Shu Uemura Phyto-Black Lift Lotion and Night Cream

Hi all!

It's has been a lot of events lately that I really need to make effort writing the reviews ^__^ But, it is an enjoyable experience, busy for sure, but it's my passion. Some of you will definitely feel the same, very busy in daily activity yet you enjoyed it. Little that we know that it would take a toll on our skin, so not just health, but the beauty of our skin as well.

When you're still young, you can simply ignore some of the signs since their not so visible, the regeneration progress and natural skin protection from our body is still very active and let's just say more alive than when you reach older years.

But don't just sit around and wait until you're late, some anti aging can be used from around 18 while some when you're 25. But some according to your skin's need, like Shu Uemura's Phyto-Black Lift.

Let's read the
Details from shuuemura.com:

*4: glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) play a crucial role to help bind various components of the skin’s matrix. With age, production of these macromolecues slows, leaving the extra-cellular matrix gradually weakend.

Reading from the ingredients itself you can take comfort in the efficacy. One thing comes my mind, usually anti aging and firming skincare especially the night one are so thick and heavy. Shu Uemura's Phyto-Black Lift Renewing Night Cream does seems thick on the first glance, but when I touch it feels bouncy like a gel texture. The ability to absorb also very good, like they are covering my skin very well and there's a firming feeling instantly. The lotion which is used before the cream gives me a radiance. The watery liquid is an indulgence. I always a fan of Shu's lotion, in any kind ^__^

What you'll love:

The luxurious yet simple black packaging, somehow for me skincare in black is always  interesting and intriguing XD.
The scent from the lotion which is mild and the night cream which is so lovely and I just love it on my face. Flowery scent without being overwhelming.
The texture of the watery lotion where it prepares the skin for the night cream is like Batman and Robin, dynamic duo alright.

And like any skincare, be patient in using it, it's not a visible 180 degree difference in one night. It takes time. For me, using this night cream is a time that I'm looking for ^__^ pampered in every ways. Kinda like an all in one night cream, for anti aging, increase firmness, relaxing, boosting collagen, detoxifying, reducing lines, and the comfort when using it. Say bye bye to heavy night cream and hello to beautiful skin from Phyto-Black Lift Radiance Boosting Lotion and Renewing Firming Night Cream. Use the serum (concentrate) for more anti-wrinkle action.
