And nothing beats coming home to a huge package waiting for you to unwrap!
It was BIG!!! And completely took me by surprise!!!!
It was a couple of weeks back (during Chinese New Year + Valentines Day period) that i received a huge surprise box of happiness package from KOSE Malaysia. Unboxing it had me grinning from cheek to cheek as it was beautifully decorated with details of sweet pink and white balloons and the Kose Sekkisei Trial Kit Set (RM99) that comes along with it.

Read below for my Review and experience on using the products :
I have always loved beauty products made from Japan and i was eager to try out the amazing wonders Kose sekkisei range has to offer this time around.
I started first with Sekkisei white liquid wash. A liquid wash that provide a skin healthy glow while known to retain its moisture within. Pumping a good 2 pumps onto my palm i gently lather until foam forms and massage gently onto my face. It felt really good and refreshing indeed.
I then tried their special care Sekkisei Clear White Mask.. (it is known as white mask however it is NOT WHITE AT ALL). It is a peel-off mask that removes blackheads, dead skin cells and tighten visible pores. To use, i spread a good lather across my face (avoiding the eyes, eyebrows, hairline ad lips area) and when dried i slowly peel it off inwards starting from the outer areas of the face.
After clearing all the impurities within my skin i then did their Bihadagoyami mask. It was pretty cool as i used the quick lotion mask which surpassingly offers 10x higher moisture that instantly brightens and rejuvenates the skin.
Known to be their star product. Sekkisei Lotion. A refreshing lotion that is suppose to enhance the skin translucency and clarity. I soaked a generous amount of the lotion mask with Sekkisei Lotion and places in onto my clean face for a good 10 minutes.
After the mask. No rinsing is needed which brings me to the next step of Sekkisei Emulsion. It is a brightening emulsion to retain moisture for a supple and soft skin.
Application was to be applied with a cotton and spreading it evenly over the skin. Its milky texture was simply divine. Not oily at all and certainly not sticky, and easily absorbs into the skin.
It is no doubt one of my favourites from this range by far.
I was really amazed by the products upon trying it consecutively for a week (basic care daily and twice i did the special care within 3 days apart).
The SEKKISEI, which is originated from Japan has been trusted and adored by a great number of women since its release in 1985. Its products are designed and created for skin translucency. They are known to harnesses the power of Oriental Herb extracts, which are carefully-selected from about 100 different herbs. Much research had been conducted to develop SEKKISEI, and to achieve the fine balance between oil and water content to result in its fine-textured lotion. Its fine texture, hydrated “snow-white” skin effect has made it KOSÉ’s best-selling product.
Would i use the products again? Most definitely!! I loved the natural refreshing scent that comes along with the product and i could feel the changes it made on my skin. I can’t thank you enough KOSE MALAYSIA and The Butterfly Project Malaysia for sharing and introducing to me such a wonderful products. I had an amazing experience and I am sincerely glad and thankful to have an opportunity to try them.
