What can be simpler than a moisturizer? Buy the very first you stumble across and enjoy it! But alas, real life interferes.

I have pretty sensitive skin which shows allergic reactions and clogged pores after many face creams. Very often, my dry skin simply doesn’t absorb typical creamy formulas even though it’s supposed to do so. That’s why I’m always on a lookout for a nice cream with a lightweight formula. Recently I ran out of another one from Shiseido.

Actually our relationship started with three samples. When I tried this out, I fell in love and bought the full-size jar.

It costs $38, but I bought the cream with a discount. Still pricey, though.


But I believe that I’d better have one good cream instead of problems with bad ones, and I try to stop feeling stingy and enjoy using it. And appreciate the beauty of the jar - isn’t it cool?

Ingredients and information:


I always want to call this “the cream," even though it’s a gel. Very thick, fragrance-free and transparent. It won’t run out of jar and can be taken out either with a finger (eww, don’t do this) or with a spatula

The gel is easy to spread over my skin. Very easy! Plus, a little bit goes a long way (which my inner stingy toad couldn’t be happier about).

Plus, the gel soaks in instantly (I tried to take a photo but it absorbed without trace while I was looking for a better angle).



I’m not sure how to show the effect in a photo, but here I am, in the morning after applying it.

Not perfect, I know. There are pores, visible blood vessels and early wrinkles.

But there is one but. My skin is dry, and after hormonal issues (and I gave birth to my second baby while using this gel), my skin becomes extremely dry. However, with this gel I never had any problems.

While using this gel, I applied sheet masks as a treat, not because I truly needed them.

There was no need to use a thermal water either.

My skin felt great! But I only realized it when my jar was empty. Now I use another cream, it’s not too bad, but Shiseido Waso was much better in all respects.

It didn’t clog my pores or cause allergic reaction, and didn’t feel like a film.

Nothing but moisturized skin. Perfect.

Ladies, this cream is awesome and truly worth its price.
