Since june I have been waiting for this book from my local library as they needed to bring it in for me from another London borough, Finally able to read it myself and see if it is amazing and rave about.
If you do not know what this book about, it is written by Chizu Saeki, the beauty guru in Japan (however i doubt whether she has botox or cosmetic surgery as her skin does look a bit fake) and she wrote this simple book about how to take care of your skin.
She did write a few things we should all know by now. In particular, determining your skin type and how to care. So I skipped nearly 1/2 book and take notice in a few things. You are all welcome to get hold of and make a decision by yourself.
After reading, I think this book is really useful and I have taken a few advice from the following:
- Lymph Message
I tried it on myself, works great and relaxing..
I tried the message on S.. he said it hurts like hell
- Cleansing process
Chizu technique as follows:
Soak 2 cotton with water and your makeup remover
fold one of them into triangular shape and place under your eye
the other to remove upper part of eyelid
use a cotton bud, soak it in makeup remover and gently remove your eye makeup mascara and eyeliner
also remove the residue around your waterline
lastly, remove the remaining eye makeup using the triangular shape cotton which you have been placing under eye
repeat for the other eye
My old technique:
soak cotton with warm water and makeup remover
place cotton over eye for 1-2 mins
remove makeup by gently wiping it off
do you see a big difference? I was soo surprise that there was so much eyeliner at the undereye area and cotton bud!
Also she said you need to try to take as long time to take off your makeup as you put on them.. so if you take 30 mins to put on makeup, you need to take 30 to take off them (or prepare anyway)
- Morning cleansing procedure
- Message your face with serum
That’s all I learn from Chizu... which I think is useful
Do I want to spend 12.99 GBP (20 usd) on this book? No... I think I better claim my tax and borrow from library..
