Hello everyone,

I have two common cleansers and one more from Payout, which I thought was perfect, but I still can’t stop looking for something even better.

After I ran out of the Payout foam, I went to the shop in search of a new cleanser. The shop assistant advised me to try the one from the Shiseido Ibuki range.

I love Shiseido! I think they have wonderful and high-quality cosmetics at a reasonable price.

Recently I presented my mom with a skin care set (foaming cleanser, cream and lotion). Before that I had spent the night at my parents’ and used my mom’s foaming cleanser, although it was designed for aging skin. That foam blew me away! It removed my makeup completely on the first try.

So when the shop assistant suggested I buy Shiseido, I agreed right away.

And it was the right decision!

About Ibuki:

The range was launched at the end of 2013.


The silver enamel bottle with a logo inside contains 125 ml of the foaming cleanser.

The tube itself is a soft pearl beige color with this writing:

Shiseido iBUKI Gentle Cleanser - that’s all Smile

The plastic is good quality. It doesn’t deform and lose its shape after constant use. I would describe it as a regular flip-top bottle.

The product:

This extra-gentle cleanser lathers quickly into a rich foam to remove impurities and harmful excess sebum without stripping away skin’s essential moisture. Skin feels refreshed and silky smooth to the touch.

PhytoResist Complex: enhances skin’s natural moisture factors*, refines texture and builds skin’s resistance to external stressorsRelaxing, comforting scent enhances your daily skincare routineTo use: combine small amounts of cleanser and water to create a generous lather. Cleanse with gentle, circular motions and rinse well.

It’s incredibly thick!

The color is white with a hint of pearl.

The foam comes out of the tube easily (Payout cleanser, for instance, came out either thick, or watery).

It lathers into a rich foam without any effort. You just have to rub your hands with the cleanser under running water. A pea-sized amount of it is enough for good foam.

The product has a tender floral aroma.

Moreover, it’s absolutely budget-friendly, as only a small amount of foam is required for washing your face.


There aren’t any harmful ingredients in this product.

My impressions:

This foam cleanses my skin softly and delicately! My skin is so smooth to the touch! No impurities, imperfections (those who have blackheads understand what I’m saying), peeling or oily skin. It doesn’t dry your skin which is really good!

After using it for a month, I’ve noticed that my skin doesn’t need any special products to fight blackheads. My pores got smaller, but my skin didn’t feel tight.

I love the nice fragrance and the feeling of freshness on my skin that stays for quite some time.

It removes makeup quickly and easily. For example, foundation fixed with powder removes at first or second try.


It’s a very good cleansing product. It’s soft, delicate and affordable. It’s the best cleanser I’ve ever tried!

I definitely recommend it!
