Now that I actually have 2 similar cleansers to compare, I can see the difference in each product.
I have been using the Shiseido one for over 10 months now. I swore it was the best cleanser I’ve ever used because it not only gave me that squeaky clean feeling, but it also helped keep my face light!
Now…after I got the chance to use the Kanebo cleanser, I must say the Shiseido one isn’t as great as I thought! (and to say that I was even highly recommending it to Miss Kimberly Tia too..lol. Sorry girl!!)
For one, the Shisedo one doesn’t foam up and give a good lather. No bubbles unless you use a big ol’ glop.
Comparing the 2 cleansers, the Kanebo one is WAY better! The Kanebo cleanser has a light rose smell, a little goes a long way, and its foamy and it doesn’t leave my skin in that dry-squeaky-clean type way like the Shiseido one does. Once washed off, my face is CLEAN and is also left smooth and supple feely!
Price difference according to Ohayousa.com:
The Shiseido one is $9.99 and the Kanebo one is $7.99.
I got my Kanebo cleanser @ Mitsuwa on sale for only $4.99. It’s on sale right now still so if anyone is interested, hurry and run out there!
I was actually @ Mitsuwa to pick up another one of the Shiseido one since I was running out, but then I got distracted with so many other colorful and beautiful prodcuts that I got steered away from the Shiseido Naturgo cleanser. I’m glad I got steered away because now I found a better cleanser that is similar to it but is better in its own way!
I was skeptical at first when I saw the Kanebo cleanser because it was on sale but then noticed how many were already gone from the shelf. I read the packaging, held it around a bit, put it back, then decided to just get it since it was on sale for only $5 so it wouldnt hurt so bad if it didn’t work out! =)
I would highly recommend this Kanebo cleanser to anyone who has oily/combination skin like myself and who also wants some whitening power.
Just a friendly reminder: It works for me, but just to be safe on my end…use this product at your own risk. =)
