My name is Shelly and I’m a 43-year-old web geek that jumped off the deep end into the makeup and beauty world. I’ve got dry skin, fine lines starting to form, and some sun spots that I desperately wish to get rid of or cover up! Cameo appearances by my rescue cats Daffy, Polly, Ziva, and Merlin.

    Hahaha! I love that slight curve on Sheseido packaging. But it is a mind-bleep* 🤯 Also, your skin looked smooooooth in that close up right after application.

    • Geek Out of Water says:

      TOTALLY messes with my head!!!! 😂I’m having fun playing with this one. The wear time is just phenomenal for such a pretty finish.

  2. Deborah Neat says:

    Gonna have to try this! Thanks

  3. Pamela Roberts says:

    I splurged and bought this a few months ago. It did not play nice at all! It felt and looked very drying, accentuated all of the old-agey-bits where I was hoping it would be kind, and what was worse, it cost the equivalent of US$61.26 (yes I really felt the need to add the 26 cents – you can guess the purchase still irks me). No samples here and no returns, sigh.

    • Geek Out of Water says:

      That is a bummer! Even more so since you can’t return it 🙁 those 26 cents add up! Have you tried mixing the Shiseido with anything? I’ve had success so far mixing it with a couple oil drops. That’s all I’ve tried so far.

  4. Xzor says:

    Random nerd thought here: could you add a fun fact about the product you’re testing ..more often? I love knowing stuff like Shiseido is more than a century old brand… facts and science and data yayay
