Sana, For those who havent used sana cosmetics and products before, Its a quality brand in Japan, Though it says 'Maiko powder' Only some of Those in kyoto training to become geisha Use sana powder, But i know for sure, The Sana Lip Balms are used by maiko, Religiously Almost!,
You really cant go wrong with this product, it has made a name by its self.
I have 4 sana compacts and powders, The product lasts along time, and the staying power is incredible. Some Sana Compacts powders and foundation have high spf 35+ - 50+ So its a very handy product for people avoiding brown spots and harsh ray burns!. I am actually at this moment. ordering more product! Well done sana
Another great product by Sana that I purchased totally blind-folded, based on the ad display. I was quite sure I picked the beige shade (one of the 2) but instead the one arrived was Sakura shade. It gave a whitish cast upon application on my NC 30-35 skin, it totally disappeared after 1 minute, skin feels clean & matte. No pasty, no chalkiness, great for my T-zone, although I will not put it on my dry cheeks. At this point I doubt if either shades differs that much; can't comment on the break-out part as no product has caused me that yet, only stress will. The ad claimed it is for Geisha, but I doubt that very much d/t translucent quality of the product; unless one really piles it on top of a thick foundation. This little jar with a marshmallow puff will last me for the summer coming. Will purchase.
This is a soft loose powder made with silk that is suppose to hydrate the skin and control oil at the same time. It's fairly colorless, but if you use enough it will give you a soft "just powdered" look. Very pretty. Supposedly, SANA dedicated this line of makeup to the geisha artists. The Powder has silk in it and is very very soft and "silky." Gives one a very fresh look and is scented with cherry blossom. The smell is non-offensive and if you buy it in a Japanese supermarket store, it's about $10.49 for a small plastic box with a thick puff, which seems like it'll last a good long time. So far, so good. It's better than the MAC powders that I've used. If this breaks me out, I'll tell you all. So far, it's great.
