Review: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
A couple months back, I had the opportunity to attend a preview and learn about this new, revolutionary product from Shiseido that had over 20 years of research behind it. We are always talking about anti-aging and prevention, but what this product also helps to do is that it helps bring back the lost time, age and moisture in your skin – hence, it’s slogan for the campaign – Beauty Bounce Back.
Shiseido’s new Ultimune Power Infusing Serum is a one-of-a-kind, power infusing, skin boosting concentrate for youthful looking skin. As with most serums, the Ultimune serves to supercharge your skin, keeping it smooth and youthful. What makes the Ultimune stand out from the rest is it’s new research that focuses on strengthening our skin’s immunity so that it is less susceptible to external factors such as pollution and stress. This is similar to how we consume Vitamin C to boost our natural body’s immune system from common cold and other illnesses.
The official claim from Shiseido:
The ultimate concentrate for enhancing skin’s inherent multi-defensive power against signs of aging, environmental factors and daily stress. Day by day, your skin becomes smoother and more resilient making wrinkles less noticeable and your complexion appears to glow with more radiance than ever. Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is for all women of all ages. It works with your skincare to boost the benefits of your regimen, no matter your concerns.
Shiseido’s exclusive Ultimune Complex helps boost defensive functions that have declined in Langerhans Cells, the cells that hold the key to promoting skin’s multi-defensive power. Now your skin can achieve its greatest beauty potential.
Immediately, skin feels full and supple, with a silky-smooth surface.
In one week, skin appears to glow more than ever.
In 4 weeks: firmness and resilience are improved, making wrinkles less visible.
Apply morning and night after cleansing and softening the face. When using other serums, apply Ultimune first to enhance the benefits of the following treatments.
The packaging feels really luxe and I like that it comes in a pump that is “controllable” if you know what I mean. The serum is fairly watery and it absorbs almost instantly into the skin. I have been incorporating this into my night time routine and my skin feels smoother and slightly firmer than before. I am hoping that it will eventually help shrink the pores on my nose (fingers crossed).
Overall, it is quite a nice serum, an especially good one to have if you like to layer on multiple serums because this will boost your skin and block out the external impurities so that your other serums can work more effectively.
Price: $105 for 30ml
