Get On Your Snow White Journey With KOSÉ Sekkisei Trial Kit

Friday, March 04, 2016

Assalamualaikum and hello readers! I bet most of you are already familiar with the brand KOSÉ right? Maybe you've been using or have used any products from them, or maybe you're just like me, a first timer in experiencing KOSÉ products ^_^ Let's have a bit of introduction on KOSÉ SEKKISEI line before we head for my review alright?

Designed for skin brightening with the aim to achieve translucent and glowing skin, KOSÉ SEKKISEI has been around in the skincare market for thirty years and it is still going strong and loved by many of its users due to its effectiveness. Made from a mixture of potent ingredients like the Oriental Herb extracts, you can find coix seed, melothria (white lotus) and Angelica in KOSÉ SEKKISEI potion brew to produce the brightening elixir we're using today.

Surprise surprise! KOSÉ SEKKISEI hears what you want and now they've came out with a very special trial kit worth only RM99 (including GST) with hope that everyone can try their cult beauty products. As you can see in the image above, KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit comes with :
  • Setsuko Pouch with Kimono or City Chic design (that girl is so cute!)
  • Bihadagoyomi mask x 3pcs
  • SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash - 20ml
  • SEKKISEI Emulsion - 70ml
  • SEKKISEI Lotion - 100ml
  • SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask - 20g

These pictures were taken fresh the moment I unboxed my parcel, hehe! The box containing my KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit was so pretty and huge but sadly it was 80% dented during the courier process so I don't have the heart to photograph it as it looks exactly like it has been trampled by an elephant XD luckily my trial kit survived the shipping ordeal! 

I have been religiously using all the products in this kit and I can say that it brings nothing but change and happiness to my skin ^_^ I'm so glad because earlier in my journey, my little friend Setsuko managed to guide me on how to use all the products in this KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit. I feel the responsibility to share with you the step by step before you head to KOSÉ counters to get your kit, so why not we first go and check it out down below :

In all skincare routine, it is crucial that we start with cleaning our canvas first. KOSÉ SEKKISEI White Liqud Wash is specifically designed with Taurine-based cleansing agent in order to clear out impurities on the skin while simultaneously keeping the skin hydrated. Another ingredient in KOSÉ SEKKISEI White Liqud Wash is Rubus Suavissmus extract that works to combat skin dullness and at the same time repairs the UV damage on our skin caused by exposure to the sun. The cleanser is quite milky and I love the after effect it gives on my skin. It does not dry my skin nor does it give any tight feeling. It does not feel harsh at all but it left my skin feeling so clean and I just wish that I have a pile of this as backup!

Now that my sweaty, oily skin has been thoroughly cleansed by KOSÉ SEKKISEI White Liqud Wash, I move on to the second step, which is applying KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion all over my face and neck using a piece of cotton pad. If you are confused with skincare terms, just remember that lotion is equivalent to toner, okay? I call this KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion as the "power liquid" for my skin due to the effects I'm experiencing upon using it. The flowery fragrance is absolutely pleasant to my nose and it kinda gives me a very relaxing feeling, like an aromatherapy session. I love how fresh and cool my skin feels every time I use this KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion and I am glad that I could sometimes see that my cotton pad turns a tiny bit greyish after wiping off my face. As far as I know, it shows that my dead skin layer is being removed as well! I bet now you can already see how the users of KOSÉ SEKKISEI products have translucent, glowing skin ;) trust me, I already forgot my other toners ever since I started using KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion, it's like a no-turning back curse in my skin-toning game!

Oh, remember the Bihadagoyomi masks included in this KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit? Here's how to use them! Simply take it off the stack and immerse one piece of the mask into a pool of KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion ^_^ you can use any tiny cup or just the cap of your KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion to soak the Bihadagoyomi mask. Once it is fully soaked, open the mask and lay it on your face, then go and relax on the couch or on your bed for 10-15 minutes (standard masking procedure) and quench your skin's thirst with the goodness of KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion! Easy peasy right ;)

Don't forget to moisturize! That is why a bottle of KOSÉ SEKKISEI Emulsion is included in your KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit. As a person who is always on the go and always require a short prep time for skincare and makeup, I found this KOSÉ SEKKISEI Emulsion a true saviour because it gets absorbed into my skin pretty fast and it does not leave any traces of greasiness either. I realized that my skin has been behaving at its best with this emulsion on, as in it does not feel too dry though I stay in air-conditioned office for long hours. I will feel pretty sad when I run out of this KOSÉ SEKKISEI Emulsion, I must restock! Oh ya, it smells like heaven too, I'm definitely in love!

I have this one skincare habit at home. When I'm bored, I wear facial mask. I love peel-off type of mask because it's more fun, it doesn't drip of fall from my face, and there's this kind of satisfaction when peeling it off my skin, You get what I'm sayin' brah? So, thanks to my little friend Setsuko's thoughtfulness, we can all have this cute tube of KOSÉ SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask in our trial kit too! 

I call this a two in one mask. Function number one : to remove dullness, whitens skin and hydrates skin. Function number two : to scare people around the house and even your neighbour (peek at the window and grin to them) because this whitening mask is black in colour, muehehe~ Verdict? I have nothing to hate about this mask! It is so gentle and it does not hurt my skin when I'm peeling it off. This mask contains Chinese Quince extract that reduces sebum production and it comes with oriental plant extracts that helps in skin whitening. I found that this mask too is very useful in removing whiteheads on my nose. Be careful when squeezing it off the tube as it is quite runny but fret not, and don't judge a mask by its runny-ness because this mask is uber-sticky upon contact with skin surface. See my point is, it does not drip like crazy, it does not drip at all ^_^

Well ladies and gentlemen, I guess I have successfully coached you through the snow white journey with my friend Setsuko, and I hope that you will go and get your KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit to experience it and pleaseee love this KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit like I do.

Honestly, I was never a fan of any trial kit. I found them to be insufficient most of the time. However with KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit it is totally a different game. KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit knows what you need, it caters to your need and it is exactly what you need, to see how true they are to their claims of helping you to get bright, translucent and hydrated skin. I am not saying this for the sake of a review, you know how brutally honest I can be most of the time right :p I tell you what I've experienced, and I say that KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit is worth the try because the products are really helpful for me since I recently suffered a bad sunburn after joining a run. I also walk under the sun a few times per day, I don't usually bring and umbrella with me and I can say that with KOSÉ SEKKISEI trial kit at my disposal, my skin is constantly being taken care of and I would be glad to repeat purchase after I finish the last drop of my KOSÉ SEKKISEI lotion and emulsion :)
