Senka Hoshitsu Lotion S Review

1.05.2013

2.5million bottles sold in Japan
(first 3 months of launching)

Right after the Senka's Perfect Whip, I would use the Senka's Hoshitsu Lotion S right away to moisturize my skin. These days I prefer to use a lighter textured moisturizer than cream based in the day and switch to a cream moisturizer during the evening. Thanks to Shiseido, I got to try the Senka Hoshitsu Lotion S for normal to oily skin in fresh texture. It's a lotion made from  Moisturizing Cream created by Shiseido’s own production technology, ingredients are made into ultrafine micro-size particles and blended into a lotion. Sound even more awesome than steam cream now haha.

after cleansing apply to the whole face

lotion made from moisturizing cream?
(can't believe it seriously)

Lotion made from Moisturizing Cream has a unique thick texture technique to ensure that the moisturizing component in this thickness is effectively delivered to your skin. Here is a few good reasons why I will buy this product again:

  • watery konyaku jelly like texture
  • hydrates on the outside and inside too
  • 24 hours hydrating
  • no stickiness, yet moisturizing
  • fragrance free
  • no artificial color

As good as it seems, it takes a a few mins for the lotion to be completely absorb into your skin so you need to wait before you apply make up otherwise you'll end up with weird brown patches. The wait is worth your while because your cheeks will feel soft and moist! There's no sticky residue or oily film layer left behind (brownie point).

it can be used as a mask to moisturize dehydrated/dry face


Learned from Shiseido that you can also use their lotions (like this one) as quick face mask just by DIY yourself at home using facial sheets masks or compressed facial masks from beauty counters. I got mine from Daiso for RM5. It has 5 tablets and a small container to soak up the lotion.

Senka Hoshitsu Lotion + Daiso's Face Mask

 DIY your own face mask

pour a generous amount of lotion

pop a tablet into the lotion


see it grow after a few minutes!

pour more lotion if it's not enough

Remove the tablet after it expands and unfold it to reveal a face sheet mask. I find that the Daiso container is too small, so the mask wasn't soak entirely. If this happens to you, just pour more lotion and turn the tablet around before unfolding it.  

this is my face moisture level before the mask 

wear the mask for 5 mins only

moist skin after mask yay

my moisture reading after the mask

Wow my moisture meter went up 13% after using the Senka Hoshitsu Lotion mask. My face manage to stay hydrated for more than 5 hours 24hrs at 40% reading!!! omg it does work!. I'm definitely impressed by the Shiseido Senka's range, I want to try them all! There's a promotion going on where you can buy their 3 star products - Senka Perfect Whip, Senka Hoshitsu Lotion and Senka Perfect Watery at 30% off with any purchase of RM50 & above of Senka products in a sigle receipt.

    1. It's helpful to determine whether the products works or not, can check every hour also. Makes me review things more confidently haha!
