My dermatologist suggested dealing with my menopausal/teenage breakout pizza face with Japanese skin care products which are apparently differently formulated to other brands. Yeah right. Anyway, Shiseido were doing a promo in my local dept store so I got the basic cleanse/tone/moisturise combo and after a few days I am noticing an improvement so we shall see. Anyway, I also got the Shiseido BB cream and I'm very impressed. It's light and goes on very easily, more like a lotion than a cream or foundation with a nice natural finish.
