Japanese Uji Matcha Sheet Masks to be Released by Zeitakubihadado
08.March.2020 | FASHION
Japanese makeup brand Zeitakubihadado™ Matcha de Bihada has announced the release of its new “Matcha de Bihada Premium Sheet Mask” product which will receive pre-sales at select Tokyu Hands and LOFT stores around Japan on March 12, 2020 before its general release.
100% Organic and High Quality Matcha Tea Leaves
Zeitakubihadado™ is very particular when it comes to its products being safe and secure to useーas well as the products being made in Japan. The cosmetic brand has delved deep into its research into what really is good makeup for women. Matcha, which is used in the company’s productsーincluding the new sheet masksーis packed full nutritional elements, including vitamins, minerals, theanine, and catechin, to name a few. It is also an antioxidant, a disinfectant, and is said to provide a relaxing effect. The matcha used in the Matcha de Bihado products is Uji matcha from Kyoto, a type which has garnered attention overseas too, all of which is 100% organic and harvested under strict management. The matcha powder, matcha extract, and hyaluronic acid help to leave the skin smooth and moisturised.
Bacterial Care With 5 Fermented Ingredients
Japanese beauty care has long since been deeply associated with “fermentation.” The Premium Sheet Masks harness the power of this fermentation method with a blend of five ingredients: rice ferment filtrate, soy milk ferment filtrate, collagen ferment filtrate, yogurt filtrate, and fruit juice ferment filtrate . Such fermented ingredients are said to promote the balance of indigenous bacterium in the skin, ensuring the skin stays healthy, smooth, and beautiful.
Opulent Essence & Super Thick Sheets
The essence has a thick texture, and the sheets themselves are extremely thick too which holds the essence together. Because the sheets do not easily drip or turn inside out, and because they fit firmly onto the fate, they are perfect for busy multitaskers out there.
Wash Away Face Pack & Premium Sheet Mask Combination
Those looking to really take care of the skin can get a combination of two Matcha de Bihada items: the Beautiful Face Pack, which keeps your skin clean, and the Premium Sheet Mask, which balances it. Using both will ensure your skin is left soft, moist, and restored. The cosmetic line aims to be one that people will want to continue to use, from early ageing in your 20s to later adulthood.
The sheet mask is easy to use: simply even out the entire sheet while it’s still in the pack with both your hands to that it is uniform all over. Remove from the pack, and turn up the outside from the eye part. Layer onto your face, making sure it’s correctly lined up with your eyes and mouth. Leave for 5 minutes and then remove. Rub in the essence left on your face. It’s recommended that you do this 1-2 times a week.
Try the new Matcha de Bihada sheet masks yourself and see the real benefits of Uji matcha.

Since opening, it has become the talk of the town in Harajuku.
It’s comprised of three floors, each with their own highlights. Let’s go and check it out.
1st Floor: A Hall of Fame for the latest most popular cosmetics
When you walk into the first floor area, the first thing that’s sure to catch your eye is the incredible “Best Cosmetic Award Tower,” a collection of items that have have won past cosmetic awards for being the best. All the cosmetics are stacked up high in their own little display case.
As you proceed further across the shop floor, there is the “@cosme Weekly Ranking” corner which ranks the most popular items on the website for that week, so customers can always know what products are the best to incorporate into their makeup and beauty routine.
But perhaps the centrepiece of @cosme TOKYO is the “Tester Bar,” where customers are free to try out products using the puffs and cotton pads provided. There’s also a tap and sink for rinsing. You can’t deny how great this service is; without worrying about others, you can try out all the cosmetics to your heart’s desire and then buy them if they’re to your liking.
There are also smart lockers so you can lock your things away, allowing for your hands to be free while you test makeup and shop. But it doesn’t stop there, as there’s even a foreign currency exchange machine which caters for 85 currencies in 120 countries.
2nd Floor: Men’s cosmetics, beauty equipment, and more
Up on the second floor, you’ll find another area that ranks products, this time the ones with the most sales at @cosme TOKYO. Everything is displayed in such a way that it’s easy to find products as they are separated by base makeup, mascara, lipsticks, and so on. You’ll find pop artwork hand drawn by the staff to highlight products, so enjoy comparing and considering all the different items.
Recently in Japan, men’s products have been garnering attention, and so @cosme have created an entire section dedicated to male and unisex makeup items. Picking out makeup with your partner is goals, and now it’s finally becoming a reality.
Another area that’s popularーwith both Japanese people and foreignersーis one that stocks cosmetics made with naturally-derived ingredients from Japan, as well as products with Japanese-style packaging. It’s perfect if you’re looking for Japanese-specific items or for gifts and souvenirs.
Also on the second floor are beauty mirrors so you can check yourself out as well as two Tester Bars, so you can try out products here too.
If you have kids, you can drop them off in the kid’s area while you shop. There’s also bread-feeding rooms and places for changing diapers. They have it all!
3rd Floor: A place to relax exclusive to @cosme app users
The third floor is home to a lounge that can only be used by those who have the @cosme app installed on their phone. It can be used for relaxing or for hanging out with friends. It’s hard to find a such a quiet and relaxing place like this so close to Harajuku Station.
If you want to retouch your makeup, there’s a powder space you can do that for free, as well as oxygen boxes. This floor is packed full of different great services.
@cosme also has its own points system. One point equals one yen, and you get five for just visiting the store.
Anyone and everyone can enjoy a fun and easy shopping experience

Then add a bold and shiny purple shadow on top of that across your eyelids. Apply to your lower eyelid too beneath the pupil. If the outline of your eyeshadow has an oblong shape when you open your eye, that’s good.
Step ③: Eyeliner
Eyeliner to look like a sophisticated queen
Using a black liquid eyeliner, follow your eyeline from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye. Extend the outer line a little and make it parallel. For your lower eyelid, use a black pencil to fill between your eyelashes.
Step ④: Lipstick
Pink lips ready to sing
Use a blueish-pink lipstick on your lips, and make sure it’s layered on nice and thick to serve that sweet aesthetic.
An elegant queen that can harness the ice and the snow
Elsa has the power to turn anything she touches into ice. If you catch a gaze of her enchanting purple eyeshadowed eyes, your heart is sure to skip a beat. If you follow these four makeup points, you too can easily look like the ice queen herself. A perfect look for dates, parties and get-togethers this winter season.
The long-awaited sequel to Disney’s blockbuster animated is finally upon us. The first Frozen film touched the entire world with its frosty beauty with both its story and music. Let It Go in particular was a worldwide phenomenon, and was an immense hit in Japan too.
Frozen 2 sees Elsa embark on a dangerous journey with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven as she discovers why she was born with magical powers, the answer to which is threatening her kingdom.
