One of the things that my skin lack is plumpness (no, I’m not talking about fat. I’ve got plenty of that! haha) and elasticity, which are supposed to be attributes of young, healthy skin. I’m 20 and it scares me a little that my skin is probably much older than I am so I’ve been trying to take care of it more to restore my skin to the best it can be.
One of the most famous all-rounder skincare range for radiant, plump skin is the Kose Sekkisei range. I hear about this everywhere – among the young and the more mature. They have now come up with a Trial Kit, which consists of four products in this range which work together to brighten, hydrate, and plump the skin to restore it’s youth.
STEP 1: Kose Sekkisei White Liquid Wash
The Kose Sekkisei White Liquid Wash is a very gentle wash that rids the skin of impurities, dead skin and excess oil while keeping the skin moisturised. A little bit of this goes a long way as it lathers up into a rich foam because of it’s “milk drop” formula. This product contains oriental herbal extracts like Melothria, Coix Seed, Angelica, Akebia Stem, Rubus Suavissimus, and Scutellaria Baicalensis.
I love this stuff! After a long day, taking off my makeup with this makes my skin feel smooth and fresh. This doesn’t strip my skin of oil and it takes off all traces of excess makeup left on the skin. This also has a mild fragrance that smells nice and fresh.
The Kose Sekkisei Lotion is their most famous product from the entire range and for good reason! This is a lotion that provides moisture and prevents dullness all while making the skin look translucent. Consists of oriental herbal extracts like Coix Seed, Angelica, and Melothria.
STEP 2: Kose Sekkisei Lotion As A Toner/Lotion
Using this with a cotton pad, or just tapped into the skin, it works wonders in cooling down tired skin, and also hydrating dry skin.
STEP 3: Kose Sekkisei Lotion As A Mask
Using the mask capsules that come with the trial kit, drop it into the cap of the Lotion, and pour in the lotion until the mask is completely soaked. Open up the mask, and use it as you would a regular sheet mask!
This is my favourite way of using this product because it really helps my skin calm down after a long, tiring day. It also gives my skin a moisture boost, making it feel plump, hydrated and smooth. After peeling off the sheet mask, my skin is left with a fresh, cooling feeling.
STEP 3: Kose Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask
When I read the name of it, I expected the product to either be a transparent or a white cream but I was surprised to find that it was actually this sheer black-grey colour. Formulated with nano-sized black powder, Red Oolong Tea Extract, and Chinese Quince extract, this product helps to control oil, tighten pores and smoothens skin.
The consistency of this is a liquid gel with a little bit of stickiness. It is very easy to apply all over the face evenly without too much stickiness. After leaving this on for a couple of minutes, all you gotta do is peel it off! I love what this does to my skin! If my skin is feeling quite dull, this is my secret weapon! I apply this, peel it out, and my skin is instantly left looking bright and smooth.
STEP 4: Kose Sekkisei Emulsion
The last step is to add a punch of moisture and lock it all in place! The Sekkisei Emulsion is a lightweight moisturiser that brightens and softens skin. It contains Vitamin C that reduces melanin production, which results in brighter skin.
This is my favourite daily moisturiser! Because it is so lightweight, I love using this in the morning before applying makeup just to get a smooth and hydrated base. This has a milky consistency and feels very lightweight on the skin while still adding tons of moisture into the skin.
The Kose Sekkisei Trial Kit retails for RM99, and comes with:
Sekkisei White Liquid Wash
Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask
3x Mask Capsules
I love how all these products work together to give my skin a radiant glow, while adding moisture into my skin which in return, feels smoother and more plump. If you’re looking for a good all-rounder skincare range, I definitely recommend this one to get your skin to its best condition.
