Shiseido's Ibuki Gentle Cleanser is Heaven Sent!

Tuesday, January 13, 2015


I know it's a little too late for the Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser but I can't go on without sharing my experience with this softening and ultra moisturizing cleanser. I received this product from Shiseido and I have been using it for months (and I mean MONTHS). I will tell you about it later why it will last you a long time!

As I have mentioned to you guys in the past, I have been suffering from dry skin during this pregnancy and there are only a handful of products that I can use to solve that problem. I have been using this cleanser for months now and I must say that this is one of the reasons why the skin on my face has kept it's suppleness. I did suffer from major flaking in the beginning of my pregnancy but when I stopped rotating my cleansers and stuck with this one for a while, my skin didn't itch anymore nor did it flake.
Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser 125ml, PhP 1,495

If your current cleanser drying your skin too much? Then this could be the answer to your dry skin woes! More information after the break!

If you are anything like me who loves reading information on products, then you wouldn't like the reflective packaging this cleanser has. But don't worry, it comes with an instructional pamphlet inside the box so no need to panic!
The full size of the cleanser comes in 125ml tubes. And I must tell you that this cleanser will last you for months to come even if you wash your face twice a day. But even though it's very gentle, I won't advise washing your face with soap twice a day because soap will always dry out your skin. No matter what soap you use.
It's quite handy and you can take it with you when you travel! I love that the tube is very sleek and simple. Although after several uses the container sort-of becomes quite sticky and dirty. I don't know why though.
Trust the Japanese to provide superior packaging with safety seals for all their products. That is what I love about Japanese products, their packaging never disappoints.
The cleanser comes in a typical flip top cap that snaps closed when you press it. Which is good because you don't have to worry about product spilling out of the tube.
This is way to much to cleanse your entire face and neck. You only need about half of this amount (or even less) to cleanse your entire face! That is what I love about this cleanser, you do not need a whole lot for it to lather real well.

The cleanser leaves the skin moisturized and refreshed. My skin didn't feel taught and tight at all like it would crack after cleansing which is always a good sign of a good moisturizing cleanser. You will still have to follow it up with a moisturizer though.

This cleanser would go well with the Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate!
