Love the smell of the cocoa butter collection. However, The scrub was a little too intense for me (reminded me of Swiss apricot scrub). I use it before self tanning. It does last for a while, but I took some points off the packaging because, well.. it's not pleasing to my eye.
This is one of the better bronzers I've tried. The color is a nice brown (not too reddish or orange). I use it on my face and body and it is highly pigmented which means it lasts for quite a while, but also means you have to spend more time blending. My only complaint is with the coarse brush they sell for it. I got mine complimentary, and tossed it. The hairs fell out and it was soo rough. But, you can opt to buy w/o the brush. I use a soft shiseido powder brush and it works for me!
I've had acne since age 10 and all this did was dry me out. The cleanser was too gritty for sensitive acne prone skin. The toner was practically all alcohol, and the acne treatment was nothing different than all other pimple creams. I used the system until it ran out and then cancelled my future orders. I tried shiseido's pureness (alcohol + oil free and extremely gentle) and realized that a main part of clearing up acne is through moisture and avoiding chemicals like alcohol! So far my skin is clear and incredibly soft! Pro Active should take a hint from shiseido...
Let me just say that I'm allergic to the chemical in self tanners and they all make me break out in itchy bumps. But, I'm determined so I ordered this from the fake bake website and it's quite pleasing. It doesn't bother my skin (might have a smaller % of the chemical), no streaks at all, and doesn't smell horrible! The tan isn't dark, it's more like medium. The color and thickness makes it really easy to apply.
This is a great mask for massage! I use it on myself and my friends. When you rub it in it creates a smooth surface (ideal for massage) and doesn't absorb into the skin. Once you start massaging, you can feel your skin exfoliating and it feels really warm. I don't use it that often, maybe once or twice a week and I make sure to wipe it off or rinse it off. It smells sooooooo good! I love the smell of "the skincare" line! It's a little expensive ($30), but it lasts for a long time (I've had mine for a few months and still 1/2 left!)

I have been using this eye cream for about 6 months and it's not even close to finished! A little goes a long way which is why I like the very narrow tip at the end of the tube ( it encourages conserving. The product itself is a light lotion in texture and in weight. It is a must that eye creams are lightweight or they make your eye area sag in time(that's why I don't use my face sunblock on my eye area). It is great for preventing lines (caused by the sun)and doesn't smell at all like sunblock. Great basic eye cream.

This eye cream is great! I have oily skin, but sbn eye cream doesn't irritate my skin. Packaging is wonderful, it fits right in your hand and comes with a tiny spatula that scoops perfect little pea size drops. Did I mention a little goes a long way? It's so rich but you can mix some with a little concealer (shiseido makes a great pot concealer) and viola! love it
I have a sample of the parfum and I LOVE it! It's like DK's black cashmere but more wearable and subtle. I found it lasted all day on me, but I only noticed on the first day. After that I must have gotten used to it. I hope they come out with a cute Christmas set... I have to say it's one of the best woodsy feminine scents I've experienced EDIT: I wore this in a high altitude/cold region and the chocolate really stood out! It was great!
These eyeshadows are amazing! I only have one so far, but it will last forever! Due to the high quality pigment, you barely have to use any product! I use mine as eyeliner too. Not too many wild colors (which is too bad), but the colors they make are exceptional. Their brighter colors don't look tacky either. They are all somewhat earthy and blend so well! As for the packaging, those pallettes make you want to hurry and fill them up. Nothing fancy with the packaging, but it's the best $10 eyeshadow I've found EDIT: Only certain colors have the great pigment. Some of the lighter colors are too sheer and crease very quickly. Yet, 2 out of 4 that I've bought are amazing. I'll just stay away from the soft hues
This is such a beautiful color! It has a reddish brown on one side and a peach color on the other. Shiseido's shadows have always had superior testure. A little goes a long way, so it may take some getting used to. This color looks great on darker skin and middle easterners. It can give you that exotic look, but it still matches almost anything in your closet.
I gave these away as Christmas gifts last year, and everyone wants more! They're great if you have combo or normal skin (not so hot for oily). MEN LOVE THESE! The scent actually smells like honey and the soap itself is less that their normal skincare soap(7.50 vs 20.00). I don't know why people are comparing it to neutrogena. Neutrogena's soap dissolves 10x's faster and feels slimy on the skin. The honey cake may look the same, but the honey cake is vey gentle. I'm giving them out this year, too since they were such a hit
This is a great softner! It doesn't have tons of alcohol and doesn't burn your skin. For oily, or acne prone skin it is great. The new one still has the powder, but it doesn't leave powder lines on your face. Your skin actually feels softer instead of tight and dry! Another win for shiseido
