I bought this in Japan so it was a reasonable price - that said this working so well I might consider buying it for a higher price in another country.

I am at that stage where I am no longer 'oily skin' but not yet 'mature' skin. This seems to be the right cleanser (and skincare line in general) for me right now. I still use oil as a makeup remover but use this most …

Many reviews say this is expensive - I've had my friends purchase this for me from Japan, and I've paid USD40 - 50. USD40: She purchased it from a drugstore. USD50 - from Takashimaya, a Department store not unlike Nordstrom/Neiman Marcus. Recently, a Japanese friend visited and he brought the emulsion, the cleanser and toner for me. When I tried to press USD120 into his hands, his …Read more

I have tried several of the shesiedo skin care line for several years but by far the elixir line is the best. I really like the cleanser 1 formula and the CE emulsion. I was not partial to the toning lotion because it made my skin oily although it is supposed to be made for oily skin. You cannot go wrong with this line. I love it.

This review is for Elixir Superior Cleansing Foam II. I'm not sure what the name is supposed to mean, but it's probably similar to the original. Anyways, this is the best cleanser I have used. Shiseido products usually work well from me (I'm Asian?). I have sensitive oily skin, with teenage acne, aka what can easily be a mess if not cared for properly. This cleaner leaves my skin …Read more

Just a very small amount will foam up quite a bit so a little goes a long way. I use the entire Elixir line and I'm very happy with it. I feel like it gets my face clean and because it foams up white I can see where I have applied it on my face. Would definitely buy again.

I absolutely love Shiseido's Elixir line. I have the cleanser, toner, and moisturizing serum. I use these products with each other everyday and my skin is always left feeling soft and extremely clean. The cleanser itself lasts forever because just a pea sized amount goes a long way. The toner really gets all the excess dirt left behind and the serum just leaves my face feeling refreshed with …Read more

I really like everything about this cleanser. At first it seemed like a lot of money to pay for a cleanser ($27 for about 5 oz), but you only need the tiniest amount to create a bountiful, cushiony lather so the tube lasts forever. After washing, my face doesn't feel tight or stripped, just squeaky clean and fresh. I'm buying this again!

I bought the cleansing foam I, which is for normal to oily skin. However, I found it's not suitable for my normal with oily T-zone face. After using it, my face was rough and dry as though it was cleansed by detergent. Maybe it's only good for young ppl who have very oily skin or acne-prone skin.

I really like this product. Feels like TLC for my skin. It has three kinds of formulas so it should suit most skin types. only 4 lippies tho, because it was kinda pricey. But I don't mind paying to be beautiful, so i got a good number of elixir products. The cleanser, the Softener, Moisturizer, toner and the Eye cream.

Very very good cleanser. In fact Elixir is the best product line from Shiseido that I've tried. It cleans my face well without drying it. Very creamy and foams up well. I am using Elixir cleanser, softener and emulsion. My skin has definitely calmed down and improved a lot. Love it!!!
