I am just about to run out of this stuff, and that's after 13 entire months of using the same tube! To me, that's unbeatable value for money.
I bought this cleanser for its purported brightening effects, but sadly haven't noticed any change in my slight freckles (melasma). However, it foams really nicely and after using it, my skin feels soft, and cleaner than other cleansers I have used. Plus it doesn't dry out my dry skin even further. I tend to avoid foaming cleansers due to their drying effect, but I don't have that problem with this one. I tend to moisturise quite heavily though. I am quite sure I will repurchase.
I always loved shiseido cleansing foams. I have just recently switched to the white lucent from benefiance which I also love. I am a product of the seventies when tanning was the thing. Unfortunate for me as I am Irish pale . I overdosed on the sun and now pay the price with dark spots and bad texture. This foam is really more a creamy creamy little luxury. It feels so nice and cushiony and just a drop is needed. I also purchased the eyecream and moisurizer they are working well for me so far meaning my skin is looking brighter and less dull. I dont think I have used it long enough to address the dark spot problem.
I like this cleanser, as it cleanses really well.The downside is that it really tightens the skin even though my skin is oily.A little goes a long way especially when used with a brush i only need like even less than a pea size and it creates a foam like crazy, so for the price its actually a good buy.The brightening effect, i didnt notice but i think a cleanser-on its own- wont be that much of a help.
I really wanted to love this cleanser, but it ended up clogging my pores!
Pros: A little bit goes a long way--one drop plus water and friction and this cleanser produces the most beautiful, luxurious foam ever! It removes make up well and my skin felt very soft after using it.
Cons: I didn't notice any brightening of my skins overall appearance nor specific dark spot brightening-and that was using the entire line. It also cause me to have congested, clogged pores--I am prone to being oily so that turns into a big big problem for me.
I still think that this is a great cleanser, just not for me. Sensitive, dry, and combo skins may enjoy this but if you have a serious dark spot problem or tend to congest easily, try something different.
My sister gave this to me as a gift. It is very smooth and creamy. I like that it lathers a lot even if I only use just a penny size of drop. It is supposed to whiten dark spots so that is a big plus!
A great cleanser that cleans very good but does not dry the skin. I also love Benefiance creamy cleanser but now it's just my 2nd favorite. It's expensive but a tube will last for a long time, a little amount lathers well. It does not aggravate my oily t-zone, it balances my skin. Skin looks healthy after a wash. I've also tried Future Solution cleanser and this White Lucent performs similarly. Since White Lucent is the cheaper option, this is the one I'll be repurchasing often.
I loved this product and was looking for a drugstore/cheaper alternative. After lots of purchasing and searching, I have found the product at a fraction of the price $2.80! Check out my blog for more information:
I dare you to try it! ;)
it works great for oily skin. it leaves a clean, somehow tight feeling after. the smell is great. i would not recommend this on people with dry/ normal skin.
This is a great cleanser i must say ! Been using it for 5-6 years due to the amount of blackheads and oily skin that not many cleansers on the market seem to work well into lather for me but this one sure does ! And again sure a lil goes a long way. You can use less then a pea size and it will work into a rich foam for your face. LOVE IT !
Only that the packaging looks cheap because the lotion and moisturiser bottle that was made out of glass looks really luxury. But everyone knows that nothing comes for free so the price to buy this is fairly reasonable.
NOTE : After using it for so long , my skin is almost blemish free :) blackheads, pigmentation have faded , spots and pimple free :D
