The first time I across Kose was when I was 18 years where my mum bought her first bottle of Kose Sekkisei Lotion home. Later when I started working, I learnt more about Kose and there are one product which is my all time favourite! Continue reading.. I will tell you more about it!
So far I have not attended any Kose before so when I was invited to attend one last week, I was happy to go go .. to see that if I can pick up few beauty tips. It was conducted in Pavilion by Ms Jo Chow, a Beauty Trainer in Kose.
She said that there are daily basic , daily special and weekly care for everyone.
Kose Sekkisei range is a whitening range which are recommended for people who skin concern on dullness, yellowish, dry, roughness and dark spots. And these people are seeking for translucent, even, brighten, moist balance and smoothen skin.
Japanese & Chinese herbal extracts are the main ingredients for Kose Sekkisei range
Oriental Plant Extracts: Coix Seed Extract effects suchs as increased metabolism, whitening, moisturization and prevention of skin roughness.
Melothria (White Lotus) extract suppress melanin production has whitening effects on the skin.
Angelica Extract have disinfectant, whitening and moisturising effects.
First we need to use Kose Sekkeisei Cleansing Cream (RM 108/140g) to remove all our makeup. And need that much to remove a full face makeup.
When removing face makeup using cleansing cream, Using small circular motions, massage gently into your skin with outward circles. Then dab dry with tissue paper before washing them off. If you have heavy eye makeup & waterproof mascara, you still need to use proper eye makeup remover to clean them. Also I prefer to do double cleansing using facial cleanser after removing makeup.
After that comes the highlight of the day which is the Kose Sekkisei Lotion! This is my favourite lotion and have been using them for a few years!
Kose Sekkisei Lotion texture is very light and if you are going to apply as face lotion, use it directly after cleanser. Pour about 20cent size on the cotton pad before applying it moving upwards and outward.
Mr Osamu Dobashi an International Makeup Artist from Japan gave a detail introduction on Kose Sekkisei Lotion and said that this lotion :-
1) Is created based on a “beautiful translucent skin recipe” containing items carefully selected out of approximately 100 types of oriental plants. A lotion that creates fine-textured, hydrated, translucent skin like snow, using the hydrating power of gentle oriental plant extracts.
2) Balances out the skin’s moisture levels, preventing dullness, roughness, and pimples caused by dryness, as well as redness caused by sunburn from sunlight, or by the sun’s reflection in snowy areas.
3) texture in cloudy white lotion blends instantly into the skin, just like melting snow, creating fine-textured, plump skin. With a refreshing, light sensation, the lotion leaves the surface of the skin feeling silky smooth, yet hydrated. Your skin regains its natural pure translucency down to your pores.
4) Can be used on your face, neck, body & mask.
In total there are 9 benefits in this Kose Sekkisei Lotion
Besides using it as a face lotion do you know you can use it as as lotion mask?
If your face are really dry & you have important event to attend, you can use this lotion to made it as emergency mask as it can boost up 10x moisture immediately by putting on 5-10 mins! You can buy capsule mask from Kose 's counter!
The mask is fully drenched and ready to be put on my face!
It's really soothing to have this mask on, not only instant hydration and face looks brighter after using it!
After removing the face mask, don't throw it away because you can use the remaining lotion on the mask to massage on my neck, décolletage, hand and arms!
Sekkisei Lotion is available in Malaysia in 2 sizes ( Available in every KOSE counters)
Note :Once a year on their anniversary, they would be selling a LE bottle of 500ml!
After that don't forget to use Sekkisei Emulsion (RM172/200ml) to lock down moisture on our face. I had this at home but apparently I applied the wrong way. The correct way was to pour the milky moisturiser into a cotton pad before applying it moving upwards and outward so better penetration.
After that I'm using these few items to touch up!
Kose Sekkisei White BB Cream SPF40 PA+++ in 02
Kose Esprique Melty Fix Cheek in RD400
Kose Glossy Type Lipstick # RD451 Wild Blush
Kose Esprique Eyebrow Pencil in BR-301

The texture is creamy and it has a signature Sekkisei scent. Coverage is medium and it can cover my face redness and spots!
