The final skincare revolution ladies and gentlemen is finally at your fingertips. I say this because not only did this product take over 20 years of formulation to ensure absolute perfection but it also focuses on current skin concerns along with the support of boosting natural skin functions.
Of course, by now you are wondering what is this ultimate product that I am talking about and thus let me present to you Shiseido's latest; "Ultimune"; the one and only power infusing concentrate that directly focuses on maintaining and boosting the immunity of Langerhans cells.
|To achieve the perfect skin|
In order for me to not get too technical with my terms, Shiseido has developed the Ultimune Complex (a creation balance of three ingredients - Bulgarian rose water, aqua in pool and glucan) in order to create a fine support to Langerhans cells (these cells process antigen materials to the immune system) that have been weakened by environmental factors, aging and emotional cells.
Simply put, be it drying, oily, aging, pigmentation or rough skin; this Shiseido Ultimune targets all while maintaining and boosting the balance of your natural skin.
Power Infusing Concentrate has gone under more than 400 trials to perfect and impeccably, you will notice after a first few applications; your skin becomes instantly smoother and more supple.
The first key to this immediate effectiveness is its rich, condensed texture which pleasantly surprised me as it quickly absorbs into the skin. It also has a smoothing layer of moisture that protects the skin throughout the day that gives it quite a soothing feel to experience.
|Introducing Shiseido Ultimune|
You'd be surprised but the Shiseido Ultimune is made purely out of ingredients that are powered by plants. You see, to protect the skin from impurities and oxidized sebum, Shiseido turned their attention to the astonishing power that keeps plants thriving; even in proximity to external hazards.
Hence, a unique botanical cocktail was made; which had a power blend of Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, a common anti-oxidant and herbs from both East and West, perilla and wild thyme which are quite known for their strong anti-bacterial properties.
Fragrance wise, it is masterfully designed to conjure two pleasurable sensations; hence having a green floral scent which is both relaxing and energizing to the senses.
I had the pleasure of sampling this products for two full weeks now and the difference is quite amazing. Always conforming to dry skin, flakiness and roughness; I am proud to say that my skin is now very soft and supple. I do believe it is also brighter.
|Absorption and swatch|
The product has a little bit of a watery substance hence the quick absorption but what I love about it is that it does not leave the face with a sticky sensation. However, don't completely take my word for it; let's see the difference below.
Before & After Application Result
As you can see, before the application there are tiny bumps all over my face. Even though the skin is not prone to pimples or pigmentation; you can see that due to dryness it is uneven; under-nourished and all-together rough. It's not a very pretty sight to see; but it is skin that has been exposed to environmental threats, emotional stress and aging.
Now the second picture is after the end of two weeks; or 16 days to be exact. I was actually in shock when I saw the difference in this picture after it was taken; as the end result was amazing. Keep in mind that there was absolutely no color edits whatsoever in this photograph so what you see is Au Natural. My skin was evened out to a much brighter tone and I had more youthful looking skin. I also found that my skin had a smoother surface and the dry areas on my face were gone.
For me; I am at loss for words on how to explain how great this product works for the skin; and I honestly thank Shiseido for the warm introduction to it. Application of course is best used consistently during the mornings and evenings, after cleansing and balancing the skin. However if you are using it with other serums, do apply the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate first, to enhance the benefits of following treatments.
This product is officiating it's global launch tomorrow in all Shiseido stores and counters on the 1st of September and retails for RM255 for 30ml and RM355 for 50ml. The ambassador of the new Shiseido Ultimune is actress Izara Aishah and I reckon there is going to be a high demand for it as it does work very well so if you do have the time; do go and check it out once it has launched.
