When I was trying to find a good cleanser that cleans deeply yet also improved the health of my skin, I came across Shiseido's Extra Gentle Cleansing Form. I've been using Shiseido products for many years now and while some have improved, others have not or have stayed the same. I really like the gentle cleanser as it has a great scent and it has sort of a creamy, grainy texture to it. It cleans off my makeup pretty well and it lathers really easily. I prefer facial cleansers that can do more than just clean and this facial cleanser didn't leave my skin feeling tight after wards but it did clean off the makeup pretty well. Effectiveness It cleans well enough if you're looking for something that will clean off makeup as well. Ease of Application Goes on really easily and smoothly. Although it would have been nice if it has a dispenser but I realize that most high end beauty products do not include dispensers for whatever reason. Scent Shiseido always has nice scents to their products and this one was really gentle and not too heavy on the fragrance.
