Simply beautiful. I was really impressed with its elegance. It also has a practical feature that it can extend the length easily.

Price 

Retail  $23

About the product

Rice bran has been traditionally used for skin care in Japan.
It looks almost like food, very different from ordinary skincare products. I was skeptical if it would really work as cleanser (face wash).. The staff showed me how to use. He put waterproof mascara (sorry the photo was missing) on his hand, took a teaspoonful of the face wash, poured another teaspoon of water, mixed them till it became loose paste and applied to the mascara hand, it worked beautifully.
Furthermore, it helps keep moisture on your face even after wash.
