I received a 5-ml sample of Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Day Cream (what a mouthful!) in my November BDJ Box. Here’s the product from my unboxing article:
Here’s a shot of the sample tube only:
The price of the full-sized 50-ml product is Php3100. It’s definitely a premium product (it’s Shiseido!), so I’m quite happy to be able to try out this product.
This is a day cream. I usually put this on after my Celeteque moisturizer (yes I have a separate dedicated moisturizer; can’t have too much moisturizer at my age), which effectively makes it a redundant product except for the happy fact that it has SPF15.
As you can see, I squirted out a little too much product in this shot. It looks like any day cream, and has a pleasant mild scent. I concentrate applying this product in the areas where I would most likely develop wrinkles: temples and forehead. I also put more on my cheeks for the SPF effect.
After roughly only three weeks of use, I have to admit I don’t see any big difference with using just the moisturizer. It’s hard to tell, since I’m probably a little too young to use an anti-wrinkle product. On the other hand, maybe in the long run it does resist the development of wrinkles and I just had too short a time to see the effects.
Will I buy? Probably not yet. I plan to start seriously considering anti-aging products when I hit 40.
