If you’ve read our last post you know I’ve been on a little Japanese beauty kick, I love discovering different beauty products and different beauty practices from all over the world. I recently went on a small Japanese beauty haul so shall we chat about all the amazing products I picked up from WAWAZA ?! LETS.
[this is not a review simply a quick “whats what”]
This is a list of everything I purchased from this company including a portion of the company’s product description.
[prices in CAD dollars]
1 x Funori Japanese Seaweed Hair Cleanser and Conditioner – $35.08
Cleanse and condition your hair with triple-seaweed Japanese traditional formulation — an all-natural, nutrient-rich alternative to chemical-based hair care products. Funori promotes smoother, more manageable, and healthier hair. You will notice the difference after one use.
1 x Refill for Aya Japanese Camellia Oil – $46.36
Wild Camellia japonica oil for hair, body, and skincare. Cold-pressed. Unrefined. Excellent emollient and moisturizer. You will fall in love with its creamy texture and deep golden color. Fast absorbing. Non-comedogenic (does not clog pores and contribute to acne.)
1 x Kirei Azuki and Clay Enzyme Facial Exfoliant Economy Pack – $48.87
Gentle, enzymatic exfoliation, the Japanese traditional way. All-natural. No microbeads. Kirei’s chemical-free formulation exfoliates thoroughly while nourishing skin’s cell bonds, promoting healthier new growth.
1 x Japanese Shiro Nuka Rice Bran Skin Revitalizer Economy Pack – $71.42
Time-tested skincare regimen, virtually unchanged since 8th century “Heian” period. Apply the Japanese traditional way, or use it as a brightening face wash. You can also apply it as a rejuvenating facial mask. Made from the nutrient-rich germ and inner bran (aleurone) of Japanese rice — and nothing else. Soft texture. The calming aroma of natural rice. For all skin types, including dry, sensitive skin.
1 x Japanese Ganoderma Mushroom Tea – $30.07
This traditional Japanese tea is a natural source of beta-glucans, which activate the body’s immune response for fighting pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, cancer, parasites, etc. ( Includes medically backed references)
1 x Japanese Herbal Teas for Better Skin – $18.80
Improve your skin’s health and appearance with Japanese herbal traditions. Boost skin’s renewal cycle. Alleviate inflammatory skin conditions. Clear blemishes and diminish dark spots. Rid skin of accumulated toxins
Free Samples [I did not choose these they were a sweet little surprise]
1 x Travel-Size Bijin Rice Bran Facial & Body Oil
1 x Ultra-Fine Akoya Nacre Pearl Powder Sample
1 x Lift & Hydrate Facial Mask With Volcanic Ash Sample
1 x Petite Black Soybean Tea Sample
The shipping for my order was $23 and they did notify me that it could take up to 4 weeks to arrive. Given that the order was coming from Japan this isn’t especially expensive because all duties, customs, and all those little hidden costs were included in the shipment. Additionally, the order took 2 days short of 4 weeks to arrive which didn’t bother me as I had been informed that it would take this long.
Everything was packaged exceptionally well, nothing was damaged or out of place.
One of my favourite parts about the order was that everything had an informative insert with a QR code & written instructions [sometimes containing little diagrams]. Wawaza made everything so easy to understand especially considering their products aren’t quite like the North American products I’m more accustomed to using.
I’ve already used some of these products and honestly, the most challenging part has been not eating the Shiro Nuka face mask because it smells amazing. Also, every item I’ve used I’ve been quite happy with and am very excited to delve deeper into each product with you guys!
Stay tuned for when I break down each product a little further and we really go through each item!
