A group of bloggers and I got invited to a Kose Beauty Workshop by Nuffnang and Kose! felt very privileged. and smack on the right time too. I delivered RJ only 3 months ago, and my whole body as well as my skin is still at an early recovery phase. I still have uneven skin tone and darker skin from my pregnancy. How did they read my mind? can't thank them enough:) The workshop was only two hours so i also owe my mom a favour for taking care of the kids for me while i attended it so yeay!
KOSÉ Beauty Workshop
The workshop was held at a mexican restaurant in the Gardens, Midvalley. I love the ambience and how the tables were nicely setup specially for the event -Kose products, mirrors, apron, and other beauty gadgets.
We were introduced to the KOSÉ SEKKISEI skincare range, one of KOSÉ's bestselling range. The star of the day was the Sekkisei Lotion.
Let me tell you what's special about the KOSÉ Sekkisei skincare range. It consisted of 3 main ingredients which are oriental plant extracts. These plants are carefully chosen out of 100 other types of oriental plants. I've always believed in traditional ingredients. Oriental plants have medicinal properties that could work wonders, me speaking from a pharmacist point of view, one who works with the traditional medicine division;)
The 3 main ingredients are as such:
1) Coix Seed Extract - increases metabolism, whitens, moisturises and prevents skin roughness.
2) Angelica Extract acts as disinfectant, whitener and moisturiser.
3) Melothria (White Lotus) extract suppresses melanin production.
All in all, with its power ingredients the Sekkisei Lotion promises a fine-textured, hydrated, translucent skin..just like snow.
First, we were given a short talk about skin conditions and how we could work through to get a bright, translucent skin.
Next, we were taught on how to remove makeup the right way, using the KOSÉ Sekkisei Cleansing Cream.
You just need just a cherry sized amount, some massages, then wipe away with wet cotton.tadaa all foundation and makeup washed away in a jiffy.
Then here comes the star of the event, the KOSÉ Sekkisei Lotion Mask.
What I found interesting was this tablet looking thing that I'm holding above is actually a compacted mask. The lotion can be used in 3 steps.
Pour the SEKKISEI Lotion into its cap until it reaches the uppermost line.
Put the mask into the filled cap.
Allow the mask to absorb the lotion till it puffs out of the cap.
Unfold the mask and place onto clean face for 5-10mins.
Remove the mask and tap the excess into skin until all is absorbed. and no rinsing is necessary:) Voila! you've got yourself a fairer, more radiant and translucent skin just like snow. yup yup.
After removing the mask, i do feel more refreshed and the skin on my face does feel smoother and softer. My pimple scars fade a little but still there>.<(still wishing for some kind of miracle product that can take those away in an instant!) but my face does looks a bit fairer than before. that's instant whitening. cools. And I love the scent of this lotion too.
This lotion mask has 9 benefits:

After removing the mask, it's time to apply the KOSÉ Sekkisei Emulsion. This emulsion will lock in and maintain the skin's moisture.
Last step before you're all ready to step out of the house confidently!
Apply the KOSE Sekkisei BB Cream. It comes in 2 shades, 01 (Fair) and 02 (Natural). I used 02.
Here's how I look after application:) Not baad.
After the workshop, we were served with yummy mexican refreshments by the restaurant. Nachos and Quesadillas galore!
