It's not often I come across a beauty brand that I absolutely cannot live without, but KohGenDo is one of them. About a year and a half ago the Japanese skincare and cosmetic brand launched online in the US and just recently they made their big debut on the counters at Barneys in New York and in Beverly Hills. Get this – Barney's can't keep the products on shelves! Looks like the rest of the world is with me. I covet the skincare. Especially the Macro Vintage Essence Mask. It's one product I'll share only with my mom because it's that good. I use it once a week and it keeps my skin boosting with a fresh, dewy glow.
KohGenDo recently came out with Gommage Gel that's a gentle exfoliator and trust me on this – you know it's working. Why? Because all of the dead skin cells and impurities you're rubbing away show as the exfoliant turns to rubbery balls. Yes, it may sound gross, but let's face it, we all like products that look or feel effective. This skincare line has proven results over time to me.
Besides loving the skincare myself, celebrity makeup artists are cult followers of the skincare and makeup, especially the foundations. They were used on Angelina Jolie in Salt and recently on the cast of The Reasonable Brunch (Demi Moore, Ellen Barkin and Kate Bosworth). Ellen Barkin regularly grabs the products from Alcone in NYC whether she's filming or not. Now KohGenDo's available to us online and in Barneys! Check out the full range of products and let me know if you'd like suggestions... trust me, I've been using all of the skincare and tried all of the cosmetics!
