The best product I've ever tried for oily skin.The white cream foams up really well and has a pleasant smell.You only need a small amount so a 100ml tube which costs around £14 lasts along time. The creme removes all excess sebum without leaving your skin dry and makes you feel squeaky clean.I find it works best if I use it before going to bed as I have a very oily skin and don't wake up feeling as though there is an oil slick on my face. This is my all time favourite cleanser and I would recommend it to any one who has very oily skin.
I'm a very easy person to get influenced by what the fashion magazine says. When an actress or singer or models said "I like this and that"....I will believe it easily and I have an instant reaction to find the product as soon as possible, even if its hard to find. Especially, when the fashion magazine's said "this is good, excellent or miracle worker". But at the end...most of it will leave a real dissapointment...not to mention usually its so over-priced....but enough about that....(I guess I'm not the only one who had that kind of problem) First, I never thought that Shiseido make any kind of tools....just make-up, and skin care products. But I when I read a native make-up artist's opinion in a fashion magazine of my country, I was suprise when he said "My job is not finish without my Shiseido eyelash curler".....I started to wonder if he saying the truth or not. So, I said forget it. I have lots of lashes but its really straight...I've tried lash curler with a little heat on it but its always took some of my eyelashes (I know I have lots of lashes but doesnt mean I wanna lose it...hehehe...) and its also not so easy to use....I also have the plastic curler which only give a nice curl about 3 seconds after you use it.....then I tried the metal "traditional" one, I like the result alot but sometimes its hurt my eye lids...I know it might be too close, but if I dont do that, the result will not be like what I expected. So, when I went to Shisheido counter, I decided to give the eyelash curler a try. I bought it when I was in my country, its about GBP.10 each. The price is a bit expensive, but basically its about the same price (sometimes cheaper) with curlers from other competitor brands. Physically, the curler looks the same as other metal classic curler. The curved metal surface fits easily on my eyelid. The width of it can get all my lashes curl at the same time. It h
as an elastic rubber that act as a "pillow" for lashes. The ergonomic of the curler is perfect, its simple but so easy on my hand, and the most important is the result is exactly what I've been looking for. With this curler, I dont need to curl it so many times, one time is enough. Since I'm a student, I dont have time to wait too long for my lashes to get curled. I can even curl my lashes without a miror and its not hurting my lid at all....the result?? still fantastic. I have mine for almost a year now, and its still works as good as the first time I bought it. It comes with an extra "rubber pad" so, its easy for me to clean it up and change it in between. I've tried the same product with a cheaper price but the result not the same. My friend has the "Shu Uemura" one and she likes it, but I still prefer my Shiseido, because its gives softer look. But still look dramatic with little touch of mascara. I'm not really brand minded, as long as it works, I will use it, doesn't matter its cheap or expensive. I know that I might paid a bit too much for a curler, but I guess that was the best investment I did on curler. After I use this, I dont need to try another, and it last long as well. Basically, I'm just tired throwing expensive junk into my trash bin.
I am inherently lazy about my beauty routine in the morning and an extra 5 minutes in bed wins the contest every time! Hence, my quest to find a wash off cleanser that wouldn't leave my skin tight and flaky, which it has a tendancy towards. I've tried numerous foaming and non foaming cleansers over the past month or so but all of them left my face feeling and looking less than it's best. Then I got a free sample of Shiseido Benefiance Creamy Cleansing Foam and all that has changed. While the Benefiance range is for more mature skin, and I am a mere 32 years old, it is also suitable for sensitive or dry/dehydrated skin. It has done wonders for mine. You only use the tiniest amount and it foams up to a really soft lather which really cleanses your face but still leaves it soft and supple. I will definately be using this product for the forseeable future.
This is the only eye cream that I have ever come across which actually has a high factor of sun protection of 15. I came across this product by chance from the website called www.ivillage.com. I have dark shadows beneath my eyes and have always known that the sun was the culprit. Although it is a bit expensive, I decided to buy it anyway. You can’t put a price to beauty! The thing with buying stuffs from Shiseido is that you should always ask for free samples which is a great way to test their products. I managed to get a 7ml bottle of eye and lip make-up remover from ‘The Skincare’ range and a 7ml tube of gentle cleansing foam. The white eye cream seems very heavy, so I usually warm it between my ring fingers before applying it around the eye area, and I’ll pat the eyelids with any residues towards the end. It does feel quite oily on the eye area, but so do other eye creams such as those by Molton Brown, Liz Earle (Liz Earle’s eye repair has an SPF of 10) and Elemis, but this cream has the added advantage of protecting the delicate eye area against UVA and UVB rays. It is water and perspiration-resistant. I have been using this every morning since I bought it and my eyes had never been sensitized by this product and it doesn’t blur up my contact lenses like ‘Eye rescue’ from Molton Brown does. Because you only need apply a little of it, this 15 ml tube will last for a long time.
The Skincare range from Shiseido is the best product I ever tried on my skin. They have a very soft touch and clean and moisturize very deeply, right from the first aplication you can feel the difference. They have some good options of care such as cleansing foams, night and day moisturizers with FPS, gels and much more, also some specific cares for different skins: light for normal to oily skin. moisturizer for normal skin and enriched for normal to dry skin. They are much more expensive than the usual creams from popular brands but they are really worth the money, and you don't need to aply more than a pea size amount of any product so they last very long.
