Product Review – Japanese skincare with KOSE and Ichikami

Happy Valentine’s Day peeps! I hope you are all having a love filled day. I have always wanted to try Japanese skincare. It has been high on my beauty/skincare list. So you can imagine how super excited I was to get the opportunity to try a few of them some days ago. M went over to get some work done in Japan, and I had the opportunity to place an order 😊.

I will be reviewing all the Japanese skincare products I got in the next coming weeks. So look out for my review posts. They will be worth it. Here is my first review post.

Ichikami Hair Styling Water £18.68

I am always on the lookout for great hair products to try out. I normally make my own styling water with water and almond oil. But then I found this Ichikami Hair Styling Water, and knew I had to try it.

  1. I am so pleased to hear that both the styling water and the emulsion had no cons to speak of. I have not tried any Japanese skincare products, but if both these products are cruelty free I would definitely try them!

  2. Good to hear that neither product had any side effects or any “cons” – i’d definitely be up for giving them a go, as I have quite a lot of dark skin spots from years travelling to hot countries with minimal sun protection 🙁 x

  3. I’ve never tried any Japanese products, but I really like the sound of these, especially the styling water! I love anything that makes my hair smell nice, especially if it makes my hair easier to manage! Can’t wait to read the rest of your reviews!

  4. I really need to find some new skincare products, my skin is having such a terrible stage at the moment and I’ve had so many breakouts. I’ve never heard of this brand before, so will have to give them a try!

  5. I love that this doesn’t have any cons. It sounds so amazing. I’m investing in skin products this year, big time! My skin is starting to age really quickly and I need to start taking care of it better. I’m definitely going to look into this. x
