Assalamualaikum and hello!
I've received a huge box few weeks back from KOSÉ and I am super stoked when I received it! The parcel is so huge but due to poor service of the courier service, I received a dented box. :( And the balloon inside was dying *hahaha* and it didn't go up. The fact that I opened up the box on the day I received it. When I looked at the slip, it was dated a week before that. I mean the courier service took ONE week to deliver the box to me? OMG. LOL. I actually recorded an unboxing video of it but it's pretty sad looking so never mind la, I don't think I need to post it up because I bet you have seen the unboxing video in the blogging sphere lately. :D Anyway, lets just jump right into the review, shall we? :)

SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash
RP : RM139.40 (140ml)
SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash contains Taurine-based cleansing agents to clear out impurities and keeps the skin hydrated, whereas Rubus Suavissmuss Extract diminishes skin's dullness and make it more glowing and repair skin damage caused by harsh UV rays. The cleanser itself is liquid-y and can be applied directly to the skin without adding any water. However I like to damp my face with water first, then one pump of the cleanser is applied all over my skin. I massage the cleanser into mys kin for about a minute then rinse it off. I love the subtle scent of the cleanser, it is somewhat a bit florally. The cleanser does not give me that tight-feeling and does not irritate my skin. I think the Taurine-based cleansing agents worked its magic because my face feel soooo clean when I use this!
RP : RM191.80 (140ml)
Ingredients in SEKKISEI Emulsion includes Inula Britanica Flower, Chinese Pearl Barley, Paeonia Albiflora Root, Melothria Heterophylla and Angelica that works to keep the skin translucent by preventing freckles, dark spots and dryness. I love the gel-cream texture as it absorbs quickly into the skin. It feels cooling and refreshing and at the same time it keeps my skin soft and supple. Even though it is fast absorbing, it feels hydrating!
RP : RM180.20 (200ml) / RM275.60 (360ml)
SEKKISEI Lotion can be used as a toner or a face mask. Personally I love using it as a face mask because I find it to be more effective. This hydrating lotion balance out skin's moisture levels, prevents dullness, soothes redness and so much more. I actually have done my full review on this lotion so please read my FULL REVIEW ON SEKKISEI LOTION which I wrote almost 2 years ago. :) Okay, so how to use this lotion as a face mask? Let me take you through step by step.
|Step 1 : Take off the cap of the bottle.|
|Step 2 : Take one of the Bihadagoyomi mask.|
|Step 3 : Put in the Bihadagoyomi mask in the bottle's cap and pour in the lotion according to your preference. I put in at least 20 drops each time of usage. Wait for a while and the mask will expand.|
|Step 4 : Open up the mask and just apply it on your face as the usual sheet mask do. :) Leave it for 10 minutes but I always leave it on until it dries up. :D|
SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask
RP : RM94.30 (80g)
SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask is a gentle peel-off mask that removes dullness and dead skin cells. I love using this on my skin and especially on my nose! It brightens up my complexion and hydrates at the same time. This mask has Chinese Quince extract which reduce sebum production and the oriental plant extracts aids in whitening. The mask texture is a bit sticky like glue but it spreads easily, thanks to the Nano-size black powder.
|Yes people, it's black! Let it dry on the skin for at least 10 minutes.|
|After 10 minutes.|
|Peel it off and you will have soft, smooth and bright skin! :)|
To be honest with you, KOSÉ SEKKISEI is one of skincare products that you really need to try out. I remembered when I first started using the lotion (2 years back), I always use it for special occasion or on those days where I need my skin to be perfect. I actually used SEKKISEI Lotion on the morning of my engagement in June 2014 because I want a flawless canvas for my makeup. :) This trial kit is worth trying because RM99 for 4 products is such a good deal. You can use this trial kit at least for a month! Get it at KOSÉ counters near you. :)
