I looove trying new products because you never know when you’re gonna strike gold and find a new holy grail! So I was super excited to receive a few Shiseido products complimentary from Influenster to do a review. I’ll be honest I’ve never tried any Shiseido products, mostly cause I just thought it was like a mom brand you know? I am now realizing I was sleeeeepin’ on them big time..
1) Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother Serum
Ok forget that super complicated name, in simpler terms it’s a blurring product that reduces the appearance of pores, while making your skin smooth and producing less oil throughout the day. And coming from a person with oily skin, I can honestly say it does all three. I’ve been using it everyday for a week now, my skin looks noticeably smoother which makes my foundation look much more flawless and natural. Not to mention, I don’t have to touch up at all throughout the day anymore. It only takes a tiniest bit on your t-zone too, to create a smooth canvas for your makeup. If you have oily skin, I recommend this product 10/10!! I’ll definitely be buying a new bottle when mine finishes. The product does say it works for all skin types, so you can check it out if you have dry skin, I really don’t see it not working just as well. Click here to see it online.
2) Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate
The purpose of this serum is to slow down signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, etc.), so with that being said you usually don’t expect short term results with anti-again products!!! The whole point of them is to save your skin over a long period of time, and your early 20’s is the best time to start because they work as preventative products. Now onto the product itself, first off I am obsessed with the scent – to the point where I will repurchase it just for that reason. Obviously you will not see the results of the anti-aging treatment right away, but what I have noticed in the span of a week(!!!) is my dark spots fading and my skin looking brighter. I can only imagine the results over the next few months. It is a little pricey at $79CAD for a bottle, but hey cheaper than a facelift right? LOL. It also works for every skin type so I suggest asking for a sample at Sephora to test it out. Click here to see it online.
