Review: Happy Birthday Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo and Conditioner, the Muse Loves You!
How far are you willing to go for beauty?
I’d dig a hole to China if it meant I could get my favorite beauty goodies or in this case that hole would lead straight to Japan and an abundant supply of my favorite shampoo, Shiseido Ma Cherie.
My normal hair products of choice would be from Lush Cosmetics since I tend to avoid silicones in my haircare however I do indulge in Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo, Conditioner, and styling products more often than I’d be willing to admit.
It’s one of my very favorite shampoo lines from Shiseido and it’s celebrating its first anniversary this year so value packs of the products are available all over drugstores and specialty beauty shops in Japan.
I think the novelty of the product is the fragrance. I’ve tried the entire line including styling products and they perform quite well but there isn’t anything particularly special about them outside the delightfully strong fragrance. Whenever I use the products I always end up getting compliments and questions about what perfume I am wearing when in fact it’s my hair that they are smelling!
I’m not really sure what the notes are but it’s delightful fresh floral blend that’s quite unique and special. The scent is really strong so a single wash will leave your hair heavily perfumed. I normally follow up with the hair fragrance as well which makes the throw even stronger. The scent lingers way long unlike any shampoos I’ve tried in US drugstores.
I do wish Shiseido would consider offering Ma Cherie and some of the other hair lines in US drugstores le sigh!
The products here were gifted to me by a friend but I’ve seen many of them available via E-bay, Sasa, and other online shops if you want to try but airmail could prove a tad high for larger bottles like you see here so perhaps try a sample set before committing to a full size.
Absolutely love Ma Cherie, total Muse Approval.
