Which do you like?
Hard water or soft water?

Yesterday I found Contrex was sold with a scrunchy (a free gift) of PJ(PEACH JOHN: Japanese lingerie shop like Victoria's Secret in the US)! I was at the store thinking of getting a bottle, but after minutes of consideration, I ended up not getting it because I don't prefer the taste of hard water.

Hard water is said to have a high mineral content, mainly calcium and magnesium. I always drink soft water which is low in mineral content, so Contrex is pretty heavy for me. evian is okay I think. By the way, Contrex costs about 2 bucks in Japan. Pretty expensive for water, right?!

Anyway, I just talked with my co-worker (a guy) and he said he loves to drink hard water and he bought dozens of Contrex recently! Just in case, I asked him about this free scrunchy and he said he bought a few of them with it!!! There are 6 different kinds, so I hope he've got each of them! I asked him to bring them all tomorrow ;) Sometimes good thing happens!

Yesterday, I was so tired that I didn't go to the GYM. Instead, I used Aesop's Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, which I bought in NY, after a long bath. I think anti-oxidant ingredients worked on me! My dull skin brightened a little bit ;) Oops... I was going to open it after I finished my L'OCCITANE's Very Precious Regenerating Concentrate, but I couldn't wait!!! In addition, I have unopened Very Precious Brightening Concentrate. How greedy! How many faces do I have! He-he-he!!!

Let's try to remain young ;)

My co-worker remembered to bring the scrunchies. I've got 4 different kinds! He-he-he! Sooooo cute ;D

  1. Ochi,

    I never knew that water can divided into soft and only I knew.This is a great knowledges.

    Wow,can your face take it?I mean you use different cream at one time.Better use one by one..

    Have a great day,Ochi.

  2. This was fast, jose!!!

    Contrex counteracts the constipation! People drink this when on a diet ;)

    Nope. I use them one by one on a different day. So I tried not to open Aesop while using L'OCCITANE, but I just couldn't wait to use it yesterday. Ha-ha.

    But you know what!? I use toner, serum, and cream from different brands (KOSE, L'OCCITANE, and HR). I ended up like this because they each are comfortable for me to use. I know it is better to stay with the same brand, though.

    You, too! Have a great day!!!

  3. Hello ochisan!

    I tried this bottled water sometime in japan.
    but i don't think is good for me,but my husband told me,this makes you slim.hahaha!

    and before i forgot,yes...i went to game parlor yesterday,and i love the coin game,because they have some free 200 tickets if you dropped the the flag.but we got interested in the elephant,which we want to dropped it first.joke only!
    very hard to win this game.

  4. Hihi Ochi,

    I have been without internet connection so haven't had a chance to check your blog for the past few weeks!

    I drank Contrex in the past, actually was the fav mineral water of a friend, but I absolutely hated the taste. Like Volvic more.

    Cool that you will get the different scrunchies from your friend.


  5. Hi merce-san,

    Really!? Can you drink VITTEL!? Tastes the same as Contrex, right?!

    I know!!! I always lose...
    So, did you finally got the flag or the elephant?!

    Anyway, seems like you had a great time! That is more than anything ;)

  6. Hi Jenn,

    Wow! You lived without the Internet!?
    I think I never can do that since I use it at least once a day!

    I know! Those things good for your health don't usually taste good... Have you ever tried collagen products?! I still can't accept that taste!

    Yes! My friend remembered to bring scrunchies today!!!
    He had 4 different kinds ;)

  7. Hi Ochi,

    I didn't know there were different water types in hard and soft! I'm not sure what mine is ~ Pure American spring water!

    Cool you get scrunchies with your water. I love scrunchies too!

  8. Hi jo,

    I think your's is the soft one!

    I took a pic wearing scrunchy on Saturday ;) I will show you later!
