KOTOHA London Skincare Review

Your Beauty Gossip
I was blessed to be introduced to KOTOHA London, a prestige natural beauty brand based in London. I have always admired the youthful skin of Japanese’s women; with their clear porcelain glowing complexion and have read and even tried to implement some of their skincare routines. So I’m for ever grateful to Yoko who kindly gifted me some of her skincare products to try and from the get go I’m telling you they are amazing.

KOTOHA was established in 2015 by founder and owner Yoko Obata. Yoko herself suffered with problem skin through her teens and early adulthood. With a degree in fine arts, experience working with Japanese’s pharmaceutical company Yoko always had an interest in cosmetic ingredients. After moving to the UK and completing her masters in fine arts, Yoko went on to study beauty therapy and started to incorporate natural herbal ingredients into her own skin care routine which soon started to show obvious results. With encouragement from family, friends and private clients Yoko has develop these products into her revolutionary brand, KOTOHA Cosmetics London.

KOTOHA Shoyaku Herb Essence Moist Water

Unlike any other toner, this Moist Water is jam packed with ‘magical’ shoyaku (oriental medicinal herbs) including Ginseng and Peonia Lactifolia and is not used in the traditional sense; this is moisturizing water, not a wipe-off toner. Applied using a generous amount of Moist Water on to cotton pad, gently and thoroughly pat all over the face and neck until you feel a cool sensation. Then gently press the palms of your hands to the face, this helps penetrate the lotion into your skin further with the heat from your hands.

This serum contains some powerful ingredients; along with shoyaku herbs there is hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, vitamin-rich raspberry oil and three humectants to boost the skin’s water retention. All these ingredients combined help to nourishes and moisturise dry skin, instantly brightens tired, dull looking skin and plumps drawn sagging skin.

KOTOHA Shoyaku Herb Essence Anti-Aging Cream

This anti-aging cream uses two of the finest ingredients available, ginseng extract and CoEnzymeQ10 along with Kukui nut oil which contains Vitamins A and C and is high in anti-oxidants there is also rosehip oil, pomegranate oil and hemp oil making this ideal for mature skin.

I’ve been using all of the above products for the last four week and found them to be lightweight in texture and fast absorbing. The packaging is simple, clean no fussy design and I quite like that. All KOTOHA products are natural and free from toxic ingredients such as Paraben, SLS, SLES, artificial fragrances and artificial colours.

I’ve only ever said this once about a product before but I’m saying it again with KOTOHA “You can really feel these products working deep within the skin layers”, my skin is brighter, softer, smoother, pumped and moisturized, there’s a reduction in fine lines and those terrible black bags under my eyes are next to nothing. KOTOHA products have been tested on volunteers for five years and are proven to be effective and this I can confirm as I can see visible improvement in my skin day after day.

KOTOHA London is quite a new brand and one I can see going places and deserves every bit of recognition it receives. I wish Yoko all the best in her new business and will continue to use her products in my day-to-day skincare routine and of course I would highly recommend their products.
