I have been using the gift set that they sell in Sephora… I have been using it for about 3 or so months now after a horrible experience with Aveda. My skin tends to be dry, yet oily and shiny on the surface. I am also the unfortunate sufferer of HUGE PORE syndrome.
At first this line worked miracles on my skin. The aveda product caused these itty bitty red dots all over my face (mostly the cheek area) and after a trip to the derm I started using this shiseido line and my face cleared up within days. HOWEVER< after 3 months of use my face seems to be getting pretty oily and im getting more red dots around my face… Whey cant I find a face regime that continuously works? Perhaps this is all hormonal. I still have quite a bit left and I plan on giving it another two weeks to see if things get better…
So far I have put that i would rebuy it simply because of the initial effect it had on my skin... im hoping that the breakouts are hormonal... I will adjust rating if they do not go away. NOT an HG, unfortunately
this is a great product if you have sensitive skin i love that it foams up a lot and that the foam is really rich & creamy- i dont use it too often because it doesnt do much for blemishes but if i tried a harsh cleanser or something like that i usully follow it up the next couple of days with this gentle cleanser continued >>
I am overall pleased with this product. Pros: Its very basic and foams rather nicely. It smells really good too. The tube is very sleak and has a flip cap which is really convenient. A small pea size is needed. One tube lasts a long time. Cons: it costs 28 dollars which is a little high for me. Also, it doesnt take all my make up off. I have to use a seperate makeup remover before.
I would buy this product again if it wasnt so expensive. I will try something new after i finish this tube but will gladly come back to this when I have more money lol
EDIT: I have switched to Alpha Hydrox foaming cleanser. Its much cheaper and much more effective in removing make up.
Used this for half of a year without suspecting it actually caused my acne, not my moisturizer! Leaves a firm on the face after washing, and very drying too.
I have been searching for a cleanser for sooooo long, that finally, and i"m so relieved I've finally found The skin care line. I have sensitive combo skin, dry most the time and prone to breakouts. I have been looking for products to fit my unique skin type, since I pretty much got a little of everything bad. When it was too harsh i'd dry out and break out, if it was not effective i'd dry out and break out. So many times experimenting and nothing was perfect.
I think the problem was, too often I'd try to combat too many things at once. Like control my pimples, and make my face whiter or exfoliate and make my skin smoother, etc. etc.
After trying shiseido washer at my friends house, i liked it a lot and bought my own tube! And honestly, after using it for a couple months, i'm in love.
It's simple, its gentle, and it keeps my skin balanced. Not too dry, not too oily, takes off all my make up, and is so pleasant and softening to your skin. I feel really happy that i've found that often just cleansing, the basics of it all, fixed all my problems. Straight to the point and no frills or laces, it's a great, simple, and effective cleanser.
I want to love this cleanser, and I try to use all the samples I get, but it just doesn't seem to work out for me. Some people may like the squeaky clean feeling, but for me, it just feels like my skin is very tight and dry afterwards. Also, I don't typically wear heavy makeup everyday, just a bit of spot concealer, but this cleanser left a lot of makeup (which I only noticed when I used a cotton pad and toner). Eeks! I switched immediately because the worst thing would be to sleep with makeup still on your skin! I might keep just for the mornings, but not sure I would purchase.
I love this face wash because it is so gentle on my sensitive skin! The texture is smooth and creamy, but it is not thick. It feels light and clean to wash your face with. It rinses off easily and does not leave a residue. My skin feels so clean and soft when I finish washing my face. I have acne-prone skin but do not have breakouts when using this cleanser. It does not contain salicylic acid so it is gentle enough for sensitive skin. I use this cleanser twice daily.
I find the cleanser not bad but not really fantastic. I feel abit disappointed when I use it. it cleanse well but I just cant see the effect. just that it's doesn't breakout on me, which is good.
Honestly, I used to try the Pureness line 2 years ago and ended up have even drier skin. I hate Shiseido since then. But the Skincare line is my totally HG right now!! I just bought those 2 days ago because of the great reviews here and can u believe it?? In just 2 days, those stuff turn me from having dry, acne- prone, combination skin to the greatest skin I have ever had in my life. No kidding but it's true. Don't hate that brand at first even some of the products hurt you. I think maybe other lines would fit u best. Just like me!! (I hope I should have tried the skincare line 2 years ago.)
Loved the texture, and smell of the cleansing foam. I love how it foams up a lot and leaves my skin squeaky clean, removing all traces of make up and dirt.
