I had to look up an old post from another forum but found it!  Here you go:

I ordered two tubes from but on 2/26/17.  It was about $32 if I recall back then.  Took about 10 days to Hershey PA and no signature required either.

When we first started ordering this on Rakuten Global Market direct from Japan over a year ago you had to sign for it and the Web Site was in Japanese!  TG for Google Chrome Translation!

My order from Amazon only took 10 days in February.  If this is the "NEW NORM" I'll go back to ordering off Rakuten Global Market?  I made this Spreadsheet last year to compare PayPal vs. VISA.  Check out the delivery times.  You need to sign for it though, but you do get a Tracking #.   Ships Japan EMS Airmail.  

Shopping Demo I made:  https://youtu.be/sAirNZbyy5w 

You pay for shipping, so it helps to order in quantity.
 


Could be a supply vs. demand thing now that they're selling it on eBay and Amazon?

Got a vendor response that it could be as long as the end of the month. Saying that is why they can offer free shipping.

Let's hope it's not on the Slow Boat from... well, Japan!
These are the shipping methods Rakuten Global Market uses:
Red plane FAST.  Blue Boat SLOW.

They make 10 gram CCEZ & 12 gram CC Tubes.  Honestly, it's such a small amount it's not worth it IMHO.

I have taken several shots at finding it on Rakuten Global and haven't had any luck.

Since you mentioned earlier that you had a reaction to the Dentist's Liner, have you thought about trying just a very small amount at first?  Perhaps like a small pea size dab on your upper or lower.  This stuff is totally different, but still might be wise?

No reaction. I think it is going to work well. Ordered two tubes of regular CC to get it on the way.

(P.S. Just watched the "Satisfaction" video on youtube. HAHAHA)

Yeah "Rosie" the forum moderator and I had a little feud going last year.
Comfort Lining a/k/a Jennifer Watson's SCAM PRODUCT is another story.
Glad you have a sense of humor.  
Neither aforementioned individuals did.  :-)

I moderate a two million plus post forum on the web. I understand the occasional member encounter. ;-) A few of our members would have used "Get Off Of My Cloud" or "Oh No, Not You Again" for me. :-) 

Glad you are here and helped me find something that works for me.

Looks like you got the "Orange Plane" or SAL?  Blue Boat must be REALLY SLOW!
FYI...

That's weird because so did mine in February.  I know of at least one other member in another Denture Group that got hers in 10 days.  EMS must be "Express", SAL must be when they have room on the plane or "Standard" and the "Blue Boat" must be Economy?  Pure guesses on that.  

I do know shipping on Rakuten was more around $18 for four tubes last year.  That amount of 36g lasted me over a year and I was doing A LOT of testing/wasting!

I did take the tin snips to the tubes to get every last bit out btw.  I think I got another 3 or 4 grams out of the tube that way?

Yeah the Japan Post site says that SAL is the lowest priority. Since it all travels by air it seems like a lot of extra work to figure out what to leave on the pile for later. I ordered some Liodent to give it a shot also.

Liodent is good.  A bit softer so it doesn't hold up quite as well for me anyway.
Toothless Hillbilly likes it best of the four Japanese Products.
Last I heard from him he had it in for 3 weeks straight.
He responded to a question last year on how to use the tube key.

He was promptly kicked off by Rosie.  :-(  
Thanks for the memory!  ROFL

HAHAHA. I got booted off of a site for the first time in my life two nights ago. A site I started in 2001 and handed off to somebody else in 2014.
