In celebration of Cherry Blossom Season, Hada Labo Tokyo is sponsoring a full size product giveaway to YOU my readers!
In Japan, cherry blossoms, or sakura, start in the south and make their way in a beautiful bloom up the country. Depending on the year, this happens anytime between mid-March and mid-April. The Japanese people celebrate this short but brilliant blooming season with a festival called hanami, in which friends and families gather under the sakura to feast and appreciate the flowering trees.
As the US version of one of Japan’s best-selling skincare brands, Hada Labo Tokyo’s packaging features cherry blossoms inspired by a specific branch growing in Kyoto, Japan.
The United States has several cherry blossom festivals to commemorate the season, starting with the largest in Washington D.C. featuring trees originally gifted from Japan as a sign of friendship between our two countries. Georgia residents and visitors can enjoy Macon’s 32nd Annual Cherry Blossom Festival, while both Brooklyn Botanic Garden and San Francisco's Japantown offer their own unique takes on the season.
Many of you will recall back in October, I mentioned the Hada Labo Tokyo as the NEW "Japanese Beauty Phenomenon" launching here in the states. I particularly focused on the, Replenishing Hydrator, as the star product, which is sold every 2 seconds in Japan! I've been using it rather regularly, and LOVE it! Therefore, I thought this would be the perfect product to giveaway to my readers and the folks at Hada Labo Public Relations were kind enough to add the plumping gel, which I also mentioned in my write-up. So here we go.
