Pehchaolin cream

Skin care cream Pehchaolin is making a comeback in China after Peng Liyuan presented an assortment of products from the previously out-of-fashion brand as a State gift during a foreign tour with President Xi Jinping. The cream, sold in little blue and yellow tins, is now riding a wave of popularity among young, trendy women who used to favor foreign brands. China's first lady Peng Liyuan has received attention not only for her attire, but also for her good-will activities during State visits with President Xi Jinping. Her soft-toned diplomatic gestures and her use of home-made brands have boosted China's image and set the Internet abuzz.

Here, let's have a look at seven home-made brands used by the first lady that have attracted lots of attention on the web.
