Shiseido White Lucent Cleansing Foam
I just would never spend $35 on a cleanser, Never!! Always been happy using my trusted Neutrogena or Cetaphil. I had Philosophy Purity Made Simple, but was not so very impressed. This was a part of set from Nordstroms and I picked the whole $100 set just for a fancy bag that came with it. Yeah! Lame...
A gentle purifying cleansing foam that whisks away impurities with a fresh, creamy lather while protecting skin's vital moisture.
This reformulated skincare essential purifies the complexion and promotes a look of inner radiance. A dose of micro white powder helps remove dead surface cells to boost clarity and luminosity.
What else you need to know:Shiseido White Lucent, reformulated with an exclusive Multi-Action Brightening System, is a complete line of skincare products that targets spots and promotes a luminous, glowing complexion.
If you are looking for a cleanser, that will Birghten or whiten the face, I am sorry to say, this one is not that cleanser. Infact, I doubt any cleanser would give that 'Brightening' effect. This is an excellent cleanser, that cleans the skin well. Squeaky Clean as you say.
Fragrance: The Fragrance is pleasant
Texture: Light, Smooth and Creamy
How I use it: Just a pea size if more than enough to create a rich foam and cleans the entire face. After rinsing with water, no residue is left and the face feels sqeaky clean. This rinses quickly with very less water. This was the best thing I liked.
Effect: I have normal to dry skin and in winter it actually gets dry, but not flaky, if moisturized well. With this cleanser, the skin did feel tight and I needed a moisturizer. It did not rip the face of its natural oils and hence no scratchy or itchy effect and that uncomfortable stretchy feel.
It does not removes the Kohl or eyeliner completely. I prefer using it after removing my makeup with a makeup remover. My face was pretty clean and appeared 'bright' in those yellow lights of my bathroom. This 'brightening effect' though lasted for few minutes and then back to normal.
I like the little luxury that this cleanser provides in my daily cleansing routine. Would love to buy again if I get it as a part of some kit (with a pretty bag) or during the Friends and Family Sale. It is not a must have in my daily cleansing routine.
Is there any Specific Facial Cleanser that is a part of your cleansing routine? A cleanser that has a Holy Grail Status in your daily cleansing routine.
