Staying in Japan's hotel almost always means toiletries is provided, so you really don't have to bring soaps, shampoo, etc. Sleeping robe is provided as well and as the Japanese hardly do thing half and half, the whole heartedly items provided from 3-4 stars hotel is sure to be a quality one.
Staying in Shinagawa Prince Hotel I'm able to try on POLA's stuff. This is not my first time using POLA, but my first time writing about it. The product is still in the affordable range, but I can't say I see them outside of Japan as many as I see other brands expanding. But based on my experience the product is definitely not bad.
The shampoo can cleans my hair and scalp well, without striping the moisture off. Somehow it gives the hair a full body feeling without weighting them down. The conditioner is light but still way better than common brand's conditioner, the hair does become smooth and tangle free.
The body soap is gentle, it does the cleansing with no drying. The hand soap also nice, with pumping device and formula that is perfect for winter.
For the scent-wise, it's mild (all of them) and can't really say a thing about it, winter does blocked my nose a bit heehee. All I can say is they smell good, a bit honey, flowery and a hint of a delicate summer breeze.
