Daiso (Japanese Store) Haul!

I havent really bought any makeup or beauty products since I came back from London. Everything is pretty much the same old and new products (like the Revlon Lip Butters that I really want to try!) take a long time to arrive here in Saudi. So I haven't been inspired to buy much.
I recently came across Daiso in one of the malls here. Daiso is a Japanese discount store with branches all over the world . I first saw Judy from itsjudytime on YouTube talk about it and show how different their products were.
Now I don't usually buy products like face washes or face creams from discount stores (specially ones in a language that I cannot read!), but here is some of the stuff I got.
The pictures are self explanatory but I have captioned them anyway.

Volume eyelashes with a cross pattern
Eye makeup remover: liquid filled swabs, AMAZING idea and work really well! 

Glossy lipstick pot. Includes mirror and lip brush. Great for carrying around.
Nail Art pen with an applicator stick.
Eyebrow fibre gel to add definition to thin eyebrows. I guess I might try mixing this with mascara too!
Cleaning face cream with coal for oily skin (Tried this like a hot cloth cleanser, worked GREAT!)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed shopping for it! Just thought this was something different to share apart from the regular beauty products. Do let me know if you would like to see any of these products in more detail.

For the information of my Saudi readers, the Daiso that I went to is at the HyperPanda with the giant trolley :)

  1. Oooh! I love posts about international skincare and makeup =) I like the eyelashes (different style than the usual ones that are available) and the eyebrow fibre gel looks interesting!


    1. i love them too! so interesting to see what else is around.
      i'll do a dedicated post on the eyebrow gel.

  2. That cleansing cream at the end is that made with volcanic ash or something because I'm salivating! lol

    1. haha its all in japanese so im not quite sure. There are a couple of words in english though, like 'CHARCOAL' assuming its just charcoal not volcanic ash. Is volcanic ash good??
