Somewhere in Japan, Chizu Saeki is laughing really hard.
Anyway, in Saeki’s The Japanese Skincare Revolution, she says the lotion mask is one of the best things for your skin. She suggests the Miss Webril cotton pads, but I couldn’t find any. For the lotion, I decided to go ahead and buy the one pictured in the book: Nars Hydrating Freshening Lotion (I got it from beauty.com at 20 percent off through some drugstore.com promotion). She says to add a quarter-size amount of the lotion to the pad, but the pad seemed to soak it up really quickly. I’ll keep trying this for a while, but I don’t have a ton of patience, so we’ll see what happens.
