Minnasan konnichiwa!!! (Hello everybody!!!)
It’s has been a while since I last attended a Butterfly Project Malaysia event. Arigatō Mamasan, Tammy Lim for this invite. I’m so happy to be part of Butterfly Project Malaysia and got to go to this Halloween party with Kracie. (Usually I will pretend to have an awesome Halloween watching scary old movies on TV at home. But not this year! Hehehe)
I did dress up to the occasion, read on to see my kawaii makeup look and #ootd. And oh, if you noticed I’m speaking Japanese, I’m practising for my trip to Japan next year. ;P (Or..thanks to Google Translate. hehe)
Kracie ni tsuite sukoshi (A little about Kracie)
I think most of us would recognise Kracie in its former name: Kanebo. (Aaah..now I caught your attention right?!) In 1936, its predecessor successfully developed the technology of refining raw oil used to make soaps from chrysalises of silkworms for the first time in Japan and introduced the highest quality soap, ‘Savon de Soie’ (Kanebo Silk Soap), to the market.
Kanebo was a successful cosmetics brand, even surviving World War II in 1944-1946. The brand start producing food products and pharmaceutical products too.
In 2007, Kanebo was renamed as “Kracie”, with its slogan “たいせつなこと。”(Taisetsu na koto) means “for the important things in life”. Kracie is now one of the largest Japanese companies in Japan providing lifestyle products for everyday: Toiletries & Cosmetics, Pharmaceutical, and Food.
I was so happy to celebrate Halloween with Kracie and Butterfly Project Malaysia. The theme was “Keep Calm and Stay Kawaii”. Obviously the girls (and me!) brought out our cutest Japanesy (!) outfit and wore them to the event.
Watashi wa kawaii deshitaka? (Was I cute?)
Koko o mite! (Look here!)
I was introduced to the two cult products from Kracie and they were Ichikami Hair Care range and Hadabisei Facial Masks. These are really popular in Japan!
Ichikami Hair Care
A hair care series that uses Japanese Botanical Essences to not only repair existing hair damage, but prevent future damages as well.
It is formulated with repair and prevention ingredients. It is not surprising that the main ingredient is Rice Extract that gives your hair boost of moisture, lustres, strengthens, repairs and nourishes from tip to roots.
Another key point to note that the Ichikami shampoo has a fine lather that cleans hair gently while protecting against further damage from shampooing.
There are two hair care lines: Moist Care and Smooth Care.
Moist care line (Pink bottle) aims to hydrate the hair and scalp, give the maximum moisture needed to both the hair and scalp. Good bye dry and brittle hair, split ends and dullness.
Smooth care line (Orange bottle) aims to improve the smoothness of hair and repair the damaged hair at the same time. For those with tangled and frizzy hair, permed and colored hair, oily hair and stiff hair–> this is for you!
Ichikami shampoo and conditioner retail at RM15.90 each. Travel set (shampoo and conditioner in a cute plastic package) retail for RM15.90 Ichikami Hair Styling products range between RM18.90 to RM28.90. Ichikami Hair Oil retails for RM39.90.
Hadabisei Skin Care
Hadabisei is a total skin care brand which comprises Brightening, Dryness-induced Wrinkle Care, Adult Acne Care and face masks, providing all-rounded care to promote beautiful, clear skin. However, I would to show to you guys the STAR PRODUCT which is the Hadabisei facial masks. I am a total sheet mask addict so I am pretty excited for Hadabisei facial masks.
