I have plenty of skin issues, but my skin seldom breaks out. Even when I was young, it didn’t break out very often. Maybe I had a pimple about two years ago or so? And enlarged pores? No, I don’t really have those either.
So I was surprised when I received IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel from Shiseido a few weeks ago.
I love Shiseido. It’s a fabulous brand of luxury, effective Japanese skincare. I love my Shiseido Lash Curler that I use every day! But I wasn’t sure what I would do with the IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel.
Literally, two days after receiving Shiseido IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel during a period of several hot, humid early September days, my skin broke out! There it was, a nice big pimple on my face. Now was my chance to try out the Multi-Solution Gel!
The light green translucent gel comes in an attractive silver jar. I use a little paddle to scoop out a small amount. What’s so interesting about the gel in the jar is that the gel reformulates itself. When I opened the jar the next day, the gel was all smooth on top, like I had never removed any gel at all. It looked brand new, like this…
Also, the next day, my pimple was gone. Not getting less noticeable. Completely gone. And my skin wasn’t dried out at all like it used to be when I’d use Clearasil in an emergency years ago.
Last week, another pimple showed up. What’s with this? Well, another chance to use the Multi-Solution Gel. Again, next day, it was gone!
This is how Shiseido describes this multi-tasking skincare gel:
- This high-impact gel helps skin make an easy comeback from the effects of stress, erratic schedules and the environment. Its unique skin-conforming texture adheres well to problem areas, under and over makeup, to deliver effective ingredients. Breakouts, roughness, dryness and the look of visible pores, diminished. • Exclusive PhytoTarget Complex enhances skin’s natural moisture factors* to help build skin’s resistance to external stressors. • Salicylic Acid helps reduce acne and allows skin to heal. • Leaves skin looking supple and feeling smooth. • For all skin types. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist tested. *Fills skin surface cells with moisture, keeping them hydrated and plump.
The Shiseido IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel can be used under makeup or as a final step over moisturizer or foundation everyday to take care of blemishes, enlarged pores or even rough skin. It was created to address skin emergencies. And without over drying skin. From my experience, it does exactly what it says it will. Great product!
Shiseido IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel is priced at $38 for 1 oz. A little goes a long way, so the jar will last for quite a while. It can be purchased at Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Sephora, Shiseido.com and other fine retailers.
The folks at Shiseido were kind enough to include another jar of IBUKI Multi-Solution Gel. Plus it came in a really cute red silky makeup bag that can easily be used as an evening bag. And I’m going to give it away to one lucky reader.
