Tomoe Kobo: simple and natural

I was using this simple skin care system for around 2 weeks only at night, washing skin just with water in the morning as excessive use of cleansing products washes away natural sebum. I am pretty satisfied with it (and it is very good for me as I hate spending so much time for skincare procedures >_<). Soap doesn’t foam so much, but as for organic products you should be aware it might not lather that much and as I mentioned before, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t clean as good as not organic ones and this soap cleaned very well!  But if your skin is oily you might want to use cleansing gel. My skin type is a bit dry type so this soap left my skin a bit tight. Thats why I used toner right after washing my face which left it more balanced – not too oily not too dry, very supple and soft. I don’t know if it is just a coincidence but my skin felt much brighter and clearer after the first time of using it. I also like the smell of both soap and toner which is very light and natural.

Here you can see how well toner cleaned after I lightly wiped my skin with a cotton pad:

All Tomoe Kobo products are made from Dokudami, which is used in Japanese medicine and it is 100% chemical free (isnt’t it great?). I might think of continue using it as it is simple, gentle, refreshing and organic:)

This reminds me of Japanese sweets called Taiyaki (Tai is a famous japanese fish). Design is cool, isn’t it? And it is comfortable as it has rope, so you can hang it in your bath or just like decoration in your room (if you think it is too nice to be used). Smell is sooo good and refreshing. I got red one, which smells like pomegrate. My bath was full of this nice smell so it works great as a room fragrance too!

I usually prefer using shower gel instead of soap because soap usually leaves skin dry. This wasn’t an exception (but you should know that the purpose of soap is not to moisturize but to clean, so you should add moisturizer right after washing your skin, please read HERE). My hubby likes that dry skin feeling after bath because it feels like all the dirt was washed away. And if your body metabolism is fine, your natural oil layer of the skin will recover pretty soon so you don’t have to worry. Keep in mind that moisture and oil is different so as I said please apply moisturizer.

This soap might seem a bit expensive but it weighs 310g. You can also choose from lilly and brown sugar scents. It is made from natural plant ingredients.
