Major surprise from KOSÉ!
Hey guys! Guess whats in for February? Im one of the lucky few blogger to be getting a KOSÉ Sekkisei Trial Kit for review this month, and i cant wait to share about it to all you lovely readers! If you havent heard about KOSÉ, KOSÉ happens to be THE skin care product from Japan. With over 40 years of restoring translucence to women's skin, based on an age-old 'beautiful translucent skin recipe' its no wonder that the products are well-known worldwide!

Close up shot!
What i love most about this range would be that its suitable for all skin types! Enriched with oriental herb extracts which are carefully selected from about 100 different plants, i can re-assure to you that all the effort they took was worth it! The SEKKISEI product is great for those who want to achieve brighter, even-toned and moisturised skin (which im actually indirectly talking about me) hehe.

Contents of the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Trial Kit
And since i received this trial kit for review, time to get down and dirty with the products. hehe. This Trial Kit contains 5 star products from KOSÉ SEKKISEI, which all together comes in this special edition trial kit. The main ingredients used in this product would be the trio of oriental plant extracts: Coix Seed, Melothria (White Lotus) and Angelica work diligently to keep you skin in perfect condition!

The trial kit includes a SEKKISEI White Lotion Wash 20ml , SEKKISEI Lotion 100ml, SEKKISEI Emulsion 70ml, SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask 10g, 3 pieces of Bihadagoyomi Mask and an exclusive Setsuko pounch.


SEKKISE White Liquid Wash
First up would be the Sekkisei White Liquid Wash, which is suppose to cleanse skin without stripping away moisture from the skin. Its Taurine based cleansing agents leaves the skin clean and hydrated while the Rubus Suavissmus Extract Enchance skin dullness and soothes UV damages. Skin is then restored to it optimal condition!

Texture of liquid wash
When scrubed without water
From a first impression, i have to say that i love the fact that it comes in their signature blue pump bottle! It makes it easier to control the amount and the fact that it sustains the cleanliness of the content.

When in contact with water, it forms bubbles!
To use this is pretty simple. Since it comes in a pump bottle, dispense 1 to 2 pumps onto palm and add water then gently lather until foam forms. Give it a good massage before washing it off. Upon washing my face, dont be surprised if you have a sudden cooling sensation feel on your face. Hehe. Next up would be the Sekkisei Lotion which is KOSÉ's Star Product.


SEKKISEI Lotion *Star product
The Sekkisei Lotion is one of the major craze among beauty enthusiast where it happens to be KOSÉ's bestseller! The product contains ingredients carefully selected out of 100 types of oriental plants and it can be used as a toner or a mask.

Dap toner on a cotton pad
Gently pat on face
To use it, just pour the lotion generously onto a cotton pad and pat gently on face. The form of the lotion is like liquid, but upon applying it around my face, it leaves like a really cool feeling on the skin. I love how it has no scent, and that it feels very gentle on the skin.


Next would be the Sekkisei Emulsion. The emulsion is a quick absorbing moisturiser which claims to work deep into the skin, preventing freckles, dark spots and dryness. Ingredients like Inula Britanica Flower, Chinese Pearl Barley, Paeonia Albiflora root, Melothria Heterophylla and Angelica to reveal a more translucent complexion.

Comes in a convient pump bottle
Texture is white in colour, and its also very milky!
Gently spread evenly over skin.
To use, dispense 2 pumps on cotton pad and spread evenly over skin. The texture was rather milky, but what amazed me was that it was absorbed to my skin almost instantly. So i guess the its true when they say that its a quick absorbing moisturiser. And on a plus side, i absolutely love that it doesnt leave any sticky residue on the skin. *PLUS POINTS*


SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask
If you need extra care, white not use the SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask as a special care regime? The SEKKISEI Clear Whitening  Mask comes in a tube and the purpose is to remove dullness and dead skin cells white brightening and hydrating the skin at the same time.

Black in colour.
I was rather surprised when i found out that the SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask is black in colour. It has Nano-sized black powder which allows the mask to spread easily while removing blackheads, dead skin cells and tighten visible pores which is great cause my pores get blocked pretty often *CRIES*

Apply on face
Evenly spread the mask around face
After 15 minutes, remove the mask from bottom to top.
To use the SEKKISEI clear whitening mask, all you need to do is to spread it across your face and be sure to avoid the eyes, eyebrows, hairline & lips area. For about 10-15 minutes or until its fully dry, peel it off from inwards from the outer areas of your face. After peeling it off, you can actually spot the blackheads from the mask and i dont know about you, but it gave me that satisfied feeling of knowing that its out. hehe


The Bihadagoyomi mask!
Last but not least would be the Bihadagoyomi mask, another option to add into your special care regime, which is actually a tablet mask that delivers maximum benefits of lotion into skin. Yes, you guessed it! If you love the SEKKISEI Lotion, why not pamper you face with a Bihadagoyomi mask for better absorption of the lotion? Hehe. The Bihadagoyomi mask claims to offer 10x higher moisture that instantly brightens and rejuvenates skin.

You may need a small glass or bowl
Add the Bihadagoyomi mask and soak it with the SEKKISEI Lotion
To use this, fully soak the lotion mask with SEKKISEI Lotion, and place it onto clean face for about 5 to 10 minutes. No rinsing would be needed. Once you remove the mask, its no doubt that it would leave your skin feeling refreshed. Might be making sure i do this as a ritual each week. hehe

Very relaxing and cooling too
So there you have it! The SEKKISEI special edition trial kit is perfet for first-time users who would want to feel and see the SEKKISEI difference for themselves. The trial kit is currently priced at RM99, GST included and it includes the following items that i mentioned in this post. Or if youre already a KOSÉ SEKKISEI fan, you can always purchase this as your travel kit too!


At only RM99, its definitely worth it to purchase this KOSÉ SEKKISEI Trial Kit, and its also great as an introduction to the brand for first-time users. I love how its suitable for all skin types, and that it feels very gentle on the skin. This trial kit would be good enough to last you about 3 to 4 weeks depending how often you use it and i do feel that it rejuvenates my skin. I also see my complexion getting better after following the basic care regime of liquid wash, lotion and emulsion. I will definitely repurchase, with full sized products cause the results are just too amazing! You have to try it to believe it *wink
