Eureka Moment: Nippon Esthetic Solutions PRO gone Retail!

Happy Friday AMW friends!

Today, I will be sharing a great news for both Pros and Non-Pros!  If you are into makeup, I strongly recommend to invest on beauty and hygiene disposable products to keep your skin free from makeup residue, dirt and oil!  

Over the years,  I have used Nippon Esthetic Solutions Pro products for personal and professional use. I have voiced out my wish to SNR Enterprises' Managing Director Ms. Sydney Go on them selling their wonderful products in retail so it will be easier for me, as well as my non-makeup artist friends!  The smart friend of mine just told me to "Wait and see"

And the long wait is over!!!!

Nippon Facial Cotton Quilts 
Php50.00 (approx $1.20)
"Seamless quilts used for removing makeup and cleansing the skin.  
It's seamless edges don't leave unwanted cotton lint on face."

Aside from using the Nippon Facial Cotton Quilts for toner application, I prefer using this to remove my eye makeup!  For a piece of cotton quilt, I get to clean both eyes by pouring a bit of gentle makeup remover at the center of the cotton, I close my eyes and gently press the cotton quilt leaving it for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  This method melts down eye makeup, liners and mascara thus lesser rubbing is needed.  (Lesser rubbing = lesser wrinkles!)

I also find using cotton quilt more advantageous than cotton balls in terms of nail polish removal.  I can easily remove nail polish for 5 fingers on each side of the cotton quilt and lesser amount of nail polish remover is needed as cotton balls tend to absorb more.

 Nippon Cosmetic Wedge Sponges
32pcs Php180.00 (approx $4.30)
62pcs Php300.00 (approx $7.14)
"These ergonomic wedge shape sponges are the best companion for makeup application. 
The wedge shape allows coverage in hard to reach areas for even application."

As a professional makeup artist, I can easily save disposable sponges by using the same one on different clients (they wouldn't notice, right?)  

BIG NO!!!!

Hygiene is very important for me personally and professionally, my rule will always be "one cosmetic wedge sponge to 1 client".  If I accidentally drop the sponge, I even had to go for 2nd just to make sure I take care of my clients' skin.  In one makeup gig, I could use up to 10 Cosmetic Wedge Sponge and stocking up on these are very important for me!  Just so you know, I have packs after packs at home!  *winks*  I'm a hoard-er, what can I say? :P

And who would've thought my love for nail art will lead me to picking up these cosmetic wedge sponges?  Check out my recent "Dainty Tri-Color Nail Art" tutorial.  You'll understand why these sponges are nail artists' savior!

 Nippon Moist Sponges 5s
Php25.00 each (approx $0.60)
"These moist sponges is the best type of sponge to use on the face and body.
Its special material allows the skin to breathe.  Ideal to use before each makeover,
facial or body treatment and at-home wash." 

One of the many tricks I learn to have better-looking skin is by using a damp sponge during cleansing!  Dirt, oil, dust and makeup won't be easily remove by your fingers!  After massaging the facial cleanser onto my face, I pick up a damp sponge and gently wipe through the whole face.  Goodbye dirt, oil and makeup together with the facial cleanser!  My face is definitely cleaner using this method!

Oh, and another thing, I also love to use these for my body!

 Nippon Micro Precision Tips 
Php60.00 (approx $1.40)
"Fine and ultra mini, this handy secret tool is perfect for the eye area 
when one wants to erase a bit of smudge at the corners of the eyes."

The availability of the Micro Precision Tips made me extra happy!  The regular Nippon Dual Cotton Tips has served me well in terms of wiping off excess lipstick or some smudges created by mascara or eyeliner using the pointed tip.  Most clients would get amazed on such existence and would always ask where I get these!  

Who would've thought a micro version will be created?  It's even more precise and perfect for the eye area!
