PAUL&JOE Refreshing Skin Toner 200ml
I’ll be finished with this within a day or two — I use this for daily cotton pad masks so it goes very fast — so it’s time to write something about it. Although to be honest I haven’t used it for very long, probably only one or two months, and I never really have much to say about toners and lotions.
I’m not completely sure why, but I’ve somehow managed to acquire more PAUL&JOE skin care products than makeup ones. (This is partly because of the multitude of tempting makeup brands available, and in no part the fault of PAUL&JOE itself.) While I’ve been disappointed by a few of them, the Refreshing Skin Toner is, in my opinion, a decent, bordering on average, product. Still, I suppose there’s a justifiable reason why the makeup products receive more attention.

The mail service has been much faster recently, and I actually received these early last week. へ(ﾟωﾟ*へ)ﾜｼｮｰｨ(ノ*ﾟωﾟ)ノﾜｼｮｰｨ
PAUL & JOE Collection 2010 (Disney Character) 001 & 002
I have too much lingering resentment from missing out (twice!) on the previous Disney collection, so when the UK price was (relatively) reasonable, it wasn’t hard to convince myself I needed some Alice in Wonderland love. ((*´∀`))ヶﾗヶﾗ I definitely wouldn’t have gotten them otherwise, as ¥6,300 is somewhat ridiculous in my opinion.
But now that I have them in my hands, I’m actually a little… underwhelmed. Maybe it’s because lipbalm and blotting papers just aren’t very exciting, Alice in Wonderland illustrations notwithstanding. （´▽｀*）ｱﾊﾊー

PAUL&JOE Deep Cleansing Milk 200g
I meant to write this earlier, but I got a bit distracted looking online for a new mask since my KOSE Seikisho Whitening Mask is almost finished and I’m nowhere near a KOSE counter at the moment. I like the instant gratification of buying from a physical store, so I’m looking for an alternative to KOSE Seikisho Whitening Mask.
This Deep Cleansing Milk is my first PAUL&JOE skin care item. I usually stay away from skin care products from cosmetic brands better known for their makeup products (under the possibly misguided impression that they won’t be any good (*´∀｀*)ゞ), but I’m happy I tried the Deep Cleansing Milk from PAUL&JOE and I want to try their other cleansing products. （●>∀<●）ィェ━ィ★彡

PAUL & JOE Protective Fluid Foundation 30ml
I’m not sure which version of the Protective Fluid Foundation this is (PAUL&JOE seems to update their base makeup very regularly nowadays… (。-｀ω´-)ぅぃ), but it’s probably quite an old version! (ｏ￣∀￣)ノ”ぁぃ
The Protective Fluid Foundation is a sheer coverage foundation with the natural, glowy finish PAUL&JOE is famous for. I’ve been using this lately, but it isn’t really what I’m looking for in a foundation… (ﾉω･､) ｳｩ･･･

PAUL&JOE eye colour palette CS
2 variations, LE
release date: 1 january 2009
to be honest, i’m not very interested in these palettes as i don’t find the colour combinations very interesting. = = (the pink lipstick, however, is absolutely gorgeous! ♥) but i was at the department store looking at spring collections from other brands so i had a look at P&J too. XD plus the SA was nice and patient. ♥ and i like their GWP bags (although i don’t own any)

PAUL&JOE eye colour primer 4.8ml
as someone with VERY oily eyelids (囧), eyeshadow primer is an absolute necessity to prevent eyeshadow creasing, smudging and fading through the day. はぁー･･･(*´Д｀)=з so when PAUL&JOE released an eyeshadow primer a while ago, i made a mad dash to the counter. （☆゜д゜）ニヤリｗ their packaging is too cute and girly to pass up. （o´ω｀o）ぅふふ (but my interest in P&J sort of died after that so this is the only P&J item i own… 囧囧囧)
