Best Serum 2016- Shiseido Bio-Performance Lift Dynamic Serum
As a skincare-obsessed woman, I have encountered countless products throughout my life, especially during my time as a features-writer for AsianFusionGirl. There are quite a few products out there that are great at what they do and even more that are a complete waste of your hard-earned money. A handful of skincare products stand out above all others as those magical elixirs that act as your secret beauty potion, the ones you want to hide from the world and hoard for yourself.
Shiseido’s Bio-Performance Lift Dynamic Serum is part of this highly exclusive group of “beauty potions” so powerful in its efficacy that you almost wonder if you’re not imagining the transformation taking place before your eyes.
The first night I used this serum I was surprised by its thicker consistency. Unlike most serums, this is neither thin liquid nor creamy. When pumped onto your finger, it sits right there, a droplet like a dense vanilla mousse. Upon spreading over my face, I knew this was a winner at first touch. It was as if my skin was immediately and suddenly blanketed with the softest of satin. The next morning, that satiny sensation was still there.
Over the course of one week, I noticed a visible decrease in the few fine lines I had around the smile area. Over the course of one month, pores were smaller (not even one of their promises), fine lines a thing of the past and most importantly, an overall softness to my skin as if a photographer had professionally blurred my real face instead of in photographs.
What are the ingredients in this super serum?
- TruStructiv™ technology helps harness skin’s natural restorative powers.
- Bio-Renewal Complex helps rejuvenate skin for a firm and resilient look.
- Bio-Corrective Complex helps improve the appearance of sagging, loss of resilience and visible pronounced wrinkles.
- Super Bio-Hyaluronic Acid N replenishes skin with deep moisture.
Shiseido’s main promises with this lifting serum, as its name suggests, is to counter any sagging, tighten up our skin and provide a deep level of hydration. Does it deliver on these promises? On the hydration promise- definitely yes, given the outstanding results I witnesses on myself. Does it deliver on the sagging? I can’t say since I don’t have any sagging yet. These types of promises take many months and sometimes years of testing to determine true efficacy and for someone like me who is in her 30’s and fortunately has pretty good skin to begin with, the point is to be proactive instead of reactive.
When I don’t use it even for one day, my skin feels something huge is missing, as if that silky, healthy canvas has been stripped of its nutrients.
This Shiseido Bio Performance Lift Serum has had an undeniably spectacular effect on my skin on the fronts of hydration, pore tightening, tightening overall and providing a silky canvas. With its proven potency, I’ll take a sure bet that after years of using this, hopefully I won’t be encountering any sagging until I’m 80 (if I get there).
As with all Shiseido skincare products, this too is dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types. At US $95 for a 30ml/1 oz bottle or $130 for 50ml/1.7 oz, this is one powerful serum and hands down the best of 2016 that is a staple in my daily regimen and not going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
