Amazing DIY Facemask Moisturizing, Anti Acne, and Brightening | LoveBezuki

So after some trial and errors, I came to this simple facemask that you can pull together from your kitchen cupboard. This is amazing for brightening, moisturizing, and also anti acne.

It really really works! If you ever make this yourself, please let me know how it went! Would love to hear your thoughts.

4 Simple ingredients:

*Oatmeal – finely milled powder ones are great. You can just buy normal oats and food blender it, or use oat flour. That small grains are great for massaging the skin, it’s not harsh at all.
*Honey – normal honey is great, but if you are suffering from acne and want to have stronger anti acne effect, then I recommend manuka honey. They are special type of honey from New Zealand, have stronger anti bacterial effect
*Yogurt – normal plain yogurt or greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is thicker, so it is easier to deal with.
*Green tea – Either green tea powder (maccha) or if you cannot access to maccha then normal tea bags are great. If you are using tea bags, you need to put it in the end, infuse it at least over night, if not two nights. If you are wanting to have stronger brightening effect, then use two/three tea bags.

Mix everything together, and you can keep this up to a week.
It is easy to make, simple and very inexpensive. Hope you enjoyed!

My 2014 Favorites | LoveBezuki

It will be a looong blog post, so if you are planning to read through, you might need a cup of tea.

Video version of this blog:

Nars Lip Pencil in “YU”: Love this, my favorite pink. Bright blue toned almost fluorescent pink. Easy to wear, last for a long time, no irritation on my lip. I already used up 20% of it, so I am gonna have to buy a new one sometime very soon.

Nars Guy Bourdin Palette: I’ve used so much during 2014, it was a Christmas limited collection in 2013. My cheek lived in this thing for whole 2014. So obviously I bought the limited cheek pallete in 2014 Christmas! Nars just did it for me… it maybe a new obsession.

Mote Mascara Long & Heroine Make Eye Liner: Both from Japanese drugstore product. The mascara was the new release in 2014, and very accessible brand. You can even get them from supermarkets. Eye liners are around since long time ago. Mascara is very fiber-y so it lengthen like crazy. I love Japanese drugstore mascaras, they work amazingly well. Eye liner – this one is definitely by far the best eyeliners I ever use.. pointy, long wearing, opaque.. nothing more I ask for!

Lanvin Jeanne: My signature scent. I have been wearing this for the past few years. I am very sensitive to the smell in general, and I particularly like the fact that his perfume does not disturb when I am eating. It is very fresh raspberry scents, with very light floral, and it fades into really fresh subtle scents. I think I am gonna have this in the future too!

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler: I have this thing for a long time and I think this is the best. In my past I owned about 5, and this is by far the best. No pain, and it does a good job without damaging my eyelash.

MAC Eyeshadows in Rice Paper, Print, Blanc Type, Omega: Eyeshadows were very difficult to choose as I had lots of favorites. In the end, I came back to my basic and decided to show you what I use almost every day in 2014. Blanc Type is matte, lighter than my skin tone and great for contouring. I use this for top of my nose, also brow bone area. Print, I use for my brows. It is a great eye brow color for me especially if you have dark hair color. Rice Paper looks slightly yellowy when it is in the pan, but on skin it is completely different. Very frosty highly light reflective colour, I usually use this in my inner corner of my eyes or very lightly on my cheek bones. Omega is a crease colour for me. Just slightly darker than my skin so its great when you don’t want a big definition.

Real Technique Brushes: Out of all my makeup brushes, these three are the most that I’ve reached out for. They are all synthetic, washes very well and dries fast. In my opinion, they are better quality than some of the really high end real hair brushes. I am going to buy some more when I go to UK soon!

RMK Gel Creamy Foundation in 102 and 103: My staples. I mix these two colours to create my perfect match. This foundation is sheer coverage, moisturizing, very skin like finish, and comes in plastic container. It definitely my travel buddy. I always have to have this in my makeup kit.

Shiseido Nail Polish Remover: This is very accessible in Japan, sold in supermarkets, drugstore, and so on. This leaves my skin and nail moisturized, no funny smells, and it takes off the polish real quick! I’ve tried lots from Boots in the UK, but this was something that I still bought in Japan, brought back to UK when I used to live there. It is worth a try.

Astalift Moisture Foam: As name suggest, this is very moisturizing face wash that does a great job of removing dirt from your face, but still leaves moisture on your skin. I was into “natural” skincare in 2014, this is NOT a natural products, but … had to keep this in my collection as this is so good!

SK2 Stem Power Moisturizer: Again, this is not natural. But this instant result of your skin feeling great. It gets addictive. Best random purchase I’ve ever done at the airport! Now I need this eye cream to go with..

Melvita Extraordinary Flower Water: I am a big fan of this for a long time. Once you get over the “sticky” feeling you get on your skin, you feel the benefit. It contains high concentration of hyaluronic acid, and keeps your skin instantly hydrated. I have the rose one just now, but I also love all the other types of this range, I toss around depending on the season.

Nuxe Lip Balm: everyone’s favorite, and it is also my favorite. Smells gorgeous, last for a long time, and for amount it lasts, it is a great cost performance. I cheekily use this on my hand too time to time when I am outside. I buy this at feelunique when they do “30% off” sales.

Organic Deodrant: I wanted to use something natural under my arm more than half of the things you apply to your skin gets absorbed. I found this at Cosme Kitchen in Japan, and I really liked how it felt. But you have to remember that those natural products is not heavy duty – after the gym, I need non natural ones as I need chemical one …

Coconut oil: It is increasingly becoming popular in Japan. For most of 2014, I had 1 pot for eating, and 1 pot for skincare. It is a miracle product.. you apply as a moisturizer, hand cream, hair treatment, makeup remover… you name it it works. My husband loves this on his bread every morning. I put mine in my porridge.

Manuka Honey: One thing I never skipped in 2014 was having Manuka Honey on a daily basis. I started this 3 years ago, and continuing since. In the beginning I tried so many different company’s Manuka, and I settled on Comvita as theirs tastes the best out of all the certified Manuka honey brand. I love it! They are expensive, but it suppose to vitalize you, I guess it is like a supplement. I will continue in 2015!

Tomizawa Dried Fruits: This shop, I know from my childhood as my mother always have been shopping from this place. I love their dried Fig, Mango, Dates, Raisins, and Apricots.

Tomizawa Nuts and Cacao Nibs: Continuing from my previous photo, nuts and cacao nibs from the same shop. The quality of food in this place is great!

Lindt Chocolates: my favorite chocolate company. I like their dark chocolates especially and every day half a box is consumed by me. My current obsession is dark chocolate caramel with touch of sea salt, they are so gorgeous! I am definitely stocking these up in UK, as they are so expensive in Japan, almost triple of the price.

Green Tea Megami: My favorite of favorite. This is definitely something. It has a deep flavor, yet “sweet”. It is definitely worth a try.

Organic Green Tea: They are called Ibuki and Asahi. New finding for me in 2014. I was on a hunt for a organic green tea, these are the ones that stood out the most. They taste the same as normal green tea and the price range is also very similar. Most of the organic tea does not taste so good, so I am very happy with these two findings!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading this post for a long time, and … I will speak to you soon!
Lots of love,

Sunny winter day walk | LoveBezuki

In Japan most of the winter days are sunny. That is one thing very different from UK. So, though it is as cold as UK, you feel like getting out more and feels like a real waste if you are just sitting inside your office or home.
With random train ride and quick google search, we reached to a funky cafe.


Since it was my walking day I put my pink trainers on. I can only take these babies out when it’s sunny as this made of suede. High top pony tail is definitely my go to hair style for lazy day like today.

今日はタダ長い散歩をする予定だったのでピンクのスニーカーにしてみました。スエードで出来ているので外に出れるのは晴れの日だけ。髪型はLazy Dayの定番のハイトップポニーテール。

Atmosphere was very chilled out. Old yet modern American style with comfy and friendly environment. Food was not too American, I had a steak salad followed by carrot cake. Carrot cake! It is my first time since I moved to Japan I see it on a menu. It was something I used to have regularly in UK, so suddenly I had a mental attachment to this place. I should probably invest in a town bike, so I can get to random place more randomly!

Time to let it go | LoveBezuki

Sometimes in life there are few things that is easy to carry on, not noticing it might not be good for you. Or, simply things you love might be little too old to hold on to, and ready to have something fresh.

So today, I would like to share with you some of the things I decided to release it from me.

1 My job

It was a difficult decision as I loved this company for many years. In fact quitting was as difficult as getting a job, even more. There were few things happening to the company I used to work for, there were lots of changes, I was tossed around different division, and I landed on a sector where I didn’t imagine I would be there one day. Don’t get me wrong, most of the people I worked with was good, I really ran out of my energy for doing something I don’t have my heart for. I was there for a while, but it took me 3 months to come to this conclusion – I start fresh in 2015. So, I did.

2 My favorite shoes

From very serious topic to not-so-life-changing-topic. For me, I actually deeply in love with this shoes that it is almost as serious as letting my job go. It’s from the company called ECCO, there are few shops around in Japan now.
Their shoes are extremely comfortable. You might think that it is not a fashonista place to shop, but seriously, you will find a gem there time to time. It is definitely THE shoe company that provides comfort. Love, but too old and time to say goodbye. Desperately need a replacement as good as this.

3 Chanel nail polishes

God knows how long I hold on to these two! They were both “must-go-to” nail polishes from … University time? I remember I always wanted Miami Peach on my nails when I was board of dissertation. Well, that tells the time how long I hold onto this, as a result they are now too old. 203 Miami Peach was my perfect coral for me. I painted my nails one last time, it still brings back the memory of slacking my Uni work with my housemates, painting my nails and sipping our tea for hours.

These things are the things that is difficult for me to let them go, but now I can bring in new great things in those space.

Hope you are all having a great day.

what I got for Christmas …2014 | LoveBezuki

This year went with a speed of sound. I guess that means a lot of things has happened, and in fact, it did. Both goods and bad. I just cannot imagine one year has passed since we moved to Japan! I hope you had an amazing year wherever you are and whatever you do.

I thought I would share what I got for Christmas. But I only share the highlights – I received a lot of food related things, but I will pass on that – it will just be tea, coffee, cookies, chocolates …. which I all love, but it you know what I mean.

So, without further do..

I was super excited when I found this in my stocking. I don’t need to say anything anymore…. right? If you are a Tiffany lover, you feel my excitement! I won’t eat these, I will hang on till it’s moldy!

My husband always gives me Godiva chocolate – I am not complaining by the way, I feel spoiled on my birthdays and Christmas. The box is actually spectacular, this one especially… Now I am finding a new home for this one.

I was super excited when I saw this – lost for words. I was not expecting anything for Christmas as we had an extremely busy year in 2014, and no time to really think about Christmas and never mind about the presents. Now I completed a set of earrings and necklace. I get easily used to this luxury, I am already thinking what would Santa bring in 2015 Christmas lol.

Hope you had an amazing holiday season, and very belated “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!” from me. Hope this year will bring you a lot of joy and fun in your life, and you achieve whatever you wanted to do.

Lots of love,
