Japanese Hidden Gems 💎

In my most recent trip to Japan, I picked up these hidden gems from Japanese drug stores. These drug stores sell the holy grail beauty products and everyday items.

The Gems 💎

First up at the period pain relief heat pads. Btw, im sure that you can buy these online too. Anywho, these pads stick to your clothing and the heat lasts 5-8 hours. I have tested these and they last approx 6 hours and they do provide pain relief. These cost around £5, which is totally worth it for a pack of 5.

I know what you’re thinking… giant period pad! Don’t be put off because these bad boys do work & they are super slim. These are best to be used for when you’re on the go, and cannot use a hot water bottle.

Next up are the cooling muscle patches. I purchased these again from the drug stores. I am a shoppoholic when in Japan, and so my legs hurt from the walking/shopping etc. Once applied to the area i.e leg muscles, they cool down the muscle. These cost under £10. Tried and tested ✅

Last, but at no means least are Japanese vitamins.The time difference between Japan and the UK is 8 hours, and you know what that means… dreaded jet lag. My god I suffer bad from it.

Japanese Vitamins

The Japanese take these types of pills to stop hangovers. They are supposed to eliminate all signs of a hangover (e.g sickness, tiredness etc) if taken ahead of a drinking sesh. Anywho, I took these and they provided great relief for my jet lag. Ok, it wasn’t just jet lag, was for hangovers too. It’s likely that these are a placebo, but I don’t care. As long as it eases the jet lag, it’s all that matters to me. These cost around £15 for the bottle of 48 from the drug stores.
