When we’re looking to find healthy alternatives to American foods and lifestyles, we often look east for inspiration. In this case, we’re going way east, as in Japan. If you’ve ever set foot in the Land of the Rising Sun, you know the women care for their skin meticulously. Koh Gen Do cosmetics are produced with the mission to create healthy cosmetics that won’t damage highly sensitive skin. Instead of covering up the problems you have, Koh Gen Do products bring out the beauty that’s waiting to show itself.
Derived from the Yumura Hot Springs in Izumo, Japan, Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water looks more like something you would pour in a hot bath, rather than makeup remover. But once we applied this to our makeup-covered face after day in the city heat, we were instantly refreshed by its cooling components. Unlike most removers, the Cleansing Spa water can be used all over the face, not only on your eyes. But as you’ll realize as you wipe off your eye makeup, the Spa Water doesn’t burn like oil and alcohol-based products. It’s perfect for any woman with sensitive skin who needs to rid her face of the makeup that piles up after a day full of constantly reapplying.
When a woman loads on far too much foundation, everyone that passes in their eye level notices. So what do you do if you need full coverage, but want a light and breathable foundation? Koh Gen Do’s Maifanshi foundation is a mineral-based product that gives a matte finish that’s sheer enough to let skin breathe. The product is so successful, you can see the actors on the hit television show “House M.D.” wearing the makeup on screen. From home to Hollywood, these products are a hit with everyone.
For problem areas that require extra attention, the Maifanshi Moisture Concealer is the perfect cover-up to hide blemishes and dark under-eye circles. The small compact comes with two shades of concealer to ensure blending to match your skin tone, along with a tiny brush and mirror for easy application.
Banish visible pores and uneven skin tone with Koh Gen Do’s Natural Lighting Powder. The perfect post-foundation powder to lightly block shine without getting cakey, the powder is a super-fine shine fighter that makes your skin simply luminescent. If you’re hunting for a little glow without looking radioactive, the Natural Lighting Powder is absolutely for you.
Want a little flush in your cheeks without looking like a Texas pageant queen? Koh Gen Do’s Fresh Face cheek color gives your face a beautiful, rosy glow. We’re major fans of the soft sponge brush that filters in the blush from the makeup compartment below. Ever better, there’s no dirty brushes or loose applicators to misplace.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing like a hot bath or shower to soothe aching muscles. The Oriental Plants soap is a soothing bar to cleanse skin and seduce the senses with its 36 botanical extracts. Hit the sheets at night with fresh skin, thanks to Koh Gen Do’s dedication to soothing skin care and high-quality, botanical ingredients.
