Skincare | Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Hand Cream Travel Edition Set

2016081612430220160816124309

Found this being sold at Sydney International Airport!

So I know the Elizabeth Arden green tea range come in different fragrances like lavender, honey suckle and cherry blossom… but I didn’t know they came in hand creams!

At first I thought I was buying a set of travel-sized body lotions… maybe I took the wrong box when purchasing – I don’t know. But when I finally got to my hotel and gave it another look, I saw it was hand creams! Slightly disappointed but then again, I found this a lot more practical as I always have dry hands!

I’ve only tried the green tea hand cream and it’s sent is remarkable and smell just like the EDTs. Unlike the body lotion, the colour of the cream is white and not green. I’m guessing that the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Body Lotion has green colouring added to it.

But they don’t really last long on my super dry hands and I’m really lazy with regular applications… mostly because I tend to leave the hand cream at home just in case I lose it while out and about. After all, these are only available at the airport and were duty free so I didn’t want it to run out too soon! And I only ever go overseas once in a blue moon.

I may or may not post a review on the others. This post is basically to announce to green tea hand cream appreciators that Elizabeth Arden green tea hand creams exist! And in different scents too!

Snacks | Yuki & Love Japanese Style Green Tea Mochi

I’m a big fan of mochi and came across green tea mochi. Of course I had to try it!

I’ve had packaged green tea mochi before… but this particular brand of mochi wasn’t that soft, gooey mochi texture. It was a bit like biting into a stone…

Snacks | Matchadventure @Daiso

おひさしぶりです!

It’s been a while!

So a new shopping centre popped up in my local area last year and I was ecstatic that a Daiso store was going to open up there!

At last, I finally got to to visit the store and boy did I find lots of green tea goodies! I selected a couple of interesting matcha snacks…

1. Furuta Everyone Cookies

20161015_15412620161015190557The cookies come individually packaged. You get a whiff of green tea once you take the cookie out of its packet and there’s a subtle matcha taste. 2016101519064320161015190456Other than that, it tastes like a chocolate chip cookie.
Score: 7/10

2. DARS Uji Matcha Chocolate

201610151923072016101519220820161015192246

Haven’t been to a Daiso store in a while and am a little heartbroken that they no longer go by the “EVERYTHING $2.80”. This chocolate was $3.80… yikes.

20161015_154118It’s a dark chocolate… very rich chocolate (no pun intended) with a matcha centre.20161015192406

I’m a big fan of the dark chocolate taste and I was also pleased that the chocolate came as individual pieces like they do with some Lindt chocolates.

Score: 8/10

3. Meiji Hello Panda – Matcha Green Tea Cream Filling

Growing up, Hello Panda was the go to snack and I fondly remember my school canteen selling the chocolate and strawberry cream filling flavours. 20161015193040It was the closest thing to junk food the canteen sold once they removed ice cream and chips from the shelves. So, bonus points for nostalgia.The green tea cream filling tastes a lot like the green tea kit kat.2016101519325020161015193241The matcha taste is distinct which I love.
Score: 8.5/10

4. Meito Condensed Milk & Green Tea Candy

2016101519335120161015193306I’m not a big fan of hard candy but I was curious what this would taste like. It has a very matcha taste and there’s literally condensed milk inside. I like to chew on my candy and I found the shell to be quite thin, so less sucking time. I thought it was an ok candy.
Score: 7/10

Well, that’s it for my Daiso… haul (?). Until next time!

じゃあまた!
