If you can’t get enough of this radiance-boosting formula, try the larger 50 ml. size.

Shiseido

Birchbox Breakdown

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. A powerful and protective botanical blend, including antioxidant ginkgo biloba leaf extract, Japanese shiso leaf, and wild thyme promotes healthy-looking skin. Meanwhile, the formula’s fresh, green floral scent both energizes and relaxes.

Morning and night, smooth evenly over clean face before applying serum and moisturizer to boost results.

Maximum absorbing power

On the first application, it felt like my skin absorbed this with 100% effectiveness. Many anti-aging products seem to sit on the skin but this one sink but not this one. My skin feels much more hydrated.

Under control

My skin has been veering off both sides of the spectrum, from Sahara-dry to teeny-bopper blemished as I come smashing into middle age. This product has come to my rescue as a sample in May's Birchbox, and just in time. It's under control, pretty much. No amount of deep breathing and positive thinking has been able to accomplish this. Buy the product.

Soothing
SampledPurchased

I got a sample of this in my box and couldn't get enough of it. It is a little spendy but goes a long way and worth the high quality that it adds to my skin. I put it on at night and I could tell the difference in a few days.

Love This Product
SampledPurchased

I received a sample of this and had to buy the bottle. It has so many good purposes and you put it on after you cleanse your skin. There is no harsh smell and it leaves your face smooth so the rest of your skin routine can go on nicely.

The consistency is nice. It is very easily absorbed. I have only used it for a few days, so I am not sure about the benefits, but it feels great on.

I'd never heard of this product until BB. I love that it goes on so clean. It's not greasy or heavy.

Absorbs well, does not feel oily. My skin felt great on the days I used it. The smell is nice. Good for my enlarged pores. Will likely purchase the full size.

I love this product. I have replaced my Primer with this this product in fact. I was amazed at how soft and smooth it makes my skin even without adding my usual moisturizer.
