This cleanser does a good job in taking off my makeup, but it does leave a little bit behind (which I can tell when I use my toner with a cotton pad). I like how it is gentle and does not feel harsh. You only need to use a pea amount to get a big amount of foam. I think mine lasted me about a year!
I don't know if my skin has gotten any lighter from using it, but I would like to think that way.
If you have money, go ahead and buy this. As for me, I will keep using this (even though I don't like the price) because I can't find any other cleanser to replace it.
I bought this because I was trying the Lucent line and I read that you're supposed to try the entire whitening line if you want to show any whitening results. The foam is good - it does the job of cleaning but it's nothing special. Again, it didn't harm my skin but it didn't do much more than that.
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~
