All these while I’ve been trying different ways to achieve good hair day that can go on for days or able to achieve it every other day. But since now the hair is gone and out of the way, I’ve another concern that has been with me for at least 5 years.
It all started with a simple visit to an acclaimed dermatological clinic. Who knew that they would prescribe me with what would make my face the start of what it has become today.
Just a few days of following what I have to do with the products, my face became so sensitive that whatever products came into contact with my skin, it burns.
Ever since that incident, I have yet to find a cure to it.
I’ve tried drug store products from low to high range, off counter products in dermatological clinic, and not putting anything on my face. Yet the results are still the same. It just keeps going on in a cycle. My face still have acne, acne scars, and most of all, it has turned to sensitive ever since that faithful visit. I have to be extra careful with the products I use and also not to ‘play’ with my face too often.
That being said, I have to spend minimum time and pressure on my face so that it does not over stimulate it.
I dare not try high end products because the 1st thing is the price. I wouldn’t want to buy something that I can barely afford and then to find out that it does not work for me. Though some have very good reviews on them but still, there’s always a chance of it may not work for me.
But, yes… there’s always a ‘but’ in the story. I was given some KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion Mask to try out.
|Before & After|
I would say after the first try, I could see some improvement in my face.
- Overall, slightly fairer complexion
- Less inflammation on my cheeks
- More hydrated skin the next day
I didn’t have to apply anything else after taking off the mask. Just pat dry the essence and that’s it. Save myself from putting extra moisturizer or sleeping mask before I go to bed.
One thing I would like to highlight is the lotion itself does not drip. Unlike other sheet mask that I’ve used before, the essence will drip at the side of my face even when I’m lying down. Wasting of all the essence. But not with KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion Mask. That’s what I like about it.
Now, there’s no way I’ll be simply putting stuff on my face without knowing the ingredients that they use first even though their brand is renowned or there are lots of good review about them. Yes, I’m particular in that way.
So with a little research that I can do, there are 3 main ingredients used. They are of Japanese and Chinese herbal extracts formulations.
1. Coix Seed Extract
It can help increased metabolism, whitening, moisturization and prevention of skin roughness.
2. Angelica Extract aka Dong Guai
It has disinfectant, whitening and moisturizing effects. Well, put this herb in soups are good too. Plus, it is good for women in general. You will need this after your ‘aunty visits’.
3. Melothria (White Lotus) extract
It helps to suppress melanin production has whitening effects on the skin.
From the benefits of the above ingredients, SEKKISEI Lotion main purpose is to brighten and whiten your skin almost instantly. With longer period of usage, certainly it will have more prominent effects. After all, it has deep translucency with the power of oriental plant extracts, even for dull skin. A lotion that creates fine-textured, hydrated “snow-white” skin. It is the best whitening product out there!
Other than whitening, there are also other benefits that you can gain from using this lotion mask, it helps calm skin’s inflammation caused by sun exposure. There’s a total of 9 benefits of lotion mask.
1. Giving your face translucency
2. Better penetration of product to your face
3. Balances skin’s moisture level
4. ‘0’ pores
9. Even skin tone
So what you need to do before putting on the mask is to prep your face. Do your daily cleansing routine; make sure the skin is nice and clean. Remember that patting dry your face with a towel is better than rubbing the towel all over your face.
Step 1: Take the mask out of the packet.
Step 2: Adjust the mask to fit your face and slightly tug it into place.
Step 3: Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes.
Take this time to catch a quick nap. A good 10mins of relaxing is good for the skin too!
Step 4: Remove the mask and tap the excess into the skin until it is absorbed, no rinsing is necessary.
Voila! Skin is now fair, radiant and translucent like SNOW. The lotion leaves the surface of the skin feeling silky smooth, yet hydrated.
It’s kinda hard to resist from touching the face. Did you know that you don’t have to waste the essence in the mask? You can use it on your neck as well! Don’t forget to give some care for the neck. They need the good stuff too. I use it even for my arms and legs. Good moisturizing stuff should be shared among other members of the body.
