[Review] Shiseido Senka - Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

Hello everyone! :)

It's been some time since my last review on cleansing product. Hence, today I am bringing you my honest opinion on this cleansing foam from Senka.

First of all, to establish an understanding on the brand. Honestly, I have been very confused by the name Shiseido Senka since day 1. What is the relationship between Shiseido and Senka btw?

The fact is, the brand Shiseido which we heard a lot is better known as "Shiseido Ginza Tokyo" that sells prestige products through counseling, primarily in department stores and cosmetics specialty stores. And the brand is owned by the Shiseido Group. The business proudly manages numerous renowned brands which can be categorized into 5 main divisions: prestige products, fragrance, cosmetic, personal care and hair professional.

For instance, Senka is an affordable highly-effective skincare brand under Shiseido Group. The brand offers full line of skincare and body care which includes face wash, makeup cleansers, moisturizers, body soap, sunscreen and more (source).

I ran into bunch of reviews, that's why I decided to give it a try. What more it is now available in local drugstores, Watson and Guardian. You can get this product under RM20.

According to its product description, this cleansing foam not only able to produce rich and intense foam, but also able to hydrate and moisture the skin while cleansing.

"A gentle facial wash that envelops the skin in a cloud of rich white cocoon foam." -SENKA.

To start, take appropriate amount, which is about 2cm and add water onto your palm.

Then lather the formula into a creamy foam by rubbing your hands together (as below). As you can see, there is no bubble at this stage, merely thick and rich lather.

If you are fancy of getting big and fluffy foam, I would recommend you to use a bubble maker or konjac sponge.

For me, I will just stop at this step and start washing my face with it for about a minute. Then rinse with water.

I know a lot of people say they like this cleansing foam, but apparently, my skin doesn't quite approve it. The thing is, not only I don't notice the hydrating finish, but at the same time I do experience slight tightening sensation after using this cleanser. :/ (Disclaimer: I'm saying this on my point of view, which may varies from individuals; I have normal to oily skin type.)

Well, I know some like the squeeky clean sensation after cleansing, it gives the feeling that you're super clean inside out, but bear in mind, don't choose a cleansing product that dries up your skin moisture.

Don't get me wrong, this cleanser does not dry up my skin. It is indeed a gentle and mild foam cleanser. Also, I do like its lather texture, which is rich and smooth. Nevertheless, personally I would prefer a cleansing product which is more gentle on the skin.


Rating: 2/5

Recommend: Worth the try for oily skin type.

Repurchase: No.

For your reference.
