During my birthday last July, I got sample sizes of Shiseido’s Pureness line from a friend. I tried it for a few weeks and noticed how it improved my skin, so that convinced me to buy the full-sized bottles.
The entire line, including a facial wash, toner, and moisturizer, cost me about PHP2,800. Quite a hefty price so I expected it to be good. Lo and behold, as the title should have given away, I was sorely disappointed.
A few weeks after using the product, I noticed that I was breaking out on my forehead and on my chin. At first, I made excuses for it stating that maybe it was just because of the insane weather coupled with the fact that I made a huge switch in skincare product after years of using just one brand.
I pledged to at least use it for a month to really test its mettle. Eventually, I ended up using it for two months and noticed that I even got pimples on my cheeks now, which means that the situation is very bad since I rarely get them on my cheeks.
So as soon as this batch finishes, I shall be going back to my old skin care line. Thank God for Tony Moly’s Tomatox since it helps dry all my zits.
This is definitely a very disappointing product, especially coming from a good brand like Shisheido. What a waste of two thousand pesos.
Let me know if any of you have tried this product as well and what you think about it. I want to know if what I’ve experienced is exclusive to me.
