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. 😀

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. 😀

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?


(picture taken from the BDJ Box Facebook page)

Then… It has been finally revealed! The full-sized item is from Shiseido! I am super duper happy that I got an August Golden Ticket!!! *heart thumping!!!*

At the back of this box’s cover sleeve, it has a picture of the newest product from Shiseido: the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate! 😀

Here it is!!! 😀 This product alone (priced at Php3,500) made this month’s box super worth it because it has already went way beyond the box’s subscription price. 😉

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. 😀

Review: Shiseido Ibuki Products (Gentle Cleanser, Softening Concentrate and Protective Moisturizer)

Two months ago, I won Sample Room’s Shiseido Ibuki Blog Contest. With that, I got a full-sized Shiseido Ibuki Set (as featured in this post). 😀 The whole set includes:

  • Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser
  • Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate
  • Shiseido Ibuki Protective Moisturizer
  • Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream

I use the cleanser twice a day while I use the softener and the moisturizer for my morning skincare routine. I super duper love the whole set!!! 😉 I just love how they take care of my skin and complements the makeup products that I use.

For this post, I am going to make a review on the first three items since I already made a review on the Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream.

First off, the review for the Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser

Product Description (taken from the Shiseido website):

An extra gentle cleanser that lathers quickly into a rich foam to remove impurities and harmful excess sebum without stripping away skin’s essential moisture.
Skin feels refreshed, and silky smooth to the touch.

You just need a small amount of the Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser. It lathers really well and can thoroughly remove all impurities in the face. I like that this product does not give a dry and tight feeling afterwards. Skin feels so clean and so smooth.

Sample Room: Review of Shiseido Ibuki Products

How do you make sure that you, as a person, are ready for anything?

Being ready for anything means that you are up to the challenges that you may encounter and that you can surpass all of them. You wake up not exactly knowing what would happen within the day. You may have plans but there may be times wherein these plans don’t exactly go the way you have planned it to be.

For me, everyday is a challenge. I am a wife to my loving husband and a mother to my two beautiful daughters. I also have a full-time work in the IT industry which demands a lot of tasks to accomplish and deadlines to meet. I also make time to mingle and socialize with my friends (people I met when I was still studying and those I met in the corporate world). I write and share my beauty reviews and interests through the posts in this blog. Of course, I also need to have my “me-time”. Lastly, but definitely not the least I have to have time for God. So yes, everyday is a must to be ready for anything. I need to have time for all of them.

My Wonderful Family


My Amazing College Friends


My Ever Fun-to-be-With Office Colleagues


How do I do it?

  1. Prioritize: Make sure that the most important thing has your most focused attention.
  2. Positivity: No room for negative stuff. Bad vibes will only make you feel discouraged and you won’t have the energy anymore to do what’s right and good.
  3. Be well-rested: You need to rest. If not, you won’t have the drive to do the things you need and want to do.

If you are ready for anything, the same thing should be for your skin. It should be armed with the right products that would give care and protection to it. This is what the whole Shiseido Ibuki line is dedicated to do: to make your skin ready for anything.

When Sample Room announced that they are going to have Shiseido Ibuki products available in their website, I was one of those who are excited to try them out. On the first day of their release, I ordered a sample of the Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream. After a week and a half, when I checked if there are any available products, I chanced upon the Shiseido Ibuki Purifying Cleanser and I ordered a sample too.
