Product review: Kotoha London

Today I will be writing a review about 3 products by the brand Kotoha London. More about the brand you can find in my post or on their official web site.

Here are the products:

  • SKIN CHERISH LAVENDER CLEANSER
  • SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE MOIST WATER
  • SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE BRIGHTENING SERUM.

Let’s begin!

DESCRIPTION: SKIN CHERISH LAVENDER CLEANSER 85 g. £ 30.00 – Removes make up and dirt with a single application. Its natural ingredients are extremely gentle and do not irritate healthy skin. After use, our cleanser leaves skin feeling radiant and moist.

This product comes in a white plastic tube with a spatula inside. It has a thick, buttery texture. If you do not apply enough water, it can tug the skin, which is never a good thing. At first, I thought that it will be impossible to remove make-up because it spreads so difficult, but when you add a proper amount of water to it, it melts down and removes almost all impurities. It has a faint lavender scent, but not overpowering. Look at the pictures below to see how it removes make-up: eye liner, lipstick and lip liner.
Remark: When it comes to my skincare routine, I ALWAYS use cleansing balms as my 1st cleanse, then followed by a gel based cleanser.

 

DESCRIPTION: SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE MOIST WATER 150 ml £ 28.00 – Recommended for use with Skin Cherish Lavender Cleanser which removes debris, this is a moisturizing water, not a wipe-off toner. Full of the ‘magical’ shoyaku (oriental medicinal herbs) including Ginseng and Peonia Lactifolia KOTOHA’s moisturizing water is highly emollient and rejuvenating.

This toner, actually a moisturizing water as the name says, has a thin and non-sticky texture. It absorbs into the skin fast and it has no scent. I like that it makes my skin soft (as a toner should) and moisturized. It is recommended for use after the Skin Cherish Lavender Cleanser.

Kotoha London: SKIN CHERISH LAVENDER CLEANSER, SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE MOIST WATER SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE BRIGHTENING SERUM

DESCRIPTION: SHOYAKU HERB ESSENCE BRIGHTENING SERUM 115 g £ 35.00 – This serum contains some powerful ingredients. The shoyaku herb mulberry root bark extract was used to treat uneven skin tone and skin pigmentation in the Far East for hundreds of years. Vitamin C – is also highly effective for treating skin pigmentation and freckle. The anti-oxidant moringa makes this serum powerful, yet it is also gentle. It helps skin look bright and clear. Free from fragrance and paraben.

This brightening serum has a milky texture, absorbs into the skin easily and has no particular scent. Because of its lightweight texture, it is perfect to use under the make-up. I have one large pigmentation mark on my cheek, but I haven’t noticed a major difference in its appearance. However, my skin really looks clear and bright.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I have been loving all the above mentioned products. I haven’t had any breakouts and my skin looks radiant. I also like their packaging, made of white plastic, great for travel. The best part is that all of Kotoha London products are completely free of colorant, artificial perfume, paraben, SLS and SLES.

Have you tried any of these or maybe found a product that you might like? I would love to read your comments below. I hope you enjoyed reading this review. Until my next post…

Love,

Marina
