Review: Shiseido White Lucent Cleansing Foam

2 Aug

Hello everyone! Wow! It’s been a really long time since I posted a skincare item review… well no time dwelling on the past let’s get to it!

Review: This is a basic cleanser on the face and it does leave the skin really nice and refreshingly clean after usage. I don’t really notice a brightening effect on the skin but I like to think that over time my skintone has been lightening up. This works into a really nice lather and spreads easily over the face. There isn’t much else to say that this is one of my favourite cleansers to use if only the price tag was a little lower…

Cost: $49CDN @ The Bay, Sephora, and select Shoppers Drug Mart

Would I recommend this product? Yes, it works nicely as a basic cleanser and has been working on my acne scars to make them look a little lighter in the morning.

Skincare Overload?!

12 Aug

How many skincare products do I have to try before I am happy? The answer is A LOT… this is what I have picked up skincare wise in the past month alone.

So I am in the process of testing them all out one at a time… how I test is that I finish all the products that I buy myself even if it breaks out my skin or if it makes me skin drying or whatever I will use that thing until it is done. All this testing is going to take a really really long time… I don’t know if I should even do reviews on them… but yeah, just wanted to share how obsessed I am with skincare products.

Brighten up

28 Jul

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve updated my skincare routine but it still is the same as usual but recently I got a sample of Shiseido’s White Lucent line.

So this included the brightening eye treatment, brightening emulsion (moisterizer), and the cleansing foam.

I won’t be starting on this skincare anytime soon as I still have to finish up my previous items such as the Shiseido Lifting Eye Cream from the Beneficiance line and the mattifying moisterizer from the Pureness line.

Possible start date would be after my trip to Vancouver and I’m thinking these samples will last about a week or two so perhaps on Aug 8 and depending on when it ends I’ll review the line and put up more information on this line.

Please note that this line is meant to brighten up your skin’s complexion and not ”Whiten” it.

Skin Care Test

14 Feb

Since I have a break for a week I am going to do a skin care test. Some background information on my skin it’s oily/combination skin and I am pretty prone to acne breakouts. So this is the routine that I use currently:

 So the basic rundown

1. Wash face with the face cloth in warm water

2. Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser (no water needed!)

3. Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Serum on spots

4. LUSH Grease Lightning all over my face

5. St Ives Collagen Elastin Moisterizer

6. Body Shop 3-in-1 Blue Corn Mask + St Ives Apricot Scrub (not pictured) once a week

So basically I have a skin care regime basically to whiten up my dark spots due to the hyperpigmentation of the acne scars that I have. Now I got this set to try out:

 This is the Shiseido Pureness set which include a cleansing foam, softener/toner, and a mattifying moisterizer. I’m going to start on this regime tonight basically and try to get through all this. So I probably won’t use all of it at the same time just substitute it all in slowly to see if any of them actually break me out or not. Tonight I will be putting on the toner and if I react to it by tomorrow then I know I won’t be able to use it and then if I don’t break out by Tuesday I will substitute my usual cleanser into the cleansing foam. Thursday will be when I substitute the moisterizer. Lets hope that I don’t break out! Here is me now midday and way into the oilyness of my life

 So as you can tell I have currently clear skin with lots of scars and hyperpigmentation in a bunch of places especially on my chin and cheeks. Let’s hope that the test really works!
