This takes care of layers and layers on skincare, spf and makeup. You only need a small amount, it spreads over the face easily and emulsifies everything without stripping the skin too much. Easy to wash off. The scent is nice, not too strong and doesn't linger on. You get a ton of product for the price!
I use this as my second cleanser after my oil based cleanser when I double cleanse. It is gentle and doesn’t foam up so good for dehydrated, dry or sensitive skin. However I wouldn’t recommend using this cleanser alone for removing sunscreen or makeup.
Initially I was worried about fragrance but i found out it’s very mild and goes away after rubbing into the skin for a while.
Cleanse face with light makeup and eyeliner, easy to rinse, leaves your face clean and feel good. I don’t apply another face cleaning product after this. But it’s not as moisturizing as I expected, my face tends to be on the drier side after using this product but it does make you feel your face is clean.
No harsh chemicals and doesn’t irritate my eyes. Given the quantity, quality and price, I still recommend it.
I haven't received the order yet but have heard great reviews. The benefits are supposed to help with hyperpigmentation. It seems like it's moisturizing on the skin. I won't be frequently using it everyday because I don't want it to make my skin sensitive due to its lightning properties. Fingers crossed that it helps with the acne scars and hyperpigmentation on my face.
As a first step cleanser, I really like this particular make up remover. I personally like the sake scent, and I find very little goes a long way. I prefer gel or cream based make up removers over oil, and this one is perfect. I would recommend something else for any waterproof mascara wearers, though. You'd definitely want to follow up with a second cleanser or face wash to remove any leftover make up. The bottle is a great size for value, though the lid seems a little flimsy (should be fine if you're careful!). Really happy that iHerb has the Kikumasamune range, great for those who have converted to sake skin care! For those unfamiliar with sake based skin care, I wouldn't recommend this as you'll likely find the scent too strong. However, from experience the scent in this product is really normal for Japanese sake skin care,
I have used a lot of cleansers but this one is my new favourite. It's non-foaming but I find it still cleans really well. If I'm wearing makeup I do remove it with micellar water first. My skin is looking amazing with this line.
Good : It doesnt dry out your skin
Bad : It has a VERY strong sweet smell that you might not like. The formula is also quite watery so you end up using more than expected even though it is a 200ml size.
I find that its OK but there are better choices in this price range IMHO.
According to the product overview, it is not clear if this is supposed to act as a first or second cleanser, so I have checked the manufacturer’s website. This is the FIRST CLEANSER aka makeup-remover.
I don’t use a lot of makeup, so I cannot say if this will break up hardcore makeup, but for me, it works perfectly fine. It also decently melts away daily SPF, cleans all dirt and residue.
I massage it lightly on dry face, then add a few drops of water to my palms, and then massage the face for a couple of minutes to emulsify and start melting the makeup. Then I rinse it all off with warm water and continue with a second cleanser to wash away any residue.
It has strong bubbly-sake scent which fades away quickly. It does not sting eyes which is always a plus. It doesn’t dry skin at all.
It can also be used as a morning hydrating cleanser if preferred. It is a great option for those who avoid oil cleansers and prefer balm-like make-up removers.
It extremely budget-friendly, giving the amount of product – 200gr.
I am not sure how well will it work with heavier makeup, maybe it will require to repeat the process or to remove makeup with micellar water first.
My skin is normal to combination, 40yo.
So this is a great face wash, its very soft , it does NOT strip my skin at all unlike some other face washes. I also use this all over my body, you get 200gram which is quiet a lot. Right after washing my face with this, i can instantly see how brightened my face is. It has a very slight sake smell, but it doesnt linger. The ingredients are great in this facewash( the entire kiku masumene for that matter has great quality ingredients). I am buying one for my mom too its that good.
