So excited to do a review on this Shiseido night cream since I've used it every night for about a year now! I have previously tried night creams and night gels from Shiseido's other lines, but I can confidently say that this is the best one that I've used so far.
The brand and the product
The brand Shiseido, originated from Japan, is immensely popular in Asia - especially in Hong Kong where I grew up. Its skincare products and makeup are particularly good on Asian skin. Shiseido has multiple lines of skincare products, each targeted at a different age group with different needs. This particular night cream is from The Skincare line, which the sales told me is for younger customers with just basic moisturising and hydrating needs. The cream is 50ml and comes in a matte glass bottle. You put this on after using the cleanser and toning/balancing lotion.
Texture and quality
The cream is fairly rich but it's not thick and sticky like some of the richer creams that I have used before. I wouldn't describe it as lightweight, but my skin absorbs the cream quickly. My skin is smooth and soft after putting it on. I usually put this on right before I go to bed, and when I wake up the next day, my skin is still moisturised and feels soft. I would definitely recommend it.
The scent is very light, almost non-existent. I can't really describe what it smells like, but it's neither flowery nor musky. Barely noticeable.
£46.30 on amazon. Similar price in retail stores... You can get it in department stores on the cosmetics floor, like House of Fraser, Selfridges, Harrods, John Lewis, etc.
