These are the last two AESOP products I have, so if you’re sick of seeing AESOP here this is (probably) the last time. I’m interested in a few other products from their line, namely the B Triple C Gel (which is expensive!) and the Parsley Seed Eye Serum or Cream, but my “stock” seems to accumulate faster than I can use them so I’m going to try to finish a number of other things first. 彡(´∀｀;●)彡 ﾋｭｰﾋｭｰ
As for these two products, I think they’re decent products, but not particularly exciting or outstanding. I don’t like the Parsley Seed Toner much and I wouldn’t repurchase either because I think there would be many other (cheaper) products that perform basic cleansing and toning functions.

HADALABO Tamagohada Mild Peeling 130g 840円 (税込)
HADALABO is an affordable skin care brand by ROHTO that is gentle on the skin and generally free of fragrance, colouring, mineral oil and alcohol. Tamagohada (or “egg skin” LOL! ∵ゞ(´ε｀●) ﾌﾞﾊｯ!!) is the name of their cleansing line (all four products of it), all of which contain AHAs and BHAs to mildly exfoliate the skin.
I normally avoid anything labelled AHA because while my skin can tolerate BHAs, the AHA products I’ve used in the past have all stung my face. (ﾉω･､) ｳｩ･･･ So this is definitely not something I would actually buy! But this little tube came with the GokuJyun lotions I bought so I tried it… (つω｀*)ﾃﾍ

IPSA cleansing milky foam 125ml 2,625円 (税込)
according to the IPSA website, this foaming cleanser is supposed to remove surface impurities without stripping and drying the skin and is hence suitable for people with dry skin. i’m not too sure about this though. it dried my skin out quite badly (＊´д｀)?? (and i don’t have dry skin to being with! 囧)
i received a generous (because each time you only need very little) 50ml GWP size that i’ve been trying to finish with so little success that it’s now been relegated to washing sponges and puffs as well. 囧

COW BRAND 無添加 泡の洗顔料 150ml 651円 (税込)
“no additives” foaming face wash
the 2nd product from my drugstore haul. （o´ω｀o）ぅふふ ignoring the truly 囧-worthy brand name, the “no additives” face care series contains no colouring, fragrance, preservatives (including parabens) and stabilisers, which makes it ideal for sensitive skin. the original “no additives” product was a facial bar soap, but its popularity resulted in the subsequent expansion of the line, which now includes a rich cleanser, this cleanser, a cleansing oil and a cleansing milk, with the latter two being makeup removers.
this cleanser claims to quickly and gently clean your face, leaving it feeling moist.
