Yay or Nay? | Shiseido Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother

On Shiseido's latest

You know how it is when we come across new products that just revolutionize your skincare routine? Well, in terms of that, the latest launch of Shiseido's Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother takes the cake.

Discovering the product a couple of days ago, the claim for the Smart Filtering Smoother is that it improves shine and visible pores instantly. From we can tell you, this skincare item acts like a serum, with a finishing touch that creates photo-ready skin.

The Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother

Retailing at RM140 each, the technology used in this product combines oil-targeting micro powder evenly into a serum base with special dispersion technology which makes it possible for the formula, when blended into the skin, to selectively deliver powder to the pores.

The texture

Now as you can see, the texture for this is extremely light and velvety, plus upon gentle patting motion (not rubbing it in), it creates this blurring effect that immediately absorbs excess sebum to make the pores less noticeable.

How To Use the Shiseido Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother:

1. Use as the last step of your skincare routine or over your base makeup.
2. Smooth a small amount (one pearl-sized drop per use) onto your fingertip and lightly pat it over areas of shine and pore concern until well blended.
3. The oil-controlling effect can last up to 6-8 hours.
4. The light texture can be worn alone or over makeup.

The visible results on targeted areas

A good example of this would be to take a look at the picture above and observe the difference of visibility of shine from the right to left cheek. You would notice that on the left cheek, the shine has been fully mattified down, where else on the opposite end, there is a tinge of it there.

The difference is even more noticeable on makeup wear, and when used on the nose with a lot of sebum, the product suppresses shine and minimizes visible pores throughout the day too.

When applied on the full face in yellow light

On overall, the product definitely sets to impress and with the blurring effect looking really good both on and off camera, the results are indeed there. On estimate, one bottle can last you up to 3-6 months if on a daily usage, and since you are only using a pearl size drop at each time on targeted areas,  it would be a good beauty investment to add into your makeup pouch at any time.
