I’m a huge fan of Good Morning America, I watch about the first 15 minutes every morning before leaving for work, so I get caught up on current affairs, and that’s about it. One thing Good Morning America is known for is their Deals & Steals segment, where brands sell products at deeply discounted prices, with a promo code, just for GMA watchers. My Mom is a huge fan of this segment, and thought of me when GMA featured the brand Tokyo Milk one morning. She got me a bunch of Tokyo Milk goodies, shoutout to my momma, and I’m taking the time today and tomorrow to review them for you all! I think these products are perfect for gift giving this holiday season, they’re luxurious products that don’t break the bank.
I had never heard of Tokyo Milk before my Mom mentioned them to me, so I was, of course, excited to try out a new brand. Tokyo Milk is a brand by Margot Elena, and upon visiting the website, I noticed that they’re affiliated with brands I’ve seen at Anthropologie. So, to me, that means they’re pretty darn good. Tokyo Milk has a great Indie boutique vibe, and the packaging is awesome. It’s mostly a perfume brand, and can be found at Sephora and Morphe, but I’m focusing on reviewing some of their moisturizers today, they’re much more in the gift giving price range!
First product up is their Gin & Rosewater Bon Bon Shea Butter Lotion. OMG, this smells so amazing and comforting. It’s a strong rosewater scent with an edge of citrus. I love, love, love the packaging- perfect for gift giving this holiday season, or a little self indulgence. The quality of the butter lotion is awesome too, my hands feel super treated after using it, and I can still feel the hydration a while after using it. I’ve been keeping it in my car so I can use some whenever I’m on the go. Added bonus, it makes the car smell great too!
The next product is another hand moisturizer, the Awaken Within Shea Butter Handcreme. Once again the packaging is gorgeous, and this product sits on my night stand, as a little morning or nighttime hydration. The jasmine notes are powerful in this lotion, so make sure you love jasmine & orange blossom (I personally love it) if you choose this product. The shea butter creme is meant to pair with the Awaken Within perfume, which I’m sure is incredible. The perfume & butter creme combo would make an amazing holiday gift for a bestie or sister!
The last product for today is the Tokyo Milk Radiant Glow Moisturizer– a newer product for the brand. It’s basically a highlight that you can put anywhere on your face for a little pick me up. Seriously, you can put it anywhere, cheeks & shoulders to highlight or eyes & lips for brightening. & huge bonus: it has moisturizing properties with avocado oil and cucumber extract, so not only will it give you a highlight/ glow it’s also keeping you hydrated too! Def keep this in your bag when you move from work to happy hour. All you need sometimes is the tiniest bit of glow, not more face makeup to completely change your look. The formula for this is awesome too, a little goes a long way, and you can easily build it up if you need to. I’ve been using my finger to apply the Radiant Glow but you can also use a small crease eyeshadow brush to apply it anywhere.
As I mentioned above, you can find Tokyo Milk products in a few different places. Their website has all of the products, but you can find some at DermStore.com, Sephora, and Morphe too! Def take a look through what they offer, I think it’s a great gift idea because it’s a unique brand with high quality products in its lineup. Stay tuned for next week, where I will feature two of Tokyo Milk’s makeup products!
