Cleansers -Koh Gen Do -Cleansing Spa Water Cloth

on 3/12/2018 12:26:00 AM


These are seriously the best makeup wipes I have ever used, but I just can't justify the price! They cost $15 for a pack of 10 or 30 clothes for $43. I would only consider buying these again if they were somehow on sale or if I had a code. I don't wear makeup everyday, so I don't really go through these quickly. These are the wipes I travel with because they are ultra saturated and take everything off. The only thing I don't see it taking off is maybe waterproof mascara. Whatever they soak this in is a very impressive liquid because not only does it smell heavenly...it doesn't irritate the skin one bit. The packaging seems pretty standard for wipes, but they remain very moist and completely soaked in the spa water. I don't really know how they don't dry out like other wipes might, but it's pretty impressive. I would totally consider buying more if I got a deal on them. In the meantime, I am a big fan of the Pond's wipes.

Liquid -Koh Gen Do -Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

on 1/28/2018 6:42:00 AM


I`ve been using the Aqua version of this for years, but this is the first time I`ve tried this Moisture version of it. I`ve hesitated to buy this because the amount of product seemed relatively small in relation to the price. Also, I didn`t think I had a skin type that warranted a foundation targeting dry skin. However, at this time of year I usually get away for two months and spend the coldest months of the year somewhere tropical, so I`ve never really experienced a full on winter until now. My skin has been dry and reactive (irritated and breaking out), so in a bout of desperation I decided to reach out for my trusty Koh Gen Do. The Aqua version never clogs my pores and helps my skin heal, but is too dry for winter, so I decided to check out the moisture version. First off, I love how easy it is to apply, just with fingers. It blends easily and color corrects really well. Surprisingly I use a small amount, just on the center of my face and it looks really natural. Coverage is pretty light, but I cover up under the eyes with Sisley`s Phyto Concealer and any blemishes get taken care of with Catrice Camouflage. So I use a really small amount of product to achieve the look I want. It doesn`t sit in lines and doesn`t emphasize texture or pores. It wears well, except for my nose, but then nothing lasts on my nose when it`s constantly runny and is wiped. Touch ups are easy: just toss the tube in my bag and use fingers to blend. Not that touch ups are much needed: for a moisturizing base, it really lasts. I would totally repurchase.

Liquid -Koh Gen Do -Aqua Foundation

on 1/13/2018 1:50:00 PM


I have dry, sensitive skin, and this is one of my favorite foundations... in a more cool climate (Scandinavia). I have also tried it in California, and it doesn't really work very well - slides around on me and doesn't last as long as in a cooler climate. I apply this with my hands, as it kinda self-levels and thus applies evenly this way. A beauty blender would suck up the thin-ish product, and I just don't like brushes, and I'm not sure the gel texture of this would apply well with a brush. One bottle lasts me about 7 months when I use one pump of this per application

There are several things I really like in this foundation: the shade 213 suits my NC20 (Pro Longwear as reference), neutral yellow/olive skin very well - better than most other foundations. It is totally perfume free, alcohol free and doesn't upset my sensitive skin at all, nor did it clog my pores (16 h/day wear test for over 12 months). It is very good at hiding dry spots and flaking areas. Heavy concealer that can otherwise make drier spots look drier goes very well over this foundation. The reason is the gel-cream type of consistency - it almost creates a semi transparent layer that evens out all kinds of surface issues. It makes my skin look like skin because of its coverage and texture, and powders apply well on top. On top of all of this, in the climate I usually live in, this lasts all day long on me, and doesn't break up on me or look strange as it slightly disappears during the day. I like this foundation so much that it was what I wore on my wedding day (cool and very rainy), and aside from me not applying enough blush, my skin looks very good in the photos. This is till now the only foundation that I've soon used up two bottles off, and will purchase again.

However, there will be people that won't appreciate this foundation as much, and I understand that too. First off: one of the reason I wanted this foundation is because of the light coverage - I had good skin that mostly needed light coverage and some minor concealing. The foundation can be built to light-medium, but no more, IMO. Second, if you have combination or oily skin, this is no going to stick well - it kind sits slightly strangely on oily skin and doesn't last far as long. If there is high moisture in the air, this doesn't hold up well on my skin, which makes this unsuitable for me in warm, humid environments (which is not my usual environment). When it's warm and humid, this foundation almost doesn't "bond" to my skin, but just sits on top of it, with a barrier of moisture in between. The last thing is the price: this foundation is pricey! Personally, I've tried many foundations and not found anything like it, but it' possible to achieve a similar finish, color and texture by mixing... which I don't like to take time to do.

Personally, I love this, but it isn't a foundation that will suit everyone or work in every climate, so I'd recommend to think about the pros and cons of it and read reviews before you buy, unless you have money to waste. Maybe buy a sample of this from camerareadycosmetics.com, if you can

If anyone is interested bout the packaging: pretty, but annoying. When there's about 1/5 left of the foundation, this begins to get hard to get out, and the opening when you unscrew the lid is really small, and it's hard to get the product from the sides out, which is wasteful. I have to pick the product out with a q-tip... definitely not something I think should be required with a luxury foundation...

Loose Powders -Koh Gen Do -Maifanshi UV Face Powder

Great product. Gives natural finish and doesn’t make the skin looks cakey. I use the beige color as it gives a more true to skin color. Would definitely repurchase!

Eye Makeup Remover -Koh Gen Do -Cleansing Spa Water

on 9/29/2017 1:34:00 PM


I started using the Spa Cleansing Cloths after the gym and while traveling before deciding to purchase the Cleansing Water. I'm in love. I had been using Bioderma Sensibio H20 which has fewer ingredients, but my skin is much better using Koh Gen Do's water. I have combination skin with an oily nose and chin, and this water is mildly acidic which makes all the difference. A little bit goes a long way and it's helped not only the oily areas on my face, but the dry ones as well. I apply the water to a very soft cotton square (Koh Gen Do or Cle de Peau) and gently wipe my face. It leaves my skin clean, hydrated, and calm. Completely worth the money.
