If you’re one of those who stock up on beauty products whenever you visit drugstores in Japan, we’re sure you’re familiar with the Senka Perfect Whip cleanser.
It has been the number one facial cleanser in Japan for 10 consecutive years. Plus, we know that beauty enthusiasts used to buy it in bulk whenever they visit Japan – until they were made available in Singapore a few years ago, of course.
This cleanser effortlessly whips up into a dense foam packed with microscopic bubbles to help you achieve ‘Suppin Skin’ – a no-makeup face which is clear, moisturised and blemish-free. Jam-packed with naturally derived white silk cocoon essence that protects and smooths your skin, it’s also boosted with double hyaluronic acid to moisturise and enhance skin softness.
Throw in Shiseido’s moisture-boosting Aqua-in-Pool formulation that strengthens skin barriers against day-to-day damage and you’ve got a dense foam cleanser that caters to every skin type. Enjoy the sensation of a soft cushion against your skin as the foam contains ultra-fine cleansing particles that penetrate pores easily to clear out impurities while keeping the skin deeply hydrated.
One reviewer on YesStyle raved, “I’ve discovered that you only need a slightly bigger than a pea-sized amount for the whole face. You first wet the palms of your hand and squeeze out the required amount, then you rub your palms until it feels tacky, after which you add some water to loosen it up. You continue to do this until you create enough foam for the face.”
“This cleanser is non-stripping,” she continued. “In fact, it feels rather nourishing on the skin in comparison to other cleansers that I have used in the past. I don’t feel like I need to rush and put on something moisturising afterwards. This is something that I will definitely recommend and will purchase again.”
Besides the OG Perfect Whip Cleanser, Senka has also added several variants to the range that cater to different skin concerns and types.
These variants include the Perfect Whip White Clay for a clearer and smoother complexion, Perfect Whip Fresh which includes Uji Green Tea to improve skin complexion by flushing out toxins from the skin, Perfect Whip White that inhibits melanin synthesis using Sakura Leaf Extract and Licorice, as well as Perfect Whip Collagen, which contains Collagen and Beauty Serum for younger-looking skin with each wash.
Perfect Whip for acne-prone skin is here!
And if you’ve been paying attention, you’d probably notice that a common skin concern faced by many of us in Singapore hasn’t really been addressed by the range of products. Yes, we’re talking about a cleanser formulated for acne-prone skin!
Last year, Senka came out with something suitable for acne-prone skin – the Senka Perfect Whip Acne Care. It contains Kyoto chamomile extract, an ingredient that’s unheard of in cleansers before this, which is known for its antibacterial and antioxidant benefits. This ingredient is also responsible for helping skin heal faster and preventing further damage to it.
A customer on Shopee reviewed the cleanser and said, “The product is gentle on the skin and doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry after use.” It’s perfect for targeting blemishes without zapping moisture from your skin, so your skin barrier stays healthy and strong.
