[Beauty Review] KOSÉ SEKKISEI - Glow From Within ❤

Every woman should know that skincare routine is important in their daily life. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural raging process and prevent various skin problems. 

Recently I was introduced to a range of products which promise to give beautiful, translucent skin - KOSÉ SEKKISEI. Most of you would have seen my Instagram profile that I uploaded a photo of their Special Edition Trial Kit recently which has their star products in this special kit.

For over 30 years, KOSÉ SEKKISEI has been restoring translucence to women's skin. Created based on an age-old 'beautiful translucent skin recipe', SEKKISEI's gentle yet effective brightening products are world-famous. Since its launch in 1985, rumours of SEKKISEI's effects have spread through word-of-mouth.

It’s never too early to begin one’s journey towards a beautiful complexion. 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.

KOSE SEKKISEI Special Edition Trial Kit
This year, 5 star products from KOSÉ SEKKISEI come together in its special edition trial kit. 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. 

KOSÉ SEKKISEI Special Edition Trial Kit consists of SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash, SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask, SEKKISEI Lotion and SEKKISEI Emulsion.

KOSE SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash - RM131.40 (140ml)
KOSÉ SEKKISEI White Liquid Wash contains emollient taurine-based cleansing agents that gently cleanse and hydrate the skin. Rubus Suavissimus Extract soothes skin from damage inflicted by UV rays. 


This soft, foamy texture with a relaxing and refreshing scent that feels gentle on my skin.




It also brings out the skin's natural healthy glow and translucency by removing dead skin cells and impurities which cause dullness. It also restores skin to its optimal condition, preparing it for the next step of skincare.

KOSE SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask - RM94.30 (80g)
This SEKKISEI Clear Whitening Mask is one of my favourite product from the SEKKISEI range. It's a gentle peel-off mask that removes dullness and dead skin cells, brightens and hydrates at the same time.


The Chinese Quince extract inhibits sebum production, while a blend of oriental plant extracts deliver supreme whitening benefits.


This nano-sized black powder allows the mask to spread easily. However be sure to spread the mask on one specific area as it tends to dry easily. Remember not to apply on eyebrow, hairlines and lips area.


I like how it can be peeled off and this will save the time on washing my face as compared to those clay mask. 

KOSE SEKKISEI Lotion - RM180.20 (200ml), RM275.60 (360ml)
Apart from the Clear Whitening Mask, KOSÉ SEKKISEI Lotion is one of my favourite too. This lotion helps to improve skin's texture, reduces pigmentation, freckles and refines pore troubles. The watery texture  of the lotion gives a cooling and refreshing sensation. 



This lotion is rather unique. You can soak the Bihadagoyomi mask with SEKKISEI lotion and place onto clean face for 5 to 10 minutes. This works as a hydration mask which gives moisture to my dry face. 

It also penetrates deeply into skin and enhances skin's metabolism to prevent dullness. This lotion instantly brightens my skin tone, creating an even glow. 


I noticed the significant results of percentage of moisture after using the mask. It provides 10x higher moisture that instantly brightens and rejuvenates skin. 

KOSE SEKKISEI Emulsion - RM191.80 (140ml)
KOSÉ SEKKISEI Emulsion is formulated with Moisture Balance Polymers to maintain the skin's moisture-retaining balance against ambient air. It inhibits melanin production and prevents freckles, dark spots and dry rough skin caused by UV rays. 


Best of all, it gives long-lasting hydration for the skin. I like that it does not feel sticky on the skin after applying. 


From the photo above, you are able to see that the percentage moisture has increased after applying emulsion. I noticed that my skin is more supple and softer after applying the emulsion too. 

The SEKKISEI special edition trial kit is perfect for first-time users who want to feel and see the SEKKISEI difference for themselves! The SEKKISEI trial kit is priced at RM99 inclusive of GST and includes the following:
