Makanai Cosmetics To Release Adorable Pikachu Hand Cream and Lip Balm for Winter

02.November.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

Kagurazaka, Tokyo-based cosmetics brand Makanai Cosmetics (Makanai Cosume) is set to launch their autumn-themed yuzu citrus and honey series on November 20, 2020. The new series is coming in Pokémon-themed designs to celebrate the grand opening of the new Pokémon centre in Kanazawa on the same day.

 

The roots of Makanai Cosmetics can be traced to Kanazawa, making it a fitting celebration. The new Pokémon series will be available from cosmetics shops, Makanai Cosmetics Official Online shop, Pokémon centers across Japan and from the official Pokémon Center online shop.

 

The new yuzu citrus and honey series includes hand creams and lip balms perfect for those who suffer from dry skin and lips during the cold winter months.

Secret Recipe Hand Cream: ¥1,800 (Regular Size, 40g)/¥780 (Mini Size, 10g) *Prices Before Tax

The hand cream is made from a specially crafted recipe and includes a unique beauty ingredient called “KaESS”. KaESS was discovered in a gold leaf shop in Kanazawa. It is produced from a natural paste used in the process of making gold leaf. This hand cream is one of Makanai Cosmetic’s popular picks during the winter months due to its ability to lock in moisture without leaving a sticky feeling.

Yuzu Citrus and Honey Lip Balm 5g: ¥1,800 (Before Tax)

The lip balm is filled with natural ingredients such as shea butter, sunflower oil and jojoba oil to protect your lips against cold and dry conditions, leaving them softer and fuller. You can even apply the lip balm to other areas of your face and hands that are susceptible to the cold such as the tips of your fingers and below your eyes. The small size makes it easy to carry and store in a small beauty pouch.

An adorable Pikachu can be seen staring at a luscious drop of yuzu citrus on the packaging. The refreshing citrusy smell and adorable Pikachu packaging is sure to warm your heart during the cold winter months.
