Sampling Sundays: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam

Hello everyone! The previous week-long hiatus was unintended. Honestly!


My scheduled posts did not go out as scheduled and I was too caught up with life (read: sleep and sales) to even notice no posts went up. I’m so sorry!!

I struggled a little with today’s Sampling Sunday post, as I wasn’t sure if I should place it as a proper review instead because I have used up many a deluxe-sized sample of this and I think I’ve pretty much used up a full-sized product over time!

The White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam is a soft cleansing cream that foams up nicely and basically does its job well. Should I be using an oil cleanser that leaves a thin film of oil behind – Hello, Shiseido’s Perfect Oil – this foam cleanser removes the rest of it, leaving my face soft and clean.

This does not give you the “squeaky clean” effect the way some cleansers do, nor does it feel tight after a while. It is slightly more drying than the SK-II Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser but this still works fine for my skin!

I’m currently in the process of using up as many sample-sized cleansers I’ve amassed over time so this has been the one cleanser I’ve been using since my SK-II one was used up! I’m kind of tempted to try their Perfect Whip cleanser (the one found in Watsons / drugstores, not over the Shiseido counter) but I must plough on through my cleanser samples before purchasing a brand new tube!

Do stay with me on this journey as this is what this “weekly” column is for!!

Do you ever use samples up? Or do you have a huge stash of untouched samples at home, just like I do? Do share! =)
