Shiseido Waso Silky Smooth Mochi Mask

This mochi-textured DIY mask by Shiseido is a treat for your senses and will leave your skin silky smooth and glowing like a goddess. A fun and unique formulation, mix the powder together with the liquid agent to create a fresh mask each time that adheres perfectly to your skin.

The combination of the active ingredients creates a 30-40˚C heat for five minutes that helps to circulate blood flow and enhances your skin’s ability to absorb later products.
