As you can see, these past two weeks have been a little… scattered. I was on cruise that first week in the Bahamas– where it was nice and cool but also rainy and comfortably humid. I was also limited on space and didn’t need an army of skincare, so I was stripping myself down to the bare minimum for a few days there. When I came back, laziness kicked in on a few days, so what you see here are a few days where I did practically nothing and other days where I felt like I needed to make up for it.

In case anyone has been wondering about my wherabouts, I’ve been out of the country for the last week. And of course, when I came back there were freshly delivered boxes on my doorstep. This was one of them.
I’ve been subscribing to Japan Crate for a while now, and they have plenty of variations. I love my Japanese snacks, which is what the original box sends. When I heard that they were coming out with a Japanese beauty box, I had to at least order the first one and give it a shot. Most Asian beauty boxes are strictly K-beauty, so it’s nice to see a Japanese option out there. There’s also the skippable factor to the box. I only add a new product every 1-2 weeks, and I have to get through my stash, so being able to skip rather than contribute to a growing mountain of products is a nice option to have. There’s also a feature on Japan Crate’s site to switch between boxes, so I can get a snack crate one month and a beauty box the next. Prices, however, do vary between boxes.
Kira Kira Crate costs $29 a month and promises a 6-8 full size beauty items directly from Japan with a value of $50 or more. (Normally, with Asian beauty boxes I tend to judge them more on curation than value, but since this has a promised value, I’ll be holding them to task on this claim over the course of this review.)
