One important thing I like about LBBB is that they give you OBVIOUS preview of what you will be expecting in the upcoming box. Like for August box, i already know it’s gonna be a Shiseido box when i subscribed in July – the only thing i didn’t know is that … It’s such an excellent box!!!

The preview message for this Shiseido Box:

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Is your skin ready for anything? In the month of August, we prepare you for anything that comes your way! Come what may, we shall always put our best face forward! Summer exuberance is here to stay!

Shiseido produces some of the most well-loved skincare and makeup items that are guaranteed to give you that summer glow!

Research shows that stress and lifestyle factors causes skin surface cells to shrink, and causes recurring skin problems.

Shiseido’s exclusive Shape Memorizing Cell Technology returns cells to their ideal condition and inhibits future shrinkage, to boost skin’s resistance.

Building skin’s resistance is the quickest route to smooth, trouble-free skin. And your own cells have the power to boost your skin’s resistance to stress. How? By memorizing their ideally moisturized state, and maintaining it.

It’s not easy to change your lifestyle for you skin. So Shiseido changed skincare for you lifestyle. Ibuki line builds skin’s resistance to UV rays, dryness and daily stress by infusing it with long-lasting moisture. Now you can support your skin’s own inner power to resist problems and stay ideally balanced!

WHAT IS IBUKI?
Ibuki is a Japanese word for inner strength – a buried resource that endures tough conditions and emerges beautifully.

Think of nature’s ability to resist harsh winters, and bring out new life in the springtime. Like nature, your skin protects and nurtures the strength inside, even as your environment changes. But a fully packed schedule, and a demanding, fast-paced lifestyle can be rough enough on your skin to weaken it.

What are “stress” to your skin? Mental stress, UV ray, dryness, lack of sleep, night life, air pollutants and unbalanced diet can cause stress to your skin..

When i say blotting PAPER… It really is a piece of paper!! Not like those blue “elastic” sheet from (Johnson & Johnson) or translucent like tracing paper kind thin sheet! THIS-IS-REALLY-PAPER but probably a little more flimsy~ LOL!

As I’m here posing stupidly, my blotting paper is already working~

IMG_5068 IMG_5066

See the oil on my forehead?? Absorbing power, disgustingly 4 stars! (Hahaha! BTW, sorry for the poor image! I have to focus on the blotting paper in order to see the “oil” thus my face ended up like so dark..)

Cleansing sheet is approximately my palm size but definitely enough for one face! It smells very good (probably a typical Shiseido scent) and isn’t that sticky as compare to the previous cleansing sheet i tried!

IMG_5060 IMG_5059

My waterproof gel eyeliner is wiped clean in a few seconds. No sticky sensation nor skin irritation. For a more efficient but not recommended way of removing my makeup, i cover my face with the cleansing sheet and start wiping like I’m trying to towel dry my face.. I can see my BB cream came off, eyeliner all cleaned up.

It’s good but not good enough for me to purchase it again..Cleansing sheet is never my cuppa tea. I still feel that my makeup is not removed after using it.. 😦
