Domo Arigato!

I was 11 years old in 1982 when I saw Styx’ Kilroy was Here concert tour! It still goes down as one of the greatest shows I have ever seen! “Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto” was my first introduction to all things Japanese (well omitting the Mr. Roboto part). Years later came my love of sushi and now I’m here to talk about a line of skin care from Japan that will ‘rock your world!’

Koh Gen Doh is that company and their Oriental Plants Clean Foam and Macro Vintage Eye Treatment are the two products that I am raving about today.

The Cleansing foam froths so nicely, is so gentle on the skin and lasts a ridiculously long time. All you need is a pea size amount, add water and wash your face to reveal beautiful, healthy skin. Available online at or directly from the Koh Gen Do website (see link above), this will set you back $45, but well worth it I assure you!

The Macro Vintage Eye Treatment is off the charts amazing. Available only from their website directly (see link above) or from, this item is on the pricier side. Before I reveal the price, I feel compelled to say it is by far the best eye cream I have ever used! Not only does it smooth the fine lines around my eyes, my skin stays hydrated (not greasy) all day, my make up goes on even better than before (and stays on) and my eyes appear brighter and more rested. The tube should last you a really long time because all you need is the size of a grain of rice for both eyes. Now here is the bad news, the product sells for $138, however when you order from Koh Gen Do directly they have a promotions tab which usually offers great deals and they always seem to send great samples with your online order.

This being a new year and all I just want to remind everyone to take a little time to do something nice for yourself. Whether its soaking in a hot tub, getting a massage, or using a great product, TRUTHisBEAUT-E is all about putting aside a couple of minutes a day to take care of ‘you!’

Here’s to a Happy and Healthy 2014!

    Sorry, I got so excited about Koh gen doh that I started rambling in Japanese! You save us time and money by doing all this research for us so I am so thankful to you. Will order mine today!!!!

  3. Do you use it at night and day? Is it much better than the fabulous origins eye cream you posted once and that I love??? DO tell????

    • I use them both day and night! I really like the plantscription line from Origins, but I’ve switched to these! I find a difference! I love them and my skin seems to love them too!

  4. “Take a little time and do something nice for yourself” Wise words from a lady that knows her beauty products. Keep spreading the wisdom! And have a happy new year!!
