I have now quite an good deal of different Asian skincare products and it’s time to write something about them while I still have inspiration. I’ll start off by reviewing the Japanese cleanser, because I’m feeling blue after a month I spent in Tokyo. I’ve bought so much of everything there.
I chose the Shiseido cleansing range for a reason. I longed to try it, as I have problem and picky skin and occasional breakouts.
I’ve purchased this cleansing foam along with a makeup remover.
The foam impressed me with its quality and performance even when I was in Japan. I started using it right after I bought it.
I’ve used up half of the tube already, but I haven’t changed my opinion about it.
Full name: Shiseido Fitit Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam
Volume: 120 g
Use for: cleansing and moisturizing
Skin type: all skin types
The product comes in a nice tube of quality and soft plastic, which is nice to hold in my hands.
The cap opens up with a finger without much effort. The tube has to be squeezed for the necessary amount of the product.
After removing this cap, you can see a wide mouth. It’s designed so to refill the product when it runs low and use the same packaging.
I’ve seen such bottles in Asian products only. I guess that such packagings are made for us to save our money.
About the product:
The foam has a nice and thick consistency like that of a toothpaste. The color is white with a hint of pearl. A pea-size amount is enough, but I was overdoing it in the beginning and was squeezing too much. As a result the foam was too thick. Don’t actually do it.
The smell is light and nice. It smells like cosmetics and reminds me of a professional hair product.
I want to sniff it over and over again. You can enjoy it after washing, but it disappears completely after a while.
The texture is thick as resin and doesn’t flow.
It lathers quickly and forms a lightweight foam.
Although the tube doesn’t have any translation, the white part at the back says that the ingredients are not harmful but suitable for sensitive skin.
Water, Potassium Stearate, PEG-8, Potassium Myristate, Glycerin, Potassium Laurate, Dipropylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Myristic Acid, Lauric Acid, Polyquaternium-7, Beeswax, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance
I have combination skin and dry patches especially when the heating system is on.
As a rule, cleansing foams tighten up and dry out my skin causing uncomfortable feelings and irritation, but I can’t do without them, because I use BB creams, foundations and other concealing products.
My opinion about the Senka Perfect Whip:
I can definitely say that it’s the best low-cost product for my sensitive skin.
The manufacturer didn’t lie when talking about the moisturizing effect. The foam doesn’t dry out my skin at all and I don’t feel taut or uncomfortable after washing.
What are the pros I’ve noticed:
Cleanses perfectly and removes foundation and BB cream really well. I even forgot about the cleansing oil.
Doesn’t cause any pimples and it’s non-comedogenic. It doesn’t dehydrate my skin despite glycerin in the ingredients, so I don’t need any other moisturizers except for the serum.
Neither dries out my skin nor causes any peeling even in winter. It helped me really well combined with different antibiotic creams.
Suitable for all skin types, especially for problem skin with pimples. My skin got better very quickly.
It shrinks my pores and makes my skin silky-smooth.
A little goes a long way and a few drops are enough for the whole face.
Easy to use. It removes from my skin in tracks.
Whitens my skin a little, which makes my overall appearance better.
This product doesn’t have any disadvantages. No quibbling!
It’s a rare occasion that I can recommend a product to everyone and I can’t believe that it won’t suit anybody.
My Korean cleansing products are really left in the dust. I’ve found my perfect cleanser and I’m going to repurchase it.
