I have dominantly dry skin and powder is something that I don’t hold in a high regard. The Shiseido Baby Powder has been raved for years and I got one so I decided to see what the buzz is all about.
In a tropical country like the Philippines, sweating is inevitable.
I normally only use powder on areas that I sweat from like my neck or hairline.
I have minimal oil build-up on my T-zone so I used the Shiseido Baby Powder on it as well to give you guys an in-depth review.
Shiseido Baby Powder
Available in Lazada BUY HERE
The packaging is very cute because it’s ornamented with “baby” colors.
Enveloped in a plastic case with a twistable plastic cap, the powder is well-protected.
Shiseido Baby Powder comes with a puff so I’m assuming that it’s also good for the face.
The words written on the back are in Japanese.
Ingredients list is unknown and hard to find online.
From various reviews I’ve read, it’s gentle and can be used on babies.
The packaging is very lightweight although it’s a bit bulky and will take some space in your handbag.
The cap is very easy to open and the baby powder is easy to dispense.
The puff that the Shiseido Baby Powder comes with is very soft and feels good on the skin.
If you are looking for a mirror, don’t.
Price is around 100 PHP in Japan.
After all the import taxes, travel and other fees, it’s at around 300 PHP by local sellers (which is quite fair).
Scent of the Medicated Baby Powder is milky and very pleasant.
The texture is a bit grainy but not abrasive.
The shade is white but it disappears after being blended.
The main reason I use powders is because of sweat.
My skin type is dominantly dry (Know your skin type for FREE), but I hate how I sweat on my hairline and neck after doing my makeup.
It did a great job in absorbing sweat as I didn’t experience any in the first hour.
I usually sweat after applying makeup in around 10 minutes.
My t-zone didn’t oil up for 6 hours.
- Pressed-powder form (handy when traveling or retouching)
- Cute packaging
- Pleasant smell
- Effective in controlling oil and sweat
- Not easily accessible (just online or bazaars)
- Bulky packaging
- No SPF
- Makes pores more visible if not used with a liquid foundation or concealer
Shiseido Baby Powder is a must-buy if you have oily skin.
Even with the “tubo” or added price, it’s still more affordable and better than most products out there.
I don’t have a need for it but I’m pretty sure it can help an oily sister out.
Hoard it if you go to Japan or have a friend or family coming from the land of the rising sun.
