Review: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

For today, I will be featuring the newest product from Shiseido that I revealed to you when I unboxed my August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks. I was one of the golden ticket winners in which I got a full-sized (30ml) bottle of the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. ๐Ÿ˜€

Upon seeing this in my last month’s BDJ Box, I just couldn’t remove my eyes on this product for about twenty minutes. I was just super happy to receive this and know that I am one of those who can get to try another amazing product from Shiseido. ๐Ÿ˜€

BDJ Box: Unboxing My August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks

Yesterday, I got a lovely surprise from BDJ Box. Those who were able to subscribe for the August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks already got a hint that the products would be all about haircare. Apparently, BDJ Box even gave a much, much, much bigger surprise for 100 lucky Bellas.

When I saw the announcement at the BDJ Box Facebook page, I really got so excited to receive my box to see if I am one of them. A full-sized item? From a trusted skincare brand? What is it?

Review: Shiseido UV Protective Foundation (Liquid and Compact)

Makeup junkies should keep in mind that the finish of the makeup should not be the only concern for buying a specific product. We should also take into consideration that the products we are using are also taking care of our skin.

The current summer heat could result to having a sweaty and oily face when we are exposed under the sun. Aside from that, there are dangers brought about by long hours of sun exposure. Although we are advised to stay indoors when the sun is out, there are times when it is inevitable for us not to get out. This is why it is really important to use products that have sunscreen protection.

Shiseido’s extensive research on sunscreen protection for their products is based on three development points:

Having those factors included in their products, Shiseido released new foundations that address our concerns with regards to saying hello to Mr. Sun.

I am super lucky because I got two out of three of these newly released foundations during the Sip & See of Shiseido’s SS2014 Collection: the Shiseido UV Protective Liquid and Compact Foundations in Light Ochre. ๐Ÿ˜€
