You know what? I like writing reviews. I find them useful. And I am hoping I will be able provide the same type information to you, too. Useful and objective. I am trying a lot of products, so I could write a whole lot more. I just have to set myself a better schedule.
Now, today’s product is shu uemura’s new skin perfector oil. It started selling in Japan today. If you are wondering if to buy it or not, here is my take on it. ↓
Name shu uemura skin perfector
Contains I always check the ingredients. I just checking what is the concoction that I am putting on my skin. I might not know the exact proportion, but still. I think I am getting my nose excited on purpose by reading the ingredients. And back to the ingredients, this oil seems to contain a lot of botanical and essential oils. A lot means 99%. According to shu uemura. Sorry, I have no way of checking the veridity of this statement.
Texture: V-E-L-V-E-T-Y. Initially, I didn’t think to include this category, but this oil just created a descriptive category by itself. Given that it is indeed an oil I was expecting it to be leaky and forever staying on the exterior of my skin. Not the case for skin perfector. This is THE smoothest cosmetic product I have tried until now. And my skin quickly absorbed it. Congratulations shu uemura team, you again proved that you are indeed the skin oil master.Bravo!
Smell As mentioned before, I care a great deal about the way the product smells. I can feel faint scents of peppermint, sage and lavender, but nothing overbearing. Particularly important if you want to use it before you go to sleep. It has just enough bitterness to wake up if you use a few drops in the morning, though.
Price Pricey. No surprise here. shu umeura is a luxury brand.
Buy it? For whom? Agh, well this one, this one makes the perfect gift for yourself or for a precious friend and/or mother. Yes, if you can afford it, buy it.
Other thoughts on it. Honestly, I prefer to use products that have as many natural ingredients as possible, and not chemically produced. Sorry, petrol industry. (Jump of joy for agriculture) And this oil has 99% of its ingredients naturally sourced. I am not sure about the 30 ml, but given that you are using just a few drops, it might last longer than expected. My cosmetic products always last longer than I think they will. The fact that has versatile uses makes me like it even more. I might ditch one of those moisturising creams for this oil.
Please let me know your thoughts if you have tried it, too. Questions are also welcome. Until next time and thank you for reading!
