Review: Shiseido SENKA Perfect White Clay

It had been a while since I last did a skincare review blog entry. I had been focusing so much on food lately to the extent that my waistline was affected too. I had been trying to eat as clean as possible and I am happy to announce that my waistline is slowly returning back to “normal”. LOL!

That being said, I am rather afraid that my effort would go wasted as I have a wedding dinner to attend next weekend and following my Singapore trip on the weekend after that. I guess I would have to cut down on cafe hopping while in Singapore. Cafe hopping is the biggest contributor to my expanding waistline back in my last Singapore trip.

Without further ado, let’s get this blog entry done with before I ramble more and more about my waistline.

Shiseido SENKA Perfect White Clay

I got this facial cleanser from Miri in early August when I went down for a medical consultation. The medical consultation was scheduled at 3PM. So, we window shopped at Bintang Megamall. As you can see from my previous skincare hauls’ entries, I had been stocking much on makeup removers but facial cleansers.

To be honest, I preferred stocking up on lower range makeup removers and facial cleansers from Malaysia as they were a lot cheaper than in Singapore. Singapore could be selling four times more expensive than Malaysia for the same skincare item. However, it wasn’t the case for high end skincare products. They priced about the same when converted.

Shiseido SENKA Perfect White Clay is blended with white clay, clears dullness caused my dead skin cells and impurities lodged deep inside the pores and removes them to brighten overall skin tone.

So, I had been using this cleanser quite religiously for a month or so. I alternate this with Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser. However, I prefer to use the former in the morning and the latter for evening use. The texture of Shiseido SENKA Perfect White Clay is creamy paste like and it lathers extremely well with a little bit of water.

Having used the facial cleanser for a month or so, I find that it can be tad bit harsh on my skin as it leaves a tightening feel after rinsing. However, I liked that it did not breakout on my skin. Fragrance wise, it smelled almost similar to Shiseido SENKA White Perfect Watery Oil and Shiseido SENKA Perfect Gel but milder.

I was rather disappointed that the product did not live up to my expectation. The product promised brightening results which I don’t see it happening on my skin. I think my skin tone was still like before.

So, here’s what I think of Shiseido SENKA Perfect White Clay in a nutshell:

1. Affordable.
2. Smelled nice.
3. Cleanses the skin well enough.
4. Doesn’t cause skin breakout.

1. Tightening feel after rinsing.
2. Did not live up to expectation for brightening results.
