Long time, no see, everyone!
It’s Lady Sudachi here.
The weather has gotten progressively colder and winter is now right at our doorsteps.
At this time of year the air can get very cold and dry, and it can be very harsh on women’s skin.
Why not make use of your time in Japan to try some of the local brands.
There are many well-known brands, but this time I’d like to introduce you to a brand called ‘Chifure’.
Chifure is one of the more inexpensive brands of cosmetics on the market right now, but it has a surprisingly high quality behind its low cost.
Chifure products cost around 1,000 yen at their most expensive and you can get many basic types of cosmetics for just 600 yen. They are scent-free and use no artificial coloring, and are known for being gentle to your skin. What’s more, the labels are clearly marked with the date of production and the ingredients so you know exactly what you are using.
Chifure products are also environmentally friendly. Once you buy a certain product, you can use the same bottle it comes in by simply buying refill packs. Refills are even cheaper than the original, bottled products, so you can make a saving here as well.
Chifure is a very easy brand of cosmetics to use and can be helpful for those who aren’t sure which brand to go with or who are looking for something light and easy to carry while on a trip.
In Tokushima, you can buy Chifure products from the seventh floor of the Sogo Department Store in Tokushima City. Most other general drug stores stock their products as well.
Please give it a go!
