Lotions/ Creams -Kose -CoenRich Q10 Whitening Medicated Hand & Finger- Coenzyme Q10 Tranexamic Acid(Deep Moisture)

on 1/16/2018 5:02:00 AM

This is a highly-raved hand cream loved by Japanese ladies and has won numerous beauty awards, among those worth noting is the Cosme Beauty Award.

It's a drug-store brand from a giant cosmetics company, Kose. I got this from Boots in Bangkok as my usual hand cream is running low in stock. This product comes in a minimalist packaging with a plastic squeeze tube and a screw off cap.

You dispense the product by gently squeezing on the tube which dispenses the white non-fragranced cream through a built-in nozzle. My first impression of this hand cream is that it's rather thick and rich in texture. It does not glide off effortlessly and takes a bit of effort to apply it evenly on the hands. Just imagine that the cream wouldn't move if you were to turn your hands upside down!

I find this a great product in all as it does a good job in moisturising, but most importantly, does NOT leave an oily cast so you can resume your daily tasks as usual. This is a medicated product, infused with Coenzyme Q10- known for its anti-aging properties, and Tranexamic Acid which is a whitening agent to keep hands ages youthful and supple.

I would recommend this lovely handcream to anyone looking to pamper their hands/as a daily beauty ritual.

Sunscreen -Kose -Sekkisei Sun Protect Essence Gel SPF50+/PA++++

on 12/4/2017 10:00:00 AM


I’m on the fence about whether to give this 4 or 5 stars because it’s an excellent product that’s too moisturizing for my skin type, but I can see how it would be a HG for someone with drier skin. It never causes breakouts for me even if I use it every day. (Biore and Senka both make me break out) It’s a watery opaque gel that’s highly moisturizing. It’s heavy on my combination skin during summer, but in winter the extra moisture is nice. It leaves a dewy finish on me, and that’s fine on no-makeup days, but I have trouble applying makeup over it. It’s not a HG for me, but because it’s a moisturizing sunscreen that doesn’t cause breakouts I expect to finish the tube, and possibly repurchase. (EDIT) It's now the middle of winter with temperatures below freezing and really dry air, and I'm using this sunscreen all the time and am really glad to have it. In this weather it goes on easily and sits well under makeup, and the long-lasting moisturizing effects are very welcome. I'm revising my rating from a 4 to a 5, with the caveat that although it's not a one-size-fits-all sunscreen for every skin type and situation, it's amazing for very dry skin or dry weather.

Cleansers -Kose -Softymo - Speedy Cleansing Oil

on 11/28/2017 7:29:00 PM


I'm on the fence about this product. Like other reviews here, I first hated it, but it grew on me. I finished a bottle, but am not rushing out to purchase another.

I like oils and balms for my dry/dehydrated skin. With a little work, this product does break down makeup and sunscreen. It seemed to leave my skin a bit dry, however.

I like the packaging alot. The transparent bottle allows you to see how much product is left and the pump it very good. It pumped out all the product - even the last bit.

Overall, it's an okay product with a good price and good packaging, but nothing exceptional.

Foundations -Kose -Sekkisei White CC Cream

on 11/26/2017 8:24:00 PM


This cc cream doesn't really have much coverage and very lightweight on the skin. It's only good for color corrector. This is for those who wants a (no makeup , makeup look) and a very natural finish. Suitable for my combo skin. I feel like this cc cream function is more to skincare than makeup because it doesn't break me out like the others did to me and I love how it comes with a PA++++ 😉.

Cleansers -Kose -Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil

on 11/24/2017 1:35:00 PM


Hate to bring the ratings down but this is not a good oil for acne prones. It's a thin oil and I felt like I needed several pumps to cover my face and it didn't completely remove my eye makeup. It doesn't rinse clean either. I'm guessing that's why it caused me to break out even though I washed it off with a traditional cleanser. I was hoping this would be a good alternate to DHC but it's not even close.
