Review: Shiseido Ibuki Products (Gentle Cleanser, Softening Concentrate and Protective Moisturizer)

Two months ago, I won Sample Room’s Shiseido Ibuki Blog Contest. With that, I got a full-sized Shiseido Ibuki Set (as featured in this post). 😀 The whole set includes:

  • Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser
  • Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate
  • Shiseido Ibuki Protective Moisturizer
  • Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream

I use the cleanser twice a day while I use the softener and the moisturizer for my morning skincare routine. I super duper love the whole set!!! 😉 I just love how they take care of my skin and complements the makeup products that I use.

For this post, I am going to make a review on the first three items since I already made a review on the Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream.

First off, the review for the Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser

Product Description (taken from the Shiseido website):

An extra gentle cleanser that lathers quickly into a rich foam to remove impurities and harmful excess sebum without stripping away skin’s essential moisture.
Skin feels refreshed, and silky smooth to the touch.

You just need a small amount of the Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser. It lathers really well and can thoroughly remove all impurities in the face. I like that this product does not give a dry and tight feeling afterwards. Skin feels so clean and so smooth.

Sample Room: Review of Shiseido Ibuki Products

How do you make sure that you, as a person, are ready for anything?

Being ready for anything means that you are up to the challenges that you may encounter and that you can surpass all of them. You wake up not exactly knowing what would happen within the day. You may have plans but there may be times wherein these plans don’t exactly go the way you have planned it to be.

For me, everyday is a challenge. I am a wife to my loving husband and a mother to my two beautiful daughters. I also have a full-time work in the IT industry which demands a lot of tasks to accomplish and deadlines to meet. I also make time to mingle and socialize with my friends (people I met when I was still studying and those I met in the corporate world). I write and share my beauty reviews and interests through the posts in this blog. Of course, I also need to have my “me-time”. Lastly, but definitely not the least I have to have time for God. So yes, everyday is a must to be ready for anything. I need to have time for all of them.

My Amazing College Friends


My Ever Fun-to-be-With Office Colleagues


How do I do it?

  1. Prioritize: Make sure that the most important thing has your most focused attention.
  2. Positivity: No room for negative stuff. Bad vibes will only make you feel discouraged and you won’t have the energy anymore to do what’s right and good.
  3. Be well-rested: You need to rest. If not, you won’t have the drive to do the things you need and want to do.

If you are ready for anything, the same thing should be for your skin. It should be armed with the right products that would give care and protection to it. This is what the whole Shiseido Ibuki line is dedicated to do: to make your skin ready for anything.

When Sample Room announced that they are going to have Shiseido Ibuki products available in their website, I was one of those who are excited to try them out. On the first day of their release, I ordered a sample of the Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream. After a week and a half, when I checked if there are any available products, I chanced upon the Shiseido Ibuki Purifying Cleanser and I ordered a sample too.
