Sunscreen -Kose -Sekkisei White UV Emulsion

on 3/5/2018 7:18:00 AM


I love the Sekkisei White CC cream, so when my Koh Gen Do sunscreen ran out, I`ve decided to try the UV emulsion from this line. It`s high protection, SPF50 PA++++. I wanted a texture that isn`t super oily, but that isn`t matte, either. This emulsion is perfect, bordering the line between dewy and satin, a nice, hydrating finish that is great for spring and sits well under foundations. There is no white cast and it does not clog my pores. I`ve been having issues with acne recently, so I was worried about reacting to sunscreen. Like most Sekkisei products, this sunscreen is so mild, my skin loves it. A definite keeper, though in summer I will switch to a matte formula, just because my skin is simply too oily for this in the hot, humid Japanese summer.

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


I love this! It doesnt break out my sensitive, acne-prone and combination skin. It is lightweight yet moisturizing and is really good for those who have dry skin. it is fragrance free and is good for blocking UV as my skin tone hasn't changed and I have less pigmentaion. only thing is, you'll get greasy if its super hot and humid. no white cast. you may ready my full and detailed review of this product here https://brushstrokesandlullabies.blogspot.com/2018/02/my-hg-sunscreen.html

Cleansers -Kose -Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil

on 2/9/2018 5:10:00 PM


I so, so wanted to love this, but it broke me out, in small, but consistent pimples that stopped as soon as I stopped using this product. I'm still double cleansing, but with a micellar water instead of an oil cleanser for the moment while my face rebalances. Just a note to oily, acne-prone folks, proceed with caution! It may work for you, but it may not.

Cleansers -Kose -Sekkisei Liquid Face Wash

on 2/7/2018 2:20:00 PM

This face wash is so expensive! I look it up on line & it cost like $46 dollars πŸ’΅ I would never spend this high amount of money πŸ’° for a face wash especially not this one! & the only reason I'm using it now as a morning face wash is Bc it was a gift from a family friend who is a skincare snob ! She has this belief in her that the more expensive the products the better! & she has a preference to this particular Japanese brand! But using this cleanser for about a week! I wasn't that keen on it bc mostly I'm very sensitive to fragrance in my skincare products & get allergies & red rashes on my face this cleanser has a very strong scent which I found annoying Bc it lingers on even after rinsing off with tons of splashes of water πŸ’¦ & it made the dry spots on my face drier ! Although it cleanses my oily t zone effectively! No thanks I keep on using my fragrance free Clinique stuff! The only postive points of this product is the convient & easy pump bottle & the nice blue color of it I'm trying to finish this stuff off Bc it's expensive but I'm finding it's really drying out my skin Bc I checked out the ingredients on line & the detergents inside it are quite soap like ! No wonder it's going me dry patches πŸ˜–πŸ‘ŽπŸ»!

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.
