I was one of the lucky influensters to receive the Shiseido Ibuki Voxbox that included a full size of the new Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother and some other Shiseido skincare products.
Shiseido has always been one of my favorite brands and I have never been disappointed by any of their products before, that’s why I was really excited to see how everything in this box will work for me!
Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother
This formula acts like a filter that cancels shine, smooths and blurs the skin for a fresh matte look. It has a very lightweight consistency that sets very quickly on the face leaving the skin looking matte while reducing the appearance of pores. As I have extremely oily skin with some dry patches, I used this as an emergency product whenever I want to take photos and reduce the shine and oiliness on my face. It can be used as a last step of your skincare routine but it does not act as a primer and it does not affect the longevity of makeup. This formula did not emphasize any dry patches or texture on my skin that’s why it might work well for dry skin too.
Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
This product is marketed as a pre-treatment that helps in enhancing the effects of all the skincare products that follow. It has a very lightweight formula that absorbs quickly into the skin leaving the face feeling softer.
I used this product under my regular moisturizer for about a month now and I didn’t notice any huge difference in my skincare application or results. Unfortunately, this product did not work very well for me and it was not very effective.
Shiseido Ibuki Beauty Sleeping Mask
This is an overnight leave-on gel mask that is supposed to let you wake up having the most well-rested and radiant complexion. It has a light formula and a nice scent that is the same as many as other Shiseido products.
If applied generously, it might leave a tacky feeling on the skin which might not be comfortable while sleeping. That’s why I find that it works better when it is applied with a light hand.
After using this mask, I woke up in the morning with a very hydrated and radiant skin. My face looked healthier, awake and my skin felt very smooth. I was very satisfied by the result that I got and I will definitely check the full size of this mask in the future.
Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist
This refreshing gel mist is supposed to help correcting the shine, refresh and re-moisturize the skin during the day. It is formulated with the Exclusive PhytoTarget Complex that supports skin’s natural moisture factors and it contains an Anti-Shine Complex that reveals fresher-looking skin.
After using this mist for several times, I noticed that it did not work well for cancelling the shine on my skin , however, it helped giving me a more refreshed look without making my skin look greasy.
I also like to mist it all over my face after I finish my makeup, so that it helps by cancelling any powdery effect and making everything melting together nicely.
Overall, I was really happy that I had the chance to try these Shiseido products. The Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother and the Beauty Sleeping Mask are my most favorites of this box! I really enjoyed the results that I got from these products and I will definitely repurchase in the future.
