There is not much difference between this product and the UV White Cleansing Foam (I use the enriched type II). I have both cleansers on my bath shelf and I always use the White Lucent in the evenings and UV White in the mornings (well, for no particular reason). However, I find that the White Lucent is more creamy and smoother comparing to the UV White and it doesn't leave me any dry or taut feeling at all. The price is about 20-30% pricier than the UV White in Japan. I think both lines are cheaper than other brands' cleansers, still it works as a pricey cleanser should. Highly recommended product!
I have oily skin. It cleans my face very well and leaves it soft. The smell is great. However, I dont like its texture. It's too creamy for me. One who doesn't like foam may try this.
I got a sample set from the local Shiseido counter, which includes the White Lucent Cleasing Foam, Softener, and Moisturizer. At the time I'm in search of a new cleanser that can wash away my sunscreen effectively without stripping away moisture. The Cleansing Foam lathers well with a small amount and gets rid of my water- and perspiration-resistant Shiseido sunscreen effectivly (something which the cleanser I normally use don't do well in). But having used the whole set for a few times my skin has become much dryer than usual, with flakes visible all over. I can only attribute this sudden change to the White Lucent set, since this is the only change in my routine. I'll go back to my normal cleanser because extra effort to get rid of water-resistant sunscreen is still better than unsightly dry skin.
its the new range introduced after the UV whitening..same properties as compared to the UV cleanser,foamy with just a pea size does its magic but i feel it doesnt cleanse as well compared to UV. its still a good product overall though..
I tried a sample of this. Like all the Shiseido foam cleansers, it foams up nicely with just a pea sized amount and rinses off quickly. However I find it rather drying as compared with the UV White Cleanser II. I don't see any brightening effects - maybe you have to use regularly for a longer period. But would you buy a tube for RM135 when there are cheaper alternatives??
