Product Description

Formulated with mild Sake to hydrate and nourish rough skin

Sake relieves the tension from both body and soul with its smooth, sensational scent while purifying and hydrating skin. Additions of various grain extracts along with Sodium Hyaluronate to this body lotion hydrate and nourish skin.

What is Sake? A spirit derived from the fermentation of rice, this grain wine is gaining popularity in Japan for such skincare benefits as promoting metabolism and purging skin debris for a clearer complexion.

Texture & Scent:

This body lotion is runnier than your usual body lotions, so it spreads easily unto your skin. It sinks in quickly too, leaving a slight sticky feel behind which disappears after awhile. I'm truly relieved that this does not smell like actual sake - i don't want people asking me why i smell like soy sauce! lol!! :D This one smells like delicate flowers!! :D


This body lotion comes in a pump bottle which i love (and hate when its starting to run low! lol!!)! :D

The box in came in:

Price & Availability:
This body lotion is available at all The Face Shop outlets and is sold for RM39.90 each.

My $0.02:

I sure took awfully long to review to review this body lotion! If you remember, i got this as part of a set for my wedding!! lol!! :D

Ok, with that aside, here's my two cents' worth of this product! :D

I actually kinda like it! It moisturizes quite well, and the scent is really lovely! :D Come to think of it, i can't really think of anything bad about this product, except that this contains mineral oil, which i'm alright with on my body, but i know alot of people are iffy about this particular ingredient so you might want to test this one out first! :D

All in all i'll definitely repurchase this one! :D

  3. roxy: thanks!! :D Ya the bottle's pretty!! :D

  4. Nikki: ya this one's a regular in their stores!! :D

  5. Isn't Sake fermented rice wine? I love to drink it. In fact I love the pungent alchoholic scent. I love this lotion too & you are righ, this is nowhere near the lliquor. I got it but have to use it. This is pricier where I am, looks like I should cross the causeway & get them in future.

  6. I like drinking sake too! I like mine ice cold! Hehe!! :)

    You should come now!! It's on sale so its even cheaper!! :D

  7. Oh yes I heard it is on sale. The causeway is quite a bitch to cross tho. I am away in HKG on vacation tho.
