Shiseido Perfect Whip Foam & Perfect Oil

And yet another cleansing oil & foam cleanser review =P
Adambeauty added Shiseido's Perfect line to his shop and I was quite interested to try out a couple of items from the range so I settled on the Perfect Oil and Perfect Whip Foam. I don't usually like cleansing milks etc.

I quite like those cool blue bottles/tubes because they look somehow refreshing and clean.

I paid US$13 for the Perfect Oil and US$11 for the Perfect Whip Foam.

-Perfect Oil:
This comes in a hygienic 150ml bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle is made of transparent blue plastic whereas the oil is clear.
It's a rather lightweight thin oil that doesn't feel overly greasy and spreads well on my face.

This emulsifies really well and turns into a milky color when you wash it off. My face doesn't feel greasy or oily, just clean and comfortable after rinsing this off.
I think this can be considered in my Top-3 Cleansing Oil list (along with Kanebo Naive and FancL MCO).

I think I notice a super faint fresh scent when using this but I am not 100% sure if it's really fragranced.

-Perfect Whip Foam:
According to Shiseido this cleanser foams up to create super fine bubbles to remove dirt even from the finest pores etc.
The 120g squeeze tube contains a white cream that lathers up nicely creating a dense creamy foam.

What I really love about this cleanser is that it's one of the least harsh and drying foaming cleansers I found to date. Most foaming cleansers totally strip my skin of any oils but this leaves my face glowy and soft without a dry or taut feeling.

It has a light fresh scent and it's really pleasant to use this product.

All in all I highly recommend both items and think they're well worth purchasing. Shiseido has proven again that they can come up with really fantastic products.

Ooo, makes me want to try... I just ordered the Sana Nameraka Cleansing Oil and Foam Cleanser. I hope they work well for me :)

Did you reviewed the other two oils here before? The Naive one sounds interesting...

My Perfect oil arrived 2 days ago from Adam! I think the oil is scented but This is my first cleansing oil so I did not know what to expect but i really like it. I use a gel cleaner after but that is just because of habit. And i think it is has a light fresh scent.

Because of your blog I took an interest in Japanese makeup and i'm so happy I did. I find that western cosmetics companies expect all women to be blonde and tanned. i am caucasian with very fair skin and black hair and I walked in the department stores and nothing appealed to me because of my coloring.

I have been using the perfect whip cleanser for the past year to 2. I think they are really good. N yes, they are not harsh on the skin at all. =D Definately worth getting and they are very affordable.

As to the cleansing oil, it doesn't remove my makeup very well. I still prefer DHC cleansing oil. =)

nice nice...

So your skin didn't feel tacky at all after washing with the Perfect Whip? My face felt sticky or something, even though I rinsed carefully. It did have a great whipped texture though.

The oil is really intriguing me...

I actually just reviewed the cleanser not too long ago. Hehe. I like it for morning use, but not for night use, a little too mild for my liking.

I was thinking of whether to get the Cleansing Oil, since I saw on MUA the ratings weren't very good. But hm, now that I read your review, I having a change in my mind!

Is this product part of the regular Shiseido? It' not on their website. Just curious. I wanted more information about it because it is priced A LOT less than some of the older products. Thanks!

I have acne prone and kinda oily skin, and I use Naive cleanser (aloe) because it's not as harsh feeling as many of the American products I have used before.

I've been looking for a good quality, but inexpensive, Japanese makeup remover that will remove oil-free foundation and water resistant eye make up. Do you know of any?

I have heard that many Japanese women use oil makeup removers and I was wondering if the oil in the remover would cause acne?

Are the oil makeup removers better than the cream ones?

Thanks so much!
