Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Shiseido Senka's Perfect Whip Foam Review

1.04.2013


anyone tried the Perfect Whip before?

I'm so excited! finally I got to try the famous whip foam cleanser from Shiseido's Senka facial cleanser range! I've been hearing about it for a long time but never did want to pay for someone to CP it for me. Alas my wait is over because Shiseido is has launched the Senka skincare range that carries the Perfect Whip in Malaysia! You can check it out at Watsons. It's only RM19.90! lovin the price tag *smiles*.

now in my hands, the Perfect Whip foam cleanser

It's one of the best selling cleansers in Japan which makes me really want to try it. Anything the Japanese is going ga-ga for in skincare, means it must be really good. They're super fussy about what they use or put on. Well that's just me and what I think :P Anyway this Perfect Whip is popular because of the F O A M. Yes the foam is different from any other foam cleansers you have use! The foam created by Perfect Whip is:

  • thick rich lather
  • foamy creamy
  • light / airy

Shiseido uses a brush and a bowl to whip up a perfect batch of creamy light foam but I find that for home users, having a brush and bowl to create foam is time consuming. I went to youtube to search for videos on how to make the Perfect Whip foam and found two reliable videos. Only with 2cm of the cream cleanser on your palm, mix and fold into a sizable foam ball. Then gentle feel the foam against your face and using movements, cleanse your face. The video makes it feel like it's a ritual, kinda reminds me of Utada Hikaru's music video "Clean". There's a aesthetic feel about it.

Shiseido Perfect Whip Cleansing Foam

A rich foam cleanser which can dissolve makeup and draw out impurities from the pores. Contains hydrating agents, including amino acid, for smoothing and maintaining the natural moisture of the skin. This cleanser forms as a soft and rich peak, acting as a "cushion" to protect the skin from harsh cleansing motion. Meanwhile, it penetrates into the pores to clean impurities and excess sebum. Skin becomes clean, soft and hydrated.

watch this video! makes u feel like using the cleanser haha

how to make the perfect whip?


how to use the Perfect Whip


How to use create the Perfect Whip foam ball?
1) Make sure hands are washed and wet
2) Squeeze 2cm and add a few drops of water in your palm
3) Lather into a creamy foam with a cupping motion
4) If necessary, add more water during the lather process to create a soft peak;
5) Clean your face with soft cleansing foam, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid eye and lip areas.

another Japanese product I love Konjac sponge
soft jelly-ish face cleansing sponge

I tried using the mix & fold technique but failed to create a big foamy ball. Sigh hard but I'll practice. I turn to my Konjac Bamboo Charcoal sponge (thx to Candy bought it from Japan). It helped in creating a pool of foam for me! The Daiso's foam cleanser sponge also does the trick faster (since it's not compact like the Konjac sponge).

went overboard creating foams!

now I have my foam

feeling the foam in my face

Oh it feels so airy... yet not overly mushy and watery. The foam is so different, it's packed but light and airy. When I push the foam ball gently on my face and gently move in circular motion, it feels almost like the video so serene so soft and clean. It didn't strip my face oils away and leave it tight. Instead it was soft and nice, like a gentle foaming wash. Didn't sting my eyes at all (brownie point). I use the Senka lotion after this (a review coming up too) to moisturized my skin.

  • not a make up remover
  • gentle foam cleanser
  • hydrating finish
  • no squeaky clean, tight sensation afters
  • there's no apparent scent to it, smells like a cleanser hahaha!!!
  • no stinging to eyes (hahaha!!!)
  • For all skin type (except ultra-sensitive skin)

feeling fresh & clean afters! :)

Perfect Whip Foam Cleanser RM19.90 120g

Highly recommend my friends to try this cleanser. Thanks to Shiseido for finally bringing in the Senka range. It's so affordable, I want to try the other cleansers in the range too for removing make up. Another product I hear is really good is the water base sun protection! hope that's available in Watsons, I need to get one before my skin fries up.

me playing with the foams again

not the right way to foam cleanse your face!

  12. Tammy, what's the difference between the perfect whip and the perfect gel? And omg, there's also the liquid cleanser! Choices choices choices! Is it for different skin types? I have combination skin with dry patches on my cheeks, which one would you recommend? (Though honestly, the perfect whip sounds like a fun cleanser to play with in the morning, LOL)
