After daily facial cleansing, dispense about a teaspoon of this exfoliating mask onto a wet palm to creating a creamy & muddy paste

Then, massage the paste formed onto face & neck in a circular motion. Ohh yes, to avoiding the eyes area. Do leave the botanicals goodness on face for 2 mins before rinse thoroughly with water ya ๐Ÿ’ฆ Personally she loves the natural ingredients’ fragrant while massaging the exfoliate paste on her face & neck. She loves the smooth soft feeling on skin after each usage

Note๐Ÿ“Œ: DO NOT add too much water, else it will be very runny & no scrubby effects. Also DO NOT let the mask sit on face more than 2 minutes too

Slightly damp lips, then scoop out a 10 cent size of lip scrub using the spatula provided. Next, slowly massage lips ๐Ÿ‘„ with the scrub.

Skinn Elemento do not formulate its products in a very big bottles/ sizes. Since all its products are made upon order, itโ€™s the BEST to use once receiving it. If use regularly & according to suggested instruction, each products will last around 2 to 2.5 months as each is without chemical stabiliser, filler or preservatives. Some color changes might occur in scrub over time & itโ€™s normal due to its all natural plant/fruit pigmented. Itโ€™s still safe to be used & serve its purposes.

Things To Do @ Iwate Prefecture

SiennyLovesDrawing has recently read online about the ONLY lone surviving tree ๐ŸŒณ of the Takata Pine Forest from the Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami in 2011 in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ—พ

This 250-year-old “miracle” pine is the only 1 among 70K trees left standing along the town’s coastline after the disaster. Actually it’s initially survived, but was removed last Sept after its roots died from exposure to saltwater

Now a reconstruction of it stands at its place. Some young pine trees are growing again along the city’s coastline ๐Ÿ—พ & thanks to the great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป restore efforts

.

Mr Isrami has highly recommended Geibikei & must be one in the top listโ€ผ๏ธ Geibikei is a gorge located in Ichinoseki area of Iwate. It’s with beautiful scenery of red, orange and yellow color of autumn leaves ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ on the cliff & both sides of the river during autumn with a boat ๐Ÿ›ถ ride which steered by local Japanese. Easy ๐Ÿšƒ access by taking train to JR Geibikei station & walk for about 5 mins. More info via ๐ŸŒ http://www.geibikei.co.jp/en/index.html

.

For hiking ๐Ÿฅพโ›ฐ๏ธ lovers , Mt. Iwate is the tallest mountain in Iwate prefecture. It is 2,038m tall & can be seen all the way from Aomori Perfecture. It gets snow before most of the other mountains & snow can been seen on it from Oct onward every year

Ms Doris has recommended Hiraizumi for Chuson-ji Buddhist Temple listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, itโ€™s a place not to be missed when visiting Iwate @ Tohoku, Japan. More info via http://www.chusonji.or.jp/en/ . Also to visit the Motsuji Temple which possess 1 of the few remaining Pure Land Gardens in Japan, ie. a popular garden style in ancient times & attempting to recreate the Buddhist concept of the Pure Land or โ€œBuddhist Paradiseโ€. More info via http://hiraizumi.or.jp/en/archive/sightseeing/motsuji.html

Hachimantai, it’s a scenic spot in the Iwate Prefecture which shared by Ms Doris in her session. There is a mountain which stands at an altitude of 1,614m & straddles the Akita & Iwate prefectures, it has a plateau around it which has been designated as Towada Hachimantai National Park with seasonal flowers from spring to autumn & snowing in winter. Not to miss the Kagaminuma on the Hachimantai mountaintop promenade aka Dragon Eye when the snow melts from mid-May to mid-June. About 2 hours by bus from JR Morioka Station to Hachimantai & Kagaminuma

Hachimantai Aspite Line Snow Corridor is a 27km mountain sightseeing road that runs through Towada-Hachimantai National Park straddling Iwate & Akita. 1 of the best roads in Japan for a scenic drive with impressively high walls of snow on both sides. The snow walls which can reach a height of 6m. Note: It may be closed during winter due to heavy snow as shown via https://www.facebook.com/Visit.My.Japan/posts/1823397997811059

Ms Doris also recommends Jodogahama Beach aka โ€œPure Land Beachโ€ which located within Sanriku Geopark in Iwate Prefecture. The clear blue water, white rocks & green pines actually listed in Japan’s 100 Best Beaches of Japan
The Koiwai Farm ๅฐๅฒฉไบ•่พฒๅ ด as recommended by Mr Isrami to visit for its Mt Iwate backdrop & a agrotourism destination in Iwate, Tohoku. A 3000-hectare private farm since 1891 located scenically at the base of Mt.
