From Japan Crate comes Kira Kira Crate, a box dedicated to Japanese beauty! Kira Kira means “to sparkle” and with this box full of makeup, skincare, and other tools from Japan, you will sparkle as well!
DEAL: Save $3 on your first box! Use coupon code HELLO.
The booklet included with the box has a brief welcome letter, a list of the products included, and additional pages give English instructions for each product.
Heart Konjac Sponge — The first item we received is a cute heart shaped konjac sponge! Konjac is an Asian root that is ground up into a powder and then pressed into shapes like this sponge. When it absorbs water, it expands and turns into an almost jelly-like squishiness that naturally exfoliates skin. I really like these!
Hanamaru Eye Cream — With rosewater as one of its ingredients, this is a gel eye cream to gently hydrate the delicate under eye area.
Pure Smile Kabuki Sheet Masks — Kabuki is a style of Japanese theater that features elaborate makeup on the actors. This mask lets you look like a kabuki actor. Perfect for Halloween!
Acne Bath Soak — This is an herbal bath soak with ingredients meant to soothe troubled skin. We focus on acne on our faces so much sometimes we forget we can get it elsewhere. I have some bacne left over from massage therapy this summer (massage oil can clog your pores) so this bath soak might offer some relief.
Medicated Acne Face Foam — And to pair with our acne bath soak is a face foam that will pair well with our new konjac sponge.
Kira Kira Crate brought some nice items this month. I do wish they would include an English list of ingredients, especially for the acne products as it would be good to know what ingredients will benefit the skin.
