All Natural Products

I am currently in search of a natural deodorant and natural soap that won't break my skin out or burn me! Any suggestions on products and stores?

    A few of my friends swear by the stuff at Lush. I've tried some of their soaps and they smell delish and are natural, but I've never tried their deodorants. They seem to have quite a few, in a powder or bar variety (https://jn.lush.com/products/deodorants). A lot of the time they give out samples so you can see how it performs before committing to a full size product!

    For soap and shampoo I use Dr Bronners Pure Castille Organic soap (the liquid one). It was recommended to me by some sempai! I had never heard of it before that, because I am not American, but apparently it is very big in the US. You can get it many places here, but Costco is the cheapest. Welcia is probably the next cheapest.

    I agree about Dr. Bronner's soaps. As far as deodorants, I haven't seen it in Japan, but I like the Crystal Stone type and it lasts for a long time. Supposedly it exists here, even mentioned in this article about finding deodorant in Japan: http://www.survivingnjapan.com/2011/06/japanese-deodorant-whats-in-it-whats.html There are lots of types without antiperspirant in Japan, if that's what you're hoping for. I loved one that I found years ago at Loft, but don't remember the brand. (Loft also sells Dr. Bronner's & tons of natural & imported bath stuff. They're a good place to hit up for their testers, in addition to Tokyu Hands.) There are tons of natural products made in Japan, so I'd recommend asking Japanese friends what they like as well.

    @genkidesu Yes!!! Thank you so much!! I love LUSH and I didn't know about their deodorants until you mentioned it! I got a chance to go back to the one in Shibuya this weekend and I picked up the powder! I found out that the bar is only online! They didn't have a sample size so I go the smallest one for like ¥1250, not too bad! And so far....I love it!! Smells a little weird, but usually things that smell weird/bad work well lol I did get sample sizes of some facial cleansers. Thank you so so much for your recommendation!

    @DLHayes so glad you found some stuff that you liked! I find some of their smells are herbal and they take a bit of getting used to but then I really like a lot of the more unique scents!

Bathtub cleaning

Any advice for cleaning a japanese bathtube? Somehow my bathtub has many weired stains and discoloration after I didn´t used it for long time. Normal bathroom cleaning spray doesn´t work really.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D
