IMBB Sponsored Product Review
Hello everyone, hope your week is going great 🙂
I am here with an IMBB Sponsored Review, and this is my second sponsored product review, a big thank you goes again to Rati and Sanjeev for their kindness, generosity and large-heartedness to give us such an awesome opportunity like this. This time, I opted for a skin care product. I guess we all have loads of cosmetics, but in order for the cosmetics we buy to do full justice and to make us look even better, all of us need a good skin care product too in our stash, to complement our (huge!) collection of colour cosmetics! So, with that having been said, let me come to the review of the above product.
What it is:
A time-fighting serum that delivers revolutionary solutions to counteract wrinkles, sagging, and dullness.
What it is formulated to do:
Restore your complexion’s ability to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for timeless skin. See results in just one day thanks to a revolutionary new ingredient: Bio-Corrective Complex. This youth-restoring powerhouse delivers visible improvement from the very first application, imparting radiance and smoothness to aging skin.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
In vitro tests showed that, after just one day, aged fibroblasts increased in strength, increasing the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, while time-fighting benefits intensify with daily use. This dermatologist tested serum works best when used before your favorite moisturizer.

My Views on Shiseido Bio Performance Super Corrective Serum:
According to the product description, it addresses 3 major skin concerns – fine lines/wrinkles, sagging and dullness. According to the SA who sold me this, this also addresses the problem of open pores. I have used this serum/gel cream twice a day for 28 days now and let me tell you that my skin has improved considerably, in areas of dullness, fine lines and it has also tackled the open pores quite a bit. I have always had oily/problem skin, so open pores have always been a concern for me.
However, regarding sagging skin, I can’t really say/didn’t really notice any ground-breaking results. I find that applying too much of the product causes extra oiliness, so I was applying just about 2 pumps all over my face, and I was not applying any other moisturizer over this, as this would do the job of moisturizing too. Now, please note that this acts as a great primer and skin smoother too before applying makeup, as it contains silica and talc and skin looks virtually flawless using this as a base before makeup, just as using a primer would do.
The texture is very smooth and leaves a completely soft and smooth layer or base. A few people who really know my skin (and all the problems that go with it !!), have asked me if I was using a new skin care product, as they claimed that my skin had a sort of healthy and radiant glow. However, having oily skin, this oils out the skin within about and hour and a half, and I need to use oil blotters or a mattifying/blot powder, else a lot of shine shows through.
Pros of Shiseido Bio Performance Super Corrective Serum:
- Classy packaging.
- Contains skin-friendly ingredients like Vitamin E, and soothing leaf and flower extracts.
- Does a good job of moisturizing the skin.
- Leaves skin soft, smooth and healthy-looking.
- Acts as a good primer/make-up base as well.
- Lives up to its claims of improving pores, fine lines and dullness.
- Adds a glow to the skin with regular use.
Cons of Shiseido Bio Performance Super Corrective Serum:
- A bit of an over-powering fragrance.
- I wonder if it really needed silica/talc?
Would I Recommend Shiseido Bio Performance Super Corrective Serum?
Yes, if you are looking for a luxury product to pamper your skin and make it look great and glowing.
