こんにちわ、みなさん! In case you're wondering, it means hello, everyone! I'm really putting my Japanese education to good use and seeing as that my 先生 has gone back to Japan for a month, I've got to buck up and practice it with every given chance! Lucky for me, whatever I'll be talking about today is fairly related to Japan so the hiragana practice does come in handy. So less rubbish and more good stuff.

I'm pretty sure 8 out of 10 if not all girls have heard of the brand KOSÉ by now but if you haven't, don't fret. This is where you can learn about them. KOSÉ is a cosmetic brand from Japan that was established in the year 1946 by Mr. Kozaburo Kobayashi and the company's main aim has always been to deliver cosmetics that would suit everyone's needs at top notch quality so you'll know that you're getting your money's worth when you splurge on KOSÉ products. Their line of cosmetic brands includes SEKKISEI, SEKKISEI SUPREME, SEIKISHO, ESPRIQUE and BEAUTÉ de KOSÉ just to name a few.

 Yay to new stuff!

What I'm going to rave about today however is a product from their SEKKISEI line called the SEKKISEI lotion mask; a brand new wonder that I've fallen head over heels for. Seriously, I'm a sucker for anything that's great on my skin because I believe that every girl deserves to be pampered even by themselves if not by their better half. And these pampering sessions begins from home where masks, lotions and other things all come into play.

Here's the review pack I got!

And when removed from the pack, this is what it looks like! So compact!

The thing about growing up for me has always been my oily and dull skin; mainly from genes and my laziness in giving my face proper care but the SEKKISEI lotion mask is here to save the day by giving my skin an instant brightening effect with the natural ingredients from just about 100 types of oriental plants that it packs. This goes along with their recipe for beautiful and translucent skin so everybody can have that ideally perfect skin that they want.

The KOSÉ SEKKISEI lotion mask; unfolded.

Really liking the texture of the mask as opposed to others.

Oh and have I mentioned that it would give your skin a good moisture balance while reducing dullness, roughness, and pimples from the dryness of your skin? Pay good attention here, ladies who spend just about an entire day under the air-conditioning like myself! While the air-conditioning is undoubtedly comfortable to be around, it totally sucks moisture off your skin so you're left with nothing but dry skin that creates all these problems later on. And then you'd probably be under the sunlight when you head out for lunch like myself, resulting in redness from the sunburn but SEKKISEI has that totally under control too.

Here's your truly without make up before the mask. Working 9 AM to 6 PM from Mondays to Fridays will turn anyone from the 20s to look like they're 50 or so.

I hope you sleep well tonight hehehe...

The thing about regular face lotions that I hate is how it leaves me with this sticky feeling and my hair keeps getting stuck to my face involuntarily and it's annoying to have to separate them. The lotion from this mask however would blend instantly into the skin; almost like melting snow onto our warm bodies so our skin is well moisturized and naturally regains its translucency right down to the pores.

Yours truly after the mask. Any thoughts on the brighter skin?

Of course, we don't expect the lotion to just work magic without anything in it. In fact, there are 3 ingredients that has been doing all the work in this SEKKISEI lotion mask so all these miracles could happen and they're none other than:

Coix seeds. These look like Chinese lotus seeds to me!

Coix Seed extract is well known to increase metabolism while providing our skin with a whitening and moisturizing effect. It also prevents our skin from getting rough so you should now know how important it is to be in the SEKKISEI lotion mask!

Angelica extract. I actually think this looks like the Chinese ginseng!

Angelica extract on the other hand acts as a disinfectant from all the impurties our skin is exposed to on a daily basis whether we're outdoors or not as well as giving our skin a whitening and moisturizing effect.

Melothria. This reminds me of the Chinese "dong quai" instead.

Finally, the Melothria (Or better known as White lotus) extract has been added in the SEKKISEI lotion mask to suppress melanin production; a natural process in our body that gives our skin that tan when we're exposed to the sun. It's not that hard to figure that this is also a key ingredient to give our skin that whitening glow, right?

By now, you should be completely sold to the product so I'll cut to the chase to tell you that this amazing product can be found in every KOSÉ counter you can chance upon and they're sold for RM 170 for 200ml and RM 260 for 360ml respectively. More information can be found at their Facebook pages at https://www.facebook.com/kose.malaysia and https://apps.facebook.com/sekkisei_lotion or if you're on the more daring side, you could even check out their Ms. Cinderella contest where you can win up RM 15,000 in cash price and a trip to Japan!
