I’m always a bit hesitant to try out new skincare, fearful that any change in my daily routine will lead to breakouts and other reactions. But when I was approached to try out Shiseido’s new skincare line, Ibuki, there was something about the description that caught my attention.
Launched this month, Ibuki skincare is designed “to build skin’s resistance to UV rays, dryness and daily stress by infusing it with long-lasting moisture.”
Sounds great, yes?
The products I’ve tested so far are the Ibuki Purifying Cleanser, the Refining Moisture Enriched, and the Eye Correcting Cream. I’ve been introducing the products into my routine slowly in case I run into any issues, and so far, after a few weeks of use, there are no issues. The cleanser lathers beautifully, and my skin feels clean and soft after I wash it. The moisturizer feels rich but not greasy, while the eye correcting cream feels light. There is a slight scent to the products which I’m not a huge fan of but overall, I’m liking the texture of my skin. As for whether or not it’s living up to its promise of ‘ready for anything skin’, I can’t give it my verdict yet.
Yes, I’m pleased with my experience so far. Very pleased. But the biggest test will be when the colder temperatures start to hit, which in Canada is not too far off in time. Boo. Looking forward to seeing how these products stand up to the test. Stay tuned!
