Shiseido is a beauty brand with high competence in skincare. The brand comes from Japan and its roots go back to 1872, but I have been testing some of the high quality products for quite some time now and would like to introduce you to my latest favourites today.
Cleansing: SHISEIDO Deep Cleansing Foam InternalResist
We start with the cleansing. Facial cleansing is the first and an important step in my beauty routine. The SHISEIDO Deep Cleansing Foam InternalResist is specially designed for oily skin and skin that tends to impurities. It contains sebum-absorbing powder and intensive cleansing granules that effectively remove dead skin cells, dirt and excess sebum. The cleansing feels gentle but effective, there is no feeling of tension after application. The cleansing foam, is also enriched with Japanese Kirishima mineral spring water, rice germ oil and peony root oil.
Serum: SHISEIDO Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
One product that I have been using for quite some time is the SHISEIDO Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate Serum. It is the No. 1 serum from SHISEIDO and rightly so. The serum contains botanical extracts of reishi mushroom and iris root, which continuously strengthen the skin’s own resistance. In particular, the extracts of reishi mushroom contain antioxidants, which are polysaccharides (sugars) known to moisturize and visibly reduce signs of aging. I am also a big fan of the feminine scent consisting of rose and lotus notes and a green floral scent. The serum also contains Bulgarian Rose Water, Aqua in Pool and Yeast Extract, which protect the skin from daily damage and signs of aging. I use two pumps and massage it into the face and neck.
Moisture: SHISEIDO Treatment Softener
The SHISEIDO Treatment Softener from the InternalPowerResist line is a very special lotion. Its consistency as a gel-water mixture is particularly special. I apply the Treatment Softener is with a cotton pad. The Treatment Softener provides intensive moisture and is also suitable for normal, combination and oily skin. After application, fine lines are softened and the complexion is refined.
Eye area: SHISEIDO Essential Energy Eye Definer
All those who are at least over 25 like me have probably already noticed, the eyes age fastest, mostly you see the first wrinkles there. Therefore a good eye care is worth it to slow down this process. The SHISEIDO Essential Energy Eye Definer uses ReNeura Technology™, which stimulates the skin’s sensory receptors to counteract the first signs of aging such as dryness and fine lines. This eye cream provides 24-hour moisture, counteracting the harmful effects of digital screen work and visibly reducing dark circles, bags under the eyes, puffiness and fine lines. I apply the eye cream with the applicator and massage it in until the product has been absorbed.
Quick Care: SHISEIDO Benefiance Wrinkleresist24 eye mask
The SHISEIDO Benefiance Wrinkleresist24 eye mask offers intensive care for in between. The smoothing 15-minute express mask gives the eye area an immediate smooth, radiant appearance. The eye mask strengthens the skin’s resistance and reduces the visibility of existing wrinkles on the inner corner of the eye, lower and upper eyelid. I always place the mask on the desired area so that the highly concentrated care essence with pure retinol can unfold its effect.
