It is good.. After I washed, it felt really brighten and clean...I do know, Shiseido white lucent system are good for me. Except for the night lotion, I bought the wrong product.After I used for 3 days every night, my face havd a few acne..So I droped it away. Finally, I changed to GEL,that is really nice.Absorb really fast!!! Better than night lotion.
This is the best cleansing foam in the world..It makes my skin squeaky clean w/o drying me out. Like everyone in here, I would say u just need a tiny bit and it foams up very nicely..and thats how it lasts for so long i bought it 7 months back and right now its not even half empty(honestly) i use it twice daily..i dont know about the whitening properties but it does brighten me up..all in all i really like it, my whole skin care regimen is from white lucent now....
I got a couple samples of this from buying at a Shiseido counter a few months ago. I recently started using this in conjunction with my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil instead of Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash, and I absolutely love it! It takes less than a pea-sized amount to lather up to a thick, luxurious foam and washes off very easily. My skin is left clean and glowing. The scent is very pleasant, too. I haven't been using this long enough to judge its whitening properties (nor have I enough samples left to judge it accurately), but I'll be buying the full size bottle soon, and I can only hope it whitens as well as it cleans.
EDIT 9/28/07: Well, I've had the full-sized bottle for a couple weeks now, and I still absolutely love this cleansing foam - my skin is so glowy and beautiful now, I don't think I'll ever change cleansers. I actually look forward to washing my face at night - a pump of cleansing oil followed by this cleanser makes for the perfect cleansing regimen.
Foam condition: just need small amount to make foams
Fragrance: not too strong
I have used their Gentle Cleansing Foam which takes off most of my makeup and other residues; so I figured that this might be a similar product and on top of that it has brightening affect that I wanted.
It does foam really well. You just need to use a tiny pea size amount to clean your face. But after using it for about a week, I had to stop. The cleanser did not take off my makeup as much as the Gentle Cleanser did. When I applied my toner after after washing my face, the cotton pad picked up the left over makeup residues and other dirts from my face. I guess perhaps the brigtening ingredients might overpower the other effective cleansing substances in the product but overall, this product was not as effective as I hoped.
Had to return it at the end.
Good cleaner for normal to oily skin. It can remove makeup, sunblock as well, so I don't need a separate makeup remover. I have pretty oily skin, and this cleanser work well on me; no dry feeling afterward.
A little bit pricey, but only a little bit can make lot of foam. A tube can last for long.
I use it with the White Lucent Softener-Light. I really can see the whitening effect
it really makes my skin brighter... all my skin care products are from this line.. love them..
Just a little bit. Half a pea size is all it takes to create a luxurious foam. My face feels very clean afterwards. The smell is pleasant also.
I have been using this for months.. my face looked brighter and smoother. Lucky for me, i can find travel size ( 30 ml) around here easily. will buy again for sure~
This is a very typical Shiseido cleansing foam. But all shiseido cleansing foams are good. The foam it generates is very soft and silky. After rinsing, I found no residue and my face feels squeaky clean. Best of all, it does not dry out my skin at all.
I received Shiseido's White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam, Brightening Refining Softener Enriched, and Brightening Protective Moisturizer SPF 16 as a package Christmas gift. The Cleansing Foam, as others have reported, foams up nicely with very little product so the tube should last a very long time. Skin does look lighter and brighter immediately after use, but not much change in my freckles (I've tons). The written instructions say to use in the am and pm, but I'm a little wary of cleansing with such a strong cleanser so frequently. It is a good cleanser -- skin feels very clean -- but because I'm in my 40s, I make sure to follow up with a good moisturizer afterwards. Be careful of getting it in your eyes, stings like the dickens. (I chose a 4 for the price above, because I believe it's relatively pricey, but as I got it for a gift, I don't know for sure.)
