Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturiser

Is quite an expensive one retailing for £42 for 75ml. Although I think 75ml is a generous amount and the bottle looks lush and the actual product is good quality, it is expensive isn't it?

If you have the cash to splurge however, it's a beaut this one. Ibuki is Shiseido's range of skincare geared towards a busy, city lifestyle and to combat pollution, sleepless nights and to make your skin look amazing even though you're dehydrated and are lazy when it comes to removing your make-up before bed.

Apparently that's quite a few of us hence such skincare can come handy if you're a regular traveller and want your skin to look awake, energised and ready to face the day. It also targets large pores and helps skin look more soft and photoshopped if you know what I mean. More claims include to even out skintone, prevent breakouts and quench dry skin.

I personally think one moisturiser cannot work for dry and oily skin, dehydration and large pores at the same time. I don't think this would even out pigmentation. From my use of this, I feel it's more geared towards dehydrated skin types and those who are lazy with their skincare routine and are used to sleeping with make-up at night. I didn't notice any particular pore shrinking qualities. Having said that, it didn't result in any breakouts on my skin and it's been clear since a while now.

What I am trying to say is that if you have dry, dehydrated skin that is dull and lustre lacking - this is brilliant to replenish it with enough hydration and radiance. I have a few friends who are so lazy with their skincare routine that they don't moisturise and exfoliate for days. If you're one of them, this is an effective moisturiser to rely on as it works quickly and is quite potent at what it does. For the lazy skincare gals, you can't expect to have gorgeous skin by relying on a drugstore moisturiser once in a while. Try this out in Boots or at a Shiseido counter!

It's a light lotion that feels lovely on the skin and leaves it looking dewy and moist. I personally like to wear this with some SPF and a light tinted moisturiser to get the best out of it.

If you like to invest in luxurious skincare that will work well with sensitive skin, jot this down in your wish-list right now.
