Like many girls at a young age, I remember sneaking into my parents bathroom and playing with my mother’s makeup. Amongst her mascara and lipstick (which was used to draw on the walls and couches multiple times-sorry mom!) she always had her collection of Shiseido products in her vanity, just as her mother did. Shiseido has been used in my family for generations, so as a longtime Shiseido enthusiast I was so excited when I was asked to partner with them on IBUKI, their skincare line designed specifically to address the unique skincare concerns of the millennials.
As millennials, we lead demanding and fast-paced lifestyles that can include late nights, unbalanced nutrition, and stress combined with external factors such as UV rays and pollution. And mix in some traveling in the schedule and it can make for some very troubled skin! It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle whenever possible (like drinking plenty of water throughout the day, exercising, getting enough sleep, etc.) but there are often factors we can’t control so we need an extra bit of help to keep our skin looking its best 🙂
My schedule can often be very crazy, and with my late, late nights it is extremely important to let my skin heal while I sleep with the Shiseido IBUKI Beauty Sleeping Mask. I have oily skin so I love that it’s a non-greasy, gel based mask that also keeps my skin hydrated. Among other nutrients, it’s formulated with Vitamin C and E which I’ve noticed really leaves my skin looking brighter each morning. This mask will especially be a necessity for the upcoming drier, colder winter months. Two of my other favorite products include the IBUKI Multi Solution Gel and the IBUKI Eye Correcting Cream. Both of these are to be used in the last part of your skincare routine, so after washing my face and exfoliating in the morning, I like to dab on a bit of the Correcting Cream under my eyes and use the Multi Solution Gel on my t-zone and any acne problem areas. And it’s great because the gel can also be used over your make-up so it’s perfect for a mid-day boost or those skin emergencies.
The Shiseido IBUKI line has many great products so I wouldn’t be surprised if I add some to my collection soon. And just like my mother and grandmother before me, there is a place for these favorite Shiseido products among my vanity as well 🙂
