KOSÉ SEKKISEI’s Special Edition Trial Kit

Hi!

I received KOSÉ SEKKISEI’s Special Edition Trial Kit to try out as part of a collaboration with The Butterfly Project Malaysia + KOSÉ.

In this trial kit, packed into an exclusive Setsuko pouch (kimono style or city chic style), 5 star products are included: SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash (20ml), SEKKISEI Lotion (100ml), SEKKISEI Emulsion (70ml), SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask (10g) and Bihadagoyomi mask (3pcs).
I got the City Chic Style!

‘Specially-designed for skin translucency, SEKKISEI products harness the power of Oriental Herb extracts, which are carefully-selected from about 100 different plants, creating a harmonious and skin-loving formula that gives women brighter, even-toned and moisturised skin.’

'A trio of oriental plant extracts: Coix Seed, Melothria (White Lotus) and Angelica work diligently to keep your skin in perfect condition, protected from the harsh environment.'


SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash (140ml/RM131.40)
Cleanse skin without stripping away moisture with this delicate cleanser. Taurine-based cleansing agents leave skin clean and hydrated; while Rubus Suavissmus Extract enhance skin dullness and soothes UV damage. Skin is restored to its optimal condition, ready for the next skincare step.


SEKKISEI Lotion (200ml/RM180.20, 360ml/RM275.60)
This SEKKISEI bestseller contains ingredients carefully-selected out of 100 types of oriental plants. Used as a toner or a mask, the fine-textured hydrating lotion balances out skin’s moisture levels, prevents dullness, soothes redness and more. KOSÉ’s tip: For instant hydration, place a bihadagoyomi mask into the cap and pour SEKKISEI Lotion until the mask tablet puffs up. Place on face for 10 minutes and notice instantly hydrated skin!


SEKKISEI Emulsion (140ml/RM191.80)
This quick-absorbing moisturiser works deep into skin, preventing freckles, dark spots and dryness. Ingredients like Inula Britanica Flower, Chinese Pearl Barley, Paeonia Albiflora Root, Melothria Heterophylla and Angelica reveal a more translucent complexion.  Apply 1 to 2 pumps on a cotton pad and sweep over skin.


SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask (80g/RM94.30)
A gentle peel-off mask that removes dullness and dead skin cells, brightens and hydrates at the same time! Chinese Quince extract inhibits sebum production, while a blend of oriental plant extracts deliver supreme whitening benefits. Nano-sized black powder allows the mask to spread easily.


SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel SPF50+/PA++++ (80g/RM98) and Milk SPF50+/PA++++ (60g/RM105)
With Japan’s highest protection level of SPF50+/PA++++, you can now enjoy ultra-mild sun protection in the form of a gel or a milk. The improved formula contains double the amount of Coix Seed extract, and is enriched with dullness-combatting ingredients like Peony Root Bark and oriental minerals.

The SEKKISEI special edition trial kit is perfect for first-time users who want to feel and see the SEKKISEI difference for themselves!

My Experience


I got to test out the trial kit for almost 3 weeks now. One thing that I absolutely love about the products is the smell. Call me weird or what but I just love the smell. To me, it has similar smell to baby smell. Lol. T-chan said talcum powder. *shifts eye

Love the face wash, thank you for the pump especially! I prefer pumps than tubes, easier to pump than squeeze, all the more on lazy days when I can’t be bothered to wash my face because damn lazy to play squeeze war with the tube. Oh, I do still wash my face clean, top priority when I wear heavier makeup than normal days. If not, well, please let me sleep! Lol.

It comes out in a white liquid and has that baby smell to it. One pump is adequate for the whole face.

Ah another thing to mention about the face wash. After wash, my face feels soft and smooth. Clean, yes. But mostly, other facial wash will make my skin feel squeaky clean, like you just wash those plates type of feeling. Sometimes, that was okay but would rather not, since that stripes off the natural oils on my face as well. Good to know that this face wash didn’t leave that after effect! Instead, smooth, soft AND clean face. Yay!

The lotion is in an almost translucent liquid and absorbs quickly into the skin. I love doing it with the Bihadagoyomi mask as a quick hydration pickup. Lol. Makes my face feel super soft.

 
Bihadagoyomi mask with Lotion

The emulsion is also an almost translucent liquid, with a hint of white. It’s absorbed quickly and no sticky feeling left behind on my face.

Okay, so far, I have done the Basic Care (Wash, Lotion and Emulsion). 


Special Care includes the Bihadagoyomi mask and Clear Whitening Mask. The former uses the lotion while the latter is a peel-off mask.

Ahem, my first peel-off mask, by the way. It was a fun first time experience doing it. Lol.


Apply and spread it all over the face, avoid your eyes, eyebrows, lip area and hairline (as much as possible, I have a fair amount of baby hair so yea, unlucky there but no worries, no permanent damage was done :P).

Then came the peeling!

Not sure why but it was such a satisfying feeling to peel the mask off. And I had a weird reference to dried seaweed while doing it. *no, I did not go and grab a pack of dried seaweed after that. Lol

My face feels so much more babyish-smooth and soft now *proceeds to press cheeks and smirk smugly.

Go try for yourself, like, right now! Okay, kidding. Nope, hit the stores whenever you’re free and get the trial kit, pick your Kimono style or City Chic style, then enjoy your steps to baby smooth skin!
Psst! After using the products, reused the pouch to store your cosmetics. *wink
