Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizer N
Posted April 30, 2009on:
Targets dry, rough skin lacking vitality. Bio-Performance is a time-fighting skincare collection, set apart by Shiseido most advanced biotechnology research. This line included their exclusive Super Bio-Hyaluronic Acid to deliver superior moisture.
The consistency of Advanced Super Revitalizer N is luscious and emollient yet it won’t be heavy on face. The cream appears pale pink-beige in color and its mild fragrance reminds me the fragrance of baby powder, pleasant and mild. The cream was easily spread over, settle instantly with non-oily smooth film, but need to massage properly into skin, else the cream would just sits on skin. Use a toner before the application will help the skin to be more receptive, especially when my skin is dry.
I started to use this moisturizer in January where weather in Bangkok is hot and dry (27-38oC, 35-63%), air is very polluted in downtown area because no raining since November last year to February, plus I was sleeping in air-conditioned room at night, in addition, my skin is thin and sensitive……etc etc, hence I really need a good moisturizer that can well moisturized and be soothing. Indeed, Advanced Super Revitalizer N kept my skin moist, soft, firm and calm. I often wake up on next morning with moist and bouncy soft skin. Dry fine lines has been moderately softened.
I had experienced Shiseido Revital Cream Science AA that calmed down my allergy bump on face, so I thought this Super Revitalizer might do the same, and I was right. I developed few red small bumps from a DHC serum, and I only applied the Super Revitalizer on cleansed face, my newly-developed red bumps subsided overnight! That’s amazing … but it didn’t have any effect on the few-days-old bump and acne, except make them mature earlier.
Overall the consistency is great, the fragrance is nice, good to retain moisture, the long-term moisturizing effect could be expected. On the other side, the glass jar is heavy, the price is expensive, potentially comedogenic, no potent anti-aging ingredients since it claims for dry, rough, lacking vitality skin.
I would recommend this Advanced Super Revitalizer to those are not acne-prone, dry to very dry skin/mature skin, or better use in dry season. My combination-dry skin had suffered occasional oil zits from the A.S.Revitalizer and many blackheads in both hot and cooler months here.
Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizer N costs 2600 baht for 50ml in Thailand, I paid 2340 baht after 10% discount. Used it every night for 2 months then left the remaining (about 1/3) in the jar that I’ll reserve for cooler month in year end, because it just too heavy for combination skin in warmer months.
Rating : … ))) Good. Unlikely to buy again.
