Review: Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi guys!

I just want to share with you guys the gift of my brother. He asked his friend who is coming here in Manila from Japan to buy me Shiseido Tsubaki shampoo and conditioner since I've been asking him about it (Are they good quality products? Do they work great? How much are these in Japan? etc) laately. I've been hearing good reviews on them and I really wanted to try. And then he surprised me last week that I'll be getting one! I was really happy at that time but I was so surprised and ecstatic that he got me 2 sets for free! I'm really lucky to have a very generous brother haha :)

I can't take a clear shot of these babies so I got a picture from the net :)

Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo

What i like about it
- comes in a very pretty and big packaging
- smells really good but not overpowering
- not that thick in consistensy so it is not hard to rinse off
- easy to lather on hair

What I don't like about it
- not that moisturizing if I use it alone
- the lather doesn't stay long so I don't feel that cleansed afterwards

Over-all Rating: 4/5 - If only it will create more bubbles, I will give this 5 hehe..but since more lather = more SLS, then i guess this is better right? :)

Will I buy this again? If I finished these 2 bottles of shampoo and I still like it, then I will get another one.

Shiseido Tsubaki Conditioner

What I like about it
- comes in a very big and pretty packaging
- smells so good and clean
- it lessened the frizziness of my hair
- keeps my hair soft and smooth for 24 hours
- makes my hair a little straighter than usual (air dried)
- my hair feels light and non-greasy
- I did not experience any hair fall (unlike when I use pantene and creamsilk)

What I don't like about it
- it is not available in any Shiseido stores locally

Over-all Rating: 5/5

Will I buy this again? Yes! I think I found my HG conditioner in this baby yay! :)

Till next time bye!

I've finished up mine! I don't know why I haven't reviewed this, I guess it hasn't came to my attention, it works ok for me but I still went back to my Changpo :)

Ida - yeah! hehe it looks expensive even if they are really affordable in Japan. I read that SLS are the main lathering ingredient of shampoos, soaps, detergents, etc.

Mitch - haha actually, he's not really my bro by blood but still my family really considers him part of the family for so long that it's normal already for me to introduce him as my can get this from sellers in but they have mark ups already. I think the 550ml pump bottle cost P700?

Crystal - try it! the conditioner is the heaven sent for me haha :)

Nikki - I haven't tried Changpo yet..where can you find it? :)

Wow! I didn't know that they had a shampoo/conditioning. Where have I been? Hahaha =]

But such great reviews! I should look for this when I head to Japan.
