Shisiedo The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge (Regular) Review

I wonder if Night creams existed when the “Sleeping Beauty” was written , and whether the “Radiant Beauty”that the Prince saw on the Princess’es face was because of an effective night lotion she used before she went into her 100 year slumber. (Though it would have to be  SOME night cream to last a 100 years huh????). Well, disney stories aside, if there is one product i can claim to turn me into Sleeping Beauty (not because it makes me sleep- only antibiotics do that, but because it wakes me up more beautiful than usual) its the Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge Cream.

Here is how the story of this cream goes. I first tried this out, when i received this in my Blisscovered box as a sample (Where did the Blisscovered people dissapear by the way?) . I absolutely fell in love with it, but after about two weeks of use i lost my sample sized bottle somewhere on one of my many pre-wedding Hyderabad trips . Then i switched to using my Forest Essentials Sesame Oil as a substitute for a night cream. Until the boy was like ewwww- im not sleeping next to a person who smells of sesame seeds with a face seeped in oil :p Ick.  There goes the romance out of our relationship!! So after much deliberation i indulged and bought myself the Shiseido Night Cream !! I admit, the boy had a bit of a shocker when i told him the price but whenever he over-reacts about the price now all i say is – Remember the sesame oillll? That scares him into agreeing this is totally worth it ! :p

I didnt know then, but there are three variants in this- Light, Regular, and Enriched. The Enriched one is absolutely divine and if you have super dry skin then you NEED the Enriched one in your life. I just got the Regular one to test out and this is great too !!! I love how a tiny drop is so emollient and spreads all across my face and neck-it just glides and slips with total ease. I also love how it completely hydrates and moisturizes my skin, without me feeling like im wearing anything- its really so feathery and light on the skin. WHen i wake up, i definitely dont feel like my skin is stretched and dry, but it has this nice radiance and suppleness to it which i can only attribute to Shiseido! It might seem exorbitant but thats a really big bottle you get there so it will last you atleast 6 months . My only regret is not having bought the enriched one- now that winters are approaching!!

Left: Before Shiseido Night Cream, Right: After

Verdict: A+ (The enriched version is A+++ for me)

Price : Rs 1800 for 75 ml  (Available in Light, Regular and Enriched)

Recommendation: The Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge Cream has got to be the BEST night cream i have used till date. It keeps my skin so soft, supple and moisturized and i wake up with a certain silkiness and radiance  to my skin that cant be missed. I honestly love the Enriched version so if you have dry skin you should probably get that, but the regular one is pretty great too ! Yes its expensive but you can use it over six  months even with daily use so its worth it!

I guess I buy a tiny piggy bank and will add random 100rupees once in a while and once its all collected then will try this out cause I’m a sucker for a GOOD night cream. One thing for sure is that the khiels night creams are more expensive then this Shiseido brand lol. You convinced me that I need to invest in this one since it a 75ml of 1800rs ka bottle of night cream :p.

I just bought this a couple of weeks ago. I agree its a great product. Suits best for a dry skin skin like mine. I love their Sunscreen too. The most non greasy sunscreen ever! But not sure if it will last me about 6 months though coz I need a full pump atleast for my skin. Guess it depends on diff skin type.

Also, I have a few products from Sephora (in house branded) that I shopped lately. I would love to share the reviews of those with others. Coz they are such amazing stuff and worth sharing info about. Can you pls send the details of how I can send you the same?

Kritika November 5, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Haha! Oil slick! I’m using Grapeseed Oil as a night cream alternative :P


Sandhya November 5, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Mehak, you should so try the shiseodo skin care moisture with SPF during the day… I layer Mac tinted over this and voila… You have the best day time skin you ll ever see in the mirror…


mehak November 6, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Yknow i got a sample of that day one and im loving it !!! Mac tinted you say..hmm..hows the coverage?


Bhumika November 6, 2012 at 2:08 am

This sounds nice indeed..


Anshita @Vanity No Apologies November 7, 2012 at 7:45 pm

i got a shiseido serum sample in my blisscovered box but never got aroun to purchasing the full size!


Sandhya November 10, 2012 at 9:00 am

Mac tinted is sheer coverage.. I like it that way.. I don’t usually prefer heavy coverage ones…


mehak November 10, 2012 at 9:44 am

Ya i ndont mind sheer coverage, but i need atleast SOME coverage, like its not a regular moisturizer right?


Sandhya November 10, 2012 at 10:59 am

You can definitely Layer on for more coverage.. It helps me even out my skin tone.. I actually bought the much hyped Laura nervier tinted moisturizer and was so disappointed.. Broke out, and it oxidized after half a day, and I have a strong feeling the mua gave me the wrong color…


Sandhya November 10, 2012 at 11:02 am

Oops.. I meant Laura meRcier …. Damn the autocorrection thingy.. You know what, you had actually recommended Mac tm for me in Facebook.. That’s why and how I switched from Laura to mac
