupuru Moist Skin Mask.






3. Shiseido Senka Perfect Silky Mask 資生堂 専科 パーフェクトシルキーマスク
1058yen - 28 sheets
Shiseido Senka Perfect Silky Mask
・After cleansing and applying keshosui (Japanese lotion), apply this sheet mask on your face.
・Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. After that, apply nyueki (Japanese milky lotion).
・Use daily.
・Can be purchased at many drugstores in Japan.

       As I mentioned in my previous entry, 3 Best New Facial Sheet Masks in Japan, Senka Perfect Silky Mask was ranked number three as the best facial mask award of the first half of 2017 on @cosme! It has plenty of rich and thick beauty serum and is one of the most affordable Japanese facial sheet masks, so you want to use it every day. :)  






4. Lululun Face Mask Lululun One White ルルルン フェイスマスク ルルルン ONE WHITE
1500yen - 5 sheets
Lululun Face Mask Lululun One White
・Apply on dry skin, after cleansing.
・Leave on for 10 minutes.
・Use once a week.
・Can be purchased at Loft, Plaza and some drugstores in Japan.

        Lululun One White has been also very popular in Japan. According to Lululun, Lululun One White is the greatest facial sheet mask in all Lululun series, and it works like as if you got a facial done. It contains high quality ingredient of micro serum oil. Compared to their original Lululun Face Mask, Lululun One White is more expensive, but it's high quality and you can apply it only once a week.





5. Saborino Morning Face Mask サボリーノ 目ざましシート
1300yen - 32 sheets
Saborino Morning Face Mask
・Apply on dry skin right after wake up.
・Leave on for 60 seconds.
・Use daily.
・Can be purchased at Plaza, Lawson convenience stores and some drugstores in Japan.

       I mentioned about Saborino in my previous entries, Saborino - New Popular Japanese Facial Sheet Mask for Busy Morning, 3 Best Japanese Facial Sheet Masks Won Beauty Awards in Japan
and 3 Best New Facial Sheet Masks in Japan. Saborino facial sheet mask has been very popular in Japan these years. Saborino is made for morning skincare. Saborino is an all-in-one facial sheet mask. You don't have to wash your face before using it. As soon as you wake up, apply Saborino facial sheet mask on your face for 60 seconds. Now, your face is ready to makeup!  With using Saborino facial sheet mask, you don't need facial cleanser, moisturizer and makeup primer! :) It's perfect for lazy girls.





6. AlFace Aqua Moisture Sheet Mask オルフェス アクアモイスチャー シートマスク
176yen to 204yen - 1 sheet
815yen to 908yen - 5 sheets
AlFace Aqua Moisture Sheet Mask
・Apply on dry skin, after cleansing.
・Leave on for 5 to 15 minutes.
・Use once or twice a week.
・Can be purchased at Loft and some drugstores in Japan.

     AlFace Aqua Moisture Sheet Mask was just released this spring, and it has already many positive reviews on @cosme. Now they have 6 kinds of facial sheet mask, so you can choose one according to your skin condition.

Diamond Moisture moisturizes your skin.
Crystal Moisture brightens your skin.
Brilliant Herb moisturizes your sensitive skin.
Deep Black moisturizes and makes your skin smooth.
Pure Black brighten your skin and minimizes pores.
Rich Turn makes your skin smooth and glow.

Beams is a Japanese brand which sells high-end casual clothing, accessories, interior goods and so on. Ray Beams is one of Beams' lines for casual women's clothing.

2 Best Japanese Pens - Pilot Dr. Grip and Mitsubishi Uni-Ball Pure Malt

     Yesterday, I finally finished using up all the ink in this ballpoint pen, Pilot Easy Touch Fine. When I finish it, I always feel so good like I accomplished something. :)   Pilot (パイロット) is the largest pen manufacturer in Japan was established in Tokyo in 1918. They expanded their business overseas, so I got this Pilot ballpoint pen in the U.S. :) This is a very affordable ballpoint pen, and I really loved it. It's comfortable to hold and writes smooth. 
Pilot Easy Touch Fine
   
      I've often heard that Japanese stationery goods are really well made and popular for foreign tourists in Japan. Indeed, there are over 100 stationery manufacturer companies such as Pilot, Mitsubishi, Zebra, Tombow and Kokuyo in Japan and have been trying to make better products. Since I grew up and worked in Japan, I've used many Japanese products there. Today, I'm going to share with you two best Japaense pens I've ever used in Japan. If you want to purchase stationery products in Japan, you can find a wide selection of stationery goods at Loft and Tokyu Hands. In addition, most bookstores also sell many stationery goods. When I lived in Japan, I also sometimes purchased Muji stationery goods at Muji branches.
 


No.1 Pilot Dr. Grip パイロット ドクターグリップ
Pilot Dr. Grip
      Pilot released Dr. Grip series in Japan in 1991. They have Dr. Grip mechanical pencil and ballpoint pen. When I was in an elementary school, my friends and I enjoyed using many types of stationery goods. Kawii and fun stationery goods were popular for children, but a few of my classmates (boys) had Dr. Grip. At that time, I was surprised that it's larger, heavier and more expensive than a regular pen. However, it's really comfortable to grip somehow. It's too expensive for children, so I couldn't afford Dr. Grip back then. When I was in a high school, my friends and I were using Dr. Grip every day. I really loved it.  :)  Dr. Grip also has many positive reviews on Amazon US.    
Pilot Dr. Grip





No.2 Mitsubishi Uni-Ball Pure Malt 三菱 ユニボール ピュアモルト
Mitsubishi Uni-Ball Pure Malt
         Mitsubishi (三菱) is also well known company for stationery manufacture. It was founded in Tokyo in 1887. Mitsubishi Pure Malt is a multi pen which has a black ballpoint pen, a red ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil. In Japan, I worked at hospitals and sometimes got ballpoint pens from pharmaceutical companies. I used ballpoint pens a lot on a daily basis but didn't need to buy those. ;) Most companies gave away pretty cheap ballpoint pens to medical staffs, but when I got this one (I still have one.), I thought that it must be expensive. Just like Dr. Grip, it's larger and heavier than a regular pen, and very comfortable to write. :) 
Mitsubishi Uni-Ball Pure Malt
      See? My pen has the name of medicine, Diovan. :) I usually threw away after using up ink in a regular pen, but I purchased refills for it at stationery store in Japan because I loved it so much. :)   
Mitsubishi Uni-Ball Pure Malt

       The grip of this Uni-Ball Pure Malt was made of white oak, which had been used as whisky barrels for 50 to 70 years. They reused whisky barrels to make this Uni-Ball Pure Malt.

New Bathroom Sink, Faucet, Toilet, Towel Bar and Paint - Bathroom Renovation


     As I mentioned in my previous entries, my husband and I finished renovating our guest bathroom!


     These are my entries related to our bathroom renovation.

        The bathroom was very outdated and ugly before. Now, the bathroom looks brand new! :) Indeed, we replaced many items to new ones. Today, I'm going to share with you our new bathroom sink, faucet, toilet, towel bars and paint in this bathroom. :) 




 ■ Bathroom Sink : Kohler K-2699
      We looked for a perfect sized sink for our bathroom. We finally found Kohler K-2699 Bathroom, and he installed it.
Kohler K-2699




     We like the fact that this sink has modern look. :) However, the bottom is quite flat, so it doesn't drain as well as a regular sink does. I need to scrub and wipe the sink at least once a day to remove hard water spots from it.    




■ Bathroom Faucet : American Standard Devonport
     We found the bathroom faucet at our local Costco. It had been $49.99 before, but when we purchased it, it was only $30!

      We are really happy with this purchase! :)






■ Toilet : Kohler Elliston 1.28-GPF (4.85-LPF) White Elongated Chair Height 2-piece Toilet
      Several months ago, we attended Home Depot Do-It-Yourself Workshop to learn how to install a toilet, and we were surprised at how easy it was to replace it. We thought that we could do it for our bathrooms!

      The old toilet used much more water, so we decided to replace it to a new one. :)
Old Toilet



     We went to Lowe's and Home Depot to look for a new toilet. There were many toilets we could choose from.


       We decided to purchase this toilet, Kohler Elliston 1.28-GPF White Elongated Chair Height 2-piece Toilet.

       Actually, it was not easy to take this extremely heavy toilet to our home from the store. Because it was a two-piece toilet, we eventually opened the huge box of this toilet at the store parking lot and separately loaded the tank and the toilet in my small car. ;) Then, from my parking space in our condominium, we used a Cosco Hand Truck to carry the heavy toilet to our bathroom.

      We really love this toilet. It has a very impressive flush for its water usage.

■ Towel Bar : Moen BP5824CH Aspen 24-Inch Towel Bar, Chrome
      I ordered this 24-inch towel bar, Moen Aspen BP5824CH, for our bathroom.
Moen BP5824CH Aspen 24-Inch Towel Bar, Chrome

     It was easy to install, and it looks clean and modern. :)

■ Towel Ring :  Moen BP5886CH Aspen Towel Ring, Chrome
       I ordered this towel ring, Moen Aspen BP5886, for our bathroom.

■ Primer Paint : KILZ Premium High-Hide Stain Blocking Interior/Exterior Latex Primer

     We chose Kilz Premium High-Hide Stain Blocking Latex Primer for the bathroom paint primer. It was more expensive than Kilz 2 Latex, we previously used for painting cabinets, but I liked this primer very much because this one blocked stain very well and resist mildew and moisture.
KILZ Premium High-Hide Stain Blocking Interior/Exterior Latex Primer




■ Paint : Olympic One Tintable Semi-gloss Latex Enamel Interior Paint and Primer in One (Gypsum OL133 N32)

      We went to Lowe's to purchase bathroom paints.


      We chose white, Gypsum, for the bathroom wall paint color with using a painting catalog. We brought the catalog to our local Lowe's, and they created a perfect color for us. :)

Olympic One Tintable Semi-gloss Latex Enamel Interior Paint and Primer in One (Gypsum OL133 N32)


      We also purchased a new painting roller for ceiling.


    We sanded walls, ceiling and the bathroom door with BLACK+DECKER BDEMS600 Mouse Detail Sander. Then, we cleaned surfaces with TSP. Then, we painted the primer two coats and white paint three coats.


      We painted ceiling white as well. By the way, I think that one of the biggest improvements for this bathroom is this new ventilation fan. He replaced noisy old one to this Panasonic one in February this year. This is very quiet and works great! :)
Panasonic FV-08VQC5 WhisperSense 80 CFM Ceiling Mounted Ventilation Fan with Dual Sensor Motion and Humidity Technology







    It took many months to renovate this bathroom. I'm really satisfied with our white bathroom. :)  We will work on our master bathroom renovation as well. However, now we are working on replacing flooring in our entire home. (That's why I have been very tired from doing it every weekends.)
