I am a little bit obsessed with anything Japanese when it comes to skin care, as I know how seriously they take their cleaning routines. Washing can be something close to a religious experience for some Japanese and there is much importance placed on being and smelling clean.
I was given a selection of the Japanese brand Sai-Sei range to trial and I am really impressed with it. In true Japanese style it is very discrete with its impact, it comes in pale pistachio green and white packaging and it smells low-key-fabulously clean. Very slightly green tea/apple-ish. it performs beautifully without any song and dance -the gentle botanic Konnyaku sponge is the only sponge I want near me from now on- and is quietly addictive. Ideal as a gift for those tired of smelling like a fruit bowl or flower shop, I’d recommend the Mineral Deep Moisture Body Cream and the not-too-harsh Mineral Body Scrub . And the sponge (it dries rock solid after every wash, so doesn’t go all gooey inside)
