I have a thing for cleansers. I love them and I’m always in the look to try new ones. For me is the most important step on my routine because as many experts says if you don’t cleanse your skin properly your skin won’t receive the benefits of the following products (serums, acid, etc.), so you will be wasting money. So today I will share my thoughts on this cleanser that I have heard so many things. So here we go:

Brand: Shiseido

Country: Japan

Main ingredients: Honey and Royal Jelly Extracts, Glycerin & Vitamin E

Purpose: to clean and removes any trace of makeup and impurities while restores the hydration level.

Texture: Gel

For whom is good: For all skin types.

When to use it: As a first cleanse in the morning or a second cleanse in the evening. Frequency – daily.

Free of: Parabens, Alcohol & Silicones

Vegan: No

Cruelty – Free: No

Safe for pregnant women: Yes

Size: 150 ml

Packaging: It comes in compact, practical plastic bottle. It doesn’t occupy a lot of space and is perfect to put upside down as when you are finishing the product. Is all clear so you can see how much product is left.

My opinion: For me this cleanser worked ok. Is a gel, simple, efficient, nothing more nothing less. It is gentle as the name says and I think the Honey helps to add moisture to the skin but I think for dry skins like mine it can be a little bit drying as it has SLS in it, which is fine but it tends to dry the skin. I think this will be a brilliant cleanser for combination to oily skins.

What I like the most: is a gel and the packaging is brilliant.

How long did it last: 3 months using it in the mornings.

Score: 3/5 average

Will I repurchase it: No

Price point: 150 ml: 30€ | $28| £25

Where you can buy it: you can buy directly from or any big retailer or department store.
