Hi, my name is Trudi, and I'm a Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate addict. Here are five reasons to try this incredible pre-serum concentrate.
1. What makes it different to other serums?
For starters, it's a pre-serum that makes everything else you put on your skin much more effective. The updated formula has been enhanced by a blend of botanical extracts including reishi mushroom, known as the 'mushroom of immortality'. This and iris root extract works to enhance and support the skins immune system, strengthening its ability to defend itself against our harsh environment.
2. What ingredients does Ultimune champion?
The mushroom and iris root extracts are powerful anti-oxidants. Once these ingredients are blended with polysaccharides (sugar proteins), they hydrate and firm the skin from the inside out. The addition of Bulgarian rose water, yeast extract, gingko, Biloba leaf extract, shiso, and thyme boost the clarity and further calm and nourish skin. That lineup is sweetened by the delicate green fragrance, courtesy of rose and lotus flower.
3. Is it worth splurging on this serum?
I am the first to say that super expensive skincare is not always your best option. It’s more important to use skincare that is tailored to your skin type, and its specific needs. Every woman should want healthy-looking, firm skin that can cope with the day to day stresses of life. Ultimune is your insurance policy against free-radical damage. It fits effortlessly into any routine and can be layered over other products to help boost their effectiveness.
4. Who can use Ultimune?
Anyone, at any age. By the time you reach 40, your skin has lost 50 per cent of its natural hyaluronic acid – a liquid-like gel your body makes to keep skin looking hydrated and smooth. Four out of the five wrinkles you see on your face is due to external aggressors such as pollution, smoking and stress. Ultimune steps in to eliminate harmful toxins and rejuvenate your skin, protecting your complexion from our harsh urban lifestyle.
5. Lasting impression?
Don’t be scared to try new skincare, invest in your face. Don't miss out on the powerful, firming or lifting benefits of Ultimune - you will be surprised and delighted by how quickly you see results.
How do you apply Ultimune?
How do you apply Ultimune?
Morning and evening after cleansing and before you apply serums or moisturisers. Pump twice, onto the palm of the hand, warm the concentrate, and then smooth it evenly over the face and neck. I also press Ulitmiune over my makeup to refresh the look of tired, dehydrated skin.
Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, comes in three sizes 30ml's, 50ml's, 75ml's, priced from $129.
Ultimune for your eyes

If you are concerned about the visible lines under your eyes, the same anti-ageing goodness found in Ultimune pre-serum is also harnessed in an eye product. Ideal for treating the delicate skin around the eye area, which is the first to show the signs of fatigue and ageing. Bulgarian rose water, perilla, gingko, and thyme strengthen, and soften this thin skin, while white birch boosts moisture levels to treat those fine lines.
