DHCオリーブすべすべセット・Olive Essential Set

Hey guys! How are you? Today I am going to talk about the DHC Olive Essential Set. I recently bought the mini set to try out (available at 7-11 for ¥950). I have been suffering some pretty dry skin this winter and have been trying out different things to help relieve it. The kit comes with the face stuff as well as two hair product samples. I haven't tried the hair stuff mainly because I am happy with my current hair care. Isn't the package cute??

Basically, you start with the deep cleansing oil. You apply it to dry skin and use it to "wash" your face. I rub in circles for about 30 seconds including my eye area. Honestly, you probably shouldn't do that, but it removes my mascara no problem. Once done, I rinse with warm water. You follow with the mild soap. Lather up in your hands. I again gently wash my face for about 30 seconds in circular motions and then rinse. You follow with the mild lotion. This is a toner. Lotion typically means toner with Japanese face products. Don't ask me why. Anyway, it feels nice! I pat it on with my hands. Don't use too much. Last is the Olive Virgin Oil. You only need one or two drops. Rub in your hands to warm up and then apply to your face in a patting motion. I follow these steps, as the English website states that is how it should be done.

I am so far satisfied with this stuff. My skin has been reacting to a bunch of stuff lately and it really seems to be helping. I also use the Olive Virgin Oil in the morning before my make up. My face feels much better throughout the day. My forehead looked like dried paper in my mind before. Now it is more "alive" I guess you could say. Anyway, I plan to buy the regular set soon.

Well that is all for now. I am preparing for my Winter Holiday. Super stoked. Two weeks off (although it's more like one week with all the stuff I have to do...). Be safe everyone!
