IMBB Sponsored Product Review
First of all, a big thank you to the lovely IMBB Team for this opportunity. This is an IMBB sponsored product review. Shiseido is one of the brands that I have wanted to try and was very excited to pick this cream. In my last post, I mentioned that I have started using the Clarisonic and I am very happy with the way my skin has evolved. It deep cleans and hence the skin is prepared for deep moisturising. My face soaks the night cream instantly and the maximum results are visible quickly. I never go to bed with makeup on and follow my night time CTM routine religiously. Our skin is very precious and sensitive as we as we all love makeup, we have to take extra care to maintain its suppleness. A good night time routine is very important and plays a significant part along with good diet in keeping the skin hydrated and fresh.
Extend the look of youth with newly re-formulated Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream. Patent-pending Bio-Revitalizing Complex reinforces skin’s elastic fibres, the key to promoting skin’s resilience and firmness. Prevent the first stages of line formation with this richly textured, ultra-hydrating formulation. Apply after cleanser and softener.
Rs. 5450 for 50 ml.
It comes in a lovely, round shaped plastic container which looks like glass. I like the packaging and it looks nice on my dresser. It also comes with a small spatula and it becomes easy to scoop out the required quantity of the cream. My nails don’t get dirty and the product is not contaminated either.

My Experience with Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream:
As I mentioned above, I never go to sleep without CTM. When we sleep, our body recovers and if we use a good night cream, half the battle is won. In order to test this product, I skipped my toner and serum. I have been applying this cream right after washing my face at night to see the actual results and I am also using it in the morning. I must say I am impressed with its performance.
I have combination skin and as winters have hit Delhi, it’s pretty cold these days. That is the reason why I wanted this cream to provide just the right amount of hydration to my skin without leaving any residue on my face or causing any break outs as most of the night creams tend to be very heavy on my skin. I was very happy with the texture of this cream even though it is a night-time moisturiser, its texture is considerably light and non-sticky. It is of light peachy colour and doesn’t have any added fragrance, which is again a thumbs-up from me, as I find it really hard to understand that why some brands add fragrance to their skin care products?? It’s totally illogical.
Within two days of usage, my skin felt a lot more hydrated and calm. It didn’t break me out at all and is very gentle on my skin. As I found the texture to be light and my skin absorbed it within seconds, I started using it before applying makeup and girls, guess what?? It is an excellent moisturiser under makeup too. I was thrilled that my makeup was intact the whole day. The foundation went on smoothly and didn’t budge.
I have noticed a little reduction in the pores around the nose area. My skin is super soft and smooth with the regular use of this cream. As far as reduction in fine lines and firmness is concerned, it will take at least 2-3 months of regular usage and at this point in time, I don’t need that. I am just happy that I found a hydrating cream with good ingredients that suit my skin for winters.
I can safely say that this is one of my most favourite moisturisers I have ever used. It is expensive but it will last for a long time as a little goes a long way. I only need a little amount and it spreads luxuriously all over my face and neck. That’s why I would prefer if the package was a bottle with a pump or something like that so the product wasn’t so exposed to the environment and results remain consistent. However, it works amazingly. It moisturizes all day, it keeps my skin hydrated and it controls the oiliness on my t-zone and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. Also, I use it at night and it plumps my skin and brightens my complexion. The cream sinks into the skin very quickly. Basically, I can only say good things about this cream.
Pros of Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream:
- Very hydrating.
- Non-greasy texture.
- “Ultra-light” sinks in the skin.
- No added fragrance.
- Can easily be used under makeup.
- Smoother and refined skin texture.
- Recommended for all skin types.
- Helps in pore reduction.
- Moisturises all day long.
- Can easily be a HG night time moisturiser for sensitive skin beauties.
Cons of Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream:
- Even though the jar looks beautiful, I would have preferred a pump style packaging.
- Ingredient list has members of silicone family. That’s kind of a bummer but the SA assured me it also has good ingredients from the latest bio-performance range.

Yes, I will, as it is a lovely night-time cream.
