I received a parcel from my aunt all the way from Japan. It contains some of my “bilins” and this cool Menard Tsukika Skincare Set. What is awesome about my aunt is that apart from the full size set, she also sent me sample boxes that I can bring whenever I travel. How cool is that?
I googled about the brand and found very promising details:
The Menard Tsukika Skincare line embraces your skin with a fresh and smooth sensation. It helps moisturizing your skin even if it is exposed to severe environmental conditions; such as, dry air and ultraviolet rays, or affected by aging. TSUKKA helps to improve cell energy and normalize skin turnover. Some of its key ingredients are Night Blooming Cereus flower extract and Hyalluronic Acid.
The box includes a make-up removal cream (cleansing cream), facial foam cleanser (washing cream), toner (lotion), massage cream, milk lotion and cream. It is an extensive skin care regime. For daytime, you use the washing cream, lotion and milk lotion.
For the nightime routine, you start with the cleansing cream to remove your makeup, followed by the washing cream. Then you use the massage cream and massage your face for a few minutes. The box includes a pamphlet with a guide on how to massage your face. It’s quite similar to what is usually done during facials. You wipe off the massage cream and proceed with the lotion. Then you slather your face with the milk lotion and cream after.
Since my skin can’t take too much cream during night time because I’m prone to breakouts, I use the massage cream and cream in rotation. I bought a facial brush at Daiso for the washing cream to make things easier.
