It cleanse really well without any irritation...That's all I am asking for.
As far as the cleaning goes, I really like this cleansing foam -- it gets very foamy with just a little bit of product :) I have the entire line and I don't feel that it did much for me as far as "brightening" goes, and for the price, it was an okay product
Loved the foaming action of this cleanser. Got it in a sample kit, but it dried out my sensitive skin after only one use. Did not remove my light makeup as I had hoped. Thought I'd try it on a whim - promptly went back to the store, returned!
I bought this over a week ago, and to my surprise, it has become a HG cleanser for me! I know, $45CND for a cleanser, I must be nuts, right? Well, I'm glad I bought it! It cleans my skin and makes it smooth and not dry [after i take off my makeup with my shu uemura cleansing oil]. This leaves my skin super clean and not dry! It is amazing. It even got rid of those nasty dry spots I had on my forehead and cheecks, and keeps my skin hydrated and not tight-feeling. I follow it up with my White Lucent Emulsion SPF16, and my skin is ready for makeup!!
I highly recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin, who can't use anything harsh, but wants their skin feeling clean without any drying effects.
I generally tend to like Shiseido's products quite a bit, and this one is no exception. It's a good foamy cleanser and doesn't leave a reside or overstrip my skin. However, I seriously doubt it's on the skin long enough to have any real brightening ability. But it's a good cleanser nonetheless.
Use LESS than a pea-sized amount! A TINY bit goes a long way.
No filmy residue, and I feel like it tightens my pores! My face does look slightly brightened after the wash. I use this in conjunction with the softener and moisturizing gel. I love all Shiseido cleansers - never harsh, always pleasant-smelling, too.
My favorite cleanser. No whitening or brightening effect, but I was not looking for that. Leaves no residue or film like The Skincare line's Extra Gentle Foaming Cleanser and does not irritate my skin like the The Skincare line's other cleansers. RInses off squeaky clean and is suprisingly non-irritating and non-drying on my sensitive, thin skin. I only like foaming cleansers, and this is the best out of all I've tried. It is comparable in price to the Benefiance Foaming Cleanser (another love) but feels less heavy and is more gentle. I follow up with the Pureness toner (another favorite) and could not be happier.
I use this product with the SPF Moisturizer and I'm really happy with it. I use the foam once a day in the morning because I have really dry skin and using a cleansing product more than once a day usually does not result in good things. My skin really does feel dewy and clean after use and I haven't had any problems with redness or breakouts. It is a little expensive, but I only use a little dot each day, so one tube lasts a while.
i use this with White Lucent Brightening Refining Softener - Enriched and White Lucent Brightening Protective Moisturizer SPF 16 PA++. this cleanser is creamy and foams well with just a pea size amount to cleanse both face and neck. i find that while it is expensive for a tube of this it does last me quite a while, maybe 6 months with a 2-3x a day usage. it removes my makeup quite well (powder foundation, concealer, eyeliner, but not wp mascara), it has a pleasant smell (nothing overpowering), i don't get an allergic reaction using this, it leaves my skin dewy, smooth and bright. it doesn't lighten my skin or scars but makes my skin less dull. imo i don't have the best skin but i have been complimented on having great skin. i'm a germaphobe and i feel quite clean using this.
i have mixed feelings about this cleanser. when i first used it, my face turned red and irritated and peely. i waited for my skin to settle down before i tried it again, thinking the change in weather irritated my skin and only used it once a day. when i used it this time, it cleaned my skin, didn't irritate it, and slightly lightened some old acne scars though I am still breaking out.
this gets a 3/5 because it has pretty packaging and it did lighten old acne scars and did my skin good for a while. however it was expensive and i didn't see a much of an improvement in my skin or decrease in pimples.
