Yoji-ya's Cosmetic Product

Yoji-ya is Beauty Products shop in Kyoto, founded in 1904. Among many popular items such as abura-tori-gami (oil blotting facial papers), I want to recommend this product called "Kinuko." It's a body towel/face towel made by silk. Scrub your body and wash your face with this towel (no need to use soap!) and you will be impressed with the results!!
