Shiseido has been a brand which I have used products from since almost a decade, either they were deluxe samples, then the products which I loved and purchased, either one or a few, the products have always been in my skincare routine. One of the products which I have repurchased a few months back is the Shiseido Eudermine lotion which I just checked that I have not shared much about, so it is on this list for my future posts on Shiseido. In this post, I am sharing few products from the brand which I have been testing and loving since last few months. I attended a very informative session about the new launches and the products this year in May and finally able to test a few products. Products include Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, Shiseido Essential Energy Day Cream SPF 20, Shiseido Deep Cleansing Foam, Shiseido Clarifying Cleansing Foam, Shiseido Extra Rich Cleansing Milk, Shiseido Treatment Softner, and Shiseido Treatment Softner Enriched.
Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate strengthens the skin’s natural powers of defense, enabling it to build its own beauty. It enhances the benefits of skincare routines that follow. Smooth, supple, and with less fine lines – skin radiates with a healthy look. ‘After 20 years of research, 32 global patents, and 65 international beauty awards, Shiseido has made a breakthrough discovery that boosts your skin’s natural ability to protect itself and preserve your beauty with Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate.’
Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is Shiseido’s best-selling serum which is even stronger than the previous formula with ImuGeneration Technology. It is powered with anti-oxidant rich reishi mushroom and iris root extracts, to strengthen skin, restore firmness and defend against daily damage for the skin. The new formula features an improved dewy texture that sinks quickly into skin, for a longer-lasting, silky smooth fresh feeling. It is suitable for all skin types. Use Ultimune as a pre-treatment to enhance the efficacy of your moisturizer or serum. I see makeup apply more evenly and flawlessly over the softer skin. ‘Use every morning and evening after cleansing and before moisturizing. When using with other serums, apply ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate first. Push the pump twice to dispense formula onto the palm of the hand and smooth evenly over the face.’
I have been really liking how light-weight it is, does not feel sticky, absorbs quickly, and gives a beautiful glow to the skin. I even took this with me for my vacation and it kept my skin smooth, fresh, and supple. My skin is combination, acne-prone and this serum is a really nice addition to my skincare routine. This is something I would definitely buy again, love the way it makes my skin feel and look.
Shiseido Essential Energy Day Cream SPF 20 is a silky smooth energizing hydrator with broad spectrum SPF 20 to protect against UV rays and pollution while counteracting dullness and dryness. It absorbs quickly into the skin, making it visibly smooth, deeply hydrated skin that glows from within. Essential energy is something your skin needs when it senses damage but needs the energy to activate it. The ReNeura Technology inspired by neuroscience reawakens skin’s sensors to better detect and transmit signals. It contains Ashitaba which is known for it regenerative powers, the vitamin-packed plant is known to protect mitochondria from damage and boost the energy efficiency of nerve cells to smoothly send signals. It has a nice uplifting fragrance with a hint of rose and jasmine combined with fruity scents of pear, slightly sweet lime, and a wave of orange. It fades away pretty fast and is not strong, very subtle. The cream is suitable for all skin types. If you see the picture, I have almost finished half of the jar, I do reach out for it very much. I like how it makes my skin look, very dewy and radiant, sits nicely under the makeup, does not breaks out my skin, does not feels greasy, and there is added sun protection. It is a multi-purpose moisturizer and perfect for the busy mornings, something that works and protects, will definitely buy again.
Shiseido Deep Cleansing Foam is a rich, creamy foaming cleanser that protects skin’s hydration as it whisks away trouble-causing impurities, pollutants and makeup for smooth, radiant skin. It contains Micro White Powder and White Clay to effectively remove excess skin-dulling surface cells, pollutants, and oxidized substances. It is formulated for all skin types and featuring InternalPowerResist technology, this cleanser helps remove impurities while softening and strengthening the skin. It can be used daily, in the morning and evening as the first step in the skincare regimen. It does not dry out my combination skin, it just gives my skin the feeling of being clean and smooth. I use it as a first cleanse in the morning and as the second cleanses in the evening.
Shiseido Treatment Softner is a 24-hour softening lotion that improves the appearance of fine lines, enhances skin’s clarity and refines texture. Formulated for Normal and Combination to Oily Skin and featuring InternalPowerResist technology, this softener helps strengthen inner skin defenses to protect skin from signs of aging and external stressors. Softening skin is a key step in the Japanese Beauty ritual to balance skin before treatments. It is used in the morning and evening after cleansing. I have been using this day and night and it has not irritated my skin or caused any breakouts. I do feel my skin is clear, refined, and soft since I started using it. One pump on the cotton pad is all I need for my entire face and neck. This softener is to be applied after cleansing and before the serum in the skincare regime.
Below are the products I have not tested as they are formulated for the dry skin types. I am featuring them here for you guys to know that there is an option for dry skin and for which, the same products formulated for combination skin are working for my skin.
Shiseido Extra Rich Cleansing Milk is a gentle foaming milk cleanser formulated for dry Skin and featuring InternalPowerResist technology, this cleanser helps remove impurities while softening and strengthening the skin. Moisturizing ingredients remain on the skin for a refined, dewy and plumped feel. It can be used daily, in the morning and evening as the first step in the skincare regimen. As it is suitable for dry skin, I have not used this but do plan to try it during the winters when my skin needs all the care and moisture.
Shiseido Treatment Softner Enriched is a 24-hour enriched softening lotion that improves the appearance of fine lines, enhances skin’s clarity and refines texture. Formulated for Normal, Dry and Very Dry Skin and featuring InternalPowerResist technology, this softener helps strengthen inner skin defenses to protect skin from signs of aging and external stressors. Softening skin is a key step in the Japanese Beauty ritual to balance skin before treatments. To be used in the morning and evening after cleansing. As this is formulated for dry skin types, I have not tested this but featuring it here so that you know there is something for all skin types and also for which the counterparts for the combination skin do work for me.
Overall, I am really happy about the new launches from Shiseido, there is something for every and all skin types. Having a regular skincare regime is what anyone needs to see the difference, for me, as the time has passed, skincare has become more and more important.
