I did my last minute shopping back at Aeon since I got home late and the fact that it had everything I needed to get there. It was a sigh of relief since I really did not have anymore time and was leaving to the airport at 5:00am. What a nightmare that was!

I was out with my siblings and they wanted to go weab-out at Nakano where Mandarake and all things 80s were. For a severely under-touristed city, there sure are a lot of tourists at Nakano and as much as I usually loathe touristy areas, anyone in Tokyo should make a trip there at least once.

The morning I landed in Tokyo(10 days ago), I headed straight to Aeon department store which was literally a stone throw away from my hotel. I had stayed in the area before when I was attending a fashion trade show at Tokyo Big Sight, so I knew that place well.

Its rather hard to find an actual Aeon department store in Tokyo, especially when you’re a tourist you’ll be probably be in one of the more touristy areas. Aeon is great since its a more affordable store and its beauty hall has pretty much everything you need. Not absolutely everything like Matsumoto Kiyoshi or SunDrug in terms of its beauty products, but its pretty much a one-stop station while you’re buying extra undies and what-not. Things are far more organised and presentable with the ample store space as opposed to the drugstore chains which basically pile and pile stuff over each other to maximise the profit per square foot.

I’ve been travelling to Tokyo yearly for the past 4 years, so the great urge to buy everything has waned(but not quite). The great thing is that now I’m severely editing my purchases and I only purchase products that I will only find in Japan. It absolutely sucks for me to buy something then discover it was available locally(minus online shopping).

This is my first selection from Aeon Beauty Hall:

Honestly, its not even a legit ‘haul,’ but I have no idea how else to term a ‘beauty purchase.’
