     Daiso Japan Reusable Silicon Mask Cover is the must-buy item of Daiso. As I mentioned in my previous entry, Top 3 Daiso Beauty Products, it is very popular and often sold out at Daiso in Japan!

     I also purchased two Reusable Silicon Mask Covers at Daiso, and I really love them. I always use it when I use a facial mask sheet. The silicon mask really can keep still on my face, so I can blow dry my hair at the same time. You can check out my previous entry, Daiso Japan Reusable Silicon Mask Cover Review.

6. MTG ReFa CARAT
23,800 yen
MTG ReFa CARAT
        MTG is a beauty appliance manufacture company which was established in Nagoya prefecture, Japan in 1996. They first released MTG ReFa series, high quality beauty rollers, in 2009. Since then, it has been very popular for women in Japan and has won many beauty awards there. Indeed, over five millions of MTG Refa Carat have been sold so far.

       MTG ReFa is inspired by professional estheticians' hands. MTG created their famous beauty rollers to allow us to do superior beauty massages at home on a daily basis.      
MTG ReFa CARAT

       MTG ReFa products has a built-in solar panel to capture light and generate microcurrent, which is used as beauty treatments at professional beauty salon. Many Japanese women reviews that they've noticed that it tightens your face and body and reduces wrinkles. Some people reviews that their face is brighter now because it increases blood circulation.
MTG ReFa CARAT
      You can use MTG ReFa while you are watching TV or whenever you like. It is waterproof roller, so you can also massage your face and body while you are soaking in a bathtub. Some Japanese people review that they use it for one minute right before makeup every morning, so it slims down your face and makeups look better on your face. :)

      Many women in Japan review that they purchased MTG ReFa online. Because it's extremely popular high-end product, keep in mind that there are always some fake products online. Its retail price is 23,800yen (without tax), which is equivalent to about $230 (it depends on yen-dollar rate.). If you find very inexpensive one, I think it's not a bargain. It's more likely to be phony. Be sure to purchase it from trusted sellers or official stores.  Nonetheless, it's also pretty hard to find MTG ReFa at stores in Japan. They only sell this product at few stores such as Lumine Est Shinjuku (ルミネエスト新宿店), Shibuya Marui (渋谷マルイ), Tsutaya Ebisubashi and etc. If you are planning on traveling Japan, you can purchase it at airport duty free shops. You can find it at Haneda, Narita, Kansai International Airports.







7. Kao Laurier F (ロリエ  エフ  しあわせ素肌 )
Kao Laurier F
     As I mentioned in my previous entry, most women prefer to use pads rather than tampons in Japan. That's why many Japanese manufacture companies have tried to improve sanitary pads. Laurier is sanitary product brand of Kao, which is one of the largest Japanese cosmetic companies. (By the way, Kao makes Japanese Curel I mention above.) Their Laurier F series is highly rated sanitary pads on @cosme and won the best sanitary product awards three years in a row.
Kao Laurier F
     I haven't used Laurier F yet, but I know that Japanese sanitary pads are really well made. Because I live in the U.S. now, I used some US sanitary pads for years. As I mentioned in my previous entry, Amazon Japan Haul - Sanitary Pads and Pantyliner, I got a lot of Japanese sanitary pads two months ago. I used Japanese ones for the first time in years, and I noticed that it's really really good! Even when I have a heavy period, I don't feel wet with wearing a Japanese pad because it instantly absorbs blood and stays dry. If you prefer sanitary pads, I recommend you to try Japanese one. Compared to the U.S., any Japanese paper products (pads, toilet papers and etc) are usually inexpensive, so I will definitely buy Japanese sanitary pads again in Japan. ;)



      Kao Laurier F series has 10 kinds of products now. You can find them at most drugstores, supermarkets and discount stores in Japan.

      By the way, Kao also makes really good baby diapers. Kao Merries has been incredibly popular baby diapers in Asian countries.
