Shiseido is a Japanese line of high-end skin care treatments that has been around for decades. You may have encountered this line in select department stores at some point or another. It is additionally available online through the official website, and sites like Sephora. In this review, we are going to focus on Shiseido Super Refining Essence, which is a topical serum/cream offered in the Shiseido line. Like most anti-aging treatments, it is directed to be used each morning and night, after cleansing the face. It sells for $76 (1.8 fluid ounces).

Product Details

Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Refining Essence is marketed as a multi-benefit complex, and it aims to assist women with improving skin smoothness and overall radiance. According to the official website, this product works best in conjunction with Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Exfoliating Discs. Not only does Shiseido Super Refining Essence hydrate the skin, but it additionally diminishes fine lines and combats dullness. Similar to ingredients like Retinol or Vitamin A, this treatment naturally exfoliates the facial skin cells. It contains a unique Bio-Regenerine Technology.

The exclusive Bio-Regenerine Technology used in Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Refining Essence offers three different active components. These are Rose Apple Leaf Extract (this is a powerful antioxidant that combats free radicals), Bio-Energy Infuser (this ingredient promotes skin cell turnover), and Super Plant Bio-Exfoliant (encourages natural cell exfoliation). This anti-aging formula is actually pitched as an “exfoliator,” and is claimed to dramatically reduce wrinkles over time. Unfortunately the complete list of ingredients for Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Refining Essence is not provided on the official website. Although a money-back guarantee is not mentioned, often it is possible to return products like this to the cosmetic counter in department stores that sell Shiseido. However, you need to have purchased it from the store (not online), and you will need the sales receipt.

The Good

  • As you may know, Shiseido is a brand that has been around for many years.
  • The primary ingredients/complex used in this product is explained.
  • This topical remedy aims to assist in several ways with anti-aging.

The Bad

  • All of the ingredients used in this product are not disclosed.
  • Shiseido does not provide free trial samples of this product through the website.
  • Women with sensitive skin may have negative reactions to Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Refining Essence.
  • Shiseido is not that easy to come by, since many department stores do not offer this line.

The Bottom Line

Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Refining Essence comes across like many anti-aging treatments these days. A lot of promises are made, but too little information is provided. It would be refreshing to see all of the ingredients used in this formula, along with some clinical trial results. While Shiseido may be a reputable beauty line, it is still important for women to know exactly what they are buying.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go


(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
