Shiseido Tsubaki Shining Conditioner, 550ml

Product Review: Shiseido Tsubaki Shining Conditioner

I have hair that’s chemically processed (perm and dye), which is prone to frizz. I have tried many different mass market western brand shampoos and conditioners meant for taming frizz; but none of them really did the job. All they did was weigh the hair down and make it feel heavy and oily. Until I tried Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo (white bottle), I was just about to give up. I hated the anti-frizz products which are very oily and greasy, and my hair is getting very dry now that the indoor heat is on everywhere. Read more…

Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo, 220ml, CAD$13

Product Review: Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo

All these years, I have never fallen in love with a shampoo. My hair is like my skin: dehydrated, but it can get oily if I don’t wash it every day, and if the shampoo or condition is too rich, my hair looks greasy yet with drier ends.

Shiseido Aqualabel Moist Coat Essence, 6g, US$18 at

Product Review: Shiseido Aqualabel Moist Coat Essence

While my skin is generally good, clear and problem free, I do find that as I get older, the pores on my inner cheeks are more dilated, and usually, at the end of the day when I remove makeup, I find debris or whiteheads trapped in them. Foundation tends to sink into those pores as well. I didn’t expect any products to actually shrink pore size (which I was told was not possible), but I needed a product to at least fill the pores so the foundation/makeup won’t settle in them. After a bit of research and reading some reviews, I decided to buy Shiseido Aqualabel Moist Coat Essence, which costs US$18 (plus US$2 shipping by registered mail) on, one of my favourite go-to places for Japanese goodies. Read more…

Shiseido Senka Perfect Gel (160g)

Product Review: Shiseido Hada Senka Perfect Gel

I have used Shiseido Hada Senka Sengan Series: Perfect Oil and Perfect Whip, both of which I loved. It’s my first time trying the lighter (in texture and in feel) Perfect Gel, which removes makeup. I paid about CAD$15 for it at a local Japanese beauty store (J-town in Markham) and after 2 months I still haven’t used up the 160g tube yet, which isn’t too bad! Read more…
