Shiseido Skincare Bio Performance Radiance Glow bonus


For my skincare concerns, I choose the Bio Performance Glow Revival Set for my skincare bonus. You can choose from five different sets.

I’ve been a long time fan of the White Lucent Cleansing Foam, it’s perfect for days that I feel grimy and need a deeper cleanse. Leaves me squeaky clean without striping my skin. The Ultimune is also a favorite of mine that I discovered this past December. Literally a magic concoction that hydrates and plumps the appearance of my skin immediately. I also can’t wait to test out the Bio Performance Glow Revival Eye Cream and face cream.



Here’s what I picked out for my recent Shiseido skincare haul. All of these products have been in my skincare rotation for some time. Trusted and true therefore perfect for back to school or recharging for work.

Shiseido Skincare Ibuki quick fix mist

Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist $25

This compact on the go mist is perfect for midday touch ups. It helps reduce shine and add hydration to the skin. When my makeup looks like it needs a pick me up, I like to spray this to freshen up my look. Seriously a miracle worker for the woman on the go.

Shiseido Skincare sun protection eye cream

Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 34 $32.50

One of my go to daytime eye creams because of the spf. This is a mix of both chemical and physical sunscreen. Lightweight and works perfectly under makeup or alone. You also get a ton of product for the price! My recommendation is to apply all around the orbital bone.


Light Diffusing Powder gives a brighter look to skin around the eye area.


A rich eye cream that minimizes the appearance of UV-induced lines and wrinkles, promotes resilient-looking skin and helps prevent signs of premature aging around the delicate eye area. The concentrated cream texture defends against dryness while enhancing skin’s radiance.

    Hey Serein. I had a question about the Shiesiedo eye cream. It has both physical and chemical SPF. I have read and heard so much about how to stay away from chemical SPF, but I don’t always believe what I hear (read). What is your take on it? Obviously you use it, lol, so you like it! But, what do you think about using any sort of chemical SPF? I really hope to hear back from you. Thank you.

    Thank you SO much for answering so many of my skincare questions in your instagram live yesterday! I honestly am very new to skin care. I have always washed my face, but never with quality products. Thank you for always going in depth with all of your videos. I think that this is really something to invest in…makeup is amazing but your skin is so important! Thank you Serein!
