I have never been able to stick to one moisturiser to save my life, so it’s my mission to find ‘the one’, my Mr Right of the cream world. I was excited, as I always am, to try a new fresh pot of something that may potentially be the game-changer: Enter, the Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalising Cream. It seems the marketing bods at Shiseido have just discovered ‘words’ and got a bit carried away. Perhaps they want us to feel like we’re getting our moneys worth?
Firstly, let me get the scent out of the way, it’s flowery, but in old-fashioned way. I’m not a huge fan of smelling like my great-great aunt. The cream claims it is the ultimate strategy against premature ageing, and is specifically aimed at women over 30, and whilst I fall into that category, I’m not sure it worked for me. The texture and feel is heavenly, and there is a glow after I apply it….but that’s it. I’ve been using it for a few months now and my skin does not feel revitalised by it. For me, there’s not enough… how can I put this… there’s not enough meat to it, it’s too wishy-washy and doesn’t produce the results I’d expect from Shiseido. So, we won’t be going past the first date I’m afraid.
It’s not me, it’s you.
