I have had this Pola Sakura Veil Tokutoku skincare set for a while now. I can’t seem to get my head around it, hence the delay telling you about it. Pola is a range of skincare from Japan that we do not hear much about. One of those brands that fly under the radar, and which are available to those in the know, it would seem.
Interestingly, the reason I agreed to give the brand a go when approached by a local online store, Luscious.com.my, is because a reader, Jayne, had written in a few months ago, asking me if I’d tried Pola skincare and what I thought about it. Not long after that, I had an offer so I thought it was a good chance to try the brand out since I didn’t know where to obtain it before. Jayne, if you’re reading this, here is your answer 😉
I received the Pola Sakura Veil Tokutoku Set I which comes in a well packaged box, containing full sizes of the Wash, Lotion I and Emulsion I and samples sizes of the Hydrating Essence and Massage & Mask. The products are made in Japan, and Pola is a Japanese brand. With that sort of knowledge, what I expected was therefore, a face wash that tends to be a bit drying (I find it happens with most Japanese face washes personally), a lotion that serves to soften and hydrate skin, and a liquid emulsion to moisturize skin. That is really what you do end up getting 😉
The Pola Sakura Veil range contains extract of sakura flower as the name implies, green tea extract (antioxidant protection) and rice bran extract (hydrating). Here are my quick thoughts on the range and the products I tried.
