Editor's Picks: 5 Japanese Cherry Blossom Beauty Products
Posted on April 01 2020
April has come, Cosme Hunters! The birds are singing, the sun’s staying out longer and the trees are even starting to bud! While April is no May, there is still an awful lot of springtime fun to be had. There’s no better time to have floral products on the mind!
It’s Cherry Blossom Season!
Right now, all across Japan, trees have begun to go pink! Whether you know cherry blossom (or Sakura) flowers from beautiful photographs, D.C. in spring or only movies there is no better place to enjoy them than Japan. Sakura peeping season is more hype than autumn leaves in New England, and tons of J-Beauty products are inspired by them!
To get everyone feeling the spring excitement, I went looking for the prettiest, freshest, and most inspired floral products I could find. From using sakura essence right from the source to just having a nice flowery theme, here are the top five products my sakura-mania is asking for.
#5- Ichikami Revitalizing Shampoo
Hair still bouncing back from winter? Here comes Ichikami’s light and floral revitalizing shampoo! Beneath the soft and elegant packaging, this blends a whole meadow of flowers into one delightful lather. Look out for tree peony, tsubaki, blackberry lily, and good old cherry blossom!

#4- Opera Lip Tint N
Taking a step away from shampoo, let’s talk about Opera’s fantastic Lip Tint N! Our blog recently featured a fantastic article that shows off the beauty and elegance of this powerful J-Beauty brand. But getting back to our flower hunt, this line of lipstick is a fantastic way to add some pinks and oranges to your warm springtime look.
Frankly, I’m quite taken with the elegant array of colors here. Floral looks can take all sorts of shapes and forms, and cherry-picking the color that works best for you is a must. Each and every color is lush and gentle, but my personal favorite is the orange. Sometimes the best way to accentuate all your pink is a little something different!

#3- Shiseido Brightening Gel Cream
Shiseido’s representative in today’s list is a moisturizing cream that aims to be light, fight dullness, and use natural ingredients wisely. At its core is the SAKURA-Bright Complex- its a pretty cool name, right?
This three-ingredient system actually makes use of a good number of natural extracts and ingredients to reach its impressive results. These include potentilla, yoshino cherry blossoms, western hawthorn extracts, plumeria scent, and other green floral elements. Yet again, it’s a veritable bouquet with cherry blossom sitting right at its core with its uplifting influence!

I think few cultures are as qualified to tap into its lush and beautiful power to bring you healthy and wholesome beauty! Of course, there was one K-Beauty product, but who can see cherry blossoms and not think of Japan?
That’s all for me! I’m happy you read it all through and am excited to keep bringing you springtime beauty as we reach the peak. Till next time, stay fresh and have some safe fun at home!
