♥Posted by Aya

There are so many wonderful souvenirs in Kyoto that you can’t decide what to buy.

If you are looking for a souvenir to give to women, how about cosmetics with traditional techniques and aesthetic sense of Kyoto?

Many of them look cute and you will want them for yourself.

This time, I will introduce a shop where you can buy Kyoto cosmetics.♡



Kyoto Silk

Among Maiko and Geiko, it is said that brushing the skin with silk makes the skin smooth, white and beautiful.

Because of this beauty technique, Kyoto Silk is particular about cosmetics which aim for fine skin like Maiko.

 

Silk Puff
Silk puff, which has been a long-selling product since its establishment, is an item that uses silk to remove dirt that cannot be removed by just washing your face with your hands.

Excess sebum and keratin are also removed, and the makeup gets better. There are various patterns, so you can enjoy looking for your favorite one.

This puff was made based on the founder’s real experience. It was created by the founder, who had a skin problem, remembering that his mother told him about a maiko who polishes her skin with leftover kimono cloth.

 

The body towel made of silk is perfect for those who want to choose the one that is gentle to the skin because it is for daily use.

Other than that, the original Maiko pattern series is also popular. The hand cream has the fragrance of eucalyptus extract and you can feel refreshed and relaxed.
