    I am quite sensitive with regards to facial product but, i found the shiseido -maquillage powder fits me.. it has a lot of variation that may fit your shade and most of all i love their elegant case.. http://www.shiseido.co.jp/mq/feature/20150221/.

    When I started really using face powder, my friend recommended me to Koh Gen Do. Been using it for over a year now. I have to say Japanese face powder feels very refined and stayed through the day! http://www.kohgendo.com/product/

    For everyday easy to apply economical but good quality face powder, with excellent reviews, that is readily available in any drug store I use this one (linked walmart for the english information!): https://www.walmart.com/ip/Maybelline-Mineral-Power-Powder-Foundation/10450578 My main powder is Max Factor but you have to buy that in a Department store, I've yet to find a drug store that carries it.

    Mac can be little expensive but I think they are the best. You may look for sale on Amazon ; sometimes they offer !

    I have found that Daiso offers a shade that fits my skin very well. I was sceptical because of the low price but have not found a better one that has as good staying power.

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
