Review: Shiseido WASO Skin Care

The new skin care line of Shiseido is called WASO and is intended for younger skin. So I had to try out the novelties of course. Today I would like to tell you more about my experiences.


WASO Shiseido Review


Shiseido is a Japanese brand and WASO means:

和 [wa] — gentleness, harmony

想 [so] — inspiration


Shiseido – WASO: Quick Gentle Cleanser


Shiseido - WASO: Quick Gentle Cleanser


Let’s start with the cleansing. The WASO Quick Gentle Cleanser by Shiseido is a liquid gel and can be applied directly to the skin without water. It foams without water during application. Then rinse and the make-up is gone. I also like the scent very much, it is very flowery and elegant. For the eyes, however, I continue to use eye-makeup remover. The active ingredient is honey, which is known to have valuable antibacterial properties.


Shiseido – WASO: Soft+Cushy Polisher


Shiseido - WASO: Soft+Cushy Polisher


After cleansing, gently remove dead skin cells with the Soft+Cushy Polisher. It is treated with the aid of vegetable-based cellulose granules in a creamy, tofu-like formulation. The peeling I applied to moist skin. Also the smell of this peeling is wonderful. Tofu was used as the ingredient, since this contains lecithin, which occurs in the human cell walls and keeps the skin supple and firm.


Shiseido – WASO: Fresh Jelly Lotion


Shiseido - WASO: Fresh Jelly Lotion


The Fresh Jelly Lotion of WASO is an exceptional beautyproduct. Because it is a form converter, on the skin the gel turns into a cream. The cream is very light and get’s quickly absorbed by the skin. It provides moisture without greasing. Included are ingredients of Kikurage- or white ice mushroom it is well-known in Japan for a long time as a food to get beautiful skin. Water sucks it up like a sponge.


Shiseido – WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Cream


Shiseido - WASO: Clear Mega-hydrating Cream


The WASO Clear Mega-Hydrating Cream by Shiseido is a cream with gel texture. It is non-greasy and moisturizing. I personally love this cream and the other products already due to the great fragrance, if you like good scented cosmetics, you should take a closer look. The cream is great for me, as I tend to oily skin and therefore do not need oily creams. The power of the carrot is used here with its nutrients.


Shiseido – WASO: Color Smart Day Moisturizer Spf30


Shiseido - WASO: Color-smart Day Moisturizer SPF30


Now a product for those who like to leave the house without make-up and still have a beautiful and radiant skin. The WASO Color Smart Day Moisturizer Spf30 has sun protection factor 30 and is slightly tinted. The cream contains very small color spheres, which burst when applied and releases their color. Depending on the skin tone, however, this could be too dark, best to test it on the skin. At least an easy-to-go product for every day use. Here, too, the carrot was used as an ingredient.


WASO Shiseido


A new and young line this is WASO by Shiseido, there are also other products which are e.g. additionally matt the skin. On occasion I will be gladly to test them as well. The whole line captivates with an incomparably great smell and special consistencies. Especially the Quick Cleanser and the Jelly Lotion are something completely new to me.
