One of the girls on the Beauty Collection blogging team, Claudia [who I now consider a good friend - you can also check out her blog at I Like To Talk A Lot] introduced me to her contact with Kawaii TOKYO. He is also the contact person for Le Edge. I've seen Le Edge around and sadly have not tried it yet but have heard some awesome reviews about it. Anyway, I am super stoked to be given the chance to review some new skincare products.
Kawaii TOKYO is a beauty brand that launched in Japan to embody the essence of Tokyo's pop culture with their multi beneficial skincare products. What does the word Kawaii mean? Kawaii in the Japanese language means 'charming' and 'adorable' - which is absolutely suitable for the name of this skincare line. Kawaii TOKYO has become the first line of Japan produced skincare products to earn certification under the "Halal" standards of Islamic Law. All of Kawaii TOKYO products are certified under the Islamic Law standards of 'Halal' and FREE from animal-based ingredients and alcohol.
Kawaii TOKYO's Brighten Up skincare line was designed for women who live active lifestyles. The Brighten Up skincare line uses ingredients such as; EGF [Epidermal Growth Factor] - eliminates spots and helps stimulate skin resilience, Arbutin - prevents the formation of melanin and brightens the skin by inhibiting tyrosinase, Aldenin - to protect skin from free radical damage, and Marine Collagen - diminishes signs of aging. Not to mention the natural ingredients of fruit and plant extracts. With ingredients like this, who wouldn't want to try these products?
