Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate - 50 ml

We’ve heard “The best defense is a good offense” in many a sport reference, but we think it’s just as appropriate for skincare. Shiseido has taken charge with this concentrate, which enhances skin’s defensive power against signs of aging from both external and internal factors (think: dryness, air pollution, UV rays, and stress). It works hard to help strengthen so skin can fight age-accelerating damage—for a supple, more glowing complexion.

Wasn't moved by this product. I probably won't buy it anytime soon

not sold on this product
Sampled

I wasn't even sure what this product was for, hair, face, body? The packaging was not great. I work in the skin care industry and I'm not sure if it is a serum or what? Not going to be purchasing this.

too expensive and has alcohol
Sampled

I didn't notice anything magnificent about this product, and I hated that it contained alcohol. Perhaps, if I used it longer, there would have been results....but it is very expensive

Not happy with ingredients

I am all aboard on the Asian beauty trend train, and generally I'd be so excited to get a Shiseido sample. But THIS... ugh, just ugh.

The second ingredient is alcohol, so this stuff is loaded with it. The following ingredients are glycerin, dimethicone, and butylene glycol... ho hum, BORING! The interesting ingredients don't appear until after phenoxyethanol, which is capped at 1% in US formulations. Vitamin e, rose water and beta-glucan sound great to me, but they're less than 1% of this serum (again, most of which is alcohol & water.)

Now I stilltried this serum despite my ingredients misgivings, and texture wise it's okay I guess. I did not see any results whatsoever over my normal serum. In fact, after one day at the zoo getting lots of sunshine (using spf of course) it actually burned when I put it on after cleansing. No bueno.

Invitation for breakouts...

This product made my skin feel very dry and pasty. My skin felt like I had a film covering it and to top it off I began breaking.

Disappointed

I used this product once and then realized I hadn't checked the ingredient list, which I always do. Turns out this has parabens. No thank you! Can't speak much to the effectiveness as I refuse to use it again.

not for everyone

I real liked this product at first..... After about the 3rd use my skin started to rash so I stopped using it cleared up so I just gave it to my friend. Not for people with sensitive skin

not sure what this does

To be honest I don't understand what this product is for. Does it replace lotion? when do I put it on? I tried it twice but didn't notice a thing.

Not for sensitive skin

I liked the feel and light scent of the product but found it dried my skin significantly after two uses.

Allergic reaction

I tried this on 2 occasions. The first time my face felt a little itchy. The second time I broke out in hives. I have never had a reaction like this to any skin care so was very surprised.
