On one of my favourite Asian sites, www.imomoko.com 
there’s a brand called Naruko that has the weirdest names. First of all, Raw Job’s Tears Brightening Treatment (below), which turns out is only weird to my ears because is a pretty well known food ingredient in Japan and otherwise known as Coix Seeds or Chinese Pearl Barley. They’ve also got Rose And Snow Fungus Classic Hydrating Gelly (above) which I was convinced was made-up. It isn’t – there really is a Snow Fungus, aka White Jelly Mushroom. I love discovering new and exotic ingredients although I’m not sure I would ever put the word fungus in a beauty treatment.
