Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Cream Review

Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Cream Review

Nothing short of show-stopping, the Shiseido Essential Energy collection is powered by high-tech ReNeura Technology to awaken your skin’s sensors when they’ve lost their ability to respond to skincare.

The innovative range has been created to help your skin absorb hydrating and glow-boosting ingredients – and the star of the show has to be the Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Cream. Discover how the latest Japanese skincare tech can lock in hydration and prevent early signs of ageing with my full review…


The Most Important Thing About This Hydrating Cream Is…

Infused with Shiseido’s exclusive hyaluronic acid RED active, its deeply nourishing formula provides 3x longer-lasting hydration than the original Essential Energy Moisturising Cream. Plus, it activates your skin’s ability to produce deep moisture and prevent fine lines – in fact, it reduces the appearance of fine lines within two weeks: 74% of women found their lines less visible.



What Skin Type Is It For?

Its dermatologist-tested formula is suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. Formulated with non-comedogenic ingredients, the hydrating cream is ideal for combination skin types as it won’t block their pores.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re 20+ and you’re suffering with dryness and fine lines, you’ll love this dual-action cream – it will leave your skin with a healthy glow. Eco-conscious fans will enjoy its innovative refillable design too as it uses 81% less plastic compared to buying the original jar all over again.

Fan of a day cream with an SPF? Shiseido have an SPF20 variation of the Essential Energy Hydrating Cream that has all the same benefits but with the added protection of an SPF.


Hero Ingredients:

Powered by Shiseido’s hyaluronic acid and Ginseng RED, Essential Energy Cream activates your skin’s ability to produce double the hydration and prevent the first signs of ageing for fresher, healthier skin. The hyaluronic acid complex works from the outside, while the ginseng root extract works from the inside to penetrate your epidermis.

Added citrus unshiu peel extract activates your skin’s natural hydration powers. In fact, 93% of users said their skin felt immediately moisturised, while 85% found their skin was soft and supple after just one week of use.

What Does It Smell Like?

It’s infused with a fresh floral fragrance that combines a natural green aroma with energising citrus notes and a bouquet of florals.


How Do You Use The Product?

Morning and night, apply the Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Cream to cleansed skin after your serum. For best results, use your fingertips to apply to the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin and smooth gently over the face. Move from the centre of your face outwards until the cream has sunk in.


What’s Special About The Design?

If you’re a fan of Shiseido skincare, you’ll recognise the iconic pearlescent red design immediately. The pot itself is now refillable – simply pop out the inner and replace it with your Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Cream refill.



Dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic.
