Shiseido Revitalizing Essence Review

A bestselling softening lotion that instantly hydrates and visibly brightens skin without adding weight.

One of Shiseido’s most iconic products launched in Japan over 100 years ago, this illuminating and hydrating essence is an essential step in any J-beauty routine. The fast-absorbing, silky fluid instantly absorbs and retains moisture thanks to bio-hyaluronic acid and glycerin.

Exfoliating enzymes gently slough away dead skin cells, while amino acids nourish. Formulated for all skin types, this featherweight fluid used after cleanser preps the face and helps any serums or moisturizes layered over top penetrate deeper and faster.

The bottle is heavy red glass with a screw on plastic red cap. You dispense the lotion to cotton straight from the mouth of the bottle. Especially when the bottle is full , you do need to give it a few heavy shakes to get the lotion onto cotton. I need 5 generous shakes of lotion to cover face and neck.

I love this product and I am sure you will love it too! I have dry skin and this product really makes my skin glow. My skin looks healthy and is baby smooth when I use it.

Give it time and use the product 2-3 times a day . Overall I can say the texture , luminosity ,feel and hydration of my skin has been very good using this product. ( it is winter time for me with single digit temps and heating )

Now after using half a bottle , 2-3 times a day morning and evening.. I find that I do not need to apply any sort of moisturizer or facial oil before going straight to foundation in the morning.

I cannot imagine not incuding Eudermine into my facial routine now.

I really applaud Shiseido for keeping this product all these years ,for the elegant and classic packaging and for a product which does not require fanfare and advertising and YET works so so well.
