Shiseido skincare has played a big role in my skincare routine previous year, you could have read all about my favorite moisturizer called “Essential Energy” here. This spring they are coming out with a new skincare line: White Lucent. Because my previous experience was so good, I had very high hopes for this one too! Discover Japanese most iconic secret.
Before we move on to the technology and ingredients in these products, I just wanted to point out how absolutely gorgeous the packaging of these new products are. Pictures definitely don’t do justice here! If you ever see them in the store, take a look at them and try out the texture too. The collection’s subtle, pink and white ombré packaging is reminiscent of the cherry blossom’s unique rosy glow and the shape of the packaging is inspired inspired by Japanese tea bowls used in traditional tea ceremonies.
Shiseido’s White Lucent range is inspired by sakura, Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms, to create a luminous, even complexion. The new White Lucent products feature the Sakura-BRIGHT Complex – a blend of potent ingredients inspired by the discovery of new factors responsible of pigmentation troubles that lead to dark spots, dullness and uneven skin tone.
Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Gel Cream – 75 ml – € 98,-
After cleaning my skin in the morning, I apply this smooth gel cream before applying my makeup. It’s suppose to provide 24 hours of moisture and target existing dark spots and dullness. What I like so much about Shiseido moisturizers, is the texture. The fresh feel of it, truly wakes me (and my skin) up straight away. I always have suffered from an uneven skin tone, especially around my nose and the center part of my face. I have been scared to try out brightening products, because I somehow thought it would make my skin look even paler than it was. But since I trust Shiseido as a brand, I definitely wanted to give it a try. And I’m so happy that I did! The texture of the gel cream works absolutely amazing if you have combination skin, it doesn’t take long before it absorbs it. I really feel that my skin has a really nice glow lately and that it looks a lot brighter than it used to.
Shiseido White Lucent Overnight Cream & Mask – 75 ml – € 98,-
The Shiseido White Lucent Overnight Cream helps to reverse damage incurred during the day. Even though Shiseido describes it as a rich cream, it still feels very lightweight like a gel on your skin, just like the brightening gel cream. The best part of this overnight cream is that you can also use it as an overnight mask for an intense treatment. Just spread a generous amount of product evenly on the face and let it sit while you go to sleep. I like to do this on the weekends, and during working days, I use it as a night cream.
You can find the new Shiseido White Lucent skincare line in stores now!
