I recently gave birth to my precious firstborn baby Zatasyah Zurairi on 19th Feb 2016 at Hospital Putrajaya. Let me say confinement week was pretty interesting, especially getting used to the whole new mommy routine as well. Sleep is a luxury and because of interrupted sleep, my skin has become dull.

I have a new morning skincare routine after giving birth and have been using Kosé Sekkisei famed brightening and hydrating lotion. This keeps my skin moisturised, brighter with even skin tone.

Keep on reading for my step-by-step morning and night skincare routine and review on Kosé Sekkisei lotion down below.

I received Kosé Sekkisei skincare set towards the end of my pregnancy week and since the first week of giving birth I have been using the famed Kosé Sekkisei lotion as part of my  skincare routine and loving it.


Morning Skincare routine

Step 1: Wash my face

Sekkisei White Liquid Wash 20ml

This liquid wash is mild and cleans the skin while retaining moisture. I would dispense 1 pump onto my palm and foam it up with a little bit of water, massage onto the skin and rinse off.

My skin felt cleansed and not tight which means it is not drying out at all.


Step 2: Tone my skin

Sekkisei Lotion 100ml

Very watery and light lotion

This is the STAR product of Kosé Sekkisei range. This refreshing lotion enhancse skin translucency and clarity with only a thin layer.

Put 3-4 drops of lotion onto cotton pad and pat gently on the face. I would tap using my clean tips of fingers to increase the absorbency of the lotion.


Step 3: Moisturise my skin

Sekkisei Emulsion 70ml

This emulsion is the moisturiser for the skin to keep it supple and soft. This emulsion is watery and light in texture. I would dispense 2 pumps onto cotton pad and spread evenly over the skin.

Using Sekkisei emulsion, my skin is noticeably brighter with boosted radiance. This is also a great skin base, ready for a gorgeous simple makeup.

Then I would apply a light layer of sunscreen and light makeup and get going with the rest of day – feeding the baby, changing diapers and spending quality time with my new baby.


Night Skincare Routine

Step 1: Remove makeup and wash my face

Sekkisei White Liquid Wash 20ml

After removing my light makeup thoroughly (if I wore them) I would use Sekkisei White liquid wash to cleanse and brighten my skin.

Step 2: Tone my skin

Sekkisei Lotion 100ml

Then, of course I would use the star product which is the lotion to tone, and improve my skin clarity.


Step 3: Evening lotion mask

Sekkisei Lotion 100ml

As night time routine is a chance for me to improve my dull skin, I would use Sekkisei lotion as a quick 10 minutes mask.

Using the Bihadagoyomi Mask which is a compressed sheet mask, I would put the dry mask into the cap of Sekkisei lotion, pour a good few drops enough to fill the cap, wait for the sheet mask to soak up the precious liquid. Then I would peel open the sheet mask and apply it on my skin for a good 10 minutes (or 5 minutes… if I’m strained for time)

Using this method may provide your skin with 10 times more benefit of the Sekkisei lotion. That means 10 times more moisture that instantly brightens and rejuvenates skin.


About twice a week I would change the mask and use Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask instead.

Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask 10ml

Black mask than brighten your skin

This is a peel-off mask that removes black heads, dead skin cells and tightens visible pores. This mask is particular suited for my blemish-prone skin which is the main reason why I love it. It gives me a gentle exfoliation while provide nourishment to the skin.
