KENZO Cleansing Ice Jelly

KENZO introduces a new addition to its Euphoric Ginger line, Cleansing Ice Jelly, a unique self-cooling cleanser that removes impurities and makeup while activating skin cells with Ginseng extract. This chilly jelly turns into a soft, water-like cleanser upon skin contact, and doubles as a gentle, non-irritating make-up remover. Its unique texture makes it especially effective on even waterproof makeup. Ginseng extract tones and stimulates, while the spicy scent of ginger flower helps to invigorate the senses.

WHAT IT DOES: Gently Cleanses. Removes make-up. Tones.

HOW TO USE: Morning or evening, dab on a soft cotton pad or apply directly to face and neck. TIPS: Store this cleanser in the refrigerator to enhance its toning properties. Follow up this cleanser with KENZOKI Vital Ice Cream to lock in moisture and enhance its invigorating properties.

The Japanese Skincare Revolution by Chizu Saeki is the Japanese woman’s skincare bible. Auther and beauty guru Chizu Saeki shares with the world, for the first time, the natural, low-cost techiniques she developed over a career spent in the beauty industry. With it, you’ll learn what today’s Japanese women do to keep their skin looking young and healthy.

Here is an interview with Leading Beauty Expert Chizu Saeki Author of The Japanese Skincare Revolution.

Why did you choose the skincare industry for your profession?
When I was 13 years old, I saw Audrey Hepburn in a film catalog, and I was amazed that such a beautiful person could exist. This is what aroused my interest in beauty. I began imitating her looks, and gradually I realized what a wonderful thing it is to become beautiful. I quit the clerical job I had been working and enrolled in a beauty school to help others achieve beauty.

How are Japanese and American women different in their approaches to skincare?
Japanese women generally want to whiten their skin. When I lived in the U.S., I got the impression that Americans are more interested in hair design and don’t get hung up on details-brown spots, open pores, and such. They look to a more holistic kind of beauty.
