Shu Uemura Skin Perfector
Okay so I'm an oil convert, and I was all for trying out the latest Shu Uemura Skin Perfector. It is an oil elixir that awakens the senses through an addictive skincare experience. Made from 8 essential oils and 2 botanical oils the Skin Perfector is a multi-purpose skincare treatment that can be used as part of your skincare routine as well as a makeup base to get that radiant, glowing complexion.
The natural aromas of the Skin Perfector is a sensorial experience with a blend of essential oils - lemons, green mandarin and peppermint awaken the senses while lavender, sage and geranium gives you that relaxing experience. The botanicals of jojoba oil and rosehip oil works to soften the skin as well as enhances the skin's moisture level.
Housed in a cool black gold ombre bottle, it comes with an auto dropper dispenser. It draws the right amount of oil as you twist to open it and all you have to do is press the top to dispense and locks into place when you screw it back on. Convenient. The texture is light and it absorbs easily. Although I am all for oils now, I don't exactly go wild with it. I stick to just enough.
The Skin Perfector is always the final step to the skincare routine. Used at night it works as an intensive overnight oil mask that protects the skin. I only use two drop after my moisturiser and wake up in the morning with my skin feeling soft.
In the morning, it works as a makeup base to ensure foundation goes on smoothly. It helps to soften the appearance of fine lines as well as any dry bits, in my case acne scars that are in the process of healing, so that it covers up a lot easier. Any foundation and makeup that goes on after just glides on with ease. The result, my complexion appears a ad brighter and smoother. My complexion didn't get much shinier throughout the day except for the t-zone that experienced migration and eventually the foundation on my nose just went off. The rest of my face though did stay put and it required the usual blotting.
On the whole after two weeks of use, my skin feels soft and I like how it makes my makeup look. Long term use however promises more refined, supple and plump skin. The Skin Perfector can also be used to enhance luminosity and obtain light reflection, add radiance to brows and to infuse natural glow at the décolleté area.
Shu Uemura Skin Perfector is available at all Shu Uemura stores and outlet, it retails at RM260 (30ml).
