Initial Thoughts: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

Hi guys!
Guess what?  First day of the week and I'm sharing a skincare product review!  Something unusual since I seldom jump from one skincare to another!  It takes an awful lot of time for me to insert new skincare product because for the fact that I have sensitive skin.  

A couple of months ago, I received a full sized 30ml bottle of Shiseido Ultimune  Power Infusing Concentrate because I am a Sampleroom partner (thanks guys!)  This concentrate has been sitting on top of my vanity for quite sometime and it was only last month October 20, 2014 to be exact when I've decided to give this a try!  What gave me the courage?  Well, the fact that I'm on Shiseido Ibuki and the whole line worked for me!  So I stopped on ALL Ibuki products and actually used ONLY THIS for several nights (around 1 week) to really test if this product will cause me any allergic reactions.  

Thankfully NONE.  And here's my initial thoughts on using the said concentrate.

According to Shiseido ---

"The ultimate concentrate for enhancing skin's inherent multi-defensive power against signs of aging, environmental factors and daily stress. Day by day, your skin becomes smoother and more resilient making wrinkles less noticeable and your complexion appears to glow with more radiance than ever. Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is for all women of all ages. It works with your skincare to boost the benefits of your regimen, no matter your concerns."

This concentrate is said to work with your current skincare regimen and like I said earlier, It tested this ALONE for the first week then infused this product together with my other toner and moisturizer.

On the side note, the packaging is made of glass (amazing!) and it comes with a pump!  Making it even more amazing and I like to use 1-1.5 pumps for the whole face!

After more than a month usage, here are my thoughts ---
  • The product smells amazing making me excited to apply this day in and out!
  • The texture is almost like "liquid" just a notch thicker.
  • The product gets absorbed into the skin in no time leaving skin feeling refreshed and non-greasy.
  • Can work together with my other skincare products (even from different brands)
  • Never had any breakouts using this product.
  • Skin looks brighter after 2.5 weeks usage.  The effect could be slower on my part as I only use this once a day during nighttime.
  •  I don't have visible wrinkles for now so I can't seem to see how effective this product is in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin appears more plump and healthier.
  • The redness on my skin did not disappear though.
 Overall, I personally think this product is an added "boost" to your current skincare regiment.  You MAY skip this step and proceed with your regular moisturizer but on days that I prefer light skincare (because of a very active toddler sleeping beside me), I tend to pick this up more often.

Thanks Sampleroom, I was able to try this amazing product!  No wonder I read lots of raves about this!

Have you tried adding concentrate on your current skincare regimen? 
Do you think you need this extra step?
I am seriously very busy and too tired to do all skincare steps as of the moment so I guess I'll stick to using 1-2 products (max) at a time.  Usually moisturizer or this concentrate and an eye cream at night!
