Bottle of wine (for skin care)

It is obvious that I really enjoy Taiwanese skin care products. They are like a cross-over between the Japanese and Chinese beauty world. Rice wine, also known as Sake in Japanese, is already a popular ingredient in Japanese skin care for quite some time. 

Sake contains ferulic acid which is a type of vitamin e. It also has kojic acid, which is brightening and is often found in skin lightening products. In Japan it has been used as a toner since many generations. It is said that geishas took sake baths to keep their skin smooth and white.
This product is by a Taiwanese brand called Bihada, the packaging description is in Taiwanese and Japanese.

How to use: Soak a cotton pad with the toner and gently wipe your face with it. You can leave it on longer on fine lines and dry patches. 
I prefer to use this after a warm shower. My skin feel tighter and refreshed. Great product!
You can also buy a bottle of sake (an actual wine bottle) and use it as a toner, or add it to your bath.
I just find the plastic bottle is very light and convenient to use. And yes, of course, my face smells like alcohol after using it but the smell disappears quickly.
