Love this stuff! I have combination (oily/dry) skin and it's very sensitive to products. I used this as a night cream, as my last step in skin-care routine. The cream absorbed immediately into my skin and left it soft and smooth by morning. For a "cream" (rather than lotion) it is not greasy, feels light-weight and moisturizes the whole face. One of the saleswomen at a local Korean beauty place said this cream is usually used by women in their 20s because it's good for oily skin. I love it.
This stuff is awful. It's greasy, does not absorb into the skin, and it gave me small white pimples all over my face. For an over-the-counter face lotion, it's not cheap either. My dermatologist RAVED about this and didn't understand when I told her it made my face worse.
BB Cream -Etude - Etude House Precious Minerals Bright Fit BB cream SPF 30

I love this BB cream! It's cute, affordable, and most importantly, it works. It's easy to blend, either with brush or fingertips, and does not feel heavy at all. This BB cream provides great coverage and looks very natural. The only con is, at the end of the day, the natural oils on my face are visible again, so this BB cream is not the best at oil-control. This is good for winter when my skin is drier, but I will probably switch to another cream for summer!

My face broke out everywhere after using this. When you first apply it on your face, it looks and feels great. By the end of the day, my face was covered with small white, flaky patches and looked completely unnatural. By the next day, my face had small red splotches everywhere. I have used several other BB creams from Korea and never had this reaction!
Treatments -Shiseido - Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum

This stuff is amazing. The first time I used it, I noticed my face was so smooth and bright. It reduced the oily shine on my skin, and made it feel soft and delicate. I've been using it for several weeks now, and my face is different. It also works well as a primer, under makeup! (I used cheaper primers and had to stop because it made me break out and stripped the moisture from my skin. This Shiseido serum has double impact, as serum and as primer!)
This wash is pretty good! Although it can feel thick out of the tube, this foams up very well. After I wash it off, my face feels fresh and clean, no stick residue at all! I don't know if it is that much better than other Shiseido products, but I like it.
I love this product as a SPOT treatment, not as a mask. It's too drying to use everywhere. But at night, I dab a little on blemishes, and by morning, they're smaller, less red, and my face looks cleared up. It works really well! And because you only need a tiny dab, it lasts a long time.

Made my face very soft. It was not too sticky or thick. It felt smooth and light. I wish it was cheaper because at this price, I'm not buying again...
Cleansers -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam

Great product. Leaves my face feeling so clean, takes off all makeup, and (like all the other reviewers have already stated), you only need a small amount to work up a rich lather for the entire face. My face looks bright and white immediately after washing, but the brightening effect does not last very long. For the price, definitely buying again.
Toners -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Balancing Softener Enriched

I have combination skin and this made my entire face break out. Not to be used for my skin type. I love the other products in the White Lucent line, though, so I'm going back to exchange for the non-enriched softener! UPDATE: I switched and got the non-Enriched version of this softener. I love it! It has been part of my daily skin care routine for the past year now!
