Review: Shiseido Medicated Baby Powder

Every time I’m on the go and don’t have the time to put anything liquid on my face and blend it out evenly, powders are my savior. I’ve had my fair share of good face powders, but none of them were like Shiseido Medicated Baby Powder.

Honestly, I didn’t know that Shiseido has this powder, I haven’t heard about this product until some online sellers posted it on their shops. I was curious, but not enough for me to buy and try it myself. Happy Hauler sent me Shiseido Medicated Baby Powder to try and review, and I must say that I’m impressed. 

Packed in a bulky jar with a twist-to-open cap, Shiseido Medicated Baby Powder contains 50g of the product in it. It comes with a puff that’s really soft and surprisingly worked well, but no mirror included. The packaging reminds me of this:
I have read from a few beauty forums that this powder can be used on babies. So, to those who have sensitive skin out there, you are safe with this powder! The texture is soft but a bit chalky – just like the normal powders you use at home. At first I thought that it might have an unpleasant scent since it is medicated powder. To my surprise, it has a very mild and barely noticeable smell of milk. 
This is actually a pressed powder, maybe because of some unavoidable circumstances happened during the shipment, it broke and became half loose and half pressed powder. I don’t really mind the mess, though.

The powder itself is white, it’s not translucent, it’s simply white, so expect a slight white cast on your face if not blended well. As much as I love the puffer, I still prefer using a big fluffy powder brush to apply this powder.

What’s really impressive is how Shiseido Medicated Baby Powder controls the oiliness of my t-zone. It keeps me shine-free for 3-4 hours. It’s very light and very versatile. I tried using it as a body powder on my baby cousin and it worked! If you’ll ever use it as a setting powder, remember not to use too much product.

Overall, this is a very nice powder. It has really good oil control properties and doesn’t dry out my skin. You might have a problem buying this one for you, it’s only available at a few online stores.
