Shiseido's products are pretty mild and best for the Asian skins. I like it when I first started using the Shiseido's skincare when I was just a teenager. But when I was in Canada for my university studies, the product proved to be insufficient for the harsh weather in Canada. That's when I began using Clinique's moisturizer. Clinique cleansing routine is not so great as I feel the soap is way too acidic but its moisturizer is great for extreme cold weather. Shiseido's other great product is its lipstick and nail polish. I still use these 2 products. Love them as much as Shu Uemura's.
