These products were produced in 2013 or 2014 and they have three years of shelf life. Since the expiry date is presented in the format of Minguo Calender so you will see either "103" or "102" as the first three digits of expiry date printed on packaging.
If you prefer products produced in 2014, we can select the freshest one when the order is packed.
For the detail of the expiry date of SK-II, please refer the bottom of below product page:
Thanks for your kind attention.
It is not normal. It seems that your skin is too dry and become sensitive after using whitening products. Please stop using Whitening Source Clear Lotion to see if the problem is improved. If not, you might want to use a hydrating essence and moisturizer with soothing result to calm your skin before going back to your daily skincare routine.
Kao Curel, Rohto Hada Labo, Juju Aqua Moist and Innisfree Green Tea Series are good for calming and soothing. You might want to use soothing face masks, like the one from Rohto Hada Labo, Juju or It's Skin Prestige Mask D'escargot to re-hydrate and reduce redness of your skin.
Dear Maren Springsteen,
The one we have is the latest version and the packaging is slightly different from the website (with pastel circles on the jar).
We are sorry for the confusion and the image on the content page will be updated shortly.
This one is in creamy texture which acts as moisturizing foundation with lighter coverage, while Ettusais BB Mineral Liquid is in watery texture which creates matte finish so it is more suitable for oily and acne prone skin.
Dear Rostiena Safie,
SK-II Signs Signature is discontinued so you can try sample of SK-II Stempower Eye Cream before buying a full size product. Apart from SK-II Stempower Eye Cream, you can try SK-II Signs Eye Mask which targets under eye areas, or Taiwanese brands, Dr Morita Syn-Ake Essence Eye Mask which helps to firm eye lids and under eye areas. Here are the details:
SK-II Eye Care Series:
Dr Morita Syn-Ake Essence Eye Mask:
Sofina has re-launched its' Beaute Series. Instead of type I-III (toner) and type I-IV (moisturizer), Sofina only offers two versions, Fresh and Moist, for hydrating and whitening series.
If you have dry skin and used to apply type III, I would recommend Sofina Beaute Whitening Cream (40g) (IV - Nighttime Moisturizer) or Sofina Beaute Deep Moisture Cream (50g) (for dry skin) as listed below as the "fresh" type might be too light for you:
For other nighttime moisturizers from Sofina, the stock will be ready in 10-14 business days.
Thanks for your kind attention. We look forward to serving you shortly.
Dear Jessie Wong,
The product was produced in 2013 August (presented in Minguo Calender 102.08 on the packaging) and it won't be expired till 2016 August.
SK-II Stempower Moisturizer is designed for all skin types. This cream re-hydrates and promotes anti-aging result to your skin but if you worry the texture of the cream, I would recommend you to use it at NIGHT after SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence.
I've never tried SK-II Men Facial Treatment Essence but if you want to use it, please apply to your t-zone as I believe most products designed for men is less hydrating and more powerful in terms of refining pores and smoothing out rough skin.
The date that you see in product description is just an example to show how to read the label. Since the mask was imported only 2-3 months ago so they were produced in 2014 or 2015 and it has three years of shelf life.
We will amend the product description shortly to minimize confusion.
Thanks for your business and we look forward to serving you again shortly.

Should you have further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us and we look forward to serving you again shortly.
Albion is owned by Kose so it is better to use with Kose Sekkisei or Kose Supreme Sekkisei for a complete skin care regimen.
If you want to use it with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, the steps are suggested as follow:
Cleanser > Toner > Facial Treatment Essence > Moisturizer > Albion Conditioner > Essence (use a cotton pad to saturate the conditioner. Pat your face gently with the cotton pad)
The skin care regimen of Albion is different from other brands. The conditioner is used after moisturizer. Then, use a lightweight sunscreen (daytime) or face essence (nighttime) as the last step of your skin care protection.
If you think it is too much for your skin, skip the essence and move Albion Conditioner before sunscreen or moisturizer.
Yes. It does. It is better to use this lotion with cotton pad after washing to remove dead skin cells for brightening result. At the same time, a good sunscreen, such as Kose Medicated Sekkisei Essence Milk and Shiseido Anessa Perfect Essence Sunscreen, should be applied in daytime to prevent pigmentation and aging caused by excessive sun exposure.
Have you tried SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after using Facial Treatment Clear Lotion? This product is not designed for sensitive skin though so I would recommend a sample size for your to try.
If your skin condition is improved and no negative reaction after using Facial Treatment Essence, you can use SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Solution as daytime moisturizer which is designed for normal to oily skin for re-hydrating and regulating sebum production. Then, use a sunscreen, such as SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) to protect your skin from sun exposure.
We will have some in 5-7 business days. We will inform you once it is available.
Do you see any change after using HAKU? My friend and I got sun burn and dark spots too but after using it for 2-3 weeks, our complexions are better and dark spots are less obvious.
If your dark spot is improved but the skin becomes dry after using HAKU, I will recommend you to use HAKU continuously with Shiseido Elixir Whitening Series (type II for normal to dry skin) instead of SK-II. HAKU is manufactured by Shiseido which should help to improve your skin problem over all.
If HAKU and SK-II do not work, I think you might want to seek professional advice on laser treatment as these two series are the most effective whitening products that we carry. Hormone plays a major role too but skin care product does not work on this aspect.
There are a lot of possibilities so my honest advice is, try to skip one or two products to see if the condition is changed. You can also try SK-II samples and Shiseido Elixir Travel Set before shelling out a fortune to get actual size products. After all, we don't want you to spend a fortune to get what you don't need.
The lotion that we provide do have a pump. Since we use white background for photo shooting so the pump is not shown in the picture. We will change the picture shortly.
The production date of the item is Nov 2014 so it won't be expired till Nov 2017.
Thanks! Have a great day!
This product is made in Japan. Thanks!
We have three options for US domestic customers. Please refer below web page for detail.
I have checked online information which suggests that breakout might be caused by unbalanced skin condition instead of allergy. If your skin surface is too dry, which will give a wrong signal to natural skin defensive system to produce more sebum to protect the skin. In the end, dirt and sebum combined which block the pores and cause breakout.
If you wear makeup or sunscreen, please use makeup remover or cleansing oil to remove them at night. Then, use a gentle face cleanser, such as Juju Aqua Moist or Kao Curel to clean your face. After that, use Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion (saturate a cotton pad and gently wipe your face. You can put some in palm and pat your face to encourage penetration as well), Medicated Recovery Essence Excellent and Medicated Sekkisei Emulsion to protect and re-hydrate your skin.
If you have other essence on hand, you can use it after Sekkisei Lotion to see if it helps.
This essence helps you to brighten dull skin tone and improve the problem of pigmentation. However, it cannot remove brown spots completely. You might want to seek out professional advice on peeling or laser skin treatment as most of the whitening skin care products working on the skin surface only.
Dear Vivienne,Shiseido Elixir Whitening Protector SPF50 is in liquid texture which gives you light and non greasy finish. This product is supposed to be used after applying Emulsion as the last step of skin care regimen.
The expiry date of Facial Treatment Essence 215ml is 2016 or after. You will see the date printed on the package (in Minguo format) so for example, if you see 10310 as the expiry date, it means the product was produced in 2014 Oct and it has three years of shelf life.
Yes. It is in glass bottle.
It is 90g. It is used to be 60ml and 25ml but they are no longer available.
We are sorry for the confusion.
This gel can be used day and night. Thanks!
You might want to change Stempower Moisturizer to Stempower Rich Moisturizer. Alternatively, use Stempower Essence before Repair C. Stempower Essence is for re-hydrating, improving large pores problem caused by aging and environmental changes, while Repair C, an oil free serum, promoting soothing result for fine lines and rough skin texture.
Meanwhile, you might want to use Facial Treatment Mask 2-3 times a week to improve dryness and dull skin complexion.
SK-II Signs Up Lifter is an essence which should be used after Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence (essence for smoother and refined skin) for anti-aging and firming results.
SK-II Facial Lift Emulsion is a face moisturizer that is used after Signs Up Lifter. However, if you have very dry skin, and mature skin problem is your main concern, I would like to suggest SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Essence, SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Serum and SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Cream instead. You can refer below web page for detail:
Here is our suggested skin care regimen:
1) Shiseido Elixir Whitening Clear Lotion II is used as toner;
2) Shiseido HAKU Whitening Essence is used on affected area or whole face;
3) Shiseido Elixir White Day Care Revolution II SPF50 PA+++ in daytime. This day care emulsion combines functions of sunscreen and moisturizer so you can use it after HAKU essence.4) Shiseido Elixir Whitening Emulsion is used as nighttime moisturizer. If you do not have Shiseido Elixir White Day Care Revolution II, you can use this moisturizer in daytime but apply sunscreen, such as Shiseido Elixir Whitening Protector SPF50 PA+++, to prevent skin from sun damages.
You can use Elixir Whitening and HAKU in daytime as they do not contain Vitamin A or other bleaching agents so they are safe to use. That being said, sunscreen should always be applied in daytime to protect your skin and prevent premature skin aging.Best Regards,BeautyKat Teamhttp://BeautyKat.com
I would like to suggest below items for your consideration:
1) SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser;
2) SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion which is used as toner to minimize dead skin cells;
3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which smooths rough skin texture and encourages cells turnover;
4) SK-II Stempower Essence provides anti-aging and hydrating results;
5) SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 can be used as daytime moisturizer and sunscreen;
6)SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge is nighttime moisturize for oily and combination skin to improve dull skin complexion
Sorry for my late reply. SK-II is not designed for sensitive skin so you might want to try something which contains Aloe Vera, Chamomile or Snail Secretion for re-hydration and improving damaged skin.
I will give you more information tomorrow.
Thanks for your patience and support to us.
Yes. They are in beige color. Please see below web page for detail:
Yes, we have as listed on below web page:
Please use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence then SK-II Treatment Repair C.
Kose Medicated Junkisui Washing Cream is available in Japan, Hong Kong and some selective Asian countries. Due to different marketing concerns and regulations, Kose has two versions of Junkisui available worldwide but in terms of formulation, I don't see much difference between medicated and non medicated.
That being said, our customers, most of them are Asian, prefer medicated as they use this version back to Asia, so we only stock medicated to cater their needs.
Do you mean the hair is still falling after application of Yanagiya? Please make sure your hair is towel dry and no excess moisture. Then, apply Yanagiya to your scalp, gently massage till it is absorbed and no need to rinse it off.
I believe your hair is too weak so it is easy to fall. Try to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, such as Komenuka Bijin Shampoo and Conditioner, to protect, nourish and smooth out your hair. Meanwhile, take daily supplement, such as Vitamin E or fish oil, to maintain the healthiness of your hair.
For the detail of Komenuka Bijin hair items, please refer below web page:
Medicated Sekkisei is available in various Asia markets including Japan, while non medicated version is offered in US and China. As far as I know, the ingredients are not much different but Kose offers two versions anyway to cater custom requirements of different countries.
Having said that, our customers prefer Medicated so we only stock in this version unless only non medicated is available.
SK-II Whitening Spots Care & Brighten Day Cream is different from Dark Spot Concentrate.
Care and Brighten Day Cream is used in daytime to provide whitening, nourishing and protecting results, while Dark Spot Concentrate is a nighttime treatment which is used temporarily.Whitening Spots Care & Brighten Day Cream helps to whiten and even out dull skin tone, and the product should be used after SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist and before SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion in order to enhance whitening effect.If you want to change other whitening products, may we suggest Shiseido HAKU CR Whitening Essence. We have received positive feedback from our customers who claim that the pigmentation is fading if the product is used over time.Best Regards,BeautyKat Teamhttp://BeautyKat.com
Please don't layer Stempower Moisturizer and Melting Rich Cream. If you want to re-hydrate your skin, please use Stempower Essence after Facial Treatment Essence but before moisturizer for anti-aging and re-hydrating results.
SK-II Melting Rich Cream is designed for dry and very dry skin types. If you have combination or oily skin, Melting Rich Cream is not suitable for you.
If you still want to use it in low humidity season, please use it at night after Facial Treatment Essence and again, no need to layer Stempower Moisturizer.
Meanwhile, please saturate a cotton pad with Clear Lotion (toner) and gently wipe your face day and night. It will help to remove excess sebum and dead skin cells.
Here is my suggestion:
2) SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion
3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
4) SK-II Stempower Essence (optional)
5) SK-II Stempower Moisturizer (use Melting Rich Cream at night if it is needed. No need to use Stempower Moisturizer nor UV Protection)
6) SK-II Facial Treatment UV Protection (daytime only)
We would like to recommend SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, SK-II Stempower Eye Cream and SK-II Stempower Moisturizer.SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is SK-II hero product which helps to promote skin cells turnover for smoother and refined skin texture. Product is listed as below:http://www.beautykat.com/p451/SK-II-Facial-Treatment-Essence-%2830ml%29/product_info.htmlSK-II Stempower Eye Cream helps to moisturize and firm eye areas for anti-aging result. Since the texture of this product is rich and creamy so a little goes a long way.http://www.beautykat.com/p2221/SK-II-Stempower-Eye-Cream-Sample-%282.5g%29/product_info.htmlSK-II Stempower Moisturizer prevents dryness and sagging skin caused by natural aging process. This product can be penetrated into the skin easily so it will not create a greasy layer on the skin.http://www.beautykat.com/p1818/SK-II-Stempower-Moisturizer-%2815g%29/product_info.html
Dear Jes Jones,
This skin care product works on skin surface for improving dark spots and pigmentation. Hence, I believe you can use it during breastfeeding.
You don't have to rinse your face after using the mask. Just simply massage the remaining essence till it is absorbed, following with a face emulsion or face cream to lock in the moisture will be fine.
Since the one you bought is a sample so there is no seal attached to the bottle. We only stock authentic products from reputable suppliers who have been working with us for several years so I can ensure you that our products are original and authentic.
If your see the benefit after using SK-II, I think you should keep using it but bear in mind to apply essence (rehydrate skin to prevent dryness and redness), moisturizer (lock in the nature moisture of your skin) and sunscreen (protect your skin from UVA/UVB) after using Facial Treatment Essence.
In Winter or low humidity weather, use face mask to replenish and rejuvenate dry and tired look skin. As such, I don't see if you would have large pores or redness problem as the salesperson said.
One of the reasons for having large pores and redness is dehydrated skin and aging. If your skin is well hydrated and protected, skin texture will be improved over time.
As mentioned in previous message, use an essence, such as SK-II Stempower Essence (50ml), and a moisturizer, like SK-II Stempower Moisturizer (80g) in daytime or SK-II Skin Refining Treatment (50g) at night, to re-hydrate and protect your skin which will improve redness and large pores problem.
For acne problem, try Ettusais Clear Spots Superior (15g) in affected areas. This product is quite gentle which can be used with other skin care items.
Kose Seikisho is for cleansing purpose but some items will be discontinued once they are sold out. Kose Medicated Junkisui is designed for oily and acne prone skin which is able to improve acne skin problem.
Since you have sensitive skin, I would like to recommend Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion which acts as whitening toner to improve acne pigmentation and reduce accumulation of dead skin cells. You can also consider Kose Medicated Junkisui Lotion to improve oily skin problem but some of our customers prefer Sekkisei Lotion as it will not dry out skin surface while enhancing skin complexion as a whole.
After using Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion, you can use Kose Medicated Junkisui Emulsion to protect and re-hydrate your skin. This emulsion is designed for oily, acne prone skin and its' texture is lighter than Kose Medicated Sekkisei Emulsion so it is more suitable for your skin type.
Since you have sensitive skin, I would like to recommend Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion which acts as whitening toner to improve acne pigmentation and reduce accumulation of dead skin cells. This toner is relatively milder than SK-II treatment essence so I believe you can use it day and night.
After using Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion, you can use Kose Medicated Junkisui Emulsion to protect and re-hydrate your skin. This emulsion is designed for oily, acne prone skin and its' texture is lighter than Kose Medicated Sekkisei Emulsion so it is more suitable for your skin type.
We have refunded to you already. Please place a new order for the titled items.
This product should be used right after cleansing, toning and Facial Treatment Essence. You might want to use SK-II Stempower Essence or SK-II Cellumination Aura Essence after Facial Treatment Essence to provide anti-aging, hydrating and brightening results to your skin.These essences are in light texture and molecules are tiny enough which can be penetrated into the skin for better skin care results. After using essence, you can use SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 to seal in and protect your skin from environmental damages.If you do not want to try essences for now, you can layer the moisturizer under this extreme and dry weather but as mentioned previously, I prefer essences rather than having two moisturizers on acne prone skin.Best Regards,
No. You don't need to. Just massage it till it is absorbed.
The shade is the same but the texture is different. True Liquid Moisture Foundation is a bit heavier so it offers better coverage. If you want to try UV White Powder Foundation, we still have few pieces available:
Thanks for your kind attention.
Unfortunately, it doesn't.
The coverage of these foundations is about the same but the texture of True Liquid Moisture is thicker which is suitable for normal to dry or dry skin, and great to use in Winter.

For your cheek areas, I will suggest Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion which helps to clear congested pores, brightening and softening your skin. Put it in the fridge for cooling and refreshing result which helps to calm the problem of Rosacea.Having said that, if Rosacea is caused by skin sensitivity, I would suggest something more gentle for your consideration. Try Nature Republic Sooth & Moisture Aloe Vera 90 percentage Toner or Kao Curel Whitening Moisture Lotion III (face toner) (enrich - dry skin) (140ml) to smooth, calm and rehydrate your cheek areas. Then, use a hydrating moisturizer, such as Kao Curel Whitening Moisture Cream (dry skin) or Kao Curel Moisture Face Milk (combo skin) for moisturizing and protecting. For the rest of your face, you can try Sulwhasoo or The History of Whoo which give you anti-aging and firming results.

This product can be used day and night after toning. If you use it in daytime, it is better to apply sunscreen as the last step of skin care regimen to protect your skin from the damage of UVA and UVB.
This product is designed for oily and acne prone skin. It is good for teenager who has oily skin problem as the product helps to control sebum production and refresh skin for smooth result.
Unfortunately, we do not have this sample available but we have asked our supplier for the availability of other samples. Will get back to you once we have further information.
We are sorry to inform you that we do not offer pick up or same day delivery service. We only have Next Day Delivery, 2-3 days and 5-7 days delivery for you to choose from.
Sorry about that.
Sure. You can use it in the morning but it is better for you to use sunscreen afterwards to protect your skin from UVA/UVB.
The date you see on the packaging is manufacturing date so it is good to use for three years.
SK-II Cellumination Aura Essence is a new version of Cellumination EX. We only have 30ml of Cellumination EX but once it is sold out, we will launch SK-II Cellumination Aura Essence for 30ml as well.Thanks!BeautyKat Team
Yes, you can. But this essence is not for moisturizing purpose. If your skin is dry around your eye areas, it might not help.
As stated on product page, you can use this mask after cleansing and toning. Put the mask on your face for 10 -15 minutes. Remove the mask but no need to rinse off. Massage gently until the remaining essence is absorbed, following with a moisturizer to seal in the moisture of your skin. Use this mask 1 - 2 times a week.Thanks!Best Regards,BeautyKat Team
I would like to suggest Shiseido Elixir Whitening Series and Kose Medicated Sekkisei Series for your consideration. Here are my suggested skin care regimens:
1) Shiseido Elixir Purify Cleansing Foam (145g) (face cleanser - for all skin)
2) Shiseido Elixir Whitening Clear Lotion II (170ml) (toner - for normal & dry skin)
3) Shiseido HAKU CR Melanofocus Whitening Essence (20g) - this essence can be used on affected area or whole face for whitening and brightening.
4) Shiseido Elixir White Reset Brightenist (40g) (nighttime moisturizer - for all skin) - can also be used in day time if you have very dry skin.
5) Shiseido Elixir White Day Care Revolution II SPF50 PA+++ (35ml) - this is a 2-in-1 moisturizer which also provides you sunscreen protection. Use it right after toner or White Reset Brightenist if you have very dry skin.
For Kose Sekkisei Series, I would like to suggest below items:
1) Kose Sekkisei White Milky Wash (140ml)
2) Kose Medicated Sekkisei Whitening Lotion (200ml) or Kose Medicated Sekkisei Whitening Lotion Excellent (200ml)
3) Kose Medicated Sekkisei Recovery Essence Excellent (50ml)

We will offer final sale discount for soon to be expired item and an expiry date will also be listed on product page too.
Instead of skin tone, please tell me your skin type and skin concern (anti-aging. large pores etc) so that I can suggest some items for your trial.
Dear Trang Le,
Both series are developed and manufactured by Shiseido so I will say the effectiveness of these series is similar. However, our customers prefer Shiseido Elixir Whitening as it comes with various items that White Lucent doesn't have.
I don't think there will be a problem for you to keep using Elixir Whitening Clear Lotion. In fact, acne can be caused by hormones or environment changes.
If you have oily skin and want to remove dead skin cells for preventing acne, I will suggest Kose Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask which helps you to improve problems of excess sebum, blackheads and large pores. Here is product detail for your reference:
Yes, you can. But it is better for you to use sunscreen afterwards. Try Shiseido Elixir Whitening Protector SPF50 as listed below:
If you want to find a sunscreen with moisturizing benefit, you can use Elixir White Day Care Revolution I (for oily and combo skin) or II (for dry and normal to dry skin). You can use this product right after toning as it can hydrate and protect your skin from UVA/UVB.
Since this sunscreen is not waterproof so use a daily cleanser to clean the sunscreen will be fine.
SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge is a moisturizer which brightens, softens and protects the natural moisture of the skin from being evaporated, while Cellumination Essence is a brightening skin care essence which is in gel-watery texture for easy penetration in order to achieve brightening and light moisturizing result.
You can use Cellumination Deep Surge in the morning but it's better for you to apply sunscreen afterwards. Try SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 or SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion (SPF50) PA+++.
I will say Facial Treatment Cleanser, Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Essence, Stempower Moisturizer or Whitening Source Derm Brighterner, UV Lotion and Skin Treatment Foundation.
It will not change your nature skin tone but definitely brighten your skin and make it more transparent. You can use it on affected area but not the whole face if you really want to maintain the tan look.
Shiseido Maquillage True Liquid Moisture is designed for Autumn/Winter or normal to dry and dry skin, while Shiseido Maquillage True Liquid Long Keep is designed for Spring/Summer or normal to oily and oily skin. True Liquid Long Keep has better sebum control and sweat resistant function that prevent the makeup from smudging.
It is good for normal to dry and dry skin but if you use it in Winter, a moisturizer should be used before BB cream.
01 - Light Shade is suitable for fair skin with yellowish undertone.
No, it won't.
Yes, we have product produced in 2013 and won't be expired till 2018. Thanks!
Dear Cecile Palmer,
It will take 10-14 business days for delivery.
If you do not have sensitive skin, I would like to recommend Kose Medicated Junkisui Series which is suitable for oily and acne prone skin. Here is product detail for your reference:
Sofina UV White Protect SPF50 offers waterproof and whitening function without creating a greasy and white layer on the skin so it's good for your skin type and suitable for outdoor activities. If you want to find a sunscreen which can be used as a moisturizer and sun protector, try Sofina Beaute Whitening Day Protector SPF50+ PA+++ (Fresh - 32ml) which is temporarily out of stock but will be available shortly.Best Regards,BeautyKat Teamhttp://BeautyKat.com
This is non medicated version. In fact, I don't think you can find any Medicated Eye Cream in the market.
Ettusais BB Mineral Cream is a basis BB cream which moisturizes, protects, conceals pores and even out skin tone, while Ettusais BB Mineral White Cream offers whitening function to improve skin complexion.
This HAKU is Japanese version which is produced in Japan by Shiseido. There is no expiry date printed on the bottle but we imported it just about three months ago and the shelf life of Shiseido is 3-5 years.

The texture of this BB Cream is in milky lotion which lighter than regular Korean BB cream. The coverage is medium and also lighter than Korean brand. If you want to have natural coverage and find a BB cream that is for Summer, Ettusais BB cream is your choice.
Dear Khanh Pham,
Kose Medicated Junkisui is designed for oily and acne prone skin and you will see improvement by using this series over time. However, it is not for whitening and cannot improve "bruise" (do you mean pigmentation or birthmark?) for which you might want to seek professional advice.
The ingredient list is in Japanese and the item is currently out of stock. We believe a new packaging will be launched shortly.
My supplier told me that the packaging of this sunscreen will be changed so it takes some time to order this product overseas. Having said that, it should be available shortly.
SK-II Cellumination Moisture Surge Day SPF 30 is for brightening which should be used with Cellumination Series, while Whitening Source Derm Definition UV provides you sun protection and whitening results, and its' texture is a bit heavier than Cellumination Moisture Surge.
Yes, it is. But this item is temporarily out of stock and we are not sure when the production will be resumed.
We have Sofina Jenne Whitening UV Sunscreen instead which costs less than Jenne Day Protector. Please see below webpage for detail:
Please add the item into shopping cart and checkout as usual. For international order, we offer flat rate shipping which means that no matter how much you spend on the purchase, the shipping rate will be the same. Please see our shipping detail on below webpage:
Our products are in US retail price. Once the payment is made, you should able to see the total US cost and conversion rate on your credit card statement.
Thanks for your kind attention. We look forward to serving you shortly.
Sorry, we do not have this product.

This sunscreen is transparent and it won't create a white layer after application. Having said that, the main ingredients of this sunscreen are Zinc Oxide (13.00%), Ethlhexyl Methoxycinnamate (4.00%) and Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate (0.5%) and the product is designed for oily and combination skin.
Dear Yuki Hasebe,
The volume of this sunscreen is 90g which is a special size product produced in limited time and qty. In fact, we only have one piece left and we are not sure if we can order 90g in near future.
Yes, this product is made in Japan.
This liquid foundation contains Titanium Dioxide as mineral UVA/UVB blocker.
Dear Doreann Gibson,
We only got the product with eyeliner for now but we will talk to our supplier for the availability of eyeliner.
If you confirm to buy at least 5 pieces, we can offer $17.88 each. What do you think?
We don't have a specific mask for sensitive skin but if your sensitivity is caused by dehydrated and damaged skin problems, you might want to try It's Skin Prestige Mask D'escargot (5pcs), Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Hydro-gel Mask (1 sheet), My Beauty Diary Aloe Mask or Apivita Express Beauty Intensive Hydration Mask w/Aloe. These masks contain intensive hydrating ingredients for improving dryness and damaged skin problem. They will definitely help you to lessen skin sensitivity if the problem is caused by weather or skin dryness.
Here are product URLs for your reference.

We are still waiting for the shipment of Laneige as most items are out of stock. Meanwhile, it takes a while for us to import the product from Asia so we can't confirm the arrival of next shipment.
This is Ettusais White UV EX SPF24 (Dry Block) which is designed for dry skin but also suffered from acne problem. Here are the actual and sample sizes of this item:
Dear Milena Nishimura,
We are located in US and yes, we send order to Brazil which will take 2-3 weeks for delivery. Here is the detail of our international shipping policy:
Dear Margalie Regis,
I am sorry to inform you that this sample set is in back-ordered as SK-II will launch a new packaging for this Whitening Cream. Having said that, you can still try SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist (50ml) (Brightening & Improving Dark Spots) (all skin types) or Shiseido HAKU CR Melanofocus Whitening Essence (20g). These items are our best selling whitening serums which are effective for pigmentation caused by sun exposure.
After using whitening serum, you can use SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) in daytime and SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge (50g) at night if you choose SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist. Otherwise, use Shiseido Elixir Whitening Emulsion after Shiseido HAKU CR Whitening Essence.
Thanks for your kind attention. We look forward to serving you again shortly.
I will say you can but it is better for you to stick with a single line, unless you use, for example, cleanser from The History of Whoo and others are from Sulwhasoo and I won't see it will be a problem.
The expiry date of Fancl Washing Powder is July 2014 or after. Thanks!
There is no warning message regarding the usage instruction for pregnancy. However, I will recommend to use it after giving birth. Just to play safe.
Kose Medicated Junkisui Washing Cream is suitable for oily and acne prone skin. You can use this cleansing foam, Junkisui Lotion (used as toner) and Emulsion to improve your skin problem. But speaking about early signs of aging and large pores problem, I will suggest SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is used after Lotion and before moisturizer. You can buy a sample size to see if it is suitable for you.
I have large pores problem as well and I see my skin texture and pores are refined after using the essence for 2 weeks. Although the visible result may varied, I still suggest you to try SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is one of our best selling items at all time.
The moisturizing mask from FANCL is one of our best selling FANCL items which promotes intensive hydrating and softening results to your skin. Once the skin dryness is relieved, it will improve skin sensitivity.
Since FANCL has only one year of shelf life so we select our product carefully. If you want to have other FANCL items that are not available on our website, please inform us and we can make a special order for you.
I would like to recommend Ettusais Whitening Series which is for brightening and improving problem of acne prone skin. To prevent skin dryness, you can use Ettusais AC-Skincare Skin Version Up Extra (Pre-toning Essence - 100ml) after cleansing. Then, use Ettusais AC-Skincare Skin Version Up Extra (Pre-toning Essence - 100ml), Ettusais Medicated Acne Whitening Essence (for whole face - 40ml), and Ettusais White UV EX SPF24 PA++ (40ml) for improving dull and oily skin problems.
But for eczema around your lip areas, I would suggest Kao Curel Moisture Lip Care Cream (4.2g) which is designed for sensitive and dry skin. It might not heal eczema but it will relieve dryness around lip areas with minimum irritation.
Dear Monika P,
This special set will not be available but we might have another offer in April/May. You might want to try this special set as listed below:
If you purchase $159 or more including the above set, you can receive a handbag and Shiseido Elixir Travel Kit.
Meanwhile, you can consider following special set for a bigger size of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence:
I would like to recommend Ettusais Whitening Series which is for brightening and acne prone skin. To prevent skin dryness, you can use Ettusais AC-Skincare Skin Version Up Extra (Pre-toning Essence - 100ml) after cleansing. Then, use Ettusais AC-Skincare Skin Version Up Extra (Pre-toning Essence - 100ml), Ettusais Medicated Acne Whitening Essence (for whole face - 40ml), and Ettusais White UV EX SPF24 PA++ (40ml) for improving skin problems.
You can also use Ettusais Medicated Acne Emollient Supplizer (29g) which is used after moisturizer. Use the spatula to pick up a pearl size amount of product and apply over your entire face or on areas of extreme dryness.
For Collagen Drink, it helps you to refine pores, promotes healthiness and radiant complexion of your skin but it might not help on acne problem.
SK-II Whitening product contains Vitamin C which might trigger acne problem. You can use Ettusais Clear Spots Superior (15g) after Facial Treatment Essence for improving acne problem. Then, use a moisturizer, such as SK-II Skin Signture, to protect your skin. After the acne is improved, you can use SK-II Whitening product once a day and gradually increased to 2 times a day.SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Solution is designed for oily skin so I don't think you need to use it unless you have oily skin. Thanks for your kind attention and we look forward to serving you again shortly.Best Regards,Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
I would like to suggest Shiseido Anessa Babycare Sunscreen SPF34 PA+++ (25ml) or Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen for your consideration. These products are physical sunscreens which will not leave white residue after application. On top of that, they are the best selling sunscreens on our website as our customers prefer lightweight texture and strong protection to prevent the damages of UVA/UVB.Best Regards,Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
Dear Siti Salwa Rozali,
It helps to improve uneven complexion and pigmentation caused by acne. It encourages cells turnover so customers who use this product for 2-3 weeks, will definitely see the smoothing and refined pores results.
However, if you have oily skin and still have pimples, you might find that the effect is limited. In this case, I would like to recommend Kose Medicated Junkisui instead.
This product is designed to remove waterproof sunscreen and makeup so it's not necessary for you to use it daily without makeup/sunscreen on. Especially in low humidity weather, you might want to find a gentle cleanser, such as JUJU AquaMoist, Rohto Hadalabo, Sofina Milky Cleanser or Sofina Essence Cleanser, for daily use.
The cleanser is now made in Taiwan, under the authorization of Shiseido Japan. But other Elixir skin care Products, are made in Japan by Shiseido.
Yes, it is.
Only few Laneige items are carried by our supplier so we are looking for a new source for the full range of Laniege. I believe it will take a month or two for the import of this product.
Sorry for the delay and inconvenience caused.
We are sorry to inform you that no free shipping will be offered for international order as the shipping cost is too high and we need to pay extra for insurance to cover lost or damage.
Dear Cho Me,
I would recommend Shiseido HAKU CR Whitening Essence which can be applied to the whole face or only affected area. For Cleansing Foam, you can choose Shiseido Elixir Whitening Cleansing Foam which is suitable for all skin types to brighten skin tone and remove dead skin cells.
Happy New Year!
Yes, you should apply serum and moisturizer after Facial Treatment Essence.
Thanks! Happy New Year!
It lasts about 2-3 months. Thanks!
We are sorry to inform you that there is only Japanese ingredient list printed on the actual size product and no ingredient list on sample.
Since we do not have enough man power so we cannot translate/post product ingredient list one by one on the product page. Hope you understand it. But for the product that you mentioned, there is an ingredient list printed on the package and for some products, such as Apivita, we have ingredient lists on the website for customer reference.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
It can remove light makeup but you might want to clean your face twice, or use a face towel to massage your face and sides of nose gently, to remove any makeup residue. Then, use a face toner (makeup lotion) with a cotton pad to wipe your face for proper cleansing and toning.
Thanks and Happy Holidays!Best Regards,Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
Sorry for our late reply as we are out of town in these days.
Since we have 0 stock in hand so it will take 3-4 weeks for delivery. If you are fine with the schedule. we will get back to you after X'mas on the discounted price.
The products that we have, were imported in either 2012 or 2013 and they have 3-5 years shelf life. It does not have exact production or expiry date printed on the package.
For Kanebo Allie UV Moisture Gel (SPF50 PA++++ - 90g - 2013), it was imported in the Summer 2013 which is the latest version of Kanebo Allie sunscreen and the product will not be expired till 2016.
We have this product on hand. If you choose 5-7 days US standard shipping and purchase it today, we will send it out on next Monday and the parcel should reach you in a week.
If you choose 2-3 days shipping, you will receive the parcel by next Thu if the order is placed before next Monday.
Did you mean this special set? It contains actual size (60ml) of Shiseido Anessa Essence Sunscreen, 12ml Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen and 13ml of Kose Sekkisei Lotion. The retail price is $39.99 and here is product URL for your reference:
For the best selling whitening items, our customers like SK-II Whitening Series, Shiseido HAKU Whitening Essence and Kose Medicated Sekkisei Whitening Lotion. Can you tell me your skin type and whether you have skin allergy to Vitamin C? It will help us to give you further advice on the selection of whitening products.
Thanks! Happy Holiday!
This product is discontinued and the replacement is Sofina Whitening Sunscreen as listed:
#20 - Natural Beige is the most popular shade in our store. It is in beige tone with natural/light sand complexion so it is suitable for most Asian skin tone.
Thanks!Best Regards,Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
The production date of SK-II Skin Signature 3D Mask is 2012 so the expiry date is 2015.
The expiry date of Shu Uemura UVUB Poreraser Pink is also 2015.
No. You don't need to.
Thanks for your inquiry. We look forward to serving you again shortly.
The expiry date of this product is March, 2014. It is new in box and original.
Yes, you should apply toner, essence and moisturizer before makeup. The product description that you saw on our product page means the Clear Lotion helps to remove the last trace of makeup after daily cleansing AT NIGHT which is one of the functions of SK-II Clear Lotion. The product also helps you to eliminate the accumulation of dead skin cells and balance skin pH value so that the product that applied follows will be easier absorbed by the skin.
Sofina Day Beauty Protect is for daily use which combines the functions of moisturizer and sunscreen so you can use it right after toning. Meanwhile, no special cleanser is needed for removing this sunscreen.
Sofina Perfect UV Lucent is discontinued and the replacement is Sofina Perfect UV White SPF50. This sunscreen is in lightweight texture which will not leave a greasy or white layer on the skin after application. However, you need a separate moisturizer prior to using this sunscreen and a special cleanser, such as cleansing oil, is required for removing this sun protector.Best Regards,Katherine Chan
I will either use it before Serum or use Facial Treatment Essence to replace L'Oreal. You might want to use SK-II Clear Lotion after cleansing as this product acts as toner.
Sorry for the confusion. The product itself is in white color and silver cap - just like the one you see on SK-II official website.
We will change our product image shortly to minimize further confusion.
Thanks for your support and patience.
You may want to try Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 PA+++ (Moist) (dry skin) (32g) which acts as moisturizer and sun protector, and can be used right after toning.Thanks!Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
We offer flat rate shipping which costs $29.88. We would like to suggest you to purchase few more items to utilize the shipping cost and have multiple items at once.
Let us make a note and talk to our supplier so that we can have some next month.
If you do not see the difference after using SK-II, I would like to suggest Shiseido HAKU Whitening Essence which helps to improve pigmentation. You can apply the essence to the whole face or only on affected area by simply patting the essence till it is absorbed. I have used this essence for about a month and the dark spot is lighter than before. Having said that, if the dark spot is caused by hormones change, it might not able to remove it completely.
We are sorry to inform you that the ingredient list is printed in Japanese so I can only list out the key ingredients of sun protector gel for your reference: 1) Glycerin [Moisturizes]; 2) Coix Seed Essence [Moisturizes]; 3) Angelica Essence [Whitens]; 4) Melothria Essence [Whitens]; 5) Sasa Veitchii Essence [Antioxidant] This product is in thin and lightweight texture which can stay on your skin nicely and lock the nature moisture of your skin for long hour protection. This product is in watery but milky texture which is a bit thicker than sun protector. Having said that, it is easy to spread on your skin and will not clog pores.
Best Regards,Katherine Chanwww.beautykat.com
There are only 30ml and 50ml available which we carry them all. The one you mentioned might be in limited supply and we do not have 75ml on hand.
Sorry about that.
Yes. We only sell authentic products and we import our goods every month. For this specific item, the expiry date is 2016/2017.
Try Kao Curel Skin Care Series, Fancl or Komenuka Bijin which are suitable for most skin types and the formulations are so gentle which help to improve dryness and skin roughness.
Best Regards,Katherine ChanP.S - Congratulation! Wish you all the best ^__^
Yes, we will get more shortly but since this item is sent directly from Japan so it will take at least 3 weeks for delivery.
Sorry about that.
Yes, it can remove sunscreen. Here is a small tip for you - dry your hands and face before applying cleansing gel, massage gently so the gel can dissolve sunscreen and makeup. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Best Regards,Katherine Chanhttp://BeautyKat.com
It's kind of like natural beige shade as shown in the official website listed below. Since it can be used alone or under foundation so the shade is designed for most Asian complexion, which is natural beige with yellow undertone. Thanks!
Unfortunately, there is no English ingredient list for Rohto Hadalabo Tamagohada AHA+BHA Daily Face Foam but in most lower price skin care products, they do contain paraben. I think you should try Fancl Wash Powder instead and here is product detail:
Since you have normal skin so I think regular Stempower Moisturizer and Deep Surge are good enough UNLESS you live in low humidity area, or stay in a room with air conditioning for long hours. If this is the case, you can use an intensive moisturizer like Stempower Rich Cream in day or day and night.
And don't forget to use sunscreen to protect yourself from the damages of UVA/UVB.
Going back to your question, if you have Deep Surge and Stempower already, you can use Stempower in daytime and Deep Surge at night. Stempower is easy to be absorbed and it will not leave a greasy layer on the skin so it will not affect your makeup. Deep Surge is good too but it is in gel texture so when you apply foundation afterwards, the foundation might not stay on the skin nicely. Besides, it helps to brighten and repair damaged skin so it is better to use it at nighttime.
It will not affect the effectiveness of skin care product even though you use foundation after applying SK-II. But it is better for you to wait 3-5 mins before putting the makeup on. I always wear my makeup after breakfast to make sure the skin care product is penetrated into the skin.
We do accept international shipping and the flat rate shipping cost is US$29.88. That means no matter how many products you buy, the shipping cost will be the same.
Yes, it can be used day and night. If you want to purchase this item, please let us know and we can make a special order for you (2-3 weeks for delivery)
This product helps to moisturize and relieve dryness of your eye areas but in terms of reducing eye puffiness, it will not help a lot.
Try to put a silver spoon in the fridge for a while. Place the spoon on under eye areas for 20-30 seconds. You can also gently roll the spoon to massage the area a bit till the spoon get warm to reduce puffiness.
Dear Sue,This essence is used after cleansing and toning. After using Facial Treatment Essence, you can use SK-II Cellumination Essence EX, SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) (daytime) and SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge (50g) at night.
This product is temporarily out of stock. Once it is available, we will send you an image which shows the ingredients of this product for your reference.
For your skin concern, we would like to suggest Shiseido Anessa Babycare Sunscreen, Kao Curel Sunscreen and Isehan BB Care Sunscreen for your consideration. These sunscreen are designed for baby, sensitive and fragile skin so they will be better than Anessa Perfect UV in terms of the prevention of skin irritation.
These products are different. Shiseido Elixir Whitening Clear Lotion II is used as toner which is applied to the face after cleansing, while Emulsion is acted as moisturizer which is used after Whitening Clear Lotion.
I have tried it personally and I do like this product - it gives you right amount of hydration and the product penetrates into the skin so well. I feel my skin is softer and look healthier after using this product.
I am not sure those versions you see on other websites but my best guess is that, Whitening Moisturizing Milk and Essence are more concentrated than Gel. In this sense, you might want to try them if you have dry skin.
For detail, please see below website of the differences of Rohto Mentholatum. Thanks! www.mentholatum.com.my
As long as the product is unopened and in good condition to re-sell. We accept exchange or return. Here is our return policy:
I would like to recommend Sofina Jenne Series which is designed for young and oily skin types. Meanwhile, you might want to try Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream or Kose Seikisho Pure Brightener to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum.
Here is my suggestion for your skin care regimen:
1) Sofina Jenne Milky Cleanser (Daily Foam Cleanser - 100ml) http://www.beautykat.com/p946/Sofina-Jenne-Milky-Cleanser-(Daily-Foam-Cleanser---100ml)/product_info.html2) Sofina Jenne Lotion (I - Fresh) (Refreshing Toner for oily skin - 140ml)http://www.beautykat.com/p947/Sofina-Jenne-Lotion-(I---Fresh)-(Refreshing-Toner-for-oily-skin---140ml)/product_info.html 3) Sofina Jenne Day Protector SPF50+ PA+++ (for all skin types) (30ml) http://www.beautykat.com/p952/Sofina-Jenne-Day-Protector-SPF50+-PA+++-(for-all-skin-types)-(30ml)/product_info.html4) Sofina Jenne Jelly Moisturizer (Nighttime Moisturizer - 50g) http://www.beautykat.com/p949/Sofina-Jenne-Jelly-Moisturizer-(Nighttime-Moisturizer---50g)/product_info.html5) Special care products - Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream or Kose Seikisho Pure Brightener. Use this special cleansing product 2-3 times a week to improve oily skin problem.If you prefer products that made of natural ingredients, you can consider Apivita Purifying Tonic Lotion and Apivita Aqua Vita 24hr Moisturizing Cream for Oily/Combination Skin as listed below:http://www.beautykat.com/p1354/Apivita-Purifying-Tonic-Lotion-for-Oily/Combination-Skin-w/-Citrus-&-Propolis-(200ml)/product_info.htmlhttp://www.beautykat.com/p1393/Apivita-Aqua-Vita-24hr-Moisturizing-Cream-for-Oily/Combination-Skin-w/-Chaste-Tree-&-Honey-(50ml)/product_info.html For Thinning Hair, I would like to suggest Yanagiya Alomail Medicated Scalp Lotion as listed below. My friend is using this item and she is totally in love with it :) http://www.beautykat.com/Brand-Yanagiya/c24_232/p1739/Yanagiya-Alomail-Medicated-Scalp-Lotion-(professional---240ml)/product_info.html
The essence will be lasted for 2-3 weeks if you apply day and night. Thanks!
Sorry for our late reply. We were out of town so we were not able to send you the ingredient list of this item. Here is the scan image of the product label. Thanks!
Yes, the whitening essence is now packed in a paper box instead of plastic seal and it contains Arbutin and Vitamin C. Thanks!
We are sorry to inform you that we are not able to give you further detail on this item as the ingredient list of this product is in Korean.
We import Fancl from Taiwan which has Chinese product description, English ingredient list and production date printed on the box. Having said that, all Fancl products are produced in Japan by Fancl which are original and authentic. And the packaging of Fancl Cleansing Oil is always in light green color but once in a while, Fancl will have special design (limited edition) of its' own packaging. Thanks!
There is no need to rinse off Clear Lotion before the application of Facial Treatment Essence.
Yes, I will recommend Sofina Beaute Day Protector which is used as moisturizer and sunscreen so no day cream is needed prior to using this product. If you want to use a stronger, waterproof sun care product, you can also consider Sofina Perfect UV Sunscreen as shown below:
Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen provides UVA and UVB protections. It has SPF50 which protects your skin from the damage of UVB that provokes skin inflammation and redness. Meanwhile, it offers PA++++ which is the highest level of sunscreen protection to prevent UVA damage that darkens your skin, encourages pigmentation and causes aging problem.
I've used google translation to find out the detail of this item. You might want to refer below webpage and use google translation to see the information as well:
Shiseido Anessa Perfect Smooth Sunscreen was discontinued about a year ago. The new replacement is Shiseido Anessa Perfect Essence Sunscreen which is now available on our website.
No. The product you see on the website is either 330ml or 165ml. You can refer the product name for detail.
Sorry for any confusion.
Actually, we have 2012 version but the only difference between 11 and 12 is packaging. Meanwhile, 2011 version is sold out already (except for sensitive skin and SPF34) so we are waiting for the new shipment which should arrive in a week or two. We will change the content and product images as we will have 2013 Japan version of Kanebo Allie.
Right now, we only got Kanebo Allie EX UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++ (whitening - 25ml) which was produced in 2012 and has 3 years shelf life.
Unfortunately, this product has to be imported by Japan so only Japanese ingredient list is available.
Sorry for my late reply as I was out of town in the last couple of days.
I've scanned the ingredient list which is posted on the product page. Please refer the detail as shown below:
As mentioned in previous message, the date that printed on the bottle is production date and it has 3 years shelf life. Therefore, the product will not be expired till 2015.
This essence helps to encourage skin cells turnover so over the time, the dead skin cells that sitting on top of acne spots will be peeled off naturally for softening and smoothing results.
However, if you want to improve your acne skin problem, I will suggest Kose Medicated Junkisui or Ettusais for cleansing, refreshing and balancing sebum production. Here are product details of Kose Junkisui and Ettusais:
These brands will also help you to take care of the whiteheads and clogging pores problem.
Here is the full list of Perfect UV Sunscreen:Zinc Oxide (13.87%), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (4%), Cyclomethicone, Water, Dimethicone, Alcohol, Glycerin, Talc, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate, Crosspolymer, Polysilicone-9, Titanium Dioxide, PEG-12 DIMEHICONE, METHICONE, PEG-3 DIMETHICONE, CHAMOMILE ET, SQUALANE, Dimethicone/Methicone Copolymer, Aluminium, Hydroxide, Silica, Hydrated Silica, BHTHaving said that, if you want to have an effective whitening serum, I will suggest SK-II, Shiseido HAKU or Sofina White Essence. These products are popular in Asia and our customers rave about the effectiveness of these serums on improving dark spots and freckles. Thanks!
It means 1 package of 3 masks. Thanks!
Since the product contains Vitamin C which might trigger breakout on the first few days of application. If it is not too serious, you can still use it and apply spot treatment to improve acne problem. However, if your skin becomes red, hot and itchy, you might want to stop using it.
This product is in transit and we should receive it in the next few days.
We have asked our supplier for the ingredient list of this product. Unfortunately, all we have is Japanese ingredient list. Sorry about that.
Yes. We still have some on hand. Please see below web page for product detail:
This product is an emulsion which should be applied after toner. Put some in palm and use fingers to apply the emulsion to the face as usual. Product which has "Medicated" printed on the package means that it is approved by Japan Ministry of Health. In most Japanese whitening products, you will find "Medicated" on the package.
I am sorry to inform you that this is an old version of Omi Bear Sunscreen.
Sorry about that.
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have an ingredient list of this product. Sorry about that.
We do ship to California with Free Shipping offer. Here is product detail:
Dear Kelly Guan,
We still carry last year version of Shiseido Elixir Whitening, except for Shiseido Elixir White Reset Brightenist (40g), but we will bring in the latest version gradually after the inventory of existing product is cleared.
Thanks for your kind attention and we look forward to serving you again shortly.
We are sorry to inform you that only Japanese ingredient list is printed on the bottle. Once we get further information from our supplier, we will list the ingredients on our website.
FANCL White Aqua Repairing Mask (3 pieces) is now available as listed below.
After washing, please use Facial Treatment Clear Lotion which acts as toner to remove dead skin cells and the last trace of makeup. Then, apply Facial Treatment Essence and moisturizer.Thanks!
Dear Susan Ellen Cohen,
we have just placed a new order of KissMe Impact and Frame mascara which should be ready within 10-14 business days. For the new Shiseido Mascara, we have also placed an order but we need to cross check with our supplier on product availability.
Thank you for your support and patience. We look forward to serving you again shortly.
If you do not have sensitive skin, I will recommend SK-II Clear Lotion (toner), Facial Treatment Essence (improve rough skin and refine pores) and Stempower Moisturizer (rehydrate your skin without leaving a greasy layer on it). These items are the basic skin care products that help to improve dryness and promote anti-aging to your skin. For Shiseido Elixir Whitening, I like Lotion II (toner), Moisturizer II (for normal to dry skin) and Shiseido Elixir Whitening Protector SPF50. They rehydrate, soften and brighten your skin and it is less expensive than SK-II. This series is suitable for most skin types, including for some sensitive skin. Having said that, I do like SK-II better as I can see the result after using a couple of weeks. For Sofina Beaute Series, our customers prefer Sofina Beaute Intensive Hydrating Lotion (Toner II - dry & normal to dry skin), Sofina Beaute Intensive Emulsion (II - Nighttime Moisturizer) (dry & normal to dry skin) and Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 PA+++ (Moist) (dry skin). These products improve dryness from inside out and prevent aging problem. I will recommend you try Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 as it serves as day moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup base so you can use it right after toner.
This product helps to firm your muscles a bit. It is recommended to use this product after working out and taking shower for better result.
After all, exercise and healthy eating play a major role in body slimming.
Shiseido Anessa Mild Face Sunscreen (SPF46) contains 13.43% Zinc Oxide which is higher than other Anessa Sunscreen. There is another active ingredient contained in Anessa SPF46 and the ingredient is Polysilicone-15 (7.5%). Thanks!
There is no expiry date printed on the box but we just order them from our US distributor about a month ago.
Since we only have 2 boxes left, please let me know the exact qty you want so that I can place a special order for you which should reach us within 7-10 business days.
This hair coloring doesn't cover gray hair so you might want to try Bitter Apricot. It contains Amonia but the smell is not strong. The color can last for 2-3 weeks. I would recommend Apivita shampoo for colored hair or Komenuka Bijin moisturizing shampoo after hair coloring which helps to maintain and moisturizes hair for lasting and glossy results.
I am out of town so I am not able to give you the full ingredient list till 10th Jan. Can you wait for 1-2 weeks more?
The BB Cream is in beige (pink undertone) which is suitable for most Asian skin complexion.
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have enough information for your reference. In fact, we are going to discontinue this product and right now, we only have one piece left.
We do not have Kanebo Wakanka cleansing liquid so we do not know the detail of the usage. Sorry about that.
For sensitive skin, I would like to recommend Fancl, Kao Curel or Rohto Hada Labo ES Series. Laneige Water Bank Essence contains light fragrance which might trigger skin allergy.
Thanks for your kind attention. Happy Holiday!
The ingredient list of this product is in Japanese so we cannot give you the detail on this front. You might want to try their official website and send them a message for further inquiry. Here is Kose, USA website for you reference:
Sorry for out late reply.
We have checked with our supplier and the product label for detail. There is no warning on the usage of this product for pregnancy. Having said that, you might want to talk to your doctor for detail.
Since we are out of town so we are not able to give you the ingredient list till Jan, 10th. If you still want to have detail, please send us an email to email@example.com and we will give you further detail 2-3 weeks later.
Once again, we are sorry for the delay.

They are all physical sunscreen as the main ingredient contained in the products is Zinc Oxide which only reflects UVA/UVB so it helps to minimize the possibility of skin allergy.
For babycare sunscreen from Shiseido, the main ingredient is also Zinc Oxide, which is considered as inorganic ingredient but the formula is designed for fragile skin, and the texture is light so it is popular among our customers, especially for those who has sensitive skin and want to have a light sun care product for daily use.
Dear Henih Daniel,
This product is suitable for all skin types. It is lighter than other BB cream. However, if you have fair to medium skin tone, I will suggest Shu Uemura UV Under Base BB Mousse SPF30 PA+++ (65g) instead. This product is in air mousse foam which is the lightest and the product can give you right amount of coverage.
We've counted the discount in this special set already. As you see the original price is $105 but now it's $79.99 which is more than 10% off. Therefore, we can't offer further discount on this set.
Thank you for your business.
Since we use USPS priority mail service so in most cases, we have to pay at least US$30 on international shipping. We used to provide First Class Mail but it takes at least a month for delivery and no tracking number is provided. If the order is lost or being returned, there is no way for us to check or file compensation.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but we are afraid that we can't lower our shipping cost anymore.
Thanks for your understanding and we look forward to serving you again shortly.
We have ordered the cleansing foam from our supplier but we are still expecting his confirmation on product availability. We will inform you once it is available.
There is no plastic wrap for Kose Softymo and only a plastic cap attached. Thanks!
Shiseido Anessa Mild Face Sunscreen SPF46 can be used as daily sunscreen. You can remove it without using Cleansing Oil or Makeup Up Remover and it is more suitable for oily or sensitive skin.
Shiseido Anessa Essence Sunscreen is designed for outdoor activities so it is sweat and water resistant with higher SPF protection. It contains concentrated hydrating ingredients in order to re-hydrate dry and damaged skin caused by sun exposure.
Since I am in Japan right now so I can purchase those products for you. Please let me know the detail of Kanebo FreePlus as soon as you can. I am leaving on Friday and I will get you back whether I am able to carry those products for you.
For the product cost, you can refer their official website (with sales tax). We charge 10% handling fee + domestic shipping (in US).
Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spots is popular among our customers but it takes some time to see the result. Besides, it is not designed for sensitive skin.
The method that I suggest is for normal to dry skin or for someone who wants to use this product in Winter. If you have oily skin, you do not need to apply a hydrating toner before the application of this mask. And yes, I recommend you to use this product to minimize white/black heads on t-zone area.
For your age, I think Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (used as toner), Facial Treatment Essence and Skin Signature are good enough. Signs Up Lifter is an essence which targets saggy and premature skin so unless you have such problem, I don't think you should use it for now.
This product is fast moving goods and we stock up regularly (once a month). Since I am out of town so I will check with my colleague for the expiry date of this product but as long as I remember, you should see the printed number (expiry date) in the bottom of the product.
These products are directly imported from Japan so only Japanese ingredient lists are printed on the boxes. If you can specific an ingredient list that you are looking for, I can ask my colleague to scan the list and email to you. Some products, such as Anessa, we do have English ingredient lists on hand but it will take a while for sending you the lists. Sorry about that.
The percentage of Zinc Oxide is 11.31%. I have updated the ingredient list of the product. Please see below product page for detail:
I would like to suggest Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion which is used as toner day and night. This product helps to brighten your skin complexion and improves acne mark.
Another product that I like is SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is used after cleansing, toning but before moisturizing. It helps to encourage skin cells turnover for smooth and soft skin texture. It improves large pores and sebum production too.
If you want to choose a whitening skin care series that is less expensive and target your skin concern. I will suggest Sofina Beaute to complement the above products. Here are my suggestions:
1) Sofina Beaute Massage Foam Cleanser (170g) (for all skin)
2) Kose Medicated Sekkisei Whitening Lotion (200ml)
3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (150ml)
4) Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 PA+++ (Fresh) (oily skin) (32g)
5) Sofina Beaute Whitening Emulsion (120ml) (I - Nighttime Moisturizer) (oily & acne prone skin) (nighttime only)

You might want to try Kao Curel Series which is listed as below:
This series is designed for dry and sensitive skin which I think, is more suitable for your sensitive skin.
Did you buy the product from us? The expiry date that you see on the box is in Taiwan format so the product should be good to use in the next 1-3 years. Please let us know the number that printed on the ingredient label (not bar code) so that we can tell the exact expiry date.
Sorry, we do not have the skin set for normal to oily skin type.
This skin care set should be used after cleansing and you should dry your skin before using the toner and moisturizer.
This travel set is designed for face and used as skin care product.
Sorry to inform you that we only sell this product online.
Sorry for the confusion. The product is expired in August, 2012. The expiry date that you originally found on our website is for the last shipment. We didn't update the content when the new shipment arrives.
Once again, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Juju AquaMoist Series does not contain fragrance, mineral oil or other harsh ingredients. You might want to stick to Moisturizing Series as it does not contain Alcohol which is gentle to sensitive skin. For the detail of Juju AquaMoist Series, Please also refer below web page:
This product was manufactured in 2011 and it is good for 3 years. You will see Minguo Calender (add 11 to the first two digits for calculating the year of production) printed on the box as this product is imported from Taiwan but it is made in Japan and manufactured by SK-II.
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have 1800 customer service hotline but you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and most of the time, we will reply you in 24 hours.
Thank you for your kind attention and we look forward to serving you shortly.
Sofina Perfect UV White Protect is waterproof and sweat resistant so you need a cleansing oil or makeup remover to clean it thoroughly. Sofina Beaute Day Protector is a 2-in-1 moisturizer and sunscreen so you can use it after cleansing and toning. Meanwhile, no makeup remover is needed to clean this 2-in-1 day moisturizer.
Both sunscreen are good for oily skin (choose Type I - Fresh for Sofina Beaute Day Protector) but if you have sensitive skin, you might want to use other sun care product, such as Isehan SuhadaFit UV Baby Milk or Isehan Sunkiller Kid's UV Milk SPF38 as listed below:
We will proceed your order within 1-2 business days after the payment is received. If you choose US 5-7 business days delivery, you will receive the order in a week. Meanwhile, you can choose 2-3 days shipping (US$5.88) or Express Mail if you need the order urgently. Please refer our shipping policy as listed below for further detail:
The product is now in stock as shown on below webpage:
This product has a natural beige with pink undertone to correct dull complexion. Here is one of the products detail from their official website:
Basically, a makeup remover (cleansing oil or cleansing gel) is able to remove sunscreen. To achieve the best result, dry your hand and face before using the cleansing gel. The sunscreen and makeup will be dissolved while massaging. Then, wet your hand and massage your face in circular motion. Use lukewarm water to rinse off the cleanser completely. A daily face cleanser is also recommended to remove dirt and excess sebum after a makeup remover is used. Try Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot for acne problem and here is my suggestion:
Day: 1) Sofina Jenne Milky Cleanser (Daily Foam Cleanser - 100ml); 2) Sofina Jenne Lotion (I - Fresh) (Refreshing Toner for oily skin - 140ml); 3) Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot Serum (for t-zone and acne); 4) Sofina Jenne Day Protector SPF24+ PA+++ (I - Fresh - oily skin) (30g) or Sofina Jenne Day Protector SPF50+ PA+++ (for all skin types) (30ml)
Sofina Jenne Day Protector is a moisturizer with sunscreen function so no special cleanser is needed to remove this product. If you use Sofina Perfect UV White Sunscreen, a makeup remover is recommended as this sunscreen is waterproof. Night: 1) Sofina Beaute Makeup Cleansing Gel (150g) (for all skin) 2) Use (1) to (3) products as stated above; 3) Sofina Jenne Jelly Moisturizer (Nighttime Moisturizer - 50g)
It depends on your skin concern and texture. If you have dehydrated skin with rough skin texture, or you see the first sign of aging, such as deep line around your mouth area, you might want to use Sofine Beaute series for anti-aging and softening results.
Having said that, I would recommend Sofina Jenne series for young skin, or for those who want to keep their skin healthy but improve dry patches that occasionally occur when the weather changes.
