For those of you who are familiar with us, you know the beauty standards we live by. First and foremost, we seek high-quality products that deliver results. Brands need to have the science to back up their claims. Next, simplicity rules. Not only should you get the most bang for your buck, but your skincare routine should be sustainable. What’s the point of amazing products if you’re unable to keep up your routine? If you’re in for the long haul, just a few good products should be your best friends. And of course, we’re all about showcasing the rising stars of the J-Beauty world! This means minor yet innovative Japanese beauty brands who find ways to make the most of Japan’s natural resources.
Research, simplify, innovate. Hmm...
And so we thought - how could we best live up to that promise? What’s the best gift we could bring to you this season? So we came up with the J-Beauty Box.
Handpicked Japanese beauty brandsWe spent countless hours scouring Japan to find unique and undiscovered Japanese beauty brands. We’ve handpicked our favorite must-have products for the J-Beauty Box. Many of these are hitting the U.S. shores for the first time, so you won’t find them anywhere else.
Here’s what’s inside:
La Vie Précieuse is a preventative skincare line that fuses cutting-edge science with naturally derived ingredients (namely licorice root, AP ceramide from apples, and proteoglycan from salmon). They even won the 2018 Japan Made Beauty Awards for their innovative use of locally grown Aomori apples. Their Moist A.P.G. Cream is fast-absorbing, locks in moisture and protects the skin. We love how luxurious it feels on the skin, not to mention it looks amazing on a bathroom counter. It’s a great night cream for normal skin types, but can also be used as a day cream for dry, sensitive and mature skin types.
We can’t stop raving about this all-in-one serum that literally… does it all! Not only does it hydrate, firm and brighten the skin, but it helps to accelerate the skin’s natural collagen cycle with collagen-boosting eggshell membranes, vitamin E, and five functional hyaluronic acids. The Hyalo One is oil-free with a gel consistency, yet penetrates deep for plump skin round the clock, making it suitable for any skin type.
3. Juroku Cha
No beauty regime is complete without dietary support! We’re partnering with our friends at Juroku Cha to bring you their natural tea blend of 16 grains and botanicals. Juroku Cha has a crisp, refreshing taste and fragrant aroma reminiscent of the Japanese countryside. It helps to detoxify the body and regulate blood sugar levels post-meal. It is unsweetened, zero calorie and free of caffeine, gluten, fragrance, and artificial colorings.
4. KITAO Trial Sample Pack
Who doesn’t love sample sizes? We’re including an introductory sample pack to the entire KITAO Matcha collection. KITAO is an organic matcha-infused skincare line from Kyoto, that utilizes antioxidant-rich superfoods like chia seed, quinoa and acai to awaken smooth, radiant skin in all skin types. Inside you’ll find samples of their cleansing cream, enzyme powder, essence lotion, and facial cream.
A near $300 value, this assortment is available for $40 on our website only during the month of November. This is an incredible steal - plus we think it’ll make for uh-may-zing holiday gifts to your friends and family.
