Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate...Working from the Inside Out!



Above: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate...harnessing the power of one's own immune system.
I have made no secret of the fact that I take vitamin supplements...as an educator, I am surrounded by germs at every turn and my daily vitamin (as well as extra Vitamin B and C) help to bolster my immunity to fight off potential illness.  It makes perfect sense, then, that skincare should also work to harness the power of one's own immune system combat damage including lines, wrinkles, fatigue and discoloration.  I recently had the chance to try Shiseido's revolutionary solution to this notion...with consistent use, the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate enhances the skin's defense system, yielding a stronger, healthier, more resiliant countenance.  Brilliant, no?

Kindly scroll on for more details, images, an ingredients list and the Bottom Line...

Above: It felt smoother, brighter and healthier!

This first-of-its-kind product is the culmination of over 20 years of research in its creation and development; designed to act as a stand alone skincare option or in tandem with other products, the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate targets specific areas of skincare needs including:
  • Skin Texture...it works to smooth and refine the surface of the skin
  • Skin Tone...it works to brighten discoloration to restore a more even canvas
  • Skin Contour...it works to lift and firm, creating a more defined facial contour; following this concentrate with a serum furthers this effect
The concentrate--which is appropriate for all ages and skin types (even sensitive skin like mine!)--is emollient and silky and I find that one pump is enough to cover my entire face.  Although it adds a bit of hydration, it is absorbed instantly and I can follow with serum, moisturizer and sunscreen for added defense.  I love the fact that it bolsters the power of my subsequent skincare choices, thereby making my lotions and serums more potent than if they were applied without the concentrate.  It has been a non-negotiable step in my routine as of late and I cannot wait to experience increased results as I continue to include it in my skincare process. 

Above: The full ingredients list. 
Above: A single drop of the concentrate...the texture feels like liquid silk and is absorbed immediately.
Above: My skin is ready to combat whatever comes my way.
Bottom Line: I am really enjoying my experience with the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate.  With results that are visible on the outside, regular usage has increased the strength and resilience of my skin, much like vitamins fortify me from the inside #beautyinyou.  The fact that it can be used in tandem with one's existing skincare regimen to heighten its power makes its wonder and utility all the more impressive.  My regular teaching schedule has commenced this month and my skin needs all the immunity it can get!  Highly recommended.  Check out Shiseido's Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate HERE.

  1. Can you share your layering process in regards to adding this to the SKII products you recently wrote about.
    Thank you

    1. Great question, Patti!

      Lately, I use the SK-II Clear Lotion (on a cotton pad), followed by the Facial Essence (a few drops pressed into my skin), followed by the Shiseido Ultimune and then primer and foundation. Of course, this could feel like a lot but the skincare layers are so thin (practically like water) that it feels weightless!
