Cherry blossom petals blow through the air like a snowstorm in the spring. They can also help your skin in the season when the winter dryness ends and excess oil begins to be a problem. Sakura oil blotting paper (¥367 for a package of 30) are highly absorbent sheets for your face available in four sweet pastel colors—a single stroke can help clear up your skin. And when summer comes and there are no more sakura to see, you can always carry pocketful of spring with you.
