It seems like I despise Senka Perfect Whip because of its high pH in the past, but in the end I always ended up finishing it and tried other variants from the range, lol! So, this Shiseido Senka Perfect Whip Collagen in is the latest foaming wash that I used for the past 3 months religiously every single day, and I will tell you how I think about in this post!

I don’t know if it’s just me, but it feels like this Shiseido Senka Perfect Whip Collagen in comes with more hydrating formula. It doesn’t dry my skin out as much as the regular Perfect Whip. It has similar texture and the same whipped foam, but I personally think that it’s way more comfortable to be applied on the skin. I couldn’t confirm on how much the pH of this facial wash though because I lost my pH strip, but judging from the whip, I think it has similar pH to the regular Perfect Whip. However, then again, it claimed to reinforce skin’s barrier function, so maybe, they might have smaller pH. I couldn’t find the information online, so if you do have information regarding the pH of this cleanser, please do inform me in the comment section below! 😉
Well, as for the hero ingredients, collagen, I think it’s no longer a secret that brands tend to put the most famous ingredients on their packaging while in fact it listed down below in the ingredient list, and the collagen ingredients is no different. Therefore, if you expect to have the benefit of collagen, I don’t think that you should expect it from this facial wash.
Is it a bad cleanser? Well, I have to be honest that I actually enjoy using this cleanser. However, I think people with massive dehydrated skin should be aware that most of Japanese facial wash, particularly this Senka Perfect Whip tend to have tend to have high pH and have the higher chance to dry out your skin. So, doing a test patch before actually using it might be actually needed.
Nevertheless it’s a pretty good cleanser if you have balanced skin already, plus it’s quite affordable at around $6~$7 and it lasted me for 3 months. Well, have you tried this cleanser before? What do you think about it? Please do share it in the comment section below! 🙂
