Shu Uemura Kimono a la Mode
It's Spring! At last and nothing is more spring-like than the traditional blossom paintings of Japan. Perfect timing then for an art collaboration between beauty company Shu Uemura and contemporary kimono artist Mamechiyo.
I went to an event the other evening to be introduced to this gorgeously collectable range of emblematic cleansing oils and UV under base mousses, each with a different spring bloom design. And check out that gorgeous palette design too!
I'm a fan of Shu Uemura anyway so having a couple of these to grace my bathroom shelves makes me so happy and I really do like the products too.
The cleansing oil is a bit of a legendary product and a bottle is sold every 15 seconds around the world. It was developed when Shu Uemura, while working backstage at the Hollywood Movie Studios in the 1950's discovered a cleansing oil called UNMASKED. He was so impressed by it's efficacy and the fact that it was so popular with the starlets of the time that he dedicated himself to advancing the potential of this iconic cleansing oil.
