Shiseido is a super-elegant, high-end brand that hails from Japan and I have always been interested in their products. I was sent some new, soon-to-be-released items for review and so was eager to try them.
Future Solution LX Universal Defense SPF50+ ($90).
This product promises to protect skin with a water-resistant formula and prevent dryness caused by UV rays. It is also targeted to prevent the appearance of dark spots, roughness, wrinkles and uneven tone, and to promote healthy looking skin. Ingredients include petals from Gentiana urnula, a rare, Alpine flower that thrives in inhospitable environments, super yeast extract (for increased vitality), Uji Green tea extract, to prevent cellular damage caused by oxidation, and Fruit Star extract to prevent collagen deterioration.
I liked the idea of SPF and the water resistant formula, which can be used on both face and body. I applied the product under a light foundation before I took a run around a local park on a steamy, sunny day. It provided fabulous sun protection that stayed put on my face! It also has a very rich, creamy feel to it, which I very much appreciated since many formulas with such a high SPF have a sticky, paste-like consistency. Not this one! Pricey, but worth it.
Bio-Performance Glow Revival Cream ($100 for 50 ml, $120 for 75ml).
This product targets skin’s capillaries to improve the three causes of capillary breakdown and restore skin’s circulation to achieve smooth, glowing skin. It also is said to improve uneven tone, wrinkles and pores. I used this twice daily for a couple of weeks, both in the morning and evening. I loved the light, fluffy texture and pale pink color and it was a pleasure to put it on my skin. I did not notice any change in my skin tone, pores or wrinkles, but I found that it did an excellent job of reducing redness from capillary break down, which is reason enough to continue using it.
Bio-Performance Glow Revival Eye Treatment ($65).
The product claims to visibly reduce uneven skin tone, dark circles, wrinkles and dullness around the eye area by targeting optimal capillary functioning that typically declines with age. It contains Vitamin C and the patented Multi-Capisolve 1124, and the design of the applicator is drawn from the traditional kassa massage method. I did not find that it lived up to all its claims though use is recommended for a month, so I will continue. And it is still a rich, emollient cream that made the delicate under eye area feel pampered and cosseted.
