Senka Perfect Whip (専科 パーフェクトホイップ) is the best selling face wash products in Japan and it’s also popular worldwide. Senka is an affordable cosmetics range from Shiseido which products are available in Japanese drugstores. In addition to the regular one in a blue package, now Perfect Whip Collagen In (Pink) and Perfect Whip White Clay (White) are also available.

I have used Senka Perfect Whip before, and I really like the texture of the fluffy and thick foam which cleanses off the clogged pores and brightens up the skin tone after washing. I have dry skin, but it didn’t dry out the skin after washing. I’d recommend you to use the face wash with the foaming net to create fluffy foam and wash your face gently.
