Lotion pack, a pack process to moisturize the face using toner (lotion) and cottons is believed to work wonders for the skin and is very popular in Japan. Does this ring a bell as to why Japanese women has beautiful skin?

This video clip guides you through the procedures to a simple lotion pack. English translation is as below:

  5. Thirdly, split the remaining piece at no.3 into 2 pieces (in total, you have 5 pieces).

[Step 2] — Pack your face with cottons

  1. 1st piece- Stretch horizontally laying across the face, from the jaw to under eyes.
    *Leave a breathing space on the nose and mouth.
  2. 2nd piece- Stretch horizontally, lay it across the eyes to forehead, leaving openings for the eyes.
  3. 3rd piece & 4th pieces- Lay vertically from the eyes, overlapping the previous laid cottons.
  4. 5th piece- Stretch the cotton from the jaw to the neck.
  5. After everything is finished, press lightly with the palm to “adhere” the cotton to the face. Leave it on for 3 minutes.

Sunscreen / 日焼け止

Sunscreen or sunblock plays a very important role when it comes to anti-aging measures. Many brands of sunscreen are available in Japan. Today, I will just pickup two that enjoys high rating here.


Nivea Sun / ニベアサン (SPF30)

593yen (~USD7.70) / 80g

The top in ranking is “Nivea Sun” which is a product by KAO. For few years, it has been awarded as one of the Best Sunscreens in Japan. If you happen to be checking this article by chance, it will be good to know that Nivea sunscreen is probably easily obtainable in most part of the world and it is very affordable.

I will translate some common positive reviews about it from the users:

  • I like the fact it’s gel type and the face does not go white after application.
  • What I like most is the texture which doesn’t feel oily or even sticky on the face.
  • Special type of cleanser removal is not needed, which is a plus for me.
  • It feels so light on the skin that you don’t feel the application at all.
  • I don’t encounter skin irritation after using.

The amazing part is that I don’t really see much negative reviews from users out of the 2904 write-ins. I just pick up two for your information.

  • It feels just like water, thus I can’t use it as base for makeup.
  • I put it on during travelling to school. Though I repeated applications, my skin still turns dark (probably SPF30 isn’t enough during summer season?).



  • ジェルタイプで,白くならない
  • テクスチャーはさらさらしている,べたつかない
  • 落とすのも専用のクレンジングがいらないので使いやすいです
  • とても軽い使用感
  • 肌荒れもせずとても使いやすかった


  • ウォーターというだけあって、水のようにするんとした感じです。ですから,化粧下地としては私は駄目でした
  • 通学時に使ってました。何度も塗りなおしましたが、焼けちゃいました。

ALLIE by Kanebo, released 9 months ago is a more expensive version which is slowly gaining in popularity. Of course, the deserved to be mentioned point is that Kanebo is a very famous cosmetic company in Japan. Over the years, they had released many series of sunscreens and the series are constantly improving.


ALLIE / アリィー (SPF50)

2,940yen (~USD38) / 60g

Ok, here you go. These are the positive reviews from users.

  • Spreads and blend easily onto the face.
  • It doesn’t go white on the face and is not sticky consider its a SPF50.
  • In spite of its high SPF, its unexpectedly light on the face.
  • I don’t burn under the sun after application.

And not forgetting the negative review from users. Like the Nivea Sun, ALLIE also doesn’t have much negative reviews from the 1211 write-ins. Again, I picked up two.

  • It seems too drying for my face.
  • Applying mixture of the screen and foundation in a hurry make the face looks very dirty.

My Opinion:
I will reserve my comment for these two products since I have yet to give them a try. Speaking about preference, I will prefer SPF higher than what Nivea offers (30). I am currently using Annesa by Shiseido, which I am quite satisfied with the texture and how well it blends into my skin. I think I will stick to it for a while more and switch to ALLIE if I have chance.



  • 伸びがよく,塗ったらすぐに馴染む
  • テクスチャーはさらさらしている,べたつかない
  • SPF50なのに白くならないし、ベタベタ感なし
  • 高いSPFなのに想像以上に軽い付け心地
  • 半日外にいましたが焼けませんでした


  • 乾燥が気になり
  • 急いで化粧をしたいときに、これを顔全体に塗ってからパウダーファンデーションを使うと日焼け止めとパウダーファンデーションの粉が混ざって、ポロポロした垢みたいなものがでてきます。

私は両商品とも使ったことはないので,具体的なコメントはできませんが,個人な好み としては,どうしてもSPF30以上のものが欲しいです。今は,資生堂の『アネッサ』という商品を使っています。伸びが良く,塗ったらすぐに馴染むところが気に入っています。しばらく,『浮気』はしないと思いますが。。。機会があれば,アリィーを使ってみたいです。
