Glow from Within with KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit [UNBOXING + REVIEW]

by - March 04, 2016

If I have one confession, then this is it.
I am darn hopeless when it comes to cute and romantic stuff, heart pounding twice as fast on special occasions and love sweet surprises.
Two days before our CNY and Valentine's holiday,  KOSE decided to play the perfect "boyfriend" by delivering a HUGE HUGE surprise parcel and totally swoon me to bits.
That just made every girl's wildest dream come true.

Check out how sweet they are at the video below <3
Thank you so much to The Buttterfly Project for bringing us together and the endless support in cultivating us from mere caterpillars to the butterflies (or moths) we are today <3 

After 2 weeks of ravishing over the KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit ( and obsessively opening and closing the lovely box filled with a helium gas heart shape with pink and white balloons XD), it is time to share my thoughts on this premium beauty kit. KOSE has always walk the talk in bringing ladies moistured, brighter and even skin tone using an oriental formula.
This Trial Kit which I am about to review today consist of KOSE's Top 5 Star products in travel size.(which you can get at only RM99, Saving up to 60%!)

From Left to Right:-

1. Bihadagoyomi Mask x 3pieces
2. SEKKISEI Emulsion (70mls)
3. SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask (10mls)
4. SEKKISEI Lotion (100mls)
5. SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash (20mls)
with an Exclusive Setsuko pouch (kimono/ city chic style)

These popular products contain a trio of oriental plant extracts: Coix Seed, Melothria (White Lotus) and Angelica, which work diligently in keeping our skin in perfect condition, protected from harsh environment. 

STEP 1 : SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash

This liquid wash provides skin a healthy glow and retains moisture. I love how it comes in pump dispenser, which prevents contamination. The smell brings back sweet childhood memory as it smells just like baby body wash.

It does not produce excessive bubbling upon lathering, just sufficient light foam, which simply means it does not strip of moisture off our face. I love how it feels after washing up as it does not cause squeaky clean sensation.

140mls RM131.40


Having said to be KOSE's best selling product, I just can't wait to try it out for myself.
Don't be fooled by the word lotion; it has a fluid like texture for fast absorption.
 The SEKKISEI Lotion serves as a toner; refreshes and enhance skin translucency and clarity.
Smells just like SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash, I was thankful as some toner can come a little strong to the nose but was definitely surprised that it contains alcohol because it stated lotion but doesn't smells like one. Got to admit it brings some stinging sensation which is very mild and fades quickly.

What I noticed was my skin's uneven skin tone and texture has definitely improve and with more refined pores; something that I have to irritatingly deal with > < . It is also said to reduce pigmentation and freckles, enhancing the skin's metabolism to bring an even glow.
Gonna get one for my Ma soon!

How to use:
Just pour some lotion generously onto a cotton pad and gently pat on face
Simply soak a bihadagoyomi mask (thin breathable convenient tablet mask which offers 10x higher moisture!) and place on clean face for 5 to 10 minutes. No rinsing required!

STEP 3 : SEKKISEI Emulsion 

Say hello to the SEKKISEI Emulsion!
Comes in pump dispenser as well, it produce a whitening emulsion, formulated with moisture Balance Polymers that helps the skin's ability in retaining moisture against ambient air.
Contains melanin production inhibitors, which in return prevents freckles, dark spots and dry rough skin caused by harmful UV rays.
It has a slightly thicker texture compared to SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash.
After applying a pump of the lotion to face with the cotton pad, I find it's is slightly oily to touch, although not visible to the eye. Personally, I have combination skin and felt this would do better for people with dry skin type, especially those in middle age onwards.

140mls RM191.80

STEP 4 : SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask

Among all the products, I loved this the most.
Unique on it's own, I was pleasantly surprised in many ways by this small fella.
First, is the color. I have always thought mask is transparent and fluid until I dispense the content.
Thick, black and sticky with touch, I got all excited to see what it can do for me :D

Yup, it does the magic-peel off move too!

I got my mum in laughing fits, which I really don't mind because i love to make her laugh in every ways possible (Another reason to get this!).
 It said to able to remove blackheads, dead skin cells and tighten visible pores.

Just spread across your face, carefully avoiding the eyes, eyebrows hairlines and lips area if you don't want to look like you over-shaved your eyebrows (Just joking!). Wait till it dries before peeling it off  from the outside and Voila!

I didn't notice obvious blackheads or dead skin cells removal as the holding power isn't very strong (I  have always used a stronger nose pack to tackle my black head issues).However, one thing I got to love about this product is the tighten effects! Cried in joy when finally after all these years of pore issues, I finally have a chance to have porcelain skin.

Full size
80mls RM94.30

Overall, I would give a rating of 8/l0 to this KOSE SEKKISEI Trial Kit!
The reason why it's 2 points short wasn't KOSE's issue. Only found the SEKKISEI Emulsion was less useful to me due to my combination skin type but my Ma definitely will benefit from it! I love the rest of the products from this kawaii Trial Kit.

Even with just one time application, you can already see the visible whitening and moistful effect!

SEKKISEI's promise of beautiful, translucent skin is best captured by the image of a dazzling field of fresh snow. It's iconic lazuline bottle was designed to evoke the image of a medicine bottle. Back then, oriental herbal ingredients was rarely used in cosmetic products.

Since its release in 1985, women around the world have been purchasing over 5,000 bottles of SEKKISEI Lotion a day on average. The prestigious awards it has garnered in various beauty magazines around the world attest to its popularity. raved by headlines such as "a beautiful lotion that symbolizes Japan", SEKKISEI is now spreading its wings and soaring towards its goal of becoming the number one whitening brand both in Japan and around the world.
